Where is your Personal Information stored?

Our servers are located in the United States of America. However, Wonderxchange FC uses service providers based around the world. Consequently, your Personal Information may be processed in other countries such as in United Kingdom and Europe, which has enough laws that protect privacy rights extensively, also informations might be processed in countries where the local laws do not provide the same level of data protection as those in Europe. If we do transfer your Personal Information to other territories, we will take proper steps to ensure that your privacy rights are appropriately protected by appropriate safeguards.

In all instances where we disclose your personal information to third parties, we will ensure that your information receives an adequate level of protection. 

We will keep your Personal Information for as long as we need it for the purposes set out above, and so this period will vary depending on your interactions with us and the nature of the Personal Information. For example, where you have bought a merchandise from us, we will keep a record of your purchase for the period necessary for invoicing and warranty purposes. We may also keep a record of correspondence with you (for example if you have made a complaint) for as long as is necessary to protect us from a legal claim. Where we no longer have a need to keep your information, we delete or anonymize the relevant information. Please note that where you unsubscribe from our marketing communications, we will keep a record of your email address and/or phone number (as applicable) to ensure we do not send you marketing emails in future.

How do we protect information?

10.1 We take the security of your Personal Information very seriously. We have put in place technical and organisational security measures to prevent the loss or unauthorised access of your Personal Information. Your Personal Information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessed when necessary. A limited number of people have special access rights to such systems and they are required to keep the information confidential. When you place orders or access your Personal Information, we offer the use of a secure server. All credit/debit card information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be accessed only as stated above.
