Summary

We collect your data only to provide you with access to our content, events, and other programs. We do not share your data with anyone else without your explicit consent to do so. We respect your right to privacy. If you wish to unsubscribe from the Services and/or to have us remove your data from our systems, we will do so.

Consenting to our collection and use of your data is optional, but if you do not provide consent, we cannot provide you with the Services.

What information do we collect?

When you do that, we may collect the following information from you:

Full name

Email address

Title

Location

Company name

Mailing address

Billing address

Payment information such as credit/debit card info

We do not store credit/debit card information. This information is shared with our payment processing services to complete a transaction you requested.

We may also collect information about you from publicly and commercially available sources, as permitted by law, which we may combine with other information we receive from or about you. This is intended to better provide to you our Services. As with all information that we collect from you, we will keep it private and for our own internal purposes only.

 

How do we use information we collect?

 To Provide and Manage the Services You Request.  This includes, for example, sending you electronic newsletters and enabling you to participate in the features provided by the Services. It also may include providing personalized content and recommendations to you. Through such features, we are able to bring you information and content tailored to your individual interests and needs.

To Contact You.  We may periodically contact you with information about the Services and our affiliates and partners.

To Better Understand Our Readers and Users.  The Services conduct research on our users’ demographics, interests and behavior based on the information we collect. We do this to better understand and serve our users, and to improve our products and services.

Consent.  We may otherwise use your information with your consent or at your direction.

How do we share information?

The following provides information about entities with which we may share information. Our practices vary depending on the type of information.

Business Partners. We may share your information with business partners to provide you with services that you request. For example, if you sign up for a promotion that runs on our Services but that is sponsored or co-sponsored by another company, your information may be shared with that sponsor. You will always be notified that we intend to share your information with a business partner before you elect to sign up for a promotion that so requires. OUTIVATE USA LLC. is not responsible for the privacy practices of these entities.

Service Providers. We may share information with vendors providing contractual services to us, such as hosting vendors.

Other Parties When Required by Law or As Necessary to Protect Our Users and Services.  We may share your personal information as we believe is necessary or appropriate to protect, enforce, or defend the legal rights, privacy, safety, or property of the Services, our employees or agents or users or to comply with applicable law or legal process, including responding to requests from public and government authorities.

Other Parties in Connection With a Corporate Transaction. We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event that we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets to a third party, such as in the event of a merger, acquisition, or in connection with a bankruptcy reorganization.

Otherwise With Your Consent or At Your Direction In addition to the sharing described in this Privacy Policy, we may share information about you with third parties whenever you consent to or direct such sharing.

Aggregated Data.  We also may provide aggregated data about how users are using our Services to third parties.

 

Do we provide links to third-party sites?

Our Services may link to third-party websites and services that are outside our control. We are not responsible for the security or privacy of any information collected by other websites or other services.
