We would, however, appreciate the chance to address your concerns before you approach a supervisory authority, so please contact us in the first instance.
We regularly review our Privacy Notice and update it as necessary to comply with changes in applicable law. This version was last updated on August 1, 2018. Older versions can be obtained by contacting the DPO using the contact details listed above.
It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. It does not include data where any information that could be used directly or indirectly to identify a particular individual has been fully removed (anonymous data).
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together as follows:
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you. In this case, we may have to cancel a contract or service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:
We have set out below, in a table format, a description of all the ways we plan to use your personal data, and which of the legal bases we rely on to do so.

We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising communications. In the event you wish to start or stop receiving any marketing and/or informational communications, just email the DPO at the email address listed in Section 2.B above or click on the unsubscribe link in any relevant email.
We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which communication updates may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).
You will receive marketing communications from us if you have consented to this (or otherwise as permitted under applicable privacy laws).
We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.
We may share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in the table in Section 5.A above:
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
Any personal data that you submit on our website will be received directly by us in the United States. Our website is hosted in the United States and your personal data will not be transferred to any other country (whether in or out of the EU) before it is received by us in the United States.
If you are based in the EU (or in the UK following a departure of the UK from the EU) we will comply with the requirements of applicable privacy laws in respect of any transfer of your personal data outside of the EU/UK, and any subsequent transfers.
Please contact us if you want any information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect of our relationship with you.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised 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 applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see Section 10 – Your Legal Rights below for further information.
In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
Under certain circumstances, you may have the following rights under data privacy laws that apply to you in relation to your personal data:
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, or want to find out further information in relation to any of them, please contact the DPO at the email address listed in Section 2.B above.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights stated above). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
