The data protection law in Europe requires a “lawful basis” for collecting and retaining personal information from citizens or residents of the European Economic Area. Our lawful basis includes:
Performing the contract we have with you: We need your personal data in certain circumstances to comply with our contractual obligation for delivering our services, enabling customers to publish projects to get, find and buy content from suppliers, and enabling suppliers to upload, expose and (if desired so) to sell their content.
Legal compliance: Sometimes the law says that we need to collect and use your data. Tax laws for example require us to retain records of payments and transactions made through our services.
Legitimate interests: This is a technical term in data protection law which essentially means we have a good and fair reason to use your data and we do so in ways which do not hurt your interests and rights. We sometimes require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way that might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and that does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.
For example, we use identity, device, and location information to prevent fraud and abuse and to keep the Services secure. We may also send you promotional communications about our Services, subject to your right to control whether we do so.
We analyse how users interact with our Site so we can understand better what elements of the design are working well and which are not working so well. This allows us to improve and develop the quality of the online experience we offer all our users.
Except as set out below and to the extent required by any applicable law or governmental or judicial body, we will not disclose your personal information to any third party.
