With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your data for marketing purposes which may include contacting you by email, phone, text message, or mail with information, news and offers on our services and products. We will not, however, send you any unsolicited marketing or spam and will take all reasonable steps to ensure that we fully protect your rights and comply with our obligations under the GDPR and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, as amended in 2004, 2011 and 2015.

Please note that we do not control the activities of such advertisers, nor the information they collect and use.

  4. How and Where Do We Store Your Data?

    1. We only keep your data for as long as we need to in order to use it as described above in section 3, and/or for as long as we have your permission to keep it.  In any event, we conduct annual reviews to ascertain whether we need to keep your data based on our retention policy.

    3. In certain circumstances we may be legally required to share certain data held by us, which may include your personal information, for example, where we are involved in legal proceedings, where we are complying with the requirements of legislation, a court order, or a governmental authority. We do not require any further consent from you in order to share your data in such circumstances and will comply as required with any legally binding request that is made of us.
  6. What Happens If Our Business Changes Hands?

    1. We may, from time to time, expand or reduce our business and this may involve the sale and/or the transfer of control of all or part of our business.

  12. Automated Decision-Making and Profiling

    1. In the event that we use personal data for the purposes of automated decision-making and those decisions have a legal (or similarly significant effect) on you, you have the right to challenge to such decisions under GDPR, requesting human intervention, expressing their own point of view, and obtaining an explanation of the decision from us.

      2. the decision is authorized by law; or

  13. Summary of California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

    We have a “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). This is a data protection law that provides California residents with certain choices about their data. We do not sell any personal data (ex: your name, email address, phone number, etc.) in the traditional sense. However, the CCPA uses very broad definitions for the words “sale” and “personal information”.

    Under the CCPA, “personal information” includes information that is not necessarily directly tied to an individual’s identity but may be associated with a device. This includes identifiers such as IP addresses, browser cookies, and web beacons. The term “sell” does not necessarily mean selling personal information in exchange for money. It can mean sharing or transferring any data. An example of this would be the common flow of information to digital analytics and/or ad platforms.

    Under the CCPA, California residents have:

    1. the right to know what personal data is being collected;
    2. the right to know if your personal data is sold/disclosed and to whom;
    3. the right to say “no” to the sale of your personal data;
    4. the right to request your personal data;
    5. the right to request the deletion of your personal information;
    6. the right to not be discriminated against for exercising your privacy rights.

    To request your personal data and/or the deletion of your personal data, reach out to privacy@teknicks.com.

    You can also opt-out of cookie tracking from this point on by managing your cookie preferences.

  14. Third Party Sites

    This Privacy Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information or other practices of any third parties, including without limitation any of our affiliates and any third party operating any site to which this site contains a link.
