13.           DISPUTE RESOLUTION SYSTEM

13.1        Governing Law

These Terms and any and all claims, disputes or other legal proceedings by or between you and us, including but not limited to any claims or disputes that are in any way related to or arising out of these Terms or your use of or access to the Service, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with U.S. federal law and the laws of Colorado, without regard to any principles of conflicts of law.

13.2        Arbitration

ALL DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THESE TERMS OR ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND SCHWAZZE, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, WILL BE RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION BEFORE A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR. YOU AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED AND YOU ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP THE ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (currently available at http://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Consumer_Rules_Web_0.pdf). The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held in Denver County, Denver, United States, unless you and Schwazze otherwise agree in writing. The arbitrator’s decision will follow the terms of this Agreement and will be final and binding.

13.3        Irreparable Harm

Notwithstanding Section 13.2, you acknowledge that unauthorized use of the Service or other breach of these Terms could result in immediate and irremediable damage to Schwazze, and that money damages alone would be inadequate to compensate Schwazze. Therefore, in the event of your breach or threatened breach of any provision of these Terms, Schwazze may, in addition to all other remedies, immediately obtain and enforce injunctive relief prohibiting the breach or compelling specific performance.

14.           GENERAL PROVISIONS

No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship is created or exists between you and Schwazze or our affiliates unless expressly stated in another agreement.

14.2        Waivers

The failure of either party to exercise any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. For any waiver of compliance with these Terms to be binding, we must provide you with written notice of such waiver through one of our authorized representatives. However, such waiver of any provision of these Terms shall not be considered a waiver of any other provision or of our right to require strict observance of each of the terms herein.

14.3        Entire Agreement

These Terms constitute the full agreement in respect of your use of the Service, and supersede any other communication, understanding or agreement between you and Schwazze concerning the Service.

14.4        Severability

If any provision of these Terms is deemed to be unenforceable or invalid by any court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction, for any reason, that provision will be limited or severed to the extent necessary so that these Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect.

14.5        Assignments

You may not assign or transfer the Terms or any licenses and rights discussed herein. Any attempt by you to assign, transfer, delegate or sublicense the Terms, or any part thereof, without such consent will be null and void.

Subject to the foregoing, the Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.

All notices we are required to give you may be delivered electronically by email or through the Website.

We intend to keep your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including to satisfy legal and reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and applicable legal requirements.

We process and store your data for the duration of the relevant commercial business relationship. This includes the performance of our services.

We are subject to various retention and documentation obligations arising from the relevant local data protection laws. The periods and deadlines for retention and/or documentation set out in some applicable laws/regulations can extend up to ten years beyond the end of the contractual or pre-contractual legal relationship. Special statutory provisions may require longer retention.

In some circumstances you may ask us to delete your personal data.  If the data is no longer required to meet contractual or statutory obligations and rights, it is regularly deleted unless its further processing - for a limited period - is necessary to fulfil the purposes listed in this policy, for example, due to an overriding legitimate interest. Such an overriding legitimate interest is deemed to be the case, for example, if it is not possible to delete the data as a result of a special type of storage, or because it is only possible at an unreasonably great expense and processing for other purposes is excluded by appropriate technical and organizational measures.

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.

8. Your Rights When Making Your Personal Data Available to Us

COOKIE POLICY
Last updated: April 16, 2020
At Schwazze, we believe in being transparent about how we collect and use data. This cookie policy (this “Cookie Policy” is designed to inform you about our use of cookies, local storage objects and similar technologies. For ease of reference, unless otherwise stated below, we will use the term “cookies” in this Cookie Policy to refer to all of these technologies. This Cookie Policy is part of our Privacy Policy, which also includes additional details about our collection and use of information. Capitalized terms used in this Cookie Policy but not defined have the same meaning as in our Privacy Policy.
1.              Overview
As you navigate through and interact with our Website, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns, including:
a.              Details of your visits to our Website, including traffic data, location data, logs, and other communication data and the resources that you access and use on the Website.
b.              Information about your computer and internet connection, including your IP address, operating system, and browser type.
By continuing to visit or use our Website, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes described in this Cookie Policy.
2.              Why Do we Use Cookies?
The information we collect automatically is only statistical data and does not include personal information, but we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties. It helps us to improve our Website and to deliver a better and more personalized service, including by enabling us to:
a.              Estimate our audience size and usage patterns.
b.              Store information about your preferences, allowing us to customize our Website according to your individual interests.
c.              Speed up your searches.
d.              Recognize you when you return to our Website.
We do not collect personal information automatically, but we may tie this information to personal information about you that we collect from other sources or you provide to us.
3.              What Cookies Do We Collect?
A cookie is a small text file that stores Internet settings. Almost every website uses cookie technology. The cookie is downloaded by your Internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you visit this website from the same device, the cookie and the information in it are either sent back to the originating website (first-party cookies) or to another website to which it belongs (third-party cookies). By that, the website can detect that it has already been opened using this browser, and in some cases it will then vary the content it shows.
Some cookies are extremely useful because they can improve your user experience when you return to a website you have already visited. This assumes that you are using the same device and the same browser as before; if so, cookies will remember your preferences, will know how you use the website, and will adapt the content you are shown so that it is more relevant to your personal interests and needs.
Based on what function cookies have and the purpose for which cookies are used, there are different categories of cookies we may use on the Website: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, marketing cookies, and web beacons.
3.1           Strictly necessary cookies
These are cookies that are essential to fulfil an action requested by you, such as identifying you as being logged in. If you prevent these cookies by adjusting your browser settings we cannot guarantee how our website will perform during your visit. These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. Your consent is not required for the use of strictly necessary cookies.
3.2           Performance cookies
These are cookies used to improve our website, for example, for analytics that let us see how a website is being used and where to make improvements, including the number of visitors, where visitors have come from to the website and the pages visited. These cookies do not save information that would allow the user to be identified. The collected information is aggregated, and therefore anonymous. These cookies are used exclusively to improve the performance of the website, and with it the user experience.
3.3           Functionality cookies
These cookies enable a website to save information which has already been entered (such as user names, languages choices, and your location), so that it can offer you improved and more personalized functions. Functional cookies are also used to enable features you request such as playing videos. These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track your movements on other websites.
3.4           Targeting and advertising cookies
These cookies track browsing habits and are used to deliver targeted (interest-based) advertising. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They remember whether you have visited a website or not, and this information can be shared with other organizations such as advertisers. Cookies for improving group targeting and advertising will often be linked to site functionality provided by other organizations.
3.5           Web Beacons
Web beacons are small, transparent graphic images that are delivered through a web browser or HTML e-mail.  Web beacons may include GIF or PNG images, pixels, javascript, or other tags, which are used to track visitor activity on a particular website, or the viewing of a particular e-mail. We may also use other tracking mechanisms such as web beacons to collect marketing statistics.
4.              Third-Party Use of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Some content or applications, including advertisements, on the Website are served by third-parties, including advertisers, ad networks and servers, content providers, and application providers. These third parties may use cookies alone or in conjunction with web beacons or other tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use our website. The information they collect may be associated with your personal information or they may collect information, including personal information, about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based (behavioral) advertising or other targeted content.
We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.
5.              Your Choices
You may at any time “opt out” of Schwazze’s use of cookies, web beacons or other tracking mechanisms through your browser settings. However, disabling such features may prevent you from using certain features or taking full advantage of all of our offerings on our website.
6.              Do Not Track
Do Not Track is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. Some newer Internet browsers have incorporated Do Not Track features, and when turned on, they send a signal to the websites you visit, telling the website that you do not want to be tracked while browsing. Our website does not respond to the browser Do Not Track signal. Thus, most cookies will continue to be stored until you choose to delete them.
7.              Your California Privacy Rights
Please visit the Privacy Notice to learn more about your California privacy rights.
8.              General
For more information about the cookies we may use, please contact privacy@schwazze.com.
We store this cookie data until the end of the term of a particular cookie or until the cookies are deleted by you.

  1. Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights

You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will disclose to you:

  1. The categories of personal information we collected about you.

    2. disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

  7. Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  1. Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform our contract with you.

  2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.

  6. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.

  7. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.

  8. Comply with a legal obligation.

  9. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

  10. Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

•           Emailing us at privacy@schwazze.com.

•           Visiting https://www.schwazze.com.

•           Calling us at (303) 371-0387.

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  1. Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, which may include: first and last name, email address, phone number, mailing address, physical address, company.

  2. Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

  1. Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to ninety days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

  1. Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  1. Deny you goods or services.

  2. Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.

  3. Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.

  4. Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.

  1. CCPA Data Rights Are Not Available for Certain Personal Information

CCPA data rights are not available for personal information we collect about you in the course of you acting as a job applicant to or an employee, owner, director, officer, or contractor of Schwazze, including, in these contexts, your emergency contact information and personal information that is necessary for us to retain to administer benefits for another person relating to you acting as a job applicant to or an employee, owner, director, officer, or contractor of Schwazze. Any personal information we collect and use will only be used within the context of your role or former role in these capacities.
