This Privacy Policy covers Our treatment of personally identifiable and other information that We collect and receive, including information related to your past use of the Website and Service. “Data” and “information” includes information about You that is personally identifiable like your name, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available. Where applicable we explicitly point out the use of personally identifiable data within this document. All other data is anonymous to us or is used pseudonymously.

The Privacy Policy also gives information about cookies; Our and third parties' use of cookies; and how you may disable such cookies.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to people that We do not employ or manage.

You must treat such information as confidential, not disclosing it to any third party. There is a password reset procedure in case you forget your password, but please notify us of any breach of security.

We highly recommend to choose a strong password (e.g. "itslongWITHCAPSand99numbers!!") and you log out from your account at the end of every session.

Accuracy of information

It is a condition of your use of the Website that all the information you provide on the Website is correct, current and complete. In the future, you may be asked to provide certain registration details or other information.

Information we collect and use

We collect personally identifiable information when you register for a Website account, when you use our Service, when you enter promotions and when you visit the Website. We may combine information (including personally identifiable information) about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.

When you register with the Website we ask for personally identifiable information such as your name and email address.

We collect information about your transactions with us and with some of our business partners.

We also automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, software and hardware attributes, and the page you requested. Once you sign in to the Website or Service you are no longer anonymous to Us and your usage data will be connected to your account.

We use information (including anonymous and pseudonymous information, as well as personally identifiable information) for the following general purposes: to personalise the advertising and content you see, fulfil your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.

We may transfer your personal information for the general purposes set out above to any group company worldwide, and they may use your personal information as set forth below.

Information sharing and disclosure

We do not rent, sell, or share information about you (including personally identifiable information) with other people or non-affiliated companies except to provide products or services you've requested, when we have your permission, or for the following purposes:

  • to provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with Us under confidentiality agreements. These companies may use such information to help Us communicate with you (to the extent consented by you) about offers from Us and our marketing partners. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information.
  • to respond to court orders, legal process, or to any legitimate request by authorities with which compliance is required, or to establish or exercise legal rights or defend against legal claims.
  • to share, when we believe it is necessary, such information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of this Agreement, or as otherwise required by law.
  • to transfer such information about you if We acquire, or are acquired by or merged with, another company. In this event We will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

We display targeted advertisements based on anonymised or pseudonymised data and information, and We may also display targeted advertisements based on personally identifiable information.

Advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click targeted ads meet the targeting criteria - for example, women ages 18-24 from a particular geographic area. We do not provide any personally identifiable information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.
