1. The Information We Collect And Store
We may collect and store the following information when running the Put It Forward Service:
Information You Provide. When you register an account, we collect some personal and or company information, such as your name, phone number, credit card or other billing information, email address and home and business postal addresses. When you invite others to join Put It Forward by using our referral page, we send them a one-time email for that referral. We may also receive Personal Information (for example, your email address) through other users, for example if they have tried to share something with you or tried to refer Put It Forward to you.
Files and Data. We collect and store the files you upload, download, or access with the Put It Forward Service (“Data”) only if you configure it to be persisted (E.g. in the event of doing some analytics on the data set) or if the targeted receiving system is unable to be reached at the time.
Log Data. When you use the Service, we automatically record information from your Device, its software, and your activity using the Services. This may include the Device’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, the web page visited before you came to our website, information you search for on our website, locale preferences, identification numbers associated with your Devices, your mobile carrier, date and time stamps associated with transactions, system configuration information, meta-data concerning your Data, and other interactions with the Service.
Cookies. We also use “cookies” to collect information and improve our Services. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your Device. We may use “persistent cookies” to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the Service. We may use “session ID cookies” to enable certain features of the Service, to better understand how you interact with the Service and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Service. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all aspects of the Service.
Data Segmentation. Your configuration, data and any logic used in the management of your data is yours and is never blended, shared or made public with any other user or client of Put It Forward in normal operating circumstances that don't conflict with other parts of this agreement.
2. How We Use Personal Information

3. Information Sharing and Disclosure
Your Use. We will display your Personal Information in your profile page and elsewhere on the Service according to the preferences you set in your account. All information remains private to you only - it is not shared with any other users with the exception of your user administrator who may initially set up your account. You can review and revise your profile information at any time. We do not sell your personal information to third parties. We may also share or disclose your information with your consent, for example if you use a third party application to access your account (see below).
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement Requests; Protection of Put It Forward's Rights. We may disclose to parties outside Put It Forward data stored in your Put It Forward account and information about you that we collect when we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with a law, regulation or compulsory legal request; (b) protect the safety of any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of Put It Forward or its users; or (d) to protect Put It Forward’s property rights. If we provide your Put It Forward files to a law enforcement agency as set forth above, we will remove Put It Forward’s encryption from the files before providing them to law enforcement. However, Put It Forward will not be able to decrypt any files that you encrypted prior to storing them on Put It Forward.
Non-private or Non-Personal Information. We may disclose your non-private, aggregated, or otherwise non-personal information, such as usage statistics of our Service.
4. Changing or Deleting Your Information
If you are a registered user, you may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information provided in your registration or account profile by changing your “account settings.” If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may update or delete it by making the change on your account settings.

5. Data Retention
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services.

We may retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Our Site may include links to other Web sites whose privacy practices may differ from those of Put It Forward. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy statements. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy statement of any Web site you visit.
The security of your information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
We follow generally accepted standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
