If you are visiting from the European Economic Area (EEA) or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States and by providing your personal data, you consent to that transfer. EEA data protection law makes a distinction between organizations that process personal data for their own purposes (known as “controllers”) and organizations that process personal data on behalf of other organizations (known as “processors”). BEESY, LLC is the controller with respect to information you provide through the Services. If you are a data subject in the EEA, you have the right to access, rectify, or erase any personal data we have collected about you through the Services.

You may withdraw your consent at any time for any data processing we do based on the consent you have provided to us. You may exercise your rights by contacting us as provided below. We may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and process your request. If you would like to submit a complaint about our use of your personal data or response to your requests regarding your personal data, you may contact us or submit a complaint to the data protection regulator in your jurisdiction. We will not process your personal data unless we have a lawful basis for processing. Our lawful bases include where: (a) you have given your consent to our processing for a specific purpose; (b) processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you or to comply with a legal obligation; or (c) processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by BEESY, LLC or a third-party controller, including our clients.
