7. Data Storage and Retention

While Nava is a Canadian company, the data you provide through the Service may be stored and processed by third parties in countries around the world. You authorize Nava and third parties acting on our behalf to process your data in any country of their choosing, which may cause your data, including personal data, to be subject to privacy protections and legal rights that may not be equivalent to those in your country.

Nava deletes all of your personal data and business information from any electronic devices in our control at the end of each day and every week, or as per your instructions.

Should your relationship with Nava come to an end, we will promptly return or dispose of any other personal data and confidential information Nava has on file, in line with our legal obligations.

8. DO NOT TRACK DISCLOSURE

Do Not Track ("DNT") is a web or device setting that allows you to request that receivers of personal data stop their tracking activities. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser or device or use alternative consumer choice mechanisms, your browser or device sends a special signal to websites, analytics companies, advertising networks, plug-in providers and other web services you encounter to stop tracking your activity. Currently, there are no DNT technology standards and, as a result, we do not respond to DNT requests.

9. CALIFORNIA "SHINE THE LIGHT" RIGHT

If you are a California resident, California Civil Code 1798.83 grants you the right to request disclosure of the categories of personal information we provided to third parties, and the names and addresses of these third parties, for direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make this request, please contact us using the contact information set forth below.

Please note that you may only make this request once per year.

10. YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1798.120 permits you to opt-out of the sale and sharing of your personal information to third parties.  Currently, Nava does not sell or share your personal information to third parties and as such no opt-out of the sale or sharing of such personal information is necessary.  Although Nava does not sell or share your personal information to third parties, Nava does provide a general opt-out right to all of our users.  If you have any other questions about our privacy practices, please email us at hello@navaventures.io.

11. Change of Ownership or Business Transition

In the event of, or in preparation for, a change of ownership or control of Nava or a business transition such as the sale of some or all Nava's assets, we may disclose and/or transfer your personal data to third-parties who will have the right to continue to collect and use such data in the manner set forth in this Privacy Policy.

12. Security
