Usage Information

Like most websites, we may use automatic data collection technology when you visit the Site to record information that identifies your computer, to track your use of our Site, and to collect certain basic information about you and your surfing habits, whenever you visit our Site or Services or when you access the Services by or through a mobile device.

Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of website users. You can reject cookies by following the directions provided in your Internet provider’s “help” file. If you reject cookies, you may still visit the Site, but may not be able to use some areas of the Site and/or the Services.

We do not collect Personal Information in this way, but if you’ve provided us with Personal Information, we may associate that information with the information that is collected automatically. Automatic data collection may be performed on our behalf by our services providers.

HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?

It is important to remember that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information or photographs on-line, your such information and content can be collected and used by others. If you transmit or post personal information and/or pictures on-line that is accessible to others, you will not be able to control how that information is used by others. When we receive the transmitted information and pictures, we take commercially reasonable steps to protect the Personal Information and pictures from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Unfortunately, notwithstanding any of the steps taken by us, it is not possible to guarantee the security and integrity of data transmitted over the Internet. We cannot guarantee and do not warrant the security of our databases, nor the guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the Internet. In particular, e-mail sent to or from us may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. All such transmission of information is at your own risk. Moreover, though we are committed to having our Web Site comply with this Privacy Policy, you are ultimately responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your password and your personally identifiable information. If you are careless with your password, or you decide to share your password with third parties, you must be aware of the risk that such third parties will have access to all your personally identifiable information.

In addition, you acknowledge and agree that the information and pictures will be viewed by others (not just the sender, recipient, and us), including our third-party vendors, and the correctional institution receiving the information/pictures/other content. By agreeing to use the Service and uploading your information and pictures/other content, you acknowledge and agree that you do not have a right to privacy to such information and pictures/other content and that we do not protect your right to privacy. If you do not wish for us, any of our third-party vendors, or any correctional institution or other government agency to view your information, pictures/other content, DO NOT PURCHASE OUR SERVICES.

HOW LONG DO WE RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

Pelipost will retain your Personal Information only for as long as is necessary for the purpose set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your Personal Information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies.

Pelipost will also retain Usage Information for internal analysis purposes. Usage information is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen security or improve the functionality of our Services or Site, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer periods.

WHO DO WE DISCLOSE YOUR PERSONAL INFORATION TO?

We do not disclose your Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

We, like many businesses, sometimes hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples include mailing information, maintaining databases, hosting services, and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function, which may include Personal Information. Some third party programs include: Google analytics, Admob by Google, ad colony by Jirbo Inc., and Facebook.

Third parties that have links on our Site may collect personally identifiable information about you. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of such sites and the practices of these sites are not governed by this Privacy Policy. If you have questions about the privacy policies or practices of a third-party site, you should contact the site administrator or webmaster of the specific site. We may from time to time partner with other companies to offer co-branded services as well as sweepstakes, contests and promotions. Any information that you provide in connection with the co-branded services or any jointly sponsored sweepstakes, contests or promotions will become the joint property of Company and its business partners. We will maintain your information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. However, this Privacy Policy does not govern the privacy policies and practices of our business partners. If you have questions about the privacy policies or practices of our business partners, you should contact them directly.

If we or all or substantially all of our assets are acquired, we expect that the information that we have collected, including Personal Information, would be transferred along with our other business assets. We may disclose your Personal Information and Usage Information to government authorities and to other third parties when compelled to do so by government authorities, at our discretion, or otherwise as required by law, including but not limited to in response to court orders and subpoenas.

We may also disclose your Personal Information and Usage Information when we have reason to believe that someone is or may be causing injury to or interference with our rights or property, other users of this Site, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

DO WE SELL OR RENT YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?

No, as a general rule, we do not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to anyone. If and whenever we intend to share your personally identifiable information with a third party (other than to a business partner as provided herein), you will be notified at the time of data collection or transfer, and you will have the option of not permitting the transfer. However, we may from time to time rent or sell demographic information in the aggregate that does not contain your personally identifiable information.

ARE CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13 ALLOWED TO USE THE SITE AND “DO NOT TRACK” SIGNALS?

We strive to educate parents and kids about how to appropriately safeguard their privacy when using our Services. We are committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”), which requires us to inform parents and legal guardians about our information collection and use practices. COPPA also requires that we obtain parental consent before we allow children under the age of 13 to access and/or use our Services. We urge kids to check with their parents before entering information through our Site and/or Services, and we recommend that parents discuss with their kids restrictions regarding the online release of Personal Information to anyone they don’t know. We strive to help parents ensure that their kids have a safe experience using our Services. Parents or legal guardians can review any Personal Information collected about their child under 13 years of age, have this information deleted, request that there be no further collection or use of their child’s Personal Information, and/or allow for our collection and use of their child’s Personal Information while withholding consent for us to disclose it to third parties. We take steps to verify the identity of anyone requesting information about a child and to ensure that the person is in fact the child’s parent or legal guardian.

We do not support Do Not Track ("DNT"). Do Not Track is a preference you can set in your web browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked. You can enable or disable Do Not Track by visiting the Preferences or Settings page of your web browser.
