Gathering, Use and Disclosure of Non-Personally-Identifying Information.
 
We collect both Non-Personally-Identifying Information and Personally-Identifying Information from you. Non-Personally-Identifying Information is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person or entity.
Personally-Identifying Information, by contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person or entity. Personally-Identifying Information may include persistent identifiers, such as a customer number held in a Web Cookie (defined below) or processor serial number, that is combined with other available data that identifies an individual.
 
Gathering Non-Personally-Identifying Information.
 
Web Browsers. Like most site operators, we gather Non-Personally-Identifying Information from you of the sort that web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes your Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system and browser type, and the locations of the web pages you view right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving this Site. Web Cookies. A Web Cookie is a string of information that a site stores on your computer, and your browser provides to this Site, each time you submit a query to this Site. We may use Web Cookies to track the pages that you visit during each Site session, both to help us improve your experience and to help us understand how this Site is being used. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO HAVE WEB COOKIES PLACED ON YOUR COMPUTER, YOU SHOULD SET YOUR BROWSER TO REFUSE WEB COOKIES BEFORE ACCESSING THIS SITE, WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT CERTAIN FEATURES OF THIS SITE MAY NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY WITHOUT THE AID OF WEB COOKIES. IF YOU REFUSE WEB COOKIES, YOU ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RESULTING LOSS OF FUNCTIONALITY. Web Beacons. A Web Beacon is an object that is embedded in a web page. It is usually invisible to you but allows site operators to check whether you have viewed a particular web page or email communication. We may place Web Beacons on pages of this Site. You may not decline Web Beacons. However, they may be rendered ineffective by declining all cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis.
 
Use of Non-Personally-Identifying Information.
 
We analyze Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of this Site to help us better understand how this Site is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, we are able to better design this Site to improve your experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use.
 
Disclosure of Non-Personally-Identifying Information.
 
From time to time, we may also release the Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from Site users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of this Site.
 
Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personally-Identifying Information.
 
As defined above, Personally-Identifying Information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity.
We will only collect Personally-Identifying Information that you knowingly submit to us. We will not disclose your Personally-Identifying Information to third parties unless we obtain your permission to do so at the time we collect it, except as set forth below:

Any unauthorized access to or use of this Site or information collected and maintained by this Site should be immediately brought to our attention by sending us an email at: support@readz.com .
 
Storage of Personally Identifying Information Outside of the United States.
 
Personally-Identifying Information may be stored on servers outside of the United States, and, as a result, may be subject to access requests from law enforcement in other jurisdictions.
 
Other.
 
Notwithstanding any other provision in this Privacy Policy, we will disclose Personally-Identifying Information in the following limited circumstances:
 
Employees, Third-Party Processors and Third-Party Service Providers.
 
We will disclose Personally-Identifying Information to our employees, contractors, affiliates, distributors, dealers, vendors and suppliers who process Personally-Identifying Information on our behalf, participate with us in the provision or operation of this Site or provide you with services relating to products available on or through the Site.

We disclose Personally-Identifying information if: (1) required to do so by law, or in response to a subpoena or court order; (2) we believe in our sole discretion that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect against fraud, to protect the property or other rights of us or other users, third parties or the public at large; or (3) we believe that you have abused the service by using it to attack other systems or to gain unauthorized access to any other system, to engage in spamming or otherwise to violate applicable laws.
 
Business Transfers; Bankruptcy.
 
We reserve the right to transfer all Personally-Identifying Information in our possession to a successor entity in the event of a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy or other sale of all or a portion of our assets. Other than to the extent ordered by a bankruptcy or other court, the use and disclosure of all transferred Personally-Identifying Information will be subject to this Privacy Policy, or to a new privacy policy if you are given notice of that new privacy policy and you affirmatively opt-in to accept it. Personally-Identifying Information submitted or collected after a transfer, however, may be subject to a new privacy policy adopted by the successor entity.

If you opt-in to receive our marketing materials upon registration, we will email you about products and services that we believe may be of interest to you.

Third parties are under no obligation to comply with this Privacy Policy with respect to Personally-Identifying Information that you provide directly to those third parties or that those third parties collect for themselves. We do not control the third-party sites that may be accessible through this Site. Thus, this Privacy Policy does not apply to information provided to third-party sites or gathered by the third parties that operate them. Before visiting a third-party site, whether by means of a link on this Site or otherwise, and before providing any Personally-Identifying Information to any third party, you should inform yourself of the privacy policies and practices (if any) of the third party responsible for that site, and should take those steps necessary to your discretion, to protect your privacy.

Because of changes in technology and the growth and development of our business, or for other business reasons, we may need to modify this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will post on this Site a copy of the modified Privacy Policy, which will become effective 30 days after it is first posted on this Site. You should regularly review this Site to ensure that you are informed of any changes and if you are also a registered user, be sure that the email address on record is current.

If any modification is unacceptable to you, you shall cease using this Site. Your continued access to the Site will indicate you have accepted the change.

EU & Swiss Privacy Policy
This Policy governs our information-handling practices as applicable to residents in the United Kingdom ("UK"), European Union (“EU”), European Economic Area (“EEA”), and Switzerland (collectively, the “Data Subjects”) that are visiting our website, www.Readz.com, and the other websites under the Readz.com domain (collectively, the “Sites”), or are customers who use our SaaS product, web design software, tools, and related services (together with the Sites, the “Service”).
This Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose, and protect Data Subjects’ information as part of the Service in accordance with data-protection laws in the UK, EU, EEA, and Switzerland (collectively the “Data Protection Laws”). Any discussion of your use of the Service in this Policy is meant to include your visits and other interactions with the Sites and Services, whether or not you are a user of Readz’s SaaS product.
Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Policy have the meaning given them in our Terms of Service or Global Privacy Policy.
By accessing and using the Service, you signify your acceptance to the terms of this Policy. If you do not agree with or you are not comfortable with any aspect of this Policy, our Global Policy or the Terms of Service, you should immediately discontinue access or use of our Services. In the event of a conflict between the Global Privacy Policy and this Policy, this Policy supersedes the Global Privacy Policy.
1. Our relationship to you
In order for you to understand Readz’s data protection obligations and your rights to your Personal Information under this Policy, it is important that you identify which relationship(s) you have with Readz.
    - A “User” is an individual providing personal data to us via our website or other services, products or platforms, such as by signing up for our newsletter. Readz is in a “data controller” relationship with Users.
    - Readz does not have a direct relationship with Customers’ End Users. A “Customer End User” is an individual that provides their Personal Information to our Customers. We do not control the purposes nor the means by which this Personal Information is collected, and we are not in a direct relationship with Customer End Users. For details about how Personal Information about Customer End Users is handled, please review our Customers’ privacy policies instead of this one, and contact them for further information.
    Hereinafter we may refer to Customers and Users collectively as “you.”
    2. Notice
    Readz provides notice to you through posted privacy policies and may provide additional "just-in-time" disclosures about the data collection, use, and sharing practices of specific Services. The Global Privacy Policy in the section above generally describes our privacy practices, while this Policy is specific to Users and Customers located in the UK, EU, EEA, and Switzerland while using our Services. This Policy describes how we process Personal Information from the UK, EU, EEA, and Switzerland in accordance with Privacy Shield and applicable data protection law.
    3. Collection of Personal Information
    As described in the Global Privacy Policy, Readz collects various types of Personally-Identifying Information about you while you are using the Services. Information that is anonymized or aggregated is not “Personal Information.”
    In general, we collect the following types of Personal Information:
    - Registration data: full name, email address. - Profile data: portfolio of work or interest. - Financial data: bank account information, payment card information, transaction history, and/or company billing information. - Transaction data: information about the transactions you make to use our Services, and/or timestamps when your plan renews.

    We collect information about your account usage and monitor your interactions with our Services. We may use any of your Personal Information collected on our Services for these purposes. The consequences of not processing your Personal Information for such purposes is the termination of your account, as we cannot perform our Services in accordance with our terms.
    To provide Service communications.
    We may reach out to you to send you administrative or account-related information to keep you in the loop about our Services, alert you of relevant security issues or updates, or provide other transaction-related information to you. While we generally use your registration data for this purpose, we may send personalized Service communications to you based on other Personal Information, such as interaction, payment, or transaction data. Without such communication, you may miss out on important developments relating to your account that may affect how you can use our Services.
    To provide customer service.
    When you contact our customer service channel, we process your Personal Information to respond to your questions, disputes, feedback, or issues with our Services.

    To engage in marketing activities.
    We may send you marketing communications from time to time. Such marketing communications may contain information about our events, partner events, or promotional offers. We may use your interaction and/or transaction data to provide you with targeted marketing communications. You can opt out of our marketing communications at any time and free of charge.
    We will only use your Personal Information for the purposes above or for compatible purposes.
    If we wish to share your Personal Information with third parties that are not described in this Policy or the Global Privacy Policy, we may request your permission as required by Data Protection Law. You may opt out of having your Personal Information shared with third parties, or from allowing us to use your Personal Information for any purpose that is incompatible with the purposes for which we originally collected it or subsequently obtained your authorization. However, if you limit the way we use your Personal Information, certain features or Services may not be available to you.
    5. Third party sources of information
    We only collect Personal Information about you from third parties that you voluntarily choose to connect with our Services.

We process this information for the purposes of performance of our contracts with you. For more information, please see the Global Privacy Policy above.
    6. Third party recipients
    Readz conducts the majority of data processing activities required to provide you with the Services. However, we do engage third-party service providers to assist with supporting our Services, including vendors in the following areas:
    - Credit card or payment processors - Cloud storage providers - Customer support tools - Product development tools - IT and security service providers, and - Marketing or analytics tools
    Each service provider is vetted and bound by contractual obligations that are equivalent to the provision of this Policy or more stringent. See the “Accountability for Onward Transfers” section below for more information about our agreements with third parties.
    7. Retention
    We are committed to keeping your Personal Information secure on our Services. We limit our storage of your Personal Information to the amount of time necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected the Personal Information, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting obligations, or to resolve disputes. Although retention laws and requirements vary by jurisdiction, we have some standard retention periods for parts of your Personal Information which are described below:
    - Contact information collected for marketing purposes, such as your name and email address, is retained on an ongoing basis until you unsubscribe from our marketing communications. Thereafter we will add your contact information to our suppression list indefinitely to respect your unsubscribe request. - Browser interaction data, such as cookies and trackers, is kept for a period of up to one year from expiry of the cookie or date of collection. - Product analytics data is kept for up to 5 years, and automatically deleted on an ongoing basis.
    If you have questions about retention periods that apply to any other data, please contact us at privacy@readz.com.
    8. International transfers
    Readz uses approved data transfer mechanisms to transfer your Personal Information in and out of the United States and other jurisdictions. We rely on European Commission–approved Standard Contractual Clauses as a legal mechanism where required for any data transfers from the U.S. to a country outside the UK, EU, EEA, or Switzerland to the extent that any such transfers occur.
    In relation to transfers of Personal Information to the U.S., Readz receives Personal Information pursuant to Standard Contractual Clauses and other data transfer mechanisms. Readz also has certified its compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework (hereinafter, the “Framework” or “Privacy Shield”) as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, disclosure, and retention of Personal Information transferred from the UK, EU, EEA, and Switzerland to the United States. We recognize that the Court of Justice of the European Union ruled in July 2020 that a certification under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework no longer can serve as the basis by which entities subject to the GDPR export Personal Information to countries whose laws have not been recognized by the European Commission as providing a high level of protection for the information. As affected customers who relied only on our Privacy Shield certification transition to the use of Standard Contractual Clauses and other methods for transferring Personal Information to Readz under the GDPR, Readz will continue to honor our obligation to comply with the Privacy Shield Principles with respect to such information.
    This EU & Swiss Privacy Policy and the Readz Global Privacy Policy describe Readz’s privacy practices. In the event there is a conflict between the terms in the Global Privacy Policy and this Policy, this Policy shall govern for any conflicts related to UK, EU, EEA, or Swiss data subjects. To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view our certification, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/.
    9. Accountability for onward transfer
    Readz complies with the Privacy Shield Accountability for Onward Transfer Principle for all onward transfers of Personal Information from the UK, EU, EEA, and Switzerland, including the onward transfer liability provisions. Readz contractually obligated third-party agents or service providers to provide the same level of protection as required by the Privacy Shield Framework and under the Data Protection Laws. In addition, we limit and specify the purpose(s) for processing your Personal Information consistent with any notice provided to you and your consent.
    Upon request by the United States Department of Commerce, Readz will provide a summary or representative copy of the relevant privacy provisions of its agreement with a third-party agent. In certain situations, Readz may be required to disclose your Personal Information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, to comply with a judicial proceeding or court order, or as otherwise required by law.
    10. Security We are committed to protecting the security of your Personal Information by using reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards. Please refer to the Global Privacy Policy for more detailed information about our security safeguards.
    11. Direct marketing
    Direct marketing includes any communications to you that are only based on advertising or promoting products and services. Transactional communications about your account or our Services are not considered “direct marketing” communications. We will only contact Customers by electronic means (including email) based on our legitimate interests or the Customer’s consent. When we rely on legitimate interest, we will only send you information about our Services that are similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale or negotiations of a sale to you.
    If you do not want us to use your Personal Information in this way, or to pass your Personal Information on to third parties for marketing purposes, please go to the email settings for your account to opt out, click an unsubscribe link in your emails, or contact us at privacy@readz.com. You can object to direct marketing at any time and free of charge.
    12. Your rights
    You have the rights to your Personal Information that are described below. You can exercise your rights by contacting us at privacy@​readz.com so that we may consider your request under applicable law. When we receive an individual rights request via email, we may take steps to verify your identity before complying with the request to protect your privacy and security. Right to withdraw consent. When we rely on your consent for processing of your Personal Information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. However, the withdrawal of your consent will not affect the lawfulness of Readz’s processing based on consent before your withdrawal. - Right of access to and rectification of your Personal Information. You have a right to request a copy of your Personal Information stored with Readz. We will provide a copy to you without undue delay subject to some fee associated with gathering of the information (as permitted by law). We may limit or deny your request if providing you with a copy could adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others. You may also request us to correct or update any inaccurate Personal Information stored by us. - Right to erasure (or, “The right to be forgotten”). You have the right to request erasure of your Personal Information that: (a) is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed; (b) was collected in relation to processing that you previously consented to, but no longer consent to; or (c) was collected in relation to processing activities to which you object, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for our processing. Your right to erasure is subject to limitations by relevant Data Protection Laws. - Right to data portability. If we process your Personal Information based on a contract with you or based on your consent, or the processing is carried out by automated means, you may request to receive your Personal Information in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format, and to have us transfer your Personal Information directly to another data controller, where technically feasible, unless exercise of this right adversely affects the rights and freedoms of others. - Right to restriction of processing. You have the right to restrict our processing of your Personal Information where one of the following applies:
    1. You contest the accuracy of your Personal Information that we processed. In such instances, we will restrict processing during the period necessary for us to verify the accuracy of your Personal Information. 2. The processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of your Personal Information and request the restriction of its use instead. 3. We no longer need your Personal Information for the purposes of the processing, but it is required by you to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims. 4. You have objected to processing, pending the verification of whether the legitimate grounds of Readz’s processing override your rights.
    Restricted Personal Information shall only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest. We will inform you if the restriction is lifted.
    - Notification of erasure, rectification, and restriction. We will communicate any rectification or erasure of your Personal Information or restriction of processing to each recipient to whom your Personal Information has been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. We will inform you about those recipients if you request this information. If we have made your Personal Information public and we are required to erase the Personal Information, we will, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other parties that are processing your Personal Information that you have requested the erasure of any links to, or copy or replication of your Personal Information. - Right to object to processing. Where the processing of your Personal Information is based on consent, contract, or legitimate interests, you may restrict or object, at any time, to the processing of your Personal Information as permitted by applicable law. We can continue to process your Personal Information if it is necessary for the defense of legal claims, or for any other exceptions permitted by applicable law. - Automated individual decision-making, including profiling. You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing of your Personal Information, including profiling, which produces legal or similarly significant effects on you. There may be exceptions or limitations to this right as defined under relevant Data Protection Laws.
    13. Limitations to your rights
    Your rights to your Personal Information are not without limits. Access may be denied when:
    - Denial of access is required or authorized by law - Granting access would have a negative impact on other's privacy - Doing so protects our rights and properties, or - Where the request is frivolous or vexatious
    14. Recourse, enforcement, & liability
    We will investigate and work expeditiously to resolve any complaints or disputes in accordance with this Policy and the Privacy Shield Framework. If you have an inquiry or complaint regarding our privacy policies or practices, please contact us first at privacy@Readz.com.
    If you have an unresolved complaint or dispute arising under the requirements of the Privacy Shield Framework, we agree to refer your complaint under the Framework to an independent dispute resolution mechanism free of charge. Our independent dispute resolution mechanism is JAMS. For more information and to file a complaint, visit the JAMS website. We are also subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission with respect to the Framework.
    Please note that if your complaint is not resolved through these channels, under limited circumstances, a binding arbitration option may be available before a Privacy Shield Panel.
    You have also a right to lodge a complaint with a competent supervisory authority.
    15. Children's data
    We recognize that some Data Protection Laws vary based on the age of consent. Depending on the jurisdiction, the age of consent can be between 13 to 16 years old. We do not knowingly request to collect Personal Information from any Data Subject under the age of consent as defined by the jurisdiction in which the Data Subject resides. If we are aware of or suspect that a Data Subject is under the age of consent, we will require the Data Subject to terminate their account. We will also take steps to delete the information as soon as possible. Please notify us if you know of any individuals under the age of consent using our Services.
    16. Changes to this Policy
    We may change this Policy at any time and the changes will apply to any Personal Information we already hold and to any new Personal Information collected after the change occurs. If we make any material changes to this Policy, we will endeavor to notify you by email or by posting a prominent notice on the Services prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices. Your continued use of our Services after the effective date of this Policy constitutes an acceptance of the amended terms.
