Information about Interest-Based Advertisements

We may serve advertisements, and also allow third-party ad networks, including third-party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms, to serve advertisements through our websites or services.

Transfers of Personal Data

Our websites, products and services are generally hosted and operated in the United States (“U.S.”) through Perch and its service providers, and if you do not reside in the U.S., laws in the U.S. may differ from the laws where you reside. In order to transfer your Personal Data to the US, we use standard contractual clauses and security measures to secure your Personal Data a far as possible. By using our websites, products or services, we will process Personal Data about you, regardless of whether provided by you or obtained from a third party and this Personal Data will be transferred to (and processed by) Perch in the U.S., hosted on U.S. servers. In so far as possible, we will obtain your consent to authorize Perch to transfer, store and process your information to and in the U.S., and other countries outside of the UK and the EEA or without adequacy decisions in their favor.

Access and Update

You have the right to request certain information about our collection and use of your Personal Data over the past 12 months and to update the same if it is incorrect. In response, we will provide you with the following information:

  • The categories of Personal Data that we have collected about you.
  • The categories of sources from which that Personal Data was collected.
  • The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling your Personal Data.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we have shared your Personal Data.
  • The specific pieces of Personal Data that we have collected about you.  

If we have disclosed your Personal Data to any third parties for a business purpose over the past 12 months, we will identify the categories of Personal Data shared with each category of third party recipient. If we have sold your Personal Data over the past 12 months, we will identify the categories of Personal Data sold to each category of third party recipient.

Deletion

You have the right to request that we delete the Personal Data that we have collected about you. Under the CCPA, this right is subject to certain exceptions: for example, we may need to retain your Personal Data to provide you with websites, products or services or complete a transaction or other action you have requested. If your deletion request is subject to one of these exceptions, we may deny your deletion request.

How to Exercise Your Rights

To exercise the rights described above, you or your authorized agent must send us a request that (1) provides sufficient information to allow us to verify that you are the person about whom we have collected Personal Data, and (2) describes your request in sufficient detail to allow us to understand, evaluate and respond to it. Each request that meets both of these criteria will be considered a “Valid Request.” We may not respond to requests that do not meet these criteria. We will only use Personal Data provided in a Valid Request to verify your identity and complete your request. You do not need an account to submit a Valid Request.

We will work to respond to your Valid Request within 30 days of receipt. We will not charge you a fee for making a Valid Request unless your Valid Request(s) is excessive, repetitive or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that your Valid Request warrants a fee, we will notify you of the fee and explain that decision before completing your request. You may submit a Valid Request by completing this form or by calling 1-888-914-9661 and using the Perch pin 722925. 

You may also authorize an agent to exercise your rights on your behalf. To do this, you must provide your Authorized Agent with written permission to exercise your rights on your behalf, and we may request a copy of this written permission from your Authorized Agent when they make a request on your behalf.

Personal Data Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In

We will not sell your Personal Data, and have not done so over the last 12 months. To our knowledge, we do not sell the Personal Data of minors under 16 years of age.

We Will Not Discriminate Against You for Exercising Your Rights

We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under applicable data privacy laws, including the CCPA. We will not deny you our products or services, charge you different prices or rates, or provide you a lower quality of products and services if you exercise your rights under the CCPA. However, we may offer different tiers of our websites, products or services as allowed by applicable data privacy laws (including the CCPA) with varying prices, rates or levels of quality of the products or services you receive related to the value of Personal Data that we receive from you.
