Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer’s hard drive and that help us analyze traffic on our Sites’ pages, personalize our services, the content on our Sites and their  advertising and gauge the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns. Our service providers  may also download cookies on to your computer to post advertising messages and, on our  behalf or on behalf of our advertising partners, gauge the effectiveness of our advertising  messages and compile anonymous data on their use by visitors to our Website. The cookies  placed by our server are readable only by us, and cookies cannot access, read or modify any  other data on a computer.

Many web browsers allow you to manage your preferences. You can set your browser to refuse cookies or delete certain cookies. You may be able to manage other technologies in the same  way that you manage cookies using your browser’s preference.

Accessing, correcting and deleting your information

By law, you have the right to request access to, the correction and/or a copy of the personal information we hold about you. As a general rule, we do not change your personal information  manually as it is very difficult to remotely verify your identity. If your personal information  changes or is incorrect, we ask that you update it. You are also allowed to withdraw your  consent at any time.

Once your personal information is no longer required, we will delete or  anonymize it in accordance with applicable laws.

If you have doubts about whether or not we keep a file containing your personal information and you would like confirmation from us, if you want to correct or access information and are  unable to do so on your own, or if you want the personal information we hold permanently  deleted from our servers, please contact us at SAFETY META WORLD.  Note that if you request  deletion of certain information or withdraw your consent to the collection of your personal  information, we may not be able to provide you with certain services. We will explain the  consequences of deletion at that time to assist you in your decision.

Before providing you with access to your information, we may ask you for specific information to help us confirm your identity and right of access, and to provide you with the personal  information we hold about you, or to make the requested changes. In some cases, applicable  law requires us to refuse to provide you with access to some or all of the personal information  we hold about you, or that we may have destroyed, erased or made anonymous in accordance  with our legal record-keeping obligations and privacy best practices. If we are unable to  provide you with access to your personal information, we will inform you of the reasons why,  subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.
