Some of such information relates to the business entity on behalf of which you will be using our Digital Tools, some of it relates to individuals. Some of the latter is personally identifiable information ("PII") about: (i) you, either in your personal capacity or in your role of administering a NetChain account for a business entity; (ii) your employees who will be using our Digital Tools; and/or (iii) anyone you sign up to interact with your company on or through our Digital Tools.
The provided information includes: (i) your company's name; (ii) your company's business information, including without limitation, number of employees, industry, annual revenue and accounting system(s); (iii) your company's address, phone number and business tax identification number; (iv) the names, work phone numbers and work email addresses of your employees who will be using our Digital Tools; (v) a credit card to pay for your subscription to our services; and (vi) your company's bank account details if you elect to use our payment service. NetChain will use the above information and other information collected about you to verify your identity and your company's creditworthiness.
NetChain also asks you to provide information about how to contact you not only by email but also by telephone and fax. We will use this information to provide you with updated information and service your account in other ways. We may also use this information to contact you about additional products or services that may be of interest to you. You will have an opportunity to "opt out" of such offers in the future, if you so choose, by following the instructions set forth in the offer that we send you.
Information Collected Using Tracking Technologies We Place
We use tracking technology such as cookies, scripts, and tags to keep track of who visits our Digital Tools. A cookie is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then store it on your system. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. If you do not accept cookies from our Digital Tools, you will not be able to use our Digital Tools. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any PII while on our Digital Tools.
In addition to cookies, we collect the following information from all visitors to our Digital Tools: (i) the name of the domain through which such visitors access the internet; (ii) the date and time you access our Digital Tools; (iii) the internet address from which such visitors linked to our Digital Tools; and (iv) the individual address of the computer such visitors used to access our Digital Tools. We use this information to administer our Digital Tools, to help diagnose and troubleshoot potential server malfunctions, to gather broad demographic information about usage of our Digital Tools, to log all user activity in order to create an audit trail as required by applicable law and to provide inventory and sales information to our customers' vendors.
Tracking Technologies Placed by Third Parties
We partner with a third party to either display advertising on our Digital Tools or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third party partner may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on our Digital Tools and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you interest-based ads, you may opt-out by clicking here www.netchain2.com. Please note this does not opt you out of being served ads. You will continue to receive generic ads.
We may also collect other information as part of the registration process or other processes (e.g., zip code and individual preferences). Certain non-identifying information would be considered a part of your PII if it were combined with other identifiers (e.g., combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. However, the same pieces of information are considered non-identifying information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (e.g., your viewing preferences). We may combine your PII with non-identifying information and aggregate it with information collected from other users to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of our Digital Tools and to analyze and understand how our Digital Tools are used.
How Information May Be Shared
NetChain does not share, rent, or trade PII with third parties for their promotional purposes.
Service Providers and Vendors
We share your PII with third parties as needed to maintain, support and operate our Digital Tools, to perform website-related services, to undertake the services we are providing and to assist us in analyzing how our Digital Tools are used (e.g., hosting services, maintenance services, database management, payment processing, web analytics and improvement of our Digital Tools' features). These third parties have access to your PII only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
We may provide PII to your vendors and/or customers who are parties to your NetChain transaction for the purpose of providing services to you. We may also provide PII to our business partners or other trusted entities for the purpose of providing you with information we believe will be of interest to you.
Third Parties Unaffiliated with NetChain
We may provide PII to your vendors and/or customers who are parties to your NetChain transaction for the purpose of providing services to you. Additionally, we may permit you to use third party services whose products can be supported through our Digital Tools, such as third party data entry service or accounting software providers. NetChain will share PII and support the third parties’ services on our Digital Tools at your direction. When you direct NetChain to share PII with third parties, you agree that NetChain is not responsible for the third parties’ use, misuse, or handling of that PII.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement
NetChain cooperates with government and law enforcement officials or private parties to enforce and comply with applicable laws. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of NetChain or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
Information, including PII, that we collect from our users is considered to be a business asset. As a result, if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition, reorganization or asset sale, your PII may be disclosed, sold or transferred to the third-party acquirer in connection with the transaction as permitted by law.
Aggregate Information and Non-Identifying Information
We may share aggregated information which does not include PII and we may otherwise disclose non-identifying information and log data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes. Any such aggregated information will not contain your PII.
NetChain payment network
As part of the NetChain service, you may optionally allow us to share information with your vendors and/or customers. This information includes your company’s address, phone number, website URL/link, name and email address of each user managing the account; and this information may also include similar business data and/or transactional information, such as bills, invoices and payment data. You can control how much information is shared, respectively, with other NetChain customers and the public, as described in more detail in "Your Profile Visibility – Three Choices" immediately below.
Our Digital Tools enable you to update, correct, and delete/remove PII regarding you, your company and/or your employees at any time. If you have further concerns about how NetChain stores or uses PII, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your Profile Visibility
As a NetChain user, your profile (i.e., certain information about you and your company, including without limitation, your business contact information and your logo), will be accessible by other NetChain users. Other NetChain users will be able to search for your profile. The following information will be displayed in a result of a search run by another NetChain user: (i) company name and (ii) a description of the company's business, including a description of the product and services the company offers (if provided).

If you choose to use our referral service to tell a business partner about our Digital Tools, we will ask you for your business partner's name and email address.

NetChain stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program.
Your business partner may contact us at email@example.com to request that we remove this information from our database.

Modifying Your Information; Cancelling Your Account
Your information may be transferred to and maintained on computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to us, NetChain may transfer PII to the United States and/or other jurisdictions for processing. Your submission of such information represents your consent to that transfer.
Our Policy Toward Children
Our Digital Tools are intended for business-to-business use and are not directed to children under the age of 18. If a parent becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with PII without parental consent, he or she should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we become aware that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with PII, we will delete such information from our files.
On our Digital Tools, we post customer testimonials that may contain PII such as the customer's name. Prior to posting, we obtain the customer's consent to post his or her name accompanying the testimonial. If you wish to update or delete a testimonial, you can contact us at email@example.com.
We place great importance on the safety and security of your PII. We employ certain physical, procedural, and technological measures in an attempt to protect your PII from unauthorized access and use. Although we attempt to keep your PII secure, no security measures are perfect; there is always a possibility that a security breach could occur, resulting in the release of PII.
