Definitions for some of the tracking technologies listed are available below.
- Web Beacons. Website pages may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages and for other related statistics (e.g., recording the popularity of certain content and verifying system and server integrity). We also use these technical methods to analyze the traffic patterns, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of the Services. These technical methods may involve the transmission of Information either directly to us or to a third party authorized by us to collect Information on our behalf. Our Services use retargeting pixels from Google, Facebook and other ad networks. We also use web beacons in HTML emails that we send to determine whether the recipients have opened those emails and/or clicked on links in those emails.

The code is temporarily downloaded to your computer from our web server or a third-party provider, is active only while you are connected to the website and is deactivated or deleted once you leave the website.

Employers. We may share aggregated, de-identified, or pseudonymized Information and analyses with employers in the medical and medical-adjacent industries.

We may use others to help us with our Services.
We use others to help us provide our Services (e.g., maintenance, analysis, audit, payments, fraud detection, marketing, and development). They will have access to your Information as reasonably necessary to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for other purposes.
We may need to share your Information when we believe it is required by law or to help protect the rights and safety of you, us, or others.
It is possible that we will need to disclose Information about you when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce our agreements with you; (3) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations; (4) protect the security or integrity of our Services (such as by sharing with companies facing similar threats); or (5) exercise or protect the rights and safety of Phairify, Inc., our Members, personnel, or others. We attempt to notify Members about legal demands for their Personal Information when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. We may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague, or lack proper authority, but we do not promise to challenge every demand.
Change in Control or Sale
We can also share your Personal Information as part of a sale, merger or change in control, or in preparation for any of these events. Any other entity which buys us, or part of our business, will have the right to continue to use your Information.

Rights to Access and Control Your Personal Information
If required by applicable laws of the state in which you reside, and subject to any permitted exceptions and limitations, we will comply with any verified consumer request you submit with respect to your Personal Information, as that term is defined under any applicable state law. For Personal Information that we have about you, this means you can:
- Delete Information: You can ask us to erase or delete all or some of your Personal Information (e.g., if it is no longer necessary to provide Services to you).
- Change or Correct Information: You can edit some of your Personal Information through your account. You can also ask us to change, update or fix your Information in certain cases, particularly if it is inaccurate.
- Object to, or Limit or Restrict, Use of Information: You can ask us to stop using all or some of your Personal Information (e.g., if we have no legal right to keep using it) or to limit our use of it (e.g., not to share your Personal Information with others, where such sharing constitutes a “sale” under applicable state information privacy laws).
- Right to Access and/or Take Your Information: You can ask us for a copy of your Personal Information and can ask for a copy of Personal Information you provided in machine readable form.
You can learn more about how to make these requests here. You may also contact us using the contact information below, and we will consider your request in accordance with applicable laws.
We keep some of your Information even after you close your account.
If you choose to close your Phairify account, your personal Information will be deleted within thirty (30) days of account closure, except as noted below.
EXERCISING YOUR RIGHTS
To the extent required by applicable law, we will honor your request to exercise the rights described above. You may exercise the rights described above by submitting a verifiable consumer request to us to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. This means that in making a request you may be required to: provide your email and phone number, member information, and/or account sign-up authentication or other Information needed to verify your identity depending on the sensitivity of the Information that is the subject of the request.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with your Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Information relates to you. If we are unable to verify your identity, we reserve the right to deny the request.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
If you choose to use an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete your Information, we may require that you: (1) provide the authorized agent written permission to do so; and (2) verify your own identity directly with us. We may deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf. We may also deny a request from an agent that does not meet the requirements for authorized agents under the applicable privacy law.
Once we have verified your identity (and your authorized agent, as applicable), we will respond to your request as appropriate. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may charge a reasonable fee to comply with your request. If we are unable to complete your request in whole or in part, we will let you know why.
We use good faith efforts to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days after its receipt. If we need more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and the needed extension period in writing.
If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by email.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. If we cannot comply with any portion of a request, the response we provide will also explain why, if applicable. For information portability requests, we will select a commercially reasonable format to provide your Information that is commonly useable and should allow you to transmit the Information from one entity to another entity without hindrance, but we do not guarantee that all formats are useable in all media. 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.
DO NOT SELL MY PERSONAL INFORMATION
Certain state laws, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) may require that we provide you with a means to opt out of the “sale” of your Information, to the extent that Information constitutes Personal Information as that term is defined under the CCPA. The definition of “sale” in the CCPA is broadly defined, and may apply even where we have not received any money in exchange for the Information provided.
To the extent required by applicable laws, we will honor opt-out requests when you submit a “Do Not Sell” request to email@example.com.
We use technical, administrative and physical safeguards to help safeguard your Information, but we cannot guarantee its absolute security. You should assume that no Information transmitted over the Internet or stored or maintained by us or our third-party service providers can be 100% secure. Therefore, although we believe the measures implemented by us reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of Information involved, we do not promise or guarantee, and you should not expect, that your Information or private communications will always remain private or secure. We do not guarantee that your Information will not be misused by third parties. We are not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security features.
We implement security safeguards designed to protect your Information. However, we cannot warrant the security of any Information that you send us. There is no guarantee that Information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
DIRECT MARKETING AND DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
We currently do not share Personal Information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes without your permission.
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the Information collected on our website for online advertising and analytics purposes, however, we do not currently recognize or respond to browser initiated DNT signals.
OUR RIGHT TO CONTACT YOU
By providing Information to us, including your phone number or email address, you agree that we may contact you, or initiate communication with you on behalf of a third-party marketing partner or vendor, by way of text, newsletter, email, or telephone and you agree to us contacting you in these matters concerning our website or related Services or targeted information for which we believe you may be interested, including based on your responses to survey questions and other inquiries.
