The nature of the activities on the Internet obliges us to collect information from Users. Although this policy is titled “Privacy Policy”, it describes all of the ways in which we use information collected directly or indirectly from our Users, including personally identifiable information that we have collected (“PI”) and others anonymous information (“AI”) (Collectively, “Information”). Information transmitted, collected, processed or otherwise provided to us by Users is not necessarily considered private. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to determine how we treat this information.

Information We Collect & Use of Information

In General

We may use the PI as required or permitted by law, including in response to service of legal proceedings (court order, subpoena, etc.). We may disclose the PI to law enforcement or regulatory authorities as part of an investigation of website activity (such as an alleged violation). We will use commercially reasonable measures to limit the disclosure and use of the PI. We may use the PI in connection with the establishment or defense of legal claims. Any information sent to us will not be considered confidential and may be shared with any other person or entity, whether you mark it confidential or not.

We may also acquire customer information from third parties such as credit reporting agencies, as well as collect information about our customers' use of the Services. This information can be linked to that provided by our customers to create an administrative file and is called “Registration and billing information”.

User Requests

Users who contact us with questions may be required to provide us with additional information to help us resolve their questions, or to assist us in our activities (“Information on User Requests”).

We collect AI regarding your use of the Site, such as computer information (type of browser you have used, your Internet Protocol address, the last URL visited and the date and time of your connection). We send a cookie or “pixel tag” which contains a unique identification number to the computer you are using. You can refuse to provide this information to us and / or refuse cookies in your browser, although some of our Services may not function properly as a result or may be unavailable. We use this information to improve the experience of using the Site, to adapt it to its visitors, to understand how it is used, to investigate and verify good behavior on the Site, and to monitor the security and integrity of the Site.
