You have the right to request certain information about our collection and use of your Personal Data over the past 12 months, including the specific pieces of information collected.


Deletion
You have the right to request that we delete the Personal Data that we have collected from you.

If your deletion request is subject to one of these exceptions, we may deny your deletion request.

Right to Non-discrimination: We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA. We will not deny you our goods or services, charge you different prices or rates, or provide you a lower quality of goods and services if you exercise your rights under the CCPA.

Exercising Your Rights

To exercise the rights described above, you or your Authorized Agent (as defined below) must send us a request that (1) provides sufficient information to allow us to verify that you are the person about whom we have collected Personal Data, and (2) describes your request in sufficient detail to allow us to understand, evaluate, and respond to it. Each request that meets both of these criteria will be considered a “Valid Request.” We may not respond to requests that do not meet these criteria. We will only use Personal Data provided in a Valid Request to verify your identity and complete your request. You do not need an account to submit a Valid Request.

We will work to respond to your Valid Request within 45 days of receipt. We will not charge you a fee for making a Valid Request unless your Valid Request(s) is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.

When we process data due to contractual necessity, failure to provide such Personal Data will result in the inability of you or such Service User to use some or all portions of the Services that require such data.

  • Contact data
  • Social network data
  • Payment information
  • Device/IP information
  • Web analytics
  • Biometric data

Legitimate Interest: We process the following categories of Personal Data when we believe it furthers the legitimate interest of us or third parties.

  • Contact data
  • Device/IP information
  • Web analytics
  • Social network data
  • We may also de-identify or anonymize Personal Data to further our legitimate interests.

    Examples of these legitimate interests include:
  • Operation and improvement of our business, products and Services
  • Marketing of our products and Services
  • Provision of customer support or correspondence with you
  • Protection from fraud or security threats
  • Compliance with legal obligations or enforcement of legal terms
  • Completion of corporate transactions

Consent: In some cases, we process Personal Data based on the consent you expressly grant to us at the time we collect such data.

Other Processing Grounds: From time to time, we may also need to process Personal Data to comply with a legal obligation, if it is necessary to protect the vital interests of you or other data subjects, or if it is necessary for a task carried out in the public interest.

Data Subject Rights


You have certain rights with respect to your Personal Data in certain circumstances, including those set out below. For more information about these rights, or to submit a request, please email us at privacy@clarifai.com. Please note that in some circumstances, we may not be able to fully comply with your request, such as if we are unable to identify your Personal Data or your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. In those circumstances, we will still respond to notify you of such a decision. In some cases, we may also need to verify your identity and the nature of your request.

  • Access: You can request information about the Personal Data we process about you and request a copy of your Personal Data. As a Service User, you can access certain of your Personal Data by logging on to your account.

  • Withdrawal of Consent: If we are processing your Personal Data based on your consent (as indicated at the time of collection of such data), you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Please note that if you withdraw your consent this does not affect the lawfulness of our processing of your Personal Data before this time.
  • Portability: You can ask for a copy of your Personal Data in a machine-readable format. You can also request that we transmit the data to another controller where technically feasible.

Transfers of Personal Data outside Europe

 
The Services are hosted and operated in the United States through Clarifai and its service providers, and laws in the United States may differ from the laws where you reside. By using the Services, you acknowledge that any Personal Data about you, regardless of whether provided by you or obtained from a third party, is being provided to Clarifai in the United States and will be hosted on United States servers and accessible in the United States and Estonia. Wherever Clarifai transfers Personal Data outside Europe, we take measures to ensure such transfers are made in compliance with applicable data protection laws, including the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"). These measures include implementing standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission and UK authorities with our Customers and service providers, and implementing additional safeguards as necessary.

Although we do not rely on it as a transfer mechanism under the GDPR, Clarifai has certified to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework set forth by the United States Department of Commerce regarding the collection and use of Personal Data transferred from the EU, and to the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework set forth by the United States Department of Commerce regarding the collection and use of Personal Data transferred from Switzerland. For more information about the Privacy Shield Program, and to view Clarifai’s certification, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov. Clarifai is committed to the Privacy Shield Principles of (1) notice, (2) consent, (3) accountability for onward transfer, (4) security, (5) data integrity and purpose limitation, (6) access and (7) recourse, enforcement and liability with respect to all Personal Data received from within the EU or Switzerland in reliance on the Privacy Shield. The Privacy Shield Principles require that we remain potentially liable if any third party processing Personal Data on our behalf fails to comply with these Privacy Shield Principles (except to the extent we are not responsible for the event giving rise to any alleged damage). Clarifai’s compliance with the Privacy Shield is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the United States Federal Trade Commission.

Please contact us at privacy@clarifai.com with any questions or concerns relating to our Privacy Shield Certification. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your Privacy Shield-related complaint from us, or if we have not resolved your complaint, you may also resolve a Privacy Shield-related complaint through: JAMS, an alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States. You can visit https://www.jamsadr.com/ for more information or to file a complaint, at no cost to you. Under certain conditions, you may also be entitled to invoke binding arbitration for complaints not resolved by other means. If there is any conflict between the terms in this Privacy Policy and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern. To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view our certification please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/.

We may be required to disclose Personal Data that we handle under the Privacy Shield in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

Clarifai will use reasonable efforts to deactivate your account and the related information at your request as soon as reasonably possible. If you wish for further deletion of your Personal Data, you will need to clearly state that you are requesting deletion of all of your Personal Data, and not just deletion of your account. Please note, however, that Clarifai reserves the right to retain information from deactivated or deleted accounts, including to comply with law, prevent fraud, resolve disputes, enforce the Agreement and take other actions permitted by law.

 

You can also opt-out of marketing communications at any time by clicking on the "opt-out" or “Manage Preferences” link in the email communication or by emailing us at privacy@clarifai.com.

You must promptly notify us if any of your account data is lost, stolen or used without permission.

Data Retention

We retain Personal Data about you for as long as you have an open account with us or as otherwise necessary to provide Services to you or the Service User that provided us with your Personal Data. In some cases we retain Personal Data for longer, for example if we retain your Personal Data to train our models and algorithms, to improve our Services, or if doing so is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes or collect fees owed, and as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law, rule or regulation, or if you or the Service User that provided us with your Personal Data have given us express consent to retain Personal Data for longer. We may also further retain information in an anonymous or aggregated form where that information would not identify you personally.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We’re constantly trying to improve our Services, so we may need to change this Privacy Policy from time to time as well, but we will alert you to any material changes by placing a notice on the https://www.clarifai.com/ website, by sending you an email, and/or by some other means. Please note that if you’ve opted not to receive legal notice emails from us (or you haven’t provided us with your email address), those legal notices will still govern your use of the Services, and you are still responsible for reading and understanding them. If you use the Services after any changes to the Privacy Policy have been posted, then your use of the Services is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time.
