We will maintain your data about Our Products as described in this Privacy Policy.
 
Your privacy and the security of your personal information and the personal information of others you post to Our Products is important to us. To demonstrate our commitment to our users' privacy, we provide the following Privacy Policy to inform you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personally identifiable information collected from you during your use of Our Products.
 
This Privacy Policy is an integral part of Our Products and cannot, in any way, be separated from the Terms of Use posted on Our Products (the "Terms of Use") or from the usage or transaction process.
 
This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time for any reason. We will notify you of any material changes by posting the new policy on Our Products and highlighting the changes. We suggest that you consult Our Products regularly to check for any changes to this Privacy Policy. We will give you the opportunity to opt-out in the event of a material change to our existing online data collection and use practices.

Please remember that this Privacy Policy applies only to information collected by Our Products. We are not responsible for the privacy of any information you reveal to or post on any third-party site.
 
Given the nature of Passare.com, you may be posting highly personal information when you create a Passare site or visit or post to a site created by another person. Accordingly, Passare allows users of Our Products to control the level of access to and privacy of information, through password protections and other safeguards.

Anonymous Information.

We also collect "Anonymous Information", such as traffic statistics and general usage patterns regarding page views and activity, dates and times you use Our Products, the website that referred you to Our Products, and the method by which you accessed Our Products, files accessed through Our Products, responses sent to the browser, the length of data sent to the browser, and other data used in the communication between browser and Our Products.
 
Cookies and Action Tags.

Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your computer or mobile device with information about your visit to a particular site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. Session ID cookies are erased when you close your browser and do not last beyond one visit to Our Products. Session cookies help us keep track of information such as what service you are searching for. A persistent cookie is a small file stored on your hard drive for an extended period of time. These cookies are used to remember items like your login information if you have elected to have it remembered on your computer or mobile device, and are used to target you for Our Products.
 
Cookies may be used to:
  • personalize your experience on Our Products (e.g., to dynamically generate content on webpages specifically designed for you),
  • assist you in using our services (e.g., to save you time by not having to reenter your name upon each visit to Our Products), and
  • allow us to statistically monitor how you are using Our Products for purposes of improving our online offerings.
 
In addition to cookies that we place on your computer or mobile device, cookies may also be placed on your computer or mobile device by our third-party partners (our "Service Partners," defined below) or to collect Anonymous Information to provide partner services.
 
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. If you reject the cookie, you may not be able to fully use all the functionality of Our Products. Session ID cookies are required to store relevant information as a user moves from page to page. Persistent cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on Our Products.
 
"Action tags," also known as web beacons or GIF tags, are a web technology used to help track Anonymous Information, such as how many times a specific page has been viewed. Action tags are invisible to you, and any portion of Our Products, including advertisements, or e-mail sent on our behalf, may contain action tags. Unlike cookies, action tags are not placed on your computer or mobile device.
 
By using cookies and action tags together, we are able to gain valuable information to improve Our Products and our services.
 
Finally, please note that third parties may also use their own cookies or action tags when you link to their website or service, on or from Our Products. This Privacy Policy does not govern the use by such third-party websites or providers of any third-party advertising.
