2. Information Collected About You

2.1       Information Collected: there are various types of information that 3LP collects about you when you register with, interact with, or otherwise use our Service. Some of this information is provided voluntarily by you and other information is provided through automated processes under 3LP’s control.

2.2       Information Provided By You: in addition to personally identifiable information (“PII”) provided during the 3LP registration process (e.g. name, address, etc.), you may also provide us PII during the following non-exhaustive list of representative classes of interactions on our Service:

a) requesting customer support and sending 3LP similar communications;
b) making payments to 3LP for various offerings;
c) signing up for 3LP email alerts, newsletters, and similar special offers;
d) responding to 3LP surveys and other special information requests; and
e) communicating with 3LP regarding our compliance with applicable law.

2.3       Information Provided By Automated Processes: 3LP may automatically collect non-PII pertaining to you when you use our Service including, but not limited to, when you use our Service via mobile and other access devices. 3LP may use cookies, web beacons, log files and similar methods to collect non-PII:

a) Cookies: a cookie is data stored in a small text file on your local access device that contains data about you. The information in the cookie is used to uniquely identify you and other users of our Service. The cookie may contain a token linked to our databases in order to provide you an enhanced feature set. It identifies a particular user at a particular point in time. You have the option of resetting your browser to reject cookies. If you choose to do so some Service functionality may not be available to you;

b) Beacons: a web beacon is used to enable communications with third parties. It is a small image in an HTML page with all dimensions set to one (1) pixel. Because of its insignificant size, it is not visible. It is used to pass certain non-PII anonymously to third-party sites, usually advertisers;

c) Logs: a log file is a system created file that captures certain interactions between you and our Service.

2.4       Non-PII Reservation of Rights: 3LP reserves the right to adopt alternative methods for collecting non-PII consistent with the provisions of this Policy and without providing further notification to you, other than what is contained herein.

3. Implications Regarding Collected Information

3.1       Consent Regarding Data Storage and Transfer: your use of our Service implies your consent to have your PII and non-PII (“Data”) (i.e. any Data provided by you to 3LP via our Service or through other mechanisms) stored, transferred and processed within the United States, or in any other country in which 3LP or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities. By providing us with your Data and using our Service you consent to any such transfer of Data outside of your country of origin, in 3LP’s sole discretion.

3.2       Control and Access to Data: 3LP respects both the need for you to control your Data and our users’ need for sharing it with us. 3LP is diligent in ensuring that it has implemented appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to prevent the unauthorized or unlawful use of your Data, and to prevent any accidental loss, destruction, or damage to such information.

3.3       Use of Data Collected: 3LP is the sole owner of the Data (i.e. as represented by the aggregate content and arrangement of the information collected about you on our Service) and will not sell, rent or share the information collected in a manner that differs from what is disclosed in this Policy. 3LP collects this information in order to:

a) enforce our Terms of Use;
b) detect, investigate and otherwise address fraud, security or technical breaches or related matters; or
c) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property, or safety of 3LP, its users, or the public at large, as required or permitted by law.

3.5       Sharing of Payment Data: 3LP may share transaction information with our third party payment processor (“Payment Processor”) and our third party shopping cart provider (collectively “Payment Partners”) when you make purchases on our Service. The information shared with our Payment Partners is limited to the information required by our Payment Partners to complete the payment transaction. 3LP does not capture or store the financial information provided by you to our Payment Partners via our Service. 3LP only stores the results of said transactions as provided via notifications from our Payment Partners to us upon the completion of a payment transaction.

3.6       Sharing of Data with Other Third Parties: In addition to disclosing information to our Payment Partners, 3LP may disclose your PII  to other third-party service providers (“Providers”) who perform services on our behalf. Examples of such Providers may include, but are not limited to, data storage and web hosting companies, as well as consultants we may engage for various reasons. 3LP requires Providers to use and protect your PII  consistent with the provisions of this Policy.

4. Security of Information

4.1       Any information sent by you to 3LP through Internet, e-mail, or through our Service may not be secure and is therefore done on a non-confidential basis and at your own risk. Once such information is received, 3LP takes appropriate security safeguards to prevent its unauthorized use, alteration, disclosure or destruction. These safeguards include periodic review of our internal processes, and benchmarking of same with industry best practices.

4.2       Access to PII is restricted to 3LP employees, contractors, and agents on a need to know basis. Such individuals are generally bound by confidentiality agreements and may be subject to termination and criminal prosecution should they fail to comply as required by said agreements and/or with the contents of this Policy.

5. Data integrity

5.1       3LP processes PII only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with the provisions in this Policy. Reasonable steps are taken to ensure the quality of the PII that 3LP collects, processes, and stores. 3LP depends on its users to keep their PII current and accurate. 3LP conducts periodic reviews to ensure that only the PII required by our Service is captured and used consistent with the provisions of this Policy. The maintenance of data integrity is a joint collaborative effort between 3LP and our users.

5.2       3LP may delete data, from time to time, upon the request of an individual user. 3LP requires that a user present proper credentials for authentication before honoring all such requests. Good faith attempts are made to work with individual users regarding data related issues. 3LP reserves the right to refuse such requests when they prove unduly burdensome and/or are impractical. 3LP will not delete data required to be kept by applicable law or data otherwise required by 3LP for legitimate business reasons.

6. Choices Regarding PII

6.1       Should 3LP decide to use PII other than for the purpose originally collected, 3LP will do so only with your consent. You will be given the opportunity to opt-out of any such use. Should 3LP become involved in a sale, acquisition, or any form of transfer of some or all of its assets, then 3LP will provide notice to you before your PII is subject to a new or different privacy policy.
