I. Personally-Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Provident Standard LLC (also referred to herein as "Provident Standard") may collect two different types of information, Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) and Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”). PII that we collect is information that identifies you as an individual – and includes your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card information, billing address and shipping information. Non-PII is aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses, user behavior data from web interaction metrics tools and other information that does not reveal your specific identity. PII and Non-PII may be collected anytime you access or use a Provident Standard website. PII and Non-PII may also be collected by Provident Standard during in-person discussions, telephone conversations, and electronic or other written communications. Provident Standard also collects information via cookies; blocking cookies may render you unable to access certain Provident Standard products, services, or websites.
Provident Standard uses PII to respond to your inquiries, provide you with services you have requested, keep you informed of services Provident Standard thinks may be of interest to you, and otherwise personalize your experience with Provident Standard, and other reasons. Provident Standard does not sell or lease PII about you to others, and may in some cases be liable for so doing under the Privacy Shield Framework outlined below. Provident Standard will provide your e-mail address to affiliates or users who refer you to us, or through whom you create a Provident Standard account. Provident Standard shares your PII with Provident Standard affiliates and third parties contracting with Provident Standard to provide services to you, including financial institutions, API integrators you have chosen, and other third party software services that you have chosen to assist you with your sales funnels. Provident Standard employees who design our databases and software, and those employees who provide you with customer service, along with our customer service software partners, also have access to PII as part of their job in providing services to You. Provident Standard may also share PII when required by law, or when you have expressly requested Provident Standard to do so. Provident Standard reserves the right to disclose and use your PII if Provident Standard believes it is necessary to: (a) respond to legal process, e.g., a subpoena; (b) respond to a law enforcement agency’s request; (c) enforce the Terms; or (d) protect the rights, privacy, safety, property, or operations of Provident Standard or third parties;
Because Non-PII does not personally identify You, Provident Standard reserves the right to use and disclose to third parties Non-PII for any purpose.
Provident Standard reserves the right to change this privacy notice, which changes will become effective upon posting of the revised notice on https://www.providentstandard.com/privacy-policy, or upon emailing of the changes to You at the email address You provided to Provident Standard, or as required by law.
II. Links to or From Other Sites.
Except where expressly stated by Provident Standard, Provident Standard is not affiliated or associated with operators of any third party websites that link to or are linked from any Provident Standard-maintained website. Provident Standard disclaims any responsibility for the accuracy or content of information found on third party websites that link to or are linked from any Provident Standard website. Provident Standard disclaims any responsibility for the security of any information (including without limitation credit card and personally identifiable information (“PII”)) that you may provide to any third party. Provident Standard reserves the right, at any time and in its sole and absolute discretion, to block links to any Provident Standard-maintained website through technological or other means without prior notice.
III. Information; Registration; User Names and Passwords
As a Provident Standard website user, you will be required to create an account with Provident Standard. You warrant that the information you provide Provident Standard is truthful and accurate, and that you are not impersonating another person.

You agree to immediately notify Provident Standard of any unauthorized use of your password or User name or any other breach of security related to your account. You agree that Provident Standard is not liable, and you will hold Provident Standard harmless, for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with any of the foregoing obligations.
IV. EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks.
Under the Privacy Shield, you have the right to access, correct, or delete your personal data. You also have the right to limit Provident Standard’s use of your data – including the right to opt-in or out of receiving communications from Provident Standard. To exercise any of these rights, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Third party data transfer. Provident Standard may be liable for the transfer of EU and/or Swiss personal data to third parties acting as our agents unless we can prove we are not responsible for the event given rise to the damages.
The Choice Principle. Note that we may be required to release personal data of EU and/or Swiss individuals in response to lawful requests by public authorities including to meet national security and law enforcement requirements.
Provident Standard has further committed to refer unresolved privacy complaints under the Privacy Shield Principles to an independent dispute resolution mechanism, the BBB EU PRIVACY SHIELD, a non-profit alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States and operated by the Council of Better Business Bureaus. If you do not receive timely acknowledgement of your complaint, or if your complaint is not satisfactorily addressed, please visit www.bbb.org/EU-privacy-shield/for-eu-consumers for more information and to file a complaint. Under certain limited conditions, individuals in the European Union or Switzerland may have the right to invoke “last resort” binding arbitration before the Privacy Shield Panel to be created by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission. The Federal Trade Commission has jurisdiction with enforcement authority over Provident Standard’s compliance with the Privacy Shield.
