Your Agreement to this Privacy Policy
By clicking ‘I Accept,’ or by creating an ANIMATED ADZ account, or by accessing or otherwise using
the ANIMATED ADZ website (“ANIMATED ADZ”) and submitting personal information, you agree to be
bound by the ANIMATED ADZ Privacy Policy (“Policy”) as of the date of initial sign-up
(“Registration Date”) as well as any applicable laws, statutes, and regulations.
Furthermore, you agree that we may collect, use, disclose, store, transmit, and/or process such
personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy or as required by law. If you reside in
a country or territory that restricts the transfer of personal information out of that country or
territory, you agree to the transfer, storage, and processing of your personal information to

Individuals under the age of eighteen (18) are not permitted to use ANIMATED ADZ. Should we
discover that such an individual has sent personal information directly to us, we will use that
information only to respond directly to that individual to inform him/her that we will not continue
to process his/her personal information.

We reserve the right to revise this Privacy Policy at any time by updating this posting without
advance notice to you. Such revisions shall be effective immediately, and we encourage you to check
this Privacy Policy often for any changes.

Links to External Websites

ANIMATED ADZ may link to websites that are operated by third parties. Because such websites are not
operated by the Company, they are not subject to this Privacy Policy. We recommend that you read
the privacy statements that are posted on these third-party websites to understand their procedures
for collecting, using, and disclosing personal information.

What Personal Information We Collect and How

We collect only such personal information as necessary to (i) provide our products or services to
you; (ii) inform you about our products and services; (iii) continue our research in the field; and
(iv) improve ANIMATED ADZ, our products or services, and your experience interacting with us. We
describe below the different ways in which we collect or obtain personal information. Unless
otherwise stated below, the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is our
legitimate business interest in (i) providing ANIMATED ADZ and our products or services to you; or
(ii) considering you as a candidate for employment with us. While the Company may disclose your
personal information for the business purposes set forth below, the Company does not sell personal
information to third parties.

If you visit ANIMATED ADZ: We automatically collect the related Session Data. Session Data is
provided to us by your browser, by third-party integrations on ANIMATED ADZ, and through our log
files, which record your activities while browsing ANIMATED ADZ, such as when you click on a link.
We may record some of this data in one or more cookies that we send to your browser. Furthermore,
we may collect your computer’s internet address and referring website URL.

If you register or create an account: We require that you provide certain personal information
during account registration. We collect your name, email address, contact information, date of
birth, credit card payment information, and may ask you for other optional information that helps
us serve you better.
If you sign up to receive marketing communications: We may collect information on the open rate of
the communications, and whether a specific individual has clicked on a link contained in a
particular communication. Our marketing communications contain instructions on how to opt out of
receiving future marketing communications if you no longer wish to receive them.
If you interact with third parties regarding our Products or Services: We may receive personal
information about you from third parties, such as from customers, websites where we advertise,
business partners, and service providers. Some of this information pertains to a specific
individual; other information can only be linked to an access point or a device.
If you use our online software or mobile application: We may collect certain additional personal
information from you, including your location information. We may also collect personal information
relating to your third-party contacts, including any additional information you choose to add
regarding such contacts, but only if you choose to make use of the app’s feature(s) that require or
utilize this information.
How We Use Personal information
We use personal information in order to provide and enhance the products or services that we offer
as explained below:

To facilitate the use of ANIMATED ADZ: We use Session Data to ease navigation throughout the
ANIMATED ADZ website, to enhance navigation, keep track of login name and password in order to
avoid requesting identity information when the visitor moves from page to page, and in general to
enhance the quality of ANIMATED ADZ and the content provided.
For research purposes: We may use aggregated Session Data to better understand how ANIMATED ADZ is
navigated, how many visitors arrive at specific pages, which pages or content attract more viewers,
the length and frequency of stays at ANIMATED ADZ, the different types of searches of ANIMATED ADZ
content and databases, the types of browsers and computer operating systems that our visitors use,
and the IP addresses from which visitors connect to ANIMATED ADZ, in order to improve ANIMATED ADZ
and enhance our content. We may use IP addresses to gather broad demographic information—
information that is not associated with any individual, and is therefore anonymous. We
also use aggregated Assessment responses, demographic data, and other data to improve our products
and services. We may use location information gathered from our mobile application(s) for
research and development purposes.

For maintenance purposes: We may use IP addresses and Session Data to diagnose problems with our
server and website.
For marketing purposes: We may use email addresses or other contact information to send mailings,
newsletters, and other marketing communications regarding product information and releases. We may
use your telephone number to contact you for marketing purposes. We may use pixel tags to monitor
the open rate of our communications. This helps us understand the effectiveness of the
communications that we send. We give you the ability to opt out of marketing communications at any
To Whom We Disclose Personal information

From time to time, we may disclose personal information to someone other than the individual who
provided the personal information, as further described below:

Customers: The Company provides its customers with the information that they need to communicate
with third-party service providers. As such, each party consents to the exchange of personal
information in order to facilitate said communications.
Service providers: We may engage certain third parties to perform functions and provide services to
us, including, without limitation, customer relationship management, contract management, mass
mailing, hosting and maintenance, database storage and management, business analytics, and direct
marketing campaigns.
Pursuant to written agreements between the Company and these service providers, each of these
service providers only has access to such personal information as necessary to fulfill its
obligation to the Company, is not permitted to use personal information for any purposes other than
those directed by the Company, and is required to act in a manner consistent with the privacy
principles articulated in this Privacy Policy and applicable law.

To Defend or Enforce Our Rights: The Company may use personal information to protect itself, to
respond to a breach of its Terms of Use (or other applicable legal terms), to prevent fraudulent
activity, or where it is necessary to pursue available remedies.
Co-Marketing Partners: We may collaborate with other companies to offer you additional products or
services. We may share personal information that is necessary for these other companies to provide
the products or services that you have requested. This Privacy Policy does not cover the use of
your personal information by these companies. We encourage you to read the relevant company’s
Privacy Policy before requesting any additional products or services.
Mergers & Acquisition; Bankruptcy: If any or all of the Company’s assets are acquired by or merged
with those of another entity, or in the unlikely event of a bankruptcy, we may disclose, share or
transfer some or all of our users’ personal

information to or with this entity in preparation of the transaction, as part of the due diligence,
or after the transaction has been consummated, so that the successor entity can continue providing
our services to our users. If the recipient of the personal information has privacy practices that
do not meet the substance of this Privacy Policy, you will be given the opportunity to exercise
your rights with respect to your personal information.
Law Enforcement; Litigation: Certain federal, state, local, or other government regulations may
require that we disclose information that we hold. In such cases, we will use reasonable efforts to
disclose only the personal information required under applicable law, such as in response to a
facially valid court order, warrant or subpoena issued or made by a court, person or body. We may
use or disclose personal information (a) if we believe in good faith that a law, regulation, rule
or guideline requires it; or (b) to a person who needs the information because of an emergency that
threatens the life, health or security of an identified group or person.
Aggregated data: Other than as stated above, if the Company provides a third- party with personal
information, it will be in the form of aggregated data and used for product development, research,
or statistical analysis. Aggregated data are created from records that are stripped of all personal
identifiers, such as aggregated Assessment responses.
Cookies and Other Technologies
A cookie is a small text file that a website sends to a visitor’s browser and that sends back
information each time the visitor makes a request from the website. A cookie contains a unique
number that identifies the visitor’s browser, but not necessarily the visitor. Cookies can be
accepted, rejected, or identified by configuring a browser’s preferences or settings. Pixel tags or
clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are embedded invisibly on a webpage and
are used to track a visitor’s movements on a website. We use the information gathered by clear gifs
to help us better manage content on ANIMATED ADZ. Cookies and pixel tags are used to help recognize
a returning visitor, and to help customize the visitor’s online experience. Unless a visitor
specifically informs us of his/her identity (e.g., by registering with us), we will not know who
the individual is.
ANIMATED ADZ uses cookies as follows:

• to collect Session Data and other session information;
• to process orders and to store order and shopping cart information;
• to store and hash usernames and passwords so that users do not have to re-enter this information
each time they log in; and
• to collect analytics relating to visitors’ use of ANIMATED ADZ.

How We Retain Personal information

As a general principle, we keep data in personally-identifiable form only for as long as necessary
to achieve the purposes for which it is being processed (subject to our reasonable archive, backup,
and research practices). In practice, that generally means we may retain your personal information
(i) for as long as your account remains active; (ii) for as long as you continue to do business
with us; or
(iii) for as long as we are required or permitted to by applicable law. When your account becomes
inactive (as determined by us in our sole discretion), or if you cease doing business with us, we
may retain your personal information for an additional period for our reasonable archive and backup
purposes. The duration of our retention of your personal information may be set forth more
specifically in our written agreement(s) with you, or our applicable Terms of Use or other legal
terms. At all times, both while you are a registered user and thereafter, we may retain user data
in non-personally-identifiable format for as long as the information is needed for our research,
statistical analysis, product development, or other commercial purposes.
How We Protect Personal information
We follow generally-accepted industry standards to protect personal information, both during
transmission and once we receive it. We use administrative, physical, and technical measures
designed to protect personal information from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, disclosure,
alteration, or destruction.
We use industry-standard technological means to protect personal information while in transit
through the Internet. We use encryption and a comprehensive authentication protocol to provide
reasonable security.
No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is fully secure,
however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal
information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security, and will notify you promptly in the event
of a data breach.
Your Rights
We respect your rights as a data subject. In those instances when we are a data controller, we
provide you with the rights described below. In those instances where we are a data processor, we
will reasonably assist the data controller in facilitating your ability to exercise the rights
Right of access: You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not your personal
information is being processed. If your personal information is being processed, you have the right
to access your personal information and the following information: (a) the purposes of the

personal information concerned; (c) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your
personal information has been or will be disclosed (including international organizations and
recipients in other countries); (d) where possible, the period for which your personal information
will be stored or the criteria used to determine that period; (e) the existence of your right to
request that the data controller rectify or erase your personal information, or restrict processing

right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority; (g) the source of your personal
information (if it was not obtained from you directly); and (h) the existence of any automated
decision-making (including profiling) along with meaningful information about the logic of such

you. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, in some instances you will have the right
to have incomplete personal information completed by providing supplementary written statements to

ongoing processing; (c) you object to the processing and we have no overriding legitimate grounds
for ongoing processing; (d) your personal information has been processed unlawfully; or (e)
your personal information must be erased for compliance with applicable law. In those instances
where you exercise this right against the Company as the data controller, we will
accommodate your request to the extent practicable, and to the extent that it does not otherwise
conflict with any of our other obligations. We reserve the right to retain and use your information
as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our contractual
Right to restriction of processing: You have the right to restrict processing of your personal
information where one of the following applies: (a) you contest the accuracy of your personal

to verify or rectify the accuracy of your personal information; (b) processing of your personal
information is unlawful; (c) processing of your personal information is no longer necessary for the
purpose(s) for which it was collected or processed but you require it for the establishment,
exercise, or defense of legal claims; or (d) you object to the processing, in which case processing
will be restricted for a period allowing the controller to demonstrate whether legitimate grounds
exist that override your objection.

Right to data portability: Where technically feasible, and as related to personal information you
have provided to a data controller based on your consent or a contract with you, you have the right
to receive that personal information in a structured, commonly-used and machine-readable format and
to transmit that personal information to another controller if the processing of that personal
information is performed by automated means.
Right to object to processing: In certain instances, you may have the right to object to processing
of your personal information. Should you so object, the controller of your personal information
must stop processing your personal information unless the controller can demonstrate (i) compelling
legitimate grounds for ongoing processing of your personal information that override your
objection; or (ii) the need for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
Right not to be subject to automated decision-making: In certain instances, you have the right not
to be subject to decisions based solely on automated processing (including profiling) that produces
legal effects concerning you or otherwise significantly affects you. As of the effective date of
this Privacy Policy, we do not engage in any such automated decision-making or profiling.

and you wish to unsubscribe, you may do so by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link provided in the
communication or by managing your marketing communication preferences on ANIMATED ADZ.
Right to block cookies: You have the right to block pixel tags and certain cookies. Most browsers
automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop
accepting cookies, or prompt you before accepting a cookie from the website that you visit. If you
decide not to accept our cookies, you may not be able to access portions of our products or
services. Some cookies are strictly necessary for us to deliver our products or services, and those
cookies cannot be disabled.
Right to non-discrimination: You have the right not to be discriminated against if you choose to
exercise your privacy rights. As such, if you choose to exercise your privacy rights the Company
will not: (i) deny you goods or services; (ii) charge you different prices or rates; (iii) provide
a different level of service; or (iv) suggest that you will be provided with a different level of
service. In some cases, the nature of the product or service you receive may differ depending on
whether (or to what extent) you choose to provide personal information; however, in those cases
there is a direct relationship between the product/service and the personal information you provide
(for example: if you refuse to provide us with your email address, then our products and services
that depend on delivering materials to you via email will not operate as intended).

California Privacy Rights: California law requires that individuals be informed when their personal
information is shared with third parties for these third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Other
than as described in this Privacy Policy, we do not disclose your personal information to third
parties for the direct marketing purposes of these third parties. If our practices change in the
future, we will inform you of the change and will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of
such information sharing for direct purposes of a third party.
If the Company is the controller of your personal information and you wish to exercise any of the
rights described above, please contact us with proof of identity, as provided in the Contact Us
section of ANIMATED ADZ or below. In general, you can expect a response to your request within 30
days. However, if your request is complex or involves a high volume of data, the Company may inform
you that the request could take up to an additional sixty (60) days. In some instances, fees may
apply. If the Company is not the controller of your personal information, we will ask you to direct
your request to the data controller, and the Company will reasonably assist the data controller in
facilitating the request.

Complaints and Disputes

If you have questions or complaints regarding our Privacy Policy or practices, you should first
contact us as indicated the Contact Us section of ANIMATED ADZ or below. However, if our efforts to
resolve your complaint through the Company’s internal dispute resolution mechanisms are
unsatisfactory, you agree to first attempt to settle in good faith the dispute through mediation.
The mediator may propose any appropriate remedy, such as publicity for findings of non- compliance,
payment of compensation for losses incurred as a result of non- compliance, or cessation of
processing of the personal information who has brought the complaint. The mediation will be held
online and all documents and other correspondence will be transmitted through email.
If our efforts to resolve the dispute through mediation are unsuccessful, you agree to binding
arbitration. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered into any court having
jurisdiction over the matter. The arbitration will be held online and all documents and other
correspondence will be transmitted through email.
