If you are based in another country and request to exercise one of the rights below or any other right you may have, we will do our best to fulfil such a request and will always fulfil the request if legally required.

We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response. To exercise or discuss any of your rights, please contact us via activate@shapeable.ai.

  • Right of Access. If you are in the EU and UK, you have the right at any time to ask us for a copy of the personal information that we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. Where we have good reason, and where data protection law permits, we can refuse your request for a copy of your personal information, or certain elements of the request. If we refuse your request or any element of it, we will provide you with our reason(s) for doing so. If you are in Australia, you may request access to the personal information that we hold about you. An administrative fee may be payable for the provision of such information. Please note, in some situations, we may be legally permitted to withhold access to your personal information. If we cannot provide access to your information, we will advise you as soon as reasonably possible and provide you with the reasons for our refusal and any mechanism available to complain about the refusal. If we can provide access to your information in another form that still meets your needs, then we will take reasonable steps to give you such access.
  • Right of Correction or Completion. If you are in the EU or UK, if the personal information we hold about you is not accurate or is out of date and requires amendment or correction, you have a right to have the data rectified or completed. If you are in Australia, if you believe that any information we hold about you is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, please contact us using the details below. We will take reasonable steps to promptly correct any information found to be inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading. Please note, in some situations, we may be legally permitted to not correct your personal information. If we cannot correct your information, we will advise you as soon as reasonably possible and provide you with the reasons for our refusal and any mechanism available to complain about the refusal.
  • Right of Erasure. If you are in the EU or UK, in certain circumstances, you have the right to request that the personal information we hold about you is erased (for example, if the personal information is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or processed or our processing of the personal information is based only on your consent and there are no other legal grounds on which we may process the personal information).
  • Right to Anonymity. If you are in Australia, where practicable we will give you the option of not identifying yourself or using a pseudonym in your dealings with us.
  • Right to Object to or Restrict Processing. If you are in the EU or UK, in certain circumstances, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal information (for example, if we are processing your personal information on the basis of our legitimate interests but there are no longer any compelling legitimate grounds to justify our processing overriding your rights and interests).

You may also have the right to restrict our use of your personal information, for example during a period in which we are verifying the accuracy of your personal information in circumstances where you have challenged the accuracy of that personal information.

  • Right of Data Portability. If you are in the EU or UK, in certain instances, you have a right to receive the personal information that we hold about you (or a portion thereof) in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

In such circumstances, you can ask us to transmit your personal information to you or directly to a third-party organisation on your behalf.

While we are happy for such requests to be made, we are not able to guarantee technical compatibility with a third-party organisation's systems. We are also unable to comply with requests that relate to personal information of others without their consent.

  • Right to Lodge a Complaint. You have the right to make a complaint at any time. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach any supervisory body, so please contact us in the first instance with full details of your complaint. We will promptly investigate your complaint and respond to you, in writing, setting out the outcome of our investigation and the steps we will take in response to your complaint. If you are in Australia and if you are not satisfied with our response, you also have the right to contact the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner. In the UK your complaint may be made to the Information Commissioner's Office (the ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (https://ico.org.uk/concerns).

If we are relying on consent to process your personal information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Please note however that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing that occurred before the withdrawal of such consent.

Information retention

If you are in the EU or UK, we will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax law, accounting requirements or other legal or regulatory requirements).

If you are in the EU or UK, when we have no ongoing business purpose to justify the processing of your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

Storage and security

We are committed to ensuring that the personal information we collect is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures, to safeguard and secure personal information and protect it from misuse, interference, loss and unauthorised access, modification and disclosure.

While we are committed to security, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that is transmitted to or by us over the Internet. The transmission and exchange of information is carried out at your own risk. We have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable supervisory body of a suspected data breach where we are legally required to do so.
