What Data Is Collected By Atom Through Its Platform
Atom only collects the data which is member specific and are unique identifiers of them, and that too for billing purposes and to improve its services. Atom does not sell or release any user data to any of the third parties until or unless situations related to legal matters where we, as an entity, are requested by official investigators, attorneys, Government agencies or a competent court with a legal warrant. In such instances, the accused member of the service would be notified and will have the opportunity to present its information or to conduct any relevant proceedings in the matter.
We retain your data as long as it is deemed necessary for us to operate our business, serve you better and process information related to transactions, billing, charge backs, settlements, taxes or other business, financial or legal matters. Even if you discontinue our services and no longer a member, we would still be retaining some of your data to meet our legitimate business obligations and at any point in time would also be deleting it completely from our records or at least isolating it to an extent that it becomes inaccessible for anyone.
How Atom Responds To Criminal Investigations
Atom respects and fully cooperates with law enforcement agencies in matters pertaining to legal matters. The agency, investigator or competent court is required to contact Atom with a subpoena having minimal information about the member or at least unique identifiers about the member. In a criminal investigation Atom would not divulge any facts regarding the member.
