WHAT TYPE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION IS COLLECTED AND HOW DO WE USE IT?
Personally Identifiable Information. When you engage in certain activities via the Site/Service you may provide information to us which may include personal information, which is information that may reasonably be used to identify you, such as username, your name, address, zip code, e-mail address, telephone number, images you upload and other content you upload to the Site or provide to us.

In the event you enrol in the Site through a third party, such as Facebook or Google, or another party we may receive Personally Identifiable Information from such third party and by using the Service, you consent to our receipt and sharing of Personally Identifiable Information.
The legal basis for this processing is your consent or our legitimate interests, namely monitoring and improving our Site and Service.
Types of Personally Identifiable Information:
The information collected from social networks depends on what information you have made available on the network and your privacy settings for sharing such information on the network. Depending on the settings, we may e.g. collect the following information about you:
When you request to have your Insiderz profile connected to a profile on a social network, you will be informed on which information we will collect from the network in question before your request is executed. The purpose of collecting information from social networks is to connect members of your network, which are both users of Insiderz and of one or more of the social networks, and thereby both increase the confidence in the reviews made by the members of the network as well as create a better user experience on the Site. Insiderz does not collect other personal identifiable information from visitors of the Site, unless the visitor provides the information to us.
You agree, represent and warrant that all account registration information provided by you is accurate and up to date. If any of your registration information changes, you must update it on the Site or Service.

SECURITY OF INFORMATION
In the event you are provided with an opportunity to establish and account or profile on our Site, you may be able to access your Personally Identifiable Information via the Site with your password and username. This password is encrypted. We advise against sharing your password with anyone. If you access your account via a third-party site or service, you may have additional or different sign-in protections via that third-party site or service.
You need to prevent unauthorised access to your account and Personal Identifiable Information by selecting and protecting your password and/or other sign-in mechanism appropriately and limiting access to your computer, browser, or mobile device by signing off after you have finished accessing your account. Unauthorised entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time. If we believe that the security of your information may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development.
Please be aware that no data transmission over the Internet or via e-mail is completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee protection of all personal information in all cases. For example, we cannot guarantee protection against interception, misappropriation, misuse, or alteration, or that your information will not be disclosed or accessed by the unauthorised acts of others. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. If you provide us with your credit card number, you should not send it electronically unless the email is encrypted, or your browser indicates that the access to our website is secure. Materials posted to online forums such as bulletin boards or chat rooms are public, not secure, and may be viewed by anyone. Any personal information you post may be collected and used by anyone and may result in unsolicited messages from other parties.
When any personal data is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected, we may destroy the personal information in a manner that takes into account its sensitivity.
We will retain your personal data only for as long as is necessary (taking into consideration the purpose for which it was originally obtained). The criteria we use to determine what is “necessary” depends on the particular personal information in question and the specific relationship we have with you (including its duration).
Our normal practice is to determine whether there is/are any specific laws permitting or even obliging us to keep certain personal data for a certain period of time (in which case we will keep the personal data for the maximum period indicated by any such law).
We would also have to determine whether there are any laws and/or contractual provisions that may be invoked against us by you and/or third parties and if so, what the prescriptive periods for such actions are (this is usually three years). In the latter case, we will keep any relevant personal data that we may need to define ourselves against any claims, challenges or other such actions by you and/or third parties for such time as is necessary.
Where your personal information is no longer required by us, we will either securely delete or anonymise the personal information.
Please contact us if you wish to inquire about deleting your own personal data.
The Site/Service is not directed to children under the age of eighteen (18). If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us at the email address listed below. If we become aware that a child under this age has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s account.
