HOW WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA

The processing of information (your “personal data”), such as the name, e-mail address, postal address information relating to an identified or identifiable person (“data subject”) shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). By means of this data protection declaration, we would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.

The Social Jam complies with its obligations under the GDPR by keeping personal data up to date; by storing and destroying it securely; by not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data; by protecting personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure and by ensuring that appropriate technical measures are in place to protect personal data.

The Social Jam collects the details provided by you when you join The Social Jam mailing list. We may collect additional personally identifiable information through your participation in any promotions and competitions offered by us.

REASONS/PURPOSES FOR PROCESSING INFORMATION

We use the personal information we collect to enable us to:

  • Promote and provide our Services
  • Resolve problems and troubleshoot
  • To maintain our own accounts and records
  • Verify your identity and the information you provide
  • Improve our Services and customer experience and inform you about our Services and updates
  • Provide you with information that may affect your use of our Services
  • Communicate marketing and promotional offers to you

We may also use your personal data to communicate with you in the event of a change in our business practices, or our Terms of Service or Privacy Policy. We may also use your personal data to send you information, special offers and promotions.

Whenever you use a website or other internet service, a series of general data and information gets created and logged automatically. The same is true when you use The Social Jam site. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Some of the types of information we may collect are:

  • the browser types and versions used
  • the operating system used by the accessing system
  • the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers)
  • the date and time of access to the Internet site
  • an Internet protocol address (IP address)
  • the Internet service provider of the accessing system
  • any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems

When collecting this general data and information, The Social Jam Site does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to:

  • deliver the content of our website correctly
  • optimise the content of our website as well as its advertisement
  • ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology
  • provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack.

Therefore, The Social Jam Site analyses anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of The Social Jam Site, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you’re using a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or Android phone.

We sometimes need to share the personal information we process with other organisations. This is always done in compliance with all aspects of the GDPR. Therefore, we may share, and you hereby consent to our sharing of, personal information with service providers who assist in the delivery of our Services we provide to you, the enforcement of our terms and conditions, and the promotion of trust and safety.

We will never sell or rent your personal information to a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body (“third party”).
