Your privacy rights
Under certain circumstances, if and to the extent provided by any law applicable to your personal data, you may have certain rights with respect to your personal data. Such rights may include the right to access, update, rectify, or erase certain personal data that we have about you or restrict or object to certain activities with respect to your personal data. To the extent you have such rights, you may exercise them as described herein.
AS A PROCESSOR:
In all circumstances where we process your personal data on behalf of a business customer, our business customer is the data controller or data owner and is responsible for receiving and responding to your request to exercise any rights afforded to you under any such applicable law. In these circumstances, you will have to address your request to the relevant business customer in the first instance. In this case Hologram will not assist you directly but will assist our business customer in answering your request, if and to the extent required by applicable law or by our agreement with such business customer.
AS A CONTROLLER:
Where we process your personal data as a data controller or data owner, you may exercise any rights you may have under applicable privacy laws by contacting us using the details in the “Contact Us” section above. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We may retain your personal data as long as necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, including to comply with and enforce the terms of our agreements with our business customers, and beyond such time to the extent legally permitted and based on our legal obligations or legitimate interests (e.g. in retaining data for the purposes of responding to possible disputes or complaints).
Hologram uses technical, organizational and physical safeguards designed to protect information from loss, theft, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We cannot, however, guarantee that any safeguards or security measures will be sufficient to prevent a security issue.
The Products and Services are not intended for children under the age of sixteen (16) and we do not knowingly collect data relating to such children. If we learn that we have collected personal data through our Products or Services from a child under 16 without the consent of the child’s parent or guardian as required by law, we will comply with applicable legal requirements to delete the information. We encourage parents or guardians with concerns to contact us.

Section 4: International data transfers
We may transfer your personal data outside of the EEA and/or UK. Some of these recipients are located in countries in respect of which either the European Commission and/or UK Government (as and where applicable) has issued adequacy decisions, in which case, the recipient’s country is recognized as providing an adequate level of data protection under UK and/or European data protection laws (as applicable) and the transfer is therefore permitted under Article 45 of the GDPR.
Some recipients of your personal data may be located in countries outside the EEA and/or the UK for which the European Commission or UK Government (as and where applicable) has not issued adequacy decisions in respect of the level of data protection in such countries (“Restricted Countries”). For example, the United States is a Restricted Country. Where we transfer your personal data to a recipient in a Restricted Country, we will either:
- enter into appropriate data transfer agreements based on so-called Standard Contractual Clauses approved from time-to-time under GDPR Art. 46 by the European Commission, the UK Information Commissioner’s Office or UK Government (as and where applicable); or
- rely on other appropriate means permitted by the EU/UK GDPR, which establish that such recipients will provide an adequate level of data protection and that appropriate technical and organizational security measures are in place to protect personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, and against all other unlawful forms of processing.
You may ask for a copy of such appropriate data transfer agreements by contacting us using the contact details above.
Where we receive requests for information from law enforcement or regulators, we carefully validate these requests before disclosing any personal data.
