INTRODUCTION

I Am Truth provides an online store for customers through their website. At I Am Truth the privacy and security of our customers, respondents and visitors are of paramount importance. I Am Truth is committed to protecting the data you share with us. This privacy policy explains how I Am Truth processes information that can be used to directly or indirectly identify an individual (“Personal Data”) collected through use of its website and platform.

For the purposes of this policy, I Am Truth defines the term “Customer” as an entity with which I Am Truth has an established relationship, the term “Respondent” as any individual who purchases products provided by I Am Truth, or who is included as a contact in a Customer’s account and the term “Visitor” as an individual that visits our front-end website (for example www.Iamtruth.co.uk).

Any information stored on I Am Truth’s platform is treated as confidential. All information is stored securely and is accessed by authorised personnel only. I Am Truth implements and maintains appropriate technical, security and organisational measures to protect Personal Data against unauthorised or unlawful processing and use, and against accidental loss, destruction, damage, theft or disclosure.

COOKIES

Cookies are small pieces of information sent by a website to a Visitor’s hard disk. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. By continuing to visit the website, you agree to the placement of cookies on your device. If you choose not to accept our cookies, we cannot guarantee that your experience will be as fulfilling as it would otherwise be. We may also place cookies from third parties for functional and marketing purposes. The use of cookies is widespread and benefits the surfer.

This website or its third-party tools use cookies, which are necessary to its functioning and required to achieve the purposes illustrated in this cookie policy.  By closing the cookie warning banner, scrolling the page, clicking a link or continuing to browse otherwise, you agree to the use of cookies.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

For modern websites to work according to visitors’ expectations, they need to collect certain basic information about visitors. To do this, a site will create small text files which are placed on visitor’s devices – these files are known as cookies. Cookies are uniquely assigned to each visitor and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to the visitor. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to a visitor’s device.

Cookies do various jobs which make the visitor’s experience of the internet much smoother and more interactive. For instance, cookies are used to remember the visitor’s preferences on sites they visit often, to remember language preference and to help navigate between pages more efficiently. Much, though not all, of the data collected is anonymous, though some of it is designed to detect browsing patterns and approximate geographical location to improve the visitor experience.

VISITOR CONSENT

By continuing to use the website, you agree to the placement of cookies on your device. If you choose not to receive our cookies, we cannot guarantee that your experience will be as fulfilling as it would otherwise be.

USERS

GENERAL

In order to provide services to its customers, I Am Truth collects certain types of data from them. Furthermore, I Am Truth collects information from customers when they sign up to the newsletter, enter a prize draw, make a purchase or create an account. This section will describe how these types of data are collected and used by I Am Truth as well as geographical differences that effect this policy. Data entered or transferred into I Am Truth by Users such as texts, questions, contacts, media files, etc., remains the property of the User and may not be shared with a third party by I Am Truth  without express consent from the User.

 

 

 

COLLECTION OF USER DATA

During a Customers registration and later on I Am Truth’s website, they provide information such as name, email, address, telephone and other relevant data (I Am Truth  does not hold any payment details). This information is used by I Am Truth to identify the Customer and provide them with support, services, mailings, sales and marketing actions, billing and to meet any other contractual obligations.

I Am Truth will not retain Customer data longer than is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations.

PROCESSING IN THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA (EEA)

For Customers with accounts located in I Am Truth’s European Data Region, all processing of Personal Data is performed in accordance with privacy rights and regulations following the EU Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995 (the Directive), and the implementations of the Directive in local legislation. From May 25th, 2018, the Directive and local legislation based on the Directive will be replaced by the Regulations (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of Personal Data and on the free movement of such data, known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and I Am Truth’s processing will take place in accordance with the GDPR.

CONTROLLER

I Am Truth processes Personal Data both as a Processor and as a Controller, as defined in the Directive and the GDPR:

The I Am Truth entity which you as a Customer entered an agreement with when using I Am Truth’s platform, will be the Controller for User data, as outlined above in “Collection of User data” section.
For Respondent data, as outlined in the “Collection of Respondent data” section, the Customer will be the Controller in accordance with Directive and GDPR, and I Am Truth will be the Processor.

I Am Truth adheres to the Directive of 1995 and the GDPR from May 25th, 2018. Consequently, I Am Truth processes all data provided by its Customers with accounts in its European Data Region, in the European Economic Area (EEA) only.

All data collected by I Am Truth through surveys will be stored exclusively in secure hosting facilities provided by UK Fast. I Am Truth has a data processing agreement in place with its provider, ensuring compliance with the Directive. All hosting is performed in accordance with the highest security regulations. All transfers of data internally in the EEA is done in accordance with this data processing agreement.

RETENTION AND DELETION

I Am Truth will not retain data longer than is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations. For Respondent data, I Am Truth’s Customers have control of the purpose for collecting data, and the duration for which the Personal Data may be kept. For Respondent data, Customers with an active account will therefore have the responsibility to delete data when required. When a user’s account is terminated or expired, all Personal Data collected through the platform will be deleted, as required by applicable law.

ACCEPTANCE OF THESE CONDITIONS

We assume that all Visitors of our website, Respondents to surveys powered by I Am Truth and I Am Truth’s website customers have carefully read this document and agree to its contents. If someone does not agree with this privacy policy, they should refrain from using our website. We reserve the right to change our privacy policy as necessity dictates. Continued use of I Am Truth’s website and platform after having been informed of any such changes to these conditions implies acceptance of the revised privacy policy. This privacy policy is an integral part of I Am Truth’s terms of use.

We will reveal a user’s personal information without his/her prior permission only when we have reason to believe that the disclosure of this information is required to establish the identity of, to contact or to initiate legal proceedings against a person or persons who are suspected of infringing rights or property belonging to I Am Truth or to others who could be harmed by the user’s activities or of persons who could (deliberately or otherwise) transgress upon these rights and property.
