SHARING OF INFORMATION
Brights may disclose your personal information to any competent law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court, or other third parties where Brights believes disclosure is necessary (a) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (b) to exercise, establish or defend its legal rights, or (c) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person.
LEGAL BASIS OF PROCESSING
Brights will normally collect personal information from you only (a) where it needs the personal information to perform a contract with you, (b) where the processing is in its legitimate interests and is not overridden by your rights, or (c) where it has your consent to do so. In some cases, Brights may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.
If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which Brights collects and uses your personal information, please contact Brights using the contact details provided under the “Contacts”.
USE OF INFORMATION
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, Brights considers the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which Brights processes your personal information, and whether it can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
Brights protects your personal information in the same way that it protects its other confidential information, such as storing it on secure servers that only select Brights personnel have access to and by encrypting it to help prevent access by any unauthorized parties. Brights has put in place procedures to deal with any personal information breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach when legally required to do so.
