Site5.com (“Site5) has created this legal statement in order to outline the terms and conditions and privacy information to users of our WordPress themes (“Services”).
1. Newsletter Mailing List
By signing up for access to our free WordPress themes, you agree in turn to be subscribed to our WordPress theme mailing list. This list will be used to announce new themes, updates to our themes, and similar topics. The newsletter requires opt-in confirmation, and users can unsubscribe at any time.
Site5 is committed to developing long lasting relationships based on trust. As such, Site5 will do everything in its power to ensure that your right to privacy is maintained and protected. Our Services are not directed at children under 13 years of age.
3. Information We Collect
Site5 may request or collect personal information from users in a variety of ways. The information we collect is personal information that identifies you personally such as:
- First & Last name
- Email Address
- URL / Domain Name
- Instant Message Network Username (AIM, Yahoo, Google Talk, etc.)
4. What are Cookies?
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s computer tied to information about the user. We may use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. For session ID cookies, once you close your browser or log out, the cookie terminates and is erased. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on your computer’s hard drive for an extended period of time.
Your browser’s help file contains information and instructions for removing persistent cookies. Session ID cookies may be used by Site5 to track user preferences while the user is using our Services. They also help to minimize load times and save on server processing. Persistent cookies may be used by Site5 to store whether, for example, you want your password remembered or not, and other information. Cookies used on Site5 websites do not contain personally identifiable information.
5. Log Files
Like most standard websites, we use log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. However, none of the information stored in our log files, including but not limited to IP addresses, is linked to personally identifiable information.
6. How we use this Information
Site5 may use the personally identifiable information collected by Site5 to contact customers regarding products and services offered by Site5 and, to the extent the User has agreed to it, by its trusted affiliates, independent contractors and business partners. We may also use this information for research purposes regarding the effectiveness of our Services and marketing and sales efforts. Site5 will not in any way share this information with a third party either for free or by selling it, unless you specifically authorize such disclosures.
7. Disclosure of Information
Site5 may also disclose aggregate, anonymous, data based on information collected from Users to investors and potential partners. In such cases, statistical information only will be disclosed and personally identifiable data will be kept strictly confidential. In case Site5 is sold, the information collected from users may be transferred to the new owners.
Site5 may from time to time engage third parties, including its own subsidiaries and affiliated companies, to preserve, analyze or otherwise store or manipulate data received by Site5 from its customers. In all such cases, such third party service providers will be required to treat all such data with the same degree of care as Site5 and they will be prohibited from disclosing such data to any other person or party, except as otherwise provided for in this legal statement.
8. Legal Disclaimer
Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law, if we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary and required to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on Site5.
Site5 websites contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Site5 is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This legal statement as described herein applies solely to information collected by Site5.
9. Maintenance of Information
The information provided to Site5 is saved indefinitely and may be stored on one or more databases directly or indirectly maintained by Site5. Site5 employs industry standard security measures to protect the confidentiality of the information. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur; we make every effort to prevent such occurrences.
10. Your Responsibility
You are responsible for the security of the login information, such as usernames and passwords, which give you access to your private information maintained by Site5. Make sure you keep login information in a safe place and do not share it with others.
Note that key-loggers, viruses, or other surveillance devices can intercept login information on the computers from which you access our Services, so you should take precautions regarding such devices, especially from public computers. In addition, you should always log out from any relevant Services when you are not actively using them.
