Privacy Policy

Shuman Snyder respects the privacy of the visitors to our website (“Site”) and of our clients and partners. This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) is to inform you, our visitor, client, partner and/or user (“User”), of our policies and practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of any Personal Information (defined below) you submit to us through the Site.

“Personal Information” is information about you that is personally identifiable to you such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, user name, and any other information that could allow someone to identify you or contact you. Personally identifiable information also includes information about your transactions or relationship with us if you have been a user or you have provided this type of information to us.

User Consent
By submitting Personal Information through the Site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and you expressly consent to the processing of your Personal Information according to this Privacy Policy. Because of its importance and to make it easier for you to find and review it, we have made this Privacy Policy into a separate document on the Site. However, bear in mind it is a part of our agreement with you, and it describes how and when we may make changes to these statements and terms, and how they become binding upon you. We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time and without notice. Any changes to the Privacy Policy will be posted on the Site. We encourage you to check the page regularly as you will be bound by the changes once posted.

Our Commitment
We are committed to protecting your privacy. Keeping the information you share with us secure and ensuring your understanding of how we collect, use and maintain your information is important to us. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information, and while no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure from intrusion, we have used and will continue to use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the protection of your information. It is always possible that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access your transmissions or private communications. Please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.

Although we may track the numbers of visitors to inform us on how best to update the Site and enhance the experience for all visitors, personally identifiable information is not extracted in this process. We use tracking information on an aggregated basis to help us operate the Site, enhance and improve and update the Site, improve the look of the Site and display advertising and marketing information.

An “Internet protocol address” or “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. We track IP Addresses solely in conjunction with session cookies to analyze our web page flow.

In general, Personal Information you submit to us is used by us either to sign you up for Site, notify you of events, respond to requests that you make, improve to the Site and to better tailor the features, performance and support of the Site, offer you additional information, opportunities, and functionality, and invoice you. We may also use your Personal Information to provide you with electronic newsletters or promotional e-mails, should you request to receive such communications from us. We do not sell or market your Personal Information to unaffiliated organizations. We may use Personal Information and Anonymous Information to track User–generated content and Users to the extent necessary to comply as a service provider with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

We may also use your Personal Information to communicate with you as and when we, at our sole discretion, feel that communications are necessary.

International Users
Please note that your Personal Information may be processed by us in the country where it was collected as well as other countries (including the United States) where laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country. For Users using Services or accessing the Site from the European Economic Area or other non–U.S. territories, please note that any data you enter through the Site will be transferred outside the European Economic Area or such other non–U.S. territory for use by us for any of the purposes described herein. By providing any data through the Site, you hereby expressly consent to such transfers of your data to the United States or other countries.

Disclosure of Personal Information
Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we do not trade, rent, or share your Personal Information with third parties unless you ask or authorize us to do so. We may provide your Personal Information to third party service providers who work on behalf of or with us to provide some of the services and features of the Site. However, these service providers do not have any independent right to share this information (expect pursuant to a legal requirement such as a subpoena or warrant).

We may share Personal Information:

  • When we have retained companies to work with or on behalf of us to provide goods or services that you have requested.
  • When we are compelled to do so by a governmental agency, court or other entity (e.g., to respond to subpoenas, court orders or legal process).
  • If we believe your actions violate any law, regulation, our General Terms and Conditions or any of our guidelines or policies, or if you threaten the rights, property or safety of Company, our suppliers, licensors, advertisers, other customers or users, or any other party.

Security and Notice
We use reasonable measures to maintain the security of your Personal Information. However, no company, including us, can fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information. If we learn of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps.
