18.DEFINITIONS

         The Definitions used in our Terms of Service or End User License Agreement apply to this Privacy                   Policy. “Personal Identifiable Information” can be defined as follows:

 

         Personal Identifiable Information means information about an identifiable individual who can be                 directly or indirectly identified, which does not include information of an aggregate or anonymous             nature where a specific individual or individuals cannot be identified.

         Information about a corporation, firm, trust, union or other non-individual entity is not Personal                     Information.

         Data and information provided or created by our customers in the course of using our products or             services (“Customer Data”) remains the property of our customers and is not used or disclosed by               us except as reasonably required to provide our products or services, or as otherwise set out in this             Policy

19.COMMUNICATING WITH US

         We offer two specific communication methods that are designed to maintain your anonymity in                 the course of your interaction with Us.

         The communication method is via anonymous email. Upon opening your account, We will ask you               to register an email address that will be linked to your Ethan.ai account. We encourage you to set               up an email address which contains no information from which your personal identity may be                     inferred, for the sole use of Ethan.ai. If required, We can guide you on the setup of such an email                   address.

         Aside from the above, you may still communicate with Us via any email address that you regularly             use. In such cases, We may receive information that discloses or could be used to establish your                 identity. We will, however, respect the confidentiality of such information (as with any other                           information that We receive from you) and will only use and/or retain the information strictly in                     accordance with Our usage policy (see Use of Your Data and Information below).

20.USE OF YOUR DATA AND INFORMATION

         Personal Financial Data: We use the financial account statements and other financial data that you          provide to Us or authorize Us to have access (collectively, your “Personal Financial Data”), in order to            deliver the Ethan.ai service, you have subscribed to. We will maintain such data as strictly                              confidential and will not sell, lease or distribute the same to any third party (other than certain                      trusted third party service providers involved in the operations of Our business and performing                    services on Our behalf, with restricted access to customer data and information, on a need-to-know          basis only, and in compliance with this Privacy Policy) without your documented approval, unless We          are required or requested to do so by law or any regulatory authority for the jurisdiction that We                  operate in. For the avoidance of doubt, Personal Financial Data for this purpose does not include                information that is aggregated with similar data from other users to produce Meta Data as                         described below or is otherwise no longer identifiable to any specific Ethan.ai user.

        Meta data: We may derive and create data and information about the use of the Services by our               customers (“Use Data”) which may be disclosed to third party service providers in order to improve             our Services.

       We may derive anonymous data from Customer Data or Use Data and eliminate Personal                           Information from such Customer Data and Use Data so that such derived data cannot be used to             identify a customer or its individual users (“Anonymous Data”);

       We may then combine Anonymous Data with similar anonymous data from other customers or                 users derive Aggregate Data and then license or sell such Aggregate Data. “Aggregate Data” shall             mean anonymous data combined from various sources which cannot be used to identify any                     customer or user.

       We may also derive Anonymous Data for the purposes of creating statistics and analytics data,                   which will be used by Ethan.ai for its own business purposes, including maintaining and improving the         Services.

        Personally Identifiable Information: As stated earlier, should you voluntarily provide Us with any of               your PII, We treat such information with strict confidentiality. We will not sell, lease, or distribute the                 same to any third party without your documented approval, unless We are required or requested to           do so by law or any regulatory authority for the jurisdiction that We operate in. Such data will be used         solely to facilitate communication, and processing of internal administrative and record keeping.

21.KEEPING YOUR DATA AND INFORMATION SAFE

        What We do

 

       We may collect and use Personal Information without consent in circumstances that include but are         not limited to the following

:

       a) Where a reasonable person would consider that the collection of the information is clearly in the                interests of the individual and consent of the individual cannot be obtained in a timely way, or the              individual would not reasonably be expected to withhold consent;

       b) Where the collection of the information is pursuant to a statute or regulation that authorizes or                    requires the collection;

       c) Where the collection of the information is from a public body and that public body is authorized or              required by an enactment of applicable law to disclose the Personal Information to Ethan.ai;

       d) Where the collection of the information is reasonable for the purposes of an investigation or a                      legal proceeding;

 

       e) Where the information is publicly available;

        f) Where the collection of the information is necessary in order to collect a debt owed to Ethan.ai or                for Ethan.ai to repay to an individual money owed by Ethan.ai;

 

      g) In addition to the above, the law generally provides that an individual is deemed to consent to the             collection, use or disclosure of Personal Information about that individual for a particular purpose if             the individual voluntarily provides the information for that purpose, and it is reasonable that a                       person would voluntarily provide that information. If an individual provides Personal Information to               us voluntarily, we will rely on deemed consent and consider that the individual consents to our                     collection, use or disclosure of their Personal Information as necessary to carry out the purposes                 for which they provided the information;

 

      h) Where a new purpose for the use or disclosure of Personal Information previously collected arises,               Ethan.ai will contact the individual in question to obtain any required consent or to provide any                   required notification for use and/or disclosure for such new purpose or purposes;

 

       i) Where practical, Ethan.ai will try to collect Personal Information directly from the individual. Where                necessary, Ethan.ai will collect Personal Information from other sources. When Ethan.ai collects                    Personal Information about individuals directly from them, except when their consent to the                          collection is deemed or has otherwise been previously and lawfully obtained, or is not required, we              will tell them the purpose for which the information is collected, and, if reasonable to do so, the                    name of a person who can answer questions about the collection;

 

       j) Ethan.ai will in all cases use Personal Information only as permitted or required by applicable law

 

        What you should and should not do

        You should ensure that your username, password, and if applicable, two factor authentication                      device required to access the Service is kept secure and confidential at all times and make every              reasonable effort to prevent unauthorized third parties from accessing the Service using your user              ID, password, and if applicable, two factor authentication device. In public areas, you should exercise          caution and not leave your computer unattended whilst logged into your account. You should also            avoid using public computer terminals to access your Ethan.ai account, unless you can adequately            verify that the terminal is free from spyware and that you can erase all of your information upon                  exiting the terminal. We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from unauthorized access to          your account due to any failure to comply with these precautions.

22.OTHER DATA

        Ethan.ai may record certain non-personal information such as Website usage and browsing activity,          data displayed or clicked on (such as UI elements), and others (such as IP address, cookie ID, and                referrer URL). Along with cookies, Ethan.ai may also use third-party tracking technology, such as                    Google Analytics, to record similar information regarding you and your activity on the Ethan.ai                      Website. We may grant access to your data and information to certain trusted third-party services            providers that We work with, but only to perform the service on Our behalf with restricted access to            customer data and information on a need-to-know basis only, and in compliance with this Privacy            Policy.

23.DATA RETENTION

        We will delete your original Personal Financial Data within a reasonable time after the relevant                      financial information has been extracted and processed into Our database for the purpose of                    generating reports. We will retain your account information for as long as you use Ethan.ai or retain            in ccordance with applicable law and where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so         (for example, to provide you with a Service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal,              tax or accounting requirements). If you decide to stop the service, We will delete all such data within          a reasonable time after the termination of the service, subject to retention for purposes of                            complying with applicable laws, resolving disputes, enforcing the terms of Our agreement with you            and protecting Ethan.ai’s intellectual property rights. When we collect, use or disclose Personal                      Information, we will make reasonable efforts to ensure that it is accurate, up to date, and complete.

24.THIRD PARTY WEBSITES AND THIRD-PARTY PLATFORMS

        a) Please note that our website may contain links to other websites which are provided as a                             convenience for visitors to our website only, in addition to third party services, applications, and                   widgets that may be bundled into, included in, or provided in connection with our services.

        b) Any third-party websites, third party services, applications and widgets will have their own privacy               policies and practices, and we cannot be responsible for such third parties, their websites,                             services, applications, widgets, or their privacy practices. Where “Third Party Services” (as defined                 in our Terms & Conditions) are provided or made available to you, you consent to your name,                       email address and any other reasonably required information being sent to the applicable third                 party to enable such third party to make its Third Party Services available or to provide you with its               Third Party Services as required or requested by you, and to authenticate or validate you as a                       customer of Ethan.ai that is entitled to such Third Party Service.
