4. CALIFORNIA PRIVACY NOTICE
“Legal Categories” of Personal Information
The law requires us to tell you about the personal information we collect about you in a certain way – specifically, we need to tie it back to “legal categories” of personal information that are listed in the law. To do this, we bundled up the information we gave you above in this Privacy Notice and matched the different types of personal information we collect about you with the legal category. To make things easier to understand, we’ve put this information in a chart that shows you four things:
- The legal category of personal information,
- Examples of the types of personal information included in each legal category,
- The purpose for why we collect and use your personal information for each legal category; and
- The business purposes for which we share your personal information and with whom.
We’ve included these things in the California Privacy Chart at the end of this Privacy Notice. At the end of the California Privacy Chart, we also included a list of Information We Disclose for a Business Purpose.
Your Rights and Choices
For all personal information that we collect about you, you may have the following rights or choices that we will accommodate where your requests meet legal and regulatory requirements and do not risk making our other data less secure or changing our other data.

Verifying Your Identity: To protect you and your information, we may ask you to confirm certain information before we honor your request.

6. EUROPEAN PRIVACY NOTICE
This section of our Privacy Notice applies to residents of the European Economic Area (EEA).
International Data Transfers
THG primarily stores the personal information we collect in the United States. To facilitate THG’s global operations, staff who work for THG and/or our service providers may transfer and access such personal information from locations around the world. This will involve transferring your personal information outside the EEA.
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
Whenever we transfer your personal information out of the EEA, we will ensure one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- We will only transfer your personal information to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal information by the European Commission; or
- We may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal information the same protection it has in Europe; or
- We will ensure there is some other protection in place which has been approved by the European Commission as giving personal information the same protection it has in Europe.
Your Privacy Rights
Under certain circumstances, individuals within the European Economic Area have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal information as set out below:
- Request accessto your personal information, to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
- Request correctionof the personal information that we hold about you if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
- Request erasureof your personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal information to comply with local law.
- Object to processingof your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
- Request restriction of processingof your personal information if: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
- Request the transferof your personal information to you or to a third party in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
- Complain to a government regulator if you are not satisfied with our response, depending on your location.
Legal Bases For Processing
This section describes some of the legal bases we rely on to process your personal information. We may process your personal information for more than one legal basis depending on the specific purpose(s) for which we are using your personal information, including the following legal bases:
- Contracts. Where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you, including to provide you products or services.
- Legitimate Interests. Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests. The following are non-exhaustive examples of where THG relies on legitimate interest to process personal information:
- THG has a legitimate interest in processing personal information during the employee recruitment process and for keeping records of the process. Processing data from job applicants allows us to manage the recruitment process, assess and confirm a candidate’s suitability for employment and decide to whom to offer a job.
- THG has a legitimate interest in processing personal information relating to our existing customers in order to manage our business relationship and provide communications and information that may be of interest, including marketing communications.
- THG has a legitimate interest in using cookies as outlined in this Privacy Notice.
- Legal Obligations. Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
Generally we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal information.
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal information (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
7. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We strive to take appropriate security measures to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, only authorized employees are allowed to access personal information, and they may only access it for permitted business functions. We also use technology to protect your information, including encrypting sensitive personal information that is transferred to or from our systems.
In general, we keep your information for as long as we need it to carry out the purposes described in this Privacy Notice, and as necessary to comply with our records-management policies and laws that apply to us. We also keep your information when we need to comply with other legal obligations we might have, such as in connection with a lawsuit, complaint, or investigation.
While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse, or alteration will never occur, we use reasonable efforts to prevent it. Please keep in mind that no method of storage or transmission over the Internet is completely secure, so your use of our services and provision of information to us is at your own risk.
Our website may contain links to other sites on the Internet that are owned and operated by third parties. The information practices of those websites linked to our website are not covered by this Privacy Notice. We are not responsible for the privacy policies of other websites to which our website links.
8. CHANGES TO THIS NOTICE
We reserve the right to modify or change this Privacy Notice at any time. When we make a material change to this Privacy Notice, we will inform you by changing the date on this page noting when the Privacy Notice was last updated.
