Effective Date: January 16, 2019.

Mobilis Strategic Advisors understands that your privacy is important to you. We are committed to respecting your privacy and protecting your personal data, which is any information that is capable of identifying you as an individual person, collected via our website. This Privacy Policy describes how we handle and protect your personal data in connection with our website, in our capacity as data controllers. Please see our Terms of use for more information about our online terms and policies in general.

Information we collect

Mobilis collects personal data when you register for newsletters or blog updates. The personal data collected varies and may include information that you provide, such as your name and e-mail address. For instance, by registering for Mobilis newsletters or blog articles, you agree to receive the correspondence to which you have subscribed at the e-mail address that you provided at registration. Only Mobilis or its agents will contact you using this e-mail address. We will send e-mails to this address related to your registration.

We may also automatically collect information about the devices you use to interact with our Sites. The information we automatically collect may include IP address, device identifier, web browser, and browsing information collected through cookies, web beacons, pixels, clear gifs, and other similar technologies (collectively “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies”) on our Sites. We may also automatically collect information about how you use the Sites, such as what you have searched for and viewed on the Sites. The information automatically collected will be associated with any personal data you have provided.

Use of information

The personal data we collect may be used where we have your specific consent to do so, or where Mobilis has a legitimate interest in or other legal basis for processing such information. In some situations, the collection of personal data may be required for the operation of the Sites or to provide certain services or products. Mobilis uses your personal data to fulfill your requests for information, process your requests to participate in conferences and events, personalize content that you view or receive on the Sites, evaluate and improve our services, distribute newsletters and alerts to you, recruit and evaluate job applicants, analyze the Sites’ performance and functioning, publish your letters to the editor or comments, prevent fraud, enforce our terms of use, comply with all applicable laws and corporate reporting obligations, enforce Mobilis’ agreements, and accomplish other purposes you may initiate or request. We may keep any of your personal data on file and use it to contact you.

Mobilis may use first and third party Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies to manage our Sites and our services and collect analytics about how you use them. The information provided throughout this Privacy Policy about cookies also applies to these other tracking technologies. Please refer to our Cookie Policy for more details regarding our use of cookies.

Our website does not collect personal data about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. Therefore, “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers do not apply to our website, and we do not alter any of our data collection and use practices upon receipt of such a signal.

Use of information collected via mobile devices

In connection with our mobile applications, Mobilis may use third party service providers to analyze non-personally identifiable user activity to fix errors, monitor usage, and improve the performance of the mobile applications. For example, Mobilis receives reports on some of our mobile applications’ aggregate usage and browsing patterns, including information about the type of device used and articles accessed. Mobilis also receives reports on certain errors occurring within mobile applications. None of these third party service providers gathers information in a manner intended to identify any particular user personally.

In addition, our Mobilis Insights blog offers a personalized list of recommendations directing you to Mobilis content that we think you will find interesting. Recommendations are based solely on what you have viewed in the Insights blog. A unique user identifier that is generated by the app helps personalize your experience and tracks the articles that you read on the blog. We do not share your viewing history or trends with other users or any external third parties (i.e., persons or entities that are not affiliates or third party service providers of Mobilis).

Data recipients and international data transfers

Mobilis may provide access to your personal data to third party service providers engaged by Mobilis to provide services related to the website, provided that such third-party service providers will first agree to maintain the strict confidentiality of such information and provide the same level of data security as provided by Mobilis.

In addition, we may disclose information about you:

  • If we are required to do so by law or legal process;
  • To law enforcement authorities or other government officials;
  • When we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity;
  • If disclosure is necessary to protect the vital interests of a person;
  • To enforce our Terms of use;
  • To protect our property, services and legal rights;
  • To prevent fraud against Mobilis, our subsidiaries, affiliates and/or business partners;
  • To support auditing, compliance, and corporate governance functions; or
  • To comply with any and all applicable laws.

We maintain processes designed to ensure that any processing of personal data by third-party service providers is consistent with this Privacy Policy and protects the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of your personal data.

In addition, we may disclose or transfer your personal data in the event of a re-organization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, or other transfer or disposition of all or any portion of our business.

Link to third-party sites

Mobilis may provide links to third-party websites or information as a service to our users. If you use these links, you will leave the website. Such links do not constitute or imply an endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation by Mobilis of the third party, the third-party website, or the information contained therein, and Mobilis shall not be responsible or liable for your use thereof. Such use shall be subject to the terms of use and privacy policies applicable to those sites.

Social networking

The website may allow you to sign into and associate your social network accounts including, but not limited to, Twitter and LinkedIn with Mobilis. The website also may allow you to log into a Mobilis account using certain social network account credentials.

By associating your social network account with Mobilis or logging into a Mobilis account using your social network account credentials, you give us permission to access information that you have made available in your public profile for that social network account. The information available in your public profile varies based on the social network and your settings, but may include your email address, real name, profile picture, gender, and location. We use the information we receive from your social network account in accordance with the social network’s terms of use and this Privacy Policy. Please refer to the privacy settings in your social network account for information about what data is shared with Mobilis and other connected applications and to manage the data that is shared through your account, including information about your activities using our website.

If you would like to disconnect a social media account from us, refer to the settings of that social network account and its provider.

Security

Mobilis has implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security to protect personal data from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Only authorized Mobilis personnel and third party service providers are provided access to personal data, and these employees and service providers are required to treat this information as confidential. Despite these precautions however, Mobilis cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to your personal data.

Data retention policy

Mobilis retains personal data, as necessary, for the duration of the relevant business relationship. We may also retain personal data for longer than the duration of the business relationship should we need to retain it to protect ourselves against legal claims, use it for analysis or historical record-keeping, or comply with our information management policies and schedules. If you request that we delete your personal data, Mobilis will make reasonable attempts to delete all instances of the information in their entirety. For requests for access, corrections, or deletion, please refer to the “Your Rights” section of this Privacy Policy.

Children

The website is not designed for or directed at children 13 years of age or younger, and Mobilis does not intentionally collect or maintain personal data about anyone under this age.

Your rights

Where granted by local law, you may have the right to request access to the personal data that we have collected about you for the purposes of reviewing, modifying, or requesting deletion of the data. You may also have the right to request a copy of the personal data that we have collected about you and to have any inaccuracies in that data corrected. In certain circumstances, you may also request that we cease processing your personal data.

If you would like to make a request to access, review, or correct the personal data we have collected about you, or to discuss how we process your personal data, please contact us. To help protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as requiring a password and user ID, before granting access to your personal data. We will make reasonable attempts to promptly investigate, comply with, or otherwise respond to your requests as may be required by applicable law. Different laws may prevent us from providing access to your personal data or otherwise fully complying with your request depending upon the circumstances and the request, such as for example, where producing your information may reveal the identity of someone else. We reserve the right to charge an appropriate fee for complying with your request where allowed by applicable law, and/or deny your requests where they may be manifestly unfounded, and/or excessive, or otherwise objectionable or unwarranted under applicable law.

In addition, and where granted by local law, you have the legal right to lodge a complaint with a competent data protection authority.

You may also unsubscribe from mailing lists or blog. To do so, please either follow instructions on the page of the website on which you have provided such information, subscribed or registered or contact us at the address provide at the bottom of this Privacy Policy.
