We believe that the responsible use of data supports growth and builds strong relationships between brand and consumer. As a business, we are committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of all individuals with whom we interact. We are committed to being transparent in our handling and processing of personal data at all times in accordance with applicable privacy and data protection laws.
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it and the only reasons would be to contact us to hear about our services, join our newsletter, download or sign up to receive content, offer our services, or join our team (we can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason). We don’t share your personal information with anyone except: (i) to third parties who help us provide our marketing or services to you (e.g., calling you to market our services); (ii) to comply with the law; (iii) develop our services, or (iv) protect our rights. We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of one of our services or as specified herein or on our form.
This Privacy Notice explains in detail the types of personal data we may collect about you when you interact with us on any website where this Privacy Notice appears. Quartile is the data controller of any personal data you provide to us, including in relation to this website.
The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) provides California residents with additional rights with respect to their personal information. Those rights are explained below in Section 7 (Your California Rights). This Privacy Notice includes certain disclosures required under CCPA.

Like most website operators, Quartile collects information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Quartile’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Quartile’s visitors use its website. Quartile also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments on blogs if available.

Such browser settings are typically found in the “options”, “tools” or “preferences” menu. You may also consult the browser’s “help” menu.
There are online tools available for clearing all cookies left behind by the websites you have visited, such as www.allaboutcookies.org.

3 – Third Party Service Providers, Employees, Agents, or Contractors
Quartile discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Quartile’s behalf (including to market our services to you) or to provide services available at Quartile’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Quartile’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Quartile will not rent or sell potentially personally- identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone without advance notice. We do share information as described above with our website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to only use this information for the purpose in which Quartile shared it with them.
3.1 – Third-party Disclosure for Joint Marketing Events & Digital Assets
For users in the United States, we sometimes participate in joint marketing events with third parties. On the registration page, it is clear who the other joint marketing party is. If you opt-into a joint marketing event or digital asset in the United States, we may provide your registration information to these third parties & partners for use in marketing and in designing or providing their own services, to send you information about its products and to notify you if you win a contest. You may opt-out of us providing such information by opting out of our email newsletter and/or not registering for joint marketing events. You should contact the other third party directly who may already be sending you messages in order to request that these communications stop, and to review their privacy policies. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
3.2 – To Comply with legal process or to protect Quartile
Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Quartile discloses potentially personally- identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental requests, or when Quartile believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Quartile, third parties or the public at large.
3.3 – Business Transfers
If Quartile, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Quartile goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that are transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of Quartile may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

We describe the personal information we have collected about consumers in the twelve (12) months preceding the effective date of this Privacy Notice in the part of our Privacy Notice titled, “Personal Data Collected” above. The information we collect includes the following:
7.1 – Disclosures of Personal Information for Monetary or Other Valuable Consideration or for Business Purposes
Quartile does not sell your data —we are not data brokers, and we don’t put your data on the open market. However, under the CCPA, some sharing of personal information necessary to provide you with personalized ads and with some of our partners may be considered a “sale,” even if no money is exchanged. In that respect, we have disclosed email addresses and contact information to other businesses and third parties which include our joint marketing partners when we host webinars and events with them within the twelve (12) months preceding the effective date of this Privacy Notice. As is common practice among businesses that operate websites, we may also have disclosed certain online identifiers, information about the use of our website, and inferences drawn about you to our social media, advertising, and analytics partners. We have disclosed personal information in all or substantially all of the categories identified in this Additional Notice for California Resident Consumers for various business purposes.

YOUR CALIFORNIA RIGHTS (CCPA)
This section describes the rights that residents of California have and in other jurisdictions as provided by local law, and how to exercise such rights.
Right to Know about Personal Information Collected, Disclosed, or Sold
You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection, use, disclosure, or sale of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access and Deletion Rights), and subject to certain limitations that we describe below, we will disclose such information. You have the right to request any or all of the following:
Right to Request Deletion
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access and Deletion Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records. However, we may retain personal information that has been de-identified or aggregated. Furthermore, we may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) in order to perform certain actions set forth under CCPA, such as detecting security incidents and protecting against fraudulent or illegal activity.
Exercising Access and Deletion Rights
Only you, or a person or business entity registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf (an “authorized agent”), may make the requests set forth above. You may also make a request on behalf of your minor child.
The request should include your contact information and describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. In addition, you should provide sufficient information (including information that reasonably enables us to verify the identifying information we currently maintain about you) that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected the personal information or an authorized representative.
We will respond to consumer requests in a reasonably timely manner. If we require extra time to respond, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. In order to protect the security of your personal information, we will not honor a request if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. The method used to verify your identity will depend on the type, sensitivity, and value of the information, including the risk of harm to you, posed by any authorized access or deletion. Generally speaking, verification will be performed by matching the identifying information provided by you to the personal information that we already have.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request (and will not be made more than twice in a 12-month period). If we cannot comply with a request, or cannot fully comply with a request, the response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply.
7.2.4 – Right to No Discrimination
We may not discriminate against you because of your exercise of any of the foregoing rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act, including by:
7.3 – Requests to Exercise Your Rights
You may request to exercise the foregoing rights by:
Please note that we may take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to information or acting on your request to exercise your rights, as required or permitted by law. We may limit our response to your exercise of the above rights as permitted by law.
7.4 – Data Sharing for Direct Marketing Purposes
California Civil Code § 1798.83 further permits California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident, you may ask us to refrain from sharing your personal information with certain of our affiliates and other third parties for their marketing purposes. Please tell us your preference by contacting us at email@example.com or by writing us at the address below.
8 – Security
Quartile uses reasonable administrative, logical, physical, and managerial measures to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and unauthorized access, use, and modification. Unfortunately, no measures can be guaranteed to provide 100% security. Accordingly, Quartile cannot guarantee the security of your information.
9 – Sensitive Data
Quartile requests that you do not send us any sensitive data such as social security or national identification numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, health data, biometrics or genetic, criminal background or trade union membership information. If you do send Quartile this information, then you are consenting to its processing in accordance with this privacy notice. To avoid processing of sensitive data, do not submit it.
