This website, including all sub-domains, is owned and operated by Age A.G. (UK) Ltd, either directly or through one of its subsidiaries ("us", "we", "AgeGroup "or "Company"). We respect the privacy of our users (each, "you" or "user") and are committed to protecting the privacy of users who access, visit, use or engage with our website(s), available at: https://www.agetimes.com (the "Services").
What type of information do we collect?
We collect two types of data from you: Personal Information ("Personal Information") and non-Personal Information. Personal Information means any information which may potentially allow your identification with reasonable means (for example, email address or name). Non-Personal Information, by contrast, can be defined as any information that does not relate to an identified or identifiable natural person. This may include, for example, your aggregated usage information and technical information transmitted by your device (e.g. the device you use, the type of browser and operating system your device uses, language preference, access time, etc.), and in order to enhance the functionality of the Services. We may also collect information about your activity on the Services (e.g., mouse movements, mouse clicks, actions, online browsing, etc.). This section sets out how and when we collect those types of data from you.
We may collect the following Personal Information:
For the avoidance of doubt, if we combine Personal Information with Non-personal Information, the combined information will be treated as Personal Information as long as it remains combined.
Cookies and other technologies

These purposes include, among other things, allowing you to navigate between pages efficiently, enabling automatic activation of certain features, remembering your preferences, and making the interaction between you and the Services quicker, easier and smoother.

How we use the information
With whom we share the information, and for what purpose
We may also disclose Personal Information or any information you submitted via the Services if we have a good faith belief that disclosure of such information is helpful or reasonably necessary to: (i) comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request; (ii) enforce our policies, including investigations of potential violations thereof; (iii) investigate, detect, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities or other wrongdoing, suspected fraud or security issues; (iv) to establish or exercise our rights to defend against legal claims; (v) prevent harm to the rights, property or safety of us, our affiliates, our Users, yourself or any third party; (vi) for the purpose of collaborating with law enforcement agencies; and (vii) in case we find it necessary in order to enforce intellectual property or other legal rights.
Third-party collection of information
Our policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties via the Services (e.g., by connecting your account on the Service with third-party services or by clicking on a link to any other website or location) or via other sites throughout the Internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them.
Since we operate globally, Personal Information may be stored and processed in various countries worldwide. We may transfer your Personal Information to countries other than your own jurisdiction. These countries' data protection rules may differ from those in your country. We will take appropriate measures to ensure our transfers of Personal Information comply with applicable data protection laws.
How long we retain the information for
We will retain your Personal Information for as long as necessary to provide our Services and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our policies. Retention periods will be determined to take into account the type of information that is collected and the purpose for which it is collected, bearing in mind the requirements applicable to the situation and the need to destroy outdated, unused information at the earliest reasonable time.
Certain jurisdictions provide users with certain statutory rights with respect to their Personal Information. Subject to exemptions provided by law, and with proper identification, you may have some/all of the following rights available to you:
If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. When handling your request, we may ask for additional information to confirm your identity (which may include personal information). However, please note that if you choose not to allow us to process your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with the Services.
If you wish to raise a complaint about how we have handled your Personal Information, please contact us directly at email@example.com. If you are not satisfied with our response or believe we are collecting or processing your Personal Information not in accordance with applicable law, you can complain to your applicable data protection authority.
How we protect your information
We take great care in implementing and maintaining the security of the Services and your information. We employ industry standard procedures and policies to ensure the safety of your information and prevent unauthorized use of any such information. While we seek to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information. You should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the internet and that there is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart our security systems. Such breaches can lead to things such as reputational harm, fraud, or identity theft. Therefore, we encourage you to exercise discretion regarding the Personal Information you choose to disclose.
Although we take reasonable steps to safeguard information, we cannot be responsible for the acts of those who gain unauthorized access or abuse the Services, and we make no warranty, express, implied, or otherwise, that we will prevent such access.
If you feel that your privacy was treated not in accordance with our policy, or if any person attempted to abuse the Services or acted in an inappropriate manner, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may use your Personal Information, such as your full name, email address, etc., either directly or indirectly, to send you notifications, messages, and other updates about new features, offerings, events, and special opportunities or any other information we think you may find valuable.

Where you opt-out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of a product/service purchase, warranty registration, product/service experience, or other transactions.
