Aggregate information cannot be used to identify any individual or access any individual’s private information For Eyes collects and uses from this website.
3. Who Is Collecting The Information?
All Information collected on the For Eyes Website and as part of our Services is collected and maintained primarily by For Eyes. For Eyes’ affiliates or sister companies, or third party contractors involved in the processing of a User’s transaction (such as For Eyes’ payment processing and fulfillment partners), and law enforcement and government agencies may receive and maintain such Information as well.
4. Is The Information Shared With Anyone?
For Eyes does not disclose any Private Information about its customers to anyone except as necessary to perform the Service you request and/or as permitted by law. We do not sell or exchange customer lists or customer information for marketing purposes. We collect, use and verify the information we believe necessary to complete authorized transactions. Customer information is utilized to evaluate, process, administer and enforce the transactions Users request and authorize.
We restrict access to customer’s Private Information to those employees and third party contractors who need to know the information in the course of providing the transactions Users request and authorize. For Eyes informs third party contractors that they and their business associates are responsible for reasonable and prudent privacy and security safeguards to secure your Private Information. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in an effort to secure your Private Information. We afford prospective and former customers the same protections as our existing customers in this regard.

Users can change, edit, delete, or update Private Information at any time and from time to time by going to the For Eyes Website, logging in, and clicking on the “My Account” area of the For Eyes Website. If a User desires to close its For Eyes account, the User must follow the account deletion procedure in the Customer Service area of this Website.
6. Can Users Submit “Do Not Track” Requests?
The For Eyes Website does not recognize or respond to “Do Not Track” requests.
7. Links To / From Other Sites.
This Policy applies only to information collected while a User is on the For Eyes Website. The For Eyes Website may contain links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by For Eyes.

Be careful of disclosing any of your Private Information when leaving the For Eyes Website. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Website and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects Private Information.
8. How Is User Information Protected?/ Security Measures.
For Eyes takes reasonable precautions to protect the information of its Users. When the Services require sensitive User information (including, without limitation, Private Information) the information is encrypted during transmission. For Eyes’ database of User information resides on For Eyes’ servers behind various firewalls to protect against loss, misuse, theft, and unauthorized modification, deletion, or alteration of the information contained in such database. In addition, For Eyes has taken preventive measures designed to restrict access to sensitive data and Private Information, as well as to detect, police, and prohibit certain communications and operations by unauthorized users. Only employees and other third party contractors necessary to perform the Services you request, and only as permitted by law, are granted access to such information. For Eyes makes no claim or warranty as to the security or impenetrability of For Eyes’ system under unusual circumstances or its resilience to future sophisticated attacks.
9. When Might Information Be Disclosed As Permitted or Required by Law?
For Eyes may legally disclose certain Private Information about Users to unrelated parties in special cases when For Eyes has reason to believe that such disclosure is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against a person or persons who may be causing injury to, or interference with, the rights or property of For Eyes, For Eyes Users, or any third party. In addition, For Eyes may legally disclose information about Users to law enforcement agencies, judicial or government authorities, or to other individuals or entities in response to applicable laws, judicial orders, and/or government or law enforcement requests, subpoenas, court orders, or other legal processes.
