If you have chosen to connect your Dancer’s Life Account to a third-party application, like Facebook or Google, you can change your settings and remove permission for the app by changing your Account settings.
You have the right to ask us to correct inaccurate or incomplete personal information concerning you (and which you cannot update yourself within your Dancer’s Life Account).
In some jurisdictions, applicable law may entitle you to request copies of your personal information held by us that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format and/or request us to transmit this information to another service provider (where technically feasible).
We generally retain your personal information for as long as is necessary for the performance of the contract between you and us and to comply with our legal obligations. If you no longer want us to use your information to provide the Dancer’s Life Platform to you, you can request that we erase your personal information and close your Dancer’s Life Account. Please note that if you request the erasure of your personal information:
· We may retain some of your personal information as necessary for our legitimate business interests, such as fraud detection and prevention and enhancing safety. For example, if we suspend a Dancer’s Life Account for fraud or safety reasons, we may retain certain information from that Dancer’s Life Account to prevent that Member from opening a new Dancer’s Life Account in the future.
· We may retain and use your personal information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations. For example, Dancer’s Life may keep some of your information for tax, legal reporting and auditing obligations.
· Information you have shared with others may continue to be publicly visible on the Dancer’s Life Platform, even after your Dancer’s Life Account is cancelled. However, attribution of such information to you will be removed. Additionally, some copies of your information (e.g., log records) may remain in our database, but are disassociated from personal identifiers.
· Because we maintain the Dancer’s Life Platform to protect from accidental or malicious loss and destruction, residual copies of your personal information may not be removed from our backup systems for a limited period of time.
Where you have provided your consent to the processing of your personal information by Dancer’s Life you may withdraw your consent at any time by changing your Account settings or by sending a communication to Dancer’s Life specifying which consent you are withdrawing. Please note that the withdrawal of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of any processing activities based on such consent before its withdrawal.
In some jurisdictions, applicable law may entitle you to require Dancer’s Life not to process your personal information for certain specific purposes (including profiling) where such processing is based on legitimate interest. If you object to such processing Dancer’s Life will no longer process your personal information for these purposes unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for such processing or such processing is required for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. Users may object to such processing by providing a ground related to their particular situation to justify the objection. Users must know that, however, should their Personal Data be processed for direct marketing purposes, they can object to that processing at any time without providing any justification. To learn, whether Dancer’s Life is processing Personal Data for direct marketing purposes, Users may refer to the relevant sections of this document.
Dancer’s Life may process Personal Data relating to Users if one of the following applies:
· Users have given their consent for one or more specific purposes. Note: Under some legislations the Owner may be allowed to process Personal Data until the User objects to such processing (“opt-out”), without having to rely on consent or any other of the following legal bases. This, however, does not apply, whenever the processing of Personal Data is subject to European data protection law;
· provision of Data is necessary for the performance of an agreement with the User and/or for any pre-contractual obligations thereof;
· processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the Owner is subject;
· processing is related to a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the Owner;
· processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the Owner or by a third party.
In any case, Dancer’s Life will gladly help to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, and in particular whether the provision of Personal Data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.
EU data protection law makes a distinction between organisations that process Personal Data for their own purposes (known as "data controllers") and organisations that process personal data on behalf of other organisations (known as "data processors"). If you have a question or complaint about how your Personal Data is handled, these should always be directed to the relevant data controller since they are the ones with primary responsibility for your Personal Data. Dancer’s Life may act as either a data controller or a data processor in respect of your Personal Data, depending on the circumstances.
For example, if you create an Organizer, Teacher or Dance school account with us to sell Services and products, Dancer’s Life will be a data controller in respect of the Personal Data that you provide as part of your account. We will also be a data controller of the Personal Data that we have obtained about the use of Dancer’s Life Platform, which could relate to any User. We use this to conduct research and analysis to help better understand and serve Users of the Services as well as to improve Dancer’s Life Platform and provide you with more targeted recommendations about events we think may be of interest to you.
However, if you register for an event as an Attendee, we will process your Personal Data to help administer that event on behalf of the Organizer, Teacher or Dance school (for example, sending confirmation, promotional and feedback emails, processing payments, etc.) and to help the Organizer, Teacher or Dance school target, and understand the success of, their event and event planning (for example, providing event reports, using analytics to gain insights into the effectiveness of various sales channels, etc.). In these circumstances, Dancer’s life merely provides the "tools" for Organizer, Teacher or Dance school; Dancer’s life does not decide what Personal Data to request on registration forms, nor is it responsible for the continued accuracy of any Personal Data provided. Any questions that you may have relating to your Personal Data and your rights under data protection law should therefore be directed to the Organizer, Teahcer or Dance school as the data controller, not to Dancer’s life.
We do not specifically market to children and young adults under 18. When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 1u, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control.
Dancer’s Life cooperates with government and law enforcement officials to enforce and comply with the law. We may therefore disclose personal information, usage data, message data, and any other information about User, if we deem that it is reasonably necessary:
(i.) to comply with our legal obligations and satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process (such as a subpoena or court order), or enforceable governmental request and to respond to claims asserted against Dancer’s Life;
(ii.) to enforce and administer our Terms of Service, the Payment terms or other agreements with Members, including investigation of potential violations thereof;
(iii.) to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues and to respond to verified requests relating to a criminal investigation or alleged or suspected illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you, or any other of our users to legal liability;
(iv.) to protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Dancer’s Life, its employees, its users or the public, as required or permitted by law.
These disclosures may be necessary to comply with our legal obligations, for the protection of your or another person's vital interests or for the purposes of our or a third party’s legitimate interest in keeping the Dancer’s Life Platform secure, preventing harm or crime, enforcing or defending legal rights, or preventing damage. The User's Personal Data may be used for legal purposes by the Owner in Court or in the stages leading to possible legal action arising from improper use of Dancer’s Life Platform. The User declares to be aware that Dancer’s Life may be required to reveal personal data upon request of public authorities.
Where appropriate, we may notify Users about legal requests unless:
(i) providing notice is prohibited by the legal process itself, by court order we receive, or by applicable law,
(ii) we believe that providing notice would be futile, ineffective, create a risk of injury or bodily harm to an individual or group, or create or increase a risk of fraud upon Dancer’s Life’s property, its Users and the Dancer’s Life Platform.
In instances where we comply with legal requests without notice for these reasons, we will attempt to notify that User about the request after the fact where appropriate and where we determine in good faith that we are no longer prevented from doing so.
Caution of your Own Data Safekeeping. Carefully protect your personal information that you submit on Dancer’s Life — including your passwords, usernames, location, images, and videos — so that third parties can’t manipulate your accounts or assume your identities. Do not disclose any sensitive information in the public domain. You as the User are responsible for maintaining the security of your account's information, such as your password. You are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your account, including, without limitation, all actions by sub-users of your account. You are responsible for logging out of Dancer's life fully after each session. In the event of a breach of account security, you are obligated to immediately notify Dancer's life. Dancer's life is not responsible for any loss, damage, or other liability arising from any unauthorized use of your account or through your failure to adhere to this section. In the event of any dispute between two or more parties as to account ownership, you agree that Dancer's life shall be the sole arbiter of such dispute in its sole discretion and that Dancer's life's decision (which may include termination or suspension of any account subject to dispute) shall be final and binding on all parties.
If you contact us via email, your details and a history of the communication will be stored by us in order for us to deal with enquiries adequately and improve our customer support services. Users contacting Dancer’s Life and/or its owners do so at their own discretion and provide any such personal details requested at their own risk. Your personal information is kept private and stored securely until a time it is no longer required or has no use.
