Any information that you provide to us through your use of the Services is controlled jointly by the Lawi platform, and its fellow platforms.

The Lawi platform in Europe, Lawi platform in the US, Lawi platform in Asia, Lawi platform in UK and other countries are together “Lawi platform” or “we” for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

We may combine your information with information lawfully obtained from other third party sources and use it for the above purposes.
We will not sell or rent your personal information to any third party without your express consent.

We may share this information with carefully selected and trusted third parties, including other Lawi platform group companies and technical and other service providers to us.

If you are a Buyer and engage in a transaction with a third party Merchant your email address, postal address and contact information may be shared with the Merchant for the purpose of completing the transaction. You will also receive transactional emails from the Merchant confirming the order, including dispatch or eventual refund, and follow-up invitations to leave feedback for the Merchant.

During any contact with Merchants, we strongly encourage Buyers to ask questions before you disclose personal information which the Merchant may not have obtained during the process of the order. Merchants are prohibited from asking a buyer for their payment card details, bank details or other payment method details. If Merchants and Buyers share information directly, that information is not governed by this Privacy Policy.

If lawfully requested, we may also share information with law enforcement agencies and/or third parties in respect of information requests for criminal investigations and alleged illegal activities.

Your information may also be transferred to another company in the event of sale of the whole or part of our business to a third party.

We ensure that all business/technical partners, Merchants and relevant third parties are bound by contractually binding promises to process information we share with them in accordance with our directions, this Privacy Policy and all applicable data protection laws.

Your personal information may be transferred outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to countries which may not have equivalent protections for your data as your country of residence. If we transfer data outside of the EEA, we will endeavour to ensure that your rights and freedoms in respect of the processing of your personal data are adequately and appropriately protected.

When you set up your Account you will be given an opportunity to set your communication preferences. You can also click ‘Unsubscribe’ at the bottom of our marketing emails to stop receiving them. Each time you make a purchase from a Merchant you will also have the opportunity to select the communications you want to receive from that Merchant.

Some of our Services may be offered by us as mobile applications, and you may also be able to access some of our Services using a mobile device through a mobile optimized website, or otherwise. This Privacy Policy applies to all such mobile access and use of mobile devices. When you access some of our Services using a mobile device or download any of our mobile applications, with your consent, we may receive information such as geo-location information and information unique to your mobile device. Please be reminded that most mobile devices allow you to control or disable location services in the device’s settings menu. We recommend that you contact your mobile service carrier or the manufacturer of your mobile device if you have any questions about how to disable your device’s location services.

Please note that we do provide links to other services, which may not be governed by this Privacy Policy. You should view the respective privacy policies of those services for further information.

You have the right to access your personal information that we hold by accessing your Account and, if necessary, have it amended or deleted. Some information, such as that displayed in a customer review or within Merchant feedback cannot be removed by you once given.

If you close your Account, we will retain personal information from closed Accounts in order to comply with our obligations under applicable laws, collect any fees owed and to assist with any investigations we may need to perform.

Please see our Cookies Notice for information on how we use cookies.

We may occasionally amend this Privacy Policy to account for changes to our Service and the way we handle your information. If this Privacy Policy is amended we will give you reasonable notice. Changes will apply from the point of time notified to you.
