Other organizations who receive personal information

Third Parties

We may use trusted third party agents to help us conduct research and in such cases we enter into specific data protection and confidentiality terms with those agents to ensure they protect your personal data to the same levels as QualQuant Signals. We may also share your survey and form responses with third parties, such as media firms, financial services, or market research firms. Except where you intentionally direct us to share your identifiable information with third parties — such as when you consent to us sharing your contact information with one of these third parties or where you affirmatively include identifiable information in a survey response (e.g. include your name or email address in answering a survey)—we will not share information that identifies you, such as your name or email address. Even where you intentionally direct us to share your identifiable information with third parties, QualQuant Signals contractually prohibits such third parties from disclosing your identity to other third parties.

CALIFORNIA RIGHTS AND CHOICES

Subject to certain restrictions, California residents have the right to request that we disclose what personal information we collect about you, to delete any personal information that we collected from or maintain about you, and to opt-out of the sale of personal information about you. As a California resident, you also have the right to designate an agent to exercise these rights on your behalf. This section describes how to exercise those rights and our process for handling those requests, including our means of verifying your identity. If you would like further information regarding your legal rights under applicable law or would like to exercise any of them, please email us at privacy@QualQuantSignals.com

Accessing and Deleting Your Personal Information

    • Right to request access to your personal information
      California residents have the right to request that we disclose what categories of personal information that we collect, use, or sell about you. You may also request the specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you. However, we may withhold some information where the risk to you or your personal information is too great to disclose the information, such as financial information or account passwords.
    • Right to request deletion of your personal information
      You may also request that we delete any personal information that we have collected from/about you. However, we may retain personal information as authorized under applicable law, such as personal information required as necessary to provide our services, protect our business and systems from fraudulent activity, to debug and identify errors that impair existing functionality, as necessary for us, or others, to exercise their free speech or other rights, comply with law enforcement requests pursuant to lawful process, for scientific or historical research, for our own internal purposes reasonably related to your relationship with us, or to comply with legal obligations. We need certain types of information so that we can provide our services. If you ask us to delete it, you may no longer be able to access or use our services.
    • How to exercise your access and deletion rights
      California residents may exercise their California privacy rights by submitting an email at privacy@QualQuantSignals.com

For security purposes, we may request additional information from you to verify your identity when you request to exercise your California privacy rights.

If you have an online account with us, logging into your account will serve to verify your identity and request, although we may request additional information if we believe your account has been compromised. If you do not have an account with us, or if we have reason to suspect that the security of your account is compromised, we will request additional information from you to match with our existing records to verify your identity, depending on the nature of the request and the sensitivity of the information sought.

Once you submit a request to (1) access the categories of personal information we have about you or (2) obtain a copy of specific pieces of personal information we have about you, we will ask that you verify you identity by logging into your account using your username and password. There, we will provide you with your information in a password-protected format.

To request that we delete personal information we have collected from you, you will need to authenticate with us by first logging into your account using your user name and password on file with us and deleting your account. Once you let us know you’ve taken this action, we will initiate the deletion process.

If you wish to exercise any of these rights and do not have an account with us, please contact us here and we will request additional information to perform identity verification where possible.

Sales of Personal Information

The CCPA requires businesses that “sell” personal information, as the term “sell” is defined under the CCPA, to provide California residents the right to opt out from such sales. QualQuant Signals does not “sell” your personal information as we understand that term to be defined by the CCPA and its implementing regulations. To the extent that you have taken the position that a website’s use of third-party cookies or similar technology for advertising or analytics constitutes a “sale” under the CCPA, you may consider QualQuant Signals to have “sold” what the CCPA refers to as “identifiers” (e.g. IP addresses), “internet or other electronic network activity information” (e.g. information about an individual’s browsing activity on a QualQuant Signals website), and “commercial information” (e.g. the fact that a browser visited a webpage directed at individuals considering purchasing QualQuant Signals products or services).

California residents have the right to not be discriminated against for exercising their rights as described in this section. We will not discriminate against you for exercising your CCPA rights.

Do Not Track Disclosure

Regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission have promoted the concept of Do Not Track as a mechanism to permit Internet users to control online tracking activity across websites through their browser settings. Since no industry standard has been adopted, we currently do not process or comply with any web browser’s “do-not-track” signal or other similar mechanism that indicates a request to disable online tracking of individual users who visit the QualQuant Signals website.
