GUIDELINES & POLICIES
Collection of Personally Identifiable Information
Conduit does not require Website users or visitors to provide Personally Identifiable Information ("PII") to view the Content in the Website or to browse the different sections of the Website. PII is information that identifies an individual including full name, postal address, photograph, e-mail address and/or telephone number. Conduit may collect PII from Website users or visitors who choose to register as publishers within the Conduit online mobile proprietary platform ("Conduit Platform") or other programs, features or services offered by Conduit ("Services").
You may correct or update certain PII by logging in to your account with Conduit and making the change on your personal information page. If you no longer desire our Services or wish to delete or deactivate your account, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Certain areas of the Website, as well as third party websites linked to or accessible from this Website, may have different privacy policies and practices. These third parties, and not Conduit, are responsible for the privacy practices of non-Conduit websites, or channels or areas of the Website that are operated by third parties, including but not limited to applications and/or features provided by third parties.
Personal information about children who are under 13 years of age is not knowingly or intentionally collected.
Other Information Collected
We, our service providers and partners may collect various types of non-PII when you visit the Website. Examples of non-PII that may be collected from visitors include: Internet protocol address, the type of browser (e.g., Firefox, Internet Explorer), type of operating system, (e.g., Microsoft Windows or Mac OS), domain name of Internet service provider (e.g., Comcast, Verizon or AT&T), web pages visited, websites visited before and after visiting the Website, type of handheld or mobile device used to view the Website (e.g., iPhone, Blackberry) and content accessed. We may use third parties to conduct web analytics and similar services with respect to an individual's interaction with our Website.
In order to create and maintain apps using the Conduit Platform or use other services or programs offered by Conduit, you must complete a registration form. During this registration, you will be asked to provide a user name, a password, a valid email address and additional information as may be required as part of the specific service or program for which you register, all of which are used to validate your registration and maintain your account as a publisher with Conduit. You also may provide us with additional information (such as company name, title etc.) so we can provide you with a more customized experience on the Website and offer you better support.
From time to time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests, surveys or special promotional or other programs on the Website or the Conduit Platform, as applicable. If you choose to participate, we may request certain PII from you. Participation in such contests, surveys or programs is voluntary, and you have a choice whether to provide this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), demographic information (such as zip code), and, in the case of a special program involving a form of payment, payment details. We use this information to notify participants, to monitor Website traffic, customize the Website or send participants email updates.
When you send email or other communications to Conduit, we may retain these communications to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services.
When registering for our Services, you may receive occasional email updates from Conduit. Such updates can include a newsletter or other notifications in relation to the Website or the Conduit Platform. We provide you with the opportunity to 'opt out' of having your PII used for such purposes when we ask for this information. For example, if you no longer wish to receive our email updates, you may opt out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each update.

Third party links
The Website may contain or present third party links to third party sites or services – all of which are not owned or controlled by us. Though we collect certain parameters related to your interactions with these third-party services (as detailed in this Policy), we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such third party sites or services and this Policy does not apply to them.

Transfer of Data outside Your Territory
The Website, by its nature as an online service, may store and process information in Europe, the United States and in other various locations throughout the globe.

Conduit uses both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. Conduit uses session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate the Website. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You may remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser's "help" file. We set a persistent cookie for such uses as to store your app name and/or user name so you don't have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the users’ experience on the Website. If you reject cookies, you may still use the Website, but your ability to use some areas of the Website may be limited.
By visiting the Website, whether as a registered user or otherwise, you acknowledge, understand and hereby agree that you are giving us your consent to gather information about your use of the Website through these Information Gathering Technologies.
Server logs capture certain non–PII, such as the time and date of a web visit, the browser and operating system being used, the IP address or domain name of the user's ISP, and the web URL a user linked from. This information is generally but not exclusively used to help plan system enhancements when necessary and to provide content that is compatible with our visitors' web browsing systems.
Access to Your Personally Identifiable Information
You may send us a request to access the Personally Identifiable Information that we may collect through your use of the Website or the Conduit Platform. We may require that you provide us with additional information to verify your identity.
We may delete your Personally Identifiable Information from our systems or anonymize it if we deem it no longer necessary for our reasonable business needs.
The security of your personal information is important to us, and we implement measures to secure your Personally Identifiable Information, to the extent collected, to minimize the risks of damage, loss of information, and unauthorized access or use of information, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is absolutely secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect and secure your Personally Identifiable Information, we cannot guarantee and you cannot reasonably expect that the Website and the Conduit Platform and its databases will be immune from any wrongdoings, malfunctions, unauthorized interceptions or access, or other kinds of abuse and misuse. If you have any questions about security on the Website, you can contact us at email@example.com.
