4. How Personal Data is Shared
Personal information: cPacket will not rent or sell your personal information to parties. We will only share your personal information outside of cPacket for the reasons described below:
cPacket: cPacket may share your personal information with cPacket business partners including sales, rental and solution partners and agents offering cPacket products and services, and vendors acting at our direction. cPacket will do so only to the extent necessary for the specific business partnership, or as otherwise permitted by applicable law.

User content: cPacket provides some opportunities for you to generate your own internet-based content about cPacket and our products and services. Typically, the personal information that you provide in this user content will be shared outside of cPacket as described below.
User-generated comments: cPacket’s website may contain areas where users can transmit or post communications, for example, on blogs or in user forums. Any personal information you submit there will be publicly available, and can be read, collected or used by other users, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. cPacket is not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in such public areas.
Social media widgets: cPacket’s website may include social media features, such as the Facebook Like button, widgets such as the “Share This” button or interactive mini-programs that run on our website. These features may collect online usage information through cookies or web beacons. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on cPacket’s website. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy statement of the social media company providing them.

If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, please contact cPacket at email@example.com.
5. How Personal Data is Stored, Processed and Collected
Storage and processing of your personal data: cPacket may transfer personal data to, and store or process personal data in, countries other than the country in which the personal data originally was collected. Those countries may not have as comprehensive data protection laws as the country from which cPacket initially obtained the personal data. However, cPacket has executed agreements between and among cPacket entities operating in different countries that contain Standard Contractual Clauses (“SCCs”) as defined in the E.U. Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC) and as further authorized in the E.U. General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) Article 46(5), to ensure that adequate safeguards are in place for the protection of personal data. Therefore, when we transfer, store or process personal data in other countries, we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with the SCCs and this Privacy Statement.
Data Retention: cPacket retains your personal data as part of your individual customer record for a period of five years following any activity on your account. After that time, your record will be inactivated and then deleted in accordance with cPacket’s data retention practices. cPacket may retain personal data associated with orders, quotes, or other official business records for a longer period of time to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Security: cPacket puts in place appropriate physical, electronic and processes to safeguard and secure your data. These measures follow generally accepted industry standards both during transmission and once it is received. Since transmission of information over the internet is not completely secure, although cPacket will do its best to protect your personal data, the security of your data transmission to our website cannot be guaranteed.
Data compromise: In the event that your personal data under our control is compromised, cPacket will investigate the situation and take all steps required by applicable law. This includes notification of the competent data protection authority where applicable, and when appropriate notification of those individuals whose personal data may have been compromised. cPacket may take other steps in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.
6. Personal Data Choices
You have certain rights with respect to your personal data, including: the right to information about the personal data we store about you, the right to have your personal data corrected if it is inaccurate, and the right to object, on grounds relating your particular situation, at any time to processing of your personal data. You also have the right, under certain circumstances, to erasure, restriction of processing, and portability of your personal data.
To exercise your rights please contact cPacket at firstname.lastname@example.org. cPacket will respond to your request as soon as is reasonably practicable and in any event within 30 days.

If you have any difficulty exercising your choices or feel that choices you made on particular websites have not been taken into account, please use cPacket’s unsubscribe link.
Opting out of advertising: Both TRUSTe and the National Advertising Initiative provide mechanisms that allow you to opt out of receiving targeted advertising (i.e., advertising that is tailored to your interests based on your online browsing activities) from certain advertising providers. You also may opt out directly with Google and Adobe. For customers in the E.U., you also may opt-out through the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising altogether. You will continue to see generic ads.
Deletion of user content: To request that cPacket remove your user content or personal information from public areas of our website, contact cPacket at firstname.lastname@example.org.
7. Other Websites and Dispute Resolution
