ALICORN collects data from you and from organizations that may offer ALICORN products to you. Such organizations include your employer and health plans. You provide some of this data directly, and we get some of it by collecting data about your use of our products. We also obtain data about you from third parties.
You have choices when it comes to the data you share. When we ask you to provide personal data, you can decline. If you choose not to provide data required for provision or use of ALICORN products, you cannot use our products. Similarly, where we need to collect personal data by law or to enter into or carry out an agreement with you, and you do not provide the data, we will not be able to enter into the agreement; 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, certain ALICORN product features that use such data will not work for you.
ALICORN uses the data we collect to provide you with the best possible experience with our products. Specifically, we use data to:
In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect from different contexts (for example, from your use of two ALICORN products) or obtain from third parties to give you the best possible experience, to make informed business decisions, and for other legitimate purposes.
We process personal data using automated and manual methods. Our automated methods include artificial intelligence (AI). 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. This manual review may be conducted by ALICORN employees, contractors or vendors who are working on ALICORN’s behalf.
We share your personal data with your consent or to complete any transaction or provide any product you have requested or are authorized to use. We also share data with ALICORN-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 ALICORN and its customers.
You can also make choices about the collection and use of your data by ALICORN. You can control your personal data that ALICORN has obtained, and exercise your data protection rights, by contacting ALICORN. 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. You may contact ALICORN by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

When you use an ALICORN product provided by your organization, ALICORN’s processing of your personal data in connection with that product is governed by a contract between ALICORN and your organization. ALICORN processes your personal data to provide the product to your organization and you.
With an ALICORN account, you can sign in to ALICORN products, as well as those of select ALICORN partners. Personal data associated with your ALICORN 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 ALICORN account enables personalization and consistent experiences across products and devices.
When an ALICORN 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.
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.
