This Privacy Statement describes what data AutoUpLink Tech collects, stores, processes, uses and shares when you visit the autouplinktech.com e-commerce site (collectively the “Services”).
What are Cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by online service providers in order to (for example) make their websites or services work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner or service provider (in this case, AutoUpLink Tech) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website or service you are using (such as advertising, interactive content and analytics). The third parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website or service in question and also when it visits certain other websites or services.
This section applies to Personal Information that we collect and process through the Websites and in the usual course of our business, such as in connection with our recruitment, events, sales and marketing activities. In this section “you” and “your” refers to Visitors.
(i) Information you provide to us on the website, when interacting with the Services or otherwise: certain parts of our website may ask you to provide Personal Information voluntarily. For example, we may ask you to provide certain Personal Information (such as your name, contact details, company name, profile information) in order to submit inquiries to us. We may also collect Personal Information, such as your contact and job details and feedback, when you attend our events, take part in surveys, or through other business or marketing interactions we may have with you. You may choose to provide additional information when you communicate with us or otherwise interact with us, and we will keep copies of any such communications for our records.
The Personal Information that you are asked to provide, and the reasons why you are asked to provide it, will be made clear to you at the point we ask you to provide your Personal Information. We will also let you know prior to collection whether the provision of the Personal Information we are collecting is compulsory or may be provided on a voluntary basis and the consequences, if any, of not providing the information.
We may use the information we collect through our website and the Services for a range of reasons, including:
Blog: we have public blogs on our website. Any information you include in a comment on our blog may be read, collected, and used by anyone. If your Personal Information appears on our blogs and you want it removed, contact us here. If we are unable to remove your information, we will tell you why.
Social media platforms and widgets: our Websites include social media features, such as the Facebook Like button. These features may collect information about your IP address and which page you are visiting on our Website, and they may set a cookie to make sure the feature functions properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Website. We also maintain presences on social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Any information, communications, or materials you submit to us via a social media platform is done at your own risk without any expectation of privacy. We cannot control the actions of other users of these platforms or the actions of the platforms themselves. Your interactions with those features and platforms are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them.
Data we securely process and store includes but is not limited to:
(i) Our service providers: Sometimes, we share your information with our third-party service providers who help us provide and support our Services and other business-related functions. For example, if it is necessary to provide Visitors something they have requested (like enable a feature such as Social Profiles), then we may share Visitors’ Personal Information with a service provider for that purpose. Other examples include analyzing data, hosting data, engaging technical support for our Services, and delivering content.
Any competent law enforcement body, regulatory body, government agency, court or other third party where we believe disclosure is necessary (a) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (b) to exercise, establish, or defend our legal rights, or (c) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person.
(ii) Any other person with your consent.
We are not in the business of selling or renting user data. We will not share data with third parties outside of AutoUpLink Tech and affiliates except in the following narrow circumstances:
Finally, we may access, disclose and preserve your personal information, including your private content and data, when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to:
Please note that the Service may include the programmatic sharing of your data to sites or services of third parties that have privacy practices different from ours. If you configure your instance of the Service to share such information to any of those sites or services, your shared data and information is then governed by the privacy statements of those third parties once in their possession.
You and your Contacts may have the following data protection rights:
To access, correct, update or request deletion of Personal Information. AutoUpLink Tech takes reasonable steps to ensure that the data we collect is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete and up to date. As a Visitor, you can contact us directly by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection law. We may ask you to verify your identity in order to help us respond efficiently to your request.
Visitors who have opted in to our marketing emails can opt out of receiving marketing emails from us at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of our marketing messages.
Also, all opt-out requests can be made by emailing us using the contact details provided in the “Questions and Concerns” section below. Please note that some communications (such as service messages, account notifications, etc.) are considered transactional and necessary for account management for our customers who also visit the website, and Visitors cannot opt out of these messages unless you permanently terminate your subscription to our products and services, if applicable.
We take appropriate and reasonable technical and organizational measures to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Personal Information. If you have any questions about the security of your Personal Information, you may contact us at email@example.com.
Data Location: the information we collect and process may be stored and processed anywhere in the United States where we, our affiliates, or our third party service providers maintain facilities.
We retain Personal Information where we have an ongoing legitimate business or legal need to do so. Our retention periods will vary depending on the type of data involved, but, generally, we’ll refer to these criteria in order to determine retention period:
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
Under California Law, California residents have the right to request in writing from businesses with whom they have an established business relationship, (a) a list of the categories of Personal Information, such as name, email, and mailing address, and the type of services provided to the customer that a business has disclosed to third parties (including affiliates that are separate legal entities) during the immediately preceding calendar year for the third-parties’ direct marketing purposes, and (b) the names and addresses of all such third parties. To request the above information, please contact us through our contact form or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
