OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY:

We have updated our User Privacy Policy to reflect changes we’ve made to strengthen your privacy rights. This is part of our ongoing commitment to be transparent about how we use your data and how we keep it safe. We have included changes to address the new standards introduced by the European data protection law known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

THE GDPR & INDIVIDUALS IN THE EU:

If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and our services are targeted to you, please note:

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new comprehensive data protection law that updates existing EU laws to strengthen the protection of “personal data” (any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, so called “data subjects”) in light of rapid technological developments, the increasingly global nature of business and more complex international flows of personal data. The GDPR replaces the current patchwork of national data protection laws with a single set of rules, directly enforceable in each EU member state. The GDPR takes effect on May 25, 2018.

We may need to collect and process the types of Personal Information listed above in order to provide our services to you or because we are legally required to do so. If you do not provide the information that we request, we may not be able to provide you with the services. We may use the Personal Information for our legitimate business interests, including those listed above.

We do not knowingly permit children in the EEA under age 16 to register for any service. We do not knowingly collect, use or disclose personal information about users under age 16, except as permitted by law.

If you would like to receive an electronic copy of your Personal Information for purposes of transmitting it to another company, you may contact us at [email protected] Please include "Personal Information Request" in the subject line.

Regarding the section entitled “Location of Data” in Section 6, above: Some non-EEA countries are recognized by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of data protection according to EEA standards. The full list of these countries is available at http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/adequacy/index_en.htm.

Regarding the section entitled “Data Retention” in Section 6, above: We keep your Personal Information for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose(s) for which it was obtained. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include (i) for as long as we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide the services to you; (ii) as required by a legal obligation to which we are subject; or (iii) as advisable in light of our legal position (such as in regard of applicable statutes of limitations, litigation, or regulatory investigations).
