We use “cookies” to collect certain information from all users and website visitors. A cookie is a string of data our system sends to your computer and then uses to identify your computer when you return to our Web Site. Cookies give us usage data, like how often you visit, where you go at the site, and what you do.

Our Use of Personally Identifiable Information

We use your Personally Identifiable Information to create your account and to communicate with you. Additionally, we use that information to the extent necessary to enforce our Web Site terms of service and to prevent imminent harm to persons or property.

We use your information, including Personally Identifiable Information, to provide you with customer support, process transactions, respond to users' requests, send newsletters, updates and donor solicitations, seek your opinions and feedback, and connect users to Attic Angel, Inc., websites and/or services, and to products and services of our partners and licensees.

We use user information, including Personally Identifiable Information, behavioral metrics, and other non-personally identifiable information to operate, provide, improve, and maintain our websites and services, to develop new products and services, to prevent abuse and fraud, to personalize and display advertisements and other content for you, and for other administrative and internal business purposes.

We use your information, including Personally Identifiable Information and any other information you submit directly or through passive means, to provide you with various ways to connect and share content (e.g., web content , user generated videos, text, drawings, and screen and lecture captures, and quizzing features, media, tools, services and other products) with third parties. For example, we may provide you with the opportunity to email a link to certain content to another person. To use this feature, we may require you to provide certain Personally Identifiable Information including your email address and the email address of each person to whom you send the link.

We also may allow you to share links to content with users of various third-party services (e.g., social networking, search and sharing services). When sharing links using one of these third party services, if you are not already logged in to the third-party service, you may need to supply login credentials for it. If you are not a registered user of the third-party service, you will need to sign up for it. You are supplying the registration information or login credentials for the third-party service directly to that third party, and not to us. By using any of these third-party services to share links to content, you permit us to access, use, and disclose any information relating to your account on each such third-party service (such as your user name and profile information) that is available to us through the third-party service, including through its application programming interface (“API”) pursuant to this Policy.

We use information gained through cookies to compile statistical information about use of our Web Site, such as the time users spend at the site and the pages they visit most often. Those statistics do not include Personally Identifiable Information.

Protection of Personally Identifiable Information

We take reasonable measures, including the implementation and maintenance of physical, electronic, and managerial procedures, in an effort to assure the security, integrity, and accuracy of all Personally Identifiable Information that we collect. Our efforts include procedures designed to avoid unauthorized access, alteration, misuse or disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information. Unfortunately, even with these measures, we cannot guarantee the security of Personally Identifiable Information. By using our Web Site, you acknowledge and agree that we make no such guarantee, and that you use our Web Site at your own risk.

If we learn of a security systems breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps.

Contractor and Other Third-Party Access to Personally Identifiable Information

We may provide Personally Identifiable Information to third parties for their use in performing internal business functions (e.g., order fulfillment, return authorizations, warehousing, customer service, maintenance, security, data analysis, email transmission, beta testing, or data hosting) on our behalf.  Additionally, some third party service providers may collect information, including Personally Identifiable Information, on our behalf. 

Whenever possible, we require such third-parties to only collect and use Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with this Policy, to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of such Personally Identifiable Information, and for no purpose other than providing us with our requested services.

Disclosure of Information

We also may disclose Personally Identifiable Information to attorneys, collection agencies, or law enforcement authorities to address potential Acceptable Use Policy violations, other contract violations, or illegal behavior.  We may disclose Personally Identifiable Information if we have a good-faith belief that doing so is required by a subpoena, warrant, or other judicial or administrative order or otherwise required by law. Additionally, we may disclose Personally Identifiable Information where we, in good faith, deem it appropriate or necessary to prevent violation of our Terms of Use or our other agreements; take precautions against liability; protect our rights, property, or safety, or those of a partner, any individual or the general public; maintain and protect the security and integrity of our web sites and/or services or infrastructure; protect ourselves and our web sites and/or services from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; investigate and defend ourselves against third party claims or allegations; or assist government regulatory agencies.
