Keeping Information Accurate / Access and Correction:
Having accurate information about you enables Serial 1 to give you better service. You can help Serial 1 keep personal information up to date by keeping Serial 1 informed of any changes, such as a change of address, telephone number or any other circumstances.
Where required by law, you may have the right to access, verify and amend the information Serial 1 has about you after Serial 1 has received your written request and authenticated your identity.
In some situations, Serial 1 may not be able to provide access to certain personal information as the right to access personal information is not absolute. If Serial 1 does not provide you with the requested information, Serial 1 will notify you in writing and explain Serial 1’s reason(s) for not fulfilling your request.
Despite Serial 1’s efforts, errors sometimes do occur. If you identify any personal information that is out-of-date, incorrect or incomplete, let Serial 1 know and Serial 1 will make the corrections promptly and use every reasonable effort to communicate these changes to other parties who may have inadvertently received incorrect or out-of-date personal information from Serial 1.
Retention and Destruction of Personal Information:
The amount of time Serial 1 will retain personal information varies, depending on the services Serial 1 has provided and the nature of the personal information that Serial 1 holds. Serial 1 retains personal information for such period as is necessary for Serial 1 to maintain sufficient information, so that Serial 1 may respond to any issues that arise later or as is required by law.
Legal requirements, however, may require us to retain some or all the personal information we hold for a period that is longer than that for which we might otherwise hold.
When personal information is no longer required by Serial 1 or by law, Serial 1 will either convert it into an aggregated non-identifying form or Serial 1 will appropriately destroy or erase the personal information in a manner that is in accordance with Serial 1’s current policies and procedures.
You control the choice of receiving marketing information or marketing calls. For instructions on opting out, please see the section entitled, “How do I Opt-In or Opt-Out of Promotional Communications?„
Serial 1 and third-party companies we work with use tracking technologies (including cookies and pixel tags) on our Website in order to provide tailored advertisements on your behalf and on behalf of other advertisers across the Internet. Serial 1 and these companies may collect information about your activity on our sites and other sites, as well as your interaction with our advertising and other communications, and use this information to determine which ads you see on websites and applications.
We may not recognize Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) signals from your web browsers or device. This is because there is not yet a universally accepted standard on how to interpret and respond to DNT signals, which often conflict with other settings. If and when a standard is established, we will re-examine how we can appropriately respond to DNT signals.
DOES SERIAL 1 SHARE MY INFORMATION?
We may share your personal information with our affiliate entities throughout the world to assist us in providing any services to you, offering any personalized experiences, offering products or services that may be of interest to you, and to process online orders and other requests.

We may also share personal information with our third party service providers to the extent necessary for those providers to provide services to us, including, but not limited to, technology service providers, payment service providers, marketing agencies, professional advisers and other suppliers.
We take steps to ensure that these companies are contractually obligated to keep the personal information that we provide to them confidential and to use such information only as we permit.
We may also share personal information with nonaffiliated companies that market Serial 1 branded products and services, or in connection with your financial obligations concerning a Serial 1 product or service. These companies have their own privacy practices and notices.
If we sell all or part of our business or assets or are otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy, we may transfer your personal information to one or more third parties as part of that transaction.
There may be instances where the law requires we disclose your personal information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process, to respond to a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or another government agency, to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against any legal claims, or when we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or respond to suspected breaches of our Website terms and conditions, illegal activities, fraud, or to protect the safety, rights, or property of you, us, or a third party. Serial 1 implements contractual guarantees to help protect your personal information.
