Sharing information with affiliates and other third parties
We do not sell or rent your PII to third parties for marketing purposes. However, we may use your nonpersonal information for data aggregation purposes, which might be sold to other parties at our discretion. Any such data aggregation would not contain any of your PII. We may provide your PII to affiliates and third parties that provide services with regards to our Mobile App such as payment processors, content and software providers, promotional service providers, shipping companies, and other service providers. We also share your information with third parties by using an Application Program Interface “API.” Such third parties may include but are not limited to Facebook.com, Twitter.com, YouTube.com, and Google.com. This sharing of information helps us provide you with a better experience when using our Mobile App and Services. It also provides us with useful information such as visitor traffic.
Legally required releases of information
We may be legally required to disclose your PII if such disclosure is (a) required by subpoena, law, or other legal process; (b) necessary to assist law enforcement officials or government enforcement agencies; (c) necessary to investigate violations of or otherwise enforce our Legal Terms; (d) necessary to protect us from legal action or claims from third parties, including you and/or other members; (e) necessary to protect the legal rights, personal/real property, or personal safety of our company, users, employees, and affiliates.

Protecting the privacy rights of third parties
If any postings you make to our Mobile App contain information about third parties, you need to make sure that you have permission to include them in your posting. While we are not legally liable for the actions of our users, we will remove any postings for which we are notified that such postings violate the privacy rights of others.
Retaining and Destroying Your Personal Information
We retain information we collect from you (including PII) for only as long as we need such information for legal, business, or tax purposes. Your information may be retained in electronic form, paper form, or a combination of both. When your information is no longer needed, we will destroy, delete, or erase it.

You can always opt-out of future unaffiliated third-party disclosures of your information.

Protecting Children’s Privacy
We follow the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Even though our Mobile App is not designed for use by anyone under the age of 13 (child), we realize that a child may attempt to access our Mobile App. We do not knowingly collect PII from a child under the age of 13. If you are a parent or guardian and believe that your child is using our Mobile App, please contact us. We may ask for proof of identification before we remove any information to prevent malicious removal of account information. If we discover on our own that a child is accessing our Mobile App, we will delete the information. You acknowledge that we do not verify the age of our users nor have any liability to do so.
Our Security Policy
We have taken steps to build our Mobile App using industry-standard encryption and authentication tools to protect the security of your PII. When we collect your PII through our Mobile App, we will encrypt your PII before it travels over the Internet using industry-standard technology for conducting secure online transactions. Unfortunately, we cannot fully guarantee secure data transmission over the Internet because of its nature.
Once we receive your PII, we have security measures in place to protect against the loss or misuse of your PII, though again we cannot fully guarantee against such loss or misuse. We strongly urge you to protect any password you may have for our Mobile App and not share it with anyone. You should always log out of our Mobile App when you finish using it, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place.
International Data Transfers
Information that we collect may be stored and processed in and transferred between any of the countries in which we operate in order to enable us to use the information in accordance with this policy. Personal information that you publish in our Mobile App, or submit for publication in our Mobile App, may be available via the Internet around the world. We cannot prevent the use or misuse of such information by others. You hereby agree to the transfers of personal information described within this section.
