If this is the case we will inform you.

WHO DOES LAZIX SHARE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH?

We may disclose your personal information to the following categories of recipients:

  • to our group companies, affiliates, third party services providers, and partners who participate in the processing of your personal data (for example, to support our marketing activities, or help to enhance the security of our Website), or who otherwise process personal information for purposes that are described in this Privacy Notice or notified to you when we collect your personal information.

  • to any competent law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party where we believe disclosure is necessary (i) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (ii) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights, or (iii) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person;

  • to an actual or potential buyer (and its agents and advisers) in connection with any actual or proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of any part of our business, provided that we inform the buyer it must use your personal information only for the purposes disclosed in this Privacy Notice;

LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING PERSONAL INFORMATION

Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

However, we will normally collect personal information from you only (i) where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights, (ii) where we have your consent to do so or (iii) when we have a legal obligation.

If we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), this interest will normally be to operate our business, and communicate with you as necessary to provide our services and for our legitimate commercial interests, for instance, when responding to your queries, improving our services or Website, undertaking business to business marketing, or for the purposes of detecting or preventing illegal activities.

If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us using the contact details provided under the “How to contact us” heading below.

COOKIES AND SIMILAR TRACKING TECHNOLOGY

We use cookies and similar tracking technology (collectively, “Cookies”) to collect and use personal information about you.  For further information about the types of Cookies we use, why, and how you can control Cookies, please see our Cookie Management section of the website.

HOW DOES LAZIX KEEP MY PERSONAL INFORMATION SECURE?

LAZIX is committed to ensuring that your personal information remains secure and confidential. To this end, we have put appropriate technical and organizational measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse, alteration, and deletion of your personal information. These measures ensure a level of security that is appropriate to the level of sensitivity of the processed information and to the level of risk given our use of such information.

INTERNATIONAL DATA TRANSFERS

Your personal information may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident.  These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country (and, in some cases, may not be as protective).


Specifically, our Website servers are located in the US, and our group companies and third-party service providers and partners operate around the world.  This means that when we collect your personal information we may process it in any of these countries.


However, LAZIX has put appropriate safeguards in place to require that your personal information will remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Notice and applicable data protection law. These include implementing the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers of personal information between our group companies, which require all group companies to protect personal information they process from the EEA in accordance with European Union data protection law. We have also implemented similar appropriate safeguards with our third party service providers and partners.

DATA RETENTION

We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide our services, to manage our relationship with your employer, or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements); and in accordance with relevant statutory limitation periods.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information (or no legal obligation to retain it), we will either delete or anonymise it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

YOUR DATA PROTECTION RIGHTS

You have the following data protection rights:

  • If you wish to access, correct, update or request deletion of your personal information, you can do so at any time by contacting us using the contact details provided under the “How to contact us” heading below.

  • In addition, you can object to processing of your personal information, ask us to restrict processing of your personal information or request portability of your personal information. Again, you can exercise these rights by contacting us using the contact details provided under the “How to contact us” heading below.

  • You have the right to opt-out of marketing communications we send you at any time. You can exercise this right by clicking on the “unsubscribe” or “opt-out” link in the marketing e-mails we send you.

  • Similarly, if we have collected and process your personal information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.

  • You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection and use of your personal information. For more information, please contact your local data protection authority. Contact details for data protection authorities in the European Economic Area are available here.


We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.

UPDATES TO THIS PRIVACY NOTICE

We may update this Privacy Notice from time to time in response to changing legal, technical, or business developments. When we update our Privacy Notice, we will take appropriate measures to inform you, consistent with the significance of the changes we make.
