|Purposes of the data processing

If other legal grounds are applicable to a specific case, you will be informed immediately.
|Categories of the data recipients
|The only recipients of your data will be the company, Science Bits, and the other companies of the group and the professionals who provide service to us by virtue of a contract as data processors. In each case, the personnel of these companies will have access to the data where required.
Public or legal authorities may also eventually have access to your data if they require it to carry out their duties.
|Categories of personal data
Based on the specific case, we can collect the following types of user data:
|The source of the data
|The user data that the company holds has been obtained either:
|International data transfer
|All US customer data stored in the US is managed according to the GDPR and EU data protection laws as the European Commission has determined that the US does not require the same level of data protection as the European Union.
Where personal data is transferred to the US based on SCCs, the company will take into account the circumstances surrounding the transfer and any supplementary measures that demonstrate that the US law does not impinge on the promise of adequate data protection set forth in the SCCs. If legally permissible, we may rely on your express consent to transfer your personal data rather than the SCCs. In some cases, personal data may also be requested, stored or transferred to the US in other ways permitted under the laws of the European Union and Privacy Shield 2.0.
In the event your personal data is transferred, if you would like to request the specific safeguards applied to the export of your personal data, if applicable, you may send your request to us at [email protected].
|Data storage period
|Your data will be stored the necessary amount of time to comply with the purpose for which said data was obtained unless you withdraw your consent beforehand, never exceeding the legally established limits. If required by law or by a legal order, we may process and store your personal data for a longer period consistent with the law or legal order or our contractual rights. For example, we may need to keep your personal data longer if necessary to fulfill obligations to preserve records under tax law or for accounting purposes, or if we are obligated to hold personal data because of a legal prohibition against removing or deleting it.
The data may later be stored with the mere purpose of providing a response to future requests from a competent authority.
The privacy of those who visit this website is important to us. We support the goals and guidelines set forth by oversight laws and bodies such as:

6. MAKING A VERIFIED CONSUMER REQUEST TO US
To make a request to exercise your rights under the CCPA as described above, please submit a verifiable request to us by sending an email to us at [email protected] and include the phrase «CCPA Request» within the header of your email.
A verifiable consumer request must be made by you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State whom you have authorized to make the request on your behalf. (A representative must be authorized by you in writing or have a valid power of attorney under California probate law.) You may also make a verifiable request to us on behalf of your minor child.
To be considered a proper verified request, your request must:
- (1) provide us with sufficient information allowing us to reasonably verify that you are the same person about whom we collected the personal information or the authorized representative, and
- (2) describe your request in reasonable detail so we can correctly understand, evaluate, and respond to the request.
We may ask you for additional information, if needed, in order to verify your request, but if we do, we will use such additional information only to verify your identity (or the authority of the representative) and for security and fraud-prevention purposes.
We may also ask you to separately confirm any request to delete personal information via your website account or through another means.
7. RESPONDING TO YOUR VERIFIABLE CONSUMER REQUEST
We will use reasonable efforts to respond to your verifiable consumer request within 45 days of receiving it. In some cases, we may require more time (up to 90 days). If that is the case, we will communicate to you in writing (by postal mail or electronically, at your option) the reason and the length of anticipated delay. We will not be able to fulfill your request if we cannot verify your identity (or the authority of your representative) and confirm that the personal information subject to the request relates to you.
Disclosures we provide in response to a verified consumer request will cover only the 12-month period before we received the request. If your request involves the porting of your personal information, we will use a format that is reasonably designed to allow you to transmit the information to another entity. If we deny part or all of a verified consumer request, we will provide a reasonable explanation for the denial.
We do not charge fees for responding to verifiable consumer requests unless they are excessive, repetitive or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that a fee is appropriate, we will provide you with an explanation and a cost estimate before we complete your request.
