Additional Disclosures for EEA Data Subjects:

If you are an individual in the European Economic Area (EEA), we collect and process information about you only where we have legal bases for doing so under applicable EU laws. The legal bases depend on the Sites and how you use them. This means we collect and use your information only where:

    • maintaining records of bugs, customer support requests and similar requests you file, and our response to these requests;
    • using information to personalize content and features on our Sites
    • detecting, investigating and preventing activities that may violate our policies or applicable laws (such as fraud detection and prevention);
    • maintaining corporate or business records consistent with our retention policies and applicable laws;

Where we are using your information because we or a third party (e.g. your employer) have a legitimate interest to do so, individuals in the EEA have the right to object to that use as specified in Article 21 of the GDPR, though, in some cases, this may mean no longer using the Sites. We further acknowledge that EEA data subjects have certain other rights under the GDPR, including the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority and to request from the controller access to, and rectification or erasure of, personal data, restriction of processing concerning the data subject, and data portability (in each case, as specified under the GDPR). Where dontneedaman.com is acting as a controller, you can initiate a request by contacting us as specified in the “Contacting Us” section below. Please note that if you object to or restrict processing, you may not be able to use the Sites or certain features any longer.
