As a convenience to you, we may provide links to third-party Services from within our Sites or Services. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these third-party sites.
Security of your Personal Information
It is possible at times when passively collecting non-personally identifiable information through automatic means that we may unintentionally collect or receive personally identifiable information that is mixed in with the non-personally identifiable information. While we will make reasonable efforts to prevent such incidental data collection, the possibility still exists. If you believe that we have inadvertently collected your personal information, please notify us at email@example.com.
The security of your personally identifiable information is very important to us. When we collect this information online, we use reasonable efforts to protect it from unauthorized access. However, due to the inherent open nature of the internet, we cannot guarantee that your personally identifiable information will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers and your use of our Sites and Services demonstrates your assumption of this risk. We have incorporated standard industry practices internally to safeguard the information we collect.
How Do We Share Personal Information?
Personal information actively provided to us is available to us and the technical and fulfillment agents, partners, licensees, and consultants who make our Sites and Services available to you.
Any firms, consultants, licensees, agencies, partners, or third parties who assist us in making our Sites and Services available may have access to personally identifiable information. All companies working for and with us must comply with our privacy policies and are not permitted to sell your information to third parties or to use it except as authorized by us and you, or as permitted or required by law.
We reserve the right to use or disclose any information without notice or consent for the following purposes: as needed to satisfy any law, regulation, or legal request; to conduct legal or consumer complaint investigations or possible breaches of law; to protect the integrity of our Sites and our property; to protect the safety of our visitors or others; to fulfill your requests and for any other purpose we deem necessary or advisable in our sole discretion.

Be aware that personally identifiable information which you voluntarily include and transmit online on the Sites and Services or in a publicly accessible blog, chat room, social media platform or otherwise online, or that you share in an open forum such as an in-person panel or survey, may be viewed and used by others without any restrictions.

Protection for Children
We do not target our Sites or Services to children under the age of 13 and do not intentionally collect personally identifiable information from persons under the age of 13. If at any time in the future we plan to collect personally identifiable information from persons under 13, such collection and use, to the extent applicable, shall, when required, be done in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and appropriate consent from the child’s parent or guardian will be sought where required by COPPA. When we become aware that personally identifiable information from a child under 13 has been collected without such child’s parent or guardian’s consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.
