Betabit collects personal information when you establish an account, or when you use Betabit Products or Services. When you establish an account, you must provide us with your real name and e-mail address. Whenever you visit the Betabit properties, Betabit receives and records information on server logs from your browser, including IP address, cookie information, and pages you request, and relates it to the PII you provide. Betabit uses this information for the following purposes: fulfill your requests for Products and Services, improve our Products and Services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for clients. The collection of personal information will be limited to that which is necessary for the purposes identified. Once you have an account or have purchased Betabit Products, we reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to the Betabit Service, such as service announcements, and administrative messages that are considered part of your Betabit account.
Personal Information Usage
PII is used for internal and Service-related purposes only. Betabit does not rent, sell, or share PII about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies, except to provide products or services you’ve requested, when we have your permission, or when we provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with Betabit under confidentiality agreements. These companies may provide to us your PII in connection with rewards programs they sponsor, to help Betabit communicate with you, and assist our marketing partners. However, these companies and organizations do not have any independent right to share this information.
Credit card information, if collected, is used only for payment processing and fraud prevention. Credit card information and other sensitive personal information required to process a purchase is not used for any other purpose by our financial services providers or us and will not be kept longer than necessary for providing the services offered by us.
We may disclose PII that we collect, as described above, to affiliated or non-affiliated third parties who are assisting us with providing you with the products and/or services you request or to fulfill the orders you place including without limitation, third parties that provide customer support, card issuance, and credit card processing services assisting us in protecting against or preventing actual or potential fraud, unauthorized transactions, claims or other liabilities, or to investigate potential fraudulent or questionable activities, and/or providing Betabit products under a joint product distribution agreement. We also may disclose PII in response to a law enforcement agency’s request, or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Service, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our products and applicable laws, or as otherwise required or permitted by law or consistent with legal requirements.
We may receive PII about individuals in connection with our support and/or management of a third party’s rewards/loyalty/incentive program. If you have received and registered a Betabit product in connection with a third party’s rewards/loyalty/incentive program, we may share anonymized information about your redemption of that reward with such third party, as requested to improve such programs, or non-anonymized information in connection with such third party’s fraud-prevention program or enforcement of its rewards program terms of service.
In addition, we may transfer PII about you if we or one of our business units are acquired by, sold to, or merged with another company. We reserve the right to transfer all PII in our system in the event that Betabit is sold, merged or otherwise assigned such that control rests with a different entity. We will ensure that that any such transaction includes an agreement that will limit the collection, use and disclosure of PII to those purposes that relate to the transaction.
