Legal basis for processing
We collect and process data about you only where we have a legal basis for doing so. The legal bases for processing are when:
- It's necessary for a contract you enter with us (for example, when you request a service that we provide and we give it to you);
- It satifies a legitimate interest where the processing is not required by law but is of clear benefit to you or others;
- You give us consent to do so (for example if you give us permission to email you a newsletter or product update);
- We need to process your data to comply with a legal obligation;
- You can withdraw consent at any time, however this will not affect any processing that has already happened;
We endeavour not to keep personal data for longer than we need it. While we have your data, we protect it within acceptable means to prevent loss, theft and unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. If necessary we may retain your data for our compliance with legal obligation, or in order to protect your vital interests. We cannot guarantee absolute data security and advise that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure.

International data transfer
Any personal information we collect is stored and processed in United States, and where our partners, affiliates and third-party providers maintain facilities. When you give us your information you consent to its transfer overseas. If this transfer overseas results in transfer outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) we shall ensure that it's protected by appropriate safeguards. These safeguards include those approved by the European Commission, binding corporate rules, and other legally acceptable means. Transfers overseas may result in data you give us being held in jurisdiction which are not subject to similar data privacy laws as ours, therefore if a third party engages in acts or practices which would contravene our laws this may mean you will not be able to seek redress.
