Information We Collect
Information You Provide to Us. “Personal Information” means information that alone or in combination with other information may be used to readily identify, contact, or locate you. The Personal Information we collect will be different depending on your activities on the Communitee Service. For example, to register as a seller on our service, we will collect your name and email address. If you register using a sign-in service or a social media platform such as Facebook, we will collect the information needed to authenticate your account and any other information the platform provides in that process. If you launch a successful campaign, we will collect additional Personal Information as needed to provide you with your funds. If you make a purchase through the Communitee Service, we will collect your name, email address and shipping address.
We may also collect Personal Information you provide about other people, such as their name and physical address (for example, when we ship a gift at your request). This Personal Information is used for the sole purpose of completing your request.
How We Use Your Information
In general, we use Personal Information to provide the Communitee Service to you, including, to establish and administer your account, to fulfill your order and send you an order confirmation, to pay you any funds earned and to respond to customer service requests.
We will retain personal data for the period necessary for the performance of the contract.
If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter(s), we will use your name and email address to send the newsletter to you. You may choose to stop receiving our newsletter or marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails, accessing the email preferences in your account settings page or you can contact us at info@Communitee.co.uk. You may not opt-out of the transactional emails Communitee sends in connection with your use of the Communitee Service (e.g. email notification of individual account activity, such as shipment of an order, or broader account notifications such as changes to Communitee’s policies).
Communitee processes personal information within the UK. Communitee does not store any card details. We use Stripe (PCI Compliant) to process debit and credit card payments, and we do not have access to those details once payment has been processed.
We will not rent, sell or share your Personal Information with third parties and specifically will not share your personal information for their direct marketing purposes without your consent.

We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We have a mandatory requirement to report any data breaches within 72 hours to the regulatory body and provide a mandatory privacy impact assessment.
