Any purchases which You make through a third party in this manner may be subject to further policies and it is Your sole responsibility to ensure Your compliance with those policies.
3. OUR USE OF YOUR INFORMATION

In case Your Account is closed, Your Information saved in Our database will, in accordance with applicable laws, only be deleted at Your express request. Please note that it is not possible to delete Your Information prior to the expiry of the applicable statutory retention periods, as this Information must be available for Your security should it be required for unenforceability, exertion or defence of legal claims by authorities or court of law.
3.2. We may disclose Your Information, and the contents of all Your online communications, if required to do so by law, or if We believe in good faith that such action is necessary to: (i) comply with any applicable laws or regulations or any legal process served on Us, the Services or in circumstances where We are under a substantially similar legal obligation; (ii) protect and defend Our rights or property; (iii) act to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public; or (iv) if, in Our sole determination, You are found to have cheated or attempted to defraud Us or any other user of the Services in any way, or if We suspect You of any fraudulent activity.
3.3. We may further provide Your Information to any third parties and data processors providing services to Us, including but not limited to, payment processing, data analysis, email delivery, hosting services, customer service and to assist Us in our marketing efforts.

By accessing or using the Services You authorise Us to collect certain technical information in order to (i) analyse usage of the Services; (ii) provide a more personalised experience; and (iii) manage advertising.

5. PROTECTION OF MINORS
5.1. The Services are not intended for, or directed at, persons under the age of 18 (or other such minimum legal age in Your jurisdiction). Any person who provides Information to Us through any part of the Services represents to Us that they are 18 years of age (or the lawful age in their respective jurisdiction) or older. It is Our policy to uncover attempts by persons under the age of 18 to access Our Services which may involve Us having to access and verify Your Information. If We become aware that a person under the age of 18 has attempted to, or has submitted Information via the Services, We will not accept this Information and will take steps to remove such Information from Our records.
6. SAFETY MEASURES TO PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
6.1. Data encryption: To protect Your Information during communication with Your web browser, We encrypt transmissions of that Information using secure socket layer technology.
6.2. Further technical security measures: In order to prevent illegal manipulation by third parties and to identify and prevent any form of misuse, We record the IP addresses of all computers used to access the line-up on the Services. In addition, all Your Information are protected from unauthorised access by a so-called firewall (a computer that is fitted with complex security technology specifically designed to shield Our network from the internet). Additionally, We use reliable internal data protection mechanisms combined with a restrictive security system. However, no website or internet transmission is completely secure, and We cannot guarantee that unauthorised access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. We thus urge You to take steps to keep Your Information safe, and to log out of Your Account after use. If Your Account is hacked, this may lead to unauthorised use of the Service, so be careful to keep Your Account information secure.
6.3. Although We strive to protect Your Information, We cannot guarantee the security of Your Information while it is being transmitted to Us; any transmission is at Your own risk. Once We have received Your Information, We have procedures and security features in place to try to prevent unauthorised access.
7.1. You expressly agree that the Services are provided on an “as is” basis without warranties of any kind. We are not responsible for events beyond Our direct control. Because of the complex and constantly changing nature of Our technology and business, We cannot guarantee, nor do We represent, that there will be an error-free performance regarding the privacy of Your Information, and We will not be liable for any indirect, incidental, consequential or punitive damages relating to the use or release of Your Information.
8. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS
8.1. Your Information collected by Us may be stored and processed in any country in which We or Our affiliates, suppliers, ESPs or agents maintain facilities. By using the Service, You expressly consent to any transfer of Information outside of Your country (including to third countries that may not have been assessed as having adequate privacy laws). Nevertheless, We take steps to ensure that Our agents, affiliates and suppliers comply with Our standards of privacy regardless of their location.
9. MERGERS AND OTHER EVENTS REQUIRING TRANSFER
9.1. If We should ever file for bankruptcy, or become insolvent, or be acquired by a third party, merge with a third party, sell all or part of Our assets, or transfer substantially all or part of Our relevant assets to a third party, We are entitled to share Your Information You have provided through the Services to potential and subsequent business and merger partners. By agreeing to the Terms of Service, You hereby give Your consent to such transfer of this Information.
