Use and Storage of Information
When you supply any personal information to Jawbreaker.nyc (e.g. for membership and prize draws) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use those data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it (see the notices on particular webpages that let you know why we are requesting the information) and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.
We may use your information to: remember you when you visit our website and track your browsing patterns by using cookies, place your anonymized information into audience segments to identify your interests.
In general, any information you provide to Jawbreaker.nyc will only be used within Jawbreaker.nyc and by its agents and service providers. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to Jawbreaker.nyc, we can use whatever information that is available about you to stop such behavior. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school, e-mail/Internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behavior.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met, or, in the case of Jawbreaker.nyc membership you no longer wish to continue your registration as a Jawbreaker.nyc member. For safety reasons, however, we may store messaging transcript data (including message content, member names, times and dates) arising from the use of Jawbreaker.nyc. Where personal information is held for people who are not yet registered but have taken part in other Jawbreaker.nyc services (e.g. email notifications), that information will be held as long as is necessary to ensure that the service is run smoothly. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
