Personal data is collected and used for a specific purpose, unless we determine its use for another reason is compatible. Please contact us to receive an explanation of how processing for another purpose meets that criteria.
If your personal data must be used for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and explain the legal basis that allows its use.
We may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the rules stated above, where required or permitted by law
5. Disclosure of Personal Data
We may be required to share personal data with the parties listed below for the purposes identified in the table provided in “4. Using Your Personal Data” above.
- Internal Third Parties as defined in the Glossary
- Third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge part of our business or assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change to our business occurs, new owners may use personal data in the same manner as set out in this privacy notice.
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and treat it in accordance with the law. Third-party service providers are not allowed to use your personal data for their own purposes. Use of personal data is permitted only for specified purposes and must be in accordance with our instructions.
6. International Transfers
We share your personal data within the FranklinCovey Group, requiring the transfer of your data outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Additionally, many of our external third parties are located outside the EEA, again requiring the transfer of your personal data to allow processing.
Whenever your personal data is transferred outside of the European Economic Area, we ensure a similar degree of protection is implemented using at least one of the following safeguards:
- Transfer is only allowed to countries sanctioned by the European Commission to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data.
- Where certain service providers are used, specific contracts provided by the European Commission may be used to ensure personal data will have the same protection as in Europe. For further details, see European Commission: Model Contracts for the transfer of personal data to third parties.
- Data may be transferred to third-party providers in the U.S. who are members of the Privacy Shield, requiring them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the U.S. For additional information, see European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield.
Please contact us if you require additional information about our process for transferring your personal data outside of the EEA.
7. Data Security
Appropriate security measures are in place to prevent personal data from accidental loss, misuse, alteration, or unauthorized disclosure. Additionally, access to personal data is limited to those employees, agents, contractors, and third parties who are authorized to process the data on our behalf, under specific instruction, and subject to a duty of confidentiality.
Procedures are in place to deal with any suspected personal data breach. You and, if legally required, any applicable regulator will be notified of a breach.
8. Data Retention
Your personal data will be retained only as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected, including legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
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, and the applicable legal requirements.
Law requires that we keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, and Transaction Data) for six years following the last use of the website and/or services for liability and tax purposes.
In some circumstances, you can ask us to delete your data. See Request Erasure below for further information.
We may anonymize personal data (to remove any association with personal identity) for research or statistical purposes, in which case the information may be used for an indefinite period without further notice to you.
9. Your Legal Rights
Under certain circumstances, you have rights relating to your personal data under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Click on this link to find out more about these rights: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-protection-eu_en
If you choose to exercise any of the rights contained in GDPR, please contact us. These rights are subject to certain exceptions and exclusions, and we may be unable to comply in full with your request.
You are not required to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
Request for Specific Information
We may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This security measure ensures that personal data is not disclosed to an unauthorized person. We may also contact you to ask you for additional information to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally, it may take us longer if your request is particularly complex. In this case, we will notify you and keep you informed.
Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us.
