By Combining Information. We may match the information we collect about you through the Platforms with information collected from such third parties.

For example, we may:

  • Combine information that we collect offline with information we collect through our Platform.
  • Combine information we collect about you from the different devices you use to access our Platform.
  • Combine information we get from third parties with information we already have about you.

We are committed to maintaining your trust, and we want you to understand how we may share the information we collect.

  • Service Providers. We may share your information with third-party service providers that perform certain functions or services on our behalf. This includes hosting the Platform, managing databases, and hosting a store or other e-commerce platform. It also includes assisting with, sweepstakes or promotions, performing analyses, or sending communications for us.
  • Business Partners. We may share your information with select business partners so that they can provide you with special offers and promotional materials that may be of interest to you. However, Paciolan is not responsible for the privacy practices of these business partners, which may use your information for their own purposes.
  • Our Clients. When Paciolan is engaged by a client to operate a website,  Paciolan may share your information with the applicable client for the course of the engagement.
  • Other Parties When Required By Law or as Necessary to Protect the Platform. We may disclose your information to third parties in order to protect the legal rights, safety, and security of Paciolan, our member organizations and the users of our Platform; enforce our Terms of Use; prevent fraud, including fraud we think has occurred during a sweepstakes or promotion (or for risk management purposes); and comply with or respond to law enforcement or legal process or a request for cooperation by a government or other entity, whether or not legally required.
  • In Connection With a Reorganization or Transfer of Assets. If we sell all or part of our business, or make a sale or transfer of assets, or are otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, or in the event of bankruptcy, we may transfer your information to one or more third parties as part of that transaction.
  • Other Parties With Your Consent. We may share information about you with third parties when you consent to such sharing, including when you post information to a user profile or a public area of the Platform, such as a chat room, forum, blog, or other community tool.

  • For Other Reasons We May Describe to You.

5. Cookies and Similar Technologies

We may use cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies to automatically collect this information. Cookies are small bits of information that are stored by your Device’s web browser. Pixel tags are very small images or small pieces of data embedded in images, also known as “web beacons” or “clear GIFs.” Pixels can recognize cookies and collect the time and date a page is viewed. They also collect a description of the page where the pixel tag is placed and similar information from your Device.

We may allow third parties to place and read their own cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to collect information through the Platform. For example, our third-party vendors may use these technologies. This information helps us with traffic measurement, research, and analytics.

For information on your ability to control cookies, please see the Choices section below.

6. Location-Based Services and Related Technologies

We may use additional methods to collect information about you when you are physically visiting one of our events or venues. We do this based on location data gleaned from a mobile Device you have registered with us.

The Platform may use geolocation and location presence awareness technology and functionality. This is intended to make the Platform useful at the particular location it is being used. For example, the Platform may offer event-specific promotions, content, and services based on your presence at a particular event.

To offer these services, we may use your Device’s GPS capabilities, or the signal of our BLE presence technology devices which are located in various locations. Those technologies broadcast signals that can be received by a mobile Device on which the Platform is used or installed. When the mobile Device receives geolocation signals, we may send you a message or other information through the Platform if you have provided your consent. This can occur while you are actively using the Platform or while the Platform is running in the background of your device.

7. Your Choices

You have a number of choices about how we handle information we collect or receive about you.

  • Your Choice Not to Share Your Information or Receive Promotional Messages. You may opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us. You can do this by following the instructions in the promotional messages. You may also contact us using the information below.Please note that you will still receive transactional messages from us. 
  • Your Choice to Access/Correct/Delete/Modify Your Information. You may access, modify, verify, correct, or delete some of the information we collect about you through the Platform.

  • “Do Not Track” Signals. Some web browsers may also give you the ability to enable a “do not track” setting. This setting sends a special signal to the websites you encounter while web browsing. Paciolan does not respond to these “do not track” signals. For more information about “do not track,” visit www.allaboutdnt.org.
