Sharing of Personal Information
From time to time, Sanctuary may disclose your personal information to service providers retained by it to perform services on its behalf or any third party or parties, where you consent to the disclosure or where disclosure is required or permitted by law. Sanctuary does not sell personal information.
Storing of Personal Information
Your personal information is stored either at Sanctuary’s premises or the premises of its service providers. Sanctuary only retains your personal information as long as it is required for the reasons it was collected, to fulfill Sanctuary’s legitimate business needs to retain personal information for auditing, reporting or dispute resolution purposes, or to comply with legal requirements.
Other Sites and Social Media
Sanctuary’s sites may have links to other sites or services not provided by Sanctuary, including social media sites that Sanctuary may use along with you. These sites or services may have different privacy practices and policies than Sanctuary and Sanctuary recommends that you review their privacy policies to determine if they are acceptable to you. While Sanctuary is not responsible for those privacy policies and practices, Sanctuary is responsible for any personal information it collects, uses or discloses on those sites or services under this policy.
Sanctuary takes steps to protect your personal information in Sanctuary’s custody and control from loss, misuse, unauthorized access and alteration by using reasonable physical, organizational and technological security measures. However, no system or security measure is completely secure. Any transmission of your personal information to Sanctuary is at your own risk.
To the extent Sanctuary has arrangements with service providers to store or process personal information on Sanctuary’s behalf, its policy is to require them by contractual or other means to provide comparable protection while the information is stored or processed by them. However, some of Sanctuary’s service providers may be located in countries whose data protection laws are not as protective as those in your country of residence and, despite the measures that Sanctuary has in place, these laws may permit government and national security authorities to access personal data in certain circumstances.
