GDPR and Personal Data of Individuals in the European Economic Area
From and after May 25, 2018, the provisions of this section apply to residents of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) when the Service is targeted to them: The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new comprehensive data protection law that updates existing EU laws to strengthen the protection of “Personal Data” (any Personal Information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person) in light of rapid technological developments, the increasingly global nature of business and more complex international flows of personal data.
Accordingly, we have implemented additional transparency with respect to individuals within the EEA. As available and except as limited under applicable law, the rights afforded to individuals are:
- Right of Access - the right to be informed of and request access to the Personal Data we process about you;
- Right to Rectification - the right to request that we amend or update your Personal Data where it is inaccurate or incomplete;
- Right to Erasure - the right to request that we delete your Personal Data;
- Right to Restrict - the right to request that we temporarily or permanently stop processing all or some of your Personal Data;
- Right to Object -
- the right, at any time, to object to us processing your Personal Data on grounds relating to your particular situation;
- the right to object to your Personal Data being processed for direct marketing purposes;
- Right to Data Portability - the right to request a copy of your Personal Data in electronic format; and
- Right not to be subject to Automated Decision Making - the right to not be subject to a decision based solely on automated decision making, including profiling, where the decision would have a legal effect on you or produce a similarly significant effect.
If this section applies to you and would like to receive an electronic copy of your Personal Data for any of these purposes or to exercise any of the specified rights with respect to your Personal Data, you may contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We may need to collect and process the Personal Data in order to provide the Service to you or because we are legally required to do so. If you do not provide the information that we request, we may not be able to provide you with the Service. We may use the Personal Data for our legitimate business interests.
We do not knowingly permit children in the EEA under age 13 to register for any content, product or the Service. We do not knowingly collect, use or disclose personal information about users under age 13, except as permitted by law.
Regarding the section entitled “Data Retention,” above: We keep your Personal Information only for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose(s) for which it was obtained. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include (i) for as long as we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide the Service to you; (ii) as required by a legal obligation to which we are subject; or (iii) as advisable in light of our legal position (such as in regard of applicable statutes of limitations, litigation, or regulatory investigations).
You may lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority competent for your country or region.
