For account-based marketing, this could include “likes” that we find in the public domain.

Also, we rely on fraud monitoring to help us reduce the need to manually review orders for fraud. We could also rely on automated processing in the context of employment and to ensure our employees are adhering to our internal security policies. You have the right to avoid any decisions based on automated data processing where they can be characterized as profiling.
