At Inzpire.me ("inzpire.me", "we", "our" and "us") we are committed to protecting your privacy, and support a general policy of openness about how we collect, use and disclose your personal information.
By using the Website and/or services, you are consenting to the transfer of data, including personal information, from your country to a country that has less stringent laws, and the processing of your personal information in conformance with this policy.
What is Personal Information?

The personal information we may collect in the course of you accessing or using the Website or the Services (including through your initial registration for an account and the subsequent administration of that account) may include, but is not limited to, the following:
- Contact information (such as name, address, postal code, e-mail address and telephone number);

- Demographic information (such as gender, age and occupation) and information about individual preferences; and
- Any other information you may transmit to us or authorize us to obtain from you or a third party in connection with the Services.
How We Use Your Personal Information
We use your personal information to:
- Provide you with personalized Services and a personalized experience on our Website and interactive communication;
- Provide you with timely and reliable Services;
- Do all the things necessary to administer those Services and the Website;
- Research, develop, manage, protect and improve those Services and the Website;
- Advise you about new products and services that may be of interest to you;

When We Disclose Your Personal Information
Except with your consent, we will not sell, license, trade or rent your personal information to or with others.
Inzpire.me reserves the right to disclose personal information to a third party if a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order legally requires or authorizes us to do so.
Inzpire.me also reserves the right to disclose and/or transfer personal information to a third party in the event of a proposed or actual purchase, sale (including a liquidation, realization, foreclosure or repossession), lease, merger, amalgamation or any other type of acquisition, disposal, transfer, conveyance or financing of all or any portion of Inzpire.me or of any of the business or assets or shares of Inzpire.me or a division thereof in order for you to continue to receive the same products and services from the third party.
Knowledge and Consent
Inzpire.me collects personal information about you, from you, or from third parties you authorize us to collect such information from, only when you voluntarily provide it or authorize us to collect it. Typically, we will seek consent for the use or disclosure of your personal information at the time of collection. In certain circumstances, consent may be sought after the information has been collected but before use (for example, when we want to use information for a purpose not previously identified).
The form of consent that we seek, including whether it is express or implied, will largely depend on the sensitivity of the personal information and the reasonable expectations of the individual in the circumstances.
We will not, as a condition of the supply of a product or service, require you to consent to the collection, use or disclosure of information beyond that required to fulfill the explicitly specified and legitimate purposes for which the information is being provided.
Use or Disclosure for Marketing Purposes*
If you have not opted out of receiving marketing materials, we may also use (but will not disclose) your personal information to promote and market additional goods, services and special offers from us, our affiliates and/or our business associates, including by means of direct marketing. We may also disclose your name and mailing address to these affiliates and/or third party business associates so that they can send you promotional materials directly.
You can choose not to allow us to use or disclose your personal information for direct marketing purposes by indicating your preference on the user settings page or by contacting us as outlined below (see "Contacting Us").
Use of Third Party Vendors and Links to Third Party Sites
