Information sharing and disclosure
Tech InsideOut may share your personal information with other companies or people under any of the following circumstances:
when we have your consent to share the information;
we need to send the information to third parties who work on behalf of Tech InsideOut to provide you with a customer service or promotional or informational materials (we will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose);
in the event of sale or transfer of all or substantially all of Tech InsideOut or any Tech InsideOut affiliate’s shares or assets, in cases of mergers or in case of negotiations with respect to the foregoing;
to our service providers and subcontractors in order to keep you up to date on any information we think you would like to hear about either from us or from our business partners (unless you have opted out of these types of communications), subject to your opt-in consent to such processing activities; or
Where needed for corporate audits or to investigate or respond to a complaint or security threat, to prevent illegal uses of our services, to defend ourselves against third party claims and assist in fraud prevention or investigation.
We will also disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, or in urgent circumstances, to protect personal safety, the public or our website.
We will not sell or otherwise transfer the personally identifiable information you provide to us at our Websites to any third parties for their own direct marketing use unless we provide clear notice to you and obtain your explicit consent for your data to be shared in this manner.
For the above purposes, personal information may be transferred to recipients in countries around the world (which may be located outside the EU/EEA) which in some cases may have a lower level of protection than that within the EU/EEA. When transferring personal data to countries outside the EU/EEA, to jurisdictions that did not receive an adequacy decision by the European Commission, we use standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission to ensure a sufficient level of protection for your personal information. The standard contractual clauses can be found via the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/transfer/index_en.htm.
Tech InsideOut stores the personal information as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which the data has been collected. This means that Tech InsideOut deletes your personal information when such information is no longer necessary, unless we have a legitimate interest to retain such data for longer periods or are required to do so by any applicable law. Statistics which has been anonymised may be saved thereafter. [Please confirm that such retention policies are in place]
Data Subject Rights
If you are a resident of the EU/EEA, you may at any time request the rectification or erasure of your personal information. Please note however that deletion could mean that Tech InsideOut cannot process your requests or provide you any requested services. You have the right to request a copy of your personal information from our record. You have the right to request a limitation of the use of your personal information (for example if you deem the information to be incorrect) or the termination of use of your personal information (for example as regards the use of the information to improve our services).
If you have a Tech InsideOut account, you can opt-out of receiving marketing communications by modifying your preferences in the “view or change my profile” section of our website. You can also opt-out by modifying your email or SMS subscriptions by clicking on the unsubscribe link or following the opt-out instructions included in the message.
