Your Privacy Rights

Your Privacy Rights

Fentime users from around the world use our products to bring clarity to their work. Regardless of what country you’re located in, we respect your ability to know, access, correct, export, restrict the processing of, and delete your information, and have extended those rights globally. We will not discriminate against you for exercising your privacy rights.

Information about your rights

Upon your request, and subject to applicable legal exceptions, we will:

  • provide access to and/or a copy of certain information we hold about you

  • provide you with information about categories of information we collect or disclose about you, the categories of sources of such information, the business or commercial purpose for collecting your information, and the categories of third parties to which we disclose your information. For your convenience and so you don’t have to request it, we’ve included that information in this Privacy Statement.

  • prevent the processing of your information for promotional purposes (including any direct marketing processing based on profiling)

  • update information which is out of date or incorrect

  • delete certain information which we have about you

  • restrict the way that we process and disclose some of your information

  • transfer your information to a third party provider of services

If you request these rights, we will need to verify your identity and may need to verify your relationship with Fentime (for example, if you’re an administrator of an Fentime organization, division, or workspace and you’re making a request on behalf of another individual) for security and to prevent fraud.  You may be able to designate an authorized agent to make requests on your behalf. In order for an authorized agent to be verified, the authorized agent must present signed, written permission to make such requests or a power of attorney. We may also contact you to verify your identity before processing the authorized agent’s request.

We may take additional steps to verify that you are authorized to make the request. If you are an end user of Fentime’s services and not a direct customer of Fentime (for example, your company uses Fentime and you’re an employee or authorized representative of that company), you should direct requests relating to your information to the administrator of your company’s Fentime account. We will redirect you to your administrator or notify the administrator directly.

Please note, however, that certain information may be exempt from such requests in some circumstances (for example, if we need to keep processing your information for our legitimate interests or to comply with a legal obligation). Depending on applicable law, you may have the right to appeal our decision to deny your request. If we deny your request, we will provide you with information on how to appeal the decision, if applicable, in our communications with you.
