4. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
How and what personal information we collect in connection with the use of the Services depends on how and why you use the Services. For instance, the information that you provide when you visit and/or browse the Site or sign up for our marketing communications is more limited than the information you provide when you register an Account and use the Clarra Platform.
The term “personal information” or “personal data” means any information about an individual from which that person may be identified. For example, it may include a person’s name, telephone number, email address, or payment information, and in some jurisdictions, IP address. It does not include data from which the identity of an individual has been definitively removed along with any identifiers connected to such individual (also known as anonymous or anonymized data).
When you access and use our Services, we collect information directly from you as explained in the Section Information Provided Directly by Users of the Services, and in certain circumstances we may receive information from third parties as described here. In addition, we may automatically collect certain information when you access and/or use the Services as explained in the Section Information Collected Indirectly.
Please be advised that we may ask you to update your information from time to time in order to keep it accurate. Additionally, if you provide personal information to us about someone else, you must ensure (1) that you are entitled to disclose that information to us, and (2) that, without us having to take any further steps required by data protection laws, we may collect, use and disclose such information for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice. For example, you should ensure the individual concerned is aware of the terms detailed in this Privacy Notice and that they have not objected or do not object to you sharing their information with us.

Please review the following Privacy Policies of our current payment providers to learn more about how they collect, process and protect your personal information:
b. Information Collected from Third Parties
In some instances, we process personal information from third parties, which consists of:
Data from our analytics, advertising, and/or marketing providers.
Data from Third Party Integrations that you connect to and/or use in connection with the use of the Services, including, but not limited to, when you sign-in to the Services using your account with a third party, such as, Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365, Outlook, and/or CalendarRules.
Data from our Customers, for example, we may receive your contact information to invite you to set-up an Account and/or access the Services as an Authorized User of a Customer.
c. Information Collected Indirectly
i. Usage Information
We, or our authorized third-party service providers, automatically collect technical and/or analytics information about how you use and/or interact with our Services (collectively, “Usage Information”), which may include (but is not necessarily limited to) identifiers, commercial information, and internet activity information such as IP address (or proxy server), mobile device number, device and application information, device event information, crash data, and log files and data, identification numbers and features, your approximate location (as determined through your IP address), browser type, plug-ins, integrations, Internet service provider or mobile carrier, the pages and files viewed, website and webpage interactions including searches and other actions you take, websites, apps and/or ads that referred you to the website, advertising and language preferences, operating system type and version, system configuration information, date and time stamps associated with your usage, and frequency of visits to the websites, and details of which of our products and product versions you are using.
We use this information for our internal purposes, specifically to operate, maintain, secure and improve the Services. We may also use this information to provide you with notifications, recommendations, and information about specific features of the Services and/or additional products, services, or features we believe may be of interest to you.
Typically, all Usage Information is collected in anonymous form and does not identify you personally; however, some of the device and usage information collected, whether alone or in conjunction with other data, could identify you. Except where strictly required to identify an individual for security purposes, such data and information is primarily used to identify the uniqueness of each user logging on (as opposed to specific individuals). To the extent any Usage Information is linked or tied to personally identifiable information, such information is deemed “personal data” and we will use it and protect it in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
ii. Cookies and Similar Technologies
We or authorized third parties may collect certain information (including, without limitation, Usage Information) by automated means using technologies such as cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, pixels, browser analysis tools, server logs, and mobile identifiers, and similar technologies that are deployed, and typically stored on your device and have a unique identifier, when you visit a website, when you open an email or click on links or images within an email, and/or when you interact with online advertisements. While Clarra employs these technologies throughout its Services, Clarra does not track users across third party websites.
These technologies may be used for many different purposes. For example, they can be used to show that you have previously visited and/or used a feature of the Services and to identify which parts of the Services you might be most interested in, or used to improve your online experience by storing your preferences during your visit and/or use of the Services. These technologies can also be used for security, fraud detection and authentication purposes.
In many cases, the information we collect using these technologies is only used in a non-identifiable manner without reference to personal information. For example, we may use information we collect to better understand website traffic patterns and to optimize user experience. In other cases, we associate the information we collect using cookies and other technology with your personal information.
We may use certain third party analytics tools to help us gather certain information when you visit and/or access the Services (including Usage Information). For example, we use Google Analytics on the Site. For more information on how these technologies are used by Google, please refer to: http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.
iii. How to Manage Cookie Preferences
Most web and mobile device browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can change your browser to prevent that or to notify you each time a cookie is set. In order to manage your cookie preferences, you may alter the cookie settings in your browser settings at any time. You may accept all, or certain, cookies. If you do disable our cookies in your browser settings, you may find that certain features and/or functionality of the Services will not work.
To learn more about cookies, including how to manage cookies and opt-out of cookies being placed on your device, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html.
While tracking is widespread over the internet, there are things you can do to minimize these activities with respect to browser cookies.
Do Not Track Settings
You may turn on the Do Not Track (“DNT”) setting in your browser, which will enable your browser to send a special signal to websites, analytics companies, plug in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity. To turn on your DNT signal, please visit https://allaboutdnt.com/#adjust-settings.
Please note that not all companies will respond to or honor DNT signals, and Clarra does not process or respond to web browsers’ “do not track” signals.

a. Aggregated Data
With the personal information and other data (including, Usage Information) collected by us, we process “Aggregated Data”, such as statistical or demographic data. Aggregated Data may be derived from personal information, but is not considered personal information under the law if it does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. If we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal information so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal information, which will be processed in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
5. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

If we are required to disclose personal information by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena, warrant or other judicial or administrative order, our policy is to respond to requests that are properly issued by law enforcement within the United States. Under such circumstances, unless prohibited by applicable law, we will attempt to provide you with prior notice that a request for your personal information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. We will attempt to provide this notice by email, if you have given us an email address. However, government requests may include a court-granted non-disclosure order, which prohibits us from giving notice to the affected individual.

13. DATA RETENTION
Personal information is processed for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is collected, to comply with legal and regulatory obligations and for the duration of any period necessary to establish, exercise or defend any legal rights.
In order to determine the most appropriate retention periods for your personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of your information, the reasons for which we collect and process your personal information, and applicable legal requirements.
In some instances, we may choose to anonymize personal information instead of deleting it. When we choose to anonymize, we make sure that there is no way that the personal information can be linked back to any specific individual.
14. DATA SECURITY AND PROTECTION
We have put in place reasonable and appropriate security measures designed to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. For example, we use encryption, secure socket layer (SSL), firewalls, and password protection. In addition, we limit access to personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and the third parties who have a business need-to-know.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, and while we take reasonable steps to provide secure services, by using the Services, you understand and assume the risks associated with your activities on the internet.
Additionally, we cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your information. Further, even after information posted on the Services is removed, caching and archiving services may have saved that information, and other users or third parties may have copied or stored the information available on the Services. To the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, we cannot and do not guarantee that information you post on or transmit to the Services will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.
15. CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS – SHINE THE LIGHT

The details would include the categories of personal information and the names and addresses of the third party with which it was shared.
To request information about this sharing, you may submit a request with “Your California Privacy Rights” in the subject line, along with your first and last name, and complete mailing address (including street address, city, state, and zip code) by either: sending an email message or writing to us at the email and/or mailing address specified in the How to Contact Us Section.

Clarra does not currently sell covered information of Nevada consumers as defined under applicable Nevada law; however, you may submit an opt-out request, which we will honor as required by Nevada law should we engage in such a sale in the future.
