- Your choices about the personal information you give us
1. THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We receive both Information that is directly provided to us – such as personal information you provide when you visit our website, use our app or participate in an activity on the Service – and information that is passively or automatically collected from you – such as usage information collected from your browser or device.
Information You Provide To Us: In order to participate in an activity on the Service, for example, a competition or other similar activity, you may be required to provide some contact information such as name and email address and other information such as a photograph or a video, depending on the specific activity. Additional details on collecting and processing will be provided at the point of collection and by the specific terms for participating in that activity.
Information That Is Passively Or Automatically Collected: We also receive information that is automatically collected from your browser or device when you visit the Service, such as page views, clicks, IP address, device type and the type of browser you are using.
Information We Receive From Third Parties: When you engage with our content through social media or any other Da Vinci Media sites or applications, you may allow those sites to share Information with us; such as content you have viewed or interacted with, and adverts which you have been shown or clicked on within the content.
The individual privacy policies for these sites and applications will contain more detail and give specific information on how to change your privacy settings.
2. PROTECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We’re strongly committed to keeping you and your family’s information safe. To do this we design our services with your safety in mind. We also have dedicated team roles to look after your Information security and privacy.
However, no service can be completely secure. If you have any concerns that your Da Vinci account or personal information has been put at risk, for example if someone could have found out your password, please get in touch straight away.
3. HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We use your information in four ways:
3.1 To fulfil a contract, or take steps linked to a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”):
- To provide the Service and to communicate with you about your account with us where we offer registration.

- To allow you to take part in any competitions that we run from time to time, administer the competition, notify you if you have won, verify your identity, residency and other eligibility requirements as applicable, deliver the prize and respond to any query you may have about the competition.
3.2 Where this is necessary for purposes which are in our, or third parties’, legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) of GDPR:
These interests are:
- To fulfil your requests and inquiries regarding the Service;
- To provide technical support (including testing, quality assurance, troubleshooting and security) for the Service.
- To analyze how the Service is used, including search queries, frequency of viewing and length of viewing time, page views and clicks, to help us manage and improve the Service and to develop new services.
- To manage the delivery of advertising, including the number of times the same advertisement is served and viewed.

3.3. Where you give us consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of GDPR:

4. RETENTION OF YOUR INFORMATION
Where we offer registration, we keep details of users who have registered with us for as long as you use the Service and your user account details for up to 18 months afterwards. We delete user profile information provided to us for the Service automatically when the registration for the Service is cancelled.
If you contact us with support queries, we keep the data for between 3 and 18 months, depending on the nature of the query and whether you have registered with us.
Where we process Information for marketing purposes, we process the Information while you remain interested in the marketing (for example, where you open and read our offers) and for three years after that point. If you ask us to stop sending marketing we will keep your Information for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your requests).
Where we process Information for a competition, we keep the data for 12 months from the day the competition ends unless a longer period is required by law.
4.1 Where we store your information:
Some companies that provide services to us run their services from outside the European Economic Area. We only let that happen if we are satisfied with their levels of security. Keep in mind that when you give us personal information it could be transferred, stored or processed in a location outside the EEA.
5. INFORMATION SHARING
We share your Information:
- With service providers we have engaged to perform business-related functions on our behalf. For example, for: research and analytics; content creation; providing customer support services; conducting or supporting marketing; hosting Services; providing technical or operational support; administering competitions or other user activity; maintaining databases; and otherwise supporting the Service.
- In response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena, a law enforcement or government agency’s request.
- If we or one of our business units undergo a business transition, like a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or part of our assets.
6. COOKIES AND SIMILAR TRACKING
7. YOUR RIGHTS
You have a number of rights in relation to your personal data:
- You have the right to ask us for a copy of your Information, to correct, delete or restrict (stop any active) processing of your Information; and to obtain the Information you provided to us.
- In addition, as far as the processing of your Information is based on our, or third parties’, legitimate interest, you have the right to object to the processing of your information.
- These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal Information about another person, or if you ask us to delete Information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping.
- You can withdraw your consent in respect of any processing of personal data which is based upon a consent which you have previously provided.
- You can opt out of receiving email newsletters and any other marketing communications by following the opt-out instructions provided to you in those emails.

We update this policy from time to time. If we make important changes, such as how we use your personal information, we’ll let you know. This notification can be a notice, an email, or a message in your app.
If you don’t agree to the changes, then you can always stop using our services, delete your account and stop giving us any more personal information. We’d be sorry to see you go.
