6. Retention and deletion of Personal Data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
We take steps to regularly destroy Personal Data, however we may:

Personal Data retained for this purpose will be archived and stored in a secure manner and will not be accessed unless required for any of these reasons; and
(b) retain Personal Data in an aggregated, de-identified or otherwise anonymous form, such that there is no reliable way of identifying you from the information.
7. Disclosure of Personal Data
We will not sell Personal Data to anyone.
APT Therapeutic Solutions may at its discretion use other third parties to provide essential services on our website or for our services. We may share your details as necessary for the third party to provide that service.
We limit the information we provide to third parties to the information they need to help us provide or facilitate the provision of goods and services and associated purposes. We deal with third parties that are required to meet the privacy standards required by law in handling your Personal Data and use your Personal Data only for the purposes that we give it to them.
8. Disclosure of Personal Data
Personal Data stored in our system is protected by electronic and procedural safeguards. We take reasonable precautions to protect Personal Data (and other content) from accidental loss and theft by storing it in secure data centres. Communication between Users and our servers is encrypted via industry-standard secure sockets layer (SSL).
In relation to website security, the Website is protected with an SSL Certificate. An SSL Certificate serves as a digital “passport” that allows data to be transmitted over secure networks — protecting financial and credit card transactions, signups, web access to mail, sensitive information and intranets. It authenticates and encrypts the data transferred through the Website to the server.
We take all reasonable steps to protect Personal Data, including through internal and external security, restricting access to Personal Data to those who have a need to know, maintaining technological products to prevent unauthorised computer access and regularly reviewing our technology to maintain security. We choose technology partners based on their security and privacy policies and practices.
Given internet transmissions cannot be guaranteed to be entirely secure, you acknowledge and agree that you use the Service at your own risk.
In case of a Security incident or any other breach of security safeguards, such as unauthorised disclosure of Personal Data under APT Therapeutic Solutions control, we will respond in accordance with applicable Data Protection Laws.

(c) restrict or object to the processing of any or all of your Personal Data; and
(d) withdraw any consent to processing that you have previously given in respect of any or all of your Personal Data.
Please note that where we are not, or are no longer, in a position to identify you within the information we hold (including because of any de-identification techniques we may have employed), then your rights as described above shall not apply.
We will respond to any request made in respect of the above in accordance with the applicable Data Protection Laws.
