User-Provided Information: You may provide to Passbox what is generally called “personally identifiable” information (such as your name, telephone number, email address, postal mailing address, age, or other demographic information) when using the Passbox Service. There are different ways in which we may collect information when you interact with our Sites, including but not limited to when you:
You may, of course, decline to share certain personally identifiable information with Passbox, in which case Passbox may not be able to provide to you some or all of the features and functionality found on the Passbox Service. You may update, correct, or delete your profile information and preferences at any time by accessing your account preferences page through the Passbox Service. Please note that while your changes are reflected promptly in active user databases, we may retain all information you submit for a variety of purposes, including backups and archiving, prevention of fraud and abuse, and analytics.
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.
The Passbox Service contains links to Web sites and services provided by third parties. Any personally identifiable information you provide on third party sites or services is provided directly to that third party and is subject to that third party’s policies, if any, governing privacy and security. We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of third party sites or services to which links are displayed on the Passbox Service. We encourage you to learn about third parties’ privacy and security policies before providing them with personally identifiable information.
If you are under the age of 16, you may not use or register for the Passbox Service. Further, protecting the privacy of young children is especially important to Passbox. For that reason, Passbox does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from persons under 13 years-of-age, and no part of the Passbox Service is directed to persons under 13. If Passbox learns that personally identifiable information of persons less than 13-years-of-age has been collected on the Passbox Service without verifiable parental consent, then Passbox will take the appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under the age of 13 has obtained an account on the Passbox Service, then you may alert Passbox at email@example.com and request that Passbox delete that child’s personally identifiable information from its systems.
Passbox uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards designed to preserve the integrity and security of your personally identifiable information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Passbox, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, Passbox 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 Passbox learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Passbox may post a notice through the Passbox 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.
The Passbox Service is hosted in the United States and is intended solely for visitors located within the United States. If you nonetheless choose to use the Passbox Service from the European Union or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, then please note that you are transferring your personally identifiable information outside of those regions to the United States and by providing your personally identifiable information on the Passbox Service you consent to that transfer.
In the event that all or a portion of Passbox or its assets are 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 in connection with such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.
