If you visit our website (https://sophieswomenofwar.com) or book splash page (https://seducingandkillingnazis.com), we refer to our Cookie Declaration.

SECTION 7 – LEGAL BASIS OF PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We distinguish different legal basis, in order to process your personal data:

  • Your consent, by actively providing your contact details to us for a certain purpose;
  • Our legitimate interest, which translates into our objective to communicate relevant professional developments and to invite our clients and contacts to events.
  • To fulfill any legal obligations placed upon us, such as the prevention of fraud or money-laundering or if lawfully required to do so by a legal authority or a court of law;

SECTION 8 – SECURITY

We take appropriate security measures to ensure that we keep your data secure, accurate and up to date. However, the transmission of information over the Internet is never completely secure, so while we do our best to protect personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to our websites.

SECTION 9 – THIRD PARTY WEBSITES

On the SWW website and book splash page (see full web addresses above in section 6) there are sometimes links to third party websites or applications. This policy does not apply to such pages or applications hosted or operated by other organizations. These other sites may have their own privacy policies which apply to them.

SECTION 10 – SHARING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

In some circumstances your personal data may be shared with us by third parties, but only where you have specifically consented. For example when you register your interest in SWW’s activities on Facebook, Facebook will share information such as your name and email address with us.

In addition, our websites are hosted by third party service providers and therefore any personal details you submit through them may be processed by that third party service provider. We also use other third parties to process your personal data, for example to all online expressions of interest in SWW’s activities and to manage all related communications. All third party service providers process your personal information only on SWW’s behalf and are bound by contractual terms that are compliant with data protection law.

If you are a client, your financial or bank details may be disclosed to banks or relevant financial institutions to arrange payments. In case of a suspected fraudulent transaction, your details may be further disclosed for the sole purpose of performing further checks (for example, disclosure to a credit checking agency).

We may also share your personal information with your permission, or if we are legally required to disclose your information in circumstances where this cannot be reasonably resisted.

SECTION 11 – RETENTION PERIOD FOR DATA

We only hold your personal data on our systems for as long as is necessary for the purposes as described above. We remove personal data from our systems once it is no longer required, in line with our guidelines on how long important data must remain accessible for future use or reference, as well as when and how data can be destroyed when it is no longer needed.

The length of time each category of data will be retained, will vary depending on how long we need to process it for the reason it was collected and in line with any statutory requirements. After this time, the data will either be deleted or we may retain a secure anonymized record for research and analytical purposes.

SECTION 12 – YOUR RIGHTS AND HOW TO INVOKE THEM

You are entitled to ask us for information about and access to your personal data and to object to the processing of your personal data by us. Further, under certain circumstances you have the right to ask us to rectify or delete your personal data and to restrict the processing of this.
