We provide these options for your benefit and we will never discriminate against

Data Retention
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
unauthorized 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.

Your Legal Rights
Under certain circumstances, you may have rights under applicable data protection
laws in relation to your personal data. You have the right to:

Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access
request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about
you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you
to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we
may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

Limit processing of your personal data 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 as you feel it impacts
on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where
we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases,
we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your
information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us
to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you
want us to establish the data's accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful
but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we
no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d)
you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have
overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your
personal data. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain
products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you
withdraw your consent.
