To provide you with information, products or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you
Your Personal Information may be disclosed as follows:
As a contributor, your public profile and results on public listing pages may be included in search engine indexes, in which case some details from your public profile may be published as search results. We do not control the practices of third-party search engines, and they may use caches containing outdated information, including any information indexed by the search engine or the information on your public profile.

We may also publish, disclose and use Aggregated Information and non-personal information for industry analysis, demographic profiling, marketing and advertising, and other business purposes.

ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold about you. You are also entitled to opt-out of any newsletter or marketing or previously signed up ones.
If you are unclear about the use of these tools or have a data request which cannot be completed online using our website, please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
In general, the third-party providers used by us, if any, will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located. Some 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 ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
Where we use 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.
In the unlikely event of a data security incident, we’ll notify all affected customers promptly and without delay. In most cases, this notification will be sent via email. Where required to do so, we’ll also notify the Information Commissioner (ICO).
Our reporting of a data incident does not constitute acknowledgement of any fault or liability on our part. Where possible, we will notify customers of steps we are taking to mitigate the effects of an incident, and the steps we are taking to prevent future incidents of a similar nature.
If you would like to: access, correct, amend or delete any personal information we have about you, register a complaint, or simply want more information, then please contact us at email@example.com
