Last Updated: Feb. 1, 2024

This Privacy Policy explains how information about you is collected, used and disclosed by Guardify, a division of VidaNyx, Inc. (“Guardify” or “we”). This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect when you use our websites and online services (collectively, “Services”) or when you otherwise interact with us, including when you contact us for customer support. Please note that our use of the content of the interview videos uploaded to our Services along with the content of attachments and other interview notes (collectively “User Content”) is not subject to this policy and instead is governed by our user agreements available at www.guardify.com.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you an email).
