ONLINE PRIVACY POLICY

We at dBase Media, LLC ("Company," “we,” “our,” or “us”) are committed to respecting your online privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection of any personally identifiable information that you may voluntarily share with us, including any information that may be used to identify you personally, such as a first and last name, a home or other physical address, an email address or other non-public contact information ("Personal Information"). In general, when you use our Sites and services you do not need to tell us who you are or reveal any Personal Information about yourself. In an effort to provide you with customized content and enhanced features, we collect general information concerning use of our Sites and services, which may include information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information (“Anonymous Information”). For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Site(s)” includes those websites owned and operated by Company.

This Privacy Policy describes Company’s use of Personal Information and Anonymous Information that we collect when you use our Sites and services. We have adopted and implemented this Privacy Policy as part of our commitment to protecting such information from misuse.

BY USING OUR SITES OR SERVICES OR SUBMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION THROUGH THE SERVICES, YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION ACCORDING TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY.

YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE PROCESSED BY US IN THE COUNTRY WHERE IT WAS COLLECTED AS WELL AS OTHER COUNTRIES (INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES) WHERE LAWS REGARDING PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE LESS STRINGENT THAN THE LAWS IN YOUR COUNTRY.

TO THE EXTENT YOU PROVIDE PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT A NAMED PERSON WHO IS NOT A CURRENT USER OF THE SERVICES, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE THAT PERSON’S CONSENT TO DO SO.

A Note to European Union Users

We adhere to the United States / European Union Data Protection Safe Harbor Arrangement, which can be located at http://www.export.gov/safeharbor (the “Safe Harbor”).

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

Our dBase Registry technology serves a dual purpose, first, as an ad serving platform through which we collect Anonymous Information, and secondly, for lead generation through which we may collect both Anonymous Information and Personal Information that users voluntarily opt-in to provide to us.

We collect information through cookies and log files to understand our users’ preferences and to improve our Sites and services. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s computer tied to information about the user. Some cookies and other technologies may serve to recall Personal Information previously indicated by a Site’s user. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. We may use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. Session ID cookies are automatically deleted when a user closes the browser. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the user’s hard drive for an extended period of time, so that information (like the user’s preferences) can be retrieved from the cookie on the next occasion when the user visits the same Site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions. If you choose to disable cookies, some areas of the Sites and services may not work properly.

We may also enable advertisers and ad servers to promote third party products and/or services by placing advertisements on our Sites. These advertisers and ad servers may use cookies and/or “web beacons” (which are usually small, transparent graphic images) in order to monitor information related to advertisements. Clicking on such advertisements may direct you to the website of a third party or the advertiser. This Privacy Policy does not cover the privacy practices of any third parties, advertisers or their ad servers. We may not have access to this information collected or provided to ad agencies nor will we be able to control the use of this information.

In our log files, we collect information such as Internet protocol (“IP”) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and clickstream patterns. Log file information may be linked to your Personal Information, and by using any Site or service, you agree that you are voluntarily providing that information to us, authorizing such linking, and opting-in to permit us to use and disclose such information as Personal Information to the extent that we are otherwise authorized to use and disclose Personal Information. Our use of cookies and other tracking technologies allows us to improve our Sites and services. We may also analyze information that does not contain Personal Information for trends and statistics.

Our Sites and services may contain forms through which we collect and maintain information submitted voluntarily by users, such as, but not limited to, registration forms, customer support surveys or other informational surveys. For example, we may use this information to tailor the visitor’s experience by showing them content that we feel may be of interest to them and may meet their personal preferences. Users of these forms accept full responsibility for the legitimacy of any information provided to us. However, we do not require you to provide such information to us. By providing such information voluntarily, you give us permission to use such information as described in this Privacy Policy. We also collect Personal Information voluntarily provided by you in the course of correspondence or registration or as otherwise identified below.

In order to use certain aspects of our services, you may be required to complete the applicable registration form accessible on the site. However, some services may not require registration. Our registration process requires you to provide your first name, last name and email address, among other information. We may also request optional information to support your use of the services, including but not limited to your postal address, phone number, date of birth, zip code, and country of residence. We collect and maintain a record of all data provided through such registration forms. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but this may limit the features of our services you are able to use.

We sometimes collect information on behalf of, and from the websites of, our business partners. That information is treated in accordance with the privacy policies of our business partners and this Privacy Policy does not apply to such information.

We do not intentionally collect or maintain Personal Information from those who are under 13 years old. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. Thus, if we obtain knowledge that a user is under 13, we will take steps to remove that user's Personal Information from our databases.

Information From Other Sources

We may receive and verify Personal Information about you from other sources like telephone, email or fax, from third parties that provide services for us in connection with our own services, as well as from third parties to whom you have voluntarily provided information or additional public records. We may add this information to the information we have already collected from you via our services. This Privacy Policy does not restrict our use of that additional information.

USE AND DISCLOSURE OF COLLECTED INFORMATION

Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we do not trade, rent, or share the Personal Information that we collect with third parties, unless you ask or authorize us to do so.

In general, Personal Information you submit to us is used by us to provide the services to you, respond to requests that you make, to improve the Sites and services, and to offer you additional information, opportunities, promotions and functionality from us, our partners or our advertisers. We may also use your Personal Information to provide you with updates about the Sites and/or services or send promotional information, should you request to receive such communications from us, our partners and other third parties.

We may provide your Personal Information to third party service providers who work on behalf of or with us to provide some of the services and features of the Sites and to help us communicate with you. Examples of such services include sending email, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, and providing customer service. We require our third party service providers to agree to treat the information in a manner consistent with our Privacy Policy.

If you provide feedback to us, we may use and disclose such feedback for any purpose, provided we will not disclose your Personal Information in connection with that feedback. We will collect any information contained in such communication and will treat the Personal Information in such communication in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We may create Anonymous Information records from Personal Information by excluding information (such as your name) that would otherwise makes the Anonymous Information personally identifiable to you. This Privacy Policy does not limit our use or disclosure of any Anonymous Information in any way, and we reserve the right to use and disclose Anonymous Information to our partners, advertisers and other third parties in our discretion. For example, we may share Anonymous Information related to a specific cookie or web beacon to enable advertisers or ad servers to display relevant ads, based on the content viewed in connection with that cookie or web beacon.

Although we currently do not have a parent company, any subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under a common control, we may in the future, and we may share some or all of your Personal Information with these companies, in which case we will require them to honor this Privacy Policy.

In the event Company goes through a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your Personal Information may be among the assets transferred. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and are permitted by this Privacy Policy, and that any acquirer of Company or its assets may continue to process your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

We may disclose your Personal Information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; or (b) to protect and defend the rights or property of Company, you, or third parties. You hereby consent to Company sharing your Personal Information under the circumstances described herein.

CHOICES REGARDING PERSONAL INFORMATION

If you no longer wish to receive promotional communications from us via email or if you wish to have your Personal Information removed from our databases, simply contact us at optout@dbasemedia.com and provide the name of the service for which information was provided, your full name, mailing address, phone number and email address so that we may identify you in the opt-out process. Within a reasonable time after we receive your request, we will cease those communications or remove the Personal Information. Please note that even though you may request deletion of your Personal Information by us, we may be required (by law or otherwise) to keep this information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements). When we delete Personal Information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives.

We do not maintain responsibility for the manner in which third parties, including advertisers, our partners and third party service providers, use or further disclose Personal Information collected from you in accordance with this Privacy Policy, after we have disclosed such information to those third parties. If you do not want Company to use or disclose Personal Information collected about you in the manners identified in this Privacy Policy, you may not use the Site or any service. If you are merely a visitor to the Site and have not registered for any service, please note that Company does not collect any Personal Information unless you voluntarily provide the same, so you do not need to opt-out regarding any such communications or disclosures. We encourage users to refer to third-party privacy policies regarding third-party use of such information. In addition, if you voluntarily disclose information about yourself to third parties, that information may be collected and used by others. This may result in you receiving unsolicited communications from others. If you voluntarily disclose personal information about yourself to third parties, we will not be able to prevent others from viewing, collecting or using this information.

Our Sites and communications from us may contain links to other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other websites. We encourage our users to read the privacy statements of each and every website they visit. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by us through our Sites and services. The ability to access information from third parties from our Sites, or links to other websites or locations, is for your convenience and does not signify our endorsement of such third parties, other websites, locations or their contents.

ACCESS TO PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM YOU

Company has put in place commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the Personal Information we collect. However, no company, including us, can fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide security for information in our possession and control, we bear no liability for uses or disclosures of Personal Information arising in connection with the theft thereof. Likewise, any user who registers for services is responsible for safeguarding the confidentiality of passwords, and we bear no liability for access to, or use or disclosure of, Personal Information, if such access, use or disclosure arises in connection with the theft or disclosure (whether intentional or negligent) of a password.

This Privacy Policy is a living document. We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, in which case we will post the changes to the Sites and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what Personal Information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If you do not consent to the changes, you must cease using our Sites and services.
