Security and retention of your information
Simpel maintains physical, organizational, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect your information from loss, misuse and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration and destruction within our organisation, including security controls to prevent unauthorized access to our systems. While we take reasonable steps to secure your information from loss, misuse, interference and unauthorized access, modification and disclosure, you should be aware no security procedures or protocols are ever guaranteed to be 100 percent secure from intrusion or hacking, and there is therefore always some risk assumed by sharing your information online. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your account has been compromised), please immediately notify us using the contact details below.
How long does Simpel keep your information?
Simpel retains information according to what the information was collected for. In some cases, there are legal requirements to keep information for a minimum period. Simpel will keep your information for so long as necessary for the purpose for which it was collected or for such other purposes for which consent has been obtained, or for the time Simpel is otherwise permitted to or authorised by law to store your information.

You can request access to or correction of the information we hold about you by making a request to Simpel. We will provide you with access or correct the information unless we are legally authorised not to do so.

We will take all reasonable steps to access and/or update your information in response to such requests. If there is a reason that we cannot make that change, we will inform you of that reason. We may seek to recover reasonable costs associated with providing you with access to or correction of your personal information. Simpel may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting such access or change.
