European Union Data Privacy Rights
If you are located in the European Union (“EU”), the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) grants you certain rights under the law. In particular, the right to access, correct, or delete the personal information we hold about you. We may retain your personal information from the time you first engage with our Website or apps until you request deletion of such personal information.
Upon request, we will grant you reasonable access to personal information that we hold about you. In addition, we will take reasonable steps to permit you to correct, amend, or delete personal information we hold about you. We also rely upon your assistance in providing accurate updates of your personal information. In order to access, correct, amend, or delete your personal information we hold about you, please contact email@example.com.
If you have a comment, question, or complaint about how we are handling your personal information, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to allow us to resolve the matter. In addition, if you are located in the EU, you may submit a complaint regarding the processing of your personal information to the EU data protection authorities (each a “DPA”). The following link may assist you in finding the appropriate DPA: https://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/bodies/authorities/index_en.htm.
International Data Transfer
If you are located outside the United States, in particular if you are located in Switzerland and the EU, please note that we and our servers are located in the United States. Any information that you provide to us may be transferred to and processed in the United States or other countries around the world where we do business. This transfer may include recipients of information located in countries where there may be a lower level of legal protection for your personal information than in your country. By using our Website or apps, you unambiguously consent to your information being collected, processed, used, and transferred as disclosed herein.
Legal Basis for Processing under GDPR
Where personal information is processed based on consent, EU residents have the right to withdraw such consent at any time. To do so, please contact email@example.com. If there is a different legal basis that would permit us to continue processing your personal information after withdrawing consent, we will notify you of that legal basis at the time of your request.
Your California Privacy Rights
California law requires certain businesses to respond to requests from California residents asking about the disclosure of personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes. In the alternative, such businesses may adopt a policy of not disclosing personal information to third parties for marketing purposes if a California resident has opted-out of such information-sharing. We do not share your personal information with third parties without consent. We also have an opt-out policy in place. If you wish to opt-out of our sharing your personal information for marketing purposes after you have consented, please follow the “Opt-Out” instructions above.
We have implemented administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to help prevent unauthorized access, use, or disclosure of personal information in our custody or control. However, we cannot guarantee that these safeguards will prevent the unauthorized access, use or disclosure of your personal information.
