This policy is effective from 01/01/2015.
The Social Pay Me on-line service (the “Service”) is operated by Pixel Persuasion in the United Kingdom. The service allows registered users to market their digital products or content (e.g. music, eBooks, graphic resources and coupons) via either the Facebook or Twitter social network.
Social Pay Me is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this Website then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.
Social Pay Me may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.
Personal data is only collected, processed and used as described below in the course of its use by Social Pay Me.
Information that we collect
In running and maintaining our Website we may collect and process the following data about you:
- Information provided voluntarily by you. For example, when you register we will collect and store your name, email address and your password (in an encrypted form).
- Information about your use of our site including details of your visits such as pages viewed and the resources that you access. Such information includes traffic data, location data and other communication data.
- Information that you provide when you communicate with us by any means.
- During each posting session on supported social networks, Social Pay Me will temporarily collect and store access tokens necessary to post to the selected social network through the Social Pay Me platform.
What we do with the information we gather
We require this information for you to make use of our services.
Upon registering with us your name and email address is automatically added to our email mailing list. Our email mailing list provider is GetResponse Sp. z o.o. (Polish Limited Liability Company), Arkońska 6, A3, 80-387 Gdańsk, Poland (“Get Response”).
Signing up to our email list is a two-step process and after registering with Social Pay Me you will receive an email from Get Response where you will be asked to confirm your subscription. Your name and email address is only added to our email mailing list if the confirmation link contained in this confirmation email is acted upon. Failure to confirm your subscription to our email mailing list does not prohibit the use of our Service and is not a necessary step to signing up. You can opt out of our email list at any time by following the instructions contained in every email we send through the Get Response service.
If you have previously signed up or purchased goods or services from us we may provide to you details of similar goods or services, or other goods and services that you may be interested in. We never give your details to third parties to use your data to enable them to provide you with information regarding unrelated goods or services.
Disclosing personal information
We may disclose your personal information:
- To the extent that we are required to do so by law.
- In connection with any ongoing or prospective legal proceedings.
- In order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.
- To the purchaser (or prospective purchaser) of any business or asset that we are (or are contemplating) selling.
- To any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.
- We do not save the user data of any third party accessing your content through the Social Pay Me service.
Except as provided in this policy, we will not provide your personal information to third parties.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure (password- and firewall-protected) servers.
You acknowledge that the transmission of information over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
You are responsible for keeping the password you use for accessing our Website confidential; we will not ask you for your password (except when you log in to our Website).
Cookies are very small text files which a Website server transmits to a browser which it then stores on your computer’s hard drive or other end device. This is so a Website can remember who you are, among other things. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain from which the cookie originates, the cookie’s expiry date and a value.
Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
Social Pay Me uses both session and persistent cookies.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better Website. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. Please note, however, that you may be unable to use the Social Pay Me Website properly if cookies are switched off and this may prevent you from taking full advantage of the Website.
