Under the GDPR individuals located in the EU have extra rights. Personal Information under the GDPR is referred to as ‘personal data’ and is defined as: “means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person” (Personal Data).
This Appendix sets out the additional rights we give to individuals located in the EU, including how we process Personal Data lawfully, transparently and fairly.
If you are an individual in the European Economic Area (EEA), we collect and process information about you only where we have legal bases for doing so under applicable EU laws. The legal bases depend on the Services you use and how you use them. This means we collect and use your information only where:
we need it to provide you the Services, including to operate the Services, provide customer support and personalized features and to protect the safety and security of the Services;
it satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote the Services and to protect our legal rights and interests;
you give us consent to do so for a specific purpose; or
we need to process your data to comply with a legal obligation.
If you have consented to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place.
Where we are using your information because we or a third party (e.g. your employer) have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use though, in some cases, this may mean no longer using the Services.
We will only retain your Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Data, the purposes for which we process your Personal Data, whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see ‘access, erasure and data portability’ below for further information.
In some circumstances we may anonymize your Personal Data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for analytics, research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this anonymized information indefinitely without further notice to you.
Objecting to processing: You have the right to object to processing of your Personal Data that is based on our legitimate interests or public interest. If this is done, we must provide compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which overrides your interests, rights and freedoms, in order to proceed with the processing of your Personal Data.
Restricting processing: You have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your Personal Data if (i) you are concerned about the accuracy of your Personal Data; (ii) you believe your Personal Data has been unlawfully processed; (iii) you need us to maintain the Personal Data solely for the purpose of a legal claim; or (iv) we are in the process of considering your objection in relation to processing on the basis of legitimate interests.
Access, erasure and data portability: You may have the right to request details of the Personal Data we hold about you, or to request that we erase the Personal Data we hold about you, or that we transfer this information to a third party.
Rectification: If you believe that any Personal Data we hold about you is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, please contact us using the details below. We will take reasonable steps to promptly correct any information found to be inaccurate, incomplete, misleading or out of date.
