Nextag, Inc. - Website Privacy Statement/Your California Privacy Rights
Effective October 30, 2014
Some services referenced in this Privacy Statement are not available on some Websites. Portions of this Website Privacy Statement that pertain to such features or services may not be applicable on each of the Websites.
This Privacy Statement applies to all "users", including those who visit the Websites without being registered. This Website Privacy Statement is effective as of the date listed above. Even if you read and/or agreed to a prior privacy statement, you need to review this updated version. We reserve the right to revise this Website Privacy Statement at any time and at our discretion, as described in this paragraph. If we decide to change our Website Privacy Statement, we will post those changes to this Website Privacy Statement accessible on the homepages of the Websites, and other places we deem appropriate. If, however, we are going to use users' personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify users via either email or by posting a notice on the Websites for 30 days, prior to such use taking effect.
PEOPLE UNDER 18 YEARS OLD
Our Websites are not intended for use by people under eighteen (18) years of age. If you are under 18, please do not send any information to us. By accessing Websites or using our services, you represent that you are 18 years of age or older.
2.1 Information Submitted by You: You are not required to provide information about yourself when you visit our Websites but you may elect to do so, such as to take advantage of certain services or features. Examples of situations where you may submit information include:
2.2 Automatically Collected Information: Examples of information that may be automatically collected include:
2.3 Information Supplied by Third Parties: We may receive information about you or your use of our or others' websites from other sources, including through the placement of our cookie or similar technology on third party merchant, partner and advertising sites. For example, we may receive product search or purchase information from merchants whose sites you visit after clicking on a product listing on our Website, updated or corrected contact information from third party vendors, credit or related information as part of vendors' fraud detection services (but only with users or merchant's permission to do so), or contact, demographic and other profile information through your interaction with us through social networking accounts, such as Facebook and Twitter (for example, by adding us as a friend on Facebook, following our Twitter account, or engaging in Facebook's "Like" feature). We also may receive or collect similar information from co-branded partners' sites that you visit.
2.4 Combining Information: We may combine the information that we receive about you from different sources. For example, information about your use of one of our Websites may be combined with information about your use of a different Website or a co-branded partners' site.
We may use the information that we collect or receive to create a user profile in connection with your account. A profile is stored information that we keep on individual users that detail their viewing preferences, activities and interactions. We may augment the information that you provide to us with information that we collect about you or information from third parties, as described in this Privacy Statement.
The information that we receive about you, including profile information, allows us to provide a number of different services across the Websites and on other sites or applications. For example, we may use:
In addition to the uses described above, we may use your personally identifiable information for any of the following:
Publicly Available Information: Certain information that you provide, such as your lists, is publicly available unless you choose to make it private. You may control the information that is publicly available by signing into your account and adjusting your settings. Additionally, if you choose to activate the setting, some Websites allow you to publish your activity or interactions with our Websites to your social networking account.
Aggregated Information: We aggregate personal information into statistics about users, their usage of the Websites, traffic patterns, and demographics. We may provide third parties, including merchants, partners and advertisers with such statistics, but never in a way that would make the information personally identifiable. This data is aggregated from millions of users who visit the Websites each month.
Anonymous Information: We may provide your anonymous use and browsing information, including the search queries that you enter or products that you view on our site, to third parties, which may include allowing merchants, partners and advertisers, to place cookies and/or web beacons on the Websites and/or clear gifs in our HTML emails to allow third parties to optimize and/or provide you with advertisements that are tailored to your interests.
Merchants and Partners: If you click from the Websites to visit a merchant or other partner, we may provide information about your use of the Websites, such as your search queries, to the merchant or partner, to allow them to provide results that are more tailored to your interests.
Service Providers: We may use external service providers to facilitate, improve or outsource elements of our service or operation of the Websites, including processing credit card transactions, sending emails, and providing marketing assistance or analysis. We may provide your information to, or exchange your information with, these service providers for use in their provision of services to us, such as fraud protection and credit risk reduction or marketing analysis. These external service providers may have access to personally identifiable information needed to perform their functions or services to us, but may not use it for other purposes.
Business Transfer and Affiliates: We may share your information with companies that are affiliated with us, that is, are our direct or indirect subsidiaries or parent or sister companies. As we continue to develop our business we might buy or sell companies, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information is generally one of the transferred assets but remains subject to the provisions of any pre-existing privacy statement. In the event that we or substantially all of our assets are acquired, your information may be one of the transferred assets and we may share or assign it with an actual or potential acquirer.
Other Trusted Parties: We may provide your contact information and other personal data to trusted third parties so they may provide information to you on products and services that may be of interest to you.
Advertisers: We may share information with advertisers as described in the Interest-Based Advertising section below.
Registered users can review, update, amend, delete/remove personally identifiable information by signing in using your member name or email address and password, and in some cases, logging in through your social networking account, and then clicking on your "Account" or "Profile" link. Notwithstanding any request from you, we may retain a record of your information that is necessary to comply with applicable law or as necessary to manage your account. To view or change your preferences regarding your use of the Websites and our use of that information, including for the purpose of providing you with advertisements that may be of interest to you, please click here. For access and changes of any other data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or the address listed in Section 11 "Contact Us". Upon receipt of your request, which may be subject to identification verification, we will comply with appropriate data correction requests in accordance with applicable law. For access requests, we will respond within thirty (30) days upon receiving your request.
You should also note that if we have provided your information to third parties or if you have allowed third parties to access information through our Websites (such as by publishing your activity and interaction with our Websites to your social networking account, such as Facebook), you will have to make a separate request to them directly if you want to have your information removed from, or corrected in, their databases.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
