How we respond to Do Not Track Signals
Some browsers have “do not track” features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features are not all uniform. We do not currently respond to those signals.
Transfers to third countries
We may share your personal information within the Company (including to subsidiaries, affiliates and parent companies) or our suppliers and business partners and may transfer it to other countries in the world where we do business (for example, if you are in the European Economic Area, we may transfer your information to the United States of America). Some countries that we transfer your personal data to may have privacy laws that are not the same as the privacy laws in your own country. In such countries, we will still handle your information in the manner we describe here and will take such measures as are necessary to comply with applicable data protection laws when transferring and processing your information. The European Commission has approved the use of model contract clauses as a means of ensuring adequate protection when transferring data outside of the European Economic Area. By incorporating model contract clauses into a contract established between the parties transferring data, we are able to protect personal data that is transferred outside the European Economic Area to countries that have not been deemed by the European Commission to adequately protect personal data. A copy of these model contract clauses can be found at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2010:039:0005:0018:EN:PDF. For additional information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The length of time we will keep your personal information
In certain circumstances and to comply with applicable laws, we will retain your personal information only for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with services. We will also retain your personal information as necessary to comply with applicable legal obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements.
