DISCLOSURE FOR LEGAL PURPOSES
Papyrus Author reserves the right to disclose any personally identifiable information or other information it collects through the Website or otherwise if it is required to do so by law or if it reasonably believes that the disclosure is necessary in order to (a) fulfill a government request; (b) conform with the requirements of law or to comply with legal process served on it; (c) protect or defend its legal rights or property or third party licensors of any material on the Website; or (d) in an emergency to protect the health or safety of the Users of the Website or the general public.
HOW DOES PAPYRUS AUTHOR USE THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS?
In addition to the uses mentioned or described above, Papyrus Author uses the information that it collects from or about you to improve the materials, Services, and products that it makes available to you to notify you of changes made to the Website or new Services or products made available on or through the Website, to evaluate your needs and customize Website content delivered to you according to those needs, to facilitate the processing of any purchases or uses you make through the Website, to send you promotional material from Papyrus Author and its affiliates, and for other legitimate and lawful business purposes of Papyrus Author. Other than to the extent necessary or convenient for Papyrus Author to perform the Terms of Service, Papyrus Author may share information collected about you with third parties, such as for certain special programs that it offers in connection with some of its business affiliates, which may involve special promotions and/or pricing, and in which you may or may not be participating. Should you register as a participant in one of those programs, Papyrus Author will acknowledge your registration and notify its applicable business affiliates of your registration, thereby enabling you to receive the corresponding program benefits. At this time Papyrus Author does not engage in financial transaction with respect to your personal information. Papyrus Author may engage in these financial transactions in the future. Papyrus Author may sell lists containing personal information contact information including the name, email and address, or a combination thereof, about Website users, clients, purchasers, registrants, or subscribers. By providing your information, you are consenting to such use. You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by contacting the us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW DOES PAPYRUS AUTHOR PROTECT INFORMATION COLLECTED ABOUT YOU?
Papyrus Author places a high value on protecting information transmitted via the Website. For this reason, Papyrus Author processes personal data in accordance with privacy rights and regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and comparable industry standards. Papyrus Author uses state-of-the-art security solutions to process payments and to provide secure communication methods. Papyrus Author’s payment services providers use industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to safeguard user information. Other security safeguards include, but are not limited to, third party payment processors, data encryption, firewalls, and physical access controls to building and files. Papyrus Author does not store payment information. Papyrus Author takes commercially reasonable measures to secure and protect customer-specific information transmitted via or stored on the Website. However, no security system is impenetrable. PAPYRUS AUTHOR CANNOT AND DOES NOT GUARANTEE AND HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS THAT INFORMATION USERS SUPPLY TO PAPYRUS AUTHOR OR ON THE WEBSITE WILL BE TOTALLY SECURE.
HOW LONG DOES PAPYRUS AUTHOR KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fullfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
DOES PAPYRUS AUTHOR DISCLOSE INFORMATION TO OUTSIDE PARTIES?
Papyrus Author may share your information to individuals outside of Papyrus Author, including, without limitation, its affiliates or to any third parties. Currently, Papyrus Author does not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information for a referral fee. Papyrus Author, in its sole discretion, may also release your information when it believes release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce Website policies, or protect Papyrus Author’s or others’ rights, property, or safety. Additional non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
As Papyrus Author continues to grow and develop its business, it is possible that its corporate structure might change or that it might merge or otherwise combine with, or that substantially all of its assets might be acquired by, another company. In any such transactions, customer information generally is, will most probably be, and should be expected to be one of the transferred business assets.
WHAT CHOICES DO YOU HAVE?
You may update at any time the information about you and your personal preferences stored on the Website derived from information you have provided to Papyrus Author. You may also ask Papyrus Author at any time to remove your name from the list of Website Users who wish to receive electronic communications and e-mail advertisements from Papyrus Author or its affiliates by simply sending such a request to Papyrus Author at the numbers or addresses given below. Once you opt out, Papyrus Author will honor your choice until you inform it otherwise. Please remember, however, that if Papyrus Author has already shared information about you pursuant to your registration and participation in any special programs of its business affiliates (as described above), Papyrus Author has no control over how such business affiliates may further use that information and you will need to contact them directly in that regard.
YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
You have the right to any of the following at any time:
Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:
- If you want us to establish the data’s accuracy.
- Where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it.
- Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
- You have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
