Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together as follows:
We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.
We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offenses.
We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:
Direct interactions. You may give us your personal data by filling in forms or by corresponding with us by mail, phone, email or otherwise. This includes personal data you provide when you:
Cookies: Automated technologies. As you interact with our websites, we may automatically collect Technical Data about your equipment, browsing actions, including your IP address, and patterns. We will collect this personal data by using cookies, server logs and other similar technologies. A “cookie” is a file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. This will allow us to recognize users and avoid repetitive requests for the same information. A “web beacon” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server. When these automated collection methods are used in our websites, we will obtain “clickstream data,” which is a log of the links and other content on which a visitor clicks while browsing a website. As a website visitor clicks through a website, a record of the action may be collected and stored. Other websites cannot read cookies from our websites. Most browsers will accept cookies until you change your browser settings to refuse them.
Third parties or publicly available sources. We may receive personal data about you from various third parties and public sources, including information provided by our Authorized Partners.
We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data for the following lawful bases:
Generally we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data other than in relation to sending certain direct marketing communications to you via email or text message in jurisdictions where consent is required by law. You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
a. PURPOSES FOR WHICH WE WILL USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We plan to use your personal data for the following purposes:
Note that we may process your personal data for more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data. Please contact us if you need details about the specific legal ground we are relying on to process your personal data where more than one ground has been set out above.
c. CHANGE OF PURPOSE
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please Contact us.
If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
We may have to share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in paragraph 4 above.

We do not sell your information to external third parties for their own marketing purposes. We share your information as follows:
METAORIGIN LABS collects personal data from individuals residing in the US and around the world, including in countries within and outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). If you are a resident of an EEA country or another country outside of the US, please note that METAORIGIN LABS will collect and process your personal data in the US, and may transfer your personal data to, and access your data from, subsidiaries and affiliates in the other countries in which we operate. Many of the internal or external third parties identified in Section 5 are also based outside the EEA, so their processing of your personal data will occur outside the EEA.
HOW LONG WILL YOU USE MY PERSONAL DATA FOR?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data. In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
We have put in place security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
You have the right to:
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please Contact us.
a. NO FEE USUALLY REQUIRED
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
b. WHAT WE MAY NEED FROM YOU
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
c. TIME LIMIT TO RESPOND
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within 30 days. Occasionally it may take us longer than 30 days if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
