Our Websites are not directed toward children (as defined by local law) nor does Kobalt knowingly collect information from children (as defined by local law).
If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that a child has provided us with personal information without parental consent, please contact us using the information in the Contact Us section. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from children without verification of parental consent, we will take steps to remove that information from our servers.
We take reasonable steps, including physical, technical and organisational measures, to protect your personal information from unauthorised access and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. Unfortunately, transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information submitted to us and any transmission is at your own risk.
This includes use of multi-factor authentication to use the Portal. This is designed to ensure that the person accessing your account is, in fact, you. You may choose to provide us with a telephone number so that we can text you a one-time use code. You may alternatively use a third party authentication app ("Authentication App"). When you download the Authentication App, the applicable third party's privacy notice and/or the relevant app store privacy notice will apply to the collection and use of your information by the Authentication App and relevant app store (as applicable). The Authentication App is not provided by Kobalt and Kobalt is not responsible for the processing of your information by the Authentication App. In particular, you may use the Google Authenticator app. Please see more information here.
Your personal information will be retained by Kobalt for a period of time as necessary and relevant to our legitimate operations, our terms of agreement (if any) with you and in accordance with applicable legal obligations. This may include retention necessary to meet our tax reporting requirements as well as time required to enforce the relevant terms of agreement or to identify, issue or resolve legal proceedings.
We may retain a record of you stated objection to the processing of your data, including in respect of an objection to receiving marketing communications, for the sole legitimate purpose of ensuring that we can continue to respect your wishes and not contact you further, during the term of your objection.
You have options and choices over how we use your personal information. You may have the right under applicable laws to ask for details of the personal information we hold about you, or to amend, limit or delete your personal information. You may also have the right to object to further processing under certain circumstances.
We also respect the rights you may have under applicable laws to receive that information in a commonly used electronic format (or ask for this information to be provided in that format to a third party where feasible).
Please note that we may require you to verify your identity before allowing you to access your personal information.
In addition to the above, we may offer the following additional ways to exercise your privacy rights and preferences:
European law provides individuals located in Europe with rights to receive certain disclosures regarding the collection, use, and sharing of personal data, as well as rights to be informed, access, rectification, erasure, restrict processing, data portability and to object with respect to collected personal data. For the purposes of this European Privacy Notice, “personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
We will retain your personal data for as long as required for the purpose for which we originally processed your information, or as long as the law permits.
Legitimate business interests. We may collect, process, and maintain personal data to pursue the legitimate business interests outlined below. To determine these legitimate interests, we balance our legitimate interests against the legitimate interests and rights of you and others and only process personal data in accordance with those interests where they are not overridden by your data-protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.
Where we transfer personal information data we will seek to take account of any applicable statutory obligations relevant to personal information data transfers. In the case of transfers out of the EEA, we will, in the absence of an EC adequacy decision relevant to the destination country, seek to rely on appropriate safeguards such as a valid Privacy Shield certified US recipient or enter into appropriate EC approved standard contractual clauses (see http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/transfer/index_en.htm).
This may include the transfer of your personal data to one or more countries outside the UK and the EEA, where we (or other companies within the Kobalt Group), or our service providers maintain operations. You understand and accept that if your personal data is disclosed to third parties outside the UK and EEA those parties may be based in territories that may not have data protection provisions in law. In the case of transfers out of the UK and EEA, we will, in the absence of an EC adequacy decision relevant to the destination country, seek to rely on appropriate safeguards provided under law.
In certain circumstances, individuals located within the EEA, UK, and Switzerland are entitled to the following data protection rights regarding their personal data:
Where the processing of your personal data is based on your previously provided consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please submit a written request using the information in the Contact Us section below. We will respond to these requests in accordance with applicable data protection laws. We may ask you to verify your identity in order to help us respond efficiently to your request.
You may also have the right to lodge a complaint about our data collection and processing actions with the appropriate supervisory authority. In the UK, the appropriate authority is the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), accessible here. In the EEA, you can view the contact information for your data protection authority here.
