Personal Information We Collect
We also may obtain personal information about you from third parties acting on our behalf, such as the frequency with which you visit our site and the links you use, including in order to enhance the utility of our site.
Personal Information We Obtain By Automated Means
How We Use the Information We Collect
We may use personal information that you provide to us to respond to your inquiry, for example, to contact you about your request, ask a question, provide announcements about future events and opportunities, conduct surveys, and contact you for other reasons related to offering and improving our services.
In addition to the uses discussed above, we may also use the personal information you provide on our site to:
- operate, evaluate, and improve our business;
- administer the site;
- develop new products and services;
- perform market research;
- analyze our products, services, and websites;
We use the personal information for the purposes described above because we have a legitimate business interest in providing services to our customers and other interested individuals that is not overridden by your interests, rights and freedoms to protect personal information about you.
Disclosure of Information
We may disclose personal information about you (a) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, for example due to a request from a law enforcement authority, a subpoena, court order or discovery request; (b) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss; (c) when we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate in connection with any activity that violates the law (including relating to intellectual property, fraud, contracts and privacy) or may expose us to liability; (d) in connection with the investigation of suspected or actual fraudulent or other illegal activity; and (e) in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a reorganization, dissolution, or liquidation).
Protection of Personal Information
The security of your personal information is important to us. We employ technical, administrative, and physical security measures to protect any personal information you provide through the Site from unauthorized access or use. You should be aware, however, that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet, and there is always the risk that unauthorized persons may access or use your personal information. You use the site and send us such information at your own risk.
Transfers of Your Personal Information
If you are located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), we comply with applicable legal requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of personal information to recipients in countries outside of the EEA and Switzerland. In all such cases, we will only transfer your personal information if:
- The country to which the personal information will be transferred has been granted a European Commission adequacy decision;
- The recipient of the personal information is located in the U.S. and has certified to the US-EU Privacy Shield Framework; or
- We have put in place appropriate safeguards in respect of the transfer, for example the EU Model Contracts.
If you are located in the EEA, you may also request a copy of the safeguards that we have put in place in respect to transfers of personal information by contacting us as described in the How to Contact Us section below.
How Long We Keep Your Personal Information
The time period for which we keep personal information depends on the purpose for which we collected it. In all cases we keep it for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it. We will then delete the personal information, unless we are legally required to retain it or if we need to retain it in order to comply with our legal obligations (for example, for tax and accounting purposes).
If you are located in the EEA or Switzerland, subject to applicable law, you may have the following rights in relation to personal information that we hold about you:
- To request confirmation of whether we process personal information relating to you and, if so, to request a copy of that personal information;
- To request that we rectify or update your personal information that is inaccurate, incomplete or outdated;
- To request that we erase your personal information in certain circumstances, such as where we collected personal information on the basis of your consent and you withdraw your consent;
- To request that we restrict the use of your personal information in certain circumstances, such as while we consider another request that you have submitted, for example a request that we update your personal information;
- Where you have given us consent to process your personal information, to withdraw your consent; and
- To request that we provide a copy of your personal information to you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format in certain circumstances.
- To object to certain of our data processing, such as for direct marketing purposes.
If you are located in the EEA and you wish to exercise any of your data protection rights, or if you consider that we have processed your personal information in violation of applicable law, please contact us as detailed in the “How to Contact Us” section below.
If you consider that we have processed your personal information in violation of applicable law and failed to remedy such violation to your reasonable satisfaction, you may also lodge a complaint with the data protection supervisory authority in your country.
