Your Privacy Rights
The iissee.com sites are websites under IISSEE’s control. The iissee.com sites may include an on-line search service, business listings and advertisements, an email-forwarding service, a listing of promotional deals, activities and events, various blog postings, and news, weather and community information. Through our email-forwarding service, we also allow you to communicate with businesses who have listings on our sites without the businesses directly seeing your email address.
In order to access iissee.com sites, you will be asked to sign in with an email address and password that we refer to as your User ID. In association with your User ID, you will be asked for personal information such as the month and year of your birthdate, your name, home or work address, and telephone number. You are asked to create a profile that may include additional demographic information such as your interests and activities, your gender and age, your occupation, and other information. In your profile, we may also ask for additional information, such as your credit card information and billing address that may be used for purchases.
Protect your personal information by never providing social security, credit card, or bank account numbers to other parties without appropriate assurances.
You must be 13 years of age, or older, to visit or use the iissee.com sites in any manner, and if under the age of 18 (or the age of majority as that is defined in your jurisdiction), you must use iissee.com sites under the supervision of a parent, legal guardian, or other responsible adult.
If any of iissee.com sites deal with information not specifically mentioned in this Policy, then such information is not covered by this Policy. For example, this Policy does not cover data that we collect offline, on businesses or legal entities, on our employees, or through other third-party sites.
Information You Provide To Us and That We Collect
We always ask for your username and password (or that you are already logged in) before you use iissee.com sites. Therefore your use of iissee.com sites is never completely anonymous. As detailed below, however, you may interact with businesses using our email forwarding service so that the business will only receive limited information about you.
We collect and store any personal information you enter on iissee.com sites or provide to us in some other manner, including through surveys conducted on iissee.com sites. We also may connect other information with your account such as user ratings and reviews, and saved business and event listings.
We may periodically obtain both personal and non-personal information about other people that your use of iissee.com sites provides to us. If you use iissee.com sites to send others (e.g., friends, relatives, colleagues) information that may interest them or messages (such as invitations) through our system, we may store your personal information, and the personal information of each such recipient.
Unless we otherwise described a situation about gathering information from you in this Policy, it should be obvious to you that you are providing information to us.
We use “cookies” (small pieces of data stored for an extended period of time on your computer, mobile phone, or other device) and other technologies to collect information. We use various technologies to collect information from your computer and about your activities on iissee.com sites. Through the use of a cookie, we may automatically collect information about your online activity on iissee.com sites, such as the web pages you visit, the links you click, and the searches you conduct on iissee.com sites. Most browsers (i.e., the computer program that you use to access the Internet) automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you choose to decline cookies, please note that you may not be able to sign in or use some of the interactive features offered on iissee.com sites.
We automatically collect information from your browser when you visit iissee.com sites. This information includes your IP address, your browser type and language, access times, the content of any undeleted cookies that your browser previously accepted from us, and the referring website address.
We may use standard Internet technology, such as web beacons and other similar technologies, to track your use of iissee.com sites. We also may include web beacons in promotional or other email messages, RSS feeds, or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. The information that we obtain in this manner enables us to customize the services we offer iissee.com visitors to deliver relevant information and to measure the overall effectiveness of our online content, programming and other activities.
We collect additional information about your interaction with iissee.com sites without identifying you as an individual. We may use certain analytical tools with iissee.com sites to retrieve information from your browser, including the site you came from, the search engine(s) and the keywords you use to find iissee.com sites, the pages you view within iissee.com sites, your browser add-ons, and your browser’s width and height.
When you send email or other communications to us, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services.
Information You Provide Others Through iissee.com Sites
Even when using our email forwarding system, or posting using an email forwarding address, please realize by sharing information, such as your opinions, and facts about your workplace and yourself, that others may use such information to identify you despite your emailing or posting only limited information.
We may allow third-parties, including but not limited to our authorized service providers and advertisers, to display advertisements or provide applications and services on iissee.com sites. These companies may use tracking technologies, such as cookies or web beacons, to collect information about users who view or interact with their content or advertisements or use their applications and services. Such companies often use such information to measure the effectiveness of their ads, and to personalize advertising content. IISSEE does not provide any personal information to these third parties. The information they independently collect allows them to deliver targeted content and personalized online experiences and gauge their effectiveness. You may use your browser cookie settings to limit or prevent the placement of cookies by advertising networks.
If you do not want us to store metadata associated with content that you share on iissee.com sites (such as photos), please remove the metadata before uploading the content.
Businesses on iissee.com sites will often have their own privacy policies and you should be familiar with those policies as well.
Situations In Which We Share Your Information With Others
We share your information with third parties if we believe the sharing is permitted by you, reasonably necessary to offer our services, or when legally required to do so. We highly regard your privacy, and will not share your information except as detailed here.
We may share your personal information with our authorized service providers that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include processing credit card payments, delivering packages, providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business and sales analysis, supporting our website functionality, and supporting contests, sweepstakes, surveys and other features offered through iissee.com sites. These service providers may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but they are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purposes.
When you make purchases, reservations, or engage in promotions offered through iissee.com sites, we may share personal information with the businesses with which we partner to offer you those products, services, promotions, contests, and sweepstakes. When you elect to engage in a particular merchant’s offer or program, you authorize us to provide your email address and other information to that merchant.
We do not currently sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. We retain the right, however, to change such policy at our discretion.
We may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires the response. We may also share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent threats against our web services, property damage, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, courts, or other government entities.
How We Use Your Information
In order to offer you a more relevant, consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with us, we may combine information from various sources. We may also supplement the information we collect with information obtained from other companies. For example, we may use services from other companies that enable us to derive information in order to better customize services offered to you, provide you with a better experience, and improve the quality of our services.
We use your information to offer our services and features to you, to measure and improve those services and features, and to supply you with customer support. We may contact you with service-related announcements from time to time.
We look to detect and address anomalous activity that is an abuse of our system, or illegal. These efforts may on occasion result in a temporary or permanent suspension, or termination of some functions for some users.
Again, your web browser or client software may transmit certain geographic information, or information regarding your choices while on our websites. We may use this information, and other information that you provide us, to generate aggregate statistics about our user community, and may provide such information to advertisers and our partners. In addition, we may use such information for site security or system integrity (such as the prevention of hacking, bots, spiders, etc.).
We use this information to make predictions about your characteristics, interests or preferences and to display targeted advertisements that we believe may be of interest to you. We may also associate this information with your subsequent visit, purchase or other activity on participating advertisers’ websites in order to determine the effectiveness of the advertisements.
We may monitor use of the products and services on iissee.com sites, and use such information for internal business purposes, or in accordance with the rules of any applicable regulatory, or self-regulatory organization. We reserve the right to offer third party services and products to you based on the preferences that you identify, and such offers may be made by us, or by third parties.
As a convenience to you, IISSEE may provide links on iissee.com sites to websites operated by other persons and entities.
At any time you can choose to no longer receive commercial or promotional emails or newsletters from us by logging in with your account information, clicking on the “My Account” link (under the “Account” tab), then the “Edit My Account”, then un-checking the “Email Me” box. You also will have the opportunity, in any commercial email that we send to you, to opt out of receiving such messages in the future. It may take up to 10 days for us to process an opt-out request. We may send you other types of transactional and relationship email communications, such as service announcements, administrative notices, and surveys, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. Please note that you will need to opt out of third-party-originated emails directly with those third parties.
Security of Data
IISSEE makes no representation regarding the security of iissee.com sites, including with respect to the ability of unauthorized persons to intercept or access information transmitted by you through iissee.com sites.
We take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, only authorized employees are permitted to access personal information, and they may do so only for permitted business functions. In addition, we use firewalls to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your personal information.
We want you to be confident using iissee.com sites to transact business, however, no system can by completely secure. Therefore, again, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, searches, or other communications will always remain secure. You should also take care with how you handle and disclose your personal information and avoid sending personal information through non-secure email. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s website at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/menus/consumer/data.shtm for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft.
We store and process your information on computers located in the United States that are protected by physical as well as technological security devices. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number or password) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone, you should always log out before leaving iissee.com sites to protect access to your information.
When we at times need to share your information with trusted partners, we seek to have all relationships covered by confidentiality requirements.
We make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate businesses purposes. We ask you to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes). Because of the way we backup our systems, after you delete your information, residual copies may take a period of time before they are deleted from our active servers and may remain on our backup systems.
If you ever remove information from your profile, or modify your postings, copies of that information may still remain accessible through third-party platforms through the use of caches, or other methods.
