  • We protect your personal information and use it only in connection with your use of our Website and Software Platform as set forth in our Terms of Use and as described in this Privacy Policy.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Security: We have implemented industry standard administrative, technical, and physical security safeguards designed to protect the personal information that you provide.  Access to your data on our Service is password-protected, and data is protected by SSL encryption when it is exchanged between your web browser and our Service. We also support secure https access to the everee.com website. To protect any data you store on our servers, we also regularly monitor our system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks.

As you know, however, the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, and as a result, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us.  There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our administrative, technical, or physical safeguards.  It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information.  We encourage you keep your account safe by using a strong password.

Storage and Processing: Your information collected through the Service may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which we, our affiliates, or our service providers maintain facilities.  If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction, and you consent to the transfer of information to the U.S. or any other country where we, our affiliates, or service providers maintain facilities as well as to the use and disclosure of information about you in connection with the foregoing as described in this Privacy Policy.

Changes to this Privacy Policy: We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time.  If we make material changes to the Privacy Policy, we will provide notice to you though the Website or by some other means. Please review this Privacy Policy frequently, and any notice we provide about material changes carefully.  Using our Service after a notice of changes has been communicated to you or published on the Website shall constitute consent to the changed terms or practices.

California’s Shine the Light Law: California Civil Code Section 1798.83, known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits Users who are California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties.  Requests may be made only once a year and are free of charge. Under Section 1798.83, we currently do not share any personal information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes.

California’s Do-Not-Track Disclosure: As required by the California Online Privacy Protection Act (California Business and Professions Code Sections 22575-22579), we note that although we do our best to honor the privacy preferences of our Users, and have implemented industry standard safeguards as described above, we do not respond to Do-Not-Track signals from your browser at this time due to the lack of a neutral and consistent industry standard.  We do not collect personal information about your online activities over time and across third party websites or services.  However, when we use third-party services, data, and software tools to target advertising to you, these third parties may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across third party websites or services.

The Service is not directed to children under 13 and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13.  However, if a child under the age of 13 is a dependent on a benefits plan we may collect information about the child from the child’s parent, or legal guardian, or from insurance carriers and third-party administrators.
