Poplar Technologies Ltd (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates the Breakroom website (the “Site”).
This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of your personal data when you use our Site, visit our website, or otherwise connect with Poplar Technologies Ltd.
The Breakroom survey will ask you about your current job. This helps us compare where you currently work to what it’s like to work at other employers.
We use this data on our website in two ways:
We will not collect any data that will identify you personally unless you choose to enter an email address or create an account. We will never publish information, on our Site or anywhere else, that personally identifies you without your consent.
When someone visits www.breakroom.cc we use third party services, Google Analytics and Amplitude, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the website. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google or Amplitude to make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting the Site.
We use Hotjar to record some web sessions in real-time and play them back, to help us understand how people use our site, to find and fix bugs. Like Google Analytics and Amplitude, this information is processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Hotjar to make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting the Site.
We use a third party provider, Mailchimp, to deliver newsletters. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our newsletter. You can unsubscribe from any newsletter at any time.
By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of personal data in accordance with this policy.
We ask you to provide certain personal data when you sign up to our Site or newsletters. These may include your name and contact information including email and telephone number.
We may also collect certain information automatically, including, but not limited to, the type of device you use, your operating system, the type of Internet browser you use and other statistics.
We use your personal data to provide and improve the Site. This includes administration, responding to communications from you and analysing your use of the Site and gathering feedback to enable us to continually improve the Site and your user experience.
With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes which may include contacting you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. We also use your personal data to include or exclude you from social media marketing campaigns.
You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send or by contacting us using the details below.
We will not sell your personal data to third parties.
We only keep your personal data for as long as we need to in order to use it as described above, and/or for as long as we have your permission to keep it.
It is important to remember that the transmission of information via the internet may not be completely secure and that you are advised to take suitable precautions when transmitting to us information via the internet.
If your personal details change, you may update them by accessing the Site. If you have any questions about how we use information collected which relates to you, please contact us using the contact details provided below.
We use a third party service, Postmark, to send emails.
We also use Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Bing and Google’s advertising platforms, as part of our marketing. They cannot access any personal details you share with Breakroom, but they may be able to see your patterns of use, in order to know if and when to show you adverts.
We may use the services of other companies in relation to our Site but they will have access to your personal data only to perform tasks on our behalf. They will be under a contractual obligation to keep your personal data secret.
We will disclose your personal data where required to do so by law or in accordance with an order of a court of competent jurisdiction, or if we believe that such action is necessary to comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement or to protect the security or integrity of our Site.
Any dispute between us in relation to your data will be governed by English law and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
The General Data Protection Regulation which applies from May 2018 gives you a number of rights in relation to personal data, as follows:
Our Site may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. We use these third party links to support and enhance your experience of the Site.
We do not knowingly collect personal data from anyone under 16. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected personal data from anyone under the age of 16 without verification of parental consent, we will take steps to remove that information from our servers.
This Policy shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales, without regard to its conflict of law provisions and shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please ensure that your query is clear, particularly if it is a request for information about the personal data we hold about you.
