Information and Security
By using or accessing the Website, you agree to this Notice and consent to the processing of information about you as described below.
COLLECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION
When you use the Website, you may choose to provide Spark No. 9 with certain personally identifiable information about yourself (PII). PII may include your name, address, email address, or phone number, or IP address. We collect only PII you voluntarily provide to us.
We may collect other information when you use the Website that does not include PII, such as pages viewed, statistics, browser type, traffic to and from the Website, standard web log information, and other similar data. We may aggregate this information (Aggregate Information) in a manner that does not identify you or any individual.
HOW WE USE AND SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
Generally, we use the PII we collect on our Website in one or more of the following ways: (a) to administer our Site, (b) for marketing, (c) for recruiting and/or (d) in relation to client service purposes. We may also use or disclose your PII in accordance with your consent, when required by law to do so, or if it is necessary for a corporate transaction (such as a merger or acquisition). Other than as described in this Notice, we do not sell, distribute, lease or transfer the PII we collect. For more details, including how and when we destroy PII and about your individual rights, see “Your Individual Rights.”
We may share the PII we collect as described in this section of the Notice. We may share PII for the following reasons:
With employees, contractors and agents that provide services to us: We may share the PII we collect with our employees, contractors and agents, including third-party service providers, that perform services and functions at our direction and on our behalf, but their use of such information shall be limited to the performance of their duties and is consistent with our purposes for using such information.

We may use Aggregate Information (i) to improve and enhance your experience on the Website, (ii) to customize, measure, and further develop the Website, our services or both, (iii) in connection with research activities and (iv) to tell you about our services or service updates. For example, we may share Aggregate Information with unaffiliated third parties, such as our business partners, in an anonymous form that does allow the third party to associate the information we shared as your PII.
We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect that are compliant with applicable law. The information we collect is stored on our servers located in the United States. We take reasonable steps and regularly assess our privacy and security policies and procedures and comply with laws designed to protect the privacy and security of your PII.
