1. PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
Information that You Provide
We collect personal information from you. The categories of information we collect can include:
Information from Third Party Sources
We may receive personal information about you from third parties and combine that with the information we collect through the Service. For example, we receive information about your activities on third party websites you access through the Service. We may also receive information from any third-party services that you link to the Service. For example, if you link your Nectir account to your account on a social network such as Discord or Slack, these services will authenticate your identity and may provide some of your personal information to us. We may also receive personal information from website and service operators, payment processors, marketing partners, and shipping providers. The data we receive is dependent on that third party’s policies and your privacy settings on that third-party service. We will store your authentication token and any personal information the service provides to us in order to provide you with the Service.
We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide the features and functionality of the Service, as well as to communicate directly with you, such as to send you email messages and push notifications, and permit you to communicate with others on the Service or invite others to join the Service. We may also send you Service-related emails or messages (e.g., account verification, change or updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). For more information about your communication preferences, see “Your Data Rights and Choices” below.
Usage and Device Information (Tracking Technologies)
To provide a personalized and high-quality experience for our users, we may use various technologies that automatically record certain technical information from your browser or device when you visit our website, read our emails, use our Service or otherwise engage with us. This information is typically collected through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, web beacons, file information and similar technology (collectively, “tracking technologies”).
These tracking technologies cookies collect information about how you use the Service (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click, emails you open, and other actions you take on the Service), information about your browser and online usage patterns (e.g., Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, pages viewed, whether you opened an email , links clicked), and information about the device(s) you use to access the Service (e.g., mobile device identifier, mobile carrier, device type, model and manufacturer, mobile device operating system brand and model, and whether you access the Service from multiple devices). We may be able to determine your approximate location by analyzing other information, like an IP address. We may also collect analytics data or use third-party analytics tools such as Google Analytics to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. You can learn more about Google’s practices at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners, and view its currently available opt-out options at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. Although we do our best to honor the privacy preferences of our visitors, we are not able to respond to Do Not Track signals from your browser at this time.
We use or may use the data collected through tracking technologies to secure the Service, improve the Service, to save you time, to provide better technical support, and to track website usage. For example, tracking technologies help us to: (a) remember information so that a user will not have to re-enter it during subsequent visits; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) to identify you across multiple devices; (d) to provide and monitor the effectiveness of our Service; (e) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and usage on our website and our Service; (f) diagnose or fix technology problems; (g) help users efficiently access information after signing in, and (h) otherwise to plan for and enhance our Service.
If you would prefer not to accept cookies, most browsers will allow you to: (i) change your browser settings to notify you when you receive a cookie, which lets you choose whether or not to accept it; (ii) disable existing cookies; or (iii) set your browser to automatically reject cookies. Please note that doing so may negatively impact your experience using the Service, as some features and services on our Service may not work properly. Depending on your mobile device and operating system, you may not be able to delete or block all cookies.

2. SHARING OF YOUR INFORMATION
Nectir may disclose your personal information when you post content that is visible to others on the Service, when you consent or instruct us to share your information with third parties, or when we have a legitimate business or legal need to share your information.

3. THIRD PARTY TRACKING AND ONLINE ADVERTISING
Please note that we will our best efforts and take multiple steps to avoid the use of Student Data (defined in Section 6) for targeted advertising purposes, for example, by inhibiting these third party advertising networks from collecting information for targeted advertising purposes when a Student logs into the Service through their Student Account. Additionally, we do not knowingly direct targeted advertising to individuals we know to be Students on our Service or on any other website or online service.
To learn about interest-based advertising and how you may be able to opt-out of some of this advertising, you may wish to visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s online resources, at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices, and/or the DAA’s resources at www.aboutads.info/choices. You may also be able to limit interest-based advertising through the settings on your mobile device by selecting “limit ad tracking” (iOS) or “opt-out of interest-based ads” (Android). You may also be able to opt-out of some – but not all – interest-based ads served by mobile ad networks by visiting http://youradchoices.com/appchoices and downloading the mobile AppChoices app.
Please note that opting-out of receiving interest-based advertising through the NAI’s and DAA’s online resources will only opt-out a user from receiving interest-based ads on that specific browser or device, but the user may still receive interest-based ads on his or her other devices. You must perform the opt-out on each browser or device you use.

5. LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES AND SERVICES

If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and we do not accept any responsibility or
liability for their policies or content. We strongly recommend that you read their privacy policies and terms and conditions of use to understand how they collect, use, and share information.
6. HOW DOES NECTIR PROTECT STUDENT DATA AND COMPLY WITH LAWS?
This Section describes how we collect, use and process the personal information collected from a Student when that Student enrolls in our Service as a member of, and through its affiliation with, an official college or university (“Student Data”). In order to be considered a verified Student, the individual must have a school email address on file and be verified by the School Admin User with authority over the School accounts.
This Section does not apply to Individual Users who sign up for our Service independently and not through an official affiliation with a college or university. For clarity, Independent User’s data account is not associated with an enterprise School account and will not be considered “Student Data.”
Compliance with laws: We do not use Student Data for any purpose other than to provide the Services, in accordance with our contractual agreements with the participating colleges or universities, our Terms of Service, and this Privacy Notice. Nectir does not own or control Student Data, which belongs to the Student and/or the college or university that contracts with Nectir to provide the Service to the Student.
The Nectir Service is designed to provide protections for Student Data as required by applicable privacy laws. For example:
Student Data Privacy Principles. We are committed to the following principles to protect Student Data:
