Privacy

Below is the Privacy Policy for LarzTech:

Information I Collect

I only collect information about you if I have a reason to do so — for example, to provide this website, to communicate with you, or to make this website better.

I collect this information when you provide information to me or automatically through operating our Services.

Information You Provide to Us

I collect almost all information automatically:

How and Why I Use Information

I use information about you for the purposes listed below:

(1) The use is necessary in order to keep this website online; or

(2) The use is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or

Sharing Information

I share information about you in limited circumstances, and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy. These are spelled out below, as well as in the section called Ads and Analytics Services Provided by Others:

I have a long-standing policy that I do not sell our users’ data. I’m not a data broker, I don’t sell your personal information to data brokers, and I don’t sell your information to other companies that want to spam you with marketing emails.

How Long I Keep Information

I generally discard information about you when it’s no longer needed for the purposes for which I collect and use it — described in the section above on How and Why I Use Information — and I’m not legally required to keep it.

For example, I keep the web server logs that record information about a visitor to my website, like the visitor’s IP address, browser type, and operating system, for approximately 30 days. I retain the logs for this period of time in order to, among other things, analyze traffic and investigate issues if something goes wrong on my website.

Transfereing Information

Because this website is offered worldwide, the information about you that I process when you use the Services in the EU may be used, stored, and/or accessed by individuals operating outside the European Economic Area (EEA). This is required for the purposes listed in the How and Why I Use Information section above. When providing information about you to entities outside the EEA, I will take appropriate measures to ensure that the recipient protects your personal information adequately in accordance with this Privacy Policy as required by applicable law.

By accessing this website you consent to the processing and storing of information in Germany, the U.S., and other countries, which may have different protections than your home country.

Security

While no online service is 100% secure, I work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so.

Your Rights

If you are located in certain parts of the world, including California and countries that fall under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (aka the “GDPR”), you may have certain rights regarding your personal information, like the right to request access to or deletion of your data.

European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

If you are located in a country that falls under the scope of the GDPR, data protection laws give you certain rights with respect to your personal data, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the rights to:

You also have the right to make a complaint to a government supervisory authority.

California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) requires me to provide California residents with some additional information about the categories of personal information I collect and share, where I get that personal information, and how and why I use it.

The CCPA also requires me to provide a list of the “categories” of personal information I collect, as that term is defined in the law, so, here it is. In the last 12 months, I collected the following category of personal information from California residents:

If you are a California resident, you have additional rights under the CCPA, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the right to:

Request to know the categories of personal information I collect, the categories of business or commercial purpose for collecting and using it, the categories of sources from which the information came, the categories of third parties I share it with, and the specific pieces of information I collect about you;

Request deletion of personal information I collect or maintain;

Opt out of any sale of personal information; and

Not receive discriminatory treatment for exercising your rights under the CCPA.

The CCPA & Personalized Advertising in Our Ads Program

The personal information I use includes online identifiers; internet or other network or device activity (such as the IP address); and geolocation data (approximate location information from your IP address). These disclosures may be considered a “sale” of information under the CCPA. I do not sell (or share) information through our ads program that identifies you personally, like your name or contact information.

Contacting Me About These Rights

When you contact me about one of your rights under this section, I’ll need to verify that you are the right person before I disclose or delete anything. For example, if you are a user, I will need you to contact me from the email address associated with your account. You can also designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf by giving me written authorization. I may still require you to verify your identity with me.

How to Reach Us

If you have a question about this Privacy Policy, or you would like to contact me about any of the rights mentioned in the Your Rights section above, please contact me via email (lars@larztech.com).
