5. How We Handle Children’s Personal Information
Our websites are NOT directed to children under age of 13 (or 16 for children located in Europe) and we do not knowingly collect personal data from children under 13 (or 16 for children located in Europe). If we discover that a child under 13 (or 16 for children located in Europe) has provided us with personal data, we will promptly delete such personal data from our systems. Children may not submit any personal data to us without permission from their parents or guardians. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 (or 16 for children located in Europe) has provided personal information to us through the Services, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will delete that information from our databases to the extent required by law.
We are committed to keeping your personal data safe and strive to maintain the highest standards of security. For this purpose, we have put in place robust technical and organizational measures utilizing current state-of-the-art technologies to ensure that your personal data is adequately protected against loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. For the transfer of particularly sensitive personal data via the Internet, we exclusively use encrypted transmission routes.
Unfortunately, no transmission of data via the Internet is completely secure. So, while we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Website. Any transmission is at your risk. Once we have received your personal data, we will use strict procedures and security features to prevent unauthorized access. This includes but is not limited to the following measures:
- We employ a team of dedicated information security professionals and have established an information security system.
- We have further taken security protection measures for data collection, storage, display, processing, use, deletion, destruction and other aspects and use access control as well as encryption technologies.
- For the employees who may have access to your information, we sign confidentiality agreements with them and have established approval mechanisms for information access, internal or external transmission, and decryption. We also conduct regular training related to personal data protection to strengthen our employees’ awareness of privacy protection.
- As far as third parties (i.e. external companies) are rendering data processing services for us, we have committed them to compliance with our data privacy regulations.
7. Do-Not-Track Signals
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. We do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT.
8. How Your Information Will be Stored
We retain your information for as long as we deem necessary for the purpose for which that information was collected and for our legitimate business operations; provided, however, that your information is only retained to the extent permitted or required by applicable laws. When we no longer need to retain your information, we will take reasonable steps to remove it from our systems and records and/or take steps to anonymize it so that you can no longer be identified from it in accordance with our internal document retention policies.
When determining the retention period for your information, we take into account various criteria, such as the type of products and services requested by or provided to you, the nature and length of our relationship with you, possible re-enrolment with our products or services, the impact on the Services we provide to you if we delete some information about you, mandatory retention periods provided by law and the statute of limitations.

You have certain rights regarding your personal data, subject to the applicable law. These include the following rights to:
- Access your Personal Data: You have the right to ask us to confirm whether we are processing your personal data, and, where that is the case, access to the personal data and receive information on how your data is processed as well as ask us to provide a copy of your personal data.
- Rectify Your Personal Data: This enables you to have any incorrect, incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected.
- Erase Your Personal Data: This enables you to ask us to delete your personal data when, for example, the data we hold on you is no longer needed or when your data has been processed unlawfully.
- Object to Processing: You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data and request us to cease processing of it if, for example, this data is being processed for the purpose of direct marketing or where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party). In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
- Restrict the Processing: This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the accuracy of the personal data; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you require us to hold the data even if we no longer need it as you require it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
- Receive your Personal Data in a Usable Electronic Format and Transmit it to a Third Party (Right to Data Portability): If we are processing your personal data on the basis of your consent or a contract, you can ask to receive your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transmit those data to another controller without any hindrance from us.
- Withdraw Consent: You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we will not process that personal data further but may not be able to continue providing certain products or services to you for which the personal data was sought. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
- Request not to be Subject to a Decision Based Solely on Automated Processing, including profiling, which produces legal effect concerning you or similarly significantly affects you.
- Lodge a Complaint with Your Local Data Protection Authority: You have the right to submit your request and complain at any time to your local supervisory authority in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or of an alleged infringement of the GDPR. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the data protection authority, so please contact us in the first instance.
These rights may be limited in some situations – for example, where we can demonstrate that we have a legal requirement to process your data (such as where tax authorities require us to retain it) or where it is needed for the proper performance of a contract. In some instances, this may mean that we are able to retain data even if you withdraw your consent.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us at the details in Section “How to Contact Us” below. You may also update your personal information as provided in your profile of the setting on the Website.
