BluChip is a global organisation. Whilst we can have distinct legal entities (e.g., country subsidiaries) in many parts of the world, our internal processes and infrastructure are international in scope and nature and generally cross country borders. Accordingly, you should be aware that we may share your Personal Data inside BluChip and transfer it to countries in the world where we have data centres or otherwise do business, including those located outside the European Union (EU). Some of these countries do not have specific data protection laws and so may provide less legal protection for your Personal Data. In these instances, BluChip will process your Personal Data in the manner described by this Policy and in accordance with applicable law.
Like many organisations, we use third-party suppliers to collect, use and otherwise process Personal Data on our behalf. Our practice is to require such third parties to handle Personal Data in accordance with BluChip’s privacy and security policies.
Like many organisations, BluChip may reorganise its business operations around the world from time to time, whether by buying new businesses or selling or merging existing businesses. This may involve us disclosing Personal Data to prospective or actual purchasers of parts of our business, or receiving personal data from potential sellers. It is our practice to seek appropriate confidentiality protection for Personal Data disclosed in these types of transactions.
As a general rule, BluChip does not collect "Sensitive Personal Data" through its website. "Sensitive Personal Data" means Personal Data concerning racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership, or concerning health or sex life. By volunteering unsolicited sensitive Personal Data to us (e.g., by submitting your resume or an assignment application online), you expressly consent to your Personal Data being used as described in this Policy.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this Policy, or would like to request a copy of your Personal Data, then contact us through the contact web page. Also, if you consider your Personal Data to be incorrect or wish to have it deleted, then please either sign-in and update, correct or delete your profile on our website or contact us through the contact web page so that BluChip may make any necessary updates, corrections and/or deletions.
BluChip uses various technological and procedural security measures in order to protect the Personal Data we collect, use or transfer from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. However, you should be aware that, due to the open and unsecured character of the Internet, BluChip can not be responsible for the security of transmissions of the Personal Data over the Internet.
