We will collect PII from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us.
Users may also visit the Site anonymously. In addition, Users always have the option to refuse to supply PII, however, doing so may prevent them from engaging in certain Site related activities and communicating with us.

How We Use Collected Information
In general, our primary goal in collecting information from and about you is to provide you with the products and services you request while on our Site. In addition, we use the information that we collect to provide and maintain the Site as we deem appropriate in our sole discretion, such as to improve customer service or the Site, to personalize User experience, and to provide any other services that you and rater8 agree to. We may also use the information to contact you to further discuss interest in our company, the goods and services that we provide, and to send information regarding our company or partners, such as promotions and events, as well as to respond to Users’ requests for information. You may be invited to receive an email newsletter or other correspondence by providing an email address.
We may use email addresses to respond to User inquiries, questions, and/or other requests. Users that elect to opt-in to our mailing list may receive emails that include company news, updates, related product or service information, etc. If at any time any User elects to unsubscribe from receiving future emails or contacts, the User may do so by contacting us via our Site.
How We Protect Your Information
We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on the Site. Sensitive and private data exchange between the Site and Users happens over a SSL secured communication channel and is encrypted and protected with digital signatures.
Please note that data that is transported over an open network, such as the Internet or e-mail, may be accessible to anybody. rater8 cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted via such open networks. When disclosing any personal information via an open network, Users should be aware that it is potentially accessible to others, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without Users’ consent. In particular, while individual data packets are often encrypted, the names of the sender and recipient are not. A third party may therefore be able to trace an existing bank account or relationship or one that is subsequently created. Even if both the sender and recipient are located in the same country data may also be transmitted via such networks to other countries regularly and without controls, including to countries that do not afford the same level of data protection as your country. User data may be lost during transmission or may be accessed by unauthorized parties. We do not accept any liability for direct or indirect losses as regards the security of Users’ personal information or data during its transfer via Internet. Please use other means of communication if you think this is necessary or prudent for security reasons.
Access to certain parts of our Site requires a username and password. You are responsible for any action connected with the use of your password, and you should not share your password with anyone. To request a new password, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Changing Your Personal Information
Users can update or remove personal information at any time by contacting us via the Site, but Users should be aware that archival or back-up copies of said information will not cease to exist and rater8 shall not be liable for any problems in this editing process.
Sharing Your Personal Information
We do not sell, trade, or rent Users’ PII to others unless it is to transact such business as the User has contracted us to do, to comply with any legal processes and/or law enforcement requests, or in order to conduct any business as we, in our sole discretion, deem reasonable. We may share generic aggregated demographic information not linked to any PII regarding Users with our business partners, trusted affiliates and advertisers for the purposes outlined above. Users have the right to opt-out of any sharing of information described above (unless required by law), by contacting us at the Site, which is not deemed valid until processed by rater8. It is your obligation to verify that you have been opted-out. rater8 shall not be liable for problems with the opt-out procedures.
Third Party Websites
Users may find advertising or other content on the Site that link to the websites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors, or other third parties. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from the Site. In addition, these sites or services, including their content and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies. Browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link to the Site, is subject to that website’s own terms and policies. Any links to other rater8 websites are similarly subject to those websites’ terms and policies. When you access a linked site you may be disclosing private information. It is your responsibility to keep such information private and confidential.
