- Consent to Processing.
Our Services are operated in the United States of America. If you are located in the European Union, Canada or elsewhere outside of the United States, please be aware that personal information we collect will be transferred to and processed in the United States. By using the Services, or providing us with any personal information, you fully understand and unambiguously consent to this transfer, processing and storage of your personal information in the United States, a jurisdiction in which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as those in the country where you reside and/or are a citizen.
If you are an individual in the European Economic Area (EEA), we collect and process personal information about you only where we have legal basis for doing so under applicable EU laws. The legal basis depends on the manner in which you use the Services. This means we collect and use your personal information only where:
- we need it to provide you access and use of the Services, including to operate the Services, provide customer support and personalized features, and to protect the safety and security of the Services and its users;
- it satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote the Services and to protect our legal rights and interests;
- you give us consent to do so for a specific purpose; or
- we need to process your personal information to comply with a legal obligation.
If you have consented to our use of personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place. Where we are using your personal information because we or a third party have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use, though, in some cases, this may mean no longer using the Services.
By using the Services you understand that your personal information may be transferred to countries outside of your country of residence, including the United States, which may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your personal information.
We are the controller of information that you provide in order for us to provide the Services for your use. You are the controller of any information that is entered during and as part of your use of the Services and we are the processor of that information on your behalf. We will process the information according to your instructions, which you give us in the process of using the Services.
If you reside in the EEA and we do not seek your explicit consent to process your personal information, we are relying on the legitimate commercial interest of our company in providing the Services to you and other customers and the need to process your personal information, as previously described, in order to accomplish that legitimate interest. Where data processing is occurring based on the basis of your consent, you also have the right to withdraw consent and request that we halt processing at any time. This withdrawal of consent does not invalidate the consent-based processing that occurred prior to withdrawal.
Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect or process 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 collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.
- Security. The security of your personal information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We store and process your personal information using third-party servers located in data centers in the United States. We employ administrative, physical, and technical safeguards designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. Your personal information will be kept on our servers or on those of our service providers and only those employees that require it for the purposes of their duties will have access to your personal information. If we learn of a systems security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Services, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically. We may post a notice on the Site or through the Services if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice of a security breach), please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Control of Your Personal Information and Opt-Out. We will maintain your personal information for as long as needed in order to perform the purposes for which such personal information was collected. You will be able to access, update and/or delete your personal information (including, without limitation, your User Content) via your Account. You may also request at any time to access or update your personal information, or that we delete any of your personal information stored by us, by contacting us as provided in herein below. Following any such request, we will take all reasonable steps to provide, modify and/or delete your personal information as soon as is practicable, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records or as otherwise required by law. Where you have consented to our use of your personal information, you may withdraw that consent at any time and opt-out to further use by contacting as provided in herein below and let us know what use of your personal information you wish to opt-out of.
- Minors. No one under the age of 18 is permitted to access the Paid Subscription Services or provide any personal information. By using the Services, you represent that you are at least 18 years of age. We are concerned about the safety and privacy of children who use the Internet. We encourage the viewing of our Website by children to be done with parental supervision. Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”), we will never knowingly request or collect personal information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information without verifiable parental consent, we will use our best efforts to remove such information from our files. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with personal information without verifiable parental consent, he or she should contact us at the email address provided below.
