11. Your rights
By law, you have a number of rights when it comes to your personal data. Further information and advice about your rights can be obtained from the data protection regulator in your country.
|Rights||What does this mean?|
|The right to rectification||You are entitled to have your information corrected if it’s inaccurate or incomplete.|
|The right to erasure||This is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your information where there’s no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.|
|The right to restrict processing||You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your information. When processing is restricted, we can still store your information, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their information to be ‘blocked’ to make sure the restriction is respected in future.|
|The right to data portability||You have rights to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services. For example, if you decide to switch to a new provider, this enables you to move, copy or transfer your information easily between our IT systems and theirs safely and securely, without affecting its usability.|
|The right to object to processing||You have the right to object to certain types of processing, including processing based on our legitimate interests and processing for direct marketing (i.e. if you no longer want to be contacted with potential opportunities).|
|The right to lodge a complaint||You have the right to lodge a complaint about the way we handle or process your personal data with your national data protection regulator.|
|The right to withdraw consent||If you have given your consent to anything we do with your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that anything we have done with your personal data with your consent up to that point is unlawful). This includes your right to withdraw consent to us using your personal data for marketing purposes.|
To exercise any of the rights above, or to ask a question, contact us at email@example.com. We’ll respond as soon as we can. Generally, this will be within one month from when we receive your request but, if the request is going to take longer to deal with, we’ll come back to you and let you know.
We usually act on requests and provide information free of charge, but may charge a reasonable fee to cover our administrative costs of providing the information for:
- baseless or excessive/repeated requests, or
- further copies of the same information.
13. Children under age 13
The Offerings are not intended for use by anyone under the age of 13, nor does Triptease knowingly
collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, you may
not attempt to register for the Offerings or send any information about yourself to us, including your
name, address, telephone number, or email address. In the event that we confirm that we have collected
personal information from someone under the age of 13 without verification of parental consent, we will
delete that information promptly. If you are a parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 and believe
that we might have any information from or about such child, please contact us at the email or mailing
14. California privacy rights and disclosures
California Shine the Light Law. If you are a California resident and we disclose your personally identifiable
information to third parties for such third parties’ direct marketing purposes, California’s Shine the Light Law
(CA Civil Code Section 1798.83) allows you to request certain information from us about such disclosures. To make
a request under the Shine the Light Law, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that under California law, businesses are not required to respond to such requests more than once during any calendar year.
California Minors. At any time, you can delete or remove your posts using the same deletion or removal procedures described in Section 11 above, or otherwise through the Offerings. If you have questions about how to remove your posts or if you would like additional assistance with deletion you can contact our support team at email@example.com. Although we offer deletion capability for our Offerings, you should be aware that the removal of posts may not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that content or information posted through the Offerings.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Triptease is not a business, as defined by the CCPA, to which the law applies. If you are a California resident and have concerns about how your personal data may be processed, please contact our data support team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Triptease serves as a service provider, as defined by the CCPA, to businesses to which the CCPA applies. Such business can refer to our Data Processing Agreement for information about compliance with the CCPA, or contact our data support team at email@example.com.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We maintain a variety of appropriate technical and organizational
safeguards to protect your personal information. We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe
reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs.
Further, we have implemented reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards designed to protect personal information
about you. When you enter sensitive information (such as your password), we encrypt that information in transit using industry-standard
Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption technology. No method of transmission over the Internet, method of electronic storage or other
security methods are one hundred percent secure. Therefore, while we strive to use reasonable efforts to protect your personal information,
we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
16. International transfer of data
Where possible, we try to only process your information within the UK and European Economic Area (“EEA”). If we or our service
providers transfer personal data outside of the UK or EEA, we always require that appropriate safeguards are in place to protect
the information when it is processed. You can obtain a copy of the safeguards in place for such transfers by contacting us using
