Effective Date: January 1, 2018
What information do we collect, and how do we collect it?
Information you provide to us.
We and our third party service providers (“Contractors”) may collect certain information from or about you in connection with your use of the Site and/or the App (together, “Collected Information”), including, but not limited to, your name and telephone number. In addition, we and our Contractors may retain the content of, and metadata regarding, any correspondence you may have with us or our representatives, regardless of the mode of communication by which such correspondence was made.
Information collected via technology.
Automatically Collected Information includes device and browsing information, including information about your phone, tablet, computer, or other device, and online browsing activity such as IP addresses, unique device identifiers, cookie identifiers, device and browser settings and information, and Internet service provider information. Automatically Collected Information also may include information about when and how you access and use our website, such as the date and time of your visit or use, the websites you visit before coming and after leaving our website, how you navigate, and what you search for using our website.
Our Site may send one or more “cookies” to your computer to improve the utility of the Site by tracking user trends. These cookies are placed on your computer when your web browser accesses the Site. The cookies provide us with information that helps us understand things such as how you navigate to and around websites, Site browsing and content accessing. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.
How will we use the information you provide to us?
We use your name and phone number to facilitate informing you and third parties who are using the App. Additionally, we and our Contractors may use Collected Information to notify you of changes made to the Site or App, to evaluate user needs, and improve the Site or App. If you contact us for support or assistance, we may use Collected Information to provide service and support to you.
With whom do we share the information we collect?
We may share Collected Information with certain of our Contractors (e.g., our web hosting provider) in order to provide the Site and/or App to you. We and our Contractors may store Collected Information in the United States, or we may transfer it to, and store it within, other countries. We may also share Collected Information with our subsidiaries. We and our Contractors may also produce reports on Site or App traffic, usage patterns, and similar data generated from Collected Information, and we may share these reports with our subsidiaries.
We may disclose Collected Information to the proper authorities if we become subject to a subpoena or court order or if we believe that we are otherwise legally required to disclose such information. We may also use and disclose information about you to establish or exercise our legal rights, to assert and defend against legal claims, or if we believe such disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding actual or suspected illegal or fraudulent activities or potential threats to the physical safety or well-being of any person.
If all or part of Clutch3 is sold, merged, or otherwise transferred to another entity, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, we may transfer Collected Information to such entity as part of that transaction.
Finally, we may disclose Collected Information to other third parties with your consent.
What choices do you have?
When corresponding with Clutch3 or our representatives, or when making a request for information or otherwise interacting with us or others through the Site and/or the App, you choose what information to supply, what questions or comments to submit, whether you wish to receive further information, and by what method of communication such information should be delivered. Please take care to share only such information as is needed or that you believe is appropriate. You are under no obligation to provide us with personally identifiable information, but without it we may not be able to provide you the products or services you request. You may contact us as indicated below if at any time you would like to ask us about our data collection and information security practices. In addition, your mobile device may offer settings relating to cookies, pixel tags, Flash cookies, and other similar technologies. We encourage to you to visit your device’s help menu to learn about your options to limit tracking when using your device.
Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” (DNT) features that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. There is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal. We currently do not respond to web browser DNT signals.
How do we protect information collected about you?
We may make changes to this Policy, and may apply any changes to information previously collected, as permitted by law. When we make material changes to this Policy, we will notify you by posting the updated Policy on our website, and we will update the effective date at the top of this Policy. By continuing to use our website after being notified of material changes to this Policy, you agree that the terms of this Policy as of the effective date will apply to information previously collected or collected in the future.
Location of this Site and the App.
This Site and the App are hosted and operated in the United States. However, we and our Contractors may, in our effort to provide the Site and/or the App, store Collected Information in the United States, or we may transfer it to, and store it within, other countries.
Those who access or use the Site and/or the App from jurisdictions outside the United States do so at their own choice and risk and are solely responsible for compliance with local law. If you are not a resident of the United States, you acknowledge and agree that we may collect and use your personal information outside your home jurisdiction, and that we may store your personal information in the United States or elsewhere. Please note that the level of legal protection provided in the United States or other non-European countries from which you may access our Site may not be as stringent as that under European Union privacy standards or the privacy laws of some other countries, possibly including your home jurisdiction.
Communication with children.
Our website is not directed to or intended to be used by individuals under the age of 13. We do not knowingly request or collect personal information from any person under 13 years of age without prior verifiable parental consent. If you believe that your child under the age of 13 has submitted personal information to us in connection with our website, and without prior verifiable parental consent, please contact us at admin@Clutch3.org so that we can take steps to delete the personal information that she or he provided as required in accordance with applicable law.
Your California privacy rights.
Once per calendar year, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 provides California residents with the right to receive: information identifying (names and addresses) any third party(ies) to whom we may have disclosed, within the preceding calendar year, your personal information for that third party’s direct marketing purposes; and (b) a description of the categories of personal information disclosed, where and as required under this law.
