Personal data, or personal information as it is sometimes called, is data that relates to or is capable of identifying a living person. Account Holder privacy is very important to us and we do all we can to protect it.
Personal data: When you first sign-up for the CheckoutSmart Service, we ask for your email address and other personal information including details of your choice of Payment Method, whether PayPal, or bank account. Other personal information about you is optional to provide, for example any demographic data (age; occupation; interests etc) which you may choose to provide in connection with another CheckoutSmart offering.
We will retain your personal data for as long as is permitted for legal, regulatory, taxation and fraud prevention purposes.
We like to understand our Account Holders interests as well as we can, in order to personalise the offers we make to them through the CheckoutSmart Service as much as possible. Therefore, we may provide personal data we hold about you as an Account Holder (such as your email address) to one or more third party bureaux which will match that data against other information they hold about you - such as age, gender, demographic information, and known interests - and provide that information to us. We always request these third party bureaux to delete your personal data from their systems as soon as possible, and to keep data relating to you confidential.
We will use the information they provide to us to target more accurately the offers that are made to you through the CheckoutSmart Service.
We also put the information we gather about Account Holders together in an aggregated and anonymous manner (so that your identity and personal data are not accessible) and (a) use it for internal management purposes, (b) share it with current or prospective commercial partners and (c) use it to target offers that are made to Account Holders through the CheckoutSmart Service. This type of information includes, for example, usage of an Account Holder's Payment Method, such as the types of product that the individual Account Holder purchases and the value of those purchases.
Your personal data may be disclosed if we, or an entity processing your data on our behalf, are compelled to do so by law, or receive a valid, legally-compliant request for its disclosure.
We're committed to protecting your personal information. All information that you provide to us is stored on secure servers and access to this database is restricted internally. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures we use reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved.
Access to your Account is password-protected for your privacy and security. While we do our best to protect your personal information you also must protect yourself.
What does this mean?
Keep your password or other access information secret.
Ensure no-one else uses CheckoutSmart while you are "signed in" to the CheckoutSmart Service.
Make sure you sign out from your Account when not using it.
Ensure that only you have access to the details of your Payment Method, such as PayPal or your bank account, which are intended to be kept secret.
We like to keep in touch with our Account Holders so after you have signed up to CheckoutSmart we'll send you information about products or services provided by us or our partners that we think will be of interest to you.
Of course we know lots of emails can be annoying so we try to keep ours to a minimum. We have a one click unsubscribe policy, and each communication gives you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving similar future communications using a link at the bottom of the email. You can also review, change or correct your identity and email address information by signing into your Account and going to the settings tab.
The Data Protection Act 1998 gives you the right to access the personal data we hold about you.
In accordance with that Act, we reserve the right to charge a small fee if you ask us to provide you with this information. If you have questions about the handling or protection of your personal data, a written enquiry should be sent to us using our contact form.
