Privacy and Terms (EU)
Last Revised: April 16, 2018
Thank you for visiting a website owned by BrandMaker Inc. or one of its affiliated entities (collectively, referred to herein as “BrandMaker”, “we”, and “us”) and for your interest in our products and services. The security of your privacy is a serious matter for us and we would like you to feel comfortable when browsing our web pages. The protection of your privacy when handling your personal data is an important issue for us, which we have also considered in our business processes.
BrandMaker data protection policy
BrandMaker aims to protect all personal and corporate data entered when using the BrandMaker website and any emails, texts or other electronic communications sent through the website. It does not apply to information collected offline, through any other apps, websites (including websites you may access through the BrandMaker website) or by any third party. These other websites, apps or third parties may have their own privacy policies, which we encourage you to read before providing information through them.
In this Data Protection Policy, BrandMaker sets out the ways in which and when anonymized, personal and corporate data is stored and used by BrandMaker. In addition, BrandMaker takes measures to ensure that it complies with the regulations contained in the German Federal Data Protection Act.
Personal and corporate data are details about personal or objective affairs of an identified or identifiable natural and legal person. Personal data includes in particular such details as a person’s name, postal address, email address and telephone number. The term “personal data” does not, however, cover any data which are untrue or inaccurate.
Collection of anonymous and personal data
Personal data, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers etc will only be collected if these have been freely provided by you as part of a registration, a live chat, order, or inquiry procedure.
While we do not collect personal data automatically, we may tie information collected automatically to personal data about you that we collect from other sources or you provide to us.
Use of your information
All information we collect about you or that you provide to us, including personal data which has been collected with the consent of the individuals concerned, will be used exclusively for: (i) the purposes of providing the appropriate products or services of BrandMaker, including suggesting additional documents for your reading based off documents that you access on a BrandMaker website; (ii) giving you notices about your account/subscription (if applicable), including expiration and renewal notices; (iii) carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us, including for billing and collection; (iv) notify you when updates are available, and of changes to any products or services we offer or provide; or (v) for any other purposes for which we have received the express permission of the individual concerned and in so far as this is permitted by relevant legislation.
Distribution of your information
We may disclose aggregated information about our users. We will distribute personal data on to third parties with the prior permission of the person to which the data relates. In addition, we may disclose personal data to (i) our subsidiaries and affiliates; (ii) contractors, service providers and other third parties we use to support our business and who are contractually bound to keep your personal information confidential and only use it for purposes for which we disclose it to them; (iii) to a buyer or other successor to all or substantially all of our assets, or to the assets of any division related hereto, through merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer; (iv) to comply with any court order, law or legal process; (v) to enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us; or (vi) if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect our rights, property, or safety, or those of our customers or others.
Rights to access and correct information
All individuals have the right to access any personal data which is being kept about them and to correct any information kept about them which is inaccurate. Individuals may exercise their rights to access and correct information that is being kept about them by applying to the address shown below, or directly to the data protection registrar at BrandMaker.
The right to store personal data may be revoked at the request of persons who are suitably entitled to make such a request.
If you do not want us to use your email address or other contact information for advertising purposes, you can opt out by contacting us using the contact information provided at the end of this policy.
It is unlawful to distribute the personal data of minors to another party. We shall therefore neither request, store nor distribute such data. The website is not intended for minors, and we do not knowingly collect personal data from minors. If we learn we have collected or received personal data from a minor without verification of parental consent, we will delete such information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child, please contact us using the contact information provided at the end of this policy.
Links and Live Chat
The website may contains links which allow access to an extensive range of information which is contained on other internet sites. In addition, the website may include a live chat option, which allows you to communicate in real time with BrandMaker. The live chat option is provided to BrandMaker by a third party, Zendesk, Inc., which third party, as a condition of authorizing BrandMaker to use its services, requires certain access to your information. You can read about how this third party uses your information collected during live chats online at https://www.zendesk.com/. If you do not wish Zendesk, Inc. to access your information, please do not use the live chat option on our site. BrandMaker accepts no liability for the content of other internet sites or its third party vendors’ (such as the live chat provider) use of your information, and has no control over the content of these sites, these third parties’ use of your information or the degree of their compliance with data protection regulations. We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information for interest-based advertising; however, these third parties may provide you with choices relative to your personal data.
We implement measures designed to protect your personal data from accidental loss or unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, the safety and security of your information also depends on you. We urge you to protect your user information and password and to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the website, which may be viewed by other users.
Unfortunately, transmitting information via the internet and mobile platforms is not completely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of your personal data when transmitted through our website or any services we offer. Any transmission of personal data is at your own risk, and we are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures we provide.
