To Whom May We Disclose Your Information?
Your privacy is important to us and we are committed to protecting your information that identifies you personally. We share your personal information in the following circumstances:
With your consent. When you consent or direct Crux to share your personal information, for example, when you give us permission to allow our business partners to contact you with products, services, and opportunities which may be useful to you.
Service providers. Crux uses third-party service providers for business purposes, including to help operate the Services or our business. For example, we may use third parties to perform data storage and processing services for us, to help us with billing and to process payments, and to help us communicate with our users. We also partner with certain third parties to collect, analyze, and use some of the personal information as described below in Third-Party Analytics and Interest-Based Advertising. Where we disclose information for a business purpose, we enter into a contract that describes the business purpose and requires the service provider to keep the personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except for performing the contract.
Legal purposes. We may disclose your personal information to third parties if we have a good faith belief that disclosure of such information is helpful or reasonably necessary to (i) comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (ii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues, (iii) support auditing and compliance functions, or (iv) protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of Crux, its users, yourself, or the public.
Organizational Transfers. In the event of a merger, sale of assets, sale of equity, investment, reorganization, bankruptcy, consolidation, or similar transaction, we may share information we possess to facilitate the transaction, including during due diligence, or as a corporate asset transferred to the acquiring entity. You acknowledge that such sharing and transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of us or our assets may continue to use your information as set forth in this policy.
Aggregated and De-Identified Information. Crux may also share aggregated or de-identified information about users that cannot reasonably be used to identify you.
We use the following cookies in the Services:
The Services or the emails that you receive from us or our partners may use an application known as a "web beacon" (also known as a "clear gif" or "pixel tag"). A web beacon is an electronic file that usually consists of a single-pixel image. It can be embedded in a web page or in an email to transmit information, which could include personal information. For example, it allows an email sender to determine whether a user has opened a particular email.
We work with service providers and advertising networks to track and manage cookie information and your activities while you are using the Services and your online activities over time and across different websites. For example, third parties use some of the above cookies to deliver advertisements to you based on your visit to the Services. For more information about such activities, including how you may opt out of some processing of your data, please see the section below entitled "Third-Party Analytics and Interest-Based Advertising."
Third Party Analytics and Interest-Based Advertising
We partner with third parties to provide targeted advertising services that are customized based on your online activities over time and across unaffiliated websites. Collected information may include the content you view, the date and time that you view this content, and the website that referred you to the Services, and this information may be associated with your unique browser, device identifier, or Internet Protocol (IP) address. These practices help tailor advertisements that are relevant and useful to you. These tailored advertisements may appear on the Services or on other websites, applications, or properties. For information about interest-based advertising practices, including privacy and confidentiality, visit the Network Advertising Initiative website or the Digital Advertising Alliance website.

How Secure Is The Information We Collect?
Crux is committed to using commercially reasonable security measures, including administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information in our possession. However, as you know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse personal information that they collect from the Site. Therefore, although we work very hard to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.
Personalized areas of the Site are password-protected. Only you have access to these password-protected areas. Do not share your passwords with anyone. Crux will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or email. If you are using a computer to which others have access, such as one in a computer lab, Internet cafe, or public library, always remember to log out, clear the cache, and close your browser window when leaving the Site.
How Can You Protect Your Account?
While we do our best to protect personal information, Crux cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any password and/or account information. If your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify us and change your password. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online, especially when using a computer that other people can also use.
How Can You Access, Review Or Change Your Personal information?
Crux wishes to maintain accurate personal information. You may check your profile and add information, delete information, or correct any incorrect information in your Profile & Settings. We do retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our Site policies, and take other actions permitted by law.
How Can You Deactivate Your Account Or Edit the Information We Have About You?
If you want to correct or change information in your Personal Profile, or any other tidbits we have about you, please go to your profile page and you will be able to make your changes right there.
