Personal data we collect might include your name, e-mail address, title, occupation, company or university affiliation, industry, region/country, reason for contacting RASC, topics you are interested in, any other background information provided with an application and any other information contained in messages you send us.
RASC will use your personal data to fulfil your request, provide you with the information you requested and/or send you marketing communications. If you have applied for a job at RASC, your data will be processed for the purposes of evaluating and processing your application and candidacy for the position to which you have applied.

RASC may collect personal data and may disclose such information to third party service providers in aggregate for marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these situations, we do not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to personally identify you.
You do not have to provide us with any personal data. However, if you do not, we may be unable to handle your request or to provide you with the services you are requesting.
RASC will keep your personal data for as long as needed to handle your request or for as long as we have a relationship with you. If you have applied for a role with RASC, RASC will keep your personal data associated with your application for a period of up to five years.
Please note that RASC is not responsible for any information you may disclose publicly in any chat rooms, message boards, or similar web pages, including those hosted on or linked to our Sites.

In addition, certain message boards and similar user forums may display IP addresses along with the message poster’s name and message. RASC bears no responsibility for any action or policies of any third parties who collect any information users may disclose on the message boards, chat areas or other user forums, if any, on the Sites.
Who we share your personal data with
We may share your personal data with other companies of the RASC group as well as with other third parties that might be located in a different country than your country of residence. RASC will not share or sell your data to any third party for their own use.
We may share your personal data with others, such as:
• carefully selected third party service providers, such as marketing service providers (if you have subscribed to our marketing communications), IT systems providers, recruitment service providers, background check providers, data cleansing providers or event organizers, so they can provide services to RASC;
• our advisors; and
• law enforcement authorities or other government bodies when we are required to do so.

Where that is the case, RASC ensures that your personal data is protected by using appropriate legal mechanisms. If you reside in the European Union, such mechanisms include using contracts or wording approved by the European Commission (called “Standard Contractual Clauses” ).
