last updated: March 12th, 2019.

introduction

At idazki (“idazki”, “we” or “us”), we are committed to protecting your privacy and keeping your information safe. idazki processes information about you in a few different ways. This privacy policy explains how we collect, use, disclose and keep information that can identify you (“Personal Information”) when you create an idazki account and use idazki.com (the “Site”), to post and view content (the “Services”).

idazki provides its Services to you subject to the terms of service, and the following privacy policy. We may update this privacy policy from time to time. All changes will be posted on our website (the “Site”). You can review the most current version of the privacy policy at any time here idazki.com/about/privacy. Your continued use of the Service or the Site after any such changes have been made constitutes your acceptance of the new privacy policy.

By creating an account with idazki, using the Services, or submitting any Personal Information Information via the Services, you are consenting to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information as described below in this privacy policy. If you do not consent to the use of your Personal Information in these ways, please stop using the Services.

This is important; we hope you will take time to read it carefully.

1. information we collect and receive

When you register for an idazki account, idazki collects personal data that you submit such as your username and email address, as well as any other personal or preference information that you optionally enter into the Service.

idazki also collects and generates a number of other areas of usage information automatically which includes services metadata, log data, device information, IP addresses, third-party data and cookie information.

We also collect, use and share aggregated data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy policy. We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

2. information use

idazki will use your personal data in furtherance of our legitimate interests for the following general purposes:

  • (i) to provide, update, maintain and protect our services, websites, apps and business;
  • (ii) as required by applicable law, legal process or regulation;
  • (iii) to respond to your questions and comments;
  • (iv) to communicate with you via email or within the Services about the Services;
  • (v) statistical purposes;
  • (vi) for billing, account management and other administrative matters;
  • (vii) to investigate and help prevent security issues and abuse;
  • (viii) other purposes as described to you at the point of collection;

We treat the personal information above as private by default, so it won’t be displayed on the Site or revealed to other idazki users (unless you choose to publicly display applicable information via your account settings), or rented or sold to anyone unless the data has been anonymized.

idazki uses such information to customise the marketing and Content you see, fulfil your requests for products and services, improve our Services to you, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymised reporting for internal purposes. If you choose to use our invitation service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend's email address. We will automatically send your friend an email inviting them to visit the site. idazki may attempt to send invitations more than once. idazki stores this information to send such emails, to register a friend connection if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our referral programme. Your friend may unsubscribe from any communication with us within that email or contact us at idazki@idazki.com to request that we remove this information from our database.

Please note that if you enter payment details into the Service when purchasing a Paid Service, idazki itself does not receive or store such payment information, and as such information is received, it is stored and used by our payment service providers for the purpose of completing the purchase.

3. retention

idazki will retain your personal data for as long as we need to in order to fulfil legitimate business interests, conduct audits, comply with (and demonstrate compliance with) legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. You have the right to delete your personal data by sending an email requesting so to idazki@idazki.com. Please note in this case any financial information will be kept in accordance with local laws.

4. cookies

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies or notify you when a cookie is set. If you want to delete any cookies that are already on your computer, please refer to the instructions for your browser to locate the file or directory that stores cookies. If you reject all cookies, you may not be able to use some features of the Service.

You can find out more about how we use cookies on idazki here: idazki.com/about/cookies.

5. disclosure of personal information

idazki does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with third parties except to provide products or services you've requested, when we have your permission, or in the following circumstances:

  • where idazki is responding to a subpoena, court order, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or to defend ourselves against legal claims;
  • where idazki believes it is necessary to share 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 idazki's terms of service, or as otherwise required by law;
  • where idazki transfers information about you if idazki is acquired by or merged with another company. If this happens, idazki will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

6. confidenciality and security

We shall take measures to protect personal data using reasonable and industry standard security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, improper use or modification.

Your personal data is password protected and, other as set out in this privacy policy, can only be seen by you and us. You agree to keep your password(s) confidential and not to disclose them to anyone else, or allow them to be disclosed.

idazki limits access to personal information about you to employees who idazki reasonably believes need to come into contact with that information, to provide products or the Service to you, or in order to do their jobs.

idazki has implemented procedural safeguards that comply with regulations to protect personal information about you. However, data transmissions over the internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, idazki cannot ensure or warrant the security of information you transmit to idazki. In particular, by accessing and using the Service, you do so at your sole risk and you are responsible for restricting access to your computer and ensuring that your computer is free from all types of malicious code, spyware, viruses, Trojans, etc. that may track any data you enter into the Service, including email address and payment related information. We are not responsible for any loss or damage arising from the user’s failure to comply with this paragraph.

However, when you pay for a Paid Service, idazki uses secure payment service providers to make sure that your payments are secure.

7. your legal rights

You have the right to:

-Request access to your personal data. This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

-Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

-Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

-Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms.

-Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data's accuracy; (b) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (c) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

-Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to form a contract with you.

-Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us as detailed below. 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 may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response. We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may 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.
