StudyBird uses appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the Personal Data collected and processed about its Users. The measures are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing the Personal Data.
Legal Basis for Processing Personal Information (EEA Visitors Only)
If a User is a visitor from the European Economic Area, the legal basis for collecting and using the Personal Data described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which it is collected.
Personal Data is generally collected only where required to perform a contract or provide Services, where the processing is in legitimate interests and not overridden by the Users’ data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms, or where the Users have consented to do so. In some cases, StudyBird may have a legal obligation to collect Personal Data from its Users.
International Data Transfers
Personal Data is retained where there is an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements). When there is no ongoing legitimate business need to process Personal Data, it will be either deleted or anonymised or, if this is not possible (for example, because the Personal Data has been stored in backup archives), it will be securely stored and isolated from any further processing until deletion is possible.
Data Protection Rights
If a user is a resident of the European Union, the User may:
- access, correct, update or request deletion of its Personal Data.
- object to processing of its Personal Data, ask StudyBird to restrict processing of its Personal Data or request portability of its Personal Data.
- In the limited circumstances where its Personal Data has been collected and processed for a specific purpose with their consent, then consent can be withdrawn for that specific processing at any time. Withdrawing consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing conducted based on consent granted prior to withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of the Personal Data conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent. Once withdrawal notification is received, Personal Data will no longer be processed for the purpose originally agreed to, unless there is another legal basis for processing.
- complain to a data protection authority about collection and use of its Personal Data. For more information, please contact the local data protection authority. Contact details for data protection authorities in the EEA, Switzerland and certain non-European countries are available at: https://ec.europa.eu/newsroom/article29/item-detail.cfm?item_id=612080 .
