Privacy

August 1, 2016

SyWest Development LLC ("SyWest") takes your privacy seriously. Earning and maintaining your trust is important to us. We want you to understand what information we gather from you, how this information is used and protected, and what choices you have about how your information is used. This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices of www.SyWest.com (the "Website"). By using the Website, you agree, without limitation or qualification, to be bound by this Privacy Policy.

If you access a third party website from a link on the Website, any information you reveal on that site is not subject to this Privacy Policy. You should consult the privacy policy of each third party website you visit.

INFORMATION COLLECTED ABOUT YOU

SyWest collects two kinds of information: (1) Personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") voluntarily provided by visitors through optional registration or other methods; and (2) non-personally identifiable information routinely gathered as visitors navigate through our Website.

You are free to visit and use our Website without providing any Personal Information. However, SyWest offers services on our Website that require registration and/or submission of Personal Information. In order to register or otherwise take advantage of the personalized services that we offer on our Website, you will have to provide Personal Information. The Personal Information that we request from you may include your name, address, email address and other information. Providing SyWest with your Personal Information is strictly voluntary.

COOKIES

A cookie is a small text file stored on a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies on our Website to determine the number of unique visitors, to personalize your online experience, to identify returning visitors, and to provide you with advertisements and messages of interest to you. SyWest does not store any Personal Information in any cookies on your computer. However, we do link the non-personal information we store in cookies to your Personal Information. Also, companies offering products or services through our Website may use their own cookies. This Privacy Policy covers the use and placement of cookies by SyWest only, and does not cover the use or placement of cookies by any third party.

Your browser may be set to reject all cookies. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the "Help" section of the toolbar. If you reject our cookie(s), you may not be able to utilize some of the features of our Website.

LOG FILES

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information (which does not identify individual users) to analyze trends, to administer the Website, and to identify and solve hardware and software problems as they arise. We may link this automatically-collected data to your Personal Information for the purpose of determining your interests and to offer you goods or services that we believe may be of interest to you.

If you register on our Website and provide us with Personal Information, we may link non-personal, aggregated tracking data with your online Personal Information through the use of cookies, log files and other non-personal information collection. We may also supplement the Personal Information we collect from you with non-personal or personal information from other, third party sources (e.g., Experian Information Solutions, Inc.). We will merge this third party information with Personal Information you have provided to us. The composite information about you will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Information collected by third parties not acting on behalf of SyWest sponsors, partners or advertisers on the Website or in emails, special promotions, or newsletters we send you may also use their own cookies or web beacons when you click on their advertisement or link to their website or service, or even if the advertisement simply appears on a page or in an email that you are viewing.

We do not control third parties' use of cookies or web beacons, or how they manage the non-personal information they gather through them. Please review the privacy policy of other websites you visit or link to from our site to understand how these other sites use cookies and how they use the information they collect through the use of cookies or web beacons on their own websites.

We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. This Website is not designed for, nor is it intended to attract, children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information directly from any person under the age of 13, and if we do inadvertently collect information from a person under the age of 13, we delete it as soon as we discover it.

This Privacy Policy does not protect you when you send business information, ideas, concepts or inventions to SyWest by email to the contacts listed on the "Contact Us" link on our Website. If you want to keep business information, ideas, concepts or inventions private or proprietary, do not send them in an email to SyWest.  Instead, please contact SyWest and inquire as to other means to send SyWest such  business information, ideas, concepts or inventions.

DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION

Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy or as specifically agreed to by you, SyWest will not disclose any Personal Information it gathers from you on our Website without your prior permission. Except as set forth herein, you will have the opportunity to opt-in to SyWest sharing your Personal Information with third parties, and you may withdraw your consent to SyWest sharing your information at any time.

In some circumstances, we must disclose your Personal Information to third parties who help us administer our Website or our services. These third parties are required to keep your information confidential and do not use your information for any purpose other than the purpose under which your information was collected.

We may also release Personal Information to third parties: (1) to comply with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, court order, or legal process; or (2) in special cases, such as a physical threat to you or others, or to protect the rights and/or property of SyWest. Additionally, in the unlikely event that the entirety of our business is sold, liquidated, merged, or transferred to a third party, we may transfer all Personal Information and non-personal information to the party purchasing or merging with us.

DISCLOSURE TO OUTSIDE CONTRACTORS

We may employ independent contractors, vendors and suppliers (collectively, "Outside Contractors") to provide specific services and products related to our Website, including, but not limited to, maintaining an email suppression list as required by state and/or federal law, providing credit card processing and shipping fulfillment, fraud screening, testing and implementation of special services, such as those for contacting members and developing applications for our Website and email services. These Outside Contractors may sometimes have limited access to information collected on our Website, including your Personal Information, in the course of providing products or services to us. Access to your Personal Information by these Outside Contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary in order for the Outside Contractors to perform their limited function for us.

DISCLOSURE TO THIRD PARTY SELLERS

Through our Website, you may be given the opportunity to purchase (or to obtain more information) regarding certain content, products or services which are sold through a person or company other than us or our affiliates (collectively, "Third Party Sellers"). We will attempt to notify you when you are dealing with a Third Party Seller by opening a new browser or otherwise notifying you that you are leaving our Website.  However, we shall incur no liability if we do not so notify you. For example, if you see a phrase such as "powered by" or "brought to you by" followed by the name of a person or company other than SyWest, then you are likely on, or about to enter, a website hosted or operated by a person or company other than us. Third Party Sellers may request that you submit certain Personal Information (e.g., name and address for shipment purposes) to them in order to purchase their products or services or to obtain additional information from them. Alternatively, we may offer the products or services of these Third Party Sellers elsewhere on our Website. If you should make a purchase of these products or services, we will transmit your purchase data and your Personal Information to the Third Party Seller so that the transaction can be processed.

If you do not wish for a Third Party Seller to have access to your Personal Information, please do not make a purchase on our Website. By submitting the requested information, you affirmatively consent to have that information shared with the Third Party Seller. This information is used by the Third Party Seller and may be subject to a different privacy policy. We do not otherwise share or disclose your Personal Information to Third Party Sellers unless you give us permission to do so.

DISCLOSURE TO LINKED SITES

In addition to the third party websites that you may access to as described above, for your convenience, there may be links to websites operated by companies other than SyWest ("Third Party Websites") that are not contractors who provide content or services through our Website. These links may be found in advertisements, referenced within content, or placed beside the names or logos of sponsors. SyWest does not disclose your Personal Information to these Third Party Websites without obtaining your consent. In addition, SyWest does not endorse and is not responsible for the privacy practices of these websites. If you choose to link to one of these Third party Websites, you should review the privacy policy posted on the other site to understand how that Third Party Website collects and uses your Personal Information.

OTHER DISCLOSURES

We reserve the right to transfer information to a third party in the event of a sale, liquidation, merger, or other transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of SyWest. We will endeavor, in good faith, to gain the third party's agreement and adherence to the terms of this Privacy Policy. However, we shall incur no liability if we are not able to obtain such third party's agreement and adherence.  In addition, we will notify users of any such transfer through notice on our Website and through email.

HOW SYWEST HANDLES SECURITY

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information on our Website, we follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its  security, and we shall incur no liability if such security is compromised.

YOUR PRIVACY CHOICES

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, we will only use Personal Information for the purposes described above or as otherwise disclosed at the time we request such Personal Information from you. You may also change your preference and "opt-out" of receiving voluntary, non-transactional communications by contacting SyWest at the following:   info@SyWest.com. You may also change your mind as to whether SyWest may share your Personal Information with third parties by sending an email to info@ SyWest.com.

SyWest is a company organized and operated in the United States and all of our servers are located in the United States. Privacy laws differ in jurisdictions outside the United States. If you are located in a country outside the United States, please be aware that your Personal Information will be collected and stored in compliance with United States laws.

UPDATING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND CONTACTING SYWEST

You can always contact us in order to (1) update or correct your Personal Information, (2) change your preferences with respect to communications and other information you receive from us or third parties, or (3) delete the Personal Information maintained about you on our systems, by contacting info@ SyWest.com. Such updates, corrections, changes and deletions will not have an effect on other information that we maintain, or information that we have provided to third parties in accordance with this Privacy Policy prior to such update, correction, change, or deletion. You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to SyWest from our servers. The need to back-up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your Personal Information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate and remove.

CONTACT US WITH PRIVACY-RELATED QUESTIONS

If you have a complaint or problem, you may email us at info@ SyWest.com and we will forward your complaint to the appropriate internal SyWest department for a response or resolution. We try to answer every email in a timely manner, but are not always able to do so.

For material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you either by placing a prominent notice on the home page of the Website or by sending you a notification directly. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy periodically to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the Personal Information we collect.
