If it is not provided, then we may not be able to provide the Internet Services. In all other cases, the provision of requested Personal Data is optional.
EU/UK Disclosure: We will not use Personal Data to formulate a decision based solely on automated processing (including profiling) which produces legal effects or similarly significantly impacts you.
Our Personal Data Sharing Practices
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, such as for analyzing data and providing certain of the Internet Services. These third-party service providers have access to Personal Data needed to perform their functions, but we require that they do not use Personal Data for other purposes. Personal Data is not shared with any unaffiliated third parties for their marketing purposes unless we have obtained your consent to do so in accordance with applicable law.

We do not sell your Personal Data, nor do we share it for purposes of cross-context behavioral advertising, and we have not done so in the last 12 months. We do not sell or share the Personal Data of minors.
EU/UK Disclosure: Your Personal Data may be transferred to, processed in and accessed from jurisdictions outside the EU and the UK by Verdant Frontiers Fintech and the third parties with which we share your Personal Data.

When we transfer your Personal Data among Verdant Frontiers Fintech entities, or to other third party organizations, we will do in accordance with the GDPR and/or the UK GDPR, including through the use of European Commission-approved standard contractual clauses, a third party’s binding corporate rules or we where are entitled to rely on one of the other safeguards permitted by the GDPR and/or the UK GDPR.
We have controls in place designed to ensure that the Personal Data we collect and process is relevant, accurate and appropriate for the purposes it is used. If you believe that any Personal Data about you is inaccurate, please let us know by contacting us at email@example.com. Please note that any Personal Data we have copied may remain in back-up storage for some period of time after your request, and that if you delete certain Personal Data, you may not be able to use the Internet Services in the future without re-submitting such information. Please also note that we will maintain Personal Data whenever we are required to do so by law or regulation.
Individuals in a number of jurisdictions may have certain rights in relation to their Personal Data. These rights vary, but they may include the right to: (1) request access to and rectification or erasure of their Personal Data; (2) restrict or object to the processing of their Personal Data; and (3) obtain a copy of their Personal Data in a portable format. Individuals may also have the right to lodge a complaint about Verdant Frontiers Fintech’s processing of their Personal Data with a data protection authority. The rights described herein are not absolute and may not be applicable to you. We reserve all of our rights available to us at law in this regard. If you wish to exercise any of the rights described in this Your Rights section, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 888-351-3007.
If you wish to exercise your rights, we will need to verify your identity. To do so, we will request that you match specific pieces of information you have provided us previously, as well as, in some instances, ask you to provide a signed declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the individual whose Personal Data is the subject of the request. If it is necessary to collect additional information (including Personal Data) from you, we will use the information only for verification purposes and will delete it as soon as practicable after complying with the request. For requests related to particularly sensitive Personal Data, we may require additional proof of identification. If you make a request through an authorized agent, we will require written proof that the agent is authorized to act on your behalf. We will process your request within the time provided by applicable law.
EU/UK Disclosure: You may be entitled to ask Verdant Frontiers Fintech for a copy of your Personal Data, to correct, delete or restrict processing of it, and to obtain the Personal Data you provide in a structured, machine-readable format and ask us to share this Personal Data with other organizations. You may also have the right to object to processing in some circumstances and can ask us not to send you direct marketing or to carry out profiling at any time. You have the right to lodge a complaint about Verdant Frontiers Fintech’s processing of your Personal Data with a data protection authority in the place you live, work or where the breach occurred. Where we have asked for your consent, you may withdraw consent at any time. If you ask to withdraw your consent to Verdant Frontiers Fintech processing your Personal Data, this will not affect any processing that has already taken place. These rights may be limited, for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal Personal Data about another person, where they would infringe the rights of a third party (including our rights) or if you ask us to delete Personal Data that we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping. We will inform you of relevant exemptions we rely upon when responding to any request you make.
CCPA Disclosure: If you are a California resident, you may be entitled to request access to the categories or specific pieces of Personal Data that Verdant Frontiers Fintech collects about you, to request that Verdant Frontiers Fintech deletes or corrects your Personal Data and to opt out of the sale and/or sharing of your Personal Data. Although California residents may have the right to opt out of the sale and sharing of Personal Data, Verdant Frontiers Fintech does not sell or share Personal Data as the terms “sell” and “share” are used under the CCPA to third parties, including Personal Data of individuals under 16 years of age, and we have not sold or shared such Personal Data in the last 12 months. The CCPA prohibits Verdant Frontiers Fintech from discriminating against you for exercising your applicable CCPA rights.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights described in this CCPA Disclosure section, please email email@example.com or call 888-351-3007. In order to respond to a request, you will be required to supply a valid means of identification as a security precaution. Depending on the sensitivity of the information in question, we may require additional proof of identification. We will not disclose or delete any information until the individual’s identity is verified. If an agent makes a request on your behalf, they will be required to verify the request by submitting your written authorization, and we may still ask that you verify your identity with us before we can proceed with the request. We will not honor any requests from agents until authorization is verified. We will maintain records of consumer requests made under CCPA and how we responded to those requests in accordance with the CCPA.
California Shine the Light Disclosure: Under California Civil law, Californians are also entitled to request information relating to whether a business has disclosed Personal Data to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. If you are making a request for access, we may not be able to provide specific pieces of Personal Data if the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable and unreasonable risk to the security of your Personal Data, your account with us or our systems or networks. If you are making a request for erasure, we will ask that you confirm that you would like us to delete your Personal Data again before your request is submitted. To make a request, please contact us at the contact information below.
