The Personal Information We Collect

When you register to become a User or otherwise utilize the Services, you may submit Personal Information.  Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, your name, phone number and email address.  AmpliFund also may collect Personal Information from you if you choose to opt-in to participate in applications, surveys, or contests.  You are responsible for the quality and accuracy of any information you provide to AmpliFund, and by providing that information you consent to the use and disclosure of that information as described in this Policy.  We do not collect or process “sensitive” personal information from or about you as that term is defined in applicable law. 

 

Use and Disclosure of Personal Information

We may employ third party service providers to provide services on our behalf or to perform services related to administration of the websites or our mobile application (including, without limitation, maintenance, hosting and database management services, web analytics, and payment processing and administration services).  These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to the extent necessary to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use your Personal Information for any other purpose.  We may use the services of a third party to manage and operate interactive chat and messaging functionalities, in which case those third parties will have access to the contents of your chats and messages; by using these functionalities you are consenting to those parties’ access to and use of the contents of your communications and information about those communications.

 

Our Use of Cookies and Analytical Tools

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your computer’s or device’s memory when you visit one of our Sites. Cookies are useful because they help arrange the content and layout of our Sites and allow us to recognize those computers or other devices that have been to our Sites before. Cookies do many different jobs, such as allowing our Sites to remember your preference settings and helping us to enhance the usability and performance of our Sites and your experience using them. Our Sites also may contain electronic images known as web beacons – sometimes called single-pixel gifs – that allow us to count the number of users who have visited specific pages. We may also include web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. The type of cookie or similar technology that may be used on our Sites can be categorized as follows: Strictly Necessary, Performance, Functionality & Profile and Advertising. 

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies are essential for basic functionalities of the Site, and they enable you to move around our Sites and use their features, particularly in connection with information searches and order placement. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet. Examples of strictly necessary cookies are a shopping basket cookie, which is used to remember the products that you wish to purchase when you add products to your shopping basket or proceed to checkout, a login/ authentication cookie which allows and manages your login to the Site and identifies you after logging in for a single session, a session cookie which is required to carry out the data transmission and provide the Site to you, a security cookie that detects repeat failed login attempts or similar abuses of the Sites. These types of cookies are regularly stored only as long as required for their purpose.
  • Performance Cookies. These cookies collect information about how you use our Sites, for example which pages you go to most often and if you get any error messages from certain pages. These cookies collect information that is used to improve how our Sites work. Without these cookies we cannot learn how our Sites are performing and make relevant improvements that could better your browsing experience. Examples of performance cookies that our Sites use include cookies from Google and Adobe Analytics (see further discussion below).
  • Functionality & Profile Cookies. These cookies allow our Sites to store information that you provide, such as preferences, and to store technical information useful for your interactions with our Sites. For instance, they remember your user ID and elements of your user profile. They also ensure that your experience using the Sites is relevant to you. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. These cookies will not be used to track your browsing activity on other websites.  Without these cookies, a website cannot remember choices you previously have made or personalize your browsing experience. For example, we use a cookie to store your language preferences, which allows us to present you with product search results in the correct language, and we use a cookie to store your choice about the appearance of the cookie information banner that we display on our Sites. This cookie will help us remember your choice about the appearance of the cookie information banner when you subsequently visit the same site where you made your choice about the banner and any other AmpliFund sites with the same domain or the same top-level domain. 
  • Advertising Cookies and Similar Technologies. These cookies or similar technologies may be used to deliver advertisements or communications that are more relevant to you and your interests. They may also be used to limit the times you see an advertisement as well as help to measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. These cookies may track your visits to other websites. Without these cookies or other technologies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests.

Setting your cookie preference.  You can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies and you can withdraw your consent at any time by modifying the settings of your browser to reject or disable cookies or by opting out of specific cookies through the opt-out options shared below. If you choose to decline cookies altogether, you may not be able to fully experience the features of the Sites that you visit.

 

Our Use of Web Analytics

We use different analytic tools which serve the purpose of measuring, analyzing and optimizing our marketing measures and provide you with customized advertisements that could be of particular interest to you. In particular, we use the following tools: 

  • Google Analytics uses cookies which enable an analysis of your use of the Sites. The information collected (IP address, browsing activities and other data linked to your usage of the Sites) is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.  You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to the Sites by disabling cookies on your browser. To see how you can opt-out of certain Google features, visit Google Analytics Opt Out Link
  • Google Tag Manager helps to manage website tags through a single interface. The tool itself (implementing the tags) triggers other tags that may themselves collect (personal) data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. 
  • The LinkedIn Insight Tag is a lightweight JavaScript tag that powers conversion tracking, website audiences, and website demographics for LinkedIn ad campaigns. The Insight Tag is incorporated as a standard component of our Site to enable these LinkedIn features.  To see how you can opt-out of certain LinkedIn features, visit Linkedin Opt Out Link.
  • Hotjar provides data regarding macro usage of the website to help us optimize website performance and experience. To see how you can opt-out of data collation, visit Hotjar’s Do Not Track Link.

 

Your Rights and Responsibilities

You are permitted, and hereby agree, to only provide personal information to AmpliFund if such personal information is accurate, reliable, and relevant to our relationship and only to the extent such disclosure will not violate any applicable data protection law, statute, or regulation. 

Promotional Offers from the Company. If you do not wish to have your information used by the Company to promote our own or third parties’ products or services, you can opt-out by emailing connect@amplifund.com.  If we have sent you a promotional email, you may send us a return email asking to be omitted from future email distributions. This opt-out does not apply to information provided to the Company as a result of a product purchase, warranty registration, product service experience or other transactions.

We Do Not Sell Your Personal Information. AmpliFund does not, to the best of our knowledge, sell or rent personal information that we have collected or retain about you to any other third-party for any purpose. We also do not share your information as that term is defined under applicable law. Accordingly, we do not offer individuals the ability to “opt-out” of the selling, sharing or renting of personal information because we do not engage in those practices.

Your Privacy Rights. Applicable privacy laws permit users of the Sites and Services to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Users may have certain data privacy rights, such as the right to be notified about what personal information categories are collected about you, and our intended use and purpose for collecting your personal information. You may have the right to request access to your personal information and, to the extent feasible, request that it be transmitted in certain forms and formats.  You may have the right to request that we (and any applicable service provider) delete your personal information. You have the right not to be subject to discrimination for asserting your rights under applicable law.  If you make, or an authorized agent on your behalf makes, any request related to your personal information, AmpliFund will ascertain your identity to the degree of certainty required under applicable law before addressing your request.  To exercise any of these data privacy rights, please contact us, or have your authorized agent contact us, in accordance with the “Contacting AmpliFund Software” section listed below. In the event you submit, or your authorized agent submits on your behalf, a data request, you (and your authorized agent) hereby acknowledge and agree, under penalty of perjury, that you are (or the authorized agent of) the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request. We will respond to any data requests within the timeframes required by law, and we may charge a fee to facilitate your request where permitted by law.  AmpliFund may require you to match at least three pieces of personal information we have previously collected from you before granting you access or otherwise responding to your request. 

Nevada Privacy Disclaimer. Pursuant to Nevada law, a Nevada “consumer” (as the term is defined therein), may, at any time, submit a verified request through a designated request address to an “operator” directing the operator not to make any sale of his or her personal information that the operator has collected or will collect about the consumer. For clarity purposes, AmpliFund does not sell or exchange your personal information for monetary consideration to a third party for the third party to license or sell the information to additional persons or parties.

California Privacy Rights. Pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended (“CCPA”), California residents have additional data privacy rights, including the following:

  • Right to Know: The right to know about what personal information Unifi collects about you, and our intended use of, and purposes for collecting, your personal information. The personal information that we collect from you, the purposes for which it is used, the source of such personal information, and the parties to whom we share your personal information, among other issues, are set forth in this Privacy Policy (see above).
  • Access: The right to access general categories and/or the specific pieces of personal information we have collected, used, disclosed, or sold about you over the past twelve (12) months, including the sources from which the personal information was collected; the business or commercial purpose for which your personal information was collected, used, disclosed, or sold; and, the third parties with whom we have shared your personal information.
  • Deletion/Erasure: The right to request that we delete/erase your personal information under certain circumstances. 
  • Data Portability: The right to request that Unifi transfers, to the extent technically feasible, personal information in certain forms and formats. 
  • Nondiscrimination: The right not to be subject to discrimination for asserting your rights under the CCPA.

To exercise any of the CCPA’s data privacy rights set forth herein, please contact us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section listed below. If you would prefer, you may designate an authorized agent to submit a CCPA privacy request on your behalf.  An authorized agent must be registered with the California Secretary of State to conduct business in California.  If you (or your authorized agent) makes any request related to your personal information under the CCPA, AmpliFund will ascertain your identity (and the identity of the authorized agent, to the extent applicable) to the degree of certainty required or permitted under the law before addressing your request. Unifi will, to the extent required or permitted by law, require you (or your authorized agent) to verify your request via email or other means and match at least two pieces of personal information we have previously collected from you before granting you access to, or erasing, specific pieces or categories of personal information, or otherwise responding to your request. We may require written documentation that demonstrates a third party is authorized to serve as your agent for the purposes of submitting the requests set forth herein, unless you have provided the authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to California Probate Code §§ 4121 to 4130. None of the CCPA’s rights are absolute and are subject to legal and regulatory exceptions and exemptions. For more information about the CCPA, please see: https://oag.ca.gov/privacy/ccpa.  California residents have the right to opt-out of the sale of their personal information. However, AmpliFund does not sell your personal information to third parties for profit, or monetary or other valuable consideration.

California Shine the Light Law. Under California Civil Code Section 1798.83 (“Shine the Light”), California residents have the right to request in writing from businesses with whom they have an established business relationship: (a) a list of the categories of personal information, as defined under Shine the Light, such as name, email address, and mailing address, and the type of services provided to the customer that a business has disclosed to third parties (including affiliates that are separate legal entities) during the immediately preceding calendar year for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes; and (b) the names and addresses of all such third parties. 

Changing or deleting your information. Your information will be retained indefinitely unless you request its deletion or we decide to delete information that is no longer needed.  You may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in your registration profile by logging into your account and changing the “user preferences” associated with your account.  If you completely delete all such information, your account may be deactivated.  We may retain an archived copy of your records as required by law or for legitimate business purposes. 

 

Security

AmpliFund is concerned with safeguarding your information.  We use a variety of industry-standard measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access.  Our privacy policy and practices are regularly reviewed internally to verify we are in compliance with this policy. 

 

Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of children is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our Site from those we know are under age 13, and no part of our Services are structured to attract anyone under 13.  If the parent or guardian of a child under 13 believes that the child has provided us with any information, the parent or guardian of that child should contact us if they want this information deleted from our files. If AmpliFund obtains knowledge from any source that it has information about a child under 13 in retrievable form in its files, we will delete that information from our existing files.

 

International Transfer

Your information may be transferred to, and maintained on, computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction.  If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to AmpliFund, please be advised that we transfer Personal Information to the United States and process it there.  Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

 

Third Party Sites and Sponsors

You may find advertising or other content on our Services that link to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties.  AmpliFund makes no endorsement of or representations regarding, and may not be deemed responsible for, the information, privacy or other practices of any website that is linked to the Services.  Any advertisers or others with websites linked to the Services may have their own terms and conditions.  You should review any such terms and conditions, including the information, privacy and other policies and practices, prior to accessing or further using such advertisers’ or others’ websites. 

 

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Except as otherwise provided below, we reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time without notice and any such changes shall be effective upon our posting of any such change.  Please (1) review this Privacy Policy from time to time to review the most up-to-date version and (2) that your continued use of the Website subsequent to any such changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes.  We will provide notice to you of, or obtain your consent to, these changes where required by applicable law.
