We implement a variety of commercially reasonable security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. We take appropriate physical, electronic and administrative steps to maintain the security of personal information we collect. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Our Website and App are not intended for children. Charge does not knowingly collect any personal information or data from children under the age of eighteen, and will dispose of any such information if we become aware that it has been provided to us.

the right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information. (We currently do not sell personal information, as “sale” is defined by such law, and we don’t have plans to sell this information.)
To exercise any of these rights, please submit a request to us via email email@example.com or via phone 678.664.9115. We may need to request additional information from you in order to verify your identity. We will begin processing your request once we are able to verify your identity and we will respond to your request within 45 days of its receipt, or we will notify you if we require more time to respond. If we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request, we will not respond to your request. If we find that your verifiable consumer request is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded, we may charge a reasonable fee to respond to your request. We will not discriminate against you for requesting any of the rights outlined above.

If you contact us to exercise on of the rights enumerated above, we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to exercise your rights. We employ this security measure to ensure that your Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who lacks the right to receive it.

Right To Withdraw Consent
Where you have provided consent to Charge to collect and process your Personal Data, you may withdraw it at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of the processing that was carried out prior to withdrawing it. To withdraw your consent, please contact email@example.com. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose(s) to which you originally consented unless there are compelling legitimate grounds for further processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. Whenever you withdraw consent, you acknowledge and accept that this may have a negative influence on the quality of our Website or App.
We reserve the right to charge a reasonable fee if your request to exercise one of your rights is unreasonable or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such case.
