Where Information Is Processed
EQResource is based in USA. No matter where you are located, you consent to the processing, transfer and storage of your information in and to USA and other countries. The laws of USA and other countries governing data collection and use may not be as comprehensive or protective as the laws of the country where you live.
Processing Your Data
The laws in some jurisdictions require that we tell you about the legal grounds we rely upon to use, process or disclose your personal data. To the extent those laws apply, our legal grounds are as follows:
Consent: At times we may collect, process, store, transfer or disclose your personal data on the basis of your implied or explicit consent.
To Fulfill Our Contractual Obligations to You: In order to fulfill our contractual obligations to you, we must collect, process, and store your personal data and information. We must handle your personal data in this manner in order to create your EQResource account. Furthermore, we may, at times, have to transfer and/or disclose your personal data to third parties in order to fulfill other of our contractual obligations to you. For example, we may have to transfer certain information concerning your EQResource account to our payment processors for any Premium Subscriptions you purchase.
Furtherance of Our Legitimate Interests: We may collect, process, store, transfer or disclose your personal data in furtherance of those legitimate interests of ours which are not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms as set forth in the applicable laws. These legitimate interests include but are not limited to:
Providing you with the Services;
Protecting our users, staff and property; and
Collecting information on how you use the Services in order to optimize the design of the Site.
Communicating with you via e-mail for services you have explicitly opted into (e.g., notifications of replies or private conversations) or for communications regarding your account.
Legal Compliance: We may collect, process, store, transfer or disclose your personal data to comply with our legal obligations.
Disclosure of Your Information
There are specific circumstances under which we may share your information with certain third parties:
Legal Requirements: We may disclose your information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of EQResource, (iii) protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
Individuals in some jurisdictions have certain legal rights to obtain confirmation of whether we hold personal data about them, to access personal data we hold about them (including, in some cases, in portable form), and to obtain its correction, update, amendment or deletion in appropriate circumstances. They may also object to our uses or disclosures of personal data, to request a restriction on its processing, or withdraw any consent, though such actions typically will not have retroactive effect. They also will not affect our ability to continue processing data in lawful ways.
How do I correct, update, amend, or delete the personal data you have about me?
Your Profile Page on our Forums, in which you can correct, update, amend, or delete certain personal data, you can also request other modifications from us directly. Please write us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the words "Personal Data Request" in the subject of your message, along with an explanation of what data subject right you are seeking to exercise. For your protection, we may take steps to verify identity before responding to your request.
To dispose of personal data, we may anonymize it or take other appropriate steps. Some data may be retained where there is a reason to restrict the processing of data instead of deleting it. In such instances, we may anonymize the data rather than deleting it. Data may persist in copies made for backup and business continuity purposes for additional time.
If you do not wish to receive personalized advertising that is delivered by third parties outside of the control of EQResource, you may be able to exercise that choice through opt-out programs that are administered by third parties. If you choose to opt-out of personalized advertisements, you will, instead, receive generalized advertisements from our partners.

We value your trust in providing us your personal data, thus we are striving to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it.
