Exquisite Privacy Policy

Business and personal data we collect

Business and personal data we collect

Exquisite collects data from you, through our interactions with you and through our products. You provide some of this data directly, and we get some of it by collecting data about your interactions, use, and experiences with our products. The data we collect depends on the context of your interactions with Exquisite and the choices you make, including your privacy settings and the products and features you use. We also obtain data about you from third parties.

If you represent an organization, such as a business or school, that utilizes Enterprise and Developer Products from Exquisite, please see the  Enterprise and developer products section of this privacy statement to learn how we process your data. If you are an end user of a Exquisite product or a Exquisite account provided by your organization, please see the  Products provided by your organization and the Exquisite account sections for more information.

You have choices when it comes to the technology you use and the data you share. When we ask you to provide personal data, you can decline. Many of our products require some personal data to provide you with a service. If you choose not to provide data required to provide you with a product or feature, you cannot use that product or feature. Likewise, where we need to collect personal data by law or to enter into or carry out a contract with you, and you do not provide the data, we will not be able to enter into the contract; or if this relates to an existing product you’re using, we may have to suspend or cancel it. We will notify you if this is the case at the time. Where providing the data is optional, and you choose not to share personal data, features like personalization that use such data will not work for you.


How we use personal data

Exquisite uses the data we collect to provide you with rich, interactive experiences. In particular, we use data to:

We also use the data to operate our business, which includes analyzing our performance, meeting our legal obligations, developing our workforce, and doing research.

In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect from different contexts (for example, from your use of two Exquisite products) or obtain from third parties to give you a more seamless, consistent, and personalized experience, to make informed business decisions, and for other legitimate purposes.

Our processing of personal data for these purposes includes both automated and manual (human) methods of processing. Our automated methods often are related to and supported by our manual methods. For example, our automated methods include artificial intelligence (AI), which we think of as a set of technologies that enable computers to perceive, learn, reason, and assist in decision-making to solve problems in ways that are similar to what people do. To build, train, and improve the accuracy of our automated methods of processing (including AI), we manually review some of the predictions and inferences produced by the automated methods against the underlying data from which the predictions and inferences were made. For example, we manually review short snippets of voice data that we have taken steps to de-identify to improve our speech recognition technologies. This manual review may be conducted by Exquisite employees or vendors who are working on Exquisite’s behalf.


Reasons we share personal data

We share your personal data with your consent or to complete any transaction or provide any product you have requested or authorized. We also share data with Exquisite-controlled affiliates and subsidiaries; with vendors working on our behalf; when required by law or to respond to legal process; to protect our customers; to protect lives; to maintain the security of our products; and to protect the rights and property of Exquisite and its customers.


How to access and control your personal data

You can also make choices about the collection and use of your data by Exquisite. You can control your personal data that Exquisite has obtained, and exercise your data protection rights, by contacting Exquisite or using various tools we provide. In some cases, your ability to access or control your personal data will be limited, as required or permitted by applicable law. How you can access or control your personal data will also depend on which products you use. For example, you can:

Not all personal data processed by Exquisite can be accessed or controlled via the tools above. If you want to access or control personal data processed by Exquisite that is not available via the tools above or directly through the Exquisite products you use, you can always contact Exquisite at the address in the How to contact us section or by using our  web form


Cookies and similar technologies

Cookies are small text files placed on your device to store data that can be recalled by a web server in the domain that placed the cookie. We use cookies and similar technologies for storing and honoring your preferences and settings, enabling you to sign in, providing interest-based advertising, combating fraud, analyzing how our products perform, and fulfilling other legitimate purposes. Exquisite apps use additional identifiers, such as the advertising ID in Windows described in the Advertising ID section of this privacy statement, for similar purposes.

We also use “web beacons” to help deliver cookies and gather usage and performance data. Our websites may include web beacons, cookies, or similar technologies from third-party service providers.

You have a variety of tools to control the data collected by cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies. For example, you can use controls in your internet browser to limit how the websites you visit are able to use cookies and to withdraw your consent by clearing or blocking cookies.


Products provided by your organization—notice to end users

If you use a Exquisite product with an account provided by an organization you are affiliated with, such as your work or school account, that organization can:

If you lose access to your work or school account (in event of change of employment, for example), you may lose access to products and the content associated with those products, including those you acquired on your own behalf, if you used your work or school account to sign in to such products.

Many Exquisite products are intended for use by organizations, such as schools and businesses. Please see the and developer products  section of this privacy statement. If your organization provides you with access to Exquisite products, your use of the Exquisite products is subject to your organization's policies, if any. You should direct your privacy inquiries, including any requests to exercise your data protection rights, to your organization’s administrator. When you use social features in Exquisite products, other users in your network may see some of your activity. To learn more about the social features and other functionality, please review documentation or help content specific to the Exquisite product. Exquisite is not responsible for the privacy or security practices of our customers, which may differ from those set forth in this privacy statement.

When you use a Exquisite product provided by your organization, Exquisite’s processing of your personal data in connection with that product is governed by a contract between Exquisite and your organization. Exquisite processes your personal data to provide the product to your organization and you, and in some cases for Exquisite’s business operations related to providing the product as described in the and developer products section. As mentioned above, if you have questions about Exquisite’s processing of your personal data in connection with providing products to your organization, please contact your organization. If you have questions about Exquisite’s business operations in connection with providing products to your organization as provided in the Product Terms, please contact Exquisite as described in the to contact us section.

Exquisite account

With a Exquisite account, you can sign in to Exquisite products, as well as those of select Exquisite partners. Personal data associated with your Exquisite account includes credentials, name and contact data, payment data, device and usage data, your contacts, information about your activities, and your interests and favorites. Signing in to your Exquisite account enables personalization and consistent experiences across products and devices, permits you to use cloud data storage, allows you to make payments using payment instruments stored in your Exquisite account, and enables other features.

There are three types of Exquisite account:

If you sign into a service offered by a third party with your Exquisite account, you will share with that third party the account data required by that service.


Collection of data from children

When a Exquisite product collects age, and there is an age in your jurisdiction under which parental consent or authorization is required to use the product, the product will either block users under that age or will ask them to provide consent or authorization from a parent or guardian before they can use it. We will not knowingly ask children under that age to provide more data than is required to provide for the product.

Once parental consent or authorization is granted, the child's account is treated much like any other account. The child can access communication services, like Outlook and Skype, and can freely communicate and share data with other users of all ages. Learn more about parental consent and Exquisite child accounts.

Parents or guardians can change or revoke the consent choices previously made, and review, edit, or request the deletion of the personal data of the children for whom they provided consent or authorization. As the organizer of a Exquisite family group, the parent or guardian can manage a child’s information and settings on their Safety page and view and delete a child’s data on their privacy dashboard.
