3. What personal data we collect and why

When Users or Visitors use the Service, they may provide, and we may collect Personal Data. Personal data is any information which identifies a person, whether directly (for example name and surname) or indirectly (for example, information about the use of our Services). Visitors and Users may provide us with Personal Data in various ways on the Service. For example, when they register for an Account, use the Service, request that we publish their business listing or send us customer service requests.

We collect the following Personal Data:

3.1 Information provided by Users and Visitors

 

3.2 “Automatically Collected" Information

We track the use of the Site through cookies and other similar technologies so that we can provide important features and functionality of the Service, monitor the use of the Site and provide a more personalized experience.

This “automatically collected" information may include IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites visited just before or just after using the Service, the pages or other content the Visitor or User views or interacts with on the Service, and the dates and times of the visit, access, or use of the Service. Please refer to our Cookie Policy  for more information.

We also may use these technologies to collect information regarding a Visitor or User’s interaction with email messages, such as whether the Visitor or User opens, clicks on, or forwards a message. This information is collected on an aggregate level from all Users and Visitors.

3.3 Information provided by Integrated Services

Visitors and Users may be given the option to access or register for the Service through the use of their username and passwords for certain services provided by third parties (each, an “Integrated Service”), such as through the use of their Google account, or otherwise have the option to authorize an Integrated Service to provide Personal Data or other information to us. By authorizing us to connect with an Integrated Service, Visitors and Users authorize us to access and store their name, email address, age range, gender, country, profile picture URL, and other information that the Integrated Service makes available to us, and to use and disclose it in accordance with this Policy. Visitors and Users should check their privacy settings on each Integrated Service to understand what information that Integrated Service makes available to us, and make changes as appropriate. Visitors and Users should review each Integrated Service’s terms of use and privacy policies carefully before using their services and connecting to our Service.

3.4 Information from Other Sources  

We may obtain information, including Personal Data, from third parties and sources other than the Service, such as our partners, advertisers, and Integrated Services. If we combine or associate information from other sources with Personal Data that we collect through the Service, we will treat the combined information as Personal Data in accordance with this Policy.

Information about companies, professionals, associations, when not provided directly by the company and/or professional, is gathered from various public sources, including company websites, professional registers, leaflets, etc. This information is processed for the purposes of publishing the company listings in our directory and providing the best possible service to Users and Visitors.

Should this purpose require Website  to process Personal Data, then the data will only be used in anonymized or aggregated form.

4.3 Cookies and tracking technologies

Please read our Cookie Policy  for more information.

We also may use tracking technologies to collect information regarding how Visitors or Users interact with the email messages we send, to get information like the time and day they opened our emails and the type of device they used to open them. We use this information to analyze the effectiveness of our email communication in order to improve it and to provide a better and more personalized service.

4.4 Analytics

We use Google Analytics to measure and evaluate access to and traffic on the Public Area of the Site, and create navigation reports for our Site administrators. Google operates independently from us and has its own privacy policy, which we strongly suggest Visitors and Users to review. Google may use the information collected through Google Analytics to evaluate Users' and Visitors’ activity on our Site. For more information, see Google Analytics Privacy and Data Sharing.

We take measures to protect the technical information collected by our use of Google Analytics. The data collected will only be used on a need to know basis to resolve technical issues, administer the Site and identify visitor preferences; but in this case, the data will be in non-identifiable form. We do not use any of this information to identify Visitors or Users.

4.5 Communications

We use Personal Data to:

4.6 Enquiries, complaints and disputes

We use Personal Information to help us respond to any enquiries or complaints, or deal with any disputes which may arise while we provide our products and services, in the most effective way.

4.7 Fraud prevention and compliance with legal obligations

Under certain circumstances, we use Personal Data to the extent required in order to enable us to comply with our legal obligations, for example to investigate, detect and prevent fraud. This may require us to provide Personal Data to law enforcement agencies or officials, if they request it.

4.8 Internal training  

We may use Personal Data for internal training purposes, so that our staff has the skills needed to provide our Visitors and Users with the best possible experience. For example, if a User or Visitor contacts us by email, we may use their email for training purposes to improve our customer support.

 

4.9 Market research and analysis

We may use Personal Data to better understand the needs of our Users. We may also invite some Users to take part in surveys or market research. If a User accepts our invitation, we will use the feedback to improve our products and services.

 

4.10 Internal records and accuracy

Like any company, we process Personal Data to administer and maintain our internal records. For example, we process Personal Data to verify that the information we have about a User is accurate.

5. Legal grounds for processing Personal Data

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) lists several legal grounds for the lawful processing of Personal Data, and requires us to only process Personal Data if we satisfy one or more legal grounds.

We rely on a number of different legal grounds for the processing of Personal Data:

 

The data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes

In some cases we process Personal Data after obtaining a User’s or Visitor’s consent to do so for the purposes of:

Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party

It is necessary for us to process Personal Data, and information about the business that a User represents, for the performance of the contract between us and Visitor/User, and to provide the Service.

Data processing is necessary to:

 

If a Visitor or User chooses not to give some or all the aforementioned information, this may affect our ability to provide our products and services to them.

Processing is necessary for compliance with our legal obligations

Under certain circumstances, we may process Personal Data to comply with our legal obligations, for example to investigate, detect and prevent fraud.

Processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests

To consider this as lawful basis for processing, a business must have legitimate interests which are not overridden by individuals' interests, rights or freedoms.

Collecting and processing Personal Data is necessary for our legitimate business interests, which are:

 

We may process Personal Data based on our legitimate interests except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject.

 

We have assessed these aspects carefully and, on balance, we believe that our interests described above are balanced with the fundamental interests, rights or freedoms of the data subjects.

Where we think there is a risk that one of the fundamental interests or freedoms of a Visitor or User may be compromised, we will not process their data unless there is another lawful legal basis for doing so (if we have obtained their consent to the processing or to comply with our legal obligations or if processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with them).

 

6. Who we share Personal Data with

Except as described in this Policy, we will not intentionally disclose the Personal Data that we collect or store on the Service to third parties without the consent of the applicable Visitor or User. We may disclose information to third parties if a Visitor or User consent to us doing so, as well as in the following circumstances:

6.1 Unrestricted Information

Any information that a User voluntarily chooses to include in a Public Area of the Service, such as a public profile page or business listing, will be available to any Visitor or User who has access to that content.

6.2 Service Providers

We may provide Personal Data to our service providers, who provide us with certain services and act as "processors" of Personal Data on our behalf. These third parties may have access to, or process Personal Data as part of providing those services for us. We limit the information provided to these service providers to that which is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions.

6.3 Law Enforcement

We may disclose Personal Data:

6.4 Change of Ownership

Information about Users and Visitors, including Personal Data, may be disclosed and otherwise transferred to an acquirer, successor or assignee as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of assets, or similar transaction, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of our business assets and only if the recipient of the Personal Data commits to a Privacy Policy that has terms substantially consistent with this Privacy Policy.

In some cases, the Personal Data we collect for the above purposes may be transferred outside the European Economic Area (EEA), and such destinations may not have laws protecting Personal Data to the same extent as in the European Economic Area. Data protection law requires us to ensure that where we or our "processors" transfer Personal Data outside the European Economic Area, it is processed securely and protected from unauthorized access, loss, destruction, unlawful processing, and any type of processing that is not consistent with the purposes outlined in this Policy.

We will comply with GDPR requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of personal information outside of the European Economic Area (EEA).

The table below lists the third parties to whom we currently disclose Personal Data. The table also explains how these organizations use Personal Data, if they are our "processors" (they process the data on our behalf, and only in line with our instructions), or if they are "controllers" (they use Personal Data for their own purposes, after receiving them). The table indicates if the treatment is performed outside the EEA, and the safeguards that are used to protect Personal Data if this is the case.

This information may be updated periodically.
