The Smartie Pants Platform is available on the Website. When you create your own account on the Website, we collect personal information, such as your name, your employer’s name, your work address (including your country location), and your email address. Depending on your role on the Platform, we may ask you to voluntarily provide additional information as needed through your account profile as described in the Terms and Conditions related to the services, we provide to you.
We use and hold your personal information for account administration and to deliver benefits to you as a registered user, which is our primary purpose for collection of your information.

WHAT LAWS APPLY TO US?
Data protection principles are designed to ensure that individuals’ personal information is protected throughout the information lifecycle – that is, from the time the information is collected through to its destruction.
To the extent you are entitled under the GDPR and other applicable laws, you can exercise your rights as explained in this Policy by contacting us.
YOUR CORRESPONDENCE WITH US
If you correspond with us by email, the postal service, through the Website or other form of communication, we may retain such correspondence and the information contained in it and use it to respond to your inquiry; to notify you of any updates at the platform and/or in the services; or to keep a record of your complaint, accommodation request, and the like.
PURPOSES FOR COLLECTING, HOLDING, USING AND DISCLOSING PERSONAL INFORMATION
As explained above, Smartie Pants collects, holds, uses and discloses personal information to provide you with the services offered through the Smartie Pants Platform. We use this information to refine our services to better tailor them to your needs and to communicate with you about the services Smartie Pants offers and provides. Most of the time, Smartie Pants uses certain personal information to verify your credentials as a registered user and to help you achieve your goals on the Smartie Pants Platform (e.g. making changes in the waterfalls to reflect the deals which were concluded at the Smartie Pants Platform, etc.).
Since we process your personal information only for account administration and for delivering benefits to you, we do not sell your personal data to third parties.
We may change our business model from time to time. Therefore, in the future we may collect your personal data within the country you are located and then transfer and process it to another area. If we initiate transferring of personal data to countries not deemed adequate as per the applicable data protection law, we will inform you in advance and ensure appropriate safeguards in place, including technical and organisational measures to guarantee the security of your data.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DECLINE TO SHARE CERTAIN PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH US
You can enjoy some of our services without giving us your personal information. Some of the information will still be available even to those who are not registered users. However, your information is necessary so that Smartie Pants can provide you with the services you have indicated to request by registering as a Developer or an Advertising Partner and help you boost revenue, as well as to authenticate you so that we know it is you and not someone else.
