PII, as used in US pri­va­cy law and infor­ma­tion secu­ri­ty, is infor­ma­tion that can be used on its own or with oth­er infor­ma­tion to iden­ti­fy, con­tact, or locate a sin­gle per­son, or to iden­ti­fy an indi­vid­u­al in con­text. Please read our pri­va­cy pol­i­cy care­ful­ly to get a clear under­stand­ing of how we col­lect, use, pro­tect or oth­er­wise han­dle your Per­son­al­ly Iden­ti­fi­able Infor­ma­tion in accor­dance with our web­site.

3. How do we protect visitor information?

Your per­son­al infor­ma­tion is con­tained behind secured net­works and is only acces­si­ble by a lim­it­ed num­ber of per­sons who have spe­cial access rights to such sys­tems, and are required to keep the infor­ma­tion con­fi­den­tial. We imple­ment a vari­ety of secu­ri­ty mea­sures when a user enters, sub­mits, or access­es their infor­ma­tion to main­tain the safe­ty of your per­son­al infor­ma­tion.

For the pur­pose of the Data Pro­tec­tion Act 1998 (the Act), the data con­troller is Linkdex Lim­it­ed. Linkdex is reg­is­tered under the Act under reg­is­tra­tion num­ber: PZ2610422.

4. Google

Google’s adver­tis­ing require­ments can be summed up by Google’s Adver­tis­ing Prin­ci­ples. They are put in place to provide a pos­i­tive expe­ri­ence for users, and can be found here: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/1316548?hl=en

We have imple­ment­ed the fol­low­ing:

  • Demo­graph­ics and Inter­ests Report­ing
  • Dou­bleClick Plat­form Inte­gra­tion

We along with third-par­ty ven­dors, such as Google use first-par­ty cook­ies (such as the Google Ana­lyt­ics cook­ies) and third-par­ty cook­ies (such as the Dou­bleClick cook­ie) or oth­er third-par­ty iden­ti­fiers togeth­er to com­pile data regard­ing user inter­ac­tions with ad impres­sions, and oth­er ad ser­vice func­tions as they relate to our web­site.

5. California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOP­PA is the first state law in the nation to require com­mer­cial web­sites and online ser­vices to post a pri­va­cy pol­i­cy. The law’s reach stretch­es well beyond Cal­i­for­nia to require a per­son or com­pa­ny in the Unit­ed States (and con­ceiv­ably the world) that oper­ates web­sites col­lect­ing per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion from Cal­i­for­nia con­sumers to post a con­spic­u­ous pri­va­cy pol­i­cy on its web­site stat­ing exact­ly the infor­ma­tion being col­lect­ed and those indi­vid­u­als with whom it is being shared, and to com­ply with this pol­i­cy. – See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

  • Users can vis­it our site anony­mous­ly
  • Users will be noti­fied of any pri­va­cy pol­i­cy changes on our Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy page
  • Users are able to change their per­son­al infor­ma­tion by email­ing us at support@linkdex.com

6. COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the col­lec­tion of per­son­al infor­ma­tion from chil­dren under 13, the Children’s Online Pri­va­cy Pro­tec­tion Act (COPPA) puts par­ents in con­trol. The Fed­er­al Trade Com­mis­sion, the USA’s con­sumer pro­tec­tion agen­cy, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what oper­a­tors of web­sites and online ser­vices must do to pro­tect children’s pri­va­cy and safe­ty online.

We do not specif­i­cal­ly mar­ket to chil­dren under 13.

7. Fair Information Practices

The Fair Infor­ma­tion Prac­tices Prin­ci­ples form the back­bone of pri­va­cy law in the Unit­ed States and the con­cepts they include have played a sig­nif­i­cant role in the devel­op­ment of data pro­tec­tion laws around the globe. Under­stand­ing the Fair Infor­ma­tion Prac­tice Prin­ci­ples and how they should be imple­ment­ed is crit­i­cal to com­ply with the var­i­ous pri­va­cy laws that pro­tect per­son­al infor­ma­tion.

In order to be in line with Fair Infor­ma­tion Prac­tices we will take the fol­low­ing respon­sive action, should a data breach relat­ing to per­son­al infor­ma­tion occur, We will noti­fy the users via email with­in 7 busi­ness days.

We also agree to the indi­vid­u­al redress prin­ci­ple, which requires that indi­vid­u­als have a right to pur­sue legal­ly enforce­able rights again­st data col­lec­tors and proces­sors who fail to adhere to the law. This prin­ci­ple requires not only that indi­vid­u­als have enforce­able rights again­st data users, but also that indi­vid­u­als have recourse to courts or a gov­ern­ment agen­cy to inves­ti­gate and/or pros­e­cute non-com­pli­ance by data proces­sors.

8. CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for com­mer­cial email, estab­lish­es require­ments for com­mer­cial mes­sages, gives recip­i­ents the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for vio­la­tions.

We col­lect your email address in order to:

  • Send infor­ma­tion, respond to inquiries, and/or oth­er requests or ques­tions.
  • Mar­ket to our mail­ing list or con­tin­ue to send emails to our clients after the orig­i­nal trans­ac­tion has occurred

To be in accor­dance with CANSPAM we agree to the fol­low­ing:

  • NOT use false, or mis­lead­ing sub­jects or email address­es
  • Iden­ti­fy the mes­sage as an adver­tise­ment in some rea­son­able way
  • Include the phys­i­cal address of our busi­ness or site head­quar­ters
  • Mon­i­tor third par­ty email mar­ket­ing ser­vices for com­pli­ance, if one is used.
  • Hon­or opt-out/unsubscribe requests quick­ly
  • Allow users to unsub­scribe by using the link with­in each email

If at any time you would like to unsub­scribe from receiv­ing future emails, you can email us at support@linkdex.com
and we will prompt­ly remove you from ALL cor­re­spon­dence.

9. Disclosure of your information

We may dis­close your per­son­al infor­ma­tion to any mem­ber of our cor­po­rate group. We may also dis­close your per­son­al infor­ma­tion to cer­tain third par­ties in the fol­low­ing sce­nar­ios:

  • If we sell or buy any busi­ness or assets, in which case we may dis­close your per­son­al infor­ma­tion to the prospec­tive sell­er or buy­er of such busi­ness or assets;
  • if Linkdex Lim­it­ed or sub­stan­tial­ly all of its assets are acquired by a third par­ty, in which case per­son­al infor­ma­tion held by it about its users and cus­tomers will be one of the trans­ferred assets;
  • if we are under a duty to dis­close or share your per­son­al infor­ma­tion in order to com­ply with any legal oblig­a­tion, or in order to enforce or apply our terms of use and oth­er agree­ments; or to pro­tect the rights, prop­er­ty, or safe­ty of Linkdex Lim­it­ed, our cus­tomers, or oth­ers.
