2.Personal Information We Collect
We need to collect and use information about you in the course of providing our Services. The types of personal information that we receive or collect will depend on how you use the Services. We require certain information to deliver our Services and without we will not be able to provide our Services to you. For example, you must provide your email address to create an account to use our Platform. Our Services have optional features, which, if used by you, may require us to collect additional information to provide such features. You will be notified of such a collection, as appropriate. If you choose not to provide the information needed to use a feature, you will be unable to use the feature.
The personal information we collect about you falls into the following categories:
Information you provide to us: We collect certain information from you when you use our Services, including when you create an account, host or attend events on our Platform, create or share content and interact with and communicate with others using our Services. This includes:
If we ask you to provide any other personal information not described above, then the personal information we will ask you to provide, and the reasons why we ask you to provide it, will be made clear to you at the point we collect the information.

We use this information to provide our Services, ensure the security of our Services and help improve our Services. This typically includes:

5.Lawful Basis for Processing (European Individuals Only)
If you are located in the European Economic Area or the United Kingdom, we need a lawful basis to collect, use and disclose your personal information. Our lawful basis will depend on the information concerned and the context in which it is processed.
We may process your personal information in order to perform a contract with you (such as to create and maintain your account and process your profile information). In other circumstances, we may process your information where the processing is in our legitimate interests and those interests are not overridden by your rights and freedoms (such as to communicate with you about information relating to our services, monitor and analyze usage trends, and personalize and improve our Services).
If you have questions about the lawful basis on which we collect, use and disclose your personal information, please contact us using the contact details below.
6.Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Your browser or device may include "Do Not Track" functionality. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret Do Not Track signals, we do not currently respond to "Do Not Track" signals. However, you can opt out from the use of tracking technologies as explained in our Cookie Notice.
Google Analytics: We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google") to help analyze how people use our Services, compile reports and improve the quality and relevance of our Services. The information generated by Google Analytics is transmitted to and stored by Google and is subject to Google’s privacy policies.

7.International Data Transfers
EKOS is a US company and our service providers are located in the US and other countries. This means that your personal information may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are located. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country (and, in some cases, may not be as protective).
We retain personal information so long as we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with the Services or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements). When we no longer have an ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
9.Your Privacy Choices
You can access and control the personal information that we process about you as follows:
We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their privacy rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.

In that context, they are the controller responsible for your personal information and you should contact the relevant Organization if you have any questions or concerns about their privacy practices.
