2. HOW WE COLLECT AND USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Personal information refers to any information that identifies or can be used to identify a particular person. Different states (and countries) define personal information (and similar terms, such as personal data, personally identifiable information, and PII) to include different things, but it generally includes information such as your name, address, email address, and phone number. It may also include your computer or mobile device IP address, if that IP address can be linked to a specific person.
You are in control of whether you provide us with any personal information. If you do not wish to provide particular information, you should not use the Site or provide your information. That will affect our ability to do business with you; however, that is your choice.
If you choose to provide it, we may obtain personal information from you in the following ways:
Inquiry Features: If you use the Site to inquire about joining our community, using the “Get Started” (or any similar Site feature we may implement from time to time), we will be provided with your contact information and other information that you submit about you and your company. We will use this information to evaluate the potential business opportunity and to respond to your inquiry.
Newsletter Sign-Up: If you sign up to receive our newsletter, we will use the contact information you provide to send you our newsletters and other promotional materials. You will always have the option of opting out of receiving these types of marketing materials in the future.
Other Information: If you participate in any other interactive area of our Site that we may offer from time to time, we will collect any personal information that you include as a part of your participation.
We may also use the personal information we collect through the Site to help us customize your user experience, to increase the convenience of accessing tools and features of the Site, and to provide you with information regarding our services, and other related products and services, including those we may offer in the future.
We keep the personal information we collect for as long as we continue to have a business need to do so (which will be at least as long as you continue to have a prospective or ongoing client relationship with us), unless a longer period is required by law. Business needs include legal, tax, accounting, risk management, and other business purposes.
3. HOW AND WHY WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION
We share personal information with third parties in the following circumstances:
We will provide personal information to our service providers who need to use that information to conduct business on our behalf. For example, our service providers may assist us with operation of the Site, may store our documentation, or may handle data management. We provide these service providers only with the information they need to perform their services, and work with them to respect and protect your privacy.
We may share your personal information with our company affiliates and business partners for our and their legitimate business purposes, including so that we or they may provide you with periodic mailings regarding products and services. If you do not wish for us to share your information in this manner, please let us know by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may share personal information with data analytics platforms, such as Google Analytics, to compile statistics and perform analyses intended to understand our client base and to improve our Site performance.
We will release information, including personal information, if we believe that doing so is appropriate to (a) comply with law, regulations, legal process or governmental request, (b) enforce any policies applicable to the Site, including potential violations, (c) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) otherwise protect the rights, property or personal safety of us, our employees, Site users, or others.
We may share information, including personal information, in connection with, during negotiations of, or as a part of the closing of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company in which personal information about the users of the Site is among the assets transferred.
We may also share personal information that has been de-identified or anonymized, such as demographic information or aggregate information, with our advertisers and marketing partners for business purposes, such as the development of marketing campaigns. And, we may share personal information that has been encrypted with our third party media partners, to track performance of our marketing efforts and to provide you with relevant content across the web, such as banner ads including products or services you may have shown an interest in.
We do not sell, rent, or lease any personal information that we collect about you through the Site to anyone for any purpose, other than as disclosed, unless you have given us your separate express permission to do so.
4. HOW WE COLLECT AND USE NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
Non-personally identifiable information, also called NPII, refers to information that is not and cannot be used, by itself, to identify a specific individual. When you use the Site, we may automatically collect standard internet and website log information, and details of patterns about how our Site users behave. This information may include your internet service provider name, your operating system, your browser type and browser language, and your access times. More information about the technology we use to automatically collect information is provided below under the heading “Cookies and Other Tracking Technology.”
All of the NPII we collect may be used to understand our prospective and ongoing client base, to gather broad demographic data for aggregate use, to conduct market research, to analyze trends, to develop products and services, and to provide those products and services to others.
If we associate any NPII with the personal information you provide us, we will treat the associated information as personal information, in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
5. COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGY
Cookies are small amounts of data that are stored on your browser, device, or the page you are viewing when you visit a website. Some cookies are deleted once you close your browser or application (session cookies), while other cookies are retained even after you exit so that you can be recognized when you return (persistent cookies). Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies and other tracking technologies, but you can usually change your settings to prevent that, such as by having your device warn you each time a cookie is being sent or choosing to turn off all cookies. This can be done through your web browser settings, and because each browser is different, you should look at your browser’s “Help” menu to learn how to modify your cookie settings. If you do disable cookies from your browser you may not be able to access certain features of the Site, and this may make your use of the Site less efficient.
Currently, certain browsers, including Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer, offer a “do not track” (DNT) option. This option, using a technology known as a DNT header, sends a signal to websites visited by the user about the user’s DNT preference, if any, set on the browser. While we do try to honor DNT requests, we do not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals. We cannot make this commitment because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies, or regulators.
6. OUR SECURITY MEASURES
We use a variety of industry-standard security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information, including measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. Unfortunately, no electronic data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we believe that we use reasonable measures to protect personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted or otherwise provided to us or received from us.
7. YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING YOUR INFORMATION
Opting Out of Certain Communications. You can always opt out of receiving promotional communications from us by contacting us at us at email@example.com. Please note that notwithstanding your email preferences, we may need to contact you regarding our potential or ongoing business relationship, as required by law, or regarding legal matters. However, we will not send you marketing communications after you have opted out of receiving them.
Correcting and Updating Information. If you believe that any of the personal information we have about you is incorrect, you can contact us at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we make the appropriate corrections.
Removal of Information. As noted above, we have standard retention practices with respect to the personal data we collect. If you would like to request any earlier removal of your personal information, please contact us at email@example.com. Please note that we may not be able to completely remove personal information from the Site or our systems in certain circumstances. This will be true if the data is not in a searchable format, if it is retained in backup systems, if we need it in order to prevent fraud or future abuse, or if we are required by law to keep it.
California Residents. California law permits individuals to request certain details about our disclosure of their personal information to third parties for direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and you would like to make such a request, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
8. A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT CHILDREN
Our Site is not directed to use by persons under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you believe your minor child has improperly accessed the site and provided any personal information, please contact us at email@example.com.

Our Site is generally intended for a United States audience. If you are visiting our Site from outside the United States, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States, where our servers are located and our site is operated. We make no representation that the practices we describe are compliant with the laws of other jurisdictions, including laws that apply to the collection, use, disclosure, and security of personal information.
