GhostMag, as a Data Controller, is committed to protecting the rights and respecting the privacy of its users in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and other privacy legislation where applicable.
The policy sets out how GhostMag will collect information about users through interaction with its website and what it will use it for.
Personal Data that GhostMag collects includes but is not limited to, first name, surname, email address, and postal address. Some of this information is optional. GhostMag will not normally collect any sensitive personal information. If it does, it will request the user’s explicit prior consent to do so.
Personal details are collected when a user creates an account, subscribes to the email newsletter, submits comments via contact forms, sends an email to an email address associated with the website, or enters a competition.
Some website features allow a user to invite a contact, such as a friend or family member to use the service. In order to provide this service, GhostMag will collect both the user’s personal details and the contact’s. The contact’s personal data will only be used once and will not be saved or stored in any way.
Anonymous data is also collected via Google Analytics. This anonymous statistical information about the use of the website helps GhostMag understand how users use its services and features, and enables it to ensure that the content it produces is well received and of interest to its readers.
GhostMag will always be transparent about how it plans to use a user’s data. If a user gives consent and has opted to receive communications, then GhostMag may use the user’s personal information to communicate about its services and promotions, or send notifications of new content and features which may be of interest to the user.
User data will be stored securely on the GhostMag server for a reasonable duration in order to smoothly serve content. This may be in the form of cache files, database entries, or other server-side storage methods. Data submitted through contact forms will be deleted within 30 days of submission and postal addresses will be deleted once orders have been fulfilled.
The servers are protected using HTTPS and SSL technology.
User data will not be sold, traded, rented or otherwise passed on to any third-parties, unless the user has given explicit prior consent. However, GhostMag may disclose personal information to a third-party in order to process orders, or to arrange the prize fulfilment for competition winners.
GhostMag may also disclose personal information about a user to comply with applicable laws and when requested to do so by law enforcement agencies or government bodies.
GhostMag reserves the right to transfer personal information it has about a user in the event it sells or transfers its website. Following such a sale or transfer, the user may contact the organisation behind the purchase with any inquiries concerning the processing of that information.
Users have the right to see what information GhostMag holds about them. They may ask GhostMag to make any changes that they consider necessary to ensure the information is accurate, or have their information completely removed from its records.
