This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) and any other documents referred to herein, sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us when using our website: 5app.com, will be processed by us when we act as a data controller.

Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it. By using our website or any of the free services on it you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Please note:

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any data you provide to us when we process personal data on your behalf as your data processor i.e. where we process customer data within the cloud service we provide to you, as a BTB service provider.

DATA CONTROLLER

For the purposes of EU and UK data protection laws and any applicable implementing laws, regulations and secondary legislation relating to the processing of personal data (together “Data Protection Law”), the data controller is 5App Limited with its registered offices at 1st Floor, 7-10 Chandos Street, London, W1G 9DQ, England .

LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING

We collect and use the personal data described below in order to provide you with access to the website in a reliable and secure manner. We also collect and use personal data:

To the extent we process your personal data for any other purposes, we ask for your consent in advance or require that our partners obtain such consent.

We do not disclose personal data about identifiable individuals to our advertisers, but we may provide them with Aggregated Data about our users (for example, we may inform them that 250 men aged over 25 have clicked on their advertisement on any given day). We may also use such Aggregated Data to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, women living in London).

      We may share Aggregated Data in the normal course of operating our business; for example, with website users, our customers or publicly to show trends or benchmark the general use of the website.

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS

Our website and services are global and your information (including personal data) may be stored and processed in any country where we have operations or where we engage service providers, and we may transfer your information to countries outside of your country of residence, which may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country of residence.

Processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data to countries outside the European Economic Area (“EEA“), Switzerland or the UK.

We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. In particular, this means that your personal data will only be transferred to a country that provides an adequate level of protection (for example, where the European Commission or the UK Data Commissioner has determined that a country provides an adequate level of protection) or where the recipient is bound by standard contractual clauses according to conditions provided by the European Commission (“Standard Contractual Clauses”).

Our Services are accessible via the internet and may potentially be accessed by anyone around the world. Other users may access the Services from outside the EEA, Switzerland or the UK. This means that where you chose to post your data within the Services, it could be accessed from anywhere around the world and therefore a transfer of your data outside of the EEA, Switzerland or the UK may be deemed to have occurred.

DATA SECURITY

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. For example all information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of the website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share any password with anyone. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will endeavour to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the website. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

Our Services may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

USE OF BLOGS, FORUMS AND CHAT ROOMS

Any information that you post to areas of the website that are viewable by others (for example, to a blog, forum or chat-room) will not be treated as proprietary, private, or confidential. We have no obligation to monitor such posts to the website or to exercise any editorial control over such posts; however, we reserve the right to review such posts and to remove any material that, in our judgment, is not appropriate. Posting, transmitting, promoting, using, distributing or storing content that could subject us to any legal liability, whether in tort or otherwise, or that is in violation of any applicable law or regulation, or otherwise contrary to commonly accepted community standards, is prohibited, including without limitation information and material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret, nondisclosure or confidentiality agreements, or other intellectual property rights.

YOUR RIGHTS

You have the right under Data Protection Law, free of charge, to request:

      Access to your personal data.

      Rectification or deletion of your personal data.

      A restriction on the processing of your personal data.

      Object to the processing of your personal data.

      A transfer of your personal data (data portability) in a structured, machine readable and commonly used format.         

      Withdraw your consent to us processing your personal data, at any time.

You can make a request in relation to any of the above rights by contacting us as set out at the end of this Privacy Policy. We will respond to such queries within 30 days and deal with requests we receive from you, in accordance with the provisions of Data Protection Law. Occasionally it could take us longer, if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

MARKETING

      Marketing: We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).

      Promotional Offers from us: We will send you marketing emails if you “opt in” to receive marketing emails when registering on our website, or if you have enquired about, or purchased any of our goods or services from us and you have not opted out of receiving such marketing.

      Third Party Marketing: We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.

      Opt out: Please note that, if you change your mind about being sent marketing emails you can “opt out” at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any marketing email. Once you “opt out”, you will no longer receive any marketing emails from us. We will continue to communicate with you regarding your service billing and support via email and where we send push notifications from time to time in order to update you about any service updates, events and promotions we may be running. If you no longer wish to receive these communications, please disable these in the settings on your device.

DATA RETENTION

We retain personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was provided or collected, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint, if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you, to comply with law enforcement requests, maintain security, prevent fraud and abuse, resolve disputes, enforce our legal agreements, or fulfil your request to “unsubscribe” from further messages from us.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

The length that we keep personal data depends on the type of information held. We have set out below which types of information we keep and when this will be deleted.

Account information. For as long as your account is active we shall keep your personal data and for a reasonable period thereafter, just in case you decide to re-activate the account. Where we keep information for improvement and development of the website, we de-personalise the information. We only use such de-personalised information to uncover collective insights about the use of the website and never to analyse personal characteristics about you specifically. Where the services are made available to you via an organization (for example: your employer), we shall retain your information as long as required by the administrator of your account.

Shared Information. If your account is deactivated or disabled, any information you have shared with others will remain visible and some information and content you have provided may remain in order to allow team members or other users to make full use of the website.

Marketing and Cookie information. If you have elected to receive marketing emails from us, we shall retain information about your marketing preferences for a reasonable period of time from the date you last expressed interest in our website or services. We retain information derived from cookies and other tracking technologies for a reasonable period of time from the date such information was created.

Anonymised Information. We will retain some anonymised information after your account has been closed and we may use this for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Please note: We do not control data that other users may have copied from the website or services. Your profile may continue to be displayed in the services of others (e.g. search engine results) until they refresh their cache.

COMPLAINTS

Our intention is to meet the highest standards when collecting and using personal data. For this reason, we take complaints we receive very seriously. We encourage users to notify us if they think that our collection or use of personal data is unfair, misleading or inappropriate. If you have any complaints about our use of your personal data please contact us as set out at the end of this Privacy Policy or contact your local data protection supervisory authority:

For UK individuals: The Information Commissioner’s Office at, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF, England.
