2.2 Use of Your Personal Data
The Company may use Personal Data for the following purposes:
We may share Your personal information in the following situations:
Your California Rights
If you are a resident of California, you may be entitled to the privacy rights described below under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) and other applicable laws. Please note that certain categories of Personal Information, such as PHI, are not covered by these CCPA privacy rights, but may be protected by HIPAA and other laws that provide similar protections.
The Right to Know. You have the right to request:
The Right to Deletion. You have the right to request that SimBioSys delete the Personal Information that we have collected or maintain about you. We may deny your request under certain circumstances, such as if we need to comply with our legal obligations or complete a transaction for which your Personal Information was collected. If we deny your request for deletion, we will let you know the reason why.
Non-discrimination. SimBioSys will not discriminate against you in any way if you choose to exercise your rights under the CCPA. However, if we delete your Personal Information based on a request you make, understand that you may be unable to use or access certain features of our Services.
You may exercise your right to know and your right to deletion twice a year free of charge. To exercise your right to know or your right to deletion, contact us at email@example.com. We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
We will take steps to verify your identity before processing your request to know or request to delete. We will not fulfill your request unless you have provided sufficient information for us to reasonably verify you are the individual about whom we collected Personal Information. If you have an account with us, we will use our existing account authentication practices to verify your identity. If you do not have an account with us, we may request additional information about you to verify your identity. We will only use the Personal Information provided in the verification process to verify your identity or authority to make a request and to track and document request responses, unless you initially provided the information for another purpose.
The Site is hosted in the United States. If you nonetheless choose to use the Site from the European Union or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, then please note that you may be transferring your personally identifiable information outside of those regions to the United States and by providing your personally identifiable information on the Site you consent to that transfer.
Your European Union Privacy Rights : If you are a resident of the European Union, you have certain data protection rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Your Rights Under GDPR. SimBioSys is committed to providing individuals greater control over the processing of their personal data. You are entitled to certain rights under GDPR:
In addition, you can always reach out to your local data protection authority for more information on your rights. The identity of your local data protection authority depends on where you live, so we are unable to identify it for you. If you live in Europe, we have found this link to be helpful: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/reform/what-are-data-protection-authorities-dpas_en
Our Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data Under GDPR. We process personal data in order to perform our testing services and to bill for these services, to perform our contracts with you, and to meet our legal obligations. Additionally, our processing is necessary based on our legitimate interest of providing our healthcare and other services to you. It is likely that you provided your consent for our testing and for certain processing activities either directly to us or through your doctor.
International Transfers: As you may be aware, the United States has not been subject to a universal adequacy decision by the European Commission. This means that the European Commission has not determined that U.S. laws provide the same level of legal protections to individuals concerning their personal data and how it is used. In other words, processing in the U.S. may be undertaken with fewer privacy- and security-focused protections than in Europe, which may increase the risk of data breaches, losses of data, or similar events affecting personal data privacy and security. In any event, SimBioSys is firmly committed to data privacy and security and has implemented a number of measures that are intended to ensure all personal data (including your Personal Information) is protected just as strongly in the U.S. as it might be in Europe, including entering into EU-approved model contract clauses with certain of our processors (including those vendors or service providers we’ve described above) and providing appropriate technical and organizational measures to secure your Personal Information (as discussed above).
2.3 Retention of Your Personal Data
The Company will also retain Usage Data for internal analysis purposes. Usage Data is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of Our Service, or We are legally obligated to retain this data for longer time periods.
2.4 Transfer of Your Personal Data
Your information, including Personal Data, is processed at the Company’s operating offices and in any other places where the parties involved in the processing are located. It means that this information may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of Your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from Your jurisdiction.
2.5 Disclosure of Your Personal Data
Under certain circumstances, the Company may be required to disclose Your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities (e.g. a court or a government agency).
Other legal requirements
The Company may disclose Your Personal Data in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:
2.6 Security of Your Personal Data
The security of Your Personal Data is important to Us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While We strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect Your Personal Data, We cannot guarantee its absolute security.
3. Children’s Privacy
Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13. If You are a parent or guardian and You are aware that Your child has provided Us with Personal Data, please contact Us. If We become aware that We have collected Personal Data from anyone under the age of 13 without verification of parental consent, We take steps to remove that information from Our servers.
If We need to rely on consent as a legal basis for processing Your information and Your country requires consent from a parent, We may require Your parent’s consent before We collect and use that information.

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.
