Notice Regarding “Do Not Track” Signals

“Do Not Track” Signals. Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a so called “Do Not Track” signal to websites and online services you visit.

In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data in some circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process the data to meet a contractual or other legal requirement). Where we have asked for your consent, you may withdraw consent at any time. If you ask to withdraw your consent to Sony processing your data, this will not affect any processing which has already taken place at that time.

These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law or have compelling legitimate interests to keep. If you have unresolved concerns, you have the right to complain to a data protection authority.

Australia Privacy Rights Notice

In relation to Section “International transfers of your data” above, we will disclose your personal data to parties in a number of countries, including the United States of America, Japan, and the United Kingdom. From time to time we will need to disclose your personal data to parties in other countries not on this list. This will be on an ad hoc or case by case basis and for the purposes for which we collected your personal data.
