Similarly, your interaction with the social plugin may be recorded by the third party. Please refer to the third-party’s privacy policy to find out more about its data practices, such as what data is collected about you and how the third-party uses such data.

  1. How your information is used.We use the information you provide to provide the applicable Services to you, either directly or through third party service providers, to provide you with more customized services (i.e., to personalize your experience and to help us to better respond to your individual needs), to improve the Website and the Application (noting that we continually strive to improve the Website and the Application based on the information and feedback that we receive from our Users), and this information also may be viewable by others (for example, in your personal profile). Company may also share certain aggregated data with other third parties for general marketing and demographic purposes (such as to send to you marketing, advertising, promotional messages and other information that may be of interest to you, including information about us, our services, or general promotion of partner campaigns and services); however, this data does not include any of your personal identifying information. Some of our Services may be offered in conjunction with other Users (such as event organizers), partner companies, affiliates or other companies or websites with which we work. In order for us to provide these Services to you, it may be necessary for us to share your personal information with one of such entities. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these Services. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular Service.


Credit card information may be collected when you register to become a member and/or if you use certain of our Services that require payment of a fee, yet we do not retain your credit card information on our servers. Credit card numbers are used only for processing payment and are not used for other purposes. Payment processing services are provided by third-party payment services, and a management company external to Company may provide support for these financial activities. We may share your personal information with these partners, subject to contractual confidentiality requirements intended to protect your information, to facilitate these financial transaction.


In addition, Company may disclose account or other personal information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with Company’s rights or property, other Website or Application users or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

  1. Altering Information You Submit.

(a) Deleting your information. Federal and state regulations may require that we store questions or submissions for various periods of time. In order to comply with these regulations, we may be unable to delete information from our databases for certain periods of time, and perhaps indefinitely.

(b) Altering Information. Company may alter, modify or delete any information you submit to the Website or through the Application if it believes, in its sole discretion, it is necessary or desirable to do so.

(c) Request to stop receiving emails from us. Periodically, Company may send you emails to alert you to various opportunities or offers available at the Website or within the Application. If you do not wish to receive any of these offers, please send an e-mail to Successfully Encoded to remove yourself from our mailing list.



Company uses extensive and sophisticated, secure, industry-standard technology to protect your data and transmissions between you and Company. Although Company has taken these reasonable and appropriate measures to ensure that your personal information is delivered and disclosed only in accordance with your instructions, Company cannot and does not guarantee that the personal information you provide will not be intercepted by others and decrypted. It is your responsibility to protect the security and integrity of your account details, including your username and password. Please note that emails, instant messaging and similar means of communication with other Users may not be encrypted, so you should not communicate any confidential information through these means (and should not have any expectation of privacy if you do).

Given the international scope of Company’s activities, personal information may be visible to persons outside your country of residence, including to persons in countries that your own country’s privacy laws and regulations deem deficient in ensuring an adequate level of protection for such information. If you are unsure whether this Privacy Policy is in conflict with applicable local rules, you should not submit your information. If you are located within the European Union, you should note that your information will be transferred to the United States, which is deemed by the European Union to have inadequate data protection. Nevertheless, in accordance with local laws implementing the European Union Privacy Directive on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, individuals located in countries outside of the United States of America who submit personal information do thereby consent to the general use of such information as provided in this Privacy Policy and to its transfer to and/or storage in the United States of America. By utilizing the Site and/or directly providing personal information to us, you hereby agree to and acknowledge your understanding of the terms of this Privacy Policy, and consent to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States and/or in other jurisdictions as determined by us, notwithstanding your country of origin, or country, state and/or province of residence.

Changes to Privacy Policy

The process of maintaining a website is an evolving one, and we may decide at some point in the future to modify our Privacy Policy by posting a new Privacy Policy on the Website or within the Application. If we make a change to our Privacy Policy in the future that will affect how we treat your information, we will post such change at the Website and/or within the Application, and such change will be deemed to be effective 2 days from the date of such posting (or a shorter time if required by law). In that case, your ability to opt out of the new policy will be determined by applicable laws. Please review the changes carefully.  If you agree to the new terms, simply continue to use the Website and/or the Application.  If you object to any of the changes to the Privacy Policy, please do not continue to access or use either the Website or the Application, as your continued access or use of the Website and/or the Application after we have posted an updated Privacy Policy shall constitute your consent to the changes.

Business Transfer

We may, in the future, sell or otherwise transfer some or all of our assets or equity to a third party. Your personally identifiable information and other information we obtain from you via the Website or the Application may be disclosed to any potential or actual third party purchasers of such assets or equity and may be among the assets transferred.

If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not provide us with any information and do not use the Website or the Application. By using the Website or the Application and/or voluntarily providing information which will pass through the Website and/or Application, you consent to our collection and use of the information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.
