How We Share Information About You

We may share the information collected via our Services with companies who work on our behalf to help us provide and support the Services and our products and services.

We may change our ownership or corporate organization while providing the Services. We may transfer to another entity or its affiliates or service providers some or all information about you in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, acquisition, sale of assets or any line of business, change in ownership control, or financing transaction. We cannot promise that an acquiring party or the merged entity will have the same privacy practices or treat your information the same as described in this Policy.

We may use or disclose information about you if required to do so by law or on the good-faith believe that such sharing is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on us or our Services; (b) protect and defend our rights or property, the Services, or our users; or (c) act to protect the personal safety of our employees and agents, other users of the Services, or members of the public.

DWM uses the information you make available to us when you interact with our Services to provide you with advertising that is more relevant to you. We partner with third parties to provide advertisements on our Services about our clients’ products and services that may be of interest to you. The advertisements you see may be based on information collected through cookies, web beacons and other tracking technologies from our Services. These third parties may use persistent identifiers to track your Internet usage across other websites and mobile applications in their networks beyond the Services. While DWM will not share information that personally identifies you with unaffiliated third parties for their own uses, such third parties may, with sufficient data from other sources, be able to personally identify you.

You can learn more about ad serving companies and the options available to limit their collection and use of your information by visiting the websites for the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance. Similarly, you can learn about your options to opt-out of mobile app tracking by certain advertising networks through your device settings and by resetting the advertiser ID on your Apple or Android device.

Android: http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/

Please note that opting-out of advertising networks services does not mean that you will not receive advertising while using our Services or on other websites, nor will it prevent the receipt of interest-based advertising from third parties that do not participate in these programs. It will, however, exclude you from interest-based advertising conducted through participating networks, as provided by their policies and choice mechanisms.  If you delete your cookies, you may also delete your opt-out preferences.

PRIVACY SHIELD POLICY
Last Updated: [October 3rd 2018]

EU-U.S. AND SWISS-U.S. PRIVACY SHIELD NOTICE

DemandWorks Media (DWM) generates business-to-business leads for its clients. To provide this service, DWM may receive personal information.

This Privacy Shield Policy (this “Policy”) applies to personal information transferred to DWM in the United States from organizations subject to data protection law in the European Economic Area (EEA) (which includes the member states of the European Union (EU) plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) and from Switzerland. This Policy sets out our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting and disclosing that personal information. Please see our Privacy Policy for an explanation of how we collect, use, store, and disclose information about visitors to and subscribers of our websites.

DEFINITIONS

For purposes of this Policy, the following definitions shall apply:

“Agent” means any third party that collects or uses personal information under the instructions of, and solely for, DWM or to which DWM discloses personal information for use on DWM’s behalf.

“DemandWorks Media” or “DWM” means DemandWorks Media, LLC and any of its subsidiaries, predecessors and successors in the United States.

“Personal information” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person. Personal information does not include information that is anonymized or aggregated.

“Sensitive information” means any personal information that reveals race, ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, information that concerns health or sex life, and information about criminal or administrative proceedings and sanctions.

EU-U.S. AND SWISS-U.S. PRIVACY SHIELD PRINCIPLES

DWM participates in and complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland transferred to the United States pursuant to Privacy Shield. DWM has certified that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles with respect to such data. If there is any conflict between the policies in this privacy policy and data subject rights under the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern. To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view our certification page, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/

Notice

DWM receives business contact information such as name, business mailing address, business phone number, and business email address. DWM uses this information on behalf of its clients to identify individuals who may be interested in its clients’ products (i.e., performs lead generation), and to provide email newsletters to individuals who sign up to receive them through its ebulletins service.

Choice

If you are not a resident of the EEA or Switzerland or we have received your information from you through our websites or our direct outreach to you, please see our Privacy Policy for information about your choices.

DWM will offer EEA and Swiss individuals whose personal information has been transferred to us the opportunity to choose whether the personal information it has received is to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. An individual may opt-out of such uses of their personal information by contacting us at the address given below.

DWM does not knowingly collect sensitive personal information, and would delete such information immediately if it were discovered.

Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation

DWM will use personal information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. DWM will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete and current.

Transfers to Agents

DWM may disclose personal information to Agents, including but not limited to, providers of analytical, hosting, payment processing and other support services. Agents may have access to personal information if needed to perform their functions for DWM. DWM does not transfer personal information to non-Agent third parties.

DWM will require its Agents to safeguard personal information consistent with this Policy by contract obligating the Agent to provide at least the same level of protection as is set forth in this policy.

In certain situations, DWM may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

DWM’s accountability for personal data that it receives in the United States under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party is described in the Privacy Shield Principles. In particular, DWM remains responsible and liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if third-party agents that it engages to process the personal data on its behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless DWM proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

Access and Correction

Pursuant to the Privacy Shield Frameworks, EU and Swiss individuals have the right to obtain our confirmation of whether we maintain personal information relating to you in the United States. Upon request, we will provide you with access to the personal information that we hold about you. You may also may correct, amend, or delete the personal information we hold about you. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data transferred to the United States under Privacy Shield, should contact us at the address given below. If requested to remove data, we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.

Security

DWM will take reasonable and appropriate precautions to protect personal information in its possession from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

Enforcement

With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Frameworks, DWM is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.

DWM will conduct compliance audits of its relevant privacy practices to verify adherence to this Policy. Any employee that DWM determines is in violation of this policy will be subject to disciplinary action.

Dispute Resolution – Privacy Shield

In compliance with the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Principles, DWM commits to resolve complaints about your privacy and our collection or use of your personal information transferred to the United States pursuant to Privacy Shield. European Union and Swiss individuals with Privacy Shield inquiries or complaints should first contact DWM at the address given below. DWM will investigate and attempt to resolve complaints regarding use and disclosure of personal information by reference to the principles contained in this Policy.

DWM has further committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the Privacy Shield Principles to an independent dispute resolution mechanism, the BBB EU PRIVACY SHIELD, operated by the Council of Better Business Bureaus. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, please visit www.bbb.org/EU-privacy-shield/for-eu-consumers for more information and to file a complaint. This service is provided free of charge to you.

If your Privacy Shield complaint cannot be resolved through the above channels, under certain conditions, you may invoke binding arbitration for some residual claims not resolved by other redress mechanisms.
