HeadLight Technologies (“HeadLight,” “us,” “our,” and “we”) is committed to protecting the privacy of individuals who visit, use, and actively enter information into the website located at www.headlight.com (the “Site”) operated by HeadLight (collectively, “Users”). Users may at times be referred to in this Privacy Policy as “you.” This Privacy Policy describes HeadLight’s information practices in relation to your use of the Site. This Privacy Policy also applies to information collected by HeadLight through offline contacts it may have with you. If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, please contact HeadLight at info@headlight.com or via the information listed under the “Contacting Us” section below.

PLEASE READ this Privacy Policy carefully before you browse and use the Site. Your usage of the Site signifies to us that you have read and understood all of the terms of this Privacy Policy. You may also be presented with additional opportunities to review this Privacy Policy when taking certain actions on the Site. 

This Privacy Policy explains:

  • What Personal Information we collect about you when you use the Site, why we collect it, who we disclose it to and how long we keep it for;
  • How we use your Personal Information;

Automatically-Collected Information

HeadLight uses certain digital analytics tools on the Site that help us analyze site usage and performance when you visit and use the Site. The tools we use are discussed in more detail below. The information we collect typically does not include any individuals’ names or contact information. Rather, as you navigate and browse the Site, these analytics tools automatically collect and store information about your visit to and use of the Site, such as: the date and time of your visit, the duration of your visit, the type of browser and browser language you use, your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, mobile device ID, type of computer or other operating device used, the actions you take on the Site (such as the web pages viewed and the links clicked), the websites (if any) from which you linked to the Site, and the website(s) you visit after visiting the Site. All such information is referred to in this Privacy Policy as “Automatically-Collected Information,” and may be considered Personal Information depending on applicable privacy laws. 

This Automatically Collected Information allows us to better understand the visitors to the Site, where they come from, and what ‎content on the Site is of interest to them. It also helps us to maintain the security and operation of the Site. We only ever use this Automatically Collected Information for our internal analytics purposes, to diagnose problems or vulnerabilities with our servers, and to improve the quality, performance, and functionality of the Site‎. 

How We Use Voluntarily Provided Personal Information

As described above, you may voluntarily provide Personal Information to us in several ways. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PROVIDE US WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO BROWSE THE SITE, AND YOU ARE NEVER UNDER ANY OBLIGATION TO PROVIDE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. However, if you do not provide your Personal Information, you may not be able to use certain features of the Site to interact with us. When you do provide us with your Personal Information, you are authorizing us to use that information to fulfill the purposes identified herein in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy and to store your information on our servers located in the United States. You understand that your Personal Information may be subject to the laws of the United States, and that it may be accessible to governments, tribunals, law enforcement and regulatory agencies in the United States.  

  • Use of Personal Information to Perform Services Requested and to Contact You

Your Personal Information may also be aggregated and used by HeadLight for market research, project planning, troubleshooting problems, detecting and protecting against error, fraud or other criminal activity, to enforce HeadLight’s Terms of Use, for other internal purposes, and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection. Where required by applicable law, HeadLight will obtain your consent for any use of your Personal Information beyond the original uses for which it was collected. If you apply for a job, we will use the information provided to consider you for the position and to contact you regarding your application.

  • Use of Personal Information and Automatically-Collected Information Generally

We may use both Personal Information and Automatically-Collected Information to help diagnose problems with the Site, to analyze site performance and security, and to improve our service offerings. We may also use your Personal Information and Automatically-Collected Information to customize and tailor your experience using the Site when you are logged-in to your account.

We will only use this Personal Information to consider your application(s) and as part of your personnel file if you are hired. HeadLight does not sell this Personal Information, and does not allow third parties to use this Personal Information for their direct marketing purposes. 

Collection and Use of Automatically-Collected Information

As described above, HeadLight uses commonly-used information-gathering tools to collect Automatically-Collected Information as you navigate the Site, including cookies. HeadLight uses Automatically-Collected Information to operate and improve the Site, including to track what Users are looking at most frequently so we can recognize and deliver more of the desired features, products, and services. This section describes in further detail the types of Automatically-Collected Information HeadLight may collect and how HeadLight may use this Automatically-Collected Information.

  • Cookies

The Site uses temporary session “cookies” to facilitate your interactions with the Site and maintain Site security. When you visit the Site, a temporary cookie is assigned to your computer or operating device; this is a unique, random number that acts as a sort of anonymous ID during your browsing session. Standing alone, these cookies do not personally identify you. Rather, the cookie identifies the computer or operating device used to access the Site. The cookie does not read data on your hard drive. Unless you choose to identify yourself to us, such as by logging into one of our services or filling out a web form, you remain anonymous to HeadLight when browsing the Site. 

Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can disable the acceptance of cookies at any time by changing the preferences in your browser. Most browsers also allow you to change the settings to require that the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie. Please refer to your browser for information on how to disable and control cookies. Information about managing cookies in commonly used browsers is available online from www.allaboutcookies.org. If you disable your web browser’s ability to accept cookies, you will be able to browse the Site, but you may not be able to successfully use certain features of the Site. 

  • Third Party Cookies and Site Analytics

We use third party services including Google analytics to analyze Site activity. When you visit the Site, Google Analytics automatically collects ‎information from you through the use of Google’s analytics IDs, and Google provides some of this information to us. An analytics ID is a specific string of numbers and letters (often called a “character string”) that is assigned to your computer or device but does not name you. The analytics ID allows Google to track usage data of the Site, such as date and time of visit, duration of visit, Site traffic patterns, “clickstreams,” other similar ‎information about your use of the Site, ‎the type of web browser used, the operating ‎system/platform you are using, your IP address, the ‎websites that referred or linked you to our ‎Site, and your CPU speed.‎ Google Analytics does not share the analytics ID assigned to your computer or device that you use to access and use the Site. Rather, Google Analytics provides information about the use of our Site to us in aggregate form (i.e., data about many Users combined and not just about you). Some of this data might include the regional location of Users, but again, this data will be in aggregate (and not individual) form. We rely on this aggregate data to inform us how Users are using the ‎Site and to help us improve the Site. 

  • Social Media Widget Cookies

As described below, some pages of the Site include social media features. These ‎features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on the Site, ‎and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and ‎widgets are either hosted by a third-party or hosted directly on the Site. See the Social Media section under the heading How We Share the Personal Information We Collect, below, for more details about your interactions with these features on our Site.

How We Share the Personal Information We Collect

HeadLight may share your Personal Information in the manners described in this section. In addition, HeadLight may also share without restriction aggregated Automatically-Collected Information that has been de-identified or otherwise rendered anonymous to the point that it is not linked or reasonably linkable to any individual, including via a specific device.

  • Third-Party Service Providers

HeadLight may provide your Personal Information and Automatically Collected Information to third party service providers to facilitate or outsource one or more aspects of the HeadLight Technologies Services, business, or operations (e.g., technology, newsletters/alerts, analytic tools, advertising management. These third party service providers are subject to confidentiality agreements with HeadLight and other legal restrictions that prohibit their use of the information HeadLight provides to them for any other purpose except for the purpose of providing a service on our behalf, unless you have explicitly agreed or given your prior permission to them for additional uses. In some instances, the third party service provider may collect information directly from you. In these cases, you will be notified of the involvement of the third party service provider, and all additional information you provide them and their additional uses will be strictly up to you. If you provide additional information to a third party service provider directly, then their use of your Personal Information is governed by such third party service provider’s privacy policy. 

  • Merger, Acquisition, or Sale

We may transfer any and all Personal Information and Automatically-Collected Information to a third party if HeadLight is involved in a merger, acquisition, reorganization, restructuring, or other sale or transfer of all or any portion of its assets or business, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceedings in which information of Users is among the assets transferred. In this event, we will, if allowed, use reasonable efforts to notify you when your Personal Information and Automatically-Collected Information is transferred to any third party under this paragraph by posting such notice on the Site and/or by contacting you via the Personal Information you have provided us, if any. Unless you consent otherwise, we will require the third party to agree to only use your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, even after the transfer. But any new information you provide after the transfer will likely be subject to a new policy, and you should review that policy.

  • Required by Law

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Privacy Policy, HeadLight reserves the right to disclose your Personal Information and Automatically-Collected Information, without your consent and without additional notice to you, if we reasonably believe we are required by law, rule, regulation, judicial proceeding, court order, subpoena, or similar legal process to do so; if we reasonably believe that disclosure is necessary to protect, establish, or exercise our rights or property, or to defend against legal claims; or if we reasonably believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our other Users or our employees, property, or business, or to take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud.

  • Social Media

Certain pages of the Site might include social media features, widgets, or other interactive mini-programs that run on the Site‎. These features might require us to implement cookies, plug-ins, or application programming interfaces (APIs) provided by such social media platforms to facilitate the communications and features. When you provide us with information through these platforms, the information also becomes subject to their privacy policies and practices. In addition, by choosing to use any third party social media platform or choosing to share content or communications with any social media platform, you allow us to share information with the designated social media platform. We cannot control any policies or terms of such third party platforms. As a result, we cannot be responsible for any use of your information or content by a third party platform, which you disclose at your own risk. We encourage you to review the privacy statements of these platforms.

  • De-identified and Aggregate Automatically Collected Information

We may share anonymized, de-identified, and/or aggregated Automatically Collected Information in a non-personally identifiable manner to ‎third parties for development, marketing, promotional or other purposes. We do not disclose to ‎these entities any information that could be used to identify you personally without your ‎knowledge and consent.

If you ask us, where possible and lawful to do so, we will also tell you with whom we shared your Personal Information so that you can contact them directly. If you wish to exercise any data protection rights that may be available to you under your local ‎data protection laws then please send ‎your request to info@headlight.com or otherwise contact us via the information provided in the “Contacting Us” section below and we will act upon your request in accordance ‎with applicable data protection laws.‎

  • Your California Privacy Rights

Please note, as described above in this Privacy Policy, HeadLight does not sell Personal Information, nor does it disclose Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. 

Notwithstanding the above, if you are a California resident, you have the right to request information from us regarding the ‎manner in which we share certain categories of your Personal Information with third-parties. ‎Specifically, California law provides you the right to submit a request to us at the designated address in the “Contacting Us” section below to ‎receive the following information:‎

  • the categories of information we disclosed to third-parties for the third-parties’ direct ‎marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year;‎
  • the names and addresses of third-parties that received such information; and
  • if the nature of a third-parties’ business cannot be reasonably determined from the third-‎parties’ name, examples of the products or services marketed.‎

You are entitled to receive a copy of this information in a standardized format and the ‎information will not be specific to you individually. 

Children’s Privacy

The Site is not directed at nor intended for use by children under the age of 13. Further, HeadLight will never use or disclose any Personal Information of a child under the age of 18 for marketing or advertising purposes. If you are under age 18 you should not provide HeadLight with Personal Information about yourself if you use the Site. If we learn that we have received Personal Information or Automatically-Collected Information from a child under the age of 18 we will delete that information from our files.

Security of Collected Information

HeadLight uses commercially-reasonable physical, electronic, and administrative security measures to assist in protecting against the loss, misuse, and unauthorized alteration of Personal Information that is under our control. HeadLight Technologies will notify you in the event it becomes aware of an unauthorized use or compromise of your personally identifiable information and will take reasonable measures to limit further unauthorized use or compromise. Unfortunately, no data storage system, or system of transmitting data over the Internet or wireless network, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and no security system can prevent all security breaches. As a result, we do not and cannot guarantee the security of our systems or any Personal Information or Automatically-Collected Information provided to us in relation to your use of the Site or when you interact with us. 

Do Not Track

The Site does not track visitors over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites you visit may track your browsing activities, which could enable them to obtain information about the fact that a web browser visited the Site from a certain IP address. If you are visiting such sites, your web browser may allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties know you do not want to be tracked. ‎

Retention, Storage and Removal

We may retain all Personal Information and Automatically-Collected Information in our databases for as long as necessary to perform the business purposes for which we’ve collected it, or until you ask us to remove your information from our databases, unless applicable laws require otherwise. When we have no ongoing business need to process your Personal Information, we will ‎either delete or aggregate it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible. Note that even after you ask us to remove your information from our databases, it may be impossible to remove some information, such as information tracked in our web server log files and information that may reside in backup files. This residual information is retained to preserve the integrity of our backed-up files and for business continuity purposes. We may also retain Automatically-Collected Information even after you request that we remove your information from our databases, for use in the aggregate and to analyze and improve the Site. 

Further, even after you request that we remove your information from our databases, we may retain Personal Information and Automatically-Collected Information to comply with any applicable law, rule, regulation, or guideline; to prevent fraudulent activity; to protect ourselves against liability; and to allow us to enforce our contractual or other rights and to pursue available remedies and limit any damages we may sustain.

Links to Other Websites

This Privacy Policy applies only to Personal Information and Automatically-Collected Information collected through the Site or that you otherwise provide to HeadLight. The Site may contain links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by us (“Linked Sites”). We are not responsible or liable for and have not reviewed the privacy practices of the Linked Sites, or those of the owners or operators of the Linked Sites. The owners and operators of the Linked Sites may have their own policies regarding privacy and security. We advise you to review any Linked Sites for their own privacy practices to determine what information about you may be collected and used when you use such Linked Sites.
