This Site is not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children.
We act as both a Data Controller and Data Processor
We collect and use personal data from anyone who uses the Site and/or our service (including Blueskyers).
In respect of the data that we need to collect from you in order to provide our service, we act as a Data Controller for the purposes of the UK’s laws on data protection. This means that we make independent decisions about how that data is processed in order to provide our services to you. More detail about the types of information we collect in our capacity as Data Controller are set out at below.
Once you have become a Blueskyer, and where you choose to submit any post or communicate with any other Blueskyer, you will be in control of this information (the “Posted Information”) and we will simply act as a platform to enable this. We will only hold and use this Posted Information for that specific purpose and you can choose to delete it at any time. In accordance with the UK data protection laws, this makes us a Data Processor of this type of information and we will ensure that we comply with all relevant obligations in that regard.
If you have any questions about this notice or you wish to exercise any of your legal rights in respect of the personal data that we hold about you, please contact us using the details set out below:

You have the right to make a complaint about us to the Information Commissioner’s Office (the “ICO”) which is the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk). However, we would appreciate the opportunity to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO, so please do contact us in the first instance and we will do our best to address your concerns.

Sharing your personal information
We do not sell, trade or otherwise provide your personal information to others. You may choose to share your personal information with other Blueskyers, for example if you contact another Blueskyer to make or respond to an enquiry about an item that has been posted on the Site.
As most companies do, we use third party service providers to assist us in operating our business and to offer IT and other support services. As you would expect, these services include, but are not limited to, analytical data collection and IT provision and support, such as those services provided by Microsoft, Mailchimp, Linux and GoDaddy. We may share your information with these third parties only so that we can operate our service to you.
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law.
We do not allow our service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
International transfers of your personal data
Where our service providers are based outside the UK or the European Economic Area, we ensure that any transfer of personal data to them is done in accordance with current UK data protection laws so that you have the comfort that your data will be protected even outside the UK/EEA. Should you have any specific questions about this, please do let us know.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances, you can ask us to delete your data: see below for further information.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
