How do we protect your personal data?

We take appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data from unauthorized access, use,
or disclosure. Some of the measures that we use include:

  • Encryption, which means that we use secure protocols and algorithms to encrypt your personal data when it is stored or transmitted.

  • Firewalls and antivirus software, which means that we use software and hardware devices to prevent unauthorized access or attacks to our systems and networks.
  • Backup and recovery, which means that we regularly backup our data and have procedures in place to restore it in case of a loss or damage.

However, please note that no method of transmission or storage is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal data. You are responsible for keeping your password and account details confidential and for notifying us immediately if you suspect any unauthorized access or use of your account.

How long do we keep your personal data?

We only keep your personal data for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or as required by law. The retention period may vary depending on the type of data and the legal obligations that apply to us. When we no longer need your personal data, we will delete it or anonymize it so that it can no longer be linked to you.

What are your rights regarding your personal data?

You have certain rights regarding your personal data under the data protection law, such as:

  • The right to access, which means that you can request a copy of the personal data that we hold about you and check that we are processing it lawfully.
  • The right to rectification, which means that you can request us to correct any inaccurate or incomplete personal data that we hold about you.
  • The right to erasure, which means that you can request us to delete or remove your personal data when there is no good reason for us to continue processing it.
  • The right to restrict processing, which means that you can request us to suspend the processing of your personal data in certain situations, such as when you want us to verify its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • The right to data portability, which means that you can request us to transfer your personal data to another organisation or to you in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format.
  • The right to object, which means that you can object to us processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes or for our legitimate interests, unless we have compelling reasons to override your interests, rights, and freedoms.
  • The right to withdraw consent, which means that you can withdraw your consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. This will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent.
  • The right to lodge a complaint, which means that you can lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Commission if you are unhappy with how we handle your personal data.

If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us. We may ask you to provide proof of your identity and some information about your request. We will respond to your request within one month, unless it is complex or we have multiple requests, in which case we may extend the response time by another two months. We will inform you of any extension and the reasons for it. We will not charge you any fee for exercising your rights, unless your request is manifestly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive, in which case we may charge a reasonable fee or refuse to act on your request.

Non-Personal Data 

Like most websites, we gather statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate basis from all visitors to our website.

We may provide non-personal data to third parties, where such information is combined with similar information of other users of our website. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of unique users who visit our website, the demographic breakdown of the community users of our website, or the activities that visitors to our website engage in while on our website. The third parties to whom we may provide this information may include potential or actual advertisers, providers of advertising services (including website tracking services), commercial partners, sponsors, licensees, researchers, and other similar parties.
