While using the Services, you may voluntarily provide (such as when you register for use of our products, contact us with inquiries, respond to a survey or browse or use certain parts of the Services) or we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your email address, name, phone number, other information that can be associated with or which relates to a person and/or could be used to identify a person (“Personal Information”).
To make a payment to us, we require you to provide your billing details, such as a name, address, email address and financial information corresponding method of payment (e.g., a credit card number and expiration date or a bank account number). If you provide a billing address, we will regard that as the location of the account holder.
We also automatically collect certain technical data that is sent to us from the computer, mobile device and/or browser through which you access the Services, such as a unique identifier associated with your access device and/or browser (including, for example, your Internet Protocol (IP) address) characteristics about your access device and/or browser, statistics on your activities on the Services, information about how you came to the Services and data collected through Cookies, Pixel Tags, Local Shared Objects, Web Storage and other similar technologies. See below under Log Data and Cookies.
We collect this information for the purpose of providing the Service, identifying and communicating with you, verifying your identity, responding to your requests/inquiries, billing and payment on your account, servicing your purchase orders, avoiding fraud or protecting the integrity of our services, and improving our services.
If you provide Personal Information for a certain purpose, we may use the Personal Information in connection with the purpose for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by e-mail, we will use the Personal Information you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem and will respond to the email address from which the contact originated. Or, if you supply Personal Information relating to your identity or qualifications to use certain portions of the Services, we will use that information to make a decision as to granting you access to use such Services and to monitor your ongoing qualification to use such Services.
When you access the Service (including via mobile devices, through use of our products or website), we may collect certain information automatically, including, but not limited to, the type of equipment or mobile device you use, your device unique identifier, the IP address of your device, your operating system, the type of Internet browser you use and other statistics (“Log Data”).
In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze this type of information in order to increase the functionality of our Services. These third party service providers have their own privacy policies addressing how they use such information.
You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. The Help feature on most browsers provide information on how to accept cookies, disable cookies or to notify you when receiving a new cookie.
If you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some features of our Service and we recommend that you leave them turned on.
Do Not Track Disclosure
We support Do Not Track (“DNT”). Do Not Track is a preference you can set in your web browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked.
You can enable or disable Do Not Track by visiting the Preferences or Settings page of your web browser.
Where it is in accordance with your marketing preferences, we may use your Personal Information to contact you in the future for our marketing and advertising purposes, including without limitation, to inform you about services or events we believe might be of interest to you, to develop promotional or marketing materials and provide those materials to you, and to display content and advertising on or off the Services that we believe might be of interest to you.
You can also “opt out” of receiving these electronic communications by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any such electronic communication or by contacting us using the details provided below. You will then be removed from the marketing email list — however, we may still communicate with you, for example to send you service-related emails that are necessary for the administration and use of your account, to respond to service requests, or for other non-marketing purposes.
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services and/or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used. These companies include our marketing agencies, database service providers, backup and disaster recovery service providers, payment services providers, email service providers and others. When we engage another company to perform such functions, we may provide them with information, including Personal Information, in connection with their performance of such functions.
These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform specific tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use your information for any other purpose.
Parent Companies, Subsidiaries and Affiliates
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, and we strive to implement and maintain reasonable, commercially acceptable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information we store, in order to protect it from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure.
However, please be aware that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure or error free and we are unable to guarantee the absolute security of the Personal Information we have collected from you. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us electronically. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any Personal Information.
We generally discard information about you when we no longer need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it–which are described in the section above on “Information Collection and Use”–and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. Notwithstanding, we may retain your Personal Information as part of providing ongoing services for our clients and maintaining updated records as part of our services. When we delete your Personal Information it may persist on backup or archival media for an additional period of time for legal, tax or regulatory reasons (see “Legal Requirements” section, below) or for legitimate and lawful business purposes.
We may disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by law in order to (for example) respond to a subpoena or request from law enforcement, a court or a government agency (including in response to public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements), or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with a legal obligation, (b) protect or defend our rights, interests or property or that of third parties, (c) prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Services, (d) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Users of the Services or the public, or (e) protect against legal liability.
Links To Other Sites
We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.
Only persons age 18 or older have permission to access our Service. Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 16 (“Children”).
In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, we may conduct research on our customer demographics, interests and behavior based on Personal Information and other information that we have collected. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis and this aggregate information does not identify you personally and we therefore consider and treat this data as Non-Personal Information.
