7. Notice and Ability to Opt Out / Opt In

When Personal Data is collected, we typically inform the individual at the point of collection or upon our first communication to the individual the purpose for the collection and where appropriate, allow the individual to elect whether to provide the information to Mutare and/or specify how we can use such personal information.

Mutare provides individuals who elect to receive electronic or other communications the ability to “opt-out” of those communications by sending us a notice to unsubscribe. In some cases, when applicable, Mutare will provide an individual with the opportunity to “opt-in.” This means that we will require affirmative action from the individual to indicate his/her consent before we use personal information for purposes other than the purpose for which the personal information was submitted.

8. Children Under the Age of 13

Our website is not intended for children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us as instructed in the Contact and Opt-Out Information sections.

9. Data Security

While no systems are completely secure, we have established administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and appropriate availability of your Personal Data.   The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Additionally, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website.

12. GDPR Compliance

We adhere to applicable data protection laws in the European Union (“EU”) to the extent applicable.  In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), users who are located in the EU have the right to:  (i) access personal information; (ii) rectify / erase personal information; (iii) restrict the processing of your personal information; (iv) transfer your personal information; (v) object to the processing of personal information; (vi) object to how we use your personal information for direct marketing purposes; (vii) obtain a copy of personal information safeguards used for transfers outside your jurisdiction; and (viii) lodge a complaint with your local supervisory authority.  You can exercise your rights by contacting us. Subject to legal and other permissible considerations, we will make reasonable efforts to honor your request promptly or inform you if we require further information in order to fulfil your request.

We may transfer, store, and process information that we collect about you, as described in this Policy, in the United States, which may not provide the same level of protection for your personal information as your home country. In addition, we may further transfer your information outside the United States for the purposes described in this Policy. By submitting any personal information or by using the Website and without limitation to any other rights or obligations we have, you consent to such transfer to, and processing in, the United States and these other countries, and acknowledge that your information may be subject to access by law enforcement and other government entities, including courts and tribunals, in accordance with laws applicable in those jurisdictions.  Where personal information that we collect is transferred to and processed in the United States or anywhere else outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) for the purposes described in this Policy, we will take steps to ensure that the information receives the same level of protection as if it remained within the EEA, including entering into data transfer agreements, using the EU Commission approved Standard Contractual Clauses, or by relying on certification schemes such as the EU – US Privacy Shield. You may have a right to details of the mechanisms under which your data is transferred outside the EEA.
We retain personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the transactions you have requested or other purposes to which you have consented, or for other necessary purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes and enforcing our agreements.  Because these factors vary for different types of personal data, actual retention periods may vary.
