Personal Information You Disclose to Us

The personal information that you provide to us can be your name, email address, location, and occupation. Moreover, if you are purchasing products, then you are also providing us with payment and address information. (However, your payment information is not stored in our system because purchases are processed through payment processors.) Therefore, should you have any questions about payment activities and/or information, contact the specific payment processor directly.

If you do not wish to receive any communications from us, you can opt out by clicking on the unsubscribe link located at the bottom of the emails.

Visitors’ Rights Under GDPR
As someone who resides in the European Union, you are entitled to exercise certain rights that you are given under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Any information or data that you chose to provide us will be kept with Audacity to Strive until one of these happens: (1) you ask Audacity to Strive to DELETE the information and/or data; (2) Audacity to Strive decides to STOP USING the existing data processors, or (3) Audacity to Strive decides that the cost of retaining the data outweighs the value in retaining it.
As a consumer and/or visitor on our Site who is located in the European Union region, you have the right to request access to your data that Audacity to Strive collected on you and stores it.
You are within your rights to demand to know exactly what data and information Audacity to Strive has collected on you. Keep in mind that some parts of this data was provided by you personally, while others were gathered through cookies, pixels and/or through Google Analytics.
You have the right to withdraw consent on a data that you previously gave us consent to collect and process. The right to withdraw consent applies to any future processing of that data. However, any data that has been collected and processed previously based on valid consent is lawful and not subject to liability based on any legal grounds.
You also have the right to request erasure of your data and all your information from Audacity to Strive’s data storage. Once you request that your data be erased Audacity to Strive’s databases, we have thirty (30) days to comply with your request. If it’s impossible to comply within 30 days, then Audacity to Strive will respond to the Visitor’s request and let them know about the issue and also give them a reasonable time as to when their request for deletion will be honored.
Aside from rights such as request to access, request to delete and rectify, an EU user also has the right to place restrictions on the data processing itself. This means a user can limit certain things that Audacity to Strive can and cannot do with their data. You can choose to limit transfer of your data to third-party businesses (unless it’s essential for Audacity to Strive’s basic functions).
You further have the right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority who oversees and handles issues related to the GDPR.
Lastly, it’s Audacity to Strive’s duty to inform you that we only require information that is reasonably necessary to enter into a contract with you. We do not collect any unnecessary data, and any information we acquire is used for legitimate business purposes such as growing and scaling our business, or being able to provide satisfactory customer service to you and other users.
