We may use your personal information for research and development and analytical purposes, which may include generating and analyzing statistics about your use of the Platform for performance improvements, research, testing, developing new features, functionality, providing services, and other business purposes.

You can learn more about your choices for limiting interest-based advertising in the “Your Choices” section below.
We may use your personal information to send you Axiom Connected-related marketing information, service recommendations and other non-transactional communications about us and our affiliates and partners, including information about our Platform, promotions or events. You may opt-out of our marketing communications as described in the “Your Choices” section below.
We may use your personal information as we believe necessary or appropriate to comply with applicable laws, lawful requests, and legal process, such as to respond to subpoenas or requests from government authorities.
In some cases we may specifically ask you for your consent to collect, use, or share your personal information, such as when required by law.
We retain your personal information and information stored and collected through our Platform for as long as we have a business or tax need, to satisfy any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements, to establish and defend legal claims, for fraud prevention purposes, or as applicable laws, regulations, or government orders require.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
We take your privacy seriously. Therefore, we use reasonable efforts to take several security measures to help keep your personal information safe, including procedural and technological measures. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches and no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is fully secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of the information that we collect.
In this section, we describe the rights and choices available to all users.
If you have created an account, you can access, review, correct, edit, or remove your account personal information and related content by logging into the Platform and visiting your account profile page. Please note, deactivating your account may not permanently delete, erase or remove your personal information, and such personal information may still be stored by us unless you also contact us regarding your request to remove, delete or erase such information.
You may also send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to us at 8651 Hwy N Suite 201, Lake Saint Louis, MO 63367, to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. Please include your name and any other identifiable information necessary, so that we may locate your information.
Under certain privacy laws you may have a right to access your personal information that we hold about you, however, your rights to access your personal information are not absolute. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical. In addition, we may not accommodate a request to access or change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
If we deny your request for access to, or refuse a request to correct personal information, we shall explain why. For your information, removal of your personal information may impact our ability to provide you or your ability to use our Platform.
If we have sent you a promotional e-mail, you may unsubscribe via the method provided in the email communication or you may send us a return e-mail asking to be omitted from future e-mail distributions.
You can limit the use of your information for interest-based advertising by blocking third-party cookies in your browser settings, using browser plug-ins/extensions, and/or using your mobile device settings to limit the use of the advertising ID associated with your mobile device.

The opt-out preferences described here must be set on each device and/or browser for which you want them to apply. Please note that we also may work with companies that offer their own opt-out mechanisms or do not participate in the opt-out mechanisms described above, so even after opting-out, you may still receive some cookies and interest-based ads from other companies.
