Overview and Application of Privacy Policy
This Pocket Expert™ Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) covers our treatment of personal information and other information that we collect from our customers when they: (a) access or use the Site and/or Pocket Expert™ Offerings; and/or (b) request to be contacted by us in connection with your use of, or desire to obtain, the Services. Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Pocket Expert™ Website Terms and Conditions (“Terms and Conditions”).

THIS PRIVACY POLICY APPLIES TO OUR CUSTOMERS ONLY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY IN THEIR ENTIRETY, YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR OTHERWISE USE THE SITE AND/OR POCKET EXPERT™ OFFERINGS.

Information Regarding Privacy for Non-Customers
This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of personal information we collect from our customers. Pocket Expert™ may host the platform through which our customers may contact their own consumers (“Third-Party Consumers”).

By way of example, an automotive dealership (our customer) may use the Pocket Expert™ platform to communicate with individuals seeking the dealership’s services (the Third-Party Consumer). Our customers’ privacy practices may differ from those of Pocket Expert™. Additionally, some Third-Party Consumers may be provided additional privacy rights under the laws of states in which they reside, for example the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”). If you are a Third-Party Consumer using the Pocket Expert™ Offerings to communicate with one of our customers and are interested in more information regarding your privacy rights or our customer’s privacy practices, please review the customer’s privacy policy or contact our customer directly. If you have any questions regarding how to locate further information regarding our customers’ privacy practices, please contact us as described in the section “Contact Us” below.

We may permit our third-party agents, service providers and subcontractors to access your personal information (including Third Party Personal Information), but they are only permitted to do so in connection with performing services for us and/or to operate the Site, Pocket Expert™ Offerings and/or Services. They are not authorized to use your personal information for their own benefit. We reserve the right to release current or past personal information (including Third Party Personal Information): (i) in the event that we believe that the Pocket Expert™ Offerings are being, or have been, used in violation of the Terms and Conditions or to commit unlawful acts; (ii) if the information is subpoenaed; provided, however, that, where permitted by applicable law, we shall provide you with e-mail notice, and opportunity to challenge the subpoena, prior to disclosure of any personal information pursuant to a subpoena; or (iii) if we are sold, merge with a third party, are acquired or are the subject of bankruptcy proceedings; provided, however, that if Pocket Expert™ is involved in a bankruptcy proceeding, merger, acquisition or sale of all or a portion of its assets: (A) you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on the Site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices that you may have regarding your personal information; and (B) the Third Party Personal Information will not be used in any way that is not authorized under this Privacy Policy.

These third-party websites have separate privacy and data collection practices and we have no responsibility or liability relating to them.

Security
The privacy of your personal information is very important to us. We endeavor to safeguard and protect our end-users’ personal information. When end-users make personal information available to us, their personal information is protected both online and offline (to the extent that we maintain any personal information offline). When our registration process asks end-users to submit sensitive information (such as credit card information), and when we transmit such sensitive information, that sensitive information is encrypted and is protected with SSL encryption software. Access to your personal information is strictly limited, and we take reasonable measures to ensure that your personal information is not accessible to the public. The servers that we store personal information in are kept in a secure physical environment. We also have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of personal information under our control. Please be advised, however, that while we take every reasonable precaution available to protect your data, no storage facility, technology, software, security protocols or data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Computer hackers may circumvent our security measures and gain access to certain portions of your personal information, and technological bugs, errors and glitches may cause inadvertent disclosures of your personal information; provided, however, that any attempt to breach the security of the network, our servers, databases or other hardware or software constitutes a crime punishable by law. For the reasons mentioned above, we cannot warrant that your personal information will be absolutely secure. Any transmission of data done on or through the Site is at your own risk. Only employees or third party agents who need personal information to perform a specific job function are granted access to our end-users’ personal information. Employees not adhering to our internal privacy policies are subject to disciplinary action. In compliance with applicable federal and state laws, we shall notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your personal information. You will be notified via e-mail in the event of such a breach. Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage, and to engage in remedial measures.

Minors
Visitors under eighteen (18) years of age (or the applicable age of majority, if greater than eighteen (18) years of age) are not permitted to use and/or submit their personal information at the Site. We do not knowingly solicit or collect information from visitors under eighteen (18) years of age (or the applicable age of majority, if greater than eighteen (18) years of age). We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate and monitor the interactive activities of their children.
