Where required by applicable law, you have the right to obtain confirmation that we maintain certain Personal Data relating to you, to verify its content, origin, and accuracy, as well as the right to access, review, port, delete, block or withdraw consent to the processing of certain Personal Data (without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal), by contacting us as detailed below.

You should not share your username and password with anyone, and you should not re-use passwords across more than one website. If you have any reason to believe that your username or password has been compromised, please contact us as detailed below.

Internet-Based Transfers

Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on a international basis. Therefore, by browsing the DeepDownInc.com and DeepDownCorp.com sites and communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way. The Privacy Policy Statement does not apply to Third Party Sites.

CROSS-BORDER DATA TRANSFERS

We may transfer Personal Data to various jurisdictions as necessary for the purposes described above,including to jurisdictions that may not provide the same level of data protection as your home country. We provide appropriate protections for cross-border transfers as required by applicable law for international data transfers. With respect to transfers originating from the European Economic Area ("EEA"), we implement standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission, and other appropriate solutions to address cross-border transfers as required by applicable law. Where required by such laws, you may request a copy of the suitable mechanisms we have in place by contacting us as detailed below.

 

OTHER ISSUES

What is the legal basis of processing?
Some jurisdictions require an explanation of the legal basis for collecting and processing Personal Data. We have several different legal grounds on which we collect and process Personal Data, including:

  1. as necessary to perform a transaction (such as when we respond to your requests);
  2. as necessary to comply with a legal obligation (such as when we use Personal Data for recordkeeping to substantiate tax liability);
  3. consent (where you have provided consent as appropriate under applicable law, such as for direct marketing or certain cookies); and
  4. Necessary for legitimate interests (such as when we act to maintain our business generally, including maintaining the safety and security of the Site).

With respect to legitimate interests, given that we are a B2B company, we typically collect and process limited Personal Data about customer contacts and other individuals acting in their business capacities, as part of our overall effort to reduce the privacy impact on individuals.

What are the consequences of not providing Personal Data?
You are not required to provide all Personal Data identified in this Privacy Policy to use our Site or to interact with us offline, but certain functionality will not be available if you do not provide certain Personal Data. If you do not provide certain Personal Data, we may not be able to respond to your requests, perform a transaction with you, or provide you with marketing that we believe you would find valuable.

Do we engage in automated decision-making without human intervention?
Except with regard to certain recruitment activities, which are detailed in a separate privacy statement, we do not use automated decision-making without human intervention, including profiling, in a way that produces legal effects concerning you or otherwise significantly affects you.

Does the Site honor do not track ("DNT") signals sent via browsers?
No, we DO NOT honor DNT signals.

How long do we retain Personal Data?
We typically retain Personal Data related to marketing activities for as long as you accept marketing communications from us. Our third party contractors may keep them, but generally for up to 2 years or less.

After 2 years, or upon request, they/we will generally securely delete such data in accordance with applicable law.

For Personal Data that we collect and process for other purposes, as described above, we typically retain such Personal Data for no longer than the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, and as otherwise needed to address tax, corporate, compliance, employment, litigation, and other legal rights and obligations.

This Site contains links and references to other websites administered by unaffiliated third parties. This Privacy Policy does not apply to such third party websites. When you click a link to visit a third party website, you will be subject to that website's privacy practices. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the privacy and security practices of any linked third party websites before providing any Personal Data on those websites.

How does Deep Down, Inc. handle employee and contractor privacy issues?
Personal Data about our employees and contractors are addressed through internal company policies and procedures, and are outside the scope of this Privacy Policy.
