  1. COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKERS

We may use cookies, pixels and other trackers as described in this Privacy Policy, including on our Sites to recognize a user’s device each time it is used to visit a particular Site and to keep count of how often you return. Cookies can also track how you use our Sites, and your preferences for features and functions. 

You can disable or turn off certain cookies by changing the settings on certain Internet browsers or devices. If you block cookies, certain functionality of the Sites may become impaired or disabled. For instance, by changing these settings you may later be required to re-enter certain information each time you visit or attempt to use our Sites. The way to control your cookies settings depends on the tool. Certain browsers can be set to reject browser cookies. See the “help” section of your particular web browser for more details on rejecting, blocking, and deleting cookies.

We or our advertising providers may use cookies and other trackers to collect data about your activities on our Sites and non-affiliated sites over time across multiple websites and platforms, for interest-based advertising purposes and to otherwise help determine advertising content that may be of interest to you. You may choose not to participate in certain interest-based advertising by opting out. To do this, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices and https://optout.privacyrights.info/ to opt out of certain uses of cookies for advertising purposes. If you use multiple devices or browsers you will need to opt-out on each one.

Please keep in mind that if you choose to delete cookies from that browser or if you clear your cache, you will delete settings associated with that browser and will need to opt-out again. Opting out does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It means that the companies from which you opted out may no longer customize ads that are relevant to you based on data on your interests and web usage patterns.

Our “Do Not Track” Policy. 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. If you block cookies, certain features on our Site may not work. If you block or reject cookies, not all of the tracking described here will stop.

These parties may make information, goods or services available on our Site, provide opportunities to participate in promotions on our Sites, or engage in activities that link or redirect your browser to their websites or platforms. You should be aware that even if you encounter an advertisement or content of, or a link or reference to a third party website on one of our Site, and even if we have a relationship with them, we are not responsible for the practices or policies of their websites or any rules they have regarding the collection, disclosure or use of information (including personal information), and their privacy policies will govern and apply.

  1. WE PROCESS AND STORE INFORMATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Information we collect may be transferred to, processed in, or stored in the United States.  Our Sites are subject to U.S. laws, which may not afford the same level protection as those in your country.

 

  1. YOUR EUROPEAN UNION AND THE UNITED KINGDOM PRIVACY RIGHTS

For the purpose of EU and UK data protection laws, we act as a controller in connection with certain personal information described in this Privacy Policy. As detailed below, to the extent provided by the law of your jurisdiction, you may have legal rights in relation to the personal information about you that we hold. We may require you to prove your identity with approved identification if you request this information.

Lawful basis for processing your personal data.

We process on the following legal bases:

Contract: It is necessary for our performance of the contract you have agreed to enter with us.   If you do not provide your personal data to us, we will not be able to carry out our obligations under the terms of the contract.

  1. Legitimate Interests: We process your personal data if it is based on our legitimate interests. For example, we may process personal data in reliance on a legitimate interest in the effective and lawful operation of our business, the effective delivery and improvement of our products, services, and platforms, information security operations, compliance with laws and regulations, compliance with requests for disclosure to law enforcement, courts, and regulatory bodies, and to prevent and detect fraud or suspected fraud. In relation to general inquiry and complaints you send us, our legitimate interest is to provide you with information you have requested and to provide customer support. You can object to the processing that we carry out on the grounds of legitimate interests. See the section “Rights of data subjects” below to find out how.
  2. Consent: Where you have given us consent to do so, we provide you, or permit third parties to provide you, with information about goods or services which we feel may interest you. You have the right to withdraw your consent. Please see the section “Rights of data subjects” below to find out how.
  3. Legal Claims: We need to process your personal data to defend or establish a legal claim (for example, claims relating to the sale of our goods and services under contract law).

Rights of data subjects

You have the following rights, where provided under applicable law, regarding your information (each of which are subject to various exceptions and limitations):

  1. The right to be informed: You have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your information and your rights. This is why we are providing you with the information in this Privacy Policy.
  2. The right of access: You have the right to obtain access to your information (if we are processing it), and certain other information (similar to that provided in this Privacy Policy). This is so you are aware and can check that we are using your information in accordance with data protection law.
  3. The right to rectification: You are entitled to have your information corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
  4. The right to erasure: This is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your information where there’s no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.
  5. The right to restrict processing: You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your information. When processing is restricted, we can still store your information. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their information to be ‘blocked’ to make sure the restriction is respected in future.
  6. The right to data portability: You have rights to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services and platforms.
  7. The right to object: You have the right to object to certain types of processing, in particular processing based on our legitimate interests. You also can object at any time to your information being used for direct marketing purposes (including profiling related to such direct marketing). Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes.
  8. The right to refuse or withdraw consent: You have the right to refuse to provide and withdraw your consent to processing of your personal information at any time with effect for future processing.

If you are not satisfied with our response to your complaint or believe our processing of your information does not comply with data protection law, you can make a complaint to a supervisory data protection authority. If you are a UK resident, you can make a complaint to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO): https://ico.org.uk/concerns/.

Please note your rights in relation to your personal data are not absolute. We may, for example, deny you access to your personal data when required or authorized by law, or if granting access would have an unreasonable impact on another individual’s privacy. We will retain and use your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy, including as necessary to comply with our legal and business obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.  You can submit a request regarding your personal information online by clicking here or by emailing us at corey@vaask.com.
