International Transfers

How we safeguard personal data when we transfer it internationally

We ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded whenever we transfer personal data out of the UK by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  1. We will only transfer your personal information to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal information; or

  2. We will use specific contracts approved for use in the UK which give personal information the same protection it has in the UK. For example, the use of Article 46 UK/EU GDPR safeguard mechanisms to transfer personal data.

Data Security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, 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.

The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will take reasonable measures to protect your personal data, Antstream cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted and any transmission is at your own risk.

 

Data Retention

Antstream will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. Antstream may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

Antstream may anonymise your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Keeping Personal Information Accurate & Current

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us. If you wish to update your personal data please contact us. See Contact Us.

Carrying Out Your Data Subject Rights

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data or to exercise any of the other rights. However, Antstream may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal information or to exercise any of your other rights. This is a security measure to ensure that personal information 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.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us at gdpr@antstream.com.
