2. Data We Collect About You

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which

that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed(anonymous data). We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together as follows:

▪  Identity Data includes first name, last name, username or similar identifier, title, date of birth and gender.

▪  Contact Data includes billing address, delivery address, email address, and telephone numbers.

▪  Transaction Data includes details about payments to and from you and other details of products and services you have purchased from us.

▪  Usage Data includes information about how you use Vimcal, its products, and the Services.

▪  Marketing and Communications Data includes your preferences in receiving marketing from us and our third parties and your communication preferences.

We collect, use, and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data could be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data will not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific feature of Vimcal. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy policy.

Specifically, we do not collect or capture sensitive data such as credit or debit card numbers, personal financial account information, Social Security numbers, passport numbers, driver’s license numbers or similar identifiers, or employment, financial or health information. We hereby disclaims any liability for any such sensitive information that is input into Vimcal by the user.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, any information that is collected by Vimcal is almost entirely stored locally with you and in small part on Company services, primarily because we use Google’s and Microsoft's API as the source of truth. For example, your company information or personal contacts are not stored in our services, but only with you. When you log out from your Device, most of your data is erased.

You have the right to:

▪  Opt-out of marketing emails and other direct marketing.

▪  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:

o  If you want us to establish the data’s accuracy.

o  Where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it.

o  Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

o  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 products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.  You can withdraw your consent, for example ,by turning off GPS location sharing in your Device settings.
