Legal requirements for collecting personal data
We have two legal bases on which this personal information (“data”) is collected from you. The legal basis on which we collect your personal information to provide you with our services, is contractual. This means that by using our software, websites and services please be aware that you are granting Techion the authority to collect and retain the personal data supplied by you to perform our contracted services. The legal basis on which we collect and possibly share your data for marketing, statistical, research and development purposes, is consent. If you do not want your personal information being used for statistical, research or development purposes, then you can withdraw your consent for these uses by contacting Techion Group. You may also object to our use of your personal data for marketing purposes separately from withdrawing your consent (i.e. you can request to be removed from our mailing list).
Your personal identifiable data, such as contact details, are retained by Techion for a period of 9 years after termination of your contract. All other data such as results from our services, effectiveness of treatments and prevalence of parasites in association with anonymous demographic information, will be retained indefinitely for statistical or research purposes. If you have any concerns with how Techion is handling this data, you have the right to complain to the either the Privacy Commissioner (for New Zealand complaints) or the Information Commissioners Office (for UK complaints).
You may contact Techion at any stage to request to access, modify or rectify your data. You may also request to be informed of the data which is stored about you, or have it erased. You have the right to restrict our processing of your personal data and have the right to portability. You will not be subject to any automated decision making based off the data you provide Techion. Note that for existing customers the personal information you provide to us on the legal basis of contract, is essential for the provision of our services and if you request us to remove that information, we cannot then provide such services. However, such action will not cancel your obligations through any service contract you have with us.
