HOW WE USE AND DISCLOSE INFORMATION COLLECTED
Generally, we may use and disclose the information that we collect for our business purposes, including operation of the Services, as well as development of new products and services. Such use and disclosure of information may vary with respect to the type of information collected, including: (1) Non-Personal Information; and (2) Personally Identifiable Information.
NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION USE AND DISCLOSURE
We use Non-Personal Information collected through the Services to monitor the performance and effectiveness of the Services, to help personalize your experience, for statistical and research purposes and for improving the functionality of the Services. This information may also be used for administrative purposes including, without limitation, to troubleshoot and resolve problems with the Services and to protect Verily, the Services and our users. We may rely on third-party partners to collect and analyze Non-Personal Information based on our instructions and subject to appropriate privacy and security measures.
Personally Identifiable Information Use and Disclosure
PII collected may be used for a variety of purposes, such as responding to requests for information, creation of user accounts, and processing and fulfillment of orders, as applicable. We may disclose your PII to:
(i) our affiliates in your local jurisdiction, or other locations as necessary or appropriate, to assist us with responding to requests for information, to process and fulfill orders, and to provide other activities contemplated by the Services; and
(ii) business partners or service providers we use to perform site hosting, analytics, and other information technology and support functions on our behalf, and such activities are performed based on our instructions and in compliance with appropriate privacy and security measures.
Where permitted, your PII may also be used to create de-identified data sets.
Disclosures with Your Consent
In addition to the activities described above, we may share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Verily if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to: (1) meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request; (2) enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations; (3) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; or (4) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Verily, our users or the public, as required or permitted by law.
Access to Your Information
We aim to provide you with access to your personal information gathered through the Services. In some circumstances you may have the right to review or request your personal information, or request that it be updated or deleted, by contacting us using the method below under the caption “Contact Us.” However, to the extent permitted by law, we may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, unduly burdensome, risk the privacy of others, or would be very impractical to honor.
To the extent practicable, where we can provide our users with information access and correction through the Services, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to protect information gathered through the Services from accidental or malicious destruction.
Do Not Track Signals
Linked Third-Party Sites
We may provide links to other third-party websites through the Services solely as a convenience to you. However, such linking does not mean, and should not be interpreted to mean, that ESS endorses, is affiliated with or makes any representations concerning such third-party websites. ESS neither reviews, nor controls, nor is responsible for these third-party sites or any content therein. If you decide to access any of the third-party sites linked through the Services, you do so entirely at your own risk. ESS shall not be liable for any consequences arising from use of any third-party websites to which the Services link.
We work hard to prevent unauthorized accessing, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of the information we hold. We have data security safeguards in place, and we regularly review our security practices to proactively guard against unauthorized access.
We strive to maintain the security of your information by using appropriate measures designed to protect our systems. However, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that is disclosed online. Consequently, we do not insure or warrant the security of any information you transmit, and you do so at your own risk.
DATA RETENTION AND DELETION
For some data, you can request deletion whenever you like, some data is deleted automatically, and some data we retain for longer periods of time when necessary. When data is deleted, we follow internal policies and procedures to make sure that your data is safely and completely removed from our servers or retained only in anonymized form.
Data That Expires After a Specific Period of Time: In some cases, we store data for a predetermined period of time. For each type of data, we set retention timeframes based on the reason for its collection. Where applicable, we also take steps to anonymize certain data within set time periods.
Information Retained for Extended Time Periods for Limited Purposes: Sometimes business and legal requirements oblige us to retain certain information, for specific purposes, for an extended period of time. Reasons we might retain some data for longer periods of time include:
Security, fraud & abuse prevention
Complying with legal or regulatory requirements
Ensuring the continuity of our Services
Direct communications with ESS
We try to ensure that our Services protect information from accidental or malicious deletion. Because of this, there may be delays between when something is deleted and when copies are deleted from our active and backup systems. For our active systems, this process generally takes around one month from the time of deletion; however, data can remain on backup systems for up to six months.
CROSS-BORDER TRANSFER OF INFORMATION
If you have an inquiry regarding our privacy practices, we encourage you to contact us. ESS is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC). You may also file a complaint free of charge with your local data protection authority and we will work with them to resolve your complaint.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the information gathered through the Services, or would like to submit a request related to your information (including requests to review, update or delete your information), please let us know by emailing us at email@example.com.
