11. Your Rights and Choices
Your rights may vary depending on where you are located. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information.
• Accessing, Updating, and Deleting Your Information. You can contact us as set forth in the Contact Us section below to request access to, correction of, or deletion of personal data that you have provided to us. We may also ask you to verify your identity before we respond to your request. Depending on your request, we may not accommodate your request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or negatively affect the information’s accuracy.
• California Residents. If you are a California resident, you may have additional personal rights and choices with regard to your personal data. Please see Your California Privacy Rights for more information. California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal data to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. At this time, we do not engage in this type of disclosure.
• EU Residents. If you are a resident of the European Union, you have the right to:o request access to your personal data, commonly known as a “data subject access request,” which allows you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
o Request a correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
o Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us to continue to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
o Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may
demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
o Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:
▪ If you want us to establish the data’s accuracy.
▪ Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims.
▪ You have objected to our use of your data, but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
o Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
o Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain Services to you. We will advise you if this is
the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
o We may make automated decisions about you based on your personal data that may affect your access or Services provided to you. You have the right not to be subject the automated decision making so long as the decision is not necessary for the performance of the contract with you or required by legal obligation. If the
decision making is necessary, you may contest the decision and request human intervention in the decision-making process.
o You also have a right to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority where you live.
12. International Transfers
If you are located in the EEA, we have put in place appropriate measures to comply with the laws and regulations to ensure that the transfer of personal data to countries outside of the EEA provides an adequate level of data protection.
13. Data Security
The security of your personal data is very important to us. We use physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards designed to protect your personal data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure. We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purpose of collecting it.
We also require our service providers and business partners to whom we disclose the information to do the same. When you use certain types of information, for example, we encrypt the transmission of certain sensitive or financial information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We will continue to improve our physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards. However, the Internet environment is not 100% secure, and we cannot guarantee that information we collect will never be accessed in an unauthorized way.

I. How we verify requests and respond to requests
Before fulfilling your request, we take steps to verify you are who you say you are or that you have the authority to act on someone else’s behalf. Therefore, upon receipt of your request, we will request additional information that we need to verify you and, if you are submitting a request on behalf of someone else, to verify that you are permitted to act on that person’s behalf.
When we contact you to request verification information, please respond and provide the information that we have requested. Depending on the nature of the request you make, we may require you to verify your identity to either a reasonable degree of certainty or high degree of certainty. This may mean that we need to match two or three pieces of information that we hold about you with information that you provide to us. In some cases, we may require you to sign a declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request or that you are authorized to make the request on behalf of someone else.
In addition to providing the information we need to verify you or your authority, you must provide us with enough information so that we can understand, evaluate, and respond to your request. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot confirm the personal information relates to you.
We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify your identity or authority to make the request and to locate relevant information. 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 to understand, evaluate, and respond to your request.
We cannot delete personal information in those situations where our retention is required for our own internal business purposes or otherwise permitted by the CCPA (such as fraud prevention or legal compliance). In these situations, we will retain your information in accordance with our records retention program and securely delete it at the end of the retention period.
J. Who may submit requests?
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a request related to your personal information. You may also make request on behalf of your minor child. You may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf by registering such person or entity with the California Secretary of State.
K. How often you can submit requests?
You may make a CCPA consumer request twice within a 12-month period.
L. Response timing and format
We make every attempt to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. When you request a copy of your personal information, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity easily.
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 for exercising any of your CCPA rights. You have a right not to receive discriminatory treatment by us for exercising your privacy rights.
N. Changes To This Privacy Notice
Changes to this Privacy Notice will be posted on this site, along with information on any material changes. The Company reserves the right to update or modify this Privacy Notice at any time and without prior notice.

9.1 Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means any and all information of a Party hereto (the “Disclosing Party”) that is disclosed to the other Party hereto (the “Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing or through any media; provided, however, that Confidential Information shall not include information that is: (i) in the public domain or enters the public domain through no fault of Receiving Party; (ii) communicated to the Receiving Party by a third Party without any breach of any known confidentiality to Gesso Labs by such third Party; (iii) already in Receiving Party’s possession free of any obligation of confidentiality when disclosed to Receiving Party; or (iv) independently developed by Receiving Party without use of the Confidential Information and without breach of any obligation of confidentiality.
9.2 Obligation of Confidentiality. Receiving Party acknowledges that Confidential Information may contain valuable trade secrets and other proprietary information of Disclosing Party and remains the sole and exclusive property of Disclosing Party.

9.3 Compelled Disclosure.

10.3 Indemnification Procedure.
