We routinely collect data such as users' demographic, preference, and other personal information as well as other statistics from our Services including usage data related to retail product, retail product-related content, Digital Folio tools, and promotion response. When a user registers for our Services or uses certain features of our Services, we may collect his/her personal information such as username/email address and password. Each user is required to provide such personal information upon Digital Folio Services registration in exchange for standard use of available Digital Folio Services
Currently unforeseen developments may require us to request additional personal information from users in the future. While the input of such additional personal information will be optional, some future Digital Folio Services may not function correctly without such input.
All personal information is collected and analyzed so we may provide all our users with optimal service. Such information is used not only to track and provide analytics, but to expedite service inquiries. Future Digital Folio newsletters or other marketing or promotional materials also may be distributed via user-provided personal information. An opt-out option for all such communications from us will always be offered.
Non-personal information also may be collected and provided to third parties for their general information regarding typical use of our Services. Such non-personal information ordinarily includes non-identifiable aggregate, summary, usage data, and other behavioral data such as statistics regarding total users, information regarding types of Internet browsers used by users, and behavioral usage patterns. We also collect non-personal information about each user's IP address to help diagnose server problems and to administer our Services.
Log Data includes information sent by a user's browser such as the user's computer's IP address, referring HTTP address, current HTTP address, time of access, and other statistics. Each time a user visits our web sites or uses our Services, our servers record and collect Log Data sent by his/her browser. We use Log Data to monitor and analyze the use of our Services, for technical administration, to increase our Services and Tool's functionality, and to better tailor our Services to user needs.
In the future Log Data also may be collected each time a user visits third-party websites serving content that uses our Services. Log Data from such websites may be collected and combined with other non-personal information in the creation of reports and data we and third-party sites may use to create or enhance specific products, services, or advertising.
Digital Folio does not link Log Data to any personal information or use Log Data in an attempt to determine a user's identity.
Any user who registers for Digital Folio Services by providing personal information certifies that he/she is over the age of 13. We do not collect or maintain personal information from individuals we know are under 13 years of age; no part of our Services is designed to attract people under age 13. If we obtain knowledge that a user of our Services is under age 13, we will remove that user's personal information from our databases and prevent the user from signing onto our Services in the future.
In order to save a user's registration information for future logins, Digital Folio uses browser cookies on our Services. We also use browser cookies to allow us to better understand how users interact with our Services and to monitor traffic routing that involves our Services. We also use browser cookies to collect Log Data as described in the Log Data section above. Any computer user can instruct his/her browser to stop accepting browser cookies or to post a prompt before accepting a cookie from any website.
A Digital Folio user whose computer is set up to not accept browser cookies may not be able to access all portions of our Services or all functionality of our Services.
We do not share personal information collected via our Services, including email addresses, with third parties for their direct marketing or solicitation.

Such Log Data analysis may be conducted in the study of items such as usage patterns, behavioral patterns, or traffic and demographic analysis, or to enable advertisers to target appropriate audience segments.
In addition to a user's username, any user comments or submissions ("Unsolicited Information") posted via our Services may be made publicly available. All such Unsolicited Information will be deemed non-confidential; Digital Folio will be free to reproduce, use, disclose, and distribute such Unsolicited Information to others without limitation or attribution. Any such Unsolicited Information can be collected and used by others. A user, for example, who posts his/her email address in a comments section or online forum may receive unsolicited email messages. Digital Folio has no control over the use of any such personal information voluntarily posted or otherwise disclosed via our Services. We suggest Digital Folio users not disclose personal information via user comments or submissions.
In the future, we may employ third-party companies or individuals to facilitate our Services, provide our Services on our behalf, or perform services related to the administration of our Services (including, without limitation: maintenance, hosting and database management services, and administration). In such a case, such third parties may be given access to users' personal information and Log Data as needed to perform these tasks on our behalf. They will be obligated not to disclose or use such information for any other purpose.
Digital Folio cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We disclose users' personal information and Log Data to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to:
In the future our Services may contain links to other third-party websites and services. If a user chooses to click on a third-party link, he/she will be directed to that third party's website or service. The fact that we link to a website or service is not an endorsement, authorization, or representation that we are affiliated with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third-party websites or services. Third-party websites may place cookies or other files on a user's computer, collect data, or solicit personal information. They also may follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of personal information submitted to them. We encourage all users to read the privacy policies or statements of all websites they visit.
While Digital Folio endeavors to provide reasonable security for information in our possession and control, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches. For this reason, we bear no liability for uses or disclosures of personal or non-personal information arising in connection with the theft thereof. Each user is responsible for safeguarding the confidentiality of his/her password to our Services. For this reason, we also bear no liability for access to or use or disclosure of personal information if such access, use, or disclosure arises in connection with the theft or disclosure (whether intentional or negligent) of a user's password.
