Session and First Party Cookies
The types of cookies that we use are referred to as “session” cookies and “first party” cookies. Session cookies are temporary, and are automatically deleted once you close your Internet browser.

Laws governing data collection and use in other regions of the world may differ from U.S. law. If you are visiting this Website from a country other than the United States, the various communications you send and receive will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international boundaries to the United States. This includes transmissions containing your Personal Information.
If you are located in the European Union and choose to provide us information about you, you should be aware that information you provide or which is otherwise collected on the Website, App or through any services rendered may be transferred to countries (including the United States) which do not have data protection laws deemed as adequate as those in the European Union.
- How Long Do We Keep Your Information?
- Your Privacy Rights
CDLLife will ensure that you can exercise various rights relating to your Personal Information, including rights as provided by various data protection laws. CDLLife therefore informs you that, where applicable under relevant law, you are entitled:
- to have access to your Personal Information upon simple request – that is, you may receive a copy of such data upon request, unless for example, such data is made directly available to you within your personal account;
- to have access upon simple request, and free of charge, the categories and names of addresses of third parties that have received Personal Information for direct marketing purposes;

- to obtain the deletion of your Personal Information in the situations set forth by applicable data protection law (the “right to be forgotten”).
- to withdraw your consent to the data processing without affecting the lawfulness of processing, where your Personal Information has been collected and processed on the basis of your consent;
- to object to the processing of your Personal Information under certain circumstances, in which case we may ask you to justify your request by explaining to us your particular situation;
- to request limits to the processing of your data, when allowed by and in circumstances set forth under applicable law;

Under certain laws, you may also have the right to “opt-out” of having your Personal Information sold to a third party. This right to “opt-out” does not include the case of a merger, sale, financing, acquisition, or other transaction involving all or part of CDLLife; in such instances, your information may still be involved in a transaction.
For deletion, or ”right to be forgotten” requests, we will undertake a good faith effort to accommodate requests for access to or deletion of personal information. However, these requests may be subject to the evaluation of additional factors, including disproportionate burden or expense, or the risk to the rights, including the privacy rights, of others.
We will strive and work to resolve any inquiry you may have regarding our privacy practices. If you have any questions about these rights, would like to exercise any of these rights, or if you need any assistance with privacy related matters, please contact us as described in the “Contact Us” section below.
