Business Transfers. As we continue to develop our business, we may buy, merge, or partner with other companies. In such transactions, (including in contemplation of such transactions) user information may be among the transferred assets. If a portion or all of our assets are sold or transferred to a third-party, customer information (including your email address) would likely be one of the transferred business assets. If such transfer is subject to additional mandatory restrictions under applicable laws, including obtaining consent from you, we will comply with such restrictions.
The Rho Service and the purposes for which your Personal Information is processed may cause your Personal Information to be processed and/or stored outside of your country of residence, including the United States. The locations to which your Personal Information is transferred may have different privacy protections than those in your jurisdiction of residence.
By supplying your Personal Information to Rho either directly or indirectly, you consent to your information being transferred across international borders to Rho and its affiliates, Third Party Servicers, and agents. Vendors and other outside contractors we engage are subject to our contractual requirements for safeguarding Personal Information.
At Rho, security is a priority. We use certain physical, organizational, and technical safeguards that are designed to protect Personal Information submitted to us, and we employ appropriate measures, including advanced technology, to protect Personal Information against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. These measures may include, among others, physical access security, administrative security measures, data encryption, firewalls, and other appropriate technologies. Rho reviews and enhances its security systems as necessary.
Notwithstanding Rho’s efforts, no security measure is perfect or impenetrable and no method of transmission over the internet or electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, Rho cannot guarantee complete security of the transmission or storage of your Personal Information. It is important that you maintain the security and control of your account credentials, and not share your password with anyone. We offer our Users two-factor authentication which is designed to protect their account. Please make use of this added protection.

They can also be used to monitor Site or Rho Service activity, mitigate risk, measure the effectiveness of promotions and prevent potential fraud. If you choose to disable cookies, your use of the Site or the Rho Service may be limited or otherwise affected.
By using the Site and the Rho Service, you agree to the placement of cookies, beacons, and similar technologies in your browser and on emails in accordance with this Policy. The information collected in this manner includes IP address, browser characteristics, device IDs and characteristics, operating system version, language preferences, referring URLs, location data, and information about your usage of the Rho Service.
We may use third-party web analytics services (such as those of Google Analytics) on the Site and Rho Service to collect and analyze usage information through cookies and similar tools; engage in auditing, research, or reporting; assist with fraud prevention; and provide certain features to you. To prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on by clicking here. If you receive an email from us, we may use certain analytics tools, such as clear GIFs to capture data such as when you open our message or click on any links or banners our email contains.

We use vendors who collect information through cookies and similar technologies about how individuals browse our Site as well as the web over time to display online advertising that is more tailored to their interests. This is called online targeted advertising. If you are interested in information about targeted advertising and how you can generally control cookies from being put on your computer to deliver tailored advertising, you may visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out link, the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Opt-Out link, or Your Online Choices to opt-out of receiving tailored advertising from companies that participate in those programs. To opt out of Google Analytics for display advertising or customize Google display network ads, visit the Google Ads Settings page. We do not control these opt-out links or whether any particular company chooses to participate in these opt-out programs. We are not responsible for any choices you make using these mechanisms or the continued availability or accuracy of these mechanisms. You can also opt out of certain online advertising activities by following the instructions in the "Your Rights and Choices" section below.
Please note that if you exercise the choices above, you may still see advertising when you use the Services, but it will not be tailored to you based on your online behavior over time.
Notice Concerning Do Not Track
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers.

The disclosure of your information to these third parties to assist us in providing these services may be considered a “sale” of Personal Information under applicable law or the processing/sharing of Personal Information for targeted advertising purposes.

PRIVACY INFORMATION FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
If you are a California resident, the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) requires us to provide you with the following additional information about: (1) the purpose for which we use each category of Personal Information we collect; and (2) the categories of third parties to which we (a) disclose such Personal Information for a business purpose, (b) “share” Personal Information for “cross-context behavioral advertising,” and/or (c) “sell” such Personal Information. Under the CCPA, “sharing” is defined as the targeting of advertising to a consumer based on that consumer’s Personal Information obtained from the consumer’s activity across websites, and “selling” is defined as the disclosure of Personal Information to third parties in exchange for monetary or other valuable consideration. Our use of third-party analytics services and online advertising services, may result in the disclosure of online identifiers (e.g., cookie data, IP addresses, device identifiers, and usage information) in a way that may be considered a “sale” or "sharing" under the CCPA.
The following chart details these activities:

The CCPA also allows you to limit the use or disclosure of your “sensitive personal information” (as defined in the CCPA) if your sensitive personal information is used for certain purposes. Please note that we do not use or disclose sensitive personal information other than for business purposes for which you cannot opt out under the CCPA.
