Lawful Basis for Processing Personal Information
If you are in the European Economic Area or the United Kingdom, we process any personal information we collect in order to: (1) carry out our contractual obligations with you; (2) comply with our legal obligations; and (3) engage in activities that are in our legitimate interest, such as providing you with information related to our Services.
Under the GDPR, individuals have a number of important rights free of charge. In summary, these include rights to:
- Access the personal information we have about you;
- Require us to correct any mistakes in the personal information we have about you;
- Require us, in certain situations, to erase certain personal information we have about you;
- Receive your personal information in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format that can be easily transmitted to other third parties;
- Object – at any time – to the processing of your personal information for direct marketing;
- Object in certain other situations to our continued processing of your personal information; and
- Otherwise restrict our processing of your personal information in certain circumstances.
For more information on each of these rights, including the circumstances in which they apply, see the Guidance from the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) on individuals rights under the GDPR.
If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please:
- Email us at [email protected];
- Let us have enough information to identify you; and
- Let us know the information to which your request relates.
If we cannot verify your identity, we may request proof of your identify, such as a copy of your driver’s license or passport.
We hope that we can resolve any question or concern you raise about our use of your information; however, the GDPR also gives you the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the European Union (or European Economic Area) state where you work, normally live, or where any alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred.
We will store your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with the Services or information you require or request, or for as long as we are legally obligated to do so. We will also store certain personal information for archival purposes that are required for the continued operation of our business. For more information on where and how long your personal data is stored, and for more information on your rights of erasure and portability, please contact us at [email protected].
We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. All information we collect from you is stored in the cloud, which is encrypted by third-party systems. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorized manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to or through our Services. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk.
