WHO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH AND FOR WHAT PURPOSES
We may share your personal information with:
• service providers
We may share your personal information with service providers to provide services and to monitor and analyze the use of our Site. These third parties are obligated to comply with applicable data protection laws.
We may share your personal information with our partners to offer you certain products, services or promotions.

When you share your personal information or interact in the public areas with other users, such information may be viewed by all users and may be publicly distributed.
• other third parties where required by law
We may share your personal information with other parties where required or permitted by law, including regulatory authorities, government departments, law enforcement authorities or other government officials.
We may also share your information with other parties when you have consented to us doing so.
WHERE YOUR INFORMATION MAY BE SENT
Your personal information may be transferred globally. If your information is collected within the European Economic Area (“EEA”), this means that your information may be transferred outside of the EEA.
When using information as described in this Privacy Notice, your personal information may be transferred either within or outside the country or territory where it was collected, including to a country or territory that may not have equivalent data protection standards.
In all cases, where we transfer your personal information outside the EEA, the transfer will be on the basis of a European Commission adequacy decision, or subject to appropriate safeguards. Appropriate security measures for the protection of your personal information will be applied in those countries or territories, in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect personal information that we store from unauthorised disclosure, use, alteration, or destruction. Where appropriate, we use encryption and other technologies to secure the information you provide. We also restrict access and require that our service providers comply with data privacy and security requirements. Data transmission over public networks cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so you use the Site at your own risk
HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION
We will retain your personal information for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice. The period will vary depending on the purposes for which your personal information has been collected. When we no longer have a need to keep your information, we will delete or anonymize it. Note that we may need to keep certain personal information in some circumstances such as when you unsubscribe or opt out from a communication and we need to keep a record to ensure we do not communicate again or if we are legally required to retain your information.
YOUR RIGHTS CONCERNING YOUR INFORMATION
You may have the following rights with respect to your personal information:
• to request us to confirm whether or not we process any of your personal information, and, where we do, the right to access your information
• to request us to correct inaccurate or incomplete personal information
• to request us to erase your personal information, in certain circumstances (for example, where the information we hold is no longer necessary to the purposes for which we use it)

• to object to our use of your personal information in certain circumstances (for example, if we use information about you for direct marketing)
• to withdraw your consent to our use of your personal information going forward
• to data portability, in certain circumstances (where you have provided data to us and we use that data, by automated means)
• to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority in your country; you can find contact details for authorities in the EEA here [https://edpb.europa.eu/about-edpb/about-edpb/members_en]; if you have any such concerns, we request that you initially contact us at the email address below so that we can investigate, and hopefully resolve, your concerns
Any request to exercise one of these rights will be assessed by us on a case-by-case basis. There may be circumstances in which we are not legally required to comply with your request because of relevant legal exemptions or other reasons.
