We review our Policy regularly and occasionally we may need to make changes or additions to the Policy that may affect how we handle your data.

INFORMATION COLLECTED
We collect, process, and use all data and/or information about you and your account (collectively ”Personal Data”) in accordance with the laws and statutes on data protection in the U.S.

We use Personal Data solely to provide you with the Services. We will never rent, sell, or otherwise provide Personal Data to any third party for advertising or for marketing purposes. We use Personal Data to provide you with the Services such as for billing, identification and authentication purposes; to analyze the Site usage for statistical purposes; to manage and improve our products and the Site; to deliver administrative and informative notices and communications relevant to your use of the Services; for troubleshooting problems; for detecting, protecting against and preventing fraudulent or other criminal activity; for distribution to our third party service providers ("TSPs") (such as our technology server and payment gateway operator) who are bound by our privacy restrictions or restrictions at least as restrictive as those set forth in this Policy; to enforce our Terms & Conditions.

You acknowledge and agree that any of your Personal Data which is necessary for purchasing any of the Services will be transferred to our TSPs involved in the execution of the debiting procedure (e.g. payment gateway operator, credit card acquirer and the bank issuing the credit/debit card).

When you apply for membership to our Site and Services and during your membership term, we will collect some Personal Data from you, such as your name, email address, resident address, location, occupation, photos and other data you upload or enter into your profile. This Personal Data is entered by you during the application process.

We may also collect data about your navigation of the Site on an aggregate basis, such as your Internet Protocol Address ("IP Address"), which is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you navigate the Site, your Internet Service Provider ("ISP"), your login frequency, the pages you visited within the Site, and the Internet browser or device you are using.

When you participate in the Services such as registering for an event, or participating in campaigns or surveys, we may require that you submit certain Personal Data to the Site. You may also voluntarily provide Personal Data when you send us an inquiry or support request email.

If you choose to invite other women to join from your personal network, the names and email addresses of the invitees need to be entered on the Site. The names and email addresses of the women that are invited will be used by us only to send your invitation email (including an optional personal message). We store this information to send the invitation email, to register a contact connection if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our Invite Friends program.

Surveys are periodically conducted to collect information to help us improve the Site. All information collected through surveys will remain confidential and anonymous, even if we use a third party to help us conduct the survey, unless otherwise indicated.

Any material you disclose on the Blog section of the Site is viewable to the public. Please use caution when disclosing Personal Data on the Blog.

COOKIES
Cookies & Other Storage Technologies
The use of cookies and similar technologies is a common internet practice. Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are useful in a number of ways, including allowing a website that you use to recognize your device, keep track of pages visited and even remember your preferences. In this Policy, we refer to all of these technologies as "cookies".

We use cookies if you have a member account or use the Services (whether or not you are a member or logged in).

Why do we use cookies?
Cookies help us provide, protect and improve the Services, such as by personalizing content and providing a safer experience. While the cookies that we use may change from time-to-time as we improve and update the Services, they generally are for site features and services; security, site and product integrity; analysis and performance.

Site features and services
We use cookies to verify your account and determine when you're logged in so we can make it easier for you to access the Services and show you the appropriate experience and features.

Functionality cookies enable you to move around the Site and use its features, including accessing secure areas of the Site and storing your preferences. Without these cookies, the Services cannot be provided. We also use cookies to help provide you with content relevant to your Chapter.

Security, site and product integrity
We use cookies to help us keep your Personal Data and the Services safe and secure.

Cookies help us identify and impose additional security measures when someone may be attempting to access a member account without authorization, for instance, by rapidly guessing different passwords. We also use cookies to store information that allows us to recover your account in the circumstance that you forget your password or to require additional authentication if you tell us your account has been jeopardized.

We also use cookies to combat activity that degrades our ability to provide the Services, such as spam and phishing attacks.

Analysis and performance
We use cookies to improve how the Site works and provide you with a better experience.

Cookies help collect information about how someone uses a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from any web pages. These cookies don't collect information that identifies a particular individual visitor, as the information is aggregated only.

Cookies also help us route traffic between servers and understand how quickly the Site loads for different people, and help us record the ratio and dimensions of the user's screen and windows.

How can users manage cookies?
You may be able to control your acceptance of cookies and similar technologies on a website, and most devices and browsers offer their own privacy settings for cookies. You will need to manage your cookie settings for each device and browser you use.

If you do not accept cookies, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of the Site, such as the Site not being able to recognize your device and requiring you to provide additional information each time you log on.

You can find additional information on cookies and similar technologies used on various websites through your browser or other internet resources.

DATA RETENTION
We restrict access to information about you to entities affiliated with us and to those employees and TSPs who need to know that information in order to provide requested products and services to you. We will not disclose your Personal Data to any other source, except when authorized by you or when we believe in good faith that we are required to do so by law or in order to protect our rights or property.

We may disclose your Personal Data:

  • if we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your Personal Data to the [prospective] seller or buyer of such business or assets; or
  • if we are under a duty to disclose or share your Personal Data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our Terms & Conditions and other agreements or to protect our rights, property, or safety of our customers or others.

 

When you submit information to the Site, it is collected, processed and maintained solely by us or by our third party contractors, those third party contractors being bound by our Privacy Policy or by restrictions at least as restrictive as those set forth in this policy.

OPTING IN OR OUT OF COMMUNICATIONS
On certain occasions, we will send emails to communicate important corporate or member messages, such as changes in our Policy, event or payment receipts, or notices of your membership term. These emails will not have an unsubscribe feature, as they are one-time only communications.

OTHER SITES
We are not responsible for the privacy policies or the content of websites we link to and have no control over the use or protection of information provided by you or collected by those websites. Whenever you choose to link to another website, you may be asked to provide registration or other personal information.
