At Genius we only collect and process Personal Information where we have a lawful basis to do so.

Providing us with your Personal Information is always your choice. However, the decision not to provide certain information may limit our ability to provide you with our products or services. We will not require our employees, candidates, suppliers, and customers to consent to the collection, use, or disclosure of information as a condition to the supply of a product or service, except as required to be able to supply the product or service.

Retention, Destruction and Security
Personal Information will only be retained for the period required to fulfill the purpose for which we collected it or as may be required by law. We may retain your information after you have stopped using our products and services to comply with legal obligations, maintain security, or resolve disputes. At the end of the retention period, Genius will ensure destruction or anonymization of the data.
Personal Information will be protected by security safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity level of the information. Genius has implemented organizational and technical measures to secure your information and we regular check our systems to prevent security breaches. We take all reasonable precautions to protect all Personal Information from any loss or unauthorized use, access, or disclosure.
Your Right to Access your Information
Every effort is made to ensure that Personal Information collected is accurate and up to date. Upon request, you can request access to the details of the Personal Information held by Genius, such as what is collected as well as who may receive it. You may request changes or corrections to your Personal Information if you believe it to be incomplete or inaccurate. We will accommodate these requests if the requested changes comply with the law or any legal requirement, and/or do not impact our ability to provide you with continued service.
You may request restriction or erasure of your Personal Information if you feel the processing is inaccurate, unlawful, unnecessary or where you have objected to the processing. We may not be able to delete your Personal Information without also deleting your user account. We may reject your request if such request would interfere with our legitimate interest in processing your Personal Information.
You may also withdraw your consent to processing for marketing purposes.
