We may also obtain information about you from other sources. For example, we may collect information such as ratings, dots and descriptions about you provided by other users of our Services. If you or your social media friends create, log into, or link a PRIOS account with a social media site, or use other features of our Services that integrate with social media sites, we may receive certain information such as your name and profile photo, in accordance with the authorization procedures determined by such social media site. We may also collect information, including demographic information (such as your gender and age range), from analytics providers and other third parties that provide us with information so we can better understand you.
Information We Infer
We may derive information or draw inferences about you based on the other personal information we collect about you. For example, based on the attribute scores or dots you receive through our Services, we may infer your strengths and weaknesses or how you rank with regards to certain attributes as compared to others in your group.

PRIOS is based in the United States and we process and store information in the U.S. and other countries. Therefore, we and our service providers may transfer your information to, or store or access it in, jurisdictions that may not provide equivalent levels of data protection as your home jurisdiction. When we transfer personal information from the EEA or the UK, we do so in reliance on an approved data transfer mechanism, such as by executing Standard Contractual Clauses. Where relevant, you may contact us as specified below to obtain a copy of the safeguards we use to transfer your personal information. We have also certified to the U.S. Department of Commerce that we adhere to its EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework in connection with our transfer to the United States of personal information that relates to individuals in the EEA and the UK. To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view our certification, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/.
We are committed to resolving complaints about our processing of your personal information. You may contact us about any questions or complaints as indicated in the “Contact Us” section below. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from us, or if we have not addressed your complaint to your satisfaction, please contact JAMS, an alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States, or visit https://www.jamsadr.com/eu-us-privacy-shield for more information or to file a complaint. The services of JAMS are provided at no cost to you.
Under certain conditions, you may be able to invoke binding arbitration to resolve your complaint. PRIOS is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission. If we share personal information transferred to the U.S. under the Privacy Shield or under another appropriate safeguard with a third-party service provider that processes such data on our behalf, then we will be liable for that third party’s processing in violation of the Privacy Shield or another appropriate safeguard, unless we can prove that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
You may update certain account information you provide to us at any time by logging into your account and adjusting your settings. If you no longer want us to process information about you, you can request that we delete your account through the customer support functions of our Services, but note that we may retain certain information as required by law or for legitimate business purposes, where permitted by applicable law. We may also retain cached or archived copies of information about you for a certain period of time, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
