Information We May Collect or Receive

Personal Data. Verified by Quin collects user submitted information including but not limited to email address, and age to authenticate users and to send notifications relating to Verified by Quin Services. Verified by Quin may also collect other data either directly or via third-party sign-on services (e.g., Facebook Connect), including but not limited to, IP address or location. Account information may also be collected and used in order to enrich the user experience and facilitate user interaction. Information collected or received by us, solely to the extent any such information can be used to identify an individual person and is considered individually identifiable information within the meaning of the Federal Trade Commission’s Online Privacy Protection Rule found at 16 CFR 312.2, is referred to in this Privacy Policy as “Personal Data.” Each user hereby agrees that all information provided, including, but not limited to any representation made about being of lawful age, shall be truthful and correct.

Non-Personal Data. Verified by Quin also automatically collects certain non-personally-identifiable information, including, but not limited to, aggregated non-personal user data, crash event reports, and device type and browser type, from users and visitors to Verified by Quin Services (“Non-Personal Data”). Non-Personal Data may be used to manage and improve the Verified by Quin web and mobile experience, track usage, and in some cases may be shared with third parties providing services required to implement transactions initiated by you or for other business purposes. If Personal Data is anonymized, aggregated, or modified so that it can no longer reasonably identify a specific user, it is considered Non-Personal Data and Verified by Quin may use and disclose such information for any business purpose.

Information Collection Use and Sharing.
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site and the App. We only have access to and collect information that you voluntarily provide through the Verified by Quin website or app or via email or other direct contact from you. Except to the extent required by law, or as required to fulfill your request (e.g. to process an order or payment), Verified by Quin will not share your Personal Data with any third party without your consent. Third parties used to process payments on behalf of Verified by Quin, do not retain, share, store or use your Personal Data for any secondary purposes. Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about new products or services.

Consent

Your Right to Opt-Out Right and Control Your Information.
You may withdraw your consent above and opt out of receiving solicitations or announcement emails from us. To opt out email us at contact@verifiedbyquin.com,   Please note that because customer lists  are often prepared well in advance of an offering (sometimes a few months before the offer is made), you may continue to receive some offers after you send us a request not to use your  Personal Data for  marketing purposes. We will process your request as quickly as we reasonably can, but it may not be possible to update our systems immediately. We appreciate your patience and understanding in giving us time to carry out your request.

 You can also take any of the following actions at any time by contacting us at contact@verifiedbyquin.com:

Security

Verified by Quin wants to provide you with a secure customer experience. All Verified by Quin accounts are secured by user-created passwords and, in some cases, third-party sign-on services (e.g., Google or Facebook Connect). Verified by Quin takes precautions to ensure that user account information is kept private. We use commercially reasonable measures to protect user information that is stored within our database, and we restrict access to user information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

However, we do not guarantee that these efforts will completely protect user account information. No security measures are perfect or impenetrable and data transmission over the Internet cannot be guaranteed 100% secure. We cannot and do not ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Verified by Quin and you do so at your own risk. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time. We will endeavor to notify users in the event that the security of their personal information is breached or compromised. By submitting Personal Data to the Verified by Quin website of app, you expressly consent to receiving our notification regarding any breach or compromise, or suspected breach or compromise, of the security of your Personal Data by email and as required by law.

We urge you to keep your username, password, and other account access information in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also, remember to sign off your Account when you have finished using the service. This is to ensure that others cannot access your Account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a library or an internet cafe.

Your California Privacy Rights

Effective January 1, 2005, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 (known as the “Shine the Light” law) provides that, if an individual who is a California resident has provided his/her personal information to a business in connection with a business relationship that is primarily for personal, family, or household purposes, and if that business has within the immediately preceding calendar year disclosed such individual’s personal information to a third party and knows or should have known that such third party used the information for its own direct marketing purposes, then that business is obligated to disclose in writing to such individual upon request, what personal information was shared and with whom the information was shared. A business may comply with this law by: (1) having either a  published privacy policy of not sharing a customer’s personal information for third-party direct marketing use unless the customer has first affirmatively opted in to such sharing OR a published privacy policy of not sharing a customer’s personal information for third-party direct marketing use if the customer has opted out to prevent his/her personal information from being shared for third-party direct marketing use; and  (2) notifying the customer of his/her right to opt out and providing a cost-free means for the customer to exercise that right.

California residents may request an information-sharing disclosure from us by emailing your request to contact@verifiedbyquin.com. Please note that, under the law, we are not required to respond to your request more than once in a calendar year, nor are we required to respond to any requests that are not sent to the above-designated email or mailing address.
