INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF DATA

Halo Connect stores data on cloud servers located in North America. We may also store data on cloud servers located in other countries from time to time.  However, data (including personal information) may be transferred across national boundaries for load balancing, availability, or other reasons.  In the event we were to store personal information of residents of countries outside North America, we would amend this Privacy Policy to incorporate the requirements of such countries and the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).

If you reside in the EEA, please note that we may transmit some of your personal information to an international organization or a country where the data protection laws may not provide a level of protection equivalent to the laws in your jurisdiction. As required by applicable law, we will provide an adequate level of protection for your personal information using various means, including, where appropriate:

  • relying on a formal decision by the European Commission that a certain country ensures an adequate level of protection for personal information;
  • entering into appropriate data transfer agreements based on language approved by the European Commission, such as the Standard Contractual Clauses (2010/87/EC and/or 2004/915/EC);
  • implementing appropriate physical, technical and organizational security measures to protect personal information against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss or alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, and against all other unlawful forms of processing; and
  • taking other measures to provide an adequate level of data protection in accordance with applicable law.

Any onward transfer is subject to appropriate onward transfer requirements as required by applicable law.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES.  The Site may contain links or references to certain third-party websites or referrals to certain third-parties’ products or services. These are provided for your convenience only, and we do not have control over the privacy or security practices and policies of third party sites. If you choose to visit a third party’s website, or use its products or services, the third party’s privacy statement, and not this Policy, will govern your activities and ay information you disclose while interacting with the third party.

CHILDREN.  Consistent with the federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of thirteen (13) without parental consent. Any person who provides their personal information to us through the Site represents that they are 13 years of age or older.  We ask for and store users’ date of birth to ensure they are 13 or older, but do not share that information unless the user chooses to share it on the user’s profile.  If you believe that we have collected information from an individual under the age of 13, please contact us so that we may take appropriate steps to address the issue.

SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION.  The security of your personal information is important to us.  We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once it is received.  No company can fully prevent security risks, however.  Mistakes may happen. Bad actors may defeat even the best safeguards.

DATA RETENTION.  We will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you series and fulfill the purposes described in this Policy.  We will retain and use your information as required or permitted by applicable law, including to comply with our legal or business record keeping obligation, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

CONTACT INFORMATION.  We welcome your comments or questions about this privacy policy.  You may also contact us atprivacy@aperiatech.com.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY.  We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. When we do, we will also revise the “updated date” on the Privacy Policy and without prior notice to you to reflect changes in our personal information practices.  If we make material changes to this Policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page prior to the change becoming effective. For changes to this Privacy Policy that may be materially less restrictive on our use or disclosure of personal information that you have provided to us, the new policy will not apply to information collected prior to the change unless we obtain your consent. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of the Service constitutes your going forward agreement to this Privacy Policy and any updates.
