We require our Service Providers to only use any personal information for the purposes of providing these services to us.
We will disclose Information pursuant to a lawful order, subpoena, warrant or other legal requirement issued by a court, tribunal, regulator or other person with jurisdiction to compel disclosure of Your personal information.

Legal Basis for Processing
In connection with Services provided to individuals outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), we process any personal information with consent except where otherwise permitted or required by law. For example, we may be permitted by law to collect, use or disclose personal information without consent to comply with a subpoena or court order, or to comply with the rules of court regarding the production of records. Your consent may be expressed or implied, depending on the circumstances and the sensitivity of the personal information in question.
In connection with Services provided to individuals in the EEA, we rely on one of the following legal grounds (as appropriate) to process personal information:
- To enter and perform a contract with you or to perform any steps you require from us before entering into a contract.
- To pursue our legitimate interests in establishing, managing or concluding our relationship with you.
- Where you have specifically consented to us processing your personal information.
- To comply with our legal obligations and establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.
Where personal information is processed with consent, you may withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. In order to withdraw consent, You must provide notice to Us in writing.
Personal information is maintained electronically on the CTTL’s servers or those of its Service Providers. We will retain personal information for only as long as required to fulfill the identified purposes or as required by law. Personal information that is no longer required to fulfill the identified purposes will be destroyed, erased or made anonymous according to the guidelines and procedures established by The CTTL.
Storage Outside of the United States
Your personal information may be processed by Us or Our Service Providers outside of your home jurisdiction. While outside of your home jurisdiction, personal information will be subject to the laws of the country in which it is processed, which may not be as protective as the laws of your home jurisdictions.

We protect personal information by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information, that are designed to protect against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification.
Our methods of protection include:
- Physical measures, such as filing cabinets which are kept locked when not in use and restricted access, both to Our place of business in general and to internal offices as well;
- Organization measures, such as security access on a need to know basis; and
- Technological measures, such as the use of passwords, firewalls and encryption.
