Our business purposes for collecting and using information include the following:
Sharing of Information
For example, we use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site. You can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en
We also share your information with agents, contractors, and other service providers in connection with their work on our behalf (collectively "Service Providers"). Our Service Providers only receive your information if such information is needed to perform their function(s), and they are not authorized to use such information for any other purpose(s) other than the purpose(s) set forth by Nikola Valenti. We only provide Service Providers with the information necessary to complete the requested service, product, or transaction. We contractually prohibit them from retaining, using, or disclosing information about you for any purpose other than performing the services for us. Notwithstanding the above, we may permit our Service Providers to use aggregate information which does not identify you or de-identified data for other purposes. We also share your personal information to enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements, including for billing and collection purposes, or if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or Safety of Nikola Valenti, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant, or other lawful requests for information we receive, or to protect our rights otherwise.
We may also share your information with a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of Nikola Valenti’s assets, whether as a going concern or as a part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by Nikola Valenti about or Site users is among the assets transferred.
Your Rights and Choices
You may access, update, or remove certain account information you voluntarily submitted to us through the Service. If you would like to update or revise the information in your account, you may do so through your account or by contacting us at email@example.com. We may require additional information from you to confirm your identity. Please note that we will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. If you delete your User Contributions from the Site, copies of your User Contributions may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or might have been copied or stored by other Site users. Proper access and use of information provided on the Website, including User Contributions, is governed by our Terms of Service. California residents and data subjects in Europe have additional rights as outlined in the sections entitled "Additional Disclosures for California Residents" and "Additional Disclosures for Data Subjects in Europe" below.
Do Not Track. Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a "Do Not Track" signal to online services you visit. Note, however, there is no industry consensus as to what website and application operators should do about these signals. Accordingly, unless and until the law is interpreted to require us to do so, we do not monitor or take action with respect to "Do Not Track" signals or other mechanisms. For more information on "Do Not Track", visit https://allaboutdnt.com/.
You can opt out of Google's use of your Personal Information in connection with Google Analytics through cookies by visiting https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and downloading the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
Some of the other parties that collect information from or about you on the Service to provide more relevant advertising to you may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA") Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. This program offers a centralized location where users can make choices about using their information for online behavioral advertising. To learn more about the DAA and opt-out options for their members, please visit aboutads.info/choices. In addition, some of these other parties may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI"). To learn more about the NAI and opt-out options for their members, please visit networkadvertising.org/choices. If you are in the EU, please visit the EU online choices page at www.youronlinechoices.com. Please note that if you opt-out using any of these methods, the opt-out will only apply to the specific browser or device from which you opt-out. Further, opting out only means that the selected members should no longer deliver certain Interest-Based Advertising to you. Still, it does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g. from other ad networks) or non-targeted ads.
Please be aware that if you disable or remove Online Technologies, some parts of the Service may not function correctly. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any other parties opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs.
To opt out of receiving e-mail promotions from Nikola Valenti, please follow the unsubscribe instructions in our promotional e-mail correspondence or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that opting out of promotional communications from Nikola Valenti does not affect our non-promotional communications with you, including those related to your account, orders placed with Nikola Valenti, or our ongoing business relations.
Data security and retention
We implement and maintain reasonable administrative, physical, and technical security safeguards to help protect your information from loss, theft, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Despite our measures, transmission via the Internet is not completely secure, and we cannot guarantee the security of your information.
When you place an order through the Site, we will maintain and retain your Personal Information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information, until it is no longer required for us to provide you any Services or communications to you, or otherwise permitted by law.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Site like message boards. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Site.

Right to Know and Data Portability

Once we receive your request and confirm your identity (see Exercising your Rights to Know or Delete), we will disclose to you:
We do not provide a right to know or data portability disclosure for B2B personal information.
Right to Delete
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions (the "right to delete"). Once we receive your request and confirm your identity (see Exercising Your Rights to Know or Delete), we will review your request to see if an exception allowing us to retain the information applies. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
We will delete or deidentify personal information not subject to one of these exceptions from our records and will direct our service providers to take similar action.
We do not provide these deletion rights for B2B personal information.
Exercising Your Rights to Know or Delete
To exercise your rights to know or delete described above, please submit a request by either:
Emailing us at email@example.com or visiting https://www.NikolaValenti.com
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a request to know or delete related to your personal information.
You may also make a request to know or delete on behalf of your child by informing us we have such information and requesting to delete such information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may only submit a request to know twice within a 12-month period. Your request to know or delete must:
Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, which may include:
Providing copies of identification cards that match our records
Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.
You do not need to create an account with us to submit a request to know or delete. However, we do consider requests made through your password protected account sufficiently verified when the request relates to personal information associated with that specific account.
We will only use personal information provided in the request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make it.
Response Timing and Format
We will confirm receipt of your request within ten (10) business days. If you do not receive confirmation within the 10-day timeframe, please contact us at email@example.com.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
