Right to access, correct, and delete data, and the right to object to data processing
Our customers have the right to access, correct, and delete personal data relating to them and to object to the processing of such data by addressing a written request at any time. The company makes every effort to put in place suitable precautions to safeguard the security and privacy of personal data and prevent it from being altered, corrupted, destroyed, or accessed by unauthorized third parties. However, the company does not control each and every risk related to the use of the Internet, and therefore warns the site's users of the potential risks involved in the functioning and use of the Internet. The site may include links to other web sites or other internet sources. As the company cannot control these web sites and external sources, it cannot be held responsible for the provision or display of these web sites and external sources and may not be held liable for the content, advertising, products, services, or any other material available on or from these web sites or external sources.
Management of personal data
You can view or edit your personal data online for many of our services. You can also make choices about our collection and use of your data. How you can access or control your personal data will depend on which services you use. You can choose whether you wish to receive promotional communications from our store by email, SMS, physical mail, or telephone. If you receive promotional email or SMS messages from us and would like to opt out, you can do so by following the directions in that message. You can also make choices about the receipt of promotional email, telephone calls, and postal mail by visiting and signing into the Company Promotional Communications Manager, which allows you to update contact information, manage contact preferences, opt out of email subscriptions, and choose whether to share your contact information with our partners. These choices do not apply to mandatory service communications that are part of certain store services.
The Data We Gather
Our store collects data to operate effectively and provide you with the best experience with our services. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you create a personal account. We get some of it by recording how you interact with our services, for example, by using technologies like cookies and receiving error reports or usage data from software running on your device. We also obtain data from third parties (including other companies). For example, we supplement the data we collect by purchasing demographic data from other companies. We also use third-party services to help us determine your location based on your IP address in order to tailor certain services to your location. The data we collect depends on the services and features you use.
As part of our normal data collection process on our websites, the website may deposit "cookies" in your device in order to identify you and/or as a means of tracking the validity of sessions as well as enhancing your browsing experience.

- "Persistent" cookies, which allow us to offer you tailored content on our website by helping us remember any personal information that you have provided on previous visits to our website, the number of times you've visited our website, and your preferences.

How We Use Your InformationOur store uses the data we collect for three basic purposes: to operate our business and provide (including improving and personalizing) the services we offer; to send communications, including promotional communications; and to display advertising. In carrying out these purposes, we combine the data we collect through the various store services you use to give you a more seamless, consistent, and personalized experience. However, to enhance privacy, we have built in technological and procedural safeguards designed to prevent certain data combinations. For example, we store the data we collect from you when you are unauthenticated (not signed in) separately from any account information that directly identifies you, such as your name, email address, or phone number.
Sharing Your Information
We share your personal data with your consent or as necessary to complete any transaction or provide any service you have requested or authorized. For example, we share your content with third parties when you tell us to do so. When you provide payment data to make a purchase, we will share payment data with banks and other entities that process payment transactions or provide other financial services, as well as for fraud prevention and credit risk reduction. In addition, we share personal data among our controlled affiliates and subsidiaries. We also share personal data with vendors or agents working on our behalf for the purposes described in this statement. For example, companies we’ve hired to provide customer service support or assist in protecting and securing our systems and services may need access to personal data in order to provide those functions. In such cases, these companies must abide by our data privacy and security requirements and are not allowed to use personal data they receive from us for any other purpose. We may also disclose personal data as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets.
We take steps to ensure that the personal information that you provide is retained for only as long as it is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. After this period it will be deleted or in some cases anonymized unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
