2. Information Collected by WINNOW
a. Customer-Furnished Information
b. Automatically Collected Information
The collection of usage information (i.e., frequency of visits to the Website), will be used only in aggregate form, and not in a manner that would identify a user personally. We may also provide this aggregate information to partners. Such partners may use the information to understand how often and in what ways people use the Website, so that they can provide you with an optimal experience. We will not disclose aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.

If you do not wish to receive such e-mails, then please indicate so by clicking “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of the e-mail you received. Please note that if you do not want to receive legal notices from us, they will still govern your use of the Website, and you are responsible for reviewing such legal notices.

3. Use or Disclosure of Your Information
a. General Disclosure
Except as otherwise stated herein, WINNOW does not sell or trade your personal information to outside parties.
b. Internal Use
c. Advertisers and other Partners
We may give certain advertisers or partners with whom we are associated access to certain PII so that they may choose the demographic information of users who will see their advertisements and/or promotional offers. You agree that we may provide any of the information we have collected from you in non-personally identifiable form to an associate, so that associate may select the appropriate audience for that associate’s advertisements and/or offers.
We may deliver a file to you through the Website from an ad network. These files allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for us and for the advertisers. They also enable ad networks to deliver targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because of the manner in which these files work, the ad networks will be able to view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.
d. Affiliates We Do Not Control
The Website might contain references or links to third party websites or businesses. We have no control over the policies and practices of these third party websites or businesses as to privacy and, if you elect to take part in any transaction or service relating to a third party, please review all such third party’s business or website policies.
We engage third parties (companies and people) to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, our agents do not have any right to use PII we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist.
f. User Submissions
Any content voluntarily disclosed online in a way other users can view becomes publicly available, and can be collected and used by others. Your user name may also be displayed to other users if and when you upload such content. We are not responsible for any use of PII that you disclose online in a manner that others can view, including on our Website (e.g., in product reviews).
g. Disclosure Pursuant to Applicable Law
WINNOW reserves the right to access, read, preserve, transfer, and/or disclose, in whole or in part, any information, including PII, that we reasonably and in good faith believe is necessary to comply with applicable laws or the order of any court or tribunal, government agency, commission, or subdivision; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of WINNOW, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
h. Transfers Arising From Sale of Business or Assets
Customer information, including PII, may be transferred by WINNOW to a third party in the event of an asset sale or purchase, or if WINNOW is acquired or sold, goes out of business, files for bankruptcy protection, or undergoes a change of control.
i. On Consent
Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your PII may be intentionally shared with third parties, and will have the option of consenting to or refusing to consent to the sharing of this information.
4. Protection of Information
No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, it is not possible to, and WINNOW does not, guarantee the complete or absolute security of your PII or other data you provide to WINNOW. Nevertheless, WINNOW maintains security policies and procedures designed to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the PII. The Website, including any communications using the built-in messenger service, is fully encrypted, and WINNOW also utilizes a certified PCI DSS Level 1 compliant service provider for its Website platform.
Your account is protected by a password for your privacy and security. If you access your account via a third party, you may have modified sign-on protections via that third party. It is your responsibility to prevent unauthorized access to your account and PII by selecting and protecting your password and/or other sign-on mechanism appropriately, and limiting access to your computer or device and browser by signing off after you have finished
accessing your account.
5. Accessibility of Your Personal Information
Through your account settings, you may access and, in some cases, edit or delete some of the information you’ve provided to us. The information you can view, update, and delete may change as the Website changes. If you have any questions about viewing or updating information we have on file about you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pursuant to applicable law, California residents are entitled to ask us for a notice identifying the categories of PII which we share with our affiliates and/or third parties for marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such affiliates and/or third parties.
