HOW WE RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

The information you provide to us will be retained by us in accordance with applicable laws. We will take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify personal information we hold if it’s no longer needed for the purposes set out above.

However, if you do choose to share your information with us publicly (for example, photos or footage on social media), then it’s possible that other people may have copied this information during the time that it was live, and therefore use of it is beyond our control.

We will keep your email address until 1 month after you unsubscribe from the mailing list – you can do this at any time using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email we send you.

WHERE IS DATA STORED? 

Your data will be stored on Peccadillo Pictures own internal systems in our headquarters in London.

We also use cloud based services to store and process data about contacts.  Some of these cloud providers store data in the United States. In these cases the providers are certified under the EU-US privacy shield framework (see https://www.privacyshield.gov/welcome ). In addition to this our contracts with these providers include clauses which guarantee that they provide the same safeguards for the data and rights to our members as if the data were stored in the EU. More information about the security measures put in place by these providers is linked to below.

We may choose to use other service providers in future, if we do they will be bound by the same strict rules which guarantee that the same safeguards are in place, and your rights remain the same. If we change our service providers then we will update the details on this page so you can always return to this page to see where your data is being stored.
