Non-Identifiable or Aggregated Data:
When you interact with Modo Labs through the Site or Services, in addition to other information, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. Modo Labs may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Modo Labs affiliates, agents or service providers. We may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers, and how our users use and interact with the Services. Also, in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, Modo Labs often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis. Modo Labs may share this non-identifiable and aggregate data with the business you work for and our affiliates, agents and business partners, but this type of non- identifiable and aggregate information does not identify you personally. Modo Labs may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our Services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
In addition to the personal information identified above, we use “cookies” and other statistical and tracking technologies as described in this Section in connection with the operation of our Site. A cookie is a piece of information that our Site sends to your browser, which then stores this information on your system. We may use both temporary and persistent cookies based on the cookie’s purpose. Some cookies are deleted when you close down your browser. These are known as session cookies. Others remain on your device until they expire or you delete them from your cache. These are known as persistent cookies and enable us to remember things about you as a returning visitor to our Covered Sites.
We use these technologies in four ways:
To provide a product or service: A cookie may be used to provide you with a specific product or service. For instance, if you request a Site to remember your login password or remember your profile in a response to a blog post, the site will deposit a cookie on your computer to facilitate that product or service. The information contained in these cookies consists of random data that is used by our server to authenticate the browser requests to the server for that particular session. These cookies do not include any type of personal information. This bit of information is erased when you close your current browser window. If you choose not to accept a temporary cookie, you will not be able to navigate in these online applications. We also use a cookie when you visit our Site and request documentation or a response from us. When you are filling out a form, you may be given the option of having our Site deliver a cookie to your local hard drive. You might choose to receive this type of cookie in order to save time in filling out forms and/or revisiting our Site.
To understand our visitors: When you visit our Site, our systems may automatically collect statistics in aggregate about visitor behavior. We may monitor statistics and other data such as how many people visit our site, the user’s IP address, which pages people visit, how users interact with page content and functionality, from which domains our visitors come, which browsers people use and how they move about our Site. We use this data about your visit for aggregation purposes only. These statistics are used to help us to understand our visitors’ interests and improve the content and performance of our Site. We use this information for statistical and marketing purposes.
We also use a cookie when we track traffic patterns on our Site. Analysis of the collected information by our tracking technologies allows us to improve our Site and the user experience. If you choose not to accept a persistent cookie, you will still be able to use our Site. Even if you choose to receive this type of cookie, you can always set your browser to notify you when you receive any cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it in each situation in which one is sent. We may supplement this unidentified user data with other data to better understand our users. For instance, we may relate a user’s IP address to the company to which it relates to better understand our visitors’ interests.
To advertise: We may tailor our advertisements to certain users based on the user data and related information. You can opt out of this tracking by accessing the link below. You will need to invoke these opt-out procedures on each computer you use.
All major Internet browsers allow you to control cookies. You can learn more about adjusting browser controls at the following website: http://www.aboutcookies.org.

IV. HOW WE USE AND WITH WHOM WE SHARE THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE GATHER
Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties:
Modo Labs, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include an email service provider that sends out mailing information on our behalf and a hosting provider for maintaining our databases. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function. In all cases, we review privacy and security documentation to provide reasonable assurance that entities have appropriate privacy programs. Modo Labs will always have a contract in place with any service provider to further provide assurance of privacy controls, including non-disclosure.
Upon notice, Modo Labs will take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and/or remediate unauthorized or unlawful processing.
Lawful Requests / Legal Requirements:
Modo Labs may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Modo Labs, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
You can use the Site without providing any Personal Data. This will require you to turn off cookies in your browser. In addition, if you choose not to provide any Personal Data, you may not be able to use certain Services, access certain resources, or register for webinars and other events.
Our Site may offer publicly accessible blogs or community forums (“Public Areas”). You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them.
