Sensitive information between your browser and our Website is transferred in encrypted form using secure socket layer (“SSL”) or equivalent cryptographic protocols using certificates issued by a trusted third party authority.
How Long We Retain Your Personal Data:
We will hold the above information for as long as is necessary in order to conduct the processing detailed in the table above, deal with any specific issues that may raise, or otherwise as is required by law or any relevant regulatory body. Some personal data may need to be retained for longer than the organization you represent is our Customer. This to ensure Sentry AI can comply with applicable laws and internal compliance procedures, including retaining your email address for marketing communication suppression if you have opted not to receive any further marketing. If information is used for two purposes, we will retain it until the purpose with the latest period expires but we will stop using it for the purpose with a shorter period when that period expires.
We restrict access to your personal information to those persons who need to use it for the relevant purpose(s). Our retention periods are based on business needs and your information that is no longer needed is either irreversibly anonymized (and the anonymized information may be retained) or securely destroyed. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the personal risk or harm from unauthorized use or disclosure, the purpose for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Exports Outside the EEA and the UK (for EU and UK residents)
Your personal information may be collected, processed and stored by Sentry AI in the United States and other countries where our servers reside. Please be aware that the privacy protections and legal requirements, including the rights of authorities to access your personal information, in some of these countries may not be equivalent to those in your country. If you in the European Economic Area or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from United States law, you agree to the transfer of your personal data to the United States and other countries where Sentry AI operates.
Your personal information may be accessed by staff or suppliers in, transferred to, and/or stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or the United Kingdom (UK) in which data protection laws may be of a lower standard than in the EEA or the UK. Regardless of location or whether the person is an employee or contractor, we will impose the same data protection safeguards that is required under GDPR.
Certain countries outside the EEA and the UK have been approved by the European Commission and the Information Commissioner’s Office as providing essentially equivalent protections to EEA and UK data protection laws and therefore no additional safeguards are required to export personal information to these jurisdictions. In countries, which have not had these approvals, we will transfer it subject to European Commission and Information Commissioner’s Office approved contractual terms that impose equivalent data protection obligations directly on the recipient, unless we are permitted under applicable data protection law to make such transfers without such formalities.
Please contact us if you would like further details of the specific safeguards applied to the export of your personal data.
