How We Use Your Information?
To put your mind at ease, we only use your personal data when the law allows us to. We do not simply use your data as and when we see fit. Generally, though, we will use your information when it’s necessary for our business interests as long as your rights do not override our interests. We will also use it in a situation where you have given us consent to use your data in a legal way.
We also will provide your information to third parties in the case of any acquisition of this site and company by another third party. Finally, we provide your information to third party marketing services that offer support for this website’s performance. We also make sure that any third parties have protocols in place to protect your data and that it will not fall into the wrong hands as a result of being given to the third party.
Third parties are not allowed to use your information for their own purposes, however, and are only allowed to use it for specified activities that follow our specific instructions. We may disclose personal information that you have submitted to us if we have reason to believe your information will be used in a necessary and reasonable manner that is in accordance with any laws or regulations. It can also be submitted under government request in compliance with any investigation into criminal activities.
How Long Do We Retain Your Information?
However, unless you tell us differently, we will keep all information in line with our retention policy. You can request a copy of this policy from us. The amount of time we retain your personal information is balanced against the volume, type, and sensitivity of the information we have collected from you, how harmful it might be if it falls into unauthorized use, or is disclosed as your individual personal information. We aim to correct any misuse or errors in your information.
How Do We Protect the Information You Give Us?
We also have contingencies in place should there be any suspected data breach. In the advent of such an occurrence, we will get in touch with you to inform you of the possible breach, and will also inform any regulator of this breach as required by law.
