Clarity does not knowingly collect, use or disclose personal information from children under 13, or equivalent minimum age in the relevant jurisdiction, without verifiable parental consent. However, it is possible that we may inadvertently receive information pertaining to children under 13. If you believe that we have received information about your child that is under the age of 13, please do not hesitate to notify us at email@example.com. When we receive your notification, we will obtain your consent to retain the information or will delete it permanently.

In general, Clarity does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies except to provide the products or services you have requested, when we have your consent as indicated in Section I of this Policy or as required by law, or for our legitimate business purposes as follows:
a. We may provide personal information to trusted partners and vendors who work on behalf of or with Clarity under written confidentiality and similar agreements prohibiting such parties’ further use of the information. Some of these companies may use your personal information to help Clarity communicate with you about offers from Clarity and our business partners. However, these companies do not have any independent right to use or share this information.
b. When you are using our secure online payment pages, your payment is processed by a third-party payment processor, who specializes in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions. If you have any questions regarding secure transactions, please contact the provider specified for your activation directly.
VI. CHOICE AND CONTROL
You can request from Clarity, at any time, information about which personal information Clarity processes about you and the correction or deletion of such personal information. If Clarity uses your personal information to perform a contract with you, you may further request a copy of the personal data that you have provided to Clarity. To make such a request, please contact the email set forth below and specify in detail the information or the activity to which your request relates, the format in which you would like the personal data returned and the recipient, you or your designee. Furthermore, you may contact Clarity if you believe that the personal information that Clarity has is incorrect.
If you are located within the European Union, a country that has adopted GDPR or U.S. states that has provided the rights enumerated and described below, you may benefit from a number of rights with regard to your personal information that we process. These rights are defined and, in some cases limited, by the laws of your jurisdiction. These rights include (a) data portability, including the right to obtain a copy of the personal information you have provided to Clarity; (b) data correction (also known as rectification), including the ability to request correction or amendment of your personal information and (c) data deletion, including the right to have Clarity delete your personal information except for information that we are required to retain. Your right to have your personal information deleted does not apply, however, where the information is necessary:
- for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
- for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by European Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
- for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with points (h) and (i) of Article 9(2) as well as Article 9(3);
- for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) in so far as the right referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or
- for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
You also have the right to have Clarity cease processing your personal information, but that right is dependent upon the following events: (i) you state that the personal information Clarity has about you is incorrect; but Clarity may retain the information for as long as it requires to check the accuracy of the relevant personal information; (ii) there is no legal basis for Clarity’s processing of your personal information and you demand that Clarity restrict your personal information from further processing, (iii) Clarity no longer requires your personal information but you claim that you require such data in order to claim or exercise legal rights or to defend against third party claims; or (iv) in case you object to the processing of your personal information by Clarity it may retain and process the information for as long as it is required to review as to whether Clarity has a prevailing interest or legal obligation in continuing to process your personal information.
You may inquire about the exercise of these rights and, if the laws of your jurisdiction permit, exercise them as permitted by law by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
The only personal information Clarity collects, processes and maintains is business information in which you or an organization on your behalf have communicated with us concerning a business transaction, asked us to perform a service or provide you with a product, or which is otherwise excluded from the definition of “personal information” and most of the requirements with regard to that information within the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The business basis for, and the manner in which, such business information is collected and processed is set forth within this Privacy Notice.
Clarity does not “sell” personal information as the terms “sell” or “sale” are defined within CCPA. Clarity only shares the information it collects with business partners who are its “service providers” and sharing information in this way is not a “sale” as that term is defined in the CCPA. Service providers are business partners who perform business functions for Clarity, as the term “Service Provider” is defined within CCPA. They agree to use information only for these business purposes and not to redisclose it except as permitted or required by law as set out in our contracts with them. The nature of the services provided by these business partners and a description of the categories of these service providers is set forth within this Privacy Notice.
If you have questions regarding collection and sharing of your business information or believe that information that identifies you and has been collected and shared by Clarity is not business information within the meaning of CCPA or is not provided to a service provider as stated above, and you wish to advise us of these beliefs and ask that we not share that information please contact email@example.com.
The security of your personal information is very important to us. We utilize commercially reasonable information security standards to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Clarity supports online security using appropriately secure technology because we want your data to be safe. We bind our employees and data processors to written agreements to observe your privacy and confidentiality rights. Unfortunately, no method of internet transmission is one hundred percent secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its security.
VIII. DURATION AND RETENTION
Clarity will retain your personal information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy, or as required or permitted by law, and then will delete it as required by law. For example, Clarity will retain your information as long as required to comply with applicable tax/revenue laws, cybersecurity and privacy laws, laws and regulations that affect the conduct of our business; to resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, co-operate with law enforcement requests or to meet other legal obligations. We may also retain log files for internal analysis purposes, though we would retain them for only a brief period except in cases where we are legally required to retain them for longer periods, and in cases where they are used for site safety and security or to improve website functionality.
IX. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS
Clarity operates on an international basis. By using our Services you understand and agree that your personal information may be transferred from the European Economic Area (the “EEA,” which comprises the European Union countries plus Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein) to a country that does not have an equivalent level of data protection, such as the United States. When your personal information is transferred from your home country to another country, the laws and regulations that protect your personal information may be different than those in your home country. In particular, if your information is in the US, it may be accessed by government authorities in accordance with US law.
To the extent that Clarity is deemed to transfer your personal information outside the EEA, Clarity relies upon data transfer agreements with Model Contract Clauses, which the European Commission has adopted to provide safeguards for personal information that is transferred outside the EEA. You may obtain a copy of the Model Clauses by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
