This Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the Prelude Terms of Service. Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Policy have the meaning given to them in the Terms of Service.
1. Information We Collect
While using the Services, we will ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, phone number and other contact information. You may provide us with Personal Information when you register for an account, use the Services, contact customer support, sign up for marketing material, or otherwise communicate with us. Please note that if you choose not to share certain Personal Information with us, or refuse certain contact permissions, we might not be able to provide certain parts of the Services. Additionally, other customers may give us your Personal Information, such as when a customer wants to schedule an interview or contact you via the Services. In such case, if you wish to exercise any of your rights with respect to your Personal Information, please contact the applicable third party directly.
We collect information about how you interact with the Services, such as device type, IP address, operating system, browser type, address of a referring website, activity on our website, device ID, access dates and times, location, information related to your transactions on the Services, and other system activity. We may collect certain information by automated means using technologies such as cookies, web beacons, pixels, browser analysis tools, server logs, and mobile identifiers. In many cases the information we collect using cookies and other tools is only used in a non-identifiable manner without reference to Personal Information. For example, we may use information we collect to better understand website traffic patterns and to optimize your experience. In some cases we associate the information we collect using cookies and other technology with Personal Information. We track users’ use of the Services, but we do not track users across third party websites. We do not process or respond to web browsers’ “do not track” signals or other similar transmissions that indicate a request to disable online tracking of users who visit or use the Services.
Information Received from Third Parties
If you choose to connect your account to your account with a third-party service, we may receive or be granted access to information from such third-party service, including Personal Information. You can stop sharing your information from a third-party service with us by removing our access to that service.
2. How We Use Your Information
Provide, Maintain, and Improve the Services
We may use your information to:
Sharing Your Information
If you use the Services, you are authorizing us to share information:
Nothing herein restricts the sharing of aggregated or anonymized information, which may be shared with third parties without your consent. This Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate or de-identified information.
Links to Third-Party Sites and Services
The Services may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the practices employed by websites or services linked to or from the Services, nor the information or content provided to or contained therein. Please remember that when you use a link to go from the Services to another website, this Policy does not apply to those third-party websites or services. Your browsing and interaction on any third-party website or service, including those that have a link on the Services, are subject to that third party’s own rules and policies. Please read those rules and policies before proceeding.
3. How We Protect Your Information
We take measures designed to protect Personal Information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, such as the use of firewalls, password protection, secure socket layer, encryption, and other security measures. We will only keep your Personal Information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To comply with applicable laws and regulations that govern our provision of the Services, we may retain certain Personal Information for seven years after receipt. We may also retain and use your Personal Information for as long as necessary to resolve disputes and/or enforce our rights. Where we rely on your consent to process your Personal Information, you have the right to decline consent and/or if provided, to withdraw consent at any time. This will not affect the lawfulness of processing prior to the withdrawal of your consent. Additionally, in some circumstances you can ask us to delete your Personal Information.
We limit access to Personal Information to our employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process Personal Information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We have implemented procedures to handle any suspected Personal Information breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach as legally required.
Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse. To protect the confidentiality of information maintained in your account, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. You are responsible for all uses of the Services by any person using your password. Please advise us immediately if you believe your password has been misused.
4. International Transfers
If you choose to use the Services from the EEA, the UK, Switzerland, or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you are transferring your Personal Information outside of those regions to the U.S. for storage and processing. By providing any information, including Personal Information, on or to the Services, you consent to such transfer, storage, and processing.
As described in this Policy, we may share Personal Information with third parties and may be required to disclose information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
The legal grounds for our processing your Personal Information for the purposes in this Policy are as follows:
On July 16, 2020, the European Court of Justice issued a judgment declaring invalid the adequacy of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework (the “Framework”). In accordance with the U.S. Department of Commerce’s guidance and recommendation, we do and will continue to participate in the Framework and will comply with our ongoing obligations with respect to transfers made under the Framework. Additionally, we continue to follow robust privacy principles and to review this Policy to ensure it describe our privacy practices accurately, including with regard to international data transfers.
Other International Transfers
If you are located outside the U.S., the EEA, the UK, and Switzerland, and you choose to provide Personal Information to us, we may transfer your Personal Information to the U.S. and process it there (or any other country where we operate or may have co-locations). When you provide Personal Information, it may be sent to servers located in the U.S. and other countries around the world.
5. California Privacy Rights
California law permits California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their personal information (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of personal information disclosed to those third parties. See the “Contact” section for where to send such requests. We do not share your Personal Information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes without your prior consent. Accordingly, you can prevent disclosure of your Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes by withholding consent.
Effective January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “CCPA”) allows California residents, upon a verifiable consumer request, to request that a business that collects consumers’ personal information (as defined in the CCPA) to give consumers access, in a portable and (if technically feasible) readily usable form, to the specific pieces and categories of personal information that the business has collected about the consumer, the categories of sources for that information, the business or commercial purposes for collecting the information, and the categories of third parties with which the information was shared. California residents also have the right to submit a request for deletion of information under certain circumstances. See the “Contact” section for where to send such requests. Consistent with California law, if you choose to exercise your rights, we will not charge you different prices or provide different quality of services unless those differences are related to your information. Please note that you must verify your identity and request before further action is taken. As a part of this process, government identification may be required. Consistent with California law, you may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. In order to designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf, you must provide a valid power of attorney, the requester’s valid government issued identification, and the authorized agent’s valid government issued identification.
We do not sell personal information to third parties. We do allow third parties to collect and share personal information through the Services and share personal information with third parties for the business purposes described in this Policy.
6. Children’s Privacy
The Services is not directed to children under 16 and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 16. If we learn that we have collected Personal Information of a child under 16, we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible.

We will take steps to delete your Personal Information as soon as is practicable, but we may not be able to modify or delete your Personal Information in all circumstances, and some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records and as otherwise required by law.
You may “opt out” of receiving marketing or promotional emails from us by following the instructions in those emails or by emailing us at the email address below. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as emails about your account or our ongoing business relations (i.e. account verification, transactional communications, changes/updates to features of the Services, and technical and security notices).
