WHO WE DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION TO
We work with third parties to help manage our business and deliver services. We and our service providers (as defined below) disclose and share your personal data:
- Among Caretower and our Affiliates;
- To third party service providers (“Service Providers”) that perform services for us or on our behalf (including those which may process job applicant information, host investor relations content, provide courier services, help manage our IT and back office systems, or distribute marketing materials ). Such service providers are required under their contract with us, to handle your personal data in accordance with applicable laws and principles related to privacy and data protection;
- For credit card payments we employ a third party to process these payments on our behalf. This third party will only have access to the personal data required to process the credit card transaction;
- To a third party in connection with a proposed or actual sale, merger, or transfer of all or a portion of a business or division; and
- To other persons where we are under a legal obligation to disclose your personal data, and only as permitted or required by applicable law or regulation. Such disclosure could be made to courts, to respond to lawful requests by public authorities, regulators and law enforcement agencies in the European Union and around the world or to protect and defend our rights or property.
Any access to such information will be limited to the purpose for which such information was provided to us or our service providers, as explained in the "How we use the information we collect" section above.
Caretower offices and service providers are located throughout the world. Accordingly, your personal data may be sent to countries which have different levels of data protection laws than your country of residence. For instance, if you need IT security equipment installed in the US, we will forward your information to our appropriate business partner as part of the installation. We may also make other disclosures of your personal data overseas, for example if we receive a legal or regulatory request from a foreign law enforcement body. Caretower complies with all applicable laws before transferring personal data to a recipient in a country with data protection laws that do not have a data protection standard equivalent to the laws where you live.
We will always take steps to ensure that any international transfer of information is carefully managed to protect your rights and interests:
- We will only transfer your personal data to countries which are recognised as providing an adequate level of legal protection or where we can be satisfied that alternative arrangements are in place to protect your privacy rights,
- Transfers between Caretower and its Affiliates will be covered by intra-group data transfer agreements which give specific contractual protections designed to ensure that your personal data receives an adequate and consistent level of protection wherever it is transferred within Caretower.
- Transfers to service providers and other third parties will always be protected by contractual commitments and where appropriate further assurances, such as certification schemes such as Privacy Shield.
- Any requests for information we receive from law enforcement or regulators will be carefully checked before personal data is disclosed
We will, on request, provide you with further details regarding the categories of recipient of your personal data and the countries to which it may be transferred. You have the right to ask us for more information about the safeguards we have put in place as mentioned above. Contact us as set out in “Contact Us” Section if you would like further information.
HOW WE PROTECT AND STORE YOUR INFORMATION
We take the security of the information we collect seriously. We have implemented and we maintain technical and organisational security measures, policies and procedures intended to reduce the risk of accidental destruction or loss, or the unauthorised disclosure or access to such information appropriate to the nature of the data concerned. Some of the steps we take are: placing confidentiality requirements on our staff members and service providers; destroying or permanently anonymising personal data if it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected.
RETENTION OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We will retain your personal data for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, as explained in this notice. In some circumstances it may be retained for longer periods of time, for instance where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, regulatory, tax or accounting requirements.
In specific circumstances we may retain your personal data for longer periods of time so that we have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the event of any complaints or challenges, or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation relating to your personal data or dealings.
Where we have obtained your personal data in order to provide you with marketing information for our services, it will be stored by us only as long as you do not change your mind to receive such materials from Caretower. In order to avoid future contact with you for marketing purposes, we maintain a marketing suppression list which we apply to records in our care. Where your personal data is no longer required we will ensure that it is securely deleted.
