(5.2) All information you provide to us is stored on our or our subcontractors’ secure servers and accessed and used subject to our security policies and standards. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential and for complying with any other security procedures of which we notify you. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Export to Japan
(5.3) Your personal information may be accessed by staff in, transferred to, and/or stored in, Japan.
(5.4) We will either ask for your consent for the transfer to Japan, or transfer it subject to European Commission approved contractual terms that impose equivalent data protection obligations directly on the recipient unless we are permitted under applicable data protection law to make such transfers without such formalities. Please contact us as set out in paragraph 6 below if you would like to see a copy of the specific safeguards applied to the export of your personal information.
(5.5) We will retain your personal information for as long as is necessary for the processing purpose(s) for which they were collected and any other permitted linked purpose. So if information is used for two purposes we will retain it until the purpose with the latest period expires; but we will stop using it for the purpose with a shorter period once that period expires.
(5.6) We restrict access to your personal information to those persons who need to use it for the relevant purpose(s). Our retention periods are based on the objectives of the Foundation and your information that is no longer needed is either irreversibly anonymised (in which case we will retain the anonymised information) or securely destroyed. By way of example:
(a) use to perform a contract: in relation to your personal information used to perform any contractual obligation with you, we will generally retain that personal information whilst the contract remains in force plus a further 6 years to deal with any queries or claims thereafter; and
(b) where claims are contemplated: in relation to any information where we reasonably believe it will be necessary to defend or prosecute or make a claim against you, us or a third party, we may retain that information for as long as that claim could be pursued.
