Future Design Unit ("FDU") Privacy Policy

1. FDU's approach to privacy 

 1.1 We appreciate your interest in our website (http://taxiforemail.com/) (the "Service"). Privacy protection is very important to us. This Privacy Policy sets out information about how we collect, store, process, transfer and use Personal Data relating to you ("Personal Data"). 

 1.2 For the purposes of EU data protection laws ("Data Protection Legislation"), FDU is the data controller of personal information we hold about you (i.e., the company which is responsible for, and controls the processing of your Personal Data). 

1.3 You should also be aware that we use cookies and similar technologies to store and access information whilst providing access to our Website.

1.4 Our data protection officer can be contacted by writing to [email protected].

2. Personal Data we COLLECT about you AND HOW WE USE IT 

2.1 We collect Personal Data about you when you voluntarily submit information directly to us when you access and use the Service. This can include information you provide to us when you e-mail us using the links on the Service, fill in a form, correspond with us via the Service, phone, email or otherwise, subscribe to our mailing lists, newsletters or other forms of marketing communications, respond to surveys or use some other feature of the Service as available from time to time.

2.2 If you choose not to provide Personal Data, we may not be able to provide the Service to you or respond to your other requests.

2.3 The table at Annex 1 sets out the categories of Personal Data we collect about you, how we use such information and how it is disclosed. The table also lists the legal basis which we rely on to process the Personal Data.

2.4 We also automatically collect Personal Data about you indirectly, including about how you access and use the Service and information about the device you use to access the Service.

2.5 The table at Annex 2 sets out the categories of Personal Data we collect about you automatically and how we use that information. The table also lists the legal basis which we rely on to process the Personal Data.

2.6 We may link or combine the Personal Data we collect about you and the information we collect automatically. This allows us to provide you with a personalised experience regardless of how you interact with us. 

2.7 We may anonymise and aggregate any of the personal data we collect (so that it does not directly identify you). We may use anonymised information for our business purposes including testing our IT systems, research, data analysis, improving the Service and developing new products and features. We may also share such anonymised information with others.

3. Personal Data we share with third parties 

3.1 We may share your Personal Data with the following parties for the purposes set out as follows, as further detailed in Annex 1 and Annex 2

(a) Companies in the same group of companies as us: our subsidiaries (i.e. any organisation we own or control) or our ultimate holding company (i.e. any organisation that owns or controls us) and any subsidiaries it owns. These companies will only use your Personal Data in the same way as we can under this Privacy Policy. 

(b) Service providers and advisors: Personal Data may be disclosed to third party vendors and other service providers that perform services for us, on our behalf, which may include identifying and serving targeted advertisements (for example, on Facebook and Twitter), providing payment, mailing or email services, tax and accounting services, data enhancement services, fraud prevention services, web hosting, and/or analytic services. 

(c) Purchasers of our business: Personal Data may be disclosed or transferred to buyers or perspective buyers of our business or any of our assets as part of the sale. 

(d) Law enforcement, regulators and other parties for legal reasons: Third parties who we are under a legal obligation to disclose your Personal Data to or to whom we need to disclose your Personal Data to protect our rights, property or safety or the rights, property or safety of others, detect and investigate illegal activities and breaches of any agreement we have with you.

3.2 We do not disclose information about identifiable individuals to anyone else except as set out above. We may provide third parties with aggregate statistical information and analytics about users of the Service but we will make sure no one can be identified from this information before we disclose it. 

4. Marketing and Advertising 

4.1 Email Marketing: From time to time, we may contact you by email with information about the Service. If you do not want us to send you email marketing, you can tick certain boxes on forms we use to collect your Personal Data or you can let us know that you do not wish to receive marketing by sending an email to us at [email protected] You may also be able unsubscribe from our marketing emails by clicking on the unsubscribe link (where available) in the emails we send to you. 

4.2 Advertising on other websites: We, or our advertising partners, may show advertisements to you on other websites or through apps. To do this we, or our advertising partners, may collect information about how you use the Service or the types of other web pages, content and ads you, or others who are using the device you connect to the Service with, interact with, visit or view. The information collected might also include the IP address of the device you connect to the Service. 

 We, or our advertising partners, use the information that is collected to make sure adverts you see either on other websites or apps (where our partners have advertising space) are more relevant to you. The techniques our advertising partners use recognise the device you are using but are not aimed at you as a named individual. Typically cookies and similar technologies are used to provide this type of advertising. You can find out more about cookies and how to manage their use by reading our Cookies Policy.   

5. Storing and transferring your Personal Data 

 5.1 Security. We implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, change or damage. All Personal Data we collect will be stored on secure servers. All electronic transaction entered into via our Service will be protected by SSL encryption technology.

5.2 International Transfers of your Personal Data. Your personal data may be transferred to, and processed and stored in, countries outside of the jurisdiction you are in where we and our third party service providers have operations. If you are located in the European Economic Area ("EEA"), your personal data may be processed outside of the EEA (an "International Transfer"). Any International Transfers of your personal data are made either: 

(a) to a country or territory ensuring an adequate level of protection for the rights and freedoms of data subjects in relation to the processing of personal data as determined by the European Commission; 

(b) to a third party that is a member of a compliance scheme recognised as offering adequate protection for the rights and freedoms of data subjects as determined by the European Commission, such as the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield; or 

(c) pursuant to appropriate safeguards, such as the Standard Contractual Clauses (processors) approved by European Commission Decision C(2010)593 or any subsequent version thereof released by the European Commission. If you wish to enquire further about these safeguards used, please contact us using the details set out at the end of this Privacy Policy.

9. Links to third party sites 

The Service may, from time to time, contain links to and from third party websites of our partner networks, advertisers, partner merchants, news publications, retailers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for their policies.

10. Incorporation of services and contents from third parties into our Servic

Contents of third parties, such as videos from YouTube, maps of Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, are or will be integrated into our Service. This always requires that the providers of the contents ("Third Party Provider") will process the IP address or other personal information about you. Without this information they could not send the content for you to view or use. Where an IP address or other personal information is necessary for showing the Third Party Provider content, we try to use content only from those providers that use the IP address or other personal information only for the delivery of such content. However, we have no influence on whether or not the Third Party Provider will save the IP address or other personal information for their own use, e.g. for statistical purposes.

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time and so you should review this Privacy Policy periodically. When we change this Privacy Policy in a material way, we will update the “last modified” date at the bottom of this Privacy Policy.

If we need to provide you with information about something, whether for legal, marketing or other business related purposes, we will select what we believe is the best way to get in contact with you. We will usually do this through email or by placing a notice on the Service. The fact that we may send notices to you will not stop you from being able to opt out of certain types of contact as described in this Privacy Policy.
