We use different categories of cookies, including first-party cookies that are served directly by us to your computer or mobile device, and third-party cookies that are served by others through our Site. We use first-party and third-party cookies for a number of reasons. Some cookies are needed for technical reasons for our Site to operate, which are referred to as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Site.

We will take reasonable precautions to protect your Personal Data in our possession from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any actual or suspected Personal Data breach. In the event of any such breach, we have procedures in place to work with applicable regulators. In addition, where we are legally required to do so, we will notify you of breaches affecting your Personal Data.
Your Personal Data will be retained for so long as we reasonably need to use it for the purposes set out above. In some cases, we retain Personal Data for longer, if doing so is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, or collect fees owed, or is otherwise permitted or required by applicable law, rule, or regulation. Afterwards, we may retain some information in a depersonalized or aggregated form, but not in a way that would identify you personally.
By law you have the right to:
If you object to the processing of your Personal Data, or if you have provided your consent to processing and you later choose to withdraw it, we will respect that choice in accordance with our legal obligations.
Your objection (or withdrawal of any previously given consent) could mean that we are unable to perform the actions necessary to achieve the purposes set out above (see “How We Use Your Personal Data”), or that you may not be able to make use of the services and products offered by Method. Please note that even after you have chosen to withdraw your consent we may be able to continue to process your Personal Data to the extent required or otherwise permitted by law, in particular in connection with exercising and defending our legal rights or meeting our legal and regulatory obligations. If you have provided your consent and wish to withdraw your consent, please follow the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose(s) to which you originally consented, unless there are compelling legitimate grounds for further processing which override your interests, rights, and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims. Withdrawal of consent to receive marketing communications will not affect the processing of Personal Data necessary for us to provide products or services to you necessitated by any contractual relationship you or your firm has with Method.
