5 What if you refuse to provide us with any personal data?
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of an agreement we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with products or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
Whilst we may be able to provide you with certain products and services notwithstanding your refusal to submit personal data, this may limit your ability to participate in some activities or features or your use of certain online services.
We may lawfully obtain information from third parties or public sources and we may process that information where it is an essential component of the products and services we offer you.
6. Sharing information with affiliates and third parties
Your Data shall be processed by George Keburia. It shall not be transferred or made accessible to any third party apart from (i) possible subcontractors of George Keburia (carriers, providers of hosting and maintenance services of the Site, payment and fraud management service providers, web analytics service providers, logistic companies etc.), who we engage to provide services which facilitate our business and who may need to process your personal data to the extent necessary to provide those services; and (ii) in case of a reorganisation of our company, including total or partial transfer of assets, merger, takeover, de-merger, and in general any reorganisation operation.
We may share personal data with our group companies and partnered companies (together, "Affiliates") in order to provide our goods and services to you and for the other purposes outlined in this policy.
We seek to ensure that any third party engaged by us who processes your personal data has policies and procedures in place to ensure compliance with the Data Protection Legislation. For any third parties that are based, or process data, overseas, we only engage such third parties in accordance with paragraph 7. Unless otherwise disclosed to you from time to time, we will remain the data controller in respect of your personal data notwithstanding that third parties may be engaged as data processors.
7. International transfers of personal data
As we operate globally, it may be necessary to transfer your information internationally. In particular your information may be transferred to and/or stored on the servers of our Affiliates or other third parties identified in paragraph 6. Any transfer of your Data shall only take place subject to appropriate safeguards being in place, such as contractual safeguards, in keeping with applicable data protection laws and regulations.
8. Your rights as a data subject
In accordance with applicable data protection laws and regulations, you have a right to request access to, rectification or erasure of your Data, or restriction of processing, and to object to said processing, as well as the right to data portability to the extent applicable.
You can also oppose the use of your Data to build up your client profile; in this case you will no longer benefit from customised offers or services.
These rights may be exercised directly with George Keburia by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
Moreover, you may request at any time that we stop sending you information about our offers, news and events by using the hypertext link earmarked for that purpose in each e-mail that we send you.
9. Storage and retention of your personal data
As a minimum, we will store your data for as long as is reasonably necessary to provide you with the goods and services that you have requested from us, but in most cases we will retain certain of your personal data for as long as is reasonably necessary taking into consideration factors such as: our need to perform any agreements between you and us (including order fulfilment); our need to answer any queries or resolve any problems you may have; your continued consent to receive marketing and other emails and communications from us; our continued provision of our services to you; and our need to comply with legal requirements (e.g. relating to record keeping).
If you tell us that you would like to delete your account, we will take steps to delete all the personal data we hold about you once it is no longer necessary for us to hold it (e.g. to fulfil any outstanding orders, resolve disputes, or as is permitted by applicable law or regulation).
For as long as we do store your data, the Company follows generally accepted industry standards and maintains reasonable safeguards to attempt to ensure the security, integrity, and privacy of the information you have provided. The Company has security measures in place designed to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Personal data collected by the Company is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. The Company maintains information behind a firewall-protected server and uses SSL encryption for purchases made through our online store.
Notwithstanding our efforts to keep your personal data secure, no system can be 100% reliable. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide through the Channels. In addition, you are responsible for maintaining the strength and confidentiality of your login credentials.
We will notify you as soon as reasonably practicable if we have reason to believe that there has been a personal data breach by us (or your personal data held by us) which could adversely affect your rights and freedoms.
