Lawful bases for processing include contractual necessity, and our "legitimate interests" or the legitimate interest of others, as further described below. You have the right to request that your Personal Information or Data not be processed by us. However, this may impair the quality of and our ability to deliver our Services.

    1. Contractual Necessity We process some personal information because we need to process the data to perform under our Terms of Use with you, which enables us to provide you with the Eva's Used Books Services (as defined in the Conditions of Use). When we process data due to contractual necessity, failure to provide such personal information will result in your inability to use some or all portions of the Services that require such data. 

    2. Legitimate Interest We may process Personal Information when we believe doing so furthers our legitimate interest. Our legitimate interests may include operation and improvement of the Services; marketing the Services; provision of customer support; protection from fraud or security threats; completion of corporate transactions; and compliance with legal obligations. 

    3. Consent In some cases, we process Personal Information based on the consent you expressly grant to us at the time we collect such data. When we process Personal Information based on your consent, it will be expressly indicated to you at the point and time of collection. To withdraw your consent, please email us at evasunshine613@protonmail.com.

    4. Other Processing Grounds. From time to time we may also need to process Personal Information to comply with a legal obligation, if it is necessary to protect the vital interests of you or other data subjects, or if it is necessary for a task carried out in the public interest. 

  10. Data Retention. We keep the Data we collect for so long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the Data was collected, to perform our contractual and legal obligations, and for any applicable statute of limitations periods for the purposes of bringing and defending claims. We may also indefinitely retain aggregated, anonymized, and/or de-identified data. Pursuant to the CCPA, we will securely retain data logs and records of data requests, outcomes, and response and correspondence timelines for at least 24 months. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Data, we will either delete, de-identify, or anonymize it. If this is not possible (for example, because your Data has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible. We retain information derived from cookies and other tracking technologies for a reasonable period of time from the date such information was created.

    2. What information was involved (list the type of Personal Information); 

    3. What we are doing to help resolve or mitigate the issue (and if there was any delay in providing this notice due to law enforcement investigation); 

    4. What you can do to help us; 

    5. How you can get more information or contact us;

We may limit or reject your request in certain cases, such as if it is frivolous or extremely impractical, if it jeopardizes the rights of others, if it is not required by law, or if the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy in the case in question. In some cases, we may also need you to provide us with additional information to verify your identity and the nature of your request. We will take reasonable steps to respond to all requests within 45 days. Links to Other Websites.
