THE CONNECTION BETWEEN US LAWS AND EU GDPR
As a US-based website, “Privacy” is not even a part of Constitution. However, as per EU GDPR, if a US-based website is performing a target marketing then they will be accountable for the privacy of the visitors directed from any EU country. Despite not having a physical presence in any of the EU countries, we are still obliged to keep privacy concerns clear for all the visitors – approached through targeted marketing. It is a due consideration because our website is visible to users across the globe and personal data is recorded from individuals from different countries. For example, if a German-speaking user uses Google and finds our website on the internet within the States and fills in his/her information then this doesn’t fall under the EU GDPR. However, if we perform a proposed marketing in the native language of the user, then this will be considered as targeted marketing, and we as a company will be obliged to protect the privacy rights of the user as per EU GDPR.
Retention period refers to the time period for which we keep your data stored on our servers. We retain the personally identified information of users for a time period of 5 years.
