You may access, review, correct, update, change or delete your information at any time by contacting us. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, would be extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required.

Please note that we may store information for backups, archiving, prevention of fraud and abuse, analytics, due to legal obligations, or if we believe that we have a legitimate reason to do so.

We may provide you with the opportunity to “opt-out” of having Personal Data stored at Mezchip. If you decide to opt-out, we may not be able to provide certain features of the Mezchi Services to you.

Since Mezchip has no direct relationship with the Customers’ users/customers, a person who seeks access to, or wants to correct or delete inaccurate data or withdraw consent for further contact must contact the Customer directly. We will delete, amend or block access to any Personal Data that we are storing only if we receive a written request to do so from the Customer who is responsible for such Personal Data, unless we have a legal right to retain such Personal Data. We reserve the right to retain a copy of such data for archiving purposes, or to defend our rights in litigation.

5. Who has access to your information?

Mezchip does not rent or sell your information. We restrict access to your information to authorized employees and we do not share your information with third parties except in the circumstances explained below.

Employees and Authorized Contractors

Our employees and authorized contractors may need to access information about you when they require this to perform their job. For example, a customer support representative would need access to your account to validate your identity and respond to your question or request; our email communications team would need access to your contact information to ensure this information is sent correctly and any unsubscribe requests are properly managed; and our security staff would need to review information to investigate attempted denial of service attacks, fraudulent account activity, or other attempts to compromise the Services.

All our employees and contractors are required to agree to maintain the confidentiality and protect the privacy of your information.

Service Providers, Authorized Resellers, and Partners

We will share limited information about you to authorized service providers we use for marketing services, communicating with you, managing our customer database, the provision of professional services, and providing and managing the Services (including hosting data centers, securing our Services, and payment processing).

Where you have purchased a service from an authorized reseller or partner, we may provide information about you to (and may receive information about you from) the reseller or partner as necessary to support your use of the service you purchased.

When sharing your information with any of these service providers, resellers and partners, we ensure they agree to obligations consistent with this Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures, and only use your information to carry out the Services and your requests.

Social Networks and Third-Party Services

Law Enforcement, Government Agencies, and Professional Advisors

We may need to disclose information about you where we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law or regulation, or if we are otherwise legally required to do so, such as in response to a court order or legal process, or to establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or to defend against legal claims or demands.

In addition, we may be required to disclose information about you if we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action: (a) against illegal activities, fraud, situations involving potential threats to our rights or property (or to the rights or property of those who use our Services), or to protect the personal safety of any person; or (b) regarding situations that involve the security of our Services, abuse of the Services infrastructure, or the Internet in general (such as voluminous spamming, or denial of service attacks).

6. What International data transfers occur under Mezchip?

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other data protection laws, information about you may only be transferred from your region to other regions if certain requirements are met. For instance, under the GDPR, information about you may be transferred from the European Economic Area (EEA) to outside the EEA if adequate data protections are in place. We may store, process and transfer Personal Data we collect through the Mezchip Services in centralized databases and with service providers located in the U.S. The U.S. may not have the same data protection framework as the country from which you may be using the Mezchip Services. When we transfer Personal Data to the U.S., we will protect it as described in this Privacy Policy.

Mezchip uses third-party service providers, such as managed hosting providers, credit card processors, and technology partners to provide the software, networking, infrastructure and other services required to operate the Services. These third-party providers may process or store personal data on servers outside of the EEA. We rely on the service provider’s registration in the EU-US Privacy Shield and/or standard contractual clauses (if sent to the US) to ensure that information about you is lawfully transferred under EU law.

The Social Networks, online stores and Third-Party Services that you choose to integrate with our Services may collect, store, and process your information from various locations around the world according to their own terms and privacy policies.

7. How do we safeguard your information?

Mezchip maintains industry standard security safeguards to protect your information. This includes ensuring our employees receive appropriate security and privacy training and guidance so they are aware of the measures they need to implement to protect your information.

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing of the Personal Data in our possession. This includes, for example, firewalls, password protection and other access and authentication controls. We use SSL technology to encrypt data during transmission through public internet, and we also employ application-layer security features to further anonymize Personal Data.

However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or store on the Service, and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If you believe your Personal Data has been compromised, please contact us at contact@mezchip.com

If we learn of a security systems breach, we will inform you and the authorities of the occurrence of the breach in accordance with applicable law.

8. How long do we retain your information?

We retain your information only as long as required to provide the Services requested by you, for record keeping purposes, to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce the terms for the Services.

After it is no longer necessary for us to retain information about you, we will dispose of it in a secure manner or anonymize the information.

9. California privacy rights

Provided you are a California resident, California law dictates that you may request information about any sharing of Personal Data with third-parties for direct marketing purposes. Please see instructions and regulation in the Shine the Light Law. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to us using the contact information provided below.

California law also requires that inform how we respond to a “Do Not Track” signal which some browsers offer to send. At this stage no uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this privacy notice.

If you are under 18 years of age, reside in California, and have a registered account with the Website, you have the right to request removal of unwanted data that you publicly post on the Website. To request removal of such data, please contact us using the contact information provided below, and include the email address associated with your account and a statement that you reside in California. We will make sure the data is not publicly displayed on the Website, but please be aware that the data may not be completely or comprehensively removed from all our systems .

10.Minors privacy

As stated in our Terms of Service/ the Agreement, the Mezchip Services are not for children under the age of 18, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Data from children under the age of 18 without obtaining parental consent. If you are under 18 years of age, then please do not use or access Mezchip Services. Should we learn that Personal Data has been collected through the Mezchip Services from children under 18 years of age without verifiable parental consent, we will seek to delete this information.

To the extent that a minor has posted content on the Mezchip Services which is available for a group of people, the minor has the right to have this content deleted or removed using options described in this Policy. Even though we will do our outmost to permanently remove content, we cannot guarantee the deletion will be complete.
