5. YOUR CHOICES
When you interact with us through the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:
We may periodically obtain both your Personal Data from affiliated entities, our commercial customers, partners and other independent third-party sources and will add it to our database of information. For example, we may receive information about your interaction with advertisements on third party websites, including updated postal addresses and demographic information. Critical Research may cache this data and various aggregations and transformation (charts, graphs, maps, tables, dashboards, etc.) as part of normal operations as covered by our Terms of Service, Subscription Services Agreement, or Master Subscription Agreement, as applicable. In some instances, Critical Research is acting as the data processor on behalf, and pursuant to the instructions, of our commercial customers, who act as the data controller (an entity that determines the purposes and means for processing personal data). If you have any questions about our processing of your Personal Data from such commercial customers, you are advised to contact the applicable customer who has directed us to process the particular information.
Among other third party providers, we partially rely on AWS’ security programs to protect personal information while stored in their respective controlled facilities. We require encryption at rest to be enabled for all storage, multi-factor authentication to be enabled for AWS console access, and CloudTrail configured to log all administrative activity. We maintain layered, rotated backups of the database servers and all Service-related artifacts. For more information on AWS’ security practices and processes, please see https://aws.amazon.com/security/.
Client complies with applicable data protection laws, including applicable security breach notification requirements.
Please keep in mind that no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free, so you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us.
Critical Research is not in the business of selling your information. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
Business Transfers: Critical Research may disclose Personal Data as necessary in connection with the sale or transfer of all or part of its business. As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
Legal Requirements: Critical Research may disclose your Personal Data if required or permitted by law, or when we believe, in the good faith, that such action is necessary to (a) comply with a legal obligation or process, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Critical Research, © act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services, our customers, or the public, or (d) protect against legal liability.
Aggregated Personal Data: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, Critical Research often conducts research on its Customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us, including the total number of visitors to our Sites, the number of visitors to each page of our Sites, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. We may compiled, analyzed, publish, share, distribute, or disclose such information on an aggregate basis or in a de-identified manner that does not allow such data about you to be separated from the aggregate data and identified as originating from you.
Personal Information You Post in Public Areas: When you post a message in a Critical Research forum, chat room, review, or customer feedback, the information you post may be accessible to other users of the Services and the public. If you post Personal Data anywhere on the Services that is accessible to other users or the public, you are advised that such Personal Data can be read, collected, used, or disseminated by others and could be used to send you unsolicited information or otherwise. Accordingly, you assume full responsibility for posting such Personal Data and agree that Critical Research is not responsible in any way for Personal Data you choose to post in these public areas. All such data shall be deemed to be non-confidential and Critical Research shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose, and distribute such Unsolicited Information to others without limitation or attribution.
In addition to the above, we may share Personal Data about you with others to the extent you consent to such sharing.
You can visit the Sites without providing any Personal Data. If you choose not to provide any Personal Data, you may not be able to use certain Services. Critical Research will offer you the opportunity to opt out of your Personal Data being (a) disclosed to third parties, except when disclosure is made to a third party that is acting as an agent to perform task(s) on our behalf and under our instructions, or (b) used for a purpose that is materially different from the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you. Critical Research will provide clear, conspicuous and readily available mechanisms to opt out should applicable circumstances arise.
