The Service shall store information about the User’s latest visit to the system in order to ensure high quality of the services provided, which shall be adapted to individual needs and interests of the User.
4. Sharing and disclosure of information
The User’s information may be transferred to other companies owned wholly or partially, as well as directly or indirectly by the Controller for achieving the purposes, for which the data has been collected.
The Service may share and disclose the User’s information to third-party service providers that provide services to the Service such as website hosting, payment processing, data analysis, fulfilment of orders, information technology and related infrastructure provision, customer service, email and messages delivery, auditing and other services. These service providers will only have access to the information necessary to perform the relevant functions. These third parties are obligated not to disclose or use User’s information for other purposes. In some cases, these service providers are not strictly required to provide the services for the Service, but they help to make the Service better. Cooperation with third-party service providers with the aim to make the services better is the Service’s legitimate interest (to ensure the adequate performance of the contract with the User).
The Service may transfer portions of the Users’ information to third countries (including those located outside the EU). For example, personal data may be stored on servers located in a third country. We have established legal mechanisms to ensure that Users’ rights are protected irrespective of such transfers.
The Service may share the Users’ information with third parties, including law enforcement, public or governmental agencies, or private litigants, within or outside the User’s country of residence, to comply with legal, regulatory, and law enforcement requests and protect the Service’s legitimate interests and rights, as described above.
5. Data protection
The Controller shall take all reasonable measures to protect personal data of the User from unauthorised access by third parties.
The Service conducts review of candidates at the time of hire or before entering into a contract with independent contractors (to the extent permitted or facilitated by applicable laws and countries). Also, all employees and contractors of the Service who perform functions related to the access and usage of Users’ personal data and other information have signed non-disclosure agreements. The Service provides ongoing privacy and security training.
All personal data collected and processed by the Service shall be stored on one of the several protected servers. There shall be no access to such servers outside the corporate network or contractors that signed the Non-disclose agreement.
Nevertheless, while the Service implements safeguards designed to protect the Users’ information, no security system is impenetrable and the Service cannot guarantee that data, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on servers or systems owned by the Service, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by third parties.
6. User’s rights
According to applicable laws, the Users have the following rights (inter alia):
Every User has account settings that help him/her access, rectify or delete information that the User provides to the Service. User can change his/her settings on their devices to either consent or oppose the collection of the personal information or display of the corresponding notifications. Every User has a right to object to the processing of his/her personal data.
Mobile applications have permission systems for specific types of device data and notifications such as location as well as push notifications. Please note that certain services may lose full functionality because of deactivation of certain functions.
User can contact the support of the Service (email@example.com) with any questions regarding these settings.
Please note that the Service may reject requests for certain reasons, including if the request is unlawful or if it may violate the rights of another user or a third party.
In certain countries, the Users have the right to lodge complaints with the appropriate data protection authorities if they have concerns about how their personal data are processed.
7. Messages and Notifications
Occasionally, the Service may need to contact the User. These messages can be delivered by email, by push notifications or by telephone for the purposes of provision of the Users with support or for other purposes (for example, provide the Users with information regarding products and features that Users may find interesting). These notifications could be sent with prior consent of the User or in response to the Users’ requests. The User may control marketing emails and/or messages through his/her account settings as well as through the opt-out link included in the marketing emails or messages.
If the User give his/her consent to receive notifications, he/her confirms that the Service shall have the right to provide User’s email addresses and phone numbers to third parties in order to deliver notifications and messages to the User.
Some messages may be published on the Service (for example, messages from other Users with propositions to buy/sell or certain Service’s messages). Announcements published on the Service shall be deemed delivered to the User once they are published.
Some messages are service-related and necessary to provide services by the Service and/or performance of the User agreement (non-marketing messages, for example, emails related to the Users’ accounts, security-related notifications, etc.). The User agrees that such messages can be sent to him/her.
The Service shall bear no liability for the use of the message sending form placed on the Service by other Users and/or automated systems (robots).
The Service shall bear no liability for the use of the phone numbers and electronic addresses placed by the User on the Service pages by other Users and/or robots.
8. Access to and deletion of the User‘s information
The User can exercise his/her rights to access, change or delete his/her personal information at any time.
In order to easily access, view or update personal data (where available) or to update subscription preferences, the User should enter his/her account and visit the “Account Settings” section.
Please note that the Service will not be able to provide access to the services if the User revokes his/her consent. Also, the Service will not be able to provide certain services if the User deletes his/her account/data.
In order to ensure the Users’ protection, support managers of the Service may only respond to requests for personal information sent from the email addresses the Users use to send requests, and the Service may need to verify the relevant User‘s identity before implementing his/her request. The Service will try to comply with the User‘s request as soon as possible, but it may require some time.
8. Data retention
The Service keeps the Users’ information only as long as needed for legitimate business purposes and as permitted by applicable legal requirements.
Personal data is deleted or anonymized on a regular basis when it is no longer relevant for the purposes, for which it has been collected.
9. Final provisions
The User shall bear liability for the accuracy and reliability of any information and data provided by him/her.
The services are not designed for individuals under the age of eighteen (18). The Service will not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18 if they use the Service.
If the User has any questions or complaints, he/she may contact the support by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a letter to the following address: Ahtri tn 6a, Kesklinna district, Tallinn city, Harju county, 10151, Estonia.
