You decide which personal information you provide to iCat. iCat is fully committed to respecting your privacy, protecting the information you provide to us and to complying with the applicable data protection laws and regulations.
1. What do we do with your PII?
(a) Registered Users. When you register to obtain a user account on our Website ("Registered User"), we ask you to provide your email address to create your account and establish a password and profile. Providing your real name and any additional PII is optional for the free account. Providing your email address will allow us to send you your password if you should forget it. If you voluntarily provide your real name in connection with any content you submit to the Website, in addition to your email address, your name may be associated with the content you contributed. We will also use that PII to establish and maintain your account (e.g. to send you important information about Service updates or customer surveys) and provide you with the features we provide for Registered Users, e.g. for the purpose of sending you our monthly newsletter as provided in Section 2(e) below.
(b) Premium Account. If you subscribe to a premium account, we use and retain your PII to provide you with the relevant agreement, to process your application and to collect payment. If we ask you for your payment information, we transfer this information in a secured format. iCat does not sell or otherwise distribute your payment information.
(c) Emails, Newsletters and Notifications. We use the PII you provide to us when you send us emails to respond to your request, for example to reply to your email. We also use your PII when you sign up as a Registered User to use our Services in order to send you notifications relating to your account and if you do not object to the use of your email address for that purpose, to send you our newsletter.
2. Does iCat disclose or share your PII?
As far as iCat works together with contractors and service providers to deliver the Services, your PII will be accessible to such third parties only if and in so far as this is necessary for technical administration and maintenance of the Services. iCat may disclose your PII to third parties if you explicitly consent to it and if and, as iCat is required to do so by applicable law.
3. How do we protect and secure the PII you provide on our Website?
iCat has implemented a variety of measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of PII that iCat stores and controls. However, no website can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.
