Purpose and Scope
Collection and Use of Information
You do not have to register to visit the Site. However, some of the features offered through the Site may require you to register and provide certain information. Your registration information is used to provide and administer the service you request. We may also use the information to help us understand our customers and to tailor and enhance our product and service offerings. If you register to use some of the features or services on the Site or contact us through the Site, you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information ("Personally Identifiable Information") about yourself. This data may include, but is not limited to, your name, address and other demographic information (such as city or zip/postal code), professional data (such as company name and job title), telephone number, and email address.
Direct Swap may store and process your Personally Identifiable Information in order to identify you when you log in to your account on the Site and to facilitate your purchase of our services. We or our service providers may also use your Personally Identifiable Information to contact you. For example, we may respond to your comments or requests for information, we may ask you for feedback on products and services and may send you marketing or promotional materials or other information if you provide us Personally Identifiable Information for the express purpose of receiving such materials. If you wish to stop receiving information concerning our services or products, please contact us by email at email@example.com to notify us of your wishes.
We will not disclose, trade, rent, sell or otherwise transfer your Personally Identifiable Information, without your consent, except as otherwise set forth herein. To enable us to more efficiently provide the services you have requested from us, Direct Swap may share your Personally Identifiable Information with selected third parties who are acting on our behalf as our agents, suppliers, or providers, or these third parties may collect your Personally Identifiable Information on Direct Swap's behalf. You acknowledge that the collection, transfer, storage, and processing of your Personally Identifiable Information may be undertaken by these selected third parties for the purpose for which the data was collected. Our service providers are given the information they need to perform their designated functions, and we do not authorize them to use or disclose Personally Identifiable Information for their own marketing or other purposes. Links to the Site may be featured on third party websites on which we advertise. Except as provided herein, we will not provide any of your Personally Identifiable Information to these third parties without your consent.
We and our service providers may process and use data that is not personally identifiable for a variety of purposes including, but not limited to, providing you with better service, administering the Site, planning Site development, assessing patterns of use, and planning and assessing marketing initiatives. To the extent that we link any non-Personally Identifiable Information with Personally Identifiable Information, we will treat such linked information as Personally Identifiable Information.
