- How your information is used
- We use the information you provide to provide the applicable Services to you. Synvata does not share you with other third parties for marketing or demographic purposes. For us to provide these Services to you, it may be necessary for us to share your personal information with additional third parties for processing. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these Services. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that Service. In addition, Synvata may disclose account or other personal information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with Synvata rights or property, other Website or Software users or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
- Synvata may be forced to disclose an individual’s personal information when compelled by a lawful request made by a recognized public authority or where required to meet national security and or law enforcement requirements. Synvata is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”).
- In cases of onward transfer to third parties of data of EU individuals received pursuant to the EU-US Privacy Shield, Synvata is potentially liable.
- Where we process data
- If you choose to provide Synvata with information, including personal data from the Website, you understand that we are storing or and/or transferring it to Synvata systems within the United States.
- Altering Information You Submit
- Synvata understands that the right to access is fundamental to privacy protection. Accordingly, individuals may: (a) obtain from Synvata confirmation of whether or not it processes their Personal Data, (b) cooperate with Synvata to determine the accuracy and lawfulness of Synvata’s processing of Personal Data, and (c) have the data corrected, amended or deleted where it is inaccurate, but only to the extent practicable. Inquires about access should be directed to email@example.com.
- Deleting your information. Federal and state regulations may require that we store questions or submissions for various periods of time. To comply with these regulations, we may be unable to delete information from our databases.
- Choice – Timing of Opt-Out. Due to the nature of the services it provides to its clients, it is difficult for Synvata to provide individuals the option to opt out. Synvata, therefore, encourages individuals to first request to opt-out with their employer (i.e., Synvata client). In support of the opt-out concept and Synvata’s commitment to the principle of choice, individuals who desire to exclude their Personal Data from the processing Synvata performs may send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Synvata will forward such request to its client and together they will determine the best course of action.
- Request to stop receiving emails from us. Periodically, Synvata may send you emails to alert you to various opportunities available at the Website or in connection with the Software. If you do not wish to receive any of these offers, please send an e-mail to email@example.com to remove yourself from our mailing list.
For EU Citizens
- Data is collected for Services directly from EU citizens only after explicit opt-in consent is given by the individual.
- Data that is submitted by a third party (typically the employer) on behalf of an individual is collected only out of the necessity for the performance of a contract with the employer to which the data subject is a party.
- EU citizens have the right to access and correction of their personal data.
- EU citizens have the right to request the erasure of their data. For data used in the processing of services, some data may need to be retained for reasons stated in Article 17; Paragraph 3 of the GDPR.
- Synvata uses extensive and sophisticated secure technology to protect your data and transmissions between you and Synvata. Transmission between browsers and our web server is implemented using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. This technology requires an SSL-capable browser. Our database is physically separated from our web server and is protected by a physical firewall. Although Synvata has taken reasonable and appropriate measures to ensure that your personal information is delivered and disclosed only in accordance with your instructions, Synvata cannot and does not guarantee that the personal information you provide will not be intercepted by others and decrypted.
