What kind of data we collect.

 

We collect information such as:

 

(a) Contact and demographic data. If you make a purchase or sign up for a service, we may collect your first and last name, email address, address, phone number, and other similar contact data.

 

(b) Account credentials. We collect passwords and similar security information used for authentication and account access.

 

c) Usage data. We collect data about how you use our products and services. This includes, but is not limited to, data such as the search terms you enter, the pages you visit, the links you click on, and the items you purchase. We may also collect data about your device such as IP address, device identifiers, and data about the network, operating system, or software you use to connect to our products and services.

 

(d) Location data. If you have enabled location-based features of our services, we may collect location data, such as GPS coordinates. We may also collect the location associated with your IP address.

 

When you are asked to provide personal data, you may decline. But if you choose not to provide data that is necessary to provide a product or service, you may not be able to use some features or services.

 

How we collect data.

 

The data we collect depends on the services and features of our products that you use. You provide some data directly, such as when you create an account, submit a search query, or contact us for support. Our servers collect information known as “log data,” that includes your IP address, the time your computer or device visited the site, the URL of the Web site you arrived from, and the type of device or browser you used to access the site.

 

How we use the data we collect.

 

We use data to provide and improve useful services and customer support to our users. We may use data to resolve disputes and enforce our agreements, and to protect our users against fraud and abuse. We may also use data to send you communications, including promotional communications, or to serve advertising to you.

 

How and why we share data we collect.

 

We only share data with trusted vendors with whom we have a relationship to provide services you have requested or authorized. For example, when you provide payment data to make a purchase, we will share payment data with entities that process payment transactions, and for fraud prevention and credit risk reduction. Similarly, if you request for data available from a third party, we will pass along your request to enable them to provide you with the data. We share data with vendors working on our behalf to provide customer service and analytics. We may transfer data as part of a corporate transaction such as a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, or sale of assets.

 

We may share data when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to comply with applicable law, to respond to a legal process, such as a subpoena, or to help prevent the loss of life or serious injury of anyone. Under certain circumstances, applicable law may prohibit or require us to provide you with additional notice regarding sharing of data. We may, unless legally required to provide you notice, disclose data in response to a subpoena without giving you notice. Finally, we may provide access to non-personally identifiable information to our third-party advertisers so that they can deliver relevant online and mobile advertising to you.

 

How we protect your data.

 

We have implemented commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security.

 

You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer/phone, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.

 

How you can access and control your data.

 

You may use your account to access, correct, or change any personal information that you have provided to us or that is associated with your account. You may also email our customer support team at care@IkotaSC.com. We will respond to your request within 30 days. Please note that your ability to correct or change your personal information does not extend to information provided by third parties.
