This policy applies to the processing of personal data by Emubay.com ("Emubay," "we," or "us"). Emubay is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information while striving to provide the best possible user experience. We aim to make our website safe and enjoyable for everyone. Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2021, the Data Protection Act 2018, and related laws, we have a legal obligation to protect the personal information we collect from you. The GDPR defines "personal data" as any information relating to an identified or identifiable living individual. This may include your name, email address, postal address, or telephone number, or information collected online that is used to identify you.
We have appointed a Data Protection Officer and a Privacy Officer to oversee our data protection and privacy practices. If you have any comments, concerns, or questions, including requests to exercise your legal rights, you may contact our Privacy Officer through the following means:
When you participate in, access, purchase, or register for any of our services, activities, online accounts, or online content (such as magazine subscriptions, newsletters, surveys, vouchers, contests, events, webinars, whitepapers, or community forums), we receive your personal information, which we use to provide these services. This may include data such as your name, email address, postal address, and telephone number. We will use this information to provide you with the specific products and services you are seeking, and will ensure that we have a lawful basis for doing so, depending on the country in which you reside.
If you order products or services from us, you will need to provide certain personal details, including payment information, in order to complete the order. This may be collected as part of the registration process or when creating an account. In some cases, we will use or direct you to contact a third party, who will collect this information from you and fulfill your order. For example, if you order our publications, you may access these products through a digital newsstand such as Apple Newsstand.
If you participate in our events, awards, or conferences, we may receive your personal information, including your name, contact information, and any dietary and accessibility requirements. If you participate remotely in our events, we may share your name and contact information with the platform hosting the event.
We may collect technical and/or behavioral information about your use of our website or other online content, as well asinformation about the device you use to access our services. For example, this information may include details about how you browse our website, as well as detailed information about the device and technology you use to access our website. This may also include unique online identifiers, such as device IDs, device type, IP addresses, and approximate location when browsing, and may be linked to your activity on other websites, allowing us to identify you or your device. We may use this information to build a more detailed profile of you and your interests. We may also provide you with location-based services (such as advertising and other personalized content), which will involve collecting location data for these services.
Our products and services are aimed at a general audience and not children. However, we recognize that some of our publications may appeal to a younger audience, such as our knowledge and gaming product portfolio. In our product portfolio, we have taken active steps to ensure that we comply with all relevant laws and regulations and do not intentionally collect any personal information from children under the age of 16 or send any marketing information to children. In addition, we have a brand called The Week Junior, specifically targeted at a young audience, and we have taken special measures, such as obtaining parental consent, to ensure that we collect and use this data in accordance with applicable laws.
For example, if we are holding a competition that may be of interest to children, our competition rules require parental or guardian consent to participate (if the child is under 18). This also applies to other activities, such as applying to participate in a television program. You must also be 18 years old to purchase products or services from us. If you are under 18 years old, you must ensure that your parents or guardians purchase products or services on your behalf. This also applies to subscribing to The Week Junior.
If we collect personal identity information in the future from children related to our products and services, we will comply with all relevant laws and regulations, including obtaining parental consent where necessary. The Internet provides excellent educational and entertainment resources for children. Your guidance and participation are essential in helping to ensure that children have a safe and beneficial online experience. We encourage you to visit https://www.google.co.uk/intl/en/safetycenter/families/start/ to learn more about ensuring your family's online safety. If you are a parent or guardian and are concerned that we may be processing personal data related to your child, please contact our DPO.
Regardless of when you agree to our use of your personal data, you have the right to change your mind and withdraw that consent at any time.
If we process your personal data based on our legitimate interests, you may request us to stop for reasons related to your individual situation. We must do so unless we believe we have compelling legitimate grounds to continue processing your personal data.

Emubay does not "sell" any of your personal information in exchange for currency. However, under CCPA/CPRA, the term "sell" has a broader meaning than it typically does outside of a legal context. If we "sell" your personal information, you may choose to opt-out. Additionally, if you request us not to "sell" your personal information, we will comply with the "Shine the Light" law of California by ceasing to share the personal information covered by that law with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
