and share personal data and explain your related rights and choices. “We” (or
“Us”) are Connect Library (Legal name: Samples For

applications and any related software (“Offerings”).

Marketing Communications. You can modify how we may contact you through email for
marketing or promotional purposes at any time. This includes the choice to opt
out of receiving emails from us for marketing or promotional purposes
altogether. To modify how we may contact you through email, follow the
instructions provided in the marketing emails we send, or contact us via email

You may have certain
rights relating to your personal data under local data protection laws (e.g.,
the General Data Protection Regulation, the California Consumer Privacy Act,
etc.) or based on your use of our Offerings. Such rights may include:
You can ask us to confirm
if we are processing your personal data, provide you with details about such
processing, and give you a copy of your personal data.
You can ask us to erase
your personal data if certain conditions are met. We are not required to comply
with your request to erase your personal data if the processing of your
personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation or for the
establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
You can object in writing
to any processing of your personal data, which is done on the basis of our
“legitimate interests,” if you believe your fundamental rights and freedoms
outweigh our legitimate interests. If you object in writing to our processing
of your personal data, we shall then have an opportunity to demonstrate that we
have compelling legitimate interests which override your rights and freedoms.
In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data for direct
marketing purposes, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related
to such direct marketing. We will then cease the processing of your personal
data for direct marketing purposes.
You can ask us to provide
your personal data to you in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable
format, or you can ask to have it 'ported' directly to another data controller,
but only where our processing is based on your consent and the processing is
carried out by automated means.
You can ask us to update
or correct certain information; we may verify the accuracy of the data before
rectifying it. For certain information you may be able to update or correct
information by updating your personal setting within the Offerings.
You can ask us to
restrict (i.e., keep but not use) your personal data, but only where: its
accuracy is contested (see "Rectification" above), to allow us
to verify its accuracy; the processing is unlawful, but you do not want it
erased; it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected, but
we still need it to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims; or you have
exercised the right to object, and verification of any overriding grounds is
pending. We can continue to use your personal data following a request for
restriction where we have your consent to establish, exercise, or defend legal
claims, or to protect the rights of another.
You can withdraw your
consent where processing is based on a consent you have previously provided.
Your withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of the
processing done prior to your withdrawal of consent taking effect. If you
have questions about how to withdraw a consent you had provided, please contact
To exercise your rights,
please contact us using at [email protected]. We do not discriminate
based on whether you choose to exercise your choices and rights and will not,
based on your exercise of rights, deny the Offerings to you; charge you different
rates (including through penalties or discounts/benefits); provide a different
level or quality of Offerings; or suggest you may receive such different
treatment. We will process any requests in accordance with applicable
laws within a reasonable period of time. In order to properly process a request,
we may need to verify your identity before taking any request-related actions.
We keep your personal
data for as long as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in our
notices or, if applicable, in accordance with the relevant terms in an
agreement between you and Connect Library. We will keep your personal data longer if required for tax or
accounting purposes, to ensure we would be able to defend or raise a claim, to
resolve disputes, enforce our contractual rights, or where we have a legitimate
need - though we will generally not keep personal data for longer than seven
years following the last date of communication with you. Where personal data is
no longer required, we anonymize or dispose of it in a secure manner.
We Protect Personal Data
We are committed to
implementing and maintaining reasonable and appropriate technical, physical,
and administrative safeguards to protect your personal data. However, no
company, including Connect Library, can guarantee the
absolute security of Internet communications.
Our Sites are not
directed toward children under 18 and we do not knowingly collect personal data
from minors. If you are under 18, please do not use the Sites or Offerings or
share personal data with us. If you learn that anyone younger than 18 has
unlawfully provided us personal data, please contact us at [email protected].
Transfers and Privacy Shield Notice
Personal data we collect may be transferred to, used, and stored
in the United States or Canada in which Connect Library, our affiliates, or
service providers are located; these locations (including the United States)
may not guarantee the same level of protection of personal data as the one in
which you live. By providing us with your personal data, you agree to
such transfer and/or processing. Connect Library assesses the
circumstances involving all cross-border data transfers and has suitable
safeguards in place to require that your personal data will remain protected in
accordance with this notice. In the event of such a transfer, we ensure that: (i) the personal data is transferred to countries recognized
as offering an equivalent level of protection; or (ii) the transfer is made
pursuant to appropriate safeguards, such as the standard contractual clauses,
as applicable either controller to controller (2004/915/EC) or controller to
processor (2010/87/EC), adopted by the European Commission.
Library is closely monitoring
developments and guidance from regulatory authorities in Europe (including the
United Kingdom), Canada, and the United States and will update this Privacy
Notice as needed. If you wish to enquire further about the safeguards used,
please contact us at [email protected].

We may amend, update, or
revise this notice from time to time to reflect changes to our privacy
practices, changing technologies, industry practices, regulatory requirements,

or by other legally acceptable means. We encourage you to periodically review
this notice for the latest information on our privacy practices.
