B. Our relationship with you
We are the “controller” with respect to your Personal Information because we determine the means and purposes of processing your information when using our Services.
C. Legal bases for processing Personal Information from the EU
We describe how we process your Personal Information in Sections 2 through 4 of this Privacy Statement. We may process your Personal Information if you consent to the processing, to satisfy our legal obligations, if it is necessary to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts we entered with you or to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you, or for our legitimate interests to protect our property, rights or safety of third parties, ourselves, our customers or others.
D. Direct Marketing
We will obtain your consent where required to send you marketing communications using electronic means. You may withdraw your consent at any time within your Account Settings or by emailing [email protected]. We will only contact you by electronic means (email, push notification, SMS, etc.) with information about our Services that are similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale or negotiation of a sale to you. We will only share your Personal Information with third parties for marketing purposes with your explicit consent. If you do not want us to use your Personal Information in this way, please review and update your Account Settings as necessary or contact us at [email protected]. You may raise such objection with regard to initial or further processing for purposes of direct marketing at any time and free of charge. The withdrawal of your consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. Other marketing activities will happen based on the legitimate interests of ourselves or other of our stakeholders. E.g., where we tailor marketing communications or send targeted marketing messages via post, phone or social media and other third-party platforms; and in providing existing customers with information (via email or other channels) about similar products and services.
E. Privacy Rights
You can exercise your privacy rights by following the instructions below or contacting us at [email protected]. We will handle your request under applicable law. When you make a request, we may verify your identity to protect your privacy and security.
1. Right to withdraw consent.
To the extent we or an authorized third-party request and you provide your consent to the processing of your Personal Information, you can withdraw your consent at any time. Your withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of our processing based on consent before your withdrawal.
2. Right of access to and rectification of your Personal Information.
Our site allows you to access and rectify certain Registration Information within your Account Settings, and your Self-Reported Information by going to the surveys page, and other information as required by applicable law. You can download your account and self-reported Information within your Account Settings or by going to the applicable tool in “Tools”. If you would like to access or rectify any other information, contact Customer Care and we will do our best to assist you without undue delay. We may reject part or all of your request if responding to your request could adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
3. Right to erasure (or, “Right to be Forgotten”).
As explained under Section 5.d. (Account Deletion), we allow you to delete your account at any time. You can request erasure of Personal Information that: (a) is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed; (b) was collected in relation to processing to which you previously consented, but later withdrew such consent; or (c) was collected in relation to processing activities to which you object, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for our processing. If we have made your Personal Information public and we are required to erase such Personal Information, we will take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers that are processing any links to or copies or replications of your Personal Information of your erasure request. Our assistance with your request for erasure is subject to limitations by relevant data protection laws, available technology, and the cost of implementation.
4. Right to data portability.
If we process your Personal Information based on a contract with you or based on your consent, or the processing is carried out by automated means, you may request your Personal Information in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You may also request the transfer of your Personal Information directly to another controller, where technically feasible, unless choosing to exercise this right adversely affects the rights and freedoms of others. A “controller” is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of your Personal Information.
5. Right to restriction of our processing.
You can restrict our processing of your Personal Information where one of the following applies: (a) you dispute the accuracy of Personal Information processed by or on our behalf or as authorized by us (for a period enabling us to verify its accuracy); (b) the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the Personal Information and request the restriction of its use instead; (c) we no longer need or find useful (within your consents) the Personal Information for the purposes of the processing, but it is required by you for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; and (d) you have objected to certain processing relying on legitimate interest, pending the verification whether our legitimate grounds override your rights. Restricted Personal Information shall only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest. We will notify you if the restriction is lifted.
6. Notification of erasure, rectification, and restriction.
We will provide notice to each recipient that we disclosed your Personal Information to regarding any rectification or erasure of Personal Information or restriction of processing, unless you initiated the disclosure or providing notice proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Upon your request, we will share the list of recipients with you.
7. Right to object to processing.
Where the processing of your Personal Information is based on consent, contract, or legitimate interests described under the Legal Bases for Processing heading above, you may restrict or object, at any time, to the processing of your Personal Information as permitted by applicable law. We may continue to process your Personal Information if it is necessary for the defense of legal claims, or for any other exceptions permitted by applicable law.
8. Automated individual decision-making, including profiling.
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal or similarly significant effects on you, except as allowed under applicable data protection laws.
9. Retention of your Personal Information.
Unless you delete your account or delete certain Personal Information (i.e., User Content, etc.), we will store your Personal Information as long as your account is open. If you delete your account, we will take the steps described under “Your Choices – Account Deletion” and delete all your Personal Information, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. The rights described above may be limited by local laws. Further, your right of access and deletion is not absolute and may not be available if fulfillment of such right would, among other things: o cause interference with execution and enforcement of the law and legal private rights (such as in the case of the investigation or detection of legal claims or the right to a fair trial); o breach or prejudice the rights of confidentiality and security of others; o prejudice security or grievance investigations, corporate re-organizations, future, and ongoing negotiations with third parties, the compliance with regulatory requirements relating to economic and financial management; or o otherwise violate the interests of others or where the burden or cost of providing access would be disproportionate.
