Cookies and Similar Technologies

We use “cookies”, scripts, web beacons, and/or other similar technology to collect, directly or indirectly, Information about you, which are commonly used on the Internet. Cookies help us:

  • Track, manage and optimize your interactions with us;

  • Monitor the performance of the Site and Extension in order to evaluate their effectiveness and continually improve them; and

  • Customize and enhance your online experience, including by offering Third Party Content relevant to your interests.

Your browser may offer a “Do Not Track” (DNT) feature that can signal to operators of websites and web services (such as behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish for them to track your online activities over time and/or across various sites. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, our Extension does not currently respond to browser DNT signals. We will continue to work with the online industry to define a common understanding of how to treat DNT signals.

You can refuse cookies via your browser settings or manually clear cookies within your browser. For instructions, click here for Firefox; here for Chrome; here for Safari; and here for Internet Explorer.

How Long Do We Keep Your Information? We only keep your personal data as long as it is necessary for the purposes set forth in this Privacy Policy, or as required by applicable law.

How Do We Protect Your Information?

We have implemented technical, administrative and physical security measures to protect Information from unauthorized access and improper use. We keep information on servers that are protected by firewalls and located in a physically secure facility accessible only to our authorized employees and personnel of the Related Companies. From time to time, we review our security procedures in order to consider appropriate new technologies and methods. Please be aware though, that, despite our reasonable efforts, no security measures are impenetrable, and any information transmitted to us or through the Site and/or Extension will be at your own risk.

You may uninstall the Extension by going here and following the directions to remove the Extension from your computer.

What Are My Data Rights As A California Resident? Users who are California residents (“California Users”) have certain rights with regard to Information classified as “personal information” according to applicable data privacy laws in California. Keep in mind that we may reject requests, for example, where your request is unlawful or adversely affects the rights of another person. You have the right to request that we:

  1. Delete your personal information;

  2. Provide access to categories of personal information which we have collected about you;

  3. Provide access to specific pieces of personal information which we have collected about you; and

You also have the right to be free from discrimination as a result of exercising these rights.

If you wish to submit such a request, please click here. We will need to verify your identity before responding to your requests.

California Users may also opt out of ChromeTools by clicking here. Please note that because we manage your preferences through the use of cookies, if you delete your cookies or use a new device, you will have to opt back out again. Instead, you may wish to uninstall the Extension, which will provide the same effect of an opt-out. As described above, you may uninstall the Extension by following the directions provided here.

If you are a California resident, you may designate an authorized agent to make a request to access or a request to delete on your behalf. We will respond to your authorized agent's request if they submit proof that they are registered with the California Secretary of State to be able to act on your behalf, or submit evidence you have provided them with power of attorney pursuant to California Probate Code section 4000 to 4465. We may deny requests from authorized agents who do not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on their behalf, or are unable to verify their identity within two (2) business days of submitting a request. In addition, for security purposes, you and/or your authorized agent will only be able to submit requests via the proper browser and device on which your Extension is installed.

California “Shine the Light” Rights In addition, California Civil Code Section 1798 entitles California Users to request information concerning whether a business has disclosed personal information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. We will not sell or share your personal information with non-affiliated companies for their direct marketing purposes without your consent. California Users who wish to request further information about our compliance with this law or have questions or concerns about our privacy practices and policies may contact us by email at .
