Will Quirk Disclose Any of the Personal Information It Receives?

We “share” information as defined by California law. We do not rent nor sell your personal information in personally identifiable form to anyone. Additionally, we disclose personal information as described below.

We may disclose your personal information with third parties as described in this section:

Service Providers. We employ service providers to perform tasks on our behalf, and we need to disclose your information with them in order to provide products or services to you; for example, we may use a payment processing company to receive and process any credit card transactions for us. Click here for further information.

When You Request That We Disclose Your Information. We may offer Services, features, or promotions that involve disclosing your information to a third party or with other Quirk users. If you request or agree to have your information disclosed to a third party as part of a feature or Service, we will disclose that information at your request.

Credit Evaluation. If you are extended payment terms, we may disclose aggregated payment performance information to third-party service providers that report on payment performance to Quirk and other businesses.

De-Identified Information. We may provide de-identified, aggregate or anonymized information to our partners, including usage information to help our partners understand how often and in what ways people use our Services, so that they, too, can provide you with an optimal online experience. Before we disclose this information, we take reasonable efforts aligned with industry best practices to ensure that this information cannot identify you.

Advertising on the Quirk Platform. We may allow advertisers and/or merchant partners (“Advertisers”) to choose the demographic information of users who will see their advertisements and/or promotional offers. You agree that we may provide any of the information we have collected from you in non-personally identifiable form to an Advertiser, in order for that Advertiser to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements and/or offers. For example, we might use the fact you are located in San Francisco to show you ads or offers for San Francisco businesses, but we will not tell such businesses who you are. Or, we might allow Advertisers to display their ads to users with similar usage patterns to yours, but we will not disclose usage information to Advertisers except in aggregate form, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. Note that if an advertiser asks us to show an ad to a certain audience or audience segment and you respond to that ad, the advertiser may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they were trying to reach.

Third-party Advertising. We want to make sure that our advertising is relevant and interesting to you and our other users. To achieve this, we use specialized third-party advertising companies, including companies that collect data about you in order to build a profile of your preferences based on your activities when you visit or use the Services. We also use these companies to automatically collect data from you when you use the Services in order to help us identify the ads that are served to you and what you do after seeing those ads. When you enter your email address or similar details through our Services (either to log in, or to sign up for a service, newsletter, or similar) we may disclose personal or other information that we collect from you, such as your email (in a hashed form) or other unique identifiers, to third-party technology companies that help us personalize our services to you (including our ads). For example, we may use Meta’s custom audience and conversion offerings and disclose your email address and other identifiers in a protected format with Meta so that we can: include you in a custom audience so we will serve relevant advertising content to on Meta platforms; or create an audience of other Meta users based on the information in your profile (i.e., Instagram or Facebook platform). You can manage the data which is disclosed by such third parties with us by amending your preferences, using the privacy settings which these third parties provide on their platforms. For further information relating to our third-party partners or to opt-out of such sharing of your information please reach out to us via [privacy@shopquirkla.com](mailto:privacy@shopquirkla.com).

User Profiles and Submissions. Certain user profile information, including your name, location, and any video or image content that such user has uploaded to the Services, may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within the Services or address your request for our services. Your account privacy settings may allow you to limit the other users who can see the personal information in your user profile and/or what information in your user profile is visible to others. Please remember that any content you upload to your public user profile, along with any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose online in a manner other users can view (on discussion boards, in messages and chat areas, etc.) becomes publicly available, and can be collected and used by anyone. Your user name may also be displayed to other users if you send messages or comments or upload images or videos through the Services and other users can contact you through messages and comments.

Business Transfers. We may choose to buy or sell assets, and may disclose and/or transfer customer information in connection with the evaluation of and entry into such transactions. Also, if we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, personal information could be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.

Protection of Company and Others. We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we reasonably believe is necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Company, our employees, our users, or others.

International Data Transfers

We may transfer information about you anywhere in the world, including transferring information we collect about you to recipients outside of the EEA or the United Kingdom, including to the United States where our global headquarters are located. These countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. When we transfer or disclose your personal information to other countries, we will protect that information as described in this Privacy Policy.

We comply with applicable legal requirements providing adequate safeguards for the transfer of personal information to countries other than the country where you are located. We may transfer personal information to countries for which Adequacy Decisions have been issued, use contractual protections for the transfer of personal information, such as the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses, a vendor’s Binding Corporate Rules or by rely on such other data transfer mechanisms as available under applicable data protection laws, and where necessary, by implementing further organizational, contractual and technical supplement measures in order to ensure the effectiveness of the transfer mechanisms. You may contact us as specified in the sections below to obtain a copy of the safeguards we use to transfer Personal Information outside of the EEA or the United Kingdom.
