You have the following rights:
We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
Access to Data Controlled by our Customers. Synk.to has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal information is contained within the Custom User Fields processed by our Service. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete personal information provided by our users should direct their request to the Customer directly.
We will retain personal information we process on behalf of our Customers for as long as needed to provide our Services or for an indefinite time to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent abuse, and enforce our agreements. If required by law, we will delete personal information by erasing it from our database.
Synk.to operates in countries outside the EEA, the UK, and Switzerland, such as in the United States of America and may utilize data processors and sub-processors located in third countries. If you are located in the EEA, the UK, or Switzerland, this means that we may transfer personal information outside of your country. Such transfers are made using appropriate safeguards and supplementary measures, such as the EU Standard Contractual Clauses for Controller-to-Controller and Controller-to-Processor Transfers (“Safeguards”). If you would wish to view such Safeguards, contact us at [email protected].
We believe it is important to provide added protection for children online. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children to observe, participate in and/or monitor and guide their online activity. The Site and/or the Services are not intended for use by anyone under the age of 16, nor does Synk.to knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 16. If you are under 16, you may not attempt to register for the Services or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. In the event that we confirm that we have collected personal information from someone under the age of 16 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information promptly. If you are a parent or legal guardian of a child under 16 and believe that we might have any information from or about such child, please contact us.
Notice of Breach of Security
If a security breach causes an unauthorized intrusion into our system that materially affects you or your Subscribers, then Synk.to will notify you as soon as possible and later report the action we took in response.
Safeguarding Your Information
We take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the personal information. Despite these efforts to store personal information collected on and through the Site and/or the Services and otherwise by us in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee the security of personal information during its transmission or its storage on our systems. Further, while we attempt to ensure the integrity and security of personal information, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-parties such as so-called hackers from illegally obtaining access to personal information. We do not warrant or represent that personal information about you will be protected against, loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties.
Our credit card processing vendor uses security measures to protect your information both during the transaction and after it is complete. If you have any questions about the security of your Personal Information, you may contact us by email at [email protected].
If you are a person located in the European Economic Area, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. We will normally collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate business interests. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you.
If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to enter into a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information). Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate business interests, we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate business interests are.
