My Honesty Box is provided by Honesty Box Online Ltd. For clarity, we'll refer to the product and service provided as My Honesty Box in the following privacy statement.
We collect personally identifiable information ("Personal Data") from you when you voluntarily choose to provide Personal Data. We use the Personal Data that we collect in order to provide and improve our services. Examples of Personal Data we collect include first name, last name, address, email address, telephone number.
In an ongoing effort to better understand our users, we may analyse the Personal Data that is provided to the service in aggregate form. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. We may share this aggregate data with our affiliates, agents and business partners. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
When you interact with us through this website and our app, we receive and store certain additional non- personally-identifiable information. For example, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, browser type and language, referring/exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, cookie information, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time. We only use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often users use parts of the Website or Services so that we can make the Website appealing to as many users as possible, and improve our Services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our users, collectively, use the Website. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their services and the Website, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience.
As an example: we use Google Analytics to collect and review this information. We also use SendGrid for delivery of email. This allows us to better inform and target relevant groups. Currently we have implemented:
Information collected by Google Analytics will only be merged with your personal data only if we get your prior consent to do so.
Google Analytics offers you to opt out of the data collection here. It is also possible to stop this data collection and information sending in your browsers settings.
Our authorised service providers are companies that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include processing credit card payments, providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business and sales analyses, software hosting, supporting the Website functionality, and supporting surveys or other features we offer. These service providers may have access to your Personal Data to the extent necessary to perform their functions, but we do not allow them to share or use any of your Personal Data for any other purpose.
We may release Personal Data when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of our Company, our employees, our users, or others. This includes, without limitation, exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud monitoring, detection, and prevention.
In response to a court order, or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.

On 25 May 2018 a new European privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), came into force. It imposes new rules on companies, government agencies, non-profits, and other organisations which offer goods and services to EU individuals or which collect and analyse their data. The GDPR applies no matter where the data is processed and where the organisation processing data is physically located. It is meant to strengthen users rights in light of fast technological developments and increased globalisation of business operations involving any form of processing personal data.
The GDPR regulates the “processing” of personal data for EU individuals, which includes collection, storage, transfer, or use. The term “personal data” is very broad under new regulation and extends to any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual (a “data subject”).
The GDPR also expands the concept of sensitive data (personal data revealing: racial/ethnic origin, political/religious etc views, trade union membership, health, sex life and sexual orientation, genetic and biometric data). My Honesty Box can assure its users that it does not process any of such sensitive data.
My Honesty Box is committed to comply with EU data protection regulation and provides its EU users with a number of important assurances, such as the following:
