INFORMATION WE COLLECT.
We collect information that you provide to us directly, such as your username, name, address, email, and phone number, as well as other information that could be used to identify you.
We also gather the IP address of sources, such as your computer or devices.
Information about you may also be gathered from other sources, such as third-party Web sites and social networking sites. Contact information, search term, and search result information may also be procured from business information database providers.
We send push notifications from time to time to update you about feature updates, events, or promotions, both via email and via a notification on our platform.
We may link information we store within our analytics software to personal information you submit within our platform or on our website.
How do we use your information?
We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:
- Where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you or with a customer.
- where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
- Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation
Generally, we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data other than in relation to sending you marketing or third-party direct marketing communications via email or text message. You have the right to withdraw your consent to marketing at any time by contacting us or clicking “unsubscribe” in any communication you receive from us. for maintaining and improving our site and platform. We may also use your IP addresses to troubleshoot issues, analyse trends, track site/platform navigation, or gather your demographic information to enhance the user experience
Retention of personal information
The duration for which we retain information about you depends on the type of information being retained.
We keep your personal data if we have an ongoing legitimate contractual or business need to process your personal information. For example, we may store your name, phone number, and email address to contact you about renewing or purchasing a subscription to our platform. We then either delete or anonymise your personal data.
If you have elected to receive marketing communications from us, we retain information about your marketing preferences for a reasonable period of time.
We retain information derived from cookies and other tracking technologies for a reasonable period of time from the date such information was created.
How do we share the information we collect?
We hire other third-party companies to perform a wide variety of services on our behalf. We may need to share your personal data with them to provide information, products, and services to you. This includes assisting us with marketing, communication, advertising, providing support, and working on the creation and improvement of the functionality and features of our site.
These third parties are authorised to use your personal data only to provide services to us or as required by law.
We may be required by law to disclose your information, and we will try to take steps to limit such disclosure.
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where your data is sent
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service
Transfer of information internationally.
In order to perform our services, we may transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
Many of our external third parties are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA), so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we seek to ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- We will only transfer your personal data to third parties that have signed our own Data Processing Agreement to safeguard and secure your personal data or that are located in countries deemed to provide an adequate level of protection by the European Commission. For further details, see European Commission: Adequacy of the protection of personal data in non-EU countries.
- Where we use international service providers, we are invariably bound by their own Data Processing Agreements, usually in a form approved by the European Commission, which gives personal data the same protection it has in Europe. For further details, see European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries.
- Where we use service providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US. For further details, see European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield.6.
