Legitimate Business Interests

Where we rely on “legitimate business interests” as the reason for processing your information, we have to carry out a balancing exercise to make sure your rights as an individual are not impacted. In some cases, we have set out our balancing test above. Otherwise, as a result of our balancing test, which is detailed below, we have determined, acting reasonably and considering the circumstances, that we are able to process your Personal Information in accordance with data protection laws on the basis that we have a legitimate business interest.

We have a legitimate business interest in processing your Personal Information as:

We need the information to respond to your inquiries;

We need the information to send you information; and

We would be unable to provide our Services without processing your information.

We consider that it is reasonable for us to process your Personal Information for the purposes of our legitimate interests outlined above as (a) we process your Personal Information only so far as is necessary for such purpose and (b) it can be reasonably expected for us to process your Personal Information in this way. In most cases, the information is being processed for your benefit as well as ours.

If we wish to process your existing information for a new purpose other than as stated above, and you are located in the European Union, the United Kingdom or any other jurisdiction that has passed a similar data privacy law, we must inform you of that further processing and provide information surrounding your information’s use.

SHARING YOUR INFORMATION

We share non-Personal Information with third parties at our discretion. We do not sell Personal Information to third parties. In connection with our Services, we may share your Personal Information with certain third parties who we engage to help us run our business and perform the services, including under the following circumstances:

  • Software and service providers we use to manage and process your information.
  • Affiliates, subsidiaries, and customers.
  • Web analytics providers who monitor and analyze the use of our Services (including Google Analytics). For more information about Google Analytics, please visit https://policies.google.com/privacy/google-partners.
  • Business partners, including Partners who provide access to their respective customers to our products and services in partnership or collaboration with us.
  • Other third parties that you expressly request us to share your Personal Information with

Additionally, we will share your Personal Information with third parties where required by law, where it is necessary in connection with our Services or products, and/or to investigate or prevent fraud, abusive or unlawful uses or activities, violations of the terms governing use of the Services and/or any law, rule or regulation, or to protect the security or integrity of the Services.

If we are subject to a merger or acquisition with/by another company, we may share information with the other company in connection with the transaction, and your Personal Information may be transferred to such company upon completion of the transaction. Such acquiring company’s right to use your Personal Information shall be limited to the terms of this Policy unless additional notice is provided to you.

Most of the third parties with whom we may share your personal information are located and store your information in the United States, although some may store your information outside of the United States, the laws of which may differ than those governing your personal information in your country. If you are located in the European Union or the United Kingdom, and to the extent the data protection laws in such country are deemed by your country to have inadequate data protection, we have put in place certain measures to ensure that your personal information is subject to suitable safeguards in such transfer outside the European Union or the United Kingdom.

HOW WE SAFEGUARD YOUR INFORMATION

We have put in place appropriate security measures to reduce the risks of loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure and alteration. In addition, we limit access to your Personal Information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. Other than third parties with whom we share Personal Information in connection with our performance of Services, third parties we engage in our business who may have access to your Personal Information will only process your Personal Information on our instructions and they are required to only use your data as necessary to perform their contract with us

The security of your data is important to us but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk.

HOW LONG WE STORE YOUR INFORMATION

We will retain your Personal Information only for as long as is necessary for the legitimate business purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your Personal Information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal, accounting, or reporting obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes and enforce our legal agreements and policies. Additionally, we may continue to store your Personal Information contained in our standard back-ups.

We also will retain Usage Information for internal analysis purposes. Usage Information is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when Usage Information is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our Services or products, or we are legally obligated to retain Usage Information for longer periods.

Upon your request, we will delete or de-identify your Personal Information, unless we are legally required or allowed to maintain such Personal Information.

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information. Please understand that we are required to verify your request and may require you to provide some information to enable us to carry out such verification. 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 verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request

Marketing Preferences. You can opt out from receiving future marketing communications from us at any time by using the unsubscribe function in the email you receive from us, or contacting us as set forth under “How to contact us” above. Please allow sufficient time for your preferences to be processed. Even if you opt out of receiving marketing messages, we may still contact you for transactional purposes like confirming or following up on an order or service request.

As noted above in “The Information We Collect About You,” you can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings on your browser or device. However, if you choose to disable cookies, your experience with our Services may be impaired and some features may not work as they were intended.

Additionally, Do Not Track is a preference you can set in your web browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked. You can enable or disable Do Not Track by visiting the preferences or settings page of your web browser. However, these features are not yet uniform, so we do not currently respond to such features or signals. Therefore, if you select or turn on a “do not track” feature in your web browser, we and our third-party providers may continue collecting information about your online activities as described in this Privacy Policy.

You can choose to limit the data that third party services (e.g., Social Media Platforms) share with us using the options provided to you by the applicable third party service (for example, the options provided by Social Media Platforms when you connect your social media account with our Services). You can also disconnect your use of our Services from the third-party service at any time using the options provided to you by the applicable third-party service. Please note, however, that if you disconnect from the third-party service, that will not delete the data we may have previously collected while you were connected.

TRANSFER OF DATA; SPECIAL NOTICE TO NON-U.S. USERS

Your information, including Personal Information, may be transferred to, and maintained on, computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ from those of your jurisdiction. If you are located outside United States and choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Information, to the United States and process it there. Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

We will take all the steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and no transfer of your Personal Information will take place to an organization or a country unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of your data and other Personal Information.

If you are located in a country outside the U.S. and submit Personal Information to us, you consent to the general use and disclosure of such information as provided in this Privacy Policy and to the transfer and/or storage of that information to the U.S. and other countries outside your home country.

POLICY ON CHILDREN’S INFORMATION

If we become aware that we have collected Personal Information from Children without verification of parental consent, we take reasonable steps to remove that information from our servers

In the event you designate a Child as a permitted user of your account, you represent and warrant that you are such Child’s parent or guardian, and you consent to Fanzone Connect collecting and processing the Child’s personal information, contacting them for the purpose of providing them with access to your account and allowing the Child to register for their own account to access the Services.
