        1. 6.2.3. Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US.
      5. 6.3. Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of South Africa.
    8. 7. Data security
      1. 7.1. We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed by using the following methods/facilities:
        1. 7.1.1. All prescriptions have been encrypted and myScript does not have access to the prescriptions generated.
        2. 7.1.2. Only the defined and authorised users have access to these.
        3. 7.1.3. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a legitimate need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
        4. 7.1.4. User password hashing: The password provided by the user when registering is hashed and it is not stored. This means, there is no way of telling what the user password was, should it get forgotten.
        5. 7.1.5. Personal information encryption: We make use of Ansible vault to anonymize personal information before storing it.
        6. 7.1.6. Password-Secured Database: The database is protected by a 32-character password stored in an encrypted password vault. Only 2 people in the company have access to this vault store.
        7. 7.1.7. Session management: Once a user has signed in, we assign a token for the session. This token is valid for the session and expires after logoff or if the user leaves the platform active for a few minutes.
        8. 7.1.8. Identity validation process: A user has to verify their account before accessing the platform, which in turn reduces identity theft.
        9. Customer details will be stored by myScript separately from card details which are entered by the client on DPO PayGate’s secure site. For more detail on DPO PayGate refer to www.paygate.co.za
      2. 7.2. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
    9. 8. Data retention
      1. 8.1. We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
      2. 8.2. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data, any other South African applicable law requiring us to retain the data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
      3. 8.3. Details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal data are available from us by contacting us.
      4. 8.4. In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data; see below for further information.
      5. 8.5. In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (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.
    10. 9. Your legal rights
      1. 9.1. Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. Please contact us to find out more about, or manifest, these rights:
        1. 9.1.1. request access to your personal data;
        2. 9.1.2. request correction of your personal data;
        3. 9.1.3. request erasure of your personal data;
        4. 9.1.4. object to the processing of your personal data;
        5. 9.1.5. request a restriction of processing your personal data;
        6. 9.1.6. request transfer of your personal data; and/or
        7. 9.1.7. right to withdraw consent.
      2. 9.2. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
      3. 9.3. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
      4. 9.4. We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
      5. 9.5. You have the right to:
        1. 9.5.1. Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
        2. 9.5.2. Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
        3. 9.5.3. Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no valid reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data 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 data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be communicated to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
        4. 9.5.4. Object to processing of your personal where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data 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.
        5. 9.5.5. Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:
          1. 9.5.5.1. if you want us to establish the data's accuracy;
          2. 9.5.5.2. where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it;
          3. 9.5.5.3. 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
          4. 9.5.5.4. you have objected to our use of your data, but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
        6. 9.5.6. Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data 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 on a contract with you.
        7. 9.5.7. Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain Website access or Services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent. Please take note that regardless of your right to withdraw consent under POPI, other South African legislation applies and may require that we continue to process your data in order to comply with anti-corruption, crime-fighting and/or other national legislation, which you expressly understand and agree to.
