What types of personal information do you collect and how do you use it?
Account Data is information that we collect about you when you inquire about or subscribe to our products and services. This type of information typically includes name, email address, phone number, mailing address and payment information, and enables us to contact you for purposes such as discussing your interest in our products and services, creating an account for you to access our online services. Once your account has been created, additional information about you, such as account and communication preferences, may also be requested to enable you to configure and personalize your account. Whether you provide this additional information is up to you. You can choose what additional information you wish to provide, make changes to existing information, and to opt-out of future communications at any time by updating your account preferences.
Usage Data is information that we collect about you regarding your use of our Website, and typically includes online identifiers such as IP addresses, MAC addresses, and “cookie” data (see below for more information on cookies). Such Usage Data generally by itself cannot be used to identify or contact you. We may also collect information regarding the types of devices you are using to access the Website, including device type, browser type, operating system and language settings. In addition, we may collect information related to the Website pages you visit, including the date, time, and length of your page visit, and information about which internet services provider you use and how you use it.
Usage Data helps us to optimize the design and operation of our Website to best suit your needs and interests. It also helps us to diagnose, troubleshoot, and fix any technical issues involving our Website.
Do you share personal information?
We may also disclose your personal information if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule of law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other valid legal processes. We may disclose personal information in special circumstances when we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone when necessary to protect the safety and/or security of our users, our Website or the general public.
We may provide to third parties personal information about you that does not allow you to be identified or contacted (such as Usage Data), including where such personal information is combined with similar information of other users of our Website. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of unique users who visit our Website, the demographic breakdown of our registered user of our Website, or the activities that visitors to our Website engage in while on our Website. The third parties to which we may provide this information may include potential or actual advertisers, providers of advertising services (including website tracking services), commercial partners, sponsors, licensees, researchers and other similar parties.
How long do you retain personal information and how do you protect it?
Protecting the confidentiality of any personal information we have collected about you is of the utmost importance to us. We retain your personal information for only as long as necessary to satisfy legitimate and essential business purposes such as maintaining the performance and availability of our Website and services we provide, complying with legal obligations, and resolving any disputes.
We also implement and maintain appropriate technical and operational controls (including encryption and access control measures) to protect your personal information while it is stored on our systems. However, despite such controls, no system or data transmission is ever completely secure. While we make all reasonable efforts to protect the confidentiality of the personal information we collect about you, we make no guarantees, representations, or warranties with respect to the security of your personal information during storage or transmission.
Can I update, delete, or correct my personal information?
You should be aware that it is not possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our system. The need to back-up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your personal information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. In addition, certain Usage Data that does not contain information that identifies you cannot be deleted or modified at your request since it is impossible to identify and isolate your Usage Data from the Usage Data of others.
