HOW TO OPT-OUT OF FUTURE COMMUNICATIONS
If you do not want us to contact you with marketing communications or other information regarding our products and services (or if you agreed to be contacted for such purposes at the point Personal Information was collected by us but you no longer wish to be contacted or have your information used in such way), you can let us know by following the unsubscribe instructions on any communications sent to you. You can also unsubscribe at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

HOW SKILL TALENTS MAY SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
Our Site and the Services are not intended for nor directed toward children under the age of 16, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16 years of age. If you believe that your child under the age of 16 may have provided us with Personal Information without your consent, you may alert us at email@example.com. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected any Personal Information from children under 16, we will promptly take steps to delete such information and terminate the child's account.
TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION TO SINGAPORE
We will only keep your Personal Information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purpose of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Information; the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Information; the purposes for which we process your Personal Information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means; and the applicable legal requirements. Details of retention periods for different aspects of your Personal Information are available on request by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
Under the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the GDPR) and the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), data subjects located in the EU, UK, and California have the right under certain circumstances: To be provided with a copy of your Personal Information held by us. To request that we correct any of your Personal Information held by us. To request that we restrict the processing of your Personal Information (while we verify or investigate your concerns with this information, for example). To object to any further processing of your Personal Information, including the right to object to marketing. To request that the Personal Information you have provided be transferred to a third party. To withdraw consent, without detriment, where the basis of the processing of your Personal Information is based on consent. To request that we delete any of your Personal Information held by us unless a legal exception applies. You will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Information (or exercise any other rights). We may, however, charge a fee if we believe your request is excessive, unfounded, or repetitive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. In response to any of the requests outlined above, we may need to request specific information from you to enable us to confirm your identity and to ensure you have the right to access your Personal Information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that your Personal Information is not disclosed to any person who does not have the right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request in order to speed up our response time. We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
