4. Legal Basis for Processing Personal Information

Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal data described above will depend on the personal data concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

However, we will normally collect personal data from you only (i) where we need the personal data to perform a contract with you; (ii) where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights; or (iii) where we have your consent to do so. We have a legitimate interest in operating our Services and communicating with you as necessary to provide these Services, for example when responding to your queries, improving our platform, undertaking marketing, or for the purposes of detecting or preventing illegal activities.

In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal data from you or may otherwise need the personal data to protect your vital interests or those of another person.

If we ask you to provide personal data to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal data is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal data).

5. Third-party Services

Through the Services, you may access various third-party offerings, such as by clicking on links to those offerings from within the Services.

6. Security

Tau Commerce prioritizes the protection of your information and employs a range of security technologies and measures to safeguard it from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. These measures are tailored to provide a level of security commensurate with the risks associated with processing your personal data. However, it's important to acknowledge that no service can guarantee absolute security. Despite our efforts to protect your data, unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or breaches may still occur.

7. Data Retention

We retain personal data collected from you when there's a legitimate ongoing business necessity (e.g., providing requested services or complying with legal, tax, or accounting requirements). When there's no longer a legitimate business need to process your personal data, we'll either delete or anonymize it. If deletion or anonymization isn't immediately feasible (e.g., due to data stored in backup archives), we'll securely store your personal data and isolate it from further processing until deletion becomes feasible.

Registered users can access specific information associated with their Accounts by logging into our Services or contacting us at privacy@taucommerce.com. Upon termination of your Account, any public activity associated with it may persist on our servers and remain accessible to the public. To maintain your privacy and security, we may verify your identity before updating or removing your information.

Additionally, the information you provide may be periodically archived or stored by us for disaster recovery purposes in the ordinary course of business. Your ability to access and rectify your information may be temporarily restricted in scenarios where doing so could impede our legal obligations, hinder our ability to investigate, assert, or defend legal claims, entail disclosing personal data about a third party, or result in breaching a contract or disclosing proprietary business information belonging to Tau Commerce or a third party.
