SECURITY AND RETENTION
We implement commercially reasonable technical, administrative, and organisational measures to protect Personal Information both online and offline from loss, misuse, and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, email sent to or from us may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via the Service or via email. In addition, we are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Service, or third-party websites.
We’ll retain your Personal Information for only as long as we need in order to provide our Services to you, or for other legitimate business purposes such as resolving disputes, safety and security reasons, or complying with our legal obligations. How long we retain Personal Information will depend on a number of factors, such as the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure, our purpose for processing the information, and any legal requirements.
PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION, INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS AND SUB-PROCESSORS
By using our Service, you understand and acknowledge that your Personal Information will be processed and stored in our facilities and servers in the United Kingdom, United States of America and EEA and may be disclosed to our other service providers and affiliates in other jurisdictions.
Our legal bases for processing your Personal Information include:
Performance of a contract with you when we provide and maintain our Services. When we process Account Information, Content, and technical information solely to provide our Services to you, this information is necessary to be able to provide our Services. If you do not provide this information, we may not be able to provide our Services to you.
Our legitimate interests in protecting our Services from abuse, fraud, or security risks, or in developing, improving or promoting our Services. This may include the processing of Account Information, Content, Social Information, and technical information.
Your consent when we ask for your consent to process your Personal Information for a specific purpose that we communicate to you. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.
Compliance with our legal obligations when we use your Personal Information to comply with applicable law or when we protect our or our affiliates’, providers’, Albus Representatives’, users’, or third parties’ rights, safety, and property.
To support delivery of our Services, we may transfer Personal Information to third parties (each, a "Sub-processor") for processing and/or storing anywhere in the world, in jurisdictions which may have data protection laws that are different from the laws where you are located (and, in some cases, may not be as protective), and may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in those jurisdictions according to applicable laws. We endeavour to safeguard Personal Information in accordance with the requirements of applicable laws.
Specifically, all Personal Information we process is transferred to, processed, and stored in the United States, the United Kingdom and the EEA where our main servers are located.
Our Sub-processors page provides important information about the identity, location and role of each Sub-processor. This means that when we collect your Personal Information, we will process it in any of these countries.
Where we transfer Personal Information to countries and territories outside of the EEA, Switzerland and the UK, which have been formally recognised as providing an adequate level of protection for Personal Information, we will endeavour to rely on the relevant “adequacy decisions” and “adequacy regulations” from the European Commission, Swiss and UK authorities.
