Personal data we collect through our Services may include information requested from time to time, such as names, email addresses, addresses, phone numbers, IP addresses, and more. When we combine personal and non-personal data, as long as they are in combination, we treat them as personal data.

To whom do we disclose this data?

We may disclose your data to our service providers to operate our Services (e.g., data storage through third-party hosting services, providing technical support, etc.).

 

We may also disclose your data under the following circumstances: (i) to investigate, detect, prevent, or address illegal activities or other misconduct; (ii) to establish or exercise our rights of defense; (iii) to protect our rights, property, or personal safety, as well as the safety of our users or the public; (iv) in the event of a change of control within our organization or one of our affiliated companies (through merger, acquisition, purchase of substantially all assets, etc.); (v) to collect, retain, and/or manage your data through authorized third-party providers (e.g., cloud service providers) as reasonably necessary for business purposes; (vi) to collaborate with third parties to improve your user experience. To avoid misunderstandings, we want to clarify that we may transmit or disclose non-personal data to third parties at our discretion or otherwise use it.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

When you visit or access our Services, we authorize third parties to use web beacons, cookies, pixel tags, scripts, and other technologies and analytical services ("tracking technologies"). These tracking technologies may allow third parties to automatically collect your data to enhance the navigation experience on our digital assets, optimize their performance, ensure a tailored user experience, and for security and fraud prevention purposes.

 

Through our Services and digital assets (including websites and applications using our services), we may provide advertising tailored to you, based on your recent browsing behavior on websites, devices, or browsers.

 

To provide these ads, we may use cookies and/or JavaScript and/or web beacons (including transparent GIFs) and/or HTML5 Local Storage and/or other technologies. We may also employ third parties, such as network advertisers (i.e., third parties that display ads based on your website visits), to deliver targeted ads. External providers of advertising networks, advertisers, sponsors, and/or website traffic measurement services may also use cookies and/or JavaScript and/or web beacons (including transparent GIFs) and/or Flash cookies and/or other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and customize advertising content for you. These third-party cookies and other technologies are subject to the specific privacy policy of the respective third party and not this one.

If you want to take advantage of one of our free offers, you automatically subscribe to our email newsletter, from which you can unsubscribe at any time. If you want to avail yourself of the free offer, your registration with a valid email address and thus your consent to the processing of your personal data by us is required. Please refer to the consent statement on the registration form for the free offer.

 

Your email address will be used for marketing purposes (e.g., weekly newsletter, selected sales emails). In every email, you have the option to pause or unsubscribe from the newsletter.

Where do we store the data?

Non-personal data

 

Please note that our companies, as well as our trusted partners and service providers, are located worldwide. For the purposes explained in this Privacy Policy, we store and process all non-personal data we collect in different jurisdictions.

 

Personal data

 

Personal data may be maintained, processed, and stored in the United States, Ireland, South Korea, Taiwan, Israel, and,  where required for the proper provision of our services and/or legally mandated (as further explained below), in other jurisdictions.

How long will the data be retained?

Please note that we retain the collected data for as long as necessary to provide our services, comply with our legal and contractual obligations to you, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

 

We may correct, supplement, or delete inaccurate or incomplete data at our discretion.

How do we protect the data?

The hosting service for our digital assets provides us with the online platform through which we can offer our services. Your data may be stored on secure servers behind a firewall, and secure HTTPS access is provided to most areas of its services.

 

Despite the measures and efforts taken by us and our hosting provider, we cannot guarantee absolute protection and security of the data you upload, publish, or otherwise provide to us or others.

 

For this reason, we ask you to set secure passwords and avoid transmitting confidential information that, if disclosed, could cause significant or sustained harm through email or instant messaging. Since email and instant messaging are not considered secure communication forms, we also ask you not to disclose confidential information through these communication channels. 

How do we handle minors?

The services are not intended for users who have not reached the legal age of majority. We will not knowingly collect data from children. If you are not of legal age, you should not download or use the services and should not provide us with any information.

 

We reserve the right to request proof of age at any time to verify if minors are using our services. In the event that we become aware that a minor is using our services, we may prohibit and block access to our services for these users and may delete all data stored about them. If you have reason to believe that a minor has provided data to us, please contact us as explained below.

 

We use your personal data only for the purposes set out in the Privacy Policy and only when we are convinced that:

 

- The use of your personal data is necessary to fulfill or enter into a contract (e.g., to provide you with the services themselves or customer support or technical support).

- The use of your personal data is necessary to comply with relevant legal or regulatory obligations.

- The use of your personal data is necessary to support our legitimate business interests (provided this is done in a way that is proportionate and respects your privacy rights).

- Request the deletion of your personal data.

- Object to the processing of your personal data by us.

- Request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

- File a complaint with a supervisory authority.

 

Please note, however, that these rights are not unlimited and may be subject to our own legitimate interests and regulatory requirements. If you have general questions about the personal data we collect and its use, please contact us as explained below.

 

In the course of providing the services, we may transfer data across borders to affiliated companies or other third parties and from your country/jurisdiction to other countries/jurisdictions worldwide. By using the services, you consent to the transfer of your data outside the EEA.

 

If you are a resident of the EEA, your personal data will only be transferred to locations outside the EEA if we are convinced that there is an adequate or comparable level of protection for personal data. We will take appropriate steps to ensure that we have adequate contractual agreements with our third parties to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken, minimizing the risk of unauthorized use, alteration, deletion, loss, or theft of your personal data, and that these third parties act at all times in accordance with applicable laws.

 

Rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act

 

If you use the services as a resident of California, you may be entitled under the California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA") to access and delete your data.
