WHEN WE DISCLOSE INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES


Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, we will not disclose any information we gather from you on our Website.

We may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information if we believe in good faith that we are required by law to do so. We may disclose Personally Identifiable Information in special circumstances when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to protect the safety and/or security of our users, our Website, or the general public.

We may employ independent contractors, vendors or suppliers (collectively, “Outside Contractors”) to provide specific services and products related to our Website or products, such as providing credit card processing and fraud screening, and fulfilling purchase orders. Access to your Personally Identifiable Information by these Outside Contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary in order for the Outside Contractors to perform their limited functions for us. We also require that these contractors (i) protect the privacy of your Personally Identifiable Information in a manner consistent with this Privacy policy, and (ii) not use or disclose your Personally Identifiable Information for any purpose other than providing us with products or services for which we contracted.

In addition, through our Website, you may be given the opportunity to purchase (or obtain more information regarding) certain content, or services which are sold through a person or company other than us (collectively, “Third Party Sellers”). Third Party Sellers may request that you submit certain information to them in order to purchase their products or services or to obtain additional information from them. By submitting the requested information, you affirmatively consent to have that information shared with the Third Party Seller. This information is used by the third Party Seller and may be subject to a privacy policy that is different from our Privacy Policy. We do not otherwise share or disclose your personally Identifiable information to Third-Party Sellers.

We reserve the right to transfer information to a third party in event of sale, merger or other transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of Culture Crux provided that the third party agrees to adhere to the terms of this Privacy policy. We will notify users of any such transfer through notice on our Website and to the extent possible through e-mail.

If you post personal information online, it will be publicly available and you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties. We cannot ensure the security of any information you choose to make public in a comment. Also, we cannot ensure that parties who have access to such publicly available information will respect your privacy. Please exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in comments.

ADVERTISING PRIVACY POLICY

Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads on our Website based on a user’s prior visits to this Website. Google’s use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to users based on their visit to this Website and/or other sites on the Internet. Visitors may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie for interest-based advertising by visiting Google’s Ads Settings.  Visitors can opt out of some third-party vendor’s use of cookies for interest-based advertising by visiting aboutads.info.

DOES THIS PRIVACY POLICY APPLY WHEN I LINK TO OTHER WEBSITES?

Our website contains links to other websites not owned or operated by Culture Crux We are not responsible for the content, accuracy, privacy practices and performance of those websites. We encourage you to be aware when our Website links to other websites and read the privacy policies or statements of each and every website. This Privacy Policy applies solely to the information collected by our Website.

IS THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT SECURE?

You should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security or privacy of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

CHOICES THAT I HAVE REGARDING THE COLLECTION, DISCLOSURE AND DISTRIBUTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, we will only use Personally Identifiable Information for the purposes described above or as otherwise disclosed at the time we request such information from you. You may “opt-out” of receiving other communications by contacting our Postmaster at the address set out below.

3. General Information

UPDATING AND CORRECTING YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION.

You can always contact us in order to (1) update or correct your Personally Identifiable Information, (2) change your preferences with respect to communications and other information you may receive from us, or (3) delete the Personally Identifiable Information maintained about you on our systems, by contacting our Postmaster at the address set out below. Such updates, corrections, changes and deletions will not have an effect on other information that we maintain, or information that we have provided to third parties in accordance with this Privacy Policy prior to such update, correction, change or deletion.

You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us on our systems. The need to back up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your Personally identifiable Information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. After receiving your request, all Personally Identifiable Information stored in databases we actively use and other readily searchable media will be promptly updated, corrected, changed or deleted as appropriate.

CHANGES TO THE PRIVACY POLICY.

If at any point we decide to use Personally Identifiable Information in a manner we deem significantly different from that stated in this Privacy Policy, or otherwise disclosed to you, at the time it was collected, we will notify you by posting changes on our Website in this Privacy Policy, or by e-mail or otherwise, and you will have a choice as to whether or not we use your Personally Identifiable Information in the new manner.
