BY VISITING THE WEBSITE AND USING THE SERVICE, YOU UNEQUIVOCALLY AND UNAMBIGUOUSLY CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING IN THE UNITED STATES OF ANY INFORMATION COLLECTED OR OBTAINED BY US THROUGH VOLUNTARY SUBMISSIONS, AND THAT U.S. LAW GOVERNS ANY SUCH COLLECTION AND PROCESSING.
We collect two types of information about persons who use the Service: voluntarily provided personal information and automatically collected information.
Personal Information Collected
showd.me collects certain Personal Information about you, which may be supplied when you sign-up for the Service, when your employer enters it into the Service, when you use the Service, when you request services or otherwise when you submit such information. The information that may be collected includes:

The Service may allow you to share information through a third-party social network, such as LinkedIn®. If you use that functionality, we may collect information from those sources about you.

The Service may utilize web beacons, pixel tags, cookies, embedded links, and other commonly used analytic information-gathering tools. Although it may be possible to turn off the collection of cookies through your device, that will interfere with your use of the Service.
Use of Information
Internal Use of Information by showd.me
We accept and gather information in an effort to provide the Service to you and the individual or entity through which you are participating in the Service. We may also use this information to help us develop and improve our Service, fulfill your requests, send materials to you, inform you about our offers, tailor our Service to meet your interests, and for other purposes permitted by law.
Sharing Information Collected with Third Parties, Consultants, and Affiliates
We may share personal and non-personal information with our business associates, consultants, service providers, advisors and affiliates in order for them to provide services to us, to you and to the individual or entity that asked you to participate in the Service. Personal and non-personal information collected by the Service may also be shared with your employer and/or the individual or entity through which you are participating in the Service.
The Service is designed to make certain information available to others that you designate as well as others within the individual or entity through which you are participating in the Service. This information includes both the personal and non-personal information the Service may collect about you.
Further, we may disclose collected information to the extent we believe it necessary to comply with the law, such as in response to a subpoena or court order, to defend a legal claim or otherwise as permitted by applicable law. Additionally, we may transfer your information to successor in interest, which may include but may not be limited to a third-party in the event of an acquisition, sale, merger or bankruptcy.
We employ procedural and technical safeguards to secure your personal information against loss, theft, alteration, and unauthorized access, use and disclosure, including the use of SSL technology and limiting access to information to those within our organization having a need to know such information.
Regardless of the precautions taken by us, no transmission of data over the Internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under our control to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
Access and Control
Some of the information collected about you may be changed through your login dashboard and account control mechanisms.
The Service may contain tools that enable you to share personal information, including sensitive information, with others, through social media and in other ways. Should you choose to use such tools, please exercise caution when sharing sensitive information.
Children and Privacy
We do not knowingly permit users to register for our Service if they are under 13 years old, and therefore do not request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13. If we become aware that a user is under the age of 13 and has participated without prior verifiable parental consent, we will remove his or her personally identifiable registration information from our files. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of 13 who has provided personally identifiable information to us without your approval, please inform us by contacting us at [email protected].

California law allows California residents to request information regarding our disclosures in the prior calendar year, if any, of their personally identifiable information to third parties. To make such a request, please contact us at [email protected] with "Request for Privacy Information" in the subject line. Please include enough detail for us to locate your file; at a minimum, your name, email, and username, if any. We will attempt to provide you with the requested information within thirty (30) days of receipt. We reserve our right not to respond to requests sent more than once in a calendar year, or requests submitted to an address other than the one posted in this notice.
