Privacy and Cookie Policy

Global Metrics Advertisers SL (hereinafter, “the Company”, “We”, “Us” and the like) is firmly committed to regulatory compliance and the privacy and protection of personal data. Accordingly, in the present Privacy and Cookie Policy (hereinafter, “this Policy”), the User (hereinafter “the User”, “you”, “your”) of IG Views (hereinafter, “the/our app”) will find all the relevant information to better understand what We do with his/her personal data. If you do not agree with this Policy, please do not access and use our app. 

We may update this Policy according to new legislative or jurisprudential requirements and/or business needs, among others. Any updates or modifications of this Privacy will be considered applicable from the moment of their publication on the app. Therefore, the User is recommended to review this Policy regularly. This Policy will always be available on the app so that the data subjects can consult them at all times. 

What does this Policy apply to?

This Policy applies to the personal data that We collect and process from you as a User of our app and the services offered in it. 

Please bear in mind that in order to access and use our app you must be older than fourteen (14) years of age.

What does personal data mean and which data do We collect and process?

For the purposes of this Policy, "personal data" means all data that identifies you or that could be used to identify you, such as:  

  • the personal data you provided to register on our app (such as the user name and/or email address and password); 

  • the personal data you have posted on your social media profile/s (such as your nickname, profile photo and biography information) that may be processed and included in the “social media activity report” you have requested;

  • information about the use that the User makes of our app (the sections you consult on our app, or the time that you remain on our app by using cookies);

  • information about the location of your device (that is, your IP address.)

In all cases, We only process personal data which is strictly necessary for the fulfillment of the purposes described above. In this sense, if you provide Us with more information than the one expressly required, you consent the processing of it for the informed purpose/s for which you're sending it.

In order to properly provide the services offered in the app, the User must provide Us with accurate, truthful, updated and complete information, being this a reflection of the User’s real circumstances.

If you provide Us with personal data of third parties (adults), you confirm that you have informed them about the purposes for which their personal data will be processed and you guarantee Us that you have obtained their prior and express consent to communicate their personal data to Us. 

In light of the above, the Company will not be held responsible if:

  • The User and/or Customer is under fourteen (14) years of age. In this sense, it is the sole responsibility of the parents and/or legal guardians to exercise adequate control over their minor children’s/wards’ online activity and to prevent their access to apps whose content is not suitable or recommended for minors. Therefore, the communication of a minor's personal data without the prior authorization of their parents/legal guardians is under the exclusive responsibility of the latter. If We become aware that We have collected personal data about a User under the aforementioned age, We will delete that data as soon as it is technically possible.

  • The Company has received an adult’s personal data and/or private information to provide the services offered in the app by a third party who has not requested the adult’s consent to communicate his/her personal data to us. In such case, the Company reserves the right to  inform the interested person of how his/her personal data and/or private information has been collected and, where appropriate, We will ask the individual who provided the personal data to the Company to confirm that he/she requested the consent of the data subject and/or to amend this circumstance, as well as, if appropriate, to suspend the services and/or the User account.

  • For circumstances that are beyond our reasonable control, such as being provided with erroneous, incomplete, and/or fraudulent information from you as a User and/or Customer. You will be solely responsible for the inaccuracy or lack of veracity of the information provided. In this regard, the Company will not be held responsible for the impossibility of providing the Services or for the Services not being correct or complete because the User has not complied with this requirement.

Who is the personal data controller?
