other members of the Lighthouse Group
with companies that provide services to Lighthouse
with other third-party service providers that have integrated with our products and services.
International transfers of personal data
We share your personal data within the Lighthouse Group. This may involve transferring your data outside the UK, European Economic Area or Switzerland. Many of our external third parties are based outside of these jurisdictions so their processing of your personal data will involve a data transfer outside of these jurisdictions.
Lighthouse complies with laws on the transfer of personal information between countries to keep your personal information protected, wherever it may be. Any transfer of personal data to a third country, which means outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, shall be subject to one of the following safeguards:
an adequacy decision by the European Commission (if any); or
a data transfer agreement, which shall contain the standard contractual clauses, as referred to in the 'European Commission decision of 5 February 2010 (Decision 2010/87/EC); or
binding corporate rules, as implemented by Lighthouse.
Whenever we transfer your personal data outside of the jurisdictions mentioned above we ensure a similar degree of protection afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
We will aim to only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data.
Where we use providers or provide Services in the US we may transfer data to the US. In such an event we will ensure that they provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US for example through standard contractual clauses as provided by the European Commission.
We have implemented several appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal information. We limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be linked to you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
Your legal rights
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out below, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You have the right to:
Request access to your personal data ( a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to confirm that we are lawfully processing it.
Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:
If you want us to establish the data’s accuracy.
Where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it.
Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
You have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
No fee usually required. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (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 may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
What we may need from you. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
Time limit for response. We engage ourselves to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. In case your request is of a complex nature we will keep you informed on the status of your request and the estimated time for response.
If you have any questions or concerns about this policy or our privacy practices, you may email us at email@example.com.
Changes to this Policy
We reserve the right to make changes to this Policy. In the event that these changes affect our obligations, or your rights, we will inform you about the changes in advance.
