disciplinary actions and other sensitive employee matters, whether it is stored manually or
electronically, is accessible by other Mortarr employees only if necessary with respect to
legitimate human resource functions or issues; however, an employee’s picture and any

makes it clear that Employee Information will be provided to a third party/subprocessor
(ex. payroll, benefits, travel, reimbursement, and other systems used in the employment context).

marketing assistance, data storage, providing search results and links (including
paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer
service. Such companies shall only use your Personal Information for those purposes
required to perform their functions. Additionally, Mortarr may share your Personal

repair of the Site or equipment. Mortarr may be required to disclose an individual’s personal

security or law enforcement requirements.
H. Protection of Personal Information

while maintaining data accuracy, Mortarr has put in place appropriate physical, electronic,
and managerial policies and procedures to safeguard the Personal Information Mortarr collects.
Although we do our best to protect the Personal Information, we cannot and do not guarantee the
security of your Personal Information.
Mortarr will retain your Personal Information for only as long as it serves the purposes
for which it was collected and will be retained in a form identifying or making identifiable

J. Other Limits to Your Privacy

the privacy practices or the content of such websites. Mortarr has no control over the use
of such websites and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose any Personal
Information on these websites.

impact functionality or prevent the use of Mortarr’s products or services. You have the right,
at any time, to opt-out of receiving marketing messages from Mortarr by sending an email
to email@example.com, by unsubscribing through the manage
subscription link in an email. We will try to comply with your request(s) as soon as
reasonably practicable. Please note that if you opt-out of receiving marketing-related

disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy in the case in question,
or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated.
To protect your privacy and security, Mortarr may also take reasonable steps to verify your
identity before making corrections to or deleting your account.
