Parents or legal guardians may contact us to ask if we have collected their childs personal account information, to review that information, if any, and request that PBS stop collecting this information and have it deleted. Such requests are subject to PBS verifying to our satisfaction that the requester is in fact the childs parent or legal guardian.

In this Section 8, we have summarised the rights that you have under data protection law. Some of the rights are complex, and not all of the details have been included in our summaries. Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of these rights.

Your principal rights under data protection law are:

the right to complain to a supervisory authority; and

You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your personal data and, where we do, access to the personal data, together with certain additional information. That additional information includes details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your personal data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee.

You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.

In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your personal data without undue delay. Those circumstances include: the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to consent-based processing; you object to the processing under certain rules of applicable data protection law; the processing is for direct marketing purposes; and the personal data have been unlawfully processed. However, there are exclusions of the right to erasure. The general exclusions include where processing is necessary: for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue to store your personal data. However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.

You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal data for this purpose.

You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes on grounds relating to your particular situation, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal data is:

that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract, and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.

To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.

You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by written notice to us or email todata..uk

In respect of competition entry and reader offers data, we may not act as a data controller; instead, we may act as a data processor.

Insofar as we act as a data processor rather than a data controller, this policy shall not apply. Our legal obligations as a data processor are instead set out in the contract between us and the relevant data controller.

Instagram Help Center

In September 2012, we announced that Instagram had been acquired by Facebook. We knew that by teaming up with Facebook, we could build a better Instagram for you. Since then, weve been collaborating with Facebooks team on ways to do just that. As part of our new collaboration, weve learned that by being able to share insights and information with each other, we can build better experiences for our users.

Were updating our Privacy Policy to highlight this new collaboration, but we want to make sure you understand that you still have control over who sees your photos. You still get to choose who can see your Instagram photos, and you still get to choose whether you post your photos on Facebook. So while were looking forward to working closely with Facebook to build better experiences, we arent changing the core features of the app that youve come to know and love.

Our new Privacy Policy is effective on January 19, 2013. To learn about how we treat information collected prior to January 19, 2013, pleaseclick here.

Welcome to Instagram (Instagram, we, us or our). Instagram provides a fast, beautiful and fun way for you to share media through our content-sharing platform. Just snap a photo, choose a filter to transform the look and feel, add comments (if you like) and share!

Our Privacy Policy explains how we and some of the companies we work with collect, use, share and protect information in relation to our mobile services, web site, and any software provided on or in connection with Instagram services (collectively, the

), and your choices about the collection and use of your information.

By using our Service you understand and agree that we are providing a platform for you to post content, including photos, comments and other materials (

), to the Service and to share User Content publicly. This means that other Users may search for, see, use, or share any of your User Content that you make publicly available through the Service, consistent with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use (which can be found at

Our Policy applies to all visitors, users, and others who access the Service (

We collect the following types of information.

Information you provide us directly:

Your username, password and e-mail address when you register for an Instagram account.

Profile information that you provide for your user profile (e.g., first and last name, picture, phone number). This information allows us to help you or others be found on Instagram.

User Content (e.g., photos, comments, and other materials) that you post to the Service.

Communications between you and Instagram. For example, we may send you Service-related emails (e.g., account verification, changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). Note that you may not opt out of Service-related e-mails.

If you choose, you can use our Find friends feature to locate other people with Instagram accounts either through (i) your contacts list, (ii) third-party social media sites or (iii) through a search of names and usernames on Instagram.

If you choose to find your friends through (i) your devices contacts list, then Instagram will access your contacts list to determine whether or not someone associated with your contact is using Instagram.

If you choose to find your friends through a (ii) third-party social media site, then you will be prompted to set up a link to the third-party service and you understand that any information that such service may provide to us will be governed by this Privacy Policy.

If you choose to find your friends (iii) through a search of names or usernames on Instagram then simply type a name to search and we will perform a search on our Service.

Note about Invite Friends feature:

If you choose to invite someone to the Service through our Invite friends feature, you may select a person directly from the contacts list on your device and send a text or email from your personal account. You understand and agree that you are responsible for any charges that apply to communications sent from your device, and because this invitation is coming directly from your personal account, Instagram does not have access to or control this communication.

We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent by your device or our Service, including the web pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving the Service. We collect and use this analytics information with analytics information from other Users so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual User.

When you visit the Service, we may use cookies and similar technologies like pixels, web beacons, and local storage to collect information about how you use Instagram and provide features to you.

We may ask advertisers or other partners to serve ads or services to your devices, which may use cookies or similar technologies placed by us or the third party.

More information is available in ourAbout Cookiessection

Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you make a request to access (i.e., visit) a web page or app. It can also be provided when the content of the webpage or app is downloaded to your browser or device.

When you use our Service, our servers automatically record certain log file information, including your web request, Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. We may also collect similar information from emails sent to our Users which then help us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Service.

When you use a mobile device like a tablet or phone to access our Service, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more device identifiers. Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the devices operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by Instagram.

A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third party partner about how you browse and use the Service and may help us or others provide reports or personalized content and ads. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.

Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with User Content. For example, Metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of User Content was collected and how that content is formatted.

Users can add or may have Metadata added to their User Content including a hashtag (e.g., to mark keywords when you post a photo), geotag (e.g., to mark your location to a photo), comments or other data. This makes your User Content more searchable by others and more interactive. If you geotag your photo or tag your photo using others APIs then, your latitude and longitude will be stored with the photo and searchable (e.g., through a location or map feature) if your photo is made public by you in accordance with your privacy settings.

In addition to some of the specific uses of information we describe in this Privacy Policy, we may use information that we receive to:

help you efficiently access your information after you sign in

remember information so you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Service;

provide personalized content and information to you and others, which could include online ads or other forms of marketing

provide, improve, test, and monitor the effectiveness of our Service

develop and test new products and features

monitor metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns

diagnose or fix technology problems

automatically update the Instagram application on your device

Instagram or other Users may run contests, special offers or other events or activities (Events) on the Service. If you do not want to participate in an Event, do not use the particular Metadata (i.e. hashtag or geotag) associated with that Event.

This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards.

If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction.

By registering for and using the Service you consent to the transfer of information to the U.S. or to any other country in which Instagram, its Affiliates or Service Providers maintain facilities and the use and disclosure of information about you as described in this Privacy Policy.

We use commercially reasonable safeguards to help keep the information collected through the Service secure and take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. However, Instagram cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to Instagram or guarantee that information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.

Please do your part to help us.

In this case, Schneider Electric will inform individuals of Schneider Electric who are impacted of material changes in this Privacy Statement. Schneider Electric will post new versions on relevant internal and external websites.

The main changes and reasons for changes between the current version of this Privacy Statement and the previous version of 13 May 2013 are the following:

– consistent wording across Schneider Electric websites

Schneider Electric strongly supports the fundamental rights to privacy and data protection as well as compliance with national and international privacy laws.

This Privacy Statement describes how Schneider Electric processes and protects the personal information of individuals who use our websites and other digital content as well as in the context of our offline business activities.

Schneider Electric has adopted an internal Global Data Privacy Policy which is applicable to all our subsidiaries for the collection, processing, use, dissemination, transfer, and storage of personal information. It imposes common rules for all of our subsidiaries of all countries, and aims at ensuring a high level of protection of personal information within Schneider Electric.

Schneider Electric has also established this Privacy Statement as an external publication of our Binding Corporate Rules (BCR), approved by data protection supervisory authorities of the European Union in November 2012 for the processing of personal information from the EEA as a data controller. In Schneider Electrics Binding Corporate Rules, we respect and take into account the major principles of EU data protection rules as our Head Office is located in the European Union.

This Privacy Statement applies to all Schneider Electric subsidiaries and digital content, unless a specific privacy statement or privacy notice has been released to supplement it or to replace it. You should check the privacy statements made available to you on all digital content.

Schneider Electric is a global company, with legal entities, business processes, management organizations, and a system infrastructure that crosses borders. This Privacy Statement applies to all Schneider Electric data processing activities run by our wholly owned subsidiaries, including product and service offerings and digital content (e.g. websites, applications, tutorials, e-training, newsletters, advertising, communication). It may, however, be supplemented by a more specific privacy notice/statement/policy (statement) or even superseded by another statement specific to a particular Schneider Electric program, product, service, content or entity. It is important that you read the statements made available to you for your full information.

The data controllers of the data processing activities are the Schneider Electric subsidiaries who have determined the data processing means and purposes. They may vary on a case by case basis.

How to write a Privacy Policy

Creating and running a professional website is a lot of work. Whether it is a site used to sell products or services or one that caters to members or followers only, designing the site and creating content that keeps your visitors returning requires considerable commitment and effort. While the Internet provides an excellent venue for doing business, providing information and facilitating communication, it also creates numerous privacy concerns for those that visit websites.

The Internet provides access to almost any type of product, service or information imaginable, and the bounds of the Web are virtually limitless. However, this broad type of access also enables hackers, immoral data miners and other unscrupulous groups or persons to potentially abuse privacy or otherwise harm Web users. Consequently, many users are wary when visiting sites about the type of information they wish to share.

If yours is like many other websites, you probably collect some type(s) of data when a visitor reaches your site. Whether it be the collection of biographical, contact or location information or use the of tracking software to make a site easier to use, there are few sites these days that dont collect at least minimal amounts of data from visitors. If your website does collect data from visitors, chances are good that you will be required to post policies regarding the collection of data and its dissemination. In most cases, you can satisfy requirements for this information through the posting of Cookie and Privacy policies.

If you run a website, you may already know what a cookie is and how it functions. Just in case you dont know much about cookies, though, here is a brief overview:

A cookie (sometimes also referred to as a browser cookie, HTTP cookie, Internet cookie or Web cookie) is a small file sent from a Web server to your computer whenever you visit a website.) If you return to the website later, your Web browser sends the small file to the server to notify the website of any previous activity you engaged in on the site. Once you return to a website, the server can retrieve the cookie file from local computer to assist in expediting certain functions such as logging in and retrieving account or user data.

Cookies can serve many useful purposes, such as remembering items you had in a shopping cart, logging visited pages on the site and remembering login details so you dont have to enter them every time you visit the website. The most common types of cookies are authentication cookies, which servers use to determine whether a user is logged into a site or not.

Cookies cannot contain viruses nor install spyware or malware on your computer. However, companies can use cookies to track long-term browsing history and store information on the types of products or information viewed. Over a period of time, aggregate information of this type can help site owners push targeted products or information to your browser during visits. While this practice may seem helpful (and it certainly can be,) it may also pose cause for concern for users that wish to keep their browsing or search habits private.

What are Cookie and Privacy Policies?

If your site collects contact or location information, privacy policies regarding those types of data are relatively self-explanatory and easy to understand. Simply put, if your site collects details such as a users name, address, email address, or other biographical or location data, a privacy policy outlines the types of information collected, why it is needed, how it used and how it is disseminated (or provided to other parties.)

Only a few years ago, a Privacy Policy was the only type required by most governmental and online watch groups. However, in recent years agencies and governments have listened to constituents and users by taking privacy requirements even a step further to now include requirements for Cookie Policies. Similar to those for privacies, Cookie Policies must outline the types of data stored on and retrieved from your computer and in what matter the server and website uses the information.

Not all jurisdictions require the posting of Privacy or Cookie Policies; however, many do and more and more governments and agencies are requiring their use every year. Even if you dont live in a country or jurisdiction that requires the posting of Cookie or Privacy Policies, though, you may be required to post such documents on your site if it receives visitors from areas that do enforce such requirements.

For instance, if you live in a country that has no such laws requiring the posting of a privacy policy, you will be required to publish and display anyway if you serve customers, members or visitors from countries such as those within the European Union (which does require the posting of Privacy Policies on websites.) Failure to do so may result in restrictions on your ability to serve traffic to visitors from within European countries.

Certain legal requirements notwithstanding, though, it is still a very good idea to post Cookie and Privacy Policies on any website you may operate or own. The reasons for this are very simple – posting such policies on your site promotes trust and respect for your website. Visitors always feel more secure when they know how sites and companies handle their personal data and information. Simply put, explaining how your site handles privacy concerns and data gives visitors more peace of mind.

Legal Requirements for Cookie and Privacy Policies

As mentioned above, there are still many countries, locales and jurisdictions that have no laws or requirements regarding the posting of Cookie and Privacy Policies on websites. Nevertheless, many prominent governments around the globe do have such laws, and the trend seems to indicate that more and more such laws will only become more prevalent.

While the United States Government does not have a Federal law regarding Cookie or Privacy Policies on websites, the State of California does have such a statute on the books and enforces it vigorously. To a lesser extent, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, Tennessee and Utah also have laws regarding privacy policies – albeit not nearly as comprehensive as the one passed in California. Likewise, member countries of European Union have strict laws regarding the collection and use of personal information or computer data obtained from website visitors. Finally, many other countries are considering legislation similar that enacted in Europe and the United States to protect the privacy of citizens that use the Internet.

If your website sells to customers or accepts visitors from countries that do have laws regarding the posting of Cookie or Privacy Policies, you will be required to comply or risk losing access to visitors from those areas. In some cases, governments may impose fines or other penalties on you or your website for violations even if you have no physical presence or branch in those jurisdictions. Many recent international court decisions provide a lot of leniency and a wide berth for governments to protect their citizens from offending websites or Internet providers.

Even if governments cannot penalize a site owner directly, they may be able to penalize Internet Service Providers, telecommunications companies or others that assist in the hosting or support of a non-complying website. Since most high traffic websites are hosted in countries with online privacy laws, chances are good that your Internet Service Provider will close your site if you fail to comply with Cookie and Privacy Policies laws with your site.

Although the language used in various Cookie and Privacy Policy laws differs a bit in every jurisdiction, the essential elements of all of the laws are similar – explain the type of date or information you collect, how you collect it and how you intend to use it. With that in mind, it is possible to create effective Cookie and Privacy Policies that meet the legal requirements not only in Europe and the United States, but in other jurisdictions as well. To that end, effective and legal Cookie and Privacy Policies must contain the following information and/or disclosures:

Notice – Your websites Privacy Policy must be posted in a conspicuous, easy-to-find location. The easiest way to achieve this is to post a link to your sites Privacy Policy on the home page. Additionally, the policy must be available for review by a visitor before he/she submits any type information on your website or any data is collected. The policy must also state in relatively easy-to-understand language what types of data or information your site collects. The Privacy Policy must also explain the consequences, if any, when a user or visitor refuses to provide data or information on the website. The Privacy Policy must also identify the effective date for current or proposed revisions.

Disclosure – The Privacy Policy must list all sites, companies and organizations that will collect or receive the data or information. In the policy, you must list the legal name of the entities, their addresses and contact information. This applies to any third party companies to which the data or information may be transferred, sold or otherwise disseminated. If data or information will be kept offsite with a third party, the name and contact information of the outside party must be included as well.

Purpose – Your site Privacy Policy must also explain in detail why you collect certain data and how it is used. The policy must disclose all applicable reasons and purposes for the required data with regard to the user visiting or using the website. Data must not be used for purposes or reasons other than those defined in the Privacy Policy.

Consent – The Privacy Policy must contain language that ensures visitors that their data or information will not be used, sold, transferred or otherwise disclosed without their prior consent. Users or visitors must also be able to opt-out or discontinue use of the website and revoke consent for the use or dissemination of data or identifiable information. The Policy must also describe the steps needed for users to opt-out or provide a link to a third-party site that allows them do so.

Security – A Privacy Policy must address data-security concerns of users or visitor of the website. The policy must include language that expresses the sites commitment to safeguarding data and explain the steps used to ensure identifiable data or information is safeguarded at all times. If the site discloses identifiable data or information to third parties, the Privacy Policy must also address how such parties handle, store and maintain such data. The Privacy Policy should also include language that stresses the fact that the site or organization makes third parties aware of their security concerns and makes all reasonable attempts to ensure they follow proper security practices as outlined in the Privacy Policy.

Access – Your websites Privacy Policy must include language that ensures site members, users or visitors access to their data and online information. The policy must also spell out steps the user can take to change or edit or their information as needed, or delete or remove information if they choose to do so.

Accountability – The Privacy Policy must include information that informs users or visitors of the steps they can take to correct inaccuracies in their personal information. Furthermore, the policy should list contact details of the organization or person responsible for providing oversight for the policy and its strict implementation. For instance, if your site is a member of an online privacy alliance or group that monitors compliance, the policy should state as much and provide contact details for the organization. If your site uses an in-house staff member for such tasks (not really recommended, as third-party enforcement programs are more trusted and respected,) you must list the name, email address, phone number and address of the individual.

With only a few exceptions, there arent any specific requirements for cookie policies in jurisdictions other than the European Union. Nevertheless, with hundreds of millions of active Internet users living within the borders of the EU, its hard to imagine many sites that wont receive a few visitors from the region. Consequently, posting a comprehensive cookie policy on your website will help you avoid legal hassles, possible site shutdowns or other issues because of the laws in Europe. Besides, posting a cookie policy makes your site more trustworthy and provides transparency for users. To make sure your policy meets the legal requirements set forth by the EU, it must contain the following sections:

Consent – First and foremost, you must obtain the consent of a visitor or user before placing any type of cookie or data-tracking file on his/her computer. This can be achieved with a pop-up the first time a user visits your site, having your visitors accept a user agreement or allowing them to configure settings for cookies on initial visits. Regardless of the way you receive consent for cookies on your site, though, it must be done before your server or site places the files on the users computers. Additionally, the method used to acquire consent from your users must include a link to the Cookie Policy for your website. Finally, if your site uses third-party cookies or trackers, you must receive consent for those types as well.

Disclosure – In your sites Cookie Policy, you must disclose the types of cookies or data trackers placed on users computers by your website, server or other third parties. In the disclosure, you must identify the cookies or data trackers, explain their purposes and detail the type of data retrieved from the cookies or data trackers. The disclosure must be in easy-to-understand language and be thorough enough that even lay or everyday users can understand the purpose and use of the cookies or data trackers. The Cookie Policy must also list all sites, companies and organizations that will collect or receive data retrieved from cookies or data trackers. In the policy, you must list the legal name of the entities, their addresses and contact information. This applies to any third party companies to which the data or information may be transferred, sold or otherwise disseminated. If cookie or tracker data will be kept offsite with a third party, the name and contact information of the outside party must be included as well.

Opting Out – The Cookie Policy must also include instructions that inform users how to opt-out of cookie or data tracking on your website. You may include language that informs users that using the site may be difficult or impossible if they choose not to enable cookies or data trackers on your site. Nevertheless, the Policy must include instructions on how to disable cookies or data trackers if users or visitors choose to do so.

Although the United States does not have any strict Federal laws regarding online privacy for adults, legislation for children is a different thing altogether. Introduced in October 1998, and revised several times since, the Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) is a law designed to protect the privacy of children under 13 years of age. Consequently, if you operate or own a website designed for or directed toward young children, your sites Privacy Policy must contain additional information to satisfy the requirements for complying with COPPA.

If your site allows visitors younger than the age of 13, and collects data or information from them, the Privacy Policy must include the following elements.

The type of information or data collected from children, whether it be from your server or website directly or from other third parties;

The name, address, email address and telephone number of any and all operators or organizations collecting or maintaining information or data on or from the website;

A description of whether the website allows children to decide if information is made public or accessible by others;

How the website or organization uses any data or information collected from children;

Instructions on how parents can view, edit or delete any information shared on the website by their children.

As you can see, requirements under COPPA are fairly strict and straightforward. In many cases, you can prevent hassles due to COPPA violations by simply refusing access to children under the age of 13, unless you have a good reason to do otherwise. While the above law applies primarily to children in the United States, other countries have passed similar legislation as well. Therefore, if you plan to direct content toward young children, it is wise to find out what the privacy laws are in your area regarding children users and visitors.

If after reading the above, you think that crafting and implementing, legal, effective Cookie and Privacy Policies is difficult and requires a lot of work- youre right it is and it does. Writing legal and acceptable policies requires a lot of planning, research and attention to detail. Consequently, using online templates or auto-generated policies often create more problems than they solve. Each policy will differ from site to site depending on the location of the organization, the location of Web servers and the types of information, products or services the site provides. To think that there is a one-size-fits-all solution for Cookie and Privacy Policies is not only naive but legally reckless as well. Not paying close attention to the language and detail included in policies can leave you and your organization open to possible fines, penalties or even criminal liability.

Here at AllAboutCookies.Org, we understand the ins and outs of cookie and privacy legislation and can help you create comprehensive, yet easy to understand, policies for your website. Before crafting your individual policies, we will conduct audits of your site and existing policies, and then let you know how we can help you go about making the needed changes – so, that you comply with all applicable laws. After auditing your site and receiving your approval, we will commence to crafting privacy documents that will help you avoid any potential legal problems.

If you have questions about our privacy policy development services, please dont hesitate to contact us for a no-obligation consultation. We are here to help you with your policy needs and look forward to hearing from you soon regarding our comprehensive and cost-effective policy writing services.

Please go to our Opt Out Page located here

Please request from the Advertiser network or you may request by .  The Opt Out above is a self-initiated action which will accomplish the same goal.

This section addresses the Article 12 requirement for Transparent information, communication and modalities for the exercise of the rights of the data subject.  An individual consumer who seeks access to personal data concerning them, or who seeks to correct, amend, request processing restrictions, object to processing, or delete personal data or exercise a right of portability should direct his or her query to the respective Flashtalking clients.

Right to be informed (about processing activities and applicable rights)

Right to access data (or obtain data being processed)

Right to rectify information (when outdated or incorrect)

Right to erasure (and to be publicly forgotten)

Right to object to processing (particularly activities based on consent)

Right to restrict processing (when processing is deemed to be unlawful)

Right to data portability (between proprietary systems in a common format)

Rights related to automated decision making (including decisions based on profiling activities)

Flashtalking and its subsidiaries and partners have put into place operational processes to comply with all Data Subject Rights requests within 30 days when received, however we may need to verify certain Personal data fields to ensure we act upon the correct data.

Right to be Informed about Processing (Articles 13 and 14):

We respect and acknowledge that individuals frequently desire to access their personal information. However, we have no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data we process on behalf of our customers. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete data should direct his or her query to the respective Advertiser. If Flashtalking is requested to provide assistance by said Advertiser, we will respond/act within 30 days. You may also Opt Out of our services, in which case, we will no longer process your Personal information.

Right to access data (or obtain data being processed) (Article 15):

A user should first request this from the Advertiser, as we process data on their behalf (processor rather than controller) and as such we will also need their consent to release. We will then request verification of personal data prior to release of the information. If such information cannot be verified, we reserve the right to withhold fulfilment the request.

Right to rectify information (when outdated or incorrect) (Article 16):

Once data access is given, as per Article 15, the user has the right to rectify. However, as this data is collected from the device at the time of the ad being served, it is usually factual (at the time).  Flashtalking has a Contractual Obligation to report on advertisements being served, so the users personal data is not relevant to the ad serve action, which we are obligated to report.

Right to erasure (and to be publicly forgotten) (Article 17):

Right to restrict processing (when processing is deemed to be unlawful) (Article 18):

Flashtalking will suppress unique identifiers to halt processing if requested to by the Advertiser and individual following the actions in Article 15 and 17. User can also accomplish by the Opt Out mechanism.

Right to data portability (between proprietary systems in a common format) (Article 20):

Flashtalkings system is unique and proprietary making data portability difficult however if requested to, we will act in accordance of Article 15 provided that as per Article 20, a common format is available.

Right to object to processing (particularly activities based on consent) (Article 21):

Similar to Article 17, users may object to processing by either requesting from the Advertiser or via our Opt Out mechanism. Flashtalking will comply with all such requests.

Rights related to automated decision making (including decisions based on profiling activities) (Article 22):

While Flashtalking is a member of the advertising community, Flashtalking systems do not rely on any fully automated decision making, making this Article unlikely to apply to Flashtalking activities.
