5.2 Sensitive information between your browser and our Website is transferred in encrypted form using secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) or equivalent cryptographic protocols using certificates issued by a trusted third-party authority. When transmitting sensitive information, you should always make sure that your browser can validate the Thunderhead certificate.
5.3 All information you provide to us is stored on our, or our subcontractors’, secure servers and accessed and used subject to our security policies and standards. We use hosted services (such as Oracle Marketing Cloud and Salesforce) in the course of our business, including for the provision of marketing and sales activities.

6. EXPORTS OUTSIDE THE EEA
6.1 Your personal information may be accessed by staff or suppliers in, transferred to, and/or stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (EEA) in which data protection laws may be of a lower standard than in the EEA. Regardless of location or whether the person is an employee or contractor, we will impose the same data protection safeguards that we deploy inside the EEA.
6.2 Certain countries outside the EEA have been approved by the European Commission as providing essentially equivalent protections to EEA data protection laws and therefore no additional safeguards are required to export personal information to these jurisdictions. In countries which have not had these approvals, we will either ask for your consent to the transfer or transfer it subject to European Commission approved contractual terms that impose equivalent data protection obligations directly on the recipient, or the Privacy Shield Framework unless we are permitted under applicable data protection law to make such transfers without such formalities.
6.3 Please contact us if you would like to further details of the specific safeguards applied to the export of your personal data.
7. EU-U.S. & SWISS-U.S. PRIVACY SHIELD

7.3 Thunderhead commits to cooperate with The UK Information Commissioner’s Office and/or the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner and comply with the advice given by UK Information Commissioner’s Office and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner with regard to personal data transferred from the EU, EEA and Switzerland.
8. HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL DATA
8.1 We will hold the above information for as long as is necessary in order to conduct the processing detailed in the table above, deal with any specific issues that may raise, or otherwise as is required by law or any relevant regulatory body. Some personal data may need to be retained for a longer period of time to ensure Thunderhead can comply with applicable laws and internal compliance procedures, including retaining your email address for marketing communication suppression if you have opted not to receive any further marketing.
8.2 If information is used for two purposes, we will retain it until the purpose with the latest period expires but we will stop using it for the purpose with a shorter period when that period expires.
8.3 We restrict access to your personal information to those persons who need to use it for the relevant purpose(s). Our retention periods are based on business needs and your information that is no longer needed is either irreversibly anonymised (and the anonymised information may be retained) or securely destroyed. 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.
