Our Opt-in/Opt-out Policy
We currently provide the following opt-out opportunities:
PRIVACY SHIELD STATEMENT
UserIQ’s accountability for personal data that it receives under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party is described in the Privacy Shield Principles. In particular, UserIQ remains responsible and liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if third-party agents that it engages in processing the personal data on its behalf do so in a manner inconsistent with the Principles unless UserIQ proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, UserIQ commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. EU individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Shield policy should first contact UserIQ at firstname.lastname@example.org. UserIQ has further committed to cooperate with the panel established by the EU data protection authorities (DPAs) with regard to unresolved Privacy Shield complaints concerning data transferred from the EU. Under Privacy Shield, organizations must respond to individuals within 45 days of receiving a complaint. UserIQ will make every effort to respond to your inquiry in a reasonable timeframe.
You should also get in touch with the Data Protection Authority of your choice. There is a comprehensive list of Data Protection Authorities and a quick look-up tool hosted by the European Commission at the following URL: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/reform/what-are-data-protection-authorities-dpas_en.
If your issues are not resolved by those means, you have the right to invoke binding arbitration through the Privacy Shield Panel upon written notice to email@example.com.
The Federal Trade Commission has investigation and enforcement authority over UserIQ’s compliance with the Privacy Shield.
DIRECT MARKETING AND DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
UserIQ does not track its users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your browser may include controls to block and delete cookies, web beacons and similar technologies, to allow you to opt out of data collection through those technologies.
California residents are entitled to contact us to request information about whether we have disclosed Personal Data to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Under the California “Shine the Light” law, California residents may opt-out of our disclosure of Personal Data to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. You may choose to opt-out of the sharing of your Personal Data with third parties for marketing purposes. To make such a request you should send (a) an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading “California Privacy Rights,” or (b) a letter addressed to our address below. In your request, please attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response. Please be aware that not all information sharing is covered by the California privacy rights requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response. We reserve our right not to respond to requests submitted to addresses other than the addresses specified in this paragraph.
