Technologies Used To Automatically Collect Information
To collect the information in this “9. Information Automatically Collected” section, we and our service providers use Internet server logs, cookies, tags, tracking pixels, and other similar tracking technologies. We use these technologies in order to offer you a more tailored experience in the future by understanding and remembering your particular browsing preferences.
● A web server log is a file where website activity is stored.

We also use algorithms to recognize patterns in data.
14. Retention Policies
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize such information, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
We retain the data we collect for different periods of time depending on what it is and how we use it:
● Some data is anonymized automatically after a set period of time.
● We keep some data until you delete your Oil Shelf Account, such as information about how often you use our services. Please see “16. How to Export & Delete Data We Collect From You” (below) for more information about how to delete your personal information.
● And some data we retain for longer periods of time when necessary for legitimate business or legal purposes, such as security, fraud and abuse prevention, or financial record-keeping.
When you delete data, we follow a deletion process to make sure that your data is safely and completely removed from our servers or retained only in anonymized form. We try to ensure that our services protect information from accidental or malicious deletion. Because of this, there may be delays between when you delete something and when copies are deleted from our active and backup systems.
15. Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information
You have choices regarding the information we collect and how it is used. We have created mechanisms to provide you with control over your information. This section describes key controls for managing your privacy across our Services.
Oil Shelf Marketing and Advertising
From time to time, we may send you updates, alerts, news, and mailings relating to matters that we think may be of interest to you. Most messages we send will be via email. For some messages, we may use personal information we collect about you to help us determine the most relevant marketing information to share with you.
If you are in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), we will only send you marketing messages if you have given us your consent to do so.
Opting out of Marketing and Promotional Communications
You can unsubscribe from our marketing and promotional communications at any time. If you do not want to receive messages from us, you will be able to tell us when we first collect your contact details or by refusing or withdrawing your consent.

16. How To Export & Delete Data We Collect From You
Export Your Data

Delete Your Data
You can delete your information from your Oil Shelf Account at any time. To delete your information, you can:

Email Oil Shelf to Request Access to, Change, or Delete Information
Based on the applicable laws of your country, you may have the right to request access to the personal information we collect from you, change that information, or delete it. You may send us an email through the “Support” page of the Websites or the App to: (i) request access to, (ii) correct, or (iii) delete any personal information (including, without limitation, recovery of your password, if any) that you have provided to us.

We may not be able to accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
17. Data Security
While no service is completely secure, we have implemented reasonable technical and organizational security measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure.
We build security into our Services to protect your information. All Oil Shelf products are built with strong security features that continuously protect your information. The insights we gain from maintaining our Services help us detect and automatically block security threats from ever reaching you. And if we do detect something risky that we think you should know about, we will notify you and help guide you through steps to stay better protected.
Security Measures Used
We work hard to protect you and Oil Shelf from unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we hold, including:
● We use encryption to keep your data private while in transit.
● We regularly review our information collection, storage, and processing practices, including physical security measures, to prevent unauthorized access to our systems.
● We restrict access to personal information to Oil Shelf employees, contractors, and agents who need that information in order to process it. Anyone with this access is subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
Acknowledgment of Risk
While we take reasonable efforts to guard your personal information we knowingly collect directly from you, no electronic transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. So, we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat our security and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your information. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, transmission of personal information to and from our Services is at your own risk. You should only access the Services within a secure environment.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the Websites and/or the App, you are responsible for keeping your password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Websites and/or the App, or sharing any of your information or database with your friends, family, co-workers or other third parties. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Websites and/or the App. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we take reasonable measures to protect your personal information in conformance with applicable laws, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to the Websites. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Websites and/or the App.

Browser web storage. Browser web storage enables websites to store data in a browser on a device. When used in "local storage" mode, it enables data to be stored across sessions. This makes data retrievable even after a browser has been closed and reopened. One technology that facilitates web storage is HTML 5.
Cookies. A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the site again, the cookie allows that site to recognize your browser. Cookies may store user preferences and other information.

Oil Shelf Account. You may access some of our services by signing up for an Oil Shelf Account and providing us with some personal information (typically your email address and a password). This account information is used to authenticate you when you access Oil Shelf services and protect your account from unauthorized access by others. You can edit or delete your account at any time through your Oil Shelf Account settings.
IP address. Every device connected to the Internet is assigned a number known as an Internet protocol (IP) address. These numbers are usually assigned in geographic blocks. An IP address can often be used to identify the location from which a device is connecting to the Internet.

Unique identifiers. A unique identifier is a string of characters that can be used to uniquely identify a browser, app, or device. Different identifiers vary in how permanent they are, whether they can be reset by users, and how they can be accessed. Unique identifiers can be used for various purposes, including security and fraud detection, syncing services such as your email inbox, remembering your preferences, and providing personalized advertising. For example, unique identifiers stored in cookies help sites display content in your browser in your preferred language. You can configure your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Unique identifiers may also be incorporated into a device by its manufacturer (sometimes called a universally unique ID or UUID), such as the IMEI-number of a mobile phone.
