Types of Personal Data We Collect and Process
Data Transfers to Third Parties
Slice has entered contracts with these third parties that provides that such data may only be processed for limited and specified purposes consistent with the consent provided by the individual and that the recipient will provide the same level of protection as the Privacy Shield Principles; and that they will notify Slice if it makes a determination that it can no longer meet this obligation.
Where we process personal data collected via our Services for our own business purposes, you have the right to access personal data that we hold about you and request that we correct, amend, or delete it if it is inaccurate or processed in violation of the Privacy Shield. These access rights may not apply in some cases, including where providing access is unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances or where it would violate the rights of someone other than the individual requesting access. If you would like to request access to, correction, amendment, or deletion of your personal data, you can submit a written request to the contact information provided above. We may request specific information from you to confirm your identity. In some circumstances we may charge a reasonable fee for access to your information.

Slice is committed to cooperating with the DPAs in the investigation and resolution of complaints brought under the Privacy Shield and all other matters related to personal data and anything under the jurisdiction of the DPAs.

You may have the option to select binding arbitration for the resolution of your complaint under certain circumstances, provided you have taken the following steps: (1) raised your complaint directly with us and provided us the opportunity to resolve the issue; (2) made use of the independent dispute resolution mechanism identified in the previous section; and (3) raised the issue through the relevant DPA and allowed the US Department of Commerce an opportunity to resolve the complaint at no cost to you.
