When we transfer Personal Data to servers controlled by a third-party data hosting company we conduct security checks on these companies to ensure adequate safeguards are in place to protect the transfer of Personal Data. We take steps reasonably necessary to ensure that Personal Data is transferred securely. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet, server, database, network or email transmission is never fully secure or error free. Although we do our best to protect Personal Data, we cannot guarantee the security of the Personal Data you transmit to us, and you accept the inherent risk associated with such transmission.
We use Personal Data for our legitimate business interests, with your consent, or in order to comply with our legal obligations.
We process Personal Data for the following purposes:
operate our business. This means we use your data to provide a product or service to you, to provide you with technical support, to respond to your questions, to provide further information in respect of services you have purchased from us, to determine trends and measure site usage which aids in the design of new products and services, to protect against wrongdoing, and to enforce our website terms and conditions of use and other agreements.
We may process your Personal Data for: 1) forensics purposes, which includes investigating and preventing security incidents such as breaches, attacks and hacks; and 2) audit purposes, which includes use for administrative purposes, such as billing and transaction logs.
We consider your information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. We do not sell your Personal Data to third parties, including to third-party advertisers.
There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may disclose, transfer or share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, or if Acme Systems, or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, the relevant Personal Data held by us will be one of the transferred assets.
We may use or disclose your Personal Data in order to comply with a legal obligation, to prevent loss of life or injury, or to protect the rights or property of Acme Systems. Where possible we will tell you in advance of such disclosure.
We disclose Personal Data in the ordinary course of business when we engage suppliers to help provide products and services to you. For example, we may engage marketing agencies, database service providers, backup and disaster recovery service providers, email service providers and others. We provide Personal Data to third parties solely for the purposes of delivering our products and services.
We may share aggregated demographic data with our partners or third-party providers. This data is not linked to any information that can identify any individual person.
If you connect or integrate any social media services with services we provide, you may receive social notifications either from us or from third-party companies providing social media services. You can manage these social notifications by changing your privacy settings on the relevant social media site or by discontinuing your interaction with the third-party site.

Where you create a connection between Acme Systems services and third-party sites, we may collect, use, disclose, transfer and store or retain information relating to your account with such third-party services.
We have appropriate security measures in place to protect against loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected. We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving Personal Data, we use network access control technology to limit access to the systems on which Personal Data is stored, and we monitor for possible vulnerabilities and attacks.

By collecting or storing your Personal Data, we do not undertake to be bound by any additional information security measures that may apply to you or your Personal Data under other laws, or additional protection that applies to the processing of sensitive personal data, unless we have agreed in a separate services agreement to do so.
If we become aware that there has been a breach in security of any of the Personal Data that we store or that is stored by our third-party service providers, we will promptly notify you as required by law and consistent with our need to determine the scope of the breach and to safeguard our systems.
We keep Personal Data only for as long as necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, to provide you with products or services, for legitimate business interests including audit and forensics purposes, and where required or permitted by law. Please note that even if we delete your Personal Data it may persist on backup or archival media for an additional period of time.
In compliance with GDPR, you can request access (i.e. to transfer in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, to you), correction or deletion of any personal information that Acme Systems has about you. You can access, change or delete your personal information at any time by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your request will be completed within 30 days.
You also have rights to object to some processing that is based on our legitimate interests, such as profiling that we perform for the purposes of direct marketing, and, where we have asked for your consent to process your data, to withdraw this consent.
These rights are limited in some situations – for example, we can demonstrate that we have a legal requirement to process your personal information. In some instances, this means that we may retain some data even if you withdraw your consent.
Where we require your personal information to comply with legal or contractual obligations, then provision of such data is mandatory: if such data is not provided, then we will not be able to manage our contractual relationship with you, or to meet obligations placed on us. In all other cases, provision of requested personal information is optional.

The relevant data protection authority will be the data protection authority of the country: (i) of your habitual residence; (ii) of your place of work; or (iii) in which you consider the alleged infringement has occurred.
