Scope of this Policy
Collection and Use of Personally Identifiable Information
Information You Provide to Us
The personally identifiable information we collect from you allows us to provide you with the Services and to enable users to navigate and enjoy using the Site, Apps and Services. We will also use your personally identifiable information to develop and improve the Site, Apps and Services. We may also use your personally identifiable information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis and research to improve our Services and customer communications.
When you register with us through the Site, Apps or Services and become a Registered User, we will ask you for personally identifiable information. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personally Identifiable Information”).
Personally Identifiable Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, phone numbers, email address, business address, and employer/affiliated organization. We may also use your email address or phone number (if provided by you) to contact you regarding changes to the Services, Site and/or Apps; system maintenance and outage issues; account issues; or otherwise to troubleshoot problems.
In addition, when you use the Site, Apps or Services, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
You acknowledge and agree that you or your employer may enable various other users to access documents containing your Personally Identifiable Information. iScribes is not responsible for how such parties may use your Personally Identifiable Information.
Do not upload or insert any information to or into the Site, Apps or Services that you do not want to be shared or used in the manner described in this section.
If we are requested to disclose your information to a government agency or official, we will do so if we believe in good faith, after considering your privacy interests and other relevant factors, that such disclosure is necessary to: (i) conform to legal requirements or comply with a legal process with which we are involved; (ii) protect our rights or property or the rights or property of our affiliated companies; (iii) prevent a crime or protect national security; or (iv) protect the personal safety of users of the Site, Apps or Services or the public. Because iScribes is a United States corporation and information collected on our Site is stored in whole or in part in the United States, your information may be subject to U.S. law.
We also reserve the right to disclose Personally Identifiable Information and/or other information about users that iScribes believes, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce our agreements, take precautions against liability, investigate and defend itself against any third-party claims or allegations, assist government enforcement agencies, protect the security or integrity of our Site, Apps or Services, and protect the rights, property or personal safety of iScribes, our users and others.
Collection and Use of Non-Personally Identifiable Information
A. Information Collected by Cookies
Cookies allow us to (i) manage, present and keep track of temporary information, such as data you upload onto the Site or through an App for use with the Services; (ii) register you as a Registered User on the Site or Apps or in other various programs associated with the Site or Apps; (iii) remember you when you login to the places on the Site or in the Apps that require you to be a Registered User of the Services; (iv) help us understand the size of our audience and traffic patterns; (v) and collect and record information about what you viewed on the Site or in the Apps or Services.

When you access the Site, the Site automatically collects certain non-personally identifiable information through the use of electronic images known as web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and log files. Such information may include your IP address, browser type, the date, time and duration of your access and usage of the Site and whether you opened emails you received from us.
This information is collected for all visits to the Site and then analyzed in the aggregate. This information is useful for, among other things, tracking the size of our audience and traffic patterns.

Protecting Your Information
Steps We Take to Keep Your Information Secure
Risks Inherent in Sharing Information
Please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you share your information. We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We cannot ensure that information you share on the Site or through the Services will not become publicly available. We are not responsible for third party circumvention of any privacy or security measures used by iScribes. You can reduce these risks by using common sense security practices such as choosing a strong password, using different passwords for different services, and using up to date antivirus software.
You should report any security violations to us at this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Site, the Apps and the Services are not directed to individuals under 18 years old, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from persons under 18 years old. If we learn that we have collected personally identifiable information for a person under 18 years old, we will take reasonable steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from a child under age 18, please contact us by email at email@example.com.
Phishing or False Emails
If you receive an unsolicited email that appears to be from us or one of our members that requests personal information (such as your credit card, login, or password), or that asks you to verify or confirm your account or other personal information by clicking on a link, that email was likely to have been sent by someone trying to unlawfully obtain your information, sometimes referred to as a “phisher” or “spoofer.” We do not ask for this type of information in an email. Do not provide the information or click on the link. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you get an email like this.
If you have concerns about your privacy in connection with your use of the Site, Apps or Services or any general questions related thereto, please tell us by emailing us at email@example.com. We will make every reasonable effort to address your concerns.
