Cookies And Other Technologies

Our Services use cookies and similar technologies to distinguish you from other users of our Services. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our site or otherwise engage with our Services and also allows us to improve our Services. Cookies and similar technologies can sometimes track information about you and enable you to be remembered when using the same computer or device to interact with websites, apps and online services and can be used to manage a range of features and content as well as storing searches and presenting personalized content.

 

We use these cookies and other technologies on the basis that they are necessary for the performance of a contract with you (i.e. the provision of Services), or because using them is in our legitimate interests (where we have considered that these are not overridden by your rights), and, in some cases, where required by law, where you have consented to their use.

 

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies and similar technologies, but if you prefer, you can change your browser settings (your help screen or manual will provide instructions for changing the settings).  However, please be aware that you may not be able to take full advantage of our Services if you do so.  A number of cookies and similar technologies we use last only for the duration that you use our Services and expire when you close your browser. Other cookies and similar technologies are used to remember you when you return to use our Services and will last longer. In addition, we may work with advertisers, advertising technology companies, and service providers that perform advertising- and analytics-related services for us, and our business partners may use cookies and similar technologies to collect information from or about you in order to tailor advertisements, measure advertising effectiveness, and enable other enhancements of our Services. This may include information about your use of our Services, including the content you view, other websites and services you visit, advertisements you view, and your other activities online. This may result in you seeing interest-based advertisements on or through our Services or advertisements related to our Services when you visit other websites and services of third parties, which it is believed will be relevant to your market segment.

Ideamix will only process personal data in ways that are compatible with the purpose that Ideamix collected it for, or for purposes you later authorize. Before we use your personal data for a purpose that is materially different than the purpose we collected it for or that you later authorize, we will provide you with the opportunity to opt out or, where required by applicable law, seek your consent.

We may combine this information with information you give to us and information we collect about you in our legitimate interests (where we have considered that these are not overridden by your rights). We will use this information and the combined information for the purposes set out above (depending on the types of information we receive).

 

How We Share Your Information

We do not disclose your personal information except as expressly described in this Privacy Policy.  We do not rent or sell your personal data.

 

We may share your personal information with certain third-party organizations, including third-party affiliates, suppliers, agents, contractors and/or sub-contractors for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, including so they can help us provide our Services and communicate with you about other products and services we believe may be of interest to you. These organizations will only use your information to the extent necessary to perform their support functions, and will only process your personal data on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions and applicable data protection laws.

 

These support functions may include providing website and data hosting services, processing transactions, receiving and sending communications, analyzing data and performance of our Services, facilitating feedback on our services, and providing IT support services from time to time.

 

We may also disclose your personal information to third parties if we undergo certain business transactions, including in the event that we undergo a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, purchase or sale of assets, or other similar transaction, in which case we may disclose your personal data in connection with the negotiation of such transaction, and your personal data may be sold or transferred as part of such transaction.

 

We may disclose your information if we are under a duty to disclose or share it in order to satisfy or comply with any applicable law, regulation or legal process, to respond to lawful requests, to protect the rights, property, or safety of Ideamix, our customers, other third parties or the public in general, to enforce our Terms of Use, to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal, unethical or legally actionable, or to prevent fraud or cybercrime.

Our Promotional Updates And Communications

Where permitted in our legitimate interest or with your prior consent where required by law, we may use your personal information for marketing analysis and to provide you with promotional update communications by email about our Services. We may also allow, with your consent, carefully selected third parties to send you information directly which you may find useful regarding their products and services. You can tell us not to contact you with promotional emails, newsletter notifications or other communications regarding our Services or those of third parties by following the unsubscribe link at the end of all our marketing and promotional update communications to you.

 

We do need to send you certain communications regarding our Services and you will not be able to opt out of those communications, like communications regarding updates to our Terms of Use or this Privacy Policy or information about billing. 

 

Please note that if you opt-out of promotional updates and communications, we may still collect some data about your online activity for operational purposes, but it won’t be used by us for the purpose of targeting ads to you, and if you use multiple browsers or devices, you may need to perform this opt-out on each browser or device.

 

Links To Other Sites

Our Services may contain content from, or links to, other websites and services. Any information that you provide on or to a third-party website or service (including social media sites) is provided directly to the owner of the website or service and is subject to that party's privacy policy. Our Privacy Policy does not apply to those websites or services and we are not responsible for the content, privacy or security practices and policies of those websites or services. To protect your information, we recommend that you carefully review the privacy policies of other websites and services that you access too.

 

Where Data Is Stored

We provide our Services in the United States. Therefore, if you provide us with information during your use of our Services, we collect, process, and store that information in the United States. If you are visiting from the European Economic Area or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you may be transferring your personal information to the United States, which does not have the same data protection laws as the EU or other countries.

 

How Long We Keep Your Information

We retain personal data for as long as you have an account with us in order to meet our contractual obligations to you or as long as is otherwise required by applicable law. We may also retain aggregate information beyond this time for research purposes and to help us develop and improve our Services. You cannot be identified from aggregate information retained or used for these purposes. 

 

Security Of Your Information

We rely on the security measures of our third-party service providers to protect against the accidental, unlawful or unauthorized loss, misuse or alteration of personal information under our control. Please be aware that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, and we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of information will never occur. Any submission of personal information is at your own risk.

 

It is advisable to close your browser when you have finished your user session to help ensure others do not access your personal information if you use a shared computer or a computer in a public place.
