INFORMATION ABOUT YOU WE COLLECT
When you visit our Website, we may collect two types of information about you: (1) information that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis, including personally identifiable information and (2) general user information that is automatically collected on an aggregate basis as you use or browse the Website. In some cases, if you choose not to provide us with requested information, you may not be able to access all of our Website’s content or services.
Information You Choose to Provide.
We may ask for certain personal information from you for the purpose of providing to you content and/or services that you request. For example, you provide us your name and email address when you create an account through our Website. As another example, if you indicate an interest in receiving newsletter samples from AgencyEquity.com, you may be asked to submit your name, address, phone number and/or other contact details, which we retain on file, so that we may send you the information that you requested. We also request your name and email address each time you contact us by clicking on the “Contact Us” link. We may retain a record of users who have
contacted us in order to respond properly to questions or concerns and for purposes of future communications.
You may also provide information to be published or displayed on the Website or transmitted to other users, such as in business listings. Such information is posted on the Website and transmitted to other users at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users of our Website with whom you may choose to share your information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your information will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.
Information We Automatically Collect.
Similar to other commercial websites, our Website utilizes “cookies” and other tracking technologies to collect information about how our Website is used and for marketing purposes. A cookie is a small piece of data that is stored on the device you use to interact with our Website to help websites remember things about you. Information gathered through cookies and other tracking technologies may include information such as the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Website, and the websites visited before and after our Website.
Other cookies we use are strictly necessary to enable us to provide our Website and services to you (such as cookies that provide your log-in status when your account is linked to functionality on our Website).
You can, of course, disable cookies on your computer or other device in most browsers by indicating this in the preferences or options menus in your browser. However, it is possible that some parts of our Website will not operate correctly if you disable cookies. You should consult with your browser’s provider if you have any questions regarding disabling cookies.
HOW WE USE AND SHARE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We use your information to present the Website and its contents to you and to provide you with the services, information or content that you have requested. We may use your information to provide you notices about your account or any purchases you have made through our Website, and to carry out our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us, including for billing and collection.
We may use your information to contact you about our or our clients’ and other business partners’ programs, products, features or services, such as in marketing emails. We may also sell or otherwise share your information for valuable consideration, such as your email address, to our clients or other third parties so that they can market their programs, products, features or services to you. For example, if you express interest in a third party product or service by clicking on a link or taking some other action in response to marketing of that product or service, we may sell your email address to that third party.
If you no longer wish to receive press releases, marketing emails or any other type of promotional information from us, you may send us an email through our “Contact Us” link or, if applicable, use the “unsubscribe” button or other similar opt out functionality in the email or other message you received from us. Please be aware that your ability to opt out from receiving marketing and promotional materials does not change our right to contact you regarding your use of our Website or services.
We use information collected through cookies and other tracking technologies, such as Google remarketing, to display or communicate targeted advertising that may be relevant to your preferences. We may share your information with third party advertisers or other members who may contact you with offers or other promotional information.
We use information collected on our Website in the aggregate to better understand our users’ use of the Website and to enhance our users’ enjoyment and experience. For example, we may use the information to improve the design and content of our Website or to analyze the programs and services that we offer.
We may provide access to your personally identifiable information when legally required to do so, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Website, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights, or to protect the rights and safety of visitors to this Website or the public. In those instances, the information is provided only for that limited purpose.
We may disclose your information to a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of the Company’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by us about our users is among the assets transferred.
We may also use your information in any other way we may describe when you provide the information or otherwise for any other purpose with your consent.
We will not share your personally identifiable information in ways unrelated to those described above without providing you with an opportunity to opt out of such use or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
MODIFYING, UPDATING AND/OR DELETING YOUR INFORMATION
If you visit our Website and volunteer personally identifiable information, you may modify, update or delete such information at any time through your account. If that option is not available to you for the information you wish to modify, update or delete, you can send us an email with your request. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases.
“DO NOT TRACK” SIGNALS
We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the personally identifiable information that we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as installing electronic security systems that guard against unauthorized access. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where you have chosen a password for your account, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We also urge you to be careful about giving out information in areas of the Website accessible by other users.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us or post on or through the Website, so you do so at your own risk.
