MISSBISH strives to only collect personal data which is necessary and adequate but not excessive in relation to the purposes set out hereinabove.
If MISSBISH requires the use of your personal data for a purpose other than those set out above, MISSBISH shall request the Users’ consent to the same. You are not eligible to use our Website unless you have the legal capacity to enter into a binding contract. If any other individual that is not the User conducts any interactions on our Website through the means of an User’s account, this would still render the User liable. If the User authorizes a third person to use the account, the User agrees to bring these Terms to his or her attention before he or she uses the account.
MISSBISH may retain certain information associated with Users’ account in our archives for analytical purposes and for recordkeeping integrity. The periods for which we retain Users’ information shall depend on the purpose for which MISSBISH collects and uses the same.
MISSBISH will not retain Users’ personal information for longer than is necessary for our business purposes or for legal requirements. MISSBISH may, however, retain certain information for a period of time after Users have terminated their accounts with us, for reasons such as when the retainment of such information is necessary for MISSBISH to meet legal obligations or to exercise, defend or establish legal rights.
MISSBISH wants Users to feel confident about using the MISSBISH Website, and we are committed to protecting the information we collect. While no website can guarantee security, we have implemented and maintain appropriate physical, administrative, technical, and organisational measures to protect the personal information Users provide us against unauthorized or unlawful access, use of disclosure, and against accidental loss, damage, alteration or destruction. For example, only authorized employees are permitted to access personal information, and they only may do so for permitted business functions. In addition, we use encryption when transmitting Users’ personal information between Users’ system and ours, and between our system and those of the parties with whom we share sensitive information, and we employ firewalls and intrusion detection systems to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to Users’ information. We endeavor to ensure that Users’ personal information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, and complete.
