This privacy statement explains the privacy practices of Pose POS, Ltd. (“Pose”) for users of the Services. If not specifically defined herein, capitalized terms have the meaning given to them in the Pose Service Agreement, which are available at http://www.getpose.com/service-agreement
Pose’s Commitment to Privacy
Pose respects your right to privacy. Your ability to make informed choices about the uses of your and your customers’ information is important to us. This privacy statement explains Pose’s policy regarding the collection, use, disclosure and protection of Personal Information. The terms of this privacy statement apply to information collected from you unless different terms are specified as part of a special offer or in another form or contract we provide you.
What is Personal Information?
Personal Information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity such as a customer’s name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, or information about activities directly linked to that person, such as his or her purchases. Personal Information also includes information that you may choose to provide to us, such as your educational, employment history profile.
Personal information does not include “aggregate” information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of products, services or customers, from which individual customer identities have been removed. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service, but no Personal Information will be included in the resulting data. Likewise, information about the products or services you use or purchase may be collected and combined with information about the products and services used or purchased by others, but no Personal Information will be included in the resulting data. Aggregate data helps understand trends and customer needs so that new products and services can be considered and so existing products and services can be tailored to customer desires.
Collection of Personal Information
We collect Personal Information that you provide us, such as when you: register to use the Services; place an order or purchase products or services; or contact us for any reason.
We may automatically collect some information when you use the Services, such as your computer’s IP address, operating system, the site from which you linked to us, and the time and date of your visit, purchases and activities. We also collect information received from third parties to the extent that they have entered into an agreement with you as a result of your relationship with Pose.
Use of Personal Information
The Personal Information we collect is used to process your requests or transactions, to provide you high quality service, to customize your use of the Services according to your preferences, and to tell you about specific goods or services we believe will be of interest to you. If you prefer not to receive promotional information from us, we make it easy for you to let us know. You can contact us at any time to decline promotional information (see under the heading “Choice” below).
Sharing of Personal Information
Pose does not sell, rent, share, or disclose Personal Information to third parties without your prior consent, except in the limited circumstances described in this statement.
We may provide to a third party certain information that is necessary to fulfill an order you have placed with us. For example, if you or your customers pay by a credit or debit card, your card number and sales transaction information is passed on to the card processor. Pose is not responsible for any additional information you provide directly to these parties, and we encourage you to become familiar with their practices before disclosing information to them.
In addition, we may disclose Personal Information in the good faith belief that we are required to do so by law, or that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, respond to any claims, or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Pose, our customers, or the public. Information about our customers, including personal information, may be disclosed as part of, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets or acquisition.
Protection of Personal Information
Pose has put into place security measures in an effort to protect personal information from loss, misuse or alteration while it is under our control. Personal information we collect is stored electronically and may be combined with other membership information. We use technical, contractual, administrative and physical measures in an effort to protect against unauthorized access.
Further, when you enter personal information online, that information is encrypted using a security software called SSL (Secure Socket Layer). SSL encrypts all information before it is sent over the Internet. We also use SSL to allow you to securely view your online account and registration information.
Account information is accessible online only through the use of a password. To protect the confidentiality of Personal Information, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. If other people have access to your email, they may be able to obtain access to your password and obtain personal information about you (such as your credit card information), or change information about your user profile. You may not want to use an email account operated by an employer because many employers have the legal right to access such email accounts.
By registering you agree to receive messages from Pose. If at any time you wish to stop receiving promotional information from Pose, you may opt out by:
- E-Mailing us at email@example.com
- Accessing your registration information and checking the box that allows you to opt out of receiving promotional emails.
Pose appreciates the importance of safeguarding the privacy of your personal information that may be provided to us. However, Pose does use and disclose de-identified aggregate information (including de-identified aggregate information of any customers of yours) for the purposes of evaluating and improving our services and tailoring our products. In addition, Pose may choose at its sole discretion to transfer, sell, provide or share such information with third parties, including to Pose’ business partners for commercial purposes, and by providing any information to Pose you consent to such provision of de-identified aggregate information to any third party.
