To the full extent permitted by law, any circuit court in Lake County, Illinois shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any matter relating to or arising from this Agreement and the parties’ rights and obligations under this Agreement.
- Non-Disparagement.

This Policy describes how Owner collects, uses, and discloses information in the United States. The United States may not offer a level of privacy protection as great as that offered in other countries. In jurisdictions outside of the United States where Owner is subject to different or more restrictive local laws, Owner may adjust its practices in those jurisdictions to comply with local laws. Otherwise, Owner makes no representation that the practices described in this Policy are compliant with laws outside of the United States that apply to the collection, security, use, and disclosure of information. Information that is collected or stored in jurisdictions outside of the United States may, subject to applicable law, be disclosed or transferred to the United States or other locations. When information is transferred to the United States, it will be handled in accordance with the laws of the United States.
By using the Website, You agree to the privacy practices described in this Policy. This Policy applies solely to information collected by the Website.
- INFORMATION COLLECTED. The Website collects two kinds of information (collectively, “Information”) about You: (a) personally identifiable information; and (b) non-personally identifiable information. Owner is the sole owner of the Information collected on the Website. Owner only has access to collect Information that You voluntarily provide Owner.
- Personally Identifiable Information. Personally identifiable information is information that identifies You or another person. When You engage in certain activities on the Website, Owner may ask You to provide certain personal information about Yourself, including: (i) Your name, address, phone number, email address, and other basic contact information; (ii) Your preferences, content, access device information, and payment information, including credit card numbers and bank account numbers; (iii) reviews, photographs, videos, and other content; and (iv) communications and other messages, including correspondence between Owner and You. You may decline to provide personally identifiable information through the Website. However, depending on the activity, some of the information Owner asks You to provide is mandatory. If You decline to provide the mandatory information for a particular activity that requires it, Owner may not be able to provide that service to You.
- Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Non-personally identifiable information is information that does not identify You or another person. Non-personally identifiable information includes: (i) session and usage data; (ii) log data; and (iii) aggregate information.
- Session and Usage Data. Session and usage data is information about Your use of the Website, without limitation, connection and service-related data submitted to Owner through the use of the Website. Session and usage data includes information relating to the connection request, server communication, and data sharing, including: network measurements; quality of service; time and date of the use of the Website; and upon Your consent, Your location. Owner may also aggregate session and usage data as described in the aggregate information section below. Session and usage data does not include any personally identifiable information nor does it include content You may transmit or share through the use of the Website (such as name, address, and calendar appointments).
- Log Data. When You interact with Owner or use the Website, Owner’s systems may automatically collect Your unique user device number, the IP address, type of browser or operating system You use, and the dates and times of Your use.
- Aggregate Information. Aggregate information is data Owner collects about a group or category of services or users from which individual user identities have been removed. In other words, information on how You use the Website, may be collected and combined with information about how others use the Website, but no personally identifiable information will be included in the resulting aggregate information. Aggregate information helps Owner understand trends in Owner’s users’ needs so that Owner can better consider new features or otherwise tailor the Website.
- HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION. Owner will NOT sell Your Information. Owner may use Your Information as follows:
- Personally Identifiable Information. Owner may use Your personally identifiable information to: (i) provide products and services; (ii) resolve disputes, calculate and collect fees, and troubleshoot problems; (iii) verify Your identity and the information You provide; (iv) encourage a safe online experience and enforce Owner’s policies; (v) customize Your experience, analyze usage of the Website, improve and measure interest in Owner’s products and services, and inform You about the Website, services, products, and updates; (vi) provide You with information that may affect Your use of the Website, the products and services; (vii) advertise Owner’s services to You or suggest additional features; (viii) provide customer service, including receipts; and (ix) perform certain other business activities. During the course of Owner’s business, Owner may use Your personally identifiable information to deliver information to You that is targeted to Your interests. Upon receipt of the first communication of this type, You will have the opportunity to opt-out of future communications by clicking on unsubscribe link or by following unsubscribe instructions described within the communication or otherwise notifying Owner at firstname.lastname@example.org. Owner may, however, send You messages through email, text message or other means of communications as part of Owner’s services regarding administrative matters, updates, disputes, and customer service issues regarding the products or services, and You will not be able to opt-out of receiving such messages. You can do the following at any time by contacting Owner via email: (a) verify what personally identifiable information Owner has about You, if any; (b) change, correct or delete any personally identifiable information Owner has about You; and (c) express any concern You have about Owner’s use of Your personally identifiable information. From time to time, Owner may implement solutions designed to more efficiently capture Your communications preferences. In any such event, Owner will strive to reflect any previously stated communicated preferences within such solutions. Owner may also use Your personally identifiable information as Owner believes necessary or appropriate, in any manner permitted under applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence to: comply with legal process; respond to requests from public and government authorities, including public and government authorities outside Your country of residence; enforce our terms and conditions; protect Owner’s operations; protect Owner’s rights, privacy, safety or property, and/or that of Owner’s affiliates, You or others; and allow Owner to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that Owner may sustain.
