Information We Collect
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with an efficient and customized experience. This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customize our service to make your experience easier. We only collect personal information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose.
If you choose to use our services, we may require you to provide us with contact information such as your name, street address, phone number, and email address, billing information, shipping information and other personal information as indicated on the forms in the web site. Under some circumstances we may require additional financial information including your credit card number, expiration date, and billing information and other personal information.
Once a user, you may provide additional information in the My WebPage section describing your experiences, skills, and networking objectives. Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration is entirely optional, but enables you to better identify yourself and find new opportunities in the FoundValue Service.
Furthermore in order to invite others to connect with you directly in FoundValue, you will enter their names and email addresses. This information will be used by FoundValue to send your invitation including a message that you write. The names and email addresses of people that you invite will be used only to send your invitation and reminders.
To utilize some FoundValue services, we may request your username and password for other web site(s) that you are using.
As you use our services, our servers will automatically track certain information about you in log files. This information includes your IP address, the URL that you just came from, which URL you go to next, which browser you are using, and which operating system you are using. This is not unique to the web site as many existing web sites automatically collect this information.
The web site may make public web pages, profiles, message boards and blogs available to FoundValue users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information in any of these public forums.
Our Use of Your Information
We use your personal information to facilitate the services you request. We use your personal information, and other information we obtain from your current and past activities on the web site to: troubleshoot problems; collect fees owed; measure interest in our products and services, inform you about offers, products, services, and updates; customize your experience; detect and protect us against error, fraud and other criminal activity; enforce our Agreement; and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection.
Protection of Children
Children (persons under the age of 18) are not eligible to use the web site unsupervised and we ask that children do not submit any personal information to us. If you are under the age of 18, you may only use this web site in conjunction with and under the supervision of your parents or guardians.
Our Disclosure of Your Information
Use of Others’ Information
In the course of using the services at FoundValue you may be exposed to personally identifiable information of other users. Under no circumstances may you disclose personally identifiable information about another user to any third party without the consent of FoundValue and the consent of such other user. FoundValue does not tolerate spam, and we reserve the right to suspend the registration of any user who sends unsolicited email to our other users.
You may not use the FoundValue email to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate our Agreement. FoundValue follows all best-practice and legally required procedures for allowing email recipients to unsubscribe from the FoundValue email. We do not rent or sell these recipient email addresses, email messages or the email addresses of eSpecialists.
Other Information Collectors
FoundValue uses industry standard efforts such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. However, even the most robust security systems are not foolproof and you should consider this when revealing any personally identifiable information to any party over any form of media.
