By collecting Usage Information, we learn how best to tailor our Website to our visitors.

As explained below, we collect Usage Information through various automated means (“Tracking Technologies”), such as server logs, cookies, and web beacons, both on our Website and in emails that we send to you:

  • Log Information: When you interact with the Website, our servers automatically record Usage Information that your browser or device sends such as IP address, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamps, and related data. This information may be stored in log files.
  • Cookies: Like many companies, our Website may use “cookies.” Cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain websites. We may use cookies to tell us, for example, whether you have visited us before or if you are a new visitor and to help us identify site features in which you may have the greatest interest. Cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site.
  • Web Beacons. Web beacons are small graphic images, also known as “Internet tags,” “pixel tags” or “clear gifs,” embedded in web pages. Web beacons may be used, for example, to count the number of visitors to the Website, to monitor how users navigate the Website, and to count content views.
  • In-App Tracking Methods: There are a variety of tracking technologies that may be included in mobile applications, and these are not browser-based like cookies and cannot be controlled by browser settings. Some use device identifiers, or other identifiers such as “Ad IDs,” to associate app user activity to a particular app and to track user activity across apps and/or devices.

Some information about your use of the Website and certain third-party services may be collected using Tracking Technologies across time and services, and used by us and third parties for purposes such as to associate different devices you use, and deliver relevant ads and/or other content to you on the Website and certain other sites or online services.

Also, both Mobius and the third party may have access to certain information about you and your use of the Website and the third-party service.

We may engage and work with service providers and other third parties to serve advertisements on third-party services.

Transferring Personal Information to the United States

Mobius Executive Leadership LLC is located in the United States. Please be aware that any personal information we collect may be transferred to and processed in the United States and be subject to United States law. The privacy and data protection laws in the United States may not be equivalent to the laws in your country of residence.

Note for European Residents

If you are a resident of the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, or the United Kingdom, our processing of your personal information may be subject to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in which case, please note the following points in addition to the rest of this Privacy Policy:

  • Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will typically collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you.

  • The United States has not sought nor received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 45 of the GDPR. We rely on derogations for specific situations as set forth in Article 49 of the GDPR. In particular, we collect and transfer to the U.S. personal information only: with your consent; to perform a contract with you; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of Mobius in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms.

  • You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. You can find information about your data protection regulator here. For complaints from EU data subjects that cannot be resolved with Mobius directly, Mobius will cooperate with such EU authorities and will implement advice they provide with respect to such unresolved complaints.

Data Retention

We will store your personal information for no longer than is necessary for the performance of our obligations or to achieve the purposes for which the information was collected, or as may be permitted under applicable law. To determine the appropriate retention period, we will consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the data; the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of the data; the purposes for which we process the data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means; and the applicable legal requirements.

Data Security

We take reasonable measures to protect your information from loss, theft, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.

Children’s Privacy

This Website is not intended for, nor targeted to, children under 18, and we do not knowingly or intentionally collect information from children under 18. If we learn that we have received information directly from a child who is under the age of 18, we will delete the information in accordance with applicable law.
