  1. How we collect personal information

Personal information is any information that can be used to identify an individual, including name, email address, phone number, login information or geographic location.

  1. Information sharing

Acuity may disclose personal information to service providers we engage for the purposes of operating our business, delivering, improving and customising our products or services, sending marketing and communications related to our business, payment processing, and for other legitimate purposes permitted by applicable law or otherwise with your consent. Personal information handled by these service providers is subject to their terms of use and privacy policies.

If Acuity sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, you agree that Acuity may transfer your personal information to a third party as part of that transaction.

In all cases Acuity requires all unaffiliated third parties to treat personal information as confidential. Acuity will not provide personal information to third parties for their own marketing purposes without your consent.

If you participate in a discussion or provide comments related to Acuity on a social media or other public platform, you should be aware that the information will be made broadly available to others, and could be used to contact you, send you unsolicited messages, or for purposes neither Acuity nor you have control over.

Personal information is stored in electronic format in the cloud in the United Kingdom and the United States where Acuity conducts business.

  1. Retention of the information

Acuity will retain your personal information as needed to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected. We will retain and use your personal information as necessary to comply with our business requirements, legal obligations, resolve disputes, protect our assets and enforce our agreements.
