7. BASIS FOR USING YOUR INFORMATION
We collect and use your personal information for a number of different reasons depending on the type of information and how such information is collected. The basis for collecting your personal information typically falls in one or more of the following categories:
· Contract. We may collect your personal information because you have entered into an agreement with us.
· Consent. In some instances, we’ll ask for your consent to use your information for specific purposes. If we do, we’ll make sure you can revoke your consent in our Website, through your device permissions, or by contacting us.
· Legitimate interest. Another reason we might use your personal information is because we have, or a third-party has, a legitimate interest in doing so. For example, we need to use your information to provide and improve our Website and services, including protecting your account, providing customer support, and helping you find content we think you’ll like. We also use some information about you to try and show you ads you’ll find interesting. Our interests do not outweigh your right to privacy, so we only rely on the legitimate interest basis when we believe the way we are using your data doesn’t significantly impact your right to privacy, or there is a compelling reason to do so.
· Legal obligation. We may be required to use your personal information to comply with a legal obligation.
8. STORING YOUR INFORMATION
We will retain your personal information for as long as your account with us is active or longer if needed to provide services to you.
In the case where you have any correspondence with us, we will retain those details until we have deemed the information no longer necessary, or, if resolved, you request it to be deleted.
If we are legally required to do so, or if it is reasonably necessary to meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our terms and conditions, we may also retain some of your personal information for a period of time, even after you have closed your account.
9. TRANSFERS OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA TO OTHER COUNTRIES
The information Company collects, including registration and payment information, is housed on servers in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that information we collect will be processed and stored in the United States, and the data protection and privacy laws in the United States may offer a lower level of protections than in your country or region.
10. CCPA PRIVACY NOTICE FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
If you are a California resident, as defined in the California Code of Regulations, you have rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “CCPA”) as outlined in this Section. We do not sell your personal information.
10.1. Your Rights and How to Exercise Them. The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.
(a) Your Rights.
(i) Right to Know and Data Portability. You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past twelve (12) months (the “right to know”). Once we validate your request, we will disclose to you the specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you, including the categories of personal information that we may have disclosed about you, as well as the categories of third parties.
(ii) Right to Delete. You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions (the “right to delete”). Once we validate your request, we will review your request to see if an exception allowing us to retain the information applies.
(b) Exercising Your Rights. To exercise your rights to know or delete described above, please submit a request by either emailing us at ContactUs@HikingBingo.com or mailing us at 315 S Coast Hwy 101, Ste U37, Encinitas, CA 92024.

If you do not receive confirmation within the 10-day timeframe, please contact us at ContactUs@HikingBingo.com. We will make the disclosure within 45 days of receiving your request, unless we request an extension. In the event that we reasonably need a 45-day extension, we will notify you of the extension within the initial 45-day period. Your request to know must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative and describe your request with sufficient details that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
10.2. Personal Information. Our Website collects information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or device (“personal information”).

(d) Commercial information, such as the record of any memberships purchased with us.
(e) Internet or other electronic network activity information, such as session logs.

According to California law, personal information does not include (a) publicly available information from government records, (b) de-identified or aggregated consumer information, or (c) information excluded from the CCPA’s scope.
10.4. Sharing Personal Information. We may disclose your personal information to a third-party for a business purpose. When we disclose personal information for a business purpose, we enter a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract. Specifically, we may share your information with our service providers who support, improve, promote, and secure our Website, or process payment.
10.5. Non-Discrimination. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.
11. ACCESSING AND CORRECTING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

12. DATA SECURITY
We take commercially reasonable steps to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet and mobile platforms is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted through our Website.
Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures we provide.
