Disclosure of Personal Data

 

 
There are circumstances under which Plusto will disclose personal data. These circumstances are:
 

+         To protect anyone’s rights, safety or property,

+         To respond to legal requirements,

+         To enforce our policies or,

+         To respond to a claim that a listing or other content violates the rights of others.

 

We may also share personal data with:

+         Our subsidiaries and other members of our corporate family (such as CargoKey), to assist in detecting and preventing potentially illegal acts and provide joint content and services. Our corporate affiliates will only send marketing communications to users who request their specific services.

+         Law Enforcement officials, but only in response to a valid request relating to an alleged crime or other illegal activity. In these circumstances we will only disclose the information relevant to the investigation that is required to be provided by the relevant legal authority.

+         Service providers under contract who help with our business operations (such as fraud investigations, account collection, and affiliate rewards programs).

+         Other third party entities that you explicitly permit us to disclose your personal data to.

 

Without limiting the above, and in an effort to respect your privacy and our ability to keep the community free from bad actors, we will not disclose your personal information to law enforcement, government officials, or third parties without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.
 
In the event that we should merge with or be acquired by another business entity, the new combined entity or acquiring entity will be obliged to adhere to the terms of this privacy policy with respect to your personal data. If your personal data will be used in any other way than as described in this policy, you will receive prior notice.

Confidentiality and Security

 

 
Your information is stored on our servers located in the United States. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.
 
Plusto uses numerous tools to protect your personal data against unauthorized access. We use encryption, passwords and even physical security when storing and transmitting data. However, third parties may still unlawfully access transmissions and intercept data transfer or private communications, and they may misuse or abuse the data collected.
 
We have implemented security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from unauthorized access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorized modification or unlawful destruction or accidental loss.
 
All our employees and data processors, who have access to, and are associated with the processing of personal data, are obliged to respect the confidentiality of our users personal data.
 
We ensure that your personal data will not be disclosed to State institutions and authorities except if required by law or other regulation.
 
Your password is the key to your account. Use unique numbers, letters and special characters, and do not disclose your Plusto username or password to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal data and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify Plusto and change your password.
 
 

 

Accessing and Reviewing your Personal Data

 

 
You can always access certain Personal Data that we keep about you through My Plusto.
 
Should you require a full readable copy of all of the data which we have on record about you, you can request it by contacting us. We will require proof of your identity before providing this information to you and will charge an administrative fee of €15.00.
 
We allow you to challenge the data that we hold about you and, where appropriate, you may have the data:
 

+         rectified or amended

+         completed

 

Generally, we will not manually modify your personal data because it is very difficult to verify your identity remotely. You must promptly update your personal data if it changes or is inaccurate.
 
We do retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, and enforce our User Agreement, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law.

We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
