Almanac is not in the business of selling your information. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your personal data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
Agents, Consultants and Third-Party Service Providers:
Almanac, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
At your request, we may provide information to third-party businesses to provide you with a product or service of interest to you. We may also provide information to third-party businesses with whom we jointly offer products or services.
As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, personal data may be part of the transferred assets.
Almanac may disclose your personal data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Almanac, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site, the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
Profile and User Content
If you have elected to share you profile and/or User Content, that information will be available to other users of the Platform. That may include your full name, a website, links to social media accounts, profile picture, your company and job, profiles that you are following, your location, and the length of time that you have been an Almanac user.
The Site may have links to third-party websites, which may have privacy policies that differ from our own. We do not control such sites and are not responsible for the practices of such sites, nor does any such link imply that Almanac endorses or has reviewed the third party site subject to such link. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of each third-party website and, if you have any questions or concerns, you must contact those sites directly. We do not endorse, screen or approve the content or practices of other websites or applications and visiting such sites or applications is at your own risk.
Our Service is not offered to anyone under the age of 18 ("Children").
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Child has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.
We have taken certain physical, administrative, and technical steps to safeguard the information we collect from and about our customers and Site visitors. While we make reasonable efforts to help ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee our security measures. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any personal data to the Company via the Internet.
To keep your personal data accurate, current, and complete, please contact us as specified below. We will take reasonable steps to update or correct personal information in our possession that you have previously submitted via the Services.

CCPA Rights Disclosure
If you are a California resident, the CCPA allows you to make certain requests about your personal information. Specifically, the CCPA allows you to request us to:
Please note that certain information may be exempt from such requests under California law. For example, we need certain information in order to provide the Products to you. You may only make such a request twice within a twelve-month period. Requests are generally free; however, we may charge a reasonable fee or deny your request if it is manifestly unfounded, excessive, or repetitive.
To make a CCPA request, please visit this page or contact us at [email protected]. We will request information, which at a minimum will include your name and email address, to verify your identity. We may request additional information to verify your identity before responding to a request. Under the CCPA, you may have an authorized agent submit a request on your behalf, and we will collect certain authorization and verification information from the agent and you in such circumstances.
The CCPA further provides you with the right to receive information about the financial incentives that we offer to you, if any, and the right not to be discriminated against for exercising your rights under applicable law.
If you would like further information regarding your legal rights under California law, please contact us at [email protected].
California Do Not Sell Notice and Information Request
If you are a California resident, the CCPA provides you with the right to opt out of the "sale" of your "personal information." We may allow some of our advertising partners to collect certain pieces of information from our site visitors, such as device identifiers, cookies, advertising IDs, IP addresses, and usage activity, so that we and our partners can deliver ads that are more relevant to you. This type of information sharing with our advertising partners may be considered a "sale" under the CCPA. If you want to opt out of these activities, please contact us at [email protected]. Please note that some or all of the Products may not function if you choose to opt out of such activities.
If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 you to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, information about the personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personal information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared information in the immediately preceding twelve calendar months. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to:

Shine the Light Disclosure
The California "Shine the Light" law gives residents of California the right under certain circumstances to request information from us regarding the manner in which we disclose certain categories of personal information (as defined in the Shine the Light law) with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. We currently do not disclose your personal information to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes.
In states where residents are allowed additional individual rights, we are committed to honoring those rights for such residents, including requests that may limit how we use and share your data, or requests to delete or correct inaccurate data, consistent with applicable law. Note that the applicable law may exempt certain personal information from such requests. To submit a request based on local law, please contact us at [email protected]. We will respond to your request as required by law. If any circumstances cause a material delay in our response, you will be promptly notified.
Under certain state laws, certain residents may out of the sale or sharing of their personal information, or the use of their personal information for targeted advertising or profiling purposes. We will not sale your personal information unless we first provide you with a separate notice prior to such sale. To exercise a legal right you have to opt-out of or limit these activities, please contact at [email protected].
In certain situations, you may have the right to appeal the denial your request to exercise your rights. Please submit an appeal by contacting us at [email protected].
