- HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We value the trust you place in us.
We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access and against all other unlawful forms of processing.
The Personal Information you provide us with is stored on computer systems located in controlled facilities which can only be accessed by a limited number of persons who have a need to know in order to carry out their tasks and any services requested by you.
- YOUR CHOICES REGARDING DIRECT MARKETING
We may periodically send you free newsletters, surveys, offers, and other promotional materials related to our products and Services which we believe are useful for you, if you have consented (opted-in) to receive such messages via e-mail or any other electronic channel (where such opt-in is required under your local law).
If you do not wish to receive such communications anymore, you will always have the opportunity to “opt out” by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each of our direct marketing e-mails or by contacting us directly (please see our contact information at “how to contact us” below).
Where permitted under applicable law, we may send you service messages identifying any updates to our Privacy Notice (even where you have opted out of receiving marketing messages from us).
- YOUR RIGHTS
Depending on your location, you may have various rights in relation to your Personal Information. In particular, you may have the right to:
Request a copy of Personal Information we hold about you;
Ask that we restrict the way in which we use your Personal Information;
Ask that we update the Personal Information we hold about you, or correct any Personal Information that you think is incorrect or incomplete;
Ask that we delete Personal Information that we hold about you (the “right to be forgotten”);
Withdraw consent at any time for the future to our processing of your Personal Information (to the extent such processing is based on consent);
Object to our processing of your Personal Information (including for direct marketing purposes); or
Request your Personal Information be transferred to you or another data controller (the “data portability” right).
If you are unhappy with the way we have handled your Personal Information or any privacy query or request that you have raised with us, you have a right to complain to your local data protection regulator. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the regulator so please contact us in the first instance – details are provided in Section 13 below.
- HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will only retain your Personal Information as long as reasonably required for the purposes as set out in this Privacy Notice or otherwise to comply with legal or regulatory requirements applicable to us.
When your Personal Information is processed:
– For the performance of your contract with us, we retain your Personal Information for a period of 6 years following completion of a contractual order;
– For meeting, legal and regulatory requirements, we retain your Personal Information as it is set out by the applicable law; and
– In all other cases, we process your Personal Information, depending on the type, for up to 2 years from the date of our last interaction with you.
Our Sites are not directed towards children and we request that children below the age of 18 do not provide Personal Information through our Sites.
- TRANSFERS TO OTHER COUNTRIES
Your Personal Information may be transferred to and processed in other countries where laws governing the processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country (including jurisdictions outside the European Economic Area).
In such cases, where required by local law we will ensure that there are adequate safeguards in place to protect your Personal Information. Depending on the location of the MYO Plant Nutrition entity exporting the relevant Personal Information, this adequate safeguard might be a data transfer agreement with the recipient based on standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission. Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US. For further details, see European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield.
Where we are legally required to do so, further details of these transfers and copies of these agreements are available from us on request.
To the extent required and valid under your local law, you consent will be obtained for your Personal Information being transferred and processed this way.
