We may collect limited personal data your browser makes available to our website when you visit. This log information includes your Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your visit and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser (for more information see the Cookies section below). We use this information to better understand users’ behavior to further improve our offerings as well as to prevent malicious use such as hacking and denial of service attacks.
In the unlikely event that we require you to provide additional personal data, we will inform you at that time about the types of information we collect, how we use it, who it is shared with and how long we will store it. We hope this will help you make an informed decision about sharing your personal information with us.
Whenever we collect personal information, we will use the personal information you provide only to fulfil the purpose for which we acquired the information. Your data will not be used for other purposes such as direct marketing unless we have notified you and, where legally required, we have your explicit consent.
When you interact with us, we do not normally ask for information but you may inadvertently give us personal details such as your name, email address, phone number, street address.
Location-based services establish location through the use of satellite, mobile, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy (“BLE”) or other network based positioning methods. These technologies may involve exchanging your location data and unique device and mobile, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or other network related identifiers with EGM. We do not use this information to identify you personally without your consent.
We endeavour to only collect personal data that are necessary for the purposes for which they are collected, and to retain such data for no longer than is necessary for such purposes. The length of time personal data is retained, and criteria for determining that time, are dependent on the nature of the personal data and the purpose for which it was provided. For example, Curriculum Vitae sent to us will be kept for a maximum period of six months. Once your data is no longer required, we will permanently delete it in accordance with applicable law.
We do not sell, lease, rent or otherwise disclose your personal data to third parties.
We may be obligated by mandatory law to disclose your personal data to certain authorities or other third parties, for example, to law enforcement agencies in the countries where we or third parties acting on our behalf operate. We may also disclose and otherwise process your personal data in accordance with applicable law to defend EGM’s legitimate interests, for example, in legal proceedings or in connection with governmental requests and filings.
