Effective Date – March 23, 2022
Please note the arbitration provision set forth below, which may, except where and to the extent prohibited by law, require you to arbitrate any claims you may have against SACUBO on an individual basis. ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS MEANS THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE, AND YOU WAIVE, THE RIGHT FOR A JUDGE OR JURY TO DECIDE YOUR CLAIMS, AND THAT YOU MAY NOT PROCEED IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY.
When you use the Sites, we collect both personal information and non-personal information. “Personal information” is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. “Non-personal information” may include technical information that does not identify an individual personally. We note that over time, non-personal information could become personal information through regulatory developments, technological advancements, or co-mingling with personal information. The types of personal information we collect from you depends on the features you use on the Sites. In particular, we collect the following information from and about you:
You have choices about the information we collect. When you are asked to provide personal information, you may decline. However, if you choose not to provide information that is necessary to provide a product or service, you may not be able to use some of our features, products, or services.
We collect and store the personal information from you directly, at the time you supply information to us via the Sites. For instance, if you sign up for a membership or contact us with a question, we may store your communications, including any personal information you include in them, so we can effectively respond to you. If you do not want us to collect your personal information, please do not provide it to us.
We may collect information passively while you are visiting or interacting with the Sites. We call this “passive” collection because you may not know that this information is being collected. Here are some examples of the information that is collected via the Sites and a description of how this information is used:
We use, and allow certain third parties to use, cookies and other similar technologies to provide our services and to help collect information. We, or third parties, may use session cookies or persistent cookies. Session cookies only last for the specific duration of your visit and are deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies remain on your device’s hard drive until you delete them or they expire. Different cookies are used to perform different functions, which we explain below:
There are several ways to manage cookies. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser. If you block certain cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other members or users of our Sites. We also note that by blocking or deleting cookies which are “strictly necessary,” you will not be able to access certain features of our Sites.
In the United States (US), the Network Advertising Initiative also offers a means to opt-out of a number of advertising cookies. Please visit www.networkadvertising.org to learn more. Note that opting out does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the company or companies from which you opted-out will no longer deliver ads tailored to your preferences and usage patterns.
We use your personal information collected on the Sites primarily for the following purposes:
Non-personal information is used in the same ways as described above and in other ways as permitted by applicable laws.
We process personal information per applicable law and with transparency and fairness. The legal bases for the processing activities listed above are as follows:
We may share or disclose your personal information in the following instances and to the following parties:
We use non-personal information collected on the Site in the manners disclosed above and for other reasons. We may share this non-personal information with third parties.
The Sites are not intended for use by persons under the age of 13, or 16 in the European Union (EU). SACUBO does not knowingly collect information from visitors under the age of 13, or 16 in the EU, and, in the event that we learn that a person under the age of 13, or 16 in the EU, has provided us with personal information, we will delete such personal information.
We communicate with members and users who subscribe to our services on a regular basis via email. For example, we may use your email address to send you notice of payments, information about changes to our products and services, and other disclosures as required by law. Generally, members and users cannot opt-out of these communications, but they will be primarily informational in nature rather than promotional. However, we provide you the opportunity to opt-out of marketing communications from us, such as emails or updates regarding new services and products offered on the Sites or if you do not want us to share your personal information with third parties, by clicking the “unsubscribe” link within the text of the email or by contacting us at 1.800.462.4916 or email@example.com. We will process your unsubscribe as soon as possible, but please be aware that in some circumstances you may receive a few more messages until the unsubscribe is processed.
Please note that any information you include in a message you post to any chat room, forum, or other public posting area is available to anyone with access. If you do not want people to know your email address, for example, do not include it in any message you post publicly. PLEASE BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL WHEN DISCLOSING ANY INFORMATION IN CHAT ROOMS, FORUMS, AND OTHER PUBLIC POSTING AREAS. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE USE BY OTHERS OF THE INFORMATION THAT YOU DISCLOSE IN CHAT ROOMS, FORUMS, AND OTHER PUBLIC POSTING AREAS.
If you choose to provide us with personal information, it will be stored in the US and may be stored in other jurisdictions. SACUBO may transfer that information to its third-party service providers, affiliates, and subsidiaries, across borders, and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. If you are visiting the Sites from the EU or other regions with laws governing data collection and use, please note that your personal information is transferred to the US and may be transferred to other jurisdictions. The US does not, and these other jurisdictions may not, have the same data protection laws as the EU and may not afford many of the rights conferred upon data subjects in the EU. With knowledge of these risks, you acknowledge that:
We provide you with the opportunity to access your personal information to ensure it is correct, accurate and up to date. To edit your personal information, please contact us at 1.800.462.4916. We will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.
For residents of the EU, you have the right to:
In the event that all or part of our assets are sold or acquired by another party, or in the event of a merger, you grant us the right to assign the personal and non-personal information collected via the Sites.
No data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you understand that any information you transfer to SACUBO is done at your own risk.
Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure security on our systems. If we learn of a security systems breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Sites or providing personal information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Sites. We may post a notice on our Sites if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
Notice shall be sent to:
Both you and SACUBO agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent that must be satisfied before initiating any litigation or filing any claim against the other party. IF ANY DISPUTE CANNOT BE RESOLVED BY THE ABOVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURE, YOU AGREE THAT THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION FOR SUCH DISPUTE WILL BE DECIDED BY BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS MEANS THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE, AND YOU WAIVE, THE RIGHT FOR A JUDGE OR JURY TO DECIDE YOUR CLAIMS, AND THAT YOU MAY NOT PROCEED IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. Other rights that you and we would have in court will not be available or will be more limited in arbitration, including discovery and appeal rights. Any such Dispute shall be exclusively submitted to JAMS (www.jamsadr.com) for binding arbitration under its rules then in effect, before one arbitrator to be mutually agreed upon by both parties.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits visitors to the Sites who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us at 1.800.462.4916.
We do not share personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you consent to such disclosure, typically by “opting-in” to receive information from a third party that is participating in a sweepstakes or other promotion on our Sites. If you do ask us to share your personal information with a third party for its marketing purposes, we will only share information in connection with that specific promotion, as we do not share information with any third party (other than our service providers) on a continual basis.
At this time our Sites do not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, which may include “Do Not Track” instructions.
