Privacy Policy



This document governs the privacy policy of our website and web application, collectively referred to as our “Website”.
 
Our privacy policy tells you what Personal Data (PD) and Nonpersonal Data (NPD) we may collect from you, how we collect it, how we protect it, how we may share it, how you can access and change it, and how you can limit our sharing of it. Our privacy policy also explains certain legal rights that you have with respect to your Personal Data. Any capitalized terms not defined herein will have the same meaning as where they are defined elsewhere on our website. 
When using our Website and submitting Personal Data (PD) to us, you may have certain rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other laws. Here are some of those rights:  
 
The right to be informed
You have the right to be informed about the personal data we collect from you, and how we process it. 
 
The right of access
You have the right to get confirmation that your personal data is being processed and have the ability to access your personal data.
 
The right to rectification
You have the right to have your personal data corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete.

The right to erasure (right to be forgotten)
You have the right to request the removal or deletion of your personal data if there is no compelling reason for us to continue processing it.

The right to restrict processing
You have a right to ‘block’ or restrict the processing of your personal data. When your personal data is restricted, we are permitted to store your data, but not to process it further.

You have the right to file a complaint with supervisory authorities if your information has not been processed in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation. If the supervisory authorities fail to address your complaint properly, you may have the right to a judicial remedy.
 
Definitions
‘Nonpersonal Data’ (NPD) is information that is in no way personally identifiable. ‘Personal Data’ (PD) means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person. PD is in many ways the same as Personally Identifiable Information (PII). However, PD is broader in scope and covers more data.

Our Security Policy

We have built our Website using industry-standard encryption and authentication tools to protect the security of your PD. We also use other technologies to help protect your PD. If we collect your credit card information through our Website, we will encrypt it before it travels over the Internet using industry-standard technology for conducting secure online transactions. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee against the loss or misuse of your PD or secure data transmission over the Internet because of its nature. We strongly urge you to protect any password you may have for our Website and to not share it with anyone. 
 
Transferring Personal Data from the European Union
Personal data (PD) that we collect from you may be stored, processed, and transferred between any of the countries in which we operate, specifically the United States. The European Union has not found the United States and some other countries to have an adequate level of protection of PD under Article 45 of the GDPR. Our company relies on derogations for specific situations as defined in Article 49 of the GDPR. For European Union customers and users, with your consent, your PD may be transferred outside the European Union to the United States and other countries. We will use your PD to provide the goods, services, and/or information you request from us to perform a contract with you or to satisfy a legitimate interest of our company in a manner that does not outweigh your freedoms and rights. Wherever we transfer, process or store your PD, we will take reasonable steps to protect it. We will use the information we collect from you in accordance with our privacy policy. By using our mobile app, services, or products, you agree to the transfers of your PD described within this section.
 
Also, PD you post on our Website for publication, or other reasons, may be available worldwide by means of the Internet. We cannot prevent the use or misuse of such information by others.
 
Changes to Our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change this privacy policy at any time. If our company decides to change this privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Website so that our users and customers are always aware of what information we collect, use, and disclose. If at any time we decide to disclose or use your PD in a method different from that specified at the time it was collected, we will provide advance notice by email (sent to the email address on file in your account). Otherwise we will use and disclose our users’ and customers’ PD in agreement with the privacy policy in effect when the information was collected. In all cases, your continued use of our Website, services, and products after any change to this privacy policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
