Generally, your personal information belongs to you, and you have certain rights related to our processing of your personal information. However, your personal information does not include information which does not relate to an identified or identifiable individual or to personal information or data rendered anonymous in such a manner that the individual is not or no longer identifiable (“Anonymized Data”). We may use Anonymized Data for our own purposes in any manner and without attribution or compensation to any person.
2. Personal Information We Process
We may process a variety of personal information from or about you or your devices from various sources, as described below.
If you do not provide your personal information when requested, you may not be able to use our Services if that personal information is necessary to provide you with our Services or if we are legally required to process it. Where required by applicable law, we indicate whether and why you must provide us with your personal information, as well as the consequences of failing to do so.
A. Personal Information You Provide to Us.
Registration and Profile Information. If you sign up for an account or register to use our Services, we ask you for your name, email address, username, password, and other personal information we may require or request.
Communications. If you contact us directly, we may receive additional personal information about you. For example, when you contact our Customer Support Team using our webform, chat, or Slack, we may receive your name, email address, company, job title, the contents of a message or attachments that you may send to us, and other personal information you choose to provide. If you subscribe to our newsletter, then we will process certain personal information from you, such as your email address. 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.
Customer Data. Customers have control over the types and amounts of data and information processed using the Services. We process all data that customers configure, input, and use within the Services.
Careers. If you decide that you wish to apply for a job with us, you may submit your contact information and your resume online. We will process the personal information you choose to provide on your resume, such as your education and employment experience. You may also apply through other platforms. If you do so, we will process the personal information you make available to us on those platforms and may process information given to us by those platforms.
Payment Information. Payment information is only processed when your use of the Services is subject to the payment of a fee or other charge. Payment information is necessary for us to process your payments for the Services. Payment information may vary depending on the payment method you use but will include information such as:
Date of birth;
Certain credit card information is used to reference a credit card (Please note that we use a third-party provider to process credit card information and process payments. The third party's collection tool may be layered over our Services, so your credit card information may never hit our system at all.);
Address and postal code; and
Mobile phone number (if applicable).
Generally, our lawful basis for processing the personal information you provide us is (1) our contract with you; (2) your consent; or (3) our legitimate interest in improving our Services based on the payment information you provide us.
B. Personal Information We Process When You Use Our Services.
Location Information. When you use our Services, we may infer your more general location information (for example, your IP address may indicate your more general geographic region).
Device Information. We process personal information about the device and software you use to access our Services, including internet protocol (IP) address, web browser type, operating system version, and device identifiers.
Usage Information. To help us understand how you use our Services and to help us improve them, we automatically process personal information about your interactions with our Services, like the pages or other content you view, the searches you conduct, your comments, any content you post and the dates and times of your visits.
When you use our Great Expectations software, our software may process your IP address and event data generated by your use of the Great Expectations software. You can disable our processing of this personal information by modifying the software’s configuration file, as further described at https://docs.greatexpectations.io/docs/reference/usage_statistics/.
Information from Cookies and Similar Technologies. We and third party partners process personal information using cookies, pixel tags, or similar technologies. Our third party partners, such as analytics and advertising partners, may use these technologies to process personal information about your online activities over time and across different services. Cookies are small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to our Services.
Please review your web browser’s “Help” file to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings. Please note that if you delete or choose not to accept cookies from the Services, you may not be able to utilize the features of the Services to their fullest potential.
Generally, our lawful basis for processing your personal information we process when you use our Services is (1) our contract with you; (2) our obligation to provide you with the Services; or (3) our legitimate interest in improving our Services based on the information we process.
C. Personal Information We Process from Third Parties.
Other third parties. We may process additional personal information about you, i.e. demographic data, from third parties such as data or marketing partners, and combine it with other personal information we have about you.
3. How We Use the Information We Process
We use the personal information we process:
To provide, maintain, improve, and enhance our Services;
To communicate with you, provide you with updates and other information relating to our Services, provide information that you request, respond to comments and questions, and otherwise provide customer support;
For marketing purposes, such as developing and providing promotional and advertising materials that may be useful, relevant, valuable or otherwise of interest to you;
To personalize your experience on our Services such as presenting tailored content;
To anonymize personal information processed through the Services, which we may use for any lawful purpose;
To find and prevent fraud, and respond to trust and safety issues that may arise;
For compliance purposes, including enforcing our Terms of Service or other legal rights, or as may be required by applicable laws and regulations or requested by any judicial process or governmental agency; and
For other purposes for which we provide specific notice at the time the personal information is processed.
4. Lawful Basis for Processing
you have consented to the processing of your personal information;
we need your personal information to provide you with the Services as requested by you, or to respond to your queries;
we have a legal obligation to process your personal information; or
we, or a third party, have a legitimate interest in using your personal information (e.g., to improve our Services and for product development purposes).
When you enter into an agreement with us, either by accessing the Services, by executing an agreement in hard copy or by clicking “I Accept” or similar language online, we will process your personal information for the purposes of fulfilling the terms of our contract with you. In that case, our processing of your personal information is based on the contract, so your withdrawal of consent will only be effective after the purposes for processing your personal information have been fulfilled and after we no longer have a legal obligation to keep your personal information.
In all cases, we will comply with applicable law and we will cease processing your personal information after the legal right, obligation, or another lawful basis expires.
Vendors and Service Providers. We may share any personal information we receive with vendors and service providers retained in connection with the provision of our Services.
Marketing. We do not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with nonaffiliated companies for their direct marketing purposes, unless we have your permission.
Analytics Partners. We use analytics services such as Google Analytics to process certain analytics data. These services may also process personal information about your use of other websites, apps, and online resources. You can learn about Google’s practices by going to https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/, and opt-out of them by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Advertising Partners. We work with third party advertising partners to show you ads that we think may interest you. These advertising partners may set and access their own cookies, pixel tags and similar technologies on our Services and they may otherwise process or have access to personal information about you which they may process over time and across different online services. Some of our advertising partners are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (http://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1#!/) or the Digital Advertising Alliance (http://optout.aboutads.info/?c=2\&lang=EN). If you do not wish to receive personalized ads, please visit their opt-out pages to learn about how you may opt out of receiving web-based personalized ads from member companies. You can access any settings offered by your mobile operating system to limit ad tracking, or you can install the AppChoices mobile app to learn more about how you may opt out of personalized ads in mobile apps.
As Required By Law and Similar Disclosures. We may process your personal information if we believe doing so is required or appropriate to: (a) comply with law enforcement requests and legal processes, such as a court order or subpoena; (b) respond to your requests; or (c) protect your, our, or others’ rights, property, or safety. For the avoidance of doubt, the disclosure of your personal information may occur if you post any objectionable content on or through the Services.
Merger, Sale, or Other Asset Transfers. We may disclose and transfer your personal information 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.
Consent. We may also disclose personal information from or about you or your devices with your permission.
If we ever plan to process any of your personal information for any other purposes not identified above and we do not have a separate lawful basis for that new purpose for processing, we will only do so after obtaining your specific consent.

In such circumstances we will provide reasons for the denial to you upon request.
Please also note that if you do opt-out of receiving marketing-related emails from us, we may still send you messages for administrative or other purposes directly relating to your use of the Services, and you cannot opt-out from receiving those messages while continuing to use the Services.
