Collection and Our Use of Information
We also collect certain non-personal information from Visitors and Users such as your browsing history on the Application, the length of time spent on certain pages, the website Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) from the website you were visiting before coming to this Site, which URL you next visit, device type, what browser you are using, Internet service provider, date/time of visit information, and operating system. We will use the non-personal information we collect to conduct statistical analysis of our Application and other services, to troubleshoot service issues or interruptions, to update and improve the Services, and to understand the demographics of our Users and their browsing habits.
We will store your information until it is no longer needed, after the expiration of statutory preservation duties, either upon you deleting your account or you sending us a request via firstname.lastname@example.org. Should you not access your account for a consecutive period of 3 years, we may delete your details. Should you then want to use your account, you will need to create a brand new account.
We hold data collected regarding complaints about our products or service in our complaints database for a maximum of 6 years.
In some limited circumstances, badges4events™ may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
Who Helps Us Process Your Information?
We use a select number of trusted external service providers for certain technical data analysis and development, processing and/or storage. These providers include (but are not limited to) companies that help us to get your purchases to you, such as payment service providers and delivery companies.
All service providers are carefully selected and meet high data protection and security standards. We only share information with them that is required for the services offered.
Some of your personal data may be stored in countries that are not part of the European Economic Area. We take additional steps to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR.
Should there be a security breach, we follow strict procedures as defined by the Information Commissioner’s Office [ICO]. We regularly check our systems to ensure they are safe and we promise that in the unlikely event of a security breach, we will let you know.
Sharing of Information
The Company may disclose personally identifiable information to third parties when it is required to complete a customer-requested transaction, delivery or to provide service. With your express consent, we do make our mailing list consisting of your name, email address, company name, address, job title, internal badges4events™ identifier number and last order date available to carefully screened companies whose products or services might interest you. If you provide your consent, but later wish to withdraw it, please call us onor send an email to email@example.com.
Statistical vs. Personal Information
Some non-personally identifiable information is collected and stored automatically when you visit the Site. If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the Site, read pages or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. Our system collects data that may include:
- Domain name
- Type of browser
- Operating system
- Pages viewed
- Search requests
If you linked to our Site from another web site, that web site’s address may be logged. We may aggregate this data and use it for statistical purposes. For example, the aggregated data helps us to determine Site users’ interest in areas of our Site. It also helps us understand how we can improve the navigation and content of our Site. We may disclose this information to third parties.
