Company’s Use and Disclosure of Information
To allow third party service providers to assist us in providing and managing Company Services. The Company may make your non-public personal information available to certain third party service providers, such as contractors, agents or sponsors, who help us manage or provide the Company Services by, e.g.: advertising and marketing; developing or supporting products and features; processing payments; administering message boards; fulfilling orders; processing data or statistics; or assisting with the administration, judging and prize fulfillment aspects of awards, contests, promotions and sweepstakes. These outside service providers are required to protect non-public personal information entrusted to them and not use it for any other purpose than the specific service they are providing to the Company.
To contact you. The Company may periodically send promotional materials or notifications related to Company Services to the email address you provided to us at registration or subscription to your account. If you want to stop receiving promotional materials from the Company, follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each promotional email. There are certain service notification emails that you may not opt-out of as long as you are registered with or subscribed to the Company Services, such as notifications of changes to the Company Services or policies.
To protect the rights of Company and our users. There may be instances when the Company may disclose user information without providing notice or choice, including situations where the Company has a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary in order to: (i) protect or defend the legal rights or property of the Company, our affiliated companies or their employees, agents and contractors (including enforcement of our agreements); (ii) protect the safety and security of users of the Company Services or members of the public; (iii) protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or (iv) comply with the law or legal process.
To complete a merger or sale of assets. If the Company sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business, the Company may transfer your information to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction.
The Company uses reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard user information in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. Unfortunately, no transmission of data over the Internet can ever be guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under our control to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect your personal information, the Company cannot ensure or warrant the security of any personal information you transmit to us. Any such transmission is done at your own risk. If you believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please notify us of the problem by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Remember that even after you cancel your user account, copies of some information that is publicly viewable may remain viewable in circumstances where, for example, you have commented on content on the Company Services or if another person copied, stored or shared your information. We may also retain backup information related to your account on our servers for some time after cancellation for fraud detection or to comply with applicable law or our internal security policies.
