Gene Beyt LLC Privacy Policy was updated on May 1, 2019. Your privacy is important to Gene Beyt LLC so we’ve developed this PRIVACY POLICY that covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your personal information. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices and contact us if you have any questions.

Collection and Use of Personal Information: Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person. You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with Gene Beyt LLC. Gene Beyt LLC may share this personal information with others and use it consistent with this privacy policy. Gene Beyt LLC may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our products, services, content, and advertising. You are not required to provide the personal information that we have requested, but, if you chose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with our products or services or respond to any queries you may have.

Here are some examples of the types of personal information Gene Beyt LLC may collect and how we may use it:

What personal information we collect - When you request information, sign up for a newsletter, download files, or register for an event at GeneBeyt.com, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, organization, position, subject, contact preferences, device identifiers, IP address, location information, information about your request, and comments concerning your request. Gene Beyt LLC will use such information to fulfill your requests, provide the relevant product or service, or for anti-fraud purposes.

How we use your personal information - We may process your personal information for the purposes described in this privacy policy with your consent, for compliance with a legal obligation to which Gene Beyt LLC is subject or when we have assessed it is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by Gene Beyt LLC or a third party to whom it may be necessary to disclose information. The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on Gene Beyt LLC’s latest announcements, updates, and upcoming events. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by updating your preferences.

We also use personal information to help us create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our products, services, content and marketing, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes. We may also use your personal information for account and network security purposes, including in order to protect our services for the benefit of all our stakeholders. Where we use your information for anti-fraud purposes it arises from the conduct of an online transaction with us. We limit our uses of data for anti-fraud purposes to those which are strictly necessary and within our assessed legitimate interests to protect our stakeholders and our services. For certain online transactions we may also validate the information provided by you with publicly accessible sources.

From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Gene Beyt LLC, you may not opt out of receiving these communications. We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Gene Beyt LLC’s products, services, and stakeholder communications.

Other sources of your personal information - We may have received your personal information from other persons using Gene Beyt LLC services and/or website. We may also validate the information provided by you when using Gene Beyt LLC services and /or website with a third party for security and fraud prevention purposes. For research and development purposes, we may use datasets such as those that contain images, voices or other data that could be associated with an identifiable person. When acquiring such datasets, we do so in accordance with applicable law in the jurisdiction in which the dataset is hosted. When using such datasets for research and development, we do not attempt to re-identify individuals who may appear therein.

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information: We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:

We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, location, and the time zone where an Gene Beyt LLC service is used so that we can better understand stakeholder behavior and improve our products, services, and marketing.

We may collect information regarding user activities on our website and from our other products and services. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our stakeholders and to understand which parts of our website, products, and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non‑personal information for the purposes of this privacy policy.

We may collect and store details of how you use our services, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by our services. Except in limited instances to ensure quality of our services over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.

With your explicit consent, we may collect data about how you use our products and services in order to help our developers improve their applications. If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.

Cookies and Other Technologies: Gene Beyt LLC’s websites, online services, interactive applications, email messages, and advertisements may use "cookies" and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of our websites people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of marketing and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non‑personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this privacy policy. Information that is delivered by Gene Beyt LLC’s marketing platform may appear in Gene Beyt LLC newsletters or emails.

We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, to improve our product and services, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Gene Beyt LLC may use this information in our marketing and advertising services. In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on Gene Beyt LLC website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our stakeholder communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages. Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format stakeholders can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.

We may decline to process requests that are frivolous/vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. We may also decline aspects of deletion or access requests if we believe doing so would undermine our legitimate use of data for anti-fraud and security purposes as described earlier. For access, a request may be made directly to GeneBeyt.com.
