Pressburst Privacy Policy

    We take our privacy obligations very seriously. The purpose of this document is to outline the type of information Chapel Studios holds and how we use any information provided to us.

    Pressburst is an online software application owned and operated by Chapel Studios Communications Ltd, a company incorporated and registered in England and Wales with company number 05867814 and whose principal place of business is at One St Aldates, Oxford, OX1 1DE ("Chapel Studios").

    Pressburst is a publishing and communications platform for publicising news, jobs and events. By using Pressburst, you agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy which forms part of our Terms and Conditions. Capitalised terms used in this Privacy Policy are defined in clause 16 of our Terms and Conditions.

  1. YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
    In order to provide the Pressburst service, Chapel Studios requires your name, email address and basic contact details. We collect this when you register for the service, or if you contact us for technical support, or if a colleague adds you as a secondary user to the service. We require this information in order to provide you with access to the Pressburst system, to provide technical support, and to manage your account.

  2. INFORMATION FROM OTHERS
    You are able to invite other people to use the Pressburst service. By doing so, you warrant that that you have their permission and that Chapel Studios may use any information you provide on their behalf in order to provide them with the Pressburst service, in accordance with our Terms and Conditions and this Privacy Policy.
     
    As part of your usage of Pressburst, you are able to upload news, jobs and events information which may contain personal details, including names and photographs of other individuals. As outlined in our Terms and Conditions, it is your responsibility to ensure that you are legally permitted under data protection law to upload any personal data to Pressburst (including data relating to children) and have sought all necessary licences, consents and permissions, in accordance with the Pressburst Terms and Conditions and this Privacy Policy.
     
    When you upload information to Pressburst, you do so as an Authorised User on behalf of the Customer (who is normally your employer organisation). Data you upload, such as news stories, job vacancies, events, press releases and press contacts, can be viewed, edited and deleted by other Authorised Users in your organisation. As outlined in 6.1 of the Terms and Conditions, the Customer shall be responsible for any Authorised User's acts or omissions in connection with the Services.

  3. WHAT WE COLLECT
    When you use Pressburst to upload or manage content, we collect standard internet log information (including the type of web browser being used to access Pressburst and the operating system) along with geo-location, as we – through our subprocessors – collect and process the IP address of all devices which use our services. We do this in order to be able to provide technical support and to perform analysis on the use of Pressburst in order to compile aggregated statistics. Some aspects of your use of Pressburst will be linked to your login ID which enable us to provide support and identify errors with the system. We also do this in order to identify Authorised Users whom we may contact to recommend further use of - or ways to improve use of - the Pressburst service.
     
    When you publish content from Pressburst we also collect data on how often it is viewed on Pressburst and/or our Channel Partner websites and/or via our widgets, portals and API. This data collection enables us to monitor usage patterns, improve the service and provide technical support.
