TULA expressly disclaims any liability arising in connection with the sharing of your information with Third Party Agents for the purposes of providing the TULA Platform. You hereby agree to hold TULA harmless from any liability that may result from the Third Party Agents’ use of your information.
Promotions. When you voluntarily enter a sweepstakes, contest, or other promotion, we share information as set out in the official rules that govern the promotion as well as for administrative purposes and as required by law (e.g., on a winners’ list). By entering a promotion, you agree to the official rules that govern that promotion, and may, except where prohibited by applicable law, allow the sponsor and/or other entities to use your name, voice, and/or likeness in advertising or marketing materials. We may occasionally contact you, if you want us to, with information about special events, activities, promotions, contests, submission opportunities, and programs. You always have the ability, in your Account, to ask TULA not to contact you with
this type of information.
Legal Obligations. TULA and our Third Party Agents may disclose information or User Generated Content, including location data or communication data, to a third party if required or permitted to do so by law or pursuant to a court order, warrant or subpoena. TULA reserves the right to disclose Personal Information from both private and public areas of the Site(s) and the TULA Platform in the absence of a court order, warrant or subpoena, to the extent permitted by applicable law, if we are given reason to believe, in our sole discretion, that someone is causing injury to or interfering with the rights of Users, the general public, or TULA or its partners, parents or affiliates. It is our policy to provide notice to Users before producing their information in response to law enforcement requests unless (i) we are prohibited or otherwise constrained by law or court order from doing so, (ii) we have reason to believe the User’s account has been compromised such that the notice would go to the wrong person, or notice would otherwise be counterproductive or would create a risk to safety, or (iii) it is an emergency request and prior notice would be
impractical (in which case we may provide notice after the fact).
Merger or Acquisition. TULA reserves the right to share information in connection with, or during negotiations of, any proposed or actual merger, purchase, sale, or any other type of acquisition or business combination of all or any portion of our assets, or transfer of all or a portion of our business to another business.

Do Not Track. Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit.

Accordingly, unless and until the law is interpreted to require us to do so, we do not monitor or take action with respect to
“Do Not Track” signals. For more information on “Do Not Track,” visit https://www.allaboutdnt.com. If you are a California Resident, please see the Additional Disclosures for California Residents section below.

We retain personal data for as long as you are a User in order to meet our contractual obligations to you, and for such longer period as may be in our legitimate interests and to comply with our legal obligations, but in no case longer than six (6) months after you delete your Account. We may also retain data from which you cannot directly be identified, for example where stored against a randomly-generated identifier so we know the data relates to a single User, but we cannot tell who that User is. We use this kind of data for research purposes and to help us develop and improve our services, and we take appropriate measures to ensure you cannot be re-identified from this data. In all cases, all information collected from you shall be deleted six (6) months after you delete your Account on the TULA Platform.
9. TULA’s Security of Collected Information
Your TULA account is password-protected so that only you and authorized TULA staff have access to your account information. In order to maintain this protection, do not give your password to anyone. Also, if you share a computer, you should sign out of your TULA account and close the browser window before someone else logs on. This will help protect your information entered on public terminals from disclosure to third parties. TULA implements and maintains reasonable administrative, physical, and technical security safeguards to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorizedaccess, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Nevertheless, transmission via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of information about you.
