Privacy Policy

Academik America and its subsidiaries, affiliates, and associates understand how important privacy is to you and are dedicated to respecting your privacy and safeguarding your personal data. Our Privacy Policy outlines how we handle and protect your personal data in all business activities, client services, and our Sites. This includes any information that can identify you as an individual. If you would like more information about our online terms and policies, please refer to our Terms of Use.

Use of information. Academik America may use your personal data for a range of purposes, such as fulfilling your information requests, customizing the content you view, improving and assessing our services, sharing newsletters and alerts, evaluating our Sites' performance, publishing letters or comments you submit, preventing fraud, enforcing our terms of use, complying with laws and corporate reporting requirements, upholding agreements, and accomplishing other objectives. We may analyze or combine your personal data to provide the most relevant content and services. In some cases, we may collect personal data to operate the Sites or use it in our business activities, such as for certain client services. Furthermore, we may maintain your personal data on record and contact you as needed.

At Academik America, we may gather information on your interactions with the communications we send you. This includes whether or not you open or click any links within them. Additionally, Academik America and our service providers may use first and third-party Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies to oversee our Sites and services and collect analytics on your usage of them. It's important to note that the information outlined in our Privacy Policy regarding cookies also pertains to these other tracking technologies. For more information on our use of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies, please consult our Cookie Policy. At Academik America, we value your privacy and do not track your online activities or modify our practices based on "do not track" signals. Your interactions with us are confidential.

Disclosure of personal data. Academik America always prioritizes the safety and security of your personal data when it is being processed. We take the necessary measures to ensure that your information is adequately protected by our subsidiaries, affiliates, and third-party service providers. This may include transferring your data to countries outside of your home country. We may also transfer personal data collected during Academik America business activities and on our Sites to our subsidiaries, affiliates, and third-party service providers located globally. In some cases, this may mean that the local laws in these countries provide fewer rights than you have in your own country. Additionally, our Sites may be viewed and hosted by our partners anywhere in the world. By using our Sites and providing your information, you are agreeing to the transfer and hosting of your data.

We keep your personal data confidential and do not share it with third parties without your consent or as permitted by law. We take necessary measures to prevent any unauthorized access or accidental disclosure of your information. However, we may allow third-party service providers, whom Academik America engages in providing services related to the sites or our business activities, access to your data. We follow our client services agreements thoroughly and take great care to ensure that any personal data processing done by the providers complies with our Privacy Policy. We prioritize safeguarding the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of your information. In order to support our interactions with you, we may need to share some of this information with third-party service providers who perform services and functions on our behalf. We carefully select these providers and only share the necessary data to complete these tasks. Ensuring privacy is always our top priority.

We may need to share your information in certain situations. For example, if we are required to do so by law or legal process, we may disclose your information to law enforcement authorities or other government officials. We may also share your information if we believe it is necessary to prevent physical harm or financial loss, or if we are investigating suspected or actual illegal activity. In addition, we may disclose your information to protect the vital interests of a person, enforce our terms of use, protect our property and legal rights, prevent fraud, support auditing and compliance, or fulfill our corporate governance functions. We will always comply with all applicable laws when sharing your information.

Link to third-party sites. Academik America wants to ensure that our users have access to the most comprehensive information possible. As such, we may provide links to third-party websites or information as a service. If you decide to use these links, please be aware that you will be leaving our site. We want to make it clear that these links do not represent an endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation by Academik America of the third party, the third-party website, or any information contained therein. Please be aware that any use of these links will be subject to the terms of use and privacy policies applicable to those sites. It's important to note that Academik America will not be responsible or liable for your use of these third-party links.

Safety and Security of Data and Information. Academik America takes the safety and security of your personal data seriously. We have implemented various measures to protect your information from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Only authorized personnel and third-party service providers are allowed access to personal data, and they are required to keep it confidential. It is important to keep in mind that despite taking these precautions, there is still a possibility that unauthorized individuals may gain access to your personal data. Please note that we cannot guarantee that this will not happen.

Data retention. At Academik America, your personal information will be stored throughout our business relationship. We may extend the storage period to conduct analysis, maintain records, or adhere to our information management policies in certain circumstances. If at any point you wish for us to remove your personal information, we will do our utmost to ensure that it is completely deleted from our records. Please don't hesitate to let us know if you would like us to do so. For more information about your personal data rights, please refer to the "Your Rights" section in our Privacy Policy.

User Rights. If you are eligible under the relevant laws, you have the right to request access to your personal data that we have collected. This enables you to review, modify or request deletion of the data as you see fit. You also have the right to obtain a copy of the personal data we have collected about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. You may request that we stop processing your personal data in certain situations.

If you need to access, review, or correct the personal data collected about you or want to talk about how your personal data is being processed, please don't hesitate to contact us. To ensure that your privacy and security are protected, we will take necessary measures to verify your identity, such as requesting your credentials from Sites, before granting access to your personal data. We always strive to promptly investigate, comply with, or respond to your requests as required by applicable law. However, we must also adhere to laws that may prevent us from fully complying with your request, especially if it could reveal someone else's identity. Please note that we reserve the right to charge a reasonable fee for complying with your request if allowed by applicable law.

Moreover, if your requests are manifestly unfounded, excessive, objectionable, or unwarranted under applicable law, we may deny them. Regardless of the circumstances, we always do our best to ensure your personal data is safe and secure. If you feel your data protection rights have been violated, you have the legal right to file a complaint with the appropriate data protection authority. This option is available to you in accordance with local laws and regulations.
