This Policy may be updated at any time. Please ensure that you regularly read the latest version of this page.
Collection of personal data
During access to the Blackpoints website, usage preferences and personal data, normally in anonymous form, can be detected. In addition, to safeguard the security of the data, access details can be stored, like for example IP address, date and time of access, web page from which the link came from, etc.
Security of data transfers
Please note that data that is transported over an open network, such as the Internet or e-mail, may be accessible to anybody. Information that is submitted via the internet (such as online forms) as well as content received online might be transmitted via third party networks. Blackpoints cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted via such open or third party networks. When disclosing any personal information via an open or third party network, you should remain mindful of the fact that it is potentially accessible to others, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without your consent. In particular, while individual data packets are often encrypted, the names of the sender and recipient are not. Even if both the sender and recipient are located in the same country data may also be transmitted via such networks to other countries regularly and without controls, including to countries that do not afford the same level of data protection as your country of domicile.
Your data may be lost during transmission or may be accessed by unauthorized parties. We do not accept any liability for direct or indirect losses as regards the security of your data during its transfer via Internet. Please use other means of communication if you think this is necessary or prudent for security reasons.
Protection, Processing and Use of Personal Data
We use your personal information to enhance the quality of the products or services we wish to provide to our customers and to maintain contact details for those with whom we deal. We restrict access to personal information about you to those employees or other parties who need to know that information to provide our products or services. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to guard your personal information. We do not use for purposes other than as set out above, or disclose to any third party any personal information about our customers or former customers, except with such customer’s consent or as otherwise permitted or required by law. In cases where we believe that additional products and services may be of interest to you, we may share your personal information with affiliates of Blackpoints to the extent permitted by applicable law. We may also disclose this information to firms that perform services on our behalf to the extent permitted by applicable law. These service providers are required to treat the information confidentially and use it only for the purpose for which it is provided. Certain jurisdictions may have more stringent privacy requirements that will prevent disclosure of your personal information to any other person or entity, including affiliates.
We will retain your personal information in accordance with applicable data protection laws for so long as it is needed.
