    Our Site Tracking Activities

    Our Site uses cookies and other tracking technologies for a variety of purposes which are further described below.


    Cookies are small text files containing data that can be used to identity your device. When you visit a particular website, for example, a cookie may be filed to a folder within your browser so that when you visit the website in the future, the website will recognize your device and, depending on the type of cookie being used, will perform different activities when you interact with the website. There are four different types of online cookies: essential, analytical, personalization, or marketing.

    Essential Cookies. An essential cookie is a cookie that is needed to operate a website. Without these cookies, a website would not be able to function.

    Personalization Cookies. Personalization cookies are cookies that help a website remember certain choices you have made on the website (such as language preferences or log in information) to personalize your experience with the site.

    Analytical Cookies. Analytical cookies are used to track web traffic and how users interact with a website to allow us to better understand the website’s performance and how to improve a user’s site experience.

    Marketing Cookies. Marketing cookies are used so that a website, and in some cases other third parties, may send advertising, marketing or promotional content to you based on your website and browsing activity.

    A plugin is a small piece of software that adds a specific functionality or content to a website or mobile application. Common types of plugins are used to help websites function, and may help run animation or videos, open PDF files, print documents, and customize website fonts and images, for example.

    Websites may also have one or more ‘social media plugins,’ which allow a user to connect to an organization’s social media page directly from the organization’s website. If the user has a social media account, the user may be able to interact with their social media account on websites the user visits. For example, the social media account user may be able to ‘like’ or ‘share’ content on a website which then may be shared on the social media page. When using social media plugins, certain information about website users may be collected and shared with any Third Parties that provide the applicable social media platform or services.

    On our Site, we use the following social media plugins. You may have options regarding how your personal data and other information is shared with Third Parties that provide social media services through plugins available on the Site, by following the directions noted in the links available through the table below.

    Do Not Track Signals

    Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked.

    Our Site is not currently configured to respond to “do not track” signals. You also may opt-out of certain interest-based advertising by visiting To learn more about other ways to possibly opt-out of certain kinds of tracking that occur when you browse the internet and lead to targeted advertising, visit the Network Advertising Initiative website and the Digital Advertising Alliance website.

    Options you select through these industry-provided opt-out tools are browser- and device-specific, and there is no guarantee that such tools will prevent all targeted advertising. As previously described in this Policy, third parties may collect or receive information through the Site or our other Services. Since it is possible that some of these third parties may respond differently than us to “do not track” requests, you should consult the applicable privacy policies of those third parties for further information.

    How to Submit a Privacy Request

    If you wish to submit a request to access personal data we have collected about you, or to correct or delete such personal data, subject to applicable legal exceptions (“Privacy Request”), we will use reasonable efforts to accommodate your Privacy Request, if we can verify your identity. To verify your identity, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself and, in some cases, we may follow up with you to obtain additional information as necessary to authenticate your request. We will not fulfill your Privacy Request if we are not able to verify your identity.

    Please note that, with respect to deletion requests, we may not be able to ensure or guarantee complete and comprehensive removal of your personal data in all places and for all purposes. Your personal data may have been shared or reposted by other parties who act outside of any business relationship with us, or who may not cooperate with our request for them to delete your personal data. Additionally, we may not be able to fulfill your request due to applicable laws, or our internal policies may require maintenance of your personal data in our records. Please note that if the deletion request relates to personal data that we need to provide Services to you, you may not be able to use those Services properly moving forward.

    International Transfers of Personal Data 

    Black Talon is a company based in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, you are responsible for complying with any applicable laws in your jurisdiction, and any use of the Services is at your own risk. The data protection laws of the United States may offer a different level of privacy protection in comparison to other jurisdictions. Accordingly, if you are outside the United States and provide personal data or other information through the Site or our other Services, you agree that such information may be transferred, accessed, stored, and/or otherwise processed in the United States as explained in this Policy. Black Talon has appropriate safeguards in place to allow for the processing of personal data collected from individuals within the UK or EEA in compliance with applicable data protection laws.

    Data Retention

    We retain personal data as needed to complete the Services or for other legitimate purposes such as ensuring security of our data and systems, complying with our legal obligations, complying with tax and audit requirements or other books and recordkeeping policies, resolving disputes, conducting internal investigations, and enforcing our agreements or other legal rights. Due to the different purposes for retaining your personal data, the actual retention timeframes may vary depending on the type of personal data we collect from you and the purposes for which we use your personal data. If we determine that your personal data is no longer needed for the purposes described in this Policy, such information will be deleted or anonymized so that it can no longer be attributed to you. Our collection times will be consistent with applicable law. Please note that residual copies of your personal data may be removed from backup systems subject to our backup data retention schedule.

    Data Security

    We have implemented technical and organizational measures to address the risk of loss, misuse, alteration, or unauthorized disclosure of personal data under our control.

We require that any third parties with access to your information only process your personal data to provide services to us or on our behalf, and to implement security measures that are reasonably designed to keep your personal data confidential and secure.

    While we have employed security technologies and procedures to assist safeguarding your personal data, no system or network is 100% secure, and we cannot guarantee that the information you send over the internet is fully secure. You should exercise discretion in what information you disclose and/or transmit through our Site. The transmitted information may be intercepted by others before it reaches us. If you are concerned about sending information to Black Talon online, please send the information by mail or call us to make other arrangements. We are not responsible for the security of information transmitted online.
