Rhinestahl takes the security of your Personal Information seriously and has implemented reasonable and commercially viable administrative, physical and technical security measures to help ensure that Personal Information is not lost, abused, altered or open to unauthorized use and/or disclosure. We cannot guarantee that all transmission of data over the Internet is completely secure or error-free.
Your Rights & Choices Relating to My Personal Information
It is your right not to disclose Personal Information to us. You have the right to access and view certain Personal Information you provided to us. In addition, you have the right to determine whether we hold accurate and current Personal Information about you, to request a copy of the Personal Information we hold about you pursuant to applicable law, and to update your Personal Information. Note, however, that we may maintain a copy of the prior Personal Information in our records.
You have the right to request that we delete certain Personal Information about you contacting Rhinestahl Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pursuant to applicable laws, we may retain certain information about you even after you request that we delete your Personal Information.
In certain circumstances, you have the right to receive the Personal Information you have provided to us in an electronic format and to request that we transmit that Personal Information to another data controller.
Rhinestahl’s compliance with these requests may be conditioned upon your provision of appropriate evidence of your identity such as a color photocopy of your passport certified by a notary plus an original copy of a utility bill showing your current address.
California Information-Sharing Disclosure: California residents may request a list of all third parties with respect to which we have disclosed any information about you for direct marketing purposes and the categories of information disclosed.

California Right to Object. Though we currently have no policy of selling your information to any third party, if you are a California resident, to the extent provided under California law, you may object in writing to the sale or other sharing of your personal information, and we will refrain from doing so without an economic impact on you, except to the extent, if any, that our inability to make use of your data impacts the economic value of our business relationship.
