You do not have a statutory or contractual obligation to provide us with your information; however, if you do not provide us with your information, we may not be able to provide you with the services you have requested or you may be limited in your use of our Website (e.g., if you do not provide us with your email address, we will not be able to communicate with you for either transactional or).
- HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We may use your information for the following purposes:

LightOn SAS may disclose and/or share your information to or with any non-affiliated third parties under the following circumstances:
Consent: We may disclose your information to any third parties based on your consent to do so.
Protection of LightOn SAS and others: By using the Website, you acknowledge, consent and agree that we may access, preserve and disclose your information, including, but not limited to, any user content, if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access, preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with legal process; (b) enforce this Policy, or other contracts with you, including investigation of potential violations thereof; (c) respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third parties; (d) respond to your requests for customer service; and/or (e) protect the rights, property or personal safety of LightOn SAS, its agents and affiliates, and/or the public.

- LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA
Our legal grounds for processing your personal data are as follows:
Legitimate Interests: In many cases, we handle personal data on the grounds that it furthers our legitimate interests in commercial activities such as the following in ways that are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected individuals:
- Customer service
- Protecting our customers, personnel, and property
- Analyzing and improving our business
- Managing legal issues
Legal Compliance: We need to use and disclose personal data in certain ways to comply with our legal obligations.
Consent: Where required by law, and in some other cases, we handle personal data on the basis of consent. Where we handle your personal data on the basis of consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Such withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing performed before you withdraw your consent.
- YOUR RIGHTS AND CHOICES
If you have provided contact information through the Website and decide that you do not want LightOn to use that information in accordance with this Policy, you can opt-out of future use at any time by contacting us as described below.
Individuals in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and many other jurisdictions have certain legal rights to obtain confirmation of whether we hold personal data about them, to access personal data we hold about them, and to obtain its correction, update, amendment, or deletion in appropriate circumstances. You may also have rights to object to our handling of your personal data, restrict our processing of your personal data, and to withdraw any consent you have provided. You also have the right to give directives on the processing of your data after your death and to data portability, which allows you to obtain your personal data for your own purposes or to ask the transfer of your personal data to another organization. To exercise these rights, please contact us, as described below, with the nature of your request. Our security procedures mean that we may request proof of identity before we reveal information. This proof of identity will typically take the form of your e-mail address and any password submitted upon registration. While we strongly encourage you to first raise any questions or concerns about your personal data with us, you also have a right to contact the relevant supervisory authority.
Many of the rights described here are subject to significant limitations and exceptions under applicable law (e.g., objections to the processing of personal data, and withdrawals of consent, typically will not have retroactive effect).
- DATA RETENTION
We will keep your information only for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purpose that it has been processed, taking into account any legal requirements under Applicable Law. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Information may persist in copies made for backup and business continuity purposes for additional time.
- TRANSFERS OF YOUR INFORMATION OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA
We may transfer your information outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or to an international organisation in the unlikely event that we are required to comply with legal obligations to which we are subject (compliance with a court order, for example). Where we are required to do so, we will ensure appropriate safeguards and protections are in place.
- THIRD-PARTY LINKS AND SERVICES
The Website may also include widgets and social media features, which are interactive mini-programs that provide specific services from another company (e.g., displaying the news, opinions, music, etc.). Information such as your email address may be collected through these features. These features may collect your IP address and set cookies to enable them to function properly. We are not responsible for nor do we endorse the privacy practices or the content of such third party services. Any information you provide via those services is subject to their applicable privacy policies and is not covered by this Policy.
- INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN
The Website is not directed to children under the age of 15 and such children are not permitted to use the Website. If we discover we have received any “personal information” from a child under the age of 15 in violation of this Policy, we will take reasonable steps to delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe we have any information from or about anyone under the age of 15, please contact us as described below.
- CHANGES TO THIS POLICY
We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time to reflect changes in the law, our data collection, and use practices, the features of our Website, or advances in technology. Please check this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of changes to this Policy will mean you accept those changes.
