There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your information with certain third parties with or without further notice to you, as described below:

Personally Identifiable Information:  MY ECO may share your personally identifiable information with third parties for the express purpose of providing the Service to you (e.g. delivering rewards). If we do this, such third parties’ use of your information will be bound by this Privacy Policy. We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of MY ECO (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).

As our business model develops, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer or assign such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or dissolution.

We may share or disclose your information with your consent, such as if you choose to sign on to the Service through a third-party service. We cannot control third parties’ use of your information.

MY ECO may share information collected through our websites with agents or contractors authorized solely to perform services on our behalf, such as providing support for our internal operations.

From time to time, MY ECO may also share information collected through our websites with other reputable third-party organizations whose products or services we feel may be of interest to you.

We do not rent email addresses to third-party organizations.

MY ECO may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect MY ECO’s rights or property.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information: We may share non-Personally Identifiable Information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain MY ECO services.

We may provide aggregate anonymous information concerning member usage to third parties, such as in the case of advertisers, for purposes we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate regarding our program.

How We Protect Your Information

MY ECO takes seriously the trust you place in us. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of the information, MY ECO utilizes commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. MY ECO uses industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving data.

We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to MY ECO or guarantee that your information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. In the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, MY ECO will promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised, in accordance with the notification procedures set forth in this Privacy Policy, or as otherwise required by applicable law.

The Service may contain links to other sites. MY ECO is not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices on other sites. When linking to another site, you should read the privacy policy stated on that site. This Privacy Policy only governs information collected on the Service.
