Please read this Policy carefully to understand how we handle your information. By browsing the Site or using the Services, you acknowledge that you have read and understand this Policy and that we collect, use, and disclose your information as set forth below.
If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or the United Kingdom (“UK”), please see section 12 (Notice for EEA and UK residents) below for information specific to you.
1. Scope of this Policy
This Policy covers our treatment of the information that we collect when you use the Services. It also applies to information collected offline, for example through customer service calls or at an event. This Policy does not apply to the practices of entities that we do not own or control, individuals that we do not employ or manage, or other websites or digital services to which this Policy does not link.
2. Information we collect
We may collect the following types of information about you:
3. How we use your information

We may combine information that we collect from and about you (including automatically generated information) with information that we obtain about you from third parties and use such combined information in accordance with this Policy.
We may aggregate, de-identify and/or anonymize any information collected through the Services so that such information is no longer reasonably capable of being associated with you. We may use such information for any purpose and share such information for any purpose with any third parties, in our discretion.
4. How we disclose information
We disclose the information described above as follows:
5. Your Choices
Cookies and similar technologies. When you interact with the Services, we (and third parties acting on our behalf) may automatically collect certain information about your browser, device, and use of the Services through cookies and other similar technologies. Cookies are small text files stored on your browser or device, which allow us to provide certain features of the Services, personalize your user experience, and advertise our Services to you. You can find more information about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org.
Your browser may allow you to manage your cookies and local storage. Because each browser is a little different, we encourage you to check your browser’s “Help” feature to learn how to manage cookies. For more information about managing cookies, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/. Please note that if you block or otherwise reject cookies or other similar technologies, certain features of the Services may not function as expected.
Tailored advertising. We may engage third parties to serve tailored advertisements for our Services on our behalf on third-party websites and applications. You have certain choices about how your information is used for this purpose.
“Do not track” signals. “Do-not-track” (“DNT”) is a setting offered by some browsers. DNT signals are not yet uniform, so Inflection, like many other website operators, does not currently recognize or respond to DNT signals.
Social media. To control the information you share with us when you follow us, like our posts, or otherwise interact with us on social media, you can adjust your social media account settings related to how your information is shared.
Marketing communications. You may opt out of our marketing communications by email, direct mail, and phone at any time. You may opt out as follows:
SMS/Text messages. If you provide us with your mobile phone number and consent, we may send you SMS/text messages for marketing purposes. To opt out of marketing text messages, reply “STOP” to our marketing text messages. This will not prevent us from sending you SMS/text messages for non-marketing purposes; for example, if we enable two-factor authentication, and you enable this feature on your account and choose to receive a code by text message, we may still send you such codes.
Push notifications. If you opt in to receive push notifications, we will send you push notifications. If you no longer wish to receive these types of communications, you may turn them off through your device settings.
We take physical, administrative, and technical steps to help protect your information. While we take efforts to protect the integrity and security of our network and systems, no security measures are perfect, so we cannot guarantee the security of your information.
You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your account by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a complex password, and keeping your login credentials private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any unauthorized account activity. You are responsible for all activity that takes place under your account, including any unauthorized activity.
In addition, by using the Services, you agree not to knowingly or intentionally compromise the security of the Services by, for example, uploading files that contain viruses, malware, bugs, Trojan horses, or any other form of technology that could impair the security or functionality of the Services.
7. Data retention
As a general matter, we retain your information for as long as you keep an account with us. In certain situations, we will delete your information after it is no longer needed to provide a feature or service. We also keep information, including information submitted by individuals without an account, for as long as necessary for our legitimate business interests and/or as needed or permitted for legal reasons.
8. Your rights
Depending on your jurisdiction of residence, you may have the right to make certain requests of us regarding your information, including the right to request access, correction, deletion, or certain information about the information we hold about you.
To request to exercise a right that you are granted under your jurisdiction’s law, please email us at email@example.com. Please explain the right you want to exercise and the data with respect to which you want to exercise that right. We will respond to your requests required by applicable law. We may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and process your request. Applicable law may require or permit us to decline your request.
If you are an EEA or UK resident, please see section 12 (Notice for EEA and UK residents) below for more information on your rights.
9. Third-party links and content
The Services may have links to third-party websites, apps, or communities that may have privacy policies that differ from ours. We are not responsible for the practices of such sites, apps, or communities. You should check third parties’ privacy policies before interacting with third party websites, apps, or communities and providing third parties with your information.
Likewise, the Services may have third-party content, for example, in posts in the Community. We do not make any representations concerning the accuracy of such information and are not responsible in any way for third-party content on our Services. You interact with third-party content at your own risk.
10. Children’s privacy
The Services are not intended for children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect any “personal information” (as defined in the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act or “COPPA”) from children under 13. If we learn that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information, we will delete such information in accordance with applicable law.
11. Notice for non-United States residents and consent to transfers
Inflection and our computer systems are based in the United States, so we will process your information in the United States, where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. To understand your rights with regard to your data, please visit the website of the appropriate data protection authority for your region. By using the Services, you agree to this Policy and you understand and agree to the transfer of your information to the United States and to the processing of that information as described in this Policy.
Where required, we will use appropriate safeguards for transferring the data of residents of the EEA or UK. This includes signing Standard Contractual Clauses that govern the transfers of such data. For non-EEA/UK residents, we will transfer your data in accordance with applicable law.
12. Notice for EEA and UK residents
This section only applies to Users who are residents of the EEA or UK. For purposes of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the UK GDPR, Inflection is a data controller as defined in these laws with regard to any data we collect directly from and about you that can be used to personally identify you (“Personal Data”). We are a Processor with regard to Personal Data that we process on behalf of our customers, and this Policy does not govern the Personal Data we process on behalf of our customers. Please contact the appropriate customer for details on how they process your Personal Data.
Legal basis for processing. As explained above, we use Personal Data in various ways depending on your use of and/or participation in our Services. We may process your Personal Data in reliance on one or more of the following legal bases, depending on the circumstances: (1) with your consent; (2) as necessary to perform our agreement to provide services; (3) where required by applicable law; or (4) where we have a legitimate interest.
Your rights. EEA and UK residents have the right to request:
To request to exercise any of these rights, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . As mentioned above, we will respond to your requests as required by applicable law. Applicable law may permit or require us to deny all or part of your request.
We encourage you to contact us directly and allow us to work with you to address any concerns you might have about our privacy practices. However, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a competent data protection supervisory authority if you consider that the processing of Personal Data relating to you infringes applicable data protection laws. If you are a UK resident, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office. If you are an EEA resident, you can find the relevant supervisory authority here: https://ec.europa.eu/justice/article-29/structure/data-protection-authorities/index_en.htm.
