We have listed the relevant legal grounds that we rely on below and a full description of each of these grounds can be found here.

Please note that in addition to the disclosures we have identified below, we may disclose personal data for the purposes we explain in this Privacy Statement to third-party service providers, contractors, agents, advisors (e.g.  legal, financial, business or other advisors) and affiliates of Nautilus that perform activities on our behalf, as well as other members of the Nautilus group.

Security of your personal data

No data transmission over the Internet or website can be guaranteed to be secure from intrusion.  However, we maintain commercially reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal data in accordance with data protection legislative requirements. All information you provide to us is stored on our or our service providers’ secure servers and accessed and used subject to our security policies and standards.

Export of your personal data

Your personal data may be accessed by staff or third-party service providers in, transferred to, and/or stored at, a destination outside the country in which you are located, whose data protection laws may be of a lower standard than those in your country.  We will, in all circumstances, safeguard personal data as set out in this Privacy Statement.  

If you are based in the European Economic Area (EEA) and we transfer your personal data outside of the EEA, we take steps to ensure your personal data is adequately protected. Certain countries outside the EEA have been approved by the European Commission as providing essentially equivalent protections to EEA data protection laws and therefore no additional safeguards are required to export personal information to these jurisdictions. In countries which have not had these approvals (see the full list here, we will establish legal grounds justifying such transfer, such as EU Commission-approved model contractual clauses, or other legal grounds permitted by applicable legal requirements.

Please contact us as set out in the “How to contact us” section below if you would like to see a copy of the specific safeguards applied to the export of your personal data. 

How long we keep your personal data

We will only hold your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, before making it non-identifiable or deleting it. For example, we may retain certain transaction details and correspondence until the time limit for claims arising from the transaction has expired, or to comply with regulatory requirements regarding the retention of such data. We will keep your personal data securely, and it will be destroyed securely if it is no longer needed for the lawful purposes for which it was obtained.

If you consent to receiving marketing from us, any information we use for this purpose will be held by us until such time as you notify us that you no longer wish to receive marketing information from us. If you choose to unsubscribe from a service, we may keep a ‘suppression list’ containing your details so we know you have unsubscribed.

If you send us any ‘contact us’ messages, we will delete or de-identify these messages once we have finally satisfied your query.

Your rights, complaints and how to contact us

If you are in the EU, you have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes.  You can exercise your right to prevent such processing at any time by contacting us as set out in this section.

Under certain conditions and depending on where you are located, you have the right to  

  1. access your personal data;      
  2. ask for your personal data to be rectified;      
  3. ask for deletion of your personal data where we no longer have a lawful ground to use;          
  4. where processing is based on consent, withdraw your consent so that we stop that particular processing;
  5. ask us to transmit the personal data you have provided to us and we still hold about you to a third party electronically;
  6. object to any processing based on the legitimate interests ground unless our reasons for undertaking that processing outweigh any prejudice to your data protection rights; and
  7. restrict how we use your information whilst a complaint is being investigated.

Your exercise of these rights is subject to certain exemptions to safeguard the public interest (e.g.  the prevention or detection of crime) and our interests (e.g. the maintenance of legal privilege). If you exercise any of these rights we will check your entitlement and respond in most cases within a month.
