1. The Information that We Collect:
During the registration process, Decentrix, Inc. (Decentrix) asks a number of questions that provides personally identifiable information from the Sponsors (Decentrix partners that distribute our technology) and End Users (subscribers and users of the Decentrix technology). Decentrix uses such information only for its own internal purposes. We will not sell, rent or release a Sponsor or End User's personally identifiable information to any other party except with its explicit permission or as defined in this policy. In addition, we will not access or release the personally identifiable information except at the request of the Sponsor or as defined in this policy.
2. How We Use the Information:
Use of personal information by Decentrix:
We endeavor to limit the amount of information we collect to what we believe is necessary to provide you with the best service and product experience from Decentrix. We gather aggregated information about services and page visits to the Web sites of our Sponsors and End Users. Decentrix also uses profiling data about Sponsors and End users r to achieve these goals.
Personal information, Sponsors and other Third Parties:
Decentrix partners with Sponsors who privately brand our technology to provide applications, services, and products to End Users. Decentrix may also partner with Third Parties, which provide applications, services, or products that are embedded within our technology.
We also collect information by the use of "cookies." Cookies are tiny text documents stored on your computer by our service, which accesses the information they store to permit us to provide you with a customized user experience. Cookies also permit us to track your use of our service.
Most browsers can be set to reject cookies (look in your browser's Internet Options area). If your browser does not accept cookies, however, many of the functions and services we provide may not work properly.
Decentrix's Sponsors or Third Party providers may also use their own cookies and their own tracking methodologies. These practices are subject to the terms of their own privacy policies
3. How Secure is My Information?
Decentrix knows the security of your site and data is important to you and consequently uses industry standard practices to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information, including methods such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers. We make every effort to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. In addition, we always use a secure connection when collecting personal financial information from you. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. There are risks that data could be intercepted or interfered with during Internet transmission or through breaking security measures to protect data stored in our database.
Your Decentrix account is password-protected so in addition to those Sponsors or Third parties who may provide you applications or services, only you and those you designate can access it and view the personal information relevant to your registration. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any registration information.
4. Legal Requirement to Disclose Information:
Decentrix may disclose registration information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights. Decentrix may also disclose information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the Decentrix License and Access Agreement for End Users. We can disclose any personal information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with a violation of the Decentrix License and Access Agreement for End Users, an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us to legal liability.
A Sponsor or End User may update or modify any of its personal information by using its password login at its Decentrix site. For further assistance with this, Sponsors and End Users may send an email to email@example.com.
