3.2 EU Persons
We limit the processing of Personal Data of persons in the EU (“EU Personal Data”) to that which is relevant for the purposes of the particular processing. We do not process EU Personal Data in ways that are inconsistent with the purposes for which the information was collected or subsequently authorized by you.
In addition, to the extent necessary for these purposes, we take reasonable steps to ensure that the EU Personal Data we process is (a) reliable for its intended use, and (b) accurate, complete and current. In this regard, we rely on you to update and correct EU Personal Data to the extent necessary for the purposes for which the information was collected or subsequently authorized. You may contact us at email@example.com to request that we update or correct relevant EU Personal Data.
Subject to applicable law, we retain EU Personal Data in a form that identifies or renders you identifiable only for as long as it serves a purpose that is compatible with the purposes for which the Personal Data was collected or subsequently authorized by you.
Notice and Consent
If we decide to process EU Personal Data for purposes other than what is necessary to provide services to you or where we believe that your interests may override ours, persons in the EU will receive a notice detailing:
- The type of Personal Data to be processed;
- The purpose for the processing and a description of how the processing is based on legitimate interests;
- The categories of recipients of disclosures of the Personal Data;
- The period for which the Personal Data will be stored or the criteria for determining the period;
- How Customers and Site Visitors can exercise the rights of access, correction, erasure, objection, and the right to withdraw consent;

- Whether the Personal Data will be subject to automated processing and, if so, the logic and the consequences of the processing for the data subject.
Such notices will be clear, conspicuous, and readily available to affected EU Persons. A notice will require an unambiguous, affirmative, opt-in consent to the particular use or processing of the EU Personal Data.
Transfers of Personal Data
With respect to transfers of your Personal Data to third-party data processors, we will:

- Upon notice, including under (e) above, take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized processing of the Personal Data by the data processor.
You generally have the right to access your Personal Data. Accordingly, where appropriate, we provide you with reasonable access to the Personal Data we maintain about you. We also provide you a reasonable opportunity to correct, amend, or delete your information.
We may limit these opportunities where the burden or expense of honoring a request would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy, or where the rights of persons other than you would be violated. Other reasons for denying requests or limiting access include (a) interference with the execution or enforcement of the law or with private causes of action, including the prevention, investigation, or detection of offenses; (b) breaching a legal or other professional privilege or obligation; (c) prejudicing security investigations or grievance proceedings or in connection with succession planning and corporate re-organizations.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to your Personal Data. If access cannot be granted, we will respond with a reason for denying your request.
If a complaint regarding Personal Data cannot be resolved through our internal processes, we will cooperate with applicable data protection authorities to address a complaint and provide appropriate recourse.
