Cookies

Our site uses cookies to distinguish you from other visitors to provide you with a better experience and to help us improve our site. By continuing to browse our site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies as stated below. We also use cookies as part of our Subscription Services to the extent reasonably necessary for us to provide the Subscription Services.

A cookie is a small data file placed on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website. A “session cookie” expires when you end your session (i.e. close your browser). A “persistent cookie” stores information on your hard drive so when you end your session and return to the same website at a later date, the cookie information is still available. A “web beacon” is a small string of code that represents a clear graphic image, a redirect URL or JavaScript and is used in conjunction with a cookie.

Cookies used on our site

Our site may use session and persistent cookies. The cookies placed by our servers are readable only by us, and cookies cannot access, read or modify any other data on your computer. We may use web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about your usage of our site and interaction with emails from us. For example, we may place web beacons in marketing emails that notify us when you click on a link in the email that directs you to our site, in order to improve our site and email communications.

Our site and the Subscription Services may contain links to other website including share and/or “like” buttons. These other website and services may set their own cookies on users’ computers, collect data or solicit personal information. You should refer to their cookie and privacy policies to understand how your information may be collected and/or used.

Preference Cookies

We use preference cookies to collect information about your choices and preferences, and to allow us to remember preferred settings and customize our site accordingly.

Analytical Cookies

We also use analytics cookies to collect information about your use of our site, and to enable us to improve the way our site works. For example, analytics cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on our site, help us record any difficulties you have with our site, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on our site, rather than the usage of a single person. We use the information to analyze the site traffic, but we do not use information to identify individuals.

Marketing Cookies

We use Remarketing with Google Analytics to advertise online. Third party vendors, including Google, may show our ads on site across the internet.

We, and third party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on someone’s past visits to our website. Remarketing cookies used by us expire after 30 days. To opt out of Remarketing or to control your ad preferences, please click here.

Controlling Cookies

Most web browsers have a “help” menu where you can review how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have your browser alert you when you receive a new cookie or how to fully disable cookies on your browser. You can learn more about cookies at sites like www.aboutcookies.org. If you use your browser settings to block all cookies, you may not be able to access all or parts of our site.

Below are a list of cookies we use on our site:

How long do we store your data for?

We will keep a copy of your personal data for as long as you remain registered with our site, or, in case of the Subscription Services, for as long as determined by our customer, and thereafter for such period as may be required for our legitimate purposes and in compliance with any legal, audit and compliance requirements, provided that in certain cases as outlined below under “Your rights” we may delete such data on your request, and further provided that in regard to the Subscription Services, our specific Terms of Service with the relevant customer organization may include relevant specific provisions.

Third Parties

We use third-party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage and other technology and services required to operate and maintain our site and the Subscription Services. As part of this, we may be required to transfer (some of) your personal information to these vendors and partners. A full list of the third party vendors used in the Subscription Services can be found at https://breezy.hr/third-party-vendors

Except as described in this policy, we will not share, give, sell, rent or loan any personal information to any third party, unless:

  • It is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Terms of Service of the specific Service, or as otherwise required by law
  • We are required to do so by relevant laws or regulations; and/or
  • We are acquired by, or merged with, another company

Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the website of our group companies, partner networks, clients, and/or affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these website, please note that these website are subject to their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these site and policies. Please check those policies before you submit any personal data to these website.

Online payments and billing

If you make a purchase for the Application, you normally will be required to provide your payment details. These details will be made available in part to both the payment gateway and merchant bank involved. We ourselves will not receive and/or store your credit card details. More details can be found below.

We use Stripe (www.stripe.com) as our payment provider. Stripe’s privacy policy can be found here: https://stripe.com/gb/privacy. Your personal data will only be used by Stripe for the purposes of processing your payment, and will be securely encrypted. Stripe is based in the United States, so your transaction may involve your personal data being transferred outside of the EEA directly to them, if you are based in Europe.

Security Measures

We understand that the security of any data we process as part of you visiting our site and/or the use of our Subscription Services is of great importance to you and our customers. We therefore make sure it is well protected.

Although we (or our respective licensors) own the code, databases and rights in regard to the Subscription Services, you retain all rights to the data you provide to us. We maintain reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect your information from loss, destruction, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure. These measures help ensure that your data is safe, secure, and only available to you and to those you provided authorized access. However, no data transmission over the internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Although we will do our utmost best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the complete security of your data transmitted to our site or otherwise gathered by us; any transmission and supply of personal data to us is therefore at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

Legal basis of our processing of your personal data

We make sure that we only collect and process your data when we have a lawful basis to do so.

Where we operate our site and perform our marketing efforts, we determine and control the way in which we process your personal data.  We in such case normally process your data on the basis of your consent and/or on the basis of our legitimate interests of promoting growing, and developing our business.

In other situations we normally act on behalf of a customer of ours and perform any related data processing on the basis of our legitimate interests of promoting, growing and developing our business and/or in order to perform our obligations under a contract between us and such customer. In such situations, the relevant customer and account owner is the controller of your data and determines its use.

Your rights

We acknowledge and respect your rights as an individual. If you wish to exercise any of your lawful rights or have questions in this regard, please reach out to us via the contact details provided below.

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. You may also choose not to receive publications or certain other communications from us by explicitly indicating so in the appropriate section of the Registration Form or by opting-out by phone, email or via direct marketing emails sent to you.

We will usually inform you if we intend to use your data for marketing purposes or if we intend to, or may disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by (un)checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at the contact details included in this privacy policy, or by unsubscribing per the method outlined in any emails sent or during any phone calls with you.

You may also have the right to ask us to provide you with data held on you, amend any inaccurate personal data held on you, and/or to delete such data. However you should be aware that if you request your details to be deleted, this will mean we will have no record of any opting out that you may have requested and that you therefore may receive unsolicited communications in the future. Where we are processing your information on behalf of our customer, you are generally required to exercise any such rights directly with our customer, being the organization or individual that determines the processing.

California:

Under California Civil Code sections 1798.83 – 1798.84, California residents who have an established business relationship with us are entitled to ask us for a notice describing what categories of personal customer information we share with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes and to opt-out of sharing your personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes.  That notice will identify the categories of information shared and will include a list of the third parties with which it was shared, along with their names and addresses. If you choose to opt-out or would like a copy of this notice, please submit a written request to privacy@ltgplc.com. Please allow 30 business days for a response.
