Effective May 10, 2016
How We Use Information. We use collected information to make available and to improve our high standard of reliable service. We use such information to: respond to inquiries or service requests and monitor such responses; provide information about and market our products or services; resolve problems; and manage the Site, the Applications and assess their usage and usage of the products and services.
Personally identifiable information gathered during your interactions with the Application, such how you answer particular questions and other usage data may be aggregated with similar data from other users and may be used to benchmark and analyze user trends and to generate aggregate statistical data concerning motivation, performance, and other similar subjects.
We may use data gathered during your interactions with the products and services to provide the products and services to you and, if applicable, your team or sponsor. In addition, we may use data gathered during your interactions with us in order to provide our products and service to other customers, for benchmarking purposes, improvements to products and services, and creation of aggregated data so long in the course of such actions we do not disclose your data to third parties or disclose you as the source of the data (it being understood we can use subcontractors for that purpose so long as they are similarly limited). Further, nothing herein limits our use of aggregated non-personally identifiable information to the full extent permitted by applicable law, including without limitation for benchmarking, improvements to products and services, or marketing.
Disclosure of Information. We do not sell or rent personally identifiable information to third parties who are not affiliates of the Company, except as described here. We may disclose personally identifiable information to appropriate affiliates of the Company, including strategic alliance affiliates and third party service providers, to respond to a request for service or to provide information about available products or services. And we may disclose information we collect to Related Users, and to assess trends and knowledge regarding the subject matter of surveys we incorporate into our Site, Applications and products and services. We are not limited in our use of non-personal information that does not permit direct association with any specific individual, or non-identifiable aggregate information about our users (such as the number of users of our products, the geographic distribution of our users, the amount of information located and/or removed, etc.). We disclose information that we, in good faith, believe is appropriate to cooperate in investigations of fraud or other illegal activity, or to conduct investigations of violations of our User Agreement. For example, this means that if we conduct a fraud investigation and conclude that one side has engaged in deceptive practices, we can give that person or entity’s contact information to victims who request it. In addition, we reserve the right to disclose aggregate information and personally identifiable information to third parties as required or permitted by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights. We disclose information in response to a subpoena, warrant, court order, levy, attachment, order of a court-appointed receiver or other comparable legal process, including subpoenas from private parties in a civil action. If the subpoena seeks information about an identified user or limited group of users, we’ll make reasonable business efforts to contact the user(s) before providing information to the party that requests it. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to contact the user(s) in all cases, whether because of a time limit, court order, inability to effectively contact a user, or for any other reason. We may disclose information to your agent or legal representative (such as the holder of a power of attorney that you grant, or a guardian appointed for you).We share information with companies that provide public relations and marketing services for us. Such information will only be shared by us to customize, measure and improve our products and services and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes. These third parties are obligated to protect your information and are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose. As with any other business, it is possible that in the future we could merge with or be acquired by another company. If such an acquisition occurs, the successor company would have access to the information maintained by us, including customer account information, but would continue to be bound by this Policy unless and until it is amended. We share your information with our parent, subsidiaries and joint ventures to help coordinate the products and services we provide to you, enforce our terms and conditions, and promote trust and safety. We share your information with our parent, subsidiaries and joint ventures to help coordinate the Products we provide to you, enforce our terms and conditions, and promote trust and safety. We may share aggregate (non-personally identifiable) information with certain third parties such as advertisers, national industry organizations, and prospective affiliates.
