THE LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA

In order to comply with the GDPR, we are required to set out the legal basis for the processing of your Personal Data.  In accordance with the purposes for which we collect and use your Personal Data, as set out above, the legal basis for processing your Personal Data will typically be one of the following:

  • our own legitimate business interests, or the legitimate business interests of our third party partners, promoters, affiliates, distributors, suppliers, vendors, and subcontractors, such as, for example, providing direct marketing to our customers of our products and services that we think would be of interest, permitting prospective employees to search and apply for job opportunities, handling inquiries from our promoters, affiliates, distributors, vendors, and customers, or other instances where we have carried out a legitimate interests assessment and have established an existing legitimate interest;

  • the performance of a contract that we have in place with you;

  • your consent where appropriate; or

  • compliance with our legal obligations, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

The data that we collect from you is stored on our servers or on servers provided by cloud service providers, such as Amazon Web Services.  If you are a resident of the EEA, your Personal Data may be transferred within or outside the EEA to areas where privacy laws may be less strict than in the EEA .  By submitting your Personal Data, you agree to this transfer, storing, and  processing.  We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk.  Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

ADDENDUM TO HOW LONG WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

In some cases, there is a legal requirement to keep Personal Data for a minimum period of time.  Except in those circumstances, we do not keep your Personal Data for any longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the Personal Data was collected or for which it is to be further processed.

YOUR RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO YOUR PERSONAL DATA

Subject to certain exceptions, you have the following rights with respect to your Personal Data:

  • To receive a copy of the Personal Data that we hold about you;

  • To request that any inaccurate or incomplete Personal Data be corrected or supplemented;

  • To have your Personal Data erased, unless we have a legitimate reason to retain the Personal Data (such as if we are required to do so for legal reasons); and

  • To ask us not to process your Personal Data for a particular purpose, including for marketing.

All of these rights are subject to certain conditions and exemptions.  For example, KPC will not be obligated to erase your Personal Data if we need to retain it to protect ourselves in the event of a legal claim.

To exercise any of these rights,  please submit a written request to us using the contact information set forth below. The Company reserves the right to charge a fee in dealing with such a request as permitted by applicable law and regulations.  You may also opt out of receiving additional marketing information by using the unsubscribe feature in any marketing email we send you.
