You may be asked to provide personally identifiable information during the sign in process, and then in connection with the use of Total Credit’s products, services and online sites. While Total Credit collects personally identifiable information on a voluntary basis, for certain products and services Total Credit's collection of personally identifiable information may be a requirement for access to the product or service or to process a user's order.

Use of Personally Identifiable Information (PII)

"Personally Identifiable Information" (PII) is used internally by Total Credit to deliver, develop and improve products, content and services, to which users have subscribed, and to answer users' requests. In addition, Total Credit may allow third parties performing services under contract with Total Credit, such as order or payment processors or merchandise warehouse and fulfilment services, located in and outside the European Union, to access and use personally identifiable information, but only to the extent necessary to provide those services.

Total Credit may use PII provided by users to send them information about Total Credit, including news about product updates, contests, events, and other promotional materials, but only if the users agree to receive such communications. Total Credit will not share any PII with third parties for marketing purposes without your consent.

When a Total Credit account is created, Total Credit collects a user's email address and username, and first and last name. Depending on the settings, users agree that some of this information may be searchable and available to other users within Total Credit.

The GDPR requires PII to be processed in a manner that ensures its security. Total Credit's compliance policy ensures that PII is protected against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction and/or damage.

Total Credit has no obligation to keep private PII that a user makes available to other users or the public, nor does it have any obligation keep private PII that a user makes available to other users via Total Credit or other Total Credit software, such as in the community or other public functions. Users should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in public forums. Users should also be aware that information disclosed is public information and may be displayed to other users.

External websites and companies with links to and from Total Credit's online sites and products may collect PII about users when users visit their websites.

Total Credit may release PII to comply with court orders or laws that require us to disclose such information. In the event of a reorganization, sale or merger we may transfer personally identifiable information to the relevant third party with the user's consent if required by law.

Accountability & Governance

The GDPR includes provisions that promote accountability and governance. These complement the GDPR's transparency requirements. While the principles of accountability and transparency have previously been implicit requirements of data protection law, the GDPR's emphasis elevates their significance. Ultimately, these measures should minimise the risk of breaches and uphold the protection of PII.
