POLICY AND THE SAFEGUARD USER AGREEMENT (THE “AGREEMENT”)

CAREFULLY. THIS PRIVACY POLICY IS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE INTO THE

COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION

“Personally Identifiable Information” means specific information about users obtained via this

Site that can be used to identify and contact a person, such as a person’s name, a person’s postal

delivery address, a person’s e-mail address, a person’s payment information (e.g., credit card

number and expiration date) and a person’s telephone number.

When you use certain services available on this Site we may ask you to supply us with

Personally Identifiable Information and other information so that we can provide, enhance and

personalize our services and marketing efforts. To help prevent fraud or other illegal activities,

we may ask you to supply Personally Identifiable Information, such as credit card information,

driver’s license numbers and/or other information, so that we can determine whether you are the

person you claim to be and determine whether the information being provided is authentic. We

may supplement the Personally Identifiable Information you provide with publicly available

information about you. We use this information to reply to your questions, process the

information you provide, process your payments, prevent fraud and other illegal activities and to

communicate with you on these and other topics. We may also use your e-mail address to send

you newsletters, as well as messages about Safeguard. Occasionally, we may send these

materials to you via postal mail, using an address provided. If you no longer want to receive the

newsletters or other announcements, simply send a quick e-mail to safeguard@safegc.com with

the subject line, “Unsubscribe.” Please note that you cannot unsubscribe from certain

correspondence from us, including messages relating to your payments, transactions or services

that have or are being provided to you.

We track your interactions with us, including but not limited to your Site activity, payment

history and correspondence, as well as any incoming e-mails and related activity. We use this

information for such purposes as personalizing the Site to better reflect particular interests,

tracking your payments, and helping us quickly and efficiently respond to inquiries and requests

and otherwise enhancing our service offering for our customers. We may also disclose and

otherwise use, on an anonymous basis, certain information, such as aggregate information,

survey responses, consumption habits, commentary and non-personal information about users.

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

This Site may contain links to sites operated by third parties whose policies regarding the

handling of information may differ from ours. While we endeavor to associate with reputable

sites, Safeguard cannot be responsible for the information handling practices of these other sites.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to other sites linked to by this Site.

CHILDREN

Individuals under the age of 18 may only utilize the Site with the permission and involvement of

a parent or legal guardian. Safeguard generally does not distribute products or services for use by

children and we do not intentionally seek to collect Personally Identifiable Information from

individuals 18 years of age and younger. If we discover that we have inadvertently gathered any

such information from a child under 18 years of age, we will take appropriate steps to delete it.

While we will make reasonable efforts to comply with your request to modify information, you

should be aware that it is not always possible to completely delete or modify all information in

our databases and servers. Additionally, we may intentionally retain information you have

requested us to modify or delete in certain circumstances, such as to resolve disputes,

troubleshoot problems and enforce our agreements with you. Further, we are unable to modify

information in the records of any third party who has been provided with this information in

accordance with this Privacy Policy.

COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGY

When you access this Site, certain information about you and your use of this Site may be

collected automatically through the use of various types of technology. For example, as you

browse this Site, “cookies” may be placed on your computer’s hard drive. (Cookies are small

pieces of data that are sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your hard drive for

record keeping purposes.) In general, cookies can make the Internet more useful by storing

information about your preferences on a particular site. If your browser is set to not accept

cookies, your access to this Site may be limited.

In addition to cookies, we may use other technologies, including pixel tags, to gather information

on how our users interact with this Site and to otherwise help us efficiently operate and monitor

our Site and service. These technologies show us, for example, popular pages, conversion rates,

click-throughs and other information that can be used to improve, operate and monitor this Site

and our service.

DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

In an effort to serve you better, improve your online experiences, protect ourselves and others

and provide the requested services to you, we may share Personally Identifiable Information, in a

reasonable manner as described below.

We may use other companies, agents or contractors to perform services on our behalf. In the

course of providing such services, these other companies may have access to Personally

Identifiable Information. For example, we may provide Personally Identifiable Information

regarding you to financial institutions, financial service providers or payment processors to

process your credit card payments.

We may release Personally Identifiable Information to third parties (i) to protect against or

investigate fraud or other potentially harmful or illegal activities; (ii) if we reasonably believe

disclosure is required by law; (iii) if we reasonably believe disclosure is necessary to establish or

exercise legal rights; or (iv) to defend against claims or in situations involving potential threats to

physical safety.

In the event that Safeguard is acquired by or merged with a third party, we reserve the right to

disclose, sell or otherwise transfer all Personally Identifiable Information we have collected as

part of or in connection with that transaction.

 

We may also share Personally Identifiable Information about you with third parties with your

consent. Once we share Personally Identifiable Information with your consent with a third party,

the use and protection of that information by the third party will no longer be subject to this

Privacy Policy.

 

Except as otherwise provided, we will not sell your Personally Identifiable Information to third

parties without notifying you of our intent to sell this information in advance and giving you a

reasonable opportunity to prevent your Personally Identifiable Information from being sold. In

our sole discretion, we may sell, share or disclose any information about you that is not

considered to be Personally Identifiable Information.

SECURITY

Safeguard takes information security very seriously and uses reasonable administrative, technical

and managerial measures to protect Personally Identifiable Information from unauthorized

access. For example, we utilize Secure Sockets Layering, an industry-standard protocol for

certain types of transmissions, in order to encrypt Personally Identifiable Information provided

by you through the Site’s registration and sign up process. Additionally, we store e-mail

addresses and information regarding payment methods in an encrypted form. You are

responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your information and for restricting access to

your computer or mobile device through which you access this Site.

By using this Site, you expressly agree that we can communicate with you electronically

regarding Personally Identifiable Information, security, privacy and administrative issues relating

to information you have provided and/or your use of this Site.

Unfortunately, no security system or data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be

100% secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee that the information you provide to us or that

we provide to you via this Site, via e-mail or otherwise will be securely transmitted and we

cannot assume liability for improper access to such information. By using this Site, sending e-

mails to us and agreeing via this Privacy Policy to receive e-mails from us you agree to assume

any security risks and other risks associated with such actions or activities. In addition, you

expressly acknowledge the application of the limitation of liability provisions (as well as the

other provisions) set forth in the Agreement.

Safeguard reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make changes to this Privacy Policy at any

time for any reason by posting the revised provisions on this Site. The revised provisions shall

be effective from and after the date that they are posted on the Site. By continuing to use the Site

after revisions to the Privacy Policy have been posted on this Site, you agree to any and all

revised terms.
