Data Rights and Protection
Taskaty has the utmost respect for our customers’ privacy and information protection. Given the ever-changing regulatory environment, we strive to stay ahead of the curve. In our mission to ethically and lawfully serve our customers, we have the following policies in place in order to adhere to international and domestic law:
Taskaty wrote our terms of service to make it as understandable and straightforward as possible. Our valued customers are able to give and rescind consent at any time. If at any time you wish to remove consent, please email our Data Protection Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional details are provided below in our “Data Protection Officer” description.
Timely Breach Notification:
In the event of a data breach, Taskaty will notify our associated data controllers and customers within 72 hours. In addition to outlining the nature of the breach, the breadth and actions involved to remedy the situation will be detailed.
Right to Data Access:
If at any time a customer wishes to access his or her existing data profile, Taskaty will provide a free electronic copy of the data we collected about that customer. This report will also include the various ways the information has been used.
Right to Be Forgotten:
If at any time customer discontinues their relationship with taskaty.com, the customer can request that his or her personal data be wholly erased from our records.
This gives users rights to their own data. Customers will be able to obtain their data from taskaty.com in an electronic report and reuse that same data in different environments outside of ours.
Privacy by Design:
Taskaty has a full and detailed map of our data collection process and the various parties privy to that data. Taskaty has specifically designed its systems and trained its staff to maintain customer privacy. We strive to continue to improve and adapt this design to be forward-looking.
Data Protection Officer:
Taskaty has appointed a Data Protection Officer who can be reached at email@example.com. This internal officer will be able to rescind customer consent as requested, alert stakeholders of a data breach, provide access to data reports, ensure the right to be forgotten, establish data portability as requested, and oversee privacy by design with fiduciary responsibility.
Mutual Termination Rights. We offer additional mutual rights to terminate the terms for the cause. In addition, customers are free to terminate at any time (and we offer a refund for customers’ first 14 days on Taskaty).
