Access to Your Information
Storage and Transfer of Your Data
We store your personal information only on secure servers that are held in secure facilities in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) for EU customers, and in Japan for users based in Japan and in other regional data centers as appropriate. Each of these data centers has up-to-date firewall protection. Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, Japan or the applicable user’s jurisdiction, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission or Japan Privacy Commission.
- Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe or in Japan, as applicable.
- Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US, or Japan and US, as applicable.
LiveEnglishTime will retain your personal data for as long as we need to in order to fulfil legitimate business interests, conduct audits, comply with (and demonstrate compliance with) legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements. 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 unauthorized 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. You have the right to delete your personal data by sending an email requesting so to email@example.com. Please note in this case any financial information will be kept in accordance with local laws.
