Throughout this Policy we use the term “Designated Countries” to refer to countries in the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA), and Switzerland. If you reside in the Designated Countries, you have a number of important rights we want you to be aware of pursuant to the European General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”). These rights will be indicated by reference to the Designated Countries where applicable.

This Policy does not apply to information collected by:
Any third party, including through any application or content (including advertising) that may link to or be accessible from the Websites and Mobile Apps. What information we collect
We collect information to provide better services to all our users––from remembering user preferences to contacting you regarding services or opportunities that may be of interest to you. The information we collect, and how that information is used, depends on how you use our services.
We may collect and process some or all of the following types of information from you:
Information that you provide to us by filling in forms or creating an account on the Websites and Mobile Apps. This may include information provided at the time of registering to use the Websites and Mobile Apps or requesting further information or services, such as: Full name, email address, mailing address, and IP address.

Details of your visits to the Websites and Mobile Apps including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, and other communication data. The provision of your full name, e-mail address, and IP address are required from you if you choose to create an account on our Websites and Mobile Apps. We will inform you at the point of collecting information from you, whether you are required to provide the information to us.
We may occasionally contact you through email, and/or notices posted on our Websites and Mobile Apps. We may send you messages about the availability of our services, security, or other service-related issues. We may also send messages about how to use the services, network updates, and promotional messages from us. You may contact us at any time using our Contact Information below to change your communication preferences. Please be aware that you cannot opt-out of receiving certain service messages from us, including security and legal notices.
We will only collect and process your information where we have lawful bases to do so. Lawful bases include but are not limited to consent (where you have given consent), contract (where processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you (e.g. to deliver the services you have requested)) and legitimate interests.
If you have any questions about the lawful bases upon which we collect and use your personal data, please contact us using the Contact Information provided below.
We may need to share your information when we believe it’s required by law or to help protect the rights and safety of you, us, or others. It is possible that we will need to disclose information about you when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce our agreements with you, (3) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, (4) protect the security or integrity of our Service (such as by sharing with companies facing similar threats); or (5) exercise or protect the rights and safety of the Company, our users, personnel, or others. We attempt to notify you about legal demands for your personal data when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. We may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but we do not promise to challenge every demand.
For external processing
Merger, acquisition, or sale of assets
We take industry-standard security measures to ensure that all of your personal data is kept secure, including security measures to prevent personal data from being accidentally lost, used, or accessed in an unauthorized way, for the duration of your use of our services. We limit access to your personal data to those who have a genuine business need to know 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.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Websites and Mobile Apps, therefore any transmission remains at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features in order to prevent unauthorized access.
Cross-Border Data Transfers
We may store and use your data outside your country. We may process data both inside and outside of the United Kingdom and will rely on legally-provided mechanisms to lawfully transfer data across borders. Countries where we process data may have laws which are different, and potentially not as protective, as the laws of your own country. In many cases, we will use European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses as a legal mechanism for data transfers from the Designated Countries. These clauses are contractual commitments between companies transferring personal data, binding them to protect the privacy and security of your data. These clauses are designed to help safeguard your privacy rights and give you remedies in the unlikely event of the misuse of your personal data.
Keeping your information up to date
If your personal information details change, you may contact us to request an update or correction using our Contact Information below. We will endeavor to update your personal data information within thirty (30) days of any new or updated personal data being provided to us, in order to ensure that the information we hold about you is as accurate and up to date as possible.
Where we store your information
The information that we collect from you and process as a result of your use of the services may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the Designated Countries. It may also be processed by our employees operating outside the Designated Countries who work for us. Such employees may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your orders, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data and accessing this Websites and Mobile Apps, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.
How long we keep your information
There is other way to control the information we collect - browser settings: For example, you can configure your browser to indicate when we have set a cookie in your browser. You can also configure your browser to block all cookies from a specific domain or all domains. But remember that our services may rely on cookies to function properly, for things like remembering your user preferences.
