There are two main types of cookies: session-based and persistent cookies.
- Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged in to the Site. This allows us to process your online transactions and requests and verify your identity, after you have logged in, as you move through our Site.
- Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity, which may be combined with other user information.
The different types of cookies described above can be categorized as follows:
- Necessary Cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our Site, such as to ensure security. For example, certain cookies enable you to log into secure areas of our Site. These cookies do not require your consent and cannot be switched off (although in some cases you can change your requests). You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of our Site may not work if you block these types of cookies.
- Performance Cookies. These cookies collect information about how you use our Site. For example, these cookies may collect information about the pages you visit, how long you spend on each page, the links clicked, and whether you experienced any errors. The information collected via these cookies is aggregated and therefore typically cannot be used to identify you. If you do not consent to these types of cookies we will not know when you have visited our Site and will not be able to use your visit to monitor its performance.
- Functional Cookies. These cookies are used to provide certain functionalities to you by recognizing you when you return to our Site so that we can offer you a better experience on this Site. For instance, these cookies help us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences. These cookies allow us to analyze Site usage and understand how visitors use it. These cookies recognize and collect information about the number of visitors, the pages they view, how long they view pages and how they move around our Site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our Site works, for example, by ensuring that visitors are easily finding what they are looking for. If you do not consent to these types of cookies, we will not be able to improve our Site based on information from your visit.

A. Your Rights:
We would like to make sure you are fully aware of your data protection rights under General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or other applicable data protection law. EU and UK residents are entitled to the following in respect of their personal information, subject to specific conditions and limitations as set out in GDPR:
The right to access – You have the right to request that we provide additional information about the processing of your personal information, and to obtain access to and copies of your personal information.
The right to rectification – You have the right to request that we correct any information you believe is inaccurate. You also have the right to request we complete the information you believe is incomplete.
The right to erasure – You have the right to request that we erase your personal information, such as where you have withdrawn your consent, where you object to processing based on legitimate interests due to your particular situation and we have no overriding legitimate grounds (see below), or where your personal information is unlawfully processed.
The right to restrict processing – You have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal information so that it is merely stored and not otherwise processed, under certain conditions such as:
- you contest the accuracy of the personal information (we will restrict processing until we have taken sufficient steps to correct or verify its accuracy);
- the processing is unlawful but you do not want us to erase the personal information;
- we no longer need your personal information for the purposes of the processing, but you require such personal information for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; or
- you have objected to processing justified on legitimate interest grounds (see below), pending verification as to whether we have compelling legitimate grounds to continue processing.
Where your personal information is subject to restriction, we will only process it with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
The right to object to processing based on legitimate interest basis – where we are relying upon our legitimate interests to process personal information, you have the right to object to that processing based on grounds related to your particular situation. If you object, we must stop that processing unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or we need to process the personal information for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. Where we rely upon legitimate interest as a legal basis for processing, we believe that we can demonstrate such compelling legitimate grounds, but we will consider each case on an individual basis.
The right to object to processing for direct marketing purposes – You have the right to object at any time to processing of your personal information for direct marketing, including profiling related to direct marketing.
The right to data portability – Where we are relying (as the legal basis for processing) upon your consent, or the fact that the processing is necessary to perform a contract to which you are party or to take steps at your request prior to entering a contract, and the personal information is processed by automated means, you have the right to request that we transfer the information that we have collected to another organization where this is technically feasible, or directly to you.
The right to withdraw consent – In the event your personal information is processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to withdraw consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority, in particular the authority in the place of your habitual residence, place of work or place of alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of your personal information infringes applicable law.
If you would like to exercise any of these rights (other than your right to lodge a complaint, for which you can directly contact the data protection supervisory authority), please contact us at our email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or write to us:

2. International Data Transfer
Your personal information will be transferred to countries where we have facilities or in which we engage service providers outside of your country of residence, namely the United States, which has data protection rules that are not as protective as those of your country. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your personal information. We transfer information in order to operate efficiently, to improve performance, and to create redundancies in order to protect information in the event of an outage or other problem.
Our general approach is to only retain personal information for as long as is required to satisfy the purpose for which it was collected by us or provided by you, including for the duration of the applicable statute of limitations. For example, we retain records in order to resolve queries or disputes regarding our products or Services, or bring or defend claims which we think may arise from time to time during the relevant statute of limitations. In certain cases, legal or regulatory obligations require us to retain specific records for a set period of time, including following the termination of any contract with you or your employer (e.g., under applicable tax law).
