Depending on your jurisdiction, you may have certain rights with regard to your personal information.
For example, you may have the right to request that your personal information be provided to you in a portable manner. Portability means the personal information will be stored in a manner that allows you to obtain and reuse your personal information for your own purpose by transferring it to a different environment. Upon your written request, you will be provided with the ability to access your personal information to verify its accuracy, download it in an easily portable format, or request a copy of your personal information being processed.
You further have the right to object in writing to the processing of your personal information. In such case, the personal information will not be processed, unless we demonstrate compelling and legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights, and freedoms, or we require the data to establish, exercise, or defend legal rights. You further have the right to object to the processing of your personal information for the purpose of direct marketing, including profiling. Where personal information is processed for scientific and historical research purposes or statistical purposes, you have the right to object, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest. If you object to the processing of your personal information, you agree to the termination of your access to the Service in the event that we determine, in our sole discretion, that we are unable to provide the Service due to your objection to the processing of your personal information. This objection right is given free of charge, although we may charge a reasonable fee for repetitive, manifestly unfounded, or excessive requests.
Upon termination of the Service for any reason, and upon your written request, your personal information may be erased. When we erase personal information, we do so in a way that prevents that information from being restored or reconstructed. Additionally, you have the right at any time to demand that inaccurate or incomplete personal information be erased or rectified.
You also have the right to obtain the following information:
- confirmation of whether, and where, we are processing your personal information;
- information about the purposes of the processing;
- information about the categories of data being processed;
- information about the categories of recipients with whom the data may be shared;
- information about the period for which the data will be stored (or the criteria used to determine that period);
- where the personal information was not collected from you, information as to the source of the personal information; and
- information about the existence of, and an explanation of the logic involved in, any automated processing that has a significant effect on you.
You may restrict processing of your personal information, meaning the personal information may only be held by us, and may only be used for limited purposes, if the accuracy of the personal information is contested (and only for as long as it takes to verify accuracy), the processing is unlawful and you request restriction (as opposed to exercising the right to erasure), we no longer need the personal information for its original purpose but the personal information is still required by us to establish, exercise, or defend legal rights; or verification of overriding grounds is pending in the context of an erasure request.
You may opt out of receiving marketing emails from us by following the instructions in those emails or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the above rights, you may have additional rights under the laws of various US and international jurisdictions. These rights may include:
- the right to opt out of the sale or sharing of your information;
- the right to opt out of targeted advertising;
- the right to limit our use of certain automated decision-making processes.
To exercise any of the rights listed above, please contact us via email at email@example.com. Upon your request for any of the above-referenced information, we will, within one month of receiving your written request, provide such requested information. In the event we fail to meet this deadline, you may complain to the governing Data Protection Authority and may seek a judicial remedy, depending on the jurisdiction. In the event we receive a large number of requests, or complex requests, the time limit may be extended by a maximum of two additional months.
We will not refuse to give effect to your rights unless we cannot identify you through the use of reasonable efforts to verify your identity. Where we have reasonable doubts as to your identity, we may request the provision of additional information to confirm your identity.
Additionally, you may authorize an agent to make a request on your behalf. To designate an agent, please provide a written and signed document by both you and the agent that authorizes the agent to act on your behalf. You may also use a power of attorney. We will still require you to provide information to allow us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected personal information.
If you are a resident of California, please review our California Privacy Notice for additional rights that may apply to you.
