We will only collect your personal information in accordance with applicable law. The information we collect depends on the context of your interactions with us and the choices you make, including your own privacy settings and the specific Services you use. As further detailed below, we collect your personal information from different sources, including information you provide directly, information collected automatically, information from third-party data sources, and information we infer or generate ourselves.
We may collect your information both online (for example, through your use of the Services) and offline (for example at events or over the phone) and we may combine information collected from disparate sources.
When you are asked to provide personal information, you may decline, or you may decide at any time not to visit our sites, use our Services, or provide information directly to us. As further described below, in certain cases, you may use web browser or operating system controls to prevent certain types of automatic data collection. However, if you choose not to provide or allow personal information that is necessary for certain Services or features of a Service, those Services or features may not be available or fully functional.
If you choose to provide us with personal information about another person, you shall ensure that you have obtained the consent of that person to share their information with us.
Personal information collected directly from you. Most of the personal information we collect or maintain about you is provided directly by you to us. For example, we receive and store personal information you voluntarily enter on our Services or otherwise provide to us (e.g., when you register for and use the Services, when you make payments to us, or submit requests for support to us or when you have a direct communication with us).
Such information we collect directly from you typically includes:
Personal information from third-party collection. Where permitted by law, we may also collect information about you from various third-parties, including:
Such information typically includes personal identifiers, commercial information, and professional or educational information.
Inferences about you. Finally, we may also infer new information from other personal information we collect, including using automated means to generate information about your likely preferences or other characteristics. For example, we infer your general geographic location (such as city, state, and country) based on your IP address.
At all times in accordance with, and solely where permitted by applicable law, we use the categories of personal information identified in Section 1 above for the specific business or commercial purposes of communicating with you, facilitating and responding to your requests, providing, improving, and developing our Services, processing your transactions, customizing your experience, providing you with quality assurance and support for our Services, preventing or investigating fraudulent or inappropriate uses of our Services, and marketing and analytics. We may also use your information as otherwise disclosed to you at the point of the collection of your information.
We may also make full use of data that is aggregated, anonymized or not otherwise in a personally identifiable form.
We provide a variety of ways for you to control the personal information we hold about you, including choices about how we use that data. In some jurisdictions, these controls and choices may be enforceable as rights under applicable law. In particular, see below for more information about your individual rights under California and European privacy laws.

Please be advised that upon receipt of your request, we may ask you to provide additional information so that we can verify your identity and process your request. Additionally, before accepting such a request from an agent, we will require the agent to provide proof you have authorized it to act on your behalf.
We may, in limited circumstances, refuse to comply with your request or charge you a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded or excessive. In all cases, we will notify you of any fee in advance. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances. If you receive a response from us informing you that we have declined your request, in whole or in part, you may appeal that decision by submitting your appeal to our data protection officer using the contact method described at the bottom of this privacy statement.
Marketing and targeted advertising – Where permitted by applicable law, and with your prior consent where required, we may use your information for marketing and advertising purposes, including to provide you with promotional communications about our products and services. You can unsubscribe from further promotional communications from us at any time by selecting the “unsubscribe” link at the end of the various marketing and promotional communications we send you, or by submitting your request via: https://get.chronus.com/preference-center.html. Please keep in mind that even if you unsubscribe from our marketing communications, we may still contact you for other legitimate reasons (e.g., in relation to an order you placed, an inquiry you made, a membership you undertook, an event for which you registered, a legally required notice, etc.).

From time to time, electronic communications we provide may contain code that enables our database to understand whether the communication was opened and/or what links (if any) you have clicked. We may combine such information with other information we have about you and may use this information to improve your experience with our Services and/or provide customized communications to you.

Please note that not all of the foregoing rights are absolute, and limitations or exceptions apply in some cases. Your consent to process your personal information is required to provide the Services to you. If you exercise your right to deny consent, or if you withdraw your consent, we will not be able to provide the Services to you.
To make a request or to obtain more information about exercising your rights, including the possibility and consequences of denying consent, please contact us via: . Please be advised that upon receipt of your request, we may ask you to provide additional information so that we can verify your identity and process your request.
If you file a confirmation of the existence of access to personal information request, please advise whether you want us to answer your request immediately, in which case we will answer in a simplified format, or if you need a complete disclosure instead. In the latter case, we will respond within fifteen (15) days from the time of your request, providing you a declaration that indicates the origin of your personal information, the nonexistence of registration, the criteria used, and the purpose of the processing, while safeguarding our commercial and industrial secrets. You should advise us whether you want your personal information to be provided by electronic means or in printed form. If the ANPD provides a different time period for the foregoing, that time period will control.
If you file a request for the correction, deletion, anonymization or blocking of personal information, we will immediately inform any third parties with whom we have shared your personal information in order to enable such third parties to also comply with your request, except in cases where such communication is proven impossible or involves disproportionate effort.
We may also process your personal information in our role as a data processor for your organization. In such cases, your company is acting as the data controller and we are processing your information on behalf of your organization. For more information, please reach out to your company.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect your information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction, whether in transmission or storage.
In particular, information at rest is protected using AES 256 encryption and we employ controlled interfaces (such as proxies, gateways, routers, firewall, and encrypted tunnels) as well as a variety of additional security controls (e.g., intrusion detection systems, data encryption). All communications within the Chronus Mentor Service are secured via a high-grade 256-bit SSL encryption.
Although we will exercise reasonable care in providing secure transmission of your personal information between your computer and our servers, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us over the Internet and we accept no liability for any unintentional disclosure.
We will retain your personal information in accordance with applicable law and, unless otherwise provided by applicable law, for no longer than necessary to provide the Services and fulfill the transactions you have requested, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, and in furtherance of our other business purposes outlined hereunder.
Because these needs can vary for different types and uses of personal information, actual retention periods can vary based on criteria such as user expectations or consent, the sensitivity of your personal information, the availability of automated controls that enable you to delete data, and our legal or contractual obligations.
Where there are technical limitations that otherwise prevent the deletion or anonymization of your personal information, we will safeguard and limit the use of your personal information as required by applicable law.
The Services may, from time to time, make chat rooms, message boards, news groups and/or other public forums available to you. By submitting such information, you acknowledge that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information.
The Services are not intended for or directed at children and we do not knowingly collect any information from children under 13 years of age through the Services. If we learn that we have collected information from children under 13, we will promptly take steps to delete such information.
