How we protect your privacy

We will process Personal Data in accordance with this Notice, as follows

  • Fairness: We will process Personal Data fairly. This means that we are transparent about how we process Personal Data and that we will process it in accordance with applicable law.
  • Lawfulness: We will process Personal Data only on lawful grounds.
  • Purpose limitation: We will process Personal Data for specified and legitimate purposes, and will not process it in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes, unless permitted by applicable data protection laws.
  • Data minimization: We will process Personal Data that is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary to achieve the purposes for which the data are processed.
  • Data accuracy: We take appropriate measures to ensure that the Personal Data that we hold about you is accurate, complete and, where necessary, kept up to date. However, it is also your responsibility to ensure that your Personal Data is kept as accurate, complete and current as possible by informing Calypso promptly of any changes or errors. You should notify us of any changes to the Personal Data that we hold about you (e.g. a change of address or contact person within the organisation that is a member of Calypso).
  • Data security: We use appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the Personal Data that we collect and process about you. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your Personal Data.
  • Limited Retention: We keep your Personal Data in a form that allows us to identify you for as long as necessary to achieve the purposes for which we are processing your data and do not store your data for longer, unless we must comply with applicable laws.

Data storage, retention and deletion

  • We retain Personal Data we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested, e.g. during your membership, or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).
  • When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Data, we will either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Data has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

International transfers of data

  • Your Personal Data 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 servers are located in the United Kindgom. In addition, our third party service providers operate in the United Kingdom or in another third country. This means that when we collect your Personal Data we may process it in any of these countries.
  • However, we have taken appropriate safeguards to require that your Personal Data will remain protected in accordance with this Notice. We transfer your data to adequate countries (United Kingdom). In addition, the safeguards include implementing the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers of Personal Data with our third-party service providers or having our services providers implementing these Clauses.
  • Further details can be provided upon request.

  • If we have collected and process your Personal Data 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 Data conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
  • 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.
