What Does this Statement of Privacy Cover?
This Statement of Privacy covers The Spot’s treatment of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that The Spot obtains when you access the Sites or use our services. This policy does not cover the practices of other companies or any companies that use The Spot’s Sites or services.
Collection of your Personal Information
The Spot may collect personal information such as your name and contact information, or that of your business. There are a number of ways by which we might obtain your information, including but not limited to the following:
- Online Form Submissions
- Contest Entries
- Customer Experience Surveys
- Event Registrations
- Written Requests
Upon purchase of our products and/or services, we may also collect your billing or credit card information. Payment information is used solely to complete the purchase transaction. When registering for our company services, or when requesting additional information from The Spot about our products or offerings, we may ask for additional personal information such as your birthday. Please note that information submission is voluntary, and you may opt out of providing additional details by simply leaving spaces blank. In the event that you wish not to disclose information in a required form field, simply enter “N/A” or, if the form does not allow it, contact us through any method on our Contact page to determine an acceptable solution.
In an effort to better understand our website’s audience, and to improve the overall user experience, The Spot may also collect anonymous demographic information which is not unique to you. Information about your computer hardware and software may also be automatically collected by The Spot, including your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used for our overall business operations, to maintain and improve the quality of our service, and to provide general statistics regarding the use of The Spot website. We encourage you to review the privacy statements of any and all websites you link to from The Spot to gain a better understanding of how those sites collect, use and share your information. The Spot is not responsible for privacy statements or content on websites outside of those of our own company.
Storage and Use of your Personal Information
The Spot collects and uses your personal information to operate our websites and deliver your requested products and/or services. We may also use your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from The Spot and our affiliates. In addition, The Spot may contact you via survey to gauge your opinions of current services or of potential new services that may be offered
The Spot may keep requisite account, contact and personal information on file throughout the duration of our business relationship, or until you otherwise request removal. Please refer to opt-out information found later in this privacy statement for insight into removing your information from our system.
Please note THE SPOT DOES NOT SELL, RENT OR LEASE CUSTOMER LISTS TO THIRD PARTIES. We may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (email address, name, physical address and telephone number, for instance) will be transferred to the third party. The Spot may share data with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, send you electronic or physical mail, provide customer support or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services for The Spot, and they are required to keep your information confidential.
The Spot may track the websites and pages our users visit within our Site(s), in order to determine which products, services or resources are most popular. This data aids us in providing useful, customized content and service to customers whose behavior indicates they are interested in a particular offering.
The Spot will disclose your personal information without notice only if required to do so by law, or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on The Spot or the site, protect and defend the rights or property of The Spot, and act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of The Spot website users or the public.
The Spot website may use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file placed on your hard disk by a web page server, and one of its primary purposes is to save you time. Cookies tell the web server that you visited a specific website or page before and aid in streamlining your user experience. For example, if you personalize The Spot pages or register with The Spot site, a cookie helps us recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of inputting personal information such as billing addresses, shipping addresses and the like. When you later return to The Spot website, cookie information can be retrieved, customizing your online experience with features, settings and information you previously provided.
Please note that cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. You enable The Spot to obtain any other cookies used on your website in conjunction with The Spot service.
Should you wish to interact with The Spot website without tracking, you may adjust your browser settings to decline cookies — or enable your browser’s do not track (DNT) feature.
Protecting Your Personal Information
The Spot secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. We routinely scan our source code to check for weaknesses or vulnerabilities. When personal information is transmitted to other websites (such as credit card transmissions as part of a financial transaction), that information is protected through the use of encryption such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.
Children under Thirteen
The Spot does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, you must ask your parent or guardian for permission to use this website.
Opting Out, Unsubscribing and Updating Your Information
We respect your privacy and want to ensure the information retained within our system is not only up to date, but willingly provided. If at any point you wish to know what personal information The Spot has on file, revise your personal information or opt out of company communications, simply contact us through either of the methods below. A representative of The Spot will be glad to help.
Changes to this Statement
Merger or Transfer
Should The Spot make the decision to sell, merge or transfer any part of our business, part of that sale may include your personal information.
The Spot welcomes your questions or comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe we have not adequately adhered to this privacy statement, or if you have suggestions as to ways we can improve upon the protections offered, please contact us at:
