1. The Information We Collect and Use
A. Non-Personally Identifiable Information. When you visit the Site, we may collect certain data that does not tell us specifically who you are. This is “Non-Personally Identifiable Information.” It includes things like your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, and the last domain you visited before coming to our Site or the domain you go to when you leave. It also includes various statistical data such as which pages you visit on our Site, how long you stay on them, and what you click.
We also may use a small piece of code (sometimes referred to as “1x1 clear pixel,” “Web beacon” or “clear GIF”) placed in the pages of the Site to help us gather additional information about which parts of the site receive the most visitors and other user traffic patterns, and enable us to administer the site.
No Personally Identifiable Information (as defined below) is collected through our cookies or Web beacons however we may, from time to time, allow advertisers, third-party advertising networks, and third-party advertising serving companies to serve advertisements directly to you within our Site, Services, and Software. By serving these advertisements directly to you, these companies can set their own cookies on your computer, which may not expire, and trigger their own Web beacons. If you would like to contact the advertisers, third-party advertising networks, and third-party advertising serving companies with which we have relationships to learn more about their privacy policies and what options (if any) they offer to opt out of their data collection, please visit their web sites.
B. Personally Identifiable Information. We also may collect information that can be used to identify you (“Personally Identifiable Information”). We only collect Personally Identifiable Information when you specifically provide it to us. For example, in connection with your subscription to or use of certain features of the Site you may be asked to create a user account and provide certain information including your name, age, date of birth, email addresses, address, and telephone number. You may also provide User Uploaded Information to the Site, as described in the Terms, or you may provide information such as your credit card number in connection with the purchase of services or content available through the Site. When you create a user account with us and sign in to your account on the Site or post User Uploaded Information, you are not anonymous to us.
We may use Personally Identifiable Information to fulfill your requests, respond to your inquiries and provide other services, and to alert you to information, offers, or publications in which we think you may be interested. The emails that we send contain links that enable you to “unsubscribe” from such mailings.
We do not sell Personally Identifiable Information or other information you make available to the Site, or share such information with third parties, except as described below.
From time to time, we may partner with unaffiliated companies or individuals for market research, product development or similar purposes. These companies or individuals may be provided with access to Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information, but we will require by contract that they agree to maintain the confidentiality, security and integrity of such information. We also may subcontract with other companies and individuals to do work on our behalf; they may be provided with access to Personally Identifiable and Non-Personally Identifiable Information, but only as needed to perform their functions.
We may share Personally Identifiable Information with third parties, who may contact you to offer products and services. At any time, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties.
We may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties in connection with a corporate transaction where all or a portion of our business (e.g., a portion that includes our customer lists) is sold or transferred. We also may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information if disclosure is required by law or as part of a lawsuit or government investigation or proceeding, or in order to permit us to exercise or preserve our legal rights or take action regarding potentially illegal activities or to protect the safety of any person.
We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor information, comments or other content that you voluntarily disclose and post to the Site. We reserve the right to remove any such information or material for any reason or no reason, including without limitation, if in our sole opinion such information or material violates, or may violate, any applicable law or the Terms or to protect or defend our rights or property or those of any third party. We also reserve the right to remove information upon the request of any third party.
C. Location Information. We may obtain information about your physical or geographic location through information provided by you or by use of such means as GPS or by using other geolocation tools in your smart phone or other mobile device.
2. Data Security
We cannot ensure or warrant the security or privacy of any information you transmit to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect Personally Identifiable Information. But we can make no guarantees or promises in this regard, and you provide information to us at your own risk.
Please be advised that we will never send e-mails asking you to provide or confirm credit card numbers, dates of birth, usernames or passwords. Such an e-mail is an example of “phishing” or “spoofing” (i.e., counterfeit websites purporting to be from a legitimate company and designed to trick recipients into divulging personal information in order to steal identities and financial account credentials). If you receive a “phishing” or “spoofing” e-mail, DO NOT click on any link contained in the e-mail. Delete it from your computer or device immediately and contact us at email@example.com.
We do not ourselves collect, process, or store your credit card information and therefore have no control over or responsibility for your account information. PAYPAL is our third party payment processors to handle credit card transactions.
In compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act), we do not knowingly solicit or collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. The Site and its PURPOSES are directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older. If you become aware that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information without parental consent, please contact us immediately. If we become aware that a child under the age of 13 has created an account and/or provided us with personal information without parental consent, we take steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s account.
4. Access to your information
California Privacy Rights. If you are a user of the Site and a California resident, California’s “Shine the Light” law (California Civil Code § 1798.83) permits you to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, information regarding our disclosure of your Personally Identifiable Information (if any) to third parties for direct marketing purposes. If this law applies to you and you would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to the address provided in Section 8 below.
