DISCLOSURE OF USER INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES
In addition to the use of information described above, DIY Cartel reserves the right to disclose information provided by Users (including Personal Information) as follows:
Disclosure By Law. You acknowledge and agree that we may disclose information you provide if required to do so by law, at the request of a third party, or if we, in our sole discretion, believe that disclosure is reasonable to: (1) comply with the law, requests, or orders from law enforcement, or any legal process (whether or not such disclosure is required by applicable law); (2) protect or defend DIY Cartel’s or a third party’s rights or property; or (3) protect someone’s health or safety, such as when harm or violence against any person (including you) is threatened.
Disclosure to Third Party Service Providers. We may share your information with third party service providers to perform functions on our behalf. For example, outsourced customer care agents or technology assistants may need access to your information to perform services for you. Your information will be treated as private and confidential by such service providers and not used for any other purpose than we authorize.
Please note that data that is transported over an open network, such as the Internet or e-mail, may be accessible to anybody. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted via such open networks. When disclosing any personal information via an open network, you should remain mindful of the fact that it is potentially accessible to others, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without your consent. In particular, while individual data packets are often encrypted, the names of the sender and recipient are not. A third party may therefore be able to trace an existing bank account or relationship or one that is subsequently created. Even if both the sender and recipient are located in the same country data may also be transmitted via such networks to other countries regularly and without controls, including to countries that do not afford the same level of data protection as your country of domicile.
Password-protected areas of the Website can be accessed only with a valid user name and password. Each password owner is responsible for keeping the password confidential and safe, as DIY Cartel has no control or responsibility for this type of User information. If the password may have been stolen or might otherwise be misused, it is the responsibility of the password owner to notify DIY Cartel immediately for further action.
Your data may be lost during transmission or may be accessed by unauthorized parties. We do not accept any liability for direct or indirect losses as regards the security of your Personal Information or data during its transfer via Internet. Please use other means of communication if you think this is necessary or prudent for security reasons.
The Website and the Service are exclusively hosted in the United States. If you are a User accessing the Website or the Service from the European Union, Australia, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure, that differ from United States laws, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States, which does not have the same data protection laws in such other regions. User information (including Personal Information or “personal data” as defined by foreign laws) collected through the Website or the Service may be stored and processed in the United States, and by using the Website or the Service, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your home country.
