Protecting personal information

We use a variety of technical and organizational measures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, alteration or destruction consistent with applicable data protection laws. 


Individuals’ rights regarding their personal information

The GDPR and other applicable data protection laws provide certain rights for data subjects. The applicable laws will spell out your rights, but broadly speaking, you have, or may have, the right:

  • to request details of the information we hold about you and how we process it
  • to have your personal information rectified if it is inaccurate or deleted
  • to restrict our processing of your personal information
  • to withdraw a previously provided consent to processing of your personal information
  • to stop unauthorized transfers of your personal information to a third party
  • to have your personal information transferred to another person
  • to complain about our processing of your personal information to a supervisory authority 

It is important to be aware that these rights may not be absolute.  For example, if you withdraw your consent to our processing of your personal information, we may be able to continue to process your personal information to the extent required or otherwise permitted by law, in particular in connection with meeting our legal and regulatory obligations.  

Keeping personal information

We retain personal information of different types, or relating to different categories of people, for different periods, taking into account its business purpose. For example, information about individuals who have applied for employment with us will be retained for a shorter period than information about individuals who have actually worked for us. 

The periods for which we retain information are based on the requirements of applicable data protection laws and the purpose for which the information is collected and used.  We also take into account legal and regulatory provisions which require information to be retained for a minimum period.  We also consider best practices in our industry.
