This Privacy Notice (the “Privacy Notice”) describes how Authlete, Inc. and its affiliates (“Authlete,” “we,” “our” or “us”) collect, use, and share information in connection with your use of our websites (including www.authlete.com), services, and applications (collectively, the “Services”). It also describes your data protection rights, including a right to object to some of the processing that we carry out. More information about your rights, and how to exercise them, is set out in the “What rights do I have?” section below.
This Privacy Notice does not apply to information our customers may process when using our Services.
We recommend that you read this Privacy Notice in full to ensure you are fully informed. If you have any questions about this Privacy Notice or Authlete’s data collection, use, and disclosure practices, please contact us from our contact page.
We may collect and receive information about users of our Services (“users,” “you,” or “your”) from various sources, including: (i) information you provide through your user account on the Services (your “Account”) if you register for the Services; (ii) your use of the Services; and (iii) from third-party websites, services, and partners.
The personal information that you are asked to provide and the reasons why you are asked to provide it will be made clear to you at the point we ask you to provide your personal information.
We use the information we collect for the following purposes and legal bases:
If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).
We have carried out balancing tests for all the data processing we carry out on the basis of our legitimate interests, which we have described above. You can obtain information on any of our balancing tests by contacting us using the details set out later in this Privacy Notice.
Wherever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw that consent, although we may have other legal grounds for processing your data for other purposes, such as those set out above. In some cases, we are able to send you direct marketing without your consent, where we rely on our legitimate interests. You have an absolute right to opt-out of direct marketing, or profiling we carry out for direct marketing, at any time. You can do this by following the instructions in the communication where this is an electronic message, or by contacting us using the details set out below.
We may share the information we collect in various ways, including the following:
Authlete is a global business. We may transfer personal information to countries other than the country in which the data was originally collected. These countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. In particular, your personal information may be transferred from a place in the EEA to a place outside the EEA that is not subject to an adequacy decision by the EU Commission , in which case such transfer is adequately protected by EU Commission approved standard contractual clauses, an appropriate Privacy Shield certification, or our internal binding corporate rules. A copy of the relevant mechanism can be provided for your review upon request. When we transfer your personal information to other countries, we will protect that information as described in this Privacy Notice.
Authlete is committed to protecting your information. To do so, we employ a variety of security technologies and measures designed to protect information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your personal information. However, please bear in mind that the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements).
Where we process personal data for marketing purposes or with your consent, we process the data until you ask us to stop and for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your requests). We also keep a record of the fact that you have asked us not to send you direct marketing or to process your data so that we can respect your request in the future.
Where we process personal data in connection with performing a contract with you, we keep the data for 6 years from your last interaction with us.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it 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.
In accordance with applicable laws, you may have rights in relation to your personal information. Such rights include:
If you are a registered user, you may access certain information associated with your Account by contacting from our website. If you terminate your Account, any public activity on your Account prior to deletion may remain stored on our servers and may remain accessible to the public.
If you are a resident of the EEA, you have the following data protection rights:
Your rights may be limited. To protect your privacy and security, we may also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before updating or removing your information. The information you provide us may be archived or stored periodically by us according to backup processes conducted in the ordinary course of business for disaster recovery purposes. Your ability to access and correct your information may be temporarily limited where access and correction could: inhibit Authlete’s ability to comply with a legal obligation; inhibit Authlete’s ability to investigate, make or defend legal claims; result in disclosure of personal information about a third party; or result in breach of a contract or disclosure of trade secrets or other proprietary business information belonging to Authlete or a third party. Relevant exemptions are included in applicable data protection laws. We will inform you of the relevant exemptions we rely upon when responding to any request you make.
We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
You may unsubscribe from receiving certain promotional emails from us. If you wish to do so, simply follow the instructions found at the end of the email. Even if you unsubscribe, we may still contact you for informational, transactional, account-related, or similar purposes.
This Privacy Notice may be modified from time to time, so please review it frequently. Changes to this Privacy Notice will be posted on our websites. If we materially change the ways in which we use or share personal information previously collected from you through our Services, we will notify you through our Services, by email, or other communication.
