3. SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES.

 

Service Providers. Like most companies, we use tools from third-party service providers to help us with various parts of our business (“Service Providers”), and depending on the service we need, these Service Providers may have access to your Personal Information. For example, we use a Service Provider’s email software to manage our Newsletter subscriptions, and if you have given us your email address to subscribe to the Newsletter, then your email address will be shared with that Service Provider. We also use Service Providers for the following purposes:

  • To host the Services. 

  • To process your orders and payment information.

  • To deliver emails and the Newsletter. 

  • To help us conduct web analytics on the Services.

 

We require all Service Providers to treat your Personal Information as confidential information and to only use it for the particular purpose for which it is shared with them.

 

Business Transfers. As we continue to develop our business, we may reorganize as a business entity, acquire entities, subsidiaries, or business units, or enter into joint ventures with third parties. In any of these types of transactions, any information you provide may be one of the transferred business assets (subject to any pre-existing privacy notice unless you consent otherwise). In the event that all or substantially all of our assets are acquired or we merge with a third-party, your Personal Information will likely be one of the transferred assets. You understand and agree that we reserve the right to transfer any information collected from you in the case of any such transfer. In such event, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

 

Legal. We may disclose information you provide to respond to subpoenas, court orders, requests from authorities, and other legal process, and to establish/exercise our legal rights. We may also disclose your information to defend against legal claims when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. We may share your information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, and situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our terms and contracts, or as otherwise required by law.

 

4. COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES.

Commonly, companies use cookies on their websites to identify visitors, to remember visitors’ preferences, to better understand how visitors use and interact with the website, and to keep visitors logged in into their accounts while they navigate the website. Cookies are either first-party cookies, which belong to the domain you are visiting, or third-party cookies, which are set by and belong to a different domain than the one that you’re currently visiting.

8. SECURITY.

 

We store and process your Personal Information using third-party servers located in data centers in the United States. We employ administrative, physical, and technical safeguards, including data encryption, which are designed to protect your information from unauthorized access and to comply with applicable privacy laws where we operate. Your Personal Information will be kept on our servers or on those of our service providers and only those employees that require it for the purposes of their duties will have access to your Personal Information. 

 

No security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed to prevent any unauthorized interception, access, disclosure, alteration, destruction, or other type of misuse. We also depend on you to protect your information. Therefore, we urge you to take adequate precautions to protect your personal data as well, including never sharing your account password or other sensitive or confidential information with anyone. If you become aware of any breach of security or privacy, please notify us immediately. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, we do not accept liability for unauthorized disclosure.

 

If we learn of a systems security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Services, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically. We may post a notice on the Services if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice of a security breach), please contact us.

 

9. SOCIAL MEDIA FEATURES.

 

The Services may include integrated social media features, such as sharing articles. These features may collect the email address you use for that social network.

10. MINORS.

 

The Services are not directed to children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13.

11. NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA CONSUMERS.

 

California law permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their Personal Information’ (if any, and as defined under applicable California law) for such third parties’ direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of Personal Information disclosed to those parties. If you are a California resident and would like to request this information, please submit your request to hello@brilliantly.co

 

This Supplemental California Privacy Notice only applies to our processing of Personal Information that is subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). The CCPA specifies that natural persons who are California residents have the right to know what categories of Personal Information we have collected about them and whether we have disclosed or sold that Personal Information for a business purpose (e.g., to a service provider) in the preceding twelve (12) months. For purposes of the CCPA, we do not “sell” any Personal Information, nor do we have actual knowledge of any “sale” of Personal Information of minors under 18 years of age. As of the Effective Date of this Privacy Policy, we do not qualify as a “business” for purposes of the CCPA.

 

12. NOTICE TO NEVADA RESIDENTS.

 

If you are a resident of Nevada, you have the right to opt out of the sale of certain Personal Information to third parties who intend to license or sell that Personal Information. Please note that we do not currently sell your Personal Information as sales are defined in Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 603A. If you have any questions, please contact us as set forth below.

 

13. NOTICE TO NON-U.S. RESIDENTS.

 

We are a U.S.-based company and only intend to provide our Services to residents of the U.S. at this time. However, you may have additional rights based on your home country or location. We are committed to complying with all laws and regulations that may apply to our collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information. For example, data located in the EU may be subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), which allows for eligible data subjects to withdraw their consent to the collection and processing of Personal Information, as well as to exercise the following rights:

 

  • Right to be Informed.

  • Right to Access.

  • Right to Rectify.

  • Right to Erasure.

  • Right to Restrict Processing.

  • Right to Data Portability.

  • Right to Object.

  • Rights related to Automated Individual Decision-Making and Profiling.

 

Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your Personal Information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent. If you believe you are entitled to certain rights based on your home country or location, please contact us by email at hello@brilliantly.co. You may also have the right to submit a complaint to a data protection authority about our collection and use of your Personal Information. For more information, please contact your local data protection authority.

 

Our legal basis for collecting and using the Personal Information described above will depend on the Personal Information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect or process Personal Information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the Personal Information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect Personal Information from you or may otherwise need the Personal Information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.

 

14. VERIFIABLE CONSUMER REQUESTS.

 

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your Personal Information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. In order to verify your request, we will ask you to provide your name, email address, and certain other pieces of identifying information. Once you or your authorized agent has submitted the requested information and any necessary supporting documentation, we will confirm the information by reviewing it against our records. The only purpose for which we will use such submitted information is to verify your identity and once the submitted information has been used for that purpose, it will be deleted from our records in accordance with this Prrivacy Policy. To designate an authorized agent, please contact us.

 

15. ACCESSING, MANAGING, AND/OR UPDATING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION.

We are always improving, and we may occasionally modify or update this Privacy Policy accordingly. Any information that we collect is subject to the policy in effect at the time such information is collected. We may, however, modify and revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we may use the email address or other Personal Information you’ve provided to us to notify you of such changes or post a notification on the Services, and we will indicate when such changes will become effective in any such notice by updating the Effective Date.
