X.                EU Privacy Rights

Users based in the EU have the following legal rights with respect to their information:

 

·        The right to require Segway Discovery to confirm whether or not their information is being processed, the purpose of any such processing, the recipients of any information that has been disclosed, the period for which their information is to be stored, and whether any automated decision-making processes are used in relation to their information;

·        The right to require Segway Discovery to rectify inaccurate information without undue delay;

·        The right to request the erasure of their information. Subject to certain conditions, Segway Discovery may be required to erase the information in response to such request where:

o   where the processing of the information is based on the user’s consent (and the other circumstances described in the “Legal Bases for Processing Your Information” and “How Your information is Disclosed” sections above no longer apply), if the user withdraws his or her consent; or

o   the user objects to the processing of his or her information and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing.

·        The right to restrict Segway Discovery from processing their information in certain circumstances, such as where the accuracy of that information is disputed or an objection has been raised (see below).

The App does not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that We collect information about Your online activity both while You are using the App and after you leave the App.
