COOKIES AND OTHER INTERNET TECHNOLOGIES
This Site uses cookies (i.e., small text files placed on your device) and similar technologies (e.g., pixels and pixel tags, ad tags, and Javascript) – including cookies and technologies from third-party providers – to enable certain features and functionality and to collect additional information that helps us to improve this Site and our services. This Site may use session cookies (which expire when you close your browser) and persistent cookies (which remain on your device after you close your browser until you delete them or they expire). We use these technologies for security purposes, to help you navigate this Site, to display information more effectively, to better serve you with tailored information on this Site, and to gather statistical information about how visitors use this Site in order to continually improve its design and functions.

If you do not want data to be collected from your device via cookies, most browsers have a setting that allows you to decline the use of cookies. Some features of this Site may not work properly if you decline the use of cookies. To learn more about cookies, please visit https://www.allaboutcookies.org.

THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES
This Privacy Statement does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy practices of any third parties, including those that operate websites to which this Site links. The inclusion of a link on this Site does not imply that we endorse the practices of the linked website.

DATA SECURITY
We use reasonable organizational, technical, and administrative measures to protect data under our control. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you feel that the security of any data that we hold about you has been compromised, please immediately notify us by emailing [email protected]

EXERCISING YOUR RIGHTS
You have choices about how your personal data is handled, and we are committed to providing you with reasonable access to your personal data and the ability to review and limit the use of such data in accordance with applicable law.

If you no longer want to receive electronic newsletters or other marketing communications from WAMI Swag, you can click on the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of such communications.

Depending on your country (or U.S. state) of residence, you may also have the right to:

  • request confirmation that we are processing your personal data;
  • request a copy of the personal data we hold about you;
  • request that we update the personal data we hold about you or correct such data that is inaccurate or incomplete;
  • restrict the way in which we use your personal data (e.g., if we have no legal right to keep using it) or limit our use of your personal data (e.g., if your personal data is inaccurate or unlawfully held);
  • object to our processing of your personal data;
  • withdraw the consent that you have given us to process your personal data (where we process your personal data on the basis of your consent);
  • request that we delete the personal data we hold about you; and
  • lodge a complaint with the data protection or privacy authority in your country of residence regarding our processing of your personal data.


If you are interested in exercising one or more of the rights described above, you can submit a request by emailing [email protected] Please note that we may require proof of your identity before we can give effect to these rights.

We will not discriminate against you if you decide to exercise your rights under applicable law.

Because we want to avoid taking action regarding your personal data at the direction of someone other than you, only you or an “Authorized Agent” permitted to act on your behalf may submit a request. An “Authorized Agent” means a natural person or a business entity you have authorized to act on your behalf by providing your written permission. Please note, we may deny a request from an Authorized Agent if they do not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf.

Your request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal data or an Authorized Agent; and
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.


We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal data if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal data we maintain relates to you. To verify your identity, we will seek to match any personal data you provide when you (or an Authorized Agent) submit your request to any personal data we already maintain. If we are unable to verify your identity based on the data we maintain, we will let you know.

DATA RETENTION
We will retain your personal data only for those periods necessary to fulfill the various purposes outlined in this Privacy Statement, unless a longer retention period is required or allowed by law.

If we become aware that we have received data from a person under the age of 18, we will take reasonable steps to delete such data from our records.

UPDATES TO THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT
