Visitors from the European Union
On May 25, 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") went into effect in the European Union ("EU"). The GDPR extends certain rights to natural persons involving the privacy of their personal information.
Our Firm is the data controller for any personal information provided via our website. Our Firm does not have a data protection officer in the EU. Any information that you provide to us will be stored in the United States. We do not intend to transfer your personal data to another country or international organization.
We will retain any personal information that you provide via our website for seven (7) years from the date you provided or last updated that information, unless you request that information be deleted at an earlier date. If that information is subject to a litigation hold, or is required to assert or defend a legal claim, then we will hold that information until the claim or action is finally resolved.
Under the GDPR individuals are granted the following rights:
Right of Access. You have the right to ask what personal information we have about you in our possession. You have the right to obtain a copy of your personal data free of charge so long as it does not adversely affect the rights of others. We may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs for additional copies. The right of access includes the right to request that we update, correct or complete your personal information in our possession.
Right of Erasure. You have a right to request that data be deleted or erased when it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected or processed, when you withdraw your consent, when data is unlawfully processed, to comply with a legal obligation of the EU or a Member State, or when you object to the processing and we are unable to demonstrate compelling, legitimate grounds for the processing which overrides your rights, freedoms or interests. Personal data does not have to be erased when and to the extent it is necessary "for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims."
Right to Restrict Processing. You have a right to restrict the processing of your personal data when you contest the accuracy of the personal data in our possession until we are able to verify its accuracy, if the processing is unlawful and you oppose its erasure and request restriction instead.
Right to Data Portability. The right to data portability is triggered when processing activity was based on your consent, or was necessary for the performance of a contract, and the processing was carried out by automated means. This right, however, shall not adversely affect the rights of others.
Automated Decision Making. You have the right not to be subjected to decision-making based solely on automated processing or profiling that either significantly affects you or results in some sort of legal effect. This right does not apply to decisions that are necessary for entering into or performing a contract with you or are based on your explicit consent.
Right to Object to Processing. You have the right to object to processing when it is based on a "legitimate interest" of the controller or a third party, or to processing that occurs for direct marketing purposes.
Withdrawing Your Consent. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Right to Complain. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority about our data privacy practices where you reside.
How to Exercise These Rights. You can exercise these rights by sending an email to email@example.com. We will review any requests we receive and will endeavor to respond in a timely manner. For security reasons, we may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity before taking action on any request, and to ensure your right of access and the exercise any of GDPR right does not adversely affect the rights of others.
We reserve the right to refuse to act on a request, or to charge a reasonable administrative fee when a request is either manifestly unfounded or excessive because of its repetitive character.
