We may disclose Personal Information to certain non-affiliated specialized service providers, including professional advisors, consultants, technical service providers, and other third parties, who are bound by contractual obligations to keep Personal Information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them. We may disclose your Personal Information to third-party service providers to provide us with services such as  hosting of the Registration Services and the Sites, and related infrastructure, customer service, email delivery, auditing and other similar services. 
  • Business transfers: When applicable, we may share your information in connection with an actual or proposed substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of a Registration Service or business unit, a merger, consolidation, asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy; including in negotiations, due diligence, and integrations related to such transactions.
  • With your consent or at your direction: We may share information for any other purposes disclosed to you at the time we collect the information or pursuant to your consent or direction.

We may disclose de-identified or aggregated information that does not identify any individual (and therefore is not deemed to be Personal Information) without restriction.

5.         Data Security

We have implemented privacy and security measures reasonably adequate to preserve Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We use a self-assessment approach to ensure compliance with our privacy statements and verify periodically that our statements regarding our handling and use of Personal Information are accurate and reasonably complete in regard to the information covered. Although we work hard to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you choose to transmit to us through the Software, the Registration Services or the Sites, and you do so at your own risk. Please note that email is considered a non-encrypted (and therefore nonsecure) form of communication, and it has the potential to be accessed and viewed by others without your knowledge and permission. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be secure at all times. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us in accordance with the “How to Contact Us” section below. In accordance with applicable law, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to let you know promptly if a breach occurs that we determine may have compromised the privacy or security of your Personal Information. We are not responsible for any outcome if you circumvent any privacy settings or security measures.

6.         Retention of Personal Information

We will retain Personal Information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy and in order to provide the Software and the Registration Services. We will also retain your Personal Information to comply with our legal obligations, to conduct audits, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

7.         Children’s Privacy

The Registration Services and the Sites are only intended for individuals who are at least 16 years of age. We do not knowingly encourage or solicit visitors to the Sites who are under the age of 16 or knowingly collect Personal Information from anyone under the age of 16 without parental fiduciary consent. If we learn we have collected or received Personal Information from a child under 16 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 16, please contact us in accordance with the “How to Contact Us" section below.

We are committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). The Registration Services and the Sites are not directed to children under the age of 13 and children under the age of 13 are not to use or provide any information to the Registration Services or the Sites without express parental consent. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13.

Certain Exceptions to Deletion Request Rights: You have the right to request that we delete any of your Personal Information that we have collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your Personal Information from our records, unless an exception applies. We may deny your deletion request, including where retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to do the following (where permitted under applicable law):

  • Complete the transaction for which we collected the Personal Information, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with applicable law, or otherwise perform our contract with you, and retain applicable records relating thereto.

  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with individual expectations based on your relationship with us.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.

Exercising Access, Data Portability and Deletion Rights: To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable request to us as provided in the “How to Contact Us” section below.

Verification of Your Identity:  Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable request related to your Personal Information. You may make a verifiable request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. You must:

  • provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or an authorized representative; and
  • describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Information relates to you.

Making a request to exercise your rights does not require you to create an account with us.

9.         Withdrawal of your Consent

Where you have provided consent to process Personal Information, you have the right to withdraw such consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal or the lawfulness of processing based on other lawful bases. You may do this by contacting us as set forth in the “How to Contact Us” section below.

10.       Timing and Format for Responses to Requests

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable request within 30 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

The response we provide will explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your Personal Information that is readily usable and should allow you to transmit the Personal Information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

11.       European Economic Area, United Kingdom and Switzerland Residents Privacy Rights

Your Personal Information will be treated in a secure and confidential manner, using appropriate technical and organizational measures, in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR), and the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection.
