Personally identifiable information may also be referred interchangeably as "PII" or "personal data" or "personal information." For the purposes of this policy, personal information is understood to be any information which is relevant to you (a Natural Person), with which your identity is or can be identified and which includes, for example, your name, email address, IP address (only when we have collected it in conjunction with directly identifying information).

  • any other applicable privacy legislation.

Process or processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on Personal Data, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation, use, disclosure, combination, restriction, or erasure.

Contractual obligations

When you are a subscriber to our newsletters we automatically process your personal information to send you automated transactional emails.

To comply with a legal obligation

These legal obligations require the processing of your personal information. In other cases we may receive a court order or otherwise be legally obliged to process or convey your personal information to third parties.

To protect our interests

We process your personal information to protect the legal interests of us and others. A legal interest exists when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information. Even then it must not be against what is fair to you and your best interests. Examples of such processing are as follows:

In case of a suspected abuse or an attempt to compromise, deteriorate, disrupt or otherwise interfere with of our services we may process personal information to identify the perpetrator and pursue redress. Such steps may for example (not an inclusive list) include contacting the suspected offender or pursuing the matter legally.

In rare occasions we may send you a personal, manual email to address a concern regarding the website or your use of it.

Because you have given your consent

If you have explicitly provided your consent the processing of your personally identifiable information draws its legality upon your explicit consent. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. However, any processing which took place before your consent's withdrawal is not affected.

For marketing

Sometimes we may wish to send you information about services that may be of interest to you. We will only do this if you have consented to receive such information from us. You may opt out at any time by following the instructions at the bottom of any email we send you or contacting us via the contact form on our website.

Who are the recipients of your personal information

The recipients of your personal information are as follows.

Data controller and processor-EnglishEater (Anthony Stuart Burge), PO Box 118, Holbrook NSW 2644, Australia

Data processor- Google, Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Provides analytics and advertising for our site. Only anonymized information is sent to Google, so it is unclear if they should be listed as a data processor or not. To be safe, Google is listed here, but to the best of our knowledge and technical ability we do not send any personally identifiable information to them.

Where is your information stored?

As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you give to us will mostly be stored outside the European Union (“EU”), that is because our server is physically located outside the EU. The data protection and other laws of these countries may not be as comprehensive as those in the European Union − in these instances we will take steps to ensure that a similar level of protection is given to your Personal Information. You hereby consent to the transfer of your Personal Information to countries outside of the European Union.

Your data protection rights

You have the following rights with regards to the personally identifiable information we keep on file for you:

  • Access your personal information. This lets you for example get a copy of the personal data we keep on file for you and confirm that we are processing it legally. You can request a copy of your data through the Data Rights menu item on our site after logging into our site.
  • Request the correction of the personal information we keep on you. This allows you to correct incomplete or inaccurate information we keep on file for you.
  • Ask for the deletion of your personal information (a.k.a. "right to be forgotten"). This lets you request that we delete your personal information when there is no real reason for us to process it. Kindly note that this is impossible for 60 days since your last purchase for taxation reporting reasons.
  • Object to processing your personal information (a.k.a. "right to objection") when we base our processing on protecting our interests bit there is something special in your situation which makes you want to object to the processing for this reason. If you object we will no longer process your personal information unless we can prove pressing legal reasons for the processing which trump your interests, rights and freedoms. Please note that this is largely inapplicable to our business relationship since our processing is done either on a legal basis, your explicit consent or is exempt from the GDPR protections (e.g. keeping an IP log for security reasons).
  • You have the right to object in cases where we process your personal information for reasons of direct marketing. This also includes profiling, to the extent that this is used for direct marketing.
  • Ask the limitation of the processing of your personal information. This allows you to ask us to limit the processing of your personal information, that is to use it only for specific cases, if:
    • they are inaccurate;
    • they have been used illegally but you do not wish us to delete them;
    • they are no longer necessary but you want us to retain them for their use in potential legal demands;
    • you have asked us to stop using your personal information but you are waiting us to confirm if we have legal reasons to use them.
  • Ask for a copy of the personal information pertaining to you in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format, to convey this information to other organizations. You may also request that we directly convey that file to another organization of your choice. This is also known as "data portability right".
  • Withdraw your consent regarding the processing of your personal information at any time. Please note that withdrawal of your consent at any time does not invalidate the legality of the processing based on your consent before that was revoked or withdrawn by you.
  • To exercise any of your rights we kindly ask you to contact us via the contact form on this website.

    According to the law, we will reply to your requests promptly and within 30 business days. If you have not received a reply from us for over three weeks (21 days) please retry contacting us with alternate means; most likely your request never reached us.
