HIGHBROW PRIVACY POLICY

  1. Introduction

    "Company", "we", "us" and "our" means JoinHighbrow Limited and we are committed to protecting your privacy.

    We are registered in the UK and our company registration number is 10389756.

    For the purposes of data protection law, we are a data controller in respect of your personal data (as defined below). That means that we are responsible for ensuring that we use your personal data in compliance with data protection law.

    This privacy policy applies to you if you are a user of Company's services, and a:

    • child;
    • parent or legal guardian of a child ("Parent(s)"); or
    • video content licensor of the Company ("Content Provider(s)"),

    (collectively referred to herein as "Users").

    Please read this Privacy Policy carefully prior to your access to and / or use of the Company Service. "Company Service" means Highbrow or Join Highbrow-branded audio-visual services, channels, features, content and/or applications made available via our website, mobile, and TV applications and any other means, method, technique or device (including third party content platforms) whether now known or hereafter. This therefore includes any and all Company branded applications, services and channels made available via the Company's own or partner (i.e. anyone the Company contracts with to make the Company-branded application or service available) platforms as well as your access to and / or use any of the domains managed by Company (including https://joinhighbrow.com).

    This privacy notice sets out the basis on which any personal data about you that you provide to us, that we create, or that we obtain about you from other sources in connection with the Company Service, will be processed by us. "Personal data" means any information relating to you which we collect and use but does not include aggregate or anonymised information.

    If you do not agree to the use of your personal data as described in this Privacy Policy and to abide by the Company's Terms of Service (the "Terms"), do not register, access or use the Company Service.

  2. INFORMATION WE COLLECT

    We are committed to protecting the privacy of children who use the Company Service. This privacy policy also applies to children's personal data we use and, for the purposes of this privacy policy, we consider a "child" to be any user who is of the age 15 or younger.

    A child's user account will be set up by the Parent and we will not ask for more information in relation to a child than is reasonable, as described under point (a) below.

    We do not knowingly collect or maintain personal data from children without parental consent. If you are 15 years old or younger, then please do not use or access the Company Service at any time or in any manner without your Parent's prior approval and registration. If we learn that personal data of children aged 15 years or younger has been collected without verified parental consent, then we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information and cancel the account.

    We will collect and process the following personal data about you:

    a. Registration Information

    • Information that users provide to us. The Company will collect and process information submitted by Users who are not children for registration purposes, such as your:

      • full name;
      • email address / username;
      • password; and
      • postal code

      (collectively, the "Registration Data");

      We do not collect personal contact information (such as full name, e-mail address, phone number or home address) from children and we generally do not ask for more personal data than is necessary for a child to use the Company Service.

    • Information that users provide to us and that we collect or generate about users. We may also obtain information that you submit, or that we collect, that is not Registration Data but necessary for the proper functioning of our Service, such as:

      • the date regarding the start and end and the extent of your usage of the Company Service;
      • your preferences;
      • your browser;
      • operating system;
      • IP address;
      • clickstream data; and
      • unique device identifiers
      • device information, including brand and model

      (collectively, the "Demographic and Usage Data"). Demographic and Usage Data is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as a specific and identifiable person, we treat it as personal data.

      We will track the following information when children interact with the Company Service:

      • which videos have been viewed, so we may generate progress reports and recommend relevant content;
      • whether videos are viewed, unviewed or partially viewed; and
      • the duration of videos viewed, for personalisation and revenue calculation purposes.

    b. Social Media / Third Party Platforms

    • Information you choose to share. You may also choose to share your activity on other social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter. Please read the privacy policies of those platforms, because your activity published on those platforms will no longer be governed by our Privacy Policy.

      • username;
      • encrypted access credentials; and
      • other information that may be available on or through your account with such third party platform.

    We use and store your personal data in the following ways and for the following purposes:

    • to identify you and to improve and customize the content you see via the Company Service, including but not limited to applying geo-filtering technologies;
    • your personal data may also be aggregated and used by us for market research, project planning, business and operational development and improvement, troubleshooting problems, detecting and protecting against error, fraud or other criminal activity, to enforce the Terms or any applicable rules, for other internal purposes, and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection;

    • where you have provided necessary consents or we are otherwise permitted to do so, to contact you and deliver information to you that, in some cases, is targeted to your interests, such as administrative notices, product offerings, and communications relevant to your use of the Company Service.

    Any personal data or content that you voluntarily disclose on public portions of the Company Service, if applicable (such as discussion boards and public profile pages) may become publicly available and collected and used by others. We are entitled to use your personal data in these ways because:

    • processing is necessary for the performance of a contract we have entered into with you;
    • we have legal and regulatory obligations that we have to discharge;
    • we may need to in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights or for the purpose of legal proceedings;
    • you have provided your consent; or
    • the use of your personal data as described is necessary for our legitimate business interests, as described above.
  5. DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL DATA

    Except as expressly stated in this Privacy Policy, we will not share your personal data with any unrelated third parties without your consent. In addition, the following describes some of the ways that your personal data may be disclosed in the normal course of your use of the Company Service:

    • Profile. We may post certain information as a part of your user profile, which may be viewable by other Users and visitors to the Company Service, including, but not limited to, your username. We will not disclose your age, location, home address, email address, phone number, or full name in connection with your user profile.

    • External Service Providers. There are a number of separate services offered by third parties that may be complementary to your use of the Company Service, including but not limited to Content Providers' external websites and/or social media platforms. If you choose to use these separate services, such as sharing a link to a social media site or clicking on any link that diverts you from the Company Service, then their use of your information on such external website is governed by their privacy policy. Similarly, Content Providers' external websites and/or social media platform may contain links, including links to the Company Service. We do not make any representation or warranty with respect to any external website, its links or terms of service or privacy policies. With your consent, and for your convenience, we may provide some of your personal data to an external service provider offering such services. To prevent our disclosure of your personal data to an external service provider, you can decline such consent or simply not use their services. Because we do not control the privacy practices of these third parties, you should always evaluate third party practices, including reviewing their terms of service and privacy policy, before deciding to use their services.

    • Internal Service Providers. We may use third parties to facilitate or outsource one or more aspects of our business, products and Company Service, including but not limited to payment processing, and, therefore, Company may provide some of your personal data directly to these internal service providers. In some instances, the internal service provider may collect information directly from you. In these cases, you will be notified of the involvement of the internal service provider. If you provide additional information to an internal service provider directly, then their use of your personally identifiable information is governed by their applicable privacy policy.

    We might also disclose your personal data in the following instances:

    • if we sell any of our business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective buyer for due diligence purposes;
    • if we are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by us about you will be disclosed to the third party buyer; and
    • to the extent required or otherwise permitted by law, for example if we are under a duty to disclose your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.
  6. TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL DATA OUTSIDE THE UK / EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA

    The personal data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the UK or European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside of the UK or EEA who work for our affiliates or for one of our suppliers.

    Where we transfer your personal data outside the UK or EEA, we will ensure that it is protected in a manner that is consistent with how your personal data will be protected by us in the UK or EEA. This can be done in a number of ways, for instance:

    • the country that we send the data to might be approved by the UK authorities and / or European Commission; or
    • the recipient might have signed up to a contract based on "model contractual clauses" approved by the UK authorities and / or European Commission, obliging them to protect your personal data.

    In other circumstances the law may permit us to otherwise transfer your personal data outside the UK or EEA. In all cases, however, we will ensure that any transfer of your personal data is compliant with data protection law.

    You can obtain more details of the protection given to your personal data when it is transferred outside the UK or EEA (including a copy of the standard data protection clauses which we have entered into with recipients of your personal data) by contacting us in accordance with the "Contacting us" section below.

  7. RETENTION OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

    How long we hold your personal data for will vary. The retention period will be determined by various criteria including:

    • the purpose for which we are using it – we will need to keep the data for as long as is necessary for that purpose; and
    • legal obligations – laws or regulation may set a minimum period for which we have to keep your personal data.
  8. YOUR RIGHTS

    You have a number of legal rights in relation to the personal data that we hold about you. These rights include:

    • the right to obtain information regarding the processing of your personal data and access to the personal data which we hold about you;

    • in some circumstances, the right to receive some personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and/or request that we transmit those data to a third party where this is technically feasible. Please note that this right only applies to personal data which you have provided to us;
    • the right to request that we rectify your personal data if it is inaccurate or incomplete;
    • the right to request that we erase your personal data in certain circumstances. Please note that there may be circumstances where you ask us to erase your personal data, but we are legally entitled to retain it;
    • the right to object to, and the right to request that we restrict, our processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. Again, there may be circumstances where you object to, or ask us to restrict, our processing of your personal data but we are legally entitled to continue processing your personal data and / or to refuse that request; and
    • the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection regulator (details of which are provided below) if you think that any of your rights have been infringed by us.
