Information About You
Information You Provide.
You supply basic information when you register for the Site: your
name, e-mail address, your city, country and zipcode, your profession,
and the username and
password you select. Later, we may request further information when
you seek to use certain areas of the Site (the specific information
depends on the particular area). You can use parts of the Site without
providing any personal information (or even registering), but you
won't be able to take full advantage of what the Site can offer you
and your business.
You also supply
personally-identifiable information in other ways. A few examples are
when you: customize your account, fill out an order form or survey,
communicate with our Customer Satisfaction team, and so on.
Minors. The Site is
not targeted to users under eighteen (18) years of age. If you are
under 18, please do not register for the Site or provide any
information about yourself on the Site.
Information We Collect.
We may also collect information based on your use of the Site. For
example, when you use the Site, we may collect your IP address,
operating system, and browser version used for that visit. We may also
use "cookies" -- small text files placed on your computer's
hard drive. These cookies don't contain any personal information,
except for your name and username if you've registered so we can
personalize your visit. Only ClientChecker can access a cookie that we
place. You don't need to have your browser accept cookies to use the
Site generally, but you won't be able to use certain areas of the Site
if you don't.
Cookies we place serve
several purposes: 1) to recognize you when you return to the Site, and
as you move within the Site, which lets us customize your visit and
offer convenience; 2) to authenticate you as a Site user, necessary
for security; 3) to better understand how our users use the Site,
which helps us make the Site more useful for you.
How We Use Information
We may use personally
identifiable information in a number of ways:
· To communicate with you about your account, or to
communicate information about the Site. For example, we will
occasionally send members important notices or information via e-mail.
· To personalize various aspects of the Site.
· To build higher-quality, more useful services, such as
by analyzing usage trends, and by measuring demographics and interests
regarding specific areas of the Site.
· To provide you with prompt and effective customer
· To support the operation of the Site (such as billing,
account maintenance, and record-keeping), troubleshoot problems,
resolve disputes, and enforce our Terms
· To send you newsletters, promotional messages, product
announcements, and other communications from ClientChecker that we
feel may be of interest to you. You may "opt out" of
receiving most of these materials, as described below.
We may disclose personally identifiable information about you to Third Parties as
· With your consent.
· As is inherent in the operation of a Site feature you
use. For example, your username or handle may appear publicly when you
submit a post to a discussion board after logging in if you do not
choose to make the posting anonymous.
· To our contractors and consultants, and our professional
advisors (such as our accountants or attorneys). For example, we
outsource certain "back end" processes, such as credit card
processing. We only disclose the personal information necessary for
them to provide their services to you or to us, and only under strict
other credit bureaus. When you provide payment data about your
clients, we forward this on to other credit bureaus along with your
details. The credit bureaus generally keep this information
anonymous. In the event that a client company questions their
credit rating, the credit bureau has the ability to go back to the
source of the payment data for clarification.
· As we believe necessary to: (a) comply with law
(including court and governmental orders, and civil subpoenas); (b)
enforce or apply our TOS and other agreements; or (c) protect the
rights, property, or safety of ClientChecker, our users, or others.
This may include exchanging information with other companies and
organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
· If you partake (or we reasonably suspect that you are
partaking) in any illegal or potentially illegal activity. We may
disclose personal information even without a subpoena, warrant, or
other court order, to the extent we feel is necessary to inform, and
cooperate with, law enforcement agencies or other appropriate
· In connection with a sale or transfer of ClientChecker.
If ClientChecker or substantially all of its assets are acquired, user
information will of course be one of the acquired assets.
· In aggregated form, i.e., information about multiple
users collectively without identifying any individual user, such as
the total number of visitors to one of the Site's sections in a given
· Due to circumstances beyond our control. Despite the
stringent precautions we take to protect your personal information
(see Security of Your
Personal Information, below), the unfortunate fact is
that there is simply no such thing as a perfect security system. Also,
we have no control over the Internet in general. As a result, even
though the risk is extremely low, we cannot guarantee that
unauthorized persons will never gain access to private transmissions
or information, or that private information will never be disclosed in
