Generally, we do not disclose your Personal Information to third parties without your consent. However, in order to provide you with the Services, we may need to transfer your Personal Information to our subsidiaries, parent companies, employees, contractors, consultants, government agencies and regulators, and other parties who require such information to assist us with managing and administering our relationship with you, including:
Additionally, in order to provide you with the Services, we may need to transfer your Personal Information to third party technology companies for the purposes of processing and storing your Personal Information. Our business necessitates using: (a) cloud storage and hosting providers; (b) email services providers; and (c) payment processors. We consider these services, platforms, and applications to be integral to our delivery of the Services to you.
Under certain circumstances, we may disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities (e.g. a court or a government agency).
We reserve the right to transfer Personal Information to a third party in the event that we merge with or are acquired by a third party, or as part of the negotiations leading up to such merger or acquisition. We also may disclose your Personal Information for any other purpose permitted by law or to which you consent.
We may disclose your Personal Information in the good faith belief that such action is necessary:
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We are committed to ensuring your Personal Information is protected and will use industry-standard security measures, including Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, to do so. If you create an account on the Services using your email address, we store only a hashed version of your email address. Personal Information may only be accessed by persons within our organization who require such access to provide you with the services indicated above.
While we endeavour to keep your Personal Information safe, our collection, use, and disclosure of your Personal Information is not without risks. For example, our security safeguards may be compromised by viruses, hacking attempts, or physical break-ins. Consequently, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information. If your Personal Information was wrongfully accessed, there is a risk that you may suffer a harm, such as identity or credit card theft or financial loss.
Please be careful whenever sending Personal Information to us via email. Email is generally not a secure means of transferring information. We therefore cannot guarantee that this information will not be lost or used in a fraudulent manner and we encourage the use of email encryption or other encrypted services to communicate with us.
The Personal Information we collect from you is stored in our servers located in the United States.
We retain Personal Information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
We may need to transfer your Personal Information to our service providers for processing. This processing supports our business. For example, we may transfer your Personal Information to our cloud hosting provider for storage and retention purposes. We ensure that these recipients of your Personal Information are contractually obligated to keep your Personal Information confidential, to use it only for the purposes for which we transfer it to them, and to process the Personal Information with standards at least as stringent as those set out in this policy.
Personal Information may be stored and processed in any country where we do business or our service providers do business. We may transfer your Personal Information to countries other than your own country. These countries may have data protection rules that are different from your country. When transferring data across borders, we take measures to comply with applicable data protection laws related to such transfer. Officials (such as law enforcement or security authorities) in those other countries may be entitled to access your Personal Information By using any of our Services, or by sending us any Personal Information, you consent to such transfers.
We do not knowingly solicit information from or market to children under the age of 13. If you become aware of any data we have collected from children under age 13, please contact us using the contact information provided below.
You have a right to challenge the accuracy and completeness of your Personal Information and to have it amended, as appropriate. You also have a right to request access to your Personal Information and receive an accounting of how that information has been used and disclosed, subject to certain exceptions prescribed by law. For example, if the requested information would reveal Personal Information about another individual, your request for access may be limited or denied.
