  5. Where We Store Your Personal Data
    The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (EEA). It may also be processed by staff or contractors operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. These staff or contractors may be engaged in the fulfilment of your request and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password that enables you to access the App or certain parts of it, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to or from the App; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect information we process and maintain. For example, we limit access to this information to authorized employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve the App and the Services. Please be aware that, although we endeavour to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches. We may collect and store personal data on your Device using for example application data caches and other technology. Certain Services may include social networking, chat room or forum features. Ensure when using these features that you do not submit any personal data that you do not want to be seen, collected or used by other users.
  6. Your Rights and Managing Your Information
    You have the right to access information that we hold about you. You can exercise this right by submitting a request to privacy@HiUppapp.com. You may also access your personal data by logging into the App and viewing your profile section on the App where such data will be contained. If you would like us to delete your personal data, please contact us at privacy@HiUpapp.com and we will respond in a reasonable time. Please note that some or all of the Submitted Information may be required in order for the App to function properly. You may withdraw consent for us to process your data at any time. You also have the right to request us to amend the information that we have about you and can do so by contacting us at privacy@HiUpapp.com. You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at privacy@HiUpapp.com. You have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority with regards to us processing your data. You have the right to ask us to restrict processing your data in the following situations:

    1. where you contest the accuracy of your data;
    2. where the processing is unlawful and you do not want us to delete your personal data; or
    3. where we no longer need your data for the purposes of processing but you require the data in relation to a legal claim or claims.

    When you exercise this right we may only store the data. We may not further process the data unless you consent or the processing is necessary in relation to a legal claim or to protect the rights of another person or legal person or for reasons of important public interest. We will inform you before the processing restriction is lifted. You can exercise this right at any time by contacting us at privacy@HiUpapp.com. The App may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates (including, but not limited to, websites on which the App or the Services are advertised). If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites and any services that may be accessible through them have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies or for any personal data that may be collected through these websites or services, such as contact and location data. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites or use these services.
