We know these privacy policies can be tedious to get through. However, by continuing to use our Online Services (as defined below), you agree to let us use your personal information in the ways discussed in this Policy. For this reason, it would greatly benefit you to read this entire Policy.
This Policy applies to the online services owned by us, including our website, social media accounts, and any future online services we develop (the “Online Services”).
We love supporting our partners, and to show our appreciation, we may provide links to their websites and services. When you click on one of these links, you are leaving our Online Services, and this Policy no longer applies. The way our partners or other third parties that we do not own do business is out of our hands, and we assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party website or service. Additionally, when you are using any other third-party platform to interact with our Online Services (e.g., Google, Instagram, or Facebook), you agree to comply with their service policies, and this Policy is in addition to, not in place of, such agreements.
“Personal Information” is any information that may allow for an individual to be personally identified. For example, your name, e-mail address, social security number, phone number, residential address, and credit card details are all considered Personal Information. Other information, such as your interests, economic status, customer number, IP address, geolocation, education, and job title may also be considered Personal Information if that information, when combined with other information, is used to reveal your identity.
We only collect Personal Information from you when you voluntarily agree to us collecting and using it. You voluntarily agree to us collecting and using your Personal Information by:
There may be times where a password is required to access certain accounts, such as when you interact via our social media platforms. These passwords are completely administered by the third-party vendor/platform, and we do not have access to your passwords.
Cookies are small files that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your browser when you use and interact with our Online Services.
You can learn more about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org.
We NEVER collect your Personal Information for the purpose of selling, renting, trading, or otherwise abusing it. We only use your Personal Information for our legitimate business purposes, including, but not limited to, the following reasons:
Although we try to limit who we share your Personal Information with, there are situations where sharing is necessary for our legitimate business purposes. We may share your Personal Information with third parties in the following ways:
We only keep your Personal Information for as long as necessary to provide our Online Services and in accordance with our legal obligations. Depending on your residency, under the law (e.g., the California Consumer Privacy Act and General Data Protection Regulation), you may also have the right to request at any time for us to:
Regardless of whether we are obligated under the law or not, if you would like us to do any of the above, you can contact us using the information provided at the end of this Policy. We will make best efforts to try to fulfill your requests. However, sometimes we may be required to retain your Personal Information in order to comply with our administrative, legal, and/or regulatory obligations. For example, we may be required to keep a history of transactions to report our taxes or may need to retain some Personal Information for law enforcement purposes (e.g., fraud monitoring, detection, and prevention). Additionally, we reserve the right to de-identify your data by removing identifying details rather than delete it completely.
We are a business that is formed and operated in the United States. However, in addition to storing Personal Information directly onto our hard drives, we also may use some third-party cloud storage systems and apps to ensure that your Personal Information is not lost. These third parties may store and transfer your information outside of the United States. In certain situations, the courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies, or security authorities in those countries might be entitled to access your Personal Information.
We always use our best efforts to pick reputable third-party software, platforms, services, and apps. However, we do not control such third parties and are not liable for any breach of privacy or data security that occurs due to the fault of these third parties.
We are committed to protecting your Personal Information and have physical, electronic, and managerial systems and procedures in place to help safeguard your Personal Information. Unfortunately, no system can guarantee complete security. Third-party viruses or security failures may result in your Personal Information being compromised. You can help prevent unauthorized access to your Personal Information by using antivirus software, creating strong passwords, and limiting access to your personal computer. In the unlikely event that your Personal Information is compromised due to a security breach on our end, we will notify you, in accordance with the law, as soon as reasonably possible.
Our Online Services are not targeted or intended to be used by people under the age of 18. All children between the ages of 13 – 17 must have permission from their parent or guardian before accessing our Online Services. If you live outside of the United States, your country may apply stricter age limits. In some cases, even if you are older than 13, you may not be legally allowed to access our Online Services regardless of having parental permission. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13 and delete such Personal Information as soon as we become aware of it.
We may modify this Policy from time to time. The date at the top of this Policy lets you know when this Policy was last revised. It is important to check back here occasionally to make sure you have read the latest policy. By continuing to access or use our Online Services after the policy changes, you allow us to use your Personal Information in the way we describe in our updated policy.
We will always try to resolve your concerns about our privacy practices promptly and hope that together we can find a solution without involving costly legal channels. However, if we cannot come to an agreement, by using our Online Services, you agree to binding arbitration, rather than formal court proceedings, to have the matter resolved. You can read more about this process in our ToU. THE DISPUTE RESOLUTION TERMS IN OUR TOU MATERIALLY AFFECT YOUR ABILITY TO BRING A LAWSUIT AGAINST US. PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY.
This Policy and our ToU represent the entire and exclusive agreement between our users and us. All previous written and oral agreements and communications related to the subject matter of this Policy and our ToU are superseded.
Thank you for your patience in getting through all of the necessary legal language in this document! We have tried to be as clear as possible in communicating our expectations regarding our Online Services. However, if you have any questions about this Policy, our ToU, or our Online Services in general, please reach out! We would be more than happy to explain.
