Collection and Use of Personal Information
Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person.
The Information We Collect
When you access 3FFICIENT’s website, you provide certain personally identifiable information. Examples of this information may be any of the following: your name, e-mail address, affiliation, personal address, personal phone number, credit card information, demographic information, contact preferences, and personal and/or professional opinions.
When you subscribe to our online newsletters, there are instructions at the bottom of your e-mail newsletter telling you how to unsubscribe if you ever wish to do so.
When you make an online purchase at our store, your credit card information is shared with our secure processing entity but not stored on our servers. Your delivery information may be shared with our affiliates to deliver goods and services you ordered from us.
3FFICIENT may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience.
Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent. Kids, please, be sure to ask your parents for permission before you send any information about yourself to us or anyone else online or over the Internet.
Disclosure to Third Parties
At times 3fficient may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with 3fficient to provide products and services, or that help 3fficient market to customers. For example, when you purchase and activate Fácil, you authorize 3fficient and your carrier, if applicable, to exchange the information you provide during the activation process to carry out service. If you are approved for service, your account will be governed by 3fficient and your carrier’s respective privacy policies. Personal information will only be shared by 3fficient to provide or improve our products, services and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.
3fficient shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, extending credit, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever 3fficient operates.
It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for 3fficient to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
