What Is Personal Information And Why Do We Collect It?
Personal Information is information or an opinion that identifies an individual. Examples of Personal Information we collect may include contact information such as names, addresses, email addresses, social media handles and phone number.

We don’t guarantee privacy policies of website links that may be on our platform from time to time nor the policy of any authorised third parties. However, we will endeavour to act to remove links or to otherwise attempt to remediate the situation within a reasonable period of time if we are notified that a third-party site or link visible or clickable from our site is in breach of the privacy principles we uphold. (You may notify us via our provided in-app feedback form.) We collect your Personal Information for the primary purpose of providing our services to you, providing information to our clients, marketing and to enable our machine learning algorithms to operate to maximum effectiveness to provide you with the best possible tailored experience. We may also use your Personal Information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure. You may unsubscribe from our mailing/marketing lists at any time by contacting us in writing or by clicking our unsubscribe link in any emails we send from time to time. When we collect Personal Information we will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it.

Sensitive information will be used by us only: For the primary purpose for which it was obtained, or for a secondary purpose that is directly related to the primary purpose, with your consent; or where required or authorised by law.
Where reasonable and practicable to do so, we will collect your Personal Information only from you. However, in some circumstances we may be provided with information by third parties. In such a case we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of the information provided to us by the third party.
