Examples of these services include: (a) payment processing and authorization, and (b) fraud protection and credit risk reduction These third parties may have access to this Service’s user information, including PII, to the extent it is needed to perform their duties and functions. • We use payment information, such as credit card numbers and billing ZIP code, to help provide the Service. For example, we use payment information to process payments from a subscriber (we use a third-party payment processor to do this), to retrieve account information for a subscriber, to determine whether a subscriber is eligible for particular promotions, and to detect abuse of the Service. • corporate affiliates of Recommendator to identify products and services that may be of interest to you, for research, analysis and to assist in the improvement of our Service or those of our affiliates, and in connection with promotions conducted by us, by our affiliates, or jointly.

2.5 Analytics. Recommendator may use third party analytics service providers to evaluate and provide us with information about the Service and viewing of our content. These vendors may have their own tracking technologies on your device and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you. This information may be stored and shared by these vendors to process your transactions and provide access to the Service. Recommendator may also use this information for internal review and analysis of the Service, the customer service process, and consumer comments.

2.6 Successor. Recommendator may disclose your personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information to any successor or to any person or entity that acquires ownership or control of the Service, Site, Content, and Features by any means. You hereby consent to the disclosure to, and use by, any such successor or subsequent owner or operator, and your continued use of the Service, Site, Content, and Features signifies your agreement to be bound by such successor’s or subsequent owner or operator’s own privacy policy. Recommendator is not responsible for any changes or modifications to this Privacy Policy by any successor or subsequent owner or operator of the Service, Site, Content, and Features.

2.7 Administrative; Legal. Recommendator may also disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties in any of the following instances:

• we have been given your consent to disclose
• we have previously informed you of the disclosure, including by means of our Privacy Policy
• we are required by law or court order to disclose, or we believe in good faith that the law requires it
• disclosure is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against, someone who may cause or be causing harm to, or interference with, our rights or property, other users of the Service, Site, and Features, or anyone else
• to respond to an inquiry, request or complaint that you have made. We may also use IP addresses in cooperation with Internet service providers to identify users if we deem it necessary to comply with laws, to enforce compliance with the Privacy Policy.

RECOMMENDATOR may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. For instance, if a friend sends you a new message or poke, or someone posts on your wall, you may receive an email alerting you to that fact.

Generally, you may opt out of such emails here, though RECOMMENDATOR reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.

RECOMMENDATOR may use information in your profile without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as aggregating how many people in a network like a band or movie and personalizing advertisements and promotions so that we can provide you with RECOMMENDATOR. We believe this benefits you. You can know more about the world around you and, where there are advertisements, they’re more likely to be interesting to you. For example, if you put a favorite movie in your profile, we might serve you an advertisement highlighting a screening of a similar one in your town. But we don’t tell the movie company who you are.

We may use information about you that we collect from other sources, including but not limited to Social Network Platforms where we have a presence, newspapers and Internet sources such as blogs, instant messaging services, Social Network Platform developers and other users of RECOMMENDATOR, to supplement your profile. Where such information is used, we generally allow you to specify in your privacy settings that you do not want this to be done or to take other actions that limit the connection of this information to your profile (e.g., removing photo tag links).

3. SHARING YOUR INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES

We allow you to choose the information you provide to friends and networks through RECOMMENDATOR. Our network architecture and your privacy settings allow you to make informed choices about who has access to your information. We do not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, 2) legally required or, 3) permitted by you. When you use RECOMMENDATOR, certain information you post or share with third parties (e.g., a friend or someone in your network), such as personal information, comments, messages, photos, videos, listings or other information, may be shared with other users in accordance with the privacy settings you select. All such sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information in your profile or when posting comments, messages, photos, videos, listings or other items , this information may become publicly available.

4. LINKS

RECOMMENDATOR may contain links to other websites or be accessed through other websites. We are of course not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by RECOMMENDATOR.

5. THIRD PARTY ADVERTISING

Advertisements that appear on RECOMMENDATOR are sometimes delivered (or “served”) directly to users by third party advertisers. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer, or use other technologies such as JavaScript and “web beacons” (also known as “1×1 gifs”) to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows the advertising network to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. RECOMMENDATOR does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third party advertisers. Third party advertisers have no access to your contact information stored on RECOMMENDATOR unless you choose to share it with them. This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by RECOMMENDATOR and does not cover the use of cookies or other tracking technologies by any of its advertisers.

6. CHANGING OR REMOVING INFORMATION

Access and control over most personal information on RECOMMENDATOR is readily available through the profile editing tools. RECOMMENDATOR users may modify or delete any of their profile information at any time by logging into their account. Information will be updated immediately. Individuals who wish to deactivate their RECOMMENDATOR account may do so on their account page. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time but will not be generally available to members of RECOMMENDATOR. Where you make use of the communication features of the service to share information with other individuals on RECOMMENDATOR, however, (e.g., sending a personal message to another RECOMMENDATOR user) you generally cannot remove such communications.

7. SECURITY CLIENT’S OPINION

RECOMMENDATOR takes appropriate precautions to protect our users’ information. Your account information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number or your password), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). (To learn more about SSL, go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Sockets_Layer). Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services.
