However, certain Information is collected automatically and, if some Information, such as Account details, is not provided, we may be unable to provide the Services.

How We Use Information

User Data will be used by Levell in accordance with our End User’s instructions, including any applicable terms in the Terms and Conditions, and End User’s use of Services functionality, and as required by applicable law. The End User is the controller and Levell is the processor of User Data. The End User may, for example, use the Services to join or remove themselves from an Organisation, accept Roles and configure settings, access, modify, share and remove their User Data and otherwise utilise the Services in accordance with their personal needs.

Levell uses Other Information in furtherance of our legitimate interests in operating our Services, Websites and business.

 

More specifically, Levell uses Other Information:

  • To provide, update, maintain and protect our Services, Websites and business. This includes use of Other Information to support delivery of the Services under the Terms and Conditions, prevent or address service errors, security or technical issues, analyze and monitor usage, trends and other activities or at an End User’s request.

These are marketing messages and we only send marketing messages to End Users who have opted in to receive them.

  • To investigate and help prevent security issues and abuse.

If Information is aggregated or de-identified so it is no longer reasonably associated with an identified or identifiable natural person, Levell may use it for any business purpose. To the extent Information is associated with an identified or identifiable natural person and is protected as personal data under applicable data protection law, it is referred to in this Privacy Policy as “Personal Data.”
