Cookies do not contain PII; however, once you choose to furnish a site with PII, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.
We, our third-party service providers, advertisers, or partners may also use “web beacons,” clear “.gifs,” or similar technologies, which are small pieces of code placed on a web page, to monitor the behavior and collect data about the visitors viewing the Website. For example, web beacons may be used to count the users who visit the Website or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor viewing the Website.
4. Access to and Modification of PII
If you visit our Website and volunteer PII, you may modify, update or delete such information by sending us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify PII in our databases. In addition, please be aware that your ability to opt out from receiving marketing and promotional materials does not change our right to contact you regarding your use of the Website or our Services.
You can opt out of receiving promotional emails from us by emailing [email@example.com] or unsubscribing from our marketing emails. If you choose to no longer receive marketing information, we may still communicate with you regarding security updates, product functionality, responses to service requests, or other transactional, non-marketing-related purposes.
If we have collected and processed your PII with your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect the processing of your PII conducted pursuant to lawful processing grounds other than consent.
You have the right to contact a data protection authority about our collection and use of your PII. For more information, please contact your local data protection authority.
We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with Applicable Data Protection Law(s). To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you account access or making corrections to your PII.
5. Data Security
We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the PII we collect. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we do not warrant or represent the security of any information (PII or otherwise) that you transmit to us. By using our Services, you understand, acknowledge and agree that you transfer data to us at your own risk.
6. International Transfer
We operate globally, and so it may be necessary to transfer your PII internationally. In general, your PII will likely be transferred to and processed in the United States and/or Europe. When transferring data from Europe, Kapta relies upon a variety of legal mechanisms, including contracts with our users as well as documents issued by regulatory authorities.
7. Compliance with Laws and Enforcing our Rights
We may be required to disclose PII by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process, or in response to a government request. We also may be required to disclose PII in response to a lawful request by law enforcement or public authorities in an effort to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
We may disclose PII to relevant parties to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of Kapta or third parties, including enforcing contracts or policies, or in connection with investigating and preventing fraud or security concerns.
If a dispute remains unresolved following the attempts for resolution in the preceding paragraph, you and Kapta agree to commit to mediation by a mediator appointed by JAMS, an alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States. The services of JAMS are provided at no cost to you.
