GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION
On May 25, 2018, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becomes officially operative. We maintain our commitment to protect the privacy of its users and abide by the legislation of all regions we operate. We are willing to deliver the best experience to our end-users.
Taking into account of the above, personal data (if any) of our users is processed under the “purposes of legitimate interests” as outlined in GDPR Article 6(1)(f). Such an approach also helps us to fight against fraud and reimburse our contractors and agents.
General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679, is a European Union law governing privacy and data protection for all residents of the EU. The provisions of GDPR can be also applied to how data is processed and verified (more on that later) outside the European Union.
GDPR is a new set of rules intended to empower the citizens of the European Union to control their personal information. In accordance with the applicable laws, users are authorized to access and modify their own data held by the companies, which includes data collection, ad tracking, surveys, cookies, location data, and every other bit of a user’s “digital footprint”. Users are also entitled to transmit their personal details to other organizations. The GDPR also enforces companies to determine their in-house data security policies.
We will comply with all the GDPR requirements worldwide for all our users by the 25th of May 2018. We will (i) streamline the data handling controls, (ii) specify our relationships with data partners, and (iii) provide the data subjects with an understanding and direct management of the way their personal information is used.
We cooperate with our partners to determine the way data is handled under the agreed terms.
We have assigned a Data Protection Officer (DPO). You may reach him via email@example.com
We will retain the gathered data for no longer as 24 months.
The retention policy of company’s data
Company processes and for about 24 months stores the pseudonymized data, let alone special requirement provided by GDPR (fraud, legal claim, etc.). Other than that, all personal data is deleted once the 24-month period is over.
Requests and removal of the data
You (data subject) may send official requests to us via email at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
At any time, you have the right:
- To access your personal information that we hold;
- To request the rectification of your personal information that we hold;
- To request the erasure of your personal information that we hold;
- To request to restrict processing of your personal information;
- To object to processing of your personal information by us;
- To request to transfer your personal information that we hold (e.g. data portability);
- To file a complaint to a supervisory authority in your jurisdiction; and
- To withdraw any consent related to your personal information given by you.
Your request will be observed within a 30-day period from the initial request receipt.
We will also notify you and a relevant supervisory authority within 72 hours from a breach in a case of such breach related to your personal information that we hold.
SECURITY OF INFORMATION
Security of your information is our utmost priority. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect against the unauthorized access to, retention of, and disclosure of data. This includes undertaking necessary physical, electronic, and management activities required to protect data integrity, access, and use. Any data that are stored on our servers is treated as confidential information. Please keep in mind, however, that despite these reasonable efforts to protect data on our servers, no method of transmission over the Internet is guaranteed to be secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your data at all times, we cannot guarantee its absolute security and shall not be liable for any breach of security by an outside party. Only authorized employees have access to the information you provide us.
We are sensitive to the issue of children’s privacy. Therefore, the Website and our services are neither developed for, nor directed at, children. If you believe your child has provided us with personally identifiable data, and you would like to have the data removed, please contact us.
A link from the Website to another website does not imply our endorsement of that site. We do not control the websites to which we link and assume no responsibility for their content or privacy policies. Therefore, you should carefully review the privacy policies that apply to any sites you access from our site.
TRANSFER OF DATA UPON CHANGE OF CONTROL
In the event that another company acquires all or substantially all of the assets of our business through a consolidation, merger and asset purchase, or other transaction, we reserve the right to transfer all data (including any PII a user may have provided to us) that is in our possession or under our control to such acquiring party.
