Our Lawful Basis for Processing
AffableBPM’s processing of your personal information may be supported by the following lawful bases:
Data Subject Rights
For purposes of the CCPA, we do not “sell” your personal information.
In accordance with applicable law, you may have the right to request: (i) access to your personal information; (ii) rectification of your personal information; (ii) erasure of your personal information; (iii) restriction of processing of your personal information; (iv) portability of your personal information; (v) objection to the lawfulness of the processing of personal information; (vi) to withdraw your consent; and (vii) to not be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, subject to certain exceptions prescribed by law.
Access:You have the right to obtain confirmation that we process data related to you and you have a right to a copy of that data.
Objection:Please note that if you object to the lawfulness of the processing of personal information, this may affect our ability to carry out tasks for your benefit or to conduct business and provide services to the customer, supplier for whom you are acting, or to consider applications of employment applicants and/or hire you. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
We will process such requests in accordance with applicable laws. To protect your privacy, we will take steps to verify your identity before fulfilling your request.
If you are a California resident, you have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by AffableBPM for the exercise of your rights conferred by the CCPA.
If you are a resident of Nevada, you have the right to opt-out of the sale of certain personal information to third parties who intend to license or sell that personal information. You can exercise this right by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Nevada Do Not Sell Request” and providing us with your name and the email address associated with your account. Please note that we do not currently sell your personal information as sales are defined in Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 603A.
Security of Your Personal Information

AffableBPM uses commercially reasonable efforts to put measures in place that are designed to secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. We use commercially reasonable efforts to follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. That said, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot guarantee the security of any information you provide to us. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable laws, we do not accept liability for unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. If you have any questions about security on the Website, you can contact us at email@example.com.
