Aggregate Information: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual (non-personally identifiable information). We gather certain information about you to enable UTTERNIK’s networking, search, and any rewards features. We also gather certain information about you based upon your use of the Site, where you visit on our Site, and what other sites may have directed you to us.
This information includes, but is not limited to: user gender, year of birth, user’s current city and city of residence, user’s state location and state residence, information about your computer, your computer's IP address, technical information about your computer or device (such as type of device, web browser or operating system), your preferences and settings (time zone, language, privacy preferences, product preferences, etc.), the URL of the last web page you visited before coming to our Site, the buttons, controls and ads you clicked on (if any), how long you used the Site and which services and features you used, and your online or offline status of the Site.

For example, we use Service Partners to facilitate and complete electronic transmission of data between users conducted with the Site, and to assist us in delivering our electronic communications to you and to analyse Aggregate Information.
We will choose Service Partners who adopt and promote strong privacy policies. However, the use of your PII by our Service Partners is governed by the respective privacy policies of those providers and is not subject to our control.

Other than our Service Partners, we do not allow third parties to collect PII about you or your online activities when you use our Site.
Occasionally we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide PII to the appropriate governmental authorities. In such cases, we will disclose PII upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.
Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, you have the right to request deletion of your information from the Application and from Service Providers. UTTERNIK shall not be required to comply with a request to delete your personal information if it is necessary for us to maintain the consumer’s personal information in order to:
i. Complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected, provide a good or service requested by the consumer, or reasonably anticipated within the context of a business’s ongoing business relationship with the consumer, or otherwise perform a contract between the business and the consumer.
ii. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; or prosecute those responsible for that activity.
iii. Debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
iv. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise his or her right of free speech, or exercise another right provided for by law.
v. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act pursuant to Chapter 3.6 (commencing with Section 1546) of Title 12 of Part 2 of the California Penal Code.
vi. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the businesses’ deletion of the information is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of such research, if the consumer has provided informed consent.
vii. To enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with the expectations of the consumer based on the consumer’s relationship with the business.
viii. Comply with a legal obligation.
ix. Otherwise use the consumer’s personal information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which the consumer provided the information.
To exercise this request, you may e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call +1 714 661 5970. An account with UTTERNIK is not required for this request.
Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.120, as a user, you have the right, at any time, to direct any business that sells personal information about the consumer to third parties not to sell the consumer’s personal information. This right may be referred to as the right to opt out.
A business that has received direction from a consumer not to sell the consumer’s personal information is prohibited from selling the consumer’s personal information after its receipt of the consumer’s direction, unless the consumer subsequently provides express authorization for the sale of the consumer’s personal information. We do not sell any users’ personal information. Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.125, we will not discriminate against a consumer because the consumer exercised any of the consumer’s rights under this statute, including, but not limited to, by:
i. Denying goods or services to the consumer.
ii. Charging different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties.
iii. Providing a different level or quality of goods or services to the consumer.
iv. Suggesting that the consumer will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
Nothing in this subdivision prohibits a business from charging a consumer a different price or rate, or from providing a different level or quality of goods or services to the consumer, if that difference is reasonably related to the value provided to the consumer by the consumer’s data.
Moreover, a business may offer financial incentives, including payments to consumers as compensation, for the collection of personal information, the sale of personal information, or the deletion of personal information. A business may also offer a different price, rate, level, or quality of goods or services to the consumer if that price or difference is directly related to the value provided to the consumer by the consumer’s data. A business that offers any of these said financial incentives shall notify consumers of the financial incentives pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.135. A business may enter a consumer into a financial incentive program only if the consumer gives the business prior opt-in consent pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.135 which clearly describes the material terms of the financial incentive program, and which may be revoked by the consumer at any time. Despite these terms, a business may not use financial incentive practices that are unjust, unreasonable, coercive, or usurious in nature. We have not disclosed consumers’ personal information for a business purpose in the preceding 12 months absent the user’s request and authorization to share their personal information with our Service Partners. We do not sell users’ personal information.
We believe you should have the ability to access and edit the PII that you have provided to us and collected by us. You may change any of your PII via the Application at any time by accessing the Application. Pursuant to California Civil Code Sections 1798.110 and 1798.115, up to twice a year, you may request:
i. The categories of personal information we have collected about you.
ii. The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected.
iii. The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.
iv. The categories of third parties with whom we share or shared personal information.
v. The specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you.
We encourage you to promptly update your PII if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, some information, such as past cases and transactions, logs of technical support calls, or other information may not be deleted. In addition, it may be impossible to immediately and completely delete your information without some residual information because of backups, but the information will be deleted.
Upon your request, California Civil Code Section 1798.83, known as the “Shine the Light” law, requires us to provide to you (a) a list of your personal information, if any, which we have disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year, and (b) the names and addresses of those third parties. You may make such a request once per calendar year, and we will provide the information to you free of charge contingent upon verification of the request. Please send any requests made pursuant to this section to us by e-mail by at email@example.com or via telephone at +1 714 661 5970. However, as defined under California Civil Code Section 1798.83, we do not currently share or sell any personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
We may, from time to time, send you e-mails and/or newsletters regarding information or services that we feel may interest you.
