In compliance with certain privacy laws, in particular the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Topple provides specific additional rights for individuals who interact with Topple such as the right to access, rectification, right to object, to complaint, erasure and blockage. More specifically and under certain circumstances:
 
1. The right to request information about whether and which personal data is processed by us, and the right to demand that personal data is rectified or amended.

In addition to the above, we reference certain rights for European Territory citizens throughout this Privacy Policy. Pursuant to the GDPR, citizens from “European Territories” mean the European Economic Area (EEA), the European Free Trade Area (EFTA) and Switzerland.

If you are a consumer who is a resident of California, Topple does not sell the personal information it collects.  However, our clients may use our technology to buy or sell personal information as defined by California law.  If you wish to opt out of the use of your personal information for interest-based advertising and these potential sales under California law, you may do so by following the instructions included in this policy on opt-out. Note that because these opt-outs are specific to the device or browser on which they are exercised, you will need to opt out on every browser and device that you use.

Subject to certain limitations, California law also permits you to request certain information regarding our disclosures of your personal information during the preceding calendar year. To learn more about California residents’ rights and, if you are a California resident, to make requests about your personal information or exercise your opt-out rights, visit our Notice to California Residents.

This Privacy Policy does not cover, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, data or other practices of any third parties (except as required by applicable law), including any third parties operating any site or service to which our Services link. The inclusion of a link on the Services does not imply endorsement of the linked site or service by us or by our affiliates. These third parties are bound by their own privacy policies.

We are also not responsible for the collection, usage and disclosure policies and practices (including the data security practices) of our publisher clients, our advertising clients such as demand side platforms, data management platforms, app developers, app providers, ad servers, social media platform providers, operating system providers, wireless service providers or device manufacturers (except as required by applicable law), including any Personal Information you disclose to other organizations through or in connection with the Services.

Information that we collect is stored using procedures and practices reasonably designed to help protect from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, personal information transmitted, stored or otherwise processed by us.
