1. Collection of Information
(a) Active Collection of Personal Information.
The Site offers you the opportunity to become a registered user of the Site. Your registration will give you full access to the Site. To become a registered user, you must create a user identification name and password (collectively, the “Login Information”) that you will use to access your registered account.
Personal Information may be aggregated and/or anonymized so that it can no longer identify you. Once information is anonymized, it is no longer considered personal information. We do not attempt to reidentify any information that has been aggregated and/or anonymized.
The Site uses SaaS-based (“software as a service”) marketing solutions to allow users to create accounts and become members of the Site. The Site also marketing automation services to communicate with you by email if you choose to “opt-in” to the Company’s mailing list via your user account. If you register for an account on the Site, the information you have provided to become a registered user, including your first and last name, date of birth, street address, city, state, zip code, email address, and telephone number, may be made available to the Company’s third-party marketing vendors, which will use your information to provide services to you, the Company, or as otherwise permitted by those vendors’ own privacy policies.
The site also uses form-building tools that enable the Company to collect user information, payments, registrations, and other information voluntarily provided by any user in one location via the forms provided on the Site.
The Company also collects other information you provide. This includes, but is not limited to, any comments, suggestions, or other information that you provide on, through, or relating to the Site, and/or that relates to the Company’s products or the Company. This also includes records and copies of correspondence, including contact information, as a result of your communications with us; responses to surveys that we may ask you to fill out for research and marketing purposes; and your search queries. This information may be made available to third-party marketing and analytics providers.
From time to time, the Site will offer you the opportunity to participate in promotions, contests, challenges, or sweepstakes (collectively, “Promotions”). You may be required to enter additional personal information to enter a Promotion. Each Promotion the Site offers will have its own entry page, which will include a list of rules describing the requirements for the Promotion.
(b) Passive Collection of Information through Tracking Technology
The Site uses third-party web analytics service providers to help analyze how users use the Site. These providers use “cookies” and other tracking technology to collect aggregate data (“Aggregate Data”) from your visits to the Site. Cookies are text files the Site places in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer system or files. Only the website that transferred a particular cookie to you can read, modify, or delete such cookie. Your browser should allow you to delete existing cookies, decline cookies, or give you the choice of declining or accepting cookies. You may be able to configure settings within your web browser to prevent analytics information from being sent to certain third-party analytics providers.
The Company stores any Aggregate Data we receive in aggregate form. The Company is not able to identify any particular user or individual from the Aggregate Data. The Company uses the Aggregate Data it collects in a variety of ways, including but not limited to keeping count of your return visits to the Site, accumulating and reporting aggregate statistical information regarding the Site, and determining which features users prefer.
In addition to information collected through marketing and analytics providers, we may also use automatically-collected information that help us to customize the Site to match our users’ individual interests and recognize returning users, estimate the number of website-users and their usage patterns, and increase the speed of our users’ searches. We may use the below tools to collect this data:
“Pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs,” or similar means (collectively, “Pixel Tags”). We use these small electronic files to compile aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. Pixel Tags allow the Company to count the number of users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver branded services, and to help the Company determine the effectiveness of its promotional or advertising campaigns as well as the effectiveness of the Site itself. When Pixel Tags are used in HTML-formatted email messages, they can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened, the email address of the recipient who opened the email, and information about how the recipient interacted with the email.
Referrers and your Internet Protocol (IP) Address. Referrers are small files containing information your web browser passes to the Company’s web server that references the URL which you used to access the Site. Your IP address is the number used by computers on the network to identify your computer so that you can receive data.
Environmental variables. Environmental variables include, but are not limited to, the domain from which you access the Internet, the time you accessed the Site, the type of web browser, operating system, and platform your computer uses, the Internet address of the previous website you visited before entering the Site, the names of the pages you visit while at the Site, and the next Internet website you visit after leaving the Site.
2. How We Use and Disclose Information
The Company may use and/or disclose your information (including your Personal Information) as follows:
(a) Our Business Purposes. We may use your information for the Company’s everyday business purposes such as to (1) provide services to you including through our subsidiaries and affiliates, (2) communicate updates, promotions, or news about the Company, its products, or events through e-mail or direct mail, (3) market our products and services, (4) monitor and conduct reviews of the Company’s products and offers, (5) help the Company improve its current products or develop new products, (6) collect demographic and geographic information about the users of the Site and its products, (7) communicate administrative or legislative related information, and (8) for purposes of data security, network security, audits, investigation or the processing of claims, and (9) fulfill any other purpose for which you provide the information.

These third-party service providers may have access to your information, but only to the extent required to perform their assigned roles, and we have entered into contractual arrangements with these persons to restrict use of your information for any other reason.

We may release information about you if we believe such a release is necessary to comply with the law or in response to a subpoena or other legal process including any government or regulatory request.

3. Your Responsibilities and Choices
(a) User Generated Content Functions
(b) Accuracy and Confidentiality
(c) Communication with Users; Opt-Outs; Attempted Fraud
The Company may contact registered users or other users who have entered personal information in connection with the Site. You may “opt out” of receiving marketing and promotional emails by following the opt-out procedure described in each email the Company sends. However, even if you opt out of receiving marketing and promotional emails, the Company may continue to email or otherwise communicate with you for administrative or informational purposes, including follow-up messages regarding the administration of your account, any Promotions in which you have participated, or any content you have submitted to the Site.
The Company does not and will not call or send you emails asking you to provide or confirm sensitive personal information or to provide your Login Information. A technique known as “phishing” attempts to steal personal identity data and financial account credentials from consumers. “Phishers” use “spoofed” emails to lead consumers to sham websites which trick recipients into divulging personal information including credit card numbers, account usernames, passwords, and social security numbers. If you receive any such communication purporting to be from Decade-Platinum.com, please forward it immediately to email@example.com and then delete it from your computer, phone, or mobile device.
4. Third-Party Websites and Social Interactions
Additionally, the Site may permit or encourage interactions among you, the Site, and/or a third-party website or service (each, a “Social Interaction”). Examples of Social Interactions may include services or technology that enable you to “like” or “share” content from the Site on or with third-party websites and/or services; to transmit content to the Site from a third-party website or service; to otherwise connect the Site to a third-party website or service; or to register for an account, login, and/or view content associated with the Company, the Site, and/or one or more third parties through social networking sites such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn (each, a “Social Network”).
5. Security and Protection of Personal Information
The Company uses firewalls and physical controls to maintain security and confidentiality on the Site to protect against unauthorized disclosures, use, alteration, or destruction of the information you provide to the Site. The Company limits access to the databases containing information to its key personnel. However, the security of your Personal Information also depends on you. For example, to the extent we have provided you, or you have chosen, a password and/or username to access the Site, you are responsible for keeping this information confidential. Please do not share your password or username with anyone. The Company cannot guarantee the security of Personal Information, and, therefore, any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that information you provide to us over the Internet will not be intercepted.
