The Right to Access and Control Your Information
Transferring Information Internationally
This policy applies to all users, whether a trial user, subscriber, sub-user, customer, website visitor, participant, or use just a portion of our services. You decide on how we use your personal data. These choices include how we can gain access to certain information and the limits in using it.
Remediate.co does not have control over information shared with third parties that have been copied or exported from our service or that you have personally shared with such ones outside of our terms of services. In such cases, the sole responsibly is left upon you to contact these third parties directly to have your information deleted, restricted, or retracted by other means.
INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT FROM USERS OF OUR BLOG, WEBSITE, AND APP
We only collect information that is necessary to provide and improve Remediate.co’s services. We take the privacy of everyone seriously. When users sign up or register on this site, they may be asked to provide certain personal information such as their name, credit card information, email address, or other details to facilitate a smooth transaction or experience.
Registration and Profile Information
We collect information about you that is necessary for the smooth operation of a service or to fulfill a transaction, which includes your name, email address, password, IP address, and other information that is necessary for a complete profile. You reserve the right to modify your profile—alter or remove part or all your basic personal information.
You decide on the information that you give to us, but as a participant, providing accurate profile information helps you get more out of our services.
Uploading, Posting and Providing Content
We collect your personal information to provide you with Remediate.co’s services when you fill out a form, upload, post, send, receive, share information, or use our app. This information is what you choose to include and you never have to share personal data, though it may limit your user experience or how successfully we deliver our services.
Our website includes the convenient feature of customer support. Contacting Remediate.co through email, live chat, or any other means, will prompt you to provide your contact information, details about your inquiry, or other information deemed necessary to allow us to resolve your problem.
For users of our services, we process all payment information (credit card and/or PayPal email address) through a secure payment system—Braintree/Paypal API. Payment details (credit card, billing, or contact information) are not stored on our servers. You may choose not to provide this information, but it will hinder you from fulfilling your desired goal of making a purchase.
Information Received From Other Sources
We may receive your personal information by other means, including users from third-party services, users of our services, affiliates, and partners. Your information may also be passed on by other users when they provide information about you through our services. For example—as a subscriber of our application— you may interact with other associates or employees by inviting them as sub-account holders where a username and email is required.
If you share your personal information with these users, it’s a possibility that they will share it with us within the content that they post on our website. If you do not wish to divulge personal information to other users, do not share your information publicly.

HOW COLLECTED INFORMATION IS USED
Remediate.co uses information to support, provide, personalize, and develop its services. The way in which this information is used depends on the type of service you choose, how you use it, and your preferences. Below is a detailed outline as to how your information is collected and legitimately utilized on our platform.
To Provide our Services
The information collected from you is used to facilitate our services—processing your transactions, authorizing access to our services, as well as operating and maintaining our services. For example, your credit card and billing information are used to carry out a paid transaction.
Contact information is used to send transactional messages via email, push notifications or other means employed by our services. An email may be sent to communicate information regarding a transaction, due date reminders, or other notifications. For direct customers, communication messages are sent to confirm purchases, help with a reported issue, or provide general support.
Unique messages are sent to each user based on how our services are utilized. For example, we may communicate to a user to inform on how a certain service is used or even make a suggestion on how to improve on user-experience. Most transactional messages are mandatory, and you cannot opt out of them.
For Marketing or Promotional Services
Your information may be used to send promotional email messages that may interest you. These messages serve the purpose of improving our services or allowing you the opportunity to learn more about what we offer. Examples include information about new products and features, newsletters, notifications, and surfing this site. An unsubscribe link is placed at the bottom of each promotional email.

As we work to improve our services, we often conduct research to make them more useful to customers and users of our website. Direct customer feedback and data is used to improve our services through testing, data analytics, and research.
For Customer Support
We collect and use your information to help fix problems such as bugs, data crashes, and logs—and to communicate with you.

To Protect Our Legal Rights and Interests or When Required By Law
To work along with legal claims, regulations, investigations, or to protect your (and our) legal rights or make audits, we will require the use of your information. Your information may also be disclosed in the process of acquisition of our assets or business, or in the event of a merger.
With Your Permission
The most likely use of your information is in the case where it is given to us by your consent. For example, we may ask for your information to participate in a survey to see how we can better improve our services to customers.
For the Processing of Legitimate Legality Regarding EEA Users

In cases where we rely on your consent for the processing of your personal information, it is within your rights to decline or withdraw your consent at any time—except for processes that have already occurred. However, you may object to us using your information in cases where we rely on legitimate interest, if so you will not have access to the use of our services.

INFORMATION SECURITY AND RETENTION
Security of Your Information
Our site is scanned and tested regularly in order to keep up with the most current protective internet practices to safeguard your information. We use various trusted hosting providers to protect your information and prevent loss and misuse of your data. Infrastructures such as hardware and software firewalls, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, data encryption, backups, identity and access control, and other security measures are employed to safeguard your trust.
However, no security system is impenetrable. Although we try our best to keep your data secure and private, we cannot guarantee full protection of your provided information because of the nature of the internet and its inherent risks.
Retention of Your Information
As long as your account is active or open with us, we will need your information to continue our operations. Some of your information will be retained to enforce our rights and agreements, comply with business or legal obligations, maintain security, and any other actions deemed necessary or permitted by law.
If your account has expired or has been canceled, or when those terms are no longer in force, you will have the option of anonymizing your personal information using controls located within your MyAccount page.
THE RIGHT TO ACCESS AND CONTROL YOUR INFORMATION
It is within your rights to access and control your own personal data. You are free to make changes to, access, or delete your personal information and stipulate whether such data is collected, used, and shared. This section will highlight details on how you can make requests and exercise your rights in regard to the control and access to your information. All of these choices can be done in your account settings within your MyAccount page.
Deletion of some information may not be possible if you wish to continue using our services. For data that is controlled by third parties, you’ll have to contact them to have your information deleted or restricted. In cases where there is a dispute over the use of information we will limit further use until the dispute is settled.
