When you use the Services, we may collect limited information from you. The type of information we collect will depend on how you use the Services. We may collect the following information from you, regardless of how you use the Services: your IP address, the types of hardware and software you use, limited to your operating system and browser type, your approximate geographic location, and your activity on the Site. We will only collect the following information if you choose to complete forms on our Site where such information may be requested: your name, email address, any other information that you may voluntarily choose to submit to us. In all other cases we do not collect information about you as an individual.
We may collect information as you navigate through the Site, or if you choose to submit content on the Site, or complete forms on the Site where information is requested.

If you want to stop receiving email newsletters, email us at email@example.com or follow the "unsubscribe" instructions located near the bottom of each newsletter. As another example, you may submit comments on the Site. If you choose to do so, any personal information that you submit

We automatically collect data using technologies such as cookies. A cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device to allow the Site to recognize you or your device, to help provide functionality, and allow us to analyze Site usage. You may choose to decline or disable cookies or similar tracking technologies through your browser or other tools but doing so may affect your ability to access or use certain features of the Site or certain Services.

You may be able to decline or disable cookies and similar tracking technologies we use by using an unaffiliated third-party service.
Certain web browsers and other programs may be used to signal your preferences to us about how or whether we or third-parties may collect information about your online activities. Currently, we do not respond to such signals.
We use your information to deliver and improve our Services, process your requests, deliver electronic newsletters to you, post content you submit, deliver advertisements to you, and to respond to your submissions and inquiries to us. We may also use your information to measure and report on the delivery of advertisements.
To the extent required to do so, we may preserve and disclose your personal data to comply with any court order, applicable law or other legal process. We retain personal data for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose for which it was obtained and consistent with applicable law.
We are located in the United States. Any information you provide to us will be transferred to and stored in the United States. Please be aware that United States laws governing the privacy and security of your information may be different from the laws where you reside or from which you are accessing the Services. By submitting your information to us, you are agreeing to the processing and storage of your information in the United States.
If you are located in the European Union, you may have certain additional legal protections under the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). You may be entitled to request access to the limited information we may have about you and how we process it. You may also have a right to have such information corrected or deleted, to restrict our processing of that information, to have personal data relating to you transferred to another organization and, in some cases, to file a complaint regarding our processing of your personal data with a local data protection authority.
If you do not want us to have any of your personal data, please do not use the Services. Or, if you use the Services and you object to the processing of your personal data, or if you have provided your consent to processing and you now wish to withdraw that consent, please let us know by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you object or withdraw consent, know that your objection or withdrawal could mean that you are unable to use the Services, and that we may be unable to perform other actions you request.
Our Site uses SSL encryption to attempt to ensure that any information transmitted by you to us through the Site is secure, although we cannot guarantee such transmissions, and when you submit information to us through the Site, you do so at your own risk. In the event of a data breach, it is possible that your information could be disclosed to unauthorized persons. If you use the Site, you acknowledge that we are not responsible for any breaches of privacy concerning your personal data. If we determine that your personal data has been compromised in any way, we may notify you as soon as possible by email, if we have your email address, or any other method in which you wish to be contacted.
We are the data controller of any personal data collected through the Site, and we are responsible for the processing of your personal data.
We take reasonable steps to protect the personal data provided through the Services from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. These steps include internal reviews of our data collection, storage, and processing practices and security measures, and employing physical, technical, and administrative security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data. We also restrict access to personal data to our employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, or improve our Services. However, no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free, and you therefore assume all related risks by disclosing personal data to us via the Internet.
We do not disclose your personal information to third-parties for the third-parties’ direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosures.
