Your privacy is extremely important to us, so we have taken several steps to protect your privacy.
Personal Data is information that can be used to identify you as an individual.
By registering on the NIXTY service, you agree:
Personal Data may be processed by NIXTY or User(s) in the country where it was collected as well as other countries (including the United States) where laws regarding processing of Personal Data may be less stringent.
We collect information about you in a variety of ways. When you register for NIXTY, we collect personal information that is necessary for you to use the Service. This information is known as Personal Data and includes your username, password, email address and photo. As you complete your ePortfolio and profile, you have an opportunity to disclose more personal information by completing the optional fields. You can choose to reveal a little or a lot about yourself. You can also edit or delete your personal information at any time by clicking on the “edit” button on your profile page.
NIXTY may also record your IP address when submitting information in order to combat online crime or fraud. In addition, if you choose to purchase a premium account(s) on NIXTY, you provide necessary information to process your credit card payment. When you use the NIXTY Address Book service, you also provide contact information of other people.
You can also decide not to share any Personal Data with NIXTY by not registering with NIXTY. You can also cancel your NIXTY account.
We use your information to provide you the best service that we can. Your basic information, which includes your username, photo, and/or other profile/eportfolio information, is displayed to all members. You then determine the level of privacy you want for additional personal profile/eportfolio information that you post about yourself. When you invite friends to join the service, your email and full name will be displayed in the invitation email. NIXTY will also send you updates via email, which can include, but are not limited to, information about your account, information about your courses, and CEUs. If you do not want to receive these updates, then simply hit the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the email.
When you invite your students, teachers, friends, family, and colleagues to NIXTY, we will ask that you provide their email addresses, so that we can automatically send them an invitation to join.
NIXTY utilizes third party advertisers, and some posts will include links to third party sites, but NIXTY is not responsible for the privacy policies of these third party advertisers or third party links. You are encouraged to familiarize yourself with the privacy standards of each Website that you frequent.
Other than the above mentioned self-disclosure in your personal profile information, know that anything you choose to disclose in any other place on NIXTY can be reviewed and used by other members of NIXTY. Use wise judgment when posting information. We cannot control your level of disclosure and will not be liable in any way for another’s use or misuse of the information you disclose. Also, NIXTY monitors the Content that you have uploaded to your ePortfolio, courses, and CEUs; in addition, NIXTY also tracks top Users.
NIXTY may need to provide your Personal Data to third parties to deliver specific services to you (e.g., credit card payment information, support services). These third parties are required not to disclose your Personal Data and not to use your Personal Data other than to provide the services requested by NIXTY.
NIXTY may disclose Personal Data if required by a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order, where required by law, or, at our sole discretion, where we deem necessary to protect the safety of any individual or the general public or to prevent violation of our Terms of Service or the rights of NIXTY or any third party.
NIXTY uses best practices and industry standard security measures to protect information under our control. NIXTY works hard to provide a high level of security; however, we cannot guarantee complete security and we cannot assume liability to third parties that may be in your address book.
You can change, update, and/or remove your information at any point. Your Personal Data may be retained in our backup files and archives.
Users must not engage in any activity that involves sending email in violation of applicable law. NIXTY has a No Spam Policy and Terms of Service and any violation of these policies or Terms will result in immediate termination and may result in legal action.
NIXTY complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and clearly specifies that users must be at least 13 years-old. If individuals are between 13 and 17, then they must have parental consent to use the site. If NIXTY learns of a user who is younger than 13, or between 13 and 17 and without parental consent, then NIXTY, at their sole discretion, can terminate that account.
