These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the Site or Services easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services, and technologies; and displaying content and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences.
We also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, information updates, billing information, information on technical service issues, and security announcements. We may also contact you to inform you of other products or services available from Hoffman and its partners or affiliates.
Personal information collected on the Site and Platform may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Hoffman or its licensors, service providers, affiliates, subsidiaries, or agents maintain facilities, and by using the Site or Platform, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.
In some cases, we use third parties to collect, use, analyze, and otherwise process information, including personal information, on our behalf. This includes our use of certain products and services provided by third parties for the purposes of enabling certain features on the Site and Platform. For example, the information submitted through Contact Forms is processed by a third-party provider.

To facilitate purchases of Services, we may use third party services in connection with invoicing and payment processing.
Service providers will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
By submitting any information through the Site or Platform, you consent to us sharing your personal information with any third party that provides us with the products or services used to process information, or otherwise processes information on our behalf.

California Notice of Collection: We or our service providers have collected the following categories of information enumerated in the CA Privacy Laws in connection with the Site or Services:
We do not generally sell information as the term “sell” is traditionally understood. However, to the extent “sale” under the CA Privacy Laws would be interpreted to include any of the activities described in the “Sharing of information” section above, we will comply with applicable law as to such activity.
Right to Know and Delete
If you are a California resident, you have the right to delete Personal Information we have collected about you and you have the right to know certain information about our data practices. In particular, you have the right to request the following:
To exercise any of these rights, please submit a request to us at email@example.com. In the request, please specify which right you are seeking to exercise and the scope of the request. We will confirm receipt of your request within ten (10) days. We may require specific information from you to help us verify your identity and process your request. Please note that, in many instances, we do not collect types of information that enable us to identify you. As such, if we do not have information that permits us to verify your identity, we may deny your requests to know or delete. A request for access can be made by you only twice within a twelve (12) month period.
Right to Opt Out: Under the CCPA, you have the right to opt out of the sale of your Personal Information to third parties at any time. Hoffman does not “sell” your Personal Information as it is currently defined under the CCPA. You may contact us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
Authorized Agent: You can designate an authorized agent to submit requests on your behalf. However, we will require written proof of the agent’s permission to do so and verify your identity directly.
Right to Non-Discrimination: You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for the exercise of any your rights.
California Do-Not-Track Notice: We do not track our Site users over time and across third party websites and therefore do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.
NOTICE TO INTERNATIONAL RESIDENTS: Hoffman is established in the United States. The Site and Services are primarily operated and managed on servers located and operated within the United States. In order to submit a Contact Form, or to purchase a subscription for Services, or to actually use the Services, you may be sending your personal information outside of the country where you reside or are located, including to the United States. Accordingly, if you reside or are located outside of the United States, your personal information may be transferred outside of the country where you reside or are located, including to countries that may not or do not provide the same level of protection for your personal information. We are committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of personal information when it is transferred.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR USERS IN THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA AND UNITED KINGDOM: Hoffman is established in the United States and has operations and service providers in the United States and throughout the world. As such, we and our service providers may transfer your personal information to, or access it in, jurisdictions that may not provide levels of data protection equivalent to those in your country of residence. By using the Site or Services, or otherwise interacting with us, regardless of where you live or where you provide information to us, you consent to our use and our service providers’ use of your personal information worldwide and to the transfer of your personal information to countries outside of your country of residence, including the United States. In certain circumstances, courts, regulatory agencies, law enforcement agencies, or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your personal information.
Hoffman is aware of the July 16, 2020 ruling by the European Court of Justice invalidating the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. Accordingly, we will take adequate measures designed to protect the transfer of Personal Information of individuals in the European Economic Area (EU Member States, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) (“EEA”), such as relying on the European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses (“EU SCCs”) as a legal mechanism for such transfer, or other adequate transfer mechanism as required under relevant data protection laws, as well as additional safeguards, where appropriate. A copy of these clauses may be obtained by contacting us at the email address listed below.
For transfers to or from the United Kingdom (“UK”), we make use of the EU SCCs, as modified by the UK’s International Data Transfer Addendum (collectively the “UK SCCs”). For individuals located in the EEA or the UK, the term “personal information,” as used in this section, is equivalent to “personal data” under applicable European and UK data protection legislation.
If you are located in the EEA, the UK, or Switzerland, you have certain rights and protections under applicable law regarding the processing of your personal information, as defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), and this section applies to you.
Legal Basis for Processing
When we process your personal information, we will do so in reliance on the following lawful bases:
We store Personal Information associated with your Account for as long as your account remains active. If you close your Account, we will delete your Account data within thirty (30) days, unless reasonably necessary to comply with our legal, regulatory, or other compliance obligations. We store other data for as long as necessary to carry out the purposes for which we originally collected it and for other legitimate business purposes, including to meet our legal, regulatory, or other compliance obligations.
For users in the European Union, according to the GDPR, you have the following statutory rights:
If would like to exercise your rights, please let us know by sending an email at email@example.com.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with your local Data Protection Authority or to the Data Protection Authority where the alleged infringement took place.
