1. INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT FROM YOU

We may collect and process the following data about you

INFORMATION YOU GIVE US. When you use ABCtales, you’re likely to give us two types of personal information: “Account Information” such as your name and email address (see “What we collect from you and how we do it” below) and we need this to run your account. The other type is “Account Content” which is information you choose to upload to your account. In relation to any personal data in your Account Information, Burgeon Creative Ideas Ltd ("we") will be the data controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the “Act”). In relation to your Account Content, since it’ll be you rather than us who will generally decide what you add to your account and how you use it, we won’t normally be a data controller in respect of that information.

We are based at Barne House, Dry Lane, Christow, Exeter EX6 7PE. If you ever want to get in touch with us about your personal data or privacy, email luke@abctales.com.
