By using the Website, you consent to the collection and use of personal information in accordance with this policy. By using the Website, you also agree to be bound by the Canopy Bridge Terms and Conditions (“Terms”), as set forth on the website.

BY USING OUR WEBSITE OR SERVICES OR SUBMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION THROUGH OUR WEBSITE OR SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT AND YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION ACCORDING TO THIS PRIVACY NOTICE. IF YOU DO NOT WANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOURSELF TO BE USED IN THE MANNER SET FORTH IN THIS PRIVACY NOTICE, DO NOT USE THE WEBSITE.


1. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

Passive Information We Collect About You

When you visit canopybridge.com, some information is automatically collected, such as your IP address, browser type, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Website, the “referring URL” (i.e., the page from which you navigated to canopybridge.com), the pages you navigate to on the Website, and from which you leave the Website, as well as the time you spend on the Website. In addition to using Uniform Resource Locators (URL), we also use Cookies to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and the information for which you searched and viewed.
We use cookies to collect additional website usage data, and to improve and personalize the Website and our service to you. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk.

We do not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with the Website and our service, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on the Website, and to improve the Website and our services. A session cookie enables certain features of the Website and our service and is deleted from your computer when you disconnect from or leave the Website. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Website. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit.

We collect information passively using technologies such as standard server logs, cookies, and clear GIFs (also known as “Web beacons”). We use passively-collected information to administer, operate, and improve canopybridge.com and our other services and systems, and to provide services and content that are tailored to you. We may aggregate information collected from our users to show statistical data to our potential investors. WE WILL NOT SHARE, SELL, RENT, SWAP OR OTHERWISE AUTHORIZE ANY THIRD PARTY TO ACCESS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION.

Also, please be aware that third parties may set cookies on your hard drive or use other means of collecting information about your use of their services or content. We do not have access to, or control over, these third-party means of passive data collection and do not assume responsibility for such third-party privacy practices.

Personal Information We Collect From You

We may also collect personal information from you, specifically information that you provide to us when you create your profile or user account. For instance, when you register on the Website, request information about products or services, request support, or otherwise communicate with us, we collect the personal information that is provided to us. We may collect personal information such as name, e-mail address, address, other demographic information, interests and preferences, company information, payment information, and any other information you choose to share in your profile. Personal information may also include information about an individual’s activities, such as, without limitation, information about his or her activity on the Website.


2. HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

Personally Identifiable Information

We do not use personal information collected from you in a personally identifiable manner. We may aggregate the personal information collected from our users in a non-personally identifiable manner. Aggregate information is information that we collect about a group or category of products, services or customers that is not personally identifiable or from which individual identities are removed. WE MAY USE AND DISCLOSE AGGREGATE INFORMATION, AND OTHER NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION, FOR VARIOUS PURPOSES. WE WILL NOT SHARE, SELL, RENT, SWAP OR OTHERWISE AUTHORIZE ANY THIRD PARTY TO ACCESS YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION.

Using Your Information to Aggregate Statistics

We may disclose aggregate statistics regarding user behavior as a measure of interest in, and use of, the Website and e-mails to third parties in the form of aggregate data, such as overall patterns or demographic reports that do not describe or identify any individual user. We may also use non-personally identifiable aggregate statistics of our users for internal purposes such as to administer, operate and improve the Website.
We may provide your information to third-party services who work on behalf of or with us to provide some of the services and features of the Website or services and to help us communicate with you. Examples of such services may include, but are not limited to, sending emails, analyzing data, and providing marketing assistance. These third-parties are required not to disclose your personal information and not to use your personal information except based on our instructions and in accordance with this Privacy Notice. Any information we disclose or use will be in non-personally identifiable form.

Private Communications at Canopy Bridge

Canopy Bridge records all conversations between users for security purpose and is not allowed to reproduce that content to third parties. Any material submitted Canopy Bridge may be monitored for the maintenance of system performance and compliance with established rules. We respect your privacy and Canopy Bridge limits access to your personal communications by our administrators to those cases where there is reasonable cause to believe that a user is violating norms established in the Terms of Use, or where one or more users has not claimed their account and/or included a current email contact for their profile (as is the case for user profiles created by Canopy Bridge). In these instances, Canopy Bridge administrators may step in to help ensure that the message reaches its intended recipient in order to help producers, buyers or others connect.

Disclosing Your Information as a Part of a Merger, Sale or Other Financing

In the event of a change in ownership, or a merger with, acquisition by, or sale of assets to, another entity, we reserve the right to transfer all of your personal information to that entity. Information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed and/or sold as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of company assets, or similar transaction by us, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information could be transferred and/or sold to third parties as one of our business assets.

Using Your Information to Improve Canopy Bridge

We may also use personal information to provide services and information that you request; to enhance, improve, operate, and maintain canopybridge.com, our programs, services, website, and other systems; to prevent fraudulent use of the Website and services; to tailor your user experience; to maintain a record of our dealings with you, and for other administrative purposes.

Disclosing Your Information if Legally Required

We may also disclose personal information if we believe that doing so is legally required or is in our interest to protect our property or other legal rights (including, but not limited to, enforcement of our agreements), or the rights or property of others.

Feedback

If you provide feedback to us, we may use and disclose such feedback for any purpose, provided we do not associate such feedback with your personal information. We will collect any information contained in such feedback and will treat the personal information in it in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
