PRIVACY PRINCIPLE #1
At SpreadTrends we believe that privacy is critical to your ongoing patronage of our service, the success of the SpreadTrends community, and to the overall
vibrancy of the Internet. For these reasons, SpreadTrends adheres to the privacy principles on this page. These principles cover how SpreadTrends treats
personal information about you (the "Subscriber") that SpreadTrends collects and receives, including information related to your use of SpreadTrends
(the "Service"). Personal information is data about you that is personally identifiable, like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and
that is not otherwise publicly available. These principles do not apply to the practices of companies that SpreadTrends does not own or control, or to people
that SpreadTrends does not directly employ or manage. SpreadTrends reviews this policy on an annual basis and may update or amend it at any time. The date
this policy was last updated is identified at the top of this page. We will notify you about material changes in the way we treat personal information by
sending a notice to the email address specified in your SpreadTrends account or by placing a prominent notice on our site. You are also responsible for

SpreadTrends takes your personal information, and your privacy, seriously. We will keep all of the personal information that you provided during the registration
process private and confidential, except as explicity stated in this policy. SpreadTrends may use information that uniquely identifies you to improve our
Service, contact you in response to a specific inquiry, or send you promotional emails about our service. We may record your interactions with our service
to improve the quality of the service. SpreadTrends stores your email address. We do not store your account password or your password reminder question in
plaintext. We do not store any credit card or payment information.
PRIVACY PRINCIPLE #3
SpreadTrends uses your personal information for "group" demographic statistics and communications. We do not share data with third party marketers.
We may use named third party service providers to process and store Subscriber data. Otherwise we will not disclose your individual personal information, meaning
your email address, to anyone unless acting under a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: conform to legal requirements imposed on SpreadTrends or
to comply with a legal process; protect and defend SpreadTrends rights or property; or enforce the SpreadTrends Terms of Service.
PRIVACY PRINCIPLE #4
SpreadTrends may collect Internet Protocol ("IP") address data when you visit web pages on the SpreadTrends website. An IP address is a number associated
with the service through which you access the Internet, like your ISP (Internet service provider), your company, or your university. Standing alone, your
IP address is not personally identifiable. At times, we also use IP addresses for purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to
our advertisers and service providers, for example regarding the frequency with which our guests visit various parts of SpreadTrends. SpreadTrends may combine
information about you that we obtain directly with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.
PRIVACY PRINCIPLE #5
SpreadTrends may use "cookies" to store and occasionally track information on our website, thus enabling us to provide you with customizable and personalized
service. For example, we may use this information to remember your location and data filtering preferences. A cookie is no more than a small amount of data
that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. SpreadTrends may also use "web beacons". A web beacon is an electronic
file that allows a website to count users who have visited that page or access certain cookies.

PRIVACY PRINCIPLE #8
SpreadTrends may display targeted advertisements based on personal information. Advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who
interact with, view, or click on targeted ads meet the targeting criteria (for example, men aged 35-44 from a geographic area). SpreadTrends does not provide
any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to
the possibility that the advertiser will assume that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.
PRIVACY PRINCIPLE #9

service or to request the removal of your personal information from our member records, send an email to support [at] SpreadTrends. SpreadTrends reserves the
right to maintain information on registered members who have violated our Terms of Service or to comply with a legal obligation.
