Why you are required to provide personal data
In general, your provision of any personal data or granting of consent to a processing activity is entirely voluntary. However, there are certain circumstances in which Addoptify cannot take action without processing certain personal data, for example to process your orders, or to assist you with use of our Services, or to provide access to a web offering or newsletter. In these cases, it will not be possible for Addoptify to provide what you request without the relevant personal information. In some circumstances, Addoptify may need to terminate your ability to use the Services without access to your personal data. Addoptify intends to notify you of whether such communication or data sharing is deemed mandatory and the impact of not sharing.
Sharing of your personal data
Addoptify is a global organisation with business processes, management structures and technical systems that cross borders.
In some cases we use suppliers located in various countries to collect, use, analyse, and otherwise process information on our behalf. We may also use subcontractors which provide services to us in connection with providing our Services to you. We put in place contractual safeguards for the protection of your personal data with such suppliers, including obligations for processing in line with applicable legal requirements.
Where you post information to our wikis, forums, blogs, message boards, chat rooms, websites or other social networking environments, your information will be shared with audiences within those platforms.
We may share your personal data based on a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, or situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person. We may use your personal data as evidence in litigation in which we are involved, to protect the rights or safety of any person or entity, to respond to a judicial process or valid government inquiry or as otherwise required by law.
Where we process personal data
If you choose to provide us with information, including personal data, you understand that we are storing this and/or transferring it to a service provider with sites in the European Union and other locations. Addoptify complies with applicable law when transferring your personal information outside of the country where the information is collected.
How long we retain your personal data
The duration of processing of your personal data depends on the legal basis for the processing.
Addoptify’s policy is to retain personal data no longer than (a) is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the personal data is processed, (b) if processing is based on consent, until you withdraw your consent, or (c) if processing is based on a legitimate interest of Addoptify, until you object to such processing.
However, we will store personal data for a longer period where (a) we are required by law to retain your personal data or (b) your personal data is required for Addoptify to assert or defend against legal claims. In this event, we will retain your personal data until the end of the relevant retention period or until the claims in question have been settled. If you require more details with respect to the retention periods, please contact [email protected] .
Your rights as a data subject
You can contact us directly (as set forth below) to update your personal data.
Access, correction, deletion of personal data: You can request at any time the personal data Addoptify holds about you and the correction or deletion of such personal data. Addoptify can only delete your personal data if there is no statutory obligation or prevailing right of Addoptify to retain it. In addition, if you request deletion of your personal data you will not be able to continue to use any Addoptify Services that require the use of your personal data.
Request personal data in a portable format: If Addoptify uses your personal data based on your consent or to perform a contract with you, you may further request from Addoptify a copy of the personal data in a portable format that you have provided to Addoptify and where processing is carried out by automated means.
Restriction of processing and right to object: You can also request that Addoptify restrict (without deleting) further processing of your personal data: (i) if you state that your personal data is incorrect, for as long as we need to verify the accuracy of the personal data, (ii) if there is no legal basis for Addoptify to process your personal data and you demand that Addoptify restricts your personal data from further processing instead of deleting it, (iii) if Addoptify no longer needs your personal data but you as data subject claim that you require Addoptify to retain such data in order to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim, or (iv) where Addoptify processes your personal data on the basis of its legitimate interest as further detailed in Section II and you object to the processing of your personal data for as long as it is required to review whether Addoptify has a prevailing interest or legal obligation to process your personal data.
Please send any such requests to contact: [email protected]
