Company’s Collection of Personal Information:
Your Public Disclosure of Personal Information:
II. WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES NETCITO COLLECT?
We receive and process personally identifiable and non personally-identifiable information from you to enable us to personalize and improve our services, communicate with users about our Website and Services, and allow users to set up a user account and profile that can be used to access additional Services and interact with other users through the Website. We collect the following types of information from our customers:
A. Personally Identifiable Information You Provide to Us:
We receive and store any information you provide to us. The types of personally identifiable information collected may include your real name, user name, address, email address, IP address, UDI number, location, listings created, private messages, comments and reviews posted, and any other information necessary for us to provide our Services, conduct Company financial and operational activities, including technical and processing services and analysis of website performance. We may anonymize your personally identifiable information so that you cannot be individually identified, and provide that information to our partners. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to register with us or to take advantage of some of our features.
B. Non Personally-Identifiable Information.
Non personally-identifiable information is information that you submit or we collect that, by itself, cannot be directly associated with you. This may include your gender, age, ZIP code, transactions, income, household size, and other information we collect from the patient survey. It may also include IP address (when it is unassociated with any personal information), the domain name and browser that you use to access the internet, the pages that you visited on our site and the address of the web site that you visited immediately prior to visiting our site.
We use your non-personally identifiable information for research and statistical purposes, to remember your preferences, to communicate with you and to monitor and improve the quality of our information and website.
C. Electronically Collected Personal Data:
“Log Files” are files in your hard drive that store usage data such as internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and internet service provider (ISP) and access time. Whenever you interact with our Website, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested.
“Web Beacons,” “Clear Gifs” or “Web Bugs” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that are used to track the online movements of internet users. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for us and for advertisers. We may transmit a web beacon file to you through the Website from an ad network. Web beacons enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.
We use electronically collected data to remember your preferences, to communicate with you, to facilitate your communication with other users, and to monitor and improve the quality and visibility of our mission, information and website. We use such user data in aggregate form, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. For example, this aggregate data tells us the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Website, how often users use parts of the Website, so that we can make the Website appealing to as many users as possible. We may also provide this aggregate information to our partners, so that they can understand how often people use their services and our Website, so that they, too, can provide you with an optimal online experience.
D. Email and Other Communications:
When you register for the first time on Netcito, you will be automatically opted in to receive email notices, which may include notification if someone sends you a message or invites you to join a Netcito list or group, new friend or follower requests, newsletters and announcements, notification of new activity on your lists, and notices about public Netcito activity by your friends or followers. We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. This confirmation helps us make emails more interesting and improve our service. If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please indicate your preference on your user profile page, and by emailing us at “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
III. HOW NETCITO SHARES THE PERSONAL INFORMATION IT RECEIVES?
We neither rent nor sell your personally identifiable information to anyone without your permission. We share your personal information in personally identifiable form only as described below.
We allow advertisers and/or merchant partners (“Advertisers”) to choose the demographic information of our users who will see their advertisements and/or promotional offers and you agree that we may provide any of the information we have collected from you in non-personally identifiable form to an Advertiser, in order for that Advertiser to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements and/or offers. For example, we might use the fact you are located in San Francisco to show you ads or offers for San Francisco businesses, but we will not tell such businesses who you are. We may transmit a web beacon file to you through the Website from Advertisers or an ad network.
B. Affiliated Businesses and Third Party Websites We Do Not Control:
In certain situations, businesses or third party websites we’re affiliated with may sell items or provide services to you through the Website (either alone or jointly with us). You can recognize when an affiliated business is associated with such a transaction or service, and we will share your Personal Information with that affiliated business only to the extent that it is related to such transaction or service. One such service may include the ability for you to choose to automatically transmit Third Party Account Information to your Website profile or to automatically transmit information in your Website profile to your third party account. We have no control over the policies and practices of third party websites as to privacy or anything else, so if you choose to allow these automatic transmissions, please review all third party websites’ policies.
We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
D. Other Users:
Content that you voluntarily disclose on your profile or other publicly available portions of the Website (including without limitation images, captions, and comments) can be collected and used by other users who may redistribute your content through the internet and other media channels. Additionally, if you sign into the Website through a third party social networking site or service, your list of “friends” from that site or service may be automatically imported to the Website, and such “friends,” if they are also registered users of the Website, may be able to access and use certain non-public information you have entered in your Website user profile.
E. Communication about the Website:
As part of the Website and Services, you may receive communications from us, whether by email or other means. We and our agents may send you email, contact you, or engage you in other communication that we or they determine relate to your use of the Website.
F. Promotional Offers:
We may send offers to certain users on behalf of other businesses. However, when we do so, we do not give the other business your name and address. If you do not wish to receive these offers, please send us an email at “email@example.com”.
G. Transfers of Business Assets:
In the event the Company goes through a transaction, such as a merger, being acquired by another entity, bankruptcy, or selling all or a portion of its assets, users’ Personal Information may be part of the business assets transferred. We can provide no assurance that user will be notified in advance of the transfer, if any, of their personal information in connection with any such transition or transfer.
H. Protection of Netcito and Others:
We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we reasonably believe is necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Netcito, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
I. With Your Consent:
Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.
IV. IS PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT ME SECURE?
Your account is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password and/or other sign-on mechanism appropriately and limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account. If you access your account via a third party site or service, you may have additional or different sign-on protections via that third party site or service.
We endeavor to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Information we hold in our records, but we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, malware and viruses, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time. In the event that we believe that the security of your Personal Information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we will endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, we may do so by email.
V. WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION CAN I ACCESS?

Username, password, email address; Social network user credentials; and Other account and user profile information.
