What is the Nature of the Personal Information We Collect and How Do We Use It?
The types of Personal Information we may collect (directly from you or from third party sources) and our privacy practices depend on the nature of the relationship you have with MATUSALEM and the requirements of applicable law. Some of the ways that we may collect Personal Information include:
- You may provide Personal Information directly to us through interacting with the Services, participating in surveys, during events such as sweepstakes, and requesting Services, or information on our Products.
- As you navigate the Services, certain passive information may also be collected about your visit, including through cookies and similar technologies described below.
Below are the ways we collect Personal Information and how we use it.
Collection and Use of Information
Our primary goals in collecting information are to improve and provide information on our Products as well as improve your use of the Services (including your Account, if you are an Account holder), and to enable you to employ and easily navigate our various websites and related social media.
Types of Personal Information that MATUSALEM Collects
MATUSALEM may collect Personal Information regarding its current, prospective, and former customers, users, visitors, and guests (collectively «Individuals»).
Information Provided Directly to MATUSALEM
When you use the Services or engage in certain activities, such as registering for an Account, responding to surveys, requesting information on our Products, interacting on social media, or contacting us directly, we may ask you to provide some or all of the following types of information:
Communications with MATUSALEM
We may collect Personal Information from you such as email address, phone number or mailing address when you choose to request information about our Products or Services, register for MATUSALEM’s newsletter or a program that we may offer from time to time, request to receive customer or technical support, or otherwise communicate with us.
We may from time to time contact you to participate in online surveys. If you decide to participate, you may be asked to provide certain information which may include Personal Information. All information collected from your participation in our surveys is provided by you voluntarily. We may use such information (but not your Personal Information) to improve our Products, websites, social media, and/or Services in any manner consistent with the policies provided herein.
Posting on our Sites
MATUSALEM may offer publicly accessible blogs, private messages, community forums, social media accounts, or the like (“Site”). When you disclose information about yourself at such a Site, the Site will collect the information you provide, including any Personal Information. If you choose to submit content to any public area of the Site, that content will be considered «public» and will not be subject to the privacy protections.
Sweepstakes or Contests
We may from time to time run sweepstakes and contests. We may ask individuals who enter the sweepstakes or contests to provide contact information (e.g., an e-mail address). If you participate in a sweepstakes or contest, your contact information may be used to reach you about the sweepstakes or contest, and for other promotional, marketing, and business purposes. All sweepstakes/contests entry forms will provide a way for participants to optout of any communications that are not related to awarding prizes.
Automatic Data Collection
Certain information may be automatically collected through our Services or other methods of web analysis, such as your Internet protocol (IP) address, cookie identifiers, mobile carrier, mobile advertising identifiers, MAC address, IMEI, Advertiser ID, and other identifiers that are automatically assigned to your computer or device when you access the Internet, browser type and language, geolocation information, hardware type, operating system, Internet service provider, pages that you visit before and after using the Services, the date and time of your visit, the amount of time you spend on each page, information about the links you click and pages, and other actions taken such as preferences.
Information Submitted By You
You agree that MATUSALEM is free to use the content of any communications submitted by you via the Services, including any ideas, inventions, concepts, techniques, or know-how disclosed therein, for any purpose including developing, manufacturing, and/or marketing goods or Services. We will not release your name or otherwise publicize the fact that you submitted materials or other information to us unless: (a) you give us permission to do so; (b) we first send notice to you that the materials or other information you submit will be published or otherwise used with your name on it; or (c) we are required to do so by law.
Information from Other Sources
We may receive information about you from other sources, including through third party services and organizations to supplement information provided by you. For example, if you create an Account using login credentials from a third party service, for example a social media site, we will be able to access and collect your name and other Personal Information that your privacy settings on that such third party service permits us to access. If you create an Account through the Services or a third party service, we may also collect your gender, date of birth and other information that is not considered Personal Information because it cannot be used by itself to identify you. This supplemental information allows us to verify information that you have provided to MATUSALEM and to enhance our ability to provide you with information about our business, Products, and Services.
Information Collected Using Various Technologies
«Pixels»/»Web Beacons» (also known as Web bugs, pixel tags or clear GIFs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that may be included on our Services for several purposes, including to deliver or communicate with Cookies, to track and measure the performance of our Services, to monitor how many visitors view our Services, and to monitor the effectiveness of our advertising. Unlike Cookies, which are stored on the user’s hard drive, Web Beacons are typically embedded invisibly on web pages (or in an e-mail).
MATUSALEM may also use Google Analytics and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to collect information regarding the behavior and demographics of visitors on some of our Services, and to develop website content. This analytics data is not tied to any Personal Information. For more information about Google Analytics, please visit www.google.com/policies/ privacy/partners/.

Our uses of such Technologies fall into the following general categories:
Necessary for Operations
Advertising or Targeting Related
We may use first-party or third-party cookies and web beacons to deliver content, including ads relevant to your interests, on our sites or on third party sites. This includes using Technologies to understand the usefulness of the advertisements and content that has been delivered, such as whether you have clicked on an advertisement. If you would like to optout of the Technologies we employ on our sites, services, applications, or tools, you may do so by blocking, deleting, or disabling them as your browser or device permits.
In some cases MATUSALEM may collect and store information about where you are located, such as by converting your IP address into a rough geolocation or by accessing your mobile device’s GPS coordinates or course location if you enable location services on your device. We may use such location information to improve and personalize our Services for you. If you do not want us to collect location information, you may disable that feature on your mobile device.

The Site and our other Services may also contain links and interactive features with various social media platforms (e.g., widgets).

You should be aware that Personal Information which you voluntarily include and transmit online in a publicly accessible blog, chat room, social media platform or otherwise online, or that you share in an open forum may be viewed and used by others without any restrictions.

Information Disclosed in Connection with Business Transactions
Information that we collect from our users, including Personal Information, is considered to be a business asset. As a result, if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or asset sale, some or all of our assets, including your Personal Information, may be disclosed or transferred to a third-party acquirer in connection with the transaction.
Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others
We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and/or private parties to enforce and comply with the law.

You have the right to opt out of certain uses and disclosures of your Personal Information. Where you have consented to MATUSALEM’s processing of your Personal Information, you may withdraw that consent at any time and opt-out to further processing by contacting us at our website. Even if you opt-out, we may still collect and use non-Personal Information regarding your activities on our Sites and Services and/or information from the advertisements on third party websites for non-interest based advertising purposes, such as to determine the effectiveness of the advertisements.
We maintain «do-not-call» and «do-not-mail» lists as mandated by law. We process requests to be placed on do-not-mail, do-not-phone and do-not-contact lists within 60 days after receipt, or such shorter time as may be required by law.

Our Services do not have the capability to respond to «Do Not Track» signals received from various web browsers.

Rights of Access, Correction, Deletion, and Restriction
Although MATUSALEM makes good faith efforts to provide Individuals with access to their Personal Information, there may be circumstances in which we are unable to provide access, including but not limited to: where the information contains legal privilege, would compromise others’ privacy or other legitimate rights, where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the Individual’s privacy in the case in question or where it is commercially proprietary. If we determine that access should be restricted in any particular instance, we will provide you with an explanation of why that determination has been made and a contact point for any further inquiries. To protect your privacy, we will take commercially reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to or making any changes to your Personal Information.
Retention of Personal Information
