We may also share certain Personal Information with third parties (as described in this Section and in Section V below).
We share your Personal Information with third parties as described below.
In certain situations, businesses or third party websites we’re affiliated with may sell items or provide services to you through a website (either alone or jointly with us). You can recognize when an affiliated business is associated with such a transaction or service, and we will share your Personal Information with that affiliated business only to the extent that it is related to such transaction or service. We have no control over the policies and practices of third party websites as to privacy or anything else, so if you choose to enter into such transaction or to receive such service, please review the applicable third party websites’ policies.
We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and may need to share your Personal Information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, our agents and service providers do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. We acknowledge our potential liability if our agents misuse your Personal Information.
We may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Also, if we (or substantially all of our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, Personal Information would be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.
Flappingoodtale does not sell Personal Information.
For further information about the specific legal basis or bases permitting Flappingoodtale to collect and use your Personal Information, please contact Flappingoodtale at email@example.com.
Except upon the request of an individual, as explained in Section VIII below, and except as the law permits and requires, Flappingoodtale determines the retention period for Personal Information based on the following criteria:
· The nature of our relationship with you;
· The nature of the Personal Information in question; and
· Our business needs.
Except where permitted or required by Privacy Laws, you have the following rights regarding Flappingoodtale’s collection and use of your Personal Information.

If you request that your Personal Information be erased or deleted or that Flappingoodtale otherwise restrict its collection and use of Personal Information, Flappingoodtale may terminate or limit your access to the Websites and Services. If Flappingoodtale has not collected or used your Personal Information, or has not disclosed your Personal Information to another party, Flappingoodtale will inform you of that in response to any of the above requests. Some information may remain in Flappingoodtale’s backup media after erasure or deletion for a period of time. When you request that Flappingoodtale update information, Flappingoodtale may retain a copy of the unrevised information in Flappingoodtale’s records. Flappingoodtale also may use any anonymized aggregated statistical data derived from or incorporating Personal Information after it is updated, erased, or deleted, but not in a manner that would identify you.
We will confirm receipt of all such requests, provide information about how Flappingoodtale will process the request, and substantively respond to all such requests consistent with the Privacy Laws. There may be a delay in processing a request while we verify that the request is valid and originates from you as opposed to an unauthorized third party. Our verification process varies based on the source and nature of the request, but may include: comparing data in the request against Personal Information we retain; contacting you using other contact information; requesting further information, although we will avoid doing so to the extent possible; and the consideration of certain factors, including the type, sensitivity, and value of your Personal Information, the risk of harm to you posed by an unauthorized request, the likelihood that fraudulent or malicious actors would seek your Personal Information, the manner in which we interact with you, the available technology, and whether the information you have provided to verify your identity is sufficiently robust to protect against fraudulent requests. To the extent permitted by the Privacy Laws, Flappingoodtale retains the right to deny any request if we cannot verify that it originated from you.
Flappingoodtale retains records of all of the above requests and our responses as required by the Privacy Laws.
When you update information, we may maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records. Please note that some information may remain in our private records after your deletion of such information from your account. We may use any aggregated data derived from or incorporating your Personal Information after you update or delete it, but not in a manner that would identify you personally.
You may authorize an agent to take any of the acts permitted in this Section VIII on your behalf. To do so, you must provide written and signed authority to the agent, and written and signed notice to Flappingoodtale that Flappingoodtale may act on such requests by that agent.
To the extent that we process your Personal Information based on your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us at email@example.com.
Please be aware that such withdrawal does not affect the lawfulness of Flappingoodtale’s use of your Personal Information before such withdrawal. We reserve the right to terminate and/or limit your access to the Websites and Services in the event that you withdraw your consent.
Flappingoodtale does not sell Personal Information. You may opt out of the disclosure and sharing of your Personal Information by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your authorized agent may opt out of the disclosure of your Personal Information pursuant to the terms of Section VIII.B above.
We will act upon any request to opt out of all disclosure and sharing of your Personal Information, including notifying all third parties to whom we have disclosed or shared your Personal Information and ceasing to disclose or share your Personal Information, consistent with the requirements of the Privacy Laws.
Flappingoodtale will not contact you about opting in to disclosing your Personal Information for at least 12 months following receipt of the form.
Please see Section IX for an explanation how opting out of the disclosure of your Personal Information may affect service differences offered by Flappingoodtale.
You may object to, or otherwise challenge, Flappingoodtale’s collection and use of your Personal Information by contacting us at email@example.com. Flappingoodtale will respond consistent with the requirements of the Privacy Laws.
Where such objection is received from an individual whose Personal Information Flappingoodtale collects and uses as the processor for a controller (as those terms are defined in the GDPR), Flappingoodtale will inform the controller of the objection within 30 days.
Regulatory authorities that oversee the Privacy Laws typically advise individuals to file an objection or challenge with the company before lodging a formal complaint with a regulatory authority. If an individual is dissatisfied with Flappingoodtale’s response to an objection or challenge filed under Section VIII.E, or wishes to file a complaint with a regulatory authority first, the individual may do so, including as follows:
GDPR: a supervisory authority in the relevant European Union member state;
CCPA: California Attorney General; and
PII Laws: the relevant states’ Attorney General’s office.
At your request, Flappingoodtale will terminate any automated decision making, including profiling, that is the sole source of decisions that produce a legal effect concerning or similarly significantly affecting you. Consistent with Section XIV, Flappingoodtale does not use any such automated decision making or profiling at this time.
Flappingoodtale will not discriminate against you because you have exercised any of the rights above or any other rights you retain pursuant to Privacy Laws, including, but not limited to by:
· Denying goods or services to you;
· Charging different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties;
· Providing a different level or quality of goods or services to you; and
· Suggesting that you will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
Consistent with Privacy Laws, Flappingoodtale: (i) retains the right to charge you a different price or rate, or provide a different level or quality of goods or services to you, if that difference is reasonably related to the value provided to Flappingoodtale by your Personal Information; (ii) may offer financial incentives, including payments to you as compensation, for the collection, disclosure, or deletion of your Personal Information; (iii) may enter you into a financial incentive program only if Flappingoodtale clearly describes the material terms of the financial incentive program, so long as you give Flappingoodtale prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time; and (iv) shall not use financial incentive practices that are unjust, unreasonable, coercive, or usurious in nature. Please see Section IX for an explanation of Flappingoodtale’s service differences.
Flappingoodtale does not offer any financial incentives for providing your Personal Information.
Our Website is not intended for children under 18 years of age.

You can always opt not to disclose information to us, but keep in mind some information may be needed to register with us or to take advantage of some of our special features.
Flappingoodtale does not rely on automated decision making, including profiling, and will not subject you to decisions based solely on automated processing which will produce legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affecting you.
If and to the extent that Flappingoodtale transfers Personal Information from one country into another, including the United States, Flappingoodtale does so in compliance with the Privacy Laws of the originating country.
