WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON'T PROVIDE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
If you choose to limit the information you provide to us (or, in some circumstances, provide no personal data at all) then we may be unable to provide you with the products, services or information you have expressed an interest in, or which we have a contract to provide to you. We may also be unable to provide you with access to some or all of our Sites (or their functionality).
Securing Your Personal data
We have implemented methods designed to secure your personal data from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our Sites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone. Unfortunately, however, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Site; any transmission is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures deployed on the Sites or Services.
Retaining Your Personal data
We will retain your personal data for the entire time that you keep your account open. After you close your account, we will take steps to ensure that the personal data that we hold about you is retained for only as long as it is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected or any legal requirement. We apply criteria to determine the appropriate retention period for different categories of personal data that we hold about you. For example, we will keep information necessary to protect us in a legal claim up to 7 years after termination of the contract. After this period it will be deleted to the extent reasonably possible, and in compliance with our data retention policies. We will keep data that has been aggregated or otherwise rendered anonymous in such a manner that you are no longer identifiable indefinitely.
