Privacy policy

Last updated: Mai 4, 2021

This Privacy Policy describes the practices in connection with information that I collect through:

  • My social media pages and apps (collectively, my “Social Media Pages”);
  • HTML-formatted email messages that I may send to you that link to this Privacy Policy or other communications with you; and
  • Offline interactions you have with me.

Collectively, these Websites, Social Media Pages, emails, and offline interactions are referred to as the “Services.”


PERSONAL INFORMATION

Personal Information” is information that identifies you as an individual or relates to an identifiable individual.


Collection of Personal Information

I and my service providers may collect Personal Information in a variety of ways, including:

Through the Services.

  • I may collect Personal Information through the Services, for example, when you sign up for a newsletter, register an account to access the Services, attend one of my events, place an order over the phone, or make a purchase.

From Other Sources.

  • I may receive your Personal Information from other sources, for example:
    –  
    publicly available databases;
    –  joint marketing partners, when they share the information with me.
  • If you connect your social media account to my Services account, you will share certain Personal Information from your social media account with me, for example, your name, email address, photo, list of social media contacts, and any other information that may be or you make accessible to me.

I need to collect Personal Information in order to provide the requested Services to you. If you do not provide the information requested, I may not be able to provide the Services. If you disclose any Personal Information relating to other people to me or to my service providers in connection with the Services, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit me to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

 
Use of Personal Information

I and my service providers may use Personal Information for the following purposes:


Providing the functionality of the Services and fulfilling your requests.

  • To provide the Services’ functionality to you, such as providing you with related benefits, special promotions, or customer service.
  • To respond to your inquiries and fulfill your requests, when you contact me via online contact forms or otherwise, for example, when you send me questions, suggestions, compliments or complaints, or when you request a quote for or other information about my Services.
  • To complete your transactions, verify your information, and provide you with related benefits, special promotions, or customer service.
  • To send administrative information to you, such as changes to my terms, conditions, and policies.

  • I may offer you the opportunity to participate in sweepstakes, contests or other promotions.
  • Some of these promotions have additional rules containing information about how I will use and disclose your Personal Information. Please read those additional rules before choosing to participate.

I may use this information to manage my contractual relationship with you.

 
Aggregating and/or anonymizing Personal Information.

  • I may aggregate and/or anonymize Personal Information so that it will no longer be considered Personal Information. I may do so to generate other data for my use, which I may use and disclose for any purpose, as it no longer identifies you or any other individual.

Please note that any information you post or disclose through these services will become public and may be available to other visitors and the general public.

 
Other Uses and Disclosures

SECURITY

I seek to use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect your Personal Information.

If you have reason to believe that your interaction with me is no longer secure, please immediately notify me in accordance with the “Contact” section below.

 

CHOICES, INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS REQUESTS and other rights

You may opt out from receiving marketing-related emails from me. If you no longer want to receive marketing related emails from me on a going-forward basis, you may opt out by using the “unsubscribe” link in each email you receive from me, or by notifying me in accordance with the “Contact” section below. I will try to comply with your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that if you opt out of receiving marketing related emails from me, I may still send you important administrative messages, from which you cannot opt out.

How you can access, change, or delete your Personal Information

If you would like to request to access, correct, update, suppress, restrict, or delete Personal Information, object to or opt out of the processing of Personal Information, or if you would like to request to receive a copy of your Personal Information for purposes of transmitting it to another company (to the extent these rights are provided to you by applicable law), you may contact me in accordance with the “Contact” section below. I will respond to your request consistent with applicable law.

Lodge a complaint with a data protection authority

You may also lodge a complaint with an EU/EEA data protection authority for your country or region where you have your habitual residence or place of work or where an alleged infringement of applicable data protection law occurs. A list of data protection authorities is available here.

 

RETENTION PERIOD

I may retain Personal Information for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose(s) for which it was obtained and consistent with applicable law.

 The criteria used to determine the retention periods include:

  • Whether retention is advisable in light of my legal position (such as in regard to applicable statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations).

 

THIRD PARTY SERVICES

This Privacy Policy does not address, and I am not responsible for, the privacy, information, or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any website or service to which the Services link. The inclusion of a link on the Services does not imply endorsement of the linked site or service by me.

 

USE OF SERVICES BY MINORS

The Services are not directed to individuals under the age of sixteen (16), and I do not knowingly collect Personal Information from individuals under 16.

 

JURISDICTION AND CROSS-BORDER TRANSFER

Your Personal Information may be stored and processed in any country in which I engage service providers, and by using the Services you understand that your information may be transferred to countries outside of your country of residence, including the United States, which may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your Personal Information.

Some non-EEA countries are recognized by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of data protection according to EEA standards (the full list of these countries is available here. For transfers from the EEA to countries not considered adequate by the European Commission, I have put in place adequate measures, such as standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission to protect your Personal Information. You may obtain a copy of these measures by contacting me in accordance with the “Contact” section below.


SENSITIVE INFORMATION

Unless I request it, I ask that you not send me, and you not disclose, any sensitive Personal Information (e.g., social security numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic characteristics, criminal background, or trade union membership) on or through the Services or otherwise to me.


THIRD PARTY PAYMENT SERVICE

The Services may provide functionality allowing you to make payments to the Company using third-party payment services with which you have created your own account. When you use such a service to make a payment to me, your Personal Information will be collected by such third party and not by me, and will be subject to the third party’s privacy policy, rather than this Privacy Policy. I have no control over, and am not responsible for, this third party’s collection, use, and disclosure of your Personal Information.


UPDATES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

The “Last Updated” legend at the top of this Privacy Policy indicates when this Privacy Policy was last revised. Any changes will become effective when I post the revised Privacy Policy on the Services.
