Personal Information

Contacting us for general queries. At Seanasol Research your privacy is very important to us. If reach out to us using the contact form on our website we will use any personal information you provide to answer your query. Your details will be saved until the query is resolved, then deleted from our system. Your information is secure with us, we will not disclose it or share with third parties.

Email subscriptions and newsletters. If you subscribe to our content by email, the information that you supply will be collected and stored by our website provider. Seanasol Research will never use your personal information (email address) to contact you directly unless you give us explicit permission.

Public information on our managed sites. You should be aware that any information you provide on our community – including profile information associated with the account you use to post the information – may be read, collected, and used by any member of the public who accesses these websites. Your posts and certain profile information may remain even after you terminate your account. We urge you to consider the sensitivity of any information you input into these Services. To request removal of your information from publicly accessible websites operated by us, please contact us. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to and why.

Public information on connected social media accounts. We have expanded our social networks by using popular media sharing websites such as Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Your personal information is secured, and no details other than those you provide on your personal accounts with these service providers will appear on our social networks. When contacting us via Facebook, we aim to resolve your queries through the Messenger App and we suggest you don’t share your personal details with us there.

Control and access your information. You have the right to request a copy of your information, to object to our use of your information. If you have registered an account on our community, we provide you with tools and account settings to access, correct, delete, or modify the personal data you provided to us and associated with your account. You can request for downloading your account information, including your created content (posts). You also can request correction, deletion, or modification of your personal data.Your request and choices may be limited in certain cases: for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal information about another person, or if you ask to delete information which we or your administrator are permitted by law or have compelling legitimate interests to keep. Where you have asked us to share data with third parties, for example, by installing third-party apps, you will need to contact those third-party service providers directly to have your information deleted or otherwise restricted.

You can request for your account deletion. This will include personal data, profile data, created content, and service logs. Cookies should be deleted from your side. Almost all browsers have an option to delete cookies. Keep in mind that search engines and other third parties may still retain copies of your public information, like your profile information, even after we/you have deleted the information from our community. To delete your account information, please contact us at privacy@seanasol.org. 

Request that we stop using your information. In some cases, you may ask us to stop accessing, storing, using and otherwise processing your information where you believe we don’t have the appropriate rights to do so. For example, if you believe a community account was created for you without your permission or you are no longer an active user, you can request that we delete your account (contact us). Where you gave us consent to use your information for a limited purpose, you can contact us to withdraw that consent, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place at the time. You can also opt-out of our use of your information for marketing purposes by contacting us. When you make such requests, we may need time to investigate and facilitate your request. If there is delay or dispute as to whether we have the right to continue using your information, we will restrict any further use of your information until the request is honored or the dispute is resolved, provided your administrator does not object (where applicable). If you object to information about you being shared with a third-party app, please disable the app or contact your administrator to do so.

 

Opt out of communications. You may opt out of receiving email notifications related to your subscribed forums and posts or promotional communications from us by using the unsubscribe link within each email, updating your subscription settings in My Profile > Subscription page, or by contacting us as provided below to have your contact information removed from our promotional email list or registration database.

Non-personal information. We share or disclose non-personal data, such as aggregated information like the community statistic (online users, visitors, current viewers of a topic, etc…), the number of people who clicked on a particular link (number of topic views) or voted on a poll in a topic (even if only one did).

Law, harm, and public interest. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Privacy Policy or controls we may otherwise offer to you, we may preserve, use, or disclose your personal data if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request; to protect the safety of any person; to protect the safety or integrity of our platform, including to help prevent spam, abuse, or malicious actors on our services, or to explain why we have removed content or accounts from our services; to address fraud, security, or technical issues; or to protect our rights or property or the rights or property of those who use our services. However, nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party’s, including a government’s, request to disclose your personal data.

Links & External Content

Our managed websites. Seanasol Research (seanasol.comseanasol.co.ukseanasol.org, seanasol.space) has a strong partnership with Pressure Ink (pressureink.org) and our posts may regularly contain links to this website. We also own the Readmy Platform (readmy.org), which is our Community Wiki. This Privacy Policy covers access to all the Seanasol Research websites indicated above, the Readmy Platform website and the Pressure Ink website. However, each of our partner websites or subsidies will make their own statements on their Policy and their Privacy, and we advise that you refer to the websites for this information. This is because each site may be running their own APIs and may not reflect the same experience as on this website. For any questions, please use the Resource Portal or contact us directly at info@seanasol.org. The Readmy developer can be contacted (here) and the Pressure Ink webmaster can be contacted (here). 

 

External links to service providers and social accounts. In addition, we frequently link to external websites, such as social media platforms, which are outside of our control and we ask that you familiarise yourself with their privacy policies. We do not accept liability for the policies on websites that we do not manage. See above for notice about sharing with third parties.

External Links to our Collaborative Partners. We link to our trusted network websits on Our Team page. You can find their respective privacy policies by accessing the links below or contacting them directly.

Third-Party Widgets and APIs. Some of our pages may contain widgets and social media features, such as the Facebook “share” or Twitter “tweet” buttons. These widgets and features collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on the Services, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Widgets and social media features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Services. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

Sharing with third-parties

Service Providers. We share information with third parties that help us operate, provide, improve, integrate, customize, support and market our services. We work with third-party service providers to provide website and application development, hosting, maintenance, backup, storage, virtual infrastructure, payment processing, analysis and other services for us, which may require them to access or use information about you. If a service provider needs to access information about you to perform services on our behalf, they do so under close instruction from us, including policies and procedures designed to protect your information. Our administrators may choose to add new functionality or change the behaviour of the community by installing third party apps within the community. Doing so may give third-party apps access to your account and information about you like your name and email address, and any content you choose to use in connection with those apps. Third-party app policies and procedures are not controlled by us, and our privacy policy does not cover how third-party apps use your information. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of third parties before connecting to or using their applications or services to learn more about their privacy and information handling practices. If you object to information about you being shared with these third parties, please let us know as soon as possible.Please note that our websites will be using these tools differently. Check individual sites for their privacy policies. List of Managed Sites include:

Data Security

Storing information online. We use data hosting service providers to host the information we collect, and we use technical measures to secure your data. While we implement safeguards designed to protect your information, no security system is impenetrable and due to the inherent nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that data, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion by others.

Data portability. Data portability is the ability to obtain some of your information in a format you can keep in your devices or share with other communities. Depending on the context, this applies to some of your information, but not to all of your information. Should you request it, we will provide you with an electronic file of your basic account information and the information you create on the spaces you under your sole control, like your topics (only with your posts), your replies in other topics, private messages and conversations (only with your messages).
