When you choose to subscribe or open an account, or use any of our online or mobile services and features, all of the information provided to us is kept strictly private, including names, addresses, and contact information. All information collected is owned by the Client Administrator who is a Client of Ardian.
Ardian, as operator and controller of the Service, has implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures to meet the requirements of applicable Privacy laws, regulations and guidelines to protect the rights of an individual’s Information.

We collect this Information for the purpose of providing the Service, identifying and communicating with you, responding to your requests/inquiries, servicing your purchase orders or subscriptions, and improving our services.
The Service allows a hierarchal user structure that allows user types to Handle the Information.
We have four (4) different types of users (“Users”) for our Service. The type of user you are will determine the collection and use policies of your Information.
In using our Service, the Client may Handle Information about Users. The Client solely owns all Information that is collected and maintained through our Service, and we have no rights to sell or use the Information provided.

Users of the Service have the right to access certain Information collected and to ensure that it is accurate and relevant for which it was collected. If a User desires to request access, limit use, limit disclosure or delete their Information, we may initially send your request to the Client and/or Community Administrator who submitted your Information and will support them as needed in responding to your request. Information will be provided free of charge in a “commonly used” readable, electronic format.
Users’ Information will be provided in a “commonly used” readable, electronic format. Users have the right to reuse and transmit that Information for another purpose.

Also known as Data Sanitization, Removal, or Erasure, Users have the right to have their information erased and further dissemination ceased as well as withdrawing the User’s consent from the original Specifying Purpose.
During an Information breach where the event is likely to “result in a risk for the rights and freedoms of the individuals,” Users will be notified within the timeframe as required by applicable laws that a breach occurred.
