GDPR-specific Disclosures

This section is applicable only to residents of the European Economic Area, Switzerland and the U.K. (“European Residents”), and discusses how we comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679) of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons regarding the processing of Personal Information and on the free movement of such data (“GDPR”).

Under the GDPR, we are the controller and co-processor of the Personal Information of European Residents. Our purpose for collecting and processing Personal Information from European Residents is to provide them with information regarding our Services.  We do not, however, ship our products outside the United States from our Site.  The legal basis for collecting Personal Information is your consent to obtain information about our Services.  You may withdraw consent from receiving marketing and promotional communications by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link on the communication email or contacting us at support@aimtrendz.com. If European Residents do not provide Personal Information to us or withdraw consent for processing such Personal Information, we may not be able to provide such residents with information regarding our Services.  You may still be able to obtain information regarding our products or purchase products through one of the sites run by our authorized distributors.

European Residents may obtain information about the Personal Information that we hold about them by contacting us using the information below under “Contact Information”.

International data transfers

Some of our data processors listed above are located outside the country in which you reside. For example, if you reside in the European Economic Area (EEA), we may need to transfer your personal data to jurisdictions outside the EEA. Whenever we make such a transfer, we will make sure that either (a) the jurisdiction in which the recipient third party is located guarantees an adequate level of protection for your personal data or (b) we conclude an agreement with the applicable third party that ensures such data-privacy protection (such as by including GDPR-compliant standard contractual clauses (SCCs)). We will not transfer your personal data internationally if no appropriate level of protection can be granted.

California-specific disclosures

The section is applicable only to individuals or households in California (“California consumers”).  

The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides California consumers with additional rights regarding Personal Information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly with a particular consumer or household. The categories of Personal Information we collect are generally described above but differ for individual consumers depending on the Services used by such consumers.

Under the CCPA, California consumers have the following rights:

Right to Know and Right to Delete.

A California consumer has the right to request that we disclose what Personal Information we collect, use, disclose and sell. A California consumer also has the right to submit requests to delete Personal Information.

When we receive a request to know or delete from a California consumer, we will confirm receipt of the request within 10 business days and provide information about how we will process the request, including our verification process. We will respond to such requests within 45 days.

Right for Disclosure of Personal Information.

A California consumer may also submit requests that we disclose specific types or categories of Personal Information that we collect.

Under certain circumstances, we will not provide such information, including where the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable and unreasonable risk to the security of that Personal Information, customers’ accounts with us, or the security of our systems or networks. We also will not disclose California consumers’ social security numbers, driver’s license numbers or other government-issued identification numbers, financial account numbers, any health insurance or medical identification numbers, or account passwords and security questions and answers.

Submitting Requests

If you are a California consumer and would like to make any requests under the CCPA, please direct them to us using the information below under “Contact Information”.

Verifying Requests

If we receive any request we will use a two-step process for online requests where the California consumer must first, clearly submit the request and then second, separately confirm the request. We will use other appropriate measures to verify requests received by mail or telephone.

In submitting a request, a California consumer must provide sufficient information to identify the consumer, such as name, email address, home or work address, or other such information that is on record with us so that we can match such information to the Personal Information that we maintain. Do not provide social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, account numbers, credit or debit card numbers, medical information or health information with requests. If requests are unclear or submitted through means other than as outlined above, we will provide the California consumer with specific directions on how to submit the request or remedy any deficiencies. If we cannot verify the identity of the requestor, we may deny the request.

California Do Not Track Disclosures

Although some browsers currently offer a “do not track (‘DNT’) option,” no common industry standard for DNT exists. We therefore do not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals.

Miscellaneous

Children

Our Services are directed at a general audience and not directed to those under the age of 18. AIMTrendz asks that minors not submit any personal data. AIMTrendz does not knowingly collect personal data from individuals under 16 years of age and if we obtain actual knowledge that a user is under 16 years of age, we will take steps to remove that individual”s personal data from our systems.

Retention of Personal Data

We retain personal data we collect from you for as long as you use our Services or, if longer, as necessary to fulfill the legitimate business need for which it was collected. For example, we retain information in order to provide you with the Services, to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements, and to enforce our agreements, prevent fraud, assist with investigations, resolve disputes, analyze or troubleshoot programs, enforce our terms of use, or take other actions permitted by law. We may also retain information to prevent re-registration in the event that your account has been suspended or terminated or to create an archival copy of your information, which might be used by us for record keeping and internal purposes.

We do not discriminate against you if you decide to exercise your rights. It means that we will not (i) deny any goods and services, (ii) charge you different prices, (iii) deny any discounts or benefits, (iv) impose penalties, or (v) provide you with lower quality services.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

From time to time, AIMTrendz may update its Privacy Policy. Where these changes are material in nature we may notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes prior to implementing them, by directly sending you a notification, or by posting the most recent version of the Privacy Policy on the Website with the “Last Updated” date posted at the top. You should check the Website frequently for updates. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy frequently to be informed of how AIMTrendz is collecting and protecting your personal data.
