Selling Information. We do not receive payment for any Personal Data. However, some laws define ‘sale’ broadly to include the sharing of Personal Data in exchange for anything of value.

If you would like to opt-out of the sale of your Personal Data you can opt-out of Analytics/Performance or Targeting cookies on our Sites or write to us directly.

(i) What is the legal basis of processing?

Some jurisdictions require an explanation of the legal basis for the collection and processing of Personal Data. We have several different legal grounds on which we collect and process Personal Data, including, without limitation: (a) as necessary to perform a transaction or contractual obligation (such as in order to provide the products and services you requested); (b) as necessary to comply with a legal obligation (such as when we use Personal Data for record keeping to substantiate tax liability); (c) consent (where you have provided consent as appropriate under applicable law, such as for direct marketing or certain cookies); and (d) necessary for legitimate interests (such as when we act to maintain our business generally, including maintaining the safety and security of the Site).

(ii) What are the consequences of not providing Personal Data?

You are not required to provide all Personal Data identified in this Privacy Statement to use our Site or to interact with us offline, but certain functionality will not be available if you do not provide certain Personal Data. If you do not provide certain Personal Data, we may not be able to respond to your request, perform a transaction with you or provide you with marketing that we believe you would find valuable.

We do not use automated decision-making without human intervention, including profiling, in a way that produces legal effects concerning you or otherwise significantly affects you.

(iv) Does the Site honour Do Not Track (‘DNT’) signals sent via browsers?

Given the divergent practices of organisations that offer browsers and the lack of a standard in the marketplace, we do not respond to DNT signals at this time.

We typically retain Personal Data related to marketing activities for as long as you accept marketing communications from us, and upon request we will securely delete such data in accordance with applicable law. For Personal Data that we collect and process for other purposes described above, we typically retain such Personal Data for no longer than for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Privacy Statement and as otherwise needed to address tax, corporate, compliance, litigation and other legal rights and obligations.

(vii) Do we process ‘Sensitive Information’?

There are several definitions of Sensitive Information.
