- General information
collect it, and what we do with it. When you share information with us, we can make our services
even better for you. For instance, we can show you more relevant search results and ads, help
you connect with people or to make sharing with others quicker and easier.
As you use our
services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can
protect your privacy. This is important; we hope you will take time to read it carefully.
Remember, you can find controls to manage your information and protect your privacy and
security. We’ve tried
to keep it as simple as possible.
- Right to access, correct and delete data and to object to data processing
Our customers have the right to access, correct and delete personal data relating to them, and
to object to the processing of such data, by addressing a written request, at any time. The
Company makes every effort to put in place suitable precautions to safeguard the security and
privacy of personal data, and to prevent it from being altered, corrupted, destroyed or accessed
by unauthorized third parties.
However, the Company does not control each and every risk related
to the use of the Internet, and therefore warns the Site users of the potential risks involved
in the functioning and use of the Internet. The Site may include links to other web sites or
other internet sources. As the Company cannot control these web sites and external sources, the
Company cannot be held responsible for the provision or display of these web sites and external
sources, and may not be held liable for the content, advertising, products, services or any
other material available on or from these web sites or external sources.
- Management of personal data
You can view or edit your personal data online for many of our services. You can also make
choices about our collection and use of your data. How you can access or control your personal
data will depend on which services you use. You can choose whether you wish to receive
promotional communications from our web site by email, SMS, physical mail, and telephone. If you
receive promotional email or SMS messages from us and would like to opt out, you can do so by
following the directions in that message.
You can also make choices about the receipt of
promotional email, telephone calls, and postal mail by visiting and signing into Company
Promotional Communications Manager, which allows you to update contact information, manage
contact preferences, opt out of email subscriptions, and choose whether to share your contact
information with our partners. These choices do not apply to mandatory service communications
that are part of certain web site services.
- Information we collect
Our website collects data to operate effectively and provide you the best experiences with our
services. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you create a personal account.
We get some of it by recording how you interact with our services by, for example, using
technologies like cookies, and receiving error reports or usage data from software running on
your device. We also obtain data from third parties (including other companies).
For example, we
supplement the data we collect by purchasing demographic data from other companies. We also use
services from other companies to help us determine a location based on your IP address in order
to customize certain services to your location. The data we collect depends on the services
and features you use.
- How we use your information
Our web site uses the data we collect for three basic purposes: to operate our business and
provide (including improving and personalizing) the services we offer, to send communications,
including promotional communications, and to display advertising. In carrying out these
purposes, we combine data we collect through the various web site services you use to give you a
more seamless, consistent and personalized experience.
However, to enhance privacy, we have
built in technological and procedural safeguards designed to prevent certain data combinations.
For example, we store data we collect from you when you are unauthenticated (not signed in)
separately from any account information that directly identifies you, such as your name, email
address or phone number.
- Sharing your information
We share your personal data with your consent or as necessary to complete any transaction or
provide any service you have requested or authorized. For example, we share your content with
third parties when you tell us to do so. When you provide payment data to make a purchase, we
will share payment data with banks and other entities that process payment transactions or
provide other financial services, and for fraud prevention and credit risk reduction. In
addition, we share personal data among our controlled affiliates and subsidiaries. We also share
personal data with vendors or agents working on our behalf for the purposes described in this
For example, companies we've hired to provide customer service support or assist in
protecting and securing our systems and services may need access to personal data in order to
provide those functions. In such cases, these companies must abide by our data privacy and
security requirements and are not allowed to use personal data they receive from us for any
other purpose. We may also disclose personal data as part of a corporate transaction such as a
or sale of assets.
