Who we share your data with
We may occasionally hire companies to provide services on our behalf, including but not limited to handling customer support enquiries, processing transactions or customer freight shipping. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. KatChant.com takes reasonable steps to ensure that these organisations are bound by confidentiality and privacy obligations in relation to the protection of your personal information.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
You also have the right to ask us to delete your data. If you would like to do so, please let us know. You may be required to put your request in writing for security reasons. Also, you can lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, an independent public authority established by an EU Member State, if you feel we have not handled your personal data properly. Our supervisory authority is Ireland’s Data Protection Commission, www.dataprotection.ie.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
We may also use companies to deliver services and process your data on our behalf, including the delivery of postal mail, sending emails and text messages, processing payment or bank details and analysing stakeholder trends anonymously to assist us in offering better services.
Financial transactions relating to our services are handled by our payment services providers. We will share transaction data with our payment services providers only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing your payments, if any, and dealing with complaints and queries relating to such transactions and protecting us from fraudulent transactions.

We process changes to your details when you provide them to us.
We may disclose your personal data where such disclosure is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, or in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person (for example to government bodies for tax purposes or law enforcement agencies for the prevention and detection of crime, subject to such bodies providing us with a relevant and lawful request in writing). We may also disclose your personal data where such disclosure is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, whether in court proceedings or in an administrative or out-of-court procedure.
We may update this policy from time to time by publishing a new version on our website.
How we protect your data

Processing in a privacy context means doing anything to your personal data. This can refer to collecting, manipulating, storing, disclosing, or erasing data, among other actions.
