Our processing of personal information, such as your name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number, shall be undertaken consistent with the requirements of applicable privacy laws, including, but not limited to, the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), the UK General Data Protection Regulation (“UK GDPR”), and the Canadian Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (“PIPEDA”).
2. Information We Collect
2.1. Personal Information We Collect Directly from You
We receive personal information directly from you when you voluntarily provide us with such personal information, including, without limitation, the following:
- personal information (such as your e-mail address and phone number);
- company information (such as your company’s address); and
- other identifying information that you voluntarily choose to provide to us, including without limitation unique identifiers such as passwords, and personal information in messages you send to us.
We may also collect additional information, which may be personal information, as otherwise described to you at the point of collection or pursuant to your consent.
2.2. Information We Automatically Collect When You Use Our Site
In order to access and use certain areas or features of the My Pension Assistance Services, you consent to our collection and use of certain information about your use of the My Pension Assistance Services through the use of tracking technologies or by other passive means. Your consent to our access and use of this “passively collected” information includes, but is not limited to, the domain name of the website that allowed you to navigate to the My Pension Assistance Services, search engines used, the internet protocol (IP) address used, the length of time spent on the My Pension Assistance Services, the pages you looked at on the My Pension Assistance Services, other webpages you visited before and after visiting the My Pension Assistance Services, the type of device and/or internet browser you have, the frequency of your visits to the My Pension Assistance Services, and other relevant statistics (collectively “Traffic Data”):
3. How We Collect Information
We collect information (including personal information and Traffic Data) when you use and interact with the My Pension Assistance Services, and in some cases from third party sources. Such means of collection include:
- When you use the My Pension Assistance Services’ interactive tools and services;
- When you voluntarily provide information in free-form text boxes through the My Pension Assistance Services or through responses to surveys, questionnaires and the like;
- If you use a location-enabled browser, we may receive information about your location and mobile device, as applicable;
- Through Cookies, web beacons, analytics services and other tracking technology (collectively, “Tracking Tools”), as described below; and
- When you use the “Contact Us” function on the My Pension Assistance Services, send us an email or otherwise contact us.
4. Tracking Tools, Behavioral Advertising, and Opt Out Options
4.1. Tracking Tools
We may use tools outlined below in order to provide the My Pension Assistance Services, advertise to, and better understand users.
- Absolutely necessary Cookies. These Cookies are essential to enable you to move around a website and use its features. Without these Cookies, services you have asked for, like adding items to an online order, cannot be provided.
- Performance Cookies. These Cookies collect information about how you use our My Pension Assistance Services. Information collected includes, for example, the Internet browsers and operating systems used, the domain name of the website previously visited, the number of visits, average duration of visit, and pages viewed. These Cookies do not collect information that personally identifies you and only collect aggregated and anonymous information. Performance Cookies are used to improve the user-friendliness of a website and enhance your experience.
- Functionality Cookies. These Cookies allow the My Pension Assistance Services to remember choices you make (such as your username or ID, language preference, or the area or region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These Cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts, and other customizable parts of web pages. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for, such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these Cookies collect may be anonymized, and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
- Web Beacons: “Web Beacons” (a.k.a. clear GIFs or pixel tags) are tiny graphic image files embedded in a web page or email that may be used to collect information about the use of our My Pension Assistance Services, the websites of selected advertisers and the emails, special promotions or newsletters that we send. The information collected by Web Beacons allows us to analyze how many people are using the My Pension Assistance Services, using selected publishers’ websites or opening emails, and for what purpose, and also allows us to enhance our interest-based advertising (discussed further below).
- Web Service Analytics: We may use third-party analytics services in connection with the My Pension Assistance Services, including, for example, to register mouse clicks, mouse movements, scrolling activity and text typed into the My Pension Assistance Services. We use the information collected from these services to help make the My Pension Assistance Services easier to use and as otherwise set forth in Section 5 (How We Use Your Information). These analytics services generally do not collect personal information unless you voluntarily provide it and generally do not track your browsing habits across web services that do not use their services.
- Mobile Device Identifiers: As with other Tracking Tools, mobile device identifiers help My Pension Assistance learn more about our users’ demographics and internet behaviors in order to personalize and improve the Site. Mobile device identifiers are data stored on mobile devices that may track mobile device and data and activities occurring on and through it, as well as the applications installed on it. Mobile device identifiers enable collection of personal information (such as media access control, address and location) and Traffic Data.
4.2. Behavioral Advertising
We may use a type of advertising commonly known as interest-based or online behavioral advertising. This means that some of our partners use Tracking Tools to collect information about a user’s online activities to display My Pension Assistance ads to the user based on the user’s interests (“Behavioral Advertising”). Such partners may include third-party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks or platforms, traffic measurement service providers, marketing analytics service providers, and other third party service providers (collectively, “Advertising Service Providers”). Other Tracking Tools used by our partners may collect information when you use the Site, such as IP address, mobile device ID, operating system, browser, web page interactions, geographic location and demographic information, such as gender and age range. These Tracking Tools help My Pension Assistance learn more about our users’ demographics and internet behaviors.
4.3. Options for Opting out of Cookies and Mobile Device Identifiers
If we process Cookies based on your consent (as indicated at the time of collection of such data), you have the right to withdraw your consent at any point in time by contacting us at email@example.com. Please note, that if you exercise this right, you may have to then provide your consent on a case-by-case basis for the use by us or disclosure of certain Cookies, if such use or disclosure is necessary to enable you to utilize some or all of our services.
Some web browsers allow you to reject Cookies or to alert you when a Cookie is placed on your computer, tablet or mobile device. You may be able to reject mobile device identifiers by activating the appropriate setting on your mobile device. Although you are not required to accept My Pension Assistance’s Cookies or mobile device identifiers, if you block or reject them, you may not have access to all features available through the My Pension Assistance Services.
- You may opt out of receiving certain Cookies and certain trackers by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) opt out page or the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) opt out page, or by installing the DAA’s AppChoice app (for iOS; for Android) on your mobile computing device. When you use these opt-out features, an “opt-out” Cookie will be placed on your computer, tablet or mobile computing device indicating that you do not want to receive interest-based advertising from NAI or DAA member companies. If you delete Cookies on your computer, tablet or mobile computing device, you may need to opt out again. For information about how to opt out of interest-based advertising on mobile devices, please visit http://www.applicationprivacy.org/expressing-your-behavioral-advertising-choices-on-a-mobile-device. You will need to opt out of each browser and device for which you desire to apply these opt-out features.
- Even after opting out of Behavioral Advertising, you may still see My Pension Assistance advertisements that are not interest-based (i.e., not targeted toward you). Also, opting out does not mean that My Pension Assistance is no longer using Tracking Tools — My Pension Assistance still may collect information about your use of the My Pension Assistance Services even after you have opted out of Behavioral Advertising and may still serve advertisements to you via the My Pension Assistance Services based on information it collects via the My Pension Assistance Services.
4.4. How My Pension Assistance Responds to Browser “Do Not Track” (DNT) Signals
Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) or similar feature that signals to web services that a visitor does not want to have their online activity and behavior tracked. If a web service operator elects to respond to a particular DNT signal, the web service operator may refrain from collecting certain personal information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and there is currently no industry consensus as to what constitutes a DNT signal. For these reasons, many web service operators, including My Pension Assistance, do not proactively respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT signals, visit http://allaboutdnt.com.
5. How We Use Your Information
We do not engage in automated decision making. We may use information (including information that has been de-identified and/or aggregated) to better understand who uses the My Pension Assistance Services and how we can deliver a better user experience. We use information, including personal information, to provide the My Pension Assistance Services and to help improve the My Pension Assistance Services, to develop new services, and to advertise (for example, to display My Pension Assistance ads on other web services). Specifically, such use may include:
- Providing you with the products, services and information you request;
- Corresponding with you;
- Providing, maintaining, administering or expanding the My Pension Assistance Services, performing business analyses, or for other internal purposes to support, improve or enhance our business, the My Pension Assistance Services, and other products and services we offer;

- Showing you advertisements, including interest-based or online behavioral advertising;
- Using statistical information that we collect in any way permitted by law, including from third parties in connection with their commercial and marketing efforts;

By providing your e-mail and/or phone number and checking a box, clicking the “complete” button, or some other affirmative act, you are consenting to receive e-mails and/or calls and text messages, including live, prerecorded, and/or automated calls and text messages and alerts, to that phone number. After signing up, you will receive a confirmation e-mail or text message from My Pension Assistance on your mobile number. This agreement is not entered into as a term or requirement of any purchase or promotion. Normal message and data rates may apply. Message frequency may vary. Neither we nor the participating carriers guarantee that messages will be delivered. We may discontinue these programs at any time without notice.
6. How We Share Your Information
In certain circumstances, and in order to perform the My Pension Assistance Services, we may share certain information that we collect from you, as described in this section:
- We sell your personal information to third parties that have an agreement in place with My Pension Assistance to enable such third parties to schedule appointments with you for the services you request through the My Pension Assistance Services.

- To determine if users have interacted with content across multiple devices and to match such devices, we work with partners who analyze device activity data and/or rely on your information (including demographic, geographic and interest-based data). To supplement this analysis, we also provide de-identified data to these partners. Based on this data, we may then display targeted advertisements across devices that we believe are associated or use this data to further analyze usage of the My Pension Assistance Services across devices.
- We may transfer your personal information to another company in connection with a proposed merger, sale, acquisition or other change of ownership or control by or of My Pension Assistance (whether in whole or in part). Should one of these events occur, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you before your information becomes subject to different privacy and security policies and practices.
7. Storage and Security of Information
Please note that any information you send to us electronically, while using the My Pension Assistance Services or otherwise interacting with us, may not be secure when it is transmitted to us. We recommend that you do not use unsecure channels to communicate sensitive or confidential information to us. Please be aware though that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and we cannot guarantee “perfect security.” Any information you send us through any means is transmitted at your own risk.

8.1. Information You Provide
You can always choose whether or not to provide personal information through the My Pension Assistance Services.
