Additionally, if you choose not to provide your personal data, we may not be able to provide you with our products or services or with other support or responses.

LMSC takes security measures in line with data protection regulations. LMSC has security measures in place designed to prevent data loss, to preserve data integrity, and to regulate access to the data. Only authorized LMSC employees, and authorized employees of our Third-Party service providers’ processing data on our behalf, have access to your personal data. All LMSC employees who have access to your personal data are required to adhere to the LMSC Privacy Notice and procedures. In addition, Data Processing Agreements are in place with any Third-Party service providers acting as data processors for LMSC that have access to your personal data, to ensure that the level of security required in your jurisdiction is in place, and that your personal data is processed only as instructed by LMSC.

Please see Question 4 – Who does LMSC disclose your personal data to and why?

Your personal data will only be used for the purposes for which you provided it to LMSC, as indicated to you at the time you provided your personal data. It will only be used for direct marketing purposes if you have provided consent for this.

It may also be disclosed, including a disclosure to entities based outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”), to Third Parties (as part of the information generally contained in business) in the event of a sale of the business, or a reorganisation of the business, or as otherwise required or permitted by law or applicable regulator.

LMSC will never share your personal data with any Third-Party business organisation that intends to use it for their own purposes, other than as required by law. With your consent, LMSC may share your personal data with Third-Parties (i.e. parties other than LMSC) such as those who assist us in providing the products and services, but only in the strictly limited circumstances set out below:

Our “Third-Party Data Processors” (service providers such as our fulfilment and activation partners, and digital agencies, hosting providers, data storage providers and other technical partners) who help us administer this website, or process the data submitted to it, may have access to your data. Some of these business partners may be located outside the country where you accessed this website.

You have the right to ask LMSC to provide you with all the information it stores on you.
You have the right to ask LMSC to rectify, block, complete and delete your personal data or to restrict its use.
You have the right to request additional information about the handling of your personal data.
You also have the right to object to the processing of your data by LMSC in some circumstances and, where we have asked for consent to process your data, to withdraw this consent.
Additionally, you may contact our Data Protection Officer at [email protected] if you would like assistance with any of the aforementioned rights.

There are exceptions to these rights, however. For example, access to personal data may be denied in some circumstances if making the information available would reveal personal information about another person or if LMSC is legally prevented from disclosing such information.

In addition, LMSC may be able to retain data even if you withdraw your consent, where LMSC can demonstrate that it has a legal requirement to process your data.

In certain circumstances there may be a legal requirement for your personal data to be transferred across international borders. It may be transferred to countries that have different levels of data protection laws to the country from where you submitted your personal data. LMSC (as Data Controller and Data Exporter) has put in place security measures for the export of personal data from its jurisdiction. Where sending data outside of the EEA, LMSC will make arrangements with entities receiving your personal data that they shall ensure that security measures are in place, and that your personal data is processed only in accordance with EU Data Protection laws.

If data is transferred from within the EEA to a jurisdiction outside the EEA, it is done so as a restricted transfer and will only be undertaken if necessary for the completion of a contract or if it is required for a relevant legal claim. If you wish to know more about international transfers of your personal data, you may contact our Data Protection Officer at [email protected]
