STEAMS ONLINE, Inc. ("STEAMS ONLINE") is committed to protecting your privacy. We take privacy very seriously here at STEAMS ONLINE and post this STEAMS ONLINE Privacy & Security Policy ("Policy") to explain our policy and what STEAMS ONLINE does with the information we collect from you which may identify you (referred to in this Policy as "personal information") when you visit and use our website and the applications and services offered by STEAMS ONLINE (the "Services").
Our vision at STEAMS ONLINE is to introduce visitors to the benefits of our services and to facilitate contact management for all of our customers ("Account Holders") and our collection and use of your personal information is intended to help us achieve these objectives.
During your visit to the STEAMS ONLINE website, we (or third parties acting on our behalf) may capture certain personal information about you:
We use personal information we collect about you or that you provide to us to:
As you navigate the STEAMS ONLINE website (whether or not you register as a user), personal information may be collected automatically through the use of commonly used information gathering tools such as cookies (imbedded code that recognizes your browser), web beacons (clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information) and other existing or future tracking technology. Additionally, we collect other information from your Web browser, such as browser type, your internet protocol address and actions you have taken on our website (i.e., pages viewed and clicked links).
Web beacons are small electronic files that permit STEAMS ONLINE to collect website statistics such as how many users visited the website. Such information is used to determine the popularity of certain website content and verify system and server integrity. Internet Protocol Addresses are collected by STEAMS ONLINE to track and aggregate non-personal information. These addresses are collected when you log in.
STEAMS ONLINE will never ask for your login id, password or any other personal information in an unsolicited phone call, email or letter. Should anyone contact you requesting such information, please contact STEAMS ONLINE directly via email at: email@example.com to advise us.
Further, any contact with STEAMS ONLINE customer service in which personal information is exchanged with a customer service representative will be used only for the purpose of satisfying that request. Any personal information you provide to a customer service representative will not be recorded or used for any reason other than in accordance with this Policy or as directed by you.
Steams Online will not disclose any of the personal information supplied to STEAMS ONLINE to any other third party except as expressly mentioned in this Policy, the Terms and Conditions of Use or as directed by you.
STEAMS ONLINE does not support spamming over email by our Account Holders. If you would like to report an incident of email spamming, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will investigate and take suitable action at our discretion. STEAMS ONLINE may send you marketing and other email communications from time to time including special offers, new features, new products or services, and referrals. Any email from STEAMS ONLINE will fully comply with the CAN-SPAM Act. In each of these emails, you will be given the choice to unsubscribe from the STEAMS ONLINE communications by clicking on "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of the email. In addition, if you do not wish to receive such emails you may specify your communication preferences to our customer service representatives at email@example.com or by calling +1 (800)-544-9665. Account Holders will always receive any system-wide notices regarding scheduling of maintenance that may or may not result in the Service being temporarily unavailable. Please note that Account Holders may not "opt-out" of receiving these emails.
Choice of subscription to the Service is yours at all times, and you are free to remove yourself as an Account Holder at any time. Simply follow the directions in any of our emails.
Forums, Chat, Blogs, and Customer Testimonials:
STEAMS ONLINE may provide bulletin boards, blogs, or chat rooms on our website. Any personal information you choose to submit in such a forum may be read, collected, or used by others who visit these forums, and may be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums. Please understand that, though we may have some small influence over our Account Holders, we fundamentally cannot control the online or offline actions of our Account Holders or other parties, especially when it comes to their use of personal information that you choose to disclose in moderated or unmoderated newsgroups and forums, known on the STEAMS ONLINE website as "Forums". While we will investigate complaints sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and take appropriate action with our Account Holders or other parties, we will typically not provide any personal information to third parties about our conversations with our Account Holders. We encourage people to resolve disputes directly with each other and discourage people from attempting to use STEAMS ONLINE to police their mailbox or newsgroup.
STEAMS ONLINE lists customer names, customer titles and testimonials from customers on its website. However, STEAMS ONLINE never posts any such information without obtaining the consent of the customer prior to posting such information. Customers may elect to use STEAMS ONLINES’ affiliate program to refer and inform friends about the STEAMS ONLINE website and services. When using the affiliate program, STEAMS ONLINE requests the friend's name, email address and country. Using that information, STEAMS ONLINE will send the friend an email inviting him or her to visit the STEAMS ONLINE website and if they visit may send follow up emails.
By providing personal information of a third party, you are representing to STEAMS ONLINE that you have all necessary authority and/or have obtained all necessary consents from such individual to collect, use and disclose his or her personal information as set forth in this Policy. If we receive a written complaint or direction from the person, we will delete his or her information and notify you that we have done so.
Only those STEAMS ONLINE employees trained in our security processes with managerial oversight would ever have access to your personal information which includes your name and login id. Our employees will not have access to your password. If you forget your password, you will be able to use our fully automated password recovery system to help you gain access to your account.
We may use contractors or vendors to help us provide some of the services at our website. If we need to disclose personal information to them in order to provide these services, it is with the requirement that the personal information is kept confidential and is used only for those services. Any third parties with whom we share your personal information are limited (by law and by contract) in their ability to use your personal information for any purpose other than to provide services for STEAMS ONLINE. We will always ensure that any third parties with whom we share your personal information are subject to privacy and security obligations consistent with this Policy and applicable laws.
STEAMS ONLINE may provide access to your personal information to a successor of STEAMS ONLINE in connection with a sale, merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of the assets of the business, whether as a going concern or as part of a bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding. STEAMS ONLINE reserves the right to use or disclose your personal information if required by law or if STEAMS ONLINE reasonably believes that use or disclosure is necessary to protect its rights and/or to comply with any laws including a judicial proceeding or court order.
We may also disclose your personal information to enforce or apply our services agreement, and other agreements (including for billing and collection purposes), for any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the personal information (and for which we have a legal basis) or where you have provided your consent for us to do so.
While you may electronically submit data and information (which may include personal information) to the STEAMS ONLINE Service for hosting and processing purposes, STEAMS ONLINE will not review, share, distribute or reference any of your data or information except as provided in the Terms and Conditions of Use, this Policy, or as may be required by law.
STEAMS ONLINE may transfer and access certain data and personal information collected from different locations around the world including the United States. This Policy shall apply even if data is transferred and accessed to or from other countries.
If you are located outside of the United States, the personal information that we collect from you will be transferred to, and stored in the United States or another location outside of the EEA. The personal information will also be processed by staff operating in the United States or outside the EEA working for us, other members of our group or third party data processors. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the provision of our services to you, the processing of transactions and/or the provision of support services. By providing us with your personal information you acknowledge any such transfer, storage and processing. We will always take steps to ensure that such transfers comply with applicable privacy laws and we will take all reasonable precautions to ensure that your personal information is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy.
STEAMS ONLINE has implemented appropriate organizational and technical measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access including a secure, encrypted connection (called an SSL connection) on all pages where you transmit personal data to us. Whenever you access any of your account pages or change any of your user information, it is done over an SSL connection to STEAMS ONLINE. All data transfer to (upload) or from (download) our website will be via over a SSL connection using a current certificate.
If you sign up on our website, you will create your own log in id and password that is known only to you and STEAMS ONLINE.
STEAMS ONLINE strongly discourages the sharing of your login id and password with anyone. You, the Account Holder, are responsible for the safety and security of your login id and password.
