This includes, but is not limited  to, information provided at the time of registering to use the Site or used to request services from us or from third parties via the Site (including identifiers such as your name, location,  email, phone numbers, and commercial and tax information about your organization).  Certain of this information is optional to provide.

5. INFORMATION WE COLLECT THROUGH THIRD PARTIES & AUTOMATIC DATA  COLLECTION TECHNOLOGIES. As you navigate through and interact with the Site, we may use  automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing  actions, and patterns, including details of your use of the Site and device and internet connection,  including your IP address, operating system, and browser type.

The information we collect automatically may include personal information, or 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 the Site 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 the Site according to your  individual interests.

c. Speed up your searches.

d. Recognize you when you return to the Site.

The technologies we use for this automatic data collection may include:

a. Browser Cookies. A cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer. The Site does not use these “cookies” explicitly. However, the app may use third party code and  libraries that use cookies to collect information and improve their services. You may refuse to  accept browser cookies by activating the appropriate setting on your browser. However, if  you select this setting, you may be unable to access certain parts of the Site. Unless you have  adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies  when you direct your browser to the Site.  

b. Google Analytics (Google LLC). Google Analytics is a web analysis service provided by  Google LLC. Google utilizes personal information collected to track and examine the use of  the Site, to prepare reports on its activities, and to share them with other Google services. Google may use the personal information collected to contextualize and personalize the ads of  its own advertising network.

c. Platform Services and Hosting. These services have the purpose of hosting and running key  components of the Site, therefore allowing the provision of the Site from within a unified  platform. Such platforms provide a wide range of tools to the Owner (such as analytics, user  registration, commenting, database management, e-commerce, payment processing) that  imply the collection and handling of personal information.  

d. Displays of Content from Third-Party Platforms. This service allows you to view content  hosted on external platforms directly from the pages of the Site and interact with them. This  type of service might still collect web traffic data for the pages where the service is installed,  even when users do not use it.

e. Tag Management. This service helps us manage the tags or scripts needed on the Site Application in a centralized fashion. This results in your personal information collected flowing through these services, potentially resulting in the retention of personal information  by Google Tag Manager, the tag management service we use.  

We also may rely on certain third-party services to help us collect and analyze this information. The  collection and use of this information is governed by the privacy policies of the relevant third party.  Specifically, we use the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store to offer our Site to you on certain  devices. To view the privacy policies applicable to the collection and use of information from you by  these third parties, see the following links:

a. Google Play Services.  

b. Apple App Store.

Finally, you may use your mobile device, computer, or other internet-connected device’s settings to  change how your device retains and uses information provided or collected by applications such as  the Site operating on that device. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with your device’s  settings before contacting us with a request to modify or delete any of your personal information.    

9. YOUR DATA PRIVACY RIGHTS. Depending on your location of use of the Site and the location  of your primary residence, you may have the right to exercise certain data protections, including the  right to request that we delete, amend or provide you with access to your personal information. For  

example, California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of the Site that are California residents  to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for  their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to frontdesk@vaughtandassociates.com.

We respond to all requests that we receive from individuals who wish to exercise their data  protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws. You can contact us with your  request by sending an email to frontdesk@vaughtandassociates.com.

10. CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS. During the preceding 12 months, we have collected, used, and  shared the categories of personal information described in this Privacy Policy. We do not consider  the ways we share your information as a “sale” for purposes of California law. California residents  have certain rights to access and delete their personal information and to request transparency about  our privacy practices. If you would like to access or delete your information, or otherwise exercise  your rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act, please see YOUR DATA PRIVACY RIGHTS.  Once we receive your request, we may verify it by requesting information sufficient to confirm your  identity, including by asking you for additional information. Consistent with California law, if you  choose to exercise your rights, we will not charge you different prices, provide different quality of  services, or discriminate against you in any way for exercising your rights, unless those differences  are permitted by law. If you would like to use an agent registered with the California Secretary of  State to exercise your rights, we may request evidence that you have provided such agent with power  of attorney or that the agent otherwise has valid written authority to submit requests to exercise  rights on your behalf.


11. DATA SECURITY & TRANSFERS OF INFORMATION. We have implemented measures  designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use,  alteration, and disclosure. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where  we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the Site, you  are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with  anyone.  

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although  we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your  personal information transmitted to the Site. Any transmission of personal information is at your own

risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained  on the Site.

We are based in the United States, and our Site is offered to persons located in the United States. As  such, information about you will be transferred to, and processed in, the United States, which may  not be your country of residence. Your country of residence may have data protection laws that are  

different to the laws of the United States and, in some cases, may not be as protective. We have taken  appropriate safeguards, such as standard contractual clauses, to require that your information will  remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy in such instances.


12. CHANGES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY. It is our policy to post any changes we make to our  privacy policy on this page. If we make material changes to how we treat our users’ personal  information, we will notify you by email to the primary email address specified in your account or through a notice on the Site. The date the Privacy Policy was last revised is identified at the top of  the page.
