If you are concerned that we have not complied with your legal rights or applicable privacy laws, you may contact the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), the UK regulator for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk) or any other competent data protection authority in the relevant jurisdiction. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO or the other relevant authority, so please contact us in the first instance.
We only process Personal Data when we have a legal basis to do so, in any of the following circumstances:
Where we need to collect Personal Data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that Personal Data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with our Services). In this case, we may have to cancel the Services you have with us, but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
The type of information, including any Personal Data, that Framework collects from you will depend on how you interact with us as follows:
Information that you provide...
We collect information that you are either requested to or volunteer to provide to us when you use our Services. This includes:
Information we automatically collect...
We collect some information automatically when you visit, access, or use the Services. Such information includes:
Information that we collect from third parties...
We may also obtain information from third parties and combine that with other information we collect through the Services. This includes:
Any access or restrictions that we may have to such information from such a third party is in accordance with the privacy notice and procedure of that third party.
We process your information to operate, provide, and improve the Services. More particularly where such information contains Personal Data the information and purpose for which it is used is as follows:
We will only use your Personal Data for the purposes for which we collected it unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us. If we need to use your Personal Data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your Personal Data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by following the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you.
We may share Personal Data about you as follows:
Service providers . We may engage third parties as sub-processors to process Personal Data. These third parties may provide services such as virtual computing, storage and analytics services. We may share Personal Data with the following parties:
Displaying the Services as intended . When you submit Personal Data in the App in connection with creating an account, Personal Data that you include in your bio details will be visible to other members of the App.
A change in our business . If we engage in certain types of corporate transactions (like in the event of a restructuring or the sale of all or a significant part of our business) some or all Personal Data may be shared or transferred, subject to standard confidentiality arrangements.
Compliance with laws . When we in good faith believe disclosure is necessary to: (a) comply with any applicable law, regulation, or legal process; (b) to enforce our agreements and policies; (c) to protect the security of the Services; or (d) to protect you, us, or others from harm or illegal activities.
Where Personal Data is shared with entities in third countries without an adequacy decision, an appropriate transfer mechanism such as the EU Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs), the UK International Data Transfer Agreement (IDTA) or the UK Addendum to the SCCs will be used to protect your data in such jurisdictions.
We are designing our system with your security and privacy in mind. We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts the information you input. We also maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personal information. We are confident that we are using the latest state-of-the-art technology to ensure that your information is fully protected.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your Personal Data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your Personal Data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your Personal Data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected Personal Data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your Personal Data. For residents of the UK and EEA you have the following rights in relation to your Personal Data, which can be exercised by emailing email@example.com :
Right of access: If we are processing your Personal Data, you can request a copy of that information.
Right to rectification: If your Personal Data is inaccurate or incomplete, you are entitled to ask that we correct or complete it, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us. If we share your Personal Data with others, we will tell them about the correction where possible.
Right to erasure: You may ask us to erase your Personal Data in some circumstances, such as when we no longer need it or you withdraw your consent. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons of which you will be notified, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Right to restrict processing: You may ask us to restrict or ‘block' the processing of your Personal Data in certain circumstances, such as where you contest the accuracy of the data or object to us processing it.
Right to data portability: You have the right to obtain your Personal Data from us that you consented to give us or that was provided to us as necessary in connection with our contract with you. We will give you your Personal Data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You may reuse it elsewhere.
Right to object: You may ask us at any time to stop processing your Personal Data where we process your data based on our legitimate interests, provided no compelling legitimate grounds for further processing exist.
Rights in relation to automated decision-making and profiling: You have the right to be free from decisions based solely on automated processing of your personal information, including profiling unless this is necessary for a contract between you and us or you provide your explicit consent to this use.
Right to withdraw consent: If we rely on your consent to process your personal information, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time, but this will not affect any processing of your data that has already taken place.
Right to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority: If you have a concern about our privacy practices, including the way we handled your personal information, you can report it to the ICO at ico.org.uk.
To exercise any of the above rights, or if you have any questions relating to your rights, please email firstname.lastname@example.org . We may need to request specific information from you when you exercise your rights to confirm your identity and to speed up our response. We may not be able to fulfil your request if we are not able to identify you. You will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
