MyTime Privacy Policy

We, MyTime Retirement Limited, are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This Privacy Policy relates to our website at www.mytimeto.co.uk and/or any of our other online or mobile content and services (collectively, the “Site”).

This Privacy Policy explains how we use any personal information that we collect about you when you use the Site.  Further details of how we use your information is set out in our Cookies Policy, which forms part of this Privacy Policy.

By using the Site, you consent to the collection, storage and use of your personal information as described below. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Site.

Data protection compliance

This Site is controlled by us from our offices in the United Kingdom (“UK”). Personal information collected from the Site is processed in accordance with UK data-protection and privacy laws, including the Data Protection Act 1998 (the “Act“), which regulates the processing of personal data in the UK.

If you choose to visit the Site from outside the UK, you do so at your own risk, with the understanding that personal information may be collected, stored and used in a country whose privacy laws may be different and less protective than those of your home country.

The information we collect from you

When you use the Site (such as when registering with us), we may ask you to provide us with personal information that identifies you personally (including “personal data” as defined in the Act).  This may include your name, email address and date of birth.  From time to time, you may be asked to submit personal information in order to use certain aspects of the Site, or for the purposes further described in this Privacy Policy.

Whenever you provide such personal information, we shall treat that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

You may decide to make certain information available for other users of the Site to see (for example, whether you are posting volunteer positions or looking for opportunities). In this context, we recommend that, when saving your preference on the Site in relation to any given field of information, you carefully consider who can see that field and select the appropriate option.  Please note that once you have made information visible or initiated a communication via the Site, the relevant information displayed will be shared with the recipient of that information.

We may also collect certain anonymous usage data, such as pages visited and services used within the Site. This information is not personally identifiable information and generally is not aggregated with your personal information. We generally use usage data to improve our services to you and to customise and enhance your experience of the Site.

How we use personal information

We use your personal information for the purposes of:

facilitating your efficient use of the Site, including any sharing of information about you that you make visible to other users of the Site;

where you register with us, processing and administering your registration;

processing details of your personal interests and preferences submitted to us via the Site;

analysing your use of the Site with a view to improving your and other users’ experience of the Site;

performing our Terms of Use, along with any related customer-service information and communications; and

any other general or special use that you may permit under any particular request for permission that we may make from to time.

We shall not use your personal information for marketing or promotional purposes unless we obtain your consent to do so. In any such marketing or promotional communications, we shall give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving such communications in the future.

This might restrict us if we want to advertise or offer some sponsored tie-up with companies offering services to retired people. Do we need to include this? If so, would it be easy to change this in the future?

We reserve the right to monitor your records to check any complaint or allegation of abuse, infringement of third-party rights or any other unauthorised use of the Site.

Disclosure of your personal information

We may disclose your personal information to third parties where:

they provide products, content or services to us in connection with your use of the Site;

we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal information to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets;

our company or substantially all of our assets are to be acquired by a third party, in which case we may disclose your personal information to the prospective acquirer and personal data held by us about users of the Site will be one of the transferred assets; and/or

we reasonably believe that we need to disclose your personal information to other person(s) (a) by order of any court or governmental or regulatory body of competent authority, (b) to comply with any legal obligation, (c) to enforce or apply our Terms of Use or other contracts and/or (d) to protect our, our users’ or any other third parties’ rights, property or safety.

We may also process your personal information to anonymise and aggregate it with other data and to disclose such anonymous and aggregate data to our affiliates and/or business partners.

Certain parts of the Site may allow you to post personal information alongside content generated by or made available to you on the Site (such as postings of volunteer positions).  In doing so, you accept that such personal information may be disclosed to other users of the part of the Site concerned, and we are not responsible for information or content that you choose to post in this way.  Please think carefully before deciding what information to share in this way, and for any information about you of a sensitive nature, we recommend that you only share that with recipients that you trust and in any event separately from the Site.

Does this make sense?

Except as required or allowed by law or as set out in this Privacy Policy, we shall not disclose or dispose of your personal information to any third party without your permission.

Tracking technology and IP addresses

We may collect and process information about your computer or other device, including (where available) your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration. This comprises statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

We may, however, link IP addresses to personal data and/or non-personal data in order to enforce our Terms of Use, and we may block certain IP addresses from accessing all or any part of the Site in the event of a user abuse.

Cookies

We use cookies to track your use of the Site and to personalise your experience of it.

Where we store your personal information

All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers or systems maintained by us or third parties providing hosting or other services for us.

The information we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA“), including any destination where the privacy laws of the country concerned may be different and less protective than those of EEA countries. It may also be processed by personnel operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such personnel may be engaged in, among other things, the provision of support services.

By submitting your personal information, you agree to this transfer, storing and processing.

Information security

We take every reasonable precaution to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information and to ensure that it will be processed in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet or mobile networks is not completely secure. You acknowledge and accept that others may intercept personal information you provide to us, and that any such transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

You can check and edit the personal information we hold about you at any time via the Site or by contacting us (details in our Terms of Use).

If you would like a copy of the personal information that we hold about you, we are entitled to charge you £10 (plus VAT) for providing you with this. To make such a request, please contact us in writing (details in our Terms of Use).
