Legal Grounds For Processing
If you are a visitor from the European Economic Area, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.
As a general rule, we will process your Personal Information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms, and in some cases, where we have a legal obligation to process your Personal Information. In some cases, we may rely on your consent to process your Personal Information (e.g. for direct marketing purposes).
If we ask you to provide Personal Information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your Personal Information is mandatory or not, as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your Personal Information.
Similarly, if we collect and use your Personal Information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.
If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us by using the contact details provided below.
We retain your Personal Information no longer than is necessary and relevant for our operations. In addition, we may retain Personal Information to comply with national laws, prevent fraud, troubleshoot problems, and take other actions permitted or required by applicable national laws (e.g. 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.
Transfer Of Personal Information Outside The EU/EEA
We may transfer your Personal Information to, and process it in, countries other than the country in which you are resident, which are located outside the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your home country.
Specifically, our servers are located in the United States and our group companies and third party service providers and partners operate around the world. This means that when we collect your Personal Information we may process it in any of these countries.
Except where your Personal Information is transferred to third countries outside the EU/EEA that have been officially recognised by the European Commission as countries that provide an adequate level of protection, in all other cases, we have taken appropriate safeguards to ensure that when your Personal Information is transferred to group companies or third parties outside the EU/EEA, your Personal Information will remain protected in accordance with this Policy. Such safeguards may include transferring the data to a company in the United States that has certified to the EU-US Privacy Shield framework or with whom we have signed the EU Standard Contractual Clauses or that has Binding Corporate Rules that were approved by the European Data Protection Board, or any other valid legal mechanism for lawfully transferring Personal Information outside the EU/EEA in accordance with the GDPR.
For further information concerning the safeguards we have put in place, please contact us as indicated in the section "Contact Information" below.

You have the following data protection rights:
- If we have collected and process your Personal Information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your Personal Information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
- If you have a complaint or concern about how we are processing your Personal Information then we will endeavour to address such concern(s). If you feel we have not sufficiently addressed your complaint or concern, you have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection and use of your Personal Information.
