Thank you for using Known2Me. Your privacy is very important to us.

You entrust us with sensitive information and we take that responsibility seriously.

Privacy Policy version 1.0

We wrote this Policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it, and what choices you have when using our website (http://known2me.com) and our mobile app (collectively, "K2M"). If you don't already know, K2M offers phonebook automation and productivity ("Service") that makes keeping your phonebook up-to-date and assists with your privacy controls over your contact data. We use your personal data to provide you with the Service and we explain this in more detail below.

K2M is designed, engineered and marketed by Known2Me Ltd , a registered business in the United Kingdom with number 11103826. Our registered office is at 11 Blackheath Village, London, SE3 9LA, United Kingdom.

At Known2Me Ltd, we are 100% committed to protecting the privacy and security of our customers and website visitors. We completely appreciate and respect how important privacy is. If you have any questions about how we protect your privacy, please drop us a line at support@known2me.com.

For our Service, the data controller - the company that's responsible for your privacy - is Known2Me Ltd.

How we use your information

We use your information in a number of different ways – what we do depends on the information. The app will only share information with those whom you choose to share it with. Known2Me will only be able to see the details you wish us to see.

We also anonymise and aggregate personal data (so that it does not identify you) and use it for purposes including testing our IT systems, research, data analysis, improving our site and app, and developing new products and services.

How we share your information

We do not, and will not, sell any of your personal data to any third party – including your name, address, email address or financial information. We want to earn and maintain your trust, and we believe this is absolutely essential in order do that. However, we share your data with the following categories of people or companies as an essential part of being able to provide K2M to you, as set out in this statement:

We may provide third parties with aggregated but anonymised information and analytics about our customers and, before we do so, we will make sure that it does not identify you. For example, "We have 10 million users in the United Kingdom."

Legal basis for processing in the EU

If you are a resident in the EU, we need to tell you the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information. Please note that we will use the following such legal basis:

Marketing messages

If you said we can, we'll send you marketing messages. Most messages we send will be by the app, and some via email. For some messages, we may use personal data we collect about you to help us determine the most relevant information to share with you. If you do not want to receive such messages from us, you will be able to tell us when we first collect your contact details. You can change your marketing preferences anytime by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our emails.

Service messages

If we need to provide you with information about something, whether for legal, marketing or other business-related purposes, we will select what we believe is the best way to get in contact with you. We will usually do this through email or by placing a notice on K2M. The fact that we may send notices to you will not stop you from being able to opt out of certain types of contact as described in this Policy.

Security

The security of your personal data is important to us. However, please be aware that there are inherent security risks of providing information and dealing online over the internet and we cannot therefore 100% guarantee the security of any data disclosed to K2M.

We implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, change or damage. All personal data we collect will be stored on secure servers. All electronic transaction entered into via K2M will be protected by SSL encryption technology.

Where you register for an account on K2M, you are responsible for maintaining your account's security.

International Transfers of your Personal Data

The personal data we collect via K2M may be transferred to, and processed and stored in, countries outside of the jurisdiction you are in where we and our third-party service providers have operations. If you are located in the EEA, your personal data may be processed outside of the EEA, including, for example, in the United States; these international transfers of your personal data are made (i) to a country or territory ensuring an adequate level of protection for the rights and freedoms of data subjects in relation to the processing of personal data as determined by the European Commission, or (ii) to a the third party that is a member of a compliance scheme recognised as offering adequate protection for the rights and freedoms of data subjects as determined by the European Commission, or (iii) pursuant to appropriate safeguards, such as the Standard Contractual Clauses (processors) approved by European Commission Decision C(2010)593 or any subsequent version thereof released by the European Commission or the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. If you wish to enquire further about these safeguards used, please contact us using the details set out at the end of this Policy.

We retain your personal data indefinitely. However, if you ask us to delete your personal data in line with your rights below, we will remove your personal data from our systems within 30 days of your request.
