Information Collection And Use
While using our Service, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your email address, name, other information (“Personal Information”).
Our web servers collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our 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 our Service that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.
In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze this type of information in order to increase our Service’s functionality. These third party service providers have their own privacy policies addressing how they use such information.
Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer’s hard drive.
We use “cookies” to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Service.
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.
These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
We may use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send or by contacting us.
Compliance With Laws
We will disclose your Personal Information where required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement or to protect the security or integrity of our Service.
If Quarter ehf. is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your Personal Information may be transferred.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Your information, including Personal Information, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.
If you choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer the information, including Personal Information, to the EU/EEA and process it there, as well as to 3rd party services inside or outside of the EU/EEA that we may use, so long as they conform to EU privacy regulations.
Links To Other Sites
We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.
Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 13 (“Children”).
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.
Data Protection Statement
Last updated: May 25th, 2018
The Quarter ehf. team takes our users’ trust in us extremely seriously. We know that your data is important to you, therefore we keep it safe and private.
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becomes enforceable on May 25th, 2018, and replaces an older piece of European legislation. We are committed to complying with EU regulations.
Quarter's Roles and Preparedness
Quarter ehf. is a Data Controller in the sense of the GDPR.
As such, we are responsible for handling your personal data correctly and ensuring that it is also handled correctly by any 3rd parties we use.
We have ensured that all 3rd parties we use are compatible with the GDPR and that the necessary Data Processing Addendums (DPAs) are in place. We have also ensured that all opt-ins are clear and explicit so that we have your consent for storing your personal information and emailing you, and we have put in place internal processes for ensuring you can exercise your rights, and ensuring an appropriate level of security for your data.
Exercising Your Rights
As a data subject (i.e., an individual whose personal identifiable data may be being processed), you have several rights under the GDPR, including the right to access your data, the right to be forgotten (erased), the right to make corrections, and more.
To exercise any of these rights, for the time being please email firstname.lastname@example.org and state which right you would like to exercise, and we will respond with a confirmation and with the data being requested (if applicable) within the deadlines stipulated by the GDPR. Over time, we may create automated tools to help you exercise certain rights, such as the right to data portability, but these are not ready at the moment, and are significantly complex to create due to reliance on sub-processors to store some pieces of personal identifiable data.
In reference to your rights that modify or remove personal data, please note that we reserve the right to maintain backups up to a period of 30 days. Therefore, personal data as it existed before correction or removal will remain in the form of backups for up to this duration after your requested changes are made.
