Personal Data Collected
Nobel can collect personal data from our users at several different points on our Site. We collect, retain, and use your personal data for the purpose of administering our relationship with you. For this purpose, it is necessary for you to provide certain personal data upon using portions of our Site.

We will use reasonable efforts to delete the personal data regarding the child from our files.
Accuracy of Personal Data Collected
We continually strive to maintain accurate and complete information about our users, members, customers, and clients.

In such cases, we will cease processing your personal data unless we have compelling legitimate grounds to continue processing or where it is needed for legal reasons.
Right to Revoke Consent
Where you have previously provided your consent, such as to permit us to process data about you, you have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time. You can do this by contacting us at email@example.com.

Rights related to automated decision-making
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you, except where such decision: (i) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between you and NOBEL; (ii) is authorized by the Maltese law; or (iii) is based on your explicit consent.
The processing of your personal data performed in relation to the use of the Site does not involve an automated decision-making process which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you.

Also, in some cases, the transfer of your personal data to countries located outside the European Union / European Economic Area may be necessary for the conclusion and performance of a contract to which you are party or which is concluded in your interest, as it is the case with the transfer of personal data required for the delivery of the products purchased on the Site to Liberia.
