We may also employ third parties and individuals to perform certain functions on our behalf including helping us operate the EquityArcade® Offerings and/or to administer related activities. Examples include payment processing, sending direct and electronic mail, removing duplicate information from end-user lists, analyzing data and providing marketing analysis. The agents performing these limited functions on our behalf shall have access to our end-users' personal information as needed to perform their functions for us, but we do not permit them to use your personal information for other purposes.
We will also use your personal information for customer service, to provide you with information that you may request, to customize your experience on the Site and/or in the App and/or to contact you when necessary in connection with transactions entered into by you through the EquityArcade® Offerings.

Action Tags, Web Beacons and other Data Collection Methods: An action tag or a web-beacon (also known as a clear gif or a pixel tag) is a method used to track responses or actions by visitors who view certain advertisements and/or other information on the Site and/or App, as applicable. Action tags are 1x1 pixel images embedded in a website page that are used to transparently collect information. We may use action tags to count the number of times that visitors click on a particular banner ad or visit the pages of the Site and/or App, as applicable, and to provide information about what offerings, products and/or services are viewed, selected and/or purchased, as applicable. We reserve the right to retain this action tag data indefinitely.
The EquityArcade® Offerings may contain links to other third-party owned and/or operated websites including, but not limited to, Social Media Websites and the websites of our Registered Users and/or Third Party Providers. EquityArcade® is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. In some cases, you may be able to make a purchase through one of their third-party websites. In these instances, you may be required to provide certain information, such as a credit card number, to register or complete a transaction at such website. These third-party websites have separate privacy and data collection practices and EquityArcade® has no responsibility or liability relating to them.
We endeavor to safeguard and protect our end-users’ personal information. When end-users make personal information available to us, their personal information is protected both online and offline (to the extent that we maintain any personal information offline). Where our registration/application process prompts end-users to enter Sensitive Information (such as credit card or bank account information), and when we store and transmit such Sensitive Information, that information is encrypted with advanced TLS (Transport Layer Security).
Access to your personal information is strictly limited, and we take reasonable measures to ensure that your personal information is not accessible to the public. All of our end-users’ personal information is restricted in our offices, as well as the offices of our third party service providers. Only employees or third party agents who need end-user personal information to perform a specific job are granted access to end-user personal information. Our employees are dedicated to ensuring the security and privacy of all end-user personal information. Employees not adhering to our firm policies are subject to disciplinary action. The servers that we store end-user personal information on are kept in a secure physical environment. We also have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of personal information under our control.
Please be advised, however, that while we take every reasonable precaution available to protect your data, no storage facility, technology, software, security protocols or data transmission over the Internet or via wireless networks can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Computer hackers that circumvent our security measures may gain access to certain portions of your personal information, and technological bugs, errors and glitches may cause inadvertent disclosures of your personal information; provided, however, that any attempt to breach the security of the network, our servers, databases or other hardware or software may constitute a crime punishable by law. For the reasons mentioned above, we cannot warrant that your personal information will be absolutely secure. Any transmission of data at or through the Site, App, other EquityArcade® Offerings or otherwise via the Internet or wireless network, is done at your own risk.
In compliance with applicable federal and state laws, we shall notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your personal information. You will be notified via e-mail in the event of such a breach. Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage, and to engage in remedial measures.
No information should be submitted to, or posted by and/or through, the Site and/or App by visitors under eighteen (18) years of age (or the applicable age of majority, if greater than eighteen (18) years of age). Persons eighteen (18) years of age (or the applicable age of majority, if greater than eighteen (18) years of age) are not permitted to access the EquityArcade® Offerings and we do not knowingly collect personal information from such individuals. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate and monitor the interactive activities of their children.

At your request, we will: (a) inform you of what personal information we have on file for you; (b) amend the personal information that we have on file for you; and/or (c) remove personal information that you have provided to us, or that we have collected. You may do so by contacting us via e-mail at: email@example.com; provided, however, that we ask individuals to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, amended or removed before processing such requests and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes).
Please be advised that deleting your personal information may terminate or limit your ability to utilize certain of the EquityArcade® Offerings. If you wish to utilize the EquityArcade® Offerings without any hindrance or limitation, you may not delete the personal information that we have on file for you.
Please be further advised that, after you delete your personal information, residual copies may take a period of time before they are deleted from our active servers and may remain in our backup systems.
To opt-out of receiving e-mail communications from us, you can follow the instructions at the end of the applicable e-mail message or e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
E-mail messages are prepared for delivery several days in advance, so end-users may continue to receive e-mail from us for up to ten (10) days following the unsubscribe procedures detailed above. In addition, after unsubscribing, we cannot guarantee that you will never receive another mailing from us, because we may obtain your e-mail address in the future through a different EquityArcade® program that you have opted in to. If, after that point, an end-user is still receiving e-mail from us, the end-user should contact us at: email@example.com.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may continue to contact you for purposes of communicating information relating to your request for EquityArcade® Offerings, as well as to respond to any inquiry or request made by you.
