The Personal Identifying Information that we retain may include your account user name, password, name, address, telephone number, email address, birth date, and credit card number, as well as other personal information.
The Computer Tracking Data that we retain may include, without limitation, information regarding the number and frequency of visits to the Site, your activities on the Site, the websites that you access before and after you visit the Website, the software used to access the Site, your IP address and other Internet Service Provider related information. We may also record the location of your computer or mobile device at the time that you are interacting with the Site. FreeStartr may also use uses session “cookies” (text files such as html files, Flash files or other technology) to enhance the security and functionality of the Site. Web browsers often automatically accept cookies but you retain the ability to adjust your preferences through the settings on your browser.
How FreeStartr Uses Your Information
FreeStartr will only use the Personal Identifying Information or Computer Tracking Data internally in connection with the Services, including to personalize, provide, and improve the Services, to allow you to register and create a user account, to contact you, to allow other users to contact you, to fulfill your requests for certain services, to offer you information about upgrades, policy changes or other operational information, to analyze how you use the Services, and in the course of security analysis or routine maintenance. In certain cases, we may also share some of the Information with third parties, but only as described below.
Sharing of Non-Personal Identifiable Information
We may aggregate and/or anonymize information collected through the Service so that the information does not identify you. We may use this aggregated, anonymized, and other non-Personal Identifiable Information for any purpose, including for research and marketing purposes, including for providing targeted advertising to Site users, and our use and disclosure of such information is not subject to any restrictions under this Policy.
Sharing of Personal Identifiable Information; No Commercial Disclosure
We do not rent, sell or otherwise distribute any Personal Identifying Information in identifiable form to anyone. However, we may share your Personal Identifying Information with third parties as described in this section:
a. Affiliated Businesses: In certain situations, businesses or third party websites with which FreeStartr is affiliated may offer products or services to you through or in connection with the Services (either alone or jointly with us). If you do not wish to receive such communications, please submit your request in an email to [email protected].
c. Personal Identifying Information Disclosed in User Content: Any Personal Identifying Information that you voluntarily disclose online in a manner that other users can view (on discussion forums, in messages, and chat areas, etc.) may be displayed to other users. Your user name may also be displayed to other users if and when you send messages or comments on the Site, and other users may be able to contact you through messages and comments. Any Information posted to the Site in connection with the publication of any Campaign will be displayed to other users.
d. Business Transfers: If FreeStartr (or substantially all of its assets) is acquired, or if we cease business operations, commence bankruptcy, or experience some other change of control, Information could be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
Identifying Information; Subpoenas and Legal Process
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY: IT MAY SUBSTANTIALLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.
FreeStartr will not disclose without your consent, any Personal Identifying Information about you that we retain. FreeStartr will not automatically disclose information demanded by third parties solely because Freestartr might receive a subpoena. FreeStartr will comply with its legal obligations and with its policy regarding subpoenas. Our policy regarding our compliance with any subpoenas and/or legal process is as follows:
a. A third party seeking Personal Identifying Information about you must serve FreeStartr with a subpoena issued by an appropriate state or federal court with valid jurisdiction over the matter.;
b. On receipt of any such subpoena, FreeStartr will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide you with notice of the subpoena, so that you may seek legal counsel. Freestartr will not act as your attorney, and Freestartr will not “fight the subpoena” for you. It will be incumbent upon you to exercise your legal rights and defenses in connection with any such subpoena, and to do so in a timely manner.
c. In the event that you do not wish FreeStartr to disclose or turn over the requested information set forth in a subpoena, it is solely your responsibility to intervene or challenge the validity and/or enforcement of the subpoena by taking the applicable legal action. It will not suffice for you to simply instruct Freestartr not to comply with the subpoena. You must initiate and proceed with proper legal action. Freestartr advises you that you should contact an attorney immediately to obtain advice and counsel as to any such subpoena. You must timely notify FreeStartr of the legal actions that you take and provide proof of any such actions.
d. IN THE EVENT THAT YOU OR YOUR ATTORNEY DO NOT IN A TIMELY MANNER PROVIDE FREESTARTR WITH PROOF THAT YOU HAVE INITIATED THE APPROPRIATE LEGAL ACTIONS IN RESPONSE TO ANY SUCH SUPOENA, FREESTARTR WILL BE OBLIGATED TO COMPLY WITH THE SUBPOENA.
FreeStartr is obligated to and shall comply with any court order arising from any legal action brought against FreeStartr or in which FreeStartr is a party, including the disclosure of Personal Identifying Information.
FreeStartr may in its sole discretion, unilaterally provide Information in compliance with a law enforcement agency’s demand or request if such disclosure will materially aid in the prevention of imminent and serious harm to others’ physical safety or property. Participants will receive a notification from FreeStartr of such disclosure, unless the law enforcement agency making the demand or request notifies FreeStartr in writing that such notification to Participants would be illegal, or would unreasonably interfere with or otherwise jeopardize their investigation and/or increase the risk of harm to a person’s physical safety.
FreeStartr is Not Your Lawyer
California Privacy Rights
Pursuant to California Civil Code Sections 1798.83-1798.84, California residents are permitted to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their Personal Identifiable Information (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the types of Personal Identifiable Information disclosed to those parties. Please note that Freestartr is not a California company, and it is unclear whether the foregoing California laws apply to Freestartr in any given situation. If you are a California resident and would like to request this information, please submit your request in an email to [email protected]. Freestartr reserves the right to determine that it is not subject to such California legislation in any given instance.
We take reasonable precautions to protect your Information from loss, misuse or alteration. We maintain reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards for your Information.

We are not liable for any breach of our systems or interception of our transmissions, and we hereby disclaim, to the fullest extent provided under all applicable laws, any liability associated with any claim relating to a breach of security, data or information.

When you make any such changes, however, we may maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records.
