A. Information FAROPOINT Collects About You.
Personal Information You Provide. We use the term “Personal Information” to mean any information that could be used to identify you, including your name, address, email address, birth date, financial information, cell or land-line phone number, or any combination of information that could be used to identify you. What Personal Information we collect from you depends on what aspects of the Site you choose to use and how you interact with the Site.
Site Visitors. We have structured our Site so that, as a casual site visitor, you may come to our Site and review selected information without registering. However, if you wish to become an Investor, then we require you to provide certain additional Personal Information.
Automatically-Collected Information. Even if you do not register for an account on the Site, we may collect certain information automatically. For example, we may automatically receive and record in our system the following information: ● your internet protocol (IP) address and location; ● referrer URL; ● the type and version of your web browser; ● device identifiers including mobile advertising identifiers; and ● your operating system. We also record page views and other general statistical and tracking information. We use this data to help us administer and operate our Site, to better understand how our users access and interact with the Site, and for security and monitoring purposes. We may send email messages that use a “click-through URL” linked to content on our Site. When you click one of these URLs, you pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked, simply do not click text or graphic links in the email.
B. How We Use Your Personal Information.
Service Providers. To assist us in running our business and to perform certain services and functions, we may share your Personal Information with third-party providers of hosting, transfer agent, email communication and customer support services, analytics, marketing, and advertising service providers, which companies provide integrated services to us as part of our product.
For Legal Reasons. We may share your Personal Information to the extent we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law or to comply with legal or regulatory requirements, or to protect against fraud, illegal activity, or to otherwise protect FAROPOINT against liability.
In Connection with a Corporate Transaction. In the event of a transaction or proposed transaction involving the transfer of substantially all of the assets of FAROPOINT or one or more of its businesses to another entity, whether an affiliate or a third party, or in connection with a bankruptcy, we may share your Personal Information in the diligence process or to otherwise facilitate the transaction, and with individuals assisting in the transaction or in connection with a bankruptcy. Your Personal Information may also be one of the transferred assets as part of the transaction or bankruptcy.
For Safety & Security. We may reveal your Personal Information to third parties, including law enforcement agencies, in order to protect the safety and security of our users or of any third party.
D. Keeping your Information Safe. We limit access to your Personal Information to those employees who have a legitimate business need to access such information. In keeping with industry standards and practices, we maintain commercially reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards and controls to protect your information. The Site is built upon a secure infrastructure with multiple layers of protection and we use industry standard encryption technologies to safeguard your information.
Users will be required to identify and authenticate themselves prior to accessing restricted portions of the Site. Generally, identification and authentication take place through the use of your user name and a password. You are responsible for keeping your password confidential. Both we and our service providers have security standards and procedures in place designed to prevent unauthorized access to your accounts and personal information. A key part of this process helps ensure that all information we have about you is accurate and up-to-date. If you ever discover inaccuracies in our data or if your personal information changes, notify us at [email protected].
The transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure, and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security of information sent to us electronically. If we learn of a security systems breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective and mitigating steps. We may also post a notice on or through the Site in the event of a security breach. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
Our Site allows site visitors and Investors to participate in surveys and questionnaires, which from time to time we may post on the Site. We also encourage our users to provide feedback to us about our Site and our Services. You are free to choose whether you participate in these activities. We may ask that, in addition to providing your responses, you also provide us with your contact information. In these instances, we use any Personal Information you choose to provide to us in connection with these activities for the purposes for which you submit the information. We aggregate information derived from survey and questionnaire information – with your Personal Information removed – for monitoring or improving the use and appeal of this Site (with no other obligation to you and, specifically, with no obligation to compensate you for these uses). You are not obligated to participate in any of these activities.
F. Links to Other Sites. This privacy statement applies only to Personal Information collected by our Site. Our Site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by FAROPOINT. FAROPOINT is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites, and we encourage you to be aware when you leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects Personal Information.
G. Data Security We have put in place commercially-reasonable security systems intended to prevent unauthorized access to or disclosure of Personal Information, and we take reasonable steps to secure and safeguard this Personal Information against loss, theft, and unauthorized use, disclosure, or modification. With that said, there is no such thing as 100% security of the networks, servers, and databases we operate or that are operated on our behalf. For example, email sent to or from the Site may not be secure. Before submitting any Personal Information via the Site, please be aware of these inherent risks and understand that you do so at your own risk.
I. Children’s Privacy. Our Site is not directed to children under the age of 18. We do not knowingly seek to collect or maintain Personal Information or other information from children under the age of 18. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete any Personal Information or other information later determined to be provided by a child under the age of 18. Use of the Site by children under the age of 18 is not permitted. If you become aware that a minor has provided Personal Information through our Site, please email us at [email protected].
