Who we are
We at eliteagency.co.uk (‘we’, ‘Elite Agency’, or the Site) are committed to complying with its obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). As part of this commitment, this statement describes Elite Agency practices regarding the collection, use, transfer, disclosure and other handling and processing of your Personal Data.
Our Pledge to You
Elite Agency pledges that any and all profile content you provide will never be sold, rented, leased or otherwise directly distributed outside of the site’s infrastructure. The only exception would be when required to do so by any applicable law and in instances where directed to do so by Court Order .
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We will collect your Personal Data in order to publish your Profile details in a publicly searchable database accessible via, but not limited to, our Website, App & Social Media Channels. We will also collect your Personal Data in connection with our legitimate interest in maintaining the integrity of the Site and the Services we offer. Where we have collected your Personal Data on the basis that you have given us your consent, you may withdraw your consent to that processing at any time. Personal Data will not be held by us for any longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it was obtained. Personal Data may be retained for the defence of Elite Agency interests should legal challenge arise.
Apart from the above described SEO and tracking practices, we collect only information you voluntarily give us, and we don’t do anything with it other than help you connect with potential partners. All information provided by you as part of your profile and search preference will be accessible and viewable via our Website at https://www.eliteagency.co.uk, via our App & Social Media Channels. We do not however display your personal contact information. You may provide external contact information only via the site’s messaging system.
If you use Elite Agency without registering, only SEO and Cookie information is collected. Your experience with the site will be greatly enhanced by the use of these Cookies, but you can disable their usage at any stage.
If you choose to become a paid member of Elite Agency, you will be transfered to one of our payment gateways. These are major payment processors that securely manage payments. All payment information provided in the payment process will be recorded by the processor and not Elite Agency.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
Who we share your data with
We process your personal information in the European Economic Area (EEA). It may also be processed in the USA, by those who work for us or by one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, amongst other things, the provision of technical and support services.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
