Personally Identifiable Information

“Personally Identifiable Information” is contact or non-public information that is used or intended to be used to identify a specific individual. In general, the Personally Identifiable Information Company gathers enables Company to process your orders and provide services. Company requires that you provide certain Personally Identifiable Information, including your name and e-mail address, in order to create an “Account”. Company may also ask you to provide certain optional Personally Identifiable Information with registration, such as your age and gender, to help Company learn more about the use of this website.

Company may collect Personally Identifiable Information through this website. When you do certain things on this website, such as creating an Account, sharing costs, ordering a service from Company or its partners, submitting content, filling out a survey, posting a review, sending Company or its partners feedback, requesting information about Company’s services, submitting an affiliate agreement, posting a picture, or signing up for special offers from third parties through this website (collectively, “Identification Activities”), Company may ask you to provide additional Personally Identifiable Information about yourself. It is optional for you to engage in an Identification Activity, but certain activities require information before you can engage in that activity.

Company may use third party payment processors to collect and/or process this information on its behalf.

One of the services Company provides is the Site’s interface with http://www.facebook.com (“Facebook”), through which you may make certain Personally Identifiable Information available to Company. You may restrict and edit the Personally Identifiable Information that you make available to Company by editing your privacy settings on Facebook. Company does not collect or record any Personally Identifiable Information provided through Facebook unless you expressly request Company to do so or authorize Company to do so in order to provide you certain services (e.g., requesting membership information or a newsletter subscription). Company may collect the information about your use of the application on Facebook or that you otherwise make available through Facebook. If you wish to modify Company’s access to the information you make available through Facebook, you should modify your privacy settings on Facebook.

Company may use Personally Identifiable Information to provide products and services to you, administer your Account, process your payments, provide you with services and customer support, enhance the operation of this website, improve its marketing and promotional efforts, analyze use of this website, improve its product and service offerings, tailor your experience with certain third parties, troubleshoot issues, resolve disputes, accomplish administrative tasks, communicate with you, enforce its agreements with you, including the Terms and Conditions, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information is information that is not used or intended to be used to identify a specific individual. This type of information may include things like the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) of the website you visited before coming to this website, the URL of the website you visit after leaving this website, the type of browser you are using and your Internet Protocol address. Company, and/or its authorized third party service providers and advertisers, may passively collect this information when you visit this website through the use of electronic tools like Cookies (defined below) and web beacons.

Company uses Non-Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, administer this website, analyze trends, improve its internal operations and the content of its software, notify visitors about updates to this website, customize content for you, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities. Company may use this information to contact consumers, on a non-personally-identifiable basis for marketing purposes, and allow third parties to do the same. Company may also share this information with third parties to measure and improve the overall effectiveness of its online advertising, content, and programming.

Company may combine Non-Personally Identifiable Information with certain of your Personally Identifiable Information, but Company will provide you with notice thereof prior to such combination and offer you the opportunity to opt out of such aggregation. Company may also de-identify or anonymize your Personally Identifiable Information (thereby creating Non-Personally Identifiable Information).

Releasing Personally Identifiable Information

Company will only release your Personally Identifiable Information with other parties in the following situations:

Vendors. Company may share some of your Personally Identifiable Information with vendors with whom you have engaged in an Identification Activity. Sharing this Information may allow vendors to market directly to you should they choose to do so.

Authorized Third Party Service Providers. Company provides services and products through third parties. These “Third Party Service Providers” perform functions on its behalf, like sending out and distributing its administrative and promotional e-mails. Company may share your Personally Identifiable Information with such Service Providers to fulfill orders, deliver products and services, send postal or e-mail messages, remove repetitive information on customer lists, analyze data, provide marketing assistance, provide search results and links, process credit card payments, operate this website, troubleshoot, and provide customer service for Company.

Business Transfers. As with any other business, Company could merge with, or be acquired by another company. If this occurs, the successor company would acquire the information Company maintains, including Personally Identifiable Information. However, Personally Identifiable Information would remain subject to this Privacy Policy. Company may also disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to a parent company, any subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under a common control (collectively, “Affiliates”), in the event Company has such Affiliates in the future, in which case Company will require its Affiliates to honor this Privacy Policy.

Protection. Company reserves the right to disclose your Personally Identifiable Information as required by law and when it believes in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect its rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on this website; enforce or apply this Privacy Policy, this website’s Terms and Conditions or other agreements; or protect the rights, property or safety of this website, its users or others.

Facebook Connect. This website allows users to access Facebook to interact with friends and to share on Facebook through Wall and friends’ News Feeds. Once you have connected with Facebook through this website, you will be able to post recent activity on this website automatically back to Facebook, and you authorize Company to disclose and make such information available through Facebook. If you wish to modify our ability to share your information through Facebook, you should modify your privacy settings on Facebook.

Otherwise. Company does not currently sell your Personally Identifiable Information or otherwise disclose it (except as specifically described above), but Company reserves the right and may sell such Personally Identifiable Information in the future to third parties, including to third parties whose products or services Company believes will be of interest to you.

Generally. This Privacy Policy addresses Company’s use and disclosure of information it collects from and/or about you on this website. If you disclose information to others, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. The use and disclosure restrictions contained in this Privacy Policy will not apply to any third party. Company does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. Please be aware that any Personally Identifiable Information you make available to Company on Facebook may also be made available generally on Facebook, including to third parties, pursuant to your privacy settings on Facebook. Similarly, please be thoughtful about your privacy settings. This website may contain links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by Company, including Company’s partner sites. Company has no control over, does not review and is not responsible for the privacy policies of or content displayed on such other websites. When you click on such a link, you will leave this website and go to another site. During this process, another entity may collect information from you.

Releasing Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Company reserves the right to disclose Non-Personally Identifiable Information publicly without restriction, including to third party vendors who may help Company enhance or provide this website to third parties.

Updating and Correcting Your Information

Company provides you the right to access and edit the Personally Identifiable Information you provide Company. You may change any of your Personally Identifiable Information by signing into your account and accessing the “Profile” section of the site and by sending an e-mail to Company at support@planningsimple.com. When you contact Company, please indicate your name, e-mail address, and the information you would like to update.

Company encourages you to update your Personally Identifiable Information promptly if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, because Company keeps track of past transactions, you cannot delete information associated with past transactions on this website. Company may also be required (by law or otherwise) to keep this information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case Company will comply with your deletion request only after Company has fulfilled such requirements). When Company deletes Personally Identifiable Information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in its archives and Company may also retain Non-Personally Identifiable Information about your use of Company’s services. Once Company discloses some of your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties, Company cannot access that Personally Identifiable Information any longer and cannot force the deletion or modification of any such information by the parties to whom Company has made those disclosures.

If you choose to store Payment Information on the site, then it will be stored on a secure page and you may delete your Payment Information at any time by going to your profile.

Company may send you both administrative and promotional emails. You cannot opt-out of “Administrative E-mails”, which relate to your activity on this website, and include communication regarding your Account, requests or inquiries, and purchases of products and services. In contrast to Administrative E-mails, however, you do have a choice with respect to Promotional E-mails. “Promotional E-mails” from Company advertise Company’s or third party’s products and services, including exclusive discounts and other offers.
