Right to access, correct and delete data and to object to data processing
Our customers have the right to access, correct and delete their personal data and object to the processing of such data by submitting a written request, at any time. The 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, the Company does not control each and every risk related to the use of the Internet, and it therefore warns the Site’s users of the potential risks associated with the functioning and use of the Internet. The Site may include links to other websites or other Internet sources. As the Company cannot control these websites and external sources, the Company cannot be held responsible for the provision or display of these websites and external sources and may 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 regarding 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 website by email, SMS, the post, or telephone. If you receive promotional email or SMS messages from us and would like to opt out, you can do so by following the instructions in that message. You can also make choices concerning the receipt of promotional email, telephone calls, and postal mail by visiting and signing into Company Promotional Communications Manager, which allows you to update your contact information, manage your contact preferences, opt out of email subscriptions, and choose whether you would like 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 organization collects data to operate effectively and provide you with the best possible experience as you use our services. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you create a personal account. We get some of it by recording how you interact with our services; we can do so, for example, by using technologies such as cookies and by receiving error reports or usage data from software running on your device. We also obtain data from third parties (including other companies). For example, we supplement the data we collect by purchasing demographic data from other companies. We also use other companies’ services to help us determine a location based on your IP address in order to customize certain services accordingly. The data we collect depends on the services and features you use.
How we use your information
Our website uses the data we collect for three basic purposes: to operate our business and provide (including improving and personalizing) the services we offer, to send communications, including promotional communications, and to display advertising. In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect through the various website services you use to guarantee a more seamless, consistent and personalized experience. However, to enhance your privacy, we have incorporated technological and procedural safeguards designed to prevent certain data combinations. For example, we store data we collect from you when you are unauthenticated (not signed in) separately from any account information that directly identifies you, such as your name, email address or phone number.
Sharing your information
We 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 share your content with third parties when you tell us to do so. When you provide payment data to make a purchase, we will share that data with banks and other entities that process payment transactions or provide other financial services, and also for fraud prevention and credit risk reduction purposes. In addition, we share personal data with our controlled affiliates and subsidiaries. We also share personal data with vendors and agents working on our behalf for the purposes described in this statement. For example, companies we have hired to provide customer service support or assist in protecting and securing our systems and services may need to access personal data in order to carry out those functions. In such cases, these companies must abide by our data privacy and security requirements and are not allowed to use any personal data they receive from us for any other purpose. We may also disclose personal data as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets.
