Information We Collect
Use of Information
Intelus uses your personally identifiable information primarily to provide you with the Service and to provide customized content on the Service that is of interest to you. The information is also used to verify your authority to access the Service and to contact you when reasonably necessary. Intelus may also use any information you have provided as reasonably necessary to administer or provide customer support for the Service, and to provide you with periodic printed or e-mail communications about new products and services, discounts, special promotions or upcoming events. You may opt-out of receiving some or all non-Service related communications by updating your profile on the Service. Also, your full name and email address may be used when you use the Service to send a message to another user. Additionally, we use your email address to contact you on behalf of other friends on the site (such as when another user sends you a message). When you connect the Service to a third party add-on we access and use information received from that add-on to facilitate the connection. Connections through oAuth may request permissions for special access, including without limitation, requests to access the content of your spreadsheets and to allow the applicable application to run when you are not present. We use this access in order to generate predictions for you based on large numbers of cell entries, which can take up to 1 hour or more.
Controlling Your Personal Information
Intelus may make available to users forums, message boards, and other interactive features. You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g. user name, e-mail address) via forums, postings, profiles or other areas of the Service, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in your communication, can be collected, correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Intelus. Please do not post any personal information on the Service or in other areas that you expect to keep private.
Because any personally identifiable information you submit to Intelus is purely voluntary and should not be of a particularly sensitive nature, we employ our standard security measures with respect to this information and do not use special encryption methods at this time. Intelus user accounts are secured by user-created passwords. Please note that Intelus cannot guarantee the security of user account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time.
Collection of Information From Children
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information relating to children. In the event that we learn that we have collected personally identifiable information from anyone under 13 years of age without prior parental consent, we will take steps to promptly delete such information. By providing your personal information to Intelus, through the Service, you represent that you are 18 years of age or older.
International Visitors and Customers
The Service is hosted in the United States. If you are visiting from the European Union (EU) or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States which does not have the same data protection laws as the EU and by providing your personal data you consent to:
- The transfer of your personal data to the United States as indicated above.
No Error-Free Performance

Additional Disclosures for Nevada Residents.
Nevada law (NRS 603A.340) requires each business to establish a designated request address where Nevada consumers may submit requests directing the business not to sell certain kinds of personal information that the business has collected or will collect about the consumer. A sale under Nevada law is the exchange of personal information for monetary consideration by the business to a third party for the third party to license or sell the personal information to other third parties. If you are a Nevada consumer and wish to submit a request relating to our compliance with Nevada law, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional Disclosures for Data Subjects in Europe.
Data protection laws in Europe distinguish between organizations that process personal data for their own purposes (known as “controllers”) and organizations that process personal data on behalf of other organizations (known as “processors”). Intelus acts as a controller with respect to personal data collected as you interact with our websites, emails, and advertisements.
b. Lawful Basis for Processing.

- we need your personal data to provide you with services and products;
- requested by you, or to respond to your inquiries;
- we have a legal obligation to process your personal data; or
- we or a third party, have a legitimate interest in using your personal data and your interests and fundamental rights and freedoms do not override those interests.

- Withdraw any consent you previously provided to us regarding the processing of your personal data, at any time and free of charge. We will apply your preferences going forward and this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before your consent withdrawal.
