Get Lighthouse will enter into a written agreement with such third party requiring that the third party provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by this Privacy Policy or any other applicable Get Lighthouse privacy and data protection commitments. Unless we give you the choice to opt-out and you do not exercise your opt-out right, we do not provide Get Lighthouse’s service providers with any right to use personal data we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us or for a purpose incompatible with the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you. You hereby consent to our sharing of personal data for the above purposes.

    agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Get Lighthouse, our employees, our customers, or others.

Alternatively, we may sell businesses or business units, merge with other entities and/or sell assets or stock, in some cases as part of a reorganization or liquidation in bankruptcy. As part of these transactions, we may transfer your personal information to a successor entity upon a merger,
    consolidation or other corporate reorganization in which we participate, or to a purchaser or acquirer of all or a portion of our assets, bankruptcy included. You will be notified via email and/or a prominent

    password protection and, for certain transmissions to our Services, encryption. We also have internal measures designed to protect personal data. However, due to the open communication nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and the Site and/or App, and the Site and/or App and you, will be free from unauthorized access by third parties.

    We retain personal data for as long as we have a legitimate need to retain it. Generally, we will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with the Services and
    we also may continue to retain backup or archival copies of your information made in the normal course of business.

    Get Lighthouse may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. Use of information we collect now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is collected. If we make changes in the way we use personal data, we will notify you by posting an amendment to the Privacy Policy on the Site and/or App and we will send registered users a notice of the change prior to the change becoming effective.

    Such modifications will become effective on the day they are posted. As such, Get Lighthouse encourages you to frequently review this Privacy Policy for any modifications.

    Will Get Lighthouse Share Any of the Personal Information it Receives?


    Purpose of the Processing and Legal Bases

    Get Lighthouse uses your personal information for a number of different purposes, as explained below. Some are essential for us to provide the Services you use or to fulfill our legal obligations, some
    help us run the Services efficiently and effectively and some enable us to provide you with more relevant and personalized offers and information. In all cases we must have a reason and a legal ground for processing your personal information. Some of the most common legal grounds we rely on are briefly explained below.


    Performance of a Contract

    We may process your personal data for the purposes of a contract to which you are a party, in other words your ability to use the Services. For instance, if you want to purchase a subscription, we need to process your Account Registration Information, Contact Information and Payment Information in order to enable you to do so.

    Legitimate Interests

    We may process personal data where it is necessary for our legitimate business interests, but only to the extent that they are not outweighed by your own interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. We generally rely on legitimate interests to provide and maintain Services that work well and securely, comply with applicable laws, carry out fraud prevention, and generally improve the Services. When we rely on this legal basis, if required, we’ll carry out a legitimate interest assessment to ensure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under applicable data protection laws.



    Get Lighthouse may rely on consent where it is required, such as with respect to certain Device and Usage Information collected via non-essential cookies and similar technologies, if any (other than
    strictly necessary cookies), or when we’re asking you to confirm your marketing preferences. When we rely on consent, you’ll be asked to confirm that you give your permission to Get Lighthouse to process your personal information. Details of the processing, such as why Get Lighthouse would like to process your data, how it will be used and if your personal information will be shared, will be provided at the time of asking you for your consent.


    You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time if you no longer wish to have Get Lighthouse process your personal data by contacting us.


    Legal Obligation

    Get Lighthouse will on occasion be under a legal obligation to obtain and disclose your personal data. Where possible, we will notify you when processing your data due to a legal obligation, however this may not always be possible. For instance, Get Lighthouse may need to provide your data in order to prevent criminal activity or help to detect criminal activity, in which case we may share information with law enforcement. This is done in a safe and secure manner. It’s essential that Get Lighthouse complies with its legal, regulatory and contractual requirements, so if you object to this processing, Get Lighthouse will not be able to provide its Services to you.


    The following table illustrates in more detail how the above legal bases for processing may apply to our primary purposes for processing different types of personal data:


    Staying in Control of Your Information: Your Rights

    If the GDPR applies to you because you are in the EEA, you have certain rights in relation to your personal data:

    • The right to be informed – our obligation to inform you that we process your personal data (and that’s what we’re doing in this Privacy Policy);
    • The right of access – your right to request a copy of the personal data we hold about you (also known as a ‘data subject access request’);
    • The right to rectification – your right to request that we correct personal data about you if it is incomplete or inaccurate (though we generally recommend first making any changes in your settings);
    • The right to erasure (also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’) – under certain circumstances, you may ask us to delete the personal data we have about you (unless it remains necessary for us to continue processing your personal data for a legitimate business need or to comply with a legal obligation as permitted under the GDPR, in which case we will inform you);
    • The right to restrict processing – your right, under certain circumstances, to ask us to suspend our processing of your personal data;
    • The right to data portability – your right to ask us for a copy of your personal data in a common format (for example, a .csv file);
    • The right to object – your right to object to us processing your personal data (for example, if you object to us processing your data for direct marketing); and
    • Rights in relation to automated decision-making and profiling – our obligation to be transparent about any profiling we do, or any automated decision-making.
    • These rights are subject to certain rules around when you can exercise them. If are located in the EEA and wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us.
    • You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights) unless your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request under those circumstances.
    • We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity. This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
    • We will respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated as required by law.
    • If you wish to exercise any of these rights for personal data that you believe may be uploaded by a user of the Services, please contact the controller. We will assist the controller in such situations.
    • In addition, if you no longer wish to receive our marketing/promotional information, we remind you that you may withdraw your consent to direct marketing at any time directly from the unsubscribe link included in each electronic marketing message we send to you. If you do so, we will promptly update our databases, and will take all reasonable steps to meet your request at the earliest possible opportunity, but we may continue to contact you to the extent necessary for the purposes of providing our Services.
    • Finally, you have the right to make a complaint at any time to the supervisory authority for data protection issues in your country of residence. We would, however, appreciate the chance to address your concerns before you approach the supervisory authority, so please contact us directly first.

    If you are a user in the EEA, you may also contact our representative in the European Union: By emailing euGDPR at getlighthouse dot com
