Information collection and use

How do we collect information?
The Company collects information in two possible ways:
  1. When you directly give it to us (“Directly Provided Data”)
    When you sign up for our site, to use our services or communicate with us, you may choose to voluntarily give us certain information – for example, by filling in text boxes or completing registration forms. All this information requires a direct action by you at that time in order for us to receive it.
  2. When you give us permission to obtain from other accounts (“User Authorised Data”)
    Depending on your settings or the privacy policies for other online services, you may give us permission to obtain information from your account with those other services. For example, this can be via social media or third parties.

How long do we keep your data for?
The Company will not retain your personal information longer than necessary. We will hold onto the information you provide either while your account is in existence, or as needed to be able to provide the Services to you, or for as long as is necessary to provide support-related reporting and trend analysis only.

If legally required or if it is reasonably necessary to meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our Terms and Conditions, we may also retain some of your information for a limited period of time as required, even after you have closed your account or it is no longer needed to provide the Services to you.

How we protect your personal data?
We will not transfer your personal data without your consent. We have implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect personal data from loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration or destruction. Please note however that where you are transmitting information to us over the internet this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. For any payments which we take from you online we will use a recognised online secure payment system. We will notify you promptly in the event of any breach of your personal data which might expose you to serious risk.

You have the right to have your data erased and for processing to cease in the following circumstances:
  • Where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected and / or processed
  • Where consent is withdrawn
  • Where the individual objects to processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest for continuing the processing
  • The personal data was unlawfully processed or otherwise breached data protection laws
  • To comply with a legal obligation
You have the right to receive confirmation that your data is being processed and to have access to your personal data and supplementary information which means the information which should be provided in a privacy notice.

You have the right to data portability and provide you with your data, so you can reuse it for your own purpose or across different services. The data should be provided in a commonly used machine- readable format and to be send to another controller if requested.

Registration forms
The Company will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information, gathered as a result of filling out the site registration form, to anyone.

Please note though that, if you have shared any information with others through social media channels, that information may remain visible, even if your account is deleted.
  • You are also free to close your account through our account settings. If you do so, your account will be deactivated. However, we may retain archived copies of your information as required by law or for legitimate business purposes (including to help address fraud and spam).
