Information we may collect from you
We may collect and process the following personal information about you:
Information that you provide by filling in forms on our sites. This includes information provided at the time of registering to use our subscription service, when subscribing to our newsletter, uploading material or requesting further services. We may also ask you for information when you report a problem with our sites.
If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
We may also ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them.
Details of transactions you carry out through our sites and of the fulfilment of your orders.
Details of your visits to our sites including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, whether this is required for our own billing purposes or otherwise and the resources that you access.
Where you place an order with us or otherwise purchase our services, confirmation of your payment (but we shall not hold your credit card details as we use a third party payment service provider).
Use of our subscription service and software enables sharing of files which will be stored on the cloud. These files may include personal data of the individuals who contribute to and or appear in them. We do not access or otherwise use this data other than in circumstances described in the “Disclosure of your information” section of this policy.
We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration. This is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
Our cookies are used to remember your search settings and to allow you to add comments to our sites. The only way to stop these cookies being set is to choose to not use our sites.
Cookies for Social Websites
So you can refer or share our content on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, our sites may include sharing buttons. The cookies themselves are set by the separate social network websites.
We may use Google Analytics cookies to compile website statistics on visitors to our website. Such analysis includes information on how visitors access our sites, the amount of time spent on the website, and what pages are visited.
Where we store your personal data
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Where you supply, or have been given, a password which enables you to access certain parts of our sites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we strive to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data uploaded via our sites and any upload is therefore at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. However, as we do not provide a complete back up of all data uploaded using our subscription services, we cannot guarantee that data you upload using our subscription service will remain available. You should therefore maintain backup copies of the material you upload.
How long we will store your personal data
We only store your information for as long as is necessary. This means that we will retain your personal data for as long as you subscribe to our subscription services, so that we can comply with our obligations in respect of the provision of such services to you.
We will also keep a record of your personal data where we have a legal or regulatory requirement to do so. In addition, where you have previously signed up to our subscription services on a trial basis, then we may also store your details for a period of up to 3 years after the end of the trial for the purposes of fraud detection and prevention.
Where you have subscribed to our newsletter or are otherwise on our mailing list, we will retain your personal data for a period of three years. After this period, we will contact you to ask you to confirm whether you would like to remain on our list and if we do not hear from you, or if you ask us to remove you from the list, then we will remove your details from our mailing list. Please note that you may also opt out of our mailing list at any time by contacting us at [email protected].
