Data storage and retention:
Whitetower take reasonable steps to protect the personal data we collect from misuse, interference and loss and to protect it from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. All data is encrypted at rest and physical and digital access is heavily restricted. Data is held on our local servers and within the servers of carefully selected 3rd party cloud-based data solution providers, where required, some of which may be hosted overseas.
Data collected from third-parties is stored until such time that it is no longer reasonably required. As individuals may contact Whitetower to request suppression from our databases and those of our related suppliers, the data retention period is more than 1 year. This allows for suppressions to occur when a related request is made. It also enables us to help our clients to restrict the frequency with which they contact individuals regarding their services. When Whitetower no longer require data stored, we take reasonable steps to ensure that we destroy or de-identify the data.
Data collected from membership websites we run is stored until such time that it is no longer reasonably required. As membership of our sites is perpetual and members may contact Whitetower Digital Pty Ltd to request suppression from our marketing communications and those of our partners and their agencies, this time period may be substantial. This allows for suppressions to occur when a related request is made. It also enables us to help our clients to restrict the frequency with which they contact individuals regarding their services.
