No purpose in this notice will require us to keep your personal information for longer than one (1) year.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize such information, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
Who are the recipients of your personal data?
These parties will have access to your personal data:

As part of the tools we utilize (refer to the section on the recipients of your personal data, especially our processors), your personal data may be transferred outside the United States. The transfer of your personal data in this context is secured through the implementation of the following safeguards:
Personal data may be transferred to a country recognized by the United States as providing an adequate level of protection. This recognition aligns with the standards set forth by the relevant privacy regulations, ensuring a level of protection considered sufficient and adequate.
Alternatively, if the personal data is transferred to a country whose level of data protection has not been formally recognized as adequate by United States regulations, such transfers are carried out based on appropriate safeguards specified in relevant privacy regulations. These safeguards include, but are not limited to, the execution of Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the relevant regulatory authorities, the application of Binding Corporate Rules, or adherence to an approved certification mechanism.
Additionally, the transfer of personal data may occur under any appropriate safeguards described in applicable privacy regulations.
What rights do you have regarding your personal data?
You have the following rights with regard to your personal data:
Right to request deletion of the data — Request to delete
You can ask for the deletion of your personal information. If you ask us to delete your personal information, we will respect your request and delete your personal information, subject to certain exceptions provided by law, such as (but not limited to) the exercise by another consumer of his or her right to free speech, our compliance requirements resulting from a legal obligation, or any processing that may be required to protect against illegal activities.
Right to be informed — Request to know:
Depending on the circumstances, you have a right to know:
whether we collect and use your personal information;
the categories of personal information that we collect;
the purposes for which the collected personal information is used;
whether we sell your personal information to third parties;
the categories of personal information that we sold or disclosed for a business purpose;
the categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold or disclosed for a business purpose; and

In accordance with applicable law, we are not obligated to provide or delete consumer information de-identified in response to a consumer request or re-identify individual data to verify a consumer request.
Right to Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of a Consumer’s Privacy Rights
We will not discriminate against you if you exercise your privacy rights.
Upon receiving your request, we will need to verify your identity to determine whether you are the same person with whom we have the information in our system. These verification efforts require us to ask you to provide information so that we can match it with the information you have previously provided us. For instance, depending on the type of request you submit, we may ask you to provide certain information so that we can match the information you provide with the information we already have on file, or we may contact you through a communication method (e.g., phone or email) that you have previously provided to us. We may also use other verification methods as the circumstances dictate.
We will only use the personal information provided in your request to verify your identity or authority to make the request. To the extent possible, we will avoid requesting additional information from you for the purposes of verification. However, if we cannot verify your identity from the information already maintained by us, we may request that you provide additional information for the purposes of verifying your identity and for security or fraud-prevention purposes. We will delete such additional information as soon as we finish verifying you.
Other privacy rights
You may object to the processing of your personal information.
You may request correction of your personal data if it is incorrect or no longer relevant or ask to restrict the processing of the information.
You can designate an authorized agent to request the CCPA on your behalf. We may deny a request from an authorized agent who does not submit proof that they have been validly authorized to act on your behalf in accordance with the CCPA.
You may request to opt out from future selling of your personal information to third parties. Upon receiving an opt-out request, we will act upon the request as soon as feasibly possible, but no later than fifteen (15) days from the request submission date.
