1. Information You Provide and We Collect
When you register to be a Member of Sqeeqee and/or use Sqeeqee’s services, you volunteer to provide us with individual personal information – such as your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number and, possibly, a credit card number (“Personal Identifiable Information”). Sqeeqee Members may also choose to provide or store additional information in their profiles, including but not limited to date of birth, interests, hobbies, lifestyle choices, groups with whom they are affiliated (schools, companies), videos and/or pictures, private messages, bulletins or personal statements (collectively “Profile Information”). We also collect information on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our website. This data is used to manage and improve the services we provide, track usage, and for security purposes. This website is a general audience site and is intended for those thirteen (13) and older. We do not knowingly collect information from children under thirteen (13) years of age.
2. Cookies and Pixel Tags: What They Are and How We Use Them
We collect information by using cookies and pixel tags. A cookie is a small piece of information that a website can send to your browser and may then be stored on your computer’s hard drive. It acts as an anonymous tag that identifies your computer, but not you personally. Cookies have the ability to store information about web pages viewed, advertisements viewed, save your user information and screen preferences and allows us to determine whether you have installed the enabling software needed to access certain material on the Sqeeqee Services. Data in cookies may also be used to authenticate user sessions, to provide services or to customize the content and advertising you receive based on the Profile Information you provide.
A pixel tag is a tiny image inserted in a webpage (not on your computer) and used to record the number and types of views for that page. Sqeeqee may allow third party pixel tags to be present on Sqeeqee services for purposes of advertising, providing services or data and statistics collection. Pixel tags usually work in conjunction with cookies.
Together, cookies and pixel tags allow us to provide better customer service by enhancing the navigation, security and functionality of the website, to personalize your experience, and for us to learn how we can improve.
3. Links to Other Websites, Advertisers and Third Party Applications: Be Aware
Third party applications (such as widgets) are small bits of software, often with interactivity, that can be installed into Members’ profiles or shared with other users. However, Sqeeqee does not control these third party developers, and cannot dictate their actions. When a Member engages with a third party application, that Member is interacting with the third party developer, not with Sqeeqee. Sqeeqee encourages Members not to provide Personal Identifiable Information to the third party’s application unless the Member knows the party with whom it is interacting.
4. Your Cookie Choices
You can program your computer to warn you each time a cookie is being sent, block third party cookies or block all cookies. However, by blocking all cookies you may not have access to certain features on the Sqeeqee Services.
5. Our Pledge
6. How We Use The Information You Provide
The Sqeeqee search engine or other search engines may index the portion of a Member’s profile (including the Profile Information it contains) that is publicly displayed. If you have consented to receive promotional materials (e.g., newsletters) or notifications from Sqeeqee, Sqeeqee may periodically use your email address to send you such materials related to the Sqeeqee Services, as applicable. If you want to stop receiving such materials from Sqeeqee, you can change your profile settings under “Account Settings,” or follow the “unsubscribe” instructions at the bottom of each email.
Sqeeqee employees, agents and contractors must have a business reason to obtain access to your Personal Identifiable Information. Sqeeqee may share your Personal Identifiable Information with those who help manage or provide Sqeeqee services’ information activities (for example, message board administration, order fulfillment, statistical analyses, data processing), or with outside contractors, agents or sponsors who help us with the administration, judging and prize fulfillment aspects of contests, promotions and sweepstakes. Outside contractors, agents or sponsors may temporarily store some information on their servers, but they may only use your Personal Identifiable Information to provide Sqeeqee with a specific service and not for any other purpose. Sqeeqee may also provide your Personal Identifiable Information to a third party in those instances where you have chosen to receive certain information and have been notified that the fulfillment of such a request requires disclosure.
Sqeeqee also may share your Personal Identifiable Information with affiliated companies if we have a business reason to do so. Sqeeqee may customize the advertising and marketing messages you receive on this website, or may work with outside companies to do so. Your Profile Information may be shared with these companies so this customization can be accomplished. Sqeeqee prohibits these companies from sharing your Profile Information with any third party or from using it for any other purpose. Anonymous “clickstream” (a record of a user’s activity), number of page views calculated by pixel tags, and aggregated demographic information may also be shared with Sqeeqee’s advertisers and business partners.
Sqeeqee reserves the right to allow access or disclosure to your Personal Identifiable Information and Profile Information in order to: (i) protect or defend the legal rights or property of Sqeeqee, our Affiliated Companies or their employees, agents and contractors (including enforcement of our agreements); (ii) protect the safety and security of our users or members of the public, including acting in urgent circumstances; (iii) protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or (iv) comply with the law or a legal process.
Should Sqeeqee sell all or a portion of its business or makes a sale or transfer of all or a material part of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business, Sqeeqee may transfer your Personal Identifiable Information to the party or parties involved as part of that transaction.
7. European Union
When a Member who is located in the European Union chooses to post Profile Information that will be publicly disclosed, that Member is responsible for ensuring that such information conforms to all local data protection laws. Sqeeqee is not responsible under the EU local data protection laws for Member-posted information.
Sqeeqee uses commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard your Personally Identifiable Information in our possession against unauthorized use or disclosure.
9. Access and Making Corrections
You have access to the information you provide and we encourage you to make sure the information you provide us is correct and up to date. Sqeeqee Members can review, make changes or corrections to the registration information and any Profile Information at any time, as well as control how Visitors, other Members and Sqeeqee communicate with you by logging into your account and accessing features such as “Edit Profile” and “Account Settings.” We will take reasonable steps to correct information that a Member informs us is incorrect.
10. Wish to Stop Being a Member?
Once you inform us that you wish Sqeeqee to stop using your Personal Identifiable Information, we will honor that request while retaining any records that are necessary to comply with applicable federal, state or local law.
