International transfers

We may transfer the personal data we gather about you to countries other than where we were established or where the data was collected originally. Other destination countries may not have the same privacy rules as to where you first provided the information.

We will protect your data as detailed in this Privacy Policy and comply with relevant legislation when moving it to other countries. We may require receivers to adhere to suitable safeguards designed to secure personal data if necessary.

Obligation

For technical or IT security concerns, you will be asked to supply personal data in order for this Website to function correctly. You will not be able to use this Website unless you give this information.

Your rights

Depending on the circumstances and applicable law, you have the right to:

  • Submit a "data subject access request" to get access to your personal information. This allows you to request a copy of the personal data we have on file for you.
  • Request that we correct the personal data we hold about you. This allows you to correct any incomplete or outdated information we hold about you.
  • Request that your personal data be deleted. This allows you to request that we delete or remove your personal data if there is no justification for us to keep it. You also have the right to request that your personal data be deleted or removed if you have exercised your right to object to processing.
  • Object to the processing of your personal data if we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party), or there is something about your circumstances that makes you want to object on this basis.
  • Request that your personal data be transferred to you or another party.
  • You have the right to withdraw your consent where we process your personal data based on your consent. We may be unable to offer you services if you do not give your approval or withdraw your consent. Please keep in mind that withdrawing consent has no bearing on the legality of the processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Some of these rights are not absolute under relevant law (for example, there may be overriding interests that need the processing to continue); but, we will assess and respond to your request.

Finally, you have the right to file a complaint with the supervisory authority in the jurisdiction where you live or work or where you suspect a problem with your personal data has occurred.

Data retention

Personal information will be stored for as long as it is required to fulfil the purpose for which it was acquired or to comply with legal, regulatory, reporting, or internal policy obligations. We consider the applicable legal requirements, as well as the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data, and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the periods for which such personal data may need to be retained as evidence when determining the appropriate retention period for personal data.
