Please read this Privacy Policy carefully before you start to use the Site or Service to understand  our policies and practices regarding how we treat your information. By accessing or using the Site  or Service or by accepting (including by clicking to accept or agree when the option is made  available to you) any Swell terms and conditions that incorporate this Privacy Policy, you accept

Your User Contributions are  transmitted to others at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users of the Site  with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. Therefore, we cannot and do not  guarantee that your User Contributions will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. 

Automated Collection 

When you navigate through and interact with the Site, we may use automatic data collection  technologies to collect Personal Information and/or Communications Data. 

In addition, we use third-party web analytics services to help us understand your use of the Site  and the popularity of certain content so we can improve your experience. For more information  on our use of third-party analytics services, see Third Party Providers below.

Some content or applications on the Site are served by third parties, including content and  application providers. These third parties may use cookies alone or in conjunction with web  beacons or other tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use our Site.  The information they collect may be associated with your Personal Information or they may collect  information, including Personal Information, about your online activities over time and across  different websites and other online services.

Swell takes protecting your information seriously and implements reasonable measures to secure  your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration,  and disclosure. However, the safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where  we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to the Service or certain  parts of the Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to  share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public  areas of the Site like message or comment boards. The information you share in public areas  may be viewed by any user of the Site. 

Please note that the electronic transmission of information is not completely secure. We cannot  guarantee that the security measures we have in place to safeguard Data and/or other information  will never be defeated or fail, or that such measures will always be sufficient or effective. Any  transmission of Data and/or other information is at your own risk. 

Information and Data Transfers 

The Service is administered by Swell in the United States. When we obtain information about you  through your access to or use of the Site or Service or when you input or import Data to the Service from somewhere other than the United States, we may transfer, process, and store such  information and Data in the United States. If you access the Site and/or Service from outside the  United States, you do so on your own initiative, at your sole risk, and you are responsible for  compliance with all applicable laws. If you are a non-United States resident and provide us with  your Personal Information, or if you use the Service, you consent to the transfer to and processing  of such information and any Data in the United States, which may have data protection laws less  stringent than those in the country in which you reside.

We strive to provide you with choices regarding the Personal Information you provide to us. We  have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information: 

Cookies. You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when  cookies are being sent. If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of the Site  and the Service may then be inaccessible or not function properly. 

Electronic Messages from Swell. Swell sends billing information, information about products or services, support information, Service updates, Service notifications, and other items to you via Electronic Messages. Promotional Electronic Messages will contain instructions describing how you can opt out of receiving future promotional communications from us.

contact the Swell customer responsible for sending the Electronic Messages with any questions,  comments, or complaints about any such Electronic Messages.

How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals 

Your web browser may let you choose your preference as to whether you want to allow the  collection of information about your online activities over time and across different websites or  online services. At this time, the Service does not respond to the preferences you may have set  in your web browser regarding such collection of your information, and we may continue to collect  information in the manner described in this Privacy Policy. 

Third Party Applications and Websites 

The Site and/or Service may contain links enabling the electronic transfer of data from third-party  applications to the Site or Service, as well as links to third-party websites. Swell is not responsible  for the privacy practices or content of these applications or websites and linking to an application  or website does not constitute endorsement by us of that application or website. You should  review the privacy policy and terms and conditions of any such third-party application or website  prior to using or providing information to the same. 

Accessing and Correcting Your Information 

Your Personal Information is accessible through and may be reviewed and changed by logging  in to your user account. You may also send us an email at compliance@swellcx.com to request  access to, correct, or delete any Personal Information that you have provided to us.

Your European Privacy Rights 

If you are a resident of the European Union, you are entitled to certain information and have  certain rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (the  “GDPR”). Those rights include:

Further, if you are  located in the European Union, we will never share your information with a third party for such  third party’s marketing purposes, unless you have specifically consented to us doing so.

Furthermore, if you believe that our processing of your information is inconsistent with your data  protection rights under the GDPR and we have not adequately addressed your concerns, you  have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection supervisory authority of your country.

For purposes of the GDPR, we are a “controller” and you are a “data subject.”
