Your Individual Rights
With certain legal exceptions and limitations, you may exercise the following rights. We will not discriminate against you, in any manner prohibited by applicable law, for exercising these rights.
Access. You have the right to request information about the categories and specific Personal Information we have collected about you, the sources of Personal Information, the purpose for collecting the Personal Information, the categories of third parties to whom we have shared your Personal Information for a business purpose and the types of Personal Information shared. You may request this information at the contact information above.
Deletion. You may request that we delete your Personal Information.
Correction. You have the right to ask us to correct your Personal Information
Corrections and Requests for Personal Information or Erasure of Personal Information
If you want us to correct your Personal Information or other information, or if you would like us to provide you with a copy of the Personal Information that we hold about you, or if you would like the Personal Information that we hold about you to be erased, please contact us by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or writing to us at The CBORD Group, Inc., 950 Danby Road, Suite 100C, Ithaca, NY 14850, Attention: Privacy Officer. We will respond to any such requests within thirty (30) days of receipt.
Personal Information Retention
Personal Information will be stored for as long as the information is required to fulfill our legitimate business needs or the purposes for which the Personal Information was collected, or for such period as is required by law.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymize such information, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
Disclosing Personal Information to Third Parties
In some instances, however, we may need to provide Personal Information to third parties that we use to deliver specific products or services to you (such as shipping or direct mailing organizations). In such cases, our agreements with these third parties do not permit them to use Personal Information for purposes other than fulfilling those services or allow such third parties to further disclose your Personal Information.
We may also disclose aggregated data to our advertisers and other third parties to generate reports, marketing and technical research and for related business purposes.
You should know that e-mail is not necessarily secure against all forms of interception. If your communication includes sensitive information about your organization and you would prefer not to transmit this information in this fashion, please contact us by post or telephone rather than e-mail. We use e-mail addresses for marketing purposes and to inform those interested in our events, products, services or other items of interest.
Whilst every effort and measure is taken to reduce the risk of data breaches, we have dedicated controls and procedures in place for such situations, along with the procedures that are required to make notifications to the relevant supervisory authority and data subjects (where applicable).
