Privacy

ElectronicAnarchy.com values your privacy and cares about how your personal information is used and shared. This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, use and share your personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") through our website ("electronicanarchy.com" or "EA") and our services.

Remember that your use of the EA is always subject to the Terms of Use, which incorporate this Privacy Policy. Any terms that we use in this Privacy Policy without defining them have the definitions given to them in the Terms of Use.

  

What does this Privacy Policy cover?

This Privacy Policy details how we collect, receive, use, store, share, transfer and process your Personal Information. It also describes the choices you have regarding the use of your Personal Information, as well as your rights and how you enforce those rights.

This Privacy Policy only applies to the processing of your Personal Information by EA as a data controller, i.e. where we process your Personal Information for our purposes. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any processing of your Personal Information by EA as a data processor on behalf of a Publisher. Publishers will have their own privacy practices governing their use of Personal Information, as described in their own terms of use and/or privacy policies.

   

Can the EA change this Privacy Policy?

We are constantly trying to improve our services, so we may need to change this Privacy Policy from time to time as well, but we will alert you to changes by posting a notice on our website, sending you an email, and/or or by any other means.

Please note that if you have opted out of receiving legal notice emails from us (or have not provided us with your email address), those legal notices will continue to govern your use of the EA, and it remains your responsibility to read and understand them.

   

What information does the EA collect?

We collect and process personal information about you when you interact with us and our services, which may include:

  • your name;
  • your e-mail address;
  • your photograph;
  • any information provided online by you and associated with your account (eg username and password);
  • any other information you provide to us when communicating with us.

   

How does the EA use my personal information?

We process this personal information to:

  • provide services you have requested, and respond to any communications, comments or complaints you send to us;
  • monitor the use of our services and help us to improve and protect our services, content and website;
  • enable you to create, maintain, personalize and secure your account with us;
  • customize our services for you;
  • control any user account to prevent, investigate and/or report fraud, misrepresentation, terrorism, security incidents or crime, in accordance with applicable law;

Your Personal Information may also be used in compliance with applicable laws, taking into account the protection of the EA's legitimate interests and legal rights, including but not limited to use in connection with legal actions, compliance, regulatory purposes, investigation (including disclosure of such information in connection with legal proceedings or litigation).

  

Does the EA share the personal Information it receives?

As a matter of principle, EA never shares the personal information of its Users.

If required by law or if required for the legal protection of our legitimate interests in compliance with applicable laws, we may share strictly necessary personal information with competent regulatory, judicial, tax or governmental authorities, courts or other courts in any jurisdiction or markets, national or foreign.

In certain cases, we may anonymize your personal information in such a way that you can no longer be identified as an individual, and we reserve the right to use and share that anonymous information with trusted partners for statistical or research purposes. However, we never disclose aggregated or de-identified information in a form that could identify you as an individual.

   

Is personal information protected?

Your account is password protected for your privacy and security. You must prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by properly selecting and protecting your password and limiting access to your computer or device.

Your account is password protected for your privacy and security. You must prevent unauthorized access to your account and your Personal Information by properly selecting and protecting your password and limiting access to your computer or device and your browser when terminating access to your account.

We strive to protect the privacy of your account and other personal information that we keep in our records, but unfortunately there's no way that we can guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, service failure, or other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time, on this as on any other online platform.

   

What are my rights?

You have the right to access your personal information, to correct, erase or restrict its processing, or to ask us to transfer some of this information to other organisations. Where we have asked for your consent to process your Personal Information, you have the right to withdraw that consent.

These rights may be limited in some situations or in accordance with applicable law - for example, we cannot delete your personal information where we can demonstrate that we have a legal obligation to retain it. In some cases, this may mean that we may retain data even if you withdraw your consent or delete your account.

When we request personal information to fulfill legal or contractual obligations, then the provision of such information is mandatory: if such information is not provided, then we will not be able to manage our contractual relationship, or to fulfill the obligations imposed on us. In all other cases, providing the requested personal data is optional. Note that we will always inform you when the provision of your personal information is mandatory or optional.

The information you can view, update and delete may change as services change. If you wish to delete your account, you can do so from your account page. If you have any questions about viewing or updating information we have on file about you, please contact us through the means available on the website.

You can unsubscribe from our marketing communications by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link located at the bottom of our email messages.

  

How long will the EA retain my data?

We retain information about you only for as long as is reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. We may retain your personal information for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe that there is a prospect of litigation in relation to our relationship with you.
