h. We use information collected during submission of surveys and signups for newsletters to send both the information as requested and additional information about our company, Site or Services. Further, the information collected, including any demographics, is used to learn more about the types of people who visit our Sites and improve our Services.

Whenever PII or financial information is disclosed under this paragraph, we may also disclose your demographic information on a non-anonymous basis.
4. How does STRAX Protect Users Personal Information? We implement a variety of security measures to ensure the security of your PII on our systems.
a. Financial Information: When you enter sensitive financial information, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
b. Please be aware that emails or other messages you send to us (outside of any secure communication features provided within the Site) are not necessarily secure against interception and you should not include sensitive information in those messages. We generally will not ask for your credit or debit card number, password or other sensitive information in an email and you should assume that if you get such a request, it might be fraudulent.
c. General: We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Third parties may unlawfully attempt to intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.
7. Individuals under 13 years of age.
Pursuant to the provisions of the 1998 Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), our policy is to refuse individuals under the age of 13 to submit information to the Sites. We therefore do not knowingly collect personal information from individuals under the age of 13.
9. How do you change PII provided or OPT-OUT? STRAX gives Users an option for modifying or removing their information from our database. To update, modify or delete the information that we have on file for you, please contact us at the address provided below. However, please note, that while you may remove your PII from the Site at any time, you acknowledge that we may retain archived or cached copies of your PII.
10. How Long Do We Keep your Information? Unless you opt-out, STRAX shall maintain your contact and demographic information for marketing purposes indefinitely.
11. Do-Not-Track. STRAX does not currently respond to browser “do not track” signals or other similar mechanisms.
12. California Privacy Rights: California Civil Code Section 1798.83 allows users who are California residents to request certain information about the disclosure of their PII to third parties for direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact as provided below.
