4.10  We may provide your email information to third parties, so that such third parties may directly contact you about additional products and services, but only if (1) we have your prior consent to do so, or (2) we are using a third party to send targeted advertisements, using information about you such as an email address or site cookies, if you have opted in to receiving marketing communications and supplied us with your email address. To cease having your email information provided to third parties, you may do so by contacting us in the manner described in Section 20 or use the form on our PRIVACY OPTIONS page. However, even after opting-out, you may continue to receive marketing emails from third parties to whom we have already provided your email information. You will be responsible for directly contacting such third parties to request cessation of further marketing emails.

4.11  In some cases information that you provide to us by completing and submitting our online forms will be sent to a third-party service provider.

4.13  You should note that filing an infringement counter-claim to a Take Down notice filed for alleged copyright infringement under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) will result in disclosure of personal information when it is forwarded to the person who filed the infringement claim. See Section 21 of the Terms of Use for filing copyright infringement claims and counter claims involving United States copyright law, as well as Section 2 of the Terms of Use for non-DMCA alleged copyright infringement claims (those not subject to United States copyright law).

5. International transfers of your personal data

5.1    In this Section 5, we provide information about the circumstances in which your personal data may be transferred out of your local jurisdiction or region or to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA).

5.2    Inasmuch as the internet is a global environment, collecting and processing personal information may involve the transmission of this data internationally, including outside of the European Economic Area or your local jurisdiction. Information that we collect will be processed in the United States, and will be transferred for such processing to the United States, which does not have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the European Economic Area.

5.3    The hosting facilities for our website are situated in the United States. Although the European Commission has not made an “adequacy decision” with respect to the data protection laws of the United States, we have taken steps to ensure that reasonable and appropriate safeguards are in place to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected.

5.4    Emails and other electronic data stored by United States companies in data centers outside the United States may be subject to subpoena and discovery by United States law enforcement agencies in some cases, particularly where service providers store user data in various locations, some of which are in the United States and some of which are in countries outside the United States. In such cases, user files may be broken into component parts, with different parts of a single file stored in different locations (and, accordingly, different countries) at the same time, and they also may automatically move from one location to another as frequently as needed to optimize performance, reliability, and other efficiencies. To dispel the belief that a United States court may not issue and enforce an SCA (Stored Communications Act) warrant for the production of a customer’s electronic communications stored on servers outside the United States, the Cloud Act (Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data Act) was enacted on March 23, 2018 to allow such access to United States courts, except for customers who are not United States persons and do not reside in the United States.

5.5    You acknowledge that personal data that you submit for publication by email or through our website or services may be available, via the internet, around the world. We cannot prevent the use (or misuse) of such personal data by others.

5.6    You expressly agree that by communicating with us electronically or using our website or any of its functions and/or providing us with your personal and other information, you (a) agree and consent to the transfer, storage and/or processing of any personal and other information to and in the United States, (b) acknowledge that United States law may provide a lower standard of protection for personal data than the laws of your country or location and (c) understand that we shall collect, transfer, store, process and/or deal with your information in accordance with this policy and the laws of the United States. Consequently, to the fullest extent permitted by law, you hereby waive any claims relating to the transfer, processing and storage of your personal information or other information in accordance with this policy that may arise under the laws and regulations that apply to you in or of any other country or jurisdiction.

5.7    Our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use are only in the English language. If your country of residence or the location where you are accessing our website requires that our Privacy Policy and/or Terms of Use be translated into the language of such country or location in order to be binding, please exit our website and do not use any of its content, services or features; if you nevertheless continue to use our website under these circumstances, you will be deemed to have waived the requirements of your country of residence or location where you are accessing our website, and accordingly you agree that you willingly, voluntarily and irrevocably consent to be legally bound by the English version of our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

5.8    Although our website may be available worldwide, you understand and agree that the laws of your home jurisdiction may provide privacy and other protections not provided in the United States under federal or state laws, and that by visiting the website, you unequivocally agree to submit and adjudicate any disputes which arise out of such use pursuant to Section 27 (Governing law, jurisdiction and venue) of our Terms of Use.

5.9    IF YOU RESIDE IN THE EUROPEAN UNION, CANADA OR ANOTHER JURISDICTION WITH SIMILAR DATA TRANSFER REGULATIONS, BY USING THIS WEBSITE OR ANY OF ITS FEATURES, YOU EXPLICITLY CONSENT THAT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US MAY BE TRANSFERRED AND STORED IN COUNTRIES OUTSIDE THE EU, CANADA OR YOUR RESIDENT JURISDICTION, IN CONNECTION WITH OUR PRIVACY POLICY AND OUR TERMS OF USE, AND IN ORDER TO PROVIDE SERVICES TO YOU. IF YOU DO NOT CONSENT, PLEASE DO NOT PROVIDE US WITH ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION.

  1. Retaining and deleting personal data

6.1    This Section 6 sets out our data retention policies and procedure, which are designed to help ensure that we comply with our legal obligations in relation to the retention and deletion of personal data.

6.2    Personal data that we process for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those purposes.

6.3    We will retain your personal data as follows:

(a)    while you are featured or included in articles, interviews, endorsements or videos on our website;

(b)    if you or your employer are currently providing services to us;

(c)    if you or your employer are currently receiving services or technical support from us; and

(d)    if you are currently receiving email and marketing materials or newsletters from us.

6.4    In some cases it is not possible for us to specify in advance the periods for which your personal data will be retained. In such cases, we will determine the period of retention based on criteria which includes the following:

(a)    the period of retention of personal data will be determined based on various factors, including, among others, whether you are a current or former employee or job applicant, or whether inquiries or contract negotiations are ongoing or have come to a halt;

(b)    for such periods as are necessary in order to comply with provisions of contracts (with you or your employer) that require continuance after their termination; and

(c)    for such periods as are necessary to comply with legal, accounting or regulatory requirements, prevent fraud, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements and/or protect our legitimate interests.

6.5    Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Section 6, we may retain your personal data where such retention is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, or in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person.

  1. Security of personal data

7.1    We will take reasonable and appropriate technical and organizational precautions to secure your personal data and to prevent the loss, misuse, disclosure or alteration of your personal data. The following personal data will be stored by us in encrypted form: your name, contact information, and any password(s) or cardholder data. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet (or email or text message) is not completely secure, especially when sent unencrypted. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, due to the open nature of the internet any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures that we put in place for your protection.

7.2    You acknowledge that no method of transmitting information over the internet (or email or text message) or storing data is completely secure, even if encrypted, and we cannot guarantee the security of the transmission or storage of information or data. This is evidenced by the continuing efforts of hackers to defeat even the newest of security systems, as seen by the increased hacking into government websites and databases of major countries and corporations.

7.3    A password and user name (or email address) may be required to log in to certain parts of the website. You should ensure that your password is not susceptible to being guessed, whether by a person or a computer program. You are responsible for keeping the password confidential; we will not ask you for your password (except when you log in to certain parts of our website).

7.4    You should be aware that if you disclose personal data or other information on social media websites, including chat rooms, your profile page, blogs, forums or comment areas, third parties (including search engines) will be able to view, collect and use this information. You agree that we are not responsible for the disclosure of any information you post or disclose in this way or any use that may be made of such personal data or information by any third party.

7.5    Our website includes social media features to follow us online, such as the Facebook and Twitter. These features may collect information about your IP address and which page you are visiting on our website, and they may set a cookie to make sure the feature functions properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our website. We also maintain presences on social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn and You Tube. Any information, communications, or materials you submit to us via a social media platform is done at your own risk without any expectation of privacy. We cannot control the actions of other users of these platforms or the actions of the platforms themselves. Your interactions with those features and platforms are governed by the privacy and cookies policies of the companies that provide them. The information you allow us to access varies by social media website, and depends on the level of privacy settings you have in place at the social media website. You can control and find out more about these privacy settings at the applicable social media website.

7.6    Our website may include hyperlinks to other websites owned and operated by third parties, some of which may include our clients; such hyperlinks are for convenience and are not recommendations. We have not reviewed and have no control over the contents, including computer software or security features, made available through third-party websites, or webpages or their terms of use or cookies or privacy policies, and we accept no responsibility for them or their privacy practices or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them. The security of each third-party link cannot be guaranteed by us. However, clicking on the security icon to the left of the URL address (once a third-party link is clicked) may indicate the type of security, cookies in use, and other information, such as Location, Java Script, Flash, Popups, etc., depending on your browser, but the accuracy of this information cannot be guaranteed by us either.

  1. Amendments

8.1    We may update this policy from time to time by publishing a new version on our website.

8.2    The revised Privacy Policy will apply to the use of our website from the date of its publication on the website, and you hereby waive any right you may otherwise have to be notified of, or to consent to, revisions of the Privacy Policy. Your continued use of our website following the posting of an updated Privacy Policy or Terms of Use means that you agree to those changes.

8.3    You should check back frequently and regularly to read and ensure familiarity with the most current version of our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. If at any time our Privacy Policy and/or Terms of Use are no longer acceptable to you, please exit our website and do not use any of its content, services or features.

9.2    Your principal rights under data protection laws are:

(a)    the right to access;

That additional information includes details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your personal data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee. Requests should be sent to our Data Protection Manager at the address provided in Section 22.

9.4    You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.

9.6    In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue to store your personal data. However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.

9.7    You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

9.11  If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with the appropriate supervisory authority responsible for data protection, which may depend on your habitual residence, your citizenship, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.

9.12  To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.

9.13  You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by contacting the Data Protection Manager in the manner described in Section 22. In addition, any comments, complaints or questions concerning this policy or complaints or objections about our use of your personal information should be addressed to the Data Protection Manager.

  1. About cookies

14.1  Cookies are small files put on your computer or mobile device to store information about your preferences. Cookies can improve your browsing experience by allowing websites to remember your preferences or letting you avoid signing in each time you visit certain websites. However, some cookies may put your privacy at risk by tracking websites that you visit. More specifically, a cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

14.2  Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

14.3  Cookies may also be “analytics” cookies, “service” cookies or “third-party advertising and analytics” cookies: “analytics” cookies anonymously remember your computer or mobile device when you visit our website and keep track of browsing patterns in order to build up a profile of how visitors use our website; “service” cookies help us to make our website work as efficiently as possible and remember your registration and login details and settings preferences; “third-party advertising and analytics” cookies are placed within advertisements or elsewhere on our website by or on behalf of independent advertisers on our website, and are used for statistical purposes to count how many people—anonymously unidentified individuals—have seen their advertisements.

14.4  Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

  1. Managing cookies

17.1  Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies and to delete cookies, and in some cases alert you when a website is attempting to place a cookie on a computer. The methods for doing so vary from browser to browser, and from version to version. You can however obtain up-to-date information about blocking and deleting cookies via these links:

(a)    https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95647?hl=en (Chrome);

17.2  Blocking all cookies will have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.

  1. HTML5

Our website and certain third party services may also employ certain tracking technologies known as “HTML5,” to store content information and preferences, mainly for advertising purposes. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing or blocking such technologies.

  1. Do not track

Some web browsers may give you the ability to enable a “do not track” feature that sends signals to the websites you visit, indicating that you do not want your online activities tracked. This feature is different than blocking or deleting cookies, as browsers with a “do not track” feature enabled may still accept cookies. In the absence of industry standards, our website (like many others) does not recognize and respond to “do not track” signals.
