8. SECURITY AND INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF DATA

8.1 We are committed to ensuring that your information will be treated confidentially and securely, and we have put in place appropriate measures to ensure the security of your personal data.

8.2 The personal data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, destinations outside the European Economic Area (EEA) where the laws on processing personal data may be less stringent than in your country. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our agents or suppliers.

8.3 Presently personal data collected from you is stored in data centres as well as cloud networks.

8.4 When your personal data is transferred to parties located outside of the EEA we shall undertake an assessment and take appropriate measures to ensure such third party will provide adequate security of such personal data and respect your rights to privacy. These safeguards are intended to ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to your data wherever it may be transferred and may include:

  • only transferring your personal data to countries which have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission;

  • entering into specific contractual terms which have been approved by the European Commission and which give personal data the same protection as within the EEA; or

  • where your data will be transferred to the US, ensuring that the third party to which we are transferring your data is part of the Privacy Shield.

8.6 We may retain your personal data for as long as we require for the purposes for which it is processed or as is otherwise required by applicable law. If you terminate your account on the website, cease using the Services, or our agreement with you under the Terms of Use is terminated, we may continue to process your personal data for a reasonable period and as required under applicable law.

8.7 When calculating the appropriate retention period for your data, we consider the nature and sensitivity of the data, the purposes for which we are processing the data, and any applicable statutory retention periods. Using these criteria, we regularly review the personal data which we hold and the purposes for which it is held and processed. Once processing has been completed, we may securely delete or anonymise your personal data.
