You expressly agree and consent to the use and/or transfer of your Personal Information or other information in connection with a sale or transfer of some or all of our assets in any of the above described proceedings. Furthermore, we cannot and will not be responsible for any breach of security by any third parties or for any actions of any third parties that receive any of the information that is disclosed to us.

We may also disclose your Personal Information with your permission or as directed by you.

Member Profile, Password and Security

For certain features available through the Web Properties, we may require the use of encryption technologies provided for your protection and/or Member Profile. We use reasonable precautions to protect the privacy of your username, password and Member Profile information and to ensure that information collected through the Web Properties is not lost, misused or altered inappropriately by administering security measures.

You are ultimately responsible for protecting your username, password and Member Profile information from disclosure to third parties, and you are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies. You agree to: (a) immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your username, password and/or Member Profile, and/or any other breach of security; and (b) ensure that you log out from your Member Profile at the end of each session.

While we may provide certain encryption technologies and use other reasonable precautions to protect your confidential information and provide suitable security, we do not and cannot guarantee or warrant that any information transmitted through the Internet is secure, or that such transmissions are free from delay, interruption, interception or error. RealMHWorks takes reasonable measures in an effort to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information that we obtain from you, but we make no assurances about our ability to prevent any such loss, misuse or alteration.

We are not and cannot be responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any of those websites. Other than under agreements with certain reputable organizations and companies, and except for third party service providers (as described in this Privacy Policy), we do not share any of the Personal Information that you provide to us with any of the websites to which the Web Properties links, although we may share aggregate, non-personally identifiable information with those other third parties.

Choices with Your Personal Information

Whether you submit or disclose any Personal Information to us is entirely up to you. You are under no obligation to provide us with your Personal Information. However, this information is essential for the provision and quality of some of the services we offer to you, so we cannot provide you with certain services or provide you with access to certain features (e.g., providing you access to chat rooms and messaging boards) if you choose to withhold requested information.

You may choose to prevent us from disclosing or using your Personal Information under certain circumstances (“opt out”). You may opt out of any disclosure or use of your Personal Information for purposes that are incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or for which you subsequently gave authorization by notifying us by one of the methods at the end of this Privacy Policy, if applicable, or by following the procedures set forth in an electronic communication from us, if applicable. Furthermore, even where your Personal Information is to be disclosed and used in accordance with the stated purposes in this Privacy Policy, you may elect to opt out of such disclosure and use by a third party that is not acting as our agent, if applicable. There are some uses from which you cannot opt out, such as to provide products, features or services that you have requested from us.

Access and Correction

Please contact us in the manner specified at the end of this Privacy Policy to access your Personal Information in our possession and correct inaccuracies of that information in our records. We ask individuals to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed and amended before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests in limited circumstances, as permitted by applicable privacy legislation.

Your California Privacy Rights

Under California’s “Shine the Light” law, California residents who provide certain personally identifiable information in connection with obtaining products or services for personal, family, or household use are entitled to request and obtain from us (once per calendar year) information about the customer information we shared (if any) with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses. If applicable, this information would include the categories of customer information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared customer information for the immediately prior calendar year (e.g., requests made in 2017 will receive information regarding 2016 sharing activities, if any).

To obtain this information, please send an email message to [email protected] with “Request for California Privacy Information” in the subject line and in the body of your message. We will provide the requested information to you at your email address in response.

Your Consent to This Privacy Policy

By using the Web Properties, you consent to the collection and use of your information (including, but not limited to, Personal Information and Usage Information) by us as specified above or as we otherwise see fit, in compliance with this Privacy Policy, unless you inform us otherwise by means of the procedure identified below.

Your use of the Web Properties following such publication of any amendment of this Privacy Policy will signify your assent to and acceptance of its revised terms for all previously collected information and information collected from you in the future. We may use comments, information or feedback that you may submit, including those posted on our bulletin boards, chat rooms or the like, in any manner that we may choose without notice or compensation to you.
