7.1 EEA Residents.

If you are a resident in the EEA or EU data protection law otherwise applies to your personal data, you have the following rights in respect of your personal data (if applicable):

  • Access. You have the right to request a copy of the personal data we are processing about you. For your own privacy and security, at our discretion we may require you to prove your identity before providing the requested information.

  • Deletion. You have the right to request that we delete personal data that we process about you, except we are not obliged to do so if we need to retain such data in order to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
  • Restriction. You have the right to restrict our processing of your personal data where you believe such data to be inaccurate, our processing is unlawful, or that we no longer need to process such data for a particular purpose, unless we are not able to delete the data due to a legal or other obligation or because you do not wish us to delete it.

We have implemented technical and organisational security measures to safeguard the personal data in our custody and control. Such measures include, for example, limiting access to personal data only to employees and authorised service providers who need to know such information for (a) the purposes described in this Privacy Notice; and (b) in order to perform their jobs, such as providing you with any information you request. We also maintain certain reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect the personal data in our possession from loss, misuse, and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, and we review and adjust these safeguards regularly in response to advances in technology.

While we endeavour to protect our systems, sites, operations and information against unauthorised access, use, modification and disclosure, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle and other risk factors, we cannot guarantee that any information, during transmission or while stored on our systems, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers.

9. How long do we keep your personal data?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary for the purpose for which that data was collected and to the extent permitted by applicable law.
