2. Collection of Information
We may collect Personal Information in connection with our Services. When we use the term “Personal Information” we are referring to information that can be used to identify an individual and may include, but is not limited to, first and last name, email address, corporate address, business name, business telephone number, and any other personally identifying information you choose to transmit to us through the Services (including any such information that you include in a “Job Opportunity” that you post on the Services).
“Personal Information” also includes any credit card or debit card or other financial account information you may provide to us or to our third-party payment application provider for billing purposes. However, we send billing and payment information, including any credit card, debit card, or bank account information, through third-party payment and billing systems and do not store any such information on our servers.
Examples of non-Personal Information we collect are:
2. Use of Personal Information
3. Disclosure of Personal Information
We may also disclose your Personal Information to third parties when we believe, in good faith and in our sole discretion, that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) enforce or apply the terms and conditions of the Services, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (b) comply with legal or regulatory requirements or an enforceable governmental request, (c) protect the rights, property or safety of The Patent Box, our users or other third parties, (d) prevent a crime or protect national security, or (e) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
Please also note that the Services may link or integrate with third-party sites, services or apps. We are not responsible for the privacy or security policies or practices or the content of such third parties. Accordingly, we encourage you to review the privacy and security policies and terms of service of those third parties so that you understand how those websites collect, use, share and protect your information.
4. Accessing and Updating Personal Information
We make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your Personal Information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests. We will not charge you for any Personal Information access and correction services, except where doing so would require a disproportionate effort.
You can opt out of receiving marketing e-mails from us by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in the e-mails. Please note that it may take up to ten (10) business days for your opt-out request to be processed. Also, even if you opt out of marketing e-mails, we may continue to send you certain account-related e-mails, such as notices about your account and confirmations of transactions you have requested.
Please e-mail us at email@example.com with any questions if you need assistance accessing, changing or deleting your Personal Information. If you request that we delete your Personal Information, please understand that we may need to retain it for a limited period of time to satisfy our legal, audit and/or dispute resolution requirements.
5. Cookies and Automatic Information Gathering Technologies
Cookies may be prevented by activating the function that is available in most web browsers that enables the user to deny or accept cookies. Recognize, however, that cookies may be necessary in order to provide certain features of the Services, such as the customized delivery of information.
At this time, the Services do not respond to “do not track” signals that may be sent from your browser.
We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from users under the age of 18. Nor do we authorize users under 18 years of age to use the Services. If we learn from an individual under the age of 18 or from the individual’s parent or legal guardian that we have collected Personal Information about such an individual, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to delete their Personal Information from our systems.
8. Information Security
We utilize reasonable information security measures to safeguard your Personal Information. For example, we store your passwords in encrypted form, and we use SSL encryption in connection with pages where we collect payment-related information in connection with our third party payment gateway service providers. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet and no method of data storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its security.
9. Your California Privacy Rights
A California resident who has provided personal information to a business with whom he/she has established a business relationship for personal, family, or household purposes (“California Customer”) is entitled to request information about whether the business has disclosed Personal Information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. We will not share Personal Information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure. To prevent disclosure of your Personal Information for use in direct marketing by a third party for its own purposes, do not opt in to or authorize any such use when you provide Personal Information on our Services or when signing up for our e-mail list.
California Customers may request further information about our compliance with California’s privacy law by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that we are only required to respond to one request per customer each year, and we are not required to respond to requests made by means other than through this e-mail address.
