PURPOSES OF PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA
We may process your personal data for a number of different purposes. For each purpose we must have a legal ground for such processing.
Generally such legal grounds are as follows:
■ you have given us explicit consent to the processing of your personal data;
■ processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are the party or in cases you requested us to process your prior to entering into a contract;
■ processing is necessary for compliance with our legal obligation to which we are the subject;
■ processing is necessary in order to protect the your vital interests or of another natural person;
■ processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority laid upon us as controller;
■ processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party.
What do we mean when we say “Legitimate Interest” and “Performance of contract”?
Legitimate Interest shall mean our interest as a business in conducting and managing. We hereby confirm that we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
Performance of contract means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.
We may disclose your personal data if such disclosure is required or permitted by law.
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
If you are resident of the EU please be informed that some of our third parties may be based outside the EU which means that the processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EU.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EU, we ensure that at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
■ we will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission;
■ where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in the EU;
■ where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the EU and the USA.
If there is neither adequacy decision nor appropriate safeguards implemented we still may transfer your personal data out of the EU due to following justifications:
■ we have been informed you about the possible risks of transfers of your personal data and you has explicitly consented to the proposed transfer of your personal data out of the EU;
■ the transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract concluded between you and us. or if you requested us to perform pre-contractual measures;
■ the transfer is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract concluded between us and other natural or legal person for your benefit;
■ the transfer is necessary for important reasons of public interest;
■ the transfer is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
■ the transfer is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or interests of other persons in cases where you are physically or legally incapable of giving consent;
Please feel free to contact us in case if you want to get more information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data outside the EU.

THIRD PARTY LINKS & SERVICES
Please note that Easyblogz makes use of a system called VigLink in order to change links to certain online retailers being displayed on the site to include an affiliate marketing tag. This tag permits those online retailers to know that a user clicking those links has been referred by our site so that we may receive a commission on certain sales. VigLink and other online referral software programs are commonly used across the Internet, though if you have a problem with this practice, we urge you to turn off VigLink.
