Last Updated: November 21, 2023

Welcome to bilateralstimulation.io BLS GmbH (“we”, “us” or “bilateralstimulation.io”). We provide bilateral stimulation tools to our users (“you”). To provide our Services we need to collect some of your personal data, whether you are using https:/bilateralstimulation.io/ (“Site”) or are communicating with us through other channels (“Other Communication”) (collectively our “Services”). This Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”) is intended to inform you about our practices regarding the collection and use of your data that you may submit to us through our Services.

This Privacy Policy should be read alongside, and in addition to our Terms and conditions.

This Privacy Policy may be updated to reflect changes in legislation, so please review it every now and then. You can always find the most recent version on our Site. If we make substantial changes, we will try to provide a notice prior to any changes taking effect. What constitutes a substantial change will be determined at our sole discretion. By continuing to access or use our Service after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Services.

The Privacy Policy only covers data processing carried out by us. The Privacy Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy practices of any other parties.

How we share your personal data

We only share your PII within bilateralstimulation.io and with those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that need to know the information in order to process it on bilateralstimulation.io’s behalf or to provide the Services and those that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

We do not share your PII with other recipients unless one of the following circumstances applies:

It is necessary for legal reasons. We may share your PII with recipients outside of bilateralstimulation.io if we have a good-faith belief that access to and use of your PII is reasonably necessary to: (i) meet any applicable law, regulation, and/or court order; (ii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; and/or (iii) protect the interests, properties or safety of bilateralstimulation.io, our users or the public as far as in accordance with the law. When possible, we will inform you about such processing.

It is necessary for the compliance with our obligations towards you. To the extent that our external service providers (sub-processors) need access to your PII to help us perform our Services for you, we have taken the appropriate contractual and organizational measures to ensure that your PII are processed in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. You can contact us to receive our current list of providers.

Where do we transfer your data to

We process personal data primarily in the European Union and in the United States.

If you use our Services and are a European resident, you acknowledge and agree that your PII may be transmitted outside of the European Economic Area. In such a case, we transfer your personal data only to a country that is considered to have an adequate level of protection in accordance with the EU Commission's decision or there are appropriate safeguards in place to protect your personal data, such as standard contractual clauses or binding internal company rules. Regardless of the country in which your personal data is processed, we take reasonable technical, legal, and organizational measures to ensure that the level of protection is the same as in the European Union and the European Economic Area.

If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or other reorganization, your information may be transferred as part of that deal. We will notify you (for example, via a message to the email address associated with your account) of any such deal and outline your choices in that event.

What is the storage period

bilateralstimulation.io stores your PII only if it is legally permitted and necessary for the purposes for which the data were collected or we are legally obliged to do so.
