For example, we will store your personal information for as long as we have an existing relationship with you and otherwise as required or permitted by applicable law. Generally this means your personal information will be retained until the end of your relationship with us and as long we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so thereafter.  For example, personal information will be kept for marketing purposes unless and/or until you opt-out from receiving marketing communications. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

If you register for our services and create an account, we will store your information for as long as needed to maintain your account, provide the services you requested, enforce any applicable terms that govern your use of the services, maintain appropriate records to reflect our delivery of services to you and for other reasons described above.  We periodically review the personal information we retain to determine whether continued storage is proper.

Once you have used these links to leave the Site or our mobile application, any information you provide to these third parties is not covered by this Privacy Policy, and we cannot guarantee the safety and privacy of your information. Before visiting and providing any information to any third-party websites, you should inform yourself of the privacy policies and practices (if any) of the third party responsible for that website, and should take those steps necessary to, in your discretion, protect the privacy of your information.

CONTROLS FOR DO-NOT-TRACK FEATURES

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and our mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this Privacy Policy.

OPTIONS REGARDING YOUR INFORMATION

We provide you with choices about whether to provide us with personal information and whether it is shared. For example, we may seek your prior consent for certain processing. We are required to seek your consent before we use your personal information for any purpose incompatible with the purposes identified in this policy.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about categories of personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared personal information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to us using the contact information provided below.

If you are under 18 years of age, reside in California, and have a registered account with the Site or our mobile application, you have the right to request removal of unwanted data that you publicly post on the Site or our mobile application. To request removal of such data, please contact us using the contact information provided below, and include the email address associated with your account and a statement that you reside in California. We will make sure the data is not publicly displayed on the Site or our mobile application, but please be aware that the data may not be completely or comprehensively removed from our systems.

TRANSFERS OF INFORMATION

As part of our international operations, we may transfer information about you to any jurisdiction where we do business.  When you use our applications or services, you acknowledge that we may transfer information about you as described in this policy.

While we do not currently intend to do so, we may transfer your personal information for any of the purposes identified in this policy to our subsidiaries, affiliates, service providers, and business partners that may be located outside of the jurisdiction where you are located (if any).  The laws in those jurisdictions may not provide the same level of data protection compared to the laws in your country. However, we will treat your personal information as subject to the protections described in this policy.

When we are deemed to be transferring personal information from the European Union (EU) to entities located outside of the EU, we will rely on a legal framework that provides appropriate safeguards, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) for storing and processing all of the data, which could include the standard contractual clauses, binding corporate rules, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield program, or another framework deemed adequate by the European Commission.  The more detailed information on AWS is available here: https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/security/aws-and-the-general-data-protection-regulation/

ADDITIONAL PRIVACY RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS

This section sets out rights applicable only to personal data of individuals located in the EU, and our obligations regarding their personal information.

If you are located in the EU or entities located in the EU process your personal information hereunder in the EU, then you have the right to restrict or object to our processing of your personal information. The right to restrict processing arises only in limited circumstances, for example, if you think we are processing inaccurate information.  In addition, if we are required to restrict processing but the requirement is temporary, we may not be permanently obligated to adhere to your request. We will, however, let you know when the restriction is lifted. In cases where our basis for processing your information is the satisfaction of our legitimate interests (e.g., fraud prevention), you may object to our processing. However, we will decline your request if our interest in continuing to process your information is sufficiently compelling to legally override your interest in the request, or our processing is necessary to establish, exercise, or defend a legal claim. You also may prevent us from sending direct marketing at any time without limitation.  To request a restriction or to object to processing, please submit your request by sending an email to the address specified in the “Contact Us” section below.

Similarly, if you are located in the EU or entities located in the EU process your personal information hereunder, then we will provide you with the ability to request access to and correction or deletion of your personal information.  You also may request that we provide you with a copy of your personal information, or update it or delete it on your behalf. Your right to request access, correction, or deletion is sometimes limited. For example, we will not provide you with access to information that includes personal information about another person, and we will keep limited personal information notwithstanding a request to delete if necessary for us to establish, exercise, or defend against a legal claim. To request access to, or correction or deletion of your personal information, please submit your request by sending an email to the address specified in the “Contact Us” section below.

Individuals located in the EU or whose personal information is processed by us in the EU also have the right to obtain their personal information so they can transfer it to another party, or ask us to do so on their behalf, which we will do when technically feasible. This right is limited, and only arises when our processing of your information is automated and based on your consent or our user agreements and/or terms and conditions. To exercise this right, please submit your request by sending an email to the address specified in the “Contact Us” section below.

We have not appointed a data protection officer and are not required to do so because: (i) our core activities do not consist of personal data processing which requires regular and systematic monitoring of individuals on a large scale; (ii) our personal data processing activities do not relate to special categories of data on a large scale and data relating to criminal convictions and offences (‘Special categories of data’ is the type of data which reveals racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade-union membership; genetic data, biometric data or data concerning health or sex life and sexual orientation); and (iii) we are not required to do so by the Member State law where this processing relates to.  Individuals located in the EU also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority established in their country. To complain to an applicable data protection authority about our collection and use of your personal information and for more information, please contact your local data protection authority.
