How do We Process our Data?

We will only collect and process personal data about you where we have lawful basis.

Transfers of Personal Data

We may transfer your personal data across geographical borders to other entities. Where your personal data has been transferred to members of our group of companies, subsidiaries, associates/affiliates and/or to third parties located outside of Sri Lanka, the transfer of your personal data is carried out under organizational, contractual and legal measures and with reasonably adequate levels of protection implemented as well as any additional local legal requirements for the parties receiving this data in order to safeguard your personal data.

Third-party vendors

When using third-party vendors or agents to which Wavenet intends to transfer personal data to, we shall perform adequate due diligence to help ensure the security of such information, including ensuring that such third parties have entered into a written agreement with Wavenet requiring such third party to provide at least the same level of privacy protection as Wavenet. However, Wavenet shall not be liable for any damage and/or loss caused to Personal Data caused by a third party provided that causes for such damage and/or loss are not attributable to any act and/or omission of WAVENET.

Such other websites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal data. You will need to contact these entities directly if you have any questions about their use of the information.

Steps we take to ensure your privacy

The security of your personal data is important to us and we use generally accepted, industry standard tools and techniques to protect your personal data against unauthorized disclosure. However, no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Some steps taken by us to protect personal data are as follows,

A) Perimeter security
We use firewalls to secure the perimeter of our information network and monitor our systems regularly.

B) Data security
An authentication and authorization mechanism based on (i) user identification (ID) and password, is used to restrict access to user accounts. Each authenticated user only has access to the information that he or she is authorized to use. We use physical, administrative, and technical procedures to limit access to personal information.

c) Transaction security
All personal data exchanged between our servers and your web browser is encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer.

How long do we retain your personal data?

We will retain your personal data only for as long as such data is necessary for the purposes it was collected for. The retention period for personal data may also be affected by the requirements of applicable laws or a legitimate business requirement. In all cases such personal data may be held for a longer period of time where there is a legal or regulatory reason to do so (in which case it will be deleted once no longer required for the legal or regulatory purpose).

Once personal data surpasses its retention period and if there is no valid reason to retain such personal data, the personal data will be securely disposed of.
