Right to access, correct and delete data and to object to data processing
Our customers have the right to access, correct and delete personal data relating to them, and to object to the processing of such data, by addressing a written request to us at any time. Our company makes every effort to put in place suitable precautions to safeguard the security and privacy of personal data, and to prevent it from being altered, corrupted, destroyed or accessed by unauthorized third parties. However, our company does not control each and every risk related to the use of the Internet, and therefore warns the Site users of the potential risks involved in the functioning and use of the Internet. The Site may include links to other web sites or other internet sources. As our company cannot control these websites and external sources, our company cannot be held responsible for the provision or display of these websites and external sources, and will not be held liable for the content, advertising, products, services or any other material available on or from these websites or external sources.
Management of personal data
You can view or edit your personal data online for many of our services. You can also make choices about our collection and use of your data. How you can access or control your personal data will depend on which services you use. You can choose whether you wish to receive promotional communications from our web site by email, SMS, physical mail, and telephone. If you receive promotional email or SMS messages from us and would like to opt out, you can do so by contacting us. You can also make choices about the receipt of promotional email, telephone calls, and postal mail by contacting us, which allows you to update contact information, manage contact preferences, opt out of email subscriptions, and choose whether to share your contact information with our partners. These choices do not apply to mandatory service communications that are part of certain website services.
Information we collect
Our company may collect data to operate effectively and provide you the best experiences with our services. You provide some of this data directly, should you create a personal account. We may obtain some of it by seeing how you interact with our services by, for example, using technologies like cookies, and receiving error reports or usage data from software running on your device. We may also obtain data from third parties (including other companies). For example, we may supplement the data we can collect by purchasing demographic data from other companies. We may also use services from other companies to help us determine a location based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your area. The data we may collect depends on the services and features you are interested in using.
How we use your information
Our website uses any data we may collect for three basic purposes: to operate our business and provide (including improving and personalizing) the services we offer, to send out communications, including promotional communications, and to display advertising. In carrying out these purposes, we may combine data we collect through the various website services you use to give you a more seamless, consistent and personalized experience. However, to enhance privacy, we may have built in technological and procedural safeguards designed to prevent certain data combinations. For example, we may store data we can collect when you’re unauthenticated (not signed in) separately from any account information that can identify you, such as your name, email address or phone number.
Sharing your information
We only share your personal data with your consent or as necessary to complete any transaction or provide any service you have requested or authorized. For example, we only share your content with third parties when you tell us to do so. If you provide payment data to make a purchase, we will share payment data with banks and other entities that process payment transactions or provide other financial services, and for fraud prevention and credit risk reduction. In addition, we share personal data among our controlled affiliates and subsidiaries. We also share personal data with vendors or agents working on our behalf for the purposes described in this statement. For example, companies we’ve hired to provide customer service support or assist in protecting and securing our systems and services may need access to personal data in order to provide those functions. In such cases, these companies must abide by our data privacy and security requirements and are not allowed to use personal data they receive from us for any other purpose. We may also disclose data as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets.
What are cookies?
To make a website work properly, most big websites sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
How to control cookies?
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work. In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. Please be aware that if you do not configure your browser you will accept cookies provided by any website.
