Third-Party Services

The Services we provide may contain features or links to websites and services provided by third parties. Any information you provide on third-party sites or services is provided directly to the operators of such services and is subject to those operators’ policies, if any, governing privacy and security, even if accessed through the Service. We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of third-party sites or services to which links or access are provided through the Service. We encourage you to learn about third parties’ privacy and security policies before providing them with information.

We will not share any Personal Data with third-parties for their direct marketing purposes to the extent prohibited by law. If our practices change, we will do so in accordance with applicable laws and will notify you in advance.

 

Minors’ Privacy

Protecting the privacy of minors is especially important. Our Service is not directed to minors under the age of 16, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Data from persons under the age of 16 without obtaining parental consent.

 

Data Security

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We use ISO certified cloud services and applications. We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorised alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing of the Personal Data in our possession. This includes, for example, firewalls, password protection and other access and authentication controls.

However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or store on the Service, and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If you believe your Personal Data has been compromised, please contact us as set forth in the [“How to Contact Us”] section.

If we learn of a security systems breach, we will inform you of the occurrence of the breach in accordance with applicable law.

 

Data Retention

We only retain the Personal Data collected from a User for as long as the User’s account is active or otherwise for a limited period of time as long as we need it to fulfill the purposes for which we have initially collected it, unless otherwise required by law. We will only retain and use information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

 

Privacy Settings

Although we may allow you to adjust your privacy settings to limit access to certain Personal Data, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures on the Service. Additionally, we cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your information. Further, even after information posted on the Service is removed, caching and archiving services may have saved that information, and other users or third parties may have copied or stored the information available on the Service. We cannot and do not guarantee that information you post on or transmit to the Service will not be viewed by unauthorised persons.

 

Training

The Company will ensure that staff are adequately trained regarding their data protection responsibilities. Individuals whose roles require regular access to personal information, or who are responsible for implementing this policy or responding to subject access requests under this policy, will receive additional training to help them understand their duties and how to comply with them.

 

Data Controller and Data Processor

We do not own, control or direct the use of any of the Client Data stored or processed by a Client or User via the Service. Only the Client or Users are entitled to access, retrieve and direct the use of such Client Data. We are largely unaware of what Client Data is actually being stored or made available by a Client or User to the Service and do not directly access such Client Data except as authorised by the Client, or as necessary to provide Services to the Client and its Users.

Because we do not collect or determine the use of any Personal Data contained in the Client Data and because it does not determine the purposes for which such Personal Data is collected, the means of collecting such Personal Data, or the uses of such Personal Data, we are not acting in the capacity of data controller in terms of the European Union’s Directive 95/46/EC on data privacy or the European Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and do not have the associated responsibilities under GDPR.

We should be considered only as a processor on behalf of our Clients and Users as to any Client Data containing Personal Data that is subject to the requirements of GDPR. Except as provided in this Privacy Policy, We do not independently cause Client Data containing Personal Data stored in connection with the Services to be transferred or otherwise made available to third parties, except to third party subcontractors who may process such data on our behalf in connection with our provision of Services to Clients. Such actions are performed or authorised only by the applicable Client or User.

The Client or the User is the data controller under the Directive for any Client Data containing Personal Data, meaning that such party controls the manner such Personal Data is collected and used as well as the determination of the purposes and means of the processing of such Personal Data.

We are not responsible for the content of the Personal Data contained in the Client Data or other information stored on our servers (or our subcontractors’ servers) at the discretion of the Client or User nor are we responsible for the manner in which the Client or User collects, handles disclosure, distributes or otherwise processes such information.

If we modify the Policy, we will make it available through the Service, and indicate the date of the latest revision, and will comply with applicable law. Your continued use of the Service after the revised Policy has become effective indicates that you have read, understood and agreed to the current version of the Policy.
