Third Party Analytics and Advertising Services
We have identified the provider names of some of the third-party analytics and advertising services we use. Please see the links on this page to learn more about the data practices of our third-party service providers (including opt-out mechanisms they may offer). You can also use your device settings to manage interest-based advertising that appears on mobile applications; to do so, select “limit ad tracking” on Apple iOS operating systems and “opt-out of interest-based ads” on Android operating systems.
We store and process your information in the United States and other countries where we operate. When we do this, we utilize technical, physical, and administrative safeguards to meet data transfer requirements set forth in the Privacy Shield Framework Principles.
We adhere to the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework Principles issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce (the “Principles”) in connection with personal data received from the EEA and Switzerland in reliance on the Principles. We also receive some data in reliance on other compliance mechanisms, including agreements based on the EU standard contractual clauses. For more information about the Principles and to view our certifications, please visit the Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield website at https://www.privacyshield.gov/welcome
Our accountability for personal data that we receive under the Principles and subsequently transfer to a third party is described in the Principles. In particular, if a third party service provider providing services on our behalf processes personal data from the
EEA or Switzerland in a manner inconsistent with the applicable Principles, we will be
liable unless we can prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damages. In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to the Principles, we are subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
You may contact us about any question or complaint regarding adherence to the Principles as indicated in the “Contact Us” section below. If we do not resolve your complaint, you may submit your complaint free of charge to our U.S.-based third party dispute resolution provider at https://feedback-form.truste.com/watchdog/request. Under certain conditions specified by the Principles, you may also be able to invoke binding arbitration to resolve your complaint. You also have the right to access the personal data we have about you on file where such data is subject to the Principles or where applicable laws provide you with this right. To access your personal data, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
