5. Retention of Personal Information

The Company shall retain Personal Information only for the duration necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is mandated or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting, or other legal requirements). Upon the cessation of a legitimate business need to process Personal Information, the Company shall either delete or anonymize the data. In instances where deletion or anonymization is not feasible (for example, due to the storage of Personal Information in backup archives), the Company shall securely store the Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion becomes possible.

6. Protection of Personal Information

The Company has implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to safeguard the security of any Personal Information processed. However, it is important to note that the Company cannot guarantee absolute security over the internet. While the Company will make every effort to protect Personal Information, the transmission of such data to and from the Service is undertaken at the User’s own risk. Users are advised to access the Service only within a secure environment.

7. Children’s Privacy Protection

The Company recognizes the importance of safeguarding the privacy of children in the online environment. As such, the Service is not designed or intended to collect Personal Information from children under the age of thirteen. In adherence to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), the Company expressly requests that children under the age of thirteen refrain from providing any Personal Information through the Service. In the event that a child under the age of thirteen has inadvertently provided Personal Information to the Company, we urge the parent or guardian of the child to promptly contact us at the email address provided below to initiate the removal of such information.

The Company emphasizes the crucial role of parental supervision in ensuring children’s online safety. Parents are strongly encouraged to actively monitor their children’s online activities and to educate them about responsible and secure internet usage practices.

By adhering to these guidelines, the Company aims to protect the privacy and well-being of children in the online realm.

8. International Transfers of Personal Information

For Users located within the European Union, Personal Information will be transferred to and processed by the Company’s personnel situated in the United States. This transfer shall be conducted in accordance with the terms of the European Commission’s model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries, also known as the Standard Contractual Clauses, as per Decision 2004/915/EC.

9. Do Not Track Features (DNT)

While most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and applications offer a Do-Not-Track (DNT) feature or setting that allows users to signal their preference for restricting the monitoring and collection of their online browsing activities, there is currently no universally recognized and implemented technical standard for interpreting and responding to DNT signals. Consequently, the Company does not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other automated mechanisms that communicate a user’s choice to opt out of online tracking. Should a standard for online tracking be adopted in the future that the Company is obligated to follow, an updated version of this Privacy Policy will be issued to inform users of the Company’s practices in this regard.

10. Updates to this Privacy Policy

The Company reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy from time to time. The updated version will be identified by a revised “Last Updated” date, and the updated version will take effect immediately upon its publication. In the event of material changes to this Privacy Policy, the Company may provide notification either through a prominent notice of such changes or by directly sending a notification to Users. Users are encouraged to regularly review this Privacy Policy to stay informed of the Company’s practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information.
