THIRD PARTY SERVICES

This Privacy Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information, or other practices of any third party operating any site or service to which the Sites link.

We cannot fully eliminate all security risks associated with your transmitting Personal Information to us. We do not ensure or warrant the security of any data or information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Certain areas of the Sites may require the use of a user ID, email address, and/or password as an additional security measure to help protect your information.

Retention Period

We will retain your Personal Information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required by law. When there is no longer a legitimate need to retain your information, we will securely delete or anonymize it, or if this is not possible, securely store it until deletion is possible.

USE OF SERVICE BY MINORS

The Sites are not directed to individuals under the age of 13, and we request that these individuals do not provide Personal Information through the Sites. In the event that we learn that we have collected Personal Information on the Sites from a child under age 13, we will delete that information promptly. If you believe that we might have any Personal Information from a child under 13, please contact us at the details at info@omnilert.com so that we may delete it.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

In addition to the rights as explained in this Privacy Policy, under California’s “Shine the Light” law, California residents who provide personal information (as defined in the statute) are entitled to request once a calendar year a notice about the personal information we shared, if any, with other businesses for marketing uses. If applicable, this notice would include the categories of personal information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared such personal information for the immediately prior calendar year (for example, requests made in 2020 will receive information about 2019). If you are a California resident and want a copy of this information please write to us at: Omnilert, LLC, 880 Harrison Street SE, Leesburg, VA 20175 or info@omnilert.com. Please specify that you are submitting a “California Privacy Rights Notice.”

“California Consumer Privacy Act” -- The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) gives California consumers enhanced rights with respect to their personal information that is collected by businesses. The CCPA provides California consumers with three rights regarding their personal information.

First, California consumers can opt out of the sale of their Personal Information. However, this option is not available as Omnilert does not sell your Personal Information.

Second, California consumers may opt out of having their personal information sold to other persons or parties.

Third, California consumers can request to know:

  1. 1. What specific pieces of information a business has collected about the consumer;
    2. Categories of personal information it has collected about the consumer;
    3. Categories of sources from which the personal information is collected;
    4. Categories of personal information that the business sold or disclosed for a business purpose about the consumer;
    5. Categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold or disclosed for a business purpose; and
    6. The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.

Fourth, California consumers can request that a business delete Personal Information about the consumer that a business has collected from the consumer.

This Privacy Policy provides the required notices to California consumers. The categories of Personal Information we collect and disclose for business purposes in the preceding 12 months are described above. The CCPA also prohibits covered businesses from providing discriminatory treatment to California consumers if they exercise their rights under the CCPA.

To make a “Request to know” or “Request to Delete” your personal information, send us an e-mail at info@omnilert.com. Please put either “Request to Know” or “Request to Delete” in the subject line of your email. You may also submit these requests via our CCPA Interactive Request Form at www.omnilert.com/ccpa-request. Authorized agents may also complete and submit the Interactive Request Form on behalf of a California Consumer.

We will confirm receipt of your request within 10 business days. We must provide the requested information or delete your personal information within 45 days of receipt of your request, but we can use up to an additional 45 days if we let you know that additional time is needed.

Before responding, we must verify that the person making the request is the person about whom we have collected their personal information. We may ask you to provide certain, limited personal information, such as your name and email address to verify and match your identity with our records and systems. If you have an account with us, we may ask that you verify your identity through our account authentication process. This is also to protect against fraud. We will not retain this personal information or use it for any other purpose. Also please be advised that we need to search our records and systems only for the preceding 12 months. There may be cases where we do not have any personal information about you or we are not able to verify your identity for matching purposes. Deleting your Personal Information may result in the closing of your account and inability to access the Services. However, you can always re-register at any time.

(Residents of Nevada and other states may also have similar rights to request information about or delete their personal information. To inquire about exercising these rights, please contact us at info@omnilert.com.)

LOCATED IN THE UNITED STATES

Omnilert and the Sites are located and hosted in the United States and governed by US law. If you are outside the United States when you visit the Sites or engage in communications with us via mail, e-mail or telephone, please be aware that your Personal Information may be transferred to, stored and processed in the United States where our servers are located. Any information you provide to us, or that we collect through your use of the Sites and will be stored, processed, and transferred within, or to, the United States. Please be aware that the United States and jurisdictions other than the one in which you are located may not provide the same level of data protection as considered adequate in your country. Note also that your Personal Information may be available to the US Government or its agencies under legal process in the United States.

EEA, UNITED KINGDOM AND SWITZERLAND PRIVACY RIGHTS

The Legal Basis for Using EEA, UK and Swiss Personal Information

For residents of the European Economic Area (EEA), United Kingdom and Switzerland, we advise that your Personal Information will be transferred to and processed in the United States, which has data protection laws that are different than those in your country and may not be as protective. The United States has not sought or received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 45 of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). Our legal basis for collecting and using your Personal Information is to do so with your consent; where we need the Personal Information for performance of a contract or requested service, including to provide you with our daily Newsletter, or where the collection and use is in our or another’s legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect the Personal Information in question. If we collected your Personal Information with your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time.

Our retention of your Personal Information and any subsequent communications are based on our legitimate interest in providing you with new and potentially relevant materials based on your geography, role, or company. As always, you can elect to opt out from receiving such future communications.

To the extent that we transfer Personal Information from the EEA, UK or Switzerland to a jurisdiction outside the EEA, UK or Switzerland that has not been adduced by the European Commission as providing adequate data protections (such as the United States), we will ensure that such Personal Information is safeguarded through appropriate contractual terms or other approved mechanisms.

Rights for EEA. UK or Swiss Residents

In addition, if you are a resident of the EEA, UK or Switzerland, you have the right to:

  • Find out if we use your Personal Information, to access your Personal Information, and receive copies of your Personal Information.
  • Withdraw any express consent that you have provided to the processing of your Personal Information at any time without penalty.
  • Access your Personal Information and have it corrected or amended if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
  • Obtain a transferable copy of some of your Personal information which can be transferred to another provider when the Personal Information was processed based on your consent.
  • If you believe your Personal Information is inaccurate, no longer necessary for our business purposes, or if you object to our processing of your Personal Information, you also have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your data pending our investigation and/or verification of your claim.
  • Request your Personal Information be deleted or restricted under certain circumstances. For example, if is using your Personal Information on the basis of your consent and has no other legal basis to use such, you may request your Personal Information be deleted when you withdraw your consent.

Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your Personal Information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.

If we ask you to provide Personal Information to us to comply with a legal requirement or enter into a contract, we will inform you of this and let you know whether providing us with your Personal Information is required and if not, the consequences of not sharing your Personal Information with us.

Similarly, if we collect and use your Personal Information in reliance on our or a third party's legitimate interests and those interests are not already described above, we will let you know what those legitimate interests are.

We endeavor to apply suitable safeguards to protect the privacy and security of your Personal Information and to use it only consistent with your relationship with us and the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

To withdraw consent or exercise these rights, please contact us via email at info@omnilert.com.

If you are not satisfied with our response, or believe we are processing your Personal Information in violation of the law, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Supervisory Authority (also known as Data Protection Authority) or other appropriate governmental authority in your EEA Member State or Switzerland.

The date of the last revision to this Privacy Policy will be indicated by the “Last updated” date at the top of this page.
