Please read this Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how Circuit will treat it. By accessing or using the Platform, you agree to the provisions of this Policy. This Policy may change from time to time in Circuit’s sole discretion.

What information do we collect?
Information You Provide Us. When you use the Platform, we may ask you to provide us with certain categories of information such as personally identifiable information (i.e information that could reasonably be used to identify you) such as your name, personal or other address, email address, home phone number, cell phone number, or any other information that is defined as personal or personally identifiable information under applicable law (“Identifying Information”).
Information We May Collect As You Access And Use The Platform. In addition to any Identifying Information or other information that you choose to submit to us, we reserve the right to use a variety of technologies that automatically (or passively) collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns whenever you interact with the Platform, including: (i) details of your visits to and use of the Platform, including traffic data, location data, your IP address, and other communication data and the resources that you access and use on the Platform; and (ii) information about your computer and internet connection, including your IP address, operating system, and browser type (collectively, “Usage Information”). These server logs may include information such as your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”), browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser from your computer, tablet, iPad, iPhone, smartphone, or other device used to access the Platform (any, a “Device”). A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device used to access the Platform, and our systems identify your Device by its Device Identifier.
We may use aggregate data collected in log files and cookies for general purposes, which may include, without limitation, to enhance or otherwise improve the Platform, to customize the advertising and content you see, develop new services, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients. These cookies and log files do not store your Identifying Information, but they are tied to your Identifying Information in our system.
Below are examples of methods that we may use to collect Usage Information. In the future, other new technology and methods for collecting Usage Information may develop:
What do we use your information for?

How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your Identifying Information. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to protect information that we collect about you, and incorporate commercially reasonable safeguards to help protect and secure your Identifying Information. However, no data transmission over the internet, wireless transmission or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to us, and you use the Platform and provide us with your information at your own risk.
The safety and security of your Identifying Information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the Platform, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Circuit asks you not to share your password with anyone.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information other than as set forth in this policy. The aforementioned restriction does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our websites, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Administrative and Legal Reasons. We may access, use, preserve, transfer and disclose your information, including, without limitation Identifying Information: (i) to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, subpoenas, governmental requests or legal process if in our good faith opinion such is required or permitted by law; (ii) enforce or administer our agreements with users, such as this Policy, including investigation of potential violations thereof; (iii) to protect the safety, rights, property or security of the Platform or any third party; and/or (iv) to detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues. Further, we may use IP addresses or other Device Identifiers, to identify users, and may do so in cooperation with third parties such as copyright owners, internet service providers, wireless service providers and/or law enforcement agencies, including disclosing such information to third parties, all in our discretion. Such disclosures may be carried out without notice to you.
Business Transfer. We reserve the right to disclose and transfer all such personally identifiable information: (i) to a subsequent owner, co-owner or operator of the Platform or applicable database; or (ii) in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, restructuring, the sale of substantially all of assets or other corporate change, including, during the course of any due diligence process.
Third Party Links
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our Platform. Such third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.
