Agents, Consultants and Third-Party Service Providers:

Almanac, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.

As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, personal data may be part of the transferred assets.

Related Companies:

We may also share your personal data with our corporate affiliates and subsidiaries, if any, for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Almanac may disclose your personal data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Almanac, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site, the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.

Links to other websites

The Site may have links to third-party websites, which may have privacy policies that differ from our own. We are not responsible for the practices of such sites, nor does any such link imply that Almanac endorses or has reviewed the third party site subject to such link. We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies.

Children and minors

Our Service is not offered to anyone under the age of 18 ("Children").

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18.

If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.

Data security

We have taken certain physical, administrative, and technical steps to safeguard the information we collect from and about our customers and Site visitors. While we make reasonable efforts to help ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee our security measures. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any personal data to the Company via the Internet.

CCPA Rights Disclosure

If you are a California resident, the CCPA allows you to make certain requests about your personal information. Specifically, the CCPA allows you to request us to:

  • Inform you about the categories of personal information we collect or disclose about you and the categories of sources of such information;
  • Inform you about the business or commercial purpose for collecting personal information and the categories of third parties with whom we share/disclose personal information (which is also disclosed in this Privacy Policy);
