(together, our “Sites”), both of which are owned and operated by Crowdfunding Offerings, Limited, a Colorado corporation. You will find the following information in this statement:


Information We May Collect

We may collect the following Personal Information about you provided at the time you register and engage in activities on our Sites:

As is true of most websites, we gather certain other non-identifying data automatically and store it in files on our servers. This data may include IP addresses, browsers being used, ISP identification, referring and exit pages, the operating systems you are using, date and time stamps on your activity, and how you use our Sites among other things. This data is used for site administration and to analyze the traffic on our Sites. We do not connect this data to individual user accounts.

How We Use the Information We Collect

We do not sell, rent or license your Personal Information to anyone. This applies to both current and former members of our Sites.

We use the Personal Information we collect from you and your account activities:

Disclosure of Your Information

We may disclose your Personal Information, as permitted by law, to non-affiliated third parties that help us provide services to you or in connection with your account. This includes third parties who may provide statements of your accounts, handle monetary transfers and provide transaction confirmations, and provide custody, depository, and record keeping services. All non-affiliated third parties that accept or receive your Personal Information from us are obligated contractually or by law or regulation to keep this information confidential and to use the information only to provide the services we ask them to perform.

We disclose personal information to government and regulatory agencies and to comply with a lawful summons, court order, subpoena, fraud investigation, audit or regulatory examination.

In addition to the above, we may disclose your personal information to third parties under the following conditions:

Access to Your Personal Information

If your Personal Information changes, or if you no longer desire our services, you may correct, update, amend, delete/remove or request it be deleted by making the changes in your account settings, by e-mailing our Customer Support at support@mainstreetcrowd.com, or by contacting us by telephone or postal mail at the address listed below. We will respond to your request within 30 days. Any changes in your Personal Information other than those you make in your account Settings and any requests you have that involve us manually accessing your account to provide you with the Personal Information we have on file may be subject to a fee to cover our costs in providing you with that information.

We will retain your Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will also retain and use your Personal Information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements, which in some cases involving the collection and processing of financial data may require a retention period of 7 years.

If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter(s), we will use your name and e-mail address to send the newsletter to you. Out of respect for your privacy, you may choose to stop receiving our newsletter or marketing e-mails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these e-mails, accessing the e-mail preferences in your account settings page or you can contact us at support@mainstreetcrowd.com.

Similarly, you have the right to ask us not to use your Personal Information for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your Personal Information for such purposes, or if we intend to disclose your Personal Information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by selecting the appropriate options on your account Settings page or by contacting us by e-mail at support@mainstreetcrowd.com.

How We Use "Cookies"

We may gather data about your usage of our Sites by using cookie files which are stored on your computer if your browser is enabled to accept cookies. We use both first-party and third-party cookies. Cookies help us maintain the security of your account and are required to access certain areas of our platform and to perform certain functions. Cookies also help us understand how you are using our Sites so we may deliver better and more personalized service to you. They enable us:

NOTE: Cookies are not used to collect or distribute any personal identifying information. You can manage the placement of cookies from our Sites and others through the features found in your browser. You can also delete cookies that have already been placed on your computer. Consult the “Help” function of your browser to learn about these options.

NOTE: If you elect to block cookies with your browser settings, you may be unable to access certain sections or information on our Sites and may be unable to perform certain functions. Unless you have set your browser to block cookies, our platform may place cookies when you log on to our Sites. We suggest that you configure your browser to accept cookies from our Sites.

How We Secure Your Personal Information

All the Personal Information you provide to us, either through forms within our Sites or via e-mail, phone or postal mail, is stored on secure servers. The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as bank account information) on our forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that restrict access to your Personal Information.

We follow generally accepted standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. Your use of our Sites is at your own risk. If you have any questions about security on our Sites, you can contact us at support@mainstreetcrowd.com.

Where you have chosen a password to use in accessing member-only areas of our Sites or in engaging in member-only activities, you are responsible for the overall “strength” of your password (within our specifications) and for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone, always log out of your account when leaving, and close your web browser when you finish a session, especially if you are on a public computer.

For more information on ways in which we secure your information, please consult our Security Policy.

Additional Privacy Information

Public Discussion Threads

Our Sites offer a discussion feature within our projects, offerings, and clowdz that is accessible to all members. You should be aware that any information you provide in this area may be read, collected, and used by others who access that feature. Do not provide any of your Personal Information to anyone in an open discussion. If you feel that your Personal Information has been disclosed in a discussion thread, contact us at support@mainstreetcrowd.com to request removal of the information from the discussion. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why, and removal does not guarantee that another individual has not already collected the disclosed Personal Information.

Referrals

If you choose to use a referral service we may offer to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend’s name and e-mail address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time e-mail inviting him or her to visit the Sites. We store this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time e-mail and tracking the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at support@mainstreetcrowd.com to request that we remove this information from our database.

Our Sites may, from time to time, contain links to the websites of our affiliates, partners, advertisers, and other third parties. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites are operated under their own privacy policies and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies or the content or operation of these websites. Please check the policies and the terms of usage of any website before you submit any Personal Information to them.

Social Media Widgets

Our Sites include links to popular social networking Sites, called “widgets.” These widgets may collect information such as your IP address, the page you link from on our Sites, and may set a cookie to enable the widget to function. Your use of any of the widgets we provide is governed by the privacy policies of the related website.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time. Any changes become effective upon posting to our Sites and your continued use of our Sites after posting constitutes your acceptance of, and agreement to be bound by, those changes. Please check the “Revision Date” on the first page to determine if there have been any changes since you have last reviewed our Privacy Policy.

We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
