Your privacy is critically important to us. Confusion to Clarity has a few fundamental principles:
~ We are thoughtful about the personal information we ask you to provide and the personal information that we collect about you through the operation of our services.
~ We store personal information for only as long as we have a reason to keep it.
~ We aim for full transparency on how we gather, use, and share your personal information.
What This Policy Covers
Information We Collect
We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so– for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better.
We collect information in two ways: when you provide information to us, and automatically through operating our Services. Let’s go over the information that we collect.
Information You Provide to Us
It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information. Here are some examples:
Communications With Us: You provide us information when you respond to surveys, communicate with us, or comment on a post.
Submitting your Email: When you download free offers or subscribe to the email list, you give us your information.
Information We Collect Automatically
We also collect some information automatically:
Usage Information: We collect information about your usage of our Services. For example, we collect information about the actions that users perform on our site–in other words, who did what, when and to what thing on a site, along with information about your device (e.g., screen size, name of cellular network, and mobile device manufacturer). We use this information to, for example, provide our Services to you, as well as get insights on how people use our Services, so we can make our Services better.
Location Information: We may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our Services from certain geographic regions.
How And Why We Use Information
Purposes for Using Information
We use information about you as mentioned above and for the purposes listed below:
To provide our Services;
To monitor and analyze trends and better understand how users interact with our Services, which helps us improve our Services and make them easier to use;
To monitor and prevent any problems with our Services, protect the security of our Services, to detect and prevent fraudulent transactions and other illegal activities;
To communicate with you, for example through an email, about offers and promotions offered by Confusion to Clarity, solicit your feedback, or keep you up to date on Confusion to Clarity and our products; and
To personalize your experience using our Services and provide content recommendations.
Legal Bases for Collecting and Using Information
A note here for those in the European Union about our legal grounds for processing information about you under EU data protection laws, which is that our use of your information is based on the grounds that:
(1) We have a legitimate interest in using your information– for example, to provide and update our Services, to improve our Services so that we can offer you an even better user experience, to safeguard our Services, to communicate with you, to better understand user retention and attrition, to monitor and prevent any problems with our Services, and to personalize your experience; or
(2) You have given us your consent– for example before we place certain cookies on your device and access and analyze them later on.
How We Share Information
We never sell our users’ private personal information. We share information about you in the limited circumstances spelled out below and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy:
Third Party Vendors: We use third-party services for emailing, commenting and to build our community on social media. We also use the third-party services to measure the number of visitors to our website, to interact with visitors on the site, and to make our website more useful to visitors. We may share information about you with third party vendors who need to know information about you to provide their services to us. We only use vendors with privacy commitments. Any personal information collected by the third-party website will not be stored or transmitted by Confusion to Clarity. Confusion to Clarity has no control over or access to specific login information or any other sensitive personal information provided to third-party websites.
To Protect Rights, Property, and Others: We may disclose information about you when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Confusion to Clarity, third parties, or the public at large. For example, if we have a good faith belief that there is an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury, we may disclose information related to the emergency without delay.
With Your Consent: We may share and disclose information with your consent or at your direction.
Published Support Requests: If you send us a request (for example, via a support email or one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish that request in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
Information Shared Publicly
Information that you choose to make public is–you guessed it–disclosed publicly. That means, of course, that information like your public profile, comments, or other content that you make public on this website. Please be aware of this when commenting!
How Long We Keep Information
We generally discard information about you when we no longer need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it– which are described in the section above on How and Why We Use Information– and we are not legally required to continue to keep it.
While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.
You have several choices available when it comes to information about you:
Limit the Information that You Provide: Please keep in mind that if you do not provide this information, certain features of our Services– for example, commenting– may not be accessible.
Opt-Out of Electronic Communications: You may opt out of receiving promotional messages from us. Just follow the instructions in those messages. If you opt out of promotional messages, we may still send you other messages, like legal notices.
Set Your Browser to Reject Cookies: If you do not wish to have cookies stored on your machine, you have the option to turn cookies off in your browser. However, keep in mind that turning off cookies may impact how this website functions. Disabling browser cookies will also impact how other websites you visit store browser cookies as well.
If you are located in certain countries, including those that fall under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (AKA the “GDPR”), data protection laws give you rights with respect to your personal data, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the rights to:
Ask for a list of personal information we have about you, if any;
Request correction or deletion of your personal data;
Object to our use and processing of your personal data;
Request that we limit our use and processing of your personal data.
