We may collect a variety of information from or about you or your devices from various sources, as described below.

When we send you emails, we may track whether you open them to learn how to deliver a better customer experience and improve our Services.

For the avoidance of doubt, the disclosure of information about you may occur if you post any objectionable content on or through the Services.
Merger, Sale, or Other Asset Transfers. We may disclose and transfer information about you to service providers, advisors, potential transactional partners, or other third parties in connection with the consideration, negotiation, or completion of a corporate transaction in which we are acquired by or merged with another company or we sell, liquidate, or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets.

If you choose not to provide us with information we collect, some features of our Services may not work as intended.
We make reasonable efforts to protect your information by using physical and electronic safeguards designed to improve the security of the information we maintain. However, as our Services are hosted electronically, we can make no guarantees as to the security or privacy of your information.
If you are a California resident under the age of 18 and you wish to remove content that you posted (for example, content you posted on a class discussion board), you may submit a request by contacting the course instructor or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Removing the public content does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information.
