        3.12  Please do not supply any other person's personal data to me unless I prompt you to do so.

 

Providing your personal data to others

        4.1    I may disclose your personal data to my insurers and/or professional advisers insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes of 
                 obtaining or maintaining insurance coverage, managing risks, obtaining professional advice, or the establishment, exercise or

International transfers of your personal data

        5.1    In this Section 5, I provide information about the circumstances in which your personal data may be transferred to [countries outside
                  the European Economic Area (EEA)].

        5.2    The hosting facilities for my website are provided by Wix: “Wix.com Ltd. is an Israeli software company, providing cloud-based web
                 development services. It allows users to create HTML5 websites and mobile sites through the use of online drag and drop tools.
                 Along with its headquarters and other offices in Israel, Wix also has offices in Brazil, Canada, Germany, India, Ireland, Lithuania, the
                 United States, and Ukraine”. The European Commission has made an "adequacy decision" with respect to the data protection laws
                 of each of these countries. Transfers to each of these countries will be protected by appropriate safeguards, namely the use of
                 standard data protection clauses adopted or approved by the European Commission.

        5.3    You acknowledge that personal data that you submit for publication through my website or services may be available, via the internet,
                 around the world. I cannot prevent the use (or misuse) of such personal data by others.

 

Retaining and deleting personal data

         6.1    This Section 6 sets out my data retention policies and procedure, which are designed to help ensure that I comply with my legal
                  obligations in relation to the retention and deletion of personal data.

         6.2    Personal data that I process for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those
                  purposes.

         6.3   In some cases it is not possible for me to specify in advance the periods for which your personal data will be retained. In such cases,
                 the period of retention of name, email address, telephone numbers, will be determined based on our ongoing working relationship,
                 and/ or your consent.
        6.4    Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Section 6, I may retain your personal data where such retention is necessary for
                 compliance with a legal obligation to which I are subject, or in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another
                 natural person.

Amendments

        7.1    I may update this policy from time to time by publishing a new version on my website.

        7.2    You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes to this policy.

        7.3    I may notify you of significant changes to this policy by email.

 

Your rights

        8.1    In this Section 8, I have summarised the rights that you have under data protection law. Some of the rights are complex, and not all
                 of the details have been included in my summaries. Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory
                 authorities for a full explanation of these rights.

        8.2    Your principal rights under data protection law are:

                 (a)    the right to access;

                 (b)    the right to rectification;

                 (c)    the right to erasure;

                 (d)    the right to restrict processing;

                 (e)    the right to object to processing;

                 (f)     the right to data portability;

                 (g)    the right to complain to a supervisory authority; and

                 (h)    the right to withdraw consent.

        8.3    You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not I process your personal data and, where I do, access to the personal data,
                 together with certain additional information. That additional information includes details of the purposes of the processing, the
                 categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not
                 affected, I will supply to you a copy of your personal data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may
                 be subject to a reasonable fee. Please contact me to proceed.

        8.4    You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing,
                 to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.

        8.5    In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your personal data without undue delay. Those circumstances include:
                 the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you 
                 withdraw consent to consent-based processing; you object to the processing under certain rules of applicable data protection law;
                 the processing is for direct marketing purposes; and the personal data have been unlawfully processed. However, there are exclusions
                of the right to erasure. The general exclusions include where processing is necessary: for exercising the right of freedom of expression
                 and information; for compliance with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

       8.6     In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Those circumstances are: you contest the
                 accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; I no longer need the personal data for the purposes of
                 my processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; and you have objected to
                 processing, pending the verification of that objection. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, I may continue to store
                 your personal data. However, I will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal
                 claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.

        8.7    You have the right to object to my processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the
                 extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public
                 interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in me; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by me or by a third
                 party. If you make such an objection, I will cease to process the personal information unless I can demonstrate compelling legitimate
                 grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or
                 defence of legal claims.

        8.8    You have the right to object to my processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct
                 marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, I will cease to process your personal data for this purpose.

        8.9    You have the right to object to my processing of your personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes
                 on grounds relating to your particular situation, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons
                 of public interest.

        8.10  To the extent that the legal basis for my processing of your personal data is:

                 (a)    consent; or

                 (b)    that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party or in order to take steps at your request
                         prior to entering into a contract, and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your
                         personal data from me in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where
                         it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

        8.11  If you consider that my processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a
                  complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual
                  residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.

        8.12  To the extent that the legal basis for my processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent
                  at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.

        8.13  You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by written notice to me.
