  5. We may also process any of your personal data as identified in this policy, where necessary for legal claims, on the basis of our legitimate interest (namely, that we want to protect our own legal rights, your legal rights, and the legal rights of everybody else).

  4. We will not give out your information to any other third-party services without your express permission. We don’t like when companies do it to us, so we don’t do it to you.
  5. Understand that if you post any comments or user content to our website, any personally identifiable information you choose to provide may be read, collected, and used by other users of the website, as well as other third parties, for which, we are not responsible.

How we transfer your data internationally:

  1. We operate out of New Mexico in the United States of America. Our website is also hosted on servers located in the United States of America. Any personal data transmitted to us will therefore be transmitted to the United States. Unless agreed upon by contract, we do not transmit your personal data to any third party countries.
  2. We gather information on our website, from sources all over the world. Any such information will be gathered via cookies, forms on our website, or other specified means, and any such information will only be transferred under the circumstances listed above.
  3. You acknowledge, however, that any data you give us may be available, via the internet, around the world. We, unfortunately, cannot prevent the use or misuse of such personal data by others, but we do ensure that the data we receive is only used in the ways we have specified herein. Be sure to check the privacy policies of every third-party service (i.e. Facebook, Google Analytics, etc) used by Astria Business Solutions, LLC. to ensure your rights are being protected elsewhere as well.

 

Retention and deletion of personal data:

  1. Any personal data we process, for any purpose, won’t be kept any longer than necessary for said purpose.
  2. In many cases, it is not possible for us to specify the length of time your information will be retained. This is because of the continued agreement or consent to provide you with services (i.e. information and newsletters) or the continuation of a contract between you and us.
  3. We may also retain your personal information as is necessary for compliance in any legal obligations, to protect your interests or those of another person (not entity).

 

Amendments:

  1. We may update this policy from time to time, by publishing a new version on our website. We recommend that you check this page occasionally.

Your rights:

  1. As always, you have rights when it comes to your personal data. You have the right to access, rectify, or erase any data you have sent us. You also have the right to restrict or object to processing, the right to data portability, to complain to a supervisory authority, and the right to withdraw your consent.
  2. You have the right to confirm whether or not we process your personal data, and what we are doing or have done with any information we’ve already gathered. If you want to know what we have, contact us and we will provide you with what your processed data, provided that the rights of others are not breached in the process. The first copy of your data will be provided to you free of charge, but for additional copies we reserve the right to charge a reasonable fee for processing your request.
  3. You have the right to rectify any of your information that we have gathered, and to complete any incomplete data about you.
  4. In some circumstances, you have the right to have your personal data erased without undue delay. If your personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was collected, you withdraw consent-based processing, you object to processing, the processing is for direct marketing purposes (i.e. our newsletter, etc.), and/or the data was processed against the terms set forth in this policy, we can erase your data without any undue delay. However, there are exclusions for exercising the right of freedom of information, for legal obligations, or the establishment or defense of legal claims.
  5. In some circumstances, you also have the right to restrict how we process your personal information. If you contest the accuracy of said data, the processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure, we no longer need the information but you require personal information for legal claims, and if you have objected to processing but that objection is still pending verification, we can restrict how we process your information. Where we have restricted processing, we may still continue to store any information you have given us, however, we will only process it with your consent, for legal claims, the protection of others’ rights, or for reasons of public interest.
  6. You have the right to object to our processing of your information for direct marketing purposes, for public interest research, or for grounds of your particular situation. If you do not want us to use your information, please let us know as soon as possible and we will take what steps we can within our rights to maintain your satisfaction.
  7. To the extent that our legal basis for processing your data is your consent, contract between you and us, or taking steps toward such a contract, and the processing of your data is automated, you have the right to request your data in a portable form. This means in a commonly used, structured, and machine readable format. But this right does not apply where it affects the rights and freedoms of others in an adverse manner.
  8. If you believe that our use of your data infringes data security laws, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the applicable supervisory authority.
  9. To the extent that our legal basis for processing your personal data is your consent, you also have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. However, withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing that we performed before your consent was withdrawn.
  10. The legal basis for our processing of your information is your consent, or that the processing is necessary to fulfill a contract. You may exercise your rights in relation to your personal information by written notice to us, in the methods listed below.
