Please be aware that this Privacy Statement is a part of our User Agreement with you even though it is under a separate heading. This privacy statement must be considered part of the User Agreement Terms and Conditions and is therefore binding to the same degree as the User Agreement Terms and Conditions.

Your Personal Information and Confidentiality – Here’s the Information We May Collect
Privacy/Confidentiality. Any and all information about the users of this service is confidential and is available for informational purposes only. If we determine that your use of this service is intended for a different purpose, then we can revoke your access to this site at any time. Furthermore, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password; you are also fully responsible for all activities that occur under them. You agree to immediately notify Socially Collaborative Media Inc. (SCM) of any unauthorized use of your username or password or any other breach of security of which you become aware.
Information we may collect. We protect personal information that we collect about you by maintaining physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that meet or exceed applicable laws. The personal information that we collect about you comes from information that we may receive from you directly, which may or may not include your name, address, and email address, and sometimes, your telephone number if it is provided. We may also collect information about your transactions with us (that may or may not include PayPal™ account information).
Our Promise to You. While information is the cornerstone of our ability to provide superior service, our most important asset is our customers' trust. Keeping customer information secure and using it only as our Web visitors would want is a top priority for all of us at SCM. Accordingly, we intend to do the following:
a. We will safeguard, according to strict standards of security and confidentiality, any information our users share with us.
b. We will limit the collection and use of your information to the minimum we require to communicate with you, which may include advising you about new products, services and other opportunities, and to administer our business, in general.
c. We will attempt to keep customer files complete, up to date, and accurate. We will tell our customers how and where to conveniently access their account information (except when we're prohibited by law), and how to notify us about errors -- which we will make every good faith effort to promptly correct.
d. We will ensure that all SCM employees adhere to our privacy and confidentiality policies through education, training, and will enforce these policies vigorously.
Confidentiality: The above-referenced information and documentation which is kept on our site contains specialized and proprietary information, and will not be copied or disseminated to third parties without the permission of SCM. Within SCM and among our service providers, we restrict access to information to those who require that access in order to provide products and services to you. We will not share the personal information that we collect.
Cookies and Data collection. SCM considers the protection of sensitive information to be a sound business practice and a foundation of customer trust. We employ extensive information protection controls in keeping with industry standards and practices, and we will regularly adapt these physical, electronic and procedural controls to respond to changing requirements and advances in technology.
SCM employs various safeguards to maintain the security of your online session: For example, we make extensive use of firewall barriers, encryption techniques and authentication procedures, and cookies. A cookie is a piece of information which a web server may place on your computer when you visit a website. Cookies are commonly used by websites to improve the user experience and have not been known to transmit computer viruses or otherwise harm your computer.

Cookies and similar files may be placed on your hard drive for security purposes, to facilitate site navigation, and to personalize your experience on our site.
Our cookies will track only your activity relating to our online service and your activity on our website. They will not track your other Internet activity. Should you wish to disable your cookies, you are free to do so. Please know that, in so doing, you may possibly lose some degree of access to some of our website’s cool features.
In addition to the information we collect from cookies, we also obtain information which you provide to us online – for example, when you provide a user name or account information, when you set preferences or otherwise communicate with us. In some cases, we retain both the cookie information and/or the information you provide to us online – for example, to complete a transaction you requested or to keep historical records of your past transactions.
Our website has and will continue to have numerous links to other websites to better serve you. However, please be advised that SCM is not responsible for other websites’ privacy policies. We encourage you to visit those linked websites and read their privacy policies. Our link to another company’s website is not necessarily an endorsement of that company’s privacy policies.
