SUPPLEMENTAL EUROPEAN PRIVACY STATEMENT

As of May 25, 2018, European Union Regulation 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (“EU GDPR”), requires us as the data controller of the Online Services to provide additional and different information about our data processing practices to data subjects in the European Economic Area (“EEA”). If you are accessing our Online Services from a member state of the EEA, this Supplemental European Privacy Statement applies to you in addition to the Privacy Policy above.

Cookies. With respect to web cookies and similar technologies that are not strictly necessary for our provision of the Online Services, Assured DP seeks consent from users of the Service in the EEA based on a separate Cookies Policy.

Legal Basis of Processing. The legal basis for Assured DP’s processing of your personal data in connection with our Online Services is Article 6(1)(b) of the EU GDPR, which allows processing of personal data as necessary for the performance of a contract. When you access, use or register for our Online Services, you form a contract with Assured DP based on the applicable terms of service, and we need to process your personal data to respond to your requests, provide our Online Services and satisfy our obligations with respect to the other purposes listed in the Privacy Policy above.

Assured DP also relies on your consent with respect to cookies that are not strict necessary and direct marketing emails per Article 6(1)(a) of the EU GDPR; and pursues legitimate interests under Article 6(1)(f) of the EU GDPR with respect to situations where Assured DP needs to process your personal data to comply with applicable laws provide good customer service or improve our products and services. In these cases, we will ensure that your privacy and other fundamental interests do not override our legitimate interests.

Data Retention. Assured DP keeps personal data as long as required to provide our Online Services to you and comply with applicable laws. For example, if you register for an account on the Online Services, we retain your personal data for as long as you have an account with us and then for only as long as required for us to comply with applicable laws, discharge our contractual obligations to you, or defend our legal interests in connection with any claim or defense we could face before any formal dispute resolution body. We take reasonable measures to ensure that personal data is deleted, erased or anonymised as soon as possible once the purposes for which personal data was collected have been fulfillled. 

Data Subject Rights. You have a right to request from Assured DP access to and rectification or erasure of your personal data. You also have the right to request the restriction of processing concerning you, in which case such personal data would be marked and processed by us only for certain purposes. In addition, you have the right to data portability, which allows you to receive from us personal data about you which you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and the right to transmit such personal data to another entity without hindrance from us.

You also have the right to object to various data processing activities, including processing activities that are based exclusively on your consent or processing for the purposes of direct marketing. You can exercise such rights by accessing the information in your account and/or by emailing [email protected] Please note that these rights may be subject to limitations and conditions under the EU GDPR or applicable national data protection laws.

If you have provided consent for cookies that are not strictly necessary or other data processing, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

Your Choices. You are not required to provide any personal data to Assured DP, but if you do not provide any personal data to Assured DP, you may not be able to use our Online Services or conduct business with us effectively. You can use our Online Services without consenting to cookies that are not strictly necessary; the only consequence is that our Online Services will be less tailored to you.

Profiling. Assured DP does not use in connection with our Online Services automated decision-making in a way that produces legal effects concerning you or which significantly affects you.
