Service providers process your personal information for the specific purpose of providing their services to us (and in accordance with our instructions).
As we continue to grow, we may purchase websites, applications, subsidiaries, or other businesses or business units. Alternatively, we may sell businesses or business units, merge with other entities, obtain financing, and/or sell assets or stock, in some cases, as part of a reorganization or liquidation in bankruptcy. In order to evaluate and/or as part of these transactions, we may transfer your personal information to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation, or other corporate reorganization in which MetaJuice participates, to investors and/or to a purchaser or acquirer of all or a portion of MetaJuice’s assets, bankruptcy included.
We may disclose your personal information to our corporate affiliates within our corporate family to assist us with our business operations. Together with our affiliates, we are the “business” for purposes of the CCPA.

Legal Obligations and Security
MetaJuice may preserve or disclose your personal information in limited circumstances (other than as set forth in this Privacy Notice), including: (i) with your consent; (ii) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a valid subpoena, warrant, or other judicial or administrative order (as further explained below); (iii) to protect the safety of any person; (iv) to protect the safety or security of our Site or to prevent spam, abuse, or other malicious activity of actors with respect to the Site; or (v) to protect our rights or property or the rights or property of those who use the Site.
If we are required to disclose personal information by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena, warrant, or other judicial or administrative order, our policy is to respond to requests that are properly issued by law enforcement within the United States or via mutual legal assistance mechanism (such as a treaty). However, if we receive information that provides us with a good faith belief that there is an exigent emergency involving the danger of death or serious physical injury to a person, we may provide information to law enforcement trying to prevent or mitigate the danger (if we have it), which will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
MetaJuice maintains an online presence on social media platforms (“Social Media Platforms”) such as Twitter, to provide information about our Site and communicate with users and/or visitors to those pages or accounts. When you interact or post to our account, we process your personal information.
MetaJuice does not track individuals across multiple platforms and does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals. To learn more, visit www.allaboutdnt.com.
No method of transmission over the Internet (or method of electronic storage) is 100% secure, however we take steps that are reasonably necessary to securely provide our Site. We have put in place reasonably appropriate security measures designed to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered, or disclosed. We limit access to personal data only to those employees, agents and contractors who have a business need-to-know.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. If required, we will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach. We also require those parties to whom we transfer your personal information to provide acceptable standards of security.
The Site is hosted and operated in the United States (“U.S.”) through MetaJuice, its affiliates, and its service providers. Laws in the U.S. may differ from the laws where you reside and may be less protective than the laws of your country or region, such as the GDPR.
By using the Site, you consent and acknowledge that any personal data about you, regardless of whether provided by you or obtained from a third party, is being provided to MetaJuice in the U.S. and will be hosted on the U.S. services by MetaJuice and/or its service providers, and you authorize MetaJuice and/or its service providers to transfer, store and process your information to and in the U.S. and possibly other countries.
Although by using our Site you automatically send your personal data to the U.S., which is not deemed an “adequate” jurisdiction by the European Union for data transfers, we adhere to the Standard Contractual Clauses and require parties to whom we disclose your information to adhere to the Standard Contractual Clauses to the extent not located in the EEA.

Categories of Recipients of Personal Data
The categories of recipients of Personal Data with whom we may share your personal data are listed in Disclosure of Your Personal Information above.
Purpose of the Processing and Legal Bases
MetaJuice processes your personal information for a number of different purposes. Some are essential for us to provide the Site you use or to fulfill our legal obligations, some help us run the Site efficiently and effectively, and some enable us to provide you with more relevant and personalized offers and information. In all cases we must have a reason and a legal ground for processing your personal information. Some of the most common legal grounds we rely on are briefly explained below.
The following breakdown illustrates in more detail how the above legal bases for processing apply to our primary purposes for processing different types of personal data. Please note that, with respect to legal bases, we only rely on one basis for each specific processing activity, but for purposes of this following breakdown, we may list more than one, which will then depend on the specific type of processing and circumstances. We have broken each processing activity by legal bases and categories of personal data processed:
Ensure that our Site is operational and optimized for user experience [Legal Basis: Legitimate Interests or Performance of a Contract, depending on the specific use] [Personal Data: name, email]
How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Data?
We use the following criteria to determine our retention periods: the amount, nature and sensitivity of your information, the reasons for which we collect and process your personal data, the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide you with access to our Site, and applicable legal requirements. We will retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements), when we are unable to reasonably verify your identity, or as may otherwise be required under GDPR. Additionally, we cannot delete information when it is needed for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims (also known as a “litigation hold”). In this case, the information must be retained as long as needed for exercising respective potential legal claims.
When we have no ongoing business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible. If you have questions about, or need further information concerning, our data retention periods, please send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Staying in Control of Your Information: Your Rights
If you are in the EEA or the U.K., you have certain rights in relation to your personal data, including those set forth below. Please note that in some circumstances, we may not be able to fully comply with your request, such as if it is frivolous or extremely impractical, if it jeopardizes the rights of others, if an exception applies, or if it is not required by law, but in those circumstances, we will still respond to notify you of such a decision. In some cases, we may also need you to provide us with additional information, which may include personal data, if necessary to verify your identity and the nature of your request.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights) unless your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request under those circumstances.
We will respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally, it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated as required by law.
In addition, if you no longer wish to receive our marketing/promotional information, we remind you that you may withdraw your consent to direct marketing at any time directly from the unsubscribe link included in each electronic marketing message we send to you. If you do so, we will promptly update our databases, and will take all reasonable steps to meet your request at the earliest possible opportunity, but we may continue to contact you to the extent necessary for the purposes of providing our Site.
Finally, you have the right to make a complaint at any time to the supervisory authority for data protection issues in your country of residence. A list of Supervisory Authorities is available here: https://edpb.europa.eu/about-edpb/board/members_en. We would, however, appreciate the chance to address your concerns before you approach the supervisory authority, so please contact us directly first.

This Privacy Notice for California Residents (“CCPA Notice”) supplements the information contained in the Privacy Notice and applies solely to all visitors, users, and others who reside in the State of California (“Consumers”).

Your Rights and Choices
The CCPA provides Consumers with specific rights regarding their Personal Information, provided that we are able to verify their identities as explained below . This Section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights
You have the right to request that MetaJuice disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive your request and verify your identity (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights) , we will disclose such information to you.
Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that MetaJuice delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive your request and verify your identity (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights) , we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) for certain reasons as permitted and set forth in the CCPA.
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable Consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable Consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
An authorized agent is a natural person or a business entity registered with the Secretary of State that a Consumer has authorized to act on his or her behalf. When a Consumer uses an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete, MetaJuice may require that the Consumer provide the authorized agent written permission to do so and verify his or her own identity directly with MetaJuice, unless the Consumer has provided the authorized agent with a valid power of attorney. MetaJuice may deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that he or she has been authorized by the Consumer to act on his or her behalf.
To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable Consumer request to us by emailing email@example.com.
You may only make a verifiable Consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable Consumer request must:
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.
Making a verifiable Consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. Please note that the methods for verification are set forth in the CCPA, which also requires us to consider a number of factors, such as the type, sensitivity, and value of the personal information or the risk of harm posed by unauthorized access or deletion, on a case-by-case basis.
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable Consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable Consumer request within the timeframes set forth in the CCPA.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of the verifiable Consumer’s request. If applicable, in our response, we will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily usable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable Consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
We will not discriminate against you in a manner prohibited by the CCPA because you exercise your CCPA rights. Please note that to sign up for our newsletter, we do require the collection of your personal information. While you may request to delete your personal information under CCPA, such deletions may affect MetaJuice’s ability to offer services.
