All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Third- Party Sites:

Our Site may contain links to other third-party sites. When you click on one of these links you are visiting a website operated by someone other than OKclarity, and the operator of that website may have different privacy policies.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics, Facebook Pixel & Linkedin Audience tracking to get a better understanding of how visitors interact with the website.
