1.2 Usage and Device Information.
Similar to other websites, we use tracking technologies to automatically collect certain technical information from your web browser, mobile, or other device when you visit our Site. This data may include, without limitation, your IP address, browser type and language, referring/exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time of your visits. Our collection of this data, described in more detail below, allows us to provide more personalized services to you and to track usage of the Site.
We automatically derive and collect certain data based on your interactions with the Site using cookies and similar technologies (collectively, “Cookies”). Our collection of data through Cookies includes information about your browser and usage patterns, which may include your IP address, browser type, browser language, referring/exit pages and URLs, pages viewed, links clicked, whether you opened an email, and information about the device you use to access the Site. Our collection of this information allows us to improve your user experience in various ways, such as to personalize our display of the Site to you, to “remember” whether or not you are signed in, and to provide better technical support to you.
Please note: If you restrict, disable or block any or all Cookies from your web browser, mobile, or other device, the Site may not operate properly, and you may not have access to services on the Site. We shall not be liable for any impossibility to use the Site or degraded functioning thereof, where such are caused by your settings and choices regarding Cookies.
1.4 Pixels (aka web beacons/web bugs/java script).
We may use Pixels to automatically record certain technical information about your interactions when you visit the Site or otherwise engage with us, to help deliver Cookies on our Site, or count users who have visited the Site.

Pixels are tiny graphics (about the size of a period at the end of a sentence) with unique identifiers used to track certain online actions, movements and related information of Site users. Unlike Cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, Pixels are embedded invisibly on web pages or in HTML-based emails.

You also may provide information to be published or displayed (hereinafter, “posted”) on public areas of the Site or transmitted to other users of the Site or third parties, including, for example, third party websites and services that are integrated into or linked to the Site (collectively, “User Contributions”). Your User Contributions are posted on and transmitted to others at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users of the Site or third parties with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. Such third parties may have their own policies and terms that apply to your User Contributions, and we are not responsible for any third party’s policies or terms. We cannot and do not guarantee that unauthorized persons will not view your User Contributions.

2.2 Account-Related Emails.
When you create an account with us and provide us with your email, we may, subject to applicable law, use your email address to send you updates and news, and contact you on behalf of other users (such as notification alerts from project or network activity). For example, when you register, you will receive a welcome email. If our services are temporarily unavailable, we may also send you an email notice.
Email communications you receive from us will generally provide an unsubscribe link allowing you to opt out of receiving future email or to change your contact preferences. If you have an account with us, you can also change your contact preferences by updating your contact information within your account settings. Please remember that even if you opt out of receiving marketing e-mails, we may still send you important service information related to your accounts and the Services.

Any non-personally identifiable information that is combined with personal information will be treated by us as personal information.
3 OUR INFORMATION SHARING PRACTICES.
We will not sell or rent your personal information to third parties. When we disclose personal information for a business purpose, we enter a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to keep that personal information confidential and use only for performance of the contract, and not for any other purpose. We share your information, including any personal information, in the circumstances described below.
3.1 Disclosures of Personal Information in the Last Twelve Months

We will notify you in the event of a government or legal request for your information.
3.3 Organizational Transitions.
4 YOUR CHOICE AND OPTIONS RELATING TO OUR COLLECTION
You can choose not to provide personal information. You may always decline to provide your personal information to us. If you choose not to provide certain personal information to us, some of your experiences may be affected (e.g., we cannot provide you with our services if you do not register for an account on the Site).
4.1 You May Decline Other Requests.
4.2 Managing Your Information or Deleting Your Account.
You may access, update or delete your account at any time by signing in to the Site and clicking on your account settings page. Any deletion of your account will not affect any contract we have with your employer or other party that has purchased a subscription to our software as a service platform.
4.3 Right to Access Specific Information and Data Portability Right.
You have the right under the CCPA to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past twelve months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:
- • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
- • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.

4.4 Right to Delete.
You have the right under the CCPA to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) or vendor(s) to:
- • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
- • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
- • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
- • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
- • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
- • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
- • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
- • Comply with a legal obligation or legal order.
- • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
4.5 Right to Opt-Out.
If you are 16 years of age or older, you have the right under the CCPA to direct us not to sell your personal information at any time (the “right to opt-out”). We do not sell the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “right to opt-in”) from either the consumer who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a consumer less than 13 years of age. Consumers who opt-in to personal information sales my opt-out of future sales at any time.
To exercise the right to opt-out or right to opt-in, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by sending us an e-mail at email@example.com. Once you make an opt-out request, we will wait at least twelve months before asking you to reauthorize personal information sales. However, you may change your mind and opt back in to personal information sales at any time by sending us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will only use personal information provided in an opt-out request to review and comply with the request.
4.6 Exercising Your Rights.
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by:
Calling us at 800-860-9544
Sending us an e-mail at email@example.com
Submitting your request here: https://preferences.mavenlink.com/privacy
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make such a request for access or data portability twice within a twelve--month period. The verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, and describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to ninety days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response electronically. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the twelve-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
- • Deny you goods or services.
- • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
- • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
- • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.
However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
4.8 Online Tracking Choices.
Most web browsers are initially set up to accept Cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all Cookies or to indicate when a Cookie is being sent. However, some features and services in the Site (particularly those that require sign-in) may not function properly if your Cookies are disabled. Similarly, if you choose to delete session objects from the Site, you may not be able to access and use all or part of the Site or benefit from some or all of the information or features and services offered.
Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have the user’s online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about that browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform.
4.9 Location Information.
You may be able to change the settings on your computer, web browser, or mobile device to prevent it from providing us with any location data, such as your IP address from which we may infer your general location.
5 ACCESSING AND UPDATING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
6 SAFETY AND INFORMATION SECURITY MEASURES.
We use certain physical, managerial, and technical safeguards designed to preserve the security of your information that we maintain in connection with your use of the Site. For example, we encrypt all data with AES-256 / SHA-256 and for password encryption we use secure sockets layer (SSL) and bcrypt, or similar technologies. This, however, does not guarantee that your information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by any breach of our physical, technical or managerial safeguards. In the event that any of your personal information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and will notify you, as appropriate, in accordance with pertinent laws and regulations.
We or our third party hosting providers store personal information in operating environments that are safeguarded against public or unauthorized access and protected from internal access with physical and technical security measures. While these measures are helpful to safeguard your personal information after we receive it, no transmission of data over the internet is 100% secure.
7 EXTERNAL LINKS.
If you choose to leverage 3rd-party service for authentication you consent to share your information, including personal information, to the company providing the non-Mavenlink service. We do not provide personal information to third parties. Non-Mavenlink services are subject to the applicable terms and privacy statement of the company providing the service.
8 THE GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (“GDPR”)
Residents of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) may be entitled to rights under the GDPR. If you qualify, these rights are summarized below.

10 CALIFORNIA SHINE THE LIGHT LAW.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users who are California residents to obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of third parties to whom we have disclosed personal information (if any) for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and you wish to make such a request, please send an e-mail with “California Privacy Rights” in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org.
11 CALIFORNIA MINORS.
While the Site is not intended for anyone under the age of 18, if you are a California resident who is under age 18 and you are unable to remove publicly-available content that you have submitted to us, you may request removal by contacting us at: email@example.com. If you receive a request from an end user who is a California resident under the age of 18 to remove the end user’s content that you provided to us, you may request that we also remove such content by contacting us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. When requesting removal, you must specify the information you want removed and provide us with specific information, such as the URL for each page where the information was entered, so that we can find it. We are not required to remove any content or information that: (1) federal or state law requires us or a third party to maintain; (2) was not posted by you; (3) is anonymized so that you or the end user, if applicable, cannot be identified; (4) you do not follow our instructions for removing or requesting removal; or (5) you received compensation or other consideration for providing the content or information. Removal of your information or end user information from the Site or services does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that information from our systems or the systems of our service providers. We are not required to delete information posted by you; our obligations under California law are satisfied so long as we anonymize the information or render it invisible to other users and the public.
