1. Privacy Policy for the Assuaged website, mobile app, and services

Elements of our Privacy Policy include the following:

  • The categories of personally identifiable information (“PII“) we collect.
  • How we disclose your information.
  • How you can change your information.
  • What type of security we use to protect your information.
  • How we may change this Privacy Policy.

By submitting PII through our Website, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, and you expressly consent to the processing of this PII by our Privacy Policy.

Who We Are. The Assuaged website and its services, including the Mobile App and Missions, is owned by Assuaged LLC. Information collected by Assuaged’s website, app, email contact, or other methods of communication are all collected by Assuaged LLC.

A Note About Children. We do not intentionally gather PII about visitors who are under the age of 13.

A Note To Users Outside Of The United States. Your PII may be processed in the country in which it was collected and in other countries, including the United States, where laws regarding processing of PII may be less stringent than the laws in your country.

  1. COLLECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION

By Assuaged. If you contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, to send you a reply. When you post messages on the bulletin board, chat room, blog or forum of our Website, the information contained in your posting will be stored on our service provider’s servers.

By Cookies. A cookie is a small text file stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes such as site visitation. We use cookies on this Website. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any PII you submit while on our Website. If you choose to disable cookies, some areas of our Website may not work properly.

  1. DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION

Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable). We share aggregated demographic and usage information about Website users with our business partners, such as product data providers, food manufacturers, and retail stores. This information does not identify individual users. We do not link aggregate user data with PII.

Legal Disclaimer. We reserve the right to disclose your PII as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights (or those of our Website users) and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Website.

Disclosure to Third Party Service Providers. We may share your PII with our third party service providers to provide you with the Website and Services. Except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, these third party service providers are required not to use your PII other than to provide the services requested by Company. You expressly consent to the sharing of your PII with our service providers for the sole purpose of providing services to you.

Marketing. We do not share your PII with third parties for promotional purposes unless you have opted-in to such disclosure. If you have opted-in to have your PII shared, to opt-out from receiving further communications from any third party that is not our agent or service provider, please contact that marketing partner/affiliate directly. We will only contact you with promotional, product usage and customer service emails if you opt-in by providing us with your email address. When you receive such emails from us, you may indicate a preference to stop receiving further emails from us, and you will have the opportunity to “opt-out” by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the e-mail you receive. Despite your indicated e-mail preferences, we may send you notices of any updates to our Terms of Service or Privacy Policy.

Links To Other Websites. If you click on a link to a third party site, you will leave the site you are visiting and go to the site you selected. Because we cannot control the activities of third parties, we cannot accept responsibility for any use of your PII by such third parties, and we cannot guarantee that they will adhere to the same privacy practices as Assuaged. We encourage you to review the Privacy Policies of any other service provider from whom you request services.

Bulletin Boards/Chat Rooms/Blogs/Forums. If you use a bulletin board, chat room, blog or forum on this Website, you should be aware that any PII you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the PII you choose to submit in these forums.

Social Media (Features) and Widgets. Our Web site includes Social Media Features, such as the Facebook Like button and Widgets, such as the Share this button or interactive mini-programs that run on our site. These Features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the Feature to function properly. Social Media Features and Widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site. Your interactions with these Features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

  1. COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE SITE

Service-related Announcements. We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email.

Customer Service. Based upon the PII you provide us, we may send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email.

Updating Personally Identifiable Information. If your PII changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may update or deactivate it by making the change on our member information page, by emailing our Customer Support at hello@assuaged.com, at the contact information listed below. We will respond to your request within 30 days.

  1. DATA RETENTION

We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services contact us at hello@assuaged.com. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

  1. SECURITY

The security of your PII is important to us. We follow accepted industry standards to protect the personally identifiable information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

  1. CHANGES IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY

If we decide to change our privacy practices, we will post those changes to this Privacy Policy, the home page, and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, so please review it frequently. If we change how we use your personally identifiable information, we will notify you here, by email, or through a notice on our home page. Any material changes to this Privacy Policy will be effective upon the earlier of thirty (30) calendar days following our dispatch of an e-mail notice to you or thirty (30) calendar days following our posting of notice of the changes on our Website. These changes will be effective immediately for new users of our Website.
