- Legitimate Interest. We have a legitimate business interest in processing your Personal Information to provide the Services to our Customers. We only rely on legitimate interest as a legal basis when such legitimate interests are not overridden by your interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms and we ensure we comply with any request you make to exercise your rights.

4. Who We Share Personal Information With
We may disclose Personal Information about you under the following circumstances:
- Group Entities. We may disclose Personal Information about you to our affiliates and subsidiaries, if any.

- We use providers of business communication tools for providing product information and marketing materials to you.
- Legal. Information about our Administrators and Users, including Personal Information, will be disclosed to law enforcement agencies, regulatory bodies, public authorities or pursuant to the exercise of legal proceedings if we are legally required to do so, or if we believe, in good faith, that such disclosure is necessary to comply with a legal obligation or request, to enforce our terms and conditions, to prevent or resolve security or technical issues, or to protect the rights, property or safety of WorkBoard, our Administrators or Users, a third party, or the public.

Information about our Administrators or Users, including Personal Information, may be disclosed and otherwise transferred to an acquirer, successor, or assignee as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of assets, or similar transaction, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of our business assets.

5. Privacy Notice for Residents of Certain U.S. States
Some U.S. state laws provide state residents with additional privacy rights. We are not currently subject to any U.S. state law which grants its residents with additional privacy rights, including the California Consumer Protection Act/California Privacy Rights Act.
Do Not Track Disclosure
Regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission have promoted the concept of Do Not Track as a mechanism to permit Internet users to control online tracking activity across websites through their browser settings.
We currently do not process or comply with any web browser’s “do-not-track” signal or other similar mechanism that indicates a request to disable online tracking of individual users who visit our Sites or use our Services.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
Our Services are all directed to people who are at least 16 years old or older.
We do not knowingly collect any “Personal Information” (as defined by the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) from anyone under 16 years of age without valid parental consent. If we become aware that we have collected such Personal Information without parental consent, we will take reasonable steps to delete it as soon as possible.
We also comply with other age restrictions and requirements in accordance with applicable local laws.
Retention of Information
We keep your information for no longer than necessary for the purposes for which it is processed. The length of time for which we retain information depends on the purposes for which we collected and use it and/or as required to comply with applicable laws. For example, we will delete User Content thirty (30) days following the termination of a customer’s subscription unless we agree to an extension.
We implement a variety of security measures designed to protect the safety of your Personal Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction when you enter or submit your Personal Information on the WorkBoard Platform. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any information to us via the Internet.

International Data Transfers
If you provide us with your Personal Information when using the Services from the EEA, Switzerland or the UK or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, then please note that you are transferring your Personal Information outside of those regions to the United States for storage and processing.
If we transfer your Personal Information internationally, we will ensure that relevant safeguards are in place to afford adequate protection for your Personal Information and we will comply with applicable data protection laws, in particular by relying on an EU Commission adequacy decision, or the current standard contractual protections for the transfer of your Personal Information or if a derogation is available.

Third Party Links and Websites
This Privacy Notice does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy practices of any third parties, including those that operate websites to which the WorkBoard Platform links. The inclusion of a link on the WorkBoard Platform does not imply that we or our affiliates endorse the practices of the linked website.
In the event that our Website links to other websites that include our branding, this Privacy Notice does not apply to those other websites. Visitors to those websites are advised to carefully read the notices on those individual websites.
We employ industry standard technological measures that are reasonably designed to help protect your personal information from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. WorkBoard may use, without limitation, firewalls, password protection, secure socket layer, and other security measures to help prevent unauthorized access to your personal information. While we take reasonable efforts to guard personal information, no security system is impenetrable.
Change of Ownership
In the event of a change in ownership, or a merger with, acquisition by, or transfer or sale of all or a portion of our assets to, another entity, we reserve the right to transfer all of your Personal Information, including email addresses, to that entity. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such transfer to an unaffiliated third party (by a posting on our homepage, or by email to your email address that you provided to us, as chosen by us in our discretion).
