As Bookyourdata (“The Company”), the protection and security of your personal data are at paramount
important to us.
Therefore, we are constantly reviewing our data processing activities and revising our policies
in accordance with the applicable legislation in our present markets.
(“Websites”) are also reviewed in accordance with General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”)
and Californian Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) applies to all Websites, apps, events and to any other
services owned and operated by the Company.
1. Data Processing Principles
a. Information Automatically Collected.
When you access our Websites, we and our possible third party partners automatically record information
from your device and its software, such as your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider,
platform type, the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave our website,
date and time stamp and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your account.
When you access our Services using a mobile device, we may also receive or collect identification
numbers associated with your device (such as a unique device ID, IDFA, Google AdID), device type,
model and manufacturer, mobile device operating system brand and model, phone number, email address,
and other apps that you have downloaded ("Technical Data").
b. Location Data.
We do not currently collect your precise geolocation or any latitude or longitude coordinates for you.
Some of the information we collect, for example an IP address, can sometimes be used to approximate a
device’s location. In some cases, we assign the latitude and longitude of the centre of a city or state
on record for you to your profile as a way to improve our analytics and offer best matches for you.
This is a general latitude and longitude and does not correspond to your real time or historical location
c. Information Provided by Others.
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.
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 our services and developing new products and features. We may also share
such anonymised information with others.
Where you do not provide the personal data, we may not be able to provide you the related services; as it may depend on this information.
2. How & What Personal Information We Collect and How We Use:
Personal Information We Collect:
We only collect and process the following categories of data about companies and business professionals;
How and Where We Collect:
- Full Name
- Business Email Address
- Job Title
- Business Phone Numbers (general and direct)
- Business Office Address
- Public Social Link
How and Why We Use:
- Public Information either publicized by you or by a 3rd party that you have authorized
- Directly and indirectly from user activity on our Website
We provide accurate business data to our customer to promote their goods and services using
direct marketing to the right people (decision makers, influencers, champions etc.);
Promoting your business in the web searches,
- Enabling you to interact with features or tools on our platform such as live chat;
- Providing you our existing and new services,
- Improving your user experience and our features;
We will not collect additional categories of personal information or use the personal information
we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing prior
The main reason we use your information is to deliver what we offer and constantly improve our services.
Additionally, we use your information to help keep you safe and to provide you with advertising that
may be of interest to you.
Besides, in line with the aforementioned, we may also use your personal data in the following circumstances:
Where you have given consent for us to use your personal data, for the stated purposes like;
marketing, sales and any sort of informative reasons
Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests
and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
- Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligations.
When the public area of the website is used, the user’s automatically anonymised IP address is saved.
As a result of the anonymization, it is impossible to identify the anonymised user and tracking their
movement on the website does not allow for any conclusions to be drawn about a specific user.
3. Withdrawing your Consent or Request of Deletion
For GDPR; You may withdraw your consent fully or partially at any time by contacting us from
[email protected] from any form on our Website.
For CCPA; You can request the deletion of your personal information by sending an email to
[email protected] or by clicking the “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link and by just
filling the form.
4. Marketing Purposes and Newsletter
From time to time we may contact you with relevant information about our services and products.
Most messages we send will be by email. For some messages, we may use personal data we collect about
you to help us determine the most relevant information to share with you.
We only contact you once you will provide us your name-surname and e-mail address, which will be
deemed as explicit consent to subscribe to our Newsletter.
We use the double opt-in process for our newsletter registration. This means that after your
registration we send an email to the email address specified by you; in this email we request
your confirmation that you desire to be sent the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration
within 24 hours your data is automatically deleted. Furthermore, we also save your used IP addresses
and the times of your registration and confirmation. The purpose of this process is to verify your
registration and to possibly explain any mis-usage of your personal data.
If you do not want to receive Newsletters and other messages from us, you will be able to tell
us by selecting certain boxes on forms we use when we first collect your contact details. You can
change your marketing preferences by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our emails
or sending an e-mail to us.

and administrative access to site data as well as other proprietary security measures which are
applied to all repositories and transfers of user information. We will exercise reasonable care in
providing secure transmission of information between your computer and our servers, but given that
no information transmitted over the Internet can be guaranteed 100% secure, we cannot ensure or
warrant the security of any information transmitted to us over the Internet and hence accept no
liability for any unintentional disclosure.

it for (as set out above), including for the purpose of satisfying and legal, accounting, or reporting
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature,

of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data, and whether we can
achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
9. Your Rights under GDPR and under CCPA
You may have certain rights under GDPR in relation to your personal data. You have the rights to:
Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”).
This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we
are lawfully processing it.
Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any
incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the
accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal
data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to
ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right
to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or
where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that
we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which
will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest
(or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes
you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental
rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal
data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling
legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend
the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish
the accuracy of the personal data; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want
us to erase it; (c) where we no longer need the personal data for the purposes set out above,
but we are required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or (d)
you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding
legitimate grounds to use it.
Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you,
or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable
format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided
consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data.
However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw
your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain features of
the services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
If you wish to exercise any of these rights, you can contact us from our Websites.
