USE OF PERSONAL DATA COLLECTED
Conneqtor uses the Personal Data collected on the Website to allow Conneqtor to provide users with access to the Site and to ensure a user’s usage of the Site is in compliance with the Terms of Service and underlying licenses a user has signed. Conneqtor may also use the Personal Data to contact a user for a variety of reasons, such as but not limited to notifying a user about use of the Website, offering additional products or services, or requesting feedback on the Website or its related services.
DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL DATA
Conneqtor may disclose Personal Data to third parties under certain circumstances. Conneqtor may disclose Personal Data to third parties if: 1) a user has requested that Conneqtor do so; 2) to comply with an applicable law, regulation, valid subpoena, or request of the US Government or; 3) Conneqtor is acquired by or merged into another entity, or all or a portion of Conneqtor’s assets are sold or otherwise transferred to another entity, Conneqtor may disclose Personal Data to that entity.
NON-PERSONAL DATA COLLECTED
Other data that does not qualify as Personal Data because it cannot be used to contact or identify users (“Non-Personal Data”) may also be automatically collected about a user utilizing the Website. For example, Conneqtor uses technology to automatically collect Non-Personal Data about the use of Website. This technology is used to track how many users access Website, the date and time of their visits, the length of their stays, and which pages they view. Conneqtor may also use technology to determine which web browsers users use and the address from which they accessed the Website. The information collected using this technology does not identify any user personally and is thus all Non-Personal Data that simply enables Conneqtor to compile statistics about users and their use of the Website and related services. Conneqtor uses this Non-Personal Data and may share it with third parties to improve the content and functionality of the Website, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services.
Conneqtor may store certain information from a user’s web browser using “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s computer tied to information about the user. Conneqtor may use session-ID cookies to confirm that registered users are logged in. These cookies would terminate once the user closes the web browser. Conneqtor may also use persistent cookies that store certain Personal Data already provided to Conneqtor to make it easier for a user to log back into the Website. Cookies are used as a convenience feature for the user. A user can remove or block cookies using the settings in the user’s web browser if a user wants to disable such functions, but such action may impair the full functionality of the Website.
DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
The Website does not track users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and, therefore, does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of browsing activities when they serve users content, which enables them to tailor what they present to different users. If a user is visiting such sites, a browser may allow users to set the DNT signal on that browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know that the user does not want to be tracked.
HACKING AND SECURITY
Conneqtor uses industry standard security measures to protect users’ Personal Data. While such security measures provide reasonable protections against unauthorized access, they provide no guarantee that Personal Data will not be compromised. HACKING AND UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OCCURS AND CONNEQTOR PROVIDES NO GUARANTEE THAT PERSONAL DATA WILL NOT BE STOLEN OR MISUSED BY THIRD-PARTIES.
