Types of Personal Data We Collect and Use

The types of personal data we may receive, as well as the purposes for which we collect and use it, are set out in our Privacy Policy.

We will only process personal data in ways that are compatible with the purposes we collected it for or for purposes you later authorize.

Transfers to Third Parties

Information about the types of third parties to which we disclose personal data and the purposes for which we do so is described in our Privacy Policy.

Disclosures for National Security or Law Enforcement

Please note that under certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose your personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

Access, Correction and Deletion Rights

You may have the right to access personal data that we hold about you and request that we correct, amend, or delete it if it is inaccurate or processed in violation of the Privacy Shield. These access rights may not apply in some cases, including where providing access is unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances or where it would violate the rights of a third party. If you would like to request access to, correction, amendment, or deletion of your personal data, you can submit a written request to the contact information provided below. We may request specific information from you to confirm your identity.

Your Choices

We commit to giving you an opportunity to opt out if personal data we control about you is to be disclosed to another independent third party or is to be used for a purpose that is materially different from those set out in our Privacy Policy. Where sensitive personal data is involved, we will obtain your express opt-in consent to do such things. If you otherwise wish to limit the use or disclosure of your personal data, please write to us at the contact details set out below. You can also ask us to remove you from any mailing list to which you previously subscribed by sending us an email or by following the “unsubscribe” link in any marketing communications we send to you.
