6. Information for UK and EU Residents Subject to the GDPR or UK-GDPR
The Lawful Bases for Processing Personal Information
In order to comply with applicable data protection laws, in particular the GDPR and UK-GDPR, we are required to rely on one or more lawful bases for the processing of your Personal Information. In accordance with the purposes for which we collect and use your Personal Information, as set out above, the lawful basis for processing your Personal Information will typically be one of the following:
Where you have provided your consent for us to use your Personal Information in a certain way (for example, we may ask for your consent to email you with our newsletter and information and updates about publications, events, programs, and other activities which we consider may be of interest to you).
Where necessary so that we can comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject (for example, where we are obliged to share your Personal Information with regulatory bodies that govern our activities).
Where necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request prior to entering a contract.
Where there is a legitimate interest in us doing so. In brief, the GDPR allows us to collect and use your Personal Information if it is reasonably necessary to achieve our or others' legitimate interests (as long as that processing is fair, balanced and does not unduly impact your rights). In broad terms, our "legitimate interests" means the running of our operations and the publishing and sale of our publications. Where we use your Personal Information to achieve such legitimate interests, we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under applicable data protection laws. We will not use your Personal Information for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you, for example where use would be excessively intrusive in the circumstances (unless, for example, we are otherwise required to by law).
Your Rights with Respect to Personal Information
Persons located in the EU and UK may have certain rights in relation to their Personal Information under the GDPR. Persons in other jurisdictions may also have certain rights in relation to their Personal Information. We will honor your requests to exercise the following rights to the extent possible and as required under the applicable law:
Right to rectification. If you believe our records of your Personal Information are inaccurate or out of date, you have the right to ask for those records to be corrected / updated. You can also ask us to check the Personal Information we hold about you to check whether it is accurate / up to date.
Right to withdraw consent. Where we rely on your consent to use your Personal Information, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. This includes the right to ask us to stop using your Personal Information for marketing purposes, or to unsubscribe from our email list at any time.
Right of access. You can write to us to ask for confirmation of what Personal Information we hold on you and to request a copy of that Personal Information. Provided we are satisfied that you are entitled to see the Personal Information requested and, where reasonably required, we have successfully confirmed your identity, we will provide you with your Personal Information subject to any exemptions which may apply.
Right to object. You have the right to object to processing where we are (i) processing your Personal Information in reliance on the lawful basis of legitimate interests (see section above), (ii) using your Personal Information for direct marketing, or (iii) using your Personal Information for statistical purposes.
Right to erasure. You may request that we erase your personal data. We will comply, unless there is a lawful reason for not doing so. In many cases, we shall use limited Personal Information to suppress further communications with you, rather than delete it entirely, so that we can comply with your preferences.
Right to restrict. You have the right to ask for processing of your Personal Information to be restricted if there is disagreement about its accuracy or legitimate use.
Right to data portability. To the extent required by the GDPR, where we are processing your Personal Information (that you have provided to us) either (i) by relying on your consent or (ii) because such processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract, and in either case we are processing using automated means (i.e. with no human involvement), you may ask us to provide the Personal Information to you – or another service provider – in a commonly used machine-readable format.
Rights related to automated decision-making. You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing of your Personal Information which produces legal effects on you or similarly significantly affects you, unless such a decision (i) is necessary to enter into / perform a contract between you and us / another organization; (ii) is authorised by the EU or an EU member state law to which 52 Walker is subject (as long as that law offers you sufficient protection); or (iii) is based on your explicit consent.
Right to lodge a complaint with your local data protection authority. For individuals based in the EU, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with your local data protection authority about how we use your Personal Information. A list of the data protection authorities in each member state, including their contact details, can be found here. For further information, please contact us using the details below.
7. Social Media
The Website links to certain Third-Party Sites (like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook) to provide information about us and our products and services (those websites, "Social Media Services"). When you follow, like, comment, or otherwise engage with us through these Social Media Services, we see the Personal Information that the Social Media Service generally makes available about its users (that information, "Social Media Information"). You should review the privacy policies of Social Media Services you interact with for more information on how it collects, uses, and shares Personal Information, including Social Media Information that may be provided to us.
8. Record Retention
If you request to receive no further contact from us, we will keep some basic personal information about you on our suppression list in order to comply with your request and avoid sending you unwanted communications in the future.
We use reasonable efforts to safeguard your Personal Information. All traffic on the Website is encrypted with an SSL/TSL Certificate, including transmission of Personal Information to the Website. In order to further insure your privacy, we ask that you do not send any credit card information via email. Of course, no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so you provide your Personal Information at your own risk.
10. Location of Servers and Transfer of Information
Information collected through the Website will be accessed and processed in the United States. In addition, your Personal Information may be transferred outside the United States by our Affiliates or Service Providers with locations in other countries. By using the Website and providing your Personal Information to us, you consent to this transfer and to the collection, storage, processing and use of your Personal Information both within and outside of the United States.
Certain countries have rules relating to the transfer of Personal Information across borders and require us to ensure that Personal Information remains protected according to appropriate standards (for example, EU member states under the GDPR).
When necessary, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that we and other recipients of your Personal Information implement appropriate safeguards (such as by entering into contractual clauses obliging us / such recipients to take steps to protect your Personal Information) designed to protect your Personal Information and to ensure that your Personal Information is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy. If you have any questions about the transfer of your Personal Information, please contact us using the details below.
11. Your Choices Regarding Our Use of Your Personal Information
If you wish to review, update, correct, or remove the information we have for you, please email [email protected].
If you no longer wish to receive communications from us, you can also unsubscribe by clicking on the "unsubscribe" button in any email communication you receive from us.
Some browsers have incorporated Do Not Track ("DNT") preferences. As there is not yet an industry-standard DNT protocol on how to interpret DNT signals, we do not honor DNT signals from browsers at this time. However, you may refuse or delete cookies to prevent some tracking activities.
We do not knowingly solicit data from or market to children under the age of 18. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information without their consent, he or she should contact us at [email protected]. We will delete such information from our files within a reasonable time.
