  2. Types of Information Collected and How Pin4Ever Uses It

    1. Personal Information

      Website visitors can access most of the webpages without providing any Personal Information. If you choose to register for a Pin4Ever Account, which is required to access and use the backup Service, you will be asked to provide Personal Information which can be used by Pin4Ever: to identify and contact you; to verify your Account information; and to enable use of the Pin4Ever Service. Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, your email address, your name, transaction details when you purchase a subscription or activate a free trial, and your Pinterest Username. Pin4Ever or its Agents may use your Personal Information to contact you with news about Pin4Ever, promotions or marketing, and additional information that Pin4Ever believes may be of interest to you.

    2. Non-Personal Information

      Pin4Ever also collects other information sent to us by your computer, mobile phone, or other access device during the registration, operation and customization of your Account and your use of the Service and website that cannot reasonably be used to identify or contact you, through the use of technological tools such as the Web Log Data and Cookies described below. Pin4Ever may use both Personal and Non-Personal Information, alone or in combination, in order to analyze and understand how the website and Service are used, to guide efforts to enhance the website or Service, to improve marketing and promotional efforts, and/or to attempt to accommodate your preferences when you are using the website or Service.

    3. Web Log Data and Cookies

      Non-Personal Information may be collected through technological tools such as Web Log Data and/or Cookies when you visit our website or use the Pin4Ever Service, including but not limited to your IP address, browser type, referring websites, pages visited, display preferences, and access times. When you visit our website, cookies (i.e., small data files) may be set on your computer by Pin4Ever, or by a web analytics service utilized by Pin4Ever. You may refuse the use of cookies if you prefer by using the settings on your browser, but this may impair your ability to benefit from the full functionality of the Pin4Ever website and Service. The Non-Personal Information collected from technological tools such as Web Logs and Cookies is used by Pin4ever to gather and analyze general statistics regarding use of the Pin4Ever website and Service, for operating the website and Service, and for maintaining and improving the quality of the website and Service.

  3. Sharing of Your Information

    1. Compliance with Law and Law Enforcement

      Pin4Ever intends to cooperate with government and law enforcement representatives and private parties to help ensure compliance with the law. Pin4Ever can disclose to government or law enforcement officials or private third parties any information Pin4Ever possesses about you that Pin4Ever, in its sole discretion, believes is appropriate or necessary in order to: respond to claims or legal process including, but not limited to, subpoenas; protect the rights or property of Pin4Ever or a third party; protect the safety of any individual or the public; or prevent or halt activity that Pin4Ever believes to be actually or potentially illegal, unethical or legally actionable.

      Pin4Ever may sell, divest, transfer, assign, share or otherwise engage in a transaction that involves some or all of Pin4Ever's assets, including any or all of the information described in this Privacy Policy, in the course of a business merger, acquisition, joint venture, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or any other similar transaction or proceeding.

  4. Governing Law; International Information Transfers

    This Privacy Policy shall be governed by the laws of the United States. The server(s) that make the website available and the databases where information is stored may be located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction from which you accessed the website, and may be situated in a jurisdiction that has different privacy laws than those of your present location or place of residence. The information voluntarily provided by you while using Pin4Ever's website or Service may, therefore, be transferred internationally, and Pin4Ever may collect, store, process, and use information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. By visiting the Pin4Ever website, registering for an Account and/or using the Service, you consent to such transfer, collection, use, processing and/or storage of your information in accordance with the Pin4Ever Privacy Policy.

You may also use the "Contact Us" link found at the top of every webpage to request changes or corrections of your Account information. You can also opt out of receiving certain email communications, such as promotions and marketing from Pin4Ever and its Agents, by visiting the Settings page as described and indicating your preference. If you choose not to receive these optional email messages, Pin4Ever will only contact you as deemed necessary, such as when there is information Pin4Ever views as important to communicate to you regarding your Account, the website or the Service.

  6. Links to and from Third-Party Websites

    The Pin4Ever website may contain links to other third-party websites. The presence of a link to a third-party website on Pin4Ever's website does not indicate Pin4Ever's endorsement, approval or representation of an affiliation with such third-parties or their websites. In addition, other websites which are not affiliated with, or endorsed or approved by, Pin4Ever may also provide links to the Pin4Ever website without Pin4Ever's knowledge or consent. The privacy policies and data collection practices on any such third-party websites linked to or from the Pin4Ever website are entirely separate from Pin4Ever and are not covered by this Privacy Policy. Pin4Ever has no control over or responsibility for the content, policies, actions or inactions of these third-party linked websites.

  7. Storage and Security of Information

      Pin4Ever uses commercially reasonable methods to protect the integrity and security of the information it collects and maintains through the website and Service. All Personal Information submitted by our users is protected against unauthorized access or use by security measures, such as firewalls and encryption. However, no data transmitted over the internet or stored electronically is completely secure, and Pin4Ever therefore cannot guarantee or warrant that any information you provide will not be accessed, collected, disclosed, changed, destroyed or otherwise used by unauthorized persons.

    2. Protect Against Phishing and Identity Theft

      Please take reasonable precautions to protect your private information such as login information, bank account and credit card numbers, and national identification numbers from attempts at identity theft, including "phishing," made by unauthorized third parties. Pin4Ever will not request such private information from you by either telephone or email. Payments for Pin4Ever Service subscriptions are handled exclusively through PayPal

    3. Information Storage

    Pin4Ever retains information as long as it is necessary and relevant for our operations. In addition, Pin4Ever may retain Personal Information from closed Accounts to comply with the law, prevent fraud, collect any monies owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigation, enforce our Terms of Service and take other actions permitted by law.

    As Pin4Ever is not intended for use by children under age 13, information will not be knowingly collected from them. We recommend that parents monitor their children's online activities, and investigate and utilize software or other tools that allow them to ensure that their children can enjoy the internet as the parents deem appropriate. If a parent or guardian has knowledge that a child has submitted Personal Information to Pin4Ever without consent of the parent or guardian, he or she may contact us using the "Contact Us" link found at the top of every webpage, and request deletion of the information.
