Version Date: 9/27/18

GENERAL

SunIP LLC  (“Company” or “we” or “us” or “our”) respects the privacy of its users (“user” or “you”) that use our website located at www.SunIP.com, including other media forms, media channels, mobile website or mobile application related or connected thereto (collectively, the “Platform”). The following Company privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains the types of information that we may gather about or collect from you in connection with your use of the Platform. It also explains the conditions under which we use and disclose that information, and your rights in relation to that information. Our Platform is hosted in the United States of America and is subject to U.S. state and federal law. If your use of our Platform would be unlawful in your jurisdiction, please do not use the Platform.

BY USING OR ACCESSING THE PLATFORM, YOU ARE ACCEPTING THE PRACTICES DESCRIBED IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY.

COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF NON-PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION

Users of the Platform Generally

“Non-Personally-Identifying Information” is information that, without the aid of additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person. “Personally-Identifying Information,” by contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person.

We analyze Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Platform to help us better understand how the Platform is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, we are able to better design the Platform to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use. From time to time, we may also release aggregated Non-Personally-Identifying Information such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Platform.

Web Cookies

A “Web Cookie” is a string of information that assigns you a unique identification that is stored on your computer, and that your browser provides to the Platform each time you submits a query to the Platform. We use cookies on the Platform to keep track of services you have used, to record registration information regarding your login name and password, to record your user preferences, to keep you logged into the Platform, and to facilitate purchase procedures. We also use Web Cookies to track the pages that users visit during each Platform session, both to help Company improve users’ experiences and to help Company understand how the Platform is being used. USERS WHO DO NOT WISH TO HAVE WEB COOKIES PLACED ON THEIR COMPUTERS SHOULD SET THEIR BROWSERS TO REFUSE WEB COOKIES BEFORE ACCESSING THE PLATFORM, WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE PLATFORM MAY NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY WITHOUT THE AID OF WEB COOKIES. PLATFORM USERS WHO REFUSE WEB COOKIES ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RESULTING LOSS OF FUNCTIONALITY.

Web Beacons

A “Web Beacon” is an object that is embedded in a web page or email that is usually invisible to the user and allows Platform operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular web page or an email. We may use Web Beacons on the Platform and in emails to count users and to deliver co-branded services. Web Beacons are not used to access users’ Personally-Identifying Information.

Analytics

We may use third-party vendors to provide analytics services, inform, optimize, and serve ads based on your past activity on our Platforms and applications, including Google Analytics for Display Advertising. These vendors may use Web Cookies, Web Beacons and other technologies to collect information about your use of the Platform. This information may be used by us and others to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver advertising and content targeted to your interests on our service and other Platforms and better understand your online activity. If you do not want any information to be collected and used by Google Analytics, you can install an opt-out in your web browser (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/) and/or opt out from Google Analytics for Display Advertising or the Google Display Network. You can do so by using Google’s Ads Settings (www.google.com/settings/ads).

Mobile Devices

If you use a mobile device to access our Platform or download any of our applications, we may collect device information (such as your mobile device ID, model and manufacturer), operating system and version information, and IP address. We send you push notifications if you choose to receive them letting you know when someone has sent you a message, or for other service-related matters. You can opt-out from receiving these types of communications by turning them off at the device level. We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile software on your phone. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any Personally-Identifying Information you submit within the mobile application.

Third Party Advertisers

We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit the Platform. These companies may use information (not including any Personally-Identifying Information) about your visits to this and other Platforms. We do not identify you to the advertiser. Opt out information is available at http://networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION

Platform Registration

Much of the Personally-Identifying Information collected by Company about users is information provided by users themselves when (1) registering for and using our service, (2) participating in polls, surveys or other features of our service, or responding to offers or advertisements, (3) communicating with us, (4) creating a profile, or (5) signing up to receive newsletters. That information may include your name, address, email address, and telephone number, and, if you transact business with us, financial information such as credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information. We also may request information about your interests and activities, gender, age, birthday, username, hometown and other demographic information, and information we consider relevant. You are under no obligation to provide us with Personally-Identifying Information of any kind, but be aware that your refusal to do so may prevent you from using certain Platform features.

BY REGISTERING WITH OR USING THE PLATFORM, YOU CONSENT TO THE USE AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION AS DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION.

General Use

We use the Personally-Identifying Information that we have collected from or about you to: deliver the products and services that you have requested; manage your account and provide you with customer support; communicate with you by email, postal mail, telephone and/or mobile devices about products or services that may be of interest to you either from us, our affiliate companies or other third parties; develop and display content and advertising tailored to your interests; resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, measure interest in our services, inform you of updates, customize your experience, detect and protect us against error, fraud and other criminal activity, enforce our Terms of Use, and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection.

Online Postings

We may provide areas on our Platform where you can post reviews and other information relating to your activities on the Platform. We cannot control who reads your posting or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily post, so we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to your personal information.

Company Disclosures

We may share or disclose Personally-Identifying Information as follows:

  • With such third party vendors as we deem necessary for facilitating the provision of services by these third party vendors to you.
  • With our authorized service providers that perform certain services on our behalf, such as  fulfilling orders, providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business and sales analysis, performing translation, proofreading, patent filing, and related services, supporting our Platform functionality, and processing credit card payments.
  • Emails from us to you about products and services that we believe may be of interest. You can opt out by using the unsubscribe link or contacting us.
  • When we believe disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of our Company, our users, our employees, or others; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; or to enforce our Terms of Use or other agreements or policies; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.
  • To a successor organization in the event of a merger, acquisition, or bankruptcy or other sale of all or a portion of our assets. Other than to the extent ordered by a bankruptcy or other court, the use and disclosure of all transferred Personally-Identifying Information will be subject to this Privacy Policy, or to a new privacy policy if you are given notice of that new privacy policy and are given an opportunity to affirmatively opt-out of it. Personally-Identifying Information submitted or collected after a transfer, however, may be subject to a new privacy policy adopted by the successor organization

Changing Personally-Identifying Information; Account Termination

You may at any time review or change your Personally-Identifying Information by going to your account settings (if applicable) or contacting us using the contact information below.  Upon your request, we will deactivate or delete your account and contact information from our active databases. We will retain in our files some personal information to prevent fraud, to troubleshoot problems, to assist with any investigations, to enforce our Terms of Use and to comply with legal requirements. Therefore, you should not expect that all your personal information will be completely removed from our databases. Additionally, we keep a history of changed information to investigate suspected fraud.

CHILDREN

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) protects the online privacy of children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect or maintain personal information from anyone under the age of 13, unless or except as permitted by law.

COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION BY THIRD PARTIES GENERALLY

Third parties, including other users of the Platform, are under no obligation to comply with this Privacy Policy. We neither own nor control the third-parties, their websites or applications that may be accessible through the Platform. Before visiting a third-party, or using a third party application, or otherwise interacting with a third party, whether by means of a link on the Platform, directly through the Platform, or otherwise, and before providing any Personally-Identifying Information to any such third party, users should inform themselves of the privacy policies and practices (if any) of the third party responsible for that Platform or application, and should take those steps necessary to protect their privacy.

We will comply with all applicable data protection and privacy laws & regulations in the performance of our obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”, from the GDPR implementation date) or, until GDPR implementation date, the Data Protection Act 1998 (“Data Protection Laws”).

EU-U.S. PRIVACY SHIELD

We comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries.

SECURITY

The Platform has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. However, even the best security measures cannot fully eliminate all risks. We are not responsible for third party circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures.

PRIVACY POLICY CHANGES

We reserve the right to modify the terms of this Privacy Policy at any time and in our sole discretion. Each time you use the Platform, the current version of this Privacy Policy will apply. Your continued use of the website will constitute binding acceptance of those changes.
