Last Updated: 2018-09-23

This Privacy Policy relates to the Websatchel services (the “Service(s)”) of Empiritek Group, Inc. (“we” “us” or similar pronouns)

GENERAL NON-DISCLOSURE POLICY: WE DO NOT DISCLOSE OR SHARE YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION TO ANY THIRD PARTY (EXCEPT SOLELY TO PROVIDE THE SERVICES TO YOU – E.G. TO OUR DATA CENTER PROVIDER), WITHOUT YOUR OPT IN FOR SUCH DISCLOSURE. Please see the section entitled “HOW DO WE DISCLOSE AND USE YOUR INFORMATION?” below for complete details.

GENERAL NON-USE POLICY: WE DO NOT USE YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION EXCEPT SOLELY TO PROVIDE THE SERVICES TO YOU WITHOUT YOUR OPT IN FOR SUCH OTHER USES. Please see the section entitled “HOW DO WE DISCLOSE AND USE YOUR INFORMATION?” below for complete details.

This is the privacy policy of Empiritek Group, Inc. (the “Company”), and explains the Company’s data collection, use and disclosure practices, including the collection, use and disclosure of information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate an individual person (“Personally Identifiable Information”). Personally Identifiable Information does not include, however, any information that you post or make available publicly, unless a specific applicable law protects such information.

Unless otherwise stated below, this Privacy Policy applies to all websites and applications we may provide, including applications that run natively on a computer or a mobile device. If an application also has its own Privacy Policy, to the extent that there are any conflicts, that application specific Privacy Policy will supersede any provisions of this Privacy Policy. 

GENERAL: PRIVACY POLICY EFFECTIVENESS; CHANGES TO POLICY

This Privacy Policy is a part of the Terms of Service ("TOS") set forth at Terms of Service, which are incorporated herein by reference. Capitalized terms herein not otherwise defined shall have the meaning set forth in the TOS. This Privacy Policy is updated as of the date set forth above. We reserve the right to update this Privacy Policy. If we update this Privacy Policy, we will use reasonable electronic efforts to advise You of the change, which may include posting a notice of the change on the website or application, in or near a login area, or we may send You an electronic notification of the change. If we electronically notify You by an electronic communication, we will provide these electronic messages to your last known or provided electronic communication address (which may be for example, a text message address, email address, twitter user name, Facebook address or other electronic address). You are responsible to review communications we send to those addresses, to authorize communications from us and to keep those addresses up to date. Use of the website or application after our notice of a change in the Privacy Policy is acceptance of the terms and changes in the updated Privacy Policy, which shall, unless expressly prohibited by applicable law (or unless expressly stated in such changed Privacy Policy), be effective from the inception of your use of the website or application.

WHAT DATA DO WE COLLECT?

Automated data collection: Our website and applications use standard web and software technologies to collect certain non-identifying information about your computer or device – which may include such information as your browser and computer type, your internet protocol address, the type of device you are using, and other information that your device sends to our website or application automatically. Our website and applications may also automatically set “cookies” – small files that contain information that allow the website or application to track certain information such as where you were referred from, which pages you have clicked on, and other analytical information about your use of the website or application. Collectively this information is referred to as “Automated Data.” We do not link or associate Automated Data we collect with your Personally Identifiable Information. We may use and disclose Automated Data in any manner we choose without restriction. You have some ability, by using browser plugins, ad blockers, or other third party tools, to block or prevent some collection of Automated Data, however, our website or applications may not function correctly if you do so. We make no guarantees of any kind that our website or applications will function correctly in any particular environment or with any plugins or other tools.

Manual data collection: When using our Services such as by ordering or registering, you may be asked to enter Personally Identifiable Information such as your email addresses, phone numbers, mobile device number, text message and/or social media contact information, physical mailing address, and other similar billing and communication information (“Contact Information”). 

Third party data collection. We may also obtain information from third parties and we may combine that with Automated Data and/or Contact Information. For example, we may have access to certain information from a third-party social media service if you create or log into your online account through that service or otherwise provide us with access to information from that service. We will only access third party information in this manner consistent with the application program interface (API) provided by the third party and consistent with the settings you have used in allowing such use.

HOW DO WE DISCLOSE AND USE YOUR INFORMATION?

We may process, use and disclose the information we collect from or about you in the following ways:

  • To process orders you make for our products or Services.
  • To work with our service providers such as web hosting companies, internet service providers, data centers, programmers and other service providers we use to be able to make the website and applications available to you.
  • To communicate with you about our products or Services or the products and services of third parties (however, please see below as to your rights to limit some of these communications)
  • With your opt-in, to provide your Contact Information to third parties who may have products or services that we recommend or state are compatible with our products or Services. You have the right to limit or terminate this use of your Contact Information.
  • To defend or bring any claim from/against you arising from our interactions;
  • To meet a legal requirement (see below under “Compelled Disclosure”)
  • To provide such information to our successor in a sale of our business or other change of control (see below under “Sale of Business”)
  • To remove malware and viruses, and to remove content that violates our Acceptable Use Policy (see below under “Virus removal”)

Compelled Disclosure. We will comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, which may require that we disclose your information (including your Personally Identifiable Information) to government authorities, or to parties in court actions under subpoenas or court orders, or otherwise as we are advised we are required to do to comply with a legal obligation. We are a United States based company and subject to the laws of the United States, however, we may use servers and storage of data in locations in other parts of the world. 

Sale of Business. We may disclose your any of your information, including but not limited to your Contact Information and Personally Identifiable Information, to a corporate successor in interest if we sell our business, or engage in a merger, sale of stock, or our company’s ownership otherwise changes control and you consent to this transfer. We, or our successor, will provide you with notice of such a transaction, and the successor will be bound on the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Virus removal. We may, but are not responsible to, use a virus or malware scanner and scan website data you have archived, and if our virus scanner detects malware, we reserve the right to remove it. Please note that a scan may mis-identify data as a virus, and so it is possible that portions of archived websites may not be available if our scanner takes this action. In addition, if we determine that you are archiving malware sites, software used in illegal hacking or attack efforts, or otherwise storing content that is harmful to computers or data, we reserve the right to suspend and/or terminate your account.

Right to limit some communications. Applicable laws, such as the CAN SPAM law (see https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/topics/limiting-unwanted-calls-emails), may give you rights to limit some non-relationship communications. We will comply with such laws. Be aware, however, that you cannot limit certain communications with us, such as communications regarding transactions and orders, notices regarding updates to our TOS or this Privacy Policy, or other communications regarding our business relationship with you.

THE DATA MAY YOU STORE AND HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION AND LIMITS ON YOUR DATA SHARING RIGHTS?

You may store text and images from publicly available web sites using the Service, but you may not store (and the Service will not download) movies or music files.

We will use reasonable commercial effort to keep your information secure in our systems, however, you acknowledge that no system is hacker proof and that despite our reasonable efforts, your information could be accessed by unauthorized persons. In this regard, we will use the efforts required by applicable laws, rules, regulations and orders that apply to the specific types of information we have. Notwithstanding the above, you agree that we will not be liable for any unauthorized access to or use of your data or information except solely to the extent we are expressly held to have violated applicable laws, rules, regulations or orders.

When you use our Service, you cause our software to download a copy of most of the website you have designated to read offline or archive, and our Service then indexes that site and makes that copy available for your personal use offline. Your data is stored encrypted. Access to that data is limited to you, for your personal use and you may not share that data or further disseminate or publish it. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR LOSS OR MISUSE OF YOUR CREDENTIALS TO THE SERVICES WE PROVIDE, AND WE DO NOT MONITOR OR LOG SUCH ACCESS NOR WILL WE GIVE YOU NOTICE OF ANY COMPROMISE OF YOUR DATA. If we do detect such compromise, or you violate our Acceptable Use Policy, we may immediately suspend Services to you and/or terminate your account. 

YOU MAY NOT use our Service to archive sensitive sites such as bank sites or sites that you access after authenticating on such site, or to store sensitive personal information using our Services – our Services are designed to store general public web pages you visit for offline searching, archival and review by you. 

For example, do not store financial account information, medical information, login passwords, access keys or credentials or other types of sensitive information (the “Sensitive Information”). We are NOT RESPONSIBLE for loss of Sensitive Information or any archived website information, and in addition, we do not access or use any of your stored website information, and therefore cannot assist you in notifying anyone whose Personally Identifiable Information or Sensitive Information was stored on our Service at your direction. 

THIRD-PARTY PRIVACY POLICIES AND SERVICES

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website or applications. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies.

We are not responsible for the privacy policies or acts of such third party advertisers, or their data collection, tracking, use or security policies. 

There are technological tools and plugins you can use to block or prevent some and possibly all such third party advertiser tracking and data collection. Some advertisers and data collection companies permit you to opt out of their third party data collection.

For example, users can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out of some advertising tracking by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative Opt Out page (currently at http://optout.networkadvertising.org/) or by using an applicable browser add on.

Malicious or threatening e-mail is also prohibited. Normally we will assume that you are in compliance with this provision, however, if an upstream provider blacklists our IP range or mail server as a result of activities we trace to you, we will presume that you are in violation of this provision.

The above list of acceptable and unacceptable uses of the Services is not intended to be exhaustive, but rather illustrative of the range of unacceptable uses. We have the right in our sole discretion to determine whether any particular conduct is an acceptable use of the Services. In cases where we determine you engaged in conduct that you reasonably believed did not violate this policy in good faith, we will endeavor to provide you electronic notice of our determination that such conduct is not an acceptable use, and provided you cease such conduct not later than 24 hours after such notice, you will not be considered to be in breach of this Acceptable Use Policy.
