GENERAL PRIVACY PRINCIPLES
“Personally Identifying Information” is information that individually identifies you, such as your name, physical address, credit card number, phone numbers, e-mail address, and any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact you. Transend asks for your Personally Identifying Information so that it can understand your needs and/or to enable, improve, or otherwise modify your use of the Services. Of course, you may choose not to provide Transend with Personally Identifying Information. However, this choice may prevent Transend from providing you with the product, information, or Service you requested or that could be offered to you.
Your knowledge and consent are required for the collection, use, or disclosure of your Personally Identifying Information. No Personally Identifying Information is collected without your express consent. By submitting Personally Identifying Information to Transend, you hereby consent to the collection, use, and disclosure by Transend of the Personally Identifying Information that you disclose to Transend.
Transend only collects the information that it needs in order to deliver products, information, and Services to you or as otherwise is beneficial for the operations of the Services or relevant to your use of the Services.
Limiting Use, Disclosure, and Retention:
You have the right to update, modify, amend, or correct errors in your Personally Identifying Information by contacting Transend.
Transend protects your Personally Identifying Information by using safeguards that are designed to protect the confidentiality of such information. Unfortunately, neither Transend’s network nor data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect a User’s information, Transend cannot ensure or warrant the security of member information. Thus, any information a User transmits to us is done so at the User’s own risk.
The Services do not respond to Do Not Track signals. Third parties may collect Personally Identifying Information about you when you use a Service.
Accountability and Compliance:
On occasion, Transend’s websites are connected by “hyperlinks” to other companies’ websites. Please note that Transend is not responsible in any way for the privacy practices of other websites and suggests that you review the privacy policies of those other companies’ websites before using them.
