We use information we collect to protect our users, to provide, maintain, protect and improve our Website, products and services, to recruit and hire talent, and to contact you with marketing, promotional materials and other personalized information that may be of interest to you in particular. We may use information you provide to us as well as information provided by third parties (where permitted) for this purpose.

- to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request;
- to enforce applicable terms of service, including to investigate potential violations;
- to detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, protect against harm to our rights, property or safety or those of our users or the public to the extent required or permitted by applicable laws;

How does Chronicle keep my personal information secure?
We use appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the personal information that we collect and process about you. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your personal information.
International data transfers
Your personal information may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country (and, in some cases, may not be as protective). Our servers are located in many countries around the world, and our subsidiaries and third-party service providers and partners operate globally.
Chronicle commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of personal information received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Frameworks in compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles. Chronicle remains responsible for any of your personal information that is shared under the Onwards Transfer Principle with third parties for external processing on our behalf, as described above. EU and Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our use of personal information about them in conjunction with our obligations under the Privacy Shield Principles should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Chronicle has further committed to cooperate with the panel established by the EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) with regard to unresolved Privacy Shield complaints concerning data transferred from the EU and Switzerland. You may also refer a complaint to your local data protection authority and we will work with them to resolve your concern. In certain circumstances, the Privacy Shield Framework provides the right to invoke binding arbitration to resolve complaints not resolved by other means, as described in Annex I to the Privacy Shield Principles.

Your data protection rights
If you wish to access, correct, update or request deletion of personal information we may hold about you, you can do so at any time by contacting us at email@example.com.
We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements). When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
How to contact us
If you have any questions or concerns about our use of your personal information or our privacy practices, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
