Privacy is very important to us here at Cerenade. We want to make your experience with us as easy and valuable as possible. We want you to use the Internet’s vast array of information, tools, and opportunities with complete confidence.
Cerenade collects information in different ways from Users who access the various parts of our services and products. We use this information primarily to provide you a customized experience as you use our services and products.
Registration (information we collect)
Users are asked to provide certain personal information such as name, law firm, address, and telephone number when they sign-up for our services. The personal information collected from Users during the registration process is used to manage each user’s account (such as for billing purposes).
If you order products directly from Cerenade, we will use the personal information you provide only to process that order.
It is Cerenade’s policy not to use or share the personal information about Users in ways unrelated to the ones described above. However, Cerenade may disclose personal information about Users, or information regarding your use of the services or web sites accessible through our services, for any reason if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so. For example, we may be required to disclose an individual’s personal information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. Also, we may disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Acceptable Use Policy or other user policies; to operate the services properly; or to protect Cerenade and our Users.
Sharing Data with Third Party Agents
We actively utilize the services of credit card processors and web-hosting service providers who act as our agents to consummate our business relationship with individuals. All third party agents are contractually bound to extend the same level of data security we articulate in this policy. As previously stated, we do not share any personal data with non-agent third parties or permit that information to be used for reasons other than those for which it was originally provided. If this practice should change in the future, we will update this policy to identify those non agent entities as well as the purpose for data sharing. We will also provide individuals with opt-out or opt-in, as appropriate, choice regarding the sharing of their data.
Data that we gather, with the exception of credit card information (ie, name, email, phone number, and address) will be retained indefinitely in the event of future return clients and/or internal marketing endeavors. Regarding credit card information, when a client retains Cerenade’s services, data is entered into the system, and then encrypted for protection. If a client decides to end services with Cerenade, this credit card information is then deleted from Cerenade’s servers.
Data Services and websites we sponsor have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. While we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally obtaining this information. In the event that there is a data breach on our servers, we will notify our users of said breach within 72 hours.
In order to use and interact with the electronic forms that are available in Cerenade Services, users will be prompted to install the latest Form Filler to their PCs. Installation of Multimedia Abacus Form Filler is safe and requires modifications to the registry of the user’s PC. Cerenade is in compliance with California Consumer Protection Against Spyware Act.
How to Access or Modify Your Personal Profile
Pursuant to the Privacy Shield frameworks, Users have the right to access, modify, or delete their personal data that is incorrect or has been handled in violation of the Privacy Shield Principles. Cerenade extends this ability to individuals to change or erase their personal data at their own discretion via on-screen links. If you have questions on how to access, modify, or delete your information please contact our Support Department at (310)645-0598 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Certification
What is Privacy Shield?
Via PrivacyShield.Gov: “The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework was designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce and European Commission to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce. On July 12, the European Commission deemed the Privacy Shield Framework adequate to enable data transfers under EU law (see the adequacy determination).
The Privacy Shield program, which is administered by the International Trade Administration (ITA) within the U.S. Department of Commerce, enables U.S.-based organizations to join the Privacy Shield Framework in order to benefit from the adequacy determination…While joining the Privacy Shield Framework is voluntary, once an eligible organization makes the public commitment to comply with the Framework’s requirements, the commitment will become enforceable under U.S. law.”
While Cerenade does not currently share User information with third parties, Cerenade will adhere to Privacy Shield principles when it comes to liability. If in the future, Cerenade’s business model changes and User information is shared with third parties, Cerenade will provide individuals with notice and a choice to opt out of unauthorized use or sharing of their information. Data will only be processed for limited and specified purposes that will be outlined between the third party and Cerenade. Furthermore, Cerenade will enter into a contract that requires third parties to adhere to the same level of protection as the Privacy Shield principles. In cases of onward transfer to third parties of data of EU individuals received pursuant to the EU-US Privacy Shield, Cerenade is potentially liable.
