Information We Share
We may use third party vendors and service providers for a variety of business purposes to help us offer, provide, and bill for services and products we provide. We may share your information with third-party vendors and service providers when it is necessary for them to perform work on our behalf. We do not sell, rent, or lease your information to third-parties.
Third-Party Links and Websites
By using the Website you understand and agree that we may access, monitor, use, or disclose information that you provide, or your communications with us, to comply with a search warrant, subpoena, or court order; to respond to emergencies; to enforce an agreement with you; to protect our rights or property, or the rights or property of our agents, vendors, service providers, members, and customers; or in the case of a corporate sale, merger, dissolution, or acquisition.
Information Security and Data Retention
We have technical, physical, and administrative safeguards in place to help protect against unauthorized access to, use, and disclosure of the information that we collect or store, including your contact and payment information. Our employees are trained on the importance of protecting privacy. Under our practices and policies, access to sensitive information that could be used to identify you as an individual is authorized only for those who have a business need for such access, and sensitive information is retained only as long as necessary for business, accounting, tax, or legal purposes.
Although we work hard to protect personal information that we collect and store, no program is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee that the safeguards we have in place will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use, or disclose your personal information. If you become aware of a security issue, please contact us at email@example.com. We will work with you to address any problems.
Your Choices & Controls
You have control over the information that you receive from us. If at any time you want to opt out of any email or other correspondence that you receive from us, you may do so directly by following the opt-out instructions that we have included in our email correspondence. If you wish to change, update, or delete information that you have provided to us for any reason, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make those changes.
Protecting the privacy of the young (i.e., individuals under the age of 13) is especially important. For that reason, we never knowingly collect personally identifying information from anyone under the age of 13 and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13. If a child has provided us with personal information, we ask that a parent or guardian of the child contact us at email@example.com if they would like the information submitted by a child deleted from our database.
