ACTIVATE LLC and its affiliates (collectively “ACTIVATE” “us” and “we”) understand the importance of protecting your personal data.  This Privacy Policy describes how ACTIVATE collects and uses your personal data, who we share it with, and your choices and rights in relation to your personal data.

It applies to personal data that we collect from you during your interactions with us, whether online, including through our websites (including mobile sites) and social media sites (“Sites”) (collectively “Online Services”) that link to this Privacy Policy, in writing or orally, or personal data that we may collect offline or receive from third parties.

Personal Data We Collect

Personal data is any information that identifies you as an individual or relates to you as an identifiable individual.  Personal data we collect may include your name, title, email address, postal address, telephone number, log-in and account information for authentication purposes and account access, your demographics and social media account information.

You can choose not to provide personal data to us when requested.  However, if this is necessary to provide you with our solutions and services, access to our Online Services, or to perform administrative functions, we may be unable to do these things.

Sensitive Personal Data

We do not collect sensitive personal data about you, e.g. information relating to your health, religion, political beliefs, race or sexual orientation and ask that you do not send or provide this information to us.
