Our primary purpose in collecting personal information from you is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. We only collect personal information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose. In general, you may be permitted to browse the Site, or portions of the Site, without telling us who you are or revealing personal information about yourself. Once you become a registered member, we require you to provide various contact and identity information, billing information, and other personal information as indicated on the relevant forms on the Site (which may vary, depending on what kind of User you are). Where possible, on these forms we indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional.
You always have the option to not provide information by choosing not to become a registered member, by cancelling your membership or by not using the particular feature of the Site for which the information is being collected. If you are a registered member, we, directly and/or through necessary third parties, collect and store your credit card information and/or other related banking information for payment purposes. Some of our pages utilize framing or other techniques to serve content to from third parties while preserving the look and feel of our Site. Please be aware that you are providing your personal information to these third parties and not to us.
We also automatically track certain information about you based upon your behavior on our Site and store it through log files. We use this information to do internal research on our Users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve you and our community. This information may include the URL that you just came from, which URL you next go, your computer browser information, and your IP address. We may provide Users’ IP addresses to payment intermediaries in the course of the payment process.Disclosure of Your Information
We do not sell, trade, or rent Users' personal identification information to others. However, we may share or disclose your personal information with third parties in the following ways:
Payment Information. We use credit card and other personally identifiable information (such as PayPal email addresses) you submit to us on the Site, and other information that we collect, as required, to process payments you make through the Site through our payment processor intermediaries. Unless we notify you otherwise, our payment processors have the sole and complete responsibility for the storage of credit card and payment information. We may also share personally identifiable information with our payment processor intermediaries for risk management and fraud prevention.
Forum. If you post on our forum or blog your username and other information you include is displayed in your postings or comments and may be available to the public, other registered members or certain registered members. Unless permitted otherwise by the Site and your use of the proper Site functions and tools, all of your activities in the public areas of the forum will be identifiable to your User ID, and other people can see your published content.
Subsidiaries and Affiliates; Service Providers. We may from time to time use the services of affiliates, subsidiaries and unrelated service providers in the operation of the Site, and may disclose personal information to them in the course of our use of their services. For example, we may use the services of third-party hosting companies to host the operation of the Site. This may involve the hosting of data, including personal information, on servers operated by those hosting companies. We take care to use only service providers that we believe are reputable, have equivalent or better security safeguards in place than us, and able to live up to our and your expectations, including about the handling of confidential information.
Legal Requests and Business Transitions; Emergencies. In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by governmental agencies, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We may disclose your personal information (a) to any governmental authority as part of an investigation to determine our compliance with any applicable law, rule, or regulation (including privacy laws, rules, and regulations), (b) in response to a court order, subpoena, discovery request, or other lawful judicial or administrative proceeding, (c) as otherwise required or permitted under any applicable law, rule, or regulation, and (d) in good faith, to protect or defend the rights or property of Emenator and other Users and (e) if Emenator is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.Non-Personal Identification Information
We may collect non-personal identification information about Users whenever they interact with our Site. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about Users’ means of connection to our Site, such as the operating system and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar information.Web Browser Cookies
Technologies such as cookies and similar technologies are used by Emenator and our partners, affiliates, or other service providers. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the Site, tracking Users’ movements around the Site and to gather demographic information about our User base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual, as well as aggregated basis.
We may also use personal information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyze Site usage, to improve our content and product offerings, and to customize the Site’s content, layout, and services. These uses improve the Site and better tailor it to meet your needs, so as to provide you with a smooth, efficient, safe and customized experience while using the Site. If you wish to subscribe to our newsletters, we will use your name and email address to send the newsletter to you. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide you a way to unsubscribe in the email. If you wish to no longer receive our newsletters you may update the settings in your account, follow the instructions located in the email, or you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.Protection of Your Information
Emenator strives to protect your personal information. For security of transactions, we use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts any information, such as credit card number and billing information, you send to us electronically. The encryption process protects your information, by scrambling it before it is sent to us from your computer. Once we receive your transmission, we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our system. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot and do not warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties through the Site, different rules may apply to their use, collection and disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them. Since we do not control the information use, collection or disclosure policies of third parties, you are subject to their privacy policies. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others, including to other Users.
At Emenator, we believe in membership, not censorship, but we do have some rules of conduct across our network that were designed in an attempt to ensure safety and preserve the user experience for all of our members. Thank you for using our Services. The Services are provided by DigiSocial LLC, a Florida limited liability company (“Emenator,” “we,” “us,” “our” and terms of similar meaning). This Agreement was written in English (US). To the extent any translated version of this agreement conflicts with the English version, the English version controls.
The Site provides a wide range of Services and, as such, we may ask you to review and accept supplemental terms and/or policies that apply to your interaction with a specific application, product, or service. By using such application, product, or service, you acknowledge and agree that you are consenting to and are bound by such terms and policies. You must follow any additional policies made available to you within an applicable Service. All such supplemental terms and/or policies are incorporated and made a part of this Agreement.
Emenator's TOP 20—This is the short list of very important rules that must be followed, including some things you absolutely cannot do when using Site or any of our Services:
You represent and warrant as follows:
You may need one or more Emenator Branded Account in order to use our Services. You may create your own Emenator Account(s), or your Emenator Account may be assigned to you by an administrator, such as your employer or educational institution. If you are using an Emenator Account assigned to you by an administrator, different or additional terms may apply and your administrator may be able to access or disable your account.
To protect your Emenator Account(s), keep your password(s) confidential. You are responsible for the activity that happens on or through your Emenator Account(s). Try not to reuse your Emenator Account(s) password(s) on third-party applications.
Unless there are extreme circumstances, it is understood that you, the individual member, are always responsible for the content shared and created through your Emenator account(s).
Individual claims of being “hacked” or having your account otherwise compromised does not absolve you of responsibility for content attributed to you via your account.
Registration and Account Security
With regard to registering and maintaining the security of your account, you represent and warrant to us as follows:
Any member may create a Site profile, but only Users with authority over the subject matter may own and/or manage the profile. You may not share login credentials for your profile. However, upon your request and our approval, we may authorize users who have authority over the subject matter to act as managers or to become an owner of your profile. Any such User must agree and accept these Terms before becoming a manager or owner. If you transfer ownership of your profile, you will no longer be able to take certain actions on the profile (such as deleting a profile, for example).
You may choose any name for your profile, as long as it complies with our Terms. Once you have selected a profile name, you may elect to change it; however, once your profile has a significant number of followers, we reserve the right to no longer allow a name change.5. Privacy
We comply with the safe harbor provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 512 (the "DMCA"). Each User acknowledges and agrees that we may terminate the privileges of any User who uses our Services to unlawfully transmit copyrighted material without a license, express consent, valid defense or fair use exemption to do so. Each User who submits, publishes, uploads, or makes content available to others on the Site, including pictures, images, music, code, or any other copyrightable work, must ensure that the content does not infringe the copyrights of third parties.
If you believe that your copyright has been infringed through the use of the Site or any of our Services, please submit a notice that complies with 17 U.S. C. § 512(c)(3) to our registered DMCA agent via email to email@example.com. Rather than emailing us, requests can be submitted in writing to our designated DMCA Agent: Victoria Swanson, 653 SW Little Talbot Court, Port St. Lucie, FL 34986. Mailing DMCA notices is strongly discouraged and may delay processing of your request.
Those submitting DMCA notices acknowledge and agree that our compliance with the DMCA should not be considered a promise, either express or implied, to remove any material from this Site. Removal is always done at our sole and absolute discretion.
At a minimum, DMCA notices must include at least the following things:
NOTE: If you submit a removal request and you are NOT the copyright owner, or if you make any false statement in your demand (including a statement that our use of images is infringing when the use is clearly fair), you should be aware that the law imposes substantial liability for any damages and any attorney’s fees incurred as a result. See 17 U.S.C. § 512(f).
For additional information on our DMCA Policy, you can review our entire DMCA Policy.7. Your Content in our Services
Some of our Services allow you to upload, submit, store, send or receive content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours. However, when you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you give us (and those we may choose to work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The permissions and rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services (for example, for a business listing you have added to Emenator Marketplace). By providing us with such content, you are representing and warranting that you are legally permitted to submit the content.
In addition to the foregoing license, you hereby authorize us to send takedown demands, pursuant to the United States' Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"), to any service provider hosting reproductions of the Materials that have been taken from the Site.
Our automated systems analyze your content to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customized search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection. This analysis occurs as the content is sent, received, and when it is stored.
At any time while you have an Emenator Account, we may display your profile name, profile photo, and actions you take on Emenator or on third-party applications connected to your Emenator account (such as +1’s, reviews you write and comments you post) in our Services, including displaying in ads and other commercial contexts. We will respect the choices you make to limit sharing or visibility settings in your Emenator account. For example, you can choose your settings so your name and photo do not appear in an advertisement.
We strive to take the rights of others seriously and we expect our members to do the same. You represent and warrant that you will comply with and/or consent to the following policies:
As part of your membership, Emenator gives you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use
