Privacy Policy

Privacy Statement effective July 2016

This privacy policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us.

We may change this Policy from time to time. If that is the case, we will change the Privacy Statement effective date displayed above.

By using our Web site, our hosted applications or related support services, you are agreeing to the collection and use of personal information in the manner described in this Privacy Statement.

General Information

We collect and process "personal data" as defined in the Data Protection Act 1998 of the United Kingdom (Act) in the course of providing the services and network via the website https://electrolux.skipsolabs.com (Skipso Labs) or our hosted applications or related support services.

Any "sensitive personal data", as defined by the Act, will only be processed with your explicit consent. Examples of sensitive data include information regarding your health or racial or ethnic origin.

Your personal data will only be shared with third parties as is reasonably required for us to provide our service and/or if we are required to do so by law. Our collection processing and storage of personal data is governed by the Act because it occurs primarily in the United Kingdom. However, due to the nature of the Internet such personal data may be accessed globally.

All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers operated by us or our third party providers. We will do our best to protect your personal data and have strict security procedures in place, but we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk.

We use your personal information to better understand your requirements as a user of Skipso Labs. Unless you opt-out, we may occasionally inform you of new features, services and products available on Skipso Labs or new products provided by us.

  • Whenever you choose to participate in a contest or other initiative on our hosted applications you will be asked to enter your contact information (like an e-mail address) or demographic information (like a post code, industry or country). We may use the data we collect from you in these contests to manage the initiative or to send you promotional material about our company or our partners.
