As an express condition of your use of and access to the Services, you agree to maintain accurate account information and pay all applicable fees and taxes (the “Service Fees”). RatingScoop may change the Service Fees from time to time and such changes will be effective immediately upon posting on our Website for all orders (including renewals) that occur after the effective date of the Service Fee change.
Failure to pay applicable Service Fees within 7 days will result in suspension of services and termination of account.
The subject matter of the processing is to provide you with the collection, management and publication of client reviews, which includes followup with your clients by email. The personal data (“Review Data”) processed includes: client contact information (such as name, email) provided by you; review information intended for the public domain provided by the client; private additional information to support negative feedback; and security related personal data (such as IP Address) provided automatically.
We will not process Review Data for any other reason without your documented instructions, unless required to do so by law. In such cases, we will inform you before any such processing, unless that law prohibits us on important grounds of public interest.
You agree that submitting your client’s contact information via our secure dashboard or API constitutes your express documented instruction to process their Review Data on web servers based in the USA, and you warrant that you have a) obtained consent or have some other legitimate legal basis for this processing and b) the client is over the age of 18.
We will ensure that persons authorised to process Review Data or access your account have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality.
To maintain the integrity and credibility of Review Data, you expressly agree to submit only the details of bona fide customers. In your capacity as the Data Controller, you also expressly instruct us to take all steps as required to prevent you from editing, deleting or otherwise tampering with the Review Data, so that all words published via our systems are exactly as written by your customers, and the aggregate ratings reflect the true picture of your overall feedback, and you confirm that THIS INSTRUCTION CANNOT BE COUNTERMANDED.
We have made necessary technical and organisational safety measures to protect the Review Data to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, taking into account the factors specified in Article 32 of the GDPR.
At your request – and subject to remuneration of our reasonable costs in advance – we will submit to audits and inspections, provide you with whatever information you need to ensure compliance with Article 28, and assist you in ensuring compliance with your obligations pursuant to Articles 32 to 36 of the GDPR, taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to us.
We will not engage a sub-processor for the Review Data without your prior consent, and will ensure that the data protection obligations set out in Article 28(3) of the GDPR are imposed on any sub-processor.
We will assist you as far as possible (taking into account the nature of the processing) to enable you to fulfill any obligations to respond to requests for the exercise of data subject rights by a data subject under GDPR.
We will give you 30 days from the date your account becomes inactive to download all Review Data. After this time, the data will be irretrievably deleted from our systems.
Term, Termination and Removal
You may cancel your RatingScoop account at any time by giving us notice as prescribed in our Cancellation Policy. Your account will then terminate at the end of the already paid up subscription period.
Once terminated, your access to the Services and all related data will be revoked and all data processing will cease.
All files, information and data under your account will be preserved for 30 days from the date of termination. If the payment to reactivate your account is not received within 30 days, all files, information and data under your account will be deleted.
You agree that we have the right to delete all data, files or other information that is stored in your RatingScoop account if your RatingScoop account is terminated, for any reason, by either you or us and you accept full responsibility for ensuring you have a viable backup of any data you wish to keep before such deletion takes place.
