2. What personal information do we process?

Interweb will not collect any personally identifiable information ('Personal Data') through our website unless it is provided to us voluntarily as part of a newsletter subscription or voucher alert. The only information required to complete a subscription is an email address, but you may also choose to let us know your first name, last name and whether you are currently based in Scotland (this is used to tailor your offers accordingly). Interweb offers users who have voluntarily provided Personal Data to us the opportunity to remove, review or update the information provided and correct any errors via an 'Update your preferences' link in every email.

We may use certain information (e.g. geographical location) in order to personalise the emails that you receive. We may store and process that information to better understand the type of individuals that visit our website and their needs and how we can improve our products and services.


3. Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Different technologies are used to collect aggregate statistics about our customer and visitor base, including cookies and web server logs. Web server logs tell which pages are more and less popular on The Site and where people were before they came to The Site. Cookies, as explained in detail below, tell us how many people visit The Site, how many people return to The Site, and often those people return to The Site.

We use these statistics to monitor traffic so we can effectively handle site capacity. The statistics also help us determine which parts of the site are most popular. With this information, we can continually improve The Site to better meet the needs of our clients and prospective clients.

To better target our advertising, we may use an outside vendor to gather the following types of non-personally identifiable information about users who come to our sites via our ad banners:

  1. Your IP address (a unique number assigned to every computer on the Internet). Information that can be inferred from the IP address includes the user's geographic location, company, type, and size of organization.
  2. Your domain type (i.e. .com, .net, or .edu.).
  3. Standard information included with every communication sent on the Internet. For example, information which we can infer from this standard information might include your browser version and type (e. g. Netscape or Internet Explorer), operating system (i.e., Windows or Macintosh), browser language (e. g. Java or Unix), service provider (e. g. MindSpring or AOL), your local time, etc.
  4. How you utilize the pages you visit within our site (e.g. which pages you view).

We may also provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no Personal Data or personally identifying information.


4. What are the legal grounds for processing your personal data?

Data Protection law stipulates that we are permitted to use personal information only if we have a proper reason to do so. We have detailed below our legal bases for using your personal data:

  • To perform our contract with you: Where processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party, or to take steps at your request before entering into it.
  • For our own legitimate interests: Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us, except where these interests are overridden by your fundamental rights and freedoms. For example, for the purposes of market research, analysis and the development of statistics.
  • Your consent: When you have given your explicit consent to the processing of your personal data. This includes marketing communications, such as email newsletters, direct mail, and SMS messaging.
  • Compliance with a legal obligation: Processing is required for compliance with a legal or regulatory requirement, to exercise your rights under data protection law, and for the establishment and defence of legal rights.
  • For legal claims: Processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or whenever courts are acting in their judicial capacity.

5. International transfers

When you consent to receive email updates from us, the limited personal data you have provided to us is stored on the secure servers of US-based third-party email provider, MailChimp (owned by The Rocket Science Group LLC). We use MailChimp to distribute marketing emails to our subscribers.

MailChimp is fully compliant with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. This means that they are certified to receive data from Interweb Media. Under the GDPR, Interweb Media is deemed the ‘Data Controller’ and MailChimp the ‘Data Processor’.
