4. International transfers of your personal data
In this Section 4, we provide information about the circumstances in which your personal data may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
We have offices and facilities in the United States of America (“USA”) and Canada. The European Commission has made an “adequacy decision” with respect to the data protection laws of each of these countries. Transfers to each of these countries will be protected by appropriate safeguards, namely the use of standard data protection clauses adopted or approved by the European Commission, a copy of which can be obtained from https://ec.europa.eulinfollaw/low-topic/data-protection/data-transfers - outside-eu/adequacv-protection-personal-data-non-eu-countries-en
Our hosted email servers are situated in the USA.

We use a third party, Brighter IR Limited (“Brighter IR”), to process information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our Stock Exchange announcement alerts and sending you any other information onANGLE plc that we consider would be of interest.
5. Retaining and deleting personal data
This Section 5 sets out our data retention policies and procedure, which are designed to help ensure that we comply with our legal obligations in relation to the retention and deletion of personal data.
Personal data that we process for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those purposes.
We will retain your personal data as follows: (a) Usage date will be retained for 26 months following the website visit date, after which it will be deleted.
In some cases it is not possible for us to specify in advance the periods for which your personal data will be retained. In such cases, we will determine the period of retention based on the following criteria: a) the period of retention of contact data will be determined based on how long you consent to receive our communication alerts; (b) the period of retention of enquiry data will be determined based on the nature of the enquiry. For example, where the enquiry relates to any of our products in the field, the data may be held to monitor product performance, until the product line is no longer in use and any warranties or product claim periods have expired. Where an enquiry relates to a collaboration, partnership or licensing agreement, the data may be retained for a period of time until it is no longer considered likely that an agreement will be made, or for a further six years after the agreement or collaboration expires, or later, if the agreement or collaboration terms require. The enquiry data held by SoBold will be retained for 26 months following the enquiry date, afterwhich it will be deleted. (c) the period of retention of correspondence data will be determined based on similar criteria as in (b) above.
Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Section 5, we may retain your personal data where such retention 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.
We may update this Policy from time to time by publishing a new version on our website.
You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes to this Policy.
7. Your rights
In this Section 7, we have summarised the rights that you have under data protection law. Some of the rights arecomplex, and not all of the details have been included in our summaries. Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of these rights.
Your principal rights under data protection law are: (a) the right to be informed; (b) the right of access; (c) the right to rectification; (d) the right to erasure; (e) the right to restrict processing; (f) the right to data portability; (g) the right to complain to a supervisory authority; and (h) the right to withdraw consent.
You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your personal data and, where we do, access to the personal data, together with certain additional information. That additional information includes details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your personal data within one month of receiving your request. The first copy will be provided free of charge (so long as the information requested is not manifestly unfounded or excessive) but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee.
You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.
In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your personal data without undue delay. Those circumstances include: the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to consent-based processing; you object to the processing under certain rules of applicable data protection law; the processing is for direct marketing purposes; and the personal data have been unlawfully processed. However, there are exclusions of the right to erasure. The general exclusions include where processing is necessary: for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue to store your personal data. However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legalclaims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.
You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims
You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal data for this purpose.
You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes on grounds relating to your particular situation, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
You have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and electronic format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office. You can contact them by calling +44 (0)303123 1113 or go online to www.ico.org.uk/concerns. If you are based outside the UK, you have the right to lodgeyour complaint with the relevant data protection regulator in the EU member state of your habitual residence,your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.
You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by written notice to us.
