Different retention periods apply for different types of Personal Data and in determining the appropriate retention period, we consider several criteria, including, but not limited to, the purpose for which we hold your Personal Data, our legal, accounting, reporting, and/or regulatory obligations in relation to that Personal Data (e.g., financial or tax reporting obligations), whether our relationship with you is ongoing (e.g., where you use more than one of our products and/or services), any specific request you may have made in relation to the deletion of your Personal Data, or where we have a legitimate interest in relation to the management of our own rights (e.g., the defense of any claims). In some circumstances, we may anonymize your Personal Data so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you.
Once you no longer have a relationship with us, we will retain or securely delete or destroy your Personal Data subject to the foregoing and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. If you request to receive no further contact from us, we will keep some basic information about you on our suppression list in order to avoid sending you unwanted materials in the future.
We respect your privacy rights and provide you with reasonable access and rights to the Personal Data that you may have provided through your use of the Services, in accordance with applicable law.
A. Data Subject Rights
Depending on applicable law, you may have the following rights with respect to your Personal Data:
Right to withdraw consent at any time: You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your Personal Data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
Right to opt out of sale/targeted advertising: You have the right to opt-out of the sales of your Personal Data or the processing of your Personal Data for purposes of targeted advertising.
If you would like to exercise any of the data subject access rights in the above (each, an `Access Request``), please send an email to email@example.com with your specific request and identify the specific website to which your request relates. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
Once we receive your request, we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
If we are not clear as to what you are requesting, we may also need to contact you for clarification so we can more fully respond to your request.
If we cannot locate any records about you, we may also ask you for additional information to assist us in locating records, if they exist.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within the timeframes required under applicable law. Occasionally it may take us longer than the time period required under applicable law if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you as to the reason for the delay.
B. Deleting Your Account
In some regions (like the European Economic Area), you have certain rights under applicable data protection laws. These may include the right to:
(1) request access and obtain a copy of your personal information;
(2) request rectification or erasure;
(3) restrict the processing of your personal information;
and (4) if applicable, the right to data portability.
In certain circumstances, you may also have the right to object to the processing of your personal information. To make such a request, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will consider and act upon any request in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
If we are relying on your consent to process your personal information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Please note, however, that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before its withdrawal, nor will it affect the processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent. If you have questions or comments about your privacy rights, you may email us at email@example.com.
If you are a California resident, you are granted specific rights regarding access to your personal information. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

To ensure you receive proper notifications, we will need to collect certain information about your device such as operating system and user identification information.
We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process. However, despite our safeguards and efforts to secure your information, no electronic transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat our security and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your information. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, transmission of personal information to and from our Services is at your own risk. You should only access the Services within a secure environment.
We may use vendors to deliver the Services, and in some cases, they may have access to your personal information and retain copies of it for their records. We can make no guarantees that such vendor sites won`t be subject to hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorized third parties. If you believe that your access credentials or Personal Data have been compromised, please contact us immediately.
