We verify requests associating the information provided to us in the request to any of your PI we previously collected. We can’t require that you notarize a request, but we can ask for the request to be a signed declaration under penalty of perjury, request the requester to identify goods or services you recently purchased, or the dollar amounts of those recent purchases.

How to Make Requests.

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable request related to your PI. The request must provide sufficient information that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it, as well as reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected PI or an authorized representative of that person. 

If you are a customer or a prospect your request should at a minimum include the following:

  • Your full name
  • the name of your company ; and,
  • your ID.

If you are a visitor of our website, we will verify your identity by matching two or three data points that you provide with data points that we maintain and have determined to be reliable for the purposes of verification (e.g., browser and device ID).

You can also designate an authorized agent to make a request for you. To designate an authorized agent, you must:

  • Give us the required information for your request and similar information about the authorized agent and a copy of the authorization 

Requests to us can be made by :

  • Emailing us at [dpo@adikteev.com];
  • Visiting our Site page to make a request, at [www.ADIKTEEV.com];

If new PI of yours is obtained by us so we can verify the request, we will only use it for that verification and then delete it, unless the requester consents otherwise. 

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with PI if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request, and confirm that the PI relates to you, within 45 days of our receipt of your request. 

We will inform our employees responsible for handling your inquiries about our privacy practices and our compliance with the CCPA, of all requirements set out in the CCPA, how to effectuate those requirements, and how to direct Users to exercise their rights under the CCPA. 


7. Request Response Timing and Format.


We endeavor to respond to verifiable requests (e.g., to disclose, delete, effectuate or Opt-In) within 30 days of our receipt of it. If we require more time, which can be up to an additional 30 days, we will within the initial 30 days inform the requester of the reason and length of the extension period in writing. 

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of the verifiable request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. 

For all requests, we will select a format to provide your PI that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.


8. Non-Discrimination. 


We will not discriminate against You for exercising any of Your rights. We will not:

  • Deny you Services;
  • Charge you different prices or rates for Services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties;
  • Provide you a different level or quality of Services; or,
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for Services, or a different level or quality of Services.


9. Cookies and Related Technologies.


When users use the Site, we may collect certain information by automated or electronic means, using technologies such as cookies, pixel tags, clear gifs (also known as web beacons and web bugs), browser analysis tools, and web server logs. A “clear gif” is a nearly invisible, pixel-size graphic image on an app, website page, app or website-based document, or email. It helps us do things like view the URL of the page in which the clear gif appears, and the time our Site and the email in question is viewed. In emails, clear gifs help us confirm the receipt of and respond to our emails including but not limited to, those that users forward to friends and family, as well as to help us deliver a more personalized online experience.  

As a user uses the Site, their browser and other devices, like certain types of phones and tablets, communicate with servers operated by us, our business partners and service providers, to coordinate and record the interactivity and fill their requests for Services and information.

The information from cookies and related technology is stored in web server logs and also in web cookies kept on the computers or other devices from which users access the Site. This information is then transmitted back to the Site by these devices. These servers are operated, and the cookies managed, by us, our business partners, or our service providers.

A "cookie" is a small amount of information that a web server sends to your browser. It stores information about your account, your preferences, and your use of the Site. Some cookies contain serial numbers that allow us to connect your Site activity with other information we store about you or as related to your interactions with the Site.

Some cookies are temporary, whereas others may be configured to last longer. "Session" cookies are temporary cookies used for various reasons, such as to manage page views. Browsers usually erase session cookies once the browser is exited. "Persistent" cookies are more permanent cookies that are stored on the computers or other devices people use even beyond when they exit their browser. We use persistent cookies for a number of purposes. These include but aren’t limited to, retrieving certain information a User has previously provided (like their password, if they asked to be remembered), and storing that User’s preferences, such as the types of Services in which they’ve told us they’re interested. 

Pixel tags” are tiny graphic images placed on website pages or in our emails that allow us to determine whether a User has performed certain specific actions. When that User accesses these pages or opens our email messages, the pixel tags generate a notice of that action to us and/or our service providers. These tools allow us to measure response to our communications and improve our web pages and promotions.

We collect many different types of information from the devices a user uses to access the Site, using these cookies and other technologies. Some examples of this information are the user’s operating system type, browser type, domain and other system settings, the language the User’s system uses, and the country and time zone of that device. Browsers routinely send these types of information to web servers. Our server logs also record the Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses of the devices a User uses to interact with the Site. An “IP address” is a unique identifier that devices use to identify and communicate with each other online. We may also collect information about the website or app a User was visiting before they came to the Site, and the app or website they visit after they leave the Site, if this information is supplied to us by the User’s browser.

10. Security of Personal Information.


ADIKTEEV has implemented an information security program that contains administrative, technical, and physical controls designed to reasonably safeguard Personal Information. For example, we use industry-standard encryption technology to secure PI when it is being transmitted over the Internet. We also use industry-standard security strategies for password encryption, security certification, periodic vulnerability testing, and periodic service, database, and server security scanning and vulnerability patching. When our employees need to access your PI in the course of providing Services to you, we track it internally. When our third-party providers, like our credit card processing provider, need to access your PI in the course of providing our Services, they can only do so with a password we’ve provided them for this purpose. However, despite our security program and procedures, you acknowledge and understand that WE CAN’T GUARANTEE that any person or company will be prevented from obtaining your PI, or any other information including but not limited to, through unauthorized means such as cyberattacks or hacking.
