The Concrete Countertop Institute, LLC may also collect information about how Users use our Web site, for example, by tracking the number of unique views received by the pages of the Web site or the domains from which Users originate. We may use “cookies” to track how Users use our Web site. A cookie is a piece of software that a Web server can store on the Users’ PC and use to identify the User should they visit the Web site again. While not all of the information that we collect from Users is personally identifiable, it may be associated with personally identifiable information that Users provide us through our Web site.

If you are a client, then we store contact information and invoices in our online portal. The good news is that we collect only the minimal set of personal data that is required to deliver the service. For example, we collect your physical address for invoicing and tax purposes. We may collect your credit card data because we need to charge you upon purchase although we do not store your credit card in a way that can be compromised. We collect your email because we need to contact you regarding your orders, the status of the services, important functionality updates and, where you have consented to receive such communications, contact you with newsletters and promotions. We use cookies because they help us show relevant content to our website visitors and advertise based on these interactions. We don’t use any of the data collected for profiling or other secondary purposes and we do not sell it to anyone. You can edit your information from your profile at any time by logging in to our billing portal or request that we remove your account from our billing portal.

Right to be Forgotten

Under the GDPR every client could request “to be forgotten”, meaning all their data has to be deleted and never used again, except in certain circumstances, which may include having to keep processing your personal information to comply with a legal obligation.
