why we collect it, and what we do with it. When you share information with us, we can make
our services even better for you. For instance, we can show you more relevant search results
and ads, help you connect with people or to make sharing with others quicker and easier. As
you use our services, we want you to be clear how we're using information and the ways in
which you can protect your privacy. This is important; we hope you will take time to read it
carefully. Remember, you can find controls to manage your information and protect your
privacy and security. We've tried to keep it as simple as possible.
- Right to access, correct and delete data and to object to data processing
- Our customers have the right to access, correct and delete personal data relating to them,
and to object to the processing of such data, by addressing 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 therefore warns the Site users
of the potential risks involved in the functioning and use of the Internet. The Site may
include links to other web sites or other internet sources. As the Company cannot control
these web sites and external sources, the Company cannot be held responsible for the
provision or display of these web sites and external sources, and may not be held liable for
the content, advertising, products, services or any other material available on or from
these web sites 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 about 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 web site by email, SMS, physical mail, and
telephone. If you receive promotional email or SMS messages from us and would like to opt
out, you can do so by following the directions in that message. You can also make choices
about the receipt of promotional email, telephone calls, and postal mail by visiting and
signing into Company Promotional Communications Manager, which allows you to update contact
information, manage contact preferences, opt out of email subscriptions, and choose whether
to share your contact information with our partners. These choices do not apply to mandatory
service communications that are part of certain web site services.
- Information We Collect
- Our store collects data to operate effectively and provide you the best experiences with 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 by, for example,
using technologies like cookies, and 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 services from other companies to help us determine a location based
on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your location. The data we
collect depends on the services and features you use.
- How We Use Your Information
- Our web site 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 web site
services you use to give you a more seamless, consistent and personalized experience.
However, to enhance privacy, we have built in 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 payment data with banks and other entities that process payment
transactions or provide other financial services, and for fraud prevention and credit risk
reduction. In addition, we share personal data among our controlled affiliates and
subsidiaries. We also share personal data with vendors or agents working on our behalf for
the purposes described in this statement. For example, companies we've hired to provide
customer service support or assist in protecting and securing our systems and services may
need access to personal data in order to provide those functions. In such cases, these
companies must abide by our data privacy and security requirements and are not allowed to
use 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.
