If you are dissatisfied with how we have used your information or addressed your rights, you have the right to complain to the Data Protection Commission by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including to satisfy any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In connection with the above, CPI may transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area, including to a jurisdiction that the European Commission does not recognise as providing an equivalent level of protection for personal data as provided in the European Union.
If and to the extent that CPI does so, CPI will ensure that appropriate measures are in place to comply with its obligations under applicable law governing such transfers, which may include entering into a contract governing the transfer which contains the ‘standard contractual clauses’ approved for this purpose by the European Commission and/or other transfer obligations/arrangements as may be specified by the Commission.
Further details of the measures CPI has taken in this regard are available from the CPI Data Protection Officer using the contact details above.
Your personal data is held on secure servers hosted by EventsAIR (Centium Software).
The nature of the Internet is such that we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us via the Internet. No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. However, we will take all reasonable steps (including appropriate technical and organisational measures) to protect your personal data.
