We collect several types of information from and about users of our website, including information: (i) by which you may be personally identified, such as name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, or any other information the website collects that is defined as personal or personally identifiable information under an applicable law (“Personal Data”); (ii) that is about you but individually does not identify you; and/or (iii) about your internet connection, the equipment you use to access our website and usage details.

2. How Mutare Uses Your Information
Mutare uses information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including Personal Data, in several ways: (i) to present our website and its contents to you; (ii) to provide you with information, products, or services that you request from us; (iii) to fulfill any other purpose for which you provide it; (iv) to carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from transactions between you and us, including to comply with law and for billing and collection; (v) to notify you about changes to our website; (vi) to notify you about products or services that we or a third party offer; (vii) in any other way we may describe when you provide the information; and/or (viii) for any other purpose with your consent. We also may use such information to fulfill your requests for certain products and services; to carry out a transaction that you have requested; to personalize your experience on our website; to keep you up-to-date on the latest product announcements; to provide to you other information that we think you would like to hear about from us; and to send to you direct marketing information or to contact you for market research. In certain instances, you may adjust your user preferences or check the appropriate box on the form on which we collect your information to indicate to us that you do not want us to use your information in that manner. Please note also that the use and operation of certain of our products and services inherently involves disclosure, storage and use of information, including Personal Data; and further information concerning our products and services is available from Mutare.
We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (known as behavioral tracking).

3. Cookies, Web Beacons and Other Tracking Technologies
A “cookie” is a small data file that the website places on your computer’s hard drive for identification purposes. These data files include information that allows our website to remember important information that will make your use of our website more efficient and useful to you and allow us to better understand our audience and its usage patterns. Cookies do not collect your Personal Data.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings in your browser, as well as to delete any cookies that have been installed in the cookie folder of your browser. However, you may not be able to use all the interactive features of our site if cookies are disabled/deleted. If you do not know how to disable or delete cookies for the browser you are using, you should select ‘cookies’ in the Help function of your browser to get more information.
“Web beacons” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and may be used to track the online movements of users, or when an email has been opened, and to provide other information. Examples of information we collect and analyze in this manner include the IP address used to connect your computer to the Internet; computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform; your activities on our website, including what you view/search for, as well as the URL you come from and go to next (whether this URL is on our site or not); and cookie number.
4. Disclosure to Third Parties
We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction.
If you do not want us to use information that we collect or that you provide to us to be used by us to promote our products or services, or to deliver advertisements according to our advertisers’ target-audience preferences, you can opt-out by communicating your desire via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way. You can opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) on the NAI’s website.
5. Linked Websites
6. Public Forums
We may offer chat rooms, blogs, message boards, bulletin boards, or similar public forums where you and other users of our website can communicate. We may also use and link to social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube. The protections described in this Policy do not apply when you provide information (including Personal Data) in connection with your use of these public forums. Any information you share in a public forum is public information and may be seen or collected by anyone, including third parties that do not adhere to our Policy. We are not responsible for events arising from the distribution of any information you choose to publicly post or share through our website.
7. Notice and Ability to Opt Out / Opt In
When Personal Data is collected, we typically inform the individual at the point of collection or upon our first communication to the individual the purpose for the collection and where appropriate, allow the individual to elect whether to provide the information to Mutare and/or specify how we can use such personal information.
Mutare provides individuals who elect to receive electronic or other communications the ability to “opt-out” of those communications by sending us a notice to unsubscribe. In some cases, when applicable, Mutare will provide an individual with the opportunity to “opt-in.” This means that we will require affirmative action from the individual to indicate his/her consent before we use personal information for purposes other than the purpose for which the personal information was submitted.
8. Children Under the Age of 13
Our website is not intended for children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us as instructed in the Contact and Opt-Out Information sections.
9. Data Security
While no systems are completely secure, we have established administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and appropriate availability of your Personal Data. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Additionally, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.
11. Ability to Access, Update or Remove Information
12. GDPR Compliance
We adhere to applicable data protection laws in the European Union (“EU”) to the extent applicable. In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), users who are located in the EU have the right to: (i) access personal information; (ii) rectify / erase personal information; (iii) restrict the processing of your personal information; (iv) transfer your personal information; (v) object to the processing of personal information; (vi) object to how we use your personal information for direct marketing purposes; (vii) obtain a copy of personal information safeguards used for transfers outside your jurisdiction; and (viii) lodge a complaint with your local supervisory authority. You can exercise your rights by contacting us. Subject to legal and other permissible considerations, we will make reasonable efforts to honor your request promptly or inform you if we require further information in order to fulfil your request.
We may transfer, store, and process information that we collect about you, as described in this Policy, in the United States, which may not provide the same level of protection for your personal information as your home country. In addition, we may further transfer your information outside the United States for the purposes described in this Policy. By submitting any personal information or by using the Website and without limitation to any other rights or obligations we have, you consent to such transfer to, and processing in, the United States and these other countries, and acknowledge that your information may be subject to access by law enforcement and other government entities, including courts and tribunals, in accordance with laws applicable in those jurisdictions. Where personal information that we collect is transferred to and processed in the United States or anywhere else outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) for the purposes described in this Policy, we will take steps to ensure that the information receives the same level of protection as if it remained within the EEA, including entering into data transfer agreements, using the EU Commission approved Standard Contractual Clauses, or by relying on certification schemes such as the EU – US Privacy Shield. You may have a right to details of the mechanisms under which your data is transferred outside the EEA.
We retain personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the transactions you have requested or other purposes to which you have consented, or for other necessary purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes and enforcing our agreements. Because these factors vary for different types of personal data, actual retention periods may vary.
