HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
We work with a number of suppliers and partners to process your personal data for the purposes described above. Where these suppliers and partners act on our behalf they must only process your personal data in accordance with our instructions. The categories of suppliers and partners that we use include:
- IT and information technology and services companies
- Marketing and PR companies that deliver our communications
- Companies that manage and maintain website content
- Survey partners
- Delivery and courier companies
- Travel and booking management providers
We may on occasion need to send your personal data outside of the UK or EEA where our suppliers and/or business partners need it in order to provide one of the functions described above. Where that happens we will ensure that we only grant access to your personal data where necessary and only where appropriate security measures and controls are in place to protect your personal data in accordance with applicable data protection laws, regulations and regulatory guidance. This means these transfers will take place on the basis of approved data transfer mechanisms, such as UK or EU Standard Contractual Clauses, or on the basis of a valid Adequacy decision given by the appropriate local regulator.
Please note that where you purchase any digital token (or ‘crypto’) that you are participating in an arrangement which functions using a publicly accessible open ledger. Doing so will cause a record of your purchase of those tokens to be recorded on that ledger, enabling any party which views it to see that record. While the record of the transaction will only identify the unique number of the digital ‘wallet’ that you use to receive those tokens, that record may be sufficient to render your identity verifiable when combined with other publicly available data. TAOST has no control over that process as it is an inherent part of the way that blockchain technologies work, so we will have no control over the transaction record or of any scrutiny which may be applied to your individual wallet number.
In the event the structure of our business changes, we will pass your personal information to that company. This includes, for example, a merger between us and another company, where another company acquires us or some or all of our assets, where we acquire another company or where our holding company restructures our corporate group.
YOUR DATA SUBJECT RIGHTS
You have the following rights in relation to your personal data:
- To request access to, erasure of, and/or correction of the personal data we hold about you.
- To request us to restrict the processing of the personal data we hold about you.
- To object to us processing personal data relating to you.
- Where you have given us consent to process your personal data, to withdraw that consent at any time.
- To obtain certain personal data from us in a format that can be transferred electronically to a third party (also called “data portability”).
Please note that some of these rights are not absolute, and whether you can exercise your right depends on the circumstances. We will keep you informed throughout the process.
You may update, correct or modify any information held by TAOST, or withdraw your consent where your data is processed on the basis of consent, at any time by contacting us using the details below.
All data held by TAOST is processed in accordance with all applicable data protection laws, meaning that the data will only be processed and retained for the purposes for which it was originally collected.
You can contact us using the details below if you wish to find out more about how to exercise your subject rights.
For individuals who are resident in California, please be aware that TAOST does not sell your personal information.
HOW LONG WE MAY KEEP YOUR INFORMATION
We will usually only keep your information for as long as we need it for the purposes it was collected, and we apply the following retention periods to your information:
- General enquiries and correspondence are retained for 2 years.
Information captured as part of the organisation and administration of events are retained for a maximum of 1 year after the events.
- Photographs and videos will be retained for a maximum of 5 years after the events.
- Contact details for advertising, marketing, business development and public relations purposes will be retained for a maximum of 3 years after we last contact you.
We keep the data for this length of time for business reasons because the information is helpful if we receive any enquiries or complaints, and so that we are able to verify your identity when you contact TAOST.
In some cases, information such as contact information and correspondence with notes and complaints will need to be retained for longer periods for regulatory purposes so that TAOST can demonstrate compliance with Data Protection legislation, for example, where we need to evidence that we have responded to and dealt with subject rights requests made by individuals; or to enable us to defend potential legal claims under the statutory periods set out in applicable legislation.
Please note that information created as part of a transaction relating to digital tokens enabled by blockchain technologies will be retained permanently on the individual ’blockchain’ which enables that transaction. TAOST has no control over that process which is an inherent part of the way that all blockchain technologies work.
