  1. The Personal Data we collect and process:

“Personal Data”, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).

We do not collect any special categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you:

  1. Information you provide to us

When you create an account on our Services, you are required to provide your full name, valid email address and, date of birth, and mobile telephone number. This is the only information required for creating an account with us. You may also choose to provide a profile photo, gender, residential address, location and username.

We collect the content, communications and other information you provide when you use our Services, including when you create or share photos or other content, react to the content of other users and message or communicate with others. This can include information in or about the content you provide (like metadata), such as the location of a photo or the date a file was created, used for analytics.

We collect and process this data for the purpose of registering you as a user and to provide our Services to you. In addition to your consent, the legal grounds for collecting, processing and using your personal data is the performance of the agreement between you and us to provide you with the Services and our legitimate interests of protecting the security of our users’ accounts. If you actively consent  to receiving newsletters, marketing and promotional information from us, we will also process your email address for the purpose of providing you with the same. The legal ground for processing your email address for this purpose is your consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time through the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each of our marketing emails.

We may also use tracking pixels in our email newsletter enabling us to see if and when an email was opened and if certain links in that email were clicked by the addressee. This allows analysis, reporting and optimization of email marketing campaigns. Legal basis of the usage of such tracking pixels is your consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time through the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each of our marketing emails or by contacting info@weshik.com

Any information you provide to us is provided by you voluntarily, and you may withdraw your consent to the use of your personal information hereunder at any time. However, certain information is required in order for you to register and enjoy the full benefits of our Services, and a withdrawal of your consent might limit your ability to enjoy our Services.

  1. Information processed when you sign in to your account with Social Media Credentials (if you choose to do so).

You may choose to sign in to your account using your social media sign in credentials (e.g., your Facebook or Google sign in credentials). If you choose to do this, the first time you do so you will be asked whether you agree that the social media provider may provide certain information to us, such as your name, email address, profile photo, posts, comments and other information associated with your social media account.

All this information is made available to us by the social media provider due to the way the social sign-in configuration works. However, the only information we retain and process is your name and email address. If you do not want your information to be shared with us by the social media provider, then you can simply sign in to your account using your account credentials instead of your social media account credentials.

We associate the email address provided by the social media provider with your account so that you can use your email address to sign in to your account in the future if you no longer wish to sign in using your social media account credentials. The legal ground for processing this information for this purpose is our legitimate interest in providing you an alternative sign in method and in securing your account.

When you interact with our customer support representatives via email, telephone, or online , we collect and process personal data, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, email address and contact preferences.

To improve customer service, subject to applicable laws, we may also record and review conversations with customer support representatives, and analyse any feedback provided to us through voluntary customer surveys.

We use this information to provide you with customer support and to monitor the quality and types of customer support we provide to our customers. The legal ground for processing this information for these purposes is WeShik’s legitimate interests in providing quality customer support. The legal ground for signing in to your account, if appropriate, to help troubleshoot and resolve your issue is consent, which you may withdraw.

WeShik will retain your information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements, or for as long as your account is active, or as needed to provide you services, or for the relevant term under the respective statute of limitation that may apply to the relationship between you and us.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

  1. How do We Secure Your Information?        

We consider data security a top priority and we do our best to keep your Personal Data secure. We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. Such measures include:

  • Encrypting many of our services using SSL.

  • Employing firewalls and intrusion detection systems.

  • Practicing administrative, technical, and physical security procedures to help protect the information you provide us.

In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with personal data breach (whether such breach is actual or a probable threat) and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Please keep in mind that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. As a result, although we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot promise or guarantee that such information will be immune from any wrongdoings, malfunctions, unlawful interceptions or access, or other kinds of abuse and misuse.

If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the "Contact Details" section above.

Our Services are not directed to children under 13 years.

  1. Your Legal Rights

If you reside in the European Union, you have certain rights under European Data Protection Law with regard to your personal data. You have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

  • Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

  • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us to continue processing it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which, if applicable, will be notified to you at the time of your request.

  • Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

  • Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it in order to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

  • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

  • Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, or to delete your account, please contact us under info@weshik.com

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

If you do not reside in the European Union but you believe that you have a right to restriction of processing or a right to object to processing under your local laws, please contact WeShik at weshik.info@gmail.com
