Non-Personally Identifiable Information In addition to information you voluntarily provide to us, SF may collect on behalf of our clients and/or on our own behalf non-personally identifiable information (e.g., Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, device identifiers, “cookies,” browser information, Internet tags, and navigational data). We do not attempt to associate such non-personally identifiable information with PII or with specific individuals.
Sharing, Storage, and Retention of Personally Identifiable Information
Sharing. Except as set forth in Section 4d, SF does not sell or rent PII to third parties, and shares PII with our clients only when the client has been identified to you. SF does not otherwise disclose your PII to unaffiliated third parties, unless you have consented to such disclosure, SF in its sole discretion determines disclosure is necessary to protect SF, its clients, or other users of our website, apps, and services, or such disclosure is required by law. Notwithstanding, SF does share PII with its corporate affiliates.
Storage. SF has measures in place to ensure that PII is safeguarded against loss and unauthorized access, use, modification, disclosure or other misuse. SF stores all PII in a secured environment behind its “firewall.” Only those employees whose job responsibilities require them to use the PII are permitted access to such data. All employees sign confidentiality agreements and are not permitted to disclose any PII.
Retention. SF will retain your PII for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected and to comply with applicable laws.
Analyzing Data. One of the ways SF improves its solutions is by analyzing your data to create a more engaging and effective experience. We may use the data provided by Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to develop the site and content around our users’ interests. SF may aggregate and anonymize data to provide better products which share with third parties. SF may share information created by using aggregated and anonymized data with affiliates, select business partners, and third parties.
Sharing and Use of Non-Personally Identifiable Information. We use the non-personally identifiable and aggregated information we collect to better understand how visitors to our website/apps engage with the content we are involved with, and to assess, improve, and quantify the response to such content. We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information with our clients and affiliates.
Collection of Information by Third Parties and Links to Third-Party Websites. Our website may serve ads from and/or link to the websites of third-parties. Such third-parties may use automated methods to collect information about visitors to our websites.
Special Note About Children Unless otherwise specifically indicated, SF’s programs are not available to anyone under the age of thirteen (13). We do not solicit PII from children, and no one under the age of thirteen (13) should submit PII to us. If we discover that PII submitted to us pertains to a child under the age of thirteen (13), we will delete it.
California Privacy Rights
Rights of Minors. If you are a resident of the State of California and between the ages of thirteen (13) and eighteen (18), and have registered as a user of one or more of our website or apps, you may request the removal of content or information you have posted that can be accessed by other users, by updating your profile and/or preferences, Please note, however, that removal of content or information you have posted from our websites or services does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information, particularly if the content or information you posted has been copied and/or reposted by a third party.
California Customers Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, a California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (“California customer”) is entitled to request information about whether the business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes, unless the business adopts and discloses to the public a policy of not disclosing customer’s personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes if the customer “opts out” of such communications. In that case, the business may comply with the law by notifying the customer of his or her right to prevent disclosure of personal information and providing a cost-free means to exercise that right. Our cost-free “opt-out” procedure is described in Section 5, above. If you use our “opt out” procedure, we will not disclose your personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.
Do Not Track Signals. California law requires us to let you know how we respond to web browser Do Not Track (DNT) signals. Because there currently isn’t an industry or legal standard for recognizing or honoring DNT signals, we don’t respond to them at this time.
