Important Information: Please read this carefully as we have made updates to our Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy goes into effect January 25, 2024 (“Effective Date”).


This Privacy Policy describes the information that the Crosslink Family of Companies (“we”, “our”, “us”) including CrossLink Professional Tax Solutions, LLC, CrossLink Tax Tech Solutions, LLC and its two d/b/as, CrossLink Tax Pro Alliance and uTax, and Audit Allies, LLC (collectively “CrossLink”) collects from you, or you may provide through your interactions with,,,,, and other websites and applications owned or controlled by CrossLink that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Sites”), and services and products offered by CrossLink. For certain offerings on our Sites, there may be additional notices about our information practices and choices. Please read those additional privacy disclosures to understand how they apply to you.


To contact us, see the section “How To Contact Us” below.


Scope of this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy describes our privacy practices for individuals in the United States. We do not market to nor target subjects of other countries. We meet all rules and regulations relating to data protection and security promulgated by the Internal Revenue Service and its Security Summit and comply with the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.


Our Privacy Policy does not apply where CrossLink processes your information in our role as a service provider or data processor on behalf of a customer or entity that acts as the data controller, who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal information (for example, customers of our professional tax software products or companies that co-brand our software). When we act as a service provider or data processor, the privacy policy of the data controller will govern the processing of your personal information, defined as information that identifies, relates to, describes, or is reasonably capable of being associated with or linked to you. In certain circumstances, there may be more than one data controller processing your information. In these situations, we act as an independent data controller over our processing activities.


This Privacy Policy explains CrossLink’s collection, use, retention, disclosure and security of information about you. It also describes your choices regarding the use, access, and correction of your personal information. By using our Sites, products, and services, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


Since your privacy is a priority to us, CrossLink will not share nonpublic information about you with third parties outside of the CrossLink Family of Companies without your consent, except as explained in our Privacy Policy.

The Centralization of Your Information.

We use the information you choose to share with us across our platform. Here’s what we mean by “platform” – when you choose to share data with us or bring over information from third parties, we use that data together, not just within the individual offering(s) you’re using. In other words, data entered into one service or product becomes a part of your “CrossLink Account”. Your CrossLink Account includes your credentials; your name and contact details; payment information; information about your activities, your interests and preferences; the content you place in our Sites, products and services; information we have collected about you from third-party sources and insights that are associated with you. The information in your CrossLink Account will be shared across the CrossLink Family of Companies to generate our various offerings, services and experiences and otherwise maximize the benefits to you of our platform.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Sites and to read the privacy policy of each website that collects personally identifiable information.


Third-Party Payment Processor.

We may use a third-party payment processor for payments. CrossLink does not store credit card details and instead relies on our third-party payment processor for this. Furthermore, in connection with the processing of such payments, we do not retain any personally identifiable information or any financial information such as credit card numbers. Rather, all such information is provided directly to our third-party processor whose use of your personal information is governed by their privacy policy. Please contact CrossLink support for third-party payment processor information.

Information Retention.

Unless you specifically ask us to delete your personal information, we retain your personal information as long as it is necessary to comply with our data retention requirements and provide you with our products and services.

  1. comply with our legal or regulatory compliance needs;
  2. to exercise, establish or defend legal claims; and/or
  3. to protect against fraudulent or abusive activity on our service.


This means we may keep different information for different periods.


There may be occasions where we are unable to fully delete, anonymize, or de-identify your information due to technical, legal, regulatory compliance or other operational reasons. Where this is the case, we will take reasonable measures to securely isolate your personal information from any further processing until such time as we are able to delete, anonymize, or de-identify it.

If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you with our products and services, contact us.

Keeping Your Information Safe is Important to Us.

The security of personal information is extremely important to us. We employ security measures consistent with standard industry practices to prevent unauthorized access to your personal information collected. In addition, CrossLink meets all rules and regulations relating to data protection and security for the tax industry promulgated by the Internal Revenue Service and its Security Summit.


For example, we:

·     Constantly work to review and update our security practices and procedures and implement accepted best methods to protect your personal information.

·     Comply with applicable laws and security standards.

·     Securely transmit your sensitive personal information.

·     Train our staff and require them to safeguard your data.


You play a critical role in protecting your information by maintaining up-to-date computer security protections and by not sharing your username or password with anyone. NEVERTHELESS, NO DATA TRANSMISSION OVER THE INTERNET, OR METHOD OF ELECTRONIC STORAGE, IS 100% SECURE. THEREFORE, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THE ABSOLUTE SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION.

California Resident Rights

This describes the rights of Californians under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, which was amended by the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (together, “CCPA”). The CCPA requires businesses like us to provide certain information to California consumers. This contains the following four parts:

  • You Can Opt Out of Our Sharing Your Personal Information. We Do Not Sell Your Personal Information.
  • Your CCPA Rights
  • The CCPA Categories of Personal Information We Collect and the Sources
  • The CCPA Categories of Personal Information We Disclose for a “Business Purpose”

You Can Opt Out of Our Sharing Your Personal Information. We Do Not Sell Your Personal Information.

You can opt out of us sharing your personal information by contacting us or filling out the Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Data Form which is located on our Sites’ main page. The CCPA requires us to disclose if we share your personal information. We may share your personal information, including information about your visits to our Sites, with our partners in order to market CrossLink’s products and services to you on other platforms.

We do not sell your personal information.




Your Rights Under the CCPA

The CCPA provides Californians with the following rights:


Requests for Information.

You (or your authorized agent) can request a copy of your personal information. Under the CCPA, you can also request that we disclose how we have collected, used, and disclosed your personal information over the past 12 months, including the categories of personal information we collected and our purposes for doing so; the categories of sources for that information; the categories of third parties with whom we shared it or disclosed it for a business purpose and our purposes for doing so. Companies that sell personal information (we do not) must make additional disclosures.


Your Right to Opt-Out of Sales.

We do not sell personal information, so we don’t have an opt-out.


Your Right to Opt-Out of Sharing.

Under the CCPA, you can opt out of the sharing of your personal information with third parties for cross-context behavioral advertising purposes. You can direct us not to share your personal information as described above.


Your Right to Limit the Use of Sensitive Personal Information.

Under the CCPA, you can limit a business’s use and disclosure of your sensitive personal information to certain purposes specified by law (e.g., providing you with services you request or preventing fraud, or for other purposes that don’t involve deriving your attributes). We only use sensitive personal information for such permitted purposes, so we don’t have an opt-out.


Nondiscrimination for Exercising Your CCPA Rights.

The CCPA prohibits businesses from discriminating against you for exercising your rights under the law. Such discrimination may include denying services, charging different prices or rates for services, providing a different level or quality of services, or suggesting that you will receive a different level or quality of goods or services as a result of exercising your rights.


Your Right to Correct Inaccurate Personal Information.

You can edit much of your personal information through your account with us (such as your profile information). You can also request that we correct inaccurate personal information.


Your Right to Delete Personal Information.

You can request that we delete your personal information by requesting that we deleted your CrossLink Account or by requesting we delete specific information about you. We honor such requests unless an exception applies, such as when the information is necessary to complete the transaction or contract for which it was collected or when information is being used to detect, prevent, or investigate security incidents, comply with laws, or identify and repair bugs.


The CCPA Categories of Personal Information We Collect and the Sources
