If you are a visitor to a Bold Penguin website (including for purposes of obtaining a free trial) or a Bold Penguin customer who registers or signs into a website maintained by Bold Penguin, we may obtain the following types of information from you or concerning your computer or device, which may include information that can itself be used to identify and contact you:
Bold Penguin may also receive certain information that may be provided by your browser or mobile device, including:
We may use your information to:
In certain cases, users may be able to review and edit the personal information they have provided to us by logging into their account on our websites and editing the account preferences. Although many account changes occur immediately, information may still be stored in your web browser cache. We take no responsibility for stored information in your cache, or locations not readily visible, and disclaim all liability as such. Also, Bold Penguin may, from time to time, retain residual information about you in our backup and/or user database.
Websites, products, and services maintained by Bold Penguin may contain links to third party websites, products, or services. These third party websites are not screened for privacy or security by Bold Penguin, and you release us from any liability for the conduct of these third party websites.
We use third party individuals and organizations, including contractors, web hosting providers, and others, to assist us with the collection, interpretation and use of visitor or user data.
In the course of provisioning or maintaining our website, products or services, we may delegate the authority to collect, access, use, and disseminate your information. For example, our web hosting provider stores the information that you provide us, and we may hire outside contractors to perform maintenance or assist us in securing our website.
At times it may become necessary or desirable for Bold Penguin to release your information for legal purposes, such as in response to a request from a government agency or a private litigant. You agree that we may disclose your information to a third party where we believe, in good faith, that it is desirable to do so for the purposes of a civil action, criminal investigation, or other legal matter. In the event that we receive a subpoena affecting your privacy, we may elect to notify you to give you an opportunity to file a motion to quash the subpoena, or we may attempt to quash it ourselves, but we are not obligated to do either. We may also proactively report you, and release your information to, third parties where we believe that it is prudent to do so for legal reasons, such as our belief that you may have engaged in fraudulent activities. You release us from any damages that may arise from or relate to the release of your information to a request from law enforcement agencies or private litigants.
Bold Penguin has implemented reasonable security mechanisms to protect customer and user data that may be maintained on Bold Penguin servers from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Examples of these security mechanisms include limited and password-protected access, high security public/private keys, encryption on processed data, and SSL encryption to protect transmission of data.
Please keep in mind that no security system is totally impenetrable. Despite our best efforts, it may be possible for third parties to intercept or access customer information. Bold Penguin cannot guarantee the security of your information and you agree to not hold Bold Penguin responsible for unauthorized access.
Our websites, products, and services are not directed to children under 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If you are under 13, do not attempt to register or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, please contact us at email@example.com. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete such information from our servers.

Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides California residents with specific rights. This section describes those rights and explains how to exercise them.
Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about the collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months by completing this form, calling us at (614)-699-2114 or sending us a request at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:
Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions, by completing this form, calling us at (614)-699-2114 or sending us a request at email@example.com. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:
Sale of Personal Information Rights
You have the right to request that we not sell your personal information that we collected from you by completing this form, calling us at (614)-699-2114 or sending us a request at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will not sell your personal information on our platform.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by:
Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
Response Timing and Format
Our goal is to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option, provided we have valid deliverable addresses for either method. Any disclosures we provide will only address the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. In our response, we may also explain the reasons why a request cannot be executed, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will use an ASCII text file or other suitable means to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to move the information from one entity to another.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or entirely unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why and provide you with the costs before the request is executed.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:
