When we process personal data about you to perform our obligations under a contract with you or comply with legal requirements, failure to provide such data may prevent or delay our fulfillment of these obligations.

- Persons to whom we are required by law to provide information, such as pursuant to a subpoena or a court order.

We may share aggregate, anonymous, or anonymized demographic, statistical, and other information regarding use of our offerings with third parties for marketing, analytics, planning, and other purposes. Such information will not specifically identify any particular user.
How Does eVolve Protect Your Data?
We maintain a combination of reasonable and appropriate physical, administrative, and technological controls to protect your data from unauthorized access or malicious actions.
We take reasonable steps to limit the access employees, contractors, and agents of eVolve have to your personal data to those who need to know this data to perform their assigned functions.
However, no electronic transmission over the internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat our security and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your information.
How Can You Safeguard Your Own Personal Information?
You should carefully protect the personal information you provide to us, including passwords, user names, location, images and videos, so that third parties can’t manipulate your account or assume your identity.
What Rights And Choices Do You Have?
You have the right to access, update, delete, receive a copy of, or restrict our use of your personal data. When we process personal data based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw consent any time.
Please log-in to your account to manage your personal data and content using our applications. You can also delete your personal data and close your account. We may retain certain data about you for legal and internal business purposes, such as fraud prevention, in accordance with applicable laws.
Certain jurisdictions grant individuals additional rights with respect to their personal data. Depending on where you live or applicable law, you may also have the right to:
- Object to our processing of your personal data
- Have us block or anonymize your personal data, as appropriate
- Receive a copy of your personal data to transfer it to a third party

These rights may be limited in some circumstances by local law.

To exercise applicable rights, please contact us.
Where we process personal data on behalf of our customers, we may refer the request to the relevant customer and cooperate with their handling of the request, subject to any special contractual arrangement with that customer.
Canada residents, please read the “Your Canada Privacy Rights” section for additional disclosures and information regarding your rights under Canada law.
California residents, please read the “Your California Privacy Rights” section for additional disclosures and information regarding your rights under California law.
What Are eVolve’s Storage And Data Retention Practices?
We may store your personal data and content on our servers and the servers of our service providers. Because we may, and our service providers may, maintain servers in global locations, your personal data may be transferred across national borders and stored on the servers outside of your country or region. For transfers of personal data from the European Economic Area (EEA) to countries not considered adequate by the European Commission, we will prior to transfer put in place adequate measures, such as the standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission, to protect personal data.
We will retain your personal data for as long as necessary to provide you with the offerings that you are using or have requested, for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, and as needed to comply with our legal obligations. Data may persist in copies made for backup and business continuity purposes for additional time.

Who Can I Contact With Questions Or Concerns?
We are committed to working with you to obtain a fair resolution of any complaint or concern about privacy. If, however, you believe that we have not been able to assist with your complaint or concern, you have a right to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority of the United States of America (www.ftc.gov) and/or with a competent European supervisory authority, such as the European Commission (https://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/bodies/authorities/index_en.htm) or your local equivalent.
Your Canada Privacy Rights
Canadian law allows eVolve to process your personal information if you have given us specific permission (i.e., express consent) to use your personal information for a specific purpose, or in situations where your permission can be inferred (i.e., implied consent). You can withdraw your consent at any time.
In some exceptional cases, we may be legally permitted under applicable law to process your information without your consent, including, for example:
- If collection is clearly in the interests of an individual and consent cannot be obtained in a timely way
- For investigations and fraud detection and prevention
- For business transactions provided certain conditions are met
- If it is contained in a witness statement and the collection is necessary to assess, process, or settle an insurance claim
- For identifying injured, ill, or deceased persons and communicating with next of kin
- If we have reasonable grounds to believe an individual has been, is, or may be victim of financial abuse
- If it is reasonable to expect collection and use with consent would compromise the availability or the accuracy of the information and the collection is reasonable for purposes related to investigating a breach of an agreement or a contravention of the laws of Canada or a province
- If disclosure is required to comply with a subpoena, warrant, court order, or rules of the court relating to the production of records
- If it was produced by an individual in the course of their employment, business, or profession and the collection is consistent with the purposes for which the information was produced
- If the collection is solely for journalistic, artistic, or literary purposes
- If the information is publicly available and is specified by the regulations
Your California Privacy Rights
California law treats certain disclosures of personal information with third parties in exchange for something of value as “sales,” even when no money changes hand. eVolve does not exchange your personal information for money. However, some of the technologies we use to provide our offerings involve transfers of personal information that may be considered a “sale” under California law. You have the right to opt-out of these transfers by emailing us at privacy.questions@eVolvemep.com.
We described several types of rights in “What Rights and Choices Do You Have?” above. If you reside in California, you have rights to access the specific pieces of your information, the right to know details about our processing of your information, the right to request deletion of your personal information, and the right to not be denied goods or services for exercising these rights. You can exercise those rights by emailing us at privacy.questions@eVolvemep.com.
We may need to verify your identity before completing your California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) rights request. How we verify your identity depends on whether you hold an account with eVolve:
- Individuals with eVolve accounts can verify their identity by logging into their account.
- Individuals without eVolve accounts (non-accountholders) will need to provide information establishing their identity to the degree of certainty required by law. We may ask non-accountholders to provide information such as name, e-mail addresses, and information relating to their use of the eVolve websites or other offerings.
Persons authorized to submit requests on behalf of a consumer (“agents”) can submit a request by email to privacy.questions@eVolvemep.com. We may notify the consumer and require the consumer to independently verify their identity before fulfilling the authorized agent’s request.
We will retain certain information relating to your CCPA request to demonstrate compliance with the CCPA and to improve our consumer request process.
The following table provides a description of the personal information that we have disclosed for our business purposes and the categories of third parties that received the personal information.
