Your personal data may be transferred, processed and stored in the United Kingdom, United States, Belgium and other countries. We may also process information using cloud services. These countries may have different data protection and privacy laws to the laws of your country and may provide a different level of protection than in your jurisdiction, however Ravelin takes the necessary steps to ensure that your data is always processed in accordance with this Policy and in line with the requirements of applicable law.
If you are a resident in the EEA, UK or Switzerland, we will protect your personal data when it is transferred out of your jurisdiction by ensuring that the third party receiving the data is either based in a territory which has an adequate level of protection as determined by the relevant authority or using appropriate safeguards to protect your personal data, such as standard contractual clauses.
We will retain your personal data where we have an ongoing legitimate legal reason to keep it and for a length of time consistent with the original purpose it was collected for. The appropriate retention period for personal data will depend on a number of factors including, the reason why it was collected, the amount, nature and sensitivity of the data. We will also consider any applicable legal requirements in relation to data retention.
After data is no longer required for the purpose it was collected for or where you have requested for us to delete the data that we hold about you (unless it is still required to be kept by us and a valid exemption applies), we will either delete or anonymise your personal data. If this is not possible (for example, where the data has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until it is possible to delete it.
Depending on where you are a resident, you may have certain rights in relation to the personal data which is held about you. Subject to legal limitations and exemptions that may apply, you may have the right to:
Access the personal data we hold about you (a “data subject access request”).
Correct incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you.
Ask us to erase the personal data we hold about you.
Ask us to restrict the handling of your personal information.
Ask us to transfer your personal information to a third party.
Object to how we are using your personal information.
Details on how to contact us to exercise any of these rights can be found below in the Exercising Your Rights section of this Policy .
Residents of the EEA, UK or Switzerland
If we have collected and processed your personal information with your consent for a specific purpose, you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing which occurred prior to your withdrawal and it will not affect the processing of your personal data on lawful grounds other than consent. To withdraw your consent, all you need to do is follow the instructions in the Exercising Your Rights section of this Policy.
You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection or use of your personal data. You can contact your local data protection authority for more information. The contact details for the data protection authorities for residents in:
EEA jurisdictions are available here;
the UK are available here; and
Switzerland is available here.
Residents of California
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your rights and explains how to exercise them.
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the previous 12 months ("right to know"). Once we receive your request and confirm your identity (see Exercising Your Rights), we will disclose to you:
The categories of personal information we collected about you.
The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you.
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we have collected and retained (the "right to delete"), subject to certain exemptions. Once we receive your request and confirm your identity (see Exercising Your Rights), we will review your request to see if an exemption allowing us to retain the information applies. We may deny your deletion request if an exemption applies and retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s), for example to detect fraudulent activity or comply with a legal obligation.
You may authorise an agent to submit a request to us on your behalf. Please note that before completing any requests, and in addition to our identification verification process, we will need to verify that your agent has been properly authorised to request information on your behalf which means it may take longer to complete your request.
We will delete or de-identify personal information not subject to an exemption from our records and will direct our service providers to take similar action.
We do not “sell” information, as sales are defined under applicable laws. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.
To exercise any of the rights or options described above, please submit a request to us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The request should include your contact information and describe your request in enough detail to allow us to understand, evaluate, and respond to it. You should provide sufficient information that allows us to verify that you are the person about whom we collected the personal data or that demonstrates you are a properly appointed representative. We may need to request additional information in order to verify your identity and we will not be able to honor a request if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request.
We will respond to all requests we receive from data subjects wishing to exercise their rights and treat each request according to the requirements of the applicable jurisdiction.
We may update this Policy from time to time in response to changing legal, technical or business developments. Any changes we make to this Policy in the future will be posted on this page and if necessary, notified to you.
