Capella will not otherwise disclose Your personal information to a third party unless You have provided Your express consent. However, You should be aware that Capella may be required to disclose Your personal information without Your consent in order to comply with any court orders, subpoenas, or other legal process or investigation including by tax authorities, if such disclosure is required by law. Where possible and appropriate, we will notify You if we are required by law to disclose Your personal information.
The third parties who host our servers do not control, and are not permitted to access or use Your personal information except for the limited purpose of storing the information. This means that Capella does not currently “disclose” personal information to third parties located overseas.
Information about You from Third Parties
In order to protect against potential fraud, we may verify with third parties the information you provide. In the course of such verification, we receive personally identifiable information about you from such services. In particular, if you use a credit card or debit card to purchase services with us, we may use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that your card information and address matches the information that you supplied to us, and that the card has not been reported as lost or stolen. Under some circumstances such as registering your business to subscribe to services from us, we may conduct a background check on your business by obtaining information about you and your business from a credit bureau or a business information service such as Dun & Bradstreet.
If you incur a debt to us, we will generally conduct a credit check on you by obtaining additional information about you from a credit bureau, to the extent permitted by law. We, at our sole discretion, also reserve the right periodically to retrieve and review a business and/or consumer credit report for any account, and reserve the right to close an account based on information obtained during this credit review process.
Use of Non-Personal Information Collected
Capella Consulting uses non-personal information such as demographic data to analyse and develop marketing strategy and to determine how you found about us, your interests regarding our products and services and how to further improve this Web site based upon user data. We may share such non-personal data with third parties.
You may request access to Your personal information
It is Your responsibility to ensure that the personal information You provide to us is accurate, complete and up-to-date. You may request access to the information we hold about You, or request that we update or correct any personal information we hold about You, by setting out Your request in writing and sending it to us at email@example.com.
Capella will process Your request as soon as reasonably practicable, provided we are not otherwise prevented from doing so on legal grounds. If we are unable to meet Your request, we will let you know why. For example, it may be necessary for us to deny Your request if it would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy or affairs of other individuals, or if it is not reasonable and practicable for us to process Your request in the manner You have requested. In some circumstances, it may be necessary for us to seek to arrange access to Your personal information through a mutually agreed intermediary (for example, the Subscriber).
We’ll only keep Your personal information for as long as we require it for the purposes of providing You with the Service. However, we may also be required to keep some of Your personal information for specified periods of time, for example under certain laws relating to corporations, money laundering, and financial reporting legislation.
We communicate with users who subscribe to our services on a regular basis via email, and we may also communicate by phone to resolve customer complaints or investigate suspicious transactions. We may use your email address to confirm your opening of an account, to send you notice of payments, to send you information about changes to our products and services, and to send notices and other disclosures as required by law. Generally, users cannot opt out of these communications, but they will be primarily informational in nature rather than promotional.
Capella Consulting provides you the opportunity to exercise an opt-out choice if you do not want to receive other types of communication from us such as emails or updates from us regarding new services and products offered on this Web site or if you do not want us to share your personal information with third parties.
