We take reasonable precautions to protect personal information and to keep personal information secure from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. For example, when you enter information (such as login credentials) on our login form, we encrypt the transmission of that information using transport layer security (TLS).

We will retain your personal information for as long as is necessary for purposes for which it was collected. The precise period will depend on the reason why it was collected. For example: for marketing purposes your personal information will be retained until you withdraw your consent; and in relation to your questions, until your comment or question has been resolved and a reasonable period thereafter or as long as the law requires. Once the retention period for each situation has expired we will take all reasonable steps to destroy or erase from our systems all personal data that we no longer require in accordance with all our applicable record retention schedules and policies.

Where will we transfer your information?

We are headquartered in the United States and we will process your information in the United States. Your personal information will be transferred and stored in the United States.

Due to the global nature of our business, as part of the Services offered to you through our Site, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Union/European Economic Area (“EU/EEA”) or United Kingdom (“UK”) (such a country is called a “third country”) (e.g., our third-party payment processor in the United States). Data protection law imposes restrictions on the transfer of personal information outside of the EU/EEA or the UK but such transfers can be made if the country to which we may transfer the data has an adequate level of protection for your rights, there are appropriate safeguards or a contract is in place allowing the transfer to take place, you have provided your consent or the transfer is necessary for reasons set out in the data protection laws.

If we transfer your information outside of the EU/EEA or the UK in this way, we will take reasonable steps and implement appropriate measures to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Privacy Policy and in accordance with data protection law. These measures generally include either transferring personal information to third countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal information by the European Commission or transferring personal information to a third country where the recipient has agreed to a European Commission-approved data transfer agreement in the form of standard contractual clauses.
