Privacy Policy (cont.) IV

1.1            Right to object: You shall have the right granted by the EU legislator to object on grounds relating to your particular situation at any time to processing of personal data concerning you, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

1.1.1       We shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.


1.1.2       If we process personal data for direct marketing purposes, you shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to us to the processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.


1.1.3       In addition, you have the right, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning you by us for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.


1.2            Automated individual decision-making, including profiling: You shall have the right granted by the EU legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you, or similarly significantly affects you, as long as the decision (1) is not necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between you and us, or (2) is not authorised by EU or a Member State law to which we are subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on your explicit consent.


If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between you and us, or (2) it is based on your explicit consent, we shall implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on our part, to express your point of view and contest the decision.


1.3            Right to withdraw data protection consent: You shall have the right granted by the EU legislator to withdraw your consent to processing of your personal data at any time. You may initiate request with us at [email protected] to exercise any of the above mentioned rights. We shall review your request and, in our own discretion, honour your request, if deemed necessary by us, within reasonable time. 


2.               Compliance with CalOPPA


2.1            We are also committed to complying with the California Online Privacy Protection Act (“CalOPPA”) which requires commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law requires any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting ‘personally identifiable information’ from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. As required under CalOPPA, we agree to the following:


·        Users can visit our site anonymously.

·        Our Privacy Policy link includes the word ‘Privacy’ and can easily be found on the page specified above.
