Note, however, that if you exercise your right to object or your rights of blocking, deletion or to be “forgotten,” or if you decline to share certain information with us, or if you withdraw your consent to our processing of information about you, we may not be able to provide to you some, or any, of the features and functionality of Vistuba Products and Services.

In addition, if certain information has already been provided to third parties as described in this Policy, retention of that information will be subject to those third parties’ policies.

If you wish to exercise any rights you have under applicable data protection law, including the right to access, amend or delete any information we hold about you, you may contact us at support@vistuba.com.

Any information you provide on third-party sites or services, or any information otherwise collected by such third-party sites or services is collected directly by the operators of such services and is subject to those operators’ policies, if any, governing privacy and security, even if accessed through Vistuba Products and Services.

We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of third-party sites or services to which links or access are provided through Vistuba Products and Services.

Data Security

We use certain physical, organizational, and technical safeguards that are designed to improve the integrity and security of information that we collect and maintain.

International Transfers of Personal Data

Your information collected by Vistuba may be transferred to and accessed by Vistuba entities and business partners globally.

You should be aware that the local laws in non-EEA countries may provide less protection than the laws applicable in the EEA. We nonetheless provide the same level of protection as specified in this Policy, regardless of the location of processing. For international transfer of data collected in the EEA, we require data recipients to enter into the model contractual clauses approved by the European Commission or to be certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. You may obtain a copy of the European Commission’s model contractual clauses by contacting us at support@vistuba.com.

 

Retention of Your Information

We retain your information to provide service to you, or as required by applicable laws or regulations.
