Types of Information We Collect
Personal information means information that can be used to identify and contact you. You do not need to submit personal information to access certain areas of the Site, but if you do not want to disclose certain personal information to us, you will not be able to access certain aspects of the Company Features.
We collect personal information when you create an account through the Company Features or receive customer or technical support. We also collect personal information when you post comments with respect to using the Company Features.
To create an account for the Company Features, we require you to provide certain information to create your account, including your name and email address. You will also need to create a screen name and a password. Other information you may provide to us when creating a profile using the registration form provided to you through the Company Features include age, gender, telephone number and hobbies. You may also be required to provide billing address and credit card or other payment information. No information of this type will be collected unless you have registered for services that require it or voluntarily submit such information to us.
By utilizing your Facebook log-in credentials or by linking your account with any social network account, you expressly authorize the Company to (i) receive, and for Facebook, and/or such social network to share, certain of your information that is available on or through your Facebook and/or such social network account including, without limitation, your profile information, friends’ names, photos, privacy settings and certain other information that may be disclosed to you (and authorized by you) during the log-in process; and (ii) allow you to interact with your Facebook and/or other social network friends. You also authorize the Company to generate and publish on your Facebook and/or other social network news feed or timeline actions you take when using the Company Features. If linked, you agree to allow Facebook and/or other social networks to receive information concerning the actions you take in the Company Features.
How We Use Your Personal Information
The personal information you provide to us will allow us to provide the Company Features; alert you of new services, features, or enhancements to the Company Features; verify your identity and for fraud prevention; handle your customer service questions or issues; process payments; request feedback regarding the Company Features; engage in analysis, research and reports regarding the Site and the Company Features; comply with applicable law and protect the safety, right, property or security of the Company and other users of the Site and Company Features; and provide you with information regarding the Company and its products and promotions. We also use your email address as part of the Company Features in sending you messages about the Company Features and other general announcements.
We keep track of your interactions with us including, but not limited to, your activity within the Company Features. We may also use your personal information to contact you when necessary.
We may use your personal information with non-personal information that we have collected in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of the Company Features. We may make your personal information non-personally identifiable by either combining it with information about other users (aggregating your personal information with information about other users), or by removing characteristics (such as your name or email address) that make the information personally identifiable. This process is known as de-identifying your information. You grant us a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable and fully transferable right and license to use your non-personally identifiable information in connection with the creation and development of analytical and statistical analysis tools relating to the use of the customer data we collect in providing the Company Features (the “Analytical Data”). You expressly authorize us to make any commercial use of the Analytical Data including, without limitation, sharing the Analytical Data with third parties, provided that we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer from us any part of the Analytical Data that personally identifies you.
“Cookies” are small bits of electronic information that a website sends to a visitor’s browser and are stored on the visitor’s hard drive. Like many websites, we employ cookies in certain areas of the Site to allow us to provide information to make your online experience more convenient. For example, when you return to the Site after logging in, cookies provide information to the Site so that the Site will remember who you are on subsequent visits, speeding up your experience of the Company Features.
Do Not Track
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a web browser setting that requests a web application disable its tracking of an individual user. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to websites, analytics companies, ad networks, plug-in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity. Currently, there is no universally agreed-upon standard for what a company should do when it detects a DNT signal, and while we attempt to honor the request of “do not track” signals sent by your browser when you visit the Site, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to act on your DNT request. You can learn more about Do Not Track here.
This Site is not intended for use by children under the age of 16. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16 or allow them to create an account for the Company Features. We take children’s privacy seriously and encourage parents to play an active role in their children’s online experience at all times. If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 16 who you believe has provided her or his information to us, please contact us at email@example.com to request the deletion of that information.
Will we share your personal information with third parties?
Sharing of Information
We use your personal information to send communications to you about new services, features, or enhancements to the Company Features that may be of interest to you and to handle your customer service questions or issues. We will also share the personal information we collect from you under the following circumstances:
- Protection of rights. We will share personal information if we have a good faith belief that (i) access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, such as a court order or subpoena, or a request by law enforcement or governmental authorities, (ii) such action is appropriate to enforce our Terms of Service [link to Terms of Service page] for the Company Features, including any investigation of potential violations thereof, (iii) such action is necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues associated with the Company Features, or (iv) such action is appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of the Company, its employees, users of the Company Features or others.

If we become involved in a merger, acquisition or other transaction involving the sale of some or all the Company’s assets or equity, user information, including personal information collected from you through your use of the Company Features, could be included in the transferred assets. You agree that we may transfer your personal information in the event of such a sale or transaction.
- Your Posts. The photos and comments uploaded and posted by you will be shared with other users of the Company Features.
- Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media networks. We will share certain information with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or other social media networks linked to your account for the purpose of creating news feeds and other social media activities related to your use of the Company Features, as described in more detail above in the section: “Types of Information We Collect.”
Additional Information You Should Know About Third Parties
What choices do you have about the collection and use of your personal information?

You may update or delete your personal information or modify your account preferences for the Company Features by accessing the account interface provided through the Company Features or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Please note that you cannot unsubscribe from certain correspondence from us, including messages relating to your account transactions.
What security measures do we take to safeguard your personal information?
The personal information that you provide to us is stored on servers located in the United States which are located in secured facilities and protected by protocols and procedures designed to ensure the security of such information. In addition, we restrict access to personal information to Company employees and agents who need to know this information in order to develop, operate and maintain the Company Features. However, no server, computer or communications network or system, or data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect user information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or through the use of any of the Company Features and you acknowledge and agree that you provide such information and engage in such transmissions at your own risk. Once we receive a transmission from you, we will endeavor to maintain its security on our systems.

However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
As a California resident, you also have the right, at any time, to tell us not to sell your Personal Information – this is called the “right to opt-out” of the sale of Personal Information. At the current time, we do not “sell” your information as that term is defined in the CCPA.
You may make a CCPA request to us at the contact information below. We may require you to confirm your identity and your residency in order to obtain the information, and you are only entitled to make this request twice a year. Please include “California Privacy Rights” in the subject line.

International Transfers of Information
Because Company works with global companies and technologies, we may transfer, store, or process your Personal Information outside of the country in which it was originally provided. This may include transfers to third parties, such as service providers or affiliated entities, who are located outside of the United States or the European Union, where data protection laws may not offer the same level of protection as those within the U.S. or EEA. When we transfer personal data outside of these areas, we take steps to make sure that appropriate safeguards are in plan to protect your Personal Information.

We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to become involved in any way with these disputes.

If you are a California resident, you waive your rights under California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.” And, if you are not a California resident, you waive your rights under any applicable statutes of a similar effect, to the fullest extent permissible under applicable law.
Notice. Proxima may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to the Terms, by email, regular mail, postings on the Services, or other reasonable means. Notice will be deemed given twenty-four hours after email is sent, unless Proxima is notified that the email address is invalid. Alternatively, we may give you legal notice by mail to a postal address, if provided by you through the Services. In such case, notice will be deemed given three days after the date of mailing.

Waiver. The failure of Proxima to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver of any provision of the Terms will be effective only if in writing and signed by Proxima.
Governing Law. The Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. BY AGREEING TO BINDING ARBITRATION, YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO LITIGATE DISPUTES THROUGH A COURT AND TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE.
- a) In order to expedite and control the cost of disputes, Proxima and you agree that any legal or equitable claim, dispute, action or proceeding arising from or related to your use of the Services or these Terms (“Dispute“) will be resolved as follows to the fullest extent permitted by law:
- b) Notice of Dispute.In the event of a Dispute, you or Dispute must give the other a written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and a proposed solution (a “Notice of Dispute“). You must send any Notice of Dispute by first class U.S. Mail to Proxima, LLC, 812 Via Barquero, San Marcos, California 92069 and also via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, Attention: Legal Department. Proxima will send any Notice of Dispute to you by first class U.S. Mail to your address if Proxima has it, or otherwise to your e-mail address. You and Proxima will attempt in good faith to resolve any Dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the Notice of Dispute is sent. After sixty (60) days, you or Proxima may commence arbitration.
- c) Binding Arbitration.Any Dispute which has not been resolved by negotiation as provided herein within sixty (60) days or such time period as you and Proxima may otherwise agree, shall be finally resolved by binding arbitration as described in this Section 15.4. You are giving up the right to litigate all Disputes in court before a judge or jury. Instead, all Disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act. The place of arbitration shall be San Diego County, California. Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator’s award.
- d) Arbitration Procedures.Any arbitration will be conducted by JAMS under the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (“JAMS Rules“) in effect at the time the Dispute is filed. You may request a telephonic or in-person hearing by following the JAMS Rules. In a dispute involving $10,000 or less, any hearing will be telephonic unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. To the extent the forum provided by JAMS is unavailable, Proxima and you agree to select a mutually agreeable alternative dispute resolution service and that such alternative dispute resolution service shall apply the JAMS Rules. The arbitrator may award the same damages to you individually as a court could. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief to you only individually, and only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim.
- e) Arbitration Fees.Whoever files the arbitration will pay the initial filing fee. If Proxima files, then Proxima will pay; if you file, then you will pay unless you get a fee waiver under the applicable arbitration rules. Each party will bear the expense of that party’s attorneys, experts, and witnesses, and other expenses, regardless of which party prevails, but a party may recover any or all expenses from another party if the arbitrator, applying applicable law, so determines.
- f) Filing Period.To the extent permitted by law, any Dispute under these Terms must be filed within one (1) year in an arbitration proceeding. The one-year period begins when the events giving rise to the Dispute first occur. If a Dispute is not filed within one year, it is permanently barred.
- g) In the event that any Dispute cannot be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with this Section 15.4, you agree that such Dispute will be filed only in the state or federal courts in and for San Diego County, California, and each of you and Proxima hereby consent and submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating any such action. Notwithstanding this, Proxima shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive or other equitable relief to protect or enforce its intellectual property rights in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Severability. If any provision of the Terms or any Guidelines is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be limited or eliminated from the Terms to the minimum extent necessary and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
Assignment. The Terms and related Guidelines, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you without Proxima’s prior written consent, but may be assigned by Proxima without consent or any restriction. Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of the Terms shall be null and void.
Survival. Upon termination of the Terms, any provision which, by its nature or express terms should survive, will survive such termination or expiration.
Headings. The heading references herein are for convenience purposes only, do not constitute a part of the Terms, and will not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.
