1. Information Collected and Uses
We collect various types of personal information depending on how you use our services and website.
When you visit our website, we record your visit in a log file, including the name of each accessed webpage, the date and time of access, the data volume transferred, the operating system used by you, the referrer URL (the previously visited website), your IP address and the access requesting provider. We collect this information to ensure website security.
If you are a website visitor that chooses to submit information through the “Contact Us” form, or other form, on our website, we may collect your name, company, email address, phone number, and other information you choose to voluntarily provide. We collect this information to respond to your inquiries.
All of the above-described processing is legally based in our legitimate interest, which is the proper functioning of our commercial activity.
If you are a current client paying an invoice online, you will be redirected to a third-party website, which processes our billing information and collects certain information including payment amount, cardholder name, card number, and other additional information you voluntarily provide. We do not control or operate these payment services and do not collect any of the information submitted.
We believe the risk to your data protection rights is not excessive, and we do not use techniques that collect personal information without your knowledge or sell email addresses or provide information submitted through our website to any third parties for direct marketing purposes.
While we process your personal information, we will ensure that it is processed in accordance with this Policy.
Other Information Collected
When you use our website, we may also collect information that, by itself, cannot be used to directly identify or contact you, such as demographic information or technical information (such as the type of browser you are using or the website you visit immediately before or immediately after you visit our website). Such information may also include the information that you provide through your use of our website, such as the terms you enter into a search form. This information helps us evaluate website usage and trends and allows us to improve our website content.
2. Security of the Information We Collect
The security of your personal information is important to us and we maintain reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to secure the personal information we collect, prevent unauthorized access, and maintain data accuracy. Despite our efforts, there is always some risk in transmitting electronic information. Though we use security measures consistent with industry standards, we cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted.
3. Children’s Privacy
Our website is not intended to knowingly collect personal information from children. Accordingly, we do not distribute such information to third parties or otherwise process such information. If you are a parent/guardian and you suspect your child may have submitted personal information to us, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we may remove this information from our files.
4. Your Rights
The following section explains rights that you may exercise (where available under applicable law).
Access – You have the right to obtain from us confirmation as to whether or not your personal information is being processed by us, and about certain other information (similar to that provided in this policy) about how it is used. You also have the right to access your personal information, by requesting a copy of the personal information concerning you, which in most cases will be provided free of charge. This is so you are aware and can check that we are using your information in accordance with applicable data protection and privacy laws. We can refuse repetitive requests or those that may reveal information about another person.
Correcting incorrect information– You can ask us to take measures to correct your personal information if it is inaccurate or incomplete (e.g., if we have the wrong name or address for you).
Deletion of information – You may request the deletion or removal of your personal information where, for example, there is no compelling reason for us to keep using it or its use is unlawful. This is however not a general right to erasure and there are some exceptions, e.g., where we need to use the information in defense of a legal claim or to comply with a legal obligation.
The right to restrict processing – You have the right to “block” or suppress the further use of your personal information when we are assessing a request for rectification or as an alternative to erasure. When processing is restricted, we can still store your personal information, but may not use it further.
The right to data portability – You have the right to obtain and reuse certain personal information for your own purposes across different organizations (being separate data controllers). This only applies to your personal information that you have provided to us that we are processing with your consent and for the purposes of contract fulfillment, which is being processed by automated means. In such a case we will provide you with a copy of your data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or (where technically feasible) we may transmit your data directly to a separate data controller.
The right to object – You have the right to object to certain types of processing, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time insofar as that processing takes place for the purposes of our legitimate interests. We will be allowed to continue to process the personal information if we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms or we need this for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. If you object to the processing of your personal information for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal information for such purposes.
The right to withdraw consent – Where we process your personal information on the basis of your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. However, such withdrawal does not affect the lawfulness of the processing that occurred prior to such withdrawal.
The right to lodge a complaint – If you believe that we do not comply with applicable data protection laws, you have the right to lodge a complaint before any competent data protection authority.
You may contact us any time at email@example.com to exercise these rights. Please note that data which cannot be used to identify you, e.g., data that has been anonymized for analysis purposes, is not affected by the above rights.
