INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you use our Services, you may provide Lattus with two main types of information: (1) personally identifiable information that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis, and (2) general user information that does not contain personally identifiable information, which is collected on an aggregate basis as you browse and use our Services. We collect information from you when you (a) use and/or access our Services, (b) register an account and/or subscribe to Lattus, (c) open and/or respond to our emails, (d) contact Lattus, and/or (e) visit any page online that displays our content.
Plain English: We collect information that identifies who you are, and information that is general without an indication of who you are.
Personally Identifiable Information You Choose to Provide
We may ask for certain personal information from you for the purpose of providing to you content and/or services that you request. We collect personal information such as your: (i) contact information (including name, email and address); (ii) username; (iii) contact information of friends or others you invite; (iv) location information (such as geographic location of the device you are using) and (v) preferences, questions submitted, and behavior (such as record of responses and questions asked). Once you register, you have opted in to receive electronic communications from us. We may also provide you with the opportunity to participate in surveys through our Services. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information. Participation in surveys is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether to disclose such information.
Plain English: We collect information that could allow someone to know who you are, including your contact information name, and other information listed in the paragraph above.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information We Collect
Plain English: We use technology called Cookies so we can recognize you when you return to our site so we can better offer you our Services.
Device Data: We use device data, which is information concerning a device you use to access, use, and/or interact with the Services, such as operating system type and/or mobile device model, browser type, domain, and other system settings, the language your system uses and the country and time zone of your device, geo-location, unique device identifier and/or other device identifier, mobile phone carrier identification, and device software platform and firmware information.
Plain English: We may gather information from your computer, smart phone, or other device that you use while using our Services.
By enabling these Google Analytics Display features, we are required to notify our visitors by disclosing the use of these features and that we and third-party vendors use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) or other first-party identifiers, and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to gather data about your activities on our Services. Among other uses, this allows us to contact you if you begin to fill out our check-out form but abandon it before completion with an email reminding you to complete your order. The “Remarketing” feature allows us to reach people who previously visited our Services and match the right audience with the right advertising message.
You may opt out of the automated collection of information by third-party ad networks for the purpose of delivering advertisements tailored to your interests, by visiting the consumer opt-out page for the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising at https://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and edit or opt-out your Google Display Network ads’ preferences at https://www.google.com/ads/preferences/. Because those opt-out and preference control pages are specific to the individual browser used to visit it, and because that page is not operated by Lattus, we are unable to perform the opt-outs on your behalf.
Aggregate: We may collect non-identifying and statistical information about the use of our Services, such as how many visitors visit a specific page, how long they stay on that page and which links, if any, they click on. This information represents a generic overview of our users, including their collective habits. Information collected in the aggregate is not associated with you as an individual.
Plain English: We collect non-identifiable information such as how long you were on our Services so we can learn more about how you and other users experience our Services.
Plain English: We use other third-party websites to make our services better, and those third parties may collect information on you, but they do so anonymously. However, those third parties may access information such as the Cookies we collect, and they may use that information similar to us.
HOW WE USE THAT INFORMATION
Plain English: We use the information we collect as listed in the paragraph in several ways, such as to improve the Services or contact you.
The information collected in the aggregate enables Lattus to better understand your use of the Services and to enhance your enjoyment. If you use the Services, you agree to receive certain communications from us including but not limited to the following:
Customer Service. Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we will communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, as you may elect.
Plain English: We may use information we collect to help resolve issues you may experience.
Parties with whom we may share your information:
Plain English: We do not sell your personal information and only share it with people or service providers that work with us to help us provide you with our Services.
Plain English: We will not give anyone your personal information unless it is needed to investigate internal complaints regarding the Services, for legal action, governmental assistance, exercising or protecting your rights, and/or protecting the security and use of the Services.
What happens in the event of a change of control:
If we sell or otherwise transfer part or all of Lattus or our assets to another organization (e.g., in the course of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, liquidation, etc.), your information such as name and email address, user content and/or any other information collected through the Services may be among the items sold and/or transferred.
Plain English: If we sell the company or Services, your personal information may be included in the sale to the new owner.
YOUR INFORMATION CHOICES
We respect your privacy and give you an opportunity to opt out of receiving announcements of certain information. Although we think that you benefit from a more personalized experience when we know more about you and what you like, you can limit the information you provide to Lattus, and you can limit the communications that Lattus sends to you. If you visit our Services and/or volunteer personally identifiable information, you can opt out of receiving notifications, and you may review, modify, update, and/or delete such personally identifiable information by contacting and/or by changing your preferences on the Service. Please be aware that even after your request for a change is processed, Lattus may, for a time, retain residual information about you in its backup and/or archival copies of its database. Please be aware that we may still email you non-commercial emails related to your account and your transactions through our Services. Following termination and/or deactivation of your account, Lattus may retain information (including without limitation your profile information) for a commercially reasonable time for backup, archival, and/or audit purposes. In some cases, if you choose not to provide Lattus with requested information, you may not be able to use and/or access all of our Services.
Plain English: You can elect to stop giving us your personal information or review, modify or delete your personal information. We may keep some personal information in backup/archival copies of our database, and we may maintain your personal information for a period of time for backup, archival, or audits. You may still receive communications about your account.
