Boxmode, (“Boxmode”, “we” or “us”) is an online service provider that offers a set of services and technology applications that enable users to create their own online Projects utilizing our technology platform (the “Boxmode Platform”). Boxmode is not involved in the management of Projects on the Boxmode Platform and is not involved in the decisions relating to the focus of Projects or the Content uploaded or published to Projects using the Boxmode Platform. These are your Projects, and, as a Project Creator, you are responsible for managing them in all respects (including the actions, conduct, and Content of Your Members) in compliance with the Boxmode Terms of Service.
1. How the Boxmode Platform Operates
2. Collection of Personal Information
In order to create a Project using the Boxmode Platform, Project Creators must register for account credentials. When you register for account credentials, Boxmode collects certain Personal Information, including your name, email address, and a password that you create. In addition, Project Creators must provide their credit card or other payment information and telephone number (for customer support purposes). Boxmode or its third-party payment providers use Personal Information related to your billing information solely to administer your services on the Boxmode Platform and to process your transactions, including your purchase of Boxmode Product Plans, Support Services, and upgrades. Project Creators and Third-Party Application Developers might use the Boxmode Platform to collect, use, and retain all information, including Personal Information and Project Data, that is disclosed and uploaded by Members in connection with their use of Projects. “Project Data” means all data collected from a Project or Member and includes registration information (including the Internet protocol (IP) address used by a Member at the time of registration), profile data, answers to Project profile questions, all Content and other information contributed by Members, and statistical information and analytics relating to usage and interactions within the Project. When a User signs up to become a member of a Project, he or she is providing Personal Information to that Project’s Project Creator, and such Project Creator and its designated administrators will have access to all Personal Information and Project Data associated with any such Project. In addition, Project Creators will have the ability to reset Member passwords in the event that a Member loses or can’t remember it. Project Creators and Third-Party Application Developers may also collect additional types of Personal Information. For each Project you use, you should check with the Project Creator regarding its policies governing its collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information. Additionally, for each Third-Party Application that you add to your Project or your profile, you should check with the Third-Party Application Developer regarding its policies governing its collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information.
3. Passive Data Collection
Like most web-based services, Boxmode automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser when you use the Boxmode Platform. We may use a variety of methods, including clear GIFs (also known as “web beacons”), web storage, indexed database and “cookies” to collect this information. The information that we collect with these automated or non-automated methods may include, for example, your IP address, Boxmode client-side scripting information, a unique device or user ID, browser type, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Boxmode Platform, and the “referring URL” (i.e., the page from which you navigated to the Boxmode Platform). We do not link this collected data to other information we collect about you. We may combine collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve our marketing and analytics.
Technologies such as: web storage, indexed database, cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts are used by Boxmode and our partners, affiliates, or analytics or service providers. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the site, caching data for offline availability, tracking users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as an aggregated basis. We use web storage for authentication and to remember the user’s settings. Users can control the use of information at the individual browser level. If you reject web storage, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some features or areas of our site may be limited.
Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our site or to display advertising based upon your Web browsing activity use LSOs such as HTML5 to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 LSOs.
4. Behavioral targeting/Re-targeting
We partner with a third party to either display advertising on our Web site or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third-party partners may use technologies such as cookies, LocalStorage, Session storage, IndexedDB, WebSQL and even Flash Cookies to gather information about your activities on this site and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests.

We may provide Personal Information to third parties for their use in performing internal business functions both for the Boxmode Platform and Web site (e.g., payment processing, maintenance, security, data analysis, email transmission, or data hosting) on our behalf. Transfer of personal information collected from the Boxmode platform to subsequent third parties is covered by the provisions in this Policy regarding notice and choice and the service agreements with our users.
We may disclose Personal Information if we have a good faith belief that doing so is required by a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order or otherwise required by law. Additionally, we may disclose Personal Information where we, in good faith, deem it appropriate or necessary to prevent violation of the Boxmode Terms of Service, or our other agreements; take precautions against liability; protect the rights, property, or safety of Boxmode, any individual, or the general public; maintain and protect the security and integrity of our services or infrastructure; protect ourselves and our services from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations; or assist government enforcement agencies.
8. Change of Ownership
In the event of a change in ownership, or a merger with, acquisition by, or sale of assets to, another entity, we reserve the right to transfer all of your Personal Information, including email addresses, to that entity. We will use reasonable efforts to notify registered users of such a transfer (by a posting on our home page or elsewhere on the Boxmode Platform, or by email to a Member’s email address that was provided to us, as chosen by us in our discretion).
We use industry-standard security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of Personal Information under our control. Although we make good faith efforts to maintain the security of such Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that it will remain free from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or alteration. Further, while we work hard to ensure the integrity and security of our website and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent “hackers” or other unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining this information. We do not assume any liability to third parties whose information you include in your address book, contact list or any similar items, or which you post or transmit in any Content on a Project. To help maintain the security of your account credentials, please keep your password secure. If Project Creators submit certain sensitive data to Boxmode, such as your payment information and log-in credentials, we encrypt that data using SSL encryption. If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Boxmode Platform or providing Personal Information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Boxmode Platform. If a security systems breach occurs, we may post a notice on our homepage, or elsewhere on the Boxmode Platform and may send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us.
