Certain jurisdictions grant individuals rights with respect to their Personal Information. Depending on applicable law, you may have the right to access, update, delete, receive a copy of, or restrict our use of your Personal Information. You may also have the right to object to automatic decision making, object to the processing of your publicly disclosed information, or appeal our decision on your rights request. When we process your Personal Information based on your consent, you may have the right to withdraw your consent. If you are a close relative of a deceased, to the extent provided under applicable law, you may request to access, correct, update, receive a copy, or delete the deceased’s information. These rights may be limited in some circumstances by local law. For example, we may retain certain and limited information about your request for recordkeeping purposes, to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting a change or deletion, for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, for our compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and/or as otherwise required by law.
If you would like to exercise your privacy rights, you may submit your request through this form. We will respond to your request within thirty (30) days or as soon as reasonably practicable, or as otherwise required by applicable law.
In your request, please make clear relevant details, for example, what Personal Information you would like to have updated. Please do not include more Personal Information than the form requires. For your protection, we will verify your identity before processing your request. When you are a close relative of a deceased and are requesting to access, correct, update, receive a copy, or delete the deceased’s information, we may need to verify your identity and the relationship between you and the deceased.
We will retain your Personal Information for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose(s) for which it was obtained.
The criteria used to determine our retention periods include: (i) the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide the Site or Offerings to you (for example, for as long as you have an account with us or keep using the Site or Offerings); (ii) whether there is a legal or business obligation to which we are subject (for example, certain laws require us to keep records of your transactions for a certain period of time before we can delete them); or (iii) whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position (such as in regard to applicable statutes of limitations regulatory investigations, or other legal matters).
