1. Collection of Information
(a) Active Collection of Personal Information
The Company may collect information you provide in connection with your access to and use of the Site. This includes, but is not limited to, any comments, suggestions, or other information that you provide on, through, or relating to the Site, and/or that relates to the Company’s products or the Company. This also includes records and copies of correspondence, including personal and contact information that you generate if you contact us or provide if you would like us to contact you; responses to surveys that we may ask you to fill out for research and marketing purposes; and your search queries. This information is necessary for the adequate performance of contracts between you and us, if any, to enable us to comply with legal obligations, and given our legitimate interest in being able to provide and improve the functionalities of the Site.
(b) Passive Collection of Information through Tracking Technology
In addition to Google Analytics, we may also use automatically-collected information that helps us to customize the Site to match our users’ individual interests and recognize returning users, estimate the number of website-users and their usage patterns, and increase the speed of our users’ searches. We may use the below tools to collect this data:
- “Pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs,” or similar means (collectively, “Pixel Tags”). We use these small electronic files to compile aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. Pixel Tags allow the Company to count the number of users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver branded services, and to help the Company determine the effectiveness of its promotional or advertising campaigns as well as the effectiveness of the Site itself. When Pixel Tags are used in HTML-formatted email messages, they can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened
- Referrers and your Internet Protocol (IP) Address. Referrers are small files containing information your web browser passes to the Company’s web server that references the URL which you used to access the Site. Your IP address is the number used by computers on the network to identify your computer so that you can receive data.
- Environmental variables. Environmental variables include, but are not limited to, the domain from which you access the Internet, the time you accessed the Site, the type of web browser, operating system, and platform your computer uses, the Internet address of the previous website you visited before entering the Site, the names of the pages you visit while at the Site, and the next Internet website you visit after leaving the Site
(c) Other Sources
To the extent permitted by applicable law, and with your consent as required by applicable law, the Company may receive additional information about you, such as demographic data or fraud detection information, from third-party service providers and/or partners, and combine it with information we have about you. For example, the Company may receive background check results (with your consent where required) or fraud warnings from service providers like identity verification services for our fraud prevention and risk assessment efforts.
2. How We Use and Disclose Information
You understand and agree that the Company may use and/or disclose your information (including your Personal Information) as follows
(a) Your Consent. Where you have provided consent, we may use or share your information, including personal information, as described at the time of consent.
(b) Our Business Purposes. We may use your information for the Company’s everyday business purposes such as to (1) provide products and/or services to you including through our subsidiaries and affiliates, (2) with your consent as required by applicable law, communicate updates, promotions, or news about the Company, its products, or events through email or direct mail, (3) market our products and services, (4) monitor and conduct reviews of the Company’s products and offers, (5) help the Company improve its current products or develop new products, (6) collect demographic and geographic information about the users of the Site and its products, (7) communicate administrative or legislative related information, and (8) fulfill any other purpose for which you provide the information.
(d) Business Transactions. The Company reserves the right to transfer any information collected, including personal information, in the event of a transfer of ownership, assets, securities, or bankruptcy involving the Company and in connection with Company business transactions such as buying or selling subsidiaries or engaging in joint ventures with third parties; provided, however, the Company will use reasonable efforts to notify you before your personal information is transferred.
Where we consider it appropriate, we may notify you about legal requests unless: (i) providing notice is prohibited by the legal process itself, by court order, or by applicable law; or (ii) we believe that providing notice would be futile, ineffective, create a risk of injury or bodily harm to an individual or group, or create or increase a risk of fraud or other liability upon the Company.
(g) Aggregated Data. The Company may share aggregated information (information about our users that we combine together so that it no longer identifies or references an individual user) and other anonymized information for regulatory compliance, industry and market analysis, demographic profiling, marketing and advertising, and other business purposes.
3. Your Responsibilities and Choices
(a) User Generated Content Functions
(b) Accuracy and Confidentiality
It is your responsibility to provide current, complete, truthful, and accurate information, and to keep such information up to date. The Company cannot and will not be responsible for any liability or other problems that may arise from your failure to enter current, complete, truthful, and/or accurate information, or your failure to update such information. You, not the Company, are solely responsible and liable for your activity, behavior, use, and conduct on the Site or any other activity or conduct in connection with the Site. Any submission of information by you does not guarantee that the Company will permit you to use any or all of the features or functions of the Site.
(c) Communication with Users; Opt-Outs; Attempted Fraud
The Company may contact users who have entered personal information in connection with the Site, for example to respond to a question you have asked. If you have agreed to receive marketing and promotional emails from us, you may “opt-out” of receiving such emails by following the opt-out procedure described in each email the Company sends. However, even if you opt-out of receiving marketing and promotional emails, the Company may continue to email you for administrative or legal purposes, including follow-up messages regarding any content you have submitted to the Site.
The Company does not and will not send you emails asking you to provide or confirm sensitive personal information. A technique known as “phishing” attempts to steal personal identity data and financial account credentials from consumers. “Phishers” use “spoofed” emails to lead consumers to sham websites that trick recipients into divulging personal information including credit card numbers, account usernames, passwords, and social insurance numbers. If you receive such an email communication purporting to be from Addyi.com, please forward it immediately to firstname.lastname@example.org and then delete it from your computer.
