Company only collects personally identifiable information about Members that Company considers necessary for providing Company Services in an effective, efficient, customized, and user-friendly manner, including your name, address, phone number and email address. Company collects payment information (such as credit cards) for similar purposes.
If you are under the age of 18, you may only use our Site in conjunction with and under the supervision of your parents or guardians, and with express permission from Company. For this reason, Company requires that minors do not submit any personal information to Company.
Company does not (and will not) sell or rent any of your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. However, the following describes some of the ways that your personal information may be disclosed in the normal course of business as part of Services provided through the Site:
Advertisers. Company gathers data across numerous registered Member accounts and discloses such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for their marketing and promotional purposes. For such purposes, Company does not disclose any information that we believe could be used to identify Members personally. Company may receive a fee or other benefits for providing such information.
Company’s Site. Although Company undertakes reasonable efforts to prevent it, others may illegally attempt to improperly collect your email address from the Site. If you are involved in a transaction (such as a domain purchase), users may be able to view your email address and obtain your contact and other information to help complete the transaction. Nevertheless, Company undertakes reasonable, preventative measures aimed at curtailing any abuse of this information. Further, Company may send out notices to you or other users regarding suspicious activity or policy violations on the Site.
Affiliates for Our Operations. Company may use third parties (“affiliates”) to facilitate or outsource one or more aspects of the Services that Company provides to you (e.g., advertising provisions, reporting, Commissions payment, upstream service providers, and other services) and therefore Company may provide some of your personally identifiable information directly to these affiliates in a secure manner. Company may or may not hold an ownership interest in these various affiliates. Affiliates are subject to confidentiality agreements with us and other legal restrictions that restrict or prohibit their use of the information Company provides them for any other purpose except to facilitate the specific outsourced service, unless you have explicitly agreed or given your prior permission to them for additional uses. In some instances, the affiliate may collect information directly from you. In these cases, Company will strive to tell you of the involvement of the affiliate, but what information you provide them will be up to you.
Agents and Business Entities. Company shares some of our data, including personal information about you, with Company’s affiliates, subsidiaries, and joint venturers that are committed to serving your online needs and providing related services throughout the world. For example, Company uses a third party company and banking institutions to process Commission payments. These companies do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for purposes other than as related to their service or as otherwise required by law. To the extent that these entities have access to your information, they agreed to treat it in a safe, secure manner. Company’s affiliates, subsidiaries, and joint venturers follow their own privacy practices that may be more or less protective of their users than Company’s practices described in this document. Company, its affiliates, subsidiaries, joint venturers, or any combination of such, will share some or all of your information with another business entity should Company plan to merge with, or be acquired by, or obtain investment funds from that person or entity.
Legal Requests. Company cooperates with law enforcement authorities, as well as with other third parties, to enforce laws, intellectual property rights, and to prevent fraud. Company typically requires a subpoena or similar legal document prior to doing so. In response to a verified request by law enforcement or other government officials relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity, you authorize Company to, disclose your name, city, state, telephone number, email address, login name, access history, IP address, fraud complaints, and site use history, with or without a subpoena. Without restricting Company’s rights to do so as noted above, as a general policy Company will not disclose your personal information to law enforcement or other government officials without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when Company believes in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to protect Company’s rights or to prevent imminent physical harm, financial loss or to report suspected past, present, or future illegal activity. Further, Company can, and you authorize Company to, disclose to a third party your information, including your name, street address, city, state, zip code, country, phone number, email, and company name, as we in our sole discretion believe necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, piracy, or other unlawful activity.
