Once the personal data is transferred to a business partner, that data will be governed as per the partner's privacy policies on which we do not have any control. Hence, we recommend that you read and understand the terms and conditions stipulated for that specific event before giving your consent.
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing of the Personal Data in our possession. This includes, for example, firewalls, password protection and other access and authentication controls. We use SSL technology to encrypt data during transmission through public internet, and we also employ application-layer security features to further anonymize Personal Data.
However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or store on the Service, and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If you believe your Personal Data has been compromised, please contact us as set forth in the “Data Controller” section.
If we learn of a security systems breach, we will inform you and the authorities of the occurrence of the breach in accordance with applicable law.
Our services are hosted on servers located across the world. Also, as a company with teams working across the world, we may process your data from different regions of the world. If you are accessing our services, you agree to your information being transferred to, stored, and processed by us and by those third parties (whom we may share your personal information) from any or all of these locations.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
The information (including Contact, Identity, Financial Transaction and other Data) that was collected from the user will be retained until the dissolution of the Entity and also for the subsequent period as mandated by the statute from time to time.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data.

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under the data protection laws in relation to your personal data. We set out below a brief description of such rights:
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us.

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Make The World Wonderful) are called “first-party cookies.” Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third-party cookies.” Third-party cookies enable third-party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g., such as advertising, interactive content, and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your device both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
We use first-party and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our websites to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our visitors to enhance the experience on our website. Third parties place cookies on our website are used for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
What types of cookies does Make The World Wonderful use?
Essential website cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our website and to use some of its features. For example, they allow us to maintain secure login sessions. If you choose to refuse these cookies, then you may still use our website through your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be restricted.
Performance and functionality cookies: These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of our website but are non-essential to its use, for example, interaction with blogs, chat rooms and forums and to enable us to differentiate between customers and guest visitors for the purposes of determining the level of permitted use of certain tools made available via the website.
Analytics and customization cookies: These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our website is being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize our website for you.
Targeting/Advertising cookies: These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you and your interests and track advertising impressions. They perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously appearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed for advertisers, helping measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns and, in some cases, selecting advertisements that are based on your interests.
Social networking cookies: These cookies are used to enable you to share pages and content that you find interesting on our website through third-party social networking and other websites. These cookies may also be used for advertising and analytics purposes.
When you share an article using a social media sharing button on our website (e.g. Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter), the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this.

See the list below for the types of first and third-party cookies placed on our website and how you can refuse such cookies.
What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our website. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of visitors from one page within our website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of outbound marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
Does Make The World Wonderful allow targeted advertising?

These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by third parties using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or such third parties to identify your name, contact details or other personally identifying details unless you choose to provide these (except that, as outlined above, we may combine certain information about your use of the website with personal information that you provide to us in online forms in order to contact you about products or services in which you may be interested).
