For California Residents

California Shine the Light Law – California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed “personal information” (as defined under that statute) of that California resident, for direct marketing purposes, in the preceding calendar year, and the categories of that kind of personal information that was disclosed to them. If you are a California resident and you wish to make such a request, you may contact us by using the contact information at the bottom of this Policy.

California Minors – If you are a California resident who is under age 18 and you are unable to remove publicly-available content that you have submitted to us, you may request removal by contacting us at the email address listed below. When requesting removal, you must be specific about the information you want removed and provide us with specific information, such as the URL for each page where the information is located, so that we can find it. We are not required to remove any content or information that: i) federal or state law requires us or a third party to maintain; ii) was not provided by you; iii) is anonymized so that you cannot be identified; iv) you don’t follow our instructions for removing or requesting removal; or v) you received compensation or other consideration for providing the content or information. Removal of your content or information from the website does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that content or information from any other entity that we have shared your information with or that has collected it automatically through tools incorporated into the website. We are not required to delete the content or information posted by you; our obligations under California law are satisfied so long as we anonymize the content or information or render it invisible to other users and the public.

For European Union Residents

If you are a resident of the European Union, the collection, storage, and retention of your information may also be subject to the provisions of the European General Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”). We endeavor to act in accordance with all applicable provisions of the GDPR and to provide you with concise, transparent, understandable, and easily accessible information on the conditions for processing your PII in clear and simple terms. If you reside in the European Union, in addition to any other rights or responsibilities you may have in connection with your agreement to the terms of this Privacy Policy, your rights are as follows:

  1. The right to information on the processing of your PII.
  2. The right to access and rectify your PII. The right of access allows you to obtain from us confirmation that your PII has or has not been processed as well as the conditions of such processing, and to receive an electronic copy (for any additional copy, we are entitled to demand payment of any reasonable fees based on the administrative costs incurred).
  3. The right to obtain from us the rectification of your PII.
  4. Subject to the exceptions provided by applicable law, you have the right to ask us to delete your PII when one of the following grounds applies:
    1. Your PII is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed;
    2. You wish to withdraw your consent on which the processing of your PII was based and there is no other basis justifying such processing;
    3. You consider and can establish that your PII has been unlawfully processed;
    4. Your PII must be deleted in accordance with a legal obligation.
  5. The right to restrict the processing of your PII. The applicable regulations provide that this right may be invoked in certain cases, in particular the following:
    1. When you dispute the accuracy of your PII;
    2. When you consider and can establish that the processing of PII is unlawful, but you oppose the deletion of PII and demand instead that the processing be limited;
    3. When we no longer need your PII but they are still necessary for you to establish, exercise, or defend your legal rights;
    4. When you object to the processing that would be based on the legitimate interest of OLAM, during the verification whether the legitimate grounds pursued by the controller prevail over those of the person in question.
  6. The right to data portability. Namely, this allows you to receive the PII you have provided to us with in a structured, commonly used format, and to transmit this PII to another data controller without us hindering it.
  7. The right to withdraw consent. Namely, when we process your PII on the basis of your consent, this latter may be withdrawn at any time using the means provided for this purpose (procedure indicated below of this Policy). On the other hand, and in accordance with applicable law, the withdrawal of your consent is only valid for the future and cannot therefore call into question the lawfulness of the processing carried out before this withdrawal.

If you are a resident of the European Union and you wish to make such a request under any of the rights noted in this policy, you may contact us by using the contact information below. In any such communication, please note that you are making the request as a resident of the European Union.

For all residents of the European Union, in the event of a conflict between the rights noted herein and any rights or responsibilities you may have in connection with other sections of this Privacy Policy, the rights noted in this Section shall control.
