Virtual Owl Marketing ("us", "we", or "our") operates https://www.virtualowl.marketing. This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of our Site.
The information and images contained on this website are, unless otherwise stated, the copyright of Virtual Owl Marketing or sourced from the Wix image library.

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
While using our Site, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to your name, e.g. email address, contact number. Personal Data collected from you will be held in strict accordance with the DPPEC (Data Protection, Privacy and Electronic Communications (Amendments etc) (EU Exit)) Regulations 20219, with effect from 1 January 2021. This amended the DPA 2018 and merged it with the requirements of the EU GDPR to form a new, UK specific data protection regime that works in a UK context after Brexit as part of the DPA 2018.
This new regime is known as the 'UK GDPR'.
We will use your personal information in selected ways for the following purposes:

Our Site is hosted on the Wix.com platform. Wix.com provides us with an online platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data may be stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases, and general Wix.com applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall.
All direct payment gateways offered by Wix.com and used by our company 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 by our store and its service providers.
ACCESS AND CORRECTIONS
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity. If you ask us to stop sending you marketing materials, we will keep a secure record of your contact details and appropriate information to enable us to comply with your request of not to be contacted by us.
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) you have a right to request access to personal data held about you free of charge. This will be sent to you within one month. You also have the right to request any inaccuracies in your information to be corrected free of charge.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives you the right to restrict the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. This means that you can limit the way that an organisation uses your data. This is an alternative to requesting the erasure of your data.
You have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data where you have a particular reason for wanting the restriction. This may be because you have issues with the content of the information held or how we have processed your data.
If you wish to access your data that is processed through Virtual Owl Marketing, please see the ‘Contact Us’ section.
Marketing newsletters and communications can be unsubscribed from on every correspondence you receive from us. You retain control of how we use your data and you have the right to ask us to stop processing your personal information, which we will do.
You have the right to complain to the ICO if you are concerned about how we handle your information.
Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser version, and the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.
In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor, and analyse this.
Cookies are files with small amounts of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your computer's hard drive. Like many sites, we use "cookies" to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Site.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We ensure that there are appropriate technical controls in place to protect your personal details. For example, we use encryption technology on our websites and carry out regular security reviews on our network.
On these websites we hold no personal details as these are stored, with client consent, in our CRM and other GDPR compliant software applications.
We do not sell your personal data to third parties, nor will we provide your personal data to third parties, unless obligated by law, for instance in case of a lawful request by law enforcement authorities.
