The table above sets out how we use your data and our lawful basis for doing so. We may process your data for more than one lawful basis depending on the specific purpose for which we are using it. Importantly, we will only use your data when the law allows us to.
We will only use your data for the purposes for which we collected it unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
In addition to the above, we may also anonymous and aggregate your data in a way that means you cannot be identified. This may be helpful to us for testing our internal systems, carrying out research, and general customer data analysis. Because this is not personally identifiable, we can use this for any purpose.
WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR DATA WITH?
Importantly, we do not pass your data onto any third parties for them to market their products/services to you. If in the future we decide that we want to, we will only do so if we have your consent. However, share your data with third parties to help us deliver our products and services to you in the most effective way possible. These include third parties who assist us with:
- Delivering relevant Ecomaniac email and text marketing (to the extent you have not unsubscribed)
- Our customer reviews and surveys
- Personalizing the content on our website to ensure a tailored user experience
- Delivering relevant targeted and re-targeted advertising to keep you up to date with our services
- Detecting fraud or criminal activity
- Creating your Ecomaniac account (being your social media companies who you have used to provide log-in information as part of the sign-up process)
- Running our competitions, such as our auditors, judges, professional advisors
- Other aspects of our service delivery, such as hosting our website and processing customer payments.
In addition to the above, we may also be required to share your data with third parties if required by law or regulation. In such circumstances, we will make sure that the disclosure is only to the extent required by law or regulation.
HOW WE KEEP YOUR DATA SECURE?
We adopt industry-standard security processes to ensure your data is kept safe and secure and to prevent unauthorized access or use or loss of your data. By way of example, we use secure server software (EV SSL), which encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. We also make sure that third parties who need to handle your data when helping us to deliver our services are subject to suitable confidentiality and security standards. Despite the security measures we implement, please be aware that the transmission of data via the Internet is not completely secure. As such, we cannot guarantee that information transmitted to us via the Internet will be completely secure and any transmission is at your own risk.
HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR DATA FOR?
We will keep your data for as long as you hold an Ecomaniac account and/or where you are still happy to hear from us about our latest news, products, and services. Once you no longer wish to be engaged with Ecomaniac we may still need to keep hold of your data if there is a legal reason for doing so (such as for tax purposes where you have made purchases to play in our competitions or where we need to resolve any disputes with you).
CHANGES TO OUR DATA PROTECTION.
If we amend our Data Protection, or we make any substantial changes, we will email you if it is appropriate.
In certain situations, you are entitled to:
- access a copy of your data;
- correct or update your data, which you can do yourself by logging into your account or if you would prefer, please contact us and we can help you out;
- erase your data;
- Object to the processing of your data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (as set out in the above table);
- Restrict the processing of your data;
- Request the transfer of your data to a third party; or
If you want to exercise any of these rights, please contact us. You do not have to pay a fee to exercise your rights unless your request is unfounded, repetitive, or excessive (in which case we can charge a reasonable fee). Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. Where your request is legitimate, we will always respond within one month (unless there is a legal reason to take longer, such as where your request is particularly complex). We may also need you to confirm your identity before we proceed with your request if it is not clear to us who is making the request. In addition to the above, you may get in touch with the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) if you are concerned about how we are handling your data. However, where possible, we would appreciate you speaking with us first if you have any concerns.
HOW TO OPT-OUT OF ECOMANIAC MARKETING
You can opt-out of any Ecomaniac marketing at any time either by contacting us or by using the opt-out function detailed in the relevant marketing email. Please note that we may still need to send you service notifications by email, such as advising you of updated privacy terms or terms of play.
We do not pass your data onto any third parties for their marketing purposes. However, should there be any need in the future we will always get your consent. You can then opt-out from any third-party marketing at any time following the same process as above.
