If you wish to exercise any of these rights, you may contact Rick Carback, who we have designated as the Company’s Data Protection Officer under the GDPR (as defined below), at [email protected] In your request, please make clear: (i) what personal information is concerned; and (ii) which of the above rights you would like to enforce. For your protection, we may only implement requests with respect to the personal information associated with the particular email address that you use to send us your request, and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note, certain applicable laws may require that we maintain a record of certain personal information notwithstanding your wish to exercise these rights, such as financial information for purposes of complying with anti-money laundering laws or sanctions laws. Whenever possible, we will disclose any conflicts between such laws and your request to exercise your rights under this section and work with you to reach a resolution in compliance with applicable laws.
We take your privacy very seriously and work hard to protect the Company and you from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we collect and store. Your personal information will be stored on a series of servers which have implemented industry standard security measures to prevent accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure and/or access. We encrypt the Site using SSL encryption technology and all traffic on the Site is forced to use SSL. We review all information practices on a regular basis, and we restrict access to information on a need-to-know basis for all employees and other Company service providers who are subject to confidentiality obligations and are subject to termination or disciplinary action, including legal action, should such employees or service providers breach these obligations. While two factor authentication is not presently required to access the Site and use our services, we reserve the right to require use of two factor authentication in the future. By submitting to us personal information, you give your express consent to the transfer and storage of your personal information as described in this Policy.
All collection, processing and storing of personal data is performed in accordance with the Regulations (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27th April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, known as the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), and the Company’s processing will take place in accordance with the GDPR.

Your information, including personal information that we collect from you, may be transferred to, stored at and processed by us and our affiliates and other third parties outside the country in which you reside, including, but not limited to the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world. By using our Site, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy. One such step we will take to ensure the security of your personal information is to enter into specific contract clauses approved by the European Commission which ensure your personal information is given the same protection it has in Europe.
We will only retain your personal information for as long as is reasonably required for you to use the Site and our services (and in the event you have created an account with us, until you close such account), unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. For instance, certain anti-money laundering requirements may require that we retain certain financial information for five or more years.
