In addition, social media providers, such as Facebook, may send us information about you in line with their policies.

We use IP addresses for various purposes, including to:

  • Diagnose service or technology problems reported by our users or engineers that are associated with the IP addresses controlled by a specific web company or ISP;

Legal basis for processing

If you are a visitor from the European Economic Area, our legal basis for collecting and using your personal data will depend on the personal data concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

However, we will normally collect personal data from you only where: (a) we have your consent to do so, (b) where we need the personal data to perform a contract with you (e.g. to provide you with the services you have subscribed to or purchased), or (c) where the processing is in our or a third party’s legitimate interests (and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms). In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal data from you, or may otherwise need the personal data to protect your vital interests or those of another person (though this is less common).

If you have any questions about the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal data, please contact us using the contact information further below.

When we share and disclose information

JazzConnects does not rent or sell personal information about you to third parties, however, we reserve the right to share the personal information we collect about you through our Services with third parties when we have your permission or under the following circumstances:

  • We may provide data to trusted partners who work on our behalf to communicate with you about offers from JazzConnects and our marketing partners, or to provide you with our location based services. Note, these companies do not have any right to use or share your personal data for any other purposes, however they may use aggregate data for statistical purposes;
  • We may also provide data to our third party analytics partners, such as Google Analytics, for the purposes of tracking usage information.

JazzConnects will provide you with notice before your personal information becomes subject to a different privacy policy unless the privacy policy remains tied to JazzConnects’ own practices.

  • Our Services may offer you the ability to register and login using your third party social media account details (like your Facebook logins). Where you choose to do this, we will receive certain profile information about you from your social media provider. The profile information we receive may vary depending on the social media provider concerned, but will often include your name, email address, friends list, profile picture as well as other information you choose to make public. If you login using Facebook, we may also request access to other permissions related to your account, such as friends, check-ins, and likes, and you may choose to grant or deny us access to each individual permission.
  • We will use the information we receive only for the purposes that are described in this privacy policy or that are otherwise made clear to you through our Services.

Data retention

  • We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with JazzConnects.
  • We may retain certain information associated with your account in our archives, including for analytical purposes as well as for recordkeeping integrity. The periods for which we retain your information depend on the purpose for which we collected it and we use it.
  • We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).
  • When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible. If you request termination of your JazzConnects account, it is our practice to deactivate your account and block further email deliveries to you in approximately ten business days.
