HOW WE PROTECT DATA AND PERSONAL DATA
We treat Personal Data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. We use industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) software to protect the security of your data and Personal Data during transmission, which encrypts all of the information you input. All data and Personal Data Processed from other sites that you provide through the use of the Site is stored securely. Only employees and agents of PeakActivity who need data and Personal Data to perform a specific task under a Lawful Basis (as defined herein) are granted access to the data and Personal Data. All of Our employees and agents are kept up to date on Our privacy and security practices.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT

You can choose not to provide Us with certain information, though you may not be able to take advantage of certain Site features. The personal information you provide may be used and Processed for such purposes as responding to your questions or requests, customizing the content you see, and communicating with you about PeakActivity or the Site. If you send Us personal correspondence, such as emails, or if other users or third parties send Us correspondence about your activities or postings on the Site, We may collect and Process such information into a file specific to you. You agree that We may Process and use your personal information to contact you as provided herein, though Our intent is that email is the only channel We will use to contact you without your consent.

We receive Personal Data directly from you when you provide Us with such Personal Data which includes without limitation: contact information such as name, phone number, email, postal address; device data such as geolocation, diagnostic, usage, computer operating system, system and application software and; other Personal Data contained in the content you submit to Us through Our Site. In each instance where you provide Us with Personal Data, we will require that you ‘opt- in’ to the transmission of Personal Data by clicking a check-box or specifically clicking ‘agree’ to the voluntary transmission of Personal Data.
Information We Obtain by Automated Means. Browsing the Site does not require you to register for an account or provide any Personal Data to Us. In general, PeakActivity will gather some generic information automatically. This generic information includes but is not limited to the internet address assigned to your computer, the device identifier, web browser information, page view statistics, browsing history (as it relates to the Site), Cookies, hardware and software information, geolocation information (to the extent you, your device, shares such information), the number and frequency of visitors to the Site, the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on the Site or not), and which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on the Site or not), and your computer browser information. Generic information does not reveal the identity of the user and is not Personal Data. This type of aggregate data may enable Us to figure out how often users use parts of the Site, help Us determine Site needs, diagnose technical issues regarding Our Site, and do internal research on Our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect, and serve you and Our community. PeakActivity may use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, but not in a manner that would identify you personally and be deemed Personal Data. As part of this use of information, We may provide aggregate information, not information about you personally, to third parties about how Our users, collectively, use Our Site. We use analytics to help analyze how Our users use the Site. We may also collect Personal Data about you from third parties, such as data brokers or aggregators, in the course of maintaining the Site. This may include demographic information, professional and other information that is made publicly available online including information you choose to make available through social media platforms and other public online forums. We will always seek to confirm that the third party provided transparent information about the use of its data, including disclosure to third parties like Us, in compliance with applicable law.
