This Notice applies to prospective, existing and former customers of Endeavor (including employees and representatives of our corporate customers), individual and business contacts and prospects, individuals who request information from us, any person who supplies products or services to Endeavor (either as an individual or as the employee or representative of a supplier), and third parties acting for our customers. It is important that you read this Notice, together with any other privacy information or notices we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal information about you, so that you are aware of how and why we are using such information. We reserve the right to update this Notice at any time, and we will publish a new Personal Information Privacy and Transparency Notice when we make any substantial updates.

Transferring information from the European Economic Area (“EEA”)
Our electronic personal information is hosted primarily on servers located within Canada. If we are required to transfer information from the EEA, we only do so where permitted by law, and where we have put in place appropriate measures to ensure that such EEA personal information is treated in a way that is consistent with and which respects the EU and UK laws on data protection. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that transfers to our servers are secure. By engaging with us from inside the EEA you acknowledge and agree that such transfers are necessary for us to provide services to you.
We have put in place appropriate measures to protect the security of your information. Third parties will only process your personal information on our instructions and where they have agreed to treat the information confidentially and to keep it secure. We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will process your personal information only on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We also have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.
How long we keep your information
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. Where a minimum retention period is required by law, we comply with that minimum period plus up to 12 months to allow time for us to anonymize or delete information in accordance with our internal data management processes. Please contact email@example.com if you would like to discuss specific retention periods applicable to your matters. If we are required to retain your information longer than our standard retention periods, we will let you know (unless we are prevented by law from doing so.) In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you.
Your rights in connection with personal information
Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
• Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
• Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
• Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
• Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
• Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
• Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.
In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we are required to continue to process your information in accordance with another lawful basis which has been notified to you.
To exercise any of the above rights, please contact Endeavor at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may refuse to comply if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
