Privacy Policy

Effective Date: March 14, 2014
This Privacy Policy describes the types of information gathered by COSIGN Inc. (“COSIGN”, “us” or “we”) in the process of providing this website, computing application, and the data, services, information, tools, functionality, updates and similar materials (collectively, the “Service”), how we use it, with whom the information may be shared, what choices are available to you regarding collection, use and distribution of information and our efforts to protect the information you provide to us through the Service. By using the Service, you hereby consent to allow us to process information in accordance with this Policy. Please also refer to our [Terms of Use], which are incorporated as if fully recited herein.

This policy is subject to change. If our information retention or usage practices change, we will let you know by posting the Privacy Policy changes on the Service and/or otherwise making you aware of the changes. Please refer to the “Effective Date” above to see when this Policy was last updated.

Regardless of where our servers are located, your personal data may be processed by us in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may or may not be to the same level of protection as in other parts of the world. BY VISITING THE WEBSITE AND USING THE SERVICE, YOU UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING IN THE UNITED STATES OF ANY INFORMATION COLLECTED OR OBTAINED BY US THROUGH VOLUNTARY SUBMISSIONS, AND THAT U.S. LAW GOVERNS ANY SUCH COLLECTION AND PROCESSING.
We collect two types of information about persons who use the Service: voluntarily provided personal information and automatically collected information.

COSIGN collects certain Personal Information about you, which may be supplied when you sign-up for the Service, when you complete a survey, when you create or update an account, when you register for a class, when you request services or otherwise when you explicitly submit it. The information that may be collected includes:

  • Name;
  • Address;
  • Phone number;
  • Email;
  • Username;

Although the Service may allow you to sign-in through a third-party social network, such as Facebook or Google+, we do not collect information about your account with those services other than your username, name and e-mail.

Non-Personal Information is non-personally identifiable or anonymous information about you, such as age, gender, types of products purchased, links posted, enrolment history, the type of device you used and its operating system, the pages accessed most frequently, how pages are used, applications downloaded, search terms entered, and similar non-personal data. Automatically Tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses is one method of automatically collecting information about your activities online and information volunteered by you. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your device whenever you surf the Internet. Further, the Service may utilize web beacons, pixel tags, cookies, embedded links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools. The Service may also collect device identifiers.

Although you may turn off the collection of cookies through your browser options, it will interfere with your use of the Service, and will not allow us to attribute purchases made through links you post to the Service. This will result in an inability to collect referrals made through the Service.

The purpose of the Service is to share images you post. Images you post will not be considered Personal Information. The Service may request permission and access your photo gallery, camera roll, or other device storage area holding your images, in order for you to upload and share those images through the Service.

Use of Information

We accept and gather information in an effort to provide the Service to you. We may also use this information to help us develop and improve our Service, fulfill your requests, send materials to you, inform you about our offers, tailor our Service to meet your interests, and for other purposes permitted by law.

We may share personal information with our business associates, consultants, service providers, advisors and affiliates in order for them to provide services to us, to you, and to enable us to provide the Service. For example, our host and internet service provider may have access to this information.

We may disclose your profile, image and uploaded content as featured users on our service, for marketing purposes. We may also share non-personal information for marketing purposes. You may direct us to make certain information you provide to us public, by posting images, links and other content to the Service designated as being for publication.

Our Service may use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, to help us analyze how users use the Service. You may be able to opt-out of Google’s collection. Please visit Google’s Ads Preferences Manager or the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on for more information.

Further, we may disclose collected information to the extent we believe it necessary to comply with the law, such as in response to a subpoena or court order, to defend a legal claim or otherwise as permitted by applicable law. Additionally, we may transfer your information to successor in interest, which may include but may not be limited to a third-party in the event of an acquisition, sale, merger or bankruptcy.

Our Service may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. When you leave our Service to visit another website or application, please read the privacy statements of websites that may collect personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by COSIGN through the Service.

Protecting your information is a priority for us, and therefore we employ procedural and technical safeguards to secure your personal information against loss, theft, alteration, and unauthorized access, use and disclosure. We also employ security procedures to protect your information from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the company.
Regardless of the precautions taken by COSIGN, no transmission of data over the Internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under our control to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.

We may offer electronic newsletters and e-mails concerning promotions, new products and services, or other marketing materials as a service to our users. You may receive newsletters and e-mails concerning promotions and marketing of ours, after you register through with the Service. If, after you have received a message, you no longer wish to receive such materials, you may opt-out by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each electronic newsletter and e-mail.

Some of the information collected about you will be retrievable and changeable through your username login. To do so, either follow instructions on the page of the Service on which you have provided such information or subscribed and registered, or send us an email at [email protected]

The Service may contain tools that enable you to share personal information, including sensitive information, with others, through social media and in other ways. Should you choose to use such tools, please exercise caution when sharing sensitive information. The Service will not share this information in this manner without you directing it to do so.

We do not knowingly permit users to register for our Service if they are under 13 years old, and therefore do not request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13. If we become aware that a customer is under the age of 13 and has registered without prior verifiable parental consent, we will remove his or her personally identifiable registration information from our files. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of 13 who has provided personally identifiable information to us without your approval, please inform us by contacting us at the e-mail address below and we will remove such information from our database.

California law allows California residents to request information regarding our disclosures in the prior calendar year, if any, of their personally identifiable information to third parties. To make such a request, please contact us at [email protected] with "Request for Privacy Information" in the subject line. Please include enough detail for us to locate your file; at a minimum, your name, email, and username, if any. We will attempt to provide you with the requested information within thirty (30) days of receipt. We reserve our right not to respond to requests sent more than once in a calendar year, or requests submitted to an address other than the one posted in this notice. Please note that this law does not cover all information sharing. Our disclosure only includes information covered by the law.
