5. How We use your personal information
We use the information you provide to us and the information we collect about you to offer you specific services, and in particular for the following reasons:
Garlik will communicate with you via email and notices posted on this site. These communications will include a series of welcome emails, which inform new users about various features of the service they have requested and emails relating to the operation of user accounts. Garlik may also send you promotional emails if you have consented to receive such information. You may request that we stop sending you promotional material at any time by emailing us at email@example.com.
If you are an existing customer of Garlik, we will only send you promotional communications relating to services and products similar to those already obtained by you provided you have not indicated your objection to receiving such communications.
We may provide aggregated data about the use of our services to select third parties for such purposes as we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate. This aggregated data will not contain personal information about you and will not enable you to be identified or located. We may segment our users by age, geographic location, gender, etc. If you would like to be excluded from aggregated research please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may provide you with an opportunity to contact and communicate with other Garlik members by email. We will never allow this without the express permission of both parties.
We may offer external links on our website to improve your online experience. These links will always be clearly identified so that you are aware that you are leaving our website when you link to another site. Please be aware that these websites are not owned or operated by Garlik in any way but are run by independent companies and organisations. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for the content of these third party sites.

Any access request you make of us may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with the information that we hold. If you believe that any of the information we hold about you is incorrect or incomplete, then please let us know so that we can investigate and, if necessary, amend the information. You can email us at email@example.com.

You can do this at any time by logging into your account on the Garlik website and editing the information on your account page. We may retain certain data contributed by you where necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, or for legitimate business purposes, such as analysis of aggregated, non-personally-identifiable data, account recovery data, or any data required by law. All retained data will continue to be subject to the terms of this Policy. To request that we close your account and remove your information from the Garlik service, please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
