4. Right of Personal Information Portability

In response to a request for disclosure, we must provide Personal Information in a readily useable format to enable you to transmit the Personal Information from us to another entity without hindrance. We will send your Personal Information in a .CSV format. This format is commonly used and machine-readable and enables the transmission of your Personal Information to another entity.

5. Choice Principle (Opt out)

We offer you the opportunity to choose (opt out) whether your Personal Information is

  • to be disclosed to a third party, or
  • to be used for a purpose that is materially different from the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you.

You may request an opt out from:

  • processing your email address to send you our marketing communication to your email address,
  • collecting your data by cookies. Read more in the Cookies Policy
  • any profiling being shared with third parties.

Your opt out request is effective upon execution, and it does not affect the lawfulness of the earlier processing. You can always opt out without detriment. It may, however, render you unable to use some of the features of the Platform or the Services which we may legally render only with your consent (e.g., receiving the newsletter on the new updates in our Resources).

You may opt out in one of the following ways:

  • by clicking “unsubscribe” in the email you received,
  • if you agreed to the use of cookies – in your browser settings,
  • as described in section Our contact details.

6. Non-Discrimination

In any time, we will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. According to that, unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  • Deny you goods or services.
  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
  • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your Personal Information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

7. Right to limit use and disclosure of sensitive Personal Information

You can direct us to only use your sensitive Personal Information (for example your precise geolocation data, contents of mail, email, and text messages) for limited purposes, such as providing you with the services you requested.

Limit the Use of My Sensitive Personal Information

IX. Other useful information

1. Do I have to provide GetResponse with my Personal Information?

Sometimes we ask you to provide us with your Personal Information. Providing:

  • Registration Information
  • Information provided as Account details, and
  • other data (indicated as mandatory) in registration forms

is essential for us to create your Account, send you the requested materials or enable you to participate in a chosen event. If you don’t provide us with the relevant Information, you will not be able to use some or all features of the Platform or Service. Providing us with Information other than the mandatory Information is voluntary.

2. How long do you store my Personal Information?

If you are our Customer and have self-service Account, we store your Personal Information for the time during which you have an Account with our Service. When you deactivate your self-service Account, we’ll store your Information for 60 days for the sole purpose of enabling you to reactivate the self-service Account. During that time, we’ll only store your Information without any other processing activities subject to our other obligations or rights arising from applicable laws or public authority orders. After that time, we’ll delete your Personal Information from the main database, without the possibility to recover it. In the next 120 days, your Personal Information will be subject to encryption and stored in backup copies only. The said 120-day period is required to delete the Personal Information completely due to the specifics of the backup copy operations.

If the Customer has MAX or MAX2 Account, we store your Personal Information for the time during which you have an Account with our Service. When you deactivate your MAX or MAX2 Account, we’ll store your Personal Information for 30 days for the sole purpose of enabling you to reactivate the MAX or MAX2 Account. During that time, we’ll only store your data without any other processing activities subject to our other obligations or rights arising from applicable laws or public authority orders. After that time, we’ll delete your Personal Information from the main database, without the possibility to recover it. In the next 7 days, your Personal Information will be subject to encryption and stored in backup copies only. The said 7-day period is required to delete the Personal Information completely due to the specifics of the backup copy operations.

We’ll store the Personal Information of the Users who are not our Customers for the time corresponding to the lifecycles of the cookie files saved on their devices. You will find the details of how we use cookies in our Cookies Policy.

We’ll store the Personal Information of our newsletter subscribers or persons who have agreed to receive marketing content from us until they resign.

After expiration of the periods described above, your Information will be erased, excluding the following data:

  • name,
  • surname,
  • email address,
  • Service usage history,
  • and information about expressed consents.

We’ll store this Information only for as long as we need to handle complaints and manage claims related to the use of the Service, and to the limited, necessary extent for as long as is required by tax and accounting regulations.

3. Why do I enter into a data processing agreement with GetResponse?

If GDPR applies to your processing of Personal Data, because:

  • you offer goods or services (paid or free-of-charge) to data subjects in the EEA; or
  • you monitor behaviour of such data subjects,

you engage GetResponse in the processing of the Personal Data necessary to provide you with the Service on terms and conditions stipulated in the Terms of Service or Data Processing Agreement, which constitutes an integral part of these Terms.

4. Does GetResponse process Personal Information of children?

We do not process Personal Information of children. The Service and Platform are directed to adults, i.e., those who are over 18 (eighteen) years old and those who perform commercial activities. When you start using the Platform or Service, you declare that you are over 18 years old. We ask minors not to share any information with us, especially Personal Information. If we learn that we have collected or received Personal Information from a minor, we will delete that Personal Information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a minor, please contact us via a form available here.

5. How does GetResponse protect my Personal Data?

We take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect your Personal Information from less, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. The Platform uses encrypted data transmission (SSL, secure socket layer) during registration and login, which guarantees the protection of the Information identifying you and significantly impedes account data interception by unauthorized systems or people.

Still, no system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have questions about the security of your Personal Information, or if you have reason to believe that the Personal Information that we hold about you is no longer secure, please contact us immediately as described in this Privacy Policy.

More about security.

Interactions with these features are governed by the privacy notices of the social media companies that provide them.

7. Mobile messages

No mobile information will be sold or shared with third parties or affiliates for marketing or promotional purposes. All the above categories exclude text messaging originator opt-in data and consent; this information will not be sold or shared with any third parties.
