For EEA Users, Effective May 25, 2018
If you are an individual in the European Economic Area (EEA), we comply with the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC framework as set forward by the European Union regarding the collection, use and retention of personal data from European union member countries and Switzerland. We collect and process information only where we have legal basis for doing so under applicable EU laws. The legal bases depend on the services you use and how you use them. This means we collect and use your information only where:
- We need it to provide you services, including to operate the services, provide user support and personalized features and to protect the safety and security of these;
- It satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote the services and to protect our legal rights and interests;
- You give us consent to do so for a specific purpose; or
- We need to process your data to comply with a legal obligation.
If you have consented to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place. Where we are using your information because we or a third party have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use, though, in some cases, this may mean no longer using the services.
