This Policy is an integral part of the AlphaStreet’s Terms of Service and is subject to the provisions of the Terms of Service. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for more information on the use, disclaimers, and limitations of liability governing the use of our Services. This Policy applies solely to information collected through our Services and does not cover websites or services that we do not control.
In this Policy, "Personal Information" refers to information that specifically identifies an individual, such as name, address, telephone number, or email address. Personal Information also includes information about an individual's activities, such as activity on our Services, location information, and demographic information when linked to identifiable personal information.
Personal Information does not include "aggregate" or other non-personally identifiable information. Aggregate information is information that we collect about a group or category of products, services, or users that is not personally identifiable. We may use and disclose aggregate information and other non-personally identifiable information for various purposes.
Collection of Information
We collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide to us through various means on our Services. These include:
E-mail Newsletters: If you sign up to receive our newsletters or other communications, we collect your email address.
User Accounts and Profiles: When you register for a Company account or create/update a user profile, we collect the Personal Information you provide, such as name, address, telephone number, email address, and demographic information.

We use this information to administer, operate, and improve our Services, enhance advertising effectiveness, and provide tailored content and recommendations. If we link passive information with Personal Information or if applicable laws require treating passive information as Personal Information, we handle it in accordance with this Policy. Otherwise, we use and disclose passive information in an aggregate or non-personally identifiable form.

These third parties may include service providers, contractors, designated agents, marketing teams, and business partners within the AlphaStreet group.
Service Providers: We may disclose Personal Information to third-party service providers, such as payment processors and data storage facilities, who assist us in our operations. We ensure that these service providers only receive the necessary Personal Information to perform their functions, and we require them to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
Public Areas and Syndicated Services: Certain features on our Services allow you to upload, post, or transmit User Materials to public areas or Syndicated Services.

Business Transfers: In the event of a merger, acquisition, sale of assets, or similar transaction, Personal Information about our users may be disclosed and transferred to the acquiring entity or successor as part of the business assets. This may also occur during insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership proceedings.
To Protect Our Interests: We may disclose Personal Information if we believe it is legally required or necessary to protect our rights, property, or the safety of our Services, users, or others. This includes enforcing our agreements and taking actions to prevent fraud or security breaches.

If you are under 13, your parent or guardian must provide consent on your behalf when we request consent for the use of your information.
Our servers and data centres are located in the United States. If you choose to use the Services from outside the U.S., then you should know that you are transferring your Personal Information outside of your region and into the U.S. for storage and processing. By providing your Personal Information to us through your use of the Service, you agree to that transfer, storage, and processing in the U.S.
Also, we may transfer your data from the U.S. to other countries or regions in connection with storage and processing of data, fulfilling your requests, and operating the Services. You should know that each region can have its own privacy and data security laws, some of which may be less stringent as compared to those of your own region.
We have implemented reasonable security measures to safeguard personal information from accidental loss, disclosure, misuse, and destruction. We employ data encryption and rely on the security procedures of our cloud server vendors, such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, or other vendors providing data storage services. However, please be aware that no data security measures can provide absolute guarantees. Therefore, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us. You transmit information to us at your own risk.
