This Agreement is between you (“you” or “your” and CarryLinks, a Montana limited liability company (“CarryLinks”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) and governs your use of the website, browser extension/plugin, and any related tools or services (collectively, the "Services".

2. Collection of Personal Information

We collect Personal Information in connection with our Services. "Personal Information" is defined here as information used to identify an individual. Upon registration, we collect the User's first name, last name, email address, password (which gets hashed, i.e., using algorithms that create a scrambled and secure representation of itself), IP address, device information (computer/mobile, operating system, browser name and version, and preferred language). The User’s location is identified from the IP address. Such information helps CarryLinks improve and provide customized Services to its Users. When a User logs in, the User can see their login history. Such information helps the User to check for any suspicious activities in their accounts. The User can provide voluntarily information, such as their date of birth, preferred language, location, mobile phone number, time zone, and gender, from the settings pages. Such information is optional, but it would help CarryLinks improve and customize its Services. "Personal Information" also includes any financial account information you may provide CarryLinks or our third-party payment application provider for billing purposes (premium accounts). You have the option to not provide some Personal Information, but this may prevent you from receiving certain Services. We do not knowingly solicit or collect Personal information from users younger than 13 years old nor do we knowingly market to them our Services. If we learn that we have collected Personal Information from a child under age 13, we will delete that data from our systems upon being notified that we have collected such information. Please note that the Services may provide links to third party sites (such as links added by Users on their public pages and ads). We are not responsible for privacy policies, practices or the website content owned by others that you may link to via these links or ads or that may be linked to from the Services. Therefore, we encourage you to review the privacy policies and terms of use of all third party websites so that you understand how those websites collect, use and share Personal Information.

3. Use of Personal Information

CarryLinks may use Personal Information to assist us in setting up accounts; improving online operations; processing transactions; providing customer service, and/or other communications or services, such as advertisements and search results that are customized to your interests or preferences; sending account-related communications; and performing research and analysis aimed at improving our services and technologies. Please note that CarryLinks may store any information you enter through the Services or otherwise provide to us, including without limitation Personal Information such as information contained in the "Contact Us" forms, user registration, user login, or subscriptions to services. You can unsubscribe from CarryLinks newsletter emails from the settings page. Please note, however, that even by unsubscribing from newsletter emails, you may still receive emails regarding your CarryLinks account.

4. Disclosure of Personal and Non-Personal Information

CarryLinks will NOT sell, rent, share or trade your Personal Information to third parties for their own marketing purposes without your prior affirmative consent. Users can search for other users via first name, last name, or account name. Users can also search for public links shared by other Users on CarryLinks. CarryLinks might suggest public pages to Users. In addition to the User’s public links, the User’s first name, last name, and user name are available on the User’s public page. Voluntarily information (i.e., User’s bio, profile image, banner images and text, social media links) as well as the User’s interaction with other Users (i.e., comments, replies, follows, and likes) can be accessed by other Users as well as visitors. CarryLinks may disclose Personal and non-Personal information to our contractors or service providers to perform functions on our behalf (such as payment processing, provision of data storage, website hosting, marketing our services, and performing audits and web analytics). These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations. We may also disclose your Personal Information to third parties when we, in our good faith and sole discretion deem such disclosure reasonably necessary to (a) enforce or apply the terms and conditions of the Services, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (b) comply with legal or regulatory requirements or an enforceable government request, (c) protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our users, or other third parties, (d) prevent a crime or protect national security, or (e) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues. Finally, CarryLinks reserves the right to transfer information (including your Personal Information) to a third party in the event of a sale, merger, or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of our company, or in the unlikely event of a bankruptcy, liquidation or receivership of our business. You will be notified via e-mail or prominent notice on our website if any such change in ownership or control of your Personal Information.

5. Accessing and Updating Personal Information

After logging into your account, you will be able to update your Personal Information or to submit a request to delete your account. Please be aware that account deletion will also result in deletion of all your data (including your links, profile image, and banners), and CarryLinks recommends that you backup your links before deleting your account. Despite account deletion, CarryLinks may retain certain information for a limited time to enforce our agreements and satisfy our legal, audit, and/or dispute resolution requirements. We ordinarily retain your information while your account is active or as needed to provide the Services you request.

6. Cookies and Automatic Information Gathering Technologies

CarryLinks and our authorized service providers (e.g. Google Analytics, YouTube, Stripe) may collect Non-Personal Information (aggregate, non-individually identifiable, technical, or demographic information) to perform internal CarryLinks functions. We collect Non-Personal information through standard operation of our Internet servers, logs, other automatic data collection tools such as "cookies" and other similar technologies. A "cookie" is a small text file recorded temporarily or persistently on your hard drive allowing a website to recognize recurring visitors so as to facilitate their ongoing access to and use of the website. By using the Services, you expressly consent to our use of cookies. While you are using our website, we may also use cookies or other automatic information gathering technologies to display advertisements and offers of interest to you. We do NOT use these technologies to track your behavior across the web. CarryLinks collects non-Personal Information for internal purposes to help us diagnose problems, monitor traffic patterns, and otherwise continually improve our Services.

7. Information Security

CarryLinks utilizes reasonable information security measures to safeguard Users Personal Information. For example, we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology when data is transmitted over the Internet. We restrict administrative access as well as access to Personal Information to CarryLinks key personnel: employees, contractors, and service providers for whom that information is necessary in order to operate, develop, or improve our Services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations. No data transmission over the Internet and no data storage method can be guaranteed 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its security.

8. Changes to this Policy

We may update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes to our information practices, and we will notify Users via their account email. The date when this policy is updated will be shown on this page. We encourage Users to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
