C3 is committed to the protection of the privacy rights of individuals. This Privacy Policy (“C3 Privacy Policy”) explains how C3 handles information relating to an identified or identifiable individual (“Personal Information”) that is provided to C3 or that C3 collects when you visit www.c3.ai (the “Site”). More specifically, this Privacy Policy informs you as to the categories of Personal Information that we collect or process, why such Personal Information is processed, how it is used and what rights you have. This Privacy Policy does not apply to Personal Information collected on any third-party site or application (including advertising) that may link to or be accessible from our websites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or data collection, use and disclosure practices of those sites. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of each site you visit.

The terms “you,” “your,” and “yours” refer to anyone utilizing the Site. The terms “C3,” “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to C3 IoT, Inc. and its subsidiaries and affiliates. By using the Site, you consent to the practices set forth in this Privacy Policy. We may periodically make changes to this Privacy Policy that we will include on this page. It is your responsibility to review this Privacy Policy frequently and remain informed about any changes.

Whenever Personal Information is transferred out of the EEA, the transfer is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (according to EU Commission Decision 87/2010/EC or any future replacement) or adherence to the Privacy Shield (when applicable for transfers to the United States). Regardless of where you live or where you provide information to us, you authorize C3 to use your information worldwide and to export your information to the United States and other countries.
