The information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, the region or general location where your computer or device is accessing the internet, browser type, operating system, and other usage information about the use of our website, including a history of the pages you view.

7. Transfer of personal data to the United States
ValGenesis is a global entity headquartered in the United States. Consequently, personal data we collect about you may be processed in the United States. By requesting that we respond to your inquiry, you acknowledge that your personal information can be processed in the United States. The United States has neither sought nor received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Commission under Article 45 of the GDPR. Pursuant to and in compliance with Article 46 of the GDPR, ValGenesis provides appropriate data safeguards by entering into binding data protection clauses, enforceable by data subjects in the EEA and the UK. These clauses have been fashioned and modified based upon the guidance of the European Commission and are updated as necessary.
8. Security of personal information
To help protect the privacy of data and personally identifiable information you transmit through use of this website, we maintain physical, technical, and administrative safeguards. We recurrently update and test our security technology. We restrict access to your personal data to those employees who need to know that information to provide benefits or services to you. In addition, we train our employees about the importance of confidentiality and maintaining the privacy and security of your information. Accordingly, we are committed to applying appropriate disciplinary measures to enforce our privacy responsibilities.
9. If you represent an organization
You have choices when it comes to the technology you use and the data you choose to share. When we ask you to provide personal data, you have the option to decline. If you choose not to provide the data required to provide you with a response to an inquiry, we will be unable to respond.
