9. How Do We Store and Protect Your Information?
9.1. After receiving your PII, we will store it on our Service systems for future use. We have 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 over the internet 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.
9.2. If you are accessing the Service from outside of the United States of America (“USA”), you understand that your connection will be through and to servers located in the USA, and the information you provide will be securely stored in our web servers and internal systems located within the USA.
9.3. We store your PII until we are required to remove it. We store our logs and other technical records in accordance with internal practices and policies, and potentially indefinitely.
10.1. To enhance your online experience with us, our web pages may presently or in the future use “cookies.” Cookies are text files that our web server may place on your hard disk to store your preferences. We may use session, persistent, first-party and third-party cookies. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your email address or other PII unless you choose to provide this information to us. Once you choose to provide PII, however, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.
10.2. 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 Service pages and HTML-formatted email messages for such purposes as compiling aggregate statistics about Service usage and response rates. A pixel tag is an electronic image (often a single pixel), that is ordinarily not visible to website visitors, and may be associated with cookies on visitors' hard drives. Pixel tags allow us and our service providers to count users who have visited certain pages of the Service, to deliver customized services, and to help determine the effectiveness of our Service and Service. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, pixel tags can inform the sender of the email whether and when the email has been opened.
10.3. As you use the internet, you leave a trail of electronic information at each website you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as “clickstream data”, can be collected and stored by a website's server. 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 Service. We may use clickstream data as a form of non-personally identifiable information to determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our Service, how visitors navigate through the Service, and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of visitors. We will only use this information to improve our Service.
10.4. Do Not Track. At present, the Site does not specifically respond to browser do-not-track signals.

13. California Privacy Rights
13.1. If you are a resident of California, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended (“CCPA”), provides you with certain rights regarding your personal information. For purposes of the CCPA, we are a “Business,” you, if you are an individual residing in California, are a “Consumer,” and PII includes “Personal Information” as defined under the CCPA.
13.2. Consumers have the right to request that we disclose Personal Information we have collected about them in the previous 12 months including, but not limited to, the categories of information collected by us, the source(s) of such information by category, and the purpose for collecting such information. This right may not be exercised more than twice in a 12-month period.
In the previous 12 months, we have collected the following categories of Personal Information about Consumers:
· Identifiers, examples of which include a Consumer's name, mailing address, social security number, unique personal identifiers (device identifier, IP Address, cookies, beacons, pixel tags, mobile ad identifiers), account names, and similar information;
· Commercial information, examples of which include records of personal property, products or services purchased, obtained, or considered, or other purchasing or consuming histories or tendencies;
· Personal Records Under the California Consumer Records Law (Cal. Civ. Code §1798.80) (“CCRLPI”);
· Internet/Network Activity, examples of which include browsing history, cookies, search history and a Consumer's interaction with a website;
· Geolocation data; and
· Inferences drawn from any other category of personal information.
13.3. As a Consumer, you also have the right to request that we tell you which of your Personal Information we have disclosed for a business purpose, or sold, in the previous 12 months, if any. In the past 12 months, we have disclosed Personal Information falling under the following categories of personal information:
· Commercial information;
· Internet/Network Activity;
· Geolocation data; and
13.4. You also have the right to request the deletion of Personal Information that we have collected from you at any time. However, we may not be required to comply with such request under several circumstances including, but not limited to, when the data is necessary for the underlying transaction, to comply with applicable law, to detect security incidents, to debug glitches, and for our internal purposes.
13.5. In the event that you exercise one of your rights under the CCPA, you will not be discriminated against by us in any way, whether it is through the denial of goods/services, providing you a different level of goods/services, or charging (or suggesting that we will charge) you different prices for the goods/services unless such change in price is reasonably related to the value you receive from your Personal Information.
13.6. How do you exercise your rights under the CCPA? Because we offer the Service exclusively online, you may submit requests to exercise your rights under the CCPA by contacting us at email@example.com, please include “Request for Privacy Information” in the subject line.
We will acknowledge receipt of your request within 10 days of receiving it, and use best efforts to respond within 45 days of receipt of your request, but in no event will our response come more than 90 days after your request. If we are unable to provide our response within the first 45 days following your request, we shall notify you as soon as we become aware of the possible delay and provide an explanation of why additional time is needed to respond.
Before we respond to any CCPA based requests relating to your personal information, we may take steps to reasonably verify the identity of the person making the request to make sure it's you, or your authorized agent (in either case, the “Requestor”). We do this to this avoid disclosing your information to third parties and bad actors, not to inconvenience you in any way. For purposes of verifying identity, we will ask the Requestor to confirm at least two pieces of information that we have in our files. If an agent is acting on behalf of the Consumer, we will also need to verify the agent's identity and their authority to act on the Consumer's behalf. As the sensitivity of the information being requested increases, we will ask the Requestor to provide more information to verify their identity and/or authority to make the request. If the identity of the Requestor cannot be reasonably verified, either as the Consumer or their agent, then in order to protect that Consumer, we may not disclose or delete the personal information that is the subject of the request.
14. Children and Privacy
We do not knowingly permit users to register for our Service if they are under 18 years old, and therefore do not request PII from anyone under the age of 13. If we become aware that a customer is under the age of 13 and has registered without prior verifiable parental consent, we will remove his or her PII from our files. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of 13 who has provided PII to us without your approval, please inform us by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will remove such information from our database.
