We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

We will not sell, rent, lease or otherwise share your personal data other than as outlined in this Privacy Policy or without obtaining your consent beforehand.

Judopay, may transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Personal data may be stored and processed in any country where we have operations or where we engage service providers. We may transfer personal data that we maintain about you to recipients in countries other than the country in which the personal data was originally collected, including to the United States.

We will only retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, contractual, 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.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data (please see the legal rights section below for further information).

In some circumstances we may 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 aggregated information indefinitely without further notice to you.

What we may need from you
