More on Marketing
We do not currently share your personal data with third parties for their direct marketing purposes without first obtaining your consent. We may, however, provide non-personal data to third parties to help facilitate the function of our Services. We may also use data you provide to us, such as your interest in other Services we offer when you purchase a product from us, to market other Services we believe will interest you. You can always opt out of these marketing communications by following the opt-out link in the applicable marketing message, or by contacting us at Contact@JessicaAbel.com

Cross-Border Data Transfers
We process data both inside and outside of the United States, and we rely on legal mechanisms to lawfully transfer data across borders. Countries where we process data, such as the United States, potentially have less protective laws than the privacy protections of your own country. We are aware of the July 16, 2020, ruling by the European Court of Justice and the September 8, 2020 opinion by the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) invalidating the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework. We will continue to wait for guidance from the European Commission, Swiss FDPIC and the US Government regarding how to best protect your data in the event of cross-border transfers. Although this decision by the CJEU invalidated the use of Privacy Shield, SCCs remain in place and we may transfer data from the EU, EEA and Switzerland using SCCs.
NON-LEGALESE TRANSLATION: We may process your data in the United States or abroad, (e.g., working with foreign-based email marketing teams or foreign-based call centers). There was a recent decision from an influential court in the European Union that requires any data transfer between the US and EU to use “Standard Contractual Clauses,” which are certain provisions in data-transfer agreements that must be agreed to between the controller (us) and the processor (the entity or person we may transfer your data to in order to enhance your experience of our Service). We will use these Standard Contractual Clauses when we transfer your data abroad.
Data We Do Not Collect
We do not collect any sensitive data about you. Sensitive data refers to data that includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data. We do not collect any information about criminal convictions and offenses. You can read more about this data here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/reform/rules-business-and-organisations/legal-grounds-processing-data/sensitive-data/what-personal-data-considered-sensitive_en
