When we do so we are subject to various laws in the United States and the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European Union (including in the United Kingdom), and we are responsible as “controller” of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.

If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy or our practices, you may not use our Services. This Privacy Policy may change from time to time and your continued use of our Services constitutes your acceptance of those changes. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy periodically.

  1. Personal Information We Collect About You. As used in this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. Other information we may collect is considered “Anonymous Information,” meaning information that does not directly identify you, and cannot reasonably be linked with other data to identify you individually or your household.

We may collect and use the following personal information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonable capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household:

  • Email Address or User Name

  • For the performance of our contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering into a contract;
  • For our legitimate interests or those of a third party; or
  • Where you have given consent.

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests.

  1. Promotional Communications. We may use your personal information to send you updates (by email, text message, telephone or post) about our Services, including exclusive offers, promotions or new products and Services.

We have a legitimate interest in processing your personal information for promotional purposes (see above “How and why we use your personal information”). This means we do not usually need your consent to send you promotional communications. However, where consent is needed, we will ask for this consent separately and clearly.

We will always treat your personal information with the utmost respect and never sell or share it with other organizations for marketing purposes.

You have the right to opt out of receiving promotional communications at any time by:

  • Contacting us;
  • Using the “unsubscribe” link in emails or “STOP” number in texts; or

We may ask you to confirm or update your marketing preferences if you instruct us to provide further Services in the future, or if there are changes in the law, regulation, or the structure of our business.

  1. Who We Share Your Personal Information With. We routinely share personal information with:
  • Service providers we use to help deliver our Services to you, such as payment service providers;
  • Other third parties we use to help us run our business, such as marketing agencies, website hosts, maintenance services, database management, or web analytics; and
  • Third parties approved by you, including social media sites you choose to link your account to or third-party payment providers.

We only allow our service providers to handle your personal information if we are satisfied they take appropriate measures to protect your personal information. We also impose contractual obligations on service providers relating to ensure they can only use your personal information to provide services to us and to you.

We may disclose and exchange information with law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.

We may also need to share some personal information with other parties, such as potential buyers of some or all of our business or during a re-structuring. We will typically anonymize information, but this may not always be possible. The recipient of the information will be bound by confidentiality obligations.

We will not share your personal information with any other third party. Note that we may share Anonymous Information with third parties.

  1. Where Your Personal Information is Held. Information may be held at our offices and those of our third party agencies, service providers, representatives and agents as described above (see above: “Who We Share Your Personal Information with”).

Some of these third parties may be based outside the European Economic Area. For more information, including on how we safeguard your personal information when this occurs, see below: “Transferring Your Personal Information Out of the EEA”.

  1. How Long Your Personal Information Will Be Kept. We will keep your personal information while you have an account with us or while we are providing Services to you. Thereafter, we will keep your personal information for as long as is necessary:
  • To respond to any questions, complaints or claims made by you or on your behalf;
  • To show that we treated you fairly; or
  • To keep records required by law.

We will not retain your personal information for longer than necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. Different retention periods apply for different types of personal information.

When it is no longer necessary to retain your personal information, we will delete or anonymize it.

  1. Transferring Your Personal Information Out of the EEA. To deliver Services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to share your personal information outside the European Economic Area (EEA), e.g.:
  • With our offices outside the EEA;
  • With your and our service providers located outside the EEA;
  • If you are based outside the EEA; or
  • Where there is an international dimension to the Services we are providing to you.

These non-EEA countries do not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA. In particular, you are advised that the United States of America uses a sectoral model of privacy protection that relies on a mix of legislation, governmental regulation, and self-regulation. We will, however, ensure the transfer complies with applicable data protection laws and all personal information will be secure. These transfers are subject to special rules under European and UK data protection law. If you are located in the EEA or the United Kingdom, we will only transfer your personal information if:

  • you provide your explicit consent;
  • the country to which the personal information will be transferred has been granted a European Commission adequacy decision; or
  • we have put in place appropriate safeguards in respect of the transfer, for example if we have entered into EEA standard contractual clauses and required additional safeguards with the recipient, or the recipient is a party to binding corporate rules approved by an EEA or UK supervisory authority.

By using the Sites or the Services, you consent to the transfer of all such information to the United States of America which may not offer an equivalent level of protection to that required in the EEA and to the processing of that information by us on its servers located in the United States of America as described in this Privacy Policy.

If you would like further information, please contact us (see “Contact Information” below).

  1. Keeping Your Personal Information Secure. We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost or used or accessed in an unauthorized way. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to access it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorized manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.

While we strive to protect your privacy, due to many reasons, including the inherent security flaws in the internet, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose to us and, as such, you agree that your disclosure of such information is at your own risk.
