CREDEMA collects Personal Information from Users in a number of ways. For example, we collect personal information when you: (1) register and set up an account; and (2) contact us by e-mail for any reason. When you visit our web site, some information is also automatically collected, such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your computer’s operating system, the browser type, the address of a referring web site, and the time and date of your visit and purchases. We treat this information as personal information if we combine it with or link it to any of the identifying information mentioned above. While these may be some examples of how we can gather and obtain User Personal Information, User shall not consider this to be an exhaustive list.
If Users send emails through the CREDEMA site, the User must understand that the email will include email address and any personal message included. Due to the nature of the e-mail being sent from our site, these emails are not private communications and therefore are not confidential. We have no responsibility to keep such information confidential if a User sends emails through the CREDEMA Site. User shall not use the Site or any software provided through the Site to send spam or content that violates this agreement or any other User agreement. To stop receiving emails from us or our clients, please click the link found at the bottom of each email or update your account preferences.
CREDEMA has put security measures into place in an effort to protect User’s Personal Information while such information is under our control. All Personal Information relating to Users are stored in a reasonably secure environment, separate from the Site. User’s account information is accessible online only through the use of a confidential password. To protect the confidentiality of Personal Information, User must keep its password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. User is solely responsible for all uses of the Site by any person using User password. User shall advise us immediately if User believes its password has been misused or improperly obtained.
CREDEMA gives the User the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us, and to limit the use and disclosure of the User’s own Personal Information for purposes other than which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized. Every non-transactional email sent by our servers includes a link to manage preferences. Use that link to opt-out of any communications from that sender. You can also opt out by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a reference to the email you received. CREDEMA does not sell, rent, or share Personal Information with third parties without User’s prior consent, except in the limited circumstances, such circumstances described in this Policy.

CREDEMA may share Personal Information with third-party vendors who assist us in performing functions necessary to operate our business. These functions may include, but are not limited to, website hosting, credit card transaction processing, and data entry. We limit User Personal Information shared with our third-party vendors to that which we believe is necessary to carry out those functions. In addition, we may disclose Personal Information in the good faith belief that we are lawfully authorized to do so, or that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process or authorities, respond to any claims, or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of CREDEMA, its users, its employees or the public.
