The Site may contain links to third party websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other Web sites. We encourage our users to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site they visit. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by us through the Site.
“Personal Information” means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. “Non-Personal Information” means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information; Non-Personal Information does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons. We collect Personal Information and Non-Personal Information, as described below.
We collect Personal Information as required to offer Services, as listed in the Terms, as voluntarily provided by you in the course of correspondence or registration, and as otherwise identified below. In addition, we may collect certain Non-Personal Information which cannot be used to personally identify any user, such as anonymous, aggregate or statistical data.
If you register for an Account on the Site, or provide us with your e-mail address to receive Optional Communications (as defined below), we will store the Personal Information provided until you delete it from your Account (if applicable) or request that we delete it. We may also collect Personal Information from users who do not register for an Account or receive Optional Communications, as necessary to provide the Services.
We do not collect or maintain Personal Information from people we actually know are under the age of majority in their home jurisdiction. Minors are not permitted to use and access the Site and Services. If we later learn that a user is a minor, we will take steps to remove that user's Personal Information from our databases and to prevent the user from utilizing the Site and the Service.
We may use information collected from the Site and the Services in several ways, as outlined in this policy. For example, we may use Personal Information as needed to provide the Site and the Services, to create Accounts, and to communicate with users regarding their use of the Services. We may also use both Personal Information and Non-Personal Information when evaluating ways to improve the Site and the Service. As further described below, in limited circumstances we may disclose collected information, including Personal Information, to certain third parties in connection as necessary to provide Services or as required by law, as further described below.
We may also use Personal Information collected through the Site to communicate with users from whom such information was collected in order to provide promotional materials about the Company. However, unlike communications which are necessary to provide Services (“Necessary Communications”), promotional communications are optional (“Optional Communications”), and we will refrain from sending that kind of information to you if you inform us that you prefer not to receive them. If you wish to cease receiving Optional Communications, please follow the “unsubscribe” instructions provided in such Optional Communications, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Users who register for an Account may access their Account at any time to update Personal Information. Subsequent uses or disclosures of information by us will reflect those changes, but we may not have the ability to update any information previously disclosed to any third party in accordance with this Policy.
You may request deletion of your Personal Information by us. When we delete any information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives.
The Site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and unauthorized alteration of Personal Information in our possession and control. For example, whenever the Service requests that Registered Users provide sensitive Personal Information, such as credit card account information, that information is encrypted with industry standard encryption techniques. Credit card information is never stored by us longer than necessary to complete a transaction.
Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide security for information in our possession and control, no security system can prevent against all potential security breaches, and we bear no liability for uses or disclosures of Personal Information or Non-Personal Information arising in connection with the theft thereof. Likewise, Account holders are responsible for safeguarding the confidentiality of passwords, and we bear no liability for access to, or use or disclosure of, Personal Information, if such access, use or disclosure arises in connection with the theft or disclosure (whether intentional or negligent) of a password.
