ACCESS FROM OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES

If you are accessing or using the Site or services from outside the United States, please be aware that collected information may be transferred to, stored in, and processed in the United States (where our and our service providers’ servers and databases are located and operated). The data protection and related laws and regulations of the United States might not be as comprehensive as those in the country from which you are accessing the Site or services.

 

LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING PERSONAL INFORMATION (EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA VISITORS ONLY)

If you are a visitor from the European Economic Area, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described in this Policy will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

 

However, we will normally collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to process the personal information collected from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person. If this is the case, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).

 

If we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), this interest will normally be to conduct our business and communicate with you as necessary to provide our services to you and for our other legitimate interests, for instance, responding to your queries, improving our services or for the purpose of detecting or preventing illegal activities.

 

If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your Personal Information, or object to the use of your Personal Information on these grounds, please contact us at the address provided under the “CONTACT INFORMATION” heading below. 

 

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

We do not share the personal information of our customers (as defined by California Civil Code §1798.83) with other people or non-affiliated businesses for their direct marketing purposes. 

 

Under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, California residents have the right to request:

  • the deletion of the personal information we have about them
  • to know additional information about whether and how we have collected, used, disclosed, and sold personal information about them
  • to know specific pieces of personal information we have about them
  • that we opt them out of the “sale” of their personal information. 

California residents also have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment if they exercise the rights list above.

 

REQUESTS FOR DELETION AND TO KNOW ABOUT INFORMATION COLLECTED

 

If you make a request for deletion of personal information or a request to know about personal information we have collected, we may require that you provide information and follow procedures so that we can verify the request and your jurisdiction before responding to it. The verification steps we take may differ depending on the request you make. We will match the information that you provide in your request to information we already have on file to verify your identity. If we are able to verify your request, we will process it. If we cannot verify your request, we may ask you for additional information to help us verify your request.

 

California residents will be required to submit their first and last name and email address and may also be asked to provide their telephone number or address so that we can verify the request. Please provide as much of the requested information as possible to help us verify the request. We will only use the information received in a request for the purposes of responding to the request.

 

California law permits California residents to use an authorized agent to make privacy rights requests. We require the authorized agent to provide proof of the California resident’s written permission (for example, a power of attorney) that shows the authorized agent has the authority to submit a request for the California resident. An authorized agent must follow the process described below to make a request. We will additionally require the authorized agent to verify his/her own identity.

 

You may submit a request to us by contacting us at the address provided under THE “CONTACT INFORMATION” heading below.

You may submit a request to opt out through an authorized agent. If you do so, we will follow the same verification procedures as described above for requests for deletion and requests to know about information collected.

 

CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY

We do not knowingly accept online personal information from children under the age of 16. We do not knowingly allow children under the age of 16 to become registered members of our sites or buy products and services on our sites. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information about children under 16.

 

In the event that we ever decide to expand our intended site audience to include children under the age of 16, those specific web pages will, in accordance with the requirements of applicable law (including the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)), be clearly identified and provide an explicit privacy notice addressed to children under 16. In addition, we will provide an appropriate mechanism to obtain parental approval, allow parents to subsequently make changes to or request removal of their children’s personal information, and provide access to any other information as required by law.

 

INFORMATION CHOICES AND CHANGES

 

Our marketing emails tell you how to “opt-out.” If you opt out, we may still send you non-marketing emails. Non-marketing emails include emails about your accounts and our business dealings with you.

 

You may send requests about personal information to our Contact Information below. You can request to change contact choices, opt-out of our sharing with others, and update your personal information.

 

You can typically remove and reject cookies from our Site with your browser settings. Many browsers are set to accept cookies until you change your settings. If you remove or reject our cookies, it could affect how our Site works for you.
