Privacy Shield Framework
The Information We Collect
We use your personally identifiable information to provide you with the information or content that you have requested, and, in some cases, to contact you about our programs, products, features or services. If you no longer wish to receive press releases or any other type of information from us, you may send us an email through our “Contact Us” link or use our E-mail Alert form to change your preferences; or follow the “unsubscribe” link provided in the e-mail that you receive.
We use non-identifying information collected on our Web site in the aggregate to better understand your use of the Web site and to enhance your enjoyment and experience. For example, we may use the information to improve the design and content of our Web site or to analyze the programs and services that we offer.
We may provide access to your personally identifiable information when legally required to do so, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Web site, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights, or to protect the rights and safety of visitors to this Web site or the public. In those instances, the information is provided only for that limited purpose.
Cookies & Web Beacons
To enhance your online experience, we may use “cookies” or similar technologies. Cookies are text files placed in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. Cookies do not contain personally identifiable information; however, once you choose to furnish a site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.
We, our third party service providers, advertiser or our partners may also use “web beacons” or 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 a web page. For example, web beacons may be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor viewing that page.
Access and/or Modification of your Information
If you visit our Web site and volunteer personally identifiable information, you may modify, update or delete such information by sending us an e-mail at [email protected] You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information 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 our Web Site.
If you are a resident of the European Union or Switzerland, you can object to processing of your personal information, ask us to restrict processing of your personal information or request portability of your personal information. To exercise these rights email [email protected]
You can opt out of receiving promotional emails from us by emailing [email protected] or unsubscribing from our marketing emails. If you choose to no longer receive marketing information, we may still communicate with you regarding such things as your security updates, product functionality, responses to service requests, or other transactional, non-marketing/administrative related purposes.
If we have collected and process your personal information 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 processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection and use of your personal information. 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 laws. To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you account access or making corrections to your personal information.
We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the personally identifiable information that we collect. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, so you do so at your own risk.
We operate globally so it is necessary to transfer your information internationally. In particular, your information will likely be transferred to and processed in the United States and/or Europe. When transferring data from the European Union, the European Economic Area, and Switzerland, Kapta relies upon a variety of legal mechanisms, including contracts with our users. Kapta complies with the EU-U.S. and Swiss–U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union, the European Economic Area, and Switzerland to the United States. Kapta may be subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and/or the Department of Transportation.
We may share Information with third-party service providers (e.g., email service providers, data storage and processing facilities) to let them perform business functions for us or on our behalf. We do not permit our service providers to use Personal Information that we share with them for their marketing purposes or for any other purpose than in connection with the services they provide to us. Additional information about the sub-processors we use to support delivery of our Services is set forth at on the Kapta Data Processing Addendum on the Kapta website (https://kapta.com/data-processing-addendum/). In cases of onward transfer to third parties of data of EU and Swiss individuals received pursuant to the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks (see below), Kapta is potentially liable.
To Comply with Laws or Enforce our Rights
We may also disclose Information we receive if required 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 Personal Information in response to a lawful request by public authorities in efforts to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. 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 issues, we may disclose Personal Information to relevant parties.
Independent Recourse Mechanism
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, Kapta commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. EU and Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Shield policy should first contact us at: [email protected]
