    • detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.

We may disclose such De-Identified Information publicly and to third parties, or to IntotheBlock Partners under agreement with us.
Your Failure to Provide Personal Data

Your provision of personal Data is required in order to use certain parts of our services and our programs. If you fail to provide such personal Data, you may not be able to access and use our Services and/or our programs, or parts of our Services and/or our programs.

Our Retention of Your Personal Data

We may retain your personal Data for a period of time consistent with the original purpose for collection. For example, we keep your personal Data for no longer than reasonably necessary for your use of our programs and Services and for a reasonable period of time afterward. We also may retain your personal Data during the period of time needed for us to pursue our legitimate business interests, conduct audits, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

We retain your personal Data even after your business relationship with us ends if reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations (including law enforcement requests), meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, maintain security, prevent fraud and abuse, enforce our Terms of Use, or fulfill your request to “unsubscribe” from further messages from us. We will retain de-personalized information after your account has been closed.

Your Rights With Respect to Personal Data

Some data protection laws, including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), corresponding legislation in the United Kingdom, and some U.S. state laws, provide you with certain rights in connection with personal Data you have shared with us. If you are resident in the European Economic Area, you may have the following rights:

  1. The right to be informed. You are entitled to be informed of the use of your Personal Data. This Privacy Policy provides such information to you.
  2. The right of access. You have the right to request a copy of your Personal Data which we hold about you.
  3. The right of correction: You have the right to request correction or changes of your Personal Data if it is found to be inaccurate or out of date.
  4. The right to be forgotten: You have the right to request us, at any time, to delete your Personal Data from our servers and to erase your Personal Data when it is no longer necessary for us to retain such data. Note, however, that deletion of your Personal Data will likely impact your ability to use our services.
  5. The right to object (opt-out): You have the right to opt-out of certain uses of your Personal Data at any time.
  6. The right to data portability: You have the right to a “portable” copy of your Personal Data that you have submitted to us. Generally, this means your right to request that we move, copy or transmit your Personal Data stored on our servers / IT environment to another service provider’s servers / IT environment.
  7. The right to refuse to be subjected to automated decision making, including profiling: You have the right not to be subject to a decision and insist on human intervention if the decision is based on automated processing and produces a legal effect or a similarly significant effect on you.
  8. The right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

In some cases our ability to uphold these rights for you may depend upon our obligations to process personal information for security, safety, fraud prevention reasons, compliance with regulatory or legal requirements, or because processing is necessary to deliver the services you have requested. Where this is the case, we will inform you of specific details in response to your request.

Changing or Deleting Your Information

You may update or correct information about yourself by contacting us.

Our Opt-in/Opt-out Policy

By providing an email address on the IntotheBlock Sites or Services, you agree that we may contact you in the event of a change in this Privacy Policy, to provide you with any Service related notices, or to provide you with information about our events, invitations, or related educational information.

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “opt-in” is generally defined as any affirmative action by a User to submit or receive information, as the case may be.

We currently provide the following opt-out opportunities:

  1. At any time, you can follow a link provided in offers, newsletters or other email messages (except for e-commerce confirmation or service notice emails) received from us or a IntotheBlock Partner to unsubscribe from the service.
  2. At any time, you can contact us to unsubscribe from the service and opt-out of our right per your consent under the terms of this Privacy Policy to share your Personal Data.

How We Protect Personal Data

IntotheBlock maintains administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the User’s Personal Data and information against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.

Children

The Site is not intended for use by children. We do not intentionally gather Personal Data about visitors who are under the age of 16.

Direct Marketing and “Do Not Track” Signals

IntotheBlock does not track its users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your browser may include controls to block and delete cookies, web beacons and similar technologies, to allow you to opt out of data collection through those technologies.

California residents are entitled to contact us to request information about whether we have disclosed Personal Data to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Under the California “Shine the Light” law, California residents may opt-out of our disclosure of Personal Data to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. You may choose to opt-out of the sharing of your Personal Data with third parties for marketing purposes at any time by submitting a request to us. California users may request further information about our compliance with this law by contacting us.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will provide notice on our Site in the event of such changes.
