ON WHAT BASIS DO WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We may process your personal data for limited reasons. These include where your express consent has been gained, during the performance of a contract, where we are legally obligated to, where the vital interests of yourself or others are involved or where there is a legitimate or public reason to do so.
WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS, AS A DATA SUBJECT?
Through the integration of our Data Protection Policies and Guidelines, we have created structures that ensure that all of your rights as a ‘data subject’ are fully considered and that your personal data is treated with the highest regard, whilst ensuring that you continue having a seamless experience with us.
Other than where legal or contractual restrictions apply, you have the right to engage in any of the following:
You may inform us that you have chosen to restrict the processing of your data. This means that you may request that for certain functions, we DO NOT process your personal data. However, in line with our data protection principles, we will not process any category of your personal data without a legitimate need to do so.
You have the right to rectify any data that we currently hold or process. If you would like to update or change certain data, please reach out to our Data Protection Officer, who will ensure that the relevant department is notified. You also have the right to complete data if you feel that the data that we hold is not complete or is insufficient.
You may choose to request that all your personal data be erased from our system. If this is your request, our DPO will be in touch to ensure that you are made aware that your data has been erased in line with our Erasure Policy. This will be the final communication from us as we will then delete your contact from our systems.
If you would like to object to the processing of your data for certain purposes, do inform us and provided that we are not bound by legal obligation, we will acquiesce to your request. If there are legal limitations to your request, to ensure that you are aware of these limitations, we may contact you via email to communicate this.
You may ask for all personal data that we hold. We will provide a copy of this information, free of charge and within a reasonable time from your request. A copy of your data will be sent to you electronically in PDF via encrypted email. A password will be sent to you through a second email. In certain circumstances, and upon request from you, we may acquiesce to your request to receive your data in a different format, provided that this is feasible.
If any of the above is a request you would like to make, please reach out to our DPO: [email protected]
If we fail to fulfil your request, or address a concern that you raised, you have the right to place a complaint with the Data Protection Commissioner.
OUR APPROACH TO DATA BREACHES
A data breach is any activity that exposes your personal data to entities that should otherwise not be able to attain your personal data (entities to which you did not consent the processing of your personal data). A data breach can be an act of accessing or providing data by unauthorized entities or an omission to provide the security systems that should provide adequate security against unauthorized data.
We take data breaches very seriously! Where a data breach comes to our attention, you will be notified within 72 hours of our knowledge of the breach. In addition, an investigation will be conducted to assess where the breach happened and why to ensure that a repetition does not occur.
PERSONAL DATA OF MINORS
Leal ‘GROUP’ will not knowingly collect, process or store the personal information of any person below the age of 16 without the express consent of the parent or legal guardian.
REMEMBER, YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF YOUR DATA
In line with our commitment to you, we would like to ensure you that you have the right to restrict, rectify or delete your data, depending on how your data was obtained and for what purposes it is being processed.
Each one of our companies is wholly dedicated to ensuring that you have a fantastic experience at all times. As such, feel free to contact the DPO should you have any queries or concerns!
