You may request to access or correct the personal information you have stored with us, by sending us an e-mail. You may also correct, update or remove certain information, or deactivate your account, through your account or website settings.
We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
We may retain your Personal Information (as well as your all Users Information) for as long as your User Account is active or as otherwise needed to provide you with our Services.

9. Data Retention
We may keep your information for as long as your account is active, and longer as needed (for example, if we are legally obligated to keep it further, or need it to protect our interests).
GRAMSEED.COM has implemented security measures designed to protect the Personal Information you share with us, including physical, electronic and procedural measures. Among other things, we offer HTTPS secure access to most areas on our Services; the transmission of sensitive payment information (such as a credit card number) through our designated purchase forms is protected by an industry-standard SSL/TLS encrypted connection; and we regularly maintain a PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) certification. We also regularly monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks and regularly seek new ways and Third-Party Services for further enhancing the security of our Services and protection of our Visitors’ and Users’ privacy.
However – regardless of the measures and efforts are taken by GRAMSEED.COM, we cannot and do not guarantee the absolute protection and security of your Personal Information, your Users-of-Users’ Information or any other User Content you upload, publish or otherwise share with GRAMSEED.COM or anyone else.
We therefore encourage you to set strong passwords for your User Account and User Website and avoid providing us with any sensitive information which you believe its disclosure could cause you substantial or irreparable harm. Furthermore, because certain areas on our Services are less secure than others (for example, if you set your Support forum ticket to be “Public” instead of “Private”, or if you browse to a non-SSL page), and since e-mail and instant messaging are not recognized as secure forms of communications, we request and encourage you not to share any Personal Information on any of these areas or via any of these methods.

1.Un-identified and non-identifiable information pertaining to a Visitor or un-identified User, which may be made available to us, or collected automatically via his/her use of the Services (“Non-personal Information”). Such Non-personal Information does not enable us to identify the Visitor or User from whom it was collected. The Non-personal Information collected by us mainly consists of technical and aggregated usage information, such as Visitors’ and Users’ browsing and ‘click-stream’ activity on the Services, session heatmaps and scrolls, non-identifying information regarding the Visitor’s or User’s device, operating system, internet browser, screen resolution, language and keyboard settings, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, etc.

In any event, we recommend that you do not post any information (or use any posting means to post information) you would not want to be made public on these areas.
