Effective Date: April 1, 2020
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
At SpreadTrends you control your own personal information. You may request that we delete any of your personal information we collected from you and retained in our member records. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records unless an exception applies. You may cancel your subscription to the service at any time. To cancel your subscription to the 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.
