We are committed to protecting the privacy of users of our website at http://www.protopia.co (“Site”).

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you of what kinds of information we may gather about you when you use the Site, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it, and the choices you have regarding our use of and your ability to manage and edit the information. This Privacy Policy applies to the Site. This Privacy Policy does not apply to other websites to which we link.

We collect personal information when you wish to use certain features of the Site, such as signing up, using the Site, or receiving emails from us. When you use the Site, we ask for information such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, and other personal information (“Personal Information”). We use Personal Information for the following general purposes: creating a personal account, facilitating access, serving content, to send you newsletters, periodic updates, or other general information about the Site, to meet any applicable legal and regulatory requirements, and to respond to any feedback you submit.

Through the Site, we may automatically gather certain information about the use of the Site, such as how frequently certain areas of the Site are visited, including through the use of cookies and other technologies.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (such as Google Chrome or Firefox) settings.

PROTECTING PERSONAL INFORMATION

When you give us Personal Information, we take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely. The Site uses industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving sensitive visitor data via the Site. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems, and to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information that we have collected.

Unless otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell, trade or rent your Personal Information to others. We may permit certain trusted partners to access your information in connection with their performance of services to maintain and operate the Site and certain features on the Site. We do not otherwise disclose any Personal Information or any information about your individual visits to our site except when we believe in good faith (i) that the law requires such disclosure or (ii) that such disclosure is necessary to protect the rights and property of the Site or others.

We allow you to opt out of receiving e-mail from us. If you no longer wish to receive emails from us, you may opt-out of receiving them by emailing us at team@triadconnects.org.

We use non-personally identifiable information in the aggregate so that we can improve the Site and for business and administrative purposes. We may use or share with third parties for any purpose aggregated data that contains no personally identifiable information.

Our Site may share information with companies that provide support services to us (such as providing the software powering the Site) or that help us market the Site (such as email vendors). These companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose.

Except as otherwise stated above, we will not publish or provide your e-mail address or other Personal Information to third parties without your consent.
