We understand that you may have questions or concerns regarding your personal information, how it may be collected, and how it may be used. To make this Policy easy to find, we make it available through the Site (as defined below).
This Policy describes the types of information we may collect from you and explains how we use, collect, protect, share, and safeguard your information when you visit www.omella.com (the “Site”) or use Omella products and services. If you do not agree with the terms of this Policy, please do not access our Site. By accessing or using this Site, or using our products and services, you agree to this Policy.
We encourage you to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any concerns or privacy-related questions that you may have.
For information regarding our compliance with the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (also known as "COPPA"), please see the section below entitled, Our Compliance With the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.
This Policy applies to all information we may collect from you in connection with our services. The term “services,” as used in this Policy, means any products, services, content, features, technologies, or functions, and all related websites, applications, and services offered to you by Omella in connection with your Omella account.
This Policy does not apply to information collected by us offline or through any other means, including on any other website operated by us or by any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries). When you are no longer our customer, we may continue to share your information as described in this Policy.
Throughout this Policy, we use the term "personal information" to describe information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify that person. We do not consider personal information to include information that has been aggregated and/or anonymized so that it does not identify a specific user.

We may also collect certain Geolocation Information (as defined below). If you do not agree to our collection of this information, you may not be able to use Omella.

We are committed to providing a safe and secure customer experience. As a result, before permitting you to use our services, we may require additional information from you that we can use to verify your identity, address or other information or to manage risk and compliance throughout our relationship. We may also obtain information about you from third parties such as to verify your identity, prevent fraud, and provide similar services.
Finally, we may collect additional information from or about you in other ways not specifically described here. For example, we may collect information related to your contact with our customer support team or store results when you respond to a survey.
OUR COMPLIANCE WITH THE CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION ACT
This policy is prepared in accordance with the COPPA, among other applicable privacy laws, and outlines our practices in the United States regarding children's information collected from users of our services. We recognize the need to provide further privacy protections when it comes to children. While we generally do not target children, we recognize that aspects of our services may be directed to children (individuals younger than 18 years of age), while other services or portions of them are intended for use by adults and teens age 18 and older.
PARENTAL ACCESS AND CONTROLS
As a parent or legal guardian you can, at any time, refuse to permit us to collect personal information from your child and request that we delete from our records personal information we have collected. If you have any questions or concerns about our approach to children's privacy, you want to access the data of your child, or request the deletion of your child's data, please contact us at email@example.com or call us at 510-560-6766. For information about requesting deletion of personal information, please visit the Contact Us section below.
COLLECTION OF INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN
If we allow children (individuals younger than 18 years of age, but older than 13 years of age) to engage with us, we will first obtain parental consent prior to the collection of their personal information. In order to obtain this consent, we sometimes ask your child to provide a parent's e-mail address so that we may directly notify you of our privacy practices and obtain your consent. When we do this, we delete the e-mail address they provided if a parent does not timely respond to the request for consent.
We do not send text messages or other non-email messages (like chat) to children. Omella will delete any personal information collection from children online immediately upon a parent’s request, and will retain personal information collected from children online only as long as may be reasonably necessary to fulfill the purpose for which such information was collected.
With respect to portions of our services directed to children, we generally do not allow users to use social media sharing or login functions or use, or allow our partners to use, automatically collected information, such as IP addresses, cookie identifiers, and other device identifiers, other than for purposes of supporting our internal operations, such as to provide children with access to features and activities on the services, to customize content and improve our services, or serve contextual advertising or limit the number of times you or your child sees a particular advertisement. We never allow interest-based advertising on portions of our services that are directed to children or where we know that the user is a child or a teen under 18 years of age.
CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18
Please note that our Site is generally not intended for children under 18 years of age. If we obtain actual knowledge that we have collected personal information from a person under the age of 18 without parental consent, we will promptly delete it, unless we are required by law to retain such data. If you believe we may have mistakenly or unintentionally collected any information from or about a person under 18 without parental consent, please contact us using the contact information provided in the Contact Us section below.
Please be advised that Omella does not knowingly collect or solicit information from, or otherwise market to, persons under 18 years of age. If you are under 18 years of age, please do not use or provide any information on this Site or through any of its features without first providing Omella consent from your parent or legal guardian.
Pages of our Site may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).

However, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all cookies or by modifying your web browser’s settings to notify you each time a cookie is tendered, permitting you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis.
