5. What Are Your Rights Regarding Your Personal Data?
We respect your right to access and control your personal data. You have choices about the data we collect. When you are asked to provide personal data that is not necessary for the purposes of providing you with our Services, you may decline.

Access to personal data: In some jurisdictions, you have the right to request access to your personal data. In these cases, we will comply, subject to any relevant legal requirements and exemptions, including identity verification procedures. Before providing data to you, we will ask for proof of identity and sufficient information about your interaction with us so that we can locate any relevant data. We may also charge you a fee for providing you with a copy of your data (except where this is not permissible under local law).

Correction and deletion: In some jurisdictions, you have the right to correct or amend your personal data if it is inaccurate or requires updating. You may also have the right to request deletion of your personal data. Please note that such a request could be refused because your personal data is required to provide you with the products or services you requested, e.g. to deliver a product or send an invoice to your email address, or that it is required by the applicable law.

Portability: If you reside within the European Union, you have the right to ask for a copy of your personal data and/or ask for it to be ported to another provider of your choice. Please note that such a request could be limited to the only personal data you provided us with or that we hold at that given time and subject to any relevant legal requirements and exemptions, including identity verification procedures. If we provide the information, it will only be provided to you and we are not responsible for any service or assistance in porting the information to another provider and do not warrant that the information can be ported into another providers systems.

Marketing preferences: If you have provided us with your contact information, we may, subject to any applicable Spam Act or similar regulation, contact you via email, postal mail or telephone about N1D services and events that may be of interest to you, including newsletters, bulletins, alerts, etc.

Any email newsletters, bulletins, or alerts you receive from N1D will provide an unsubscribe link allowing you to opt-out of receiving future email newsletters, bulletins or alerts or to change your contact preferences.

6. How Do you Opt-Out of Personal Information Sharing with Our Business Partners?
We may use third party analytics vendors to evaluate and provide us with information about the use of our Services and viewing of our content. Some of the information you see on our Sites may be customized based on automated predictions about your interests, which predictions are generated from your visits over time and across different websites, using tools such as Google Analytics. This information allows us to create content of greater interest to you and can also be used to serve ads based on your past visits to our Sites. Note that you can opt out of a third-party vendor's use of cookies, including use by Google, by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page (http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices).

For more information about how targeted Network Advertising works, please visit: http://www.youradchoices.com or http://www.networkadvertising.org/understanding-online-advertising.

You may opt-out of third party targeted advertising or analytics in two ways: 1) By directly notifying a Network Advertising service provider via its opt-out tools (please see above), or 2) using your browser’s Do Not Track (DNT) settings to indicate that you do not wish to receive targeted advertising based on your overall internet usage. For more information about DNT and how it works, please visit the Future of Privacy Forum’s website: http://www.allaboutdnt.com.

We will make a good faith reasonable effort to honor your DNT browser settings for opting out of receiving targeted third party advertising based on your overall Internet usage. Please note that various browsers frequently update technology or change their settings and business practices without advance notice, and we may not have the latest information on how to honor your preferences. If you exercise either opt-out option – the cookie opt-out or the browser opt-out – you will continue to receive advertising, but such advertising may not relate to your specific interests or search history.

You cannot opt-out of our contextual analytics and advertising, which is based on your usage of only our Services. We will continue to serve you contextual advertising. We will also continue to monitor your usage and search or transaction history to provide us with analytics on how well our Services, features, and activities are functioning and used. We will also share this information in an aggregated or anonymized form (meaning that no one individual person can be identified) within N1D.

Transferring personal data from the EU to the US or other jurisdictions
N1D has its headquarters in Michigan, USA. Personal data we collect from you will be processed in the United States. The United States has not sought nor received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 45 of the GDPR. Thus, N1D relies on derogations for specific situations as set forth in Article 49 of the GDPR. In particular, N1D collects and transfers to the United States personal data only: with your consent; to perform a contract with you; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of N1D in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms. N1D endeavors to apply suitable safeguards to protect the privacy and security of your personal data and to use it only consistent with your relationship with N1D and the practices described in this Privacy Policy. N1D also minimizes the risk to your rights and freedoms by not collecting or storing sensitive information about you, whenever possible.
