What information do we collect and how do we use it?
We collect and store information, including personally-identifiable information (‘Personal Information’), that is voluntarily supplied to us by you when registering or when using the Services. Some such information, such as your e-mail address and credentials is required in order for you to register as a user of the Services. You can choose not to provide Embark with certain information, but by doing so, you may not be able to take advantage of many of our Services. We use Personal Information to deliver the Services and relevant information to you, to improve our Services, and to develop analytics and aggregated data that allow us to utilize and enhance our Services.
We may also collect and store non-personally identifiable information that is automatically generated when you use the Services. We may use ‘cookies’ on the Site and any Apps. A cookie is a piece of alphanumeric data stored on a visitor’s hard drive or device to help us improve your access to our Services and identify repeat visitors to our Site or Embark Applications. Cookies enable us to customize and enhance the user experience on our Site or Apps. We may use the resulting non-personally identifiable information, such as your browser version, IP address, referring domains, pages visited, your mobile carrier, device and application IDs, the nature of your use of the Services and cookie information, to improve our Service delivery, including advertising, and to develop analytics and aggregated data that allow us to utilize our Site and any Apps and reach out to you via our Services.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We may share your Personal Information in situations described below:
- We may release your Personal Information to authorized agents who are employed by us to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share information with them to provide products and services to you. Unless we communicate with you differently, our authorized agents do not have the right to use any Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to work with us. You hereby consent to our sharing your Personal Information for the above purposes.
- We believe it is necessary to investigate potential violations of our terms and conditions applicable to the Services, to enforce those terms and conditions, to comply with law or to protect ours or others rights, property, or safety.
* We may release your e-mail address or other Personal Information to third-parties to verify that you are a customer of both Embark and the third-party so that tailored communications can be sent to or otherwise made available to you regarding opportunities you may have as a customer of both Embark and the third-party, or as part of research projects. We will only do so with agreements in place that limit the parties’ use of your data and prevent further data sharing and unsolicited advertising from them to you for commercial purposes if you are not already a customer of theirs.
Except as described above, we may release your Personal Information to third parties with your consent. You will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with consent, and you will have the ability to prevent us from sharing this information in this manner.
We may also provide non-personally identifiable information, or aggregated information that does not identify you, to other parties, such as Google Analytics, for analytics, marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Deleting Your Data.
You can provide us with a written request that we delete your Personal Information, in which case we will delete your Personal Information promptly, and will only retain Personal Information as required by law or as may be retained in backup tapes until those tapes are destroyed.
You may have additional rights under applicable law to access, amend, and/or request deletion of certain information. To inquire about such rights, please send us an email at email@example.com. For your protection, we may only implement requests with respect to the information associated with the particular email address you use to send us your request, and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. We will attempt to comply with any reasonable requests for accessing, amending, or deleting your information.
Embark is committed to protecting the security and privacy of your Personal Information. Embark uses commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your Personal Information against loss or unauthorized access, use, modification, or deletion. However, no security program is foolproof, and thus we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your Personal Information or any other information you provide to us.
Our Services are not directed to people under 18 years of age. If you become aware that your child has provided us with Personal Information without your consent, please Contact Us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we take steps to remove that information and terminate the applicable account.
Third-Party Links, Websites, and Apps
We ask that you not send us, and you not disclose, any sensitive Personal Information (e.g., social security numbers, financial account information, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, criminal background, or trade union membership) on or through the Site or Apps or otherwise to us. You should provide financial information only to the third party payment processor that we utilize on our Site.
