Our Commercial or Business Purposes for Collecting Personal Data
We will not collect additional categories of Personal Data or use the Personal Data we collected for materially different, unrelated or incompatible purposes without providing you notice.
How We Share Your Personal Data
We disclose your Personal Data to the categories of service providers and other parties listed in this section. Depending on state laws that may be applicable to you, some of these disclosures may constitute a “sale” of your Personal Data. For more information, please refer to the state-specific sections below.
We may share any Personal Data that we collect with third parties in conjunction with any of the activities set forth under “Meeting Legal Requirements and Enforcing Legal Terms” in the “Our Commercial or Business Purposes for Collecting Personal Data” section above.
All of your Personal Data that we collect may be transferred to a third party if we undergo a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy or other transaction in which that third party assumes control of our business (in whole or in part). Should one of these events occur, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you before your information becomes subject to different privacy and security policies and practices.
Data that is Not Personal Data
We may create aggregated, de-identified or anonymized data from the Personal Data we collect, including by removing information that makes the data personally identifiable to a particular user. We may use such aggregated, de-identified or anonymized data and share it with third parties for our lawful business purposes, including to analyze, build and improve the Services and promote our business, provided that we will not share such data in a manner that could identify you
Information about Biometric Information We Collect from Our Users
Our Collection and Use of Biometric Information. We may collect biometric information about our users in order to create and operate our users’ avatars, and to train our models. Biometric information is a form of personal data based on an individual’s biometric identifier – such as an iris scan, fingerprint, voiceprint, hand geometry, or facial geometry – that is used to identify an individual. As used in this policy, “Biometric Information” refers to both “biometric information” and “biometric identifiers” as those terms are defined under applicable law. We use Biometric Information to create and operate our users’ avatars and to improve our models and consequently our avatars. We may also use Biometric Information to comply with applicable legal obligations or comply with a request from law enforcement or government entities, unless prohibited by law.
Our Retention of Biometric Information. We retain your Biometric Information in accordance with our contractual obligations with our customers, with the specific retention periods determined by our customers. Unless a different retention period is required by our customer by contract, Biometric Information will be retained until the earlier of (i) the initial purpose for collecting or obtaining such Biometric Information has been satisfied or (ii) three years following the user’s last interaction with us. Our hosting and cloud compute provider will only store Biometric Information on our behalf for the retention periods set forth in this section. Such storage by our hosting and cloud compute provider is necessary for us to provide you with the Services. Our hosting and cloud compute provider will not access or use your Biometric Information for any other purpose. Once the retention periods in this section have expired, Biometric Information will be permanently and irretrievably deleted by our hosting and cloud compute provider.
How We Secure Biometric Information. We seek to protect your Biometric Information from unauthorized access, use and disclosure using appropriate physical, technical, organizational and administrative security measures. We endeavor to protect Biometric Information in the same or more protective manner than the manner in which we store, transmit, or protect other confidential and sensitive information. Although we work to protect the security of your data that we hold in our records, please be aware that no method of transmitting data over the internet or storing data is completely secure.
Questions about Your Biometric Information. If you have questions about the collection and use of your Biometric Information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Information about Interest-Based Advertisements:
We may serve advertisements, and also allow third-party ad networks, including third-party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms, to serve advertisements through the Services.
