The meaning of Personal Data
“Personal Data” is defined in data protection laws applicable in your country. It includes any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This means any individual who can be identified directly or indirectly by reference to an identifier such as name, identification number, location data, online identifiers (for example, IP addresses – if they can be used to identify you) or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Put simply, this includes data which either by itself or with other data held by us or available to us, can be used to identify you.
Important notice about international transfers
Due to the global nature of our business, your Personal Data will be stored and transferred to parties located in other countries, including outside the European Economic Area. These other countries will either have different data protection laws than your country of residence or they will not have data protection laws. They may not be deemed by the European Commission as providing adequate protection for Personal Data.
In particular, we store your Personal Data on servers in the United States of America. The US are not deemed by the European Commission to have adequate protections for Personal Data. Steps will be taken to put in place safeguards (including around security) to protect your Personal Data when it is in these other countries. This may include the use of European Model Clause contracts, where required under applicable law. You can find out what these are online at the following address: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/transfer/index_en.htm.

We may convert your Personal Data into statistical or aggregated data in such a way as to ensure that you are not identified or identifiable from that data. We may use this aggregated data to conduct market research and analysis, including producing statistical research and reports.

In particular, we endeavour to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, including as appropriate: (a) pseudonymisation (such as where data is separated from direct identifiers so that linkage to an identity is not possible without additional information that is held separately) and encryption, (b) ensuring the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of systems and services used to process your Personal Data, (c) ensuring the ability to restore the availability and access to Personal Data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident; and (d) ensuring a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational security measures.
