DATA CONTROLLER OR PROCESSOR?
Certain Data Protection Laws and regulations, such as the GDPR, typically distinguish between two main roles for parties processing Personal Data: the “Data Controller”, who determines the purposes and means of processing; and the “Data Processor”, who processes the data on behalf of the Data Controller. Below we explain how these roles apply to our Services, to the extent that such laws and regulations apply.
We are the “Data Controller” of website visitors, customers and prospective customers’ personal data. Additionally, we are the Data Controller for any Influencer personal data contained in our Databases.
Any private data or content uploaded by our Customers shall be processed by us on behalf of the Customer, subject to our commercial agreements. Such Customer shall be deemed the “Data Controller” with respect to this content and Vuelio/ResponseSource will process such data on this Customer’s behalf, as its “Data Processor”. The Customer will be responsible for meeting any legal requirements applicable to Data Controllers (such as establishing a legal basis for processing and responding to Data Subject Rights requests concerning the data they control).
Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.
However, we will normally collect personal information from you only: (i) where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights; or (ii) where we have your consent to do so.
We collect and use your personal information on the basis of our legitimate interests (or those of any third party) in connection with:
- our operation of our Websites (for example we collect information about usage and engagement with our Website to improve its functionality, personalisation and security);
- our provision of Services and communicating with you or our customers as necessary to provide our Services;
- responding to any queries that you submit to us;
- undertaking marketing of our Databases and/or other services to relevant decision-makers through targeted campaigns;
- detecting or preventing illegal activities; and
- (if you are an Influencer) our using your information for the purposes of:
- (i) compiling and maintaining our Databases, to ensure our customers have access to the most comprehensive and up-to-date information and thereby ensure they engage with Influencers in ways that are relevant, timely and targeted;
- (ii) providing you with marketing information, regular news bulletins and other information which we consider you find useful, interesting and/or of relevance to your role as an Influencer;
- (iii) referring your personal information to customers of our Databases, public relations and marketing professionals, public relations agencies and corporate press offices and other users of our services when you make an enquiry through our enquiry service; and
- (iv) providing you with newsletters containing regular news bulletins, details regarding our products and services, latest blog content, industry news and any other information related to or otherwise connected with the above.
We may have other legitimate interests and if appropriate we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are. Where we do process your information on the basis of our legitimate interests, we will consider any consequences or impact it may have on you and will not rely on legitimate interests grounds if we think that our interests are outweighed by any negative impact the activities may have on you.
Depending on the law that applies, you may have a right to access and rectify or erase your personal data or receive a copy of your personal data, restrict or object to the active processing of your data, ask us to share (port) your personal information to another entity, withdraw any consent you provided to us to process your data, a right to lodge a complaint with a statutory authority and such other rights as may be relevant under applicable laws. To exercise these rights, you can write to us at [email protected]. We will respond to your request in accordance with applicable law.
You may opt-out of direct marketing communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the marketing email that we sent you or by writing to us at [email protected].
Do note that if you do not allow us to collect or process the required personal information or withdraw the consent to process the same for the required purposes, you may not be able to access or use the Services for which your information was sought.
