Our Commitment to Privacy
Throughout this policy, we use the term "personal information" to describe information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify that person. We do not consider personal information any information that has been aggregated and/or anonymized so that it does not identify a specific user.

We also may collect Geolocation Information (defined below). If you do not agree to our collection of this information, you may not be able to use our Service.
If you open a Paperclip account, we may collect the following information from you:
We are committed to providing a safe, secure and all around great service.

Information from Children
The Services are not for use by children under 18. The Services are not directed to children under the age of 13. If we obtain actual knowledge that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will promptly delete it, unless we are legally obligated to retain such data. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe that we have mistakenly or unintentionally collected information from a child under the age of 13.
Do Not Track: Do Not Track ("DNT") is an optional browser setting that allows you to express your preferences regarding tracking by advertisers and other third-parties. We do not respond to DNT signals.
How We Protect & Store Personal Information
We store and process your personal information using third party servers located in data centers in the United States. This information is protected by physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in compliance with applicable US federal and state regulations. We also use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, we enforce physical access controls to our office and files, and we authorize access to personal information only for those employees who require it to fulfill their job responsibilities.
We strive to ensure security on our systems. Despite our efforts, we cannot guarantee that personal information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of our administrative, managerial and technical safeguards. Therefore, we urge you to take adequate precautions to protect your personal data as well, including never sharing your Paperclip password with anyone.
If Gerald learns of a systems security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Services, you agree that Gerald may communicate with you electronically. Gerald may post a notice on the website or mobile application if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice of a security breach), please email us at email@example.com.
How We Use the Personal Information We Collect
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, fun and customized experience. We may use your personal information to:
Analytics Services and Targeted Ads
We use third-party analytics services. These services may track details about your online activities over time and across different sites. These services help us to improve our Service and the products and services that we offer you. These services may also allow us and others to provide you with targeted advertisements or other content that you may be interested in based on your online activities. These services may also allow us and others to provide you with targeted advertisements or other content that you may be interested in based on your online activities. If you would like to learn more about targeted ads that may be based on your online activities, and the choices that you may exercise for certain sites and advertisers, you may wish to visit the Network Advertising Initiative or the Digital Advertising Alliance. You may opt-out of Google Analytics collection by downloading the browser plugin “Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on” here.
How We Share Personal Information Within the Gerald Network
To process payments on Paperclip, we need to share some of your personal information with the company that you are paying. Your contact information, date of sign-up, the number of payments you have received and other verification metrics like social graph activity may be provided to companies when you transact with, on, or through Paperclip.
We work with vendors to enable them to accept payments from you using Paperclip. In doing so, a vendor may share information about you with us, such as your mobile phone number, email address, or Paperclip username, when you attempt to pay that vendor. We use this information to confirm to that vendor that you are a Paperclip customer and that the vendor should enable Paperclip as a form of payment for your purchase.
Regardless, we will not disclose your credit card number or bank account number to anyone you have paid through Paperclip, except with your express permission or if we are required to do so to comply with a subpoena or other legal process.
When we collect credentials for third party applications connected to our Services, we store and process those credentials using a third party service.
How We Share Personal Information with Other Parties
Gerald does not share your personal information with third parties for their promotional or marketing purposes.
We may share your personal information with:
We may disclose “blinded” aggregated data and user statistics to prospective partners and other third parties. Blinded data is data that does not identify an individual person.
We may provide certain parts of our Service in association with third parties, such as promotional partners. These co-branded areas will identify the third party. If you choose to use these co-branded areas, we may share your information with the identified third party, and that third party may also collect information from you, in addition to the information that we collect, as described above. You should review the privacy policies of those identified third parties to understand how they collect and use information.
Third-party Sites & Services
Interactions With Other Sites & Services
Our Service may allow you to use your account from other online services. If you use accounts from other services on our Service, those third parties may share information about you with us, and we may share information that we collect with them. Our Service may also include features from third parties that allow you to interact with other online services, including social media. For example, we may use third parties to allow you to send messages, tweets, or make postings on social media sites, like Facebook. If you use these features, then we may share information about you with those third parties, and they may collect additional information. You should review the privacy policies for such third parties to understand how they collect and use information.
Links To Third-Party Sites
Our Services may contain links to (or allow you to link to) other third-party services or websites. Gerald does not control the information collection of third-party services or websites that can be reached through such links. We encourage our users to be aware when they are linking to a third-party service or website and to read the privacy statements of any third-party service or website that collects personally identifiable information.
Third-Party Tracking And Do Not Track
Third parties may use tracking technologies in connection with our Service, which may include the collection of information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites. This Policy does not apply to these third-party technologies because we may not control them and we are not responsible for them. Do Not Track is a technology that enables users to opt out of tracking by websites they do not visit. Currently, we do not monitor or take any action with respect to Do Not Track technology.
How You Can Access or Change Your Personal Information

California Consumer Privacy Act Notice
California Residents Privacy Rights
We may from time to time elect to share certain information about you collected by us on the Service with third parties for those third parties direct marketing purposes. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents who have supplied personal information, as defined in the statute, to us to, under certain circumstances, to request and obtain certain information regarding our disclosure, if any, of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. California residents have rights to request access to certain personal information collected about them over the past 12 months, or deletion of their personal information, subject to certain exceptions, and may not be discriminated against because they exercise any of their rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act. If this applies, you may obtain the categories of personal information shared and the names and addresses of all third parties that received personal information for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately prior calendar year (e.g. requests made in 2020 will receive information about 2019 sharing activities) or to request to opt-out of such future sharing. To make such a request, please provide sufficient information for us to determine if this applies to you, attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response. We may require you to provide additional personal information to verify your identity before we process your request; we may not process your request if we are unable to verify your identity. You may make this request in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your privacy rights. We will also be modifying this policy to comply with the new California Privacy Rights Act ("CPRA") so check back for updates.
To learn about the categories of personal information that we use, please see the section of this policy called “The Information We Collect.” The personal information that we have collected in the past 12 months falls into the following categories as set out under California law:

Nevada Privacy Rights
Nevada law (SB 220), permits customers in Nevada to opt-out of the sale of certain kinds of personal information. A sale under Nevada law is the transfer of this personal information to third parties for monetary consideration so these third parties can then re-sell or license the sold information. We do not sell your personal information to third parties as defined in Nevada law. If you are a Nevada resident and wish to opt-out of the sale of your personal information should we change our practices in the future, you must send a request by e-mail at email@example.com.
