If a User chooses to use the FeedOtter Site or the Services, FeedOtter may require such User to provide contact and identity information, billing information, and other Personal Information as indicated on the FeedOtter Site.

During the course of operating FeedOtter’s business, FeedOtter may use Users’ Personal Information to deliver information to Users that may be targeted to Users’ interests. Upon receipt of the first communication of this type, a User will have the opportunity to opt-out of future communications by clicking on unsubscribe link or by following unsubscribe instructions described within the communication. If a User does not want to receive email or other communications from FeedOtter, such User can also contact FeedOtter at support (at) FeedOtter.com. However, as part of a Client’s registration for the Services, such Client may receive certain communications from FeedOtter, such as administrative announcements and customer service messages regarding the Services and products, and Client will not be able to opt out of receiving such communications.

From time to time, FeedOtter may implement solutions designed to more efficiently capture a User’s communications preferences. In any such event, FeedOtter will attempt to reflect any previously stated communicated preferences within such solutions.

FeedOtter does not sell or rent for commercial gain Users’ Personal Information to third parties for their marketing purposes without a User’s consent. FeedOtter may share and Users hereby consent to our sharing of personal information with the following persons or entities:

  1.   Corporate affiliates of FeedOtter to help coordinate the Services or products we provide to Users, enforce our Terms of Use and other agreements, including the User Agreement with Client (if any), and to promote trust and safety.

Unless we tell Users differently, such service providers and other companies and people do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.

iii.               Third parties if we believe that disclosure is advisable or necessary to comply with the law, to enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements, or to protect the rights, property or safety of FeedOtter, our employees, our Users or others. This may include exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

  1. Entities who acquire FeedOtter or its assets. In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, User information, including Users’ Personal Information, is typically one of the business assets that are transferred. Moreover, if FeedOtter, all or its assets or the FeedOtter Site are acquired, or in the unlikely event that FeedOtter goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, User information, including Users’ Personal Information, would be one of the assets that is transferred to or acquired by a third party. Users acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of FeedOtter, its assets or the FeedOtter Site may continue to use Users’ Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.
  2.           Persons or entities with whom a User consents to have User’s Personal Information shared. For instance, when a User requests information, Services or products from FeedOtter or a third party through FeedOtter, or when a User posts information to the FeedOtter Site, a User provides its consent for FeedOtter to share that information with others. Please note that whenever a User posts information on or through the FeedOtter Site, such User is expressly consenting and granting their consent for FeedOtter to share that information with third parties.
  3. Other users of the FeedOtter Site. Some information about a User, such User’s account on the FeedOtter Site, such User’s account activity and, if applicable, a Client’s Store will be provided to or otherwise accessible by other Users of the FeedOtter Site.
