Lightserve may share data with trusted partners and service providers to help provide backup and disaster-recovery services, provide data storage and processing services, perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Lightserve, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Lightserve may include personal data in connection with or during negotiation of any merger, financing, acquisitions, bankruptcy, dissolution, transaction or proceeding involving sale, transfer, divestiture, or disclosure of all or a portion of our business or assets to another company.
Lightserve may disclose your personal information to respond to lawful requests or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Lightserve or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Lightserve, its customers, and others; (c) respond to valid requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements; (d) protect against legal liability; and, (e) act under emergency to protect the personal safety of users of Lightserve, its customers, or the public.

If you wish to ask for access, correction, or deletion of any of your personal information held by us or a change in the way we use your information (for which we reserve the right to charge you a fee, as permitted by applicable law), please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. However, we may decline requests that are unreasonable, prohibited by law, or are not required to be honored by applicable law.
You may opt out of receiving promotional emails from us by following the instructions in those emails. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as emails about your accounts or our ongoing business relations. You may also send requests about your contact preferences, changes to your information including requests to opt-out of sharing your personal information with third parties by emailing email@example.com.

There are many ways through which web browser signals and other similar mechanisms (for example, "Do Not Track") can indicate your choice to disable tracking, and, while we and others give you choices described in this Statement, we do not currently honor these mechanisms.
Security of your Personal Information
Lightserve takes reasonable steps to help secure your personal information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, use, alteration, destruction, or disclosure.
Transfers of Your Personal Information
Personal information we collect may be stored and processed in your region, in the United States or in any other country where we or our affiliates, subsidiaries or service providers maintain facilities. We maintain primary data centers in the United States. We take steps designed to ensure that the data we collect under this Statement is processed according to the provisions of this Statement and applicable law wherever the data is located.
When we transfer personal information from the European Economic Area and Switzerland to other countries, some of which have not been determined by the European Commission to have an adequate level of data protection, we use a variety of legal mechanisms, including contracts, in an effort to help ensure your rights and protections.
For EU Users - Your European Privacy Rights
We adhere to applicable data protection laws in the European Economic Area, which, if applicable to you, includes the following rights:
• If we are processing personal information based on your consent, you have a right to withdraw consent at any time for future processing;
• You have a right to request access to, rectification, or erasure of your personal information, or to transfer or receive a copy of your personal information in a usable format;
• You have a right to object to the processing of your personal information under certain circumstances; and
• You have a right to lodge a complaint with a data protection authority.
Storage and Retention of Your Personal Information
We retain your personal information for as long as necessary to provide services requested by you, or for other essential purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, and enforcing our agreements. Because these needs can vary for different data types in the context of different services, actual retention periods can vary significantly. The criteria used to determine retention include:
1. How long is the personal information needed to provide applicable services? This includes such things as maintaining and improving the performance of the services, enabling system security measures, and maintaining appropriate business and financial records.
2. Do users provide, create, or maintain the data with the expectation we will retain it until they affirmatively remove it? In such cases, we may maintain the data until actively deleted by the user.
3. Is the personal information of a sensitive type? If so, a shortened retention time may be appropriate.
4. Are we subject to a legal, contractual, or similar obligation to retain the data? Examples can include mandatory data retention laws in the applicable jurisdiction, government orders to preserve data, or data that must be retained for the purposes of litigation.
Changes to This Statement
Lightserve will update this Privacy Statement from time to time. If we make any changes to this Statement, we will change the "Last Updated" date below or provide such notice about or obtain consent to changes as may be required by applicable law. Lightserve encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Lightserve is protecting your information.
If you have any questions about this policy, or if you wish to lodge a complaint about our privacy practices, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
