We retain your personal data for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose(s) for which they were obtained and consistent with applicable law. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include:
(a) The length of time we have an on-going relationship with you and provide the requested products/services to you (for example, for as long as you have an account with us or keep using the services/mobile applications), or to enable you to conduct your activities and meet your retention requirements. For example, as a rule of thumb regarding customer personal data, we seek to re-assess the need to retain your data couple years after you cease to be a registered customer (for example, to allow us to answer complaints or inquiries that may still arise). However, there are also other factors that may influence that period as set out below.
(b) Whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject (for example, certain laws require us to keep records of your transactions for a certain period before we can delete them).
(c) Whether retention is advisable considering our legal position (such as, regarding applicable statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations).
Yara is concerned about your privacy and are committed to keeping personal data secure. We have implemented appropriate technical, physical and organizational measures to protect your personal data from loss, misuse or alteration. We limit access to personal data to those who have a business need.
Transfer of personal data to a third country outside of the EEA that does not provide adequate protection will only take place if appropriate safeguards are provided, e.g., by Yara's Binding Corporate Rules, entering into EU Standard Contractual Clauses or if the receiving party is certified under a valid international transfer mechanism.
When disclosing information to other parties as described in Section 5, we sometimes need to transfer personal data to a country outside the EEA, in order to be able to fulfil one of the purposes set out in Section 5. As an example, we may use a sub-processor established in the USA when you fill out an online form, in order to meet your request. Such transfer will only take place provided that appropriate safeguards are adduced, as described above.
If you have any questions relating to this or want to obtain a copy of the safeguards that we adduce in cases of transfers, please contact us at the contact point provided below.
