We may require additional information from you to allow us to confirm your identity. Please note that we will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Additional information about privacy rights is set forth below.

2. Tracking Technology Choices

Cookies and Pixels. Most browsers accept cookies by default. You can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to decline or delete cookies. If you use multiple browsers on your device, you will need to instruct each browser separately. Your ability to limit cookies is subject to your browser settings and limitations.

Do Not Track. Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit. Note, however, there is no industry consensus as to what site and app operators should do with regard to these signals. Accordingly, we do not monitor or take action with respect to “Do Not Track” signals or other mechanisms. For more information on “Do Not Track,” visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.

Please be aware that if you disable or remove tracking technologies, some parts of the Site or Service may not function correctly.

3. Communications

If you have visited or used our Site, App, or Service, we may send you communications based on your consent or other legitimate interests. You may of course opt out of non-essential communications, but may continue to receive essential communications, such as communications related to the security or integrity of the Site, App, or Services. You can opt-out of receiving promotional emails from us at any time by following the instructions as provided in emails to click on the unsubscribe link, or emailing us at privacy@sesame3.com with the word UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject field of the email. Please note that you cannot opt-out of certain non-promotional emails, such as those about your account, transactions, servicing, or Sesame3’s ongoing business relations with you.

We will never share your information with a third party for such third party’s marketing purposes unless you have specifically consented to us doing so.

Your Privacy Rights

You may contact us at privacy@sesame3.com to exercise any of the rights outlined below. To ensure the privacy and protection of individuals, we are required to verify your identity (or that of your authorized agent) or otherwise authenticate your request(s), which we will do in accordance with the applicable privacy regulations. We may request specific information from you to confirm your identity, and in some circumstances, we may charge a reasonable fee for access to your information (if appropriate and permissible).

State Privacy Rights

While not all U.S. states afford rights like those afforded by California or other states that have passed data privacy legislation, we honor requests from any users that wish to exercise the rights enumerated in this section and in the European Privacy Rights section below, and we will not discriminate against any user who exercises these rights.

Right to access/know your information. You may request from us a list of (i) the personal information that we have collected about you, and (ii) the categories of third parties to whom we have disclosed your personal information. You have the right to up to two (2) access requests each twelve (12) months.

Right to delete your information. You may request, at any time, that we delete your information and direct our service providers to delete your information from their records. We will honor such requests unless we are required by federal or state law to preserve the information.

Please note that we are not required to grant a request to access/know or a request to delete with respect to personal information obtained from you in your role as an employee, owner, director, officer or contractor of a company and within the context of Sesame3 providing its services to such company.

Sales of Personal Information

Sesame3 does not sell your personal information. For purposes of this section, we use the term ‘sell’ as it is defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”).

European Privacy Rights

We do not expressly provide the Site, App, or Service to users that reside in the European Economic Area, the UK, or Switzerland. If you are a resident of these jurisdictions, please do not use the Site, App, or Service. That notwithstanding, this policy provides information about the rights afforded to users under regulations within the foregoing jurisdictions, such as under the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) or similar regulations. Those rights include:

If you believe that our processing of your information is inconsistent with your data protection rights, please contact us at privacy@sesame3.com so we can address your concerns. In the case, we have not adequately addressed your concerns, under GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection supervisory authority of your country.

Users of Our Services Outside the United States

Sesame3 is a U.S.-based company. If you are a non-U.S. resident and provide us with your personal information, you acknowledge and agree that your personal information may be transferred to and be processed in the United States, where the laws regarding processing of personal information may be less stringent than the laws in your country. By providing your information, you consent to such transfer and processing.

Children’s Privacy

Our Site and Service is not intended for children under 13 years of age. No one under age 13 may provide any information to or on the Site, App, or Service. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information on or through the Site, App, or Service. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at privacy@sesame3.com.

Data Security

We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to us. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site, App, or Service.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to revise this Privacy Policy from time to time in our sole discretion. Any changes will be effective immediately upon posting of the revised Privacy Policy and updating the “last modified” date on the top of this Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Site, App, or Service indicates your consent to the Privacy Policy then posted. If the changes are material, we will provide you additional notice to you through the Site, App, or Service (if you have an account with us) or through email (if we have your current valid email address). You are responsible for ensuring you maintain up-to-date contact information in your account with us, and for periodically visiting our Site, App, or Service and this Privacy Policy to check for any changes.
