Privacy notice - Single Sign On (SSO)
Who are we?
We are Canonical Group Limited. Our address is 2nd Floor, Clarendon House, Victoria Street, Douglas IM1 2LN, Isle of Man. You can contact us by post at the above address or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org for the attention of "Legal".
We are not required to have a data protection officer, so any enquiries about our use of your personal data should be addressed to the contact details above.
What personal data do we collect?
When you register an SSO and/or Ubuntu One account, we ask you for your name and your email address and related information.
Why do we collect this information?
Your information will be used by us for the provision of services in the creation of an SSO and/or Ubuntu One account. The SSO and/or Ubuntu One account is used to verify your identity and enable access to certain Canonical and third party services.
What do we do with your information?
Your information is stored in our database and may be processed outside of the European Economic Area. It is shared with the third parties only as reasonably required for Canonical to process and store your data in accordance with this notice.
Such countries do not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA. Where the European Commission has not given a formal decision that such countries provide an adequate level of data protection similar to those which currently apply to the United Kingdom and EEA, any transfer of your personal information will be subject to approved contract terms designed to help safeguard your privacy rights and give you remedies in the unlikely event of misuse of you personal information. If you would like further information, please contact us (see "Your right to complain" below).
How long do we keep your information for?
We keep your information for as long as you retain an SSO and/or Ubuntu One account and thereafter for so long as reasonably required in accordance with our record retention policy.

- Require the erasure of personal information concerning you in certain situations.
- Receive the personal information concerning you which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit that data to a third party in certain situations.
