The Way We Use Information

We use the information you provide about yourself when placing a request for a Service to provide you with the Service. We use email addresses to answer the email we receive and to process your request. We use phone numbers to contact you to follow up on your request. We may also use the information you provide to further contact you to discuss your interest in our company, the Services that we provide, and send you information regarding our company and partners such a promotions and events. We do not share any of this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to provide the Service (for instance, a request for information pertaining to a SEMPCheck partner).

 

We may use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and advertising campaigns, but we do not share any information with advertising or marketing firms that could disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.

 

Sharing and Disclosure of Information

SEMPCheck does not sell or rent your Personal Information to marketers or third parties.

 

We may share your Personal Information with trusted third parties who are integral to the operation of our Website and Services including SEMPCheck partners, payment processors, verification services, as well as any third parties that you have directly authorized to receive your Personal Information.

 

We may store your Personal Information in locations outside the direct control of SEMPCheck, for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers.

 

We may disclose your Personal Information to law enforcement, government officials, or other third parties if we are compelled to do so by subpoena, court order or other legal process. We must do so to comply with laws, statutes, rules or regulations, or if we believe in good faith that the disclosure is necessary to prevent physical harm or financial loss, to report suspected illegal activity, or to investigate violations of our terms and conditions.

Our Commitment to Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

 

Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 18, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 18. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected personal Information for a child under 18, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.

 

Online Forums

The Website may make chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available to its users. These are public venues and any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose information on these venues.

 

We do not want to receive confidential or proprietary information from you through these online forums or other areas of our Website. Please note that any information or material sent to us will be deemed NOT to be confidential. By sending us any information or material, you grant us an unrestricted, irrevocable license to use, reproduce, display, perform, modify, transmit and distribute those materials or information, and you also agree that we are free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques that you send us for any purpose. However, we will not release your name or company’s name or otherwise publicize the fact that you submitted materials or other information to us unless: (a) we obtain your permission to do so, (b) we first notify you with the materials or other information you submit to a particular part of this Website will be published or otherwise used with your identifying information on it; or (c) we are required to do so by law.

 

Third Party Vendor Advertising

EU Data Protection Directive Considerations

European Union (EU) law allows personal data to flow outside the EU only if there is an adequate level of protection in the country of destination or if a number of specific exceptions apply. On December 20, 2001, the European Commission recognized that the Canadian Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) provides adequate protection for certain personal data transferred from the EU to Canada. This will allow EU operators to send certain personal data to recipients in Canada subject to the Canadian Act, without additional safeguards being needed to meet the requirements of the EU Data Protection Directive.

California Consumer Privacy Act Considerations

This Privacy Notice applies to SEMPCheck’s collection and use of United States Residents’ Personal Information, particularly where such use or collection is governed by the California Consumer Privacy Act. Although the CCPA applies to Personal Information of individuals that are residents of California, SEMPCheck may as a courtesy extend some of the CCPA’s requirements to the Personal Information of residents of the United States of America more broadly.

 

Please read this Privacy Notice carefully because it provides important information and explains your rights. Please visit this website from time to time, as we may update our notice for changes in the law or our data practices. If you have any questions or concerns, or wish to exercise your privacy rights, we invite you to contact us by any of the methods listed at the bottom of this Privacy Notice.
If you have provided your Personal Information to SEMPCheck when communicating or transacting with us on behalf of your employer or another business, you can exercise the following rights:

 

Your Right to Request Disclosure Of Information We Collect And Share About You
We are committed to ensuring that you know what information we collect about you. You can submit a request to us for the following information, with respect to Personal Information we have collected:

  • The categories of Personal Information we’ve collected about you.

  • The categories of sources from which we collected the Personal Information.

  • The third parties with whom we shared the information.

  • The specific pieces of information we collected.

 

Your Right to Ask Us Not To Sell Your Personal Information
SEMPCheck does not sell or rent your Personal Information to marketers or third parties.

 

We Are Committed to Honoring Your Rights
We are committed to providing Consumers control over their Personal Information. If you exercise any of the rights explained in this Privacy Notice, we will continue to treat you fairly.

 

How do we keep your Personal Information secure?
We implement and maintain reasonable security appropriate to the nature of the personal information that we collect, use, retain, transfer or otherwise process. Our reasonable security program is implemented and maintained in accordance with applicable law and relevant standards as outlined in the report issued by the California Attorney General in February 2016, available at https://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/agweb/pdfs/dbr/2016-data-breach-report.pdf. Specifically, among other safeguards, our reasonable security program implements and maintains all 20 of the Center for Internet Security’s Critical Security Controls for Effective Cyber Defense identified in Appendix A of the California Attorney General Report. As noted in that report, “there is no perfect security,” and reasonable security is a process that involves risk management rather than risk elimination. While we are committed to developing, implementing, maintaining, monitoring and updating a reasonable information security program, no such program can be perfect; in other words, all risk cannot reasonably be eliminated. Data security incidents and breaches can occur due to vulnerabilities, criminal exploits or other factors that cannot reasonably be prevented. Accordingly, while our reasonable security program is designed to manage data security risks and thus help prevent data security incidents and breaches, it cannot be assumed that the occurrence of any given incident or breach results from our failure to implement and maintain reasonable security.

 

Requests for Specific Pieces of Personal Information
We will ask you for at least three pieces of Personal Information and endeavor to match those to information we maintain about you. Additionally, we require that you provide a declaration attesting to your identity, signed under penalty of perjury.
If we are unable to verify your identity with the degree of certainty required, we will not be able to respond to the request. We will notify you to explain the basis of the denial. Additionally, we will treat the request as one seeking disclosure of the categories of Personal Information we have collected about you and endeavor to verify your identity using the less-stringent standards applicable to such requests.

Requests for Categories of Personal Information Collected About You
We will ask you for at least two pieces of Personal Information and endeavor to match those to information we maintain about you.
If we are unable to verify your identity with the degree of certainty required, we will not be able to respond to the request. We will notify you to explain the basis of our denial.
