We may share personal data with other parties, including those set out below for the purposes set out in the above table:

  • Service providers, including specific third parties who provide data processing services to us (for example, software, IT, and system administration services), or who otherwise process personal data on our behalf.
  • Business partners, including manufacturers and software publishers who provide us with products needed to fulfill your order.

  • Professional advisers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers who provide consultancy, banking, legal, insurance and accounting services.
  • Any competent law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party where we believe disclosure is necessary (i) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (ii) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights, or (iii) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person.

  • Any other person or entity with your consent to the disclosure.

We require all third parties receiving personal data from us to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law.

We have put in place security measures to protect the personal data we collect from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. For instance, we take steps to limit access to your personal data by our employees, agents, contractors and other third parties.

We also have put in place procedures to deal with suspected breaches of personal data and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

How long will you use my personal data for?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances we may anonymize or deidentify your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with a specific individual) or create Aggregated Data for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you. When we deidentify data, we maintain and use such data only in deidentified form—we do not attempt to reidentify this data except as needed to determine that the data is appropriately deidentified.

This section applies to those that use our Sites from the European Economic Area (EEA), Switzerland, or the United Kingdom (UK).

What rights are available to me?

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under applicable data protection laws in relation to your personal data. Subject to certain exceptions and limitations, you have the right to:

Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Request that your personal data is ported to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us as described in the “Our contact details” section of this Privacy Notice. You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the competent supervisory authority. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach a supervisory authority so please contact us in the first instance.

Is personal data transferred?

Some of the parties with whom we may share your personal data are based outside the EEA, UK, or Switzerland so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside these jurisdictions.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, UK, or Switzerland, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring that an appropriate safeguard is implemented.

For example, where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in the EEA. For further details, see European Commission: EU Standard Contractual Clauses – see link.

Please contact us as described in the “Our contact details” section of this Privacy Notice if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA, UK, or Switzerland.
