Legal Basis for processing your personal information
Some regulations require that companies identify the legal basis that support the processing activity of personal data.
Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal data described above will depend on the personal data concerned and the specific context in which we collected.
However, we will normally collect personal data from you only:
- where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights, for example responding to your inquiries or tailor our marketing to you, or;
- where we have your consent to do so.
If we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), these interests will generally relate to:
- operating our platform and communicating with you as necessary to provide our services and support to you,
- responding to your inquiries,
- improving our services and platform,
- undertaking marketing, or
- for the purposes of detecting or preventing illegal activities.
We may have other legitimate interests and if appropriate we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.
If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us using the contact details provided below.
It is our policy that visitors to our Site, who are under the age of 18 (or applicable age of majority if higher in a particular jurisdiction) should not post on or provide information to our Site without the consent of their parents or legal tutor. You should supervise the online activities of your children, and consider the use of parental control tools available from online services and software providers that help provide a kid-friendly Internet environment. The Site is not intended for children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 from the site. If we learn that we have obtained any personally identifiable information about a children under age 13 or receive any request to this effect, we will delete that information.
This Site has technical and organizational security measures in place. Some of the measures we use in different circumstances are encryption, secured entry points to our servers, and monitoring and training for our personnel to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We also have implemented measures to maintain the ongoing confidentiality, integrity and availability of the systems and services that process personal information, and will restore the availability and access to data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident.
However, no system is perfect or can guarantee that unauthorized access or theft of information will not occur.
International data transfers
Your personal information may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country.
Specifically, some of our Site servers are located in the United States, and our group companies and third party service providers and partners operate around the world. This means that when we collect your personal information we may process it in various countries.
We may also rely on transfer mechanisms approved by authorities in the country from which the data are transferred to implement safeguards with our third party service providers and partners to ensure personal data protection. Further details, and copies of the standard contractual clauses can be provided upon request.
We retain personal data we collect where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so for example, to provide you with a service you have requested, including providing you with warranty for the product you have purchased, to retain your information for future marketing purposes or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
In general, we will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant service, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us and for a reasonable period of time afterward, for instance to pursue our legitimate business interests, conduct audits, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
We review our retention periods of personal information on a regular basis.
