Types of information we hold
We collect personal information about our customers to provide our services and customer support. Our services and customer support are provided through many platforms including but not limited to websites and applications. The specific platform and product, service, or support you interact with may affect the personal data we collect.
“Personal Information” is an information that specifically points to your identity or details unique to you. Things like personal contact information and purchase history info would fit under this umbrella of information. Unfortunately, as in most cases, if a piece of information is personable it then becomes everything associated with it, from location data and spending habits.
By keeping some of your information private, rather than trying everything together via means such as “logging into an account by publicly posting something,” the quality of the content provided will grow substantially! We encourage you to stay tuned for our next release which will cater to this specific need in the industry.
When users provide us with personal information in some situations, they’ll offer it on their own and not as part of filling out a form we’ve made available to them or by other means intended for the collection of certain types of details. Even though there may be steps that we take to safeguard this info from misuse, if users take matters into their own hands without our involvement to collect sensitive information of their own accord, the data provided will go beyond our control.
There are certain instances where your users could provide you with their private info on social media or within forums. For example: if you need to get in touch with a long-term user about something, you can do so easily via personal messaging on Facebook.
Note:If you’re not happy with the way we’ve handled your personal data, under certain circumstances you’re entitled to object to that processing. In some cases, we may be required to cease processing your personal data entirely and in others, you can have it processed exclusively for direct marketing purposes. You have the right to object at any time should you wish us not to handle your personal data in this manner.
For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Rights of EEA, EU, and users from the UK
You have the following rights in regard to your personal information under applicable EU regulations:
- You have the right to know how your personal information is processed and where it might be shared; you also have the right to obtain a copy of that information and correct any inaccuracies.
- To erase any personal information about yourself that you don’t want us to keep around anymore for whichever reason, the first criterion we must consider is if: (a) it’s necessary for us to continue keeping your info anymore; (b) you object to us keeping this info and we cannot demonstrate any other overriding grounds for processing these data (what might count as an over-riding ground?), or if (c) you have given your consent in the past and now wish to withdraw this consent so, therefore, refuse to allow us to use your info anymore. The last possibility is when (d) you find out that we are handling your information unlawfully; then what happens would be completely dependent on the circumstances. Nevertheless, if even one of those four conditions applies, you have a right for us to deliver erasure of your personal data.
- If you want to object to our handling of your personal information and we are considering your objection, you may be asked: (a) to verify the accuracy of that personal information; (b) to state why you are relying on those grounds for your complaint, or (c) provide any additional information that supports the accuracy of the personal data and a compelling reason as to why it should not be removed from our database.
- If you have any objections to decisions that we have made based solely on automated processing or profiling, you will have the opportunity to raise your concerns with Battlelab. If you have provided your personal data directly to us because you consented to do so, then we will provide this information back to you in a structured format that can be easily read by machines and transferred over to another controller of data.
If you have any reservations regarding the treatment of your data, when our company processes it, then we will review your concerns and consider them truthfully. If you feel we are not treating your data in accordance with the laws that govern its use because of what’s required by you personally, because it relates to marketing purposes that directly involve you, or if it is an aspect of direct marketing that has been processed for you – then please contact us before we proceed to process it any further.
In addition to the previously listed rights, you also have the right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority in your area. Please note that while you may request access to and/or deletion of data relating to you, there are some instances when these requests may be denied in accordance with local laws.
Because we’re so concerned with security (among other things), anyone can confirm his or her identity by giving us another form of identification and address in addition to the information he or she types into the form. We don’t charge for that, but it just takes a sec (and two pieces of information).
Some of our external third parties are based outside Hong Kong so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the US.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the US, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data; or
- Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved for use in Hong Kong which give personal data the same protection it has in Hong Kong.
