Right to access your Personal Data. Visitors and Users have the right to find out whether we process their Personal Data, what categories of Personal Data we process about them, the purposes of the processing, the categories of third parties to whom we may disclose the Personal Data of Visitors and Users, the storage period of their Personal Data or the criteria for determining it by contacting us at email@example.com.

We will delete any Usage Data collected for technical purposes no later than twelve (12) months after it has been collected.
After the expiry of the storage period, we shall delete Personal Data.

These contractors may access the Personal Data or process it on our behalf as part of their services to us. We limit the information provided to our service providers to only that which is reasonably necessary to perform their functions.
We may need to transfer your Personal Data to third parties who provide these services. If your Personal Data is transferred outside the European Economic Area («EEA»), we require such third parties to maintain appropriate security measures.
We ensure that we hold data processing agreements with our service providers that ensure compliance with the GDPR and our contracts with them which require the privacy of Personal Data. All data transfers within and outside the EEA are carried out under these data processing agreements. All data transfers are carried out under the strictest security rules.

We care about the security of your Personal Data. We adhere to generally accepted industry standards to protect the data transmitted to us, both during transmission and after it is received. We take technical, physical, and administrative security measures to ensure that your Personal Data is adequately protected. When we process your data, we also ensure that your data is protected against unauthorized access, loss, manipulation, falsification, destruction, or unauthorized disclosure. This is achieved through appropriate administrative, technical, and physical measures.
