Data Storage And Transfers

Your information collected through the Services may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Inventables or its service providers maintain facilities. If you access and use our Website from a location outside of the United States, any personal data you provide to us or that is otherwise collected may be transferred to and processed in the United States or any other jurisdiction in our sole discretion. The laws that apply to the use and protection of personal data in the United States or other countries or jurisdictions to which we transfer, or in which we process, personal data may differ from those of your country of residence. Users who access or use our Website from jurisdictions outside of the United States do so at their own choice and risk, and are solely responsible for compliance with local law. While we take steps to safeguard your personal data, the United States has not been deemed by the European Commission to ensure an adequate level of protection for personal data. Accordingly, the level of protection provided in the United States or other non-EEA countries and jurisdictions from which you may access our website may not be as stringent as that under EEA data protection standards or the data protection laws of some other countries, possibly including your home jurisdiction.

Data Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. We have taken certain physical, administrative, and technical steps to safeguard the information we collect from and about our customers and Website visitors and Service users. While we strive to use reasonable and appropriate means to help ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee our security measures.

Children’s Privacy

Protecting children’s privacy is important to us. Individuals 16 years of age or under are not eligible to use our Services and should not submit any personal information to us or sign up for their own accounts. Inventables does not knowingly allow children under the age of 16 to sign up for their own accounts. This Website is not designed for or directed at persons 16 years of age or younger, and we do not intentionally or knowingly collect information from anyone under the age of 16 through this Website.

Do Not Track Signals

Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” or similar feature that signals to websites with which the browser communicates that a visitor does not want to have his or her online activity tracked. Not all browsers offer a “Do Not Track” option and “Do Not Track” signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, the Website does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals.

The Website, and email messages from us, may contain links to third-party websites, which may have privacy policies that differ from our own. The inclusion of a link on the Website does not imply endorsement of the linked site or service by us. You should be aware that the collection, retention, and use of any data you provide on these third-party websites will be governed by the privacy policy of the company providing the website and not by this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the practices of such websites.

Public Forums

Any information you may disclose on our Website in blogs, on message boards, in chat rooms, or on other public areas on the Website, or other third-party websites that the Website may link to, becomes public information. Please exercise caution when disclosing personal information in these public areas. We reserve the right to remove any posting or content at our sole discretion.

Privacy Policy Changes

Inventables reserves the right to amend or modify this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will post any revised Privacy Policy on this Website, or a similar website that replaces this Website. By continuing to use any of our Website after we post any revised Privacy Policy, you agree that the terms of the revised Privacy Policy as of the effective date will apply to information previously collected or collected in the future, as permitted by law.
