DealBinder uses generally accepted tools and techniques to protect your personal data against unauthorized disclosure. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We may change this Policy at any time as needed to accurately reflect how we gather and manage your data. We will post updated versions of the Policy on the Site without any other notice to you and changes will be effective immediately upon posting. By continuing to use our Site and services, you signify your agreement to the Policy. We encourage you to review the Policy periodically so that you are aware of how the information you provide will be used. This Policy is effective as of January 28, 2016.
Use of Personal Information
We collect personally identifiable information, like names, titles, postal addresses, email addresses, etc., when submitted by our visitors. We use the information we gather and track to improve the Site and make it more valuable and responsive to you. We may use the personal data we collect:
- To verify your identity when accessing information only appropriate for you.
- To send requested information faster by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter your contact information.
- For billing and collection purposes.
- To provide you with information, goods and/or services, newsletters and special offers that you have requested or which may be of interest to you.
- To contact you in connection with support-related activities.
- To contact you in the event that we have announcements regarding the Site or its features or to highlight information on the Site that is of particular interest to you.
- To better understand how users access and use our Site, both on an aggregated and individualized basis, in order to improve our Site and respond to user desires and preferences, and for other research and analytical purposes.
- To fulfill any other purpose for which you provided it.
We do not sell or offer your personally identifiable information to third parties for marketing or other purposes. We will not release your personal information to nonaffiliated parties except: (1) as necessary for us to provide the product or service you have requested of us; or (2) as permitted or required by law. In some instances, we may be obligated to disclose certain information pursuant to a court order, subpoena, search warrant or law enforcement request. We may also share information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when: (1) permitted or required by law; (2) trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorized transactions; or (3) investigating fraud which has already taken place.
DealBinder may, from time to time, collect and distribute aggregate demographic information about our visitors and users. This aggregate information summarizes interests and does not reveal the identities or interests of any individual user. We also gather aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our Site. This information allows us to better tailor our content to users’ needs and understand the demographics of our users.
User Submitted Content
In using our Site and services, you may be permitted to type, input, upload, post, display and/or publish (“post”) information, documents, or other materials (collectively, “User Content”). For example, you may add your own notes to your user dashboard on the Site.
DealBinder relies upon third party providers to operate various features of the Site and to store data, including User Content. To the extent that such providers are used to store or have access to personal information data or User Content, we believe that such providers meet commercially reasonable security standards.
However, by using the Site and our services, including your posting of any User Content through the Site, you acknowledge your understanding that no data security measures can guarantee 100% security. You further acknowledge and agree that DealBinder will have no responsibility for, and expressly disclaims any and all liability relating to or in connection with any User Content, including but not limited to Customer’s input or use thereof. You are solely responsible for any applicable vertical or industry-specific compliance (e.g., HIPAA, confidentiality requirements) with respect to any User Content or other information you release or input into your user dashboard or other areas of the Site. All User Content submitted from your account shall be deemed to have been submitted by you. DealBinder reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to remove without notice, or refuse to post, any User Content.
We may need your permission to allow our third party providers and us to do things such as storing, accessing and processing your personal information and User Content, including for our own testing, debugging and ongoing development purposes. By posting User Content, you grant all such permissions.
We take reasonable precautions, including, where appropriate, password protection, encryption, SSL, and internal restrictions on who may access data to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security and no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free.
In particular, email sent to or from this Site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us. Moreover, where you use passwords, user names, or other special access features on this Site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them. You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
Third Party Links
For your convenience, our Site and services may contain links to third party websites not affiliated with DealBinder. Any access to and use of such linked websites is not governed by this Policy, but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third party websites. While we try to link to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the information practices of such third party websites and can make no promises or guarantees regarding personal data collection or privacy practices on websites that are not owned or operated by DealBinder.
We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13 and we do not target our websites to children under 13. If we determine that an individual under the age of 13 has submitted information to this site, we will delete that information.
