The Information We Collect and Store
We may collect and store the following information when running the e-Share Software and Service:
Information You Provide to e-Share
When you register an account, we collect some personal information, such as your name, and email address. You may also ask us to import your contacts by giving us access to your third party services (for example, your email account). When you invite others to join e-Share by using our referral page, we send them a one-time email for that referral. You may also provide us with your contacts’ email addresses when sharing folders or files with them. We may also receive Personal Information (for example, your email address) through other users, for example if they have tried to share something with you or tried to refer e-Share to you.
Automatically Collected Information
We automatically receive certain types of information when you interact with our Web pages, services and communications. For example, it is standard for your Web browser to automatically send information to every Web site you visit, including ours. That information includes your computer’s IP address, access times, your browser type and language, and referring web site addresses. We may also collect information about the type of operating system you use, your account activity, and files and pages accessed or used by you.
When you use the Software and Service, we automatically record information from your Device, its software, and your activity using the Software and Service. This may include the Device’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, the web page visited before you came to our website, information you search for on our website, locale preferences, identification numbers associated with your Devices, your mobile carrier, date and time stamps associated with transactions, system configuration information, metadata concerning your files, and other interactions with the Software and Service.

In general, we use your personal information to process your requests or transactions, to provide you with information or services you request, to inform you about other information, events, promotions, products or services we think will be of interest to you, to facilitate your use of, and our administration and operation of, the web site and services and to otherwise serve you and our users. For example, we may use your personal information:
* to request feedback and to enable us to develop, customize and improve the Web site and our publications, products and services;

Service Providers, Business Partners and Others
Our Software and Service offers publicly accessible community services such as forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. Your posts may remain even after you cancel your account. For questions about your Personal Information on our Software and Service, please contact email@example.com. Our Site includes links to other web sites whose privacy practices may differ from those of e-Share. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy statements. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy statement of any web site you visit.
Changing or Deleting Your Information
If you are a registered user, you may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information provided in your registration or account profile by changing your “account settings.” If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may update or delete it by making the change on your account settings. In some cases we may retain copies of your information if required by law. For questions about your Personal Information on our Software and Service, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to your inquiry within 30 days.
We follow generally accepted standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our website, you can contact us at email@example.com.

Accountability For Onward Transfer
e-Share is potentially liable when transferring your Account Data, referred to in this section as “Privacy Shield Data”, to a third party. e-Share will not share your Privacy Shield Data with third parties unless you have consented to the disclosure or in those situations where we are the data processor and have been instructed to do so by the data controller. e-Share may share your data with service providers solely for the purposes of rendering service to e-Share to facilitate the rendering of service to you. e-Share will ensure that third parties and service providers have adequate Privacy Shield Data protection measures in place through service agreements that adhere to the EU-US Privacy Shield principles or are based on the EU Standard Contractual Clauses.
Enforcement And Liability
Under certain limited conditions, you may have the possibility of invoking binding arbitration before the Privacy Shield Panel to be created by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission.
Your personal Information may be disclosed as we believe to be necessary or appropriate in order to: (a) comply with a law, regulation or compulsory legal request; (b) respond to requests from public and government authorities; (c) protect our rights and property; (d) allow us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.
