We may receive information about you from publicly and commercially available sources, as permitted by law, which we may combine with other information we receive from or about you.

Accuracy of Personal Information


While we take various steps to ensure the accuracy and completeness of your personal information, we rely upon you to provide accurate and complete Information when interacting with us.


Your Rights in Connection with Your Personal Information


If you are in the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, under certain circumstances, and as required by applicable law you have the right to:


  • Request access to your personal information. This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you.
  • Request correction of any incomplete or inaccurate personal information that we hold about you.
  • Request erasure of your personal information when there is no need for us continuing to process it or you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground.
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information to suspend the processing, for example if you want us to verify its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.

If you want to exercise any of these rights, please contact the Data Protection Officer in writing per the ‘Where to turn with questions’ section of this Policy. Valid requests will be honoured within 30 calendar days of request. This 30-day period may be extended for another 2 months for complex requests with notification of the reasons for the extension to you. Any such requests should be submitted using the information listed in the Contact Information section.


You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances. In addition, there may be requests that we are unable to process because of other EU/EEA/Swiss legal requirements.  If a request is denied, we will notify you of the reason.


We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.


If you are located in the EU, EEA or Switzerland you have the right to lodge a complaint with an EU Supervisory Authority. However, if you have a complaint regarding the processing of your personal information, we request that you first contact us and we will reply on timely basis.


If you have a rights request, please contact us using the information in the “Contact Information” section of this Privacy Policy.
