You can access, update, change, or delete your personal information either directly in your Obo on-line account or by contacting us at email@example.com to request the required changes. You can exercise your other rights (including deleting your Account) by contacting us at the same email address.
You can also elect not to receive marketing communications by changing your preferences in your Account or by following the unsubscribe instruction in such communications (generally provided in the footer area of those communications).
Note that there may be a delay, for technical reasons, in deleting your personal Information from our systems when you request that we delete it.

You may have the right to restrict or object to the processing of your personal information or to exercise a right to data portability under applicable law. You also may have the right to lodge a complaint with a competent supervisory authority, subject to applicable law.
Additionally, if we rely on consent for the processing of your personal information, you have the right to withdraw it at any time for no charge. When you do so, this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before your consent withdrawal.
8. How we protect your personal information
Our security team is dedicated to keeping your personal information safe. We maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing of, the personal information in our possession.
9. How we retain your personal information
The exact length of time for which we keep your personal information may vary depending on the nature of the information and why we need it. Factors will include the minimum required retention period prescribed by law or recommended as best practice, the period during which a claim can be made, whether the personal information has been aggregated or pseudonymized, and other relevant criteria.
Please note that in the course of providing Obo Services, we collect and maintain aggregated, anonymized, or de-personalized information which we may retain indefinitely.
10. Data transfers
Personal information that you submit through the Services may be transferred to countries other than where you live, such as, for example, to our servers in the U.S. We also store personal information locally on the devices you use to access the Services.
Your personal information may be transferred to countries that do not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you first provided your personal information.
We rely upon a number of means to transfer personal information which is subject to the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) in accordance with Chapter V of the GDPR. These include:

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
