This information is typically collected through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, web beacons, file information and similar technology (collectively, “tracking technologies”). These tracking technologies cookies collect information about how you use the Site (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on the Site), information about your browser and online usage patterns (e.g., Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, pages viewed, whether you opened an email , links clicked), and information about the device(s) you use to access the Site (e.g., mobile device identifier, mobile carrier, device type, model and manufacturer, mobile device operating system brand and model, and whether you access the Site from multiple devices).

We use or may use the data collected through tracking technologies to secure the Site, improve the Site, to save you time, to provide better technical support, and to track website usage. For example, tracking technologies help us to: (a) remember information so that a user will not have to re-enter it during subsequent visits; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) to identify you across multiple devices; (d) to provide and monitor the effectiveness of our Site; (e) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and usage on our website and our Site; (f) diagnose or fix technology problems; (g) help users efficiently access information after signing in, and (h) otherwise to plan for and enhance our Site.
If you would prefer not to accept cookies, most browsers will allow you to: (i) change your browser settings to notify you when you receive a cookie, which lets you choose whether or not to accept it; (ii) disable existing cookies; or (iii) set your browser to automatically reject cookies. Depending on your mobile device and operating system, you may not be able to delete or block all cookies.
2. SHARING OF YOUR INFORMATION
Marek takes great care to protect the information you provide us. Marek will disclose your personal information when you consent or instruct us to share your information with third parties, or when we have a legitimate business or legal need to share your information. We may also disclose anonymous or aggregate information that does not reasonably identify you as an individual.
With User consent, we may also share information for the following business purposes:
• Third-party vendors and other service providers that perform services on our behalf, as needed to carry out their work for us, which may include providing mailing services, providing payment or accounting service, web hosting, or providing analytic services.
We may also share information with others in an aggregated or otherwise anonymized form that does not reasonably identify you directly as an individual. For example, we may use and share aggregate or anonymized data to study and improve our Site, user functionality and product offerings.
California Users. Marek will not sell or share the personal information of Users unless the User, in the case of Users at least 13 years of age and less than 16 years of age, or the User’s parent or guardian, in the case of Users less than 13 years of age, affirmatively authorizes the sale or sharing of the User’s personal information.
Opt-Out. Users have a right to opt-out of the sale and sharing of their personal information.
3. HOW WE STORE AND PROTECT OUR INFORMATION
Storage and processing: Your information collected through our Site may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Marek or its affiliates or Site providers maintain facilities. If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction.
Keeping information safe: We care about the security of your information and employ physical, administrative, and technological safeguards designed to preserve the integrity and security of all information collected and maintained by our Site. Access to information is limited to those employees who require it to perform their job functions. We use industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to safeguard the account registration process and sign-up information. Other security safeguards include but are not limited to data encryption, firewalls, and physical access controls to building and files. However, no security system is impenetrable and we cannot guarantee the security of our systems 100%. In the event that any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and, where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised and take other steps, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.

5. HOW DOES MAREK PROTECT YOUR DATA AND COMPLY WITH LAWS?
Through the course of providing the Site, Marek collects information about Users on the Site. Personal information collected, along with other information associated with that personal information, is “User Data.” The User Data we collect can include name, mailing and email addresses, and phone number, and may collect additional information associated with the User profile.
This Section describes our practices with regard to User Data.
User Data privacy principles. We are committed to the following principles to protect User Data:
• We do not use or disclose User Data for targeted advertising purposes.
• We do not build a personal profile of a User other than in furtherance of the User’s application for a career on the Site, or as authorized by a User.
• We maintain a comprehensive data security program designed to protect the types of User Data maintained by the Site.
• We will clearly and transparently disclose our data policies and practices to our Users.
Users (or their Parents) can request account deletion at any time by contacting Marek at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may not be able to immediately or completely delete all data in all instances, such as information retained in technical support records, customer Site records, backups, and other similar business records. We will not be required to delete any information which has been de-identified or disassociated with personal identifiers such that the remaining information cannot reasonably be used to identify a particular individual.
6. CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS

For purposes of this section, “personal information” has the meaning provided by the California Online Privacy Protection Act (the “COPPA”), California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”) and the California Privacy Rights Act (the “CPRA”) and does not include information that is publicly available, that is de-identified or aggregated such that it is not capable of being associated with us, or that is excluded from the COPPA’s, CCPA’s or CPRA’s scope. This section does not describe or apply to information relating to our employees, contractors, and other personnel. If you have a question or would like to exercise your California consumer rights to knowledge, access or deletion, please contact email@example.com.

Disclosure of Personal Information. We share and disclose personal information with third parties as described in “Sharing of Your Information.”
Additionally, as is common practice among companies that operate online, we may permit third party advertising networks, social media companies and other third-party businesses collect and disclose personal information (including Internet/Network information, commercial information, and inferences) directly from your browser or device through cookies or tracking technologies when you visit or interact with our Sites online. These third parties use this information for the purposes of serving ads that are more relevant, for ad campaign measurement and analytics, and for fraud detection and reporting and may sell that information to other businesses for advertising and other purposes. By visiting here www.privacyrights.info or www.optout.privacyrights.info, you can opt out from sales of this type of personal information by businesses that participate in the opt out tool.
