In this instance, we will ensure that your privacy rights are protected by a contract containing materially the same obligations as we have to you and protecting your personal data.
How we keep your personal data secure
We use technical and organisational measures to safeguard your personal data – for example we use secure connections on our website to ensure that your website is encrypted. This means that we convert your data into a computer code, which will make it harder for hackers to access your data on our website.
While we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal data, you acknowledge that the use of the internet is not entirely secure and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal data that are transferred from you or to you via the internet.
If you want further information about how we are keeping your data secure, or have any particular concerns about your information, please contact us.
Working With Us to Keep Personal Data Secure
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
How Long We Will Store Your Personal Information
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitive of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
The length of time that we will store your data will depend on the ‘legal basis’ for why we are using that data, as follows:
|Legal Basis||Length of Time|
|Where we use/store your data because it is necessary for our legitimate business interests||We will use/store your data for as long as it is necessary for our legitimate business interests, or such earlier time as you ask us to stop. However, if we can demonstrate the reason why we are using/storing your data is more important than your interests, rights and freedoms, then we will be allowed to continue to use/store your data for as long as it is necessary for our legitimate business interests.|
|Where we use/store your data because you have given us your specific, informed and unambiguous consent.||We will use/store your data until you ask us to stop.|
