3. THE WAY WE USE INFORMATION

We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order, only to complete that order and to manage your account and keep your account current and we use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order. For example, in order to ship the product and confirm delivery (shipping company) and to bill you for goods and services (transaction processor). We may disclose your personally identifiable information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:

a. Conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on Smooth Photo Scanning Service;

b. Protect and defend the rights or property of Smooth Photo Scanning Service, or;

c. In the event of urgent circumstances, act to protect the personal safety of users of Smooth Photo Scanning Service, its websites or the public.

In the event, Smooth Photo Scanning Service goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another entity, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, or should ever file for bankruptcy, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred.

We use the information you provide about someone else (a recipient) when placing an order only to ship the product and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary and reasonable to complete that order.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

You can register with our website if you would like to use our services and receive updates on our new products and services. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form. We may use the email address you provide to us to confirm order specification, shipment delivery and to answer, or ask questions associated with completing orders. We may use your contact information to contact you if we need to address questions in processing an order. We may use your contact information to occasionally send you information on our services and newsletters and, out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications.

We may send you strictly service related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email alerting you of the temporary suspension. Generally, you may not opt out of these communications which are not promotional in nature.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that a particular number of individuals visited a certain section on our website but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those specific individuals.

Finally, we never use or share personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

4. OUR COMMITMENT TO DATA SECURITY

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Unfortunately, no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is completely secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect the personal information that you transmit to us, we cannot guarantee its absolute security and you do so at your own risk.

Smooth Photo Scanning Service periodically reviews and updates our security measures to continually provide improved protection for the registered customer base.
