When we do need your personal information to provide services that you request or products you purchase, or when you choose to provide us with your personal information, this Policy describes how we collect and use your personal information. Your use of PONYUP’s services, products and this Website shall constitute your consent to the terms of this Policy and any changes to this Policy that may be made to it in the future in accordance with the terms set forth in this Policy.
Personal information means any information recorded in any form that relates to an individual and identifies or can be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal or other physical address, Social Security number, or other unique identifier.
When you browse the Website, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish PONYUP to remember your login and password. We don’t automatically collect personal information, including your email address, however, we do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our Website you visit and how long you spend there, but we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our Website. Like many other commercial websites, the Website may use a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how you use the site. Please go to “Cookies and Tracking Information” below for more information.
PONYUP collects personal information when you register with PONYUP for a PONYUP account, when you use certain PONYUP products or services, when you register to attend a seminar or participate in an online survey, when you ask to be included in an email or other mailing list, or when you submit your personal information to PONYUP for any other reason. From time to time, PONYUP receives personal information from business partners and vendors. PONYUP only uses such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with this Policy and applicable laws, including but not limited to the Principles.
Access to certain web pages on the Website requires a login and a password. The use of those web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and PONYUP. Unless you request deletion of your personal information as specified below, your personal information may be retained by PONYUP to verify compliance with the agreement, log software licenses granted, to track software downloaded from those pages, or track usage of other applications available on those pages.
When you send an email or other communications to PONYUP, PONYUP may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your inquiries and/or improve our services. All emails and other communications to PONYUP become the property of PONYUP upon receipt, except for any personal information that is contained therein.
When personal information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection the purpose for the collection. PONYUP will not transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent, except under the limited conditions described under the discussion entitled “Information Sharing and Disclosure” below. If you choose to provide us with your personal information, we may only transfer that information within PONYUP or any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to PONYUP’s third party service providers in accordance with this Policy. Upon receiving your permission, we may transfer your information across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.
We will always give you the opportunity to “opt out” of receiving direct marketing or market research information. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection. In some cases, when applicable, we will provide you with the opportunity to “opt in.” This means we will require your affirmative action to indicate your consent before we use your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted.
Cookies and Tracking Technology
A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you have visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites.
How We Use Information Collected
PONYUP uses personal information for several general purposes: (i) to fulfill your requests for certain products and services; (ii) to provide our services, including the display of content, to audit, research and conduct analysis in order to maintain, protect and improve our services; (iii) to ensure the technical functioning of our network; (iv) to protect the rights or property of PONYUP and its users; (v) to develop new services; (vi) to personalize your experience on our Website; (vii) to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers or other information we think you’d like to hear about either from us or from our business partners; and or (viii) to better understand your needs and provide you with better services. Subject to any applicable opt-in and opt-out requirements, we may also use your information to send you, or to have our business partners send you, direct marketing information or contact you for market research.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Because PONYUP is a global company, your personal information may be shared with PONYUP affiliates around the world. All such entities are governed by this Policy or are bound by the appropriate confidentiality and data transfer agreements.
Your personal information is never shared outside PONYUP without your permission, except under conditions explained below. Inside PONYUP, data is stored in controlled servers with limited access. Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country where PONYUP, its subsidiaries, affiliates or agents are located.
PONYUP may send your personal information to other companies or people under any of the following circumstances:
(1) when we have your consent to share the information;
(2) we need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested; or
(3) we need to send the information to companies who work on behalf of PONYUP to provide a product or service to you (we will only provide those companies the information (i) they need to deliver the service, or (ii) for the purposes for which the information was initially collected, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose).
PONYUP may also share your personal information when we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (1) satisfy any applicable law (Foreign, Federal, State or Local), regulation, legal process or enforceable government request, (2) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (3) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of PONYUP, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.
PONYUP may also share with third parties certain aggregate information or anonymized or pseudonymized data regarding the use of PONYUP’s services or Website, such as, for example, the number of people who visit certain web pages or use certain services offered by PONYUP.
Your PONYUP account information is password-protected for your privacy and security. PONYUP safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. In certain areas of our Website, PONYUP uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to enhance the security of data transmissions. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit to us, and so we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
PONYUP utilizes certain security measures to attempt to protect against misuse, loss, unauthorized access to or alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures. PONYUP restricts access to personal information to PONYUP employees, contractors and agents who need to know and have access to this information. Although PONYUP takes reasonable steps to protect the data that it collects from its users, it is simply not possible to protect against every conceivable breach of security. Although we do our best to make our Website and data secure, we cannot guarantee the total security of our Website and data. Accordingly, you agree that you will not hold PONYUP responsible, and hereby release PONYUP, for any inadvertent or unauthorized disclosure of user information that may occur, such as, for example, by a person hacking into our system and unlawfully gaining access to our data.
PONYUP processes personal information for the purpose for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy. PONYUP reviews its data collection, storage and processing practices to ensure that it collects, stores and processes personal information needed to provide or improve its services, or as otherwise permitted under this Policy.
Correcting and Updating Your Information
PONYUP depends upon its users to record, update and correct their personal information whenever necessary. PONYUP asks that individual users review and update their personal information from time to time as this information becomes outdated. For this purpose, PONYUP will allow you access to your personal information in order to correct, amend or delete inaccurate information. However, PONYUP may decline to process requests to update information that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be impractical.
Children and Privacy
Our Website does not target and is not intended to attract children under the age of 13. PONYUP does not knowingly solicit personal information from children under the age of 13 or send them requests for personal information.
