Your Use of the Site
In order to offer the services for which you will use the Site or Services, your user ID may necessarily be displayed throughout the Site and Services and to the public. All of your activities on the Site and Services will be traceable to your user ID. Notices are sent to other community members regarding suspicious activity and policy violations and refer to user IDs and specific items. Please understand that if you link your name with your user ID, others will be able to personally identify your activities.
Web Site Features
In addition, the Site or Services may incorporate pixel tags, web beacons or other web site usage measurement technologies. Such devices are used to collect non-personally identifiable information, such as the identity of the applicable internet service provider, the user's IP address of his or her personal computer, the type of browser software and operating system in use, the date and time of site access, the website address, if any, from which the user linked, and other similar traffic-related information. Such information is used for the purposes described above. We may also aggregate such information with similar data collected from other users or disclose such information to third parties. However, we do not use such data in any way to create or maintain personally identifiable information from you.
Despite our efforts, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they.
Your password deserves careful thought and protection. Use unique numbers, letters, and special characters and do not disclose your password to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. If your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately access your profile on the Site to change your password and notify us immediately firstname.lastname@example.org.
Updating Your Information or Opting Out
You can see, review and change most of your personal information by logging into the Site or Services. We will not manually modify your personal information because it is very difficult to verify your identity remotely. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate. Once you make a public posting, you may not be able to change or remove it. Upon your request, we will close your account and remove your personal information from view as soon as reasonably possible, based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law. We retain personal information from closed accounts in order to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our Site-related agreements, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law or as specified elsewhere in this Policy.
Except as otherwise expressly included in this Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. If you disclose your information to others, whether they are users on the Site or other sites throughout the Internet, different rules may apply.
The Site and Services are not directed to children under thirteen (13) years of age, and we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from such children. If you are younger than thirteen, please do not provide any personally identifiable information to us. If a person 13 years of age or younger has provided personal information to us, a parent or guardian of such person should contact us at email@example.com so that we can remove such personal information from our database. We reserve the right to limit participation in particular programs, offers or promotions to those over 18 years of age.
PrepMo is located in the United States, as are the servers that make the Site available. All matters relating to privacy issues are governed by the laws of the United States and the State of California.
We may amend this Policy at any time by posting the amended terms on the Site, which will automatically take effect after they are initially posted except as otherwise specified.
We take appropriate technical and organizational measures to maintain the security of your personal information on the Site. However please remember that any messages you send over the internet are not secure unless they are appropriately encrypted. Despite our efforts, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the Site.
