International Transfer of Personal Data
Because of the international nature of our business, we may need to transfer your personal data within the company or group, and to third-parties as noted in the ‘Disclosures’ section above, in connection with the purposes set out in this policy. For this reason, we may transfer your personal data to other countries that may have different laws and data protection compliance requirements to those that apply in the country in which you are located.
Where we transfer your personal data from the EEA to recipients located outside the EEA who are not in Adequate Jurisdictions, we do so based on standard contractual clauses. You may request a copy of our standard contractual clauses using the contact details provided.
We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational security measures designed to protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure, unauthorised access, and other unlawful or unauthorised forms of processing, in accordance with applicable Irish and European Union law.
As the internet is an open system, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will implement all reasonable measures to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to us using the internet – any such transmission is at your own risk and you are responsible for ensuring that any personal data that you send to us are sent securely.
We take every reasonable step to ensure that:
- your personal data that we process is accurate and kept up to date
- any of your personal data that we process which you inform us is inaccurate will be erased or rectified as per your instruction
We take every reasonable step to ensure that your personal data which we process is limited to the personal data reasonably necessary in connection with the purposes set out in this policy or as required to provide you services or access to our web sites and/or Apps.
Data Storage Retention
We will retain your personal information as needed to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected.
The criteria for determining the duration for which we will keep your personal data are as follows:
We will retain copies of your personal data in a form that permits identification only for as long as is necessary in connection with the purposes set out in this policy unless applicable law requires a longer retention period. We may retain your personal data for the duration of any period necessary to establish, exercise or defend any legal rights.
Dash Apps LTD will also retain usage data for internal analysis purposes. Usage data is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our Service, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer time periods.
If you no longer wish us to use your information in providing the Fleet platform to you, you may request that we erase your personal information and close your account (see "Right to withdraw consent" below). Please note that if you do this:
- We may retain some of your personal information as necessary for our legitimate business interests, such as fraud detection and prevention and enhancing safety. For example, if we suspend a Fleet account for fraud or safety reasons, we may retain certain information from that Fleet account to prevent that user from opening a new Fleet account in the future.
- We may retain and use your personal information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations. For example, Fleet may keep some of your information for tax, legal reporting and auditing obligations.
- Information you have shared with others (e.g., reviews) may continue to be publicly visible on the Fleet platform, even after your Fleet account is cancelled. Additionally, some copies of your information (e.g., log records) may remain in our database, but are disassociated from personal identifiers.
- Because we maintain the Fleet platform to protect from accidental or malicious loss and destruction, residual copies of your personal information may not be removed from our backup systems for a limited period of time.
Where We Store Your Personal Data
The data that we collect from you will be stored inside the European Economic Area ("EEA").
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology. data encryption, or scrambling technologies, and industry-standard firewalls. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. However, we take a number of steps to ensure best practices are followed.
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 unauthorised access.
