6.     Your rights

If you’re in Pakistan, you have these rights:

You can ask to see your personal data (known as a “data subject access request”). This lets you get a copy of the personal data we have about you and make sure we’re handling it legally.

You can ask us to correct any data we have about you. This lets you fix any incomplete or wrong data we have about you, though we might need to check the new data you give us to make sure it’s right.

You can choose to take back your consent for us to use your personal data at any time. This doesn’t change the legality of any processing we’ve already done based on the consent you gave before.

Usually, there’s no fee to access your personal data or to use any of your other rights. But if your request seems unfair, keeps happening, or is too much, we might charge a reasonable fee. Or, we might say no to your request in these cases.

We aim to answer all valid requests within a month. Sometimes, if your request is really tricky or you’ve made a lot of them, it might take us longer. If this happens, we’ll let you know and keep you in the loop.

8.     Who We Share Your Data With

We might need to share your personal info with the following parties for the reasons mentioned in section 4 above:

We’ll only keep your personal information for as long as we need it to achieve the reasons we collected it for as mentioned in section 4. This includes meeting any legal, accounting, or reporting obligations.

To decide how long we keep your personal info, we think about:

  • How much and what kind of info it is
  • The risk of unauthorized use or disclosure of your info
  • Why we’re using your info and if we can achieve the same goals in other ways
  • Any legal rules we need to follow
