If you choose to use these functionalities, plugins, widgets, or tools, certain information may be shared with or collected by those social media companies—for more information about what information is shared or collected, and how it is used, see the applicable social media company's privacy policy.

 

 (d) law enforcement agencies, public authorities, or other judicial bodies and organizations. We disclose information when legally required to do so, or if we believe in good faith that such use is reasonably necessary to:

 

    i.  comply with a legal obligation, process, or request;

As part of these transactions, user information may be shared, or transferred, and it may be subsequently used by a third part.

 

We respect your privacy and we will not transfer or convey your personal data to any third party, unless as part of a legitimate business transaction as described in this Section 4. We may disclose data and aggregate statistics about users of our Services and sales to prospective partners, advertisers, sponsors and other reputable third parties in order to describe our Services, deliver targeted advertisements or for other lawful purposes, but these data and statistics will be anonymized and shall not include information which can be used to identify you.

 

5. THE SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

 

We are committed to maintaining the privacy and integrity of your personal data no matter where it is stored. We have information security and access policies that limit access to our systems and technology. We also protect data through the use of technological protection measures such as encryption. Your personal data will remain subject to our technical and organizational controls and our policies and procedures (including this Privacy Policy). We also follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information transmitted to us over the Internet, both during transmission and once we receive it. Sensitive information (such as credit card numbers) may be encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

 

Despite our best efforts, you should note that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

 

It is important that you also protect yourself against unauthorized access of your Account and information by choosing your password carefully (in accordance with our requirements for nominating a password such as minimum number of characters, special characters, and capitalizations.)  and keeping your password and Account secure (e.g. by signing out after using our Services).

 

6. DATA RETENTION
