Your Personal Information and How We Use It
We respect the privacy of all our online guests. Our Sites, Apps and underlying infrastructure recognize and record certain information about visitors and users. The nature of the information collected may include the type of browser used, the type of operating system of your computer or other Internet access device, the domain name or Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of the visitor’s / user’s Internet service provider, the Site/App pages visited by users, the actions taken on said pages, and the character and duration of Site/App usage. In addition, our Apps will recognize and record all data that you input into it.
In the instance where users provide additional Personal Information during their use of the Site or App (for example by logging in), this Personal Information may be stored alongside the aforementioned information and all subsequently collected information. This information (both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable) may be used for the purposes of improving our Sites and Apps, improving our business, troubleshooting issues, supporting our customers/users and any other use that we deem necessary for the effective delivery of services to our end-users and our customers. The collection of information for these purposes may be facilitated by our Apps and Sites directly or by using external third-party services including, but not limited to: Google Universal Analytics, Mixpanel Analytics, Session Recording Tools, etc.
Non-Personal Information gathered by our Sites during regular browsing (i.e. not signed in) may be used to help analyse Site traffic and improve our services. We may also aggregate such information to create statistical data and we may share that information (or its non-aggregated form) with potential advertisers, partners, affiliates and other third parties. At no point, however, do we access any personally identifiable facts in this process. We do not collect personally identifiable information from visitors to our Sites or users of our Apps unless it is provided to us voluntarily and knowingly.
How We Safeguard your Personal Information
T&G has and will endeavour to maintain the appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect Personal Information against accidental or unlawful damage or destruction, accidental loss, theft, alteration, unauthorised disclosure, access or use.

Personal Information may only be accessed by T&G employees, contractors and agents on a need-to-know basis, for the purpose(s) for which the Personal Information has been collected and only in support of legitimate business purposes.
Please be advised, however, that while we strive to do everything reasonably possible to protect your Personal Information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your Personal Information where our security measures have been breached. Consider this when making your Personal information available to us.
Who We Might Share Personal Information With
We will not sell your Personal Information and the operation of our business does not rely on such action. Your Personal Information may be transferred to other companies within T&G’s group of companies, or other third-parties that help us deliver our services to you. These companies might be located in other countries and may be subject to different laws.

- For legal purposes; We may transfer your Personal Information to Government authorities as required or allowed to by applicable law.

Your Rights Under the CCPA
Each California Consumer has rights to know about, obtain copies of and delete their personal information. The following describes those rights.
Your Right to Know About Your Personal Information
You have the right to request that we disclose to you the following information covering the 12 months prior to your request (“Requests to Know”):
- The categories of Personal Information that we collected about you;
- The categories of sources from which we collected your Personal Information;
- The categories of Personal Information that we have sold or disclosed for a business purpose;
- Our business or commercial purposes for collecting or selling your Personal Information;
- The categories of third parties to which we disclosed or sold your Personal Information for a business purpose. As noted above, we do not sell your Personal Information; and
- The specific pieces of Personal Information that we have collected about you (you have the right to copies of those specific pieces of Personal Information).
Your Right to the Deletion of Your Personal Information
You also may request that we delete (and direct our service providers to delete) the Personal Information that we have collected about you (“Requests to Delete”). In some cases, however, the CCPA provides for exceptions to this right to have your Personal Information deleted, such as if the Personal Information is need to provide a service you requested or if the information is needed for us to comply with a legal obligation. If we deny your Request to Delete your Personal Information, we will tell you the reason or reasons for that denial.
How to Submit Requests to Know or Requests to Delete
You may make Requests to Know or Requests to Delete by any of these methods:
- Emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Fill out the Contact Us form here: https://envyapple.com/us/contact/
For individuals submitting a Request to Know or Request to Delete on behalf of another person, we may require proof of authorization and verification of identity directly fro the person for whom the request is made. For a company or organization submitting a request on behalf of another person, we may require proof of authorization, such as a power of attorney and verification of identity, directly from the person for whom the request is made.
If you submit a request in a manner that is not one of the designated methods of submission, we will either treat your request as if it had been submitted in accordance with these designated methods or provide you with specific directions on how to submit the request or remedy the deficiencies in your request, if any.
How We Verify and Process Your Information Right Requests
Upon receiving your Request to Know or Request to Delete, we will confirm receipt of your request within 10 days and provide information about how we will process your requests.
We will respond to your request within 45 days barring any unforeseen complications. If we are unable to verify your identity or if other complications arise, we may take up to 90 days to process your request or may in some cases deny your request, but we will in such cases notify you and provide an explanation.
To process your request, we will ask you for information that allows us to verify your identity and we will use that information only for that purpose. The information we request and the degree of verification you will need to provide will depend on the scope of your request. Requests for copies of specific pieces of your Personal Information may require additional information to verify your identity as compared to general Requests to Know. The information that we will need to verify your identity for Requests to Delete will depend on the nature of your request. For example, we may require a reasonably high degree of certainty for verification of a request to delete documents; by contrast, we may require only a reasonable degree of certainty for a request to delete browsing history.
In some instances, we may not be able to honor your request. For example, we will not honor your request if we cannot verify you identity or cannot verify that a person claiming to be your agent has the authority to make the request on your behalf.
If there is no reasonable method by which we can verify your identity to the degrees of certainty as described above, we will state so in response to your request and explain why we have no reasonable method by which we can verify your identity. We generally will avoid requesting additional information from you for purposes of verification. If we do request additional information from you, it shall only be used for the purposes of (1) verifying your identity while you are seeking to exercise your rights under the CCPA; and (2) for security or fraud-prevention purposes. We will delete any new personal information collected for the purposes of verification as soon as practical after processing your request, except as otherwise required by law.
In addition, we will not honor your request where an exception under the California law applies, such as where the disclosure of Personal Information would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of another California consumer or where the Personal Information we have about you is not subject to the CCPA’s access or deletion rights. We also will advise you in our response if we are not able to honor your request for these reasons.
Your Right to Be Free From Discrimination
You have the right to be free from discrimination for exercising your rights under the CCPA.
California “Shine the Light” Disclosures
