COGNITIVEVR INC. dba Cognitive3D, its parents, subsidiaries and affiliates, (“Cognitive3D”, “we”, or “our”) operates a cloud-based platform for data collection, visualization and analytics tools for measuring human behavior within 3D based content which may be accessed either through an SDK and/or web application (the “Platform”).
1. HOW WE OBTAIN PERSONAL DATA
The Service involves the collection and processing of your personal and Platform related data, which is information about you or that identifies you.
Subject to legal, contractual and technical requirements, you may choose not to provide Cognitive3D with certain data or request the deletion of certain data, which may impact the essential operation of the Service.
2. PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT
We collect certain personal data when you begin using the Service as controlled by our Customers. The following is a description of the personal data that we may collect, use and process on behalf of our Customers:
a) Asset Preparation Data: To avoid Customers streaming 3D information in every user session, we collect assets on behalf of the Customer during SDK setup which can include 3D scene geometry, including meshes, materials, textures, lighting information, skins, animations and a user-selected screenshot – including the base/static scene, and any dynamic objects selected by our Customers. Some of this information can contain unstructured personal data.
(collectively the “Asset Data”);
b) User Data: User data will include references to Asset Data as well as additional data gleaned from the operation of the Platform. User Data includes IP addresses which is used to identify geographic location, data on how users move their controllers or hands, how users move their head which is also used to infer gaze, where users look and fixate with their eyes, how users look through/move through 3D space and occasionally biometric data as configured by our Customer such as cognitive load, sampled heart rate data, pupillometry or other sensors as equipped by our Customer.
(collectively the “User Data”);
c) your name, email and details of any communications when you contact us directly; and
d) behavioral tracking data when you interact with our Website or Platform.
User Data and some Asset Data may be classified as “Biometric Data” or some similar terms in applicable biometric privacy legislation and thus has special protections with regards to its collection, retention and security. Cognitive3D shall comply with all applicable biometric privacy legislation, including any verification of consent gathering procedures applicable to our Customers.

a) information under regulatory or contractual handling requirements (e.g., Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards), including, but without limitation, financial account numbers, debit or credit card information, magnetic stripe data, or card verification values;
b) government issued personal identifiers, including, but without limitation, driver’s license numbers, passport numbers, or other state issued identification numbers;
c) certain bio-metric identifiers, including genetic data, iris scans, thumb or finger prints or health data;
d) personally identifiable information collected from children under the age of 13 or from online services directed toward children;
e) real time geo-location data which can track or identify an individual’s precise movements;
f) passwords, authentication/authorization credentials, business secrets deemed highly confidential (e.g., highly-confidential business strategies and communications, sensitive attorney-client privileged and confidential communications);
g) export-controlled information for which Customer has not obtained all required export licenses or government approvals; or

Cognitive3D complies with international personal data transfer laws in applicable jurisdictions. For European Economic Area (“EEA”) residents, Cognitive3D complies with Articles 44-49 of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”). Currently, all transfers of personal data to Canada from residents of the EEA are covered by an adequacy decision as described in Article 45 of the GDPR.

Your personal data is retained until you request its deletion or until Cognitive3D no longer requires such data for the purpose for which it was collected or until required to be deleted by laws applicable in your jurisdiction.

Cognitive3D complies with the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and all other applicable laws and regulations concerning children and the Internet include those applicable in the EEA. The Service is not directed to children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of 13.

Some of our Services are not available for use for children under the age of majority, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children in connection with those Services.
10. DO NOT TRACK DISCLOSURE
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a web or device setting that allows you to request that receivers of personal data stop their tracking activities. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser or device or use alternative consumer choice mechanisms, your browser or device sends a special signal to websites, analytics companies, advertising networks, plug-in providers and other web services you encounter to stop tracking your activity.
Cognitive3D does comply with DNT signals as specified and configured in the XR Privacy Framework (“XRPF”). The XRPF, when optionally setup by our Customer, will allow our Customer's users the opportunity to allow or disallow some or all streams of User Data as collected by our Customer. Note that restricting the collection of certain types of personal data in this manner may cause unintended problems with the Service and some or all of the features on the Platform may or may not function as intended.
