3.1 We may disclose your Personal Data to the following categories of recipients:

(a) to our group companies for purposes consistent with this Policy, and in particular, so that they may contact you regarding products and services that may be of interest to you where you have given your consent. We take precautions to allow access to Personal Data only to those staff members who have a legitimate business need for access and with a contractual prohibition of using the Personal Data for any other purpose.

(b) to our third party vendors, services providers and partners who provide data processing services to us, or who otherwise process Personal Data for purposes that are described in this Policy or notified to you when we collect your Personal Data. This may include disclosures to third party vendors and other service providers we use in connection with the services they provide to us, including to support us in areas such as IT platform management or support services, infrastructure and application services, marketing, data analytics.

(c) to any competent law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party where we believe disclosure is necessary (i) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (ii) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights, or (iii) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person;

(d) to our auditors, advisors, legal representatives and similar agents in connection with the advisory services they provide to us for legitimate business purposes and under contractual prohibition of using the Personal Data for any other purpose;

(e) to a potential buyer (and its agents and advisers) in connection with any proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of any part of our business, provided that we inform the buyer it must use your Personal Data only for the purposes disclosed in this Notice;

(f) to any other person if you have provided your prior consent to the disclosure.

4. How we protect your privacy

4.1 We will process Personal Data in accordance with the following principles:

(a) 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.

(b) Lawfulness: We will process Personal Data only on lawful grounds.

(c) Purpose limitation: We will process Personal Data for specified explicit and legitimate purposes, and will not process it in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes, unless permitted by applicable data protection laws.

(d) 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.

(e) 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 us 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).

(f) 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.  In particular, all data is protected according to the varying levels of risks through physical measures, such as secure areas, technical measures, such as encryption, and organisational measures such as employee security through vetting and supervision.

(g) 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.

5. Data storage, retention and deletion

5.1 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 or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).

5.2 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.

6. International transfers of data

6.1 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.

6.2 Specifically, our group companies and third party service providers and partners operate around the world. This means that when we collect your Personal Data we may process it in any of these countries.

6.3 However, we have taken appropriate safeguards to require that your Personal Data will remain protected in accordance with this Policy. In all cases, we only transfer or make your Personal Data available to other entities of the kangteit group or to our third party services providers in third countries where such transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and kangteit or the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

7. Profiling

7.1 In some instances, we may use your Personal Data in order to better understand your preferences and to provide customized products or services to you. However, we do not make any decisions based solely on automated processing of such data, which either produce legal effects that concern you or similarly significantly affect you.

8. Minors

8.1 The services we provide on this Website are not intended for individuals below the age of 16. If you are under 16, please do not use or register on this Website.

9. Your data protection rights

Again, you can exercise these rights by contacting us using the contact details below.

(c) 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 the processing of your Personal Data conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.

(d) You have the right to opt-out of marketing communications we send you at any time. You may unsubscribe from our newsletters or marketing notifications at any time by selecting the unsubscribe option in the "Email Preferences" section of your account, or by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every newsletter email.
