We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email, Site forms, or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to deliver an electronic download of a FotoSpout Image or other content.
YOUR ACCESS TO AND CONTROL OVER INFORMATION
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address posted on the Site or via Site contact forms:
+ See what data we have about you, if any.
+ Change/correct any data we have about you.
+ Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
Certain contact information is required for registered FotoSpout members (Members and Contributors) to access the Site’s private online resources and content sections related to the viewing, uploading and downloading of content, photographs or images onto the FotoSpout.com website.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the Site, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted directly to our third party payment processing provider (currently PayPal) in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the page on which you are entering sensitive information.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only those FotoSpout team members who need the information to perform a specific job function (for example, financial reporting, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
In order to download or upload content onto the FotoSpout site, a user must first register as a FotoSpout Member or Contributor using posted registration forms. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about FotoSpout products and services in which you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender or age) about yourself, but it is not required.
PURCHASE AND IMAGE DOWNLOADS
We request information from you on Image Purchase/Download forms. To download an image from the Site (free or otherwise), you must provide contact information (like name and email address) and financial information (like credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to complete your online transaction. If we have trouble processing an order, we’ll use this information to contact you.
We use “cookies” on this Site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to the Site and identify repeat visitors to the Site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you may not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on the Site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on the FotoSpout site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages and content sections on the FotoSpout website are being used. This facilitates analysis by the Site administrative team about web traffic and helps us improve our Site and products and services. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes.
We share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
We use a third-party credit card processing company (currently PayPal) to handle online payment processing for products or services delivered through the FotoSpout website. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond completing your purchases of goods and services delivered through the FotoSpout website.
