We acknowledge our obligation to ensure your data is protected against accidental loss or disclosure, destruction and abuse. We have implemented safeguarding processes for this.
Layla Diamonds has taken the following steps to protect personal data, which it holds or to which it has access:
i. It may appoint or employ individuals with specific responsibilities for:
· Processing and controlling of data.
· The comprehensive reviewing and auditing of its data protection systems and procedures.
· Overseeing the effectiveness and integrity of all the data that must be protected.

iii. It can account for all personal data it holds, where it comes from, who it is shared with and also who it might be shared with.
iv. It carries out risk assessments to identify any vulnerability in its personal data handling and processing, and to take steps in reducing the risks of mishandling and potential breaches of data security.
The process includes an assessment of the impact of both the use and potential misuse of personal data.
v.

Protecting your information
As you know, the internet is not a 100% secure method for communication and so we are unable to guarantee the security of any information you send to us (or we send to you) via the internet. We are not responsible for any damages which you, or others, may suffer as a result of the loss of confidentiality of such information. We take reasonable precautions to protect your information. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. We use our best endeavours to ensure it is secure on all our online and IT systems as outlined above.
We will never store or process your card details/card payment data/bank account details ourselves though they are processed and may be stored by our third party service providers. We encrypt your payment card details in your browser and securely transfer this data to our third party payment provider to process a payment/provide a refund and/or to prevent and detect fraud against either you or us.
The security of your financial transactions is extremely important to us and we are committed to protecting you as best as we can.
9. How long do we keep your data?
Layla Diamonds keeps your data only for as long as it is necessary for us. You are entitled to exercise your right to erasure of this data by making a request verbally or in writing to us (phone call, post or email) though we recommend a written request.
Once we no longer need your data, we will take steps to delete it. Layla Diamonds conducts annual checks of personal data that we hold to ensure everything has been deleted at the end of its retention period.
10. Automated decision making
No decision will be made about you solely on the basis of automated decision making (where a decision is taken about you using an electronic system without human involvement), which has a significant impact on you.
11. Your rights in respect of your data
Data protection laws provide you with specific rights in relation to the data we hold about you. These rights are set out as follows:
Withdrawing your consent means that we will stop processing the data that you had previously given us consent to use. There will be no consequences for withdrawing your consent. However, in some cases, we may continue to use the data where so permitted by having a legitimate reason for doing so.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights explained above, please contact us as soon as possible, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
