COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL DATA
What Personal Data Does Gradia Collect?
We collect three types of information from our Website users: (i) contact data; (ii) support data; and (iii) technology data. Each category of data is explained in depth below.
Contact Data: Gradia collects contact data from users, which may include, but not be limited to, your name, job title, company name, organization type, phone number, and e-mail address. The collection of this demographic data is primarily used to contact you and provide consultations or demos of Gradia products and services.
Technology Data: We use common information-gathering tools, such as log files, cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to automatically collect information, which may contain Personal Data from your computer or mobile device as you navigate our Website or interact with emails or other communications we have sent you. The information we collect may include your IP address (or proxy server), device and application identification numbers, location, browser type, Internet service provider and/or mobile carrier, the pages and files you viewed, your searches, your operating system and system configuration information, and date/time stamps associated with your usage. This information is used to analyze overall trends, help us provide and improve our Website, and ensure the proper functioning and security of the Website.
How Does Gradia Collect Personal Data?
Website Engagement: Gradia collects Personal Data through your engagement with the Website, such as when you sign up to receive information from Gradia, schedule a consultation or demo, or sign up for a newsletter.
Browser or Device Information: Certain information is collected by most browsers or automatically through your device, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type, screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, language, and Internet browser type. We use this information to ensure that the Website functions properly.
SDKs and Mobile Advertising IDs: Our Website may include third-party SDKs that allow us and our third-party service providers to collect information about your activity. In addition, some mobile devices come with a resettable advertising ID (such as Apple’s IDFA and Google Advertising’s ID) that, like cookies and pixel tag, allow us and our third-party service providers to identify your mobile device over time for advertising purposes.
Third-Party Online Tracking: Gradia may also partner with certain third parties to collect, analyze, and use some of the information described in this section. For example, we may allow third parties to set cookies or use web beacons on the website or in email communications from us. This information may be used for a variety of purposes, including online website analytics and interest-based advertising.
How Can Users Opt-Out of Cookies?
If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove and reject cookies. If you enable a do not track signal or otherwise configure your browsers to prevent us from collecting cookies, certain features of the Website may not operate correctly, and you may also be unable to take advantage of some of the Website’s features.
Do Not Track Disclosure
Some web browsers may transmit do not track (“DNT”) signals to websites with which the user communicates. To date, there is no industry standard for DNT and users cannot know how a given company responds to a DNT signal they receive from browsers. Gradia is committed to remaining apprised of DNT standards. However, Gradia does not support DNT browser settings and does not currently participate in any DNT frameworks that would allow Gradia to respond to signals or other mechanisms regarding the collection of your personal information.
How Will Gradia Use Your Personal Data?
More specifically, Gradia processes your Personal Data for the following legitimate business purposes:
Gradia may aggregate and/or anonymize Personal Data collected through the Website so that it will no longer be considered Personal Data. We do so to generate other data for our use, which we may use and disclose for any purpose, as long as it no longer identifies you or any other individual.

Gradia uses third party-service providers to monitor and analyze the use of the Website. The analytics services and techniques we may use include, but are not limited to: Google Analytics, Segment, Mixpanel, and PostHog.
