Data Retention

Your Personal Data is retained for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes of the Service. Any Personal Data submitted through this Service, is stored by the Service host’s secure UK based data centre. The Service is also protected by multiple Anti-Malware Firewalls and encrypted by 2048 bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificate. For information on Third party data retention, please browse down to Service Provider information. Data is backed-up daily by the Service host and retained for one month before deletion.

The only exceptions to the periods mentioned above are where:

  • The governing law requires us to hold your Personal Data for a longer period, or delete it sooner.
  • You exercise your right to have the Personal Data erased (where it applies) and we do not need to hold it in connection with any of the reasons permitted or required under governing law.
Data Termination

You have the ‘right to be forgotten’. If you would like us at anytime to delete your Personal Data we will gladly do so, simply email us at info@align.je. We will delete all the Personal Data we hold about you and anything else that is associated with you. However, please note that if you use any of our services which require you to provide Personal Data, deleting our records may mean that you will need to resubmit it to continue using such services.

Please keep in mind that some information may remain in our records after deletion. We may use any aggregated/encrypted data derived from or incorporating your Personal Data after you update or delete it, but not in a manner that would identify you personally.

Cookies

Cookies are files with a small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your computer’s hard drive.

The Service uses Cookies for:

  • Statistical analysis
  • To understand user behaviour
  • To administer the Service
  • To tailor the information presented to a user based on their preferences, and to improve user experience.

Any information gathered by our use of Cookies is compiled on an aggregated/encrypted, anonymous basis.

By default, the majority of popular web browsers automatically permit websites to deploy Cookies onto your device. To delete or disable Cookies on your preferred browser, we recommend reading this advice posted by Google https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/61416?hl=en. Please note, disabling Cookies may impair your experience of the Service.

For more information on the Cookie Law in the UK, we recommend visiting the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) website: https://www.cookielaw.org/ where you can find the latest information, guidelines and advice on the Cookie Law.

If you share our content through social media, for example by liking us on Facebook, following or tweeting about us on Twitter, or giving us a ‘+1’ via Google Plus, those social networks will record that you have done so and may set a Cookie for this purpose.

In some cases, where a page includes content from a social network, such as a Twitter feed, or Facebook comments box, those services may set a Cookie even where you do not click a button. As is the case for all Cookies, we cannot access those set by social networks, just as those social networks cannot access Cookies we set ourselves.

Log Data

We collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit the Service (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of the Service that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics. The data collected does not include personally identifiable information and is used, as described above, for statistical analysis, to understand user behaviour, and to administer the site.

The Service uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). The information generated by the Cookie about your use of the Service (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Service, compiling reports on activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

Further information about Google’s privacy policy may be obtained from https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB&gl=uk.

Service Providers

We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate the Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analysing how the Service is used.

These third parties have access to your Personal Data only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

The Service is not intended for audiences under 16 years of age. It is the sole responsibility of parents and guardians to monitor their children’s use of the Service.

Security

The security of your Personal Data is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.

We have put in place various security procedures as set out in this policy. For example, our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorised personnel have access to user information. We use SSL to encrypt data input before it is submitted, and our database is hosted in a secure data centre.

While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If the Service is breached, we will notify all affected users within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach, where feasible. A breach means a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, Personal Data. A breach can include:

  • Access by an unauthorised third party
  • Deliberate or accidental action (or inaction) by a controller or processor
  • Sending Personal Data to an incorrect recipient
  • Computing devices containing personal data being lost or stolen
  • Alteration of Personal Data without permission
  • Loss of availability of Personal Data.
External Links

The Service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.

We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. You are advised to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page. Continued use of the Service will signify that you agree to any such changes.
