Scope & Consent

This Privacy Policy describes how we handle your personal information for our services on the PIQ Intel websites, tools, mobile applications, and services. It applies generally to the piqintel.org website and content and other related websites where this policy appears in the footer. By use of the PIQ Intel website and services, you expressly consent to our Privacy Policy and collection, storage, use, and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Use

We use information we collect from you, including your personal information, to provide you our services. Additionally, you agree that we may use your personal information to: provide customer support you request; resolve disputes, collect fees, and troubleshoot problems; prevent, detect, and investigate potentially prohibited or illegal activities, and enforce our Terms & Conditions; customize, measure, and improve our services, content and advertising; tell you about our services and those of our corporate family, deliver targeted marketing, service updates, and promotional offers based on your communication preferences; compare information for accuracy, and verify it with third parties; contact you regarding transactions and fee collections to the telephone numbers or email addresses you have provided us; notify you if you have been outbid in an auction (if you choose to receive push notifications); combine your data with other data we collect or obtain; aggregate non-identifiable data arising from the use of our site and services for business purposes; and use demographic data obtained through the services and third parties to improve our services.

Our Disclosure of Your Information

We may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, respond to claims that a listing or other content violates the rights of others, or protect anyone’s rights, property, or safety. Such information will be disclosed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. We may also share your personal information with: service providers under contract who help with our business operations (such as fraud investigations, bill collection, credit card processors, affiliate and rewards programs); other third parties to whom you explicitly ask us to send your information (or about whom you are otherwise explicitly notified and consent to when using a specific service), including the selling party that is offering goods through an auction or tickets for an upcoming event; law enforcement, governmental agencies, or authorized third-parties, in response to a verified request relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you, or any other BC Technologies user to legal liability (in such events, we will disclose information relevant to the investigation, such as name, city, state, ZIP code, telephone number, email address, IP address, fraud complaints, bidding and payment history, and anything else we may deem relevant to the investigation); and other business entities, should we plan to merge with or be acquired by that business entity (should such a combination occur, we will require that the new combined entity follow this Privacy Policy with respect to your personal information or, if your personal information will be used contrary to this policy, you will receive prior notice).

Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and our ability to keep the community free from bad actors, we will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order, or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected legal activity.

Security

Your information is stored on our servers located in the United States. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use several tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.

Third Parties

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. If you disclose your information to others, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. PIQ Intel does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

Links

This website may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that PIQ Intel is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site, and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected by this website.

Children

Although our website is a general audience site, we restrict the use of our services to individuals who can legally contract. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. Please notify us if you believe such information has inadvertently been provided to us so that we may remove it.

We may amend this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the amended terms on this site. All amended terms automatically take effect 30 days after they are initially posted on the Site. If you have questions or concerns that are not addressed online, you may contact us at: support@piqintel.com
