- This is a notice to inform you of our policy about all information that we record about you. It
sets out the conditions under which we may process any information that we collect from you, or
that you provide to us. It covers information that could identify you (“personal

- We regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only
recourse is to leave our website immediately.
- We take seriously the protection of your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all

information provided at www.knowyourprivacyrights.org
- Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any information
collected through our website.
The bases on which we process information about you
- The law requires us to determine under which of six defined bases we process different
categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for each category.
If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we shall
immediately stop processing your data.
If the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis
under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.
Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you
When you create an account on our website, buy a product or service from us, or otherwise agree to
our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us.
In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give
us. Some of this information may be personal information.
We may use it in order to:
- verify your identity for security purposes
- sell products to you
- provide you with our services
- provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and how to obtain the most from
using our website
We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested
we use the information before we enter into a legal contract.
Additionally, we may aggregate this information in a general way and use it to provide class
information, for example to monitor our performance with respect to a particular service we provide.
If we use it for this purpose, you as an individual will not be personally identifiable.
We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by
either party under the terms of the contract.
Information we process with your consent
Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as
when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about our business, including
our products and services, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be
Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this information, for example,
Sometimes you might give your consent implicitly, such as when you send us a message by e-mail to
which you would reasonably expect us to reply.
Except where you have consented to our use of your information for a specific purpose, we do not use
your information in any way that would identify you personally. We may aggregate it in a general way
and use it to provide class information, for example to monitor the performance of a particular page
on our website.
If you have given us explicit permission to do so, we may from time to time pass your name and
contact information to selected associates whom we consider may provide services or products you
would find useful.
We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be
reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing us at email@example.com. However, if you do so,
you may not be able to use our website or our services further.
Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests
We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of
Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given careful consideration to:
- whether the same objective could be achieved through other means
- whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm
- whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would, in the round,
consider it reasonable to do so
For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:
- record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our Birdhouse Buzz.
- responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a
- protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party
- insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage Birdhouse Buzz
- protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so
Information we process because we have a legal obligation
We are subject to the law like everyone else. Sometimes, we must process your information in order
to comply with a statutory obligation.
For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if
they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order.
This may include your personal information.
Specific uses of information you provide to us
Information provided on the understanding that it will be shared with a third party
Our website allows you to post information with a view to that information being read, copied,
downloaded, or used by other people.
In posting personal information, it is up to you to satisfy yourself about the privacy level of
every person who might use it.
We do not specifically use this information. We do store it, and we reserve a right to use it in the
future in any way we decide.
Once your information enters the public domain, we have no control over what any individual third
party may do with it. We accept no responsibility for their actions at any time.
Provided your request is reasonable and there is no legal basis for us to retain it, then at our
discretion we may agree to your request to delete personal information that you have posted. You can
make a request by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Complaints regarding content on our website
We attempt to moderate user generated content, but we are not always able to do so as soon as that
content is published.
If you complain about any of the content on our website, we shall investigate your complaint.
If we feel it is justified or if we believe the law requires us to do so, we shall remove the
content while we investigate.
Free speech is a fundamental right, so we have to make a judgment as to whose right will be
obstructed: yours, or that of the person who posted the content that offends you.
If we think your complaint is vexatious or without any basis, we shall not correspond with you about
Job application and employment
If you send us information in connection with a job application, we may keep it for up to three
years in case we decide to contact you at a later date.
If we employ you, we collect information about you and your work from time to time throughout the

employment. After your employment has ended, we will keep your file for six years before destroying

name or email address.
When we receive a complaint, we record all the information you have given to us.
We use that information to resolve your complaint.
If your complaint reasonably requires us to contact some other person, we may decide to give to that
other person some of the information contained in your complaint. We do this as infrequently as
possible, but it is a matter for our sole discretion as to whether we do give information, and if we
do, what that information is.
We may also compile statistics showing information obtained from this source to assess the level of
service we provide, but not in a way that could identify you or any other person.
