This Privacy Policy is intended to inform you about the types of information gathered by Under the Fig Tree Corporation (“we”, “us”) when you use Under the Fig Tree, how we use and safeguard that information, and the degree to which you may control the collection and use of that information.

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. If you are a registered Under the Fig Tree user, we will attempt to inform you of any material changes by email. Otherwise, you may view the most recent Privacy Policy on the Under the Fig Tree website. Your continued use of Under the Fig Tree constitutes your agreement with the existing and updated policies.

Information Collection and Use
We will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you choose to provide that information to us. You may elect not to provide any or all such information, but if so you may not be able to use all features of Under the Fig Tree.

As part of the registration process, we will ask you to provide information such as your name and email address in order to create your Under the Fig Tree account. If you choose to offer a program for sale or rental on Under the Fig Tree, we will ask you to provide your bank account account information so we may compensate you for those sales and rentals. If you choose to buy or rent (“Purchase”) a program, we will ask you to provide information regarding your payment service of choice (e.g. credit card, PayPal, Google Checkout) so we may facilitate your Purchase.

Under the Fig Tree does not collect or store any personal financial information in connection with purchases. While we do offer you the option to store your credit or debit card payment information to make future purchases easier, we do not store the actual card number or related personal financial information. Rather, that information is provided to a third party for secure storage, and we use a secure “token” associated with that information to facilitate your purchase. These tokens do not include personal financial information. All personal financial information required to complete your purchase will be securely collected and provided to a third party vendor who will process payments and complete transactions.

We may automatically collect and store certain information about your interaction with the Under the Fig Tree website, including IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamps, and related data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, solely to improve the quality of our products and services. We also use cookies to make it easier for you to use Under the Fig Tree. You are free to decline cookies, but by doing so you may not be able to take full advantage of all of our services.

Email Notices
When you register with Under the Fig Tree, we will send you a welcome email that includes information about Under the Fig Tree and your account. If you make a Purchase, we will send you an email with information about your Purchase. You may also request to receive periodic emails from us notifying you about new or upcoming Under the Fig Tree products or services. If you later decide you no longer wish to receive these emails, you may opt-out as instructed in each email. Be advised, however, that you may not opt-out of receiving emails from us related to your purchases, technical support requests, or updates to the Under the Fig Tree Terms of Service or Privacy Policy.

If you forget your account login information, you may request that we send it to the email address associated with your account. Please take steps to keep your account information secure to prevent unauthorized access.

We understand how highly our users value the privacy and security of their personally identifiable information. We will disclose information collected from and about you only as follows: (1) to our related companies, service providers and suppliers, to enable them to fulfill a product or service request or to perform a business, professional or technical support function for us; (2) as necessary if we believe that there has been a violation of our Terms of Service or of our rights or the rights of any third party; and (3) to respond to judicial process and provide information to law enforcement agencies or in connection with an investigation on matters related to public safety, as permitted by law, or otherwise as required by law.

Information Security
We employ encryption and other security measures to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We take commercially reasonable steps to protect this information by using secure-socket-layer (“SSL”) to protect the transmission of such information. However, please be advised that while we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent unauthorized access from occurring. Please take steps to maintain the security of your account information.
