4. OUR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
We may disclose your Personal Information to any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries.
4.1 Aggregated Data
World Connect may share aggregated usage and log data collected from users of the Services with third parties for industry analysis and demographic profiling, but such aggregated data will not include any Personal Information.
4.2 Third Party Service Providers
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our provision of the Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, provide customer support, perform Service-related services (e.g., payment processing, maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of the Services' features) or to assist us in analysing how our Services are used. These third parties may have access to your Personal Information, but only to the extent needed to perform these tasks on our behalf. If you choose to purchase merchandise, products and/or services, or donate on or through any such third party companies, the information may be used by such third parties, each pursuant to its own policies. There are also times when you provide information about yourself to us in areas of the Service that may be managed or participated in by third parties. We may also provide your information to our advertisers, so that they can serve ads to you that meet your needs or match your interests. While we will seek to require such third parties to follow appropriate privacy policies and will not authorise them to use this information except for the express purpose for which it is provided, we do not bear any responsibility for any actions or policies of third parties.
4.3 Law Enforcement and Legal Purposes
World Connect cooperates with government and law enforcement officials, agencies and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials, agencies or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal processes (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of World Connect or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, an illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
World Connect may share information we collect from you, as needed, to enforce our rights or protect the rights of others, or as needed to support external auditing, compliance and corporate governance functions.
4.4 Business Transfers
5. ACCESSING, CORRECTION and DELETION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You have the ability to access and correct your personal information. You may access your personal information by signing into your account. From there, you can correct or modify your information. You may also exercise your rights, subject to applicable laws, to request that we correct, delete or restrict access to your personal data. We may need to retain your data for legally permitted purposes, as further described in Section 7. below, and this will be explained to you if necessary. We will provide data portability, which means you may also obtain your personal information from World Connect in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and reuse it elsewhere, or request that we transmit your Personal Information to another data controller.
If you need assistance correcting or updating your personal information, or would like to request that we delete your personal information, please contact us using the contact information detailed in the "Contact Us" section below.
In response to a request for you to exercise your rights, we may ask you to verify your, and to provide information that helps us to understand your request better. If we do not comply with your request, whether in whole or in part, we will explain why.
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 is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
6. OBJECTION TO AND RESTRICTION OF PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
You may ask World Connect to stop processing your Personal Information. We will stop processing unless we can demonstrate compelling legal grounds for the processing.
You can also request that we restrict our processing of your Personal Information. You may exercise this right at any time by emailing us at email@example.com.
7. RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
It is our policy to protect your account information against unauthorised access, use, loss or release and we have put in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to do so. However, we cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won't be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet, and any information you transmit to World Connect you do at your own risk. In order to protect you and your data, we may suspend your use of the Services without notice, to mitigate harm and facilitate an investigation, if a security breach is suspected. We will promptly notify you and all applicable regulators of a suspected breach where required by applicable law.
In addition, we have procedures that limit World Connect employees and contractors' access to Personal Information. Only those employees and contractors with a business reason to know have access to such information. We educate our employees about the importance of confidentiality and customer privacy through standard operating procedures, mandatory training programs, and internal policies on data privacy and corporate integrity. We take appropriate disciplinary measures to enforce employee privacy responsibilities.
9. DATA TRANSFER TO THE UNITED STATES
10. THIRD PARTY LINKS
We may provide links to third party websites, such as credit bureaus, service providers, social media websites and applications, or merchants ("Third Party Services"). A link to any Third Party Service does not mean that World Connect endorses it or the quality or accuracy of information presented on it. If you follow links to sites not affiliated or controlled by World Connect, you should review their privacy and security policies and other terms and conditions. World Connect does not guarantee and is not responsible for the privacy or security of these sites, including the accuracy, completeness, or reliability of their information.
12. RIGHT TO LODGE COMPLAINTS
We are transparent about the ways in which we collect and use personal information, and welcome your questions and concerns. If you have any concern or complaint about the way we handle your personal information, please contact us as described below.
