INTRODUCTION

This Privacy Policy has been compiled to better serve those concerned about how their personally identifiable information (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in the U.S. privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our Privacy Policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your PII in accordance with our website.

By using the Modern Requirements website or by purchasing our Products and Services, you acknowledge that Modern Requirements will use your information in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Germany as well as any other country where Modern Requirements operates. This privacy policy has been updated to comply with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and this policy describes how we protect personal information that is transferred outside of the EU. Please be aware that the privacy laws and standards in certain countries, including the rights of authorities to access your personal information, may differ from those that apply in the country in which you reside. We will transfer personal information only to countries to which we are permitted by law to transfer personal information and we will continue to ensure that your personal information is appropriately safeguarded.

HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION ON YOU

In the course of providing you access to the Modern Requirements client area, as well as gated product data, Modern Requirements collects and receives personal information in a few ways. Often, you can choose what information to provide, but sometimes we require personal information from you to carry out certain activities such as account verification. This section details the ways in which we collect information from you and how that information is received.

Account Registration

Although the Modern Requirements provides for anonymous and pseudonymous participation, in some instances in order to use certain Products or Services, we require account registration. This requires a name associated with your account, an email address at which we can contact you, and in some cases, additional information including, a contact address, a billing address, and a password to help secure your personal information.

Information Collected Automatically

Modern Requirements receives and records information from your browser or mobile device when you visit the Modern Requirements website, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address or unique device identifier.

This information is stored in secure logs and is collected automatically. We may combine this browser information with other information we collect about you. This information is used to keep the Products and Services secure, analyze and understand how our Products and Services are used, and to optimize such usage.

Location Information

When you use Modern Requirements website, we collect location information about you including your IP address, your location, browser information, and how you came to Modern Requirements. This is the case for individuals who have registered for an account, and non-members who engage with Modern Requirements by visiting our website(s) but who have not completed an account registration. This information is collected for various purposes, including advertising, analytics and to serve content as it relates to certain Products or Services; as well as to provide you with localized content recommendations. You may revoke our permission to collect some of this data, including your location and browser information through setting located within your browser. Note however, that this may limit functionality in some cases.

Information Shared with Third Parties

We may share personal information with third parties who provide services to Modern Requirements, such as email delivery service providers. When Modern Requirements shares your personal information and other collected information with third party service providers, we require that they use your information only for the purpose of providing services to us and that their terms are consistent with this privacy policy.

Modern Requirements uses data analytics to ensure site functionality and to optimize our Product and Service offerings to you. We use web browser and mobile analytics to allow us to understand Modern Requirements functionality. In doing so, we record information including, for example how often you visit the Modern Requirements website, how often you engage with our written content, Modern Requirements performance data, errors and debugging information, and the type of activity you engage in while on the Modern Requirements or in your use of our Products and Services.

COOKIES

DATA PROCESSING DISCLOSURES

When you access Modern Requirements and use the Products and Services we offer, we collect, display, store, share, transmit, and process your information in the manner described in this policy. In order to carry out these activities, Modern Requirements may rely on a number of legal bases in order to process your personal data, including where:

  • necessary to perform the contractual obligations in our Terms of Service and in order to provide the Products and Services to you
  • necessary for a third party’s, or our, legitimate interests
  • necessary to comply with a legal obligation or to defend legal claims
  • necessary to protect the public interest or vital interest of others
  • you have expressly made information public
  • you have consented to the processing, which may be revoked at any time

Where we process your information on the basis of legitimate interests, we do so in order to:

Secure your Personal Data and Information

All records containing personal or financial information are considered to be proprietary and are afforded confidential treatment at all times. Modern Requirements is committed to the safety and security of your personal data and the information that you share with us and with the public.

Provide and Optimize Products and Services

We use your information to provide and improve our Products and Services, for identification verification, to provide support, for online and offline marketing including through third party tools such as Google Analytics, and for general research and analytics reporting. In doing so, we may learn which of our Products and Services you are using most, what you’re interested in, and to better enable you to use and access our Products and Services. As a core part of our business, Modern Requirements has a legitimate interest in enabling and customizing your experience of our Product and Services offerings.

Marketing and Product Communications

From time to time, Modern Requirements may communicate with you about commercial and other Product and Services offerings. In doing so, we provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of such messages at any time you choose via your account settings. Modern Requirements will not sell your personal information to enhance our marketing opportunities or profitability (except as may relate to a corporate event such as a sale or merger), and as we are committed to preventing spam, our direct marketing efforts are limited in scope and frequency. We engage in such activities as a legitimate business interest in order to promote key Products and Service offerings and provide you with every opportunity to unsubscribe from such communications or to further limit their scope and frequency. In short, while we want to communicate some key commercial communications with you and have determined it to be a legitimate interest for us to be able to do so, you have the final say in whether or not you would like to receive such commercial communications from us.

Core Business Operations

Modern Requirements may engage with third parties in business transactions including the buying and selling of assets, the auditing of our business practices and financials, and to engage in business development opportunities. These core activities may involve the processing and/or disclosure of some limited personal information which may be necessary and within our legitimate interests to develop the Modern Requirements brand and business. If we transfer any personal information in pursuing such a business transaction, we will always ensure that strict confidentiality measures are in place to protect your privacy interests.
