PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy was last updated on December 10, 2018.

Our Policy:

Welcome to the web site (the “Site”) and/or mobile application (the “Application”) of Polis, Inc. (“Company”, “we”, “us” and/or “our”). This Application is operated by us and we are providing information about our company, mobile application, and our general door-to-door outreach tools (the Site and Application, collectively, the “Services”) to our Service visitors (“you”, “your”). This Privacy Policy sets forth the Company’s policy with respect to information including personally identifiable data (“Personal Data”) and other information that is collected from visitors to the Application and Services.

Information We Collect:

When you interact with us through the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:

Personal Data That You Provide Through the Services: We may collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you contact us with inquiries, sign up for our listserv or use certain Services.

By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data to the Services, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of the Company and the authorized third parties referred to herein located in the United States.

Other Information:

Non-Identifiable Data: When you interact with the Company through the Services, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. The Company may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by the Company affiliates, agents or service providers. The Services may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.

In operating the Services, we may use a technology called “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Services gives to your browser when you access the Services. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Services and help us analyze Services usage more accurately. For instance, our Site may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Services without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Site. In all cases in which we use cookies, we will not collect Personal Data except with your permission. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Service features.

Aggregated Personal Data: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, the Company may conduct research on our customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and the Company may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. The Company may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

Do Not Track: We may (and we may allow third party service providers to) use cookies or similar technologies to collect information about your browsing activities over time and across different websites following your use of our Site. For example, we may use a third party analytics service to help us analyze how users use the Site and enhance your experience when you use the Site. Our Site currently does not respond to “Do Not Track” (DNT) signals and operates as described in this Privacy Policy, whether or not a DNT signal is received. If we do so in the future, we will describe how we do so in this Privacy Policy.

Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information:

The Company uses the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we may use your Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by email, we will use the Personal Data you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. The Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates (the “Related Companies”) may also use your Personal Data and other personally non-identifiable information collected through the Services to help us improve the content and functionality of the Services, to better understand our users and to improve the Services. The Company and its affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each marketing communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future marketing communications. In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future marketing communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us as indicated below.

If the Company intends on using any Personal Data in any manner that is not consistent with this Privacy Policy, you will be informed of such anticipated use prior to or at the time at which the Personal Data is collected.

Business Transactions: If we transfer ownership or control of any portion of Company or the Services to a third party, whether or not in the context of an acquisition, merger, or reorganization, we may transfer your Personal Data and other information to that third party, provided that the use of your Personal Data by that third party remains subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Choice and Opt-out:

We may give you the opportunity to “opt-out” of having your Personal Data used or shared for certain purposes otherwise permitted by this Privacy Policy. For example, we may provide you with a choice whether to receive certain messages from us, whether through the Services or through other means.

If you no longer wish to receive certain messages from us or to have your Personal Data shared in the manner otherwise permitted by this Privacy Policy, you may seek to opt- out of receiving those messages or having your Personal Data shared in that manner. In some cases, opting out of receiving messages or having your Personal Data shared will not affect your ability to use the Services we provide through the Services. However, some messages are necessary to the use and operation of the Services.

Likewise, some sharing of Personal Data is necessary to provide you with the Services. If you wish to opt-out of receiving these messages or of sharing your Personal Data in this manner, we may be required to limit or cancel your access to the Services.

All opt-out requests can be made by contacting the Company as described below. Note that it may take up to [__] business days to remove contact information from our lists, so messages from us may continue for a time after a removal request is made.

We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies.
