Applicability of Privacy and Security Policy Our Privacy and Security Policy applies to all individuals and entities from whom or for the benefit of whom we receive PII, whether it be collected through our corporate owned websites; Apps; traditional mailing and/or faxing channels; telephone or electronic communications; from some other medium; and/or from our clients.

Sircles Media, Inc. complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States.

Sircles Media makes every effort to comply fully with the applicable principles of the European Union General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"). It also subjects itself to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission, Department of Commerce, Department of Transportation, and/or any other applicable enforcement and/or investigatory authority. PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED AND HOW IT IS USED Scope of PII Personally Identifiable Information or PII is any information that would, by itself, identify you or tend to identify you as a particular individual or entity. This PII may include, but not be limited to, your name, your address, credit card number, bank account information, and/or personal identification number (such as a social security number or driver's license number). PII does not include any public information that is readily attainable through federal, state or local public record distribution channels. PII does not include any information that, by itself, could not identify you as a particular individual or entity. PII also does not include raw data that becomes aggregated for statistical purposes and cannot, thereafter, be identified with you as a unique individual or entity. Sircles Media considers your Internet Protocol ("IP") address to be PII and will treat it as such. Information Collected Sircles Media collects information that is considered PII and other information that, by itself, would not be considered personally identifiable information ("Non-PII"). When you create an account and register for any of our Sircles Services (whether through a Website, App, or other portal), we collect information submitted by you including, but not limited to, your full name, company name (if applicable), gender, email address, zip code, phone number, and IP address. We use this information to identify our customers and send notifications related to the use of our Sircles Services. We reserve the right to request additional information from you. For our paying customers, Sircles Media shall also collect information relating to one or more of your financial accounts for purposes of processing payments to provide you with Sircles Services. This information may likely contain both PII and Non-PII depending on the nature of the account holder information. Collecting and Using Personally Identifiable Information Sircles Media will explain how it intends to use PII either before it collects the information (such as in this Privacy and Security Policy) or contemporaneously with the solicitation of such information. Exceptions may exist where the intended use is obvious to a reasonable person. Generally, Sircles Media collects personal identifiable information when an individual registers with or uses any of the Sircles Services. This information typically includes, at a minimum, a full name, company name (if applicable), email address, phone number, mobile phone number, and any additional information provided by the account holder that could identify that account holder. We will use the PII collected only for the purposes explained to you. Further, we limit the collection of PII to only that information which is necessary for the purposes explained to you. Generally, we use the PII collected and/or received about you in connection with our Apps, Website, Sircles Services, and their various features. We also use information collected and/or received about you in connection with other users and advertisers that purchase ads through the Apps or on the Website. For example, we may use the information we receive about you (a) as part of our efforts to keep Sircles Media safe and secure; (b) to provide Sircles Services; (c) to make suggestions to you and other users on Sircles Media; and (d) provide support. Granting us this permission not only allows us to provide Sircles Media as it exists today, but it also allows us to provide you with innovative features and services we develop in the future that use the PII we receive about you in new ways. As an additional example, we currently do not use data collected to target specific ads we think you would like but rather use your data such as GPS location to stream ads from advertisers that are determined to be near you. The foregoing being said, we reserve the right to use your data for targeting of ads at a later time. Further, for purposes of clarification, we also stream ads from advertisers that may not be near you. We may use your PII to communicate with you for the foregoing and other reasons by email, text message, phone call, or other electronic, written or oral communication method, unless you expressly indicate to Sircles Media not to use a particular method of communication. While you are allowing us to use the PII we receive about you, you always own all of your information. Your trust is important to us, which is why we don't share PII we receive about you with others unless we have received your express permission for the information to be used for such purpose. Aggregate Information. Additionally, we may use aggregated information derived from PII to improve the Sircles Services and any related matters thereto. Third Parties. Unless we are required to do so by law, we shall not obtain your consent before collecting PII about you from parties other than Sircles Media. Rather, Sircles Media shall presume that you have previously provided such consent to any such third party from whom Sircles Media obtains such information. This only applies to information provided by third parties to Sircles Media. Sircles Media does not provide third parties with access to your account information and only shares your personal information with third parties where we have your consent to do so. Restricted Use. In the normal course of its business operations, Sircles Media restricts the use of your PII to Sircles Media's personnel and its Strategic Partners. However, by using Sircles Services, you may necessarily disclose PII to others when they access your information, profiles, and other Content. Sale of Information. We shall not sell your PII in the normal course of business operations. This paragraph shall not by itself restrict the transfer of your PII to a third party for purposes discussed in the subsection on Business Transfer below. We may also use the PII you provide in registering with and using Sircles Media to inform you by electronic mail, phone, text or other communication method of additional products and services about which you might be interested, which may include our periodic e-newsletters and other promotional communications from Sircles Media. If another user uploads their contact list, we may combine information from that user's contact list with other information we have collected about you. We may collect information about you from other users and our affiliates. App developers, publishers, advertisers and other third parties may share information with us as well. We may use this information, among other ways, to help measure the performance or target ads to you. Disclosing Personal Information We do not share PII we obtain from your use of our Sircles Services with others except as described in this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use. Sircles Media may use PII in the normal course of providing the Sircles Services; to operate or improve the Apps, Website and/or Sircles Services; to outsource certain services to Strategic Partners; to complete a transaction that has been requested; to develop aggregate information; and/or as otherwise disclosed to you. Sircles Media may provide PII to other persons where (a) we have your consent; (b) the disclosure is necessary to complete a transaction requested; (c) we have obtained information from a third party (presuming that you have previously provided such consent to any such third party from whom Sircles Media obtains such information); (d) we are required or permitted to do so by law; (e) the Apps, Website and/or Sircles Services are used in a manner that violates the Terms of Use or uses for purposes other than those for which they were specifically intended; and/or (f) the terms of this Privacy and Security Policy and/or the Terms of Use otherwise permit and/or provide for such disclosure. In particular, by the very nature of the Sircles Services, information submitted by our customers will be shared with other customers as applicable to the customers' particular use of Sircles Services. In some cases, Sircles Media Customers may be able to download your videos and other public information, and store them on, their computers and servers. Other Sircles Media Customers may also be able to use shared links by which they provide related parties who might not also be Sircles Media Customers access to your content. Strategic Partners. Sircles Media may employ, engage or retain certain trusted third parties ("Strategic Partners") to perform functions and/or provide services on its behalf, such as web hosting, integrated services, or advertising. Sircles Media will share PII with these Strategic Partners only to the extent necessary to perform the functions and/or provide the services for which they have been employed, engaged or retained. Sircles Media shall also secure contractual obligations from our Strategic Partners to maintain the privacy and security of the PII shared with them at the same level of privacy protection as outlined in the Privacy Shield Principles. Upon notice of unauthorized processing by a Strategic Partner, Sircles Media will take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized processing. Some of the Strategic Partners that may receive access to your PII to provide the Sircles Services have been listed below. Business Transfers. Sircles Media reserves the right to sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including PII, in connection with a sale of assets; a merger, acquisition, or reorganization; or, filing for bankruptcy. You will have the opportunity to opt out of any such transfer if the planned processing of your information by the purchaser differs materially from that set forth in this Privacy and Security Policy. Legal Compliance. Sircles Media may be required to disclose any information about you and/or Content created by you in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We may also disclose any information about you and/or Content created by you as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to: (1) comply with an order from a court of competent jurisdiction, regulatory agency, and/or other governmental authority; (2) respond to claims, court orders, or other legal process (including subpoenas); (3) to enforce the terms of this and other Sircles Media agreements as well as to protect the property and rights of Sircles Media, its Strategic Partners or other third parties; (4) to protect, in Sircles Media's sole discretion, the public or any person from harm; (5) to investigate, prevent, stop, or take other action regarding any action perceived to be fraudulent, illegal, unethical, or legally actionable in Sircles Media's sole discretion; and/or, generally, (6) to comply with the law. Notice. Unless restricted from doing so, Sircles Media will attempt to notify you before it releases any of your PII or Content pursuant to (1) and (2) in paragraph 2.4 (h) only. In such cases, Sircles Media will also provide you with general information on how you may seek to block such a release of information and/or direct you to resources that can provide such general information. The provision of such general information to you is not and should not be construed as providing you with legal advice. Additionally, Sircles Media is under no other obligation to assist you in challenging or opposing a release of your information Onward Transfer Liability. Sircles Media may be liable for onward transfers of personal data to third parties in violation of this policy and the Privacy Shield. Non-Personally Identifiable Information In addition to collecting PII as previously described, Sircles Media also collects other non-PII. Non-PII collected by Sircles Media may be utilized without restriction Although non-PII can be used in a number of ways, you can be assured that the use of the non-PII cannot identify you as a particular individual. Because non-PII cannot be used to identify you, Sircles Media may in its discretion provide non-PII to other persons or entities.

The Controller shall be entitled to demand the modification, deletion, blocking and making available of personal data during and after the applicable term in accordance with the further specifications of such agreement on return and deletion of personal data. The terms of this DPA shall equally apply if testing or maintenance of automatic processes or of processing equipment is performed on behalf of Controller, and access to personal data in such context cannot be excluded. 2. Obligations of Processor The Processor shall collect, process and use personal data only within the scope of Controller's instructions. If the Processor thinks that an instruction of the Controller infringes the E.U. General Data Protection Regulation or the U.S.-E.U. Privacy Shield protections, it shall point this out to the Controller without delay. The Processor shall structure the Processor's internal corporate organization to ensure compliance with the E.U. General Data Protection Regulation or the U.S.-E.U. Privacy Shield protections. Such measures hereunder shall include, but not be limited to, a) preventing unauthorized access to personal data processing systems (physical access control); b) preventing unauthorized processing or use of personal data (logical access control); c) ensuring that persons entitled to use a personal data processing system gain access only to such personal data as they are entitled to access, and that, in the course of processing or use and after storage, personal data cannot be read, copied, modified or deleted without authorization (data access control); d) ensuring that personal data cannot be read, copied, modified or deleted without authorization during electronic transmission, transport or storage on storage media, and that the target entities for any transfer of personal data by means of data transmission facilities can be established and verified (data transfer control); e) ensuring proper records are maintained to document whether and by whom personal data has been entered into, modified in, or removed from personal data processing systems (entry control); f) ensuring that personal data is processed solely in accordance with the instructions of the Controller (control of instructions); g) ensuring that personal data is protected against accidental destruction or loss (availability control); h) ensuring that personal data collected for different purposes can be processed separately (separation control); An overview of the above listed technical and organizational measures shall be attached to this DPA as APPENDIX 2. The Processor shall ensure that any personnel entrusted with processing Controller's personal data have undertaken to comply with the principle of data secrecy in accordance with the E.U. General Data Protection Regulation and the U.S.-E.U. Privacy Shield protections and have been duly instructed on them. Sircles Media has identified a Data Protection Officer in its Privacy and Security Policy. Processor shall, without undue delay, inform the Controller in case of a serious interruption of operations or violations by the Processor or persons employed by it of provisions to protect personal data or of terms specified in this DPA. In such an event, the Processor shall implement the measures necessary to secure the Personal Data and to mitigate potential adverse effects on the data subjects without undue delay. The Controller shall retain title as to any carrier media provided to Processor as well as any copies or reproductions thereof. The Processor shall store such media safely and protect them against unauthorized access by third parties. The Processor shall, upon Controller's request, provide to Controller all information on Controller's personal data and personal information. Processor shall be obliged to securely delete any test and scrap material based on an instruction issued by the Controller on a case-by-case basis. Where the Controller so decides, the Processor shall hand over such material to the Controller or store it on the Controller's behalf. The Processor shall be obliged to audit and verify the fulfillment of the above-entitled obligations and shall maintain an adequate documentation of such verification. 3. Obligations of Controller The Controller and the Processor shall be separately responsible for conforming with such statutory data protection regulations as are applicable to them in accordance with the E.U. General Data Protection Regulation and the U.S.-E.U. Privacy Shield protections. The Controller shall inform the Processor without undue delay and comprehensively about any errors or irregularities related to statutory provisions on the processing of personal data detected during a verification of the results of such processing. The Controller shall, upon instruction or termination or expiration of the Terms, stipulate, within a period of time set by the Processor, the reasonable measures to return data carrier media or to delete stored data. 4. Enquiries by Data Subjects to Controller Where the Controller, based upon applicable data protection law, is obliged to provide information to an individual about the collection, processing or use or its personal data, the Processor shall assist the Controller in making this information available, provided that: (i) the Controller has instructed the Processor in writing to do so, and (ii) the Controller reimburses the Processor for the costs arising from this assistance. Where a data subject requests the Processor to correct, delete or block personal data, the Processor shall refer such data subject to the Controller. 5. Subcontractors The Processor shall be entitled to subcontract the Processor's obligations defined in the Policies to third parties only with the Controller's written consent (which shall be affirmed by a Controller's agreement to the policies). Controller consents to Processor's subcontracting to Processor's affiliated companies and third parties, as listed in SCHEDULE 2, of Processor's contractual obligations hereunder. If the Processor intends to instruct subcontractors other than the companies listed in SCHEDULE 2, the Processor must notify the Controller thereof in writing (email to the email address(es) on record in Processor's account information for Controller is sufficient) and must give the Controller the possibility to object against the instruction of the subcontractor within 30 days after being notified. The objection must be based on reasonable grounds (e.g. if the Controller proves that significant risks for the protection of its Personal Data exist at the subcontractor). If the Processor and the Controller are unable to resolve such objection, either party may terminate the Terms of Use by providing written notice to the other party. The provisions of this section also apply if the Processor uses a subcontractor in a third country. The Controller hereby authorizes the Processor, to agree in the name and on behalf of the Controller with a subcontractor which processes or uses the personal data of the Controller outside of the EEA, to enter into EU Standard Contractual Clauses for the Transfer of Personal Data to Processors Established in Third Countries dated 5 February 2010. This applies accordingly from the date of this authorization with respect to EU Standard Contractual Clauses (Processors) already concluded by the Processor with such subcontractors. 6. Duties to Inform Where the Processor's personal data becomes subject to search and seizure, an attachment order, confiscation during bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings, or similar events or measures by third parties while being processed, the Processor shall inform the Controller without undue delay. Processor shall, without undue delay, notify to all pertinent parties in such action, that any personal data affected is the Controller's sole property and area of responsibility. In case of any conflict, the regulations of this DPA shall take precedence over the regulations of the Policies. Where individual regulations of this DPA are invalid or unenforceable, the validity and enforceability of the other regulations of this DPA shall not be affected. The Standard Contractual Clauses in SCHEDULE 1 will apply to the processing of Personal Data by Processor under the Policies. Upon the incorporation of this DPA into the Terms of Use, the parties are agreeing to the Standard Contractual Clauses in SCHEDULE 1 and all appendixes attached. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between this DPA and the Standard Contractual Clauses, the Standard Contractual Clauses shall prevail. The Standard Contractual Clauses apply only to personal data that is transferred from the European Economic Area (EEA) to outside the EEA, either directly or via onward transfer, to any country or recipient: (i) not recognized by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data (as described in the EU Data Protection Directive), and (ii) not covered by a suitable framework recognized by the relevant authorities or courts as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data, including but not limited to binding corporate rules for processors. 7. Parties to this DPA This DPA is an amendment to and forms part of the Privacy and Security Policy. The legal entity agreeing to this DPA as Controller represents that it is authorized to agree to and enter into this DPA for, and is agreeing to this DPA solely on behalf of, the Controller.
