Standard is based in the United States of America. If you are from a country outside of the United States of America with laws governing data collection, use, and disclosure that may differ from U.S. law and you provide personal information to us, please note that any personal information that you provide to us may be transferred to the United States of America. By providing your personal information, where applicable law permits, you hereby specifically and expressly consent to such transfer and processing and the collection, use, and disclosure set forth herein or in the Terms of Service.
The following applies to individuals in the European Economic Area (EEA).
Lawful basis for processing
Standard is required to inform you of the lawful basis of our processing of your personal information, which are described in the table below. If you have questions about the lawful basis of how we process your personal information, contact us at the address listed in the section titled “CONTACTING US” below.
|Processing Purpose||Lawful Basis|
|Processing is based on your consent. Where we rely on your consent you have the right to withdraw it anytime in the manner indicated on the Website.|
|Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract. You are subject to a contract with us and we need to use your personal information to provide products and Services.|
|Processing is necessary to comply with our legal obligations.|
|Processing activities constitute our legitimate interests. We consider and balance the potential impact on your rights before we process your personal information for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal information for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent, or we are otherwise required to perform a contract or by law).|
We will use your personal information only for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably determine we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.
For example, we consider aggregation and deidentification of personal information to be compatible with the purposes listed above and in your interest, because the aggregation and deidentification of such information reduces the likelihood of improper disclosure of that information.
Standard retains your personal information:
European data protection laws give you certain rights regarding your personal information. You may ask us to take the following actions in relation to your personal information that we hold:
When we receive your request, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request. We may withhold information where we are required by law to do so or if the search for that information would require disproportionate effort or have a disproportionate effect to, for example, the cost of providing the information, the time it would take to retrieve the data, or how difficult it may be to obtain the information requested.
If you are a resident EEA and would like to exercise any of these rights, please submit your request to the address listed in the section titled “CONTACTING US” below.
If you would like to submit a complaint about our use of your personal information or response to your requests regarding your personal information, you may contact us or submit a complaint to the data protection authority in your jurisdiction. You can find your data protection regulator here.
