Please note that THEDRONERACINGLEAGUE.COM may offer content (e.g., contests, sweepstakes, promotions, games, applications, or social network integrations) that is sponsored or co-branded with identified third parties. By virtue of these relationships, the third parties may obtain information from their visitors. We have no control over these third parties’ use of this information, which is subject to their own privacy policies.
DRL operates globally so it may be necessary to transfer your information internationally. In particular, your information will likely be transferred to and processed in the United States where of our central databases operate.
Although DRL’s website and products and services are available online to a global audience, it neither targets EU citizens for offering goods and services, nor does it monitor their behavior. In addition, DRL operates from the United States and does not have an established presence in the European Union. Therefore, DRL’s business activities currently are not subject to the EU Data Protection Laws, but DRL will promptly take reasonable steps to become compliance with such laws at an appropriate time, if necessary and applicable.
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when processing or transferring your personal data out of the EEA, or with respect to the treatment of personal data concerning citizens located in the EU or EEA.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of Information, we cannot assure you that Information that will never be disclosed, altered or destroyed in a manner that is inconsistent with this privacy statement. We have also put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
Details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal data can be requested from us by contacting us at the contact information provided in this policy.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see [your legal rights] below for further information.
In some circumstances we will anonymize your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. These may include the right to:
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact our data privacy manager at the contact information provided in this policy.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex, if our resources are constrained, or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will make commercially reasonable attempts to notify you and keep you updated.
California’s “Shine the Light” law, Civil Code section 1798.83, requires certain businesses to respond to requests from California customers asking about the business’ practices related to disclosing personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Alternately, businesses may have in place a policy not to disclose personal information of customers to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes if the customer has exercised an option to opt-out of such information-sharing. We have such a policy in place.
As discussed above in How to Contact Us/Opting Out of Marketing Communications, if you wish to opt-out of our sharing of your personal Information with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes or to find out more about your opt-out rights, please contact us as described above.
From time to time, we may update this privacy statement. We will notify you about material changes by either sending an email message to the email address you most recently provided to us or by prominently posting a notice on our site. We encourage you to periodically check back and review this statement so that you always will know what information we collect, how we use it, and with whom we share it.
