Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is effective as of and was last updated on July 20, 2012.


1. General.

 This privacy policy (this "Privacy Policy") is designed to inform you about the type of information that

Massiv ("we," "us," or "our") may gather or collect from you in connection with your use of this site (this

"Site"). It also explains the conditions under which we use and disclose that information, and your rights in

relation to that information.

The procedures for modifying or changing this Privacy Policy in the future are discussed in Section 5 of

this document.

2. Gathering, Use and Disclosure of Non-Personally-Identifying Information.

 We collect both Non-Personally-Identifying Information and Personally-Identifying Information from you.

"Non–Personally–Identifying Information" is information that, without the aid of additional information,

cannot be directly associated with a specific person or entity. "Personally–Identifying Information," by

contrast, is information such as a name or email address that, without more, can be directly associated

with a specific person or entity.

2.1. Gathering Non-Personally-Identifying Information.

i. Web Browsers.  Like most site operators, we gather Non-Personally-Identifying Information from you of

the sort that web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available. That information includes

your Internet Protocol ("IP") address, operating system and browser type, and the locations of the web

pages you view right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving this Site.

ii. Web Cookies.  A "Web Cookie" is a string of information that a site stores on your computer, and your

browser provides to this Site, each time you submit a query to this Site. We may use Web Cookies to

track the pages that you visit during each Site session, both to help us improve your experience and to

help us understand how this Site is being used.






iii. Web Beacons.  A "Web Beacon" is an object that is embedded in a web page. It is usually invisible to

you but allows site operators to check whether you have viewed a particular web page or email

communication. We may place Web Beacons on pages of this Site and in emails we send to you.

You may not decline Web Beacons. However, they may be rendered ineffective by declining all cookies

or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or

decline cookies on an individual basis.

iv. Third Parties' Use of Web Beacons and Web Cookies.  This Site may include third-party

advertising, links to other sites, and other content from third party businesses. The content posted by

these parties will be reasonably identifiable as coming from a third party. These third-party sites,

businesses, and advertisers, or advertising companies working on their behalf, sometimes use Web

Beacons and Web Cookies to measure the effectiveness of their ads, personalize or optimize advertising

content and to track users who link from their respective sites to this Site, but this third party technology

does not permit them to access your Personal Information.

We do not have access to or control over Web Beacons or Web Cookies that these third parties may use,

and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party websites or businesses are not covered


by this Privacy Policy but are covered by their respective privacy policies as is described in more detail in

Section 5 below.

Some third party advertising companies may provide a mechanism to opt-out of their technology. For

more information about these partners and links to their privacy policies, please view each third party’s


2.2. Use of Non-Personally-Identifying Information.  We analyze Non–Personally–Identifying

Information gathered from users of this Site to help us better understand how this Site is being used. By

identifying patterns and trends in usage, we are able to better design this Site to improve your

experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use. We link information gathered using Non-

Personally-Identifying Information to Personally-Identifying Information.

2.3. Disclosure of Non-Personally-Identifying Information.  From time to time, we may also release

the Non–Personally–Identifying Information gathered from Site users in the aggregate, such as by

publishing a report on trends in the usage of this Site.

3. Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personally–Identifying Information.

 As defined above, Personally-Identifying Information is information that can be directly associated with a

specific person or entity. We will only collect Personally-Identifying Information that you knowingly submit

to us. We will not disclose your Personally-Identifying Information to third parties unless we obtain your

permission to do so at the time we collect it, except as set forth below:

3.1. Collecting Personally-Identifying Information from Site Users.

i. Registration and Other Information Provided to Us.  When you register with this Site, you may be

asked to disclose Personally–Identifying Information. You may also choose to submit Personally-

Identifying Information to us when you send us an email, set up a profile or use any interactive features

and services that we may make available from time to time on this Site.

ii. Personally-Identifying Information Provided by our Affiliates and Business Partners.  We may

also obtain Personal Information about you from our affiliates and business partners, based on

information that has been shared with or made available to them.

3.2. Use of Personally-Identifying Information.  We may use the Personally-Identifiable Information

that you submit for any purposes related to our business. We may combine Personally-Identifiable

Information that you provide to us with Personally-Identifiable Information about you that we obtain from

our affiliates and business partners.

3.3. Disclosure of Personally-Identifying Information.  As described in Section 3.1 ("Collecting

Personally–Identifying Information from Site Users"), users may, at their option, disclose their own

Personally-Identifying Information by any means they choose. We will disclose Personally-Identifying

Information in the following circumstances:

i. Surveys.  From time to time, we may also ask you to participate in surveys for our general business

and marketing purposes. Any Personally-Identifying Information provided to us in connection with a

survey will be used only in relation to that survey, and will be disclosed to third parties not bound by this

Privacy Policy only in non-personally-identifying, aggregated form;

ii. Contests, Giveaways and other Promotions.  From time to time, we may offer you the opportunity to

participate in contests, giveaways and other promotions. Any information submitted in connection with

promotions will be subject to the terms of the promotion, not this Privacy Policy. You will be given the

option to consent to the use of your Personally-Identifying Information at the time you sign up for the

promotion. You will not be required to participate in any promotion;

iii. Employees, Third-Party Processors, Third-Party Service Providers and Third Party Affiliates.

 We will disclose Personally-Identifying Information to our employees, contractors, affiliates, distributors,

dealers, vendors and suppliers who process Personally-Identifying Information on our behalf, participate


with us in the provision or operation of this Site, provide you with services or make potential opportunities

available to you;

iv. By Law, to Protect Rights and to Comply with Our Policies.  We disclose Personally-Identifying

information if: (1) required to do so by law, or in response to a subpoena or court order; (2) we believe in

our sole discretion that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect against fraud, to protect the property

or other rights of us or other users, third parties or the public at large; or (3) we believe that you have

abused the service by using it to attack other systems or to gain unauthorized access to any other

system, to engage in spamming or otherwise to violate applicable laws;

v. Business Transfers; Bankruptcy.  We reserve the right to transfer all Personally-Identifying

Information in our possession to a successor entity in the event of a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy or

other sale of all or a portion of our assets. Other than to the extent ordered by a bankruptcy or other court,

the use and disclosure of all transferred Personally-Identifying Information will be subject to this Privacy

Policy, or to a new privacy policy if you are given notice of that new privacy policy and you affirmatively

opt-in to accept it. Personally-Identifying Information submitted or collected after a transfer, however, may

be subject to a new privacy policy adopted by the successor entity;

vi. Marketing Communications.  We may email you about products and services that we believe may

be of interest to you. If you wish to opt-out of receiving marketing materials from us, please follow the

instructions at the bottom of each email for opting out; or

vii. Email Service.  You may have the opportunity to use a service to send electronic mail to another

user or email list. In such cases, your valid email address and real name will be included with such

messages. In order to prevent abuse, you may not opt out of such a display, but you may choose to

refrain from using this service to transmit an email message.

4. Collection and Use of Information by Third Parties.

 Third parties are under no obligation to comply with this Privacy Policy with respect to Personally-

Identifying Information that you provide directly to those third parties or that those third parties collect for

themselves. We do not control the third-party sites that may be accessible through this Site. Thus, this

Privacy Policy does not apply to information provided to third-party sites or gathered by the third parties

that operate them. Before visiting a third-party site, whether by means of a link on this Site or otherwise,

and before providing any Personally-Identifying Information to any third party, you should inform yourself

of the privacy policies and practices (if any) of the third party responsible for that site, and should take

those steps necessary to your discretion, to protect your privacy.

5. Privacy Policy Changes.

 Because of changes in technology and the growth and development of our business, or for other

business reasons, we may need to modify this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will alert you by email

if this policy is revised (if you have given us your email address), and we will post a copy of the new policy

with its effective date on this Site. It is therefore important that you register with the site and notify us if

you change your email address. If you do not provide us with a current email address, you should

regularly review this policy to ensure that you are informed of any changes.
