You have the right to opt-out of any of the Third Party’s marketing communications and, unless expressly stated otherwise and having obtained the necessary consents from you, the Third Party will only contact you for the Purpose.
We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through direct interactions. For example, you may provide us with your personal data by filling in forms or by corresponding with us by post, phone, email or otherwise.
You can browse the GoTo Site without entering any personal information. However, if you choose to request information about a product or service which is being advertised on the GoTo Site or any of the products or services we or a Third Party (as defined below) offer, you will be asked to provide us with personal information through a request form. Information we collect may include: your name, email address, telephone number and postcode.
In certain circumstances, to process your request, we may request that you provide us with certain sensitive personal data (as defined in the applicable data protection laws from time to time, and includes: [gender]) in which event we will only collect and process such data where we have obtained your explicit consent.
We endeavour to only collect the minimum amount of information necessary to fulfil your request. However, some of the information that we ask you to provide is mandatory and if you do not provide it, we may not be able to action your request.
When you provide your personal information to us, we may use it for any of the purposes described in this policy, including, but not limited to:
We adhere to highly stringent security measures to protect your personal information from misuse, loss or alteration. Only persons who have agreed to protect and keep confidential your personal information in line with this policy and our practices relating to data protection and confidentiality have access to your personal information you provide to us.
We take all appropriate measures to protect personal information; however, as any transfer of data over the internet is not completely secure we cannot guarantee absolutely the security of data transmitted to us over the internet. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting, governance or reporting requirements.
We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect of our relationship with you.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, having regard to the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting, governance or other requirements.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data (see section 11 below).
In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
When necessary and in very limited circumstances, your personal information may be transferred to and stored outside of the United Kingdom. This includes countries outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) which may not have local laws which specifically provide protection for personal information. Where your personal information is collected within the EEA and transferred out of the EEA, it will only be transferred where: the recipient is located in a country which provides an adequate level of protection; and/or, an agreement is in place which includes contractual clauses that are of a standard approved by the European Commission for the purposes of transferring personal information outside of the EEA.
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.

This may be necessary for administrative, security, storage and management purposes and to process the information for the reason it has been submitted on the GoTo Site and we will, where it is necessary to share your personal information in this way, ensure that there are necessary data protection and confidentiality protections in place with such third party affiliates.
