The personal data that we collect when you visit our Sites or use our Services may include the following:
We collect personal data directly from you, automatically through your use of our Sites and Services, or from third parties. For example, we collect personal data:
Certain laws, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation, require that we inform you of the legal bases for our processing of your personal data. Accordingly, we collect and use your personal data for the purposes described below and on the following lawful bases:
Purpose for using personal data. While the purposes for which we may process personal data will vary depending upon the circumstances, in general we use personal data for the purposes set forth below. Where GDPR or other relevant laws apply, we have set forth the legal bases for such processing (see above for further explanation of our legal bases) in parenthesis.
We do not share your personal data other than as described in this paragraph:
In order to protect your personal data we have implemented reasonable, commercially acceptable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the personal data we store, in order to protect it from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure. Your personal data is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of people, who have special access rights and are required to keep the personal data confidential.
Please keep in mind that no website or internet transmission is completely secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal data safe, such as closing your web browser when finished using the Sites.

We will generally retain the personal data we processed through our Sites and Services for as long as it is required for purposes for which the data were collected. Unless we inform you otherwise, this will usually be the period of 3 years after the last interaction with you plus the length of any applicable statutory retention period following such activity.
Your personal data may be transferred to -and maintained on- computers located outside of your state, province, country or governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction. If you are located outside the USA, please note that the personal data you provide (as described above under "What Personal Data Do We Collect") will be transferred to the USA, where the level of data protection may not be equivalent to the level of protection applicable at your location.
Where we are legally required to do so, transfers of personal data to parties outside the EU/EEA may be made pursuant to the European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses or other legally acceptable mechanisms that ensure an adequate level of protection. Where applicable, you are entitled to receive a copy of the relevant contract (such as Standard Contractual Clauses or Binding Corporate Rules) showing that appropriate safeguards have been taken to protect your personal data during such transfer.

Importantly, this section also does not apply to our handling of customer data (including any personal information contained therein) that is uploaded to the Site or that is provided as part of the Service, where we are acting as a service provider or processor (depending on applicable privacy law).
