Module adheres to the following policies with regard to Your privacy.
- “NPI” is information that is not personally identifiable and that is obtained through Your use of the Service.
- “PII” is non-public information that is personally identifiable and obtained in connection with providing a product or service to You, including personally identifiable information You provide during the registration process or during Your use of the Service. It may include information such as name and address that You provide to Module. PII does not include information that has been made anonymous or aggregated so that it can no longer be used, whether in combination with other information or otherwise, to contact or identify You.
- HOW MODULE SENDS INFORMATION TO YOU
- As part of the Service, Module may send You this information through SMS text messages, email, or other channels.
- To receive information from Module through SMS text messages, You must provide us with Your mobile phone number and respond to the SMS text message that Module sends to that number as part of the verification process. Your mobile phone carrier’s standard messaging rates will apply. If You opt-in to receive SMS text messages from Module, You will receive one (1) to twenty (20) text messages per week. You may opt-out of and opt-in to receiving these text messages at any time by texting “STOP.”
- Module may also send You information through email, or other channels. You may opt-out of receiving emails from us through email by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link contained in each email.
- INFORMATION COLLECTION
- When You use the Service, Module collects NPI, for example, Your device’s browser type. Likewise, in order to offer You meaningful products and services and for other reasons, Module may collect PII about You from the following sources:
- Information transmitted from Your mobile device, including information described in Section 3(d) below; or
- Information You create or Information You give Module on applications or other forms while using the Service; or
- Information You send Module via any medium, including, but not limited to email, telephone, and social media interaction.
In order to use certain portions of the Service, You must provide Module the following information: email address, and first and last name, and create a password. In addition, You may choose to add additional information to Your account, for example an estimated budget. Module may request other information from You during or after the registration process that Module uses to provide better and more customized services to its customers.
Module may also use web beacons, pixels, anonymous ad network tags, cookies and similar technologies to collect NPI about Your use of the Service and the websites of selected sponsors and advertisers, to collect anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for advertisers, and to collect data related to Your use of special promotions or newsletters. The information collected by web beacons also allows Module to statistically monitor how many people open Module’s emails and for what purposes these actions are being taken. Module’s web beacons are not used to track Your activity outside of the Service or the websites of Module’s sponsors. In addition, Your web browser requests advertisements and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these networks can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if You had requested a web page from their site. Module may link NPI from web beacons, cookies, and related technologies collected during Your use of the Service to Your PII.
- Log Files, IP Addresses and Information About Your Device
When You use the Service, Module may automatically receive the URL of the site from which You came and the site to which You are going when You leave Module’s Service. Module also receives the IP address (and approximate city based on same) of Your computer (or the proxy server You use to access the internet), Your computer operating system and type of web browser You are using, email patterns (e.g., email open statistics), Your mobile device, including Your Unique Device Identifier (“UDID”) and mobile operating system, as well as the name of Your ISP or Your mobile carrier. The link between Your IP address and Your PII is not shared with third parties without Your permission, except as described in Section 8 (“When Module May Disclose Your Information”), below.
Do Not Track: Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have his or her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many website operators, including Module, do not respond to DNT signals.

In line with this belief, Module does not knowingly collect or maintain PII from the Service from persons under eighteen (18) years of age, and no part of the Service is directed to persons under eighteen (18) years of age. If You are under eighteen (18) years of age, then please do not use or access the Service at any time in any manner.

- GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR)
- Module’s policy is to protect and safeguard any PII obtained by Module in accordance with applicable United States state and federal laws governing the protection of PII and data. Those who choose to access the Service from locations outside the United States do so on their own initiative, and are responsible for compliance with local laws if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
- Module does not target or knowingly collect data from users in the EU. If You are an EU or United Kingdom resident and believe Module may have collected PII from You, subject, as the case may be, to additional elements that may be required to establish Your identity, You may send Module an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to request, at no charge, to delete any information Module may have collected from You.
- HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR INFORMATION

In practice, Module deletes or anonymizes Your PII upon deletion of Your account, unless:
- Module must keep it to comply with applicable law;
- Module must keep it to evidence our compliance with applicable law;
- there is an outstanding issue, claim or dispute requiring us to keep the relevant information until it is resolved; or
- the information must be kept for our legitimate business interests, such as fraud prevention and enhancing users’ safety and security. For example, information may need to be kept to prevent a user who was banned for unsafe behavior or security incidents from opening a new account.
Keep in mind that even though Module’s systems are designed to carry out data deletion processes according to the above guidelines, Module cannot promise that all data will be deleted within a specific timeframe due to technical constraints.
