General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
In the event that we collect personal data (as defined in the GDPR) that is subject to the GDPR, this section will apply. Terms in this section are to be understood in a manner consistent with GDPR including the definition of such terms in the GDPR. Such terms may have a different definition or meaning in other portions of this Privacy Notice because GDPR may not apply to those sections. ProfitSword serves as a data processor under GDPR to its clients and is not a data controller with regard to personal data subject to GDPR.
Principles for processing personal data
ProfitSword complies with the principles of GDPR applicable to data processors. The six overall guiding principles of GDPR are:
Lawfulness, transparency and fairness
Confidentiality and integrity
Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. We follow these principles and ask how you would like us to communicate with you.
As a data processor, ProfitSword receives personal data from its clients who are data controllers. We enter into “Data Processing Agreements” with those clients. In those agreements, we agree to protect the privacy and security of personal data.
GDPR allows processing of personal data based on one of six legal bases. The legal bases for processing personal data are:
1. Consent – your freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of your wishes by which you agree to the processing of personal data.
2. Contract – ProfitSword needs to process your personal data for performance of a contract or processes the information at your request prior to entering into a contract.
3. Legal Obligation – processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation.
4. Vital Interests – your (or someone else’s) health, safety or other vital interests require processing personal data.
5. Public Interest – ProfitSword needs to process personal data to carry out a task that’s in the public interest.
6. Legitimate Interest – processing personal data is in ProfitSword’s or a data controller’s legitimate interests.
In order to ensure compliance by us and our clients based in the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) with GDPR and other applicable privacy laws, ProfitSword offers its clients Standard Contractual Clauses (henceforth referred to as “SCC”) to incorporate in our written agreements. The SCC make specific commitments about the ways in which ProfitSword will process personal data transferred out of the EU to ProfitSword for in-scope ProfitSword services. The SCC were issued by the EU Commission to provide EU data Controllers and Processors a framework for ensuring adequate safeguards consistent with EU data protection laws established for personal data transfers outside the EU.
The SCC are applicable only to Personal Data (defined above) made available to ProfitSword by customers in the EEA or Switzerland to ProfitSword for processing in conjunction with ProfitSword software and services.
ProfitSword has invested in the operational processes necessary to meet the requirements of the SCC.
Your legal rights
Under certain circumstances, by law, you have the right to:
Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of our data and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
Request correction of our data (commonly known as “rectification”). This enables you to ask us to correct any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you.
Opt out. Data Subjects have the right to opt out of (a) disclosures of their personal data to third parties not identified at the time of collection or subsequently authorized, and (b) uses of personal data for purposes materially different from those disclosed at the time of collection or subsequently authorized.
Request erasure of our data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove your 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 data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
The above rights apply to data controllers. If you want to exercise any of the rights described above, you should reach out to the controller of your data, e.g., any of our clients who may have collected your data. If you are dissatisfied with the way we have used your information, or believe that we may be a data controller of your personal data, please let us know via this form: https://profitswordprivacy.com
Additionally, you may email us directly at email@example.com. We will process your request without undue delay and in accordance with the requirements of GDPR. Please note that we may keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues which you raise.
Under data protection legislation an individual has various other rights. These rights requests may be submitted in whatever format you wish, but we recommend you email firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure a timely response to your request.
Please note, if the data access request falls under our role as a Data Processor, we will promptly forward the information to the Data Controller and respond to the request as directed by the Data Controller, or if there are actions we are compelled to take according to applicable laws pertaining to Data Processors, we will inform the Data Controller before taking action.
Notice to California Residents – Your California Rights<brThis section is applicable to residents of California. If you are a resident of California, you have certain rights described below. The following do not apply to individuals who do not live in California on a permanent basis.
Rights Provided by California Civil Code Section 1798.83
A California resident who has provided personal data to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (a “California Customer”) may request information about whether the business has disclosed Personal Information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. In general, if the business has made such a disclosure of personal data, upon receipt of a request by a California Customer, the business is required to provide a list of all third parties to whom personal data was disclosed in the preceding calendar year, as well as a list of the categories of personal data that were disclosed. California Customers may request further information about our compliance with this law by mailing us at the address below under “Contact Us” or emailing ProfitSword at: email@example.com. Please note that we are only required to respond to two requests per California Customer each year under Code Section 1798.83.
Rights Under the California Consumer Privacy Act
The above rights are separate from rights that California residents may have under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). Note that the Company is not subject to the CCPA as a “business” (as defined in the statute). Nonetheless, we respect the privacy and wishes of individuals regarding their privacy. As such, you may make a request regarding our use, handling and protection of personal data by contacting us as described in the “Contact Us” section below.
In the event (i) ProfitSword engages in one more asset sales or purchases, (ii) ProfitSword is acquired, (iii) ProfitSword engages in one or more business combinations, mergers or acquisitions, (iv) substantially all of ProfitSword’s assets are acquired, (v) ProfitSword is subject to an event of bankruptcy, or (vi) ProfitSword sells the Website or any related assets or rights in any URL, you acknowledge and agree that user information comprises an asset of ProfitSword and that the same is subject to assignment, transfer and/or acquisition by a third party. Accordingly, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Privacy Notice, you acknowledge and agree that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of ProfitSword may continue to subsequently use your personal data, and that such subsequent use may not be consistent with this Privacy Notice.
Third Party Links
The Website may contain links to webpages or tools operated by parties other than ProfitSword. We do not control such websites or tools and are not responsible for their contents or the privacy policies or other practices of such websites or service providers. Our inclusion of links to an outside website or tool does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or tools or any association with their operators. Further, it is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever links you select or software you download (whether from an electronic platform (such as an app) or other websites) is free of such items as viruses, worms, trojan horses, defects and other items of a destructive nature. These websites and services may have their own privacy policies, which you will be subject to upon accessing the third party’s website. We strongly recommend you review the third party’s terms and policies.
The Website is not intended for use by children. We do not intentionally gather personal data about individuals who are under the age of 13. If a child has provided us with personal data, a parent or guardian of that child may contact us to have the information deleted from our records. If you believe that we might have any information from a child under age 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected the personal data of a child under 13, or equivalent minimum age depending on jurisdiction, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
Do Not Track
Some browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that lets you tell websites and online services that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. Such browser features and industry standards are not uniform, so our websites and online services do not respond to those signals.
