Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Fyntex does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete the information we have stored as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us as indicated in the "Contact Us" section below.

If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, you acknowledge that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction, consistent with our legal obligations governing the transfer of such data.
Data Security and Integrity
Fyntex is concerned about the security of your data. We have implemented technical and organizational security measures that are designed to help protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, use and modification. From time-to-time, we review our security procedures to consider appropriate new technologies and methods.
Please be aware, though, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot ensure, and do not warrant or guarantee, that the information you transmit to Fyntex will remain secure, nor do we guarantee that this information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, destroyed or used in an unauthorized manner.
If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may also post a notice on the Site or Fyntex Services if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive a notice of a security breach in writing. If you have any questions about the security of your personal information, please contact us as indicated in the ‘Contact Us’ section below.
Third Party Sites, Services and Applications
Partner Pages. Some of our partner pages may have the look and feel of being on Fyntex.com; however some information collected on those pages may be collected by, or sent to, our partners. Information collected by, or sent to, our partners is subject to their respective privacy policies.
Notice to End Users of the Fyntex Services. The Fyntex Services are primarily intended for use by individuals and organizations. Where the Fyntex Services are made available to you through an organization (such as your employer), that organization is responsible for administering the accounts over which it has control. If this is the case, please direct your data privacy questions and requests to your administrator. We are not responsible for the privacy or security practices of your administrator's organization, which may be different than this policy.
Notice to Users of our Customers’ Websites and Digital Product. As noted above, when Fyntex’s customers use the Fyntex Services as part of their own websites, apps, and digital products, they may collect information from you using our services, but they remain responsible for their own privacy and security practices. We are not responsible for our customers' privacy and security practices, which may differ from ours. If you have used one of our customers’ sites or products, and you would like to access, correct or delete the personal data collected through that product, you should direct your request to the applicable customer. For further information, please request access to our Opt Out Policy page.
California Resident Notices
California Consumer Privacy Act
Effective January 1, 2021, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “CCPA”) allows consumers who are California residents, upon a verifiable consumer request, to request from a business:
- Delete any personal information about the consumer which the business has collected from the consumer;
- Disclose to the consumer certain information about the personal information that the business collects from the consumer; and
- Direct a business that sells personal information about the consumer to third parties not to sell the consumer’s personal information.
Fyntex does not sell any consumer personal information to third parties. To submit an data access or data deletion request, please contact us at [email protected] or (844) 655-1031. Please note that these requests apply only to information that Fyntex holds as a “controller.” If your request relates to the personal data collected through a customer’s websites or digital products, you should direct your request to the owner of that website or product. Please note that you must verify your identity and request before Fyntex will process your request. You may be required to provide email confirmation or other information in order for us to verify your identity. Consistent with California law, if you choose to exercise your rights, you will not receive discriminatory treatment by Fyntex.
Under certain circumstances, you may designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf. In order to designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf, you must provide a valid power of attorney, your valid government government issued identification, and the authorized agent’s valid government issued identification to allow Fyntex to verify that the agent is authorized to make the request on your behalf.
If you have any questions about Fyntex’s privacy policies and practices, please contact us at [email protected].
California’s Shine the Light Law
CA Civil Code § 1798.83 permits California residents to request and obtain from Fyntex once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom Fyntex may have disclosed their personal information (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of personal information disclosed to those third parties. As a general policy, Fyntex does not share personal information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes without your prior consent. Accordingly, you can prevent disclosure of your personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes by withholding consent. Please contact us at [email protected] if you would like to make such a request.
Do Not Track and Cross-Site Tracking
Do Not Track is a privacy preference that users can set in their web browsers. When a user turns on the Do Not Track signal, the browser sends a message to websites requesting them not to track the user. For information about Do Not Track, visit www.allaboutdnt.org. At this time, we do not respond to Do Not Track browser settings or signals. In addition, some of our advertising partners, and other third-party services and tools on our Site and/or the Fyntex Service, may use standard technologies, such as cookies, pixel tags, and web beacons, to collect information about your internet activities across websites. You may be able to disable certain third-party cross-site tracking as described in the "Your Choices" section above.
Notices may be by email to the last email address you provided us, by posting notice of such change on our Site or the Fyntex Service, or by other communication channels. You consent to receiving notices in these ways. We reserve the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to you, consistent with applicable law.
