  1. How We Disclose Personal Information.

We do not sell, lease, rent or otherwise disclose the Personal Information collected from our Site to third parties unless otherwise stated below or with your consent.

5.1. Our Third Party Providers. We transfer Personal Information to our third party service providers to perform tasks on our behalf and to assist us in providing our Site. We use commercially reasonable efforts to only engage or interact with third party service providers and partners that post a privacy policy governing their processing of Personal Information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we will comply with applicable laws regarding Personal Information transfers as well as any transfer restriction that is specified in an agreement between CM and a customer.

5.2. Business Partners. From time to time, we may partner with other companies to jointly offer products or services. If you purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly-offered product or service from us, we may share Personal Information collected in connection with your purchase or expression of interest with our joint promotion partner(s). We do not control our business partners’ use of Personal Information we collect, and their use of the information will be in accordance with their own privacy policies.

5.3. In the Event of Merger, Sale, or Change of Control. We may transfer or assign this Privacy Policy and any Personal Information to a third party entity that acquires or is merged with us as part of a merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.

5.4. Other Disclosures. We may disclose Personal Information about you if we have a good faith belief that disclosure of such information is helpful or reasonably necessary to: (i) comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request; (ii) enforce our terms of use, including investigations of potential violations thereof; (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud or security issues; or (iv) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of CM, our users, or the public.

  1. Retention of Personal Information.

We reserve the right to retain any Personal Information as long as the Personal Information are needed to: (i) fulfill the purposes that are described in Section 4 (The Purposes For Which We Use Personal Information), and (ii) comply with applicable law.

  1. Opting Out of Promotional Emails.

You may choose not to receive future promotional or advertising emails from us by selecting an unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email that you receive from us, or by responding to the emails directly and requesting removal if such a link is not available. Additionally, you may send a request specifying your communications preferences to hello@contentmatterz.com. Customers cannot opt out of receiving transactional emails related to their account with us or our services. Please note that even if you opt out of receiving the foregoing emails, we may still send you a response to any "Contact Us" request as well as administrative, maintenance and operational emails (for example, in connection with a password reset request).

  1. International Users; Other Rights.

Please note that our Site is directed towards users who reside in the United States. By using our Site, you consent to the collection, storage, processing, and transfer of Personal Information in and to the United States, or other countries and territories, pursuant to the laws of the United States. While some of these countries may not offer the same level of privacy protection as your own, we commit to uphold the privacy protections as explained in this Privacy Policy.  

Depending on where you live, you may have additional rights under applicable law, such as the rights to export or object to or restrict the processing of Personal Information, and the right to erasure of Personal Information. To exercise such rights, please contact us and we will promptly respond in accordance with applicable law.  

You may also have a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority or other regulatory agency if you believe that we have violated any of the rights concerning Personal Information.  We encourage you to first reach out to us, so we have an opportunity to address your concerns directly before you do so.

  1. Data Security.

The security of Personal Information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

  1. Children's Privacy.

Our Site is not intended for children under the age of 18. Accordingly, we do not intend to collect Personal Information from anyone we know to be under 18 years of age.

  1. How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals.

CM does not track Site users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising. Accordingly, we do not currently respond or take any action with respect to web browser "do not track" signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of Personal Information about an individual consumer's online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services.

  1. Your California Privacy Rights.

If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request information regarding the disclosure of Personal Information about you by CM to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.
