1. What information do we collect about you?
You may choose to give us personal information directly in a variety of situations. For example, you may want to give us your name and contact information to communicate with you, to order a product, to process an order, to register for a service, to provide you with a subscription, or to do business with us if you are a supplier or a business partner. You may also provide your bank or credit card details to buy something from us or may share a description of your education and work experience in connection with a job opening at AllTalk for which you wish to be considered. If you tell us that you do not want us to use your information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your request, we will respect your wishes.

The following paragraphs describe in more detail how AllTalk may use your personal information.
2.1. Fulfilling your Request
If you request something from AllTalk, for example, a product or service, a call back, or specific marketing materials, we will use the information you provide to fulfil your request. To help us do this, we may share information with others, for instance, AllTalk's business partners, financial institutions, shipping companies, or postal or government authorities, such as Customs authorities, involved in fulfilment. In connection with a transaction, we may also contact you as part of our customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes.

We may use information we collect about you to provide you with a personalised experience on our websites, such as providing you with content in which you may be interested and making navigation on our sites easier.

We may use your personal information to support products or services you have obtained from us, such as notifying you of a product update or fix.
We also provide “Live Chat” sessions on our websites to assist you while you’re navigating through our sites; we will use personal information you provide via these sessions in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
The information you provide to AllTalk, as well as the information we have collected about you indirectly, may be used by AllTalk for marketing purposes. Before we do so, however, we will offer you the opportunity to choose whether or to have your information used in this way. You may at any time choose not to receive marketing materials from us by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each e-mail you may receive, by indicating so when we call you, or by contacting us directly (please refer to our contact details below).
Some of our offerings may be co-branded, that is sponsored by both AllTalk and third parties. If you sign up for these offerings, be aware that your information may also be collected by and shared with those third parties. We encourage you to familiarise yourself with their privacy policies to gain an understanding of the manner in which they will handle information about you.
In connection with a job application or inquiry, whether advertised on an AllTalk website or otherwise, you may provide us with information about yourself, such as a resume. We may use this information throughout AllTalk in order to address your inquiry or consider you for employment purposes. Unless you tell us not to do so, we may keep the information for future consideration.
2.6. Monitoring or Recording of Calls, Chats and Other Interactions
Certain transactions may involve you calling us or us calling you. They may also involve online chats. Please be aware that it is AllTalk's general practice to monitor and in some cases record such interactions for staff training or quality assurance purposes or to retain evidence of a particular transaction or interaction.
2.7. Mobile Applications and Social Media
AllTalk makes available mobile applications for download from various mobile application marketplaces. AllTalk also provides social media tools on some of its websites to enable online sharing and collaboration among members who have registered to use them. These include forums, wikis, blogs and other social media platforms.
When downloading and using these applications or registering to use these social media tools, you may be asked to provide certain personal information. Registration information will be subject to and protected in accordance with this Privacy Statement, except for the information that is automatically made available to other participants as part of your profile.

2.8. Protect the Rights and Property of AllTalk and Others
We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, or the rights of others, or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our websites.
2.9. Information for Business Partners
If you represent a AllTalk business partner, you may visit AllTalk websites intended specifically for AllTalk business partners. We may use information provided on that site to administer and develop our business relationship with you, the business partner you represent, and AllTalk business partners generally. For instance, this may involve using your information to send you details of AllTalk business partner programs. It may also include sharing certain information with other business partners (subject to any confidentiality obligations that may exist), or AllTalk customers or prospects. In connection with a particular transaction or program, we may also contact you as part of customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes.
2.10. Sharing of Personal Information and International Transfers
AllTalk is a global organisation with business processes, management structures and technical systems that cross borders. As such, we may share information about you within AllTalk and transfer it to countries in the world where we do business in connection with the uses identified above and in accordance with this Privacy Statement. Our Privacy Statement and our practices are designed to provide a globally consistent level of protection for personal information all over the world. This means that even in countries whose laws provide for less protection for your information, AllTalk will still handle your information in the manner described here.
In some cases, AllTalk uses suppliers located in various countries to collect, use, analyse, and otherwise process information on its behalf. It is AllTalk's practice to require such suppliers to handle information in a manner consistent with AllTalk's policies.
From time to time, we may disclose information that identifies you at an individual level and which we collected on our websites to other non-AllTalk entities that are not acting as our suppliers, such as our business partners. Except as described in this Privacy Statement, we will only do so with your prior consent. We do not sell or lease such information however.
Circumstances may arise where, whether for strategic or other business reasons, AllTalk decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganise businesses in some countries. Such a transaction may involve the transfer of personal information to the purchaser. It is AllTalk’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.
When transferring your information outside of the country of collection for the purposes identified above, AllTalk complies with applicable law. For data originating from a European Union member state, AllTalk uses a variety of data transfer mechanisms (including standard contractual clauses) for this purpose.
Please be aware that in certain circumstances, personal information may be subject to disclosure to government agencies pursuant to judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.
3. Information Security and Accuracy
We intend to protect your personal information and to maintain its accuracy. AllTalk implements reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to help us protect your personal information from unauthorised access, use and disclosure. For example, we encrypt certain sensitive personal information such as credit card information when we transmit such information over the Internet. We also require that our suppliers protect such information from unauthorised access, use and disclosure.
We will retain your registration information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to request that we no longer use your registration information to provide you services please contact us at the details below. We will retain and use your registration information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
