Privacy Policity

Privacy Policy


Introduction

turbospezial, (“turbospezial,” “we” or “us”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it.  This Privacy Policy describes how we may collect, use, and share your personal information in connection with providing our “Website”— www.turbospezial.com

—or any other application, product or service that refers to this Policy (collectively, with the Website, the “Services”). This Policy also explains certain rights and choices you may have regarding your personal information.  By using the Services, you consent to the practices described in this Policy, unless further consent is required by applicable law.

Please read this Policy together with any Service-specific statements or notices that we may provide.  Those statements or notices supplement this Policy, and to the extent they differ from this Policy, the statements or notices shall govern.

What data do we collect? 

Generally speaking, your “personal information” or “personal data” includes your unique identifiers (for example, your full name, phone number, or email address); and information about your characteristics, conditions or behaviour that is associated with one of your identifiers or could otherwise reasonably be linked to you. “Non-personal information,” on the other hand, is information that has been anonymised, aggregated or de-identified such that it cannot reasonably be linked to an individual.

How We Share Personal Information With Others

We do not disclose your personal information to others except as follows:

Corporate parents, affiliates and subsidiaries.  We may share your information with our corporate parents, subsidiaries, and other affiliated entities for a variety of purposes, including business, operational and marketing purposes.

Service providers.  We may share your information with our third party service providers that perform certain functions or services on our behalf, such as to host the Services, manage databases, perform analyses, conduct surveys, or send communications and newsletters for us.  Our agreements with those providers require them to limit their use of such personal information to the uses we have authorized and to comply with applicable laws regarding protection of personal information.  The following service providers have asked that we direct you to their privacy policies:

  • Google. We use Google Ads to re-market to visitors to our Websites elsewhere online.  We also use Google Analytics, which helps us evaluate the use of our Websites. 

Mandatory disclosures and legal proceedings.  We may have a legal obligation to disclose personal information to government authorities or other third parties pursuant to a valid regulatory request, subpoena, litigation demand or court order.  We may also need to disclose and otherwise process your personal information in accordance with applicable law to defend our legitimate interests, for example, in civil or criminal legal proceedings.

Mergers, Acquisitions or Reorganization.  If we decide to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize our businesses, this can involve us disclosing personal information to prospective or actual purchasers and their advisers, or to a new affiliate of ours.

Pursuant to your consent.  We may share your personal information with others if we have your consent to do so.

Quality And Retention of Personal Information

We take reasonable steps to keep the personal information we possess accurate and to delete incorrect or unnecessary personal information.  We retain personal information only as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy or otherwise communicated to you, unless a longer period is required by applicable law.  If you have an account with us, we encourage you to access your personal information from time to time to help us ensure that it is up to date.

Data Security

In order to safeguard personal information against unauthorized access or use, we maintain administrative, physical and technical security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information.  We regularly assess the performance and adequacy of those procedures and practices and will adjust them when new operations or risks require it.  Unfortunately, in our increasingly connected digital world, no one can guarantee perfect data security, and we cannot promise that our procedures and practices will always prevent a breach of personal information.  Should we detect such a breach, we will promptly notify affected individuals, third parties and law enforcement agencies as required by applicable law.

We encourage you to help maximize security by applying your own personal security measures.  

Links to Social Media And Other Third Party Services

Our Services may contain links to third-party websites, products or services.  For example, our Websites contain links provided by Facebook, Instagram and other social media platforms.  Information collected by those third parties is governed by their privacy policies, not ours.  We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.

Automated decision making

We do not make any decisions involving the use of algorithms or profiling that significantly affects you.
