    We will only use your personal data in accordance our privacy policy. Please read our privacy policy as it includes important terms which apply to you.

    If you do not agree with our privacy policy or these terms and conditions, you must not register an account.

    1. Individual Accounts and Account Holders

      Widgit is the data controller of the personal data for your account. The data we collect, its purpose and how long we keep it for is defined by our Privacy Policy.

      Widgit's supervisory authority is the Information Commissioners Office (ICO), with the registration number ZA360826.

    2. Group Accounts and Multi-Subscription Accounts

      In this section, "the service" is Widgit Online (""), where multi-subscription account holders can allocate and manage administrators and users of both individual and group accounts belonging to their multi-subscription account; and where group account holders can allocate and manage users on their group account. Users can be granted administrative, managerial, editorial and viewing privileges for other users and the content they create. In this section, a "sub-processor" is a third party appointed by us to assist in providing and supporting the service.

      The personally identifiable information that we may process in order to provide the service includes your payment details and any names, usernames, email addresses and telephone numbers provided for users on your account.

      For the purposes of data protection legislation, you (the account holder and the administrators and managers you appoint to represent you) acknowledge that you are the data controller of the personal data of users on your account and that we are the data processor.

      As the data controller of the personal data of users on your account, you represent and warrant that you:

      1. shall comply with these terms and conditions and all applicable data protection laws
      2. shall implement appropriate technical and organisational security measures to maintain the safety of your users' data
      3. have obtained any and all necessary permissions and authorisation required to permit us and our sub-processors to provide the service and perform our obligations under these terms and conditions.

      As the data processor, to the extent that we process any personal data on your behalf, we shall:

      1. act only on written instructions from you, unless required by applicable law
      2. only use your personal data for the purpose of providing the service
      3. process your personal data under the terms required by data protection legislation
      4. have in place appropriate technical and organisational security measures against unauthorised or unlawful processing of your personal data and against accidental loss, damage or destruction of your personal data
      5. not transfer your personal data outside of the European Economic Area without ensuring appropriate safeguards and an adequate level of protection
      6. only use sub-processors that you consent to and that are able to provide us with a written contract that respects data protection legislation
      7. provide you with information to demonstrate your own compliance with applicable law, allowing for and contributing to audits by you (or auditors mandated by you) and notifying you immediately if we believe that any instructions from you might violate applicable law
      8. take account of any guidance issued by the supervisory authority
      9. notify the account holder of any personal data breach without undue delay, using the email address that they have provided
      10. notify the account holder, using the email address that they have provided, of any request or communication regarding the privacy of their users.

      A list of the sub-processors we use is included in our Privacy Policy. We may share personal data with our sub-processors in order to provide the service. If we change the sub-processors that we use, a notice will be shown on our Privacy Policy at least 30 days before the change. To object to changes in sub-processing, account holders can write to us describing their reasons for objection within 14 days of the notice. We will resolve the objection by correcting our use of the sub-processor or by terminating the subscription and refunding the account holder under the terms in section 11 (Cancellation and Refunds).

      It is strongly recommended that personally identifiable information (e.g. name, email address) is not used in the credentials of users on your account. For example, Widgit Online uses usernames as part of the user's public web address and users may not want or expect their identity to be exposed in this way. If personally identifiable information is used in the credentials of users on the account, you must ensure that you have obtained the necessary permissions and authorisation to do so.

      All Widgit staff with access to your data are subject to a duty of confidence and have been trained in privacy awareness and the handling of personal data.

      We cannot respond to requests from your users regarding their privacy. We will assist you in responding to requests from your users and allowing your users to exercise their rights. If the supervisory authority contacts us in relation to your account, or if we are contacted by anyone in relation to the privacy of a user on your account, we will notify the account holder using the email address that they have provided.

      If a request regarding the privacy of your users cannot be satisfied using data and controls available on the website, contact so that we can assist you in satisfying the request. You can also contact us by writing to:
