Privacy Policy

Overview

Our privacy policy and processes at 8.5×14 Media Inc. (“We”, “Us” or “Our”), the owner and provider of the Contractually service, are subject to applicable government laws. We do not send spam, or support the activities of spammers. You have access to edit your information at any time on request to Us. We are committed to protecting the privacy of personal information of identifiable individuals.

When you join us as a member of our Service (the “Service”), we ask for personal information that will be used to activate your account, provide the Service to you, communicate with you about the status of your account, and for other purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.

Consent & Information Collection and Use

By providing personal information to us and by registering with us to provide you with the Service, you voluntarily consent to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information as specified in this Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, we may on occasion ask you to consent when we collect, use, or disclose your Personal Information in specific circumstances. Sometimes your consent will be implied through your conduct with us if the purpose of the collection, use or disclosure is obvious and you voluntarily provide the information.

When you join us as a member of our Service, you will be asked to provide information to create your account and use the Service offered by us. Your email address, name and certain other information about You (“Personal Information”) are required by us to provide the Service.

You will also be asked to create a user name and private password, which will become part of your account information. We may use your account information for the following purposes:

  • To provide the Service to you;
  • To create, manage and control your account information;
  • To communicate with you for the purpose of informing you of changes or additions to the Service, or of the availability of any service we provide;
  • To assess service levels, monitor traffic patterns and gauge popularity of different service options;
  • To verify access rights to services and software;
  • To contact you using email or the web with information regarding our Service and
    other services that are offered;
  • To allow you to purchase and download our current and future services and
    software;
  • To carry out our marketing activities;
  • To enforce this Agreement;
  • To respond to claims of any violation of our rights or those of any third parties;
  • To respond to your requests for customer service;
  • To protect the rights, property or personal safety of you, us, our users and the
    public; and
  • As required or authorized by law.

We may occasionally communicate with you regarding our products, services, news and events. You have the option to not receive this information. We provide an opt-out function within all email communications of this nature, or will cease to communicate with you for this purpose if you contact us at legal@contractual.ly and tell us not to communicate this information to you. The only kinds of these communications that you may not “opt-out” of are:

(1) Communications regarding status updates and communications with other members of the Service, related to the contracts and other content you are managing through the Service; and

(2) Communications required to communicate service-related announcements, including information specific to your account, planned service suspensions and outages. We will attempt to minimize this type of communication to you.

Age of Consent

We do not knowingly provide the Service to, and will not knowingly collect the personal information from anyone under the age of consent.

Rights to Your Information

You have the right to access and edit your information at anytime by signing in to your account for the Service. Sign in is accessible at https://contractual.ly/users/sign_in.

Disclosure

We will only share your information with third parties in accordance with your instructions or as necessary to provide you with a specific service or otherwise in accordance with applicable privacy legislation. As a general rule, we do not and will not sell, rent, share or disclose your personal information without first receiving your permission or as permitted in this policy.

Sharing information as part of negotiating contracts

One of the features of the Service involves negotiating contracts with other members, which inherently involves sharing your information with them. For example, you may fill out a contract form that includes your name and contact information and then invite another person or multiple people to negotiate the contract with you. Or, you may be invited by a member to negotiate a contract with them. When an invitation is accepted, you are then sharing your information related to that contract with the person or people who are participants to that contract. Participants may invite additional people to negotiate the contract;
your information related to that contract will then be shared with those additional people when they accept the invitation.

You acknowledge and agree that by inviting, or accepting an invitation, to negotiate a contract with someone else, you will be sharing your information related to that contract with the current and future participants to that contract.

Aggregated Data

We may also use your Personal Information to generate Aggregated Data for internal use and for sharing with affiliates, subsidiaries and business partners for planning and marketing purposes. “Aggregated Data” means records which have been stripped of information potentially identifying individuals, and which have been manipulated or combined to provide generalized, anonymous information. Your
identity and personal information will be kept anonymous in Aggregated Data.

Change of Ownership or Business Transition

In the event of a change of ownership or other business transition, such as a merger, acquisition or sale of our assets, your information may be transferred.
Your information will be transferred in accordance with applicable privacy laws.

Security

We strive to prevent unauthorized access to your personal information. However, no data transmission over the Internet, by wireless device or over the air is guaranteed to be 100% secure.

We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to encrypt the transmission of your personal information and password as part of your account setup.

We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. If you forget your password, we will ask you for the email address under which you hold your account for the Service and email you a URL where you may reset your password.

Your account information is kept on secure servers and can only be accessed by authorized employees who need to have access to this data in order to fulfill their duties.

Please remember that you control what personal information you provide while using the Service. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your identification, passwords and/or any personal information in your possession for the use of the Service. Always be careful and responsible regarding your personal information. We are not responsible for, and cannot control, the use by others of any information which you provide to them and you should use caution in selecting the personal information you provide to others through the Service. Similarly, we cannot assume any responsibility for the
content of any personal information or other information which you receive from other users through the Service, and you release us from any and all liability in connection with the contents of any personal information or other information which you may receive using the Service.
