4. CONTROL OVER YOUR INFORMATION

Email communications preferences:  From time to time, we may send you emails regarding updates to our Sites, products or services, notices about our organization or information about products/services we offer.  If you wish to unsubscribe from such emails, simply click the “unsubscribe” link provided in such communications.  We make every effort to promptly process all unsubscribe requests.  Please note that you may not opt out of service-related communications (e.g., account verification, transactional communications, changes/updates to features of the Sites, or technical or security notices).

Modifying or deleting your information:  If you have any questions about reviewing, modifying or deleting your information, you can contact us directly at gc@humcapital.com.  We may not be able to modify or delete your information in all circumstances.

Other rights you may have:  The rights described in this subsection are applicable to you only if you reside in a jurisdiction where the provision of such rights is required by the data protection and privacy laws and regulations of the governing regulatory authority.  As such, where required by applicable law or regulation, you may ask Hum Capital for a copy of your personal information, to correct it, to erase it or to transfer it to other organizations.  You may also have rights to object to some processing and, where we have asked for your consent to process your personal information, to withdraw this consent.  In particular, you have rights to object to direct marketing at any time.

You should also be aware that these rights may be limited (for example, access to personal information may be denied if making the information available would reveal personal information about another person or if we are legally prevented from disclosing such information).  In addition, Hum Capital may be able to retain data even if you withdraw your consent if we can demonstrate that we have a legal requirement to process your personal information. If you do not provide personal information in circumstances in which we must collect and process such information in order to comply with applicable law or enter into and perform services under an agreement with you, we may not be able to enter into the agreement or provide services as contemplated by any agreement we have in place.  If we are not able to fulfill a request you make because your rights are limited, we will inform you of the reasons why when responding.

We will need to verify your identity prior to addressing your request.

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to personal information collected about you.  To designate an authorized agent, the authorized agent must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that they have been authorized by you to act on their behalf. 

Should you have any questions or requests in relation to your rights, please email gc@humcapital.io.  We will attempt to deal with all requests at the earliest opportunity.  In addition, if you have unresolved concerns you have the right to complain, where permitted, to competent data protection authorities.

To provide a personalized and high-quality experience for our users, we and our third-party partners may use various technologies that automatically record certain technical information from your browser or device when you visit or use our Sites, read our emails or otherwise engage with us.  This information is typically collected through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, Web beacons, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, file information and similar technology (collectively, “tracking technologies”).

We and our third-party providers use these tracking technologies to automatically collect usage and device information, such as:

We may collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools such as Google Analytics, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Sites and to understand more about our users by monitoring aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, usage, and demographic patterns on our website.  You can learn more about Google’s practices at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners, and view its currently available opt-out options at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.  Some of this data may be used for advertising purposes.

We may also work with third-party partners to employ technologies, including the application of statistical modeling tools, which permit us to recognize and contact you across multiple devices.

Do Not Track Signals:  Although we do our best to honor the privacy preferences of our users, we are unable to respond to Do Not Track signals set by your browser or mobile application at this time.
