We process “personal data,” as that term is defined in the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).

Legal bases of processing: We may process any of the personal data we collect for the purposes described in “how we use information” (1) with your consent, which you may withdraw at any time; (2) as necessary to perform our agreement with you to provide Services; and (3) as necessary for our legitimate interests, so long as those interests do not override your fundamental rights and freedoms related to data privacy.

Your rights under the GDPR: Users that reside in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), U.K., or Switzerland have the right to lodge a complaint about our data collection and processing actions with the supervisory authority concerned. Contact details for data protection authorities are available here: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/bodies/authorities/index_en.htm.

If you are a resident of the EEA, U.K., or Switzerland, you have the following rights.

  • Access and Portability: Obtain access to personal data we hold about you or request transmission of your data to a third party.
  • Correction: Request that we rectify inaccurate or incomplete personal data we store about you.
  • Erasure: Request that we erase personal data when such data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, when you withdraw consent and no other legal basis for processing exists, or when you believe that your fundamental rights to data privacy and protection outweigh our legitimate interest in continuing the processing.
  • Restriction of processing: Request that we restrict our processing of personal data if there is a dispute about the accuracy of the data, if the processing is unlawful, if the processing is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected but is needed by you for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, or if your request to object to processing is pending evaluation.
  • Objection to processing: Object to processing of your personal data based on our legitimate interests or for direct marketing (including profiling).

California

Your California Privacy Rights; “Shine the Light” Law

California residents are entitled once a year, free of charge, to request and obtain certain information regarding our disclosure, if any, of certain categories of personal information to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. Please contact us to obtain this information. We do not share your personal information with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes.

California Consumer Privacy Act

The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides California residents with rights to receive certain disclosures regarding the collection, use, and sharing of information about them, as well as rights to know/access, delete, and limit sharing of personal information. You have the right to be free from discrimination based on your exercise of your CCPA rights. To the extent that we collect personal information that is subject to the CCPA, that information, our practices, and your rights are described below.

Notice at Collection Regarding the Categories of Personal Information Collected

You have the right to receive notice of the categories of personal information we collect and the purposes for which we use personal information. The following table summarizes the categories of personal information we collect, the categories of sources of that information, and whether we disclose or sell that information to service providers or third parties, respectively. The categories we use to describe personal information are those enumerated in the CCPA. We collect this personal information for the purposes described in “how we use information.”

You Service Providers Not sold

Entities to whom we disclose information for business purposes are service providers, which are companies that we engage to conduct activities on our behalf. We restrict service providers from using personal information for any purpose that is not related to our engagement.

Entities to whom we “sell” information are third parties. Under the CCPA, a business “sells” personal information when it discloses personal information to a company for monetary or other benefit. A company may be considered a third party either because the purpose for its sharing of personal information is not for an enumerated business purpose under California law, or because its contract does not restrict it from using personal information for other purposes.

Your rights under the CCPA

  • Opt out of sale of personal information: You have the right to opt out of our sale of your personal information to third parties. To exercise this right, please click here or contact us. Please be aware that your right to opt out does not apply to our sharing of personal information with service providers.
  • Know and request access to and deletion of personal information: You have the right to request access to personal information collected about you and information regarding the source of that personal information, the purposes for which we collect it, and the third parties and service providers with whom we share it. You also have the right to request in certain circumstances that we delete personal information that we have collected directly from you. Please contact us to exercise these rights.

Nevada

Residents of the State of Nevada have the right to opt out of the sale of certain pieces of their information to other companies who will sell or license their information to others. Currently, we do not engage in such sales. If you are a Nevada resident and would like more information about our data sharing practices, please contact us.
