7. California Privacy
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides consumers with specific rights regarding their Personal Information. You have the right to request that businesses subject to the CCPA (which may include our Members with whom you have a relationship) disclose certain information to you about their collection and use of your Personal Information over the past 12 months. In addition, you have the right to ask such businesses to delete Personal Information collected from you, subject to certain exceptions. If the business sells Personal Information, you have a right to opt-out of that sale. Finally, a business cannot discriminate against you for exercising a CCPA right.
When offering services to its Members, Adserea acts as a “service provider” under the CCPA and our receipt and collection of any consumer Personal Information is completed on behalf of our Members in order for us to provide the Service. Please direct any requests for access or deletion of your Personal Information under the CCPA to our support email.
Consistent with California law, if you choose to exercise your applicable CCPA rights, we won’t charge you different prices or provide you a different quality of services. If we ever offer a financial incentive or product enhancement that is contingent upon you providing your Personal Information, we will not do so unless the benefits to you are reasonably related to the value of the Personal Information that you provide to us.
8. Third party links:
We may include or offer third party services on our website. These third party sites have independent privacy policies, and therefore we hold no responsibility over the actions and activities of these sites and how they handle your personal information.
9. How we protect your data:
We use reasonable physical, administrative, and technical measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, modification, theft and disclosure.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet and platforms is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted through the website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our website, such as your own account, you are responsible for keeping it confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
10. Where we store your data:
The majority of your personal information is collected, used, processed and stored in the United States. However, some of your personal information may be collected, used, processed, transferred and / or stored outside your country of residence and subject to laws of that jurisdiction. You expressly acknowledge and consent to the above mentioned data activities outside of your country of residence.
11. How long we retain your data
For users registered on our website, we store the personal information you provide in your user profile. You have the ability to see, edit or delete this information at any time, excluding the change of usernames. Website administrators also have the ability to see and edit this information.
If you leave a comment, the comment itself, and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is for the purpose of recognizing and approving any follow-up comments automatically, rather than holding them in a moderation queue.
12. Embedded content from other websites:
Articles on this site may include embedded content such as videos, images and articles etc.
Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you had visited said website.
