      Your personal information may in some circumstances be transferred to locations outside of the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA) as well as within it for the purposes previously described above.  We do not transfer your personal information outside Europe as a matter of course however, where we have a requirement to transfer your personal information outside the EU/EEA, we will ensure that it is protected and transferred in a manner consistent with legal requirements applicable to the information by for instance:

      • The country to which we send the personal information may be approved by the European Commission

      Retaining your information and how we secure it

      How long FIGARO’S ALLURE keeps your personal information will vary and will depend primarily on:

      • The purpose for which we are using your personal information - we will need to keep the information for as long as is necessary for the relevant purpose
      • Legal obligations - laws or regulation may set a minimum period for which we have to keep your personal information

      • FIGARO’S ALLURE will retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes that we collected it for and for FIGARO’S ALLURE to assert or defend against legal claims.  The appropriate retention period is determined by the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure, the purposes for which we process and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

        Upon expiry of the applicable retention period we securely destroy your personal data in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. FIGARO’S ALLURE ensures that the personal information that we hold is subject to the appropriate security measures.
