What's in this policy?

This policy explains what information we collect when you use TheLogically Limited (referred to in this policy as “we” “us” or “Logically”) sites, services, mobile applications, products, and content (“Services”). It also has information about how we store, use, transfer, and delete that information. Transparency is one of our core values which is why we want you to be clear about what this Policy covers.

Collection of information and how we use it

Logically doesn’t generate revenue from advertising on any of the services we provide to you so the data we collect is not used to advertise to you. The collection of your data is solely done to make Logically work as well as it can and to continually improve Logically services.

We collect information about how you use our network to make sure that logically works to it's full capability and give you the best experience we can provide. We collect information that you give us (such as email addresses to get in contact with you if you've given consent) as well as information about how you use our services(such as how long you spend on a page/website.) This information includes your IP address, and information about the device you use to access our services such as; the type of device, browser type and screen resolution.

We use this information to:

  • Provide, test, improve and promote Logically services

  • Fight abuse, spam and keep your account safe and secure

  • Create Aggregate, non-identifiable information about how you and other users use Logically services

If you choose to sign up or authenticate/link your Logically account with a third party service (such as Twitter, Google or Facebook) we may collect information associated with the third-party account such as your friend lists or followers. We will never post or publish to any connected third-party account without your consent.

Do we disclose user information to third parties that advertise?

We do not. Logically does not transfer and/or sell information about you to third parties for the purpose of facilitating or providing advertising on third party platforms.

In some circumstances we may share your information with third parties such as:

  • With your consent

  • To a service provider or partner who meets our data protection standards

  • With academic or non profit researchers, with aggregation, anonymisation or pseudonymisation.

  • When we have a good faith belief it is required by law

  • When we have a good faith belied that doing so will help prevent harm to someone

In the event that your information is shared in response to a legal process, we will give you sufficient notice in order to challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless the law prohibits it or we believe giving notice will endanger others. All requests for user information that we believe to be improper will be objected.

Storage of the data we collect

Logically uses third-party vendors and hosting partners, such as google, for software, networking, storage and hardware and related technology we need to run Logically services. There are two types of logs which we use; server logs and event logs. Our servers record every request made when someone visits our site (like most other internet companies)

Third Party Embeds

Logically often uses content hosted on other sites (such as articles and videos from news publications). This content is not hosted on Logically and therefore these files send data back to the hosted site as if you were visiting that site directly. Logically can not control the data or what is done with the data collected from third parties in these cases, therefore third party embeds on Logically services are not covered by this policy. They are covered by the privacy policy of the third party site or service.

Embeds may request your personal information through forms (for example: they may ask for your email address). In choosing to give your personal information to a third party, the third party may the information provided as explained above. This privacy policy does not cover what third parties do with the information you choose to provide them so please ensure you have read and understand the third party's privacy policy prior to submitting any personal information through a third party form.

If you embed a form that allows submission of personal information by users on any of Logically's services you must provide a link to an a Privacy Policy stating, clearly why you intend to use the information collected and how you will use the user information. In the event that you do not provide a link to a Privacy Policy with the information requested above, the post containing the embedded form may be removed or further action may be taken on your account (such as suspension or removal of your account.)

Data Storage

Logically uses third-party vendors and hosting partners, such as Google, for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology needed to run Logically. By using Logically Services, you authorise Logically to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States and any other country where we operate.

Tracking & Cookies

We use browser cookies and similar technologies to recognise you when you return to our Services. We use them in various ways, for example to log you in, remember your preferences (such as default language), help us understand how people use Logically and personalise content and other information.

Logically doesn’t track you across the Internet. We track only your interactions within the Logically network (which encompasses <logically.co.uk> and custom domains hosted by Logically).

Some third-party services that we use to provide the Logically Service, such as Google Analytics, may place their own cookies in your browser. This Privacy Policy covers use of cookies by Logically only and not the use of cookies by third parties.

We may keep residual copies of your information for a brief period to protect from malicious or accidental destruction. Be aware that, once your account is deleted the action is irreversible and your information and content will be unrecoverable after that time. When required by law, Logically may preserve and maintain copies of your information.

If you receive an email requesting such information, please contact as us as soon as possible so we can investigate.

Where Logically collects and stores personal data about non-users, it does so under performance of contract obligations with users who use the services to publish content on web sites hosted by Logically. In such cases, users authoring such content containing personal data of third parties are responsible for that content. Logically will consider related complaints in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation’s rights of the data subject, as well as rights of expression and access to information.

Public Nature of Personal Data

Logged-in users may choose to interact publicly with the Logically Services through using the site's comment function. Where such personal data may reveal special category protected data, it is processed on the basis that it is manifestly made public by the user, although it is advised that users do not share such data through commenting. Additional information on potential consequences of such processing can be found below.
