Legal Basis for Processing Personal Information
Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which it is collected.
We will, however, normally collect personal information from you only in the following cases: (i) where we need the personal information to carry out a contract with you, for example when you purchase our products; (ii) where the processing is in our legitimate interest and not overridden by your rights, for example to connect our marketing to you; or (iii) where we have your consent to do so. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.
If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).
If we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), these interests will generally relate to: operating our platform and communicating with you as necessary to provide our services to you, responding to your queries, improving our platform, undertaking marketing, or for the purposes of detecting or preventing illegal activities. We may have other legitimate interests and if appropriate we will clarify at the time what those legitimate interests are.
Protecting the security of your personal information is important to us. We use reasonable precautions to protect our users’ personal information and to store it securely. Sensitive information that is transmitted to us online is encrypted and is transmitted to us securely. In addition, access to all our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personal identifiable information. Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. Unfortunately, however, while we strive to protect your privacy, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed for 100% security. Therefore, any personal information you submit to us online is at your own risk.

Sandbox, its distribution partners and third-party service providers also operate around the world. This means that when we collect your personal information we may process it in various countries.
We retain personal information which we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so for example, to provide you with a service you have requested, to retain your information for future marketing purposes or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize 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.
