To provide our services to you and to ensure that our software and platform operate correctly, we collect various types of information, including personal information. When you use our website, sign up for our services, and use our software or platform, we collect the following categories of information:
Information you provide to us:
Identifiers and Contact Information. If you use the contact information provided on the chabevents.com website to contact us directly, you agree to allow Chab to store and process your contact information. We will receive your contact information which could include, depending on how you contact us, your email address, name, company name, job title, the reason for contacting, and postal address.
Customer Contact and Account Information. We receive and store the information you provide directly to us when you sign up for and use our services and platform. The types of information we may collect directly from our customers and users include name, email address, mailing address, phone number, job title, payment and billing information, and any other information provided by the user (including a user-submitted photograph if a user chooses to provide one with respect to our data subject access request feature).
When you use our website or platform, we automatically collect the following information:
Internet Protocol Address (“IP address”). IP addresses are assigned by your Internet service provider (e.g., Comcast/Xfinity, AT&T, Time Warner, Verizon, Charter, etc.) to the modem used to access the Internet for connected devices in your home and/or work-place. Any devices using the modem to access the Internet may broadcast the same IP address. At home, connected devices could include one or more laptop/desktop computers, tablets, mobile phones, smart/connected TVs and gaming consoles. At work, connected devices could include one (or all) floor(s) in an office building. Our website receives your IP address from your Internet browser each time you request a file or web page.
User-Agent. Due to the nature of how the Internet works, we may receive information (known as “User-Agent”) automatically sent by your web browser, such as data associated with the source device’s Internet browser/content delivery software (e.g., Microsoft Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome). The User-Agent information we receive may also include information such as device type (e.g., computer, tablet, mobile device), and/or date/time of visit. Similar to the collection of IP addresses, our website also receives User-Agent information associated with your browser and type of device.
We do not collect sensitive personal information other than as may be necessary to collect payment from our customers for our products and services. Unless we specifically request such sensitive information from you, we ask that you not send it to us or disclose any sensitive personal information to us.
Finally, we may also receive personal information about you from third parties, such as social networks, that help us identify prospective businesses or customers that might be interested in our products and services.

If you are a user of the Chab website or platform located in the EEA, we rely on several processing purposes, such as legitimate interest, as the legal basis for processing the personal data we collect via the website and platform. For instance, we may collect, process or disclose your personal information based on the following bases:

Compliance with legal obligations, particularly in the area of labor and employment law, social security and protection law, data protection law, tax law, and corporate compliance laws.
The provision of your personal data is partly a statutory requirement and partly a contractual obligation.

We take security very seriously. Chab has implemented reasonable technical, administrative and organizational security controls designed to protect the confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of data. These measures include utilization of encryption technologies, creation and maintenance of policy overseeing the management of the security program, role-based access controls, password management, vulnerability management and secure software development protocols.
The time period for which we retain your personal information depends on the purpose for which we use your personal information and the applicable law for that type of personal information and use. Chab will keep your personal information for as long as you are using our services and platform or as long as we have a valid business purpose to do so and, thereafter, for no longer than is required or permitted by law. Generally, if you provide information to us to request a demo, we will keep that information for up to twelve months after your last communication with us. Other information collected during your use of our website will be kept until you withdraw consent or your information is no longer needed for marketing or analytical purposes. We will generally keep personal information collected by our platform or provided by customers for up to three months after the end of our business relationship and subject to our agreement with our customers. All payment information will be deleted three months after the processing unless we are required by law to keep it longer. If you contact us directly using the contact information provided on the Chab website, we will generally retain your contact information for up to three months after we respond to your inquiry. After that, the communications will be deleted from our system unless we are required by law to retain them longer.

If you provide your information to us through a request form or any part of our platform you represent to us that you are at least 18 years old. If you learn that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, you may alert us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will promptly take steps to delete such information.

You may be able to exercise certain privacy rights. The rights available to you depend on our reason for processing your personal information and the requirements of applicable law (i.e., your rights will vary depending on whether you are located In, for example, the European Union, the United Kingdom, Brazil, or California). Specifically, you may have the following rights:
The right to confirmation on the existence of processing and to access the data: You may have the right to obtain from us confirmation as to whether personal information processed, and, where that is the case, to request access to the personal information. Depending on where you are located, you may also have the right to information about public and private entities with which the controller has disclosed personal data.
The right to correct incomplete, inaccurate, or out-of-date data: You may have the right to request that we correct any personal information about you that is inaccurate. Depending on the purpose of the processing, you also have the right to request that we complete the personal information we hold about you where you believe it is incomplete, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
The right to the portability of data: You may have the right to request that we transfer the personal information we have collected about you to another organization, or directly to you, in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format, under certain conditions.
The right to request anonymisation, blocking, or deletion of personal information: You have the right to request the deletion of your personal information we have collected from you, subject to certain conditions and limitations under the law.
The right to revoke consent: Where we rely on your consent to process your personal information, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time with future effect. Depending on where you are located, you may also have the right to request deletion of personal data that was processed based on your consent, or the right to know the consequences of revoking your consent. Such a withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of the processing prior to the consent withdrawal.
The right to object to processing: You may have the right to object to our processing of your personal information, under certain conditions, and we can be required to no longer process your personal information. Such right to object may especially apply if we collect and process your personal information through automated decision making, such as profiling, to better understand your interests in our products and services or for direct marketing. If you have a right to object and you exercise this right, your personal information will no longer be processed by us for such purposes. Such a right to object may, in particular, not exist if the processing of your personal information is necessary to take steps prior to entering into a contract or to perform a contract already concluded.
The right to opt-out of the sale or sharing of personal information: In the event that we share personal information with third parties in a manner that constitutes a "sale" as defined under applicable regulation, you may have the right to opt out of such a "sale."
The right to limit the use and disclosure of sensitive personal information: We will only use sensitive or special personal information as needed for the purposes for which it was collected or with your consent. We do not currently process sensitive personal information for purposes that may be limited under applicable law. If this changes, we will notify you, and you may have the right to restrict such additional uses.
The right to non-discrimination for exercising a privacy right: We will not discriminate against you for exercising any rights.
