GDPR PRIVACY NOTICE SUPPLEMENT

Last updated September 8, 2020

Thank you for choosing to be part of our community at Defector Media, LLC (“Company”, “we”, “us”, or “our”). We are committed to your right to privacy and respecting your ability to control your information. If you have any questions or concerns about this privacy notice, or our practices with regards to your personal information, please contact us at privacy@defector.com.

This supplement (“Supplement”) applies to visitors, users, and others who reside in the  European Union (“EU”), United Kingdom, Lichtenstein, Norway, or Iceland (“consumers” or “you”). It is designed to supplement the Defector Media, LLC Privacy Notice (“Privacy Notice”) to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR“). For a description of the type of third parties to which we disclose Personal Data, and the purposes for which we do so, please refer to the general Privacy Notice.

Where applicable, this Supplement is intended to supplement, and not replace, the Company’s Privacy Notice. If there are any conflicts between this Supplement and the Company’s Privacy Notice, the policy or portion that is more protective of Personal Data shall control to the extent of such conflict.

For this Supplement, we use the terms “Personal Data” and “processing” as they are defined in the GDPR, but “Personal Data” generally means information that can be used to individually identify a person, and “processing” generally covers actions that can be performed in connection with data such as collection, use, storage and disclosure. Company will be the controller of your Personal Data processed in connection with the Services. Any terms defined in the GDPR have the same meaning when used in this Supplement.

When you use any Company website, mobile site, media form, media channel, application, tool, email/text/SMS campaign, event, product, service and/or other activity, offering, or publication (regardless of how distributed, transmitted, published, or broadcast) provided by us related, linked, or otherwise connected thereto, or that links to, or references, the Terms of Use or this document, including without limitation all content, features and functionality thereof, such as widgets, plug-ins, and embeddable players (the “Site“), we appreciate that you are trusting us with your personal information. We take your privacy very seriously. In this privacy notice, we seek to explain to you in the clearest way possible what information we collect, how we use it and what rights you have in relation to it. We hope you take some time to read through it carefully, as it is important. If there are any terms in this privacy notice that you do not agree with, please discontinue use of our Site immediately.

This privacy notice applies to all information collected through our Site, as well as any related services, sales, marketing or events.

Please read this privacy notice carefully as it will help you understand what we do with the information that we collect.

1.  HOW LONG DO WE RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

Depending on the type of Personal Data and our reasons for processing such Personal Data, we retain your Personal Data for a few days in some cases, and in other cases, indefinitely until you request deletion. In some cases we retain Personal Data after you request deletion, if doing so is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes or collect fees owed, or is otherwise permitted or required by applicable law, rule or regulation. Afterwards, we retain some information in a depersonalized or aggregated form but not in a way that would identify you personally.

2.  WHAT SECURITY MEASURES DO WE USE?

We take precautions including organizational, technical and physical measures to help safeguard against the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration and unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, the Personal Data we process or use.
