  1. Your Privacy Rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

In some regions like the European Economic Area (EEA), you have certain rights under applicable data protection laws including the GDPR. These may include the right (i) to request access and obtain a copy of your personal information, (ii) to request rectification or erasure; (iii) to restrict the processing of your personal information; and (iv) if applicable, to data portability. In certain circumstances, you may also have the right to object to the processing of your personal information. To make such a request, please use the contact details provided below and we will act upon any reasonable request in accordance with the GDPR or any applicable data protection laws. 

We only share information with your consent to comply with legal authorities, provide you with services, protect your rights, or fulfill Company obligations.   

If we rely on your consent to process your personal information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. However, any processing that occurred prior to the consent withdrawal will not affect the legality of that processing. 

Legally, we may process personal data if there is at least one legal basis as follows:

  • Consent: If you have given us specific consent to use your personal information for a specific purpose.  
  • Legitimate Interests:  If it is reasonably necessary to achieve our legitimate business interests.
  • Performance of a Contract: If we have entered into a contract with you, we may process your personal information to fulfill the terms of our contract.
  • Legal Obligations: If we are legally required to disclose your information 
  • Vital Interests: If we believe it is necessary to protect the data or safety of any individual. 
  • Public Interest: If processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest

If you are resident in the European Economic Area and you believe we are unlawfully processing your personal information, you also have the right to complain to your local data protection supervisory authority. You can find their contact details here.      

  1. Controls for Do-Not-Track Features

Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) features can be found on most web browsers and many mobile operating systems and applications which give you the ability to prevent your online browsing activities from being monitored and collected. There is currently no standard or uniform technology to recognize or implement DNT instructions. We therefore do not currently respond to DNT browser or other automatic signals that indicate your choice not to be tracked online. Should this situation change, it will be reflected in a revised privacy policy indicating the change. 

  1. Specific Privacy Rights of California Residents

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 allows our users who are California residents to obtain from us, once a year upon request, without a fee, information about the categories of personal information (if any) that were disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes. We will provide the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared personal information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you reside in California and would like to receive this information, please submit your request in writing to the contact information below. 

If you are under 18 years of age, reside in California, and have a registered account with Related Services, you have the right to request that any data that you publicly posted on any Related Services be removed. To request removal of such data, please contact the Company using the contact information below, and indicate where the unwanted data was posted.  Please indicate that you reside in California and include the email address associated with your account. We will remove the data from public display on the Related Service, but the data may not be completely removed from our internal systems.
