- CROSS-BORDER TRANSFERS OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We share personal data with Genisys Digital related companies. Some of Our external third-parties are based outside the Seychelles and their processing of personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the Seychelles. Whenever We transfer such personal data out the Seychelles, We ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is applied in accordance with applicable law.
- We will only transfer personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data at least as rigorous as the Seychelles provides; and
- Where We use certain third-party service providers, We may use specific contracts which give personal data the same protection it has in the Seychelles.
By providing Us with personal information, that user expressly consents to Our transferring their personal information to countries or jurisdictions which may not provide the same level of data protection as their home country, including without limitation countries or jurisdictions outside the Seychelles.
Users may contact Us for further information on the specific mechanism used by Us when transferring personal data out of the Seychelles.
- DATA SECURITY
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, We limit access to personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third-parties who have a business need to know. They will only process personal data on Our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify users and any applicable regulator of a breach where We are legally required to do so.
- DATA RETENTION
How long will personal data be used?
We will only retain personal data for as long as is reasonably necessary in order that We may fulfill the purposes We collected it for and for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, or reporting requirements. We may retain personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if We reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to Our relationship with that user.
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 unauthorised use or disclosure of personal data, the purposes for which We process personal data and whether We can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory or other requirements.
We apply a general rule of keeping personal information for as long as is required in order that We may fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. However, in some circumstances, We may retain personal information for longer periods of time (for instance, where We are required to do so in accordance with legal, tax or accounting obligations).
In specific circumstances, We may also retain personal information for longer periods of time so that We have an accurate record of users’ dealings with Us in the event of any complaints or challenges.
We maintain a retention procedure which We apply to records in Our care. In all cases, where information is no longer required We will ensure it is disposed of in a secure manner and, where required by applicable law, We will notify the user when such information has been disposed of.
In some circumstances, users may ask Us to delete their data.
In some circumstances, We will anonymise personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case We may use this information indefinitely without further notice.
- USERS’ LEGAL RIGHTS
Under certain circumstances, users have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data, as follows:
Data subject access request. This will enable a user to receive a copy of the personal data We hold about them and to check that We are lawfully processing it.
Request correction of the personal data that We hold. This will enable a user to have any incomplete or inaccurate data We hold about them corrected, though We may need to verify the accuracy of the new data they provide to Us.
Request deletion of your personal data. This will enable a user to request Us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for Us continuing to process it. They also have the right to request Us to delete or remove their personal data where they have successfully exercised their right to object to processing. This may occur in instances where We may have processed their information unlawfully or where We are required to erase their personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that We may not always be able to comply with their request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be communicated to the user, if applicable, at the time of their request.
Object to processing of personal data where We are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third-party) and there is something about a user’s particular situation which makes them want to object to processing on this ground as they feel it impacts their fundamental rights and freedoms. Users also have the right to object where We are processing their personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, We may demonstrate that We have compelling legitimate grounds to process their information which override their rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables a user to request Us to suspend the processing of their personal data in the following scenarios:
- If they want Us to establish the data’s accuracy.
- Where Our use of the data is unlawful but they do not want Us to erase it.
- Where they need Us to hold the data even if We no longer require it as they need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
- They have objected to Our use of their data but We need to verify whether We have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Request the transfer of personal data to you or to a third-party. We will provide to a user, or to a third-party they have chosen, their personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information for which they initially provided consent for Us to use or where We used the information to perform a contract with them.
Withdraw consent at any time where We are relying on consent to process personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before a user withdraws their consent. If they withdraw their consent, We may not be able to provide access to Our website to them. We will advise them if this is the case at the time they withdraw their consent.
No fee usually required
Users will not have to pay a fee to access their personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, We may charge a reasonable fee if their request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, We could refuse to comply with their request in these circumstances.
What We may need from users
We may need to request specific information from users to help Us confirm their identity and ensure their right to access their personal data (or to exercise any of their other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact the user to ask for further information in relation to their request to speed up Our response.
These rights are not absolute and they do not always apply in all cases.
Legitimate Interest means the interest of Our business in conducting and managing Our business to enable Us to give the best website and the best and most secure experience. We make sure We consider and balance any potential impact on users (both positive and negative) and their rights before We process their personal data for Our legitimate interests. We do not use personal data for activities where Our interests are overridden by the impact on the user (unless We have their consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). Further information about how We assess Our legitimate interests against any potential impact on users in respect of specific activities is available by contacting Us.
Performance of Contract means processing users’ data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which they are a party or to take steps at users’ requests before entering into such a contract.
Comply with a legal obligation means processing users’ personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation that We are subject to.
