HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. Siitch’s server maintenance and development team has implemented security measures designed to protect your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. Please note that all payment and credit card transactional information is stored with our 3rd party payment gateway provider, offsite from all generic data that is stored on the Siitch hosting environment. This is in line with current security standards and best practices.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Site. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site.
We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly. For information about how you can opt out of receiving targeted advertising from many providers, see CORRECTING AND CONTROLLING YOUR INFORMATION below.
CALIFORNIA DO NOT TRACK DISCLOSURE
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in their web browsers. When a user turns on the DNT signal, the browser sends a message to websites requesting them not to track the user. We do not track our customers over time and across third-party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore do not respond to DNT signals.
CORRECTING AND CONTROLLING YOUR INFORMATION
If you do not wish to have your contact information used by the Company to promote our own products or services, you can opt out at any time by:
- Clicking the opt out link in any email newsletter received; or
- Sending us an email stating the request to firstname.lastname@example.org
This opt out does not apply to information provided to the Company as a result of a product purchase, product service experience or other transactions.
If you have created an account, you can review, change, and delete your personal information, and any other family members you have created a profile for, or delete your account, by logging into the Site and visiting your ‘My account’ page.
When you RSVP for an event as a guest, your name, your contact information (email address and/or phone number) and any messages will be stored on the party host’s dashboard for one (1) year. The summarized data of dietary restrictions of the party will also be saved, but no personally identifiable information will be linked to such summarized data. This will also be stored in the party host’s dashboard for one (1) year.
You may also send us an email at [email@example.com] to correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us or has been provided to us by a user of the Site. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way. You can opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) on the NAI’s website.
