  1. Your Rights and Control Mechanisms

You have the right to:

(a) check whether we hold personal data about you;

(b) access any personal data we hold about you; 

(c) require us to correct any inaccuracy or error in any personal data we hold about you;

(d) request for the deletion of your personal data through the deletion of the user account.

The data protection laws of the European Economic Area and other territories grant their citizens certain rights in relation to their Personal Data. While other jurisdictions may provide fewer statutory rights to their citizens, we make the tools designed to exercise such rights available to our customers worldwide.

As a resident of the European Economic Area you have the following rights in relation to your Personal Data:

6.1 Right of Access

You have the right to access your Personal Data that we hold about you, i.e. the right to require free of charge (i) information whether your Personal Data is retained, (ii) access to and/or (iii) duplicates of the Personal Data retained. You can use the right to access your Personal Data through the Privacy Dashboard. If the request affects the rights and freedoms of others or is manifestly unfounded or excessive, we reserve the right to charge a reasonable fee (taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or communication or taking the action requested) or refuse to act on the request.

6.2 Right to Rectification

If we process your Personal Data, we shall endeavour to ensure by implementing suitable measures that your Personal Data is accurate and up-to-date for the purposes for which it was collected. If your Personal Data is inaccurate or incomplete, you can change the information you provided via the Privacy Dashboard.

6.3. Right to Erasure

You have the right to obtain deletion by us of Personal Data concerning you by deleting your User Account via the support page.

As a result of deleting your User Account, you will lose access to services, including the User Account, Subscriptions and service-related information linked to the User Account and the possibility to access other services you are using the User Account for.

We allow you to restore your User Account during a grace period of 30 (thirty) days from the moment you request deletion of your User Account. This functionality allows you not to lose your account by mistake, because of your loss of your account credentials or due to hacking. During the suspension period, we will be able to finalize financial and other activities that you may have initiated before sending the User Account deletion request. After the grace period, Personal Data associated with your account will be deleted subject to section 4. above.

In some cases, deletion of your User Account, and therefore Personal Data deletion, is complicated. In some cases, considering the complexity and number of the requests, the period for Personal Data erasure may be extended, but for no longer than two further months.

6.4 Right to Object

When our processing of your Personal Data is based on legitimate interests according to Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR / section 2.c) of this Privacy Policy, you have the right to object to this processing. If you object we will no longer process your Personal Data unless there are compelling and prevailing legitimate grounds for the processing as described in Article 21 of the GDPR; in particular if the data is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

You also have the right to lodge a complaint at a supervisory authority.

  1. Children

The minimum age to create a User Account is 18. the Company will not knowingly collect Personal Data from children under this age. Insofar as certain countries apply a higher age of consent for the collection of Personal Data, the Company requires parental consent before a User Account can be created and Personal Data associated with it collected. The Company encourages parents to instruct their children to never give out personal information when online.

  1. Contact Info

You can contact the Company’s data protection officer at the address below.

While we review any request sent by mail, please be aware that to combat fraud, harassment and identity theft, the only way to access, rectify or delete your data is through logging in with your User Account at www.islandhostgroup.com/secure/supporttickets.php.

Attention: Privacy Officer

  1. Revision Date

This privacy policy was last updated on 27 December 2021 (“Revision Date“). If you were a user before the Revision Date, it replaces the existing Privacy Policy. The Company reserves the right to change this policy at any time by notifying the users of the existence of a new privacy statement. This policy is not intended to and does not create any contractual or legal rights in or behalf of any party.

You can request a refund for nearly any unused service / purchase. www.islandhostgroup.com will, upon request via www.islandhostgroup.com/secure/supporttickets.php, issue a refund for any reason, if the request is made within 30 days of purchase, and the service / product has not been used. There are more details below, but even if you fall outside of the refund rules we’ve described, you can ask for a refund anyway and we will take a look.

You will be issued a full refund of your purchase within a week of approval. You will receive the refund through the same payment method you used to make the purchase. If for any reason, www.islandhostgroup.com is unable to issue a refund via your initial payment method, we will provide the value in equivalent credit or provide an alternate method of refund. (Some payment methods available in your jurisdiction may not support refunding a purchase back to the original payment method.)

Where Refunds Apply

Our refund offer, within 30 days of purchase and has not been used, applies to products and services on our website. 

 

EU Right of Withdrawal Services

European law principally provides a right of withdrawal on software sales. However, it can be and typically is excluded for boxed software that has been opened and for digitally provided content once it has been made available to the end user. This is what happens when you make a transaction: The EU statutory right of withdrawal ends the moment the content and services are added to your account.

For any EU consumer:

You have the right to withdraw from any purchase of unused product / service on www.islandhostgroup.com within 14 days without giving any reason.

For any purchase products, the withdrawal period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the goods (“Hardware Return Period”). For any transaction related to digital content, the withdrawal period will end when the content is made available to you with your prior express consent and acknowledgement that you lose your right of withdrawal.

To exercise the right of withdrawal, you must inform us of your decision to withdraw from the purchase contract by an unequivocal statement. The easiest way to do so is by informing our customer support through www.islandhostgroup.com/secure/supporttickets.php. If you do so, we will

communicate to you an acknowledgement of receipt of such a withdrawal on a durable medium (e.g. by e-mail) without delay. To meet the withdrawal deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired.

Effects of withdrawal

If you withdraw from an agreement, we shall reimburse you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (with the exception of the supplementary costs resulting from your choice of a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us), without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which we are informed about your decision to withdraw from this contract. We will carry out such reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.

You shall send back the goods to our returns warehouse without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your withdrawal from this contract to us. The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of 14 days has expired. You will have to bear the direct cost of returning the goods. You are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics, and functioning of the goods. If the product you wish to return was bundled with a Subscription, the Subscription is automatically cancelled with your return of the product.

Abuse

Refunds are designed to remove the risk from purchasing products or services — not as a way to get free products and services. If it appears to us that you are abusing refunds, we may stop offering them to you. We do not consider it abuse to request a refund on a title that was purchased just before a sale and then immediately rebuying that title for the sale price.

How to Request a Refund

You can request a refund or get other assistance with your purchases at www.islandhostgroup.com/secure/supporttickets.php
