Prior to listing, users acknowledge that they have the company’s authorization to list information about the listed company. Once this has been done, the listing is posted. We may obtain address information about you from third party sources, such as LexisNexis, for fraud prevention and verification purposes.
How We Use Your Personal Information
Personal Information will not be given, shared, or sold to third parties, except when it’s necessary as described below.
We may use your Personal Information to operate, maintain and provide you service and conduct our business. For example (and not limited) to:
Verify the authentication of a company’s listing

Respond to your inquiries, customer service requests;
Verify activity as we deem necessary;
Send you updates of new businesses or startups or other promotional communications; and
Conduct research and analyze data to improve our service or customize our communications with you.
When we share data with third-party services, we require that they protect your personal information to the same standards we do. We also will share personal information within CrowdlistIQ if we add products or services.
We also do reserve the right to disclose personal information when we believe that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with the law or law enforcement, to prevent fraud or abuse, or to protect CrowdlistIQ’s legal rights.
How We Store and Protect Your Personal Information
We may store Personal Information in locations outside our direct control (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).
We use Security Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to encrypt sensitive personal information (such as your email or password) before it travels over the internet. Credit card numbers are never stored on our database or servers.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at email@example.com.
Compromise of Personal Information
We will promptly notify those persons whose Personal Information is compromised. Notwithstanding, CrowdlistIQ does not accept liability for any unintentional disclosure or a disclosure that occurs due to a security breach of our systems or facilities.
