Non-Personally Identifiable Data:
When you interact with Paperless Post through the Site, we receive and store certain information that cannot presently be used to identify you (“non-personally identifiable information”). Such non-personally identifiable information is collected passively using various technologies such as web beacons and may be used to track usage of the Site, determine whether messages have been opened or acted upon or customize Paperless Post Services. Unless you have registered for the Site, the non-personally identifiable information we gather through the use of tracking technologies will not be matched with any Personal Data. Paperless Post may store such non-personally identifiable information itself or such non-personally identifiable information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Paperless Post affiliates, agents or service providers. The Site may use and share such non-personally identifiable information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process of collecting non-personally identifiable information.
Aggregated Personal Data:
In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Paperless Post Services, Paperless Post often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and this type of aggregated information does not identify you personally (the “Aggregate Data”), and Paperless Post may share this Aggregate Data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. Paperless Post may also disclose Aggregate Data in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
As described above, Paperless Post may collect and store personal information about other people that you provide to us through your use of the Paperless Post Services. Paperless Post may use such information to help us improve the content and functionality of the Site, to better understand our users and to improve the Paperless Post Services. Among other things, we may use guests’ contact information to offer guests the opportunity to contact each other through the Site.
Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
Paperless Post is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
Other Users/Event Guests:
Paperless Post offers public guests lists. For any event with a public guest list, Paperless Post may display the names of guests to other guests of the same event. Paperless Post may also combine public guest list information among all events to identify the number of times a user and/or event guest has indicated that he/she would be attending the same event as another guest (“Co-Attendees”). Users who register with Paperless Post (“Member(s)”) may have access to certain information on Co-Attendees, such as the number of times a Co-Attendee has attended the same event as the Member. If you do not consent to us disclosing such information to your Co-Attendees, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Paperless Post may also offer users and/or event guests the opportunity to contact each other through the Site. We may use guests’ contact information to notify guests that a Co-Attendee has requested that Paperless Post facilitate electronic contact with that guest through the Site. In facilitating this electronic contact through the Site, Paperless Post will not intentionally disclose guest contact information.
As we develop our business, we might sell, buy or merge businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties:
Paperless Post, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
Paperless Post may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation or a government request, (ii) verify compliance with or enforce our Terms of Service or protect and defend the rights or property of Paperless Post, users of the Site or others (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
You can use the Site without providing any Personal Data when you receive Stationery or other correspondence or when you view an event invitation or card publicly distributed on the web. If you choose not to provide any Personal Data, you will not be able to use certain Paperless Post Services, such as sending Stationery or other correspondence or as a guest user registering a response to a host of a public event invitation.
