The provision of certain types of personal data may be necessary or optional, depending on the services you wish to receive.

How Do We Handle International Transfers of Your Personal Data?
International data transfers refer to transfers of personal data outside of the European Union (“EU”), United Kingdom (“UK”) or Australia. The information that we collect about you will be stored in the United States and shared with third parties located in the United States. When we transfer your personal data from your local jurisdiction to other countries that do not provide adequate legal protection for the processing of personal data, we will ensure that appropriate safeguards are implemented to secure such data transfers in compliance with applicable data protection laws and after having carried out an assessment of the level of protection of your rights in the territory or the third country where the recipient is established. We have implemented international data transfer agreements based on EU and UK Standard Contractual Clauses to cover our international data transfers and a copy of these clauses can be obtained by contacting us at email@example.com.
How Long Do We Retain Your Personal Data?
We will retain your personal data for as long as necessary for the purposes disclosed in this Privacy Notice, unless required by our legal obligations to retain it for longer. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of data, the purposes for which we process data, whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and all applicable legal, regulatory, and compliance requirements.
For example, the data collected when you request to purchase our services will be kept at least until their processing is complete.
In addition, we will keep your personal data during:
the statute of limitation, if needed for evidence purposes;
the applicable legal retention periods, in particular regarding commercial, compliance, and regulatory matters, or any other mandatory retention period (such as legal hold or investigation).
What Security Measures Have We Implemented?
We have implemented reasonable measures designed to secure your personal data from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to us.

If you are a resident of the European Union (“EU”), United Kingdom (“UK”), or Australia the rights described in this section can be exercised by you at any time by contacting us email@example.com.
Right to access. You are entitled to obtain confirmation from us as to whether or not any personal data concerning you is processed by us.
You have the right to access your personal data, to obtain a copy of it free of charge (except for repetitive or excessive requests) and to be provided with the following information: (i) purposes of such processing, (ii) categories of personal data concerned, (iii) recipients or categories of recipients of personal data, in particular recipients in third countries outside the EU, UK, or Australia, (iv) the envisaged retention period or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine it, (v) existence of the right to request rectification or erasure of personal data, as well as the right to object to or request restriction of processing, (vi) the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, (vii) information relating to any third party source of personal data if the data were not collected from you, and (viii) the existence, the logic involved, the significance and the consequences of any automated decisions, including profiling. Where personal data is transferred outside of the EU, UK, or Australia, you will be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to such transfer.
Right to rectification. You have the right to obtain without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate, incomplete or outdated personal data concerning you.
Right to erasure. You have the right to obtain without undue delay the erasure of your personal data in one of the following cases:
The personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose(s) for which it was collected or otherwise processed;
You withdraw the consent on which the processing was based, and there are no other legal grounds for the processing;
You object to the processing, as provided in the “Right to object” section below;
Your personal data has been unlawfully processed;
Your personal data has to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in the EU, UK, or Australia.
However, we may refuse the erasure of personal data if the processing of such data is necessary for (i) exercising the right of freedom of expression and information, (ii) compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by EU, UK, or Australia law or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest, (iii) reasons of public interest in the area of public health, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes, or (iv) establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
Right to restriction. You have the right to obtain restriction of processing in the following cases:
Where you claim inaccuracy of your personal data processed by us (the restriction being provided for a period enabling us to verify the accuracy);
Where the processing appears unlawful, and you oppose the erasure and request the restriction of use of your personal data instead;
Where we do not need your personal data for the purposes of processing, but the personal data is required by you for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; and
Where an objection is raised by you in relation to the processing, pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the Company override those of you.
When you have obtained a restriction of processing of your personal data, you will be informed prior to the lifting of such restriction.
Right to object. As a general rule, you have the right to object, at any time and on legitimate grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data. Provided that such objection is justified, we will no longer process the personal data concerned unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests.
Right to data portability. In cases where the data processing is based on your consent or on your contract, and where such processing is carried out by automated means, you can request us (i) to communicate to you the personal data concerning you, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, in order to be able to further transmit such personal data to another data controller, or (ii) to directly transmit such personal data to such other data controller, if technically feasible. However, we can refuse such request if the processing concerned is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or if responding to such request risks to adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
Right to withdraw consent. Where the processing of your personal data is based on consent, you have the right to withdraw such consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
Right to lodge a complaint. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. If you are a resident of Australia, please get in touch if you have any questions or complaints about how we collect, use or manage personal data about you. You can contact us using the contact information below.
