10. DATA BREACH

A privacy breach occurs when there is unauthorized access to or collection, use, disclosure or disposal of personal information. You will be notified about data breaches when PingPong believes you are likely to be at risk or serious harm. For example, a data breach may be likely to result in serious financial harm or harm to your mental or physical well-being. In the event that PingPong becomes aware of a security breach which has resulted or may result in unauthorized access, use or disclosure of personal information PingPong will promptly investigate the matter and notify the applicable Supervisory Authority not later than 72 hours after having become aware of it, unless the personal data breach is unlikely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons.   


11. CONTROLS FOR DO-NOT-TRACK FEATURES
  

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this privacy policy.  

 

12. FOR EEA RESIDENTS, DO WE TRANSFER YOUR PERSONAL DATA OUTSIDE THE EEA?

As an international payments company, we sometimes need to share your personal data with financial institutions and service providers outside the EEA. For example, if you transfer money to an account outside the EEA. We will make sure that we only share your data to be able to provide you with the services you want from us and that the data will only be retained when laws or regulations require it. We have agreements in place with all third parties that ensure your rights under GDPR.

The GDPR primarily applies to controllers and processors located in the European Economic Area (the EEA) with some exceptions.

GDPR restricts transfers of personal data outside the EEA, or the protection of the GDPR, unless the rights of the individuals in respect of their personal data is protected in another way, or one of a limited number of exceptions applies.

A transfer of personal data outside the protection of the GDPR (which we refer to as a ‘restricted transfer’), most often involves a transfer from inside the EEA to a country outside the EEA.

13. AUTOMATED DECISION MAKING

The GDPR has provisions on automated individual decision making (making a decision solely by automated means without any human involvement); and profiling (automated processing of personal data to evaluate certain things about an individual). PingPong does not use automated decision-making processes.

 

14. DO WE MAKE UPDATES TO THIS POLICY?  

In Short:  Yes, we will update this policy as necessary to stay compliant with relevant laws.  

We may update this privacy policy from time to time. The updated version will be indicated by an updated “Revised” date and the updated version will be effective as soon as it is accessible. If we make material changes to this privacy policy, we may notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes or by directly sending you a notification. We encourage you to review this privacy policy frequently to be informed of how we are protecting your information.
