The following personally identifiable information is required when you register for an account:
We also collect the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave the ObjectRocket Site, as well as the IP address of the computer you are using (or the proxy server you use to access the ObjectRocket Site), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, mobile device operating system (if you are accessing the ObjectRocket Site using a mobile device), as well as the name of your ISP or your mobile carrier in order to provide us with a way to verify your identity, and to provide us with information that we aggregate with that of other users in order to help diagnose problems with our server, run the ObjectRocket Site better and to communicate with advertisers (see “How we use information we collect from you,” below).
We may collect information through the Object Rocket Site in order to, among other things, accurately categorize and respond to third party inquiries and investigate breaches of our terms.
We may collect information about the fact that you use certain features and functionality or the ObjectRocket Site, click on ads, or participate in research initiatives like polling and surveys on the ObjectRocket Site.
While your browser may accept cookies automatically, you can change the settings on your browser to prevent our cookies from being downloaded automatically, or to notify you that they are ready to be downloaded. The latter will give you the option of whether or not you want to accept our cookies. If you decide to decline our cookies, however, some of the ObjectRocket Site’s features or services may not function as well as they would have had you accepted our cookies
The ObjectRocket Site may also contain very small, transparent, electronic images called “Web Beacons” that allow us to count those who have visited the ObjectRocket Site pages on which they are located. Web Beacons are not used to access your personally identifiable information, but rather are a method for us to assemble aggregated statistics about the usage of the ObjectRocket Site. While you cannot decline Web Beacons, you can decline all cookies and therefore render the Web Beacons ineffective. We may use Web Beacons with respect to our mobile applications as well, if any.
In sum, we collect the following information from you:
You can change your e-mail and contact preferences at any time by logging into your account and changing the settings related to your email notification choices. Unfortunately, you cannot opt-out of receiving service messages from us.
You may unsubscribe from ObjectRocket emails at any time by either clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link in the footer of the email or logging into your account, clicking settings and then clicking on “Edit Subscriptions.” Removing your name from the email list may take up to ten (10) days.
We take your privacy very seriously, and we do not sell, rent, or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to third parties for marketing purposes. The only instances in which we disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties is as follows:
We disclose your personally identifiable information to companies and individuals who perform duties on our behalf, such as website hosting, marketing and customer service companies. While these companies may have access to your personally identifiable information in order to perform their jobs, they are prohibited from sharing your information with any other individual or company.
We will consider releasing, and may release, personally identifiable information to third parties to comply with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order. We also may release personally identifiable information in order to prevent a crime, for national security, to protect our rights and property and to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
We may disclose and transfer your personally identifiable information to a third party that acquires all or a substantial portion of our business, whether by way of merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a substantial portion of our assets. In addition, in the unlikely event that we become the subject of a voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy proceeding, we or our trustee in bankruptcy may sell, license or otherwise dispose of your personally identifiable information in a transaction approved by a bankruptcy court. If all or a substantial portion of our business is sold, you will be notified by e-mail or a notice posted on the ObjectRocket Site.
We may use information that does not allow you to be identified (“Aggregate Information”) to better design the ObjectRocket Site and to share with our advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser or potential advertiser that a certain number of individuals visited a certain area on the ObjectRocket Site. We also might share Aggregate Information regarding the overall demographics of the users of the ObjectRocket Site, such as their age or sex. Depending on the circumstances, we may or may not charge advertisers for this information.
Notwithstanding anything else herein, we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customized ads, content or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies.
The ObjectRocket Site contains links to other websites that may be of interest to you. We do not have control over these websites, however, and therefore are not responsible for their privacy policies or practices. Please make sure to review the privacy policies of these websites so that you will be familiar with them.
We have implemented a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personally identifiable information. We keep your personally identifiable information on a central database on a secured network in the United States that can be accessed only by a limited number of persons who are required to keep such information confidential. We audit our network regularly for possible vulnerabilities and attacks.

Although we have made reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information, we cannot promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information will always stay private. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. We also cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to circumvent our security measures and obtain access to your personally identifiable information and use it for improper purposes. As a user of the ObjectRocket Site, you agree that you assume all risks regarding your use of the ObjectRocket Site, transmissions made over the internet generally, and your sharing of your personally identifiable information.

To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before sending your personally identifiable information or making corrections to it. Please be aware that even after your request for a change is processed, we may, for a time, retain residual information about you in our backup and/or archival copies of our database.
While we have developed default settings for accounts, we encourage you to review your account settings and adjust them according to your preferences.
If you close your account, we have no obligation to retain your information, and may delete any or all of your account information without liability. However, we may retain certain data contributed by you if we believe it may be necessary to prevent fraud or future abuse, or for legitimate business purposes, such as analysis of aggregated, non-personally identifiable data, account recovery, or if required by law. We may also retain and use your information if necessary to provide the ObjectRocket Site services to others. We disclaim any liability in relation to the deletion or retention (subject to the terms herein) of information or any obligation not to delete the information. We do not control when search engines update their caches, which may contain certain public profile information that has since been removed from our publicly viewable database.
