1. Collection of your personal data

Personal data means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified, including electronic addresses, date of birth and password. It does not include data where the identity has been removed or otherwise made anonymous.

In the course of our business, we collect and process personal data in different ways. We only collect personal data you give us directly and currently this limited to name, email address, password, date of birth, geographic location and photograph. Only the email address and password must be verifiable.

You can choose not to provide us with your personal data. However, in general you need to provide us with certain information about you in order to take advantage of many features of the Websites.  For example, only registered members are able to videos, photographs,  comments, email Overseasinfo.tv content to themselves and others with travel planning content. We also collect personal data for security purposes.

  • Information that you provide us: as described below, we may receive and store any information you enter on our Website or give us in any other way.
  • Information from Other Sources: We also may periodically obtain information about you from affiliated entities, business partners and other independent third-party sources and add it to other information about you. For example, if you visit Overseasinfo.tv by "clicking through" from a site operated by one of our business partners, and you have registered with that partner, then information about you that you have provided to that partner may be shared with us, such as contact information and demographic information. As another example, if you access third party services, such as social media services, through our Websites or before coming to our Websites, we may collect information such as your username and other information made available to us through those services in accordance with the referring third party’s privacy policy. We will work with our existing partners and potential future partners to improve and personalise your use of our Website in accordance with the practices outlined in this Privacy Policy.
  • For ease of use we have allowed users to log in to our Website through their Facebook account and by so doing this may enable Facebook to capture and use information shared with Overseasinfo.tv to personalise your experience on their site.  

2. How we use your personal data

We use the personal data that we collect about you only for specific purposes. This includes, but is not limited to, offer our services to you, to manage your registration and account, including your access to and use of our Website and to publish your, videos, photos, comments and likes, communicate with you about your account or use of our Website and services, to respond to, or follow up on, your comments and questions and otherwise provide customer service, notify you about changes to our terms or privacy policy, measure interest in and improve our Website and services, protect, investigate and deter against fraudulent or illicit activity, unauthorised or illegal activity, administer and protect our business and to resolve disputes or troubleshoot problems.

We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
  • With your consent.
  • Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.

3. With whom we share your personal data

Overeasinfo.tv may share your information with other parties. For example, if we sell or divest our business or any part of it, and your personal data relates to such sold or divested part of our business, or if we merge with another business, we will share your personal data with the new owner of the business or our merger partner, respectively.

Separately, if we are legally obliged to do so, we will share personal data to protect our customers, the site, as well as our company and our rights and property.

This is only your name and photograph, should you add it. Overseasinfo.tv will not share your email address with any other members nor display it any public manner.

Throughout Overseasinfo.tv, all products and services featured are provided by third-party suppliers. Overseasinfo.tv acts only as an independent information point and is not involved in any way with the sale of goods and services provided these. For this reason, there is no need for us to share information with them. 

We also may share your information if we believe, in our sole discretion, that such disclosure is necessary:

  • to comply with legitimate and enforceable court orders or other legal process; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims or as otherwise required by law. In such cases we reserve the right to raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us;
  • to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal or suspected illegal activities; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of Overseasinfo.tv, our customers or others

4. How long we keep your personal data

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 statutory 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.
