Also, if we believe that the revealing is in consideration to (1) according to law, any possible orders or requests from the law enforcement or any process that is legal; (2) the protection or defending of any third party’s or Rachel Sunley, LLC’s property or rights; or (3) in case of protecting anyone’s safety, when any kind of violence is used against anyone including you.

Disclosure to Protect Abuse Victims. We have the right but hold no obligation, to disclose any information or content that you submitted to the Services if, in our opinion, we have suspicions that such information, in any case, violates a third party in any form of abuse. Abuse includes the following: elder and child abuse, spousal abuse, any form of neglect, or domestic violence. This information shall be revealed to authorities that are suitable for dealing with such problems. These authorities may include without limitation agencies for child protection, law enforcement agencies, or even court officials. You agree and understand that we are allowed to make this kind of disclosure.

Disclosure to Law Enforcement. We may disclose information to a law enforcement official as required by law, in compliance with a subpoena (with your written consent), court order, administrative order or similar document, for the purpose of identifying a suspect, material witness or missing person, in connection with the victim of a crime, in connection with a deceased person, in connection with the reporting of a crime in an emergency, or in connection with a crime on the premises.

Disclosure to Trusted Third Parties By Us. If we share your non-personally identifying information with any third party, be sure that your identity will not be revealed. Sometimes we may share your non-personally identifiable information with your personally identifiable information with service providers that may work with us. This is done so they can perform functions instead of us. For example, a customer care agent may need access to your information but only to perform services for you. All of these service providers will treat your information as private and confidential. All companies working for and with us must comply with our Privacy Policies and are not permitted to sell your information to third parties or to use it except as authorized by us and you, or as permitted or required by law.

You can choose to accept any such offer and then you have two options. You can choose to give the information regarding the offer you accepted directly to the third party or, we will provide your billing information to the third party user by pre-populating the registration forms of the offer. Keep in mind that your information will only be revealed if you accept the offer, once this is done you can’t quit the offer. If you wish to know how your information is being used go to the third party provider’s own privacy policy, it is on the offer pages. These offers may, if chosen, be presented on any Rachel Sunley, LLC website pages. Your information will be directly submitted to the third party. With this, you understand and agree that we shall not be held responsible or liable for any possible loss or violation of your information during your sharing information with the third party.

Disclosures With Your Authorization. Uses and disclosures not specifically permitted by applicable law will be made only with your written authorization, which may be revoked at any time, except to the extent that we have already made a use or disclosure based upon your authorization, such as signing up for our email list, which is administered through a third party, Get Oiling and Mail Chimp. 

Use by Children

We are committed to protecting the safety and privacy of children who visit our Website. We do not knowingly collect personal information online from children under 13 and have adopted techniques to ensure compliance with this Privacy Policy and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”). COPPA and its accompanying regulations under United States federal law protect the privacy of children using the Internet. Our Website includes content that may be unsuitable or confusing for children under 13 who are not monitored in the receipt and processing of such content by an adult. We encourage all parents to talk to their children about online safety and to monitor their children’s use of the Internet.

Visitors From Outside of the United States

Our Website and the servers that make this Website available worldwide are located in the United States. The Internet laws in the United States govern all matters relating to this Website. Any information you provide in subscribing to our Website or registering or ordering at our Website will be transferred to the United States.

General Data Protection Regulation

If you are in the European Union (EU), you have specific rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If you choose to provide us with information, you may ask us at any time to delete the information, with which we will comply in a reasonably timely manner if we have not independently chosen to delete the same information prior to your request. In either case, you will be advised accordingly. You may request a copy of any computer file compiling your information, to the extent we have collected it, and such file will be provided to you in a commercially reasonable period if it has not been previously deleted, as noted above. You may ask us not to process your data, or to share it with any entities that would do so. Please note, however, that there is no known sharing of any data by our company with third parties, and outside of the unlikely possibility of subpoena, other court order, or legally compliant government investigation, no desire to do so. If you have consented to the processing of your personal data, you may withdraw that consent at any time—though please note that processing that had occurred prior to such withdrawal would remain legal in retrospect. The information that is asked from you is intended only to fulfill the requirements to form a contract, and no additional information gathering or processing will be required than must be for that purpose. If you believe that our company has failed to adhere to your rights under the GDPR, you are entitled to file a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority.

Our company does not, to the extent that the term can be reasonably understood, engage in large-scale data collection or processing, and so does not have an appointed specialist Data Protection Officer or employ any representative physically located in the EU and designated as the point of contact for the EU government on these matters.
