Our website may, like most other websites, irrespective of whether or not you are a registered member, utilize “cookies” and other tracking technologies. Cookies are small text files constituting of alphanumeric numbers used to generate statistics regarding website activity at your end. These cookies help us analyze web traffic and help you by customizing the website to your preferences.

Cookies provide anonymized tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics. A cookie is placed on your machine but in no way gives us access to your computer. Still, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. However, some cookies may be essential for your satisfactory internet experience. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser.

5. Third-Party Access To Your Data

We don’t share your data with third-parties in a way so as to reveal any of your personal information like email, name, etc. The only exceptions to that rule are for partners we have to share limited data with in order to provide the services you expect from us.

6. Data Security

Data security is important to you, and to us. You are advised to create and maintain a strong password to help ensure the security of your account.

We use the SSL/HTTPS protocol throughout our site. This encrypts our user communications with the servers so that personal identifiable information is not captured/hijacked by third parties without authorization. However, in real-world, no security measures are leak-proof and we do not guarantee 100% security and do not take responsibility for unintentional data breaches despite taking all necessary measures. There is no absolute guarantee that your information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

However, as effective as these measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. In case of a data breach, system administrators will immediately take all needed steps to ensure system integrity, will contact affected users and will attempt to reset passwords if needed.

You may be advised to note that we may use an outside credit card processing company to bill you for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any other purpose.

7. Your Data Rights

You retain these and other lawful rights in relation to your data as provided under applicable law. These may include, inter alia the rights to:

  1. Access, confirm and review data provided by you;
  2. Edit data that may be inaccurate or irrelevant;
  3. Permanently delete and erase your data in our possession;
  4. Demand data we hold about you in a portable format;
  5. Object to or restrict any form of processing you may not be comfortable with.

You may simply edit your profile page by signing in and saving the updated version. These will be automatically and immediately reflected on the website. You may even permanently delete your account with us.

GDPR RIGHTS
Your privacy is critically important to us. We aim to support the GDPR standard.

All social media sharing links, either displayed as text links or social media icons do not connect you to any of the associated third parties unless you explicitly click on them. You may review the privacy policy and terms of service for each site before you visit them through third party links.

We may present links in a format that enables us to keep track of whether these links have been followed. We use this information to improve our customized content. Clicking on links may take you to sites outside our domain. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.

PUBLIC FORUMS

When you post or share your personal information such as comments, messages, files, photos, etc in the discussion forums, they enter the public domain and become available to anybody online. All such sharing of information is done at your own risk.

9. Releasing Your Data For Legal Purposes

At times it may become necessary or desirable to Avinaux, for legal purposes, to release your information in response to a request from a government agency or a private litigant. You agree that we may disclose your information to a third party where we believe, in good faith, that it is desirable to do so for the purposes of a civil action, criminal investigation, or other legal matter.

In the event that we receive a subpoena affecting your privacy, we may elect to notify you to give you an opportunity to file a motion to quash the subpoena, or we may attempt to quash it ourselves, but we are not obligated to do either.

You release us from any damages that may arise from or relate to the release of your information to a request from law enforcement agencies or private litigants. Any passing on of personal data for legal purposes will only be done in compliance with laws of the land.

DISCLOSURE AND SHARING OF INFORMATION

We do not disclose or share any information that we collect from you with third parties, save and except with your prior consent, or as per the procedure prescribed by law or in compliance with a legal obligation. You can rest assured that no Sensitive Information shall ever be published on this website.

TRANSFER OF INFORMATION

Any information provided by you including sensitive information will only be transferred to any other legal entity that ensures the same level of data protection as is provided in the Policy. Such a transfer is subject to a lawful contract between Avinaux and the third party or in a case where there is an express authorization for such a transfer to be effectuated. We may also share anonymous or aggregate information that does not reasonably identify you as an individual.

You are advised that once you make your Personal Information available to others online, it may be collected and used by the recipients or any other website visitor without restriction. You may wish to use a nickname or alias in your profile if you do not want your personal information shared with others in this way.

RETENTION OF DATA

All information provided by you, save and except upon withdrawal or termination, shall be retained as long as your account is created and for use in operational purposes only. We will delete information based on a request received from you within a reasonable period and latest within 90 days of receiving a deletion request.

We may also retain information which has been de-identified or aggregated such that it can no longer reasonably identify a particular individual. All retained personal information will remain subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Currently, we plan to retain user data while an account is active and for at least three years afterwards. We may alter this practice according to legal and business requirements. For example, we may lengthen the retention period for some data if needed to comply with the law or voluntary codes of conduct. Unless otherwise prohibited, we may shorten the retention period for some types of data if needed to free up storage space.

MESSAGES FROM US

We may, from time to time, send you an email regarding our products and services, or other third party products and services we think you may enjoy. You can unsubscribe from these mailings at any time.

LEGAL BASIS

The legal basis of these and other usage of your personal or non-personal data is primarily your informed consent, your ability to enter a contract, and the law of the land.
