GDPR Compliance Statement And Simplified Policy

1. Collection And Use Of Personal Information

ClydeBank Media LLC (also referred to herein as “ClydeBank Media, or CBM”) may collect personal information from You. Personal information is information relating to an identifiable person who can, by virtue of such information, be directly or indirectly identified. You may be asked to provide Your personal information anytime You are in contact with ClydeBank Media or a CBM affiliated company. ClydeBank Media and its affiliates may share this personal information with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. They may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our products, services, content, and advertising. You are not required to provide the personal information that we have requested, but, if You chose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide You with our products or services or respond to any queries You may have.

2. What Personal Information We Collect

When You create a ClydeBank Media User Account, purchase a product, download a software update, or contact us, we may collect a variety of information, including Your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, and contact preferences. When payment, or payment information, is required, we will direct You to submit credit card information through a third-party such as Stripe.

3. How We Use Your Personal Information

The personal information we collect allows us to keep You posted on ClydeBank Media’ latest product announcements, software updates, and upcoming events. If You don’t want to be on our mailing list, You can opt out anytime by navigating to the unsubscribe link in any email You have received from ClydeBank Media. You may also request directly that we remove your information from our systems by replying to any email you have received from ClydeBank Media or sending your request to [email protected].

4. Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

We also collect data in a form that does not identify any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:

5. Cookies And Other Technologies

ClydeBank Media’ websites, email messages, and advertisements may use “cookies” and other technologies such as tracking, re-marketing tags, and pixels based on context, e.g., a search query, a channel You are reading, or inferred interests. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of our websites people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. We design and target advertising based on how You interact with ClydeBank Media. If You do not wish to receive ads targeted to Your interests from ClydeBank Media, You can choose to limit ad tracking, which will opt Your ClydeBank Media ID out of receiving such ads regardless of what device You are using. You may still see ads based on context like a search query or a channel You are reading.

ClydeBank Media and our partners also use cookies and other technologies to remember how You use our website and software. Our goal in these cases is to make Your experience with ClydeBank Media more convenient and personal, and provide You better customer service. To limit ad tracking, you may opt-out by clicking on this tool for (USA) or this tool for (EU) both of which are not directly ClydeBank Media-affiliated. You may use Your browser’s settings to disable cookies and other tracking tools. Please note that certain features of the ClydeBank Media website may not be available, or may not perform optimally once cookies are disabled.

We gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, to improve our product and services, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. ClydeBank Media may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.

In some cases we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the ClydeBank Media website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our marketing communications. We also use it to account for Affiliate activity and pay Affiliate commissions and bonuses.

6. Disclosure to Third Parties

At times ClydeBank Media may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with ClydeBank Media to provide products and services, or that help ClydeBank Media market to customers. Personal information will only be shared by ClydeBank Media to provide or improve our products, services and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.

ClydeBank Media will provide Your email address to affiliates or users who refer You to us, or through whom You create a ClydeBank Media account.

Service Providers

ClydeBank Media also shares Your information with financial institutions who provide payment (both to and from You) services. These companies are obligated to protect Your information and may be located wherever ClydeBank Media operates.

It may be necessary − by law, litigation, or requests from government authorities within or outside Your country of residence − for ClydeBank Media to disclose Your personal information. We may also disclose information about You if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate. We may also disclose information about You if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users.

Corporate Change
Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale of ClydeBank Media we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.

When Your personal data is stored by ClydeBank Media, we use computer systems with limited access housed in facilities using physical security measures. When You use some ClydeBank Media products and services that by their nature are public facing, such as when You post on a ClydeBank Media forum such as a comment or review, the personal information and content You share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information You choose to share or submit in these instances. For example, if You list Your name and email address in a comment posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.

8. Retention of Personal Information

ClydeBank Media will retain Your personal information for as long as You have a ClydeBank Media account.

VI. Cookies, Web Pixels, And Similar Technologies

This section provides more information about cookies and similar technologies that we may use, and how they work.

ClydeBank Media uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that websites and other online services use to store information about users on users’ own computers.

Cookies can be used to store sign-in credentials so that you don’t have to enter them each time you return to a website, or to store other information to make web viewing more customized or efficient upon future visits. Cookies also may store a unique identifier tied to your computer so that web services and content and advertising networks can recognize you across visits to different websites.

We use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

We use cookies to:

• Understand and save user’s preferences for future visits.

• Keep track of advertisements.

• Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions in order to offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

You can configure your internet browser to warn you each time a cookie is being sent or to refuse all or certain cookies completely. However, this may interfere with the functionality of your web browsing or your ability to fully use many websites.

Pixels or Web Beacons
Pixels or web beacons may also communicate information from your Internet browser to a web server. Pixels can be embedded in web pages, videos, or emails, and can allow a web server to read certain types of information from your browser, check whether you have viewed a particular web page or email message, and determine, among other things, the time and date on which you viewed the Web beacon, the IP address of your computer, and the URL of the web page from which the web beacon was viewed.

We sometimes work with third parties to enhance our services (e.g. for purposes of retargeting and tailoring ads, or placing browser cookies). These partners may set and access their own cookies, pixel tags and similar technologies on your device, which may have cookies with varying expiration period. Those partners may, likewise, collect various types of anonymous or de-identified information about your browser, device, or browsing activities through use of these cookies.

VII. Your Choices And Opt-Out Rights

Opting Out of ClydeBank Media’s Contact Database

There are a few ways that you may opt out of our contact database.

Direct Request
Click here to directly email us with your opt-out request, or use the contact information located at the end of this policy to submit your request.

We will honor all opt-out requests within seven (7) business days from receipt. If you choose to opt-out using this method, please include the name and associated email address and/or phone number you would like removed. This data will be permanently deleted from our contact list and will not be reinstated unless you choose to opt-in to our contact database again.

If, however, you choose to purchase one of our products or services, we may contact your regarding details of your order as necessary and appropriate.

Unsubscribing from Our Emails
When we send an email to you we will provide a way for you to opt out of receiving emails from us in the future. This option will appear as an “unsubscribe” or “opt out” link in the footer of the email. Clicking through this link will remove your name and email address from our contact data base immediately and permanently. This information will not be reinstated unless you choose to opt-in to our contact database again.

Please note that unsubscribing from our emails will not remove your phone number from our contact database. To remove your phone number from our contact database, send us a direct request here, or follow the instructions below.

Unsubscribing from Our SMS Messages
The SMS messaging services we use include unsubscribe controls for our subscribers. If you would like to stop receiving SMS marketing messages from ClydeBank Media, simply reply “STOP” to any message and your phone number will be permanently deleted from our SMS contact database. You may also request that we manually remove your information from our contact database by using this form.

Please note that unsubscribing from our SMS messages will not remove your email address from our contact database. To remove your email address from our contact database, send us a direct request here, or follow the instructions above.

Opting Out of Online Targeting
If you wish to opt out of other third party ad platforms and ad networks (including ones we work with and may have transferred data to in the past), we recommend visiting the opt-out pages offered by the Network Advertising Initiative and the DAA’s AboutAds program.

Access the opt-out page here.

Opting out through the above methods will cause one or more opt-out cookies to be set on your browser or device, to indicate that you have opted out. Opting out in this way won’t prevent you from seeing ads; but it will in many cases lead the companies listed to stop customizing ads based on inferences they have made about you or your interests.

Please note that opt-outs made in this way are browser-specific, so opting out on one browser will not affect a second browser or device that you use. For the same reason, if you buy a new device, change browsers or clear all cookies, you’ll need to perform this opt-out task again.

VIII. Security And Data Integrity

ClydeBank Media takes steps to ensure that the data we possess is housed and transmitted securely. These steps may include various methods of physical and electronic security, firewall protections, encryption and hashing of data, and access controls to PI. However, neither we nor any platform can guarantee 100 percent safety from hacks or illegal intrusion, so this Privacy Policy does not guarantee against that possibility.

XI. Other Compliance Statements

California Online Privacy Protection Act
CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared.

See more here.

According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

• Users can visit our site anonymously

• Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page or as a minimum, on the first significant page after entering our website

• Our Privacy Policy link includes the word “Privacy” and can easily be found on the page specified above

• You will be notified of any Privacy Policy changes on our Privacy Policy page

You can change your personal information:

• By emailing us

• By logging in to your account

How does our site handle Do Not Track signals?
We honor Do Not Track signals and Do Not Track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe.

Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

• We will notify you via email within 7 business days

• We will notify the users via in-site notification within 7 business days

We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law.

This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:

• Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions

• Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred.

To be in accordance with CAN SPAM, we agree to the following:

• Not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses.

• Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.

• Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters.

• Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.

• Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly.

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, follow these steps.
