How we gather information from users.
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. You can visit many pages on our site without providing any information. Other pages may prompt you to provide information, such as when you register for access to portions of our site, sign up for membership, request certain features (e.g., newsletters, updates, and other products), or make a purchase. You may also provide information when you participate in sweepstakes or contests, voting and polling activities, and other interactive areas of our site. SOTA.ORG may combine information that we collect with information we obtain from third parties and affiliates.
In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but doing so may limit your ability to access certain portions of the site or may require you to re-enter your user name and password, if applicable. Additionally, we may not be able to customize the site's features according to your preferences. Finally, information you post to public areas of the site is not private, and such information is not covered by this policy. Do not post personal information to public areas of the site unless you intend to make that information public.
What we do with the information we collect.
Personally identifiable information collected by SOTA.ORG may also be used for other purposes including but not limited to site administration and troubleshooting. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service or ad serving services, for example), or who provide email management, third-party content, billing, processing, shipping, promotions management or other services also may access such information.
SOTA.ORG may aggregate and/or anonymize information collected by SOTA.ORG or through the site, so that the information does not identify you. As one example, we may combine information about your navigation or usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited most or what features on our site are most attractive. We may use aggregated and/or anonymized information, and may disclose it to Affiliates and third parties, without limitation.
Information sharing and disclosure.
We may rent, sell, or share personally identifiable information about you with non-Affiliated companies in order to provide services or products that you have requested, when we have your permission, or as described in this policy, including under the circumstances provided below. Please note that we may not provide you with any notice prior to the types of disclosures listed below.
We may share your information with any Affiliate or our agents who may provide services or communicate with you on our behalf.
We may disclose your information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or to defend against legal claims.
We may also share your information, whether aggregated and/or anonymized or not, with any third-party advertisers and/or contractors with which SOTA.ORG or an Affiliate may have a relationship.
As Planet Connex continues to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets.
We will never sell your Personal Information to any third party not affiliated with Planet Connex or SOTA.org without your consent except in connection with the sale or merger of Planet Connex .
Aggregated Information may be shared with any number of parties, provided that such information shall not specifically identify any individuals.
How we protect information.
SOTA.ORG attempts to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of your personal information. Our servers are protected by reasonable physical and electronic security measures.
