3.  Triyit Services

(a)       We partner with a number of products and brands who are keen to have your feedback and support.

Users may browse products on our platform which may be relevant to the profile information they submitted. When a physical campaign pops up that matches your Profile, a Triyit Box of campaign products will be delivered straight to your home for free. In the event that the number of matching profiles exceeds the number of Triyit Boxes available, priority may be given to Club Members with the most rewards/stars earned. The remainder will be allocated by ballot (Services).

(b)       Our product discovery club is free for you to register and use. In return for receiving a Triyit box, we ask that you complete a feedback survey telling us what you thought about the products and/or service offers you received.  Completing the feedback survey maintains your eligibility for future campaigns.

The time limit for completing a feedback survey will be different for each campaign. It is for our Members to be aware of the time limits in which they need to provide feedback for that campaign. Any Member who does not provide feedback within the designated time limit tfor a campaign will have their membership with Triyit terminated immediately on the date following the deadline date.

(d)     For each campaign, we will only be able to offer products to those Members who match with all the Profile criteria that our Brand Partner is looking for.  

(e)     We offer free shipping anywhere within the mainland UK but are unfortunately not able to offer our Services to those living on the Islands, remote locations or internationally outside of the UK and Northern Ireland.

10.  OTHER GENERAL INFORMATION

Any information that you voluntarily disclose for public posting to the Service becomes available to the public and may be seen or collected by other persons, including third parties that may not adhere to the standards set forth in this Privacy Policy. Do not submit information, comments, or other content that you want to keep strictly private. We are not responsible for events arising from the distribution of any information you choose to publicly post or share through our Service.

Please note we may retain server/backup copies of all such data, and that we may decline to process change or deletion requests that we deem to be unreasonable, or require disproportionate technical effort, or jeopardise the privacy of others.

(c) Compliance with Laws, Legal Process and Authorities

We may disclose Personal Information or other information about you to government or law enforcement officials, in connection with court orders or  judicial process, to protect the property and rights of us or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical or legally actionable.

We reserve the right to transfer or otherwise disclose your Personal Information in connection with a merger, acquisition, or other change in control, joint venture, reorganisation or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy or liquidation proceeding.

(e) Data Transfers

Triyit processes Personal Information via 3rd party service providers. Your Personal Information may be transferred to, and used by, entities located outside of your country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. Such export is a requirement of providing your information to Triyit, and you consent to such transfer and use in all respects.

(f)  Our Policy Toward Children

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under 18 and do not target our online services to anyone under 18. If we discover that someone under the age of 18 has provided Personal Information we will delete such information from our Site and server. We encourage parental controls to prevent children from submitting information or data on our Site.

 

11.   HOW CAN YOU ACCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.

All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Part 1. To make this as easy as possible for you, a Subject Access Request Form is available for you to use. You do not have to use this form, but it is the easiest way to tell us everything we need to know to respond to your request as quickly as possible.

There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.

We will respond to your subject access request within 28 days and, in any case, not more than one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.

12. RIGHT TO RECTIFICATION

In accordance with the rights indicated in Part 2, you have the right to request that any of your Personal Information which we hold and which is or has become inaccurate, be changed to reflect your correct information. To make such a request, write to us at the address in Part 1, or email us at the email address in Part 15 with the details of your request.

 

13.  SECURITY IS IMPORTANT TO US

We strive to protect your Personal Information and privacy. We employ security measures to protect your Personal Information from unauthorised access and disclosure. Our service providers use secure sockets layer ("SSL") technology. An SSL certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates the identity of a website and encrypts information sent to the server. Encryption is the process of scrambling data into an undecipherable format that can only be returned to a readable format with the proper decryption key. Please be advised that we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, unauthorised access by third parties or inadvertent disclosure of your Personal Information.

 

14. USE OF COOKIES

We and our third-party service providers may automatically collect Non-Identifying Information using various methods, including, without limitation, cookies. A cookie is a small data file transferred to your computer (or other device) when it is used to access our Service. Cookies may be used for many purposes, including to enable certain features of our Service, to better understand how you interact with our Service and to monitor  aggregate usage by visitors and online traffic routing. You may be able to instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the online services you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of our online services or all functionality of our online services.

Non-Identifying Information may be provided to third parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. For example, we may share aggregated demographic about our members without disclosing Personal Information except as described in this Privacy Policy.
