Non-Identifying Information:
We may also collect general information resulting from your activity on the Website, including your preferences and other tendencies. This may include anonymous “traffic data” or tracking information provided by the Website’s host or similar provider of such information (i.e., Google Analytics, WordPress stats) that does not personally identify you, but may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer. Analytics is the process of collecting, analyzing, and reporting aggregate data.

We may share the data collected about your use and property. We may use your depersonalized personal information to provide analyses of the Platform in the aggregate to our prospective business partners and other third parties. We may also share the personal information we collect from you under the following circumstances, and you expressly authorize us to share your information as follows:

  • Protection of rights. We will share personal information if we have a good faith belief that (i) access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, such as a court order or subpoena, or a request by law enforcement or governmental authorities, (ii) such action is appropriate to enforce our Terms of Use for the Platform, including any investigation of potential violations thereof, (iii) such action is necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues associated with the Platform, or (iv) such action is appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of Talon, its employees, users of the Platform or others.

We may share your personal information with service providers (including our affiliates that provide services on our behalf) that we engage for the purpose of processing information on our behalf. Additionally, we may partner with other companies to process, analyze, and/or store data. While providing services for us, these companies may access your personal information. To the extent applicable, we require these entities to comply with this Privacy Policy and appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

Governing Law

 

This notice and our privacy practices will be subject exclusively to the laws of the State of California within the United States of America. By using our Website, you hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the competent courts of California any claim or matter arising under or in connection with the Website.

 

FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS:

 

Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code permits California residents to request from a business, with whom the California resident has an established business relationship, certain information about the types of personal information the business has shared with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes and the names and addresses of the third parties with whom the business has shared such information during the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident, you may make one such request each year by contacting us at usa@talonzippers.com, stating your specific request and your name, address, email address and phone number. This will not prohibit disclosure of information for non-marketing purposes.

 

FOR RESIDENTS OF THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA:

 

Your Personal Data Rights

 

You may be aware that the General Data Protection Regulation or “GDPR” provides certain rights to individuals in relation to their personal data. Accordingly, we have implemented additional transparency to help users take advantage of those rights. As available and except as limited under applicable law, individuals have the rights described below:

  • If you wish to access the personal information that Talon collects, you can do so at any time by contacting us using the contact details provided under “How to Contact Us” heading below.
  • Talon account holders may review, update, correct or delete the personal information in their registration profile by logging into their account. Talon account holders may also contact us to accomplish the foregoing or if you have additional requests or questions.
  • If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), you can object to processing of your personal information, ask us to restrict processing of your personal information or request portability of your personal information where it is technically possible. Again, you can exercise these rights by contacting us using the contact details below.
  • Similarly, if you are a resident of the EEA, if we have collected and processed your personal information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. 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.
  • You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection and use of your personal information. Contact details for data protection authorities in the EEA, Switzerland and certain non-European countries (including the U.S. and Canada) are available here.)

 

We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.

 

Data Retention

 

We keep your personal data only as require by law or as long as necessary for legitimate and essential business purposes, such fulfilling an order, making data-driven business decisions about new features and offerings, complying with our legal obligations, and resolving disputes. We keep some of your personal data for as long as you are an account holder.

 

If you request, we will delete or anonymise your personal data so that it no longer identifies you, unless, we are legally allowed or required to maintain certain personal data, including situations such as the following:

  • If there is an unresolved issue relating to your account, such as an outstanding credit on your account or an unresolved claim or dispute we will retain the necessary personal data until the issue is resolved;
  • Where we are required to retain the personal data for our legal, tax, audit, and accounting obligations, we will retain the necessary personal data for the period required by applicable law; and/or,
  • Where necessary for our legitimate business interests such as fraud prevention or to maintain the security of our users.

 

Data Transfers

 

Your personal information may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or in which we engage service providers. By accepting the terms of this Privacy Notice, you acknowledge, agree and consent to (1) the transfer to and processing of personal information on servers located outside of the country where you reside and (2) our collection and use of your personal information as described herein and in accordance with the data protection laws of the United States, which may be different and may be less protective than those in your country. If you are a resident of the EEA or Switzerland, please note that we use standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission to transfer your personal information from the EEA or Switzerland to the United States and other countries.

 

Legal Basis for Processing Your Personal Information (EEA Visitors/Customers Only)

 

If you are a user located in the EEA, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. We will normally collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate business interests. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you.

 

If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to enter into a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information). Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate business interests, we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate business interests are.

 

If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us using the contact details provided under the “How To Contact Us” heading below.
