REQUESTING, UPDATING, CORRECTING OR DELETING YOUR PERSONAL DATA

Right to Access Your Data: You can ask us for a copy of your personal data in a readily usable format. To request your personal data, you can email webmaster@certmag.com making such request. We will respond within 45 days of your request or, if reasonably necessary, we may inform you that an additional 45 days is required in which case we will give you your personal data within 90 days from your initial request. You can ask us to provide you with this information up to two times in a rolling 12-month period. When you make this request, the information provided may be limited to personal information we collected about you in the previous 12 months. As required or permitted under applicable law, please note that we may take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to information or acting on your request to exercise your rights. You can designate an authorized agent to make a request for your personal data on your behalf once you have verified your identity.

Updating or Correcting Data: You can ask us to update or correct your data in certain cases by emailing webmaster@certmag.com, particularly if it is inaccurate. Please note that we may take steps to verify your identity before acting on your request to exercise your rights to update your personal information.

Object to, or Limit or Restrict, Use of Data: You can ask us to stop using all or some of your personal data (e.g., if we have no legal right to keep using it) or to limit our use of it (e.g., if your personal data is inaccurate or unlawfully held). However, to the extent your personal data is necessary to be maintained as described by law, we may retain and use such information.

Delete Data: You can ask us to erase or delete all or some of your personal data (e.g., if it is no longer necessary to provide our services to you). Once we receive a request, we will delete the personal data (to the extent required by law) we hold about you as of the date of your request from our records and direct any service providers to do the same. We will also inform you whether we have complied with your request and to what extent your personal data will be deleted. Please note that in some cases, deletion may be accomplished through de-identification of the information.

You may access, request deletion, and correct your personal data by submitting a data request by writing to us at the address at the end of this Privacy Policy, or by emailing webmaster@certmag.com.

With respect to your communications preferences, you can unsubscribe from our marketing mailing lists by following the instructions included in any marketing email messages you receive. Please note that we may not include the opt-out information in e-mails that are transactional in nature and are not marketing-related communications (i.e., e-mails concerning your order, notification of updates to this Privacy Policy, etc.). If you have questions or concerns regarding a non-marketing e-mail, please contact us at webmaster@certmag.com.

 

CHOOSING TO EXERCISE YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS

We will not discriminate against you for exercising your privacy rights. This generally means we will not deny you services, charge different prices or rates, provide a different level of service, or suggest that you might receive a different price or level of quality for services.

 

LAWFUL BASIS FOR PROCESSING

We will only collect and process personal data about you where we have a lawful basis. Lawful bases include consent (where you have given consent), and contract (where processing is necessary for the performance of a contract or agreement), and other legitimate interests.

Where we rely on your consent to process personal data, you have the right to withdraw or decline your consent at any time and where we rely on legitimate interests, you have the right to object.

 

DATA SECURITY

We store your personal information only on servers with restricted access that are located in secured facilities, and use a variety of technologies and procedures intended to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal data, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through our Websites cannot be guaranteed and we shall have no liability to you or any third party for loss, misuse, disclosure or alteration of such information; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.

In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your personal data in our control may have been compromised, we will try to notify you. To the extent you have provided us with your email address, we may notify you by email and you agree to our use of email as a means of such notification. If you prefer for us to use another method to notify you in this situation, please contact us at webmaster@certmag.com with the alternative contact information you wish to be used.
