There may be circumstances where our processing of personal data is necessary for artistic purposes in the public interest but that such processing is incompatible with data protection laws (for instance, as part of the exploitation of a production and in publishing lists of cast and crew on our website). In these circumstances there are exemptions that apply to certain data protection requirements and on which we may rely. However, we will always use our best efforts to comply with data protection laws and this notice where possible.
We will usually only keep your information for as long as we need it for the purposes it was collected, and we apply the following retention periods to your information:
We keep the data for this length of time for business reasons because the information is helpful if we receive any enquiries or complaints, and so that we are able to verify your identity when you contact DNEG.
In some cases, information such as contact information and correspondence with notes and complaints will need to be retained for longer periods for regulatory purposes so that DNEG can demonstrate compliance with Data Protection legislation, for example, where we need to evidence that we have responded to and dealt with subject rights requests made by individuals; or to enable us to defend potential legal claims under the statutory periods set out in applicable legislation.
If you wish to make a complaint about how DNEG uses your information, please contact the Data Protection Officer via email and we will do our best to help. If you are still unhappy, you can contact your Data Protection Authority as follows:
