  • Where it is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. We have a legitimate interest in processing your Personal Information, for example, for the following purposes:

    • Product and Service development, management, delivery, and enhancement;

    • Fraud detection and prevention;

    • Network and system security;

    • General corporate operations;

    • Compliance with applicable foreign laws; and

    • Communications regarding your purchases.

  • Where we have your consent to do so, such as if you fill out a survey and provide us with protected categories of Personal Information as described in this Policy. Depending on where you live, you may have the right to withdraw consent, at any time, by contacting us at the address stated in the “Contact Us” section of this Policy, or directly through the Services. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing conducted prior to then, nor will it affect any processing based on lawful grounds other than consent.

  • As necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, and in order to take steps (at your request) prior to entering into such a contract.

If you have questions about the legal basis on which we collect and use your Personal Information, please contact us at the address stated in the “Contact Us” section of this Policy, or directly through the Services.

6. How we Disclose, Share, and Transfer Personal Information

We may disclose, share, or transfer your personal information to others in the circumstances described below. 

Disclosures to Service Providers

We may disclose Personal Information and other information about you to companies, agents, contractors, service providers or others engaged to perform functions on our behalf (such as providing data storage, hosting our website, conducting audits and performing web analytics). We may also disclose your Personal Information to others to market Captiv8 products and services to you (for example, to send you messages concerning new Captiv8 features or products or Captiv8 special offers), and to perform the Service (for example by sharing information with Social Sites). 

Disclosures as Allowed or Required by Law

We may also disclose your Personal Information to third parties, to (a) enforce or apply the terms and conditions of the Service, including investigations of potential violations thereof, (b) comply with legal or regulatory requirements or a governmental request, (c) protect the rights, property or safety of Captiv8, other users or other third parties, (d) to any authority, such as a police department or regulatory authority, or (e) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical problems that may arise. 

Disclosures of Non-Personal Information

We may also disclose Non-Personal Information to our clients, developers, business partners, merchants, advertisers, investors, potential buyers and other third parties for any reason at our sole discretion. 

Disclosures for Other Business Purposes

Captiv8 reserves the right to transfer information (including your Personal Information and Non-Personal Information) to a third party in the event of (a) a reorganization, spin-out, sale, merger, or transfer of some or all of the assets of our company, or (b) in the unlikely event of a bankruptcy, liquidation or receivership of our business.

Disclosure of Profiles and Public Information

When you use our Service, you agree that we may publish information about you, including Personal Information that is visible to the general public, as well as to users who subscribe to our Services. 

International Data Transfers

Information that is collected from or about you may be transferred to other countries, territories, or regions that may not provide levels of protection for your Personal Information equivalent to those provided where you live. By using our Services, you expressly consent to such transfers. The ways in which we protect your information that is transferred internationally may depend on where you live; however, in general we use contractual or other means to ensure a comparable level of protection for the data. We have additionally executed Standard Contractual Clauses between us and any entities with whom we may share Personal Information of data subjects located in the EEA, UK or Switzerland.

Information about the Sale and Sharing of Personal Information

Because of the broad definition of “sale” and “sharing” under CCPA, some information that we share with third parties may constitute a “sale” or “sharing” of your information.  For instance, we may share identifiers, such as cookies and the advertising identifier associated with your mobile or internet-connected device with our advertising partners, and those partners use and share those identifiers to show advertisements that are targeted to your interests.

To opt-out of the sale or sharing of your personal information, click on the “Your Privacy Rights” link on the home page of our relevant website, mobile and online application, or other service, or email us at  Please note that, when you use these tools on our websites, you will need to renew your choices if you clear your cookies or use a new browser or device. 

Captiv8 does not have actual knowledge of any “sales” of Personal Information of minors under the age of sixteen.

7. Retention of Personal Information

We will retain your Personal Information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy or as reasonably necessary to provide, promote and support the Services. We will retain and use your Personal Information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies. Personal information that is no longer required by law or necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected will be destroyed, erased, or anonymized. 

We will also retain Non-Personal Information for internal analysis purposes. Non-Personal Information is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our Services, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer time periods. 

8. Children

We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children less than 13 years of age. Nor do we authorize children less than 13 years of age to use the Service. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected Personal Information from a child under the age of 13, upon receipt of notice from the child or the child’s parent or guardian, we will use reasonable efforts to delete that child’s Personal Information from our systems.

9. Information Security

We utilize a number of information security measures to safeguard your Personal Information. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet and no method of data storage can be guaranteed to be secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we do not guarantee its security.
