DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
We do not share personally identifiable information to third parties who are not affiliates of the Company, except as described here. We may disclose personally identifiable information to appropriate affiliates of the Company, including strategic alliance affiliates and third party service providers, to respond to a request for service or to provide information about available products or services. We are not limited in our use of non-personal information that does not permit direct association with any specific individual, or non-identifiable aggregate information about our users (such as the number of users of our Product, the geographic distribution of our users, the amount of information located and/or removed, etc.).
We disclose information that we, in good faith, believe is appropriate to cooperate in investigations of fraud or other illegal activity, or to conduct investigations of violations of our TOS. For example, this means that if we conduct a fraud investigation and conclude that one side has engaged in deceptive practices, we can give that person or entity's contact information to victims who request it. In addition, we reserve the right to disclose aggregate information and personally identifiable information to third parties as required or permitted by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights.
We disclose information in response to a subpoena, warrant, court order, levy, attachment, order of a court-appointed receiver or other comparable legal process ("Legal Request"), including Legal Requests from private parties in a civil action, and in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
If the Legal Request seeks information about an identified user or limited group of users, we'll make reasonable business efforts to contact the user(s) before providing information to the party that requests it. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to contact the user(s) in all cases, whether because of a time limit, court order, inability to effectively contact a user, or for any other reason. We may disclose information to an individual's agent or legal representative (such as the holder of a power of attorney that an individual grants, or a guardian appointed for an individual).
We share information with companies that provide public relations and marketing services for us. Such information will only be shared by us to customize, measure and improve our products, services and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes. These third parties are obligated to protect information under equivalent terms to this Policy and are prohibited from using personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
As with any other business, it is possible that in the future we could merge with or be acquired by another company. If such an acquisition occurs, the successor company would have access to the information maintained by us, including customer account information, but would continue to be bound by this Policy unless and until it is amended.
We share information with our parent, subsidiaries and joint ventures to help coordinate the Product we provide, enforce our terms and conditions, and promote trust and safety. We may share aggregate truly anonymized (non-personally identifiable) information with certain third parties such as advertisers, national industry organizations, and prospective affiliates.
We follow commercially accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect personal information, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee its absolute security. In the event of an inadvertent disclosure of personal information we will take all commercially reasonable steps to limit and remedy the disclosure as required by the applicable law. If individuals have any questions about security regarding our Product, they can contact us at email@example.com.
RIGHT OF OPT-OUT, ACCESS AND CORRECTION
We provide individuals the opportunity to "opt-out" of having their personally identifiable information collected by us. In addition, European data protection legislation gives individuals the right to access personally identifiable information held about them. Individuals may ensure that such information is accurate and relevant for the purposes for which we collected it. Individuals may review their own information and correct or remove any information that is incorrect, as permitted by applicable law. To request opt-out, review, modification or removal of personal data, you should submit a written request to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
