Only authorised and audited Squizzl staff can view your personal information once we receive it.
From time to time, Squizzl will invite you to participate in surveys. These surveys are designed to ensure that our products and services remain as relevant to you as possible. Squizzl will always advise if the survey is anonymous or if your participation will be linked to you in any way.
Subscribers may choose to be removed from Squizzl email lists at any time by changing communication preferences in their account settings.
Squizzl will use personal information provided to it for our primary purposes and secondary purposes. By agreeing to this policy, you consent to Squizzl using your personal information for the following:

We may also use your personal information to get a better understanding of your needs.

Upon receiving new products and services for the first time, you will be given the option to opt-in immediately to receive future offerings of the item in question.

SECTION 2 – CONSENT

How do you get my consent?
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
If this privacy policy changes in future in response to changes in legislation, you may be asked to re-consent to your personal details being held.
How do I withdraw my consent?
If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us by one of the methods listed at the end of this Privacy Policy.
Squizzl takes reasonable precautions to ensure that the personal information we collect and use is complete, relevant and up-to-date. However, the accuracy of the personal information we receive depends to a large extent on the information you provide. We recommend you let us know if there are any errors in your personal information by contacting Squizzl.

SECTION 3 – DISCLOSURE

Personal information will not be used for any other purpose without the consent of its provider unless Squizzl is required by law to disclose that information, or if you violate our terms of service. Squizzl may be required to disclose personal information to third parties in order to provide a service that you requested.
Other than in circumstances such as these, Squizzl will not disclose personal information provided, such as name, address, email address or telephone number, to any organisation or person outside Squizzl unless the provider has clearly and directly authorised Squizzl to do so.

SECTION 4 – PAYMENT

Payment is completed using Stripe, then Chargebee stores your credit card data and Xero stores transaction records. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information.

SECTION 5 – SECURITY

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. We encourage you to play an important role in keeping your personal information secure, by maintaining the confidentiality of any passwords and account details used on our websites. It is your sole responsibility to maintain such confidentiality and Squizzl will not be liable for any damage, loss or expense suffered due to such disclosure.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
