4 YOUR RIGHTS AND HOW YOU ARE PROTECTED BY US
4.1 What control you have over The Now Work’s use of your Personal Data?
You have the ability to review, change or remove your personal data contained on our database. You can change your personal data by logging into your account. You may change your personal data on your account at any time by editing your profile or by contacting us via email or the website.You may delete your account at any time – this will remove your profile from our systems and our related software..However, we may be required to store and to not delete such data (or that we may store such data for a certain period, though we will implement your request for deletion as soon as the mandatory storage period expires).
Your information will be stored by us for as long as your account is active or for as long as storage of your information is required for us to provide our services, prevent fraud or to meet our legal obligations or for arbitration or to fulfil our agreements.
In case of termination of the usage relationship, the data of the user will be regularly deleted from our network, except for inventory data insofar as it is required for the establishment or contents of or changes to the contractual relationship.
You have the right to revoke permission for the use, processing or transmission of your data by us at any time in writing or by email to email@example.com
We will delete any and all of your data stored by us. However, this shall not apply if this data is still needed for the implementation of a contractual relationship. Furthermore, we may process and/or use the user’s data if this is done as part of the object of a contractual relationship or a contract-like relationship based on trust and/or insofar as it is done to protect our justified interests and if, following a careful balancing of interests, no reason exists to believe that legitimate interests of user outweigh the exclusion of the processing and/or use of his data.
4.2 How The Now Work Protects Personal Data
We are concerned with keeping your data secure and protecting it from inappropriate disclosure. Any Personal Data collected by us is only accessible by a limited number of employees who have special access rights to such systems and are bound by obligations of confidentiality. If and when we use subcontractors to store your data, we will not relinquish control of your Personal Data or expose it to security risks that would not have arisen had the data remained in our possession. However, unfortunately no transmission of data over the internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under the control of The Now Work to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect your Personal Data, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any Personal Data you transmit to us. Any such transmission is done at your own risk. If you believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please contact us.
4.3 Opting Out Of Marketing Promotions
You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, we will continue to retain other Personal Data provided to us as a result of interactions with us not related to your marketing preferences.
4.4 How to Request your Data and the Process for Obtaining it
You will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, if your request is clearly unfounded, we could refuse to comply with your request. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure you have the right to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
5 YOUR DATA AND THIRD PARTIES
5.1 Will We Share Your Data With Third Parties?
5.2 Third-Party Links
6 HOW LONG WILL WE RETAIN YOUR DATA FOR?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
We keep contact information that you have indicated you are happy for us to have in order to keep you up to date with newsletters, our services and job opportunities, and will keep this information until such time as you indicate you no longer wish us to keep this data, or for seven years following your most recent active interaction with us (e.g. clicking a link on an email we send you, taking you to our site), whichever of these two is shorter.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see [Request erasure] below for further information.
