are a “Data Subject” with certain protected privacy rights concerning your
“Personal Data.” Your Personal Data may identify you as a person, and thus is
often referred to as Personally Identifiable Information ("PII"). PII is included in
the term “Personal Data” that is used in this Privacy Policy
1. Who Collects Your Information With Our Services?
We do. We collect information from you when you use the Services, and we are
responsible for protection of your information.

as a result the Services may need to use GPS or other location-based services to
identify your physical location. With your consent, the Services may also access your
device’s calendar, contacts, call history, camera roll, or other device-stored information,
in order to facilitate and provide the Services.

We need to collect your Personal Data so that we can provide the Services, give you
access to the social media functionality of the Services, respond to your requests for
information and demonstrations, add you to our emailing lists, and process your
requests to access our Services. We also collect aggregate information to help us
better design the Services. We collect Log Data for monitoring purposes to help us to
diagnose problems with the hosting servers, administer the Services, calculate usage
levels, and otherwise provide the Services to you.

6. Are There Other Ways My Personal Data Could Be Shared?
You may elect to share certain Personal Data with individuals or with the public via your

provide. By using the Services, you are publicly sharing Personal Data and other
information via social media. Be aware that when you choose to share Personal Data
and other information with friends, public officials, or with the public at large, you may be
disclosing sensitive information, or information from which sensitive information can be

please send an e-mail to, or call us at

If you are an EU citizen and believe that we have misused your Personal Data, you
have the right to contact the European Data Protection Supervisor (“EDPS”) to ask the
EDPS for advice on how to exercise your rights or to ask the EDPS to investigate a
complaint. For more information, see EDPS Complaints.
8. How Do We Store and Protect Your Information?
A. After receiving your Personal Data, it will be stored for future use. We use a third
party host to store your Personal Data, currently Google Cloud. We will take care to use
ME1 25729944v.1
a hosting service that provides physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in place
to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and
correctly use the information we collect. Unfortunately, no data transmission or data
storage solution can ever be completely secure. As a result, although we take
industry-standard steps to protect your information (e.g., strong encryption), we cannot
ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or receive from us or
that we store on our or our service providers' systems.
B. If you are using the Services from outside of the USA, you understand that your
connection may be sent through and to servers located in the USA, and the information
you provide may be stored in web servers and internal systems located within the USA.
By accessing or using the Services or otherwise providing information to us, you
consent to the processing, transfer, and storage of information in and to the USA, where
you may not have the same rights and protections as you do under local law.
C. Your Personal Data is stored for as long as reasonably required for its purpose or
for any additional period required by law (if any). Account information is deleted when
you or when we delete your account. We may store information longer for legitimate
business reasons (for example, Personal Data may remain in backups for a reasonable
period of time), or as legally required. Otherwise, we store your Personal Data until you
request us to remove it from our servers. We store our logs and other technical records
9. How Do We Use Cookies And Other Tracking Technologies?
A. We or our service providers may use third party code and libraries that do employ
“cookies” to collect information and provide services, as well as to improve services.
“Cookies” are a type of tracking technology that a web server may place on your hard
disk as a text file to store your preferences. Once you choose to provide Personal
Data, this information may be linked to the data stored in a cookie. You can set your
browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, and you can decide to accept or reject
the cookie, or delete it upon leaving the Services. Please note, however, that if your
browser is set not to accept cookies, or you refuse cookies, you may not be able to use
some portions of the Services.
B. We or our service providers may also use "pixel tags," "web beacons," "clear
GIFs," “embedded links” and other commonly-used information-gathering tools in
connection with some parts of the Services and messages. We may use these tools for
such purposes as compiling aggregate statistics about Services usage and response
rates. A pixel tag is an electronic image (often a single pixel), that is ordinarily not
visible to visitors. Pixel tags allow us and our service providers to count users who have
accessed certain parts of the Services, to deliver customized services, and to help
determine the effectiveness of our Services. When used in certain messages, pixel
tags can inform the sender of the whether and when the message has been opened.
C. As you use the Internet, you leave a trail of electronic information at each website
and mobile application that you visit or use. This information, which is sometimes
referred to as "clickstream data”, can be collected and stored by a website's server.
ME1 25729944v.1
Clickstream data can reveal the type of computer and browsing software you use and
the address of the website from which you linked to the website. We may use
clickstream data as a form of non-Personal Data to determine how much time users
spend on certain parts of our Services, how users navigate through the Services, and
how we may tailor our Services to better meet the needs of users. We will only use this
information to improve our Services.
D. Many modern web browsers give you the option to send a “Do Not Track” signal
to the websites you visit, indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. At this time, the
Services do not specifically respond to “Do Not Track” signals.
10. Links to Other Sites
We may provide links to certain third party mobile applications and websites on which
you may be able to obtain information or use services. These third party mobile
applications and websites are not operated by us. Please review the privacy policies of
these other mobile applications and websites to learn how they collect, use, store and
share information that you may submit to them, or that they may collect.
11. Children and Young People’s Information
We do not knowingly collect any information from any minors, and we comply with all
applicable privacy laws including the GDPR, CCPA, USA Children's Online Privacy
Protection Act (“COPPA”) and associated Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) rules for
collecting Personal Data from minors. Please see the FTC's website ( for
more information. Our Services will not knowingly accept Personal Data from anyone
under 13 years old in violation of applicable laws, without consent of a parent or
guardian. In the event that we discover that a child under the age of 13 has provided
Personal Data to us without parental consent, we will make efforts to delete the child’s
information in accordance with the COPPA. If you have concerns about our Services,
wish to find out if your child has accessed our Services, or wish to remove your child's
Personal Data from our servers, please contact us at
12. California Privacy Rights

them; 2) know whether their Personal Data are sold or disclosed, and to whom; 3) say
'no' to the sale of their Personal Data; 4) access their Personal Data; and 5) not be

ME1 25729944v.1
respond to requests sent more than once in a calendar year, or requests submitted to
an address other than the one posted in this notice. Please note that this law does not
cover all information sharing. Our disclosure only includes information covered by the
13. Changes to this Policy

Privacy Policy. If at any time in the future we plan to use your Personal Data in a way
