We collect information globally and store all information in Estonia (and the EU). We transfer, process and store your information outside of your country of residence, to wherever we or our third-party service providers operate. Whenever we transfer your information, we take steps to protect it.

Where you have provided consent, we share your information, including personal information, as described at the time of consent.

We share your billing information with any authorized third party in order to comply with the law, respond to legal requests, prevent harm and protect our rights.

Eliko may disclose your information to courts, law enforcement or governmental authorities, or authorized third parties, if and to the extent we are required to do so by law or if such disclosure is reasonably necessary: (i) comply with our legal obligations, (ii) to comply with legal process, (iii) to respond to verified requests relating to a criminal investigation or alleged or suspected illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you, or any other of our users to legal liability, (iv) to protect the rights, property or personal safety of Eliko and its employees.

Where appropriate, we may notify you about legal requests unless: (i) providing notice is prohibited by the legal process itself, by court order we receive, or by applicable law, or (ii) we believe that providing notice would be ineffective, create a risk of injury to an individual or group, or create or increase a risk of fraud upon Eliko’s property and its users. In instances where we comply with legal requests without notice for these reasons, we will attempt to notify you about the request after the fact where appropriate and where we determine in good faith that we are no longer prevented from doing so.

Eliko uses a variety of third party service providers to help us provide our products and services. These service providers are located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and the United States of America. We ensure that these third party service providers have adequate security controls.

For example, service providers may help us: (a) perform product development, maintenance and debugging, (b) allow us to use third party platforms and software tools to better service our customers, or (c) provide advertising, or payments services. These providers have limited access to your information, and are contractually bound to protect and to use it only for the purposes for which it was disclosed and consistent with this Privacy Policy.

We may also share aggregated information (information about our customers and leads that we combine together so that it no longer identifies or references an individual) and other anonymized information for regulatory compliance, industry and market analysis marketing and advertising, and other business purposes.
