Lawful basis for processing your personal data.

We process on the following legal bases:

1. Contract: It is necessary for our performance of the contract you have agreed to enter with us.  If you do not provide your personal data to us, we will not be able to carry out our obligations under the terms of the contract.

2. Legitimate Interests: We are permitted to process your personal data if it is based on our legitimate interests. In relation to general inquiry and complaints you send us, our legitimate interest is to provide you with information you have requested and to provide customer support. You can object to the processing that we carry out on the grounds of legitimate interests. See the section "Rights of data subjects" below to find out how.

3. Consent: Where you have given us consent to do so, we provide you, or permit third parties to provide you, with information about goods or services which we feel may interest you. You have the right to withdraw your consent. Please see the section "Rights of data subjects" below to find out how.

4. Legal Claims: We need to process your personal data to defend or establish a legal claim (for example, claims relating to the sale of our goods and services under contract law).
 

Rights of data subjects

You have the following rights, where provided under applicable law, regarding your information (each of which are subject to various exceptions and limitations):

1. The right to be informed: You have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your information and your rights. This is why we are providing you with the information in this Privacy Policy.

2. The right of access: You have the right to obtain access to your information (if we are processing it), and other certain other information (similar to that provided in this Privacy Policy).  This is so you are aware and can check that we are using your information in accordance with data protection law.

3. The right to rectification: You are entitled to have your information corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete. 

4. The right to erasure: This is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your information where there’s no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions. 

5. The right to restrict processing: You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your information. When processing is restricted, we can still store your information, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their information to be ‘blocked’ to make sure the restriction is respected in future. 

6. The right to data portability: You have rights to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services and platforms.

7. The right to object: You have the right to object to certain types of processing, in particular processing based on our legitimate interests.  You also can object at any time to your information being used for direct marketing purposes (including profiling related to such direct marketing). Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes.

If you are not satisfied with our response to your complaint or believe our processing of your information does not comply with data protection law, you can make a complaint to an EU data protection authority.

Please note your rights in relation to your personal data are not absolute. We may, for example, deny you access to your personal data when required or authorized by law, or if granting access would have an unreasonable impact on another individual’s privacy. 

We will retain your personal information for as long as needed to provide you with any services which you request. We will retain and use your personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
 

Security and Storage

We use technical and organizational security measures to protect our Websites. We store information for as long as necessary to carry out the purposes described here. We will also store information for as long as we are required to legally.

While we use reasonable security measures, we cannot guarantee that the Internet or your computer or mobile device will be completely secure. We encourage you to take steps to protect yourself online. For example, do not share passwords with other people, and make sure that any online account information you may have remains secure.
 

About Children

Our websites are not created for children. We do not believe children are interested in our websites, and do not knowingly collect information from children under 18. If you are a parent or guardian and think we have information about your child who is under 13, please send us an e-mail at [email protected] or write to us at the address listed below, Attn: Webmaster. To learn more about how to protect your child online, visit the U.S. Federal Trade Commission's website and read the FTC's helpful information.
 

Links

Our Websites may contain links to third party sites. If you click on one of those links, you will be taken to websites we do not control. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the information practices of such websites. You should read the privacy policy of other websites carefully. We are not responsible for such third-party sites.
 

Information Transfer and Storage

Our websites may be operated in the United States and other countries located outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Please be aware that information you provide to us may be transferred to or processed in the United States or other countries located outside of the EEA. The standard of data protection in the United States and in certain other countries where we may process your information is considered by the European Commission to be not adequate when compared to the date protection standards of the EU and EEA.  Please also be aware that by using our Websites and giving us your information, you consent to such transfer.
