How we handle your personal data

We will take specific steps (as required by applicable data protection laws) to ensure we take appropriate security measures to protect your personal data from unlawful or unauthorised processing and accidental loss, destruction or damage.

How long we retain personal information can vary significantly based on context of the services we provide and on our legal obligations. The following factors typically influence retention periods:

How long is the personal information needed to provide our services? This includes such things as maintaining and improving the performance of our products, keeping our systems secure, and maintaining appropriate business and financial records. This is the general rule that establishes the baseline for most of our data retention periods.

Have you provided consent for a specified retention period? If so, we will retain data in accordance with your consent.

Where our processing of your personal data is based on your consent you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

After it is no longer necessary for us to retain your personal information, we will dispose of it in a secure manner.

Subject to certain conditions, you are entitled to have access to your personal data (this is more commonly known as submitting a “data subject access request”). This right also means you can obtain information about how we process your personal information.

Subject to certain conditions, you have the right to object to or ask us to restrict the processing of your personal data.

Subject to certain conditions, you are entitled to have your personal data erased (also known as the “right to be forgotten”). For example where your personal data is no longer needed for the purposes it was collected for, or where the relevant processing is unlawful.
