COLLECTION AND USE OF NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
DISCLOSURE TO THIRD PARTIES
The Site may include functionality that allows certain kinds of interactions between the Site and a third-party web site, platform, tool, application or other service, and accessing or display of third-party content via the Site (“Associated Third–Party Services”). The use of Associated Third–Party Services may involve the third-party operator thereof (“Third–Party Operator”) providing certain information, including personal information, to us. For example, you may be able to access our Site via a third party platform, site, or other service, and those Third-Party Operators may collect personal information and other data about you in connection therewith, and may provide some or all of it to us (e.g., the third party may handle the billing of transactions for our products that are purchased via the Third Party Service and then tell us what you purchased so we can fulfill the order.
When you use Associated Third-Party Services, you are using their services and not our services and they, not we, are responsible for their practices. You should review the applicable third-party privacy policies before using such Associated Third-Party Services in connection with our Site.
We also may disclose any information that we possess about you (including your identity) if we determine that such disclosure is necessary for connection with any investigation or complaint regarding your use of the Site, or to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, or the rights or property of visitors to or users of the Site, including our customers. We reserve the right at all times to disclose any information that we deem necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request. We also may disclose your information when we determine that applicable law requires or permits such disclosure, including exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection purposes, or if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce any of our terms or policies or to protect us or other Site users. Additionally, in the event that we undergo a corporate reorganization, merger, or sale, we may transfer any and all personal information and non-personal information that we collect to any third party involved in such transaction.
PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
The transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure, and we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our Site; any such transmission is at your own risk. We encourage you to always use caution when using the Internet. However, we take precautions – including administrative, technical, and physical measures – to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
E-mail Security: “Phishing” is a scam designed to steal your personal information. If you receive an e-mail that looks like it is from us asking you for your personal information, do not respond. We will never request your credit card information via email.
COOKIES AND TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
Customers may have the ability to have their personal computer warn them each time a cookie is set, or turn off cookies through their browser. Each browser is different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of your browser settings or tools. Turning cookies off may interfere with the normal functionality of the site.
Some information about your use of the Service and certain third-party services may be collected using Tracking Technologies across time and services and used by us and third parties for purposes such as to associate different devices you use, and deliver relevant and retargeted ads (“Interest-based Ads”) and/or other content to you on the Service and certain third-party services. You may have certain choices regarding these activities as explained in the next section.
To modify your e-mail subscription, please unsubscribe from e-mails via the unsubscribe link in each e-mail. Please note that your opt-out is limited to the e-mail address used and will not affect subsequent subscriptions. If you opt-out of only certain communications, other subscriptions may continue. Even if you opt out of receiving promotional communications, we may, subject to applicable law, continue to send you non-promotional communications, such as those about your transactions, servicing, or Power Crunch’s ongoing business relations.
Tracking Technologies and Do Not Track Signals
Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit. Note, however, we currently do not alter our practices when we receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser. Some third parties, however, may also offer you choices regarding their Tracking Technologies. One way to potentially identify cookies on our Site is to add the free Ghostery plug-in to your browser (www.ghostery.com), which according to Ghostery will display for you traditional, browser-based cookies associated with the web sites you visit and privacy and opt-out policies and options of the parties operating those cookies. We are not responsible for the completeness or accuracy of this tool or third-party choice notices or mechanisms.
Certain companies we share your personal information with may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA“) AdChoices Program and may display an Advertising Option Icon for Interest-based Ads that links to an opt-out tool which allows you to exercise certain choices regarding targeting. You can learn more about the DAA AdChoices Program at http://www.youradchoices.com/. In addition, certain advertising networks and exchanges may participate in the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). NAI has developed a tool that allows consumers to opt out of certain Interest-based Ads delivered by NAI members’ ad networks. To learn more about opting out of such targeted advertising or to use the NAI tool, see http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Please be aware that, even if you are able to opt out of certain kinds of Interest-based Ads, you will continue to receive non-targeted ads. Further, opting out of one or more NAI or DAA members only means that those selected members should no longer under the DAA / NAI rules deliver certain targeted ads to you. This will affect this and other services, but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g., from other ad networks). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit this opt-out page, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different device or web browser(s), or use a non-browser-based method of access, your NAI / DAA browser-based opt-out may not, or may no longer, be effective. Mobile device opt-outs will not affect browser-based Interest-based Ads even on the same device, and you must opt-out separately for each device. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third-parties’ opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs. However, we support the ad industry’s 2009 Self-regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising (https://www.iab.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/ven-principles-07-01-09.pdf) and expects that ad networks we directly engages to serve you Interest-based Ads will do so as well, though we cannot guaranty their compliance.
YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
We may from time to time elect to share certain “personal information” (as defined by California’s “Shine The Light” law) about you with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents who have supplied personal information, as defined in the statute, to us to, under certain circumstances, to request and obtain certain information regarding our disclosure, if any, of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If this applies, you may obtain the categories of personal information shared and the names and addresses of all third parties that received personal information for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately prior calendar year (e.g. requests made in 2018 will receive information about 2017 sharing activities). To make such a request, please provide sufficient information for us to determine if this applies to you, attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response. You may make this request by contacting us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing at:
