1. The Information XDynamics Collects:
Information You Provide: You may provide to XDynamics what is generally called “personally identifiable” information (such as your name, email address, credit card number, postal mailing address, and telephone numbers) if you use certain services or products from the XDynamics Service, enter contests or sweepstakes, or otherwise use the features and functionality of the XDynamics Service.
“Automatically Collected“ Information: When you access the XDynamics Service (including through your computer or your mobile device) or open one of our HTML emails, we may automatically record certain information from your system by using different types of tracking technology. This “automatically collected“ information may include Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), a unique user ID, version of software installed, system type, the content and pages that you access on the XDynamics Service, and the dates and times that you visit the XDynamics Service.
“Cookies“ Information: When you access the XDynamics Service, we may send one or more cookies, small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters, to your computer. XDynamics may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the XDynamics Service. Persistent cookies can be removed. Please review your web browser “Help” file to learn the best way to modify your cookie settings.
“Pixel Tags“ or “Clear Gifs“: A pixel tag, also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, is an invisible tag placed on certain pages of our XDynamics Service but not on your computer. When you access these pages, pixel tags generate a generic notice of that visit. They usually work in conjunction with cookies, registering when a particular computer visits a particular page. If you turn off cookies the pixel tag will simply detect an anonymous website visit.
Your User ID: It is displayed throughout the XDynamics Service and is therefore available to the public. Other people can see your feedback, ratings and associated comments, etc. Therefore, if you associate your actual name with your User ID, the people to whom you have revealed your name will be able to personally identify your activities on the XDynamics Service.
2. The Way XDynamics Uses Information:
XDynamics uses the information that you provide or that we collect to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the features and services found on the XDynamics Service as well as to track user-generated content and Users to the extent necessary to comply as a service provider with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and other applicable laws.
We may use your email address or mobile number, without further consent, for administrative communications such as notifying you of major XDynamics Service updates, for customer service purposes, and to send privacy or security related notices.
XDynamics uses all of the information that we collect to understand the usage trends and preferences of our Users, to improve the way the XDynamics Service works and looks, to create new features and functionality.
XDynamics may use “Automatically Collected” information and “Cookies” information to: (a) remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you access the XDynamics Service; (b) provide customized third-party advertisements, content and information; (c) monitor and report on the effectiveness of third-party marketing campaigns; (d) monitor and report aggregate usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages accessed; and (e) track your entries, submissions, and status in any promotions or other activities.
3. When XDynamics Discloses Information:
XDynamics does not share your personally identifiable information with other organizations for their marketing or promotional uses without your prior express consent. Please be aware, however, that any personally identifiable information that you voluntarily choose to display on any publicly available portion of the XDynamics Service, such as when you publish your public profile information, becomes publicly available and may be collected and used by others without restriction.
XDynamics may disclose Automatically Collected and other aggregate non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to assist those parties in understanding the usage and demographic patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, or other functionality on the XDynamics Service.
XDynamics may disclose User information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as U.S. copyright or trademark law) or respond to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, or warrant in the manner required by the requesting entity.
4. Your Choices and Access to your Personal Information
You may, of course, decline to share your personally-identifiable information with XDynamics, in which case XDynamics will not be able to provide to you some of the features and functionality found on the XDynamics Service. You may view, update, correct, or delete your user information and preferences by contacting us at email@example.com.
To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you account access or making corrections to your information. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE SECRECY OF YOUR UNIQUE PASSWORD AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION AT ALL TIMES.
XDynamics does not provide your personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent. However, please note that if an advertiser asks XDynamics to show an advertisement to a certain audience or audience segment and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience that they were trying to reach.
6. Our Commitment to Data Security:
XDynamics uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to XDynamics, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, XDynamics makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
If XDynamics learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. XDynamics may post a notice on the XDynamics Service if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach you should notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
7. Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy:
IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE, THEN PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE XDYNAMICS SERVICE AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, XDynamics does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from persons under 13 years-of-age. If XDynamics learns that personally-identifiable information of persons less than 13-years-of-age has been collected on or through the XDynamics Service, then XDynamics will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.
If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a XDynamics Service member, then please contact XDynamics at email@example.com to have that child’s account terminated and information deleted.
8. International Visitors:
For Users visiting the XDynamics Service from the European Union or other non-U.S. territories, please note that any data you enter into the XDynamics Service will be transferred outside the European Union or such other non-U.S. territory for use by XDynamics and its affiliates for any of the purposes described herein. In addition, because XDynamics operates globally, we may make information we gather available to worldwide business units and affiliates. By providing any data on the XDynamics Service, you hereby expressly consent to such transfers of your data to the United States or other countries.
9. In the Event of Merger or Sale:
In the event that XDynamics is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from Users as part of that merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.
10. Third Parties
Except as otherwise expressly provided otherwise, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you or that you disclose to us. If you disclose your information to others besides XDynamics, whether they are users of the XDynamics Service or on other sites or services, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. XDynamics does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable.
