NOTICE TO EUROPEAN UNION RESIDENTS
If you are a resident of the European Union, these provisions apply to you.
If you are located in the European Union, our processing of your Personal Information is governed by Regulation (EU) 2016/679, General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”).
- Our lawful basis for processing your Personal Information;
- Marketing and sharing your Personal Information;
- International transfers;
- How long will we keep your Personal Information; and
- Your rights as a data subject.
Here are some examples about how we may use the information we collect about you and the lawful basis upon which we rely on to do so:
We may use your Personal Information to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which services and offers may be relevant for you. You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or purchased good or services from us and you have not opted out of receiving that marketing. We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your Personal Information with any third party for marketing purposes.
We are a US company, and therefore our service and most of our service providers may be based outside of the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). Your Personal Information will likely be transferred outside of the EEA. We make this transfer: to perform our contract with you, deliver our Site to you or provide you with any services thereunder; or where you have explicitly consented to the proposed transfer.
By submitting your Personal Information, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. If you would like more information about how the mechanism via which your Personal Information is transferred, please contact us at email@example.com.
We will hold your Personal Information on our systems only for as long as required to provide you with the services you have requested, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your Personal Information for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you. In some circumstances, you can ask us to delete your Personal Information: see below for more information.
As a data subject you have a number of rights in relation to your personal data. Below, we have described the various rights that you have, as well as how you can exercise them.
Your Right of Access: You may, at any time, request access your Personal Information that we hold (you may have heard of this right being described as a "subject access request"). Please note that this right entitles you to receive a copy of the Personal Information that we hold about you in order to enable you to check that it is correct and to ensure that we are processing that Personal Information lawfully. It is not a right that allows you to request Personal Information about other people, or a right to request specific documents from us that do not relate to your Personal Information. You can exercise this right at any time by writing to us by contacting us and telling us that you are making a subject access request. You do not have to fill in a specific form to make this kind of request.
Your Right to Rectification and Erasure: You may, at any time, request that we correct Personal Information that we hold about you which you believe is incorrect or inaccurate. You may also ask us to erase Personal Information if you do not believe that we need to continue retaining it (you may have heard of this right described as the “right to be forgotten”). Please note that we may ask you to verify any new data that you provide to us and may take our own steps to check that the new data you have supplied us with is right. Further, we are not always obliged to erase Personal Information when asked to do so; if for any reason we believe that we have a good legal reason to continue processing Personal Information that you ask us to erase we will tell you what that reason is at the time we respond to your request. You can exercise this right at any time by contacting us and telling us that you are making a request to have your Personal Information rectified or erased and on what basis you are making that request. If you want us to replace inaccurate data with new data, you should tell us what that new data is. You do not have to fill in a specific form to make this kind of request.
Your Right to Restrict Processing: Where we process your Personal Information on the basis of a legitimate interest (see the table above which explains how and why we use your information) you are entitled to ask us to stop processing it in that way if you feel that our continuing to do so impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms or if you feel that those legitimate interests are not valid. You may also ask us to stop processing your Personal Information (a) if you dispute the accuracy of that Personal Information and want us verify that data's accuracy; (b) where it has been established that our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where we no longer need to process your Personal Information (and would otherwise dispose of it) but you wish for us to continue storing it in order to enable you to establish, exercise or defend legal claims. Please note that if for any reason we believe that we have a good legal reason to continue processing Personal Information that you ask us to stop processing, we will tell you what that reason is, either at the time we first respond to your request or after we have had the opportunity to consider and investigate it. You can exercise this right at any time by writing to us using the contact details set out here and telling us that you are making a request to have us stop processing the relevant aspect of your personal data and describing which of the above conditions you believe is relevant to that request. You do not have to fill in a specific form to make this kind of request.
Your Right to Portability: Where you wish to transfer certain Personal Information that we hold about you, which is processed by automated means, to a third party you may write to us and ask us to provide it to you in a commonly used machine-readable format. If you wish to transfer your data from us to a third party we are happy to consider such requests.
Your Right to object to processing: You may object to processing of your Personal Information where we rely on legitimate interest for processing that Personal Information. We will comply with your request unless we have a compelling overriding legitimate interest for processing or we need to continue processing your personal data to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim.
Your Right to stop receiving communications: Where we send you e-mail marketing communications (or other regulated electronic messages) you have the right to opt-out at any time. You can do this by using the ‘unsubscribe’ link that appears in the footer of each communication (or the equivalent mechanism in those communications). Alternatively, if for any reason you cannot use those links, or if you would prefer to contact us directly – you can unsubscribe by contacting us and telling us which communications you would like us to stop sending you.
Your Right to object to automated decision making and profiling: You have the right to be informed about the existence of any automated decision making and profiling of your Personal Information, and where appropriate, be provided with meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing that affects you.
Your right to lodge a complaint with your supervisory authority: You may also lodge a complaint to the supervisory authority about the way we process your Personal Information. We would however, appreciate the chance to address your concerns before you approach the supervisory authority, so please contact us in the first instance.
