Further Disclosures Under the CCPA
During the past twelve (12) months, we have collected the following categories of personal information from the following sources, for the following purposes, and have shared them with the following third party service providers:

Personal Identifiers & contact information: Information you give us when you sign up to access our Services, or other information you choose to give us. Our purposes for collecting this information are:

  • To create your profile and so you can access our Services;

  • To fix errors

Feedback: Your questions, suggestions or views on the Services. Our purposes for collecting this information are:

  • Third party service providers who carry out various activities and services in support of or for the benefit of our Services

  • Advertising partners for the service of advertisements within our Services

  • Marketing partners for marketing or promotions such as Mailchimp, based on your communication preferences

We do not “sell” consumer data as most people would understand the term “sell”. However, the CCPA defines the “sale” of information broadly to include activities we believe most people would understand as “information sharing”. For example, the CCPA defines “sell,” “selling,” “sale,” or “sold,” as selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, a consumer’s personal information by the business to another business or a third party for monetary or other valuable consideration. The term “other valuable consideration” is not defined in the CCPA. Notwithstanding that, we do not believe we “sell” consumer data as the term “sell” is defined under the CCPA. However, we do share consumer data with our affiliates, third party service providers, advertising partners and marketing partners as explained above in this Further Disclosures Under the CCPA section. To the extent those activities may constitute a “sale”, we have shared such data with such parties the past twelve (12) months and anticipate continuing to share such data with the same parties in the next twelve (12) months. If our data sharing practices change, we will update this policy to reflect that change.

10. Nevada Residents

(7) any other information concerning a customer collected from the customer through our Internet website or online service and maintained in combination with an identifier in a form that makes the information personally identifiable.
To exercise your right to opt out of the sale of Covered Information under Nevada law, please contact us and be ready to provide your name, address, and email. We may ask for other information in order to confirm your identity. Any information we receive from you in order to confirm your identity will solely be used for such verification purposes.

11. EEA, UK and Switzerland only

With respect to personal data of individuals from the European Economic Area (“EEA”), the United Kingdom (“UK”) or Switzerland, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal data will depend on the personal data concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

Information about you may be stored and processed in the European Economic Area, the United States or any other country in which EGL or agents or contractors maintain facilities, and by accessing our websites and using our mobile apps, software and services, you consent to the transfer of your information outside of your country. Such countries may have laws which are different, and potentially not as protective as the laws of your own country.

Whenever we share personal data originating in the EEA, the UK or Switzerland, we will rely on lawful measures to transfer that data, such as the Privacy Shield or the EU standard contractual clauses.
