These proposed Privacy and Security Policy will be effective September 30, 2014
6Q is committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and security of any personal information about our users. This Privacy & Security Policy explains how we protect personal information provided through 6Q and its Service (the “Service”) via https://6q.io.
“Personal information” for purposes of this Policy means information that identifies you, such as your name, address, phone number, fax number or email address.
6Q stresses its privacy and security standards to guard against identity theft and provide security for your personal information. We regularly re-evaluate our privacy and security policies and adapt them as necessary to deal with new challenges.
WE LIMIT THE COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Certain areas and features of 6Q are available to you without registration or the need to provide to us any information. However, other features of the Site or the Service may require registration, which involves providing your email address and a password (collectively the “Registration Information”).
From time to time we may request other personal information to provide you with other benefits of the Service.
Such information does not identify you individually. Access to your Registration Information, Account Credentials, Account Information and any other personal information you provide is strictly restricted and used in accordance with specific internal procedures and safeguard governing access, in order to operate, develop or improve the Service. These individuals have been selected in accordance with our security policies and practices and are bound by confidentiality obligations.
They may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations. We may also use third party vendors or service providers to help us provide the Service to you, such as sending email messages on our behalf or hosting and operating a particular feature or functionality of the Service.
Our contracts with these third parties outline the appropriate use and handling of your information and prohibit them from using any of your personal information for purposes unrelated to the product or service they’re providing. We require such third parties to maintain the confidentiality of the information we provide to them.
CHANGES TO YOUR REGISTRATION INFORMATION
If your Registration Information changes during your subscription to 6Q, you may update it any time via the Service.
ONLINE SESSION INFORMATION AND USE IS ONLY USED TO IMPROVE YOUR EXPERIENCE
When you visit 6Q, we may collect technical and navigational information, such as computer browser type, Internet protocol address, pages visited, and average time spent on our Site. This information may be used, for example, to alert you to software compatibility issues, or it may be analysed to improve our Web design and functionality.
“Cookies” are alphanumeric identifiers in the form of text files that are inserted and stored by your Web browser on your computer’s hard drive. 6Q may set and access cookies on your computer to track and store preferential information about you. 6Q may gather information about you through cookie technology. For example, 6Q may assign a cookie to you, to limit the amount of times you see a particular 6Q Offer or to help better determine which 6Q Offers to serve to you. Please note that most Internet browsers will allow you to stop cookies from being stored on your computer and to delete cookies stored on your computer. If you choose to eliminate cookies, the full functionality of the Service may be impaired for you.
We encode our cookies so that only we can interpret the information stored in them.
Web beacons are images embedded in a Web page or email for the purpose of measuring and analysing site usage and activity. 6Q, or third party service providers acting on our behalf, may use Web beacons to help us analyse Site usage and improve the Service.
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION TO PROTECT OUR RIGHTS OR IF REQUIRED BY LAW
Notwithstanding the foregoing, 6Q reserves the right (and you authorise 6Q) to share or disclose your personal information when 6Q determines, in its sole discretion, that the disclosure of such information is necessary or appropriate:
To prevent prohibited or illegal activities; or
When required by any applicable law, rule regulation, subpoena or other legal process.
YOUR DATA MAY BE TRANFERRED UPON CHANGE OF CONTROL BY ONLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS POLICY
Personal information may be transferred to a third party as a result of a sale, acquisition, merger, reorganisation or other change of control. If we sell, merge or transfer any part of our business, part of the sale may include your personal information. If so, you will be asked if you’d like to continue receiving promotional information following any change of control.
YOU CAN TRANSPORT OR DELETE YOUR DATA
Your data is yours. You can remove it anytime you want. When you request us to delete your account for the Service, your data will be permanently expunged from our primary production servers and further access to your account will not be possible. We will also promptly disconnect any connection we had established to your Account Information and delete all account credentials. However, portions of your data, consisting of aggregate data derived from your Account Information, may remain on our production servers indefinitely, where such data cannot identify you in any way. Your data may also remain on a backup server or media, however such data will be in a format that cannot identify you as a person. 6Q keeps these backups to ensure our continued ability to provide the Service to you in the event of malfunction or damage to our primary production servers. We also reserve the right to use any aggregated or anonymous data derived from or incorporating your personal information.
EMAIL COMMUNICATIONS FROM US
We provide our registered customers with weekly polls and email alerts. We also allow users to subscribe to email newsletters and from time to time may transmit emails promoting 6Q or third-party goods or services.
6Q subscribers have the ability to opt-out of receiving our promotional emails and to terminate their newsletter subscriptions by following the instructions in the emails. Opting out in this manner will not end transmission of service-related emails, such as email alerts.
YOUR DATA IS SECURE
We use a combination of firewall barriers, encryption techniques and authentication procedures, among others, to maintain the security of your online session and to protect 6Q accounts and systems from unauthorised access.
When you register for the Service, 6Q requires a password from you for your privacy and security. 6Q transmits information such as your Registration Information for 6Q or Account Credentials securely.
No employee may put any sensitive content on any insecure machine (i.e., nothing can be taken from the database and put on an insecure laptop). 6Q tests the Site regularly for any failure points that would allow hacking.
OUR SERVICE ENSURES SECURE COMMUNICATION WITH ENCRYPTION
From the time you submit your Login ID and Password, these communications between your computer and 6Q are encrypted. This enables client and server applications to communicate in a way that is designed to prevent eavesdropping, tampering and message forgery.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Login ID and Password
If you have a security related concern, please contact us at [email protected]. We will work closely with you to ensure a rapid and personal response to your concerns.
WE POST UPDATES ON OUR WEBSITE WHENEVER THERE IS A CHANGE TO THIS POLICY
