How We Use Information and When We May Share Information Generally
From time to time, we may establish business relationships with other businesses who we believe are reputable and who have confirmed that their privacy practices are consistent with ours (“Service Providers“). For example, we may hire Service Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, data storage and management and marketing. We only provide our Service Providers with the information necessary for them to perform these services for us. Each Service Provider must agree to use reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information involved, in order to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Service Providers are prohibited from using Personal Information other than as specified by Panoptica.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement
Panoptica cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose Personal Information and any other information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties if, in our discretion, we believe it’s necessary or appropriate in order to respond to legal requests (including court orders and subpoenas), to protect the safety, property or rights of Panoptica or any other party, to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity or to comply with the law.
Be Careful When You Share Information with Others
Please be aware that whenever you share information on a publicly available profile page or any other public forum on the Panoptica Site, that information may be accessed by others. In addition, please remember that when you share information in any other communications with third parties, that information may be shared or made public by others. This means that anyone with access to that information can potentially use it for any purpose, including to send unsolicited communications.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of information transmitted to us. However, no data transmission over the Internet or any other network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. So while we work hard to protect information transmitted on or through the Panoptica Site or Services, we cannot and do not guarantee the security of any information you transmit on or through the Panoptica Site or Services, and you do so at your own risk.
