We believe that we have appropriate policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control (having regard to the type and amount of that personal data) from unauthorized access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorized modification, unlawful destruction or accidental loss.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. We also have procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.
We will only retain your personal information for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your information, the purposes for which we process it and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

10. YOUR RIGHTS IN RELATION TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Under certain circumstances, as prescribed in the applicable laws (EEA, UK, Canada, USA State laws), you have the right to:
- Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it;
- Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected;
- Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it;
- Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground;
- Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example, if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it;
- Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
If you wish to exercise your rights in relation to the processing of your information by any of our Partners, you should contact us via e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
11. YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
This section applies only to California residents. Pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), if you are a California resident, you have the right to: (1) request a copy of the specific personal information we have collected about you within the previous twelve months, including personal information we have shared with another company for a business purpose, (2) request that we delete your personal information, and/or (3) request that we stop selling your personal information.
Such requests may be made up to two times in a rolling twelve-month period. When you make such a request, the personal information provided may be limited to personal information we have collected about you in the previous twelve months. With respect to deletion requests, note that, if you choose to delete your personal information, then you may not be able to use certain functions of our Site that require personal information to operate.
With respect to selling requests, please note that we have not sold personal information for monetary consideration in the preceding twelve months, and we do not plan to do so in the future unless you give us your consent or instruct us to do so. However, under some circumstances, a transfer of personal information to a third party without monetary consideration may be considered a “sale” under CCPA. For purposes of CCPA, all categories of personal information, except for background and criminal information, biometric information, and government identifiers, may be transferred internally or to third parties. Such transfers under certain circumstances, may be considered a sale. We will not discriminate against you for choosing to exercise your right to opt out of having your personal information sold as defined under CCPA.
If you are a California resident, you also have the right to ask us one time each year if we have shared personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. We share personal information with third parties for the direct marketing of our products only if we have your affirmative consent (opt in).
California residents may make such requests by sending us an email at email@example.com.
We reserve the right to update this Policy at any time, and we will provide you with a new Policy when we make updates. We may also notify you in other ways from time to time about the processing of your personal information.
