10. Data Security
We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information and to honoring your choices for its intended use. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we strive to maintain physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards. However, We make no warranty, guarantee, or representation that the use of our website is protected from viruses, security threats, or other vulnerabilities and that your information will always be secure.
While we have implemented commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. You acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk.
10.1 Keeping information safe
YeeGoals understands that the information collected and shared with us by our customers, investors and business partners contains sensitive data. We take our role in safeguarding information about you seriously.
We maintain a security program that draws on industry standards and best practices. We take a defensive, in-depth approach to implementing physical, administrative, and technical safeguards to protect information against unauthorized access or misuse.
The safeguards include preventive, detective, and corrective controls, for example: physical safeguards like access badges and a video monitoring system; administrative safeguards like an employee security training program, employment background checks, and access controls; and technical safeguards like perimeter security, encryption, two-factor authentication, and regular security monitoring with layered and complementary controls.
In addition, we use:
Encryption website certificates. Encryption protects the information you share with us from the moment it leaves your computer until it reaches our systems. Look for the secure locked padlock on your browser, which signifies a secure web connection. Consult your web browser documentation for more information.
Session time-outs. We employ session time-outs that will log you out of the website automatically after a period of inactivity. This reduces the risk of others being able to access your account if you leave your computer unattended.
Passwords. You should never share your password with anyone. Your password is not known to any YeeGoals employee or third party, and we will never ask for your password by phone or email. If you ever receive a communication claiming to be from YeeGoals that asks for your password, you should immediately report it by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Identity theft protection. In order to protect your identity at YeeGoals, we have developed and implemented an identity theft prevention and response program that is designed to detect, prevent, and mitigate identity theft when borrowing or investing through the YeeGoals platform. We utilize authentication technology to verify the identities of our customers, and have established processes, procedures, and training for YeeGoals employees to identify and respond appropriately to identity theft indicators.
We also periodically review and adjust security safeguards as the threat landscape evolves.
Ultimately no security system is impenetrable, and we cannot guarantee the security of our systems 100%.
In the event that any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, our policy is to take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and, where appropriate, communicate with affected individuals.

14. Your California Privacy Rights
In California, you may opt in to have personal information about you shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Consistent with California Civil Code Section 1798.83, if you no longer wish to have personal information about you shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes, please email us at privacy@YeeGoals.com to request to not have your information shared in this manner.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provides for additional rights for California consumers. Your rights under the CCPA include: a) the right to request that a business that collects a consumer's personal information disclose to that consumer the categories and specific pieces of personal information the business has collected; b) the right to request that a business delete certain personal information about the consumer which the business has collected from the consumer; c) the right to request that a business that collects personal information about the consumer disclose to the consumer the categories of personal information it has collected about that consumer, the categories of sources from which the personal information is collected, the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information, the categories of third parties with whom the business shares personal information, and the specific pieces of personal information it has collected about that consumer; d) the right to request that a business that sells the consumer's personal information, or that discloses it for a business purpose, disclose to that consumer the categories of personal information that the business sold or disclosed; and e) the right to opt-out of the sale of personal information.
These rights do not apply to personal information collected, processed, sold, or disclosed pursuant to the federal Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), including certain information relating to financial services we offer such as information about financial accounts, credit information, or information collected as part of the application process. Most of the information we collect is subject to the GLBA ("GLBA Information") and therefore not subject to the CCPA and the rights described above.
However, GLBA Information may be subject to a different California law called the California Financial Information Privacy Act. Your privacy choices under this law are set forth in the form called "Important Privacy Choices for Consumers(This need an hyperlink to a form that is already done)."
To the extent your information is subject to the CCPA, you may exercise your rights under the CCPA by submitting the form at https://www.YeeGoals.com/californiaprivacy. You will be asked to provide certain identifying information to verify your consumer request, such as your name, social security number, date of birth, email address, and your mailing address. You will be required to verify your email address. You may also send an email to californiaprivacy@YeeGoals.com for more information.
YeeGoals does not sell your personal information as described in the CCPA.
YeeGoals does not sell personal information of minors as described in the CCPA.
You have a right not to receive discriminatory treatment by the business for the exercise of the privacy rights conferred by the CCPA. Also, you may designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on your behalf.
