"News, calm" is a global entity. The physical servers are located in England. By using the services, you authorize "News, calm" to use your information according to England's laws, regardless of which country you are located in.
In a gist, what all of the below means:
- I only collect your email, so that I can send you a daily digest.
- I store when is your plan ending.
- I store a hash id that maps to your Stripe subscription (so I can know you've paid or not).
- I DO NOT store credit cards or any other personal information.
- I DO NOT store any tracking or cookies (other than for knowing you're logged in).
- I DO NOT keep any logs for more than 7 days.
1. Processing of your data
"News, calm" processes user data only to a very limited scope – only as much as it is absolutely required for provision of the Services, processing of payments for the Services, as well as functioning of the website and application.
Personal data is processed by "News, calm" automatically and manually. Unless expressly noted otherwise, "News, calm" shall act as the responsible personal data controller for any data processed. "News, calm" uses third party data processors only for processing of payment data.
Anyone may browse the website without signing up for the Services, however the functionality of the Services will be very limited or absent. If you want to engage in full functionality of the Services, you need to create a user account and provide basic personal data indicated below.
If you choose to create a user account, you must provide the following basic information:
- Email address. I ask for your email address as part of your registration. That ensures that I can communicate with you strictly for the use of the Services (sending a daily digest, login link, or update email link).
- Payment data. I use Stripe to process payments. I only record a hash id to know you've paid and until when. That payment processing partner processes basic billing information for payment processing and refund requests.
You must maintain this information current, truthful, complete and accurate. You warrant that you are authorized to provide such information. You authorize me to verify your information at any time. If it is found to be untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, I retain the right, in my sole discretion, to suspend or terminate your user account and your access to the Services.
2. Personal data of underage persons
Persons younger than 18 shall not use the Services and provide any personal data to me without the supervision of the parents or guardians. "News, calm" shall never knowingly collect personal information from persons younger than 18, and shall not disclose such personal data to third parties without the consent. Based on the above, it is presumed that any person using the "News, calm" Services and supplying personal data to me is at least 18 years of age. If a person younger than 18 years old or a person, supplying wrongful data, become known to "News, calm", such person and all their data may be immediately and without any notice withdrawn by suspending their access to the Services.
3. Grounds for data processing
Your personal data is processed for the purpose of providing you the best services under the legal basis of performance of the contract between you and "News, calm", as provided in the Terms of Service.
I will not process your personal data (email address) any purpose other than providing the Services.
4. Your personal data protection rights
You may request me to inform you about the personal data that I have collected about you, to request any changes or correction of inaccurate information, to object to certain processing of personal data, to provide you with a copy of your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, to transmit (if technically feasible) your personal data to another controller, or to erase your personal data. You also may request to restrict the processing of your personal data (when there is a legal basis for that). In cases where your personal data is processed on a separate consent basis, you have the right at any time to withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data.
If you disagree with your data processing by "News, calm", you are free not to use the Service, and to discontinue using it at any time. You may request us to discontinue processing of your personal data, in which case your data will be processed only as much as it is necessary to effect the discontinuation of your use of the Services (e.g., final settlement, or deleting all personal data based on your email address), or finalizing other "News, calm"'s legal relationship with you (e.g. accounting, invoicing, processing refunds).
Due to technical reasons (such as backup copies of the databases) your personal data may be finally deleted only within 30 days, if it is mandated by the statutory requirements.
5. Terms for storing personal data
"News, calm" stores limited personal data for the whole period when the Services are used and for no longer than 2 months after the last use of the Services.
6. Other Terms
Your data is processed under the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom. If the data is processed by a designated subsidiary in your country, then the domestic law of your country may be applicable at my discretion.
Under no circumstances is "News, calm" liable for the consequences of your unlawful activities, your willful and negligent activities violating applicable laws or third party rights, as well as any circumstances, which may not have been reasonably controlled or foreseen.
