This privacy notice sets out the basis on which any Personal Data we collect from or about you, or that you provide to us, including through www.traackr.com and any sub-domain thereof (“our website”), will be processed by us in accordance with applicable Data Protection Laws, provided that this privacy notice does not apply to information processed under Traackr's Influencer Privacy Notice. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your Personal Data and how we will treat it.
Our website is not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children.
It is important that you read this privacy notice together with any other privacy notice or fair processing notice we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal data about you so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your data. This privacy notice supplements the other notices and is not intended to override them.
As described in further detail below, Traackr, Inc. 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, and the associated Privacy Shield Principles (currently available at www.privacyshield.gov), regarding the collection, use, and retention of Personal Data (as defined below) transferred from the European Economic Area (the “EEA”), the United Kingdom and/or Switzerland, respectively, to the United States (“transfer data”). The Privacy Shield List is available at https://www.privacyshield.gov/list. If there is any conflict between the terms in this privacy notice and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall prevail.
If an organization with which you are associated (an “Organization”) signs up to use our Platform, we may receive Personal Data about you in connection with our provision of the Platform to your Organization. To the extent we process that Personal Data solely in order to provide the Platform to your Organization, under the GDPR, to the extent applicable, we will act as a processor (as defined in the GDPR) on behalf of your Organization in respect of that Personal Data; this privacy notice will not apply to the processing of that Personal Data and your Organization will act as a controller (as defined in the GDPR) in respect of that Personal Data and is responsible for obtaining all necessary consents and providing you with all requisite information as required by Applicable Law. To the extent we process your Personal Data for any other lawful business purpose of ours, under the GDPR, to the extent applicable, we will act as a controller of such Personal Data and this privacy notice will apply to the processing of such Personal Data. For clarification but not limitation, information we process for our legitimate business purposes, such as product development, sales and marketing, is not processed solely on behalf of your Organization. Notwithstanding the foregoing, and for the avoidance of doubt, with respect to transfer data processed by Traackr, Inc. solely on behalf of a third-party controller (“Processed Transfer Data”), the provisions of this privacy notice specific to transfer data continue to apply in accordance with the EU-U.S. and/or Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks (as the case may be), but may be limited to working with the respective controller, given our role as a processor.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

20.6.1 To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described in Section 20.5 above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either: (1) calling us at +1(855)-TRAACKR; (2) visiting https://www.traackr.com/data-opt-out; or (3) contacting us in accordance with Section 21. Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your consumer information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. You may make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability no more than twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must: (i) provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected consumer information or an authorized representative; and (ii) describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with consumer information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the consumer information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use consumer information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
20.6.2 We endeavour to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to ninety (90) days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you have an account with us, we may deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your consumer information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. If your requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their repetitive character, we may either charge a reasonable fee, taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or communication or taking the action requested, or refuse to act on the request and notify you of the reason for refusing the request.
20.7 Non-Discrimination: We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights, including, unless permitted by the CCPA, by:
20.7.1 Denying you goods or services.
20.7.2 Charging you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
20.7.3 Providing you a different level or quality of goods or services.

Traackr, Inc.’s accountability for transfer data that it receives under the Privacy Shield and transfers to a third party is outlined in the Privacy Shield Principles. In particular, Traackr, Inc. remains liable under the Privacy Shield Principles if third-party agents that it retains to process transfer data on Traackr, Inc.’s behalf process such transfer data in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, unless Traackr, Inc. can prove that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

22.8 Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation: Except as may be authorized by you, we use your transfer data in a manner that is compatible with and relevant for the purpose for which it was collected. To the extent necessary for these purposes, we take reasonable steps to ensure that transfer data is accurate, complete, current, and reliable for its intended use.
