The information we collect may include your name, address, email address, telephone or mobile number, IP address, and – if you’re making a purchase – payment information.

• Location

We collect general information about where traffic and purchases on our Services are coming from around the world. This is used at an aggregate level (that does not identify individual users) to create reports to better understand our engagement with users.

Your information may also be retained so that we can continue to improve your experience with us.

We retain the identifiable data we collect directly for marketing purposes for as little time as possible, after which we employ measures to permanently delete it or, in some cases, anonymize or de-identify the data. We will periodically review the personal information we hold and delete it securely, or in some cases anonymize it, when there is no longer a legal, business, or consumer need for it to be retained.

Other Choices Concerning the Use and Disclosure of Your Information

You may occasionally receive information on products, services, and special deals from Xcitium or may receive informational newsletters. Customers are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having information used for purposes not directly related to the Xcitium service at the point where the information is requested. Customers who consented to receive marketing from Xcitium may also elect not to receive additional promotional communications using the opt-out link provided in each promotional email or by emailing optout@Xcitium.com.

Customers may not opt-out of receiving service announcement updates as they contain important security information about the services. If you receive marketing communications from one or more Xcitium affiliates, you must opt-out individually from each of the affiliates from which you are receiving brand-specific marketing communications.

Your California Privacy Rights

If you are a California resident, you may request information about our disclosure of personal information to third parties or affiliated companies for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us. You must put the statement “Your California Privacy Rights” in the subject field.

We are not responsible for notices that are not labeled or sent properly, or do not have complete information. Non-affiliated third parties are independent from Xcitium and if you wish to receive information about your disclosure choices or stop communications from such third parties, you will need to contact those non-affiliated third parties directly.

7. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY
Xcitium sites, products and services are not directed to children under the age of 13 (up to age 16 in some countries) and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 (up to age 16 in some countries). If we become aware that a child under the age of 13 (up to age 16 in some countries) has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible.

8. DATA SECURITY
Xcitium protects information both online and off-line. The transmission of information, including any payment information, is encrypted and protected using secure sockets layer (SSL) technology.

Stored customer information is kept in a secure environment where access is restricted to employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example billing administration or the development team). Employees are required to use password-protected screen-savers and keep their computers up-to-date.

9. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS
Xcitium is a global business and it, or its service providers, may process, transfer, and store information about our users on servers located in a number of countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA), including in the United States. Since we are committed to protecting your information, we take steps to ensure that there are appropriate safeguards in place when we transfer that data.

In the course of providing Services or otherwise, your data will be transferred to numerous countries including the United States. In some of these locations, data protection laws may be less stringent than in your country. To ensure that your data is adequately protected, we transfer your data subject to suitable safeguards being in place.

In particular, where we transfer your information outside the EEA, we rely on standard EU Model Clauses approved by the European Commission and we transfer the information in accordance with applicable laws and using adequate and appropriate safeguards.
