Applicable legal grounds: legitimate interests (in order to allow us to change our business).

Duration of Processing

Trans Plus maintains personal information only as long as it is required to fulfill the purpose under which it was gathered, unless required by law to retain for longer periods or other purposes.  Where Trans Plus determines that personal information is no longer required, we will securely destroy such information as soon as it is commercially reasonable to do so.

Sharing of Information

We may also share personal information with certain third parties such as:

  • Third-party service providers who provide website, application development, hosting, maintenance, and other services to us, including allowing us to analyze the usage of our website, engagement on our social media channels, our ability to effectively communicate with our customers and potential customers, and understand ways to improve our products or services. These third parties may have access to, or process personal information as part of providing those services for us. We limit the information provided to these service providers to that which is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions, and our contracts with them require them to maintain the confidentiality of such information;
  • Law enforcement and governmental entities when required by law. For greater clarity, we may disclose personal information or other information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with applicable laws, in response to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena or warrant, or to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement or other governmental agencies; and
  • An acquirer, successor or assignee as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of assets, or similar transaction, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of our business assets.

Selling of Personal Information

Trans Plus does not collect any personal information for the purpose of selling that personal information.  Despite this, some jurisdictions require us to make the following additional statements:

  • We have not sold any personal information in the past twelve months.
  • We do not sell personal information to third parties.

Requesting access, changes, or limits on your own Information

Under applicable law, you may request from us the following:

  • a copy of any of your personal information which we may have;
  • to update or correct any inaccuracies in your personal information that we may have;
  • to request that we limit our use of your personal information, including but not limited to instructing us not using your personal information for a specific purpose;
  • to erase some or all of your personal information that we do not have a legal entitlement to keep; or
  • withdraw any previously provided consent for our use of your personal information.

To make any of the above requests to access, change, or impose limits on the use of your personal information, please contact us at privacy@transplus.io with details of your request.  For the purposes of verifying your identity we may ask that you provide us sufficient personal details to allow us to identify you, which may include but may not be limited to your full legal name, your email address, your phone number, and/or your mailing or physical address.  Such information will only be used for the purpose of verifying your identity.

In addition, while Trans Plus does not sell personal information to third parties, some jurisdictions still require that we provide you a means to opt out of the sale of your personal information to third parties.
